Re: Thread recovery

That's too bad, Dan. I consider your posts to among the best offered here. Ah well, I'm not one to talk - I've been losing interest for a long time, and I now post rarely. I got locked out of my own board by a profile error about a month back, and I didn't even care.

Re: blah

If your mouth is moving or your fingers are typing, you are validating A=A. It isn't possible to think, express, or argue any concept without acknowledging it, unconsciously or otherwise.

Re: Non Plus Ultra thingy

IQ is of little importance, except that is perhaps a prerequiste to true insight. In order to understand anything deeply, you need the raw intelligence to face the task - but it is simply a foot in the door and nothing more. IQ in and of itself has little (if anything) to do with quality of thought....

Re: Quantum mechanics and David's Ultimate Reality

<t>Personally, I am thinking about doing a 'play-by-play' commentary, if I can find the time, and I can assure you that I will award my own points to whomever I feel has legitimately earned them.

Re: Quantum mechanics and David's Ultimate Reality

It ought to be good reading. If I had the time, I'd like to debate one of the QRS myself. I may have to find the time, assuming that one of them wished to participate.

Re: Modifying significant concepts to suit women

Bollocks. If anything, it shows that the society is historically male-oriented in its perceptions. This is not a feminist statement, it is a simple historical fact.

Bird, No, you're not in any trouble. :-) You're obviously a very spiritual person by nature. The left-brain or 'feminine' penchant for direct intuitive experience has served you well, it seems.

Re: ---

Basically, I'd agree, but ideally, pantheism would never be called 'pantheism,' because without the fall into religion, the term 'theism' would never have been meaningful to begin with. Nature would be Nature, and that would be spiritually sufficient.
