    Best answer: have you any idea at all what kind of world it would be today if you did? - cos I dont

    the ONLY thing I know is that it would be a hellova lot different from the one we got

    For all I know the "new" one could be a hellova lot worse

    Just think - millions died as a result of what hitler did - if he had not existed THEY and all their descendants would be alive today

    Those scientists who escaped from hitler to build the atom bomb would have stayed in europe

    Maybe one of the descendants could have built the atom bombs in europe- Stalin invades europe and captures them THEN the whole world becomes communist. OR a nuclear war breaks out and kills more than hitler did

    Thats the problem with what ifs - change one thing and nobody has a clue how that would affect the future from that point. ALL we know is what DID happened, ,after that change ANYTHING could happen
    could be that one of those desc

  • Is it better to be selfish or selfless?

  • "Do what you enjoy, and enjoy what you do" defines my work philosophy,. which is a positive feedback loop. Do you think it is practical ?

    Best answer: Yes, but one should be aware that to enjoy what you are doing one must be proficient at it and THAT takes time. The first two years of any (worthwhile) job are tough, in my opinion. Even if you are basically doing what you enjoy. If you find yourself employed doing something that you don't particularly enjoy,... show more
    Best answer: Yes, but one should be aware that to enjoy what you are doing one must be proficient at it and THAT takes time. The first two years of any (worthwhile) job are tough, in my opinion. Even if you are basically doing what you enjoy.

    If you find yourself employed doing something that you don't particularly enjoy, after two years or so you may find that you no longer dislike it. You may have learned to love whatever it is you are doing. THAT is the key.

    Good luck!

  • Does accepting the meaninglessness of life free you from existential angst, and allow you to begin to actually enjoy it?

    Best answer: It's not that life is meaningless, it's that there's no meaning that's separate from yourself. People are always looking for some independently-existing meaning. When you really understand that that doesn't exist, that "man is the measure of all things", then you understand that... show more
    Best answer: It's not that life is meaningless, it's that there's no meaning that's separate from yourself. People are always looking for some independently-existing meaning. When you really understand that that doesn't exist, that "man is the measure of all things", then you understand that you're free, that you're not bound by the beliefs and expectations and judgments of your "tribe" and of the significant others in your life.

  • Defeat life before life defeats you, agree?

    Best answer: No, you don't defeat life. God gave us life for a purpose. Find that purpose and live it. (Ecclesiastes 12:13; John 17:3) You defeat those aspects of life - badness, wickedness, etc. that God disapproves of and which will defeat you if you allow them to continue.

  • Do we truly have the writings of Plato? What if he really didn't write the Republic & it's all just a myth?

    Best answer: Your question is especially one of epistemology. "Plato" distinguished between "opinion" (Pistis) based on 5-sense impressions (Eikasia) and "knowledge" (Dianoia as maths; Noesis as Soul-realized Ideas). To have "True" knowledge, Plato states that the soul needs to exercise... show more
    Best answer: Your question is especially one of epistemology. "Plato" distinguished between "opinion" (Pistis) based on 5-sense impressions (Eikasia) and "knowledge" (Dianoia as maths; Noesis as Soul-realized Ideas).

    To have "True" knowledge, Plato states that the soul needs to exercise "recollection" of Forms and Ideas. Plotinus denoted this to be "One Mind Soul"-Realization of the One Mind's Ideas, "God's thoughts passing to man," "angels."

    Related: "Return to the One: Plotinus's Guide to God-Realization;" "Light Is a Living Spirit;" "Memories of Heaven: Children's Astounding Recollections of the Time before They Came to Earth;" "The Path of the Higher Self."
