An interview with Scott Kiloby, Parts 1 and 2
This is an interesting Yelp review of the Science and Nonduality Conference 2011:
10/28/2011 First to Review
This was the first time
that I have attended the Science and Nonduality Conference and I
was impressed by all of the Western Buddha's gathered together in
the same place, at the same time. It was something akin to a
Western version of the Kumbha Mela but just on a smaller scale. I
am glad that I was present to see and to experience this.
It was truly amazing to be in the presence of so many beings who have a loving awareness, presence and energy. I found the whole experience to be beneficial, healing and uplifting. I especially enjoyed the spontaneity, carefree and open attitude of the majority of the participants. The impromptu conversations and deep philosophical discussions in the hallways made me feel like I was with people who were speaking the same language. I absorbed much from the presenters that was fresh.
I do think that the nonduality aspect of the Conference is being given more weight than the science side and that is problematical if we intend to create a new society based on new models and new technologies. I don't see "Enlightenment" as a panacea, as I think that we must address and solve the bulk of our problems through knowledge and practical applications, rather than through wishful thinking. I think that fresh philosophical, theoretical and practical models are possible but...we must get back to Beginner's Mind...scrap our assumptions and start fresh!
There are two main areas that I would like to see more fully developed at or through future SAND Conferences: 1. Methodologies for spiritual realization, and, 2. New Science and New Technology
Here is a list of some of the discussions/presentations that I didn't see that I would like to see at future SAND Conferences:
1. Cymatics - The Relationship Between Frequency and Form
2. Tao Te Ching and Nonduality
3. Richard Rose - Philosophy/Spirituality
4. G. I. Gurdjieff - Cosmology/Psychology
5. Walter Russell - Model of Reality
6. Albert Roy Davis/Walter C. Rawls - Theory of Magnetic Currents
7. Douglas Harding - Clear Seeing Methodology
8. Kundalini - Exploration of the Kundalini Process
9. Psychology as Physics - Is the Psyche Composed of Gaseous/Plasma Substance that is Formed by Magneto/Electro/Frequency Based Forces
10. Transmission - What is Spiritual Transmission and How Is it Effected
Additional subjects mentioned or suggested by other participants/presenters:
1. Syntropy - The Opposite or Corrolary of Entropy
2. Modeling - Better 3D Mathematical Models to Define/Describe Reality
3. No-Matter - The Concept of "Matter" as Unnecessary, False or Misleading
4. Single-String Theory - The Theory that Reality is One Contiguous or Continuous String
5. Nondualistic Language - Is it Possible to Make the English Language More Relational or Nondualistic?
6. Intimate Relationships - Do the Sexual Hang-Ups/Inhibitions Disappear After Self-Realization?
7. New Society - What Will A New Society Look Like?
I look forward to more collaboration in-between SAND Conferences and at the next Science and Nonduality Conference. I thank the organizers, sponsors, presenters and participants for making it what it was. Also, I want to especially thank the staff at the Embassy Suites, both the restaurant staff for good meals and the Hotel staff for a good experience.
