Philosophies...

Philosophies are Religions without an Absolute. Philosophy is malleable and always unsure. Philosophy is an attempt at diversity thru intellect. Philosophy is the unguarded twin of Religion, without a Temple, without the faithful... a vagabond on the landscape seeking that which lies beyond religiou...

Understanding nothing and more

But that is precisely what god is: no thing. Now, I don't mean to say that since god is nothing that it is meaningless... quite...

Re: What are the main problems of philosophy?

Philosophy is a gabfest of opinions which the majority cannot agree on.

These boards are witness of this.

After 15 years plus has passed, is it not to the benefit of the world to continue moving forward..? Anniversaries are fine but to continue dwelling on that which is no longer benefits nobody but the enquirer.

Re: A bit of Einstein

There is no universal now, present, past or future instead there are relative points of observation. Re: "There is no universal now, present, past or future ..." This moment is all there is, i.e. "Now", universally comprehended. "Now" is the transcendental state of existence which is not restricted...

A bit of Einstein

Einstein Einstein: "People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." Interesting comment... past, present and future, where present may be interpreted as 'now' which it certainly could be construed to mean ...

Re: Careful! They are Words

mtmynd1, I love the way you have written about being careful with words and we definitely should be, but I do believe that words speak our heart/mind and so they reflect exactly what is in our heart/mind. So even if let's say I am not careful with words, truth to the listener/reader will hit home n...

Re: ~ Fellow Philosophers, Come Find Yourself Beneath Your - Self ~

Intellectualism and Philosophy are deeply dependent upon each other to maintain their intellectualism and philosophies. Without either one there wouldn't be intellectualism or philosophies. And mind is the origin of these two combined. If it wasn't for mind to comprehend intellectualism or philosoph...

Re: Time does not exist.

Time is a concept that we use to have an idea about two motions, one is our standard clock and another is subject of our experience.
Time is the passage of moments.
