Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How do you know that in the future minds will be machine like more logical and less emotional To me the Mind is absolutely logical and non emotional already The Universe is absolutely logical and non emotional but the Universe and minds are entirely different phenomena though The Universe is ALL TH...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

By definition a closed mind is NOT open to any new things knowledge nor experiences A closed mind can become open whenever it wants to as they change over time as they are not something that is set in stone The state of a mind is therefore not absolute but organic and changes according to its perce...

Re: Objectivity is a concept, like heaven; not a real thing

One could say that from a human perspective objectivity does not exist only the absolute minimum of subjectivity which is not the same So true objectivity is therefore something that can only exist outside of human minds and is also immune from interpretation of any kind I however think that despite...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

Maybe you could clear up my misunderstanding here It makes sense from within my own mind but maybe less so from within yours but one nevertheless does ones best to be understood Although it is ultimately more important that it makes sense to me and only me but you can still try and understand as be...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

Your insistence that there are many minds and that mind is cognitive capability and minds / cognitive capabilities ultimately control themselves but you are detached from your own mind seems to point to the fact that you appear more interested in having your own fixed opinions on this matter and ar...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

You can say you are more interested in acknowledging the opinions of others but that does not necessarily mean that you are truly OPEN to them Very true because acknowledging something and being open to it are of course not necessarily the same And so while I acknowledge all opinions regardless of ...

How open or not one really is can be clearly seen in their words
Sometimes but not always because ones thoughts are not always easy to express
And so true openness can therefore only be ultimately known by ones own mind

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How can a sense of detachment from mind AND an understanding that minds ultimately control themselves fit and work together logically Detachment is from dogmatism not from mind because you cannot be detached from your own mind if it still functions So detachment is from the external world not the i...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

how does the who or what actually decide on how open or closed one is or how open or closed ones own mind is One objectively [ not subjectively ] determines how open one is now compared to how open one used to be Therefore if one is more open now one is relatively open and if one is less open now o...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

if as proposed previously Minds ultimately control themselves then HOW could a closed mind become open Through the acquistion of new knowledge or experience or the re evaluation of existing knowledge or experience or a combination of these Minds can become open through either emotion or logic or bo...

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

Dachshund you are very knowledgeable about the origins of post modernism about which I know very little I do not really know how long it will survive for or what will actually replace it if it does become obsolete But I think history shows that ideologies like it have a natural lifespan before event...

Re: Nobody Knows.

The infinite eternal HERE NOW is experienced at different points in space and time for all observers
So from their own perspective it is not the same even though it may be so from a truly absolute one
So anything that is objective can only be experienced by minds from a subjective frame of reference

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How could a closed mind become open or even be aware that it wants to become open if it already believes that it is open ? Would you admit that you are not open ? Are you even aware that you are not open ? The nature of mind means it is always capable of change although that does not mean change wi...

Re: The Ugly Truth of Philosophy and Philosophers

The irony here is that you are always telling others not to make assumptions but are doing that very thing in this thread I do not recall ever telling others to do any thing let alone always telling them Telling others is simply you imparting information on the best way to remain open by not making...
