He got people to respond to it.

Behind the mask is nothing; just an ideal, an idea, a hope. It is undying, impossible to hide. Anonymity isn't something you feign or pretend at, it's where your life takes you as you walk down a road you had no choice but to walk down. The mask isn't something to hide behind, nor a cover for a visage burned, but what the world forces you to wear to become their version of you.

Oh? as in say what?
Oh! as in I see?
Oh! as in I hurt?

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.

Oh, as in, that was a brilliant evening. I was quoting Emerson (or trying to) "Oh my brothers, God exists."

Your three were up there! :)

No problem. There is another seminar which I shall be attending this coming Saturday. Feel free to call me and we will set something up. It's called Procrastination.
Stephen King will be the guest speaker.
His opening statement will be "“You've got to go to Boston, and you've got to go there NOW!!”
lol


N.B.: This is not real, of course. :mrgreen:

Hmmm! Arc, I wonder... At what point does a lack of free-will become procrastination? Or, vice versa? :-k :)

Keep wondering. It so enhances one's life. :evilfun:

There is a point, when one experiences a lack of free-will, emotionally and mentally, where they "freeze up". It is at this point where procrastination comes into the picture -- unless one is able to transcend or plow through that "freezing" point.

Then it is a good thing to peddle back and try to reflect on what it was which caused that. There is always something which causes it and we might be quite surprised at the trigger.

Enjoy the wonder of it all...
