Logic is applied to attain fulfillment. The desire for fulfillment comes first, then the use of logic. Without a desire, there would be no use or need for any action

and that tool has varying levels of productivity....which correlates with how objective it is. my point

Learn how to read the entire post next time:
Duality wrote:logic is also often pragmatic, but the pragmatism does not contribute additional meaning and purpose to our perceptions, just as things like sensations do not

Duality wrote: Logic derives from consciousness regardless of it's level of objectivity/subjectivity.

that's irrelevant

its relevant because desire comes first. Logic is a tool, not a source. And does not have an immediate objective meaning in itself

Duality wrote:False foundation is also bogus claim. It is not anymore false than any other perception you choose to apply- including the "bashing down of every foundation besides the one that is *me".

it's common sense. christianity, for instance, is a very false foundation. which is why much of neitzsche's work goes absolutely nowhere...because he's so focused on refuting that false foundation that he leavs no room to say anything (i just tried reading the antichrist. i cant. i think i'll make a thread refuting a lot of it's bullshit)

other than: what is more in this world, to you, than yourself?

What does Christianity have to do with the concept of existentialism? Learn how to apply some basic fuckin logic to an argument and maybe read some Dostoyevsky and Kierkegaard then get back to me.

maybe some william blake too. may help you learn some verse along the way

"Logic is applied to attain fulfillment. The desire for fulfillment comes first, then the use of logic. Without a desire, there would be no use or need for any action"



The weight of unfulfilled desire used to overcome the power of premature enlightenment. The price for that, beyond conception.
