Excuse me for promptly taking advantage of my newfound knowledge of your personal email address, but I have some fundamental issues that I very much hope to get resolution on before I more wholeheartedly embrace Neothink and subscribe to the secret website. I will list them below, and if/when you can give them consideration, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on them.
1) Mysticism in your definition is following external authorities, and in the context of religions this is described as following supposed seers who hallucinated their communions & conversations with divine beings such as gods & angels.
NeoThink is a system in which we, called apprentices, are to follow your external guidance without meeting you, querying you, nor gaining any other means to independently assess you for ourselves. That makes all NeoThink apprentices followers of you as their external authority and thus mystics by your own definition. Further, core tenets of NeoThink are the Twelve Visions. In the way you describe them, they came to you as your own hallucinations.
Because I am already very much a rational and critical thinker, these contradictions were patently and immediately self-evident to me. All NeoThink apprentices who don’t question them (or at least detect them) are more lemmings than self-leaders. As I said above, I regard them in your category of ‘Mystics’ who will follow a new pied-piper on mystical faith.
2) There is a category withing mysticism that I embrace and I have to wonder if it excludes me from NeoThink. I practice yoga and meditation which you list as mystic pursuits that destroy values. These pursuits have nothing to do with reliance upon nor following of external authorities. They are predicated on the notion that deep within every human lies divinity or divine essence (which seems compatible with you conception of Zon as I have so-far encountered it). However, no faith nor blind obeisance to any being or entity involved. These are empirical, experiential pursuits whose premise is that, by calming the mind one can penetrate to a deeper conscious essence (“when the surface of a pool becomes calm, it becomes possible to see into its depths”). I have made such progress (cleared useless beliefs, fears, reactivities, habits, etc.) with these and similar (even somewhat more mystical) practices that I will not relinquish them. Suffice to say, I have already done my diligence on these ‘mystic’ practices through empirical, experiential personal testing and have found such unequivocal and amazing power and benefits to them that I simply will not reject them for NeoThink. Please let me know if this precludes me from continuing my apprenticeship.
3) The promises/claims made in the offering letters that I received from NeoThink were overinflated, and the NMS involves enticing people using the laws of nature rather than directly addressing the essence of the marketed value. I do not see how these deceptions can be perpetrated by people whose charter is to operate everywhere and at all times with fully integrated honesty. Please explain.
In your writings there are numerous other contradictions, as well as other notions that you expect apprentices to accept mystically (e.g., the “self-evident” existence of the ‘Computer of the Universe’). But rather than make this a burdensome tome laden with critical questions, it would be quite sufficient for me for now if you could just address the ones I’ve listed. I am a PhD physical scientist and for me all sciences and systems that are based on rationality must prove their fundaments (or admit that they are taken assumptions), and from there prove through logic and reason all the derived inferences and conclusions. Also, any system that claims to be rationally-based must be self-consistent within itself and entirely free from contradictions. That is what a science is.
Thank you for all the earnest work you have done to better mankind.
