Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Observation implies the observer and the sense organs involved in perception. They are always embodied in conscious agents, which are also contingent beings, not eternal. So, observation is not eternal and the rest of the nonsense you wrote can be dismissed. The observer (awareness) is not an agent...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Nothingness is an absence, an not a phenomena in and of itself, hence "untruth" is equivalent to a deficiency in truth. I perceive a tree outside my house. It involves my presence at the same time and place where the tree is. I may become absent and never perceive the tree again, but that will have...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

What are eternal values? According to the Bible the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil existed in the garden before Man’s appearance. That means the good and its associated eternal values concerning humanity pre-dated Man on earth. Eternal values must be centered around human conscious evolutio...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

But if that judgement passes, according to your logic, does that means your observation ceases to exist eventually? With regards to myself, my observations cease to exist with me. With regards to others, my observations, which they only get to know by way of my expressions, stay in their memories o...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

So by default, under those standards of logic, your observation will eventually be untrue? My observation will be judged, either as true or untrue. But if that judgement passes, according to your logic, does that means your observation ceases to exist eventually? With regards to myself, my observat...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Does prostitution exist for those who do not recognize eternal values? By eternal values I mean “everlasting morals, enduring principle” which have always existed. If values were eternal, how come they would need to be recognized? That would make them optional and therefore, contingent. If they are...

Re: Secular Spirituality

I guess you refer to Spanish people, native Spanish speakers. Not really. Spanish people is the people that live in Spain, while Spanish speakers are the people that live in many different places, with different culture, history, etc. I don't think that we can predict how close to 600 million peopl...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Conde Lucanor wrote: Make a big display of emotions or you're a soulless, hollow mannequin. Does 'spiritual' translate into a Latin language? I'd not call an emotionally labile exhibitionist a spiritual person. It is "espiritual" in Spanish. As far as I know, it has the same meaning in all Romanic ...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Sorry that I (unintentionally) do not give you the last word, but I cannot leave unattended such a big misunderstanding. In any case, you too have the choice of disregarding this post. No, I am making a very precise analogy that is entirely logical. Spirituality is much the same as creativity and ac...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Secular spirituality is an oxymoron which flat-lines the very idea of itself. Spiritual experiences do not need to be modified into secular or theistic as distinct from the other. The more I listen to people referring to "spirituality" from a non-theistic perspective, the more I am convinced that i...

Re: Music

Here's a question I haven't seen others get into. When you listen to a song, with or without singing, do you just listen to it for its sound (which I often do which I think makes me an audiophile) or do you keenly listen for the words, or it depends? PhilX 🇺🇸 In music produced commercially, most of...
