Re: Thoughts on Slave Religions

Do slave religions emancipate all or do they simply create the ability to survive servitude by making one a servant of God? Thoughts? In our current phase of evolution, the majority of humans are entrapped with an existential crisis that generate terrible cognitive dissonances. The most effective c...

Re: What is Morality?

I stand corrected on the time scale. I however think you're confusing the survival instinct with something very different, but perhaps you can correct me here as well. Certainly, societal life is a means of survival, it is at least life-supporting or there would be little point to its existence. I ...

Re: Morality is Self-Driven like Self-Discipline, Self-Motivation.

Viritus, Morality and autonomy are mutually exclusive, morality is something you practice, often indoctrinated into from birth. No one living in society can be utterly autonomous. There is that is call the social contract, you keep the morality and the laws in order to reap the benefits of being a ...

Re: reality is

Well again, I think one should not think in terms of reality composed of things, but of conditions. Think of reality being compose entirely of relative conditions. for even what biological consciousness calls things are but conditions, organism itself is a condition in relation with conditions/part...

Re: We are living in simulating reality

To me, mind is an irreducible substance with the ability to experience qualia and cause qualia. You mean 'mind' is an irreducible substance beyond a living human? A human mind is supported by real empirical neurons in working order plus the whole human self. If a human is dead, there is no human mi...

Morality is an inherent system [as a moral potential] of sentiments and laws [internal] within ALL humans that supports the well-being of biological subjects, insuring their security and common biological existence - towards the preservation of the human species. Because the human brain is still ev...

Re: What is Morality?

It is not that I watch the news too much, it is that you research and read too little, too narrow and too shallow. it sounds like media rhetoric to me, that's all. WMD's, world this, change mankind that. none of what you say is original. sorry morals are the agreements between men, or people if you...

Re: Perception as a Controlled Hallucination

Due to whatever factors (considered schizo features) I've had delusions and hallucinations while awake and it's much like living in a sort of semi-dream state while the rest of the body is not sleeping. The difference between perception and hallucination is this. If something is inaccurate or doesn...

Re: Morality is Self-Driven like Self-Discipline, Self-Motivation.

Morality is a social construct, though its essence is found in our common biology the foundation of which is identifying oneself with the self in others, only then does compassion for others arise. The general idea of our common humanity took a while to develop, and as much as I have a distaste for...

1. All utterances of the brain are hallucinations. 2. The brain studies the brain. 3. "All utterances of the brain are hallucinations" is a hallucination. Your post is incoherent.

Re: No-thing is absolute

The FSK referencing the FSK results in the FSK referencing nothing other than the phenomenon it is therefore the FSK is absolute. If the FSK is referencing the phenomenon, then in a state of referencing the FSK cannot be absolute. In addition, the principle is the FSK is always constructed as susta...

Re: We are living in simulating reality

Of course, there is motion in absence of humans. He was right in saying there is no motion when there is no mind but he was wrong in assuming that there are only human minds. What we are talking about is beyond the domain of science. Mind is not the outcome of brain functions. Can you prove there a...

Re: P_Holmes: There is NO Absolute Truth ..

And conditions are subject to conditions thus conditions reference conditions and we are left with a thing in itself as it, the condition, references nothing other than the same phenomenon it is. Condition is absolute. What is left is always conditions and conditions can never be absolute. What you...

Re: Quantum Physics: There is no Independent Reality

The totality is independent as it has no comparison. What?? Whatever the "totality," it cannot be independent of its parts. Humans and every thing else are intricately part and parcel of totality1. Totality1 is intricately part and parcel of totality2 and so on. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...

Yes, I am familiar with positive psychology. So do you agree that we don't have the mental capacity to experience the meaning of life?
