Re: Global Warming

wow, I was not expecting MT would ban you. I’ll miss your posts. When in form you are one of the most brilliant folks around, so I hope you come back at some point. Admittedly, although I did think you were a touch John McEnroeish on that issue - that you initially went in too hard - as a government...

Re: Global Warming

Dan seems to be OK - I've seen him post on a non-philosophy forum not very long ago.
His heart condition has not knocked him off this mortal coil as yet.

Re: Dependent Origination

If two things cannot be in the same place at the same time, how then does the mind and body exist in the same place at the same time as you said earlier in this thread? There is no category difference between the mind and anything else. Wholes are always emergent properties. There is the flow of th...

Re: Where Buddhism/existentialism overlap

I can't help but think this quote applies here on this thread.

Nietzsche on Poets
"They are also not pure enough for me: they all muddle their water that it may seem deep"
"Verily, their spirit itself is the peacock of peacocks, and a sea of vanity!"

Re: If you were about to die....

Understand your limitations, but never accept them
Not a bad motto, though learned laziness seems to get in the way for me. Accepting them is a good excuse for laziness.

Hi Pye, I agree with your post. This post is just some half baked nit picking for something to do. Ambiguity: not this (alone); not that (alone); neither and both. Self And Other. World outside; world inside, etc. With all that mutually canceling, mutually reinforcing ambiguity, the math would add u...

Re: Contradiction in the Law of Identity

I've never found much use for it. I kind of detest it as it makes one think there is some actual deep meaning to it, but there isn't so it always seems like I have never groked it properly.
