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

Timely time is negative time, according to the rule of double positives. What do you mean with this statement? What are negative time and timely time? There is no time in the past, only memories. True. There is no time in the future, only hopes, guesses and expectations. True. Time is only now. It ...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

All knowing is belief, but not all belief is knowing. to be further begging of a modification of belief: All belief is ignorance, but not all ignorance is belief. This should be obvious to anyone who understands what knowing is and what believing is. Most would express the following, in their own w...

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

surreptitious57, Age, bahman & gaffo, You’ve contributed a number of interesting remarks to the discussion about time. To my way of thinking, time is imaginary. Time is a construct created by humans in order to comprehend change. I say this because there’s no reason that more than one change can’t ...

If the finger gun was on her right hand, can she beat the charges if she can prove she’s left-handed?

I have an argument for time being an entity which allows to change happens. Therefore time and change are different.
They’re different but not separate. Time itself changes, so change is a part of time and time is a part of change.

Government free means that each individual has to do the correct thing. For this, you need education though. All these I believe can be computerized. Perfect socialism.
Interesting.

Re: How are we able to communicate ideas through incomplete langauge?

We are able to do so because the langauge is based on, words and sentences, which each points toward an abstract or real object. We do so by means of feedback, circular imprecise feedback. We say something. Someone else says something that reveals that their understanding of what was intended is in...

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

[A negative number] exists when reversing the standard number line thus it is an observation of the gradation in a positive number line. Simple semantics: Reversing is negation rather than gradation. For example, I count from 7 to 3. The difference is negative [sic] 4. Simple algebra: The differenc...

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

I don't agree with all of it but I do understand it. Ditto here. It seems to me that there are two distinct models here. One is, say, the real number line. Numbers to the left of zero are negative and those to the right are positive. A negative number is NOT "still a little positive" at all. It's n...

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

With apologies to Eod for omissions or inaccuracies, I can offer a much abridged version of the argument presented in opposition to mine. The following is an abbreviation of my understanding of the argument against mine. Since double negatives make a positive, it is reasonable that double positives ...

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

You’ve covered a lot of ground most thoroughly. And I can see that negative good is a kind of good that my convention we call evil. For that reason I see that we need a zero point. Thank you for your stimulating discussion.

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

A "gooder good" necessitates one good is greater than another, thus one good is less than another as there is a seperation from these goods in degree. Yes, this much is clearly the case. One good as less than another good necessitates a deficiency of "good", Yes, this makes perfect sense as well. A...
