Re: Experiencing 'Living'

If you strip a man of all senses since birth; sight, touch, smell, hearing, taste, is he still living? How is 'one' "a man" at birth? He may grow to be twenty, fifty, old enough to meet the end. Has he lived? If 'one' is 'growing', then does that, in itself, imply or infer 'living'? All he has left...

Re: Philosophy AI

The unity of all being necessitates the most seemingly seperate terms as fundamentally connected. A "wisdom" generator, ie AI, would be the tying of these seemingly seperate terms together to form a statement. From the perspective of all being connected this necessitates the most absurd sayings as ...

Re: Quote of the day

Saying so and believing so does not make it so. But saying and believing 'so' actually does make 'it' 'so', to those who say and believe 'so'. You, among many "others", have ALREADY PROVEN this factually True. Sure you could reach the wrong conclusion with a thought experiment. People reach wrong c...

Re: Basic Human Rights

'you', adult human beings, can 'reason out' absolutely any and every 'thing', to "yourselves", but that does NOT mean that any of those 'things' are able to be 'reasoned out' to EVERY one.

As can be EVIDENCED and PROVEN throughout this forum.

Re: Sentient Animals

Sentient Animals After millenia of religion, at last we are to have a law recognising animals as sentient creatures. Not quite the same as sapient. It is here that the ethical questions begin. Do we treat animals ‘humanely’ but there to serve our needs. Merely tolerate them as part of the natural w...

Re: Counting is a misinterpretation of 0 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

0 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 is obviously transmitting information/a message. I believe that the act of counting is a result of a misinterpretation of the message. 0 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 is information/pure thought. In our misunderstanding we tried to connect it with actual physical objects. Counting has proje...

Re: The Biden Binder

Questions are endless and do not clarify. Answers clarify. I know, and that is WHY I did what I did, in order to obtain a clarifying answer, from 'that one', which was, and still is, NOT 'you', "walker". If you’re asking why people in general would not wear a mask, then perform a thought experiment...

Re: Basic Human Rights

If you mean, "Should a man be permitted to tell his daughter she's fat and stupid for her 20 years or so of growing up, until she commits suicide," then the answer has to be "No,"obviously. That sort of thing isn't controversial, I think: it's probably criminal. If she's fat because she's a lazy gl...

Well, the statement causing your personal confused interpretation is contingent on you (plural) using the mask for its intended rational purpose during a pandemic, a purpose which satisfies the needs of both public heath and personal freedom.

Re: make truth?

When 100% of the world believed the world was flat, was the world flat? to the believers it was "To the believers..."? In other words, "No, it was not flat...people just imagined it was, and later found out they were wrong." Well then they were "imaginers" and NOT "believers". If people "just imagi...

Of course NOT.

The word 'lies' in your question exposes and reveals thee Truth here.
