Re: Do fictional characters have eternal life?

At present I'm attracted to the fictional characters of Leda and Zeus according to the tale of the former's rape by the latter. If any fictional characters more than others approach eternal life those are the characters whose stories portray large concepts regarding the human condition. Sorry, I ha...

Terrapin Station says that there are no good reasons to believe that naive realism is wrong. What would amount a good reason? I can think of four empirical reasons to believe that naive realism is wrong: 1. Optical illusions 2. Hallucinations 3. Mental effects of sensory deprivation 4. Hormonal or o...

Re: What is the use of self?

Is my sense of self identified with preservation and enhancement of my life or with the preservation and enhancement of the life of my family, my nation, my 'race', my species, or my ideas? According to Prinz the self arises before they become abstract categories of thought. I think so. The baby hu...

"Islam's ideology"is not islamism's ideology. It matters quite a lot that people understand that Islam is not islamism. Religions can be hi-jacked by politicians who aim to acquire extra power from claims that they are supported by God. This is what islamism is, it's one sort of religious hi-jacking...

The two realities which we perceive are the mental and the physical. Please note that I'm not implying...
