J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm – Ojai 1981 – Group Discussion – Computers, thought and insight
If the computer can do the things thought can do, what happens to man?
A human being may have the capacity for insight; the computer has not because it’s programmed by the human mind which is itself limited.
Insight may take place in absolute silence.
A perception in which there is no division as perceiver and perceived.
Does the mechanical process of thinking ever stop or is the brain is perpetually occupied?
The brain is infinite; it’s not your brain or my brain; it’s not personal.
From a new perception you can go on to reason, but if you start from logic you are starting from what you know, which is fundamentally wrong.
Once you have insight, thought can operate logically.
Insight is non-mechanical.
This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.
The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said, ’The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities… nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.’
We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti’s original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms.
Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
