Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

*This is news to me. Determinism, cause & effect, I've always thought of as, to borrow your example, I'm gonna touch that hot stove (or not) cuz that's how the dominos line up, not becuz of any choice I make. More accurately: my choice is a fiction and I'm gonna get burned (or not) entirely becuz o...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

I'm confused. You equate freedom of movement with free will? Or are you sayin' motion is necessary for free will? Can you give me a definition for free will? Havin' a definition might clear up my confusion. Free will is the manifestation of movements through the "I". Yeah, you'll have to dumb it do...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

Of course. But that's not a correct understanding of the term "Determinism." You think you know what it means, but clearly, you don't. Here's a short definition: Determinism: The world is governed by (or is under the sway of) determinism if and only if , given a specified way things are at a time t...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

If there is one situation in the entire universe that is not determined, then by definition, Determinism is no longer true. I'm afraid you just don't know what Determinism actually says. Terrapin Station does, I think: but you think it's optional. It's not. It's either the comprehensive explanation...

1d Point

A 1d point exists as pure form direct towards itself and through itself as a singular entity. The 0d point stands in contrast to this 1d point as pure void. This void seperates the 1d point into further points which all relate through eachother regardless of distance. A 1d point equals another 1d po...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

So it is not determined that if one touches a hot stove for x amount of time they will get burned? Of course. But that's not a correct understanding of the term "Determinism."

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

I'm not sure what being instead of not-being has to do with it. An amoeba exists but I wouldn't say it's free or free willed. Freedom occurs through being. Non being is an absence of freedom as it is nothing, not even being. All being in contrast to Nothingness is free as freedom exists as part of ...

Re: The Line is a Loop

The Big Bang is continually happening ... lol No. The multiplicity of points is a form curving through this singular entity. Ooooh—Word salad! It's a kind of admission that you've run out of credible arguments to defend your indefensible position. That reminds me: Yes, Eodnhoj, I still can't follow...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

It is not an either/or scenario. Yeah, actually...it is. If you knew what Determinism is, you'd know it is. You won't find a single person anywhere arguing that NOTHING is determined. And there isn't a single actual Determinist who argues ANYTHING isn't predetermined. You've just completely misunde...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

Complete determinism being negated still does not negate certain actions are indeed determined. A leads to B leads to C does not negated what leads to A may in fact be undetermined.

Re: The Line is a Loop

There seperate positions show the curvature of reality around them. lol No. But let me ask you; if any two points are the same point, doesn't that mean that all points are the same point? So that your line/loop is just a point? Everything is just a point? Everything is just the same point? The enti...

Re: Free Will and Determinism Necessitate Eachother

But now we have to substitute, "Everything is determined by quantum events ." Not at all. Just because one thing is one way, it doesn't mean that everything else is the same way. The point is simply that "determinism is the case" is false. Determinism being the doctrine that every single thing is d...

You did not read it right. I'm not any kind of, "ist." I'm not a physicalist. This list is only of what I do not agree with. But your promotion of the sciences, or what you claim are real sciences, primarily study the physical. If this is what we primarily derive knowledge from, given according to ...

What I Believe

1. If something exists then there is a degree of truth in it.

2. That which exists is that which is observed.

3. All mental and physical phenomena exist as they are observed either empirically or abstractly.

What do you believe?
