In dominant classical Greek thought the human mind can conquer anything given enough scientific rigor, in Abrahamic thought the human mind can conquer anything meant to be understood but unless one is a prophet one can not understand the divine from what I understand.
I have been arguing that these two ways of knowing may be unknowable by the human mind, at least at this point in human history and perhaps for all of human existence. Faith is therefore to me a somewhat alien decision besides the evidence I have that this universe is so neatly ordered.
Denying the prophetical nature of figures is of course dangerous in many parts of the world, so I won’t blather on.
Credit to my political philosophy class for letting me express myself in this manner.
I don’t know about you but I don’t like being fed lies, people get hooked on so many story narratives that mean or say nothing. I was scrolling social media for a long time and I didn’t learn much from it besides that I don’t like it. But there are also these convoluted story rich narratives to get stuck in, like in my case Star Trek, at least it is more focused now I would argue. It goes back to my writings on maturity. What kind of person do you want to be, do you want to be led around like a fool and lulled to sleep or be on your feet.
The metaverse is an attempt at the full lulling of the worker population it would appear, just an observation. We are run by a bunch of fucking pricks if you ask me. We aren’t even human anymore in the capitalist world, neither highest class nor lowest, deformed humans, I suppose this is what is meant by “communists are conservatives” in the sense that we were probably more in tune with our social nature before everyone wanted to be a god damned entity.
Tristan mentioned to me the energy currency thing to me and that reminded me of the old 4x Alpha Centauri.
An Energy expenditure based currency if implemented to replace the current world currencies (which would be difficult I admit) would show actual carbon footprints so quickly and we could curb reckless carbon creation due to the un-affordability of some types of industry.
I don’t care about your war historically unless it was actually just, like defeating genocidal maniacs. Bunch of fucking weapon selling fucks can go to hell.
I mean I care about your war in terms of how much it fucked you over for weapon shilling swine.
Is the second world war a social experiment by the victorious powers of WW1 gone out of control though? I don’t actually know, but yeah, there was evidence cited to me by a prof at the U of C pointing in the direction of allied interference in German affairs before everything went to hell. Look it up, I am curious what other people find. Not that it would excuse the Einsatztruppen being a bunch of monsters in my opinion.
I don’t actually support throwing out people who have lived here for hundreds of years back to Europe (though Shadowrun scenarios do amuse me). I just want to point out with this form of land acknowledgement that treaties were violently broken and there is justified rage in this entire state of affairs. Talk to me about it, I am not confident about it, also I am basically an American newcomer, so sorry if I don’t understand all this as well as I should.
You can debate whether I am wise or not, but when it comes to protecting my mortal coil I might be a lunatic. (sincerely sorry if that word triggers you, since I agree that we should have more sensitive language, but I feel I can use it to make this point)
