Re: Not Everything Is Physical

Sorry I missed this post earlier. The point being here is that language/ideas necessarily require perception. You simply cannot have the idea of ‘shapes’ or ‘democracy’ without something to apply it to. Not to mention the kind of ‘ideas’ you are referring to seem to be ‘words’ which are concepts de...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

You two may find aesthetics a more stable pursuit. The tail chasing exercise of articulating in words what cannot be expressed in words will end in solipsism and/or nihilism. Then again, it may lead to a closer scrutiny of logic? At the moment the past few posts seem to be stuck in an epistemic bub...

Re: All religion begins with this notion:

Something that has meaningful coherency is intended and purposed to function for a reason. The existence of a written letter 'A' demands meaningful coherency to exist and that demands human agency. So too, the existence of organized life demands meaningful coherency and that demands intentional age...

Re: Does absolute truth exist?

It seems to me that proof of absolute truth is of major importance to epistemology. So, when I heard Robert Sapolsky lectures on youtube, I was surprised to find that, in scientific literature there is a constant. That constant is error. Sapolsky doesn't study physics nor chemistry, but rather, the...

Re: How can we defeat "us vs. them" mentality?

Is it possible to break down "us vs. them" mentality? How? I suggest: * Ban on team sports on large/nationwide levels. * Ban on non-professional uniforms (police officers should carry a uniform as part of their profession, but uniforms symbolizing an ideology or religion should be banned - like Ku-...

But I'm getting off topic. I agree in essence to what you mean. If we can even remotely think of something certain, it has to relate to everything in some way.
Does that actually mea anything? Are you a fan of Derrida by any chance?

Re: Hey

Please note I’m not asking for an apology. That is your game and if you care to argue that it isn’t I could post several instances of you doing so over four different forums. I do wonder who you’ll direct your venom at next with demands for apologies after the usual goading and baiting? How many tim...

Re: Hey

Take this nugget of advice: It is normal (alas) on philosophy boards to deplore the opponent and voice dismay with the opponent's characteristics (real or imagined) that are absolutely nothing to do with the topic, when the opponent has defeated the argument of the one by logical means. I think this...

Re: My novel:- Alpha Two

At least switch to first person present. If you want to stick with the tense and perspective you’ll have to lengthen the piece and work much harder at it - it can be done, but it takes expertise. I enjoy playing with tense in this way so I fully appreciate that you’ve done this for effect - it doesn...

Re: My novel:- Alpha Two

You should start by addressing the use of tense. There are plenty of writing forums where you can get good feedback - this needs to be workshopped quite heavily (note: I only read the first couple of paragraphs).

GL enjoy the process and you’re sure to improve.

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

When the members of a movement start attacking each other more and more you know the movement is dead. My own idealistic view of feminism is to view it as a means of men and women viewing human life from the perspective of women FOR humankind (not for the benefit of men or women). Women are role mod...

Re: Some Solid Ideas

It just makes sense to address what is and isn’t a commonly held concept - in reference to ‘drawers’ we wouldn’t apply concepts like ‘time’ or ‘numbers’ as physical contents of a ‘drawer’. Anything else is simply a language game. Note: I’ve not read the article so my dog isn’t in the race (whatever ...
