Re: Is the US President supposed to represent all the people?

I think you're wrong, just like before, when you said that crook was going to surely be elected instead of President Donald J. Trump.

Have you seen the fake Hillary site? It's fake news of what would have been, had she been The Man.

Some good satire.

Re: Reply to Scott Hughes

The important thing here is for a concerned reader not to fall victim to meaningless attacks and intimidation. Scott Hughes wrote a meaningful article on what a philosopher is. You owe it to yourself to contemplate it and consider why as a whole our species is incapable of it and instead descends i...

Re: I know God - im sure you have questions.

Touchy. Rather sophomoric from a good thinker.

If you think God does not exist, why do you care what pronoun designates God, when a lack of pronoun would be gramatically cumbersome?

For that matter, I don't think people who believe in God give a hoot in hell what pronoun is used.

Re: Proposition (1)

Ain’t it the truth, although knowledge of everything except knowledge of one's own existence, including fate, is an inference. Somehow, movement does have order. Even chaos can transform into order, like one of those magic-eye pictures, where focus must change to perceive the order that was always t...

Re: Proposition (1)

Re: entropy, order, disorder, chaos, stasis so the universe has no hope of lasting as it currently is and all will fall to stillness and darkness and no more light I tend to believe the universe will collapse and become chaotic and than start recycling it's energies . at some point the universe beca...

Re: Got any good jokes?

Here’s an original play on words that may cause slaps on knees. Simply because no change indicates the most stable state, does not imply that all states leading to entropy proceed in a uniformly timely sequence of stability. In fact, the change from unstable to stable is often sudden and energetic …...

Re: Music

It’s not really irony, or sarcasm, or mockery, or parody, or dada, although it is a bit surreal, funny, strange, juxtaposed, weird if not irreverent. What is it? What’s the label? Art?

Re: Proposition (1)

I'm sorry, but you stepped out of sequence. I asked the question. Now, you must answer, not ask questions. In order to do so, you must clarify your understanding of entropy. Do some reading, or thinking. I won't do it for you, but to not be a total jerk, I'll tell you what I think. Via thinking, it ...

Re: Dualism?

“Sri Ramana maintained that the universe is sustained by the power of the Self. Since theists normally attribute this power to God he often used the word God as a synonym for the Self. He also used the words Brahman, the supreme being of Hinduism, and Siva, a Hindu name for God, in the same way. Sr...

Re: Dualism?

I don't want to have to conform to a Christian standard but it is good to recognize a higher authority than any group or individual so long as the standard promotes the general welfare. “To a few mature persons the Lord shines as the formless light of knowledge and imparts awareness of the truth.” ...

heart in a totally different sense. I gave a totally different definition using the very word Right, so you mean heart in the sense of it not being a heart? Probably any specific question you can think of on the heart topic (in what is likely osgart's sense) has been asked in the Q&A format of ...

Re: Proposition (1)

osgart wrote:I would think that entropy leads to total instability and than chaos again. but does chaos henceforth turn back into order and who or what made order out of chaos in the first place

I think that increasing entropy leads to greater stability. Am I wrong?
