Re: Perfection is Both Relative and Absolute

How can we disagree if all is connected? I wouldn't say it is all connected, as this creates the impression of separate things being connected in some magical way - I would rather say that there is no separation. This is an acknowledgment of the fact that separate things actually do not existing in...

Re: Perfection is Both Relative and Absolute

A mirage is the manifestation of an image away from its source. In direct experience (reality) a mirage, just like any other visual impression, is simply the momentary field of color - not "an image away from its source". False, the mirage of water and water are disconnected in the respect one is l...

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

V A It is because of the unresolved cognitive dissonance that drive [compel] one to speculate on some kind of "greater reality" which will comfort and soothe one's disturbed mind. You can feel that yourself where you feel comfort with your existing views and discomfort and unease on anything otherw...

Interpretations as Emergent from Reality

Interpretations are emergent from reality, reality is absolute given it exists as is, thus interpretations have an absolute existence. Given man is interpreter, man is the means from which interpretations emerge from reality thus necessitate man as the absolute means from which interpretations occur.

Re: Perfection is Both Relative and Absolute

Reality is thus seperate from illusion, yet illusion emerges from reality and as such is a degree of reality. One degree of reality is thus seperate from another. There are no degrees of reality (and realty is not separate from anything else, simply because there is only reality). What's the "degre...

Re: There is no personal God or impersonal God.

Nothingness does not exists thus any concept of void negates itself under a contradiction into only being occuring. Yes, I agree in the conceptual context, but the nothingness must exist as a known concept which is then known to be beingness which it actually isn't. Nothingness is a relationship of...

No Nothingness

Nothingness does not exist thus any concept of void negates itself under a contradiction into only being occuring. The voiding of void, or no nothingness, is being itself. Being thus is grounded in a contradiction in terms through a double negation which is cyclical.

Re: There is no personal God or impersonal God.

The voiding of void into being necessitates a cyclical self reflective pattern given Nothingness does not exist thus negates itself into being. This pattern, which is cyclical, is being itself emerging from nothingness. Nothingness does not exist, is just a conceptual knowledge known by no thing, -...

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

Rhetoric again, why do you bring in the term 'submitting'. Reality is deterministic [not in the absolute sense], thus man is part and parcel of reality. The point is whatever is to be realized and asserted about reality [the only way] inevitably involved man. This is what is meant by "man is the me...

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

V A It is not to avoid experiencing the question of mortality which is inevitable and unavoidable.

Re: Perfection is Both Relative and Absolute

Conceptual interpretation is thus seperate from direct experience, yet both are emergent from being thus necessitating a seperation. You contradict yourself. Not really... Imagine... you look at the room you're in... the direct experience of seeing itself is simply this ever changing field of color...

Re: There is no personal God or impersonal God.

You claim humans make up fables yet use a modern fable of creation yourself. If all knowledge is fundamentally nothing then by default your stance is nothing as well. yes, that’s exactly what I am/not saying.. Yet you use the stance to justify your stance to justify nothing. You are using nothing t...

Eod Does this mean that IYO the intellect is the constant form of Man? Is the intellect having nothing better to do than arguing about Trump, the seat of the the soul of Man?

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

True, but the question remains: can a person through noesis experience the truths or forms which create opinions or interpretations? If there is no source, then there are no forms and noesis is just imagination. The chaotic creature called Man must be the measure of all things. Not very logical Man...
