So, I recently begun adhering to a daily schedule. At first I felt very restricted and trapped. But as time went on, I begun to felt fulfilled, happy, and "free" in a way. Like, I had no stresses and problems to face since I didn't hold off in doing them. Does being free actually make people feel free? Or are they two separate things? — adamhakeemiforv
I don't think your analogy really works. Unlike physics (which can be explained with mathematical precision) libertarian free will thoughts cant be.
I agree that it is fallacy to say that If God knows X, then necessarily X.
However, since God only knows the actual state of affairs, and that that includes every thought and action I do, then how could I ever make those thoughts and actions otherwise or fail to happen? — Walter Pound
As many in the past have reached this conclusion more or less, it all comes down to the most simple of questions. To be or not to be?
Some live good lives even though they know that life is ultimately pointless.
So what keeps you alive, and why? Do you have any tips on how to get past nihilism? — Rhasta1
Good question. — Judaka
How would you explain your awareness of other minds without using causation? — Harry Hindu
XIf you could remove your identity or your past how could you know that you chose to do that in the past if that past and that choice could potentially be faked? — pbxman
Isn't Buddhism just a political too to indoctrinate people to make them submissive and willing to be exploited with the existential promise to be saved in the next life? What's the psychological impact of reincarnation, karma and only looking trying to fix things only from the inside? — pbxman
don't think I'm being unreasonable by suggesting that such a complicated topic shouldn't be tackled by the imagination of an individual who knows nothing about it and hasn't experienced it. That should be the bare minimum, that you at least know a little bit about it and you have some experience with people who experience ugliness. — Judaka
ahaa here's the BIG MISTAKE. How do you know that wake up from a dream?what makes you sure that you didn't wake from a dream to enter another dream?..in night time you dream 3-4 dreams at least. And each time you get tricked that it's "reality " but it turns out it's a dream. Now whats happening right now is just another dream . You can't tell the difference..you know why? Because THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. Otherwise you could have been able to tell that it's a dream from it's very beginning. Think of an infinite dream..you will live for eternity inside that dream without knowing it's dream. Now that's what reality is. Infinite dream which you will never wake up from but to enter another one. — Nobody
I could whistle with you in syncronization as minor-conversational-tension rises, and whistle louder at the tender points, such as, when it is deemed that I've been whistling too much - I whistle a little quieter - and in that moment I've 'talked' through whistle, I've rationalized with the conversation, converged, to the level of what whistling is agreeable.
I could then walk with you, whistling, and as we pass a bird I whistle a little louder; then you've taken it as a pointer (when I whistled loud, I was clearly on about the birds in close vicinity).
This spur of the moment sign has much potential, you and I are not automatically stupid. We can grasp what others mean through the simplest stimuli.
If we substitute whistling for every tone and sound we can make, or movement, or special effect; just this one example sheds light onto the greater picture where there is room for improvement. — kill jepetto
Because it leads to rocks which suddenly cease to exist the very nanosecond that we all would. Because it can't plausibly explain the world, because it can't explain the world before and after we existed. Did rocks and everything else like them just suddenly spring into existence the very nanosecond that we did?
Do you find that convincing? Or, like me, do you find it way more convincing that that there's something wrong with the premises which lead us here? — S
No. I assure you it's not; but you must first try this process I have enveloped.
there is that spur of the moment jolt of energy that comes with the sign ability of marking, that you can synchronize with.
i would go on to say, I do this process on R6 with that sign set in a multiplayer process, and I have to first build tension. I have had others join in I know it works, and gets hyper; where what you are visualizing is as deep as feelings or mind. — kill jepetto
I agree these are the facts we base our morality on. But I don't see how to get past morality (how we ought to live) as subjective. — ZhouBoTong
If our morality is objective, why does it apply to animals far differently than it applies to humans? Is it a fact that animals are inferior to humans? — ZhouBoTong
If the alternative to my position which you describe above logically leads to consequences which are far more absurd, which it does, then you should reject or at least revise the premise or premises which lead there. — S
