Exsiting

[Those with no respect for philosophy are kindly requested not to interfere with the group, and this thread.]

Unlike most persons, some persons in the group know that they exist. These are the serious ones. The rest have no respect for discussion. They don't know that they exist; they are the thoughtless cargo of the heritage.

peek-a-boo lol :lol:
(Our object of desire isn't to change current belief systems or complicate already convoluted streams of information; we're not trying to even prove ourselves in anyway. We're just human beings similar to yourself. Not superior, the same. Ancestors of the lost world. The conflicts of beliefs you face in your world, are not only the conflict of self yet life, we cannot compel such conflicts to other's will for any self-benefit. The true goal reached here is there is nothing we can say nor do that can convince anyone else of what they don't know for themselves already. And, when the time calls, and you are ready, the barriers of awareness will expand and such confirmed information will be easily perceived, and known to them! Allow them to seek and find out when they are prepared. All will arrive to light in no time.)

Art-world references (or theater, as it were) won't improve the status of the stranger enemy with respect to genuine philosophy.

Ok ? Menos/Xenos :- one who thinks for himself (menos) and one who is a member of a supposed incrowd ok(Xenos) either / or ?
But is that the solution ? I don't think so. There are much more not understood membership requirements , whom are believed to have a mutual membership. They are free, not bound.

Even if. Whatever. And besides who is the judge and jury. and who makes these pronouncements.

Besides, old world art may have something to do with it. Again what brings forth these, like it was some judgment of Paris?

But run, Melos! -to Demos.

This is the last post on making into anything this writer does, not out of concern for myself, but for whomever may read offensive comments, which has never been my intention or style.

My opinion is, that there is no end to what some writers will do to gain attention, even at the price of baiting for controversy.

Guide , if I offended You im sorry, but remember who started with offensive ad-hominem, even if, as your opinion makes it clear, it makes for "good philosophy"

“offensive ad-hominem”

This shows a thoughtless reception of the current authority. In all authority there is something stupid, worse than an animal. One says “ad hominem” but doesn't understand why. Because one doesn’t understand it is all the more obdurate. When one is able to think about what one is saying, having said it because on brought it forward from one’s own resources, one is able to give reasons, and is less stupid. This is one symptom of the stupidity of a part of the group, that which uses the phrase “ad hominem”.


“Besides, old world art may have something to do with it. Again what brings forth these, like it was some judgment of Paris?”


The diabolic swine, frighted with the most spiritual of plonk wines, only then, would the gifted ones learn thinking.

Guide is correct, it was not an ad hom. It was merely an insult.
That said the OP is not the opening of a philosophy discussion. Whatever it is belongs in some other forum.

The group takes note of this negative view of the group, concerning genuine philosophic investigation. This seems to stem from a dumb prefigured academic mania, profoundly adolescent and destructive of living philosophy in every respect. The group regards this as a sort of disease, that of thoughtlessness which take orders from the fraught train of the heritage. It is as though, philosophy itself had become what tit what meant to set aside. Blind and prompt obedience to old habits.

The group finds this comment, of the group, very shallow and thoughtless. After all, it implies the group could never say anything worthy, since all must be already understood or a mere "posturing". A stupid idea, discredited by anyone who has ever learned anything and reflects on what learning is. Besides, it also implies an idiot authority at work in the group's answer, i.e., that the objection doesn't understand itself, but relies on, some celebrity or teacher: ergo, it is beyond reason and unreasonable.

The group?

I concur on the matter of respect for Philosophy and for discussion, but people have been taught to bring argument to the table and not to discuss.. especially Americans,

Argument is part of, but should not be the entirety of, a philosophical discussion.

Does it?

Isn't that a rather shallow and thoughtless presumption? Ask yourself the question: could my response just as easily apply only to one thing you have said, such as the opening post of this incorrectly spelt thread?

It could? Well, that's convenient because that's all I intended.

If I was going to make generalisations about you, I'd now suspect you to be hostile and defensive to the point of irrationality, and with your intentionally bizarre style of speech: pretentious and self-important.

But I'm not going to assume, so feel free to prove my initial response wrong and dispel my suspicious, drop the posturing and create some actual content for this here thread of yours. Or prove me right and don't, up to you.
