I don't know what to say, since you didn't really look at his thesis on Platonic realism and Rene Guenon and decided to take the guy's words about Nominalism out of context.

Re: Nominalism vs Realism and Metaphysics of René Guénon

To answer your question jump to 3 min mark: 3:00 there is no community, there is no solidarity, these things are accidental. 8:58 science is relative, never fundamental. Science can talk about 2ndayr issues and questions, is incapable to deal with primary issues and questions. That is logic.. These...

Re: Nominalism vs Realism and Metaphysics of René Guénon

LOL? He dwell in outdated stuff that any reasonable intelligent person would dismiss. He says we'r together only by chance, that is disregarding genetic memory that makes humans form bonds, and due to genetic memory we will have elaborate behaviour steerd by our subconciousness. What he says disreg...

Re: Nominalism vs Realism and Metaphysics of René Guénon

Yes, I guess it is pretty much what science ignore that makes it so successful.As you say, scientific instrumentalism doesn't really care for the ontological status of objects. It worries about how good its predictions are rather than address any questions about deeper realities. It is a good thing...

George Gurdjieff's Dance(s)

I've been looking a little bit into the sacred dance(s) of George Gurdjieff, and I find it very interesting because of the metaphysics behind Gurdjieff's sacred dance and overall the possible metaphysics of dancing and posture. Seems to be a connection to movements of all forms and the spiritual ene...

Re: Nominalism vs Realism and Metaphysics of René Guénon

I'm watching a video discussing nominalism vs realism (as in that of Platonic realism). Real good! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcnJCFZPQw4 Interesting for sure. I always like to look at this type of discussion in terms of, "what shall we call it?" versus "what is it?". Plato's realism could be l...

Symbolism 4: The Keys

What are the keys that are present in the Christian, Zoroastrian, and Roman religion(s)? Matthew 16:19 speaks of Jesus giving the keys of the kingdom of heaven to St. Peter. Revelation 1:18 speaks of Jesus (or God) that he has the keys of hell and death. Janus, the Roman god of time, duality, etc., ...

No brainer. Better to put up with the persecution of evils and be strong than to create more evil in this world.

Re: Symbolism 3: The Horned One

What is your point with all this symbolism? Are you determining if there is a conspiracy of man? or God? Whether or not it's a conspiracy or some proof of a God or something divine can be based upon further research into history, which includes looking into more overlooked parts of it. Though i'm n...

Re: A Review of Libertarianism

Please read "The Ouzo Prophecy" at http://church-of-ouzo.com/pdf/ouzo-prophecy.pdf , and let me know if anybody but a prophet could have possibly written it. If you call yourself "Bob the Baptist" and that you're the "Precursor of the Second Coming of Christ", then it doesn't make sense then to cal...

Re: A Review of Libertarianism

You don't think a foreign worker's low pay or poor working conditions are OK? Let me throw another piece of logic at you. Unless those workers are slaves and being forced to work in those factories, I guess their alternative is even worse. Put that in your left-wing, liberal pipe and smoke it. My f...
