I listen to how you describe yourself and what you claim and then I look at the content of your little piccys.

I'm not sure you know me...


Regardless...




All the best to you

Your images speak from your subconscious as to the real you.

As you admit, your words are your lies.

NLP needs not your wishes and will fret not when its replaced by something better as what it has works well for now. Whereas you appear to be getting nowhere fast. Best of luck with that.

This is your problem. As if one makes them congruent with ones thoughts then they are true.

All our words, all our thoughts are an estrangement of reality.

This is a difficult philosophical concept to comprehend. Do not distress if this does not resonate with you within the first blush.



All good.


Peace.

Bill, If you are telling us that all of our words are nothing but lies then we can assume you believe the statement has some truth value attached.

The consequences of, "All our words are lies", being a true statement, makes your statement false.

Yes.



We are able to speak a relative truth
that is actually no more valid than it's opposite; relative lie.


The Bible got this one right...the land of confusion.

Do you mean an alienation or a difference? If you mean the former then I'd disagree as our thoughts are essentially perceptions of reality as provided by the senses and there is no another sense of reality possible.

You appear to confuse words with thoughts?

This is a difficult philosophical concept to comprehend. Do not distress if this does not resonate with you within the first blush.
If you'd read any 17th and 18th century philosophy you'd understand that such things have been comprehended and explicated fairly well. That you haven't should cause you great embarrassment upon a philosophy forum but then the gnu has a thick skin.
All good.
Not really but hey ho.
Peace.[/size]
On you too.

Our thoughts are essentially perceptions; estrangements of reality as provided by the senses and there are a myriad of realities possible.

Is there any reason being a legitimate philosoper in today's world is significantly different than being a legitimate philosoper in any other time? You've always got to use the best information available to you, even if that leads in a completely different direction as the zeitgeist advances.
