My birthday today

Postby Ecmandu » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:36 pm

Someone flashed a peace sign at me and it deeply unsettled me as someone with no theory of mind...

Like saying "it's a great day!"

So, I solved it like an equation... a peace sign to me now means, "more peace, more joy, more love, better communication"

Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

:occasion-birthday:

My birthday is the 21st of December. So, our birthdays are temporally not far away from each other. We are both born under the sign of Sagittarius <♐>. :D

Happy Belated Birthday EC! :occasion-gift:
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!

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.

Happy Birthday from:

    It’s not that truth itself is being eroded per se, it’s that fragmental falsification appears to be increasing.
    (Anomaly654 - 2017)

    But the point remains that you can't get at that meaning before grasping the surface meaning
    - which is to say there is always meaning.

    (gib - 2017)

    Mind is an ever changing dimension that is bound to reality, logic and emotion.

    So what nice thing did you buy your Mama? Or more importantly, what did you do for her on her day?

    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.
