    Default Future Philosophical Paths

    I'm wondering what I should be doing when I'm off from school (like right now for a month) as far as following the path of a philosophy in the future goes, like which ones should I focus my time towards to further the evolution of my metaphysics? (see my signature for some of my past developments)

    Be sure to say which particular paths you yourself would like to follow as well, and it could give me or someone else some ideas. Also feel free to say what you believe might be best for me, or any other person on this forum.

    If you are asking "which branches of wisdom would grant me access to new insights regarding higher mysteries of the universe?" I would immediately suggest nihilism. It is a very in-depth and is bound to let you see the universe from a new perspective. Other than that I would suggest solipism, neo-platonism, arcane and esoteric knowledge from ancient history (aka stuff which you have never been exposed to and thus have never moulded your perceptions) including Manichaeism, Roman and Greek mystery religions, obscure branches of Eastern philosophy, Hinduism and Buddhism, ancient epics including the Vimanavatthu and Zoroastrianism.

    Western philosophy is a critique of philosophical paths. But I think that's the last thing you want, I think you are looking for a religious path.

    Perhaps you might like to read, "The Varieties of Religious Experience: a Study in Human Nature", by William James.

    You can discover William James by reading http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/toc/mo...c/JamVari.html

    This answer looks valid.

    I have a soft spot for Sufi mysticism... a bit more of a "heart" touch than your previous explorations, maybe.

    Buy a harmonica and start a blues band with me. Enlightenment is overrated.
