Humans don't choose to be born so don't consciously choose to live rather they are spontaneously driven to live by Natur...

Re: What Are You Living For?

Life is not a default condition, death is. It's Your Life There is no duty or obligation to do anything with your life, and most don't do much with their lives. If your own life is not worth doing everything in your power to be all you can be, there really is not much point in living. You can just ...

Re: Quantity and Quality

The force behind being is simply form, with this form being a continuum we call quality where any and all truth is irrational until it is divided into parts through the act of quantification where a phenomenon is made finite. The continuum, as quality, can be observed in the example of color. In ob...

It's why y'all get so many things wrong!

What Are You Living For?

Life is not a default condition, death is. You have no choice about being born but once you are an adult your continued existence depends on what you choose and do. If you do nothing to sustain your own life, unless someone else hooks you up to some machines, returning you to your pre-adult state, y...

Re: Debate about How to Solve the Major Problems of Society

I have realized that my thinking method may in fact be inferior to debate. So I have devised a control experiment. In this topic/thread I would like to see a debate about how to solve the root causes of the major problems of society. Then we can judge whether debate or my proposed thinking method w...
