Abstract Vinodorus, the drunkard, explains that he cannot stand success; he works hard, achieves his goal, and then throws all away in a ruinous drinking bout.

Pierre leads the Friday night NS attenders through a 'reminder' session, regarding what they already know about the Providential world they live in (though it can certainly seem the opposite). This subject is also continued in the next morning's Saturday chat .

Another great Friday night with Pierre. As he has so often done over the years, he takes a seat and lets us try our hand at dreamwork and mid-wifery with each other, only jumping in to help when we get stuck. Belinda does two dreams, first with Josh as "midwife", then on the second dream with JeffL as midwife. Jed explores his dream with JeffL taking an initial shot at being the midwife, then Pierre taking over. JulieP midwifes Don on his dream, and shows us all how it is done. :-)...

I am trying to use the restroom in some place that seems like a motel in Mexico, in kind of a run-down, ghetto kind of neighbourhood. I think I have a room there; I'm staying there temporarily. I need to pee. I'm about to pee and there’s somebody chasing me. That somebody is just outside of the door of my stall and they’re trying to get in. I think it’s a little man. He’s out to...

Synopsis Pierre leads the Noetic Society Parmenides study group through another morning of study. Lately we've been taking a break from the Parmenides, going through Proclus' Theology of Plato (*) instead, in order to see how Proclus lays out the 14 orders of gods implied in the Parmenides. Today we started with a few Greek vocabulary from Chapter 18 of Book 3. But then there was a dialogue with Julie that lasted about 30 minutes about the role of light and divinity from a quote in Chapter 18....

Synopsis Pierre opens up the question of what is a daemon in the Platonic world. Since Plato has emphasized rational daemons (such as the daemon, Love , in his Symposium , we have studied these before. Tonight Pierre reviews these, but also asks, what, then, is an irrational daemon? Note: Pierre later shared with me that he was not satisfied with tonight's talk, and that the talk he prepared and gave two weeks later on February 7th was much better organized and thought out. Topic Highlights...

Synopsis Eric explores a recent dream with Pierre's help. Dream Text EricG's Dream -- Sun 2 Feb 2020 It was like being in a video game, but the feeling of the environment was much more real. I was a relatively low rank or level in this world, and I had just killed someone in a fight who was of a similar rank. I went to inspect and pick up his equipment and armor to compare its quality to mine. His weapon and some of his armor were notably better than mine, so I replaced those pieces of...

The Role of 'Difference' Rejection of the idea of likeness and unlikeness being inherent in the selves (in the 5th) Therefore, we can turn it around and say, is it not interesting that likeness and unlikeness ARE inherent in selves? For if they were inherent in selves, they could then be said to be like and unlike....
