Re: Paternalism and the Law

Of Course “Big Brother is Watching You.” And it is for your own good. Knowing how he cares is the beginning of your education “Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.” ― George Orwell, 1984 There is nothing left to understand. Big brother has already placed in your psych al...

Re: Tree of Knowledge

Time in Buddhist cosmology is measured in kalpas. Originally, a kalpa was considered to be 4,320,000 years. Buddhist scholars expanded it with a metaphor: rub a one-mile cube of rock once every hundred years with a piece of silk, until the rock is worn away -- and a kalpa still hasn’t passed! Durin...

Re: Tree of Knowledge

Hi Rick How do we know anything? The theory of knowledge, known to the in-crowd as epistemology, has been a central part of philosophy since the earliest times. It is the theme of this issue. . Plato defined Man as a being in search of meaning. Socrates said "I Know Nothing." Does Man find meaning a...

Re: Jonathan Sacks, I and We, and a Solution in Discussion?

Compare RWs explanation with Plato's description of why we are as we are People do not understand each other which is why society by definition is out of balance. It reflects the changing dominance of each of the three parts of the human condition. That is why war and peace concludes the cycle of so...

Re: No Safe Spaces

The day a scientist proves we can overcome the ever onset increase in entropy, then we should all worship him like the geek he is. Technology will provide efficiency wherein entropy is 'slowed' via simulating reality - ergo God will be A.I. and simulate our shit brains on racks or vats - such that ...

Re: No Safe Spaces

Bahman The feeling is emotion. Faith is the state of believing in something. Hope is about our positive antisippation of the future. What is the meaning? Actually faith IN something or someone is an emotion. However the quality of faith which enables a person to remain conscious of the forest and no...

Re: No Safe Spaces

Bahman Can you even define meaning if it is not feeling? There is no offense in what I wrote. Moreover, I didn't write that duty is an abstract feeling. Emotions are animal in nature and can be either positive or negative. Mother love for example is a positive emotion while revenge is a negative emo...

Re: No Safe Spaces

That (the bold part) is the duty rather than meaning. You cannot know your duty until you first accept what gives you meaning and inspires duty. Yes, you can. People do their duty all the time but due to feeling rather than meaning. That is close to being a reportable offense. Duty is no longer an ...

Re: No Safe Spaces

The meaning is that there is no such thing as meaning. The new Great God has provided your meaning. Your meaning and purpose is to serve the whims of the new Great God. You have the right to remain silent. Nothing else is tolerated. Disobey and you will be canceled. Society must eliminate the troub...

Re: No Safe Spaces

You guys don't get it. God is dead so there is no objective meaning for human life. Philosophy and the need for meaning is dead since advanced technology discovered through science provides all the meaning one needs.

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Tillingborn Nobody, and certainly not me, is arguing that anyone believes a thing they already believe isn't true for aesthetic reasons. Men do it all the time. It is the foundation for the cosmetic industry. They enjoy believing in what women pretend to be for the man's aesthetic belief in beauty a...

Re: No Safe Spaces

Finally young minds who demand for your own good that you have the right to remain silent are being supported. Now the creation of a "Reality czar" is being contemplated. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/02/technology/biden-reality-crisis-misinformation.html Several experts I spoke with recommended t...
