Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

Was there a point that there was no human and things were in motion? No. No humans = no "things" and no "motion" which are supposedly human realizations. To be realistic we have to start with the real, i.e. whence humans cognize reality. Note Meno's 'how can you know something when you do not know ...

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

Lol who is 'we'? Okay You have perverted views. How can you seriously logically make the assumption, and then jump to a conclusion, that I have perverted views based on just the asking to you of this very simple and basic Truly OPEN clarifying question, and/or writing "okay"? You are ignorant of "w...

Re: Explaining Everything Explains Nothing

What is a philosopher to do when he realizes that explaining everything , doesn't really explain anything ? Now this term "philosopher" really is strictly nothing in itself and hence applies quite literally to the human condition. Discuss Your views above is an issue of conflation and deception. Po...

Re: The reality is indifferent

Everything that is alive will eventually die because immmortality is not physically possible And so the extinction of the human species at some future point in time can be predicted Even the Universe itself shall die when it acquires heat death through maximum entropy How CERTAIN of this are you?

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

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 'mind[s]' is, and then if you can, also explain what it/they do and/or how it/they work. Note we are sure what a 'mind' is from the current knowle...

Re: ALL is an Illusion

Just give me your model of change in illusion. Consider there are two states of affair X and Y. Change occurs from X to Y. Please analyse the change in details. Not sure of your points above. I'll try; Say there are two states of affairs. Marble-A moving in one direction. Marble-A knock into Marble...

Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

Well, the point is how could you have anything if there is no beginning for time. You can't play God here and insist you are omniscient. The reality is we should start with everything we have on hand and work backward to the point of knowledge our experience and reason can substantiate it. The poin...

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: 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...
