Re: The duty of the brain is to provide inputs to the mind

So you are writing these words? maybe from Faith - via Faith in a material world as reality. not from Empiricism, which is what Descarte (me? or real person that is not me?) claimed prior to selling out and 10-20 yrs later affirming the unaffirmable. I am - right now, not in the past not in the fut...

Re: Continuum

Any continuous thing is divisible to the point. It is continuous because the biggest integer does not exist. Wow. You are going to make half of the world's philosophers' heads explode. All their lives they've been certain that a negative cannot be proved and along you come and assert, "the biggest ...

Re: Continuum

Without any end or beginning. The integers have no end and no beginning. They cannot possibly form a continuum. Do you understand this point? Even the rationals, which have no end and no beginning but do have a dense order, can not possibly form a continuum. You are talking about infinitude. I am s...

Re: Continuum

If a line is made of points then it is reasonable so say that line cannot be constructed from something which has size zero, point, unless the number of points are boundless. What does boundless mean? Without any end or beginning. The number of integers is "boundless" in the sense of being infinite...

Re: The duty of the brain is to provide inputs to the mind

The duty of the brain is to provide inputs to the mind. We experience everything. Experience, however, is codded differently for each mind. I'm a solipsist. So you are writing these words? why do you assume there are minds, The mind is needed for any change, changes exist, therefore there are minds...

Re: Continuum

Any continuous thing is divisible to the point. It is continuous because the biggest integer does not exist. What does "divisible to the point" mean? If you divide a nonzero length in half you get a nonzero length, always. Never a zero-length point. Your claim appears false on its face without furt...

Re: Did Yahweh do us a favor by denying us eternal life?

Did Yahweh do us a favor by denying us eternal life? It seems that the older I get, the less enjoyable and desirable the thought of living eternally becomes, even though I am quite pleased with how my life has evolved and how I will end this life. Be it with a body here on earth, or as a spirit in ...

Re: The duty of the brain is to provide inputs to the mind

I feel or sense my mind is spiritual. Yes, mind is not material. I hear my thoughts in my mind. It is said we are a spirit in a body. The body will die, but our spiritual side will not, therefore isnt it better to live in a spiritual body than a material one? And can the word hope be used here? Cur...

Why was human excluded?

After eating the apple God says now they look like us. He then punished them. Apparently, there was more than a person who looks like God otherwise God wouldn't say so. The question, the title, is then valid.

Re: How Jesus could be left along?

I have thought of this a fair ol' bit with my gnosis. Seems apparent to me that the system of 'God' has quite a TEST in store for man that quest_ion IT. TEST_AMEN_t. God will take you to the ultimate extreme B4 it relinquishes U from its test....from experience. So. Y did Christ (who yes, I believe...
