Re: Ontology Introduction

What do you mean with analog and discrete? I'll wait 'til you have read the article, which happens to contradict every point you made, to address anything you have to comment on then. I will explain what this question means. There are two ways of viewing reality. The analog view regards all existen...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

The physical is all there is to be conscious of. Then consciousness is physical too. No, consciousness is an ability of mind. I am conscious of being conscious. Self-awareness is the essence of consciousness. Neural activity cannot possibly give rises to a state, mind, that this state experiences i...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

The physical is an illusion. The physical is all there is to be conscious of. If the physical is an illusion, then everything is an illusion, including your belief that the physical is an illusion. No. Mind is the only thing which is not an illusion. I already provided an argument for that which yo...

Re: Ontology Introduction

That was a long reading and I didn't have time to read it carefully so I cannot comment on it now. I can, however, answer your questions. I am open to discuss the answers if you wish. What is life? Life is nothing but minds embedded in material. What is Consciousness? An ability of mind. What is the...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Reality is all there is, the way it is, whether or not anyone is conscious of or knows the nature of that reality. There are two aspects of reality that make it knowable. The first aspect that makes reality knowable is the physical nature of reality which is all that can be directly perceived, that...

Discuss.
One assumes something to reach to a proof.
And the proof is composed of these assumptions and we assume there is a connection?
Proof is not merely composed of assumptions. Sometime facts are involved in a proof too.

Re: Metaphysics is Not 'Beyond Physics'

I don't know anything which exists and does not appear to my physical senses and instruments. Something which exist and does not appear to our physical senses and instruments. What it could be? I don't if one can provide an argument in favor or against it's existence. I agree that no entity exists ...

Re: Metaphysics is Not 'Beyond Physics'

Close your eyes! Imagine things. Imagine a unicorn. Imagine something nobody has ever imagined before! Remember your fondest childhood memories. Remember that delicious meal you had last week. That's Metaphysics. That's "The Construct". What a strange idea. The dictionary is the place to discover w...

Re: Do humans have a soul?

What is being deluded? What mind causes which is in fact is what mind experience. What we experiencing doesn't have any essence, therefore it is an illusion. In another word what we experience is caused by mind and it cannot exist without mind. The main problem with this everything is an illusion n...

Re: Do humans have a soul?

What, exactly, is suffering that illusion? Do you mean what is causing that illusion? If yes then the answer is mind. No, I do not mean what is causing it. I'm asking what is being deluded, that is, what exactly is suffering from the illusion? What is being deluded? What mind causes which is in fac...

Re: Metaphysics is Not 'Beyond Physics'

If physics is a field of study which describes reality then there is no room left for metaphysics. Quite so. But physics does not study or describe Reality, It studies appearances. In the Matrix were physicists able to prove they were in the Matrix? Physics in the Matrix looks exactly like physics ...

Re: Do humans have a soul?

Dear members, sometimes humans talk about, that they would have NO soul. Thats not understandable for me, because i think everybody must have a soul! So i cant explain, why we should have no souls. Soul is the aura, thé comprehensive part of our body. The body of us is underlined with body, mind an...
