Re: is it dual nature of the observer that collapes the wave

yeah could it be the mind /consciousness duality of the observer that collapses the wave function.as in consciousness presents the event and does not investigate its self or its presented event.the mind then seperate from the pure consciousness investigates its creators creation causing the collaps...

Re: is it dual nature of the observer that collapes the wave

Yeah Jackels. What's up with the choppy lingo . Its,like youre texting on a 12-key pad flip phone. Lol But if you are, hey, no judgement. We got what we got. But anyways. This is an interesting idea. I just went on Wiki for a primer on Wave collapse. :D I think a got a rough idea. I like the probabl...

Re: is it dual nature of the observer that collapes the wave

Sounds quite non philosophical. So, what does it mean that consciousness behaves in this way?

Re: is it dual nature of the observer that collapes the wave

I like the first idea: that consciousness does not see its operation in having an object. And I think there is a duality indicated by this situation, but I'm not so sure about the rest of it.

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

I read "Kan't" when I was a mere teen it been too damn long and I'm an ol' feeble man by now, you present something relevant from Kan't now that you seem so in luv with him. Not me, I'm in love with Anglo-American Philosophy and whilst I studied the Continentals, as I wasn't interested in an academ...

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

I think that's a point I have tired to make in general, philosophers don't really know enough about science, unless they have a PhD in the philosophy of science, and yet they still think they know science. Scientists well the same reversed, unless they really know philosophy. Keep it logical people...

Re: Medieval times - A enlightened era…

I would offer my tentative analysis : the 'darkness' was 'history less' in that it was a period in Europe when a particular kind of ideology took hold and was needed of working out. The 'history' was seen to have already played Inthe culmination that was Rome. Such 'reality' (Rome) was the effect of...

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

That's not goof science, and is probably something you read outside of a proper science medium. Scientists are as apt to leap to tall ideas as anyone, as long as it's kept out of the Journal of physics, I don't think it's all that damaging. These days though there is the advertising aspect, a scien...

Re: PN forum stats

0]The difference between you and Lance is that he actually understands philosophy, while you're just a working stiff interested in it. Which is OK, and specifically you'd be OK, if you didn't try and demean as a way to qualify your lack of understanding of ones attempt to do good philosophy. Lance, ...

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

I think it depends on whether the universe is expanding or collapsing or static.

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

That's why many go to philosophers like Kant and others - so they can see deeper meaning in life. Such as? My best bet is delusional crap, just like many people turn to religion for imaginary answers, but please prove me wrong! What is delusional? Do you ever ask yourself how you come about this cr...

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

Here's an excerpt from a Philosophy Now article about Kant, to help Hexhammer out: Appearances in Kantian language are called ‘Phenomena' and ‘things-in-themselves,' are called ‘Noumena'. To support his theory, Kant gave several arguments. The fourth is based on the admitted validity of Geometry wh...

Re: Kant and the Thing in Itself

To elaborate on my 2nd point. Kant can in no way compare to modern science, everything is outdated and at most times too hard to understand the true meaning is his babble. Too many naïve cozy chatters are deluded by his beautiful rethorics, and actually thinks he says anything relevant, when it has...

Re: PN forum stats

HH. Your statement reveals your very capitalistic ideological One reality that everyone is supposed to fall in line with. It completely denies educated thought of at least the past 40 years. It shows a relapse into Modernistic belief that cannot cope with the evidence of humanity. Again, if you even...
