Re: What is information?

So I'm not going to blame myself for your own behavior, but just learn that I have to be more cautious and concerned by your own motives when around you. I wasn't suggesting you were being unintelligent, but you can still be wrong. My only motives around you is to correct errors, challenge you inte...

Re: Is There Progress in Philosophy?

This sounds more like fragmentation than progress. So what? There's no reason why fragmentation can't be progress. Nobody said the goal of philosophy was to have one philosophy, so progressing towards any goal in philosophy would not depend on whether there's one or more philosophies. (Philosophy a...

Re: How close to reality can a scientific model get?

Straight Path ≡ having equal length on all bordering sides. Curved Path ≡ having unequal length on any bordering side. Actually, if you look at my post just prior to yours, I could further say that everything could be assumed to be curved, and that straight is just a special case arising out of you...

It looks a bit like the image on a playing card. Your real name wouldn't happen to be Jack, would it?
No. My born name is Emil, but I recently changed that legally to Amici (latin for Friend).

Re: What is information?

Define 'trivial'. Whatever your personal idea of what this is is highly subjective. We all carry the burden of the universe upon our shoulders. For this reason we all need to keep a macroscopic perspective together with our microscopic personal one. People who obsess with matters that do not aid in...

Re: What really matters?

What's important? Most people will immediately think in personal terms and say - my family, my marriage, my security, my art, my state of mind - my something. And that's true; those personal issues do require the majority of our effort and concern. But, look outside - farther. What really matters i...

Re: What is information?

Got it? I see a huge major flaw in your thought-process. If you spend time with trivial matters, how would you know the important ones? In other words: people who dedicate their time and their efforts to work on trivial matters, cannot be smart, because they don't have the time to be smart. You cou...

Re: Is There Progress in Philosophy?

As already have been mentioned but less to the point, philosophy progresses quantitatively. But philosophy also progresses, like physics, in multiple directions, by generating deeper and more complex understandings. Simply put it: we can have more points of view, but we can also have bigger (deeper)...

Re: What is information?

Nice interpretation. I thought of this similarly but with respect to a need for one's intelligence. I proposed that people (or any animal) lacks necessity for intelligence and would opt NOT to become moreso except for whether one's goals are limited and to what extent. The more barrier or harder it...

Re: How close to reality can a scientific model get?

In my opinion, Einstein's Theory of Relativity comes closest because every one of its predictions (except two - gravity waves and wormholes) have been verified. Is it the same as reality? One of the difficulties in understanding it is the warping of space. As it is a theory or model, what it's actu...

Fat guy writes about fitness

Yo, I'm a fat person. Like properly fat, not big boned, no, I got a biiiig belly up front. Ironically, I wrote a 56 stanzas long comedic fantasy poem about fitness and snoring which I hoped to share with you. Well, here it is: The Snore and the Roar 1. Once upon a time, from the skies to a place The...

Re: In and out of style

There's no reason to believe that boredom alone is always a factor. It can be a factor, but more likely it has to do with the way things become popular to begin with: namely something gives that particular thing credibility, legitimacy, tastefulness. It can be a celebrity, it can be an authority, or...

Re: Does not having free will mean there's no consciousness?

I equate consciousness with existence PhilX There's no reason with why you should equate consciousness with existence. Do you even have a solid meaning behind talking about "existence"? Or did you mean to say that consciousness "implies" existence, so that your actual question is whether or not con...
