Comments on “Dr. Bronner’s monist soap”


Nonsense and Soap

That was fun. I have used that soap in the past – especially on camping trips. Must say, never read the labels in depth because they seemed generated as intentional nonsense. Your post has confirmed both. Smile.

But it is good to see someone can entertain pure nonsense and still hold a job and even prosper.

absolute subjectivity

Dr. Bronner is perhaps a monist, but it’s important to understand many so-called monists are actually nondualists. Absolute subjectivity is a legitimate metaphor for nondualism.

monism and nondualism

Hi David,

“Nondualism” is often used to mean the same thing as “monism.”

There’s also a Buddhist version that is distinct from monism (but hard to formulate). I’m not sure if that’s what you have in mind?

What do you mean “absolute subjectivity”? I’m not familiar with the term. I googled it and, after a few quick looks, it appears that different people use it to mean several different things.

“watering Babylon-roof-gardens & 800 billion Israel-Milorganite fruit trees, guarded by Swiss 6000 year Universal Military Training!”

Obviously a reference to the Babylonian Talmud, The Hebrew Torah and the Nation-State of Israel (6,000 Universal Military Training).
