Faustian Filosofy

This is the main board for discussing philosophy - formal, informal and in between.

Faustian Filosofy

Postby Dan~ » Sat Jun 20, 2020 9:15 pm

We experience reality through a combination of senses.

Language is a form of information.
Information can be fabricated, created, destroyed.

Knowledge comes from experiences, and language.

Philosophers utilize knowledge and language more than the lay person.
Some people greatly favor language.

Language is symbols associated with meanings.

Language exists in part as induction.

Without experiences, language is incomplete.

An experienced person grasps words differently than a newb.

Philosophical error is a mistake in attaching a meaning to a word.

That dog is purple, no it's not.
Proper word induction to dog color is brown or white or grey etc. not purple.
This doesn't mean a purple dog is impossible,
but without a hair stylist, it is a non existent possibility.

Good atheism is where you don't over step your philosophical boundries
by making claims about gods that are invisible.
This doesn't mean ya all up and hate christians, for example.
It just descends from agnosticism.
"I can't know right now, therefor I don't believe right now."

If a god appeared to faust and asked him to kill a baby,
what would he do?
Well, if it is a god, it doesn't need a dead baby.
It's like a fat man demanding more food, even though he already has too much.
Also, dead babies are less responsive than live babies.
So, if god doesn't make sense, morally,
then god shouldn't be followed, even if he exists somewhere hidden in a pocket of nebula.

Christians believe that might is right.
That is why they worship the creator of their flood,
which supposedly killed almost everyone and everything.

More to come, later.

I always say that people do for god is what they’d want to be done to them if they were god:

Bowing, kneeling, sacrificing, praying, paying alms, going to a temple (or church or synagogue), spreading the word of how great god is! in their honor...

People are sick in the head!

And hypocrites! God, as they define god, needs NOTHING from us!

When religion doesn't make sense, it becomes immoral.

There is knowledge, but how we interact with that knowledge, is bound to a perspective.
It's like being skillful with a pen or a pencil.
Except, in good philosophy, it is skillful use of perspective.

Skill is different than trueness, but skillfulness is shrewd.

The job of a good philosopher is to do well with thoughts and ideas.
This requires a special approach.
The approach is a form of perspective.

Now the next point, what is the best possible experience?
What is the best possible perspective.
Not the best in the whole world,
but the best you are personally capable of?

It's similar to pragmatism, but pragmatism is like, most convenient.
Best-possible, is a measurement of value.
Most-right, is a measurement of value, too, but the meaning is kinda different.
Most-true, misses the mark.
Why bother with something because it is true, rather than because it is useful?
So many things are already true.

Why did faust say that minimalism is good?

Belief about an ultimate God figure, is maximal.
It's the biggest idea around.

If we are poor, intellectually, then we shouldn't spend as much.

Conserving thought.

That is what minimalism can be about.

What is practical logic?
Being logical, in a way that suits each situation.
Similar to pragmatism.
Mental progression and mental subsistence.
The human mind has needs.
If you know what those are, it is important knowledge to know that.

The Jews talk about the “narrow path”. The wide path is not only the real deal, it’s the hardest path to take!

Philosophical confusion:

Use someone else's definitions of terms.

A reasonable mind can invent new words any time and give them a meaning.

Each unique individual has their own personalized meanings for words.

It is impossible to communicate with someone unless some common ground exists.

Personal experience is entirely different than words.
Learning new words does nothing.
Nothing at all.
The meaning and insight of personal experiences,
is real knowledge.
Words draw meanings from the human individual database.

Communication draws from mutual understanding.
Imagination is like a simulation.
You can learn from it.
But it is a facility of the mind.

More on this later.

Philosophical confusion: part2:

Confusion results in people taking words, and not treating them for what they are.
They are only words.
But words lead the mind to other words.
We spend hours for years, listening to words, and expressing words.
But they are simply a set of names.
Names are symbolic, not literal.
Names are an essence of abstraction.

Words are meant to be outgrown.
Words are meant to be customized.
The rest of consciousness is important too.
You can't just focus on only one aspect of the psyche.

We are inside our consciousness.
We are not outside in the world doing things.
Nature is automatic.
