Re: Hate Unlimited

But how do we limit hate. Or more to the point, how could we limit or curtail hateful behavior? How does hate take seed in human minds? Can there be a strategy that would channel a basic human emotion into a quiet state? More police? More cannabis? What? Hate is the result of an attempt to curtail ...

Re: How time does change?

I can experience time when there is no change. No you cannot. Your body is in constant change, and so is the world all around you. -- Unless you do not have a heart, or can live without air. Of course I can. Don't be stupid. There is never a time with no change. If you are going to be silly. I'm no...

Re: Kant

If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this glass of wine, this universe, into parts — physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on — remember that nature does not know it! --Richard Feynman 2) Since you reject the idea that there are categories, you cannot possibly allow t...

Re: Kant

_______ There are participants in this thread who clearly do not have a clue as to what the Kantian term “noumenon” means with respect to its relationship with the term “phenomenon.” Furthermore, anyone who thinks that we do not use our subjectively-based senses to access our memories (and similarl...

Re: Kant

My point is, the "thing-in-itself" is a transcendental illusion generated in the real minds of the majority [theists and others] living in a real world. Empirical illusions are not real and we can know them when they are explained to us, e.g. bent-stick in water, curved parallel lines, snake-rope i...

Re: How time does change?

Could you please follow my discussion with henry quirk. Time, as I explained, is necessary for change. I also argue that time is subject to changes. We are not living in a timeless universe when everything is simultaneous. The only other option than timeless universe is the temporal universe, our u...

Re: Kant

You could see memory that way if you wish, but where does Kant bring that into the argument please? He doesn't. That's precisely the problem being pointed out. Sorry I have to stop you there for two reasons. 1) I did not ask you the question. 2) Since you reject the idea that there are categories, ...

Re: Kant

Whilst I might be a part of your sensible world, you do not have access to my memories. And neither do I have access to yours. Of course I have access to your memories. What do you think communication is all about? Do you think I know about your battle with cancer via telepathy? You have no idea if...

Re: Kant

Idiot. You are part of the world. Your memories are part of the world. If the universe is a quantum system "you" are part of the wave function. No you are the idiot. Whilst I might be a part of your sensible world, you do not have access to my memories. And neither do I have access to yours. As a p...

Re: Kant

Noumena and phenomena definitions are a means to understand epistemological problems, not your personal psychological problems. Let me get this straight. You are necessarily claiming that epistemology e.g "knowing" is NOT a psychological phenomenon? DO you have reading difficulties? SO, no, you do ...

Re: Kant

He failed to address whether "a posteriori" is actually "a priori" in itself as "a posteriori" is a classification of the senses...it broke down phenomenonon into a dualistic nature without producing a necessary grounds as to what this assumptive nature is...

Re: Kant

The phenomena are things as perceived. But this is distinct from the Noumena, which are the things are they truly are; *sigh* are your childhood memories phenomena or noumena? Is perception itself a noumenon or a phenomenon? Your innate desire to categorize stuff is clashing with your innate desire...

Re: How time does change?

What is wrong with my argument? There is no argument. You fall at the first hurdle. "Time is subjected to change". Could you please follow my discussion with henry quirk.
