Re: How to end my computer game addiction?

Listen to some kind of motivational podcast, Jocko Podcast works for me, and Jordan Peterson also helps. You need to realise that if you want something you can actually do it, you just need to want it enough, so you need to first dig yourself out of whatever hole you have made for yourself, as no do...

Re: Is having children the most selfish act on earth?

There is no way this question was asked by someone who has kids, as if they had they would surely know just how selfless a parent has to be in order to raise kids. Go talk to a few parents and think about all the sacrifices they have to make to raise their kids.

Re: Do you think you know that the Moon exists?

If we can confirm that the astronauts exist, and that the astronauts did indeed travel to a thing called the moon on a rocket, and did indeed make it back, and did produce with them footage of the moon (objective recordings) then yes, we can state that the moon does exist. We know the astronauts exi...

Re: An argument in favor of free will

The unconscious mind is great at filtering out unnecessary information. In a case where you had a choice between two things which were exactly the same, your unconscious mind would see no choice as there would be no real reason to consider an alternative to its initial inclination. It would make a s...

Re: An argument in favor of free will

Think of a situation with two options. Suppose that you like both options equally. A deterministic system in such a situation halts. You can of course get out of this situation by choosing one option. Therefore you are free. Your implication is therefore that the mind is nondeterministic. I’m not s...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Your goal in life should be to find reasons to be alive, and if you live life well, you will find reasons to be alive. Not cosmic reasons, more personal and related to responsibility, burden, etc. Other reason can be related to what you are good at and what you enjoy, what you feel you were made to ...

Re: Does the Human Brain Create or Receive Consciousness?

If the brain is simply a receiver of consciousness then that means consciousness would exist both before and after death. But what is it like for consciousness to exist without body? No body means no memory, no senses, and therefore no thought, no emotion (also from the body). What is there left for...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

People need to detach from their egos here for a minute and attempt to find a common understanding, it’s just ridiculous reading this back and forth. But what would remain of philosophy if everyone agreed? Contrarianism, evasiveness and equivocation guarantees job security. I guess it depends on a ...

Re: Feeling you are all great and superior makes you so

Of course your own self confidence matters, however what also matters is competence in your chosen field. You can believe in yourself all you want, but if you haven’t got what it takes you will soon be shown to be the fraud that you are. Self belief will only get you so far, hard work and pure will ...

Re: Ego - The False Center

If the ego is destroyed, does the other exist as well? Or is there no other, and only a singular entity with no separation between the self and the other? If that is the case, how would a person in this state stop themselves being taken advantage of? An egoless person sees no boundary between themse...
