Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Do you have any specific examples of this? I do not see how almost every thing in Nature is about dominance. Your problem. No problem at all. It is just a fact, which you obviously can NOT or will NOT show otherwise. Are you saying here that through equilibrium it is Nature that really is in contro...

Re: Do you think you know that the Moon exists?

I don't think I could possibly know that the Moon exists at all since all I know to exist are subjective impressions, and none of them is as such what I call the Moon. Do you think you know that the Moon exists? EB It's almost funny how lost you are in the standard Cartesian confusion. If all you k...

Re: Do you think you know that the Moon exists?

??? How does it follow that if all I know are subjective impressions, then I must know that there is a subjective-objective division? How does it not follow? You wrote that all you know are subjective impressions. You're assuming a lot here. I would say myself that if you have the impression of loo...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Do you have any specific examples of this? I do not see how almost every thing in Nature is about dominance. Your problem. The apparent symbiotic way only happens because otherwise some species become too dominant, then overpopulate, consume all the available resources, and then die out. So an equi...

Re: (LOGIC) Formalisation of a modal argument

how are you measuring efficient interpretation? So which one of you two is more insane? Do we have a winner yet? I argue "space" is the foundation for all systems, considering all logic is reduced to the munchauseen trillema and this is grounded in spatial qualities. Logick...he is just some follow...

Re: (LOGIC) Formalisation of a modal argument

The language does not interpret itself as efficiently as a strict "spatial axioms" justifying themselves as is. That's an interesting claim. How are you measuring "efficient interpretation" ? how are you measuring efficient interpretation? So which one of you two is more insane? Do we have a winner...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

But I am looking for solution. Firstly, I would like to know the psychological reason for human egoism . Is it an indispensable part of our consciousness or our subconscious ? Why we adhere to an identity ? and denounce those who don't belong to it ? Secondly, I would like to know what's wrong with...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Could it be that egoism is what got us to become the dominant species on Earth? We took responsibility for our well-being in our own hands. We got smart and we met our needs. We are victims of our own success. The exponential growth of the human population has made it very difficult to meet human n...

Re: An Ethical Reason To Be Good

... To Be Good: to exist in reality ... To Be Evil: to be subtracted of all that is good; to not exist in reality ... Unfortunately, reality isn't "Good" at all. It has a few parts here and there that are Good for most humans, but overall it has nothing to do with Good. Good, Evil, and neither of t...

Humans harmful behaviors against their environment and against other humans and species is as archaic as the advent of modern humans. As humans settled and human societies emerged, conflicts and damages due to those harmful behaviors impaired the whole society. so humans devised god or gods and rel...

Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

If women are so inferior, why so terrified of them? This is a hard question. It is true that some people are terrified at what they don't understand while others respect their own inability to understand. A man can be terrified by a woman's external beauty since it has a certain psychological power...

Re: why this thread is goin' nowhere (and never will)

The reason God’s commandment does not apply to anything after it is done, only before, is because it has the power to prevent those very acts of evil for which a penal code was previously necessary, as part of our development. God's commandment? You think there is a divine force working behind the ...
