Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

Are you this narrow-minded to recognise that the PLATFORM/MEDIUM of interaction that you are on right now is LANGUAGE-BASED so naturally any evidence you receive will be IN language. There is a subtle and important distinction that you have missed in my exchange with creativesoul. You have emphasiz...

Re: Wittgenstein Solves (Posthumously) the Species Problem

It is not by chance that Darwin titled the most important book ever written in biology (and possibly in the whole of science), On the Origin of Species. Absolutely NOT. Darwinism has absolutely nothing to do with neither natural science nor philosophy! Wittgenstein recognized that the theory of Dar...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

Not all thinking is through language concepts. Give examples of some thinking without language! So, after you had said to me that "not all thinking is through language concepts," I have asked you to give evidence for that statement of yours by giving examples and you replied: I cannot offer an exam...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Man_Without_Words This is a story about a deaf man that never learned any language, including sign language, until he was 27. If he wasn't able to think prior to learning a language, then how did he feed, dress, and take care of himself? How can we learn a language a...

Re: Can you, and if so, how, do you translate "should" in propositional logic?

Can you, and if so, how, do you translate "should" in propositional logic? Propositional logic is pointless and deontic logic is even more pointless. All they do is to substitute symbols for words, and what is the point of that?? If propositional logic were to have a point it would generate some or...

Re: Buddhism: "Enlightenment" through Sexual Orgies!

The "nectar" reflects certain rituals in satanic sects if you do the research. Other than that, great articles. You have nailed this one down Johnny. You are right. Thanks for the information. I made the research you suggested, and it is too disgusting that I cannot provide the references to the in...

Re: So the begging question is: why call reality ''God'' anyway ?

What is the original source of all knowledge?. God, the Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and anything in between, the All-Knowing is the source of all knowledge. Yeah, I agree...because that's how I'm possible. . That is correct. I am of the impression that you are from the Easte...

Re: Can you, and if so, how, do you translate "should" in propositional logic?

Can you, and if so, how, do you translate "should" in propositional logic? In propositional logic you cannot do that. Propositional logic is the logic of sentential connectives, I.e. we are only concerned with connectives such as 'and', 'or', 'not', 'if...then' and 'if and only if'. Propositional l...

Re: Buddhism: "Enlightenment" through Sexual Orgies!

I simply used the movement of ocean waves as an example of movement without agenda . I could have said the wind, or fire, etc. Had you given the example of the wind and fire, then again there would have been some factual issues. The movement of the wind has important functions in nature. Wind And I...

Re: Buddhism: "Enlightenment" through Sexual Orgies!

I have always tended toward being "naturally" philosophical, and communicating that as effectively as I can. I used to be consistently very gentle with that. :) More recently in life, I do not pussyfoot around because intoxicated people will miss that. I understand that quite well. :-) ____________...

Re: Buddhism: "Enlightenment" through Sexual Orgies!

I would say that I am typically in a state of continual observing and casually assessing (like intuition/instincts) in the moment, as authentically as I'm able to do. I try to let go of preconceived notions -- and not be driven by anything particular other than the clarity in the moment. This remin...
