Re: Mind and physical

I think I understand you. You believe that human mind exists because it is emergent and reality exist as a result of human mind. You are bounding two things together where each is an illusion. Such a thing cannot change and persist. Not reality exists as a result of human mind. I am NOT implying re...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

If you are a believer of Allah then what you do is good. Islam and Christianity for example are both about submission. You can choose between Hell and Heaven though. Etc. First there is the linguistic issue. Hebrew and Arabic words are mainly from trilateral roots where a three-alphabet-root can ha...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

That sounds like an absolute. Nope. The above statement is explainable and conditioned* upon human mind[s]. * conditioned, thus not absolute. A human "mind[s]" HAS TO exit first BEFORE the above statement is explainable and conditioned upon it[them]. Now, define what you think or believe human 'min...

Re: A Modust Proposal

It is becoming clear to me that this forum consists almost entirely of complete nutters. Explains why the only active posters are the nutters besides Nick_A, Commonsense, a few others and some shitposters. Do not think too highly of yourself as a high achiever in Philosophy. Generally in forum like...

Re: Mind and physical

Physical state is arrangement of physical. You cannot have a thing, mind, out of a configuration of physical. You simply believe on magic not being aware of it. You have a difficult time to show that such a thing is possible in your illusory point of view. You don't even believe that matter is real...

Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

We are discussing two things in here: (1) Time cannot be emergent (cannot have any starting point) and (2) Time cannot be eternal. This leads to a dilemma. We first discuss (1) and then (2). 1) Time is the fundamental variable of any dynamical theory. Time therefore cannot be emergent variable of a...

Re: ALL is an Illusion

Everything in a way is an illusion. But one can have reality-as-it-is within an encompassing illusion, i.e. venn diagram as in; ILLUSION-A [reality-as-it-is] ILLUSION-A is a main set while reality-as-it-is is the subset . Within the subset of 'reality-as-it-is' there could be a sub-subset of illusi...

Re: ALL is an Illusion

Illusion is subjected to destruction. Therefore you cannot have a reality which persist. Note "change is the only constant" therefore everything is "destroyed" eventually. Since "change is the only constant" there is no reality which persists permanently. Your theory 'a reality which persists' is a...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

It is very often claimed 'Islam' means peace, but it is not the case. I believe the truth must prevail rather than merely blind beliefs. Here is an interesting video which explains very clearly what "Islam" means exactly via analysis of its root elements S-L-M pictorially. https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

I have asserted the ultimate idea of God is NEVER empirical nor empirically possible, thus the idea of God ultimately cannot be proven via Science.

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

There are no absolutes Thus it is never wrong for whatever to be proven or concluded to be tentative Calling a proof tentative sounds positively oxymoronic and that is why science does not use such language Every fact and law and theory adds to the body of knowledge accumulated over time but that n...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

There are no absolutes ever. Thus it is never wrong for whatever to be 'proven' or 'concluded' to be tentative. It is even possible that accepted mathematical axioms could be changed, one can never be absolute certain about it. It is well understood [by default] 'scientific knowledge' conclusions o...
