Ambition Alley

Postby WendyDarling » Tue May 30, 2017 8:52 am

Should ambition be immortalized? I mean is it virtuous enough to merit future significance in general? JSS brought up the carry over of a person's spirit into immortality if this ambition becomes a tool used by humanity...here http://ilovephilosophy.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=192878#p2666276. Who invented fire? The wheel? Who all invented the original tools of importance and has anything been lost by their anonymity?

More later.

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Cutting folks for sport is a reality for the poor in spirit. I myself only cut the poor in spirit on Tues., Thurs., and every other Sat.

Nothing has been lost. The spirit is what matters, what exists.
JSS' point was very sharp.

The greatest honor for a creator is to have his creation recognized as an autonomous phenomenon.

That was going to be my point that only when we relish a creation through the significance of its named creator, that the spirit of the creation becomes distorted by the association, less pure not more pure.

I'm wondering, who's spirit is great, the creator's, the creation, the intelligence of humanity for recognizing an improved tool? :-k I ponder this in regards to the creations of destruction.
