Re: The Upcoming Generation

Why are you so afraid of everything? I would attribute this insecurity/fear to the competition that exists today. There is more demand for everything as population explodes and with the same amount of supply, there is competition rather than symbiosis in survival. Everyone thinks of his own, and is...

Feeling thoughts

Do you think you feel more, or do you feel you think more? Or Both? I think I feel more, but I don't think my feelings are true, neither do I feel my thoughts are true. In my humble opinion, thinking does not inhibit or destroy feelings, it rather actually complements them. Thinking is one stage ahe...

Re: On Material Relationships

The closest analogy to relationships anybody would think of is bonding in Chemistry. This has happened so many times, where science and life coincide, which shows how much they are inter-related. Like, repulsion of unlike poles, or friction between uneven surfaces ("They both can never get on well t...

Re: Idol Worship

Interesting. Really amusing how the reasons are cloaked, and how people have been following without thinking why. People "worship" for God to grant their wishes, rather than thank God for what they have. My idea about worship was somewhat the same, where the qualities of the Worshipped are acknowled...

Re: Dreams and Interpretation

Just curious... how do you interact with the subconscious? Do you symbolize it in any way? Could it be something like the belt of a catapult, while the two stones supporting it on either side might be the conscious and the unconscious. The deeper or the longer you stretch the belt, the more intense...

Re: Dreams and Interpretation

Hi Polonious21! Nice to see you here. What does that picture of yours represent? I see that the person is longing for something.. crying.. waiting... In my dreams I would get a quick flash like a snapshot of a place and time. But it would also hold smells, sensations, and emotions. I never remember ...

Re: Dreams and Interpretation

The image I get instead of a graphic 2dimensional radial chart is something more like that of the lenticular galaxy - and what is more important is the distance of a symbol to the center and its velocity The aim, I believe is to reach the main essence, which is, in this case, the Central Sun. Or in...

Re: Dreams and Interpretation

Thanks for sharing the bit about feathers Sagar, since moving to my current location last year for work I've been encountering feathers in nearly the same way - along paths mostly, since I walk everywhere and do not own a car. Hearing your story refreshes a bit of my faith. I continued pondering ov...

Re: Dreams and Interpretation

Today when I got up, I had this feathery feel in my hands, as though I had touched a feather. And again while coming back from my school, a feather fell right in front of me. Later when I looked up on the net, I found that they meant that I am on my path to spiritual progression: When you find feath...

Re: Purpose of the Antiquatis Forums

What is YOUR purpose/process in interacting via the forum? Sorry for the late reply, now when the discussion has taken a different dimension. I see that the forum has people from all over the globe [ at least regions representing that particular part of the globe], and naturally, you all have diffe...

Re: Ramayana

This process is supposed to happen every time in the Yuga system, and the height of men shrank every Yuga. I always draw small-scale diagrams in Biology exams - when I drew an elephant, it looked like a pig with a trunk when compared to my friends' diagrams! Now if anyone argues about the size, I k...

They use only their index finger. I bet you couldn't lift 20 lb with only the index finger.


Does anyone know where they quarried this stone from?

The Bridge - Rama setu

Rama now arrives with his whole army, crosses the 'ocean' on a bridge made in 5 days, and vanquishes Ravana's place along with Ravana. The bridge was made up of rocks which actually floated, right? It is really worth wondering: how could stones float? Is there really some material on which we can w...

Re: Classes and Grades

What I have personally found is that the listening process is predominantly initiated by the teacher - a good teacher listens, and that almost guarantees that the class listens. We had an English teacher in 11th Standard, who was the only person among the teachers who would encourage people to spea...

Re: Classes and Grades

I partly agree with the idea of the division of classes according to interests( But interests need to be created.A student cannot be interested in a subject he doesn't know.I will say a "positive attitude towards learning").The main duty of the students is to follow the teacher's instructions.They s...
