    The reason Philosophy makes your head hurt is because it causes you to think through questions. And the more you think things through, the more you learn about thinking. Stick with it, and train your mind to work as it should. Believe me, it s worth the effort. With that degree, and some management in grad school, I ve managed office services for a hospital, done purchasing and materials management, managed a Country Club, consulted with units of government, worked as an industrial engineer, consulted in health care and was a vice president of a major bank. All because I could understand patterns, trends and human nature. Stick with it. It's an exciting ride.

  • Can the majority ever be morally wrong?

    I would imagine modern atheists would ultimately have to conclude their own moral opinions incorrect by default if they went against the majority. What other authority would there be to determine all these things? I'm also wondering how we can condemn things in the past that had majority support, that future... show more

  • If soul can continue to exist without body, is it right to say that life exists after death too?

    Best answer: Defining "soul" as elective awareness of One Mind Soul--the One Ego, or God--the "soul-field" continues post-physicality inasmuch as she resonates with, has internalized, and individuated, such Energy-aspects of the One as Love, Mind, Truth, Justice, and the like.

    Best answer: Defining "soul" as elective awareness of One Mind Soul--the One Ego, or God--the "soul-field" continues post-physicality inasmuch as she resonates with, has internalized, and individuated, such Energy-aspects of the One as Love, Mind, Truth, Justice, and the like.

    Generally, "soul" is understood to be a creative opportunity of God for God to further realize Being, in that souls, realizing and individuating as "permanent atoms of Being" in the One, further "infinitize" the Godhead. True "Atomism" (i.e., that which cannot be divided) is Energy, God as One Mind Soul, individed realized Being e.g. of Angels, Man, and other evolutions.

    As for evidence in atomic (geometrized) Energy of Being, the criteria of "evidence" include a) understanding that there is--if God Is--a "category fallacy" if evidence of God, Being, is only sought in atomic energy formations--one is simply looking to a lesser level, and the claim that God Is can not be completely given in Matter, insofar as the greater is not in the lesser.

    Hints or traces of Mind, Soul, are therefore, in "science," always subject to counter-hypotheses--even miracles such as the Host of Light at Garabandal, or the Marian apparitions at Zeitun ( http://www.zeitun-eg.org/stmaridx.htm ) are easily (and superficially) counter-hypothesizable. Thus, there are three general types of evidence: fields of energy; extraordinary human acts; and personal or Self-realization-based testimony; the latter is e.g. "I and the Father are One," and asks of the auditor an equal spiritualized sensibility--which is developed e.g. per protocols and grace, e.g. as given in "Interior Castle" by Saint Teresa of Avila, "The Masters and Their Retreats," "Looking into the Invisible," "Watch Your Dreams;" "The Master of Lucid Dreams;" and "Autobiography of a Yogi."

    Examples of the first type of evidence include: http://geepp.free.fr/geepp/rfp/rfpdf/psy...
    and in theories such as given in "The Mindful Universe;" "The Physics of the Soul;" "The Self-Actualizing Cosmos;" and "Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home."

    Examples of the second type of evidence include: http://www.alextanous.org/content/out-bo... and "Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records" and "Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry: True Stories of Padre Pio." There is some overlap between laboratory protocols such as with Dr. Tanous, and fairly-corroborated witnessings of e.g. Saint Padre Pio's biolocation and telepathic miracles (second and third categories, respectively). http

  • Philosophy: How difficult should things ideally be for man?

    Best answer: In an "ideal" world--one without fallen angles and distortion--there would be clear-cut levels of progressive mastery.

    Best answer: In an "ideal" world--one without fallen angles and distortion--there would be clear-cut levels of progressive mastery. Motivation would arise per a type of Montessori-like or Edenic interest and guidance by Mind, Love..

    In the present, "real" world, it is a case of not making things too difficult nor too easy: "hurdles" that are doable, that develop and strengthen, in areas of interest (being-cognition) or necessity (deficit-cognition).

    Is it just me or does life just not make sense. I see people trying to make sense of things that happen in life, but maybe things just happen in life. Good or bad, some people are extremely lucky, some just are not. THings just happen and many times there really is no reason it happened, it just happened. I guess thats just humans, trying to make sense of everything when maybe its not suppose to make sense. It just is what it is. Deep down, i really dont know if i believe this myself but it could be the truth. Im just kinda lost in life like so many others, just asking the question why am i here, but maybe im just here and there is no reason. I dont know

  • Philosophy: Which famous philosopher do you find it difficult to respect?

    Best answer: I find Socrates to be pretty low on my list.

    Best answer: I find Socrates to be pretty low on my list. Although I think he was a genius and don't find much problem with his ideals especially given the time period he lived through, I find his disinterest in writing and documenting his work to be very disappointing. He failed to realise the importance of documentation and preservation of his work to share it with the world and allow it to live beyond him and I think that demonstrates a sort of closed-mindedness that I thought philosophy was intended to discourage. Again, not trying to discredit him, it's just an issue I find with his character.

    How was your weekend? Mine was good and I did not spend any money on entertainment and amusement. But sometimes I feel very bummed out about this. I feel this way because I used to be the exact opposite. I used to be the guy who would drink heavy drinks in the rooftop lounges, The W South Beach is my spot in Miami, where I got some friends and family. I would smoke weed and drink. I would go to restaurants and watch plays and shows, only to go to a lounge/restuarant afterwards. Night ending with around $150, sometimes more. I have stopped doing this for about a month and a half and even earlier this year I was keeping myself in check. But I really get these urges to do these things again. How can I retain my self discipline and keep being a modest and tranquil individual?
