Re: Do humans cherish what we destroy?

Welcome to the human condition skip. Our chief characteristic is hypocrisy. We say one thing and do another. You were probably reading on the Hudson River School. These artists were appreciated during the19thC as depicting the connection between God and nature. Then by the turn of the century the D...

Re: Holy crap!

You are not female you are male. You are effeminate male. Nothing wrong with that just that they don't make very good soldiers in combat. If you say so. I don't think I've ever said I'm one or the other on here. You are the one who seems obsessed with my personal details. It is my habit to analyze ...

Re: Do humans cherish what we destroy?

I've just read that the most popular art of the mid- to late-nineteenth century was idyllic landscapes ... the very thing the industrial age was laying waste at the time; collected and admired by the very people who profited from its destruction. When there is a lot of pious talk about peace, you k...

Re: Do humans cherish what we destroy?

Ok good thread bump, yah! Aesthetics is an entire separate branch of Philosophy. Aesthetics asks, "what is art?" The answer is that anything that evokes an emotional response on canvas or in stone is art. A beautiful building like the Greek temples is art. The rules of Masonic construction are (1) w...

Re: At-home winemaking

Unfortunately the website restricts photo memory size too much.

So I can't show a photo of the finished pasteurized cherry wine.

But it tastes so good !!!

Re: On the Nature of Free Will

It's quite probable that every circumstance, event, decision and outcome is predetermined by the pre-existing web of causation chains. It's perfectly possible that there are nine more dimension than I'm able to perceive and that time is not linear. So? I experience the world with my given sensory e...

Re: On the Nature of Free Will

Is human free will an oxymoron? Is the concept of free will incoherent? My own answer to both of those questions is "No". However, I have a feeling that I'm in a minority when it comes to this topic. If you believe that free will is incoherent, can you explain why? I'd be happy for any replies -- r...

Re: Does over-rationality exist?

It's definitely possible to rationalise to the point where we interfere with normal instinctive functioning, psychosomatic illness being an example. Also, being too analytical can interfere with the capacity to throw oneself into the reverie of life. Hence the widespread use of booze and pot; they ...

Re: Does over-rationality exist?

Is it possible to be too rational? The illustrative example that comes to mind is iRobot, when the machine claims that her logic is undeniable, that humans need to have certain freedoms given up in order to preserve humanity. The one thing I'd point out is that this is law, and the machine could ha...

Re: Can a depressed person live a meaningful life?

You are a fluke of the universe. You have no right to be here. Deteriorata. Deteriorata. Go placidly amid the noise and waste, And remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof. Avoid quiet and passive persons, unless you are in need of sleep. Rotate your tires. Speak glowingly of th...

Re: What is truth?

... I think it would be near impossible for everyone to agree on something that were not true, let alone if it was only most or many. I, for one, would not agree on nor believe in something that were not true. Whether people agree on something or not has nothing to do with it being true or false. T...

Re: What is truth?

Pardon ? Truth is Tyranosaurus-Rex´s sister ? Because the biggest bully with the biggest stick says what truth should be ? There might be some truth in it, yes. That would be politically correct truth. Or Royal Society truth. Whatever the body politic decides by argumentum populum it wants truth to...
