There are no isolated events

Postby Berkley Babes » Tue Oct 13, 2020 11:22 am

Logic is just guesswork. If then this, then that, is a really big IF.

How many times has a good event with a good conclusion eventually turned bad by the next associated happening. And the reverse, bad to good.

If we blame people, they can blame people and there is no end to the blame. Blame Cavemen. Blame ocean goo.

Logic is conditional, that big if assumption, making conditional statements that aim at truth. But conditions require an isolated event to examine and apply truth to. Also, conditions change, so therefore (using logic here) truth changes.

Everything is connected.

I suppose were recognize markers that signify the difference between events, but those markers are categorically an illusion, a classification magic act.

The end is the begining.

If you think of a square, does it have 4 corners?

I can think of it that way, yes, but I can also think of it on the atomic level. Things passing through it, by it. I can picture sitting on it like a chair, but also putting a plate on it like a table. Depends on how you look at it. Those corners are also hard, but hardness is a concept in my mind, and I can't presently know if it is hard outside of that.

It's a little like saying you and I breathe the same air, so whose air does it belong to? There is no real gap between us.

You seem to be speaking truths.
However, i have little to add.
Everything is connected. Conditions change.

I wrote elsewhere that energy is changeness.
All of reality is moving and vibrating.
it's busy and hard at work.

Are you saying that when you think of a square, it might not have 4 corners?

yeah, sure, even the definition of what a square is can change. Who knows, corners may go extinct.

Also when we think of Santa Clause everyone knows the color of his suit.

Also, a square is nothing, by distinction, without reference to other shapes. The square needs the triangle, the circle, ect. So what of the numbers of those corners involved in providing the contrast?

What happens in the square is not unaffected by what is outside the square.

Also, an effect is a cause, which was my op.
