"No feeling"

Yeah, sorry, this should have been in its own thread. Thanks in advance, Shaun.

Are you saying there is no feeling/sensing the other because in a complete unity there is no other? ...that, insofaras X is in union with Y "they" are no longer X and Y, but rather some new singularity, Z?
Would you mind also elaborating on what you mean by "no feeling"?
Take care,
Matt

Re: "No feeling"

It would seem that, at this point, a good response would be to whack the one questioning to see if it is sensed / felt.

Granted, though, I lack the context from the initial thread.

Re: "No feeling"

I would aver that in order to be understood, "it has to be not felt," (IHTBNF), but that would leave the impression that I'm merely cracking a cheap and predictable joke (ACAPJ).

So, I'm not going to do that, because it's really much more than ACAPJ, which isn't to say that it's not that.

If a Matt gets hit in the woods but no one's around to hear it, does it make a sound? Of course the answer is no...and I just got some dust in my eyes.

I totally and utterly disagree; it is obvious that it really all depends upon Barbara Streisand being around or having good teeth.

Re: "No feeling"

I thought it depended on a red wheelbarrow glazed with rainwater beside the white chickens.

Now I'm really confused.
