    Best answer: Why do philosophers confuse themselves and the world ?

    To join-in with the spirit of your question* R, it could be-to-do-with 2 things
    (at least)...
    1. Rampant philosophical subjectivity and relativity, now joined with "historicism" - which as some of you may know is written philosophy which treats history as some-sort-of-game and Not truth, nor as best that we can report such true historical situations.^
    And its worth noting here that NOT JUST North American philosophy but
    other western academic philosophy is STILL infected with the subjective
    and relative and historic viruses. I mean those fictional and usually wrote
    learned philosophy half-truths which purport and pass-for "academic study.
    "hegelian-ism" is still laughably taught, along with half-lies of those (C.Paglia
    ....passive-worm-social-philosophers well known as Husserl and Heidegger).
    And that's just for "starters" (see also logic philosophers who understand
    the unproved, uncritical numbers-from-nowhere, see Y.t. Zhang and all)

    2. See also the social philosophical work of Camille Paglia, who recently
    has "broken cover" (=whistle-blown in academia) stating the obvious
    highly confusing and startling confession that passive-worm-philosopher
    teachers have been responsible FOR IMPLYING THAT MEN HAVE BEEN
    have been responsible for degrading and controlling females, in colleges
    and in the greater world too.
    And that we all should thus blame Men generally if we want to change
    things-for-the-better.
    This is the confusion-philosophic and real- which this respected scholastic
    writer has revealed and it could be "telling" not just for Gender-and-social
    science, but for philosophy in general.
    For if you believe that philosophy as taught in our western schools and
    our western colleges is....critically and rationally truthful or reasonable
    then you ought to really "think again".
    It is nothing-of-the-sort....even high level university philosophy is just
    an excuse for some historical teaching, usually of half-facts and
    fairy-land confused, historical half-theories.
    And this is why it MUST be Insisted-yes insisted- that few of such
    teachers can even spell the likes of..."skeptical", "critical" or even
    "bad subjective,relativistic and inbred, rote philosophy" !


    * such as pinpointed,.... apparent "confused philosophers" and a resultant, "(confused) world".

    ^ a classic case is made where non-critical philosophers quietly but
    knowingly try-to-brainwash us with false facts like the real intentions of
    the European Renaissance writers (was) to find and write about rational
    critical philosophy.That THEY enlightened us then, and since.
    Of course they didn't....the Enlightenment-movement-writers
    did, to their great credit.

  • The meaning of life?

    Best answer: Birth and death are the bookends of our lives. Living towards death in time gives one’s life a direction and framework. Death does not teach anything. Life teaches everything.

    If we are what we are, it is life which gives it's meaning, and not death.

    The wise person thinks of nothing so little as death.

    When a wise person or philosopher thinks about death - it only makes him to think of ways to live fully immersed in the life that we have.

    We have so many years for happiness or a good life. There is nothing like "happy ending" for life. The way we live gives worth to life.

    Death is the road to final destination. Life is the travel. The soul is the guide.

    When the mind and death are transcended, man will have a new home: Light - the Light of the Beyond through wisdom. That is philosophy.

    Best answer: I view time as a static dimension, far more similar to space than we realise. My view is called eternalism, based on the B-theory of time. Many physicists support the B-theory, and Einstein himself was an eternalist, who believed in a "block universe" model, depicting the universe as a static 4D block of spacetime, containing all events past, present and future, rather than a 3D block of space that is constantly changing. The B-theory of time also gives a simpler and more elegant picture of special relativity, based on "spacetime slices".

    There is no reason to believe things like "motion" and "change" exist fundamentally, and are not just illusions that help our survival. The truth is, no one has ever directly observed change. They have simply observed something in the present moment, and compared it to a recent memory that also exists in the present moment. It is impossible to observe change directly as that would require existing in more than one moment simultaneously. And to experience only a single instant of time, is by definition not to experience time. We exist only in this instant, and cannot even be certain that there was a "past". The consistency of our memories is evidence that our memories are reliable, that is to say that the events depicted by our memories are the cause of our memories. But this doesn't mean that these events occurred in the "past", in the sense that humans imagine the concept of "past". It just means that these events exist in some form, and there is a causal connection between them and our present memories of them.

    What is the "speed" of time? Why is the universe 13.8 billion years old, and not some other age? Why hasn't time "finished" already? If time is discrete, what is the time taken for one moment to become the next moment? The question doesn't make sense, because in this case, measurements in time are defined by the quantity of "moments" that occurred. There is nothing to say the moments are temporal and occur "before" or "after" one another, merely that they are causally connected. A discrete time, analogous to a movie where motion is made up of static "frames", would imply the B-theory is true and that motion/change doesn't exist fundamentally. There would be no reason to think that reality itself is currently up to "this moment". The present moment is only special to us, because its where we happen to exist. We don't exist on Mars but Mars still exists. We don't exist in 1900 but 1900 still exists. We exist in 2017, on this day, at this second. And the person who exists in the next moment is almost identical to us. Almost.

    If change exists, time is continuous. But physicists say there is a smallest unit of time that makes sense. This is the Planck time (10^-43 seconds - the time taken for light to travel one Planck length). I am not sure this proves time is discrete, but what would it mean for time to be continuous when we cannot distinguish between two events that occur two closely together? And if time is a continuous medium that events occur within, and is not reduced to states or events, then what exactly is it? Does time still pass when there is no motion, no change, and no events?

    Best answer:   .
      Little god is lord as in Lord Abraham, Big God is same metaphoric hype of little god, as ideology of nothing more that scriptures that human species made,
      Human is the term for our species as Homo Sapient , almost as smart intellectually as a dolphin, but with more motors skills and abilities to create euphoria of deceptions such as gods like Zeus and Al-lah and Saint Nick and Brahma and Odin, and all those secondary messiahs, All books as scriptures and Sanskrit just tilted folklore of times that were and twisted around with magic and make-belief, to build fear and humility over persons that know better otherwise for realities that are valid without truths provided for.

      This Universe is for now a large spacial area to infinite voids in our timeline, Earth is merely a planet we named to live upon with this solar system, if you wanted so metaphysical conundrum or theory of existence or eternity versus infinity for the living versus the allusions of selfies, there is nowhere civil left amongst our selves as a species to refrain from deceptions of reality in order to impose beliefs that are falsities of our own design.

    Best answer: "Which ones do they save" isn't even an option.

    At the time, assessing the possibility that only so many can be saved and some can't be, doesn't even come into play. The only assessment the rescuers would be making is, what would be the quickest and safest way to get to each of the victims. In all probability, they would rescue whoever they could get to first, and then go after the next one - until the possibility of saving them is completely gone. For instance, if the current grabs one person and carries him downstream, there wouldn't be much they could do for that person if there were others who still need to be saved.

    In the event that this person is the last one or there is enough free personnel that someone could go after that person, then that would be the option to take at that time..
