Re: Does capitalism by overshadowing democracy , undermines itself ?

sure, meddling in other's elections - in the aim of your own national interests is to be expected and affirmed (if you affirm your gov) - so if most Russians affirm Putin and turned their backs on the concepts of the West like the Rule of Law, in order to restore the lost empire of the USSR (i.e. i...

Re: Does capitalism by overshadowing democracy , undermines itself ?

The important inferred point , besides the main concept , in this thread is the dangerous aftermath of US economic power decline in global political equilibrium between east and west and since US is also the main supporter of liberal democracies against undemocratic eastern powers , US power declin...

Re: Does capitalism by overshadowing democracy , undermines itself ?

I agree with your overall, but it is a global challenge, not just a US one. I think the US is failing this challenge, and other nations will have to step up - the EU or maybe India - if the latter can move BACK to pre-modi mentality. we shall see. Your Idea about EU and India would become true , ho...

Re: Do we leave in a 3D or 4D world ?

While reading this thread, I would like to remind that the mention of the (disputed) TR seems irrelevant. I believe we live in a 3D surface of a 4D condensing / crystallizing (growing) past. In the newly creating Planck time layer, which is being created by a quantum process ... TR or theory of rel...

Does capitalism by overshadowing democracy , undermines itself ? Fascist Germany of 1940 was a prosperous Capitalist nation with nearly no democracy, Cambodia in the 70's would be the opposite (in one's nightmare of the ideal democracy - communist nightmare - no capitalism there. I would today call...

Does capitalism by overshadowing democracy , undermines itself ?

There have been probably many factors that caused the hub of capitalism (US) to grow and turn into the economic superpower. But I guess the main factor for US economic development and the maintenance of its dominance in global economy as well as an global power , has been the balance of two contradi...

Re: Do we leave in a 3D or 4D world ?

And it is important to note the 'current knowledge" you mentioned, is merely the subjective knowledge for its pragmatic theory of truth, which is not tantamount to the objective knowledge. Any hypothesis extrapolated from a foundation that was based on an incorrect paradigm of reality would be fall...

Re: Do we leave in a 3D or 4D world ?

What I put forward is just an imagination , and question is not about physiological condition of human body at the speed of light . It is just an imagination that latest theoretical knowledge just tells that the passage of time stops at the speed of light , so it may suggest that time starts to beh...

Re: Do we leave in a 3D or 4D world ?

So can we say we would enter the 4 dimensional world at or above the speed of light that , according to our current scientific knowledge , is unachievable ? If a human body were to be propelled at the speed of light, I very much doubt that it would be in any condition to appreciate the passing of t...

Re: What causes muslims to be violent

Perhaps the reason is that they were persecuted by the Christians from the beggining; As far as I know , the major battle of moslems with other nation to gain territories and to gain enough power and incentive for expansion , was the invasion of moslems in the Arabian peninsula into Persian empire ...

Do we leave in a 3D or 4D world ?

According to modern physics theory , time is the fourth dimension . But time is not like the other three dimensions , because you can move back and forth freely in each of three dimensions , but we move in time in just one direction , although it passes differently in different coordinates with diff...

Re: Which one is first : observations or hypothesis ?

Observation always comes before hypothesis because hypothesis is based on observation I quite agree , I think that the vice versa opinion is accepted in some ideological contexts , and I guess it's one of differences between scientific viewpoint and ideological viewpoint . Also some reason that obs...

Which one is first : observations or hypothesis ?

As I remember one of the principles of philosophy of science is the priority of hypothesis in the sequence of hypothesis --> observation --> hypothesis --> observation . . . . . . . But I cannot be convinced by that principle , how can a new and raw hypothesis be originated without mere observation ...

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

It's probably been said earlier but... You seem to be ignoring out most of philosophy and religion. The Perennial philosophy explains how to get rid of the ego and promotes the benefits of doing so. Human beings are perfectly capable of geting rid of their egos. It is the entire secret of finding t...

Re: Do humans have a soul?

Let us suppose it is true that humans desire to be eternal. The fact that they desire it tells us nothing about its truth or falsehood...only perhaps, something about one kind of motive for wanting it to be true. That's true , but the burden of proof is up to anyone who claim a phenomenon is true ....
