Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

So on philosophy forums, in philosophy departments in philosophy books and magazines.
In the minds of philosophers, or people who do philosophy the concept of "frompulteft" does not exist?!?!?

The concept exists in your mind and in my mind!
It exists on this forum now!

We created it b talking about it.

It only exists in your mind as it means nothing to me or anyone else since it is entirely meaningless so no more for me to say here
No philosophy book or magazine or department or other philosophy forum is discussing it so you are in a minority of precisely one
Philosophy is the love of wisdom but there is zero wisdom or even practicality to be gained from discussing one meaningless word
So it is time to leave this non discussion and focus on something more substantial from a philosophical / metaphysical perspective

The same way you define emptiness.

SteveKlinko wrote: Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:13 pm Here is your question again:
Can "Oneness" and "Redness" be put into words or not? This is not a word-play - this is a yes/no question.

That was no rhetorical question.
You even emphasize a yes/no answer.
Steve, you are very dishonest man. The above is a rhetorical question, even though I emphasize a yes/no answer.
Because the answer to the rhetorical question is obviously "Yes, Oneness and Redness can be put into words".
If the answer was "No" then you could not have asked the question to begin with!

SteveKlinko wrote: Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:13 pm I know you must know what a rhetorical question actually is so this is a pure grammar school prank again.
You just continue to play juvenile word games.
Well, Steve. It is a juvenile game to try and pretend that you didn't put Oneness and Redness in to words, when that is exactly what you have done!
SteveKlinko wrote: Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:13 pm Back to the question of this topic, which you are trying to obstruct, and in your manner of speaking:
What the hell is Oneness?!?!?
I have no bloody clue, Steve! If you don't know what Oneness is, why are you using the word?
You are obviously not going to let up on your infantile misdirection of the purpose of this thread. I'm out. Bye.

Steve, if the purpose of the thread was to put Oneness and Redness into words, then I have some great news for you!

Mission accomplished! Purpose satisfied.

That is not mis-direction. That is literally me directing your attention to the fact that you succeeded.

I asked him. And mind is different from emptiness. I used to think otherwise.
