Re: The Search for Human Meaning in an Alien Universe

You do realize that this 'confession' makes YOUR altruistic attempts to upgrade our 'primitive traits' responsible for all of OUR problems. This of course was unknown to us but it supplies a new definition to our concept of Original Sin, namely it passes the buck over to YOU! :evil: ...yet here you...

Re: The Search for Human Meaning in an Alien Universe

[ I think you may be getting a little too deep into character here. Try not to lose sight of the fact that you're only pretending to be an alien. And you Harbal? How can I be sure you are really a Human? AI {Artificial Intelligence} is already at a state on your planet where a response such as your...

Re: The Search for Human Meaning in an Alien Universe

Oh, don't take us so seriously! We only have wars, destruction and genocide to break the monotony. We consider it a grave sin to contravene the sacred customs of the past. Besides we often donate our good deeds to the gods announcing each such donation with Allahu Akbar. Each Allahu is another frie...

Re: The Search for Human Meaning in an Alien Universe

And what do you see as the top ethical question of existence? Because to me, it's always "why perpetuate it". So yeah, come on down and obliterate the species. You'll be doing it a favour, not yourself. The famous, or should I say infamous, Dalek Prime, a sci-fi myth in his own time. And talking ab...

The Search for Human Meaning in an Alien Universe

I am going to ask you to stretch your logic and imagination. I want you to imagine that I am an alien from a species of being that existed eons before Man - Imagine that we just discovered your species and are observing you and your history which is now easily accessible to us. We are perplexed - we...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

I have a problem. It is basically one of philosophical inquiry. You all take what we know, or think you know, of the universe, the Big Bang, etc. and reflect back upon an event, an occurrence that happened before Man, and man's consciousness, existed - How can you establish the validity of what you ...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

"We must never allow ourselves to forget that spacetime is not physically real".....Albert Einstein However it was nevertheless adopted as a canonical doctrine by physics even though it was known to be false. The point I was attempting to make is that the hidden spatial dimensions of string theory,...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

However mathematics cannot define the universe for us because mathematics is only a language tool. It can only be used to codify a particular narrative of the universe which must be specified in advance by the observer of it. Therefore physics is intrinsically tautologous, a shortcoming which was w...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

. You can define any individual thing or concept that has a name and you can define the word 'cause'. Then you can attribute a cause to each event or posit a process or series of events that formed each thing. This reasoning can be logically applied to any subsystem within the universe but if we de...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

OK, are we having fun yet? Hard Evidence for the Multiverse Found, but String Theory Limits the Space Brain Threat "In recent years there have been many claims made for “evidence” of a multiverse, supposedly found in the CMB data (see for example here). Such claims often came with the remark that th...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

Nevertheless the possibility of there being a multiverse is an idea that cannot or should not be ignored. I imagine it even possible if we ever get to a thoroughly convincing TOE it may even include or exclude the the necessity for such a structure. I disagree completely. The multiverse is a comple...

Re: Earth at the center of the Universe?

From someone who has gained much respect not only among scientists but the general public as well: "While the Copernican principle comes with no guarantees that it will forever guide us to cosmic truths, it's worked quite well so far: not only is Earth not in the center of the solar system, but the ...

Re: Where did the 'Big Bang' occur?

Assuming you accept the Big Bang as an occurrence, it must have occurred somewhere - And of course you say you can not say where because there was no place yet in existence before the occurrence - You would be wrong. As I explained earlier there is no possibility of a state of non existence as exist...

Can Civilization Function Without Exploitation?

The history of Man is based upon exploitation - Man exploits his own kind throughout his history. Kingdoms, democracies, socialist states - You name it and one or more groups are exploiting other individuals and groups under their control - No such thing as a true democracy or a true socialist state...

Re: Earth at the center of the Universe?
