I must let you know that philosophy is the logical study of the ideal forms; philosophy is the science of meaning of things such as the Good, Justice,
Freedom, Natural Mind, Reality... Your rejection of belief in the natural mind, and your claim that only the "spiritual" perception exists indicates
that you don't believe in the ideal forms, the objects of philosophical study, and your ideological stance is inherently anti-philosophical. In that
way, your thread content is irrelevant to a Philosophy & Metaphysics forum, and belongs more in a spirituality or religion forum. Your comment that
good and bad are only a matter of perception, and so you wouldn't object to joining the "borg" collective, because you would choose to perceive
that experience as good, and because you think that only one mind exists anyway, shows that you are a moral relativist, and solipsist spiritualist --
Those are not rational stances, and as such are irrelevant to philosophical aims. Philosophy demands for rational investigation into the conceptual
world, yet that is not what you seek here, only to promote and talk irrationally about solipsist spiritualist dogma.
Please be aware, Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato, etc, the great philosophers of western intellectual history were opposed to the relativists which
they called sophists. I must add, moral relativism is loved by the psychopaths, because they feel they are rationalizing evil through it, or, should I
say, irrationalizing evil based on the claim evil is only a matter of perception, so they can do no wrong. One of the most incredible admissions I
have ever heard online: You wouldn't mind joining the "borg" collective! Incredible!
I am tired of these pathological spiritualists trying to hijack the philosophy forums online with fundamentally anti-philosophical, relativist
