MY THOUGHTS (1 / 43)
Most people start from a point of belief, and only after enough doubt accumulates, will they rescind their belief.
("this is true! oh wait, no it's not).
Some people start from a point of disbelief, and will only believe once enough evidence mounts to make them believe.
("this can't be true! oh wait, but it is!")
I start from a point of belief, but believe that my belief is incorrect, but act as if my belief were true until my belief is proven either true or enough evidence mounts to prove it false.
("I want this to be true, but I don't think it is... ah it looks like it is/is not true.")
Where to begin?
Behaviorally, but not ideologically.
But he is behaviorally.
Two philosophical problems with the idea of learning from a mistake.
Truth is just an ideal.
The difference between experiential and conceptual learning.
It means to lose control, to be compelled to act despite oneself.
The world is topsy-turvy, therefore ways of helping it ideologically are topsy-turvy too.
Real creation that benefits humanity happens alone at first.
Making stressful decisions can lead to happiness; peace of mind is the aftermath of moral tension.
We need to re-examine our ideas about love in order to make the world a better place.
A short story with hints of borderline and projection.
How you feel about it is important.
An analogy for life.
A passive pursuit is not a pursuit at all.
The reason why Elon is a utopian anarchist-socialist-capitalist.
We're idiots because we're hypocrites digging our own graves.
Dualism is a lie.
Kids should learn to decide for themselves.
"Without art, he insists, shirking no personal or collective horrors, we do not know ourselves or anyone else. Only art penetrates what pride, passion, intelligence and habit erect on all sides - the seeming realities of this world. There is another reality, the genuine one, which we lose sight of. This other reality is always sending us hints, which, without art, we can't receive. Proust calls these hints our "true impressions." The true impressions, our persistent intuitions, will, without art, be hidden from us and we will be left with nothing but a "terminology for practical ends which we falsely call life."
