Re: You never happened.

What Descartes didn't say was > (It is this ''presence-of-being" that affords you the self-awareness to realise, without even needing to think a thought, that... I Exist. ) The reason Descartes didn't say this is because the above is nonsense and babble. The I that thinks (''i am'' ) is a dream cha...

Re: You never happened.

You have no past, the past is death, the past never happened. You have no future, the future never happens, the future is death. Right NOW there is no you because there is no other than you for Infinity. Infinity = 0 = 1 https://res-1.cloudinary.com/crunchbase-production/image/upload/c_lpad,h_256,w...

Re: Double Slit Experiment

There are a number competing theories of time and time as a pulsating wave is not one of them. That's only your first sentence. Furthermore, I don't have the time nor patience to go through the rest of this hotchpotch. Seems like you are a parrot, and really bad at it. Hex, you retarded caterpillar...

Absolute nonsense and babble. The irony is, of course, that you accuse others of posting nonsense and babble. 8) so where am I wrong?!?!

Re: Double Slit Experiment

Without a reference in time and space, time is free to flow, therefore there can be multiple beginnings and time will act like a sound wave with pulsing motion. Time can at the same time go fast, normal and extremely slow, so slow that a photon can travel to the edge of the universe, but we need to...

Re: The Wrong God

No one really knows what came before the Big Bang. Hawking tells us that the events before the Big Bang have no observational consequence.Events before the Big Bang are not defined so we cannot measure them. Screw Hawking. That nit could not accept the real fundamentals behind reality. Get your min...

Re: The Wrong God

Oh. I see. Well, do you think the BB was a caused event, or a completely uncaused one? I'll go along with Lawrence Krauss on this one and say that quantum fluctuations caused the Big Bang. On this basis we can say the universe was caused. That's an important question to answer. Please give it some ...

i think there is a big difference between and explosion and a faster than light expansion of space.
What do you think that "difference" is? Can you pin it down?
An explosion expands into existing space, a Big Bang expansion was the creation of space.

Re: The Wrong God

You know what you call a really rapid expansion produced purely by chance? An "explosion." However, if you're willing to suggest that it was not governed purely by chance, and hence wasn't genuinely an explosion, we have a discussion about whatever it might have been that constrained the expansion ...

Re: The Wrong God

This is the core of the measurement problem. I've recognized the measurement problem. As I say, when it comes to origins, we're projecting backward from available data. That's never a 100% reliable process. And it's even more difficult when we get to asking "What came before the universe (and its p...

Re: Before sliding down the bannister supported by Occam's Razor, wear iron pants.

I think this is a more forward thinking, practical manifestation perhaps knocking Occam's Razor off the top shelf, so to speak. In its effect, it comprehends what we know, and from that permits more metaphysical consideration of the possibilities rather that just stating, hey that's an assumption, ...

Re: Why Humans Will Never Understand 4D Space

It looks like you don't understand the purpose of this thread. Of course our Universe is 3D but there is Speculation that it could have been 4D or other dimensional Space. So we are Speculating on what a 4D Universe would look like. If you don't want to play, then fine, go away. Yes that's very app...

Re: Kant's Synthetic a priori

I'm not a philosopher, but I keep bumping into philosophical questions. I'm interested in Kant's notion that we interpret the world in terms of space and time because these are synthetic a priori (not analytical a priori). To be more precise I'm interested in the arguments against this viewpoint ba...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

Hi everybody, Consider universe as infinite. This means it has no beginning, no ending, no borders, no center. In every point you will be in it, you will have infinite points in front of you, infinite points behind you, infinite points below you, inifinite points above you, you will have inifinite ...
