Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

Clarification then: It depends on how many different ways you are using 'exists' ... Or upon what "idea" means? Hence dualism. You've invented a line between "world' and "ourselves". ... Well I certainly hold to the metaphysic that we are a body with senses, memory and language in an external world...

Re: Got any good jokes?

Then we agree. Whoever posted the clip title failed to understand that it was about Americans not Italians. Don't get me wrong, I think Americans have produced some of the finest comedies and comedians, Fraizer, Soap, Malcom in the Middle, TBBT, cime to mind. It's just a shame that interweebers on t...

Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

It depends on what is meant by "exist". My point I'd have thought? Pause the movie right here. This is the usual paradox that emerges between dualists and monists because the word "exists" is being equivocated. Going to switch unicorns for horses so we don't get stuck bickering about rainbows and g...

Re: Got any good jokes?

Funny :D Unlike most nations the Brit's are very good at seeing the funny side of themselves and but doesn't detract from the fact that the Italian stereotype was a stereotype about Americans not Italians. Still reminds me of a saying I heard, for the British a sense of humour is obligatory for the ...

Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

False, I never said that with that context. ... What context? You claim unicorns can exist and not exist which is a contradiction and always false. If by "context" you mean that real unicorns don't exist but conceptual ones do then they are not the same things and so of course one can exist and the...

Not really it's a contradiction and as such is always false.

I thought you claimed there is no "objectivity"?

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

Are you trying to say that you are an organism without sentience? (I feel this question might be taken the wrong way, I'm just asking it with the most pure and loving curiosity that I know) Nope, what I am saying is that we are a body with senses, memory and language in an external world and as suc...

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

... The statement made that there is an assumed 'Awareness' as an entity outside of us? makes absolutely no sense to me. . The fact you can use "me" should make you blush but maybe I have the wrong end of your schtick, so are you claiming that there is only this Awareness in reality and in fact rea...

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

You ARE the Awareness..aka Consciousness. How would it be "outside" of us??? I know I am a conscious awareness, I also know there is at least one other awareness conscious like me but DAM, and presumably you, appear to be claiming that there is only one Awareness in reality and in fact it and that ...

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

Except of course if what you you say is true then you couldn't know it is as what you say is just a thought. That is, Kant would then be right and any idea about what the Noumena is, Awareness, a Sim 'God', etc is just metaphysical wishful thinking. Unless of course I have got the wrong end of your ...
