Philosopher’s Crystal and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The throne room scene is astonishingly similar to that described in the epilogue of Philosopher’s Crystal (published in 2016).

Three protagonists who found their way into this chamber are suprisingly similar to protagonists of Philosopher’s Crystal (two of them being in identical familiar relationship in both plots).

How nice, so it seems that this motive is rather universal (I would not give more details in order not to spoil the movie).

Vusmeyanity

Painting by Jarosław Jaśnikowski, taken from this site

Vusmeyanity – something that dreamwords and the world (worlds?) of waking life have in common – their relative unreality as opposed to the reality of subject to whom all these worlds are given yet which is not an element of any of them.

Oneiric Personalism – a Short Dialogue about God and my Self

I could imagine such a dialogue:

–  The world is my dream.

– You claim that the whole world is just a dream of Marcin Dolecki?

– No, it’s a dream of my real self.

– What then is your real self?

– It’s such an object which is not an object at all.

– I’m afraid, your words seem to be senseless.

– I’ll try to explain them. I’m not an object at all, therefore I cannot “see” myself directly, so I try to look at the mirror, and God is my perfect mirror, because my self and God have the same nature.

– So you claim to be God?!

– Marcin Dolecki is not God.

– You try to explain one unknown – the self – by other unknown – God? Isn’t it a quackery?

– I do not know.

 

Metaphysics definitely is not a piece of cake.

Oneiric Personalism and the Existence of God

Any attempt to prove the existence of God is pointless, because if God exists, Its existence will be a precondition of proving anything (since it will be a final precondition of all phenomena), therefore any proof would be a misunderstanding; if God doesn’t exist, any proof will be futile.

According to oneiric personalism, the existence of God is as obvious as the existence of my Self (the Dreamer of the world), because God and the Self are two aspects of the Absolute. I cannot prove it, I can only encourage others: try to “see” it for yourself.

God is neither personal nor non-personal, neither this nor that, God just Is.

An attempt to define being is a misunderstanding, because existence is a precondition of defining anything.

Nevertheless, the existence of God has no ethical consequences.

Oneiric Personalism – A Dream of Being a Person

The Absolute dreams IT is a person: [Marcin Dolecki] (readers of this post could insert their own names).

There is a serious problem with the sentence above: nothing could be said about the Absolute (apart from assuming ITS existence), because the existence of the Absolute enables us to say anything at all, therefore the Absolute cannot be thought of as a complicated living organism, capable of dreaming, so “The Absolute dreams IT is a person”, is merely a metaphor.

This metaphor means to me I am more real than the world around me, my body, and even my thoughts and will.
