Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How open or not one really is can be clearly seen in their words Sometimes but not always because ones thoughts are not always easy to express And so true openness can therefore only be ultimately known by ones own mind But then we are back to the question; How does a closed "mind" KNOW if it is tr...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How can a sense of detachment from mind AND an understanding that minds ultimately control themselves fit and work together logically Detachment is from dogmatism not from mind because you cannot be detached from your own mind if it still functions So detachment is from the external world not the i...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

how does the who or what actually decide on how open or closed one is or how open or closed ones own mind is One objectively [ not subjectively ] determines how open one is now compared to how open one used to be But is it 'one' or the "mind" that ultimately controls this? If one is "objectively" d...

Re: Hello, I'm Envelope

I like what your views are looking towards and what that way of life is and how it will be/could be achieve. However, to me, it does seem a long drawn out way you are describing to reach living that way. I found that way of life you allude to can be reached/ achieved much quicker by just being trul...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

if as proposed previously Minds ultimately control themselves then HOW could a closed mind become open Through the acquistion of new knowledge or experience or the re evaluation of existing knowledge or experience or a combination of these But a 'closed mind', by definition, does not acquire new kn...

Re: The Ugly Truth of Philosophy and Philosophers

All he does is make assumptions...then assumes these are no assumptions. They are just disconnected assumptions. You continually say that I make assumptions and now you say "All he does is make assumptions". Are you at all aware that there is NO need to keep reaffirming your own beliefs here. It is...

Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

But, If your answers are trying to prove my example is false, then you are trying to prove that not every thing is assumed, and, if your answers are not trying to prove my example is false, then my example stands as true, thus 'not assumed'. False, what I am observing is that your assumptions are d...

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

How could a closed mind become open or even be aware that it wants to become open if it already believes that it is open ? Would you admit that you are not open ? Are you even aware that you are not open ? The nature of mind means it is always capable of change although that does not mean change wi...

Re: Nobody Knows.

The infinite-eternal HERE-NOW also means that there is no 'space' nor 'time' either.
Everything is relative to the observer.

Re: An Analogy, From Physical To Mind

To you mind means cognitive capability so a degree of open or neutral cognitive capabilitiedness would be required for effective communication If this is correct then how is cognitive capability controlled and by who Minds ultimately control themselves but what form that control actually takes will...

Re: The Ugly Truth of Philosophy and Philosophers

The reason you made a wrong assumption is because you assumed my answer had some thing to do with no synonyms You can very easily find and see the truth of things when you do not assume He made no such assumption and was only asking you to explain why you answered yes to his question about philosop...

Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

1. If you do know what my example is that I provided, then you could easily prove this by just showing my example. 2. You asking me to copy and paste my example here now, could be seen to be evidence that you still do not know what it is. Some might even take you attempting me to get me to provide ...

Are you more concerned with discussing climate change or exploring the concept of law and questioning it's validity?
Great clarifying question, and very good point made through it.

Re: Platonism, Zen and the Munchauseen Trillema as Bridge for Eastern and Western Philosophy

False, the proof is assumed as is...as a state of connected axioms that define the properties of a phenomenon. If you say it is false and provide a known factual true reason for this, then it MUST BE true, and therefore not assumed. You are assuming a definition for fact. But I am NOT the one assum...
