Re: Existence, teach me about it

Hello Alpha and thank you Yes it seems unlikely and my rationiality tries to tell me not to think about it and it is what it is. But how can one be sure. We just can not be sure. Maybe I am in a coma or I am death and this is the afterlife. It also seems egocentric thinking I am the only one that ex...

Re: Existence, teach me about it

What if Descartes said, "I experience , therefore I am" ? What kind of difference would that make? Experiencing things shows that the one that is experiencing exists, but how do I know you are experiencing it and you are not just but a memory in my mind(being my unconscious). If I can not 100% be s...

Existence, teach me about it

A) Cogito ergo sum If this is true and I do exist. How can I know you exist and if you do, how do you know I exist. How can I be sure that when someone walks around the corner he is still there or if he is just gone. B) How can we be sure this universe is not just a cell and earth is an atom just l...

Re: I am struggling and need you

You are right about specialization giving us comfort. Our jobs should not be done by machinery but by handcraft. In that way we can enjoy our jobs and like I said they will help us in our lifes instead of the other way around. Than we can only hope we have enough people that like being a farmer etc....

Re: I am struggling and need you

That is a really nice thing to be doing and it will give you a lot of new experiences and insights. If you want to do that, just do that. I do not know how old you are and if you are ready to do such a thing. You should not be waiting for it, because if you have goals set and things to do in this wo...

Re: I am struggling and need you

The empty space in Russia has been my first choice, but I also have not thought about a location that specific yet. Making me realise your suggestions would be a good thing indeed! I am warning you that I can be a little bit of an idealistic person sometimes. At first I want a good selection from th...

Re: I am struggling and need you

Your project sounds wonderful, like a Robinson Cruso advanture, but how can you sustain yourself ? Can you sell your art and literature ? Or do you grow your own food and don´t need heating in winter because the climate is warm enough all the time ? Hello! Thank you for your excitement ! I have onl...

Re: I am struggling and need you

... That is why I want to run away with a select group of people into the wild and do it the way so us people can have a true meaningful life. ... You think you'll have time for Art and Literature living in the wild? I am sorry for my poor explanation on what i meant by that. I would like to imagin...

I am struggling and need you

So this is my first post, I am new here and I am not a native speaker. Excuse me if I make any mistakes in it. I am an atheïst and do not believe in any higher power. Like the title says I am struggling. This society is doomed. Let me explain why I think that way. We are forgetting our priorities an...
