Re: Is God competent or incompetent?

When you were born, what made you suckle if not an unconscious association with a pattern of thought that would pertain to the archetype within your father complex? IOW, where do you think your instincts are stored? That word you use, I call the Father Complex. This is not rocket science my friend....

Re: Best album ever made.

If you check She's Leaving Home , excellent use of counterpoint was made there. Indeed. It was at one point my favourite song from that album. There were times when other songs would be my favourites from the same one album. I went through this "wondering favourites" with all kinds of bands. Virtua...

Re: Re:

So who gets to decide who is 'deserving'? Yanks would rather have bajillions spent on ever more sophisticated ways to murder non Yanks than to help their own population, mainly because they hate each other almost as much as they hate 'foreign assholes'. If I read Henry's post correctly, then it's a...

Re: Best album ever made.

And my two favourite old Beatles tunes (they went through metamorphoses of musical taste, quality and workmanship, I divide their career into three distinct sections) were "Please, Mr. Postman" and more importantly their own composition, "Not A Second Time". I see why you like Magical Mystery Tour. ...

Re: Best album ever made.

Many people would say it's Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles (I like their use of counterpoint). For me, though, it's Magical Mystery Tour also by the Beatles (my favorite song off that album is All You Need Is Love ). PhilX 🇺🇸 The first example of their use of the counterpoint wh...

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

Should we give a fuck what Americans 'think'? Where does this collective narcissism come from? The first question I can't answer. Your second question is answered by the immense success America has enjoyed in its capitalist make up. There were never mass starvations, mass exodus of people due to an...

Re: Is God competent or incompetent?

Okay, DL, thanks. Please tell me what is my group of strong unconscious associations which pertain to the archetype of a father. I missed that part in your explanation. Please make no mistake: I expect of you to name a group of associations, not just one association that I have; how do these associa...

Re: Is God competent or incompetent?

Do you recognize that you have a Father Complex? Regards DL Why do you ask? I am not a German Sheppard. Did you think I was? Do you have an Oedipus complex? Or an anal fixation? Or an oral avocation? What a question to ask. "Do you recognize that you have a Father Complex?" You might as well ask fo...

Re: Best album ever made.

(...) Incorrect. The best rock albums are this. 1. Genesis. 2. Genesis. 3. Genesis. 4. Genesis. 5. Genesis. 6. Genesis. 7. Beatles. 8. David Bowie. 9. Best of Videogame Music (rock style only). 10. Best of Classical Music (done with synths and rock). These are not albums. How can we tolerate in our...

The struggle the USA faces in accepting kindness for all

“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy see...

Re: Leibniz's mill and the "Hard problem of consciousness"

Whom should I believe? So it isn't that he (Dennett) is ' entirely denying qualia ' in the sense of denying that we have individual subjective reactions to the world. It is more that he doesn't think that to give these the collective label 'qualia' achieves anything, except to confuse the issue furt...

Re: An oil future?

Also, to reduce fatalities would be easy: reduce speed limits all over on all roads to 10 miles per hour. Or better still, five miles per hour. We'd all starve to death, or most of us would, but there would be no road fatalities. I do not wish to restrict driving so much that we eliminate fatalitie...

Re: Socratic Ignorance vs Secular Intelligence

"A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering". ~ Buddha Well, that was easy!
