Re: The Meaning of Life - Original New Theory (Prt 1)

To me, the human being creature's behavior has radically changed 'mostly' compared to every other known creature. I don't think so. 60 million years ago ALL mammals were tree dwelling rodents. Humans still climb trees, and have the same basic limb structure as the first amphibian that walked out of...

Re: x

Any "meaning" given to life has to be wholly personal. I disagree, most "meaning" of life theories are personal, and try to explain it in 'human' experiences,etc. However my theory covers the whole of life on Earth, from the 3.5 billion yr old bacteria, and the entire evolution of life on this plan...

Re: x

Thanks for your comments, I now know which sections need more clarification and research. I haven't stayed up to date, did somebody explain that your theory is religion dressed as science yet? I don't think it deserves the term "theory". It's just a set of purely personal assumptions and prejudices...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

Can we say that introspection is a form of observation? No. I take your point, but I would like to know what led you to say so. Observation is about the operation of the senses; primarily sight upon the external world. "introspection", no, "extraspection", yes. Some of our senses give us informatio...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

The difference between rationalism and empiricism is in the method of proof. Rats https://patch.com/maryland/baltimore/baltimore-most-rat-infested-cities-list-again-orkin In the twisted rationality of the Left, if you accurately say that a rat-infested city is infested with rats, based on empiricis...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

Without relating to some THING, ideas do not survive without hard relevance. Yes, ideas (thoughts) do not survive (live through) unless they relate to some material thing. They only exist until the instant that they no longer survive. Thoughts that do not correlate to some material thing only exist...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

I reject your "false choice" per characters. I stated prior i hate any TV show post 2000............so only like "old shows" where the characters are not asshole nor PC. Your admitted ignorance about post 2000 TV does not give you the right to talk about any post 2000 TV. You are just making an ars...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

I do not use YT as a TV source. The question was reasonable in the context. As for Threads, thanks for the reminder. I saw it on TV in 1984 when the nuclear debate was a big political issue in the UK. Not thought about it since. There are several directors who use this naturalistic style to good ef...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

why do you like TV filled with assholes as main characters? It's a refreshing change from the ceaseless pressure to get you to identify with characters with PC personality disorder. I reject your "false choice" per characters. I stated prior i hate any TV show post 2000............so only like "old...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

pearls before swine i guess ;-(. Every episode was basically the same. Mulder open minded gullible; skully scientific skeptic; argue over a stupid predictable scenario. Will they ever shag?

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

But seriously - even the most abstract ideas and systems of thought have empirical correlates.

No?
Have you an example that does not rely at some point about your existence in the real world or are you content to live inside your own head?
