Re: Can someone explain this to me?

'There is no way out of this' Problem with relativism or subjectivism is that you don't get to have an opinion on the objective world by the mere fact that you start with a relative philosophy. The whole point of reasoning is that we can point to something, as a human, and say, 'That's true'. The wa...

Re: God Exists Because God is Unnecessary.

So you're saying consciousness is constant because it's always observing, but changing because what it observes is constantly changing?

Re: God Exists Because God is Unnecessary.

It seems to me consciousness is necessary for dualism, but conscious itself is not dual. The one splitting consciousness into two cannot see itself as one when doing so (post cognition). When the mind is at rest consciousness cannot observe it's own mind because it is one. It's paradoxical in the se...

Can you help me? What did Carl Jung mean here?

"We do not know whether what we on the empirical plane regard as physical may not, in the Unknown beyond our experience, be identical with what on this side of the border we distinguish from the physical as psychic. Though we know from experience that psychic processes are related to material ones, ...
