Re: Truth vs. Paradigm

Baba Bozo, if you see a chocolate eclair in front of you, what do you actually see? A patch of various shades of brown, that is the reality. Until we gain some ideas about what those various shades mean, it's just patches of colour. Same with the rest of the world, the reality is meaningless. Try s...

Re: Milli the Almighty

You do know that's a really bad argument don't you, I mean I hope you know why that argument is no more useful than a pencil with no lead. Because I am sure if you don't know why that argument was shit, you should probably give up philosophy right now. And if you don't know why, that kinda nails th...

Re: Milli the Almighty

I've made the point several times that any speculation about a higher divinity is as good as any other. Billions of people in every corner of the world have believed in Jehovah for thousands of years. Nobody believes in Milli. And so the two are equal. And atheists are masters of logic. And I am Ba...

Re: Mental Illness

The neuroscientists might get back to us once they have liberated themselves from divorce, suicide, alchoholism etc. Let them saw on each other's brains until they get it right. :-)

Re: Challenge me, theists!~

The Eternal God Thread is thus reincarnated! :-) I don't have a God to sell to you. But I will sell you some reason if you'd like. Are you willing to apply the same challenge to you own beliefs that you apply to theist beliefs? Are you intellectually honest and trying to use reason to move a bit clo...

Re: The Low Morale Among the People in Modern Society

The people in this society known as the "masses", do not care about deeper matters; whether something about Politics, about Philosophy, or about Spirituality. They all care too much more about sports, lust, food, sex, and cheap entertainment that comes from the monstrous machine known as Consumeris...

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

Wouldn't "Bozonian" slide off the tongue more smoothly? Yes! That's what His Imaginary Holiness meant, and he thanks you for the correction. He also feels quite important whenever referencing Himself in the third person, with capitals even. Wow! Whatever, how do I obtain my fair supply of Bozonian ...

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

Because there is no 'aphilosophy'. This is correct. aPhilosophy is itself a philosophy. The aPhilospher stands within the circle of philosopher just as all philosophers do. In that way he is no different than any other philosopher. The difference is one of focus. While the regular philosopher conce...

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

Consider that if the space you declare to be outside that contained within the circle is truly empty, then there is nothing for you to find within it. Yes, nothing. Indeed, when traveling beyond the circle of somethings, there is not only nothing to find, but no one to be finding. Though true, thos...

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

...whatever thought, or consciousness is, it too is part of the universe. As such, it should be observable as you suggest. The weird thing, as Ginkgo has pointed out; it isn't. Funny, that. Forget the mechanical apparatus of the brain. Forget science. Sit in a chair, close your eyes, and observe yo...

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

Well, yes, but then with chipmunks I know what I'm looking for. As far as I can see, all there is to observe of thought is the mechanics of the brain associated with thoughts, the reports that people give of their thoughts and the relationship between the two. You have stated that it's not the mech...

No, functionally all objects have boundaries that's why they are objects.
Please identify the boundary between you and your next breath.

Re: False Consciousness: Why Most are not really Conscious

Hume notwithstanding, I think Baba Bozo is anticipating a time when the mechanics of the brain are understood with equal clarity. Let us forget about the mechanics of the brain, it's not important in this context. A distracting side trail introduced by me, best discarded. For my money, uwot has the...
