Re: The problem of self under materialism

the idea that thought and reason arose from nothingness always struck me as none possible. Thus a spiritual reality. Physics itself is mindless and totally indifferent and violently hostile to life. :twisted:

Re: The absolute truth...Is it a feeling?

the word truth is a different meaning every time depending on the subject we are talking about. Sometimes it is actuality. Other times its a logic table. Other times it is the virtues of the heart and justice for all, a justice that brings joy and peace to the upright and innocent.

Re: How do we know our reasoning is valid?

if you live solely in your mind that closes out the heart and will that each of us possess. You cant lock yourself into purely objective cold reasoning. What is valid must include the world of the heart and will. We all have subjective reality and to be at the helm of your ship you must give your he...

Re: When people bash us on forums without any justification, then what and how should our response be?

they just want people to bow to their intellectual superiority. Its the same gerbels always quoting and citing because they have no thoughts of their own. Validity is in having a long memory of a single narrow viewpoint. They seek submission to it and lose their minds when people question things for...

Re: Is Free will an illusion?

it depends on the type of person you are and how aware of things you become through learnings. And the quality of what you learn. And your ability to conceive and be motivated by what truly matters. Free will is a realization and not automatic.

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

with artificial intelligence you can simulate everything we are only make it more powerful than us. Even being aware can be simulated. The mind is more the soul than the brain it exists in extra dimensions.

Re: Do you regard the human brain as the most complex object in the universe?

balance feeling perception focus emotion
the brain does so much and is intimately apart of who you are. But it doesnt think. It senses and tunes are physical experiences. Thats my assertion. It might be simpler than we think. Black holes would have to be the most complex affecting space and time.
