Re: Rainbow children

Looks to be more to do with a change in your fostering system but there's still 100,000 awaiting adoption in the US.

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

No one's and everything's..which is the same one, which is not-a-thing. Given what you say how can you know this? There is nothing behind the recorded image to show up as a living thing, all recordings are dead things...you can burn an imaged photo of yourself..but you cannot burn the real self, be...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

No, I said the image seen is a reflection of the idea, it's a recording. ... Of what and whose idea is it then? There is no entity to be seen in a recording or in a photograph. ... There's loads of entities in a photo and a recording? And there is no entity to be seen inside ones head or body. I ag...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

I am puzzled as to why phenomenology is classed as philosophy and not psychology. Also may we say "from the phenomenological perspective" as if to mean "from the subjective perspective" ? I think because Psychology is about mental illness and others and Phenomenology is about one's healthy self. Al...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Sorry, I forget that many who come to Philosophy forums haven't had the opportunity or taken the time to read any. So Phenomenology is a relatively new term or field in philosophy and the philosophers who have really tried to run with it so far are Husserl and Merleau-Ponty(both really hard reads wi...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Curious. You support external empiricism or scientific knowledge but refuse to believe it is incomplete for the human experience the seeker of truth is drawn to. ... Not so, I'm just wondering why you think empiricists are not seekers of truth and what exactly you mean by a 'seeker of truth' and wh...

If there are two kinds of nothing then there is not nothing?

What is this 'SELF' again?

Why do you find having a mind desperate?

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

An idea can be seen as and through language written or spoken or through a material model. But these are recordings. Evidence appearing real. ... But didn't you agree with me that they can also be seen by the creator of the idea, that is that they are images, sounds and feelings in one's head? They...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Yep, you got it, that's exactly what I've been pointing to all along. I agree with Kant. That's a surprise as what you claim about 'the One' etc appears to say otherwise. So do you now say that you have no idea if there is a 'One' as no-one can know such a thing? If knowledge is one with the knowin...

Re: Infanticide

... Consequently we either create our own subjective values or allow the state to enforce its subjective values by law. Er!? The state is enforcing our subjective values or at least it is if you live in a democracy. From this perspective is there any reason to be against infanticide? If there is no...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Yes, that's what I've been saying...knowledge informs illusory reality. Sorry I don't understand, do you agree with what I said in that ideas can be seen or not? The effects can be seen...but an effect implies a causer..which cannot be seen. A mirror if it's you and the person with the idea if not....
