Philosophy Category?

Would be nice.

But if you Kant do it and the format is Locked, I understand - just Descartes this suggestion.

I am very interested in the philosophy of Punism. It enriches my language skills.

The world does not need another Punist.

HK -

My electrons at this moment are now everywhere else. When I understood I was enlightened. I then understood that the Universe is, and everything is part of a fully integrated whole. Our self awareness is rational evidence that the Universe is aware of the moment. Being self aware allows me/us to perceive and understand some of the Universe's other fully integrated parts/components/systems/...

I see this in the Tao symbol.

I'll go with the Eagles.

"Take It easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy"

I actually was a Philosophy major in college for a short time.

What can I say?, it was the 60's.



But then I realized what a crock of shit it was.

Even more than many subjects, academic philosophy is an exercise in faking it so as to have a pleasant university life....

Great comment.

Everybody is enlightened. But only few awake to this insight.

By the way - Nucelar Physicist Niels Bohr integreted the Tao symbol and the words "contraria sunt complementa" into his family coat of arms. We can see a picture of it in Capra's book "The Tao Of Physics".
