a personal collective

Category: Philosophy (page 1 of 2)

Philosophy and all the things that we know we should talk about and we know how to talk about… while knowing essentially we don’t know what we are talking about — and we acknowledge that too.

the entirety argument

The entirety argument states that there is got to be more more to it than this. This is not everything that there is to it. What's more, is something that is not, by definition. When we say it is not, that is to say it is not "here" and not that it is not in existence. But where is it, then? The entirety argument concludes that it "is" and surely there is more to it than this and that this is not all that there is to it.

post hoc

propter hoc

Tabula rasa

There is going to be so much writing and impressions… that at some points the slate will revert become blank again: A shiny luminescent slate that reflects all things.

form

substance

substance

essence

ideas

forms

idea

Essentially everything can be reduced to an idea.

is this me?

this collection.

on pop culture

i think therefore i am

how does that feel?

context

subject/context reversed:

  • hyperlink is link
  • meta-data is data
  • message is the medium

 

ethic and aesthetic

some movie…

it’s a copy of a copy of a copy: sounds like a good definition of crap. In other words it’s like an illusion of an illusion (rather than illusion of reality). Why do I make myself watch it because I think it will becoming the fabric of our consciousness? Interestingly, this post too become a self-referencing garbage.

eternity

The concept of eternity is important because it can occur within our finite lifetime.

philosophy of philosophy

snow is white is still true, and podium is for standing, and socrates is for snub-nosing, and alexander is for student of student of socrates, and a = a and 2+2=4 is for declaring true self-evidently … and “what is philosophy for?” you ask?

this state of affairs

This state of affairs seems to press that having an inadequate and incomplete reality with a perfect idea of it is advantageous to having nothing and a mere perfect idea. The former is much closer to its perfect reality form than the latter.

causality

It’s caused by the way it is, not because of the way it is, but because of the cause. So the cause takes precedence.

remember

one thing and dis-remember everything else.

traces of twriling tinkers

place the procedure in the context of your life.

collect and archive various categories.

develop faculties in charge of nature.

disremember the negatives,

purge.

excuse. exert. examine. eliminate.

encapsulate expectations.

you see the twirling patterns? do you hear the rhythmic motions?

the nomadic creatures fly from place to place.

drinking tea with the mountain shepherds.

offering solutions and adjustment.

trading objects and stories.

before catching the next wind…

I blog

therefore I am.

Reductionism

The school of thought that promotes reducing things down to common forms. Reductionists tend to like ideas like category, essence, form, idea. This school of people oppose productionists.

Productionism: Seeing special, particular, peculiar, and distinguishing features of particulars, peculiars, distinquished and personalized. Productionists see everything differently and try to see things differently. The focus on everything is in a way narrowed to only the immediate and practical and at hand. The school undermines understanding and relation of everything to everything to the relationship of the everything and the individual.

volition

The idea that every event is perceived or it goes unnoticed. That every such event must have been previously conceived.

affirmation

It’s a struggle to recognize all things, and reconcile everything. To make a decision and decide at every moment. And still leave room for hope and change. It gets quite tiring.

Only if there was such thing as eternity… surely it would made things easy.

rewrite

rewriting is better that writing. but writing is more fun.
