Re: The struggle the USA faces in accepting kindness for all

Totally wrong on every count. Nothing I write seems to register with you. And of course it could only be about 'envy' of rich people. I couldn't give a flying fuck if someone has a lot of money. They just happen to often be cunts, which is often how they got rich in the first place. And you can't h...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Secular Spirituality from the OP Really it is just a modern version of Aleister Crowley's Thelema and has been around for quite a while http://www.thelema101.com/intro Either way it is just glorified egoism worshiping society and sometimes Crowley Crowley as the Great Beast and provider of human me...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Secular Spirituality from the OP Secular spirituality is the adherence to a spiritual philosophy without adherence to a religion. Secular spirituality emphasizes the personal development of the individual, rather than a relationship with the divine. Secular spirituality is made up of the search for...

Re: Can you help me? What did Carl Jung mean here?

Though we know from experience that psychic processes are related to material ones,...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Man_Without_Words This is a story about a deaf man that never learned any language, including sign language, until he was 27. If he wasn't able to think prior to learning a language, then how did he feed, dress, and take care of himself? How can we learn a language a...

Never really was part of such a forum, usually posted my rants here and there, kept them to myself, or talked them over with people who could bear them. Let's see how it goes. :oops:
The dialectic is one of the roots of philosophy, welcome.

Re: God Exists Because God is Unnecessary.

So you're saying consciousness is constant because it's always observing, but changing because what it observes is constantly changing? Yes to a degree. But what is observes often times is frequency as a constant, when viewed 1 dimensionally, or "change" when viewed through the multiple dimensions ...

Re: Infinity has gotten stranger

I don't like the expressions duality - singularity - plurality. The three serve no purpose, their categorizing capacity is extremely simplistic. I always thought so too; just something philosophy makes more complicated that in reality is barely a problem. Philosophy seems more often a clash between...

Re: Infinity has gotten stranger

In these respects, what we understand of sets (although I do not believe set theory equates the set to "1" in itself) is in fact a duality conducive to two. All I'm saying is that a set is regarded as a single entity; yet it is identical to a collection of many entities. In that sense a set is a du...

Re: Dreams

JohnDoe, getting a Ph.D. is easy, compared to how hard it is to get a job with it. The competition is fierce, and only half of Ph.D.s have a pH level job. If you don't have the right connections, forget it. Your time to get a Ph.D. in order to get a high paying job is better spent looking for stamp...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

Aww Eodnhoj7, I was hoping to stay off the point of the OP - that horse has well and truly been flogged (and it turned out just to be a guy in a horsey suit anyway) and I quite enjoy dimensional chit chat :) Just start a thread in the metaphysics or math section on whatever topic you can think of, ...

Re: God Exists Because God is Unnecessary.

What do you mean, 'Consciousness as constant and changing'? It is unified in the sense it is self-reflective, or directed into itself. It is multiple in nature, or changing, as it exhibit a dual extramensional nature in which it projects past its own origins to observe the world around it. It is un...

Re: God Exists Because God is Unnecessary.

It seems to me consciousness is necessary for dualism, but conscious itself is not dual. Consciousness as constant and changing observes a dualism at minimum. Consciousness as "observing" is constant, what consciousness observes however is changing. The one splitting consciousness into two cannot s...
