You see men like you come and try to change...whatever it is you are trying to change with whatever cause, and there are alot. Then men like me result, laughing and pointing saying "look it is a joke, everytime A manifests he creates -A...he is just running around in circles". Hate to break it to y...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

I knew a martial artist one time. He practiced for years. Wasn't any good. I knew another martial artist. He practiced for years. Was good. Neither ended up applying those skills to real life much barring a few bar fights (which really is not real life because they were not necessary). The same app...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Testing depends on whether you believe the answer sheet or not. And where would the answers come from if you are the one putting together the question-paper? So, I can always believe that I know what I know. If what I know is true, then I know what I know. If what I know is false, then I know that ...

Re: Intuitionist Double Negation --> Aristotelian P=P --> Double Positives

I'm not sure of your point here, as for sure if pears don't exist then its false that pears exist and the proposition "Pears exist" will be false? This is a proposition about pears: P1: Pears exist P1 is false. This is a proposition about another proposition (P1): P2: P1 is false P2 is true. https:...

Re: All Propositions Have Binary Meanings

So two is not "multiple?" The OP says, in the argument, "binary at minimum". Binary is precisely two. At least two is 2, 3, 4, 5..... unbounded. And multiple, 2 is the grounding of multiplicity. Every set of multiple phenomenon always contains 2 minimum. OK, but binary means 2 and 2 only. "2 minimu...

Re: Fodder 'n' Frivolities: a complaint against Spectacle Society

And now I understand context sensitivity? Lol, I have been stating context for awhile. Not as long as I've been telling you to read about Type 1 Grammars ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chomsky_hierarchy#Type-1_grammars ). They are also known as context -sensitive grammars.

Re: All Propositions Have Binary Meanings

Not necessarily, if I am observing binary meanings as multiple meanings through one sentence. So now you are saying that "binary meaning" is "multiple meanings". You are saying that "multiple" means 2. Because binary means 2. Strawman question the OP is about multiple meanings through one propositi...

Re: Intuitionist Double Negation --> Aristotelian P=P --> Double Positives

In classical Propositional Logic(PL)(which I presume is what you're mangling) there is no 'If P exists'. The standard semantics are True and False so the formula is read as 'if P is true'. What do you mean by 'if P exists'? Propositions are types ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curry%E2%80%93Howard...

How do you test that you know what you know?

And if you are going to self-science yourself - how do you test that you don't know?
