We had a previous discussion on free will here. Near the end of it was a link to Thompson's YouTube series on the topic from his combined neuroscientific and Buddhist perspective. And here is the Thompson thread, where he uses Damasio's ideas to elucidate top-down causation, which presupposes ipseity and will. I personally prefer these approaches to Blackmore's more traditional Buddhist no-self perspective.

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.

At the moment, this site is at full membership capacity and we are not admitting new members.  We are still getting new membership applications, however, so I am considering upgrading to the next level, which will allow for more members to join.  In the meantime, all discussions are open for viewing and we hope you will read and enjoy the content here.
