"but let them get a Nagarjuna for example."

 

Now that would be interesting. (Given they could get over the initial shock of discovering the use of perspicuous logic being employed in the service of a religious teaching, heh.)

 

"Dahl är ett svenskt eller norskt namn eller hur?"

 

Yep! It's originally a Norwegian surname, I think, but I'm from Sweden and haven't been able to spot any Norwegians in my family tree so far. Jag antar att du också är från Sverige? Trevligt att råkas! :)

Nej, jag är fransman men jag har tidigare bott i Sverige några år när jag var yngre - som gästdoktorand på Karolinska Institutet, i Stockholm. jag jobbade på min tes då.

 

Yes Nargarjuna is another business to deal with.

 

cheers

Ah, trevligt! Själv pluggade jag Franska i 3 år men kommer inte ihåg någonting. :P

 

"jag jobbade på min tes då."

 

Vilken tes var det, om man får fråga?

Det är gammal skit idag, förstås, hahahhaah.

Inom medicin,  human genetik, studier om rekombinanter och vissa syndromer (so kallad överkänslighet då)relaterade till en modififiering av vissa enzymstrukturer. Ingenting märkvärdigt idag, 70-talet grejer. Man visste så "lite "om genetik vid den tiden, före HUGO.

Well otherwise, since those days I turned to the psychology domain, My teaching and consult job.

 

Interesting!

 

Did you know that within a couple of years, we'll be able to sequence our whole genome for like 1000 or 500 bucks. Pretty cool. I wonder what kind of applications this new world, where one's private genome is just another file to store on Google Docs, will bring. :)

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
