https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egocentric_presentism Are modern Chinese, Japanese and Korean schools of Buddhism viewed as egocentric presentism? Are there any teachings in modern Chinese and Japanese schools of Buddhism that support egocentric presentism? Are there any teachings in modern Chinese and Japanese schools of Buddhism that would say that all people can have consciousness, but they do not have thoughts, emotions, memories and sensations? Thank you.
There are Buddhist meditation practices, aimed at realising something like Egocentric Presentism, I'd say, about ordinary samsaric experience:
"...reflect on your beginningless lives in this cycle of existence and that through many of your lives you have had to depend on your mothers. There is not a single living being that you can definitely point to as not having been your mother in the past." Dalai Lama
The longest unit of time in Buddhist thought is reckoned to be around 335 billion years, a significant fraction of our current estimate of the length of time over which stars will burn. Contemplating such vast timescales, along with the wheel of becoming, has the effect of recognising you have been in all situations and will be again. I've drawn comparison with Rawl's theory of justice, which is I'd guess a clearer example of egocentric presentism?
The metaphor for sunyata or interbeing Indra's Net is perhaps relevant.
There is an academic interpretation of the function of awakening, as intersubjective virtuosity. Which might relate.
Bit of a stretch, and egocentric intrinsically sounds like a bad fit except in describing samsara.
