619K SOULS

Hello, thinkers and wonderers! If you're intrigued by the big questions that have puzzled humanity for ages, you've found your intellectual home. This is a space that not only encourages but thrives on meaningful discussion around topics like existentialism, ethics and morality, the philosophy of mind, and the enduring works of ancient philosophers. We delve deep, not just skimming the surface, but exploring the underlying principles and abstract theories that can both boggle the mind and illuminate the soul. Whether you're a seasoned reader of philosophy books or just stepping into this profound realm, this community is designed for you. But our conversations here go beyond theoretical musings. In a world often driven by material pursuits and fleeting distractions, philosophy serves as a grounding force. It pushes us to consider the ethical implications of our choices, challenges us to seek coherence in our belief systems, and encourages us to connect with our deeper selves. If you're pondering existential questions, wrestling with ethical dilemmas, or dissecting theories of consciousness and self, this is your forum for unraveling those complexities. So, whether you're a student of philosophy, a professional philosopher, or simply a curious individual captivated by life's ultimate questions, you're welcome here. Let's explore these mind-bending topics together, sharpen our critical thinking skills, and perhaps even inch closer to a greater understanding of life itself. With every discussion, we enrich not just our intellectual understanding, but also deepen our emotional and spiritual perspectives.

Judging a book by its cover

You can say whatever you want about not judging books based on their covers and whatnot but the truth of the matter is that you, a living breathing thinking human, are a visual creature. Who even started the whole shebang about judging covers as a bad thing? It's not. You're literally just passing preliminary judgement based on what you see first. If a book is titled "Rocks" but sports a really cool on-theme cover, you can bet your last shiny coin that I'm getting it. Hell, the cover could even be a blank white page with a little stickman standing in the corner looking at a glass of spilt milk on the floor. It's not as cool as a ménage of fire and flames but I JUDGED it as "yes, I want you". I judge, you judge, everyone judges the cover. It's not a bad thing.

Often most people say attachment is bad for relationships but why is that? When does that form of love become unbearable for another?

Not sure if they say some generic facts, but at times the way it predict my traits is almost accurate. It is surprising.

Your experience working with Gen Z, good or bad?

I hear a lot if criticism about gen z, so much so that employers don't want to hire them as they think they are lazy. What has been your experience working with them? Personally, I don't have big enough sample size to share my experience, but I think it depends on individuals rather than judging a whole generation.

The Puzzle of Existence: Philosophy's Open Questions

Philosophy thrives on questions that push the boundaries of understanding, and one that stands out is, 'Can free will truly exist in a deterministic universe?' This question invites us to ponder the intricate dance between destiny and choice. Are our actions predetermined by the laws of physics, or do we genuinely have the power to shape our own paths? Exploring this question doesn't just challenge our intellect; it invites us to reflect on our own lives and the choices we make. It's a reminder that, in the vast landscape of human thought, some mysteries remain beautifully unresolved. What's your take on free will versus determinism? Let's dive into this philosophical debate together.

Caring about what others do vs caring about ideologies promoted

If a person spend recklessly that is his own problem. Nothing we can do about it. But if a lot of people go to credit card debt because of ideology promoted like buy now don't worry about payments, then we need to care about it. It is a consequence of an ideology promoted to them.

Don't believe everything you think!

We have learned to confuse opinions with facts. Letting the ego control us. Instead, we should listen with our hearts, and always trust our instincts, especially in 'Love'.

Are majority in the US alcoholic

As per the definition, anyone who takes 15 drinks per week is alcoholic. If we take that as a definition, I think almost 50 to 70% in the US could be alcoholic. Almost everyone drinks 5 to 8 shots on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

This old birdge

In the realm of the human experience, there exists a place akin to an old bridge gracefully arching over a serene creek. This place is a sanctuary of the mind and spirit where one can retreat from the bustling currents of life. Much like the sturdy timbers of the bridge, solitude offers a sense of stability and grounding amidst the ever-changing landscape of existence. As the waters of the creek flow steadily beneath the arches, so too does solitude provide a steady current of introspection and self-discovery. Within the quiet embrace of solitude, one finds solace from the noise and chaos of the outside world. Here, amidst the rustling leaves and babbling brook, the mind is free to wander and contemplate without the distractions of modern life. It is a place of refuge, where the burdens of the day can be laid down and the soul can find renewal in the tranquility of nature. Just as the old bridge stands as a testament to the passage of time, so too does solitude offer a timeless haven for reflection and introspection. It is a place where the past, present, and future converge, where memories are revisited and dreams take shape. In the quiet moments spent alone, one can truly connect with oneself and gain insight into the deeper mysteries of existence. So, let us embrace solitude like an old friend, seeking refuge on its weathered planks and finding peace in the gentle murmur of the creek below. In the stillness of solitude, we may discover a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us, bridging the gap between the past and the future and finding solace in the eternal present.

Curiosity

I'm trying to get a better grasp on the fundamentals of development as humans and I would like to bounce some ideas of my fellow boo's. Developmentally there are milestones that all people go through. There is a baseline that I think all people could agree on, and if we focus, while broading our ideas we could come at least come to a consensus. Like 0-6 months... When we are all our most vulnerable, we must be feed, protected, cleaned, and provided health care. There is 0% involvement in any real gender, or societal influence. Blue? Pink? It changes nothing about our identities. There is no question of sex or violence or religion. Should religions even be allowed to make any claim on children this age? Circumsicions and baptisms and the such? There are so many layers to it a good discussion would help me and maybe others at least have more information. And this goes on for each phase. What age is sex appropriate to introduce? A girls first period? A boys first time ejaculating? Is it set to an age or a level of maturity? What about violence? Do we restrict it or ignore it? What effect does watching death, have on respecting life? I'd like to have at least a general age range and the optimum amount of categories to summarize each facet of human influence and development.

The Journey

It is not so much about the origin or the destination but the company / the companion we have on that journey determines whether it's enjoyable or not. Some solo journeys are boring and some solo journeys are wonderful.

"Ephemeral Serenade: Love's Dance Through Time"

Love, a celestial melody that orchestrates the harmonious dance of hearts, transcends the confines of reason. In its ethereal embrace, souls entwine, creating a timeless tapestry woven with threads of passion and vulnerability, where the whispers of affection echo through the corridors of eternity. Yet, within this grand tapestry, love also bears the bittersweet truth that each chapter, though rich in emotion, remains a fleeting passage in the grand novel of human connection.
