A Short Essay: Perceptions of Experience & Experiences of Perception

Perceptions of Experience & Experiences of Perception As the title suggests there is a strange misapplication of terms easy to slip into during the event of communicating, and processing, any given idea. As an example of this I am going to explore the use of the term ‘hammer’ and the experiences an...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Steve - In reply to your last question ... NO. Or maybe you meant something different? I don’t know because you don’t, and haven’t, made yourself explicit enough. I’m only willing to guess so much. If you don’t see that the concepts of ‘redness’ and ‘number/ness’ are ‘objects’ - in Husserlian terms...

Re: Ultimate Reality

This is not a commutative process - it only works one way - other minds can tell me what to think but not the reverse And so I see no reason for indoctrinating other minds to think like me because they should be thinking for themselves I agree, but I am simply asking why you aren't doing the same e...

Re: You cannot stop thinking

Sit in a chair in a still, quiet room, for one hour. Just sit there and don't move and don't think. You will find it impossible to remain thought free for more than ten seconds. This is the equivalent of driving a car with no brakes. The only time there is PEACE (OF MIND) is when you CRASH each nig...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

It would be dishonest of me not to point this out to anyine seduced by your whimsical use of terminology. All terminology is an audible optical illusion of sound and light...source unknown. There is no such thing as a rainbow, it's an artificially contructed image of the imagless, it's a concept kn...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Don - How not to use language: Colour is an optical illusion. A rainbow is an optical illusion, colour isn’t an ‘illusion’. These terms actually have technical meaning and use. The rest of what you wrote is merely drivel, or at best poetical/mystical jargon. It would be dishonest of me not to point ...

Re: Is it ok to teach other people metaphysics?

You wish to discuss metaphysics. Are you ‘teaching’ or discussing? Is there a difference? Understanding what we say is very much a part of epistemology. If you wish to ‘understand’ you have a foot firmly planted in the ‘metaphysical world’. So I do have ‘knowledge of metaphysics’ does that count? I...

Re: Is it ok to teach other people metaphysics?

Human beings cannot help but have thoughts but not being so certain of them could help here Your statement is only a half truth. The other half of the truth is that no human being ever thought a thought in it's entire life. Thoughts are in no body. When is a human being not a human being? Answers a...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Steve - Here is a slice of text from what I’m currently reading that touches in this matter: In addition to this difficulty of reaching firm results, capable of being self-evidently reidentified on many occasions, we have the further difficulty of stating such results , of communicating them to othe...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Steve - Neurophenomenology. If you’ve solved the hard problem I don’t see any sign of it yet. If you’re saying - as it appears to be the case - that the phenomenology approach requires careful investigation you’re not going to get an argument from me there. The Hard Problem is alive and well. But y...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Steve - Stating the obvious can sometimes help. There are numerous ways to try and express an idea/viewpoint. Honestly I think you’re going to have a hard time with this one here unless you try a different tack and/or supplement what you mean with another separate, yet related, line of questioning/...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

Skepdick - You cannot say ‘not true’ when what I said is true - there is video evidence of this. Even chickens can figure out puzzles in order to get food; as can many other creatures. As for people with no language they do generally, create a language. Cases of feral children show that there is mor...
