    The Random Thoughts Thread

    You're pretty funny. Just to be clear, I am not hitting on you or anything like that. For one, you are probably half my age. secondly, I have a feeling you are a guy and I am a guy and so, well, I'm straight.

    Well, I don't know if I thought about it that way, but, true. There should always be something to direct our actions in philosophy IMO.

    What do you think substance is?

    Since the object cannot know the subject, the subject cannot know the object, hence, the subject cannot truly know the subject.

    what is human, thinking and experience

    Yeah, it's "the product of one's intentions or not" that I disagree with. That seems to infer an inherent motivation before the subjective interpretation of the object is established. The only way you could argue otherwise is if it was the feeling function that was motivating the thought of the...

    How do you know you are sane or insane

    Impossible to tell for the individual if the individual is sane or not. We are inherently biased towards believing ourselves. Because of that, no matter how many people tell you (not to be confused with who*) you are insane, you have no reason to believe them simply at their word. * = In rare...

    The Self, the Other, The Will, the Being, and God.

    I don't mind attracting people who are open to different things. Better than the people who don't think at all. I have basically just highly abstracted a bunch of concepts in this thread. From Jung to the bible to Sartre to Peterson to Godel. It's really just a little tiny bit original and that...

    what is human, thinking and experience

    So the assertion of "'thinking' should, in my view, be confined to the linking up of representations by means of a concept, where, in other words, an act of judgment prevails, whether such act be the product of one’s intentions or not." is just plain wrong. Thinking is NOT categorized by...

    Jung talks about himself because he knows himself. He categorized himself as someone who was "categorized by thinking."

    The Self, the Other, The Will, the Being, and God.

    Yes. This. It's complicated to explain, but let me try, and then @Kakariki can have another crack at me. It's like this... Being is much akin to the unconscious. It communicates to others what it's intentions are subliminally without consciousness. It is a bit "deeper" than the will because...

    I could have sworn I posted something here... In any case, yes, nothing new under the sun. In fact, we don't even know if there have been more advanced civilizations than us or not... Ofc, probably in a different way, but take the pyramids for example (and those still exist, never mind stuff...

    Can you talk more about the brain doing affect that is going on in the brain? I don't really see how that is affective. I think of the brain as a SSD, not a HDD.

    what is human, thinking and experience

    IMO, you are not asking the right questions because I don't think a lot of people know what exactly you are asking. What I would suggest is to look up things like neuroscience and consciousness theories.

    what is human, thinking and experience

    I think unless there is something really really strange in the universe, then no, I don't think anything can be truly isolated in the universe. I think I would think about it more like the universe actually being a vacuum in this case. Beyond that, I wouldn't have a guess.

    what is human, thinking and experience

    I don't think the mind and thinking are necessarily the same thing. As far as perspective and experience goes, you can't have one without the other IMO (unless you have some qualifying definitions of these things that you are not giving). As far as thinking and experience being different...

    Neuropsychological Testing.

    OK, so... Back on topic. I see that my VCI and PRI are around the same at ~110 and ~109 respectively. I think they determined this by my scaled scores. For VCI that would be 13 for Similarities and 11 for Vocabulary and for PRI that would be 13 for Matrix Reasoning* and 10 for Block Design...

    I guess what I am saying is that the material is what is the flesh and the immaterial is what comes from the spirit. There's always going to be stuff in the absence of stuff.

    What do you think substance is?

    I think there is substance, but I think it's much of a duality between it existing and it not existing. I think what actually exists is what we can think of as Evil and what doesn't actually exist, in other words, what we cannot characterize, as the will of God. I think a fissure is all there...
