Should you think about your duty, or about the consequences of your actions? Or should you concentrate on becoming a good person?
So, uuuuuh, it sounds like you are as committed to the Witgensteinian/Actor-Network model as I am.
Which is fine. But I am committed to more than that. Are you?
I am expressing my inner emotional state. I am laughing because I have concluded that you have misunderstood me. Which is ironic, given that you appointed yourself as the "understander of individuals".
Interpret that as you will.
Yeah! I am trying to trigger your humanity behind the formal/Philosophical bullshit.
Imagine that! The contrarian asshole is more human than the posturing Philosophers.
I am on the side of Logic AND humanity. I am the analytical AND continental philsoopher.
What's left for you?
Oh, I get irony! I just choose to ignore it. It's a red herring.uwot wrote: ↑Wed Jul 08, 2020 6:14 pm Perhaps they'll work on you; I'm just waiting for the right moment. Hm. This might be the time:Someone who doesn't get irony calling themselves an "ironist". Priceless
I just pretend to be one. That's good Philosophy, right? The fact that I have convinced you signals to me that I have Philosophy all figured out!
It's fucking bullshit!
As you have clearly figured out - I am exceptional at pretending to be a sociopath.
Do you want to interact with the real human yet, or would you prefer that I continue to philosophise/sociphatise?
Because I can totally pretend (much better than you can) that you are not allowed to say ANYTHING about emotions, feelings and subjectivity. Par for the Philosophical course.
I am "dumb" to the power of infninty.
Are you hating the player or the game?
Narcissism is about self-admiration, no?
How much of a narcissist can I really be if I consciously make you hate me?
How much of a narcissist can I really be if I consciously degrade myself?
let me let you in on a secret: if I let you believe that I am a dick and a skeptic - you can't use it against me.
It's almost as if I know that "Tu quoque" is every Philosopher's crutch. Obviously - because I use it against you.
Why doesn't the "understander" understand that?
Get a grip Skepdick, you're a character, remember? Either that or it's a Scooby Doo moment when you pull off the hideous monster mask and, well I never, there's a hideous human underneath it.
Don't hate the player - hate the game.
Philosophy. Behind the philosophical mask there sure is a human.
So it may well be a fair thing to say that philosophy breeds psychopaths.
Well, I was kinda reaching out to the creator of Skepdick; whoever it is who howls out:
I was rather hoping that there might actually be such a thing behind the 'dumb philosopher' ugliness. If you're in there, come out and play. If not, I'll just keep slapping this Skepdick character.
Which "creator of Skepdick"? There are so many.
My individual choices? My parents? My social circle? My cultural background? The habitat? The universe? All of them bits are necessary - none are sufficient to tell the story.
Perhaps you want to be more specific with your question?
Of course there is! But when in Rome, do as the Romans do.
It's a strange game - the only winning move is to not play.
Damned if I play by the rules - damned if I don't. Kobayashi Maru...
The one that made you a twat.
are out of your control. If life has fucked you up, don't expect life to fix you. If you want to be a twat, that is entirely your choice.
Oh great. On top of self-loathing we have self-pity.
And Star Trek references. All you need now is a comic book store and yer good to go.
Skepdick or the puppeteer?
Whose choice? Skepdick or the puppeteer?
Or you have one-upmanship on Philosophical psychopathy. Perspective...
Philosophy. Comics. What's the difference? It's all story-telling.
Having reached out to the puppeteer; he looks very like Skepdick with his own fist up his arse. But again, if there is some other creative source responsible, by all means drop in. Can't guarantee I won't think you're a twat, but you've got fuck all to lose in that respect.
If the twat is who you want to speak with then I guess I have to maintain appearances...

From one puppeteer to another - I am left with the same impression.

Well, hey - I keep dropping by. You keep ignoring me...
Shall we try again. In a language you (supposedly) speak?
You really don't. I've made it clear that if there is more to you than a twat, then I am happy to talk to you.
Seriously? I presume you have had some feelings. What does any one of them feel like? If you an answer that, then you know what understanding feels like.
