Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Whales have scrotums? Shit. Hey Bill... gotta pic? Satyr, That 'article' needs focus. You cannot possibly expect someone else on a philosophy forum to read that thing in it's entirety. Especially given the intro. Way too many categorical leaps. Break it down. Which part would you engage with me? Pic...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

You were definitely emotionally motivated earlier within this thread. Perhaps. The intellectual tension that you were experiencing from not being able to obtain a distinctive leg-up upon your co-poster aided to your emotional/creative desire to be understood. Do you see what i am saying? Well, let'...

Evidently, the "bumpy road" involved more than just a trying dialogue in Bill's mind.

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Could be... I don't know. Could also be that it is not a "gift", but more like a curse. Could be that it is a result of my own biological tendencies being influenced by my reading large amounts of poetry at a young age. Could be...

All kinds of things...

No?

Gifts are given. From whom/what shall I say this "gift" has been given to me?

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

I failed to point out that you creativesoul had an excellent poem that must have been created within a few minutes. That was awesome!
Thank you, it wasn't much... really. I can take no credit for that of which I am not responsible... the capability, I mean.

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

...nor will I hide my true evaluations of you. This is a useful example, one that could help shed some light on the question in the OP. There is a kind of queerness at work/play here, which could lend itself to unnecessary confusion if not carefully looked at. We need to analyze how the word "true"...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Your certainty does not exclude error. Correct! It includes the possibility for error - or the degree of possibility - if you prefer. Nice way of pretending to say something without saying anything. you rpetty much argue against everything, depending no how confident you feel within each context. W...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

maybe knowledge it would be. what about wisdom? is empirism what is stopping you to think other isms and stories about your cup of coffee?

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Alright, Now that the show is over, let's put away the comedy/tragedy masks, make a point to give proper credit to Thespian Troupe 1709 and then saddle up and do some philosophy. From a few pages back, these things warrant my attention... Satyr: Because reality is fluid, any evaluation of it is obso...
