Re: What Is Value?

Bbh This flaw is: Relativity itself shows how the universe does not have a universal reference frame but must be understood locally, by measuring in terms of its parts. (reference frames) Of course it does. Consider the relationship of the ONE to Nous as described by Plotinus. Nous is the initial i...

Re: What Is Value?

Im new here and I have one main question. What is value? How can value be defined? Irrelevant question, go look it up in a dictionary! This is a philosophy forum, philosophy = love of wisdom, not complete retardness! Ah I see. Then why don't you go look in the dictionary what "being" means and just...

Re: Hi I am not new to philosophy but I am new here

Here is a video I recorded once, in 2014, calmly talking about the subject of valuing. I ended up making hundreds of other videos, but I wont post them all - I would rather invite others to also make philosophy-walk videos to strengthen the sense of identity in the online-philosophy community, https...

Hi I am not new to philosophy but I am new here

But it seems to me most people here are new to thought. No offence. One advice for the rookies Ive encountered so far: One thing you might learn in the process of philosophizing is to own up to your own weaknesses and not try to argue yourself into believing it was really "of course" the questions f...

Re: One for the loons.

No, I wouldn't call either of them values. You're lying to yourself then. If something which is necessary to you (like oxygen) wasn't of value to you (pursued by you), you'd be dead. I'll help a bit, in normal language, "value" has two main meanings: value noun 1. the regard that something is held ...

We're you free to ask that question? If not, who's asking?
I assuming the the variable of the question (free will), does that mean free will exists if I assume it?
Thats a beautiful solution.

Re: What Is Value?

There is a logical flaw in Einsteins view here and in his own understanding of the implications of Relativity. It is the same flaw he exposed with his objection to QM and Heisenberg. This flaw is: Relativity itself shows how the universe does not have a universal reference frame but must be understo...

Re: What Is Value?

Somehow we know value. We dont have to think about it, we rather think from it. It is our premise on which we stand when we perform the precarious act of reasoning. Im glad you kept going as now we are getting somewhere where discussions haven't gone for years. It used to be more of a thing around 2...

The Magical Tree of Life

Hello Ive made a series of lectures of the Tree of Life (Kabbalah), going a bit beyond the practice of wearing a red bracelet and repeating Hebrew mantras. As powerful as such mantras are, by the way - I wouldn't dare disrespecting them. But I am mainly interested in doing the work made available by...

Bbh For what it is worth, I appreciate that these observations haven’t provoked the negativity that they often do so we can discuss ideas.

Re: Hi ! Mohamed - Morocco

So, Mohamed, do you have a question? One that you inadvertently ask yourself? Actually there are questions that I ask myself that are not sufficiently addressed in mainstream philosophy, that is not to say that mainstream philosophy is useless. Most questions I ask are metaphysical questions like :...
