Describe me the glass of water.

It is a hardened silicate conic section, capped at one end. It contains dihydrogen monoxide, and a gaseous mixture of mostly nitrogen, some oxygen, and a bit of a variety of other gases.

If the glass was once empty, but was filled halfway, it is half full.
If the glass was once full, but was emptied half way, it is half empty.

How do you know that is an empty space on that glass of water, if it's water in that glass. :) and how do you know that the glass is exist?
if the glass is half empty than it is realy half-empty or not?

/phi, so late to the party...


PlutoniumBoss!Y1SVQJ54eA 14/06/16(Mon)06:26 No. 11519 ID: c1bebf

We continue discussions that were started thousands of years ago here. I don't think any of us are worried about being late to the party.

Anonymous 14/06/17(Tue)08:26 No. 11521 ID: 86e709

Good call. I found on a few more faults in interpreting those words completely literally:

1. No time constraints given for said partys attendance.
2. Nor were any invitations extended expressly to members of phi.
3. Most catastrophically, as it turns out, there was no party after all!

And here I got all dressed up and ready to make some friends.

It's a flask made from three glass panes. I made that glass from putting sand in a furnace. I filled it with water from the sea. If I add netherwart, I can begin to make something useful out of it.

But right now, it's just taking up inventory space.

There is no glass of water.

A series of pixels on my computer screen approximating a glass of water filled relatively to half.

It's a depiction of a glass of water containing roughly 50% of it's maxiumum capacity.

Oh! I know this one!
"There is no spoon."
No, that's not it.
"Know Thy Spoon."
No, that's not it either.
"Spoon is just a word. What is important is what connection it implies."
FFFCKKKKK..... Wait!
"Not everyone spoons what you spoon!"
"My spoons do not require them to."
Was that it? Or was it...
"Everything that has a spoongining, has a spoonend."

You're all insane. Why do you ask if the cup is full? The question should be "is this enough water?" Or perhaps even "am I thirsty?".

This is why you people are so stupid. You're dehydrated damn it. Regardless, my answer to the question is to just get more water.

I spooned you, Mr. Anderson; I watched you sleep, with a certain creepiness, I might add. And then something happened. Something that I knew was impossible, but it happened anyway: you spooned me, Mr. Anderson.

It's filled with half water and half air.

The glass is at about half it's capacity.

it is a bunch of very, very tiny vibrating strings interacting in similar ways that fill half of the volume of another collection of very, very tiny vibrating strings that are interacting in a different way, with both collections oriented in a way that allows the first collection to fill the second collection via the force of gravity (also tiny vibrating strings) oriented in a way that follows the direction of acceleration towards the very large body of very, very tiny vibrating strings.

Both the water and the cup exist imperfectly according to our perception, but what is important is not the cup nor the water, but the essence of the cup and the essence of the water, or cupness and waterness, if you will. These are qualities which extend themselves imperfectly into our dimension, creating what you and I see as a simple cup with half its amount of water in it, yet waterness and cupness are beyond us, eternal, perfect in their own dimensional plane.

Even if the water is full of half empty it will eventually evaporate it does not matter. Just like our lives will evaporate.

**Describe (to) me the glass of water.

This is an image of a glass of water, and therefore an illusion. The original glass of water has no doubt since been disposed of and forgotten, very much unlike this thread.

The glass is simply larger than necessary. A metaphor for the gross excess of Western culture.

do not think about a glass of water

Anonymous 17/04/04(Tue)02:01 No. 12883 ID: 946ad3

It is not a glass of water. It is a picture, of a glass with water. "The" contains an ambiguity regarding an ideal glass of water, vs. the depicted glass of water. "This" would have been denoting more correctly, on the assumption that context suggests, though technically still wrong. Please specify your terms, and avoid unnecessary vagueness in the expression of the question.

Of, on the other hand, you were playing with the ambiguities, and want an irrational poetic description, well fuck me, das Gevirt n shiat.

it shows diversity of the people around us people who moan about the glass being half empty and people being optimstic about the glass being half full shows u the different types of people in the world.It also symbolizes how pure creation and water actually is.
