    Short and sweet and not complete.

    Gnosis is knowledge via experience of it. Examples would be, fire burns and water is wet. We can experience what has created us but, we must make the effort of access and communicate with it, ask for example in the experiential world and see them. It is what magicians do. Magic is our birthright and how the Universe works but, first one must understand this word, magic, and have a gnosis of it. We do not truly know anything until we experience it as reality. Some call belief magical thinking but, it is in fact, fantasy thinking.

    That 'something more' imo is our consciousness, our spirit, our soul, all of them. It's easy to rag on humans and their failings, and much of that is directly tied in to this physical experience. Our souls and consciousness are a bit above this experience and guide us.

    Also common sense is closely related to morality.

    Nice delineation...they are surely different.

    Our minds have been shackled, denying full entry into our hearts and, therefore, Wisdom.

    Wasn't you, it was the app and, perhaps, a browser incompatibility. Downloading it was the fix. See above for edited reply.

    I am comfortable with being ignored or misunderstood. I also yield to good arguments and other wisdom should it be presented to me.

    In fairness to the thread though, messages to me are better left on my visitor page or a PM.

    (Great, now the microphone has made it all sound bung.)

    Exactly Modwiz, I'm certain many agree, that is all there is to go on. All the rest is basically just speculation, and to no real fault of our own we can get drawn into forming sides on speculations, often out of thin air. Like a fart in a school assembly after the last round of giggling stopped.
    Just wanted to try and point out the dynamic I see without triggering the wrong reaction. And yeah maybe the mangled voice messages worked perfectly in that respect!
    This getting up early for work thing makes one a bit tired when you have been keeping odd hours! I should have probably just waited another few days ha.

    Oh, it sounds like we have our wires crossed on what I was saying. I'm not referring to anyone in particular. I am just as much including acknowledging myself when ever I make comments. This is about the conversation in the last page or so.

    I follow that it was addressed to a general audience of which I am a part, yes? As part of that audience, I replied.

    I also see the point of having them in the thread, after I wrote about the visitor message. Took me a moment to realize others will also listen and may not need to download them first. I am sure they will appreciate hearing your thoughts with a voice.

    I do understand my replies were confusing without that realization. Apologies.

    Agreed. They are very valuable. As an observer, another role in addition to participant, there is a good deal of data emerging.
