If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

:lol: That frog and comment was meant in the universal sense, FC, it wasn't directed towards you. I saw him and I liked him and I put words in his mouth. No worries.

If anything, I can relate to it greatly. :P

I see it as a sort of projection/perception loop. What is exactly going on when we perceive things? The eye needs "something" in order to see, but when it tries to turn on itself it tends to see itself in everything. It becomes self-referential. I don't know how else to explain it.

That is one of the reasons why there must be philosophy.

My Saltus Teutoburgiensis is a very nice place. But it isn't the best one, is it?

I wonder, was Chiron teaching Achilles archery here or was he teaching him a deeper lesson - when not to use the weapon?

Is that the best place on Earth for you? Or is a place named "Mithus" the best place on Earth for you, Mithus? :)
