Oneiric Personalism – a Short Dialogue about God and my Self

Picture taken from this site

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.

A Letter from the Office of the President of Poland

I received a kind letter from the Chief of the Office of the Presidential Cabinet. I sent both versions of my novel: Polish (Jeden z możliwych światów) and American (Philosopher’s Crystal), to dr Andrzej Duda, the President of Poland – with dedications (quotes from St. Augustine and Wittgenstein).

The aim of this philosophical novel is to promote independent and critical thinking.
According to this letter, my books are now in the personal presidential library.
The President already had a book of my co-authorship: a dictionary of Polish discoverers and inventors. I wrote 80 biographies of chemists. Prof. Bolesław Orłowski (editor), gave him a copy and delivered a short lecture about this work in the Presidential Palace.

My political views were not the reason for sending the books to the President, because I do not sympathize with any of the Polish political parties.

I still believe that our President – sooner or later – will oppose the politics of dangerous appropriation of Poland by the ruling party, I hope he will do something really unexpected, he is able to do it. The fighting carried by dr Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the ruling party, cannot be won in a further perspective, because it is fueled by hate, fear and his excessive ambition, so it only hinders the necessary reforms in our country.

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.
