Re: There is no proof that separate identity exists.

Those who believe they exist as a separate ''me'' are living a lie. An assumed separate ''me'' existence is just a belief energetically generated by the phenomena known as the senses. What 'knows' the senses is only ever 'not-knowing awareness'. There is only ONE (thing) aware of the senses, and th...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

Eodnhoj7 Interesting post. Thanks. I said --- "Good and evil are subjective judgement calls. You put "And" objective." I have been told that a few times but no one seems to be able to come up with an objective moral tenet to discuss. One foundation we can look at is strictly one of standard logic. ...

Re: A Practical Role for Philosophy

The trouble with much of philosophy at universities is that it focuses on opinions rather than methodology. Science is the opposite of this, which is why it is so successful. Methodology is known. A secular dominated university must deny it in order to retain its secular dominance. Methodology is s...

But for Trixie's benefit, we should say that the 'Brain in a Vat' idea is nothing to do with relative morality.
Trixie rips everything apart, including himself, and calls it "wisdom". The "brain in a vat" is just a weaker example of this.

Re: The Endless Duel of Dualism

Yeah but both those variations are reduced fundamentally to "2" or dual dimensions, hence dualism. If there is a third element to the relation it would be triadic, or if a fourth quadratic...etc. It’s because it’s clearer for discussion to state the extremes, even though the reality is infinitely m...

Re: Basic questions of the moral life

Here are some questions upon which I have been reflecting lately, and upon which I invite you to think of some solutions: How can we maximize human fun and minimize human suffering? Observing one over the other creates an imbalance. Take for example if one had a miserable week, so they go to a part...

Re: Is Number a Causal Element?

So everything passes through a point of a field, 0d. And this 1d linear is relative motion to the point. A B C D and E are instantiations that together through the point constitute time elapsing. Perhaps I'm not understanding what you mean by dimensionality. How many total dimensions are there, and...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

If you take concepts out of reality, then they no longer exist. Why would you want to do that? Nothingness is a concept that says that there is nothing somewhere. Nothing being empty space. Nothingness is merely an observation of relation, as a gradation of unity in being through multiple unit-part...

Re: The Funny "Worshipping" of Nietzsche

When in fact the "worshippers" can't show for any credible ethics system that is all good or at least not evil beyond Kantianism! One should remember that Ethics is indeed the description of good to be carried out as morality. While Christianity is most excellent, we now attribute the best Ethics t...

Re: The Endless Duel of Dualism

I think you exaggerate concerning gender. In Plato we read of a city of pigs, who do not go beyond simple satisfaction of bodily needs. However, in essence, the marriage bond stretches beyond this, for Catholicism it is what is worthy of profound esteem and the proper place for sexual life. Why sho...

All types of competition: between individuals, companies, countries, etc. Appears to be the best way to make progress. Do you agree?

Re: Philosophy is pseudoscience...

Not really. Logic as a deductive system only applies to simple elements. What is perceived to exist in the world may not be simple elements. The so called rules of logic only applies to the labels for those things that are thought to exist, not the things themselves. And in any case logic only appl...
