    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    How is Nietzsche an epitome of suicide? He was all for life-affirmation and shitz.

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    Yes, otherwise there wouldn't be much point to Buddhism and its practices. Buddhism isn't necessarily about removing possibility of all forms of suffering in all senses permanently. It is about removing a deeper form of existential suffering. Even Arhats after Nirvana would have "residues"...

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    Arhats who acheive Nirvana manages to find a way in between being a full-fledged sentient self and a rock - they manage to become a sentient rock, so to say, having sentience, but being impersonal --- more like a rock than a human. That is not to say they would lose personality and emotions...

    There is no 'I'

    The sense of being an ego - a subject of experience - should be a priori, yes, because it's hard to see how that can be derived from sense-data whether you come accross the gaze of other people or not. Rather the root of this sense and idea is probably an intrinsic predisposition in our...

    There is no 'I'

    There is a difficulty in thinking in terms of "I" as the unmanifest looker that look towards experiences. The difficulty becomes clearer when we ask what does it exactly means to "look", is the "I" looking at "experiences" (if if the experiences are already happening, what is the need of looking...

    Ontogeny recapitulates cosmogony?

    The person can be reduced to a story imputed over interconnected impersonal elements. But yes, we can go towards a more "participatory sort of realism"

    Binary logic propositions applied to non-atomic elements

    Neither do I see binary logic here nor do I see non-atomic propositions. Your examples seems to be either parital ("i am right" - about what?) to exactly translate into a complete proposition to evaluate its atomicity or quite atomic "God exists". Further more none of your posts has to do...

    What is good?

    Last I heard, it has lack of empirical support. There are updated versions of these kind of things. But I don't really like these kind of categorizations all too much. Lot of these categorizations don't really seemed principled or rigorous, rather something intuitive made up classes which may or...

    The single flaw with hard determinism

    It was probably me; back in the days, I started a brute-force generative algorithm and forgot to shut it off.

    The single flaw with hard determinism

    Just because you can consider temporality as a spatial block doesn't mean time is metaphysically a spatial block. If change is real, time is dynamic - determinism only implies that all the change are completely determined to be exactly as it occurs, by prior causes. That's not necessarily...

    My Theory of Everything, Expressed in Layman's Terms

    Not 'seeing' thoughts, doesn't mean not 'knowing' them. When you deliberately conceptualize a red balloon you should also 'know' that you are thinking of a red balloon whether you 'see' or 'not'. There is still something it is like to have a thought - even when it is not visual, auditory...

    My Theory of Everything, Expressed in Layman's Terms

    I never denied that whatever appears do appear at some level. But, whether it's aprioric forms, or forms influenced by empirical signals, the point is that they make things appear in a certain way - potentially biased by the forms. The forms can change how the appearances are comprehended by...
