Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Meaning is for humans. Can you define meaning? Stop with your "can you define X" bullshit. Can you define "define" ? Can you CONCEPTUALIZE meaning? Yes I can. Information is meaning. Meaning is information. Why? Because information answers yes/no questions. And those are the simplest questions YOU ...

Re: Contradictions in Thermodynamics; Perpetual Motion through Angulature

I am arguing curvature/angularization of one spatial phenomena is the homogeneous state which direct entropy/negentropy...and you post some algorithm about probability...rofl, same record over and over again. Hey at least you are playing by the Prime Triad. What you are arguing for is the problem I...

Re: POLL 3 on the validity of a simple argument on Joe the Squid

Depending on your broadness or narrowness of your definition of "Philosophy". ... I was taught within the Anglo-American tradition of Analytic Philosophy(although I bucked the trend at the time and took Continental Philosophy as well) so I'm with Russell, Wittgenstein, Ayer, et al, so think a fair ...

Don’t you know that real happiness is only found in the meaningless?
I do. That is exactly why I pursue meaning, not happiness.

If ignorance is bliss then why are you on a philosophy forum?

Entropy in destroying one state effectively results in another state of negentropy.

The question is how entropy/negentropy are directed, and they are directed, thus requiring some relativistic homogeneous state to begin with.

Re: How and why the Hierarchy of Value formula is sound

What I did in this thread is justify the formula: I > E > S . I demonstrated how this is true by the very definitions of those value dimensions; and by the use of either Set Theory or the Theory of Types to establish the relationship between the value dimensions. Q.E.D. :roll: The devil is in the d...

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

Isaiah Berlin argued (correctly imo) that this is a misunderstanding of what philosophy is basically for. If you take a question where nobody yet knows what a correct answer would look like, that's a philosophical question. If you take such a question - you don't even have an idea what you are aski...

Re: POLL 3 on the validity of a simple argument on Joe the Squid

Alan Turing and Alonzo Church (and all of computer science) smirk at this. The only thing Philosophy can call its own is sophistry. I guess Imperial College shouldn't have taken me on for their MSc in Foundations of Advanced I.T. then. Church was a professor of Mathematics and Philosophy. Depending...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

“Dominance” is a human invention, nature knows nothing of it. Nature works in a symbiotic way, taking and giving, eating and being eaten. Becoming dominant means being out of tune with nature, not controlling it. Your conception of "nature" is also a human invention. That which you call "Nature" is...

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

Philosophy’s shortcomings have been well described in the previous posts. However, I’m wondering what could make philosophy dangerous. It breeds passivity and inaction. Is there harm in examining a question that cannot be answered with finality? Does it cause distress to adopt a particular point of...

Re: Facebook or Philosophy? Which is more Dangerous?

I like this, although I think you give up on philosophy too quickly. I work in an environment of builders/inventors/problem-solvers. People who approach things from first principles all the time. The problem-solving process has a semblance of structure, repetition and iteration to it. There is meth...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Could it be that egoism is what got us to become the dominant species on Earth? We took responsibility for our well-being in our own hands. We got smart and we met our needs. We are victims of our own success. The exponential growth of the human population has made it very difficult to meet human ne...

Re: Foundations of Synthesis As Absolute Truth and Relativistic Truth

Because you are selling a product noone is buying (here). I am simple arguing that the universe exists through certain core principles whether you like it or not. Suppose that it didn't. Then what?

Save the wiki posts...If that is all you can provide; then you are useless to us. Apologies. So a general introduction linking to specific research is useless to you.
