Re: Global Warming

Things do change, and significantly, outside of human influence. This does not negate the fact that humans have had, are having, and can continue to have an impact. You, Deebs, seem to be supporting the unconscious flow of nature, while I am supporting the conscious planning and wise intentional act...

Someone having a strong opinion about politics is the perfect place to start, not in the context of debating content but in the context of questioning the nature of the "I" that feels so strongly about this (and not that).
Sounds good. Basically change the topic to philosophy.

Re: Global Warming

Re: Why study philosophy?

Is anyone here good at explaining why we should care about philosophy to someone who knows nothing at all about it? No idea about enlightenment, metaphysics, ultimate reality, or anything like that? Start by discussing something that they are interested in. Don't get too heavy too quickly. I find t...

Re: Global Warming

Deebs, good job at totally ignoring the fires, and reclassifying the pattern of worse conditions as "one event" I didn't bother to update to include Katia, Jose, or Maria, but if you want an actual single marking event, seems like we've really done it this time: https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevorna...

Re: Statement about Solway and Trump

Trump is a disaster, and Kevin's support of him makes me wonder if Kevin has gone mad. The notion that Trump will drive out the feminine does not fly with me because I see precious little about Trump that this forum would call masculine. I see greed, self-absorption. and an undisciplined temperament.

OK I will revamp 11. There is infinite energy propelling all things. I think you are creating a false dichotomy. You are proposing that there is an "infinite energy" that is separate from all things, which somehow still leaves room for all things. Things and energy are ultimately one, and all that ...

Re: Consciousness Only vs. Causality

Diebert, would you please explain your perspective more fully, as I don't see how anything, save possibly the Absolute itself, is uncaused. Even the Absolute could possibly be argued to be self caused, thereby not uncaused.

Re: Death of Philosophy

Not only is there nothing that is True behind the scenes, there is no lower-case truth that we can all agree on. And it should be that way. No, yes but irrelevant, and no. There is Truth behind the scenes, in front of the scenes, in the scenes. The scenes are Truth. Lower case truth does not requir...

Re: An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment?

Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-incurred immaturity. Very close, but I can't completely agree. Man's immaturity is not self-incurred, but caused by preceding factors. Although there have been individual exceptions, mankind has not ever been a mature species. Immaturity is the inabili...

Urizen, I think that we are saying basically the same thing, but using different language. I just want to clear up some semantics to make sure.

Re: What is spirituality?

Spirituality is the knowledge of the Absolute, and a method of realising and integrating this knowledge, which is religion. I'd hardly call spirituality knowledge or religion. Actually, religion can be the furthest thing from spirituality. Spirituality is the experience of the Absolute. Can religio...
