Re: Intradimensionality, Extradimensionality, and Interdimensionality

"A one dimensional line cannot hold primacy over the zero dimensionality as it is strictly the relation of points. The one dimensional line and zero dimensional point cannot exist without eachother; therefore by definition they have a relativistic nature." A point can indeed exist without a line. R...

Re: Race versus culture

you haven't got a clue do you? Plenty. money usury or debit has been around since one person had the need for what the other had and didn't have the kind of conscious it take to take it, or didn't have the power to take it. so he was stuck with indebtedness. and biblically the Lord God of Israel in...

Re: Race versus culture

The following quote from Cicero applicable to a populist politician and those important persons who rob the poor to pay the rich: "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries...

Re: The first in the series of Super Sane philosphers, including the Joker.

Anti-natalism is for those who are afraid of children. If one raises a child the right way and the child has a good life with intelligence, artistic aptitude, musical appreciation, mathematical talent, and so on in their list of learned talents and they emanate a loving nature in that they have a go...

I would begin with the Birth of Tragedy and its definition of Dionysian and Apollonian.

Re: Spirituality is about finding out who you are.

I agree that 'Spirituality is about finding out who you are.' However, what I am is my own predilection or antagonism. Sure, there is self-evident meaning, though, and I believe this is what defines us best. We all wish for happiness. That's one way of defining who we are as humans.

Re: Intradimensionality, Extradimensionality, and Interdimensionality

I will not argue against that point, however I am not sure it is the only way. The 1 dimensional point maintains itself through an intradimensional self reflection, which results in the circle as a structural extension of the 1 point and simultaneously manifests as an extradimensional structure. The...

Re: Are you immortal?

Immortality is only to be discovered at the very opposite place to ageing and decay. It is possible to reverse biological ageing, true, albeit for a limited time only, and it is also possible to slow right down the rate of ageing. All this without even the intervention of any drugs. My experience h...

Re: Are you immortal?

A way of proving immortality is through cause and effect,and its arising, sustaining, and dying, and rebirth. Thus, cause and effect and temporality both lead to an infinite re-birth, either physically or non-physically, either materially or immaterially. It has nothing to do with cause and effect....

Re: What Is The Meaning Of Life?

There are sometimes competing notions neither of which are facts, Intelligent design and scientific existence are two competing notions. Did life, in all its complexities, come from an intelligent source or did it develop by chance and step by step? Both notions are implausible but each proponent s...

Re: Racial basis of spiritual traditions

Indo-European peoples is an awfully broad category to define Hinduism and Buddhism with. Indo-European includes Slavic, Romance, German, and such, as they are all Indo-European and nonetheless accept Christianity in its varied forms. For you to define Indo-European as predominantly Hindu and Buddhis...

Re: What is the Philosophy of Mathematics?

Different ways of stating tautologies in newer and thinner or broader manners. Sometimes a simpler explanation is necessary for people who missed the point. For instance, 2+3=5 is a tautology because 2 and 3 are defined as 5. Then I could say that 5+3=8. That's a further tautology based upon knowin...
