Re: The meaning of emergence

I and Veritas Aequitas have and issue about the definition of emergence. I provide my definition here. Yours also welcome. Emergence means that a state of matter under some circumstances behaves in a specific way or find a specific property, for example becomes a free agent, or become conscious. Th...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

I don't have a deep knowledge of MWI but as defined below, The many-worlds interpretation (MWI) is an interpretation of quantum mechanics that asserts that the universal wavefunction is objectively real, and that there is no wavefunction collapse. - wiki it is against my agreement with the wave fun...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

Russell stated what is from Science is the empirically-known which we can stand on solid grounding based on verification and justification within a scientific framework. While standing on the empirically-known with one foot, we can extend one foot out to feel philosophically what is within the no-m...

Re: No Thing in Itself

...The very loose term "thing" in the term ' thing -in-itself' is very deceptive and often mislead [seduce] most to think there is still some thing to the term "thing-in-itself." But in all over the Critique of Reason, Kant insisted what are things-in-themselves are only restricted to objects-of-th...

Re: Humans are the Co-Creator of Reality They are In

You make some good points, VA, however, I suggest that it is a misnomer to call humans the “co-creators” of the reality of the universe. As per my standard spiel on this topic, we should instead be viewed in the highly metaphorical sense of being like the “subsequent lasers” in a laser hologram tha...

Re: How could you be happy in Heaven when your loved one are in hell?

As it is stated. As I have suggested elsewhere, the mere possibility of the existence of Hell invokes the irrefutable (and utterly absurd) logic that every child on earth should be put to death in order to ensure that they do not have time to do anything evil, or to develop a character that is wort...

Re: What we ALL share in common that troubles us equally...

I don't follow. My point here is that we are born into reality UNEQUAL to same genetics, the same places, the same parents, etc. Given that we have these differences, how does the parent class have any right to expect EQUAL acceptance of one's preconditioned reality? Why or how is it fair to expect...

Re: What we ALL share in common that troubles us equally...

Why do I have to live under any world that I did not choose to be born in by some force beyond my power and yet be expected to conform to rules to any extent that I have not participated in making nor negotiating? What if the truth is that the “rules” you must conform to are what were literally req...

Re: Trinity

I have investigated all religions I could find, practiced most of them, and finally embraced Islam. And so far I can say with certainty that Islam is the best of all religions. Well, from the perspective of you being a male , I’m sure you do feel that way. However, tell that to the female Muslims w...

Re: Trinity

Believe your medieval legends if you like. I just hope you say within the law of the US. Belinda, seeing how Muslims are allowed to practice what is called “Taqiyya,” I have often wondered how much their words can be trusted?

Re: Trinity
