  • Are animals conscious?

    If by chance this is all just a simulation that our “life” is or this a huge dream and there is nothing. Either way, are animals self aware? We are observing the universe as we are all one. Of course they feel emotions, but do they think beyond their animal life? Do they wonder similar to humans? Do they think... show more
    If by chance this is all just a simulation that our “life” is or this a huge dream and there is nothing. Either way, are animals self aware? We are observing the universe as we are all one. Of course they feel emotions, but do they think beyond their animal life? Do they wonder similar to humans? Do they think bout how us humans do things? (For example) Day and night? Do they expect the next day to repeat again? Or do they just randomly vision whatever happens? Do they know death is possible? Do you think they have a purpose here? Do they know if they feel “okay/normal” like any day?

  • Philosophical help needed?

    Anyone got any advice for somebody who feels like they don't know themselves? I don't have any specific interests or talents... I'm not good at anything... I'm still young but everyone one around me has their life on track. Or at least that's how it seems. Any advice?

  • Philosophy: What are higher problems than the problems of pain & pleasure & sympathy?

    Best answer: I think philosophy asks two questions - can't quite get my mind around whether or not these are the only two questions - you know, summaries of it all, but they'll sure do for a start, imo: 1) What is all this? and 2) How should we live? I think the first one is to be abandoned. We just don't know.... show more

I think the first one is to be abandoned. We just don't know. But the second one can be explored, and indeed does lead to pain and pleasure and sympathy. Specifically, how can we be happy and what role does engaging other people play? I think those questions are gold mines, with plenty of available gold if we're willing to dig.

  • Thoughts on the Uncertainty of the Past?

    This stems for the idea of “Last Thrursdayism”. It kind of bums me out (However I do accept it) to know that everything that happens in the past, could quite possibly be mere memories, facsimiles, fabricated in our minds.

    This stems for the idea of “Last Thrursdayism”. It kind of bums me out (However I do accept it) to know that everything that happens in the past, could quite possibly be mere memories, facsimiles, fabricated in our minds. VSauce on YouTube has an informative video on this topic titled “Did the Past Really Happen?” https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=O2jkV4BsN6... Under the same sky, I am unable to understand the concept of the present, as it eventually becomes the past, which can not be proven to be true. In some round-a-bout way this also kills René Descartes’ idea of “I think therefore I am”. Thought supposedly (As far as to our current understanding) in the present, and everything that is the present becomes the past. We also perceive the world as it was (Not how it is) as our bodies take time to receive, categorize, comprehend, and memorize information. In conclusion, I am certain that to our current scientific and philosophical understanding, we are unable to guarantee that our memories are valid, or even our own existence.

  • Is fate predetermined, and if so, can one manipulate predestination?

    “Thou art born for sorrow dwell in thee Thou art born for greatness shall achieve” How could predestination work? Suppose the universe itself is finite (Note: I am a finitist), and there truly are an infinite amount of things that can happen, say we can only do a hundredth of those things due to predestination,... show more
    “Thou art born for sorrow dwell in thee Thou art born for greatness shall achieve” How could predestination work? Suppose the universe itself is finite (Note: I am a finitist), and there truly are an infinite amount of things that can happen, say we can only do a hundredth of those things due to predestination, infinity divided by any number is still infinity. The “Law of Conservation of Energy” states, also, that nothing can be created from nothing, so if predestination were to exist (Think of this like a computer), wouldn’t there need to be some sort of storage medium for this information to physically reside until it is used? And if so, how could you store an infinite amount of information in a finite space? And if so, if you could achieve access to this storage space, could you manipulate predestination?

  • Philosophy: Is metaphysics still valid in your perspective?

    Best answer: Depends what you mean by metaphysics - to me, nothing unreal, no - no mind reading, or other magical thinking. However, emotion is real. As real as water. Tho not a cognitive thing, it is hugely impactful on our experience in life and should be studied at least as much as anything cogntiivie, imo.
