Re: Criticism

What philosophers call the absolute, the eternal being, the ground of the world, what the religions call God, this we call, on the basis of our epistemological studies: the idea. Everything in the world that does not appear directly as idea will still ultimately be recognized as going forth from th...

Re: Entanglement etc. Materialism vs. Idealism

There aren't some with greater problems than others. How do you justify such a statement? Do you agree that different metaphysics struggle with different problems? If so, what metric do you use to claim that these different problems in their totality (per metaphysic) are all of the same size? That'...

Re: Xenobot ( first living robots ) question (help)

Observation 1: Just bouncing around other peoples ideas without having an informed opinion yourself gets you in exactly this kind of trouble :D Observation 2: Either they're not robots, and the statment is false. Or they are robots, and the claim that they are the first living robots is false. The a...

Re: Criticism

Fractals are arguably one my favorite source for metaphors. But in my experience they are too strong for the mind of today. They act like crack for the intellect. They are too rich and the intellect becomes overly intoxicated - that is, it tries to build theories instead of using them as images for...

Re: Criticism

The Mandelbrot fractal is the boundary between the areas where the iterations diverge and where they converge. All the extraordinary complexity emerges in the interplay of the two poles. Or maybe this quote only points at an (abstract) example to illustrate complex emergence from the interplay of p...

Re: Criticism

Does this ocean of living meaning have Structure? Because if it does, I have a hard time envisoning this structure without it bringing (due to the Nature of Structure) various modes of dualities. (Or maybe Polarities is a better word) But then again, maybe my question is of the same nature as "...
