Look What I've Unleashed!!!

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Look What I've Unleashed!!!

She is literally going around to all of the threads I created in which to discuss philosophy, and dropping these in inane turds in them.

I sent the the following message to Dan and Carleas:

Dan, Carleas

I'd appreciate it if you would put a stop to this. If not, it's beyond my control.


She snapped. Many objectivist I've come across over the years have. It's just that few will go to this length to embarrass themselves.

If you come into my threads to shit, I must return your kindness.

I certainly hope you reported your behavior as well.

Teaching you a lesson is not embarrassing in the least.

If anyone should be embarrassed it’s a man your age, playing the games you play and having the gall to call it philosophy.

Note to others:

She created this thread:

WendyDarling wrote:What is binary choice...

...to us, as humans?

Is it 1/0? On/Off?

A choice between opposites?

Could what we consider a choice, not apply to the larger aspects of reality?

Especially, when considering on and off. We view it as the extremes of existence, but when we turn something on and power it, did we create it or channel it only, for it never was truly turned off?


Now, did I rerspond with this:

:banana-angel: :banana-blonde: :banana-dreads: :banana-gotpics: :banana-guitar: :banana-jumprope: :banana-linedance: :banana-ninja: :banana-rainbow: :banana-rock: :banana-skier: :banana-stoner: :banana-tux: :banana-wrench: :banana-fingers: :banana-angel: :banana-gotpics: :violence-minigun:

Nope.

It being the philosophy forum, I responded with this instead:

We'll need a context of course.

Here's one that I often fall back on: abortion.

You are a doctor performing Mary's abortion. You have choices to make as the procedure unfolds. You can choose to do this or you can choose to do that. Which choice is the most rational? Can this be ascertained by trained doctors?

You are an ethicist asked to weigh in on the morality of aborting Mary's unborn baby/clump of cells. Mary does not want to give birth and believes it is her political right to choose to terminate it. John, the father of this unborn baby/clump of cells, insist instead it is the natural right of his son or daughter to be born.

Binary thinking in the first context, binary thinking in the second context?


An attempt to bring her abstract point out into the world of actual human interactions.

Decide for yourself which post most constitutes taking a shit in a philosophy forum.

As I noted with phyllo:

Of course here you have a choice [binary or otherwise]: call her on polluting my threads or, sure, figure that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Do you not understand what a question is? If something is undefined or defined incorrectly, how many contexts are you expecting? What you are asking for is the cart before the horse.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Well, given "the gap" of course.

Unfortunately, as I am asking for a definition or the common understanding of Binary Choice itself, Biggie’s spiel was completely inappropriate, placing a cart waaaaay before the horse.

Do you have anything by way of a definition or understanding for Binary Choice to place in that thread?

Okay, define your terms and then respond to the point I made about bringing definitions out into the world of human interactions where some among us insist that there are binary solutions in regard to moral and political value judgments in turn: one of us/one of them.

Dan, Carleas
I'd appreciate it if you would put a stop to this.

I'm not sure what i should do.
I was hoping you could resolve this on your own.
Real life has no mods.
Real life has police, lawyers, etc.
But that is only for serious business.
Jesus once said : "Love your enemies."
Adolf said, if i remember right, to "Always be polite,
even with your enemies".
There doesn't need to be a problem here, though.
I like http://www.accuradio.com , internet radio.
