Re: Do Not Blame Muslims!

Please just do not randomly select a bunch of verses and paste them together though: Context and the wording is important. When it comes to the Quran, that is usually overlooked by Muslims -who just select the most far fetched explanation or just follow the traditional one- and non-Muslims. I arriv...

Re: The Fall of Man - Are we living in the Last Days?

Maybe God is desiring to pull the plug on this current dream. He being the creator and destroyer of his own kingdom. Creator? Yes. Destroyer? No. The human race appears to be leading in that effort. Ok IC, first of all, I do get what you are saying...but this is how I see it...as follows > Better t...

Re: Platonic Archetypes as Spiritual Entities

Yes, a transcendental illusion is still a form, i.e. a form of thought driven by psychological impulses. All your above end up as a transcendental illusion and they cannot be real. I am right on target with Kant who critiqued Plato's ideas as without the sense elements thus ending with a transcende...

Near Death Experiences and Personal Identities are Loops.

The question of identity is grounded in character. Character is the repitition of habits. Habits are actions. These actions are behaviors we assume by watching others. In assuming the behaviors of others, we repeat them, thus one behavior as projected is assumed by another. These identities occur th...

Re: Platonic Archetypes as Spiritual Entities

So emptiness negates itself infinitely as form and form negates itself as emptiness, then emptiness negates itself infinitely as form, blah, blah, blah.. Your points lead to la la and woo woo land. And you complain about everyone not providing arguments...... Anyhow: Not even la la or woo woo land....

Re: Platonic Archetypes as Spiritual Entities

Here is one counter argument to your OP Kant also critiqued Plato and accused Plato as being ungrounded on the ultimate fundamentals of the empirical and thrown into the whirlpool of the transcendental illusion. It was thus that Plato left the World of the Senses , as setting too narrow Limits to 2...

Positive Numbers Move to Point 0

1. A line progresses from point A to point B. 2. This line is composed of fractal lines. 3. These fractal lines are whole numbers in themselves. 4. The progression of fractals can be observed as 1/2, to 1/3, to 1/4, etc. Each of these numbers is, as an individual line or set of lines, whole numbers....

Re: Platonic Archetypes as Spiritual Entities

Here is one counter argument to your OP Over the years, anti-platonist philosophers have presented a number of arguments against platonism. One of these arguments stands out as the strongest, namely, the epistemological argumen t. This argument goes all the way back to Plato, but it has received re...

Re: Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

I'm not entirely sure what's significant about this in your mind. Alot is significant: 1. Points contain forms, and are not strictly "empty". If we understand point space, at the subjective and objective level we understand ourselves and environment around us. "Getting to the point of life" may act...

Platonic Archetypes as Spiritual Entities

If we look at any spiritual phenomena it is irrational by nature. The movements of the emotions are irrational, the "spirit of a group" is irrational, so on and so forth. Why are they irrational? It is because they exist in continuums. We dont measure happiness in lengths of time as it continues and...

Re: Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

I understood that! Eod this is a special day indeed. You are stacking an endless sequence of similar trapezoids on top of each other, each one of smaller size than the one below. If the size (measured any way you like) happens to go to zero, then "at infinity" you'd conceptually have a point; that ...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

I have an argument for time being an entity which allows to change happens. Therefore time and change are different. It becomes a language game then, how to appropriately define one phenomenon so that the definition of the phenomenon can interlock with other defintions. To reconcile these views, yo...

Four pointed Triangles, the Case for an Irrational Triangle

Very short and simple argument. 1. A trapezoid is presented. 2. A trapezoid, with a proportion equal in such a manner where the bottom portion is equal to the top of the original, is placed on top. 3. This process repeats indefinitely. 4. A triangle appears to form. The top of the top trapezoid appe...
