Re: new thought experiment

If someone is just being somewhere and the cops come, as they inevitably will if you just be anywhere long enough without showing some form of compliance, and the person says "Kill me or leave me alone because i'm not moving and i'm not complying.", what should the cop do? If someone had no right t...

In numbers there is strength. Who wants to fight alone against millions? Mostly the rugged individualists, I suppose.

Re: 2020: not safe for anyone

If you cut me, do I not bleed as you?

No one? No one at all?

You do realize, don’t you, that those who say it’s OK to hate the messenger should expect the same vitriol from the other side of an issue?

Re: Time travelling is impossible.

Time travel is already widespread. It just depends on how you think of time. Of course, it is impossible to actually exist as your current self in past times and likewise for future times. Obviously, but for the sake of emphasis, at the moment while I am writing these words the 24th of Sept is today...

Re: rubber, meet road

To clarify, “...as if it were spoken...by someone in the spectrum,” doesn’t mean I have Aspergers. In fact I do not have Aspergers and I am sorry to have been misleading. I tend to take everything literally, I do not read facial expressions well, I do not display emotions effectively, I am socially...

Re: Time exists only in the future.

Change is the universal substrate of material reality and time is measured change. The past is remembered experience. The future is anticipated experience. I appreciate what you’ve said about past and future, but I’m not sure that I agree with you regarding time and change. Perhaps what I will say ...

Re: Time exists only in the future.

Imagine yourself in a large open field. From the horizon you can see a plane coming. It is coming from your future but for the passengers, they are living now. The plane flies directly over your head so both you and the passengers share now. The plane flies into the distance and enters your past bu...

Re: Time exists only in the future.

How about "The concept of time makes sense only as a concept of time ahead of us." ? I'd have to say, that's close. You're still attempting to tie in this idea to some future, i.e. that which is only imaginative or what we presume from given evidence to suppose that which we call "future". Let's st...
