Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Ecosystem denial, denial of other, and denial of self are all equally questionable.

Solipsistic thought experiments are a thorn in totalitarianism's paw because one can assume an independent position from solipsistic-style self-reference using one's own thought faculties beyond the reach of typical totalitarian control.

Is "no nuclear war" a scientific topic or is that philosophy? Math?

Nobody seriously believes in solipsism?

Is the solipsism society doing a litmus test on itself? How rigid does one have to contain their self-awareness to get kicked out? 🤣


Do brains filter a thinker's senses? Is it solipsistic at all that a person doesn't see their nose? If the brain had a wiki-belief from which it acts to do such as that, would it sound like solipsism? "How dare you ignore your nose" is what extreme solipsism denial sounds like. I'm blaming the brain.

How does anybody do solipsism incorrectly? Another extreme. "I dare defy your nose".

The brain isn't so extreme, leaving my nose out while making others sense able. Why not believe in whatever that is?

Why disbelieve while that's what's happening? Solipsism to another extreme.

Believe and disbelieve come into play. It's fair to a ask someone who is denying your nose just what the **** is breathing at them?

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

The all time award winners for worst solipsism are the God egotists. It's worthwhile blasphemy to point out that trumpism and the people who assign themselves solipsistic divine authority overlap.

I am not now nor have I ever been a member of the solipsist party. I did attend a meeting or two but I will not name names because I was the only one there.

I've investigated myself with the committee myself formed from myself to investigate myself with myself.

Innocent, but not entirely naive is the verdict.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Masque:

In infinity - your mind, my mind, all minds are one mind.

Stretched across infinite possible worlds; infinite possible experiences; infinite means of experiencing; one experiencer - you, me, everyone.

A tube of infinite length, yet finite volume. Where length stands for multi and volume for uni. Both ending in - verse.

An ever-expanding ball, punctured all around; looking out into an endless sea of experiences. One ball. Multiple perspectives.

This is all meaningless of course.
Should you choose it to be.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Doesn't represent German. German as a term is old-fashioned. Old clichés. German today isn't German in the past.

Some people screw up, that's all.

The world is global, mainly.

I'm going to guess that no one left out "must float in water" when they spoke to the engineers.

I could be wrong, and I completely agree with your assessment otherwise.

Don't be silly. The world is global-ish at best. I'd bet that most people of most nations could design a paper boat that floats for a bit with a small amount of training.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Only this was metal, not paper. Or? The wonder of making metal float. Maybe a tinfoil hat/boat?

They even make metal float in the air nowadays.

Or join Scientific society movement and change the planet forever.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Some years back we got slush in the higher elevations and ppl were stopping their cars to take pics! I don't want enough to have to shovel, though, bec 1. I no longer own a snow shovel and 2. possible heart attack.

I suppose it would be out of the question to think that kids would do the shoveling for a reasonable stipend.

Yeah I know...
