    @cliffcox66 You said “The world moves so fast and people are on a different sync, so anything out of the world’s pace holds no interest to those who are part of the fast paced world. ” Did you mean this: The world moves so fast, so those who are part of the fast paced world are not interested in anything out of the world’s pace”.

    I love Shinzen’s work and I listen to Science of Enlightenment daily. At the end of that work he states that he would love to see a generation of people into both science and meditation to create some leading edge breakthroughs. I am a Computer Science major looking to do just that. Thanks Shinzen for your amazing insight, leadership, and generosity. PS. I am currently working through some of those icky-sticky sensations that he discusses during my practice. It is TOUGH.

    Your meditative mind is far more fast paced than it seems at first glance. Your meditative mind is a microcosm of the joyous, agonizing, perplexing and astonising world that unfolds with every second.

    Thank you Google 😀

    @Aprinsa it is difficult for people who do not want to follow this pathway. But for those with the intent and desire to attain this path, every second is a treasure, and fascinating. The world moves so fast and people are on a different sync, so anything out of the world’s pace holds no interest to those who are part of the fast paced world.

    Am I the only one who finds it really hard to CONCENTRATE on extremely long, slooooowwww talks on meditation and mindfulness? 😛 When I become a Zen master, then I’ll finish listening to this. 😉

    @chreko For now–more trouble then it’s worth. There are more and more affordable bio-feedback machines available, I personally own the GSR2 Galvanic skin response and the StarWars Force Trainer toy. Neither one is of high enough quality that I would recommend it, also there is a huge lag in response when it does work.

    Measuring how long you can meditate before it’s too much will be 1 way to monitor progress. I also prefer the Zen breath counting method over mindful method for this reason.

    I absolutely love Shinzen, I listened to “the science of meditation” about 10 times throughout highschool. You taught me what meditation is Shinzen.

    @gingerburney thanks!

    @chreko In the Buddhist tradition, there are nine levels of concentration (or “mental abidings”). The first four are measured by the length of time one can remain concentrated on the object. After that, one can remain on the object for the entire session, but the strength of the concentration alters and one’s attention can still become split. More info is available online if you search for “the nine mental abidings”.

    @chreko What you do is, get a thermometer and attach it to an i-pod, then stick it up your ass and wait for the i-pod to say “you’re a genius chreko”

    i luv google…

    Unfortunately the speaker has not explained how to measure the basic concentration level. Does somebody know or could suggest how to measure the basic concentration level, so to monitor any progress? I heard that certain games could be useful, but I am grateful for any suggestions.

    @someman7 Interesting, have you read Michael Dowd’s book – Thank God for Evolution? What might he have invented? Are you saying Michael Dowd is wicked? It’s true Biblical literalists say that but progressive Christians get a lot from it.
    Agape btw is a kind of pantheist / evolutionary approach to Christianity too, maybe check out agapelive.

  23. someman7Aug 19, 2011

    @VirianFlux Dowd seems to invent new things, but the whole of revelation necessary for salvation was delivered by Jesus upon his first coming. I think it’s indicative that proponents from the article you mention are former Catholics.
    Let me now put this to rest once and for all: There is no unity between the wicked and the good. Lest good become wicked (anything but “sacred unity”) or wicked good (see II Corinthians 6:15 ).
    Now you said you’re open – read the books not just summaries “in full”.
