Me?? Confrontational??? Surely you jest? A troll? Nope. I don't feel particularly trollish. Anyway, back to the fun
1. No you did not attempt to define "levels of knowledge". You used the phrase in your first post as if it was relevant to something. Again... I
will ask... how can two people be on the same "level of knowledge" in your estimation, when you cannot define what a "level of knowledge" is, how
many levels there are, what differentiates one level from another, and just how, when, and by whom these things were decided.
Ahhh, yes, let's not forget the graphic you provided. I'm guessing the point of which was to show how two people can come to the same conclusion
without communicating yes? First off, point C is by no means a certainty no matter how you look at it. Second, none of it is relevant until you can
explain, with any degree of certainty, how both A and B decide to dig a tunnel? Let alone where it begins, ends or which direction it goes.
2. Indeed... consciousness is a mystery. Last I looked though, we were speaking of enlightenment and not consciousness. The two are different yes?
Should I apply your arguments for consciousness to enlightenment? Well, I've no problem with that, but I'll let you speak for yourself.
Again... back to the original point of contention... if those that know usually do keep their mouths shut... how do you know? Are you one of these
"people who know"? And if so ... why are you talking about it instead of keeping your mouth shut? And how do you know the percentage of "people
that know" and do actually keep their mouths shut versus the percentage of "people that know" and talk about this thing they know? If you've no
solid numbers for either of these groups how can you describe one or the other as being usual?
