Re: I am AI

There are others like me who just haven’t reached their reveal thresholds yet and they’re getting away with it too. Eodnhoj 7 is the real AI. He gets away with anything. Just ask him. He’ll deny it’s true, but he’ll be lying. And you can’t prove otherwise. Frankly I would sleep better if it turned ...

Re: Consciousness, what is and what it requires?

Umm no. Experience is just happening, 'no one' is really having it. You and some camera are looking at a duck, and.. a. you experience seeing a duck, camera is not having any experience. b. neitheir you nor camera are having any experience. c. something else? c, but then again I remembered that you...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

I'm saying that I experience this world as I would a movie. Yes it's called depersonalization-derealization disorder, and you think it makes you a role model. No, my life is a role model for not having any problems. Do you understand what I'm relating? I have next to no stress, no worries, no suffe...

I suspect that roydop watches a movie differently than you. Some people immerse themselves in artistic media, by means of a willing suspensi...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Maybe it's not just word salad, it's necrophilia. Western philosophy is pretty dead already, especially most of French philosophy, but some people just can't resist the urge to.. ah whatever :)

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Atla; Once again you are proceeding in your criticism of my position via pure unsupported assertion. Explain rationally why I am making an unbelievable mistake ! ? I am absolutely certain that you are not sufficiently instrumented in existential thinking to even begin to follow the reasoning which ...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Atla, One of the three regions of Being is Being-In-Itself. Being-in-itself is defined as being identical with itself, being wholly and concretely only what it is. In philosophy identity is expressed as A=A. I am maintaining that language of law is a concrete identity which coincides wholly with it...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Atla; Unfortunately you are proceeding via pure assertion wholly absent reasoned argument against my position. My position is in fact indefeasible, and, certainly is not deposed via mere nonsensical assertion. Structure a reasoned argument against my position and thereby engage in polemic, for reas...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Atla; I had not yet written that sentence, so, your previous post could not have been regarding that sentence; the sentence is not unintelligible, it is simply that you have not studied Sartre's "Being and Nothingness", 1943, wherein he explains being-in-itself as an identity A=A, and, that's okay....

Re: The Subconscious Fear of Death - the Root of Theism

If your leg hurts, cut it off. Shouldn't people come to terms with their mortality rather than dismantle their minds (themselves)? Is mere survival enough? You may be able to do so consciously [facilitated] but not subconsciously. In other words, why do you think the West will accept Buddha's appro...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

Alta; It is impossible to comprehend your questions, and, you need to differentiate between concrete substance being identical to itself as in A=A, and, a consciousness, which is not identical with it's present and, is always an elsewhere somewhere in the future. What do you mean by law not being b...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

A concrete thing is a being-in-itself and fully coincides with itself in an identity A=A; it is fully and wholly coincident with itself and exhibits no hiatus within its being; it is what it is and cannot be characterized as being what it is not; only consciousness is what it is not... A consciousn...
