Re: Principle of Charity

The Principle of Charity says that you should ascribe to any interlocutor the best possible interpretation of their words that you can manage. 'Best'? We interpret how we do, not how we like. We are all unique Perspectives, we all see things differently. None see the 'complete picture', all see a v...

Re: An ‘unknown’ electron.

I am going to a talk on the electron by Prof Andy Schofield of the University of Birmingham in just over a week. I don't understand what this means. Does it mean that you are going to give a talk on the Professor's work? That you are he? Not really important, but what is might be the following; His...

Re: New Discovery

I'm not a sarcastic person. So I will say, once again, thank you for saying hi to me in a warm way. I really truly appreciated it. :) Good! And I can appreciate that you can find warmth where i have not. That says to me that you are a warm person (at that moment, anyway), as 'warmth' is in the eye ...

Re: New Discovery

Thanks for your warm welcome. Sarcasm already? A defensive reaction? Did I offend you somehow? (You don't come to a philosophy forum to have your vanity stroked, IMHO.) From what you just wrote, are you saying that no one can come to any logical conclusions that are backed up by solid evidence? con...

Re: New Discovery

Dear friends, I have been on the internet for some time, and it's a very difficult undertaking. Why is this so? Because people look back at one's online history and come to false conclusions. Will you give me space in which to speak before jumping to conclusions?? I hope so. :) I am uninterested in...

Re: What is the Source of the Universe ?

The only way that you can assert such a thing, paradoxically, is by understanding the "origins of the Universe", and how that 'understanding' relates to the present state of a (particular?) mind's 'evolution'. How so? Just because you can understand the question 'What is the source of universe?' it...
