Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Suppose I invoke a new principle I have established called the Principle of the Fucking Obvious to declare that hotdogs are not sandwiches and Die Hard is the best XMas movie. I do so because neither judgment is worth expending effort on and this principle of just taking my initial instinct and dec...

Re: Pyramids of the Ancient Pre-Socratics as a Physicalization of Abstract Philosophical Theory

Wow...I just told you a multitude of times I used both "dousing rods" and "distance" and that "I will need to measure the actual frequencies next...because it is an ongoing process". Are you seriously telling me that when you wrote this... Measured the electromagnetic changes as well, empirically. ...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

The real thing you can learn from the trolley problem is how to spot a fraudulent moral philosopher. Anybody peddling a solution to it doesn't understand the subject matter properly. You say nothing of interest. All moral philosophers are frauds. As far as applied ethics is concerned - the trolley ...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Even assuming there is some 80% of something involved in this off the cuff equation, that's just a rule of thumb. You might as well have flipped a coin or drawn straws. It's not "some 80% of something". Drastically reduce emissions or become extinct. It's trolley problem 101 stuff. The real thing y...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

This all seems a very lazy way to plot the deaths of a billion people. If it's worth carnage on such a scale, is it not worth knowing what target to reach? 80% - Pareto principle. Even assuming there is some 80% of something involved in this off the cuff equation, that's just a rule of thumb. You m...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Why are we arbitrarily counting the amount of co2 that China emits as the bad portion and everyone else's minus theirs is ok? CO2 emission density + principle of least effort. Minimum effort - maximum effect. This all seems a very lazy way to plot the deaths of a billion people. If it's worth carna...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Yet it is true that if you wipe America off the map, you only have to wipe half of China off to gain roughly the same ecological advantage as you would from wiping out all of China. This comes with a substantial saving in wasted lives. The total emissions after the game are the same. Your choice of...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Nonetheless, citizens of the USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Australia, in aggregate emit more than double the amount of co2 that their counterparts in China do. In this game aggregates don't really matter. Total emissions do. Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada and South Korea are the worst offender on ...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

You don't understand statistics. You are using a relativistic tool (per-capita numbers) and forgetting about the absolutist aspect (total quantities) When talking about absolute quantities China is the biggest culprit: https://www.forbes.com/sites/rrapier/2018/07/01/china-emits-more-carbon-dioxide-...

Re: Pyramids of the Ancient Pre-Socratics as a Physicalization of Abstract Philosophical Theory

The level of desparation in your bullshit is saddening. "There was once a magetic charge...then there is not" is a massively disimilar claim to "it produces an inverse electromagnetic charge". Even you can tell the difference between a passive absense and an active inversion. You are making a fool ...

Actually mercury is a poor framework as well considering it produces an inverse electromagnetic charge when exposed to any em field...a weak one but one nonetheless... [/color] I don't believe you.

Not keen on it. What's to stop one person from having multiple voices via bot members? Nothing, but nothing stops them now anyway.

The rods are directed towards water...construction companies use them to find under ground water pipes. So what you are saying is that I should put the rod in the same substance it detects?

Re: How and why the Hierarchy of Value formula is sound

Intrinsic Values (I-values) are: empathy, compassion, kindness, love, peace, balance, being real, being inspired, enthusiastic, growing in morality. I-Values, being derived as you have written from quantitative measurement of the amount of attention units given by an observer to the observed, also ...
