Re: A Simple Language Test for Analytical Thinkers

"When one loses the language, one loses the society." -JSS, I think that this is very true.

Re: If multiverse exist - Will we live for eternity?

Re: Consciousness and free will.

Re: Do you do better thinking when you're not fully focused?

You are more likely to have aural hallucinations if you need silence to read? Who said this? I have never heard that before.

Re: Do you do better thinking when you're not fully focused?

I don't do better thinking that way. I could never study or read without it being silent. Though some people can do that somehow.

Re: Do you need consciousness to have emotion?

Yes, you would need to be conscious in order to be aware of the emotion that you are feeling at the time. Without it, you wouldn't know what you are feeling.

Re: The Problem of Nominality or "proper names"
