Re: knowing the knowledge

My experience with Dennett's thoughts leave me seriously questioning his biasses, agendas, and how they interfere with his philosophical practice. I'm uninpressed with his 'thoughts' to say the least. I'd be happy to take him on point by point, sometime well after I'm dead, I hope! How boring and r...

Re: knowing the knowledge

Obviously the multiple drafts model means nothing to you. If there is something that you care to present in refutation of something I say, please, feel free. But this is unworthy. There are many 'models' that are crap! Much obsolete garbage all over the place. Any 'model' of which you care to get m...

Re: knowing the knowledge

Hi nameless, It may be the case that the instant something is experienced it can't be altered, however one monent after that, it can be. Nope! This IS the "moment after that"! All moments of existence exist Now! All moments already are as they are! Just like now! And Now! And Now! What is, is, Now!...

Re: Thinking

Thought has no basis in reality, it is your minds way of trying to guess what your unconscious is planning, or was intending. Basically your mind is a total BS artist, a complete charletan and anything it happends to get right is usually just a good guess.

Re: knowing the knowledge

Hi nameless, You gave a very broad or rather i should say that a metaphysical explanation of the term 'knowledge', but, i am pointing towards a limited reference, which was there in the quote. Actually, the quote was restricted to the phenomenon of 'writing' instead of 'knowledge'. So, the point of...

Re: What's really going on?

How about asking your not so drug impared friend what he perceives and trusting him ahead of your own impared judgements. The fact that you know you have taken a perception altering substance means you shouldn't trust those perceptions.

Re: free will-how can it exist?

Our very use of language here makes it obvious that something must be wrong with the concept itself. Look at this: The common expression is "I have a free will" rather than "I am a free will". But how can my will be free if it's in my possession? The phrase suggests that my will is not free from "m...

Re: Love

:lol: I see your point. But there is a big distinction there. Chaz is trying to tell me that what I have experienced as a woman is bollocks. I am telling him that it has been my experience as a woman that *most* men will not wait for a year or longer or shorter for that matter to try and convince a...

Re: free will-how can it exist?

You first need to understand that the traditional view of free will, being an agent or being within us which is the beginning of the causal chain which produces action from nowhere is a troublesome and useless concept, and one which is nonsensical. The idea that somehow the mind can produce somethin...

Re: Is DarkMatter a Joke in Light of No Existing Central Sun?

Wow, this is really interesting and I kind of half wondered if astronomers could really account for all the mass of the galaxy by observing, and it seems there really is alot of mass that has gone unobserved. I never really liked the idea of dark matter, always saw it as more of a placeholder for an...

Re: Is Time Slowing Down?

If one Planck time is defined as the time it takes a photon to move 1 Planck length then surely this is the same as regularly perceived time slowing as well. The speed of light is incorporated into the definition of the Planck length. If you change one, you change the other. If time were "slowing d...

Re: Is Time Slowing Down?

I like this idea of time slowing down and have actually wondered it myself, but instead my thoughts drifted towards a variable speed of light. I wonder, would this aparrent slowing of time explain cosmic expansion? I imagine the speed of time would be proportional to the density of the universe and...

Re: Open Question on Quantization of Gravity

Interesting concept, and I hope you get a reply from smolin. I can't really comment on the acceleration concept as I haven't really grasped it. However another thought occured to me regarding the possible granularity of space. Suppose a single light source emits light in all directions, and evenly, ...
