Yep, they didn't say that because it isn't true.

Re: SELF

Dude, just by not saying anything on the subject I am making more sense that you do. And no, I don't think I have a better version than just shutting the fuck up.

Re: SELF

If you do not believe what I am saying, there is absolutely nothing I can do about that, and it doesn't change a thing.

I think that amounts to; "I am incapable of making sense on this or any other topic, and I don't care."

Re: SELF

Okay, I'll try again ... You seem to be trying to elaborate and extemporise on the all-too-simple theme that reality is unknowable, and that all my perception and in particular my perception of a universe of multitple individual diverse entities, including myself as one such, is an illusion. Is that...

Don, are you aware that you haven't actuality formulated an answer to any of my requests for confirmation?

Re: SELF

Okay, Don, I am having trouble understanding anything you say and I'm increasingly of the opinion that that is because you don't really know what you are talking about. You seem to be trying to elaborate and extemporise on the all-too-simple theme that reality is unknowable, and that all my percepti...

Re: the illegitimacy of politicians

I'm with gaffo here. The problem with our democratic institutions is not a deficit of ethics or acumen in our politicians. And Advocate has set up a false dichotomy between politicians and philosophers. There is no reason why one can't be both, and indeed a number of notable politicians have studied...

Re: SELF

Mick: what would the first-order cognition be? Don: ... essentially this ultimate, immediate, mysterious ineffable unknowable. Do I have that right? You are saying that first-order cognition is non-cognition? That would bump second-order up into first place on the order-of-cognition ladder, I think.

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

... occasionally dumpin' on Sculptor is worthwhile to me I asked you why and that isn't an answer. What kind of worth do you get from abusing Sculptor in such offensive terms that wouldn't come from either refuting his opinions or simply ignoring him, like—you know—an adult? I note you edited my po...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Ah, it's an episode in a long running series. Fair enough. I don't have a high opinion of Sculptor's thought either.

I don't see the point in winding him up, though. Where's the value in that?

You say "virtue signaler" as if it were a bad thing. Do you have a problem with virtue, Henry?
