    What is your ideal death?

    The death is the unimportant and uninteresting part. What's important is what happens after death. The best choice is to rot, wrapped perhaps in a light linen, worms wriggling through decomposing organs, beetles nibbling on putrid flesh, soft with the moisture of earth. -TI

    Moby Dick Discussion

    I finished the book about a year ago, now. I remember reading that initial bit (the sleep paralysis) but didn't think much of it at the time (probably because it was early on in the book and I wasn't quite into it, yet). I think your take on that is good - it certainly does seem like a...

    Is trying drugs worth it

    Logged in to +1 this. In my (admittedly limited) experience - I'm not that old - there are costs and benefits to most drugs (barring the really awful ones like heroin or crack or who knows what other garbage people produce), and really, anyone who is trying to tell you that a particular drug...

    Natural selection and the need to investigate complementary approaches

    You seem to be mistaking evolution for natural selection. This is a problem. Think of it this way: Evolution is a process that happens, natural selection is one (of many) mechanisms that drive it. So, it's incorrect to assume something like what Sir Eus Lee is suggesting in the context of...

    New IQ test which also tests logical, numerical and spatial reasoning

    I got 122. I think I understood the clock questions, although at first I thought it was a trick question (or at least poorly worded) given that if you flipped the whole clock upside-down it'd still be the same time. Does anyone know the answers to 24, 26, 27, and 29? Those were the boxed...

    Sam Harris's proposal of making morality scientific

    What do you mean by you "value" 1+1=3? Maybe we're misunderstanding what each other means when we say "value". All I was trying to say is that, when comparing logical conclusions, we should place a higher value on the logic that produces a less stupid result. In your example, 1+1=2 is valued...

    Sam Harris's proposal of making morality scientific

    I'm not adopting the position that morality should be based purely on science, I'm questioning it. I also just happen to be questioning the assumption that morality should be based purely on our emotions, or that there is even a direct relationship between the two. I guess I'm asking what...

    Sam Harris's proposal of making morality scientific

    So you're saying that without a value system, no decisions can be made. I don't buy it. I can easily think of situations in which I can make a decision without feeling any sort of emotion at all, and simply using reason and logic to come to a conclusion.

    You've still failed to address the first point adequately, as that thread talks about how emotion influences our actions... still nothing on morality, in other words what ought to be done.

    Moby Dick Discussion

    OK that's cool, but I'm asking why NOW is it popular? Are you just saying that when it was studied again in the 20th century it hit on some sort of controversy that it didn't hit on directly after its release?

    Sam Harris's proposal of making morality scientific

    It seems to me that his argument is founded on two general ideas: 1. There is a biological context to morality, if we understand morality to be a subset or collection of emotions. 2. Because we don't yet understand morality in full, we can gather information not only through technological...

    Well... I had a whole post typed up... then I guess my browser wanted to go back and I lost everything. In summary: - I've read up to where Ishmael meets the quaker captains. I think Melville's commentary on Christianity is bold, and is a major talking point. - I enjoy Melville's style...

    Gonna have to side with Lot on this one... If someone killed themselves each time it was suggested on the internet, we would all be dead. If someone is suicidal and browsing forums, they're bound to find shit that's way more fucked up than someone telling them to kill themselves. If they're...

    Some notes on marijuana & dreaming

    I think you may be making this more complicated than it needs to be, although it is cool you've thought about it so much. consider that dreaming is generally thought to occur during REM sleep. those that smoke week on a regular basis (and thus don't get the "high" as much) will tend to go to...

    Let's read by chapter rather than page length, alright guys? People's copies seem to be pretty variable and it'd be easier if either everyone had the same copy (which they don't) or if we read by chapter. I don't have my copy yet... but going to the library now to pick it up. I say we try to...

    The thread creator would need to add a poll post-submission, which I don't think is possible. Plus it'd only be a one-time poll. We just need people to comment here, maybe we can sort out a new thread in the meantime or after we actually choose a book. A mod's assistance would probably be...

    Generation Y should calm down a bit

    Couldn't we just wait until they're too feeble to care for themselves, and rather than pay to keep care of them with money they don't have, use them as fertilizer? Y'know, reduce eutrophication from farm runoff. Or perhaps just skip that and go straight to soylent green!

    I take probably a fairly strange stance. I don't think you (scientist) have any moral obligation at all to serve to greater good of humanity. That is to say, I don't feel as though it is your duty to present a cure to the world if you don't want to; you haven't given the people the disease...

    Ti-Ne hypocrisy of language

    I think a lot of it boils down to the intended audience, and the specific reader.

For the author, each section has to be written in...
