Re: Is transgender something to get upset about?

There is no "female mind" or "Male mind". I think that is probably true. Although there are differences, they are only as distinctive as your selective bias wants them to be. It's not my selective bias that is in question. I have no idea why anyone would wish to change their physical gender, frankl...

Re: Is transgender something to get upset about?

Sorry to bring philosophy into this, but it raises an interesting question. Are there specific thought patterns that distinguish female and male minds? A quick Google brought this up: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-29405467 from which it appears there are a lot of factors, and not mu...

Re: The Emperor has no clothes

Are you trying to say that the Rooskies no longer live in a Godless nation, which a communist country would be by definition, and because of that Obama is beginning a military buildup, either offense or defensive? Did you not notice that the Soviet system collapsed? And that God has returned, as it...

Re: New normative theory (also a PhD thesis)

No, I am not a theist or a dualist of any kind. I would also not like oughts in an amoral universe, except for the rational kind I suppose, but I don't think we have an amoral universe. That there are morals is true. So in that sense the universe is moral. However, remove the humans and all morals ...

Re: Why is Rodin considered to be an artist?

An artwork has many functions, one being its potential to exorcise the input of contemporary society and turn it into an output, something processed by the artist and then got rid of. Freeing up the artist's inner self to source deeper insights. To paraphrase Boris Groys talking about Joseph Beuys,...

Re: "The moment you follow someone you cease to follow the Truth."

Is this supposed to be ironic? No because truth is not had by some one or some thing. Truth is totally naked. Truth doesn't wear the fake mask of identity aka secondary knowing. It's one with the knowing. Drop all belief about your individual self and what's left is real self, the one self. Ironica...
