Re: Solving metaphysics

I would say personal ethics and personal politics are contingent upon personal individual priorities or views, for one's self and/or a select few. While, ethics and politics, themselves, are contingent upon one collective priority and view, for Everyone. The former is not necessarily of any signifi...

Re: The Prime Metaphor

So, to you, how is metaphysics solved?

Re: Solving metaphysics

For practical reasons they must be divided. Epistemology and metaphysics are only contingent upon the entire human scale of understanding while ethics and politics are contingent upon individual priorities.

Re: Solving metaphysics

You're saying ethics is a necessary part of metaphysics? No, I'm saying that in my opinion what you have described is nearly a philosophy of which a part concerns itself with a metaphysic but to be a full philosophy it'll need an ethic. I divide philosophy into truth wisdom (epistemology and metaph...

Is this what you were suggesting solves metaphysics?
This is merely examples. "Every thing is a pattern with a purpose and the resolution of the purpose determines the resolution of the pattern." solves metaphysics. My attempt here was simply to show it's practical application.

Re: The Prime Metaphor

In no particular order: i was obviously talking of my prior experience. I'm glad to have had that change. I don't have any notifications from this forum and am not familiar with how it threads so i'm apparently missing things, but i'll address them as they come across my radar. Since metaphysics can...

Sadly, yes. I tend to be trapped here for some reason.

Re: I've solved metaphysics

I probably is, you know. I have Jill Bolte-Taylor's book "My Stroke of Insight" at home, which details her experience as a neuroscientist analysing a stroke that she had one morning (took her years to recover after clinically dying for a while). Her TED talk was sensational and the video went viral...

Am I supposed to look for this other post or would you like to help Me out by pointing Me to where the other post is?
It's in the metaphysics section. My purpose there is to express it. My purpose here is to figure out how to express it, roughly.

Re: Solving metaphysics

It sounds like it would, BUT I would have to see it to see if it does or not. I've posted some rudimentary stuff in another post, so, are these criteria necessary and sufficient or do you think they should be tweaked? Normally i've found that when someone is wrong it's because they're low-res. I do...

Re: Solving metaphysics

Indeed, but sufficient reason to what end? I have yet to find a "sufficient reason" to address one set of questions or axioms, or whatever, over another. I have yet to find more than a couple of people who can intelligently discuss what it would mean to solve metaphysics in more than a sound bite.

Some Metaphysical Questions (answered)

Taken from a random list found on google: (1) Is there anything that must be true of absolutely everything that exists? For our purposes, everything is patterns, internally or externally (a critical distinction). (2) Must anything that exists have intrinsic properties? No. We choose the properties o...

The Prime Metaphor

There is no really good place to start so i'll just jump in at random, dripping axioms as necessary. The state of reality is that of the state within which we can sense and verify. This is the human bubble. Anything beyond this bubble is speculative and can only be speculative. Verification can be o...

Portland, OR

I've been going to various Portland groups at Meetup.com for awhile. Any of y'all on here? Self-inquiry? Drunken philosophy? other?

I also had my own group for a bit, for philosophy plus entheogens, if any of y'all are into that.

No, I'd say they nearly have a philosophy but are missing the ethics.
You're saying ethics is a necessary part of metaphysics?
