  • What is the meaning of life?

    Best answer: Life as such has no meaning...... it acquires a meaning when it creates self-awareness and this meaning differs from one to another as every self is unique.

    Best answer: Life as such has no meaning...... it acquires a meaning when it creates self-awareness and this meaning differs from one to another as every self is unique.
    In my own case, I find a simple peaceful life to be meaningful enough. Aiming at high ambition merely fills our life with exciting anticipation to start with but soon to become the source of concern, worry and labour, and finally even if achieved, it would merely be something that gives self-satisfaction for the time being and boosts the ego, but ultimately proves to be worth little in the grand context of this vast universe of which we are but a minuscule part only.

  • If evil didn't exist than how can we define good?

    I asked a similar question the other day and people on YA didn't seem to get what I was getting at. I mean cold is the absence of heat. But what if in an alternate reality cold didn't exist at all for the sake of argument. Then how could we or at least re-defined heat? That's my point with evil and... show more

How can one exist without the other?

  • Are youth and childhood just illusions?

    Best answer: No. They are wonderful yet fleeting times of our lives.

  • Do you prefer a world with finite possibilities or with infinite ones?

    Best answer: Aside from the fact that we cannot know if there are truly infinite possibilities or not, we couldn't possibly make use of infinite possibilities, nor even a fairly large set of them. Therefore I'll settle for finite ones as long as there are enough to satisfy my needs, which there definitely are. Example:... show more

Therefore I'll settle for finite ones as long as there are enough to satisfy my needs, which there definitely are. Example: I love listening to music and drinking good wine. There's definitely a finite amount of both, but far more than I could ever experience or even become aware of. Life is too short for that.

  • Philosophy behind human existence?

    Best answer: "Nature" is not a well-defined term, even at the level of physics; e.g., "Energy" is not defined as an understood thing. "Human" may include "God's Creature as soul-field" (cf Professor Amit Goswami's "The Physics of the Soul"). So, inasmuch as neither term... show more
    Best answer: "Nature" is not a well-defined term, even at the level of physics; e.g., "Energy" is not defined as an understood thing.
    "Human" may include "God's Creature as soul-field" (cf Professor Amit Goswami's "The Physics of the Soul").

    So, inasmuch as neither term is well-defined ("nature" as assumptive; "human" as reductive by assumptive atomists), the notion of being of something is comparatively meaningless in terms of "true-false" Boolean logic, as each of the two terms is not reducible to a binary (T/F) value, but rather both terms ("input values") are indeterminate (so-called "Three-valued logic, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-valu... shows how even three values (including a "maybe")) leads to a comparatively "astronomical" number (~ 20,000) of operators.

    Thus the statement seemingly assumes "Nature" to be physical universe, "we" to be products of the physical universe, and therefore the seemingly-valid conclusion "we cannot exist apart from Nature." Even a thinker such as A. N. Whitehead developed a coherent philosophy focused on universal processes which reaches "God-beingness" (aka "philosophy of organism").

    Related: "Process and Reality" by Whitehead; "The Path of the Higher Self;" "Return to the One: Plotinus's Guide to God-Realization."

    Best answer: Every society evolves basic rules of conduct. There may not be ten rules but there would be enough for that society. They are the basic morality that enables people to live together in safe, sustainable communities. They all include things like not killing each other for no reason and not stealing but other ideas may be specific to the culture in question. They are about forming cohesive communities and minimising rifts within those communities.
    Every country has laws. Laws are embodiments of the rules of that society in circumstances where social sanction and mutual respect fail to ensure compliance with acceptable conduct.
