Re: Philosophy of Human Rights / Human Rights as Mythology

Most laws come originally from tradition, and this way, have a bound with religion. The problem is to impose an international law, you should have an international government, which don't exist. -I don't faith in ontological idea - which consist in saying that something "is true because it is true"....

Re: Cooperative Principle

Amad27, I tried anyway your problem to consider it completely. There is much time I have not done physics, so be tolerant. I was about to consider a complete (closed) system - the temperature being constant, I could invoke the law of perfect gases. But this was about to consider more parameters than...

Re: Why Suffering is a Good Thing

Here's why suffering is actually a good thing that could happen to a person. The reason(s) why suffering is actually good for a person is because it is part of a process of thinking and the start of a long spiritual path to Enlightenment and Liberation from the Material world. I believe that judgin...

Re: local and nonlocal consciousness effects on light dualit

Hi Jackles, I saw you posted another similar topic, but answer in this one, because the title is more explicit. I don't really understand the relation between celerity of light and the conscious. But I developed a reasoning about c, some months ago in another forum. I understood why physicists give ...

Re: The Truth about "Nuclear Weapons"

These "ill people", as I say, only move the problem to another place: An intensive radioactivity imply a more or less short half-period. This mean that ...

Re: My Philosophy

The imperative to preserve is a problem I'm wprking on in my philosophy and science of needs, so I've touched on similar questions before. Ah, okay.

Re: My Philosophy

Ok, a title, generally, is not philosophic in itself.

I wanted not to make a generality about the counterparts (examples of philosophic titles).

The point was the list.
