Re: There is no 'Matter of Fact' [Analytic].

Regarding 'is-ness' and continuum of existence, Max Planck said subatomic energies were divided into quanta. Why would time, space, and force not be divided into quanta? Quantization is the general strategy employed in Quantum physics. It works until it doesn't. Gravity cannot be quantized which le...

Re: There is no 'Matter of Fact' [Analytic].

It is very hard to say what "human nature" is. It's very hard to say what anything IS. Because the entire notion of "is-ness" is Philosophical horseshit. From the 1st person perspective the question is: What am I, really? From the 3rd person perspective the question is: What are you, really? Both o...

Re: The meaning of emergence

Probably the easiest way to describe third force is the example of the seesaw. Imagine two kids plying on a seesaw. The subject or active force is the kid pushing down. Then they switch. The kid who was active force is now the passive force and the other pushing down becomes active force. The third...

Re: the limits of fascism

Do you think it is an insult to ask you if you have bias towards anti-intellectualism? I actually think it's very funny. If you knew me at all, you'd know just how funny it is. But no, I don't find it insulting...just, maybe, a bit overconfident as a diagnosis. On the other hand, what would you say...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

The philosophy of mind can be nothing more than an explanation of how we use, or could use, the word 'mind', its cognates and related words. That's such reductionist nonsense.

Re: the limits of fascism

If Immanuel were to admit that he is subject to confirmation bias that would be good for him. Heh. :D It's not that, B. It's that I'm utterly uninterested in the process by which a skeptic attempts to shift questions of truth and factuality to a discussion of the character or motives of the speaker...

Immanuel Can, you are ... Ad hominem rant. Not bothering. If you had finished the sentence you'd see it wasn't an ad hominem attack at all. You're an idiot. We are all of us biased towards our favourite belief so that we like incoming information that confirms it and dislike that which contradicts ...
