Hey y'all

I finished my first philosophy manuscript . Here's almost the finished version . I figure y'all can handle it . My first philosophy manuscript is called Kinds and Degrees . I am currently working on my second philosophy manuscript . Neither of these manuscripts are my first or second , but they are respectively my first philosophy manuscript and second philosophy manuscript : the prior being my first first philosophy manuscript and the latter being my first second philosophg manuscript : i call this first second philosophy manuscript Ontic and Idaöntic : this first second philosophy manuscript of mine is possibly the first first second philosophy manuscript to ever been have written yet . This book took many years of research . I hope it will get me into a phd program . The pdf file was made by google drive and is 65 something MB large . It is well over 25000 words . But i'm not much of word count kind of guy . All art unless obvious is mine . All commentary is welcome . I love giving talks . I already have bachelors from a large state school . But they screwed me over with a shitty grandfather grading clause so i have a 2.0 instead of s 3.83 and my life has been a living hell . I figured if i rigorously solved every philosophy problem before applying i'd be a strong candidate for a phd in philosophy . I managed to solve basically every single problem a first philosophy calls to be questioned and resolved : i address historical arguments and arguments about the historical : i solve the einsteineian problem of loss of objectivity in science through a mathematical deduction based on a certain proof from graph theory . I then apply said application (which i call in [shorttitle] Ontics , a "morphic" a la morphisms but sidestepping import of category theoretic presuppositions and ideontics (which are distinct from concepts ( but that's second philosophy stuff ) ) toward a philosophy of sense ( distinct from Baumgarten but not entirely not ) for it is similar to Husserl's states goal of phenomenology in his entry for phenomenology's encyclopedia entry , but I distinguish my first philosophy from Husserl's , Aristotle's , Heidegger's , Sartre's (Herder 2(too) but that's in book too 2 ) , Wittgenstein's , Hegel's , and notably Kant's -- for i found a novel formal proof which refutes all of Kant and establishes a possibility for a speculative realism but without Meillassoux's self-contradictions he imported into his long form argument against Dogmatism ( which i also address in the book ) -- for the philosopher's who would agree with my work , I found that their work simply was of a slightly different consequent of similar enough trajectory to not outright completely dispute / refute ( hume and spinoza ) -- I turn Deleuze on his head -- I do not address much ethics outside of a support of a kind of logical utilitarianism but via Message too long.

An argument for the absurdity of free will using a quantum particle Anonymous 21/03/10(Wed)21:40 No. 14700 ID: df3bdc [Reply]

An argument for the absurdity of free will using a quantum particle:

1.If X is able to do action Y and simultaneously is able to not do action Y, X has free will.
2.X being able to do Y is equivalent to there being a probability greater than zero that X will do Y.
3.X being able to not do Y is equivalent to there being a probability lesser than one that X will do Y.
4.If there is an action Y that X has a probability to do that is not 0 (no possibility) and not 1 (only possibility) then X has free will.
5.A physical object changing its state is an action taken by the object.
6.If a physical object has a probability to enter state Y that is not 0 or 1, the physical object has free will.
7.A quantum particle can have a probability that is not 0 or 1 to enter a particular state.
8.A quantum particle can have free will.
9.A quantum particle is not alive, does not have consciousness, and does not have the capacity to think or feel.
10.Life, consciousness, and the capacity to think or feel are not necessary attributes to have free will.

X=1, Y=1
1=1, X=Y
X-Y, (1-X)=x(Y)
x(Y) =/= X, X=1
Xx
Y=x
Q=x
Q=1
Q=x
X =/= Y

Most of this boils down to labels. Math sucks dick nigger, all niggers are gay and die

have to agree with your conclusion that all niggers are gay and die.
But I am not sure about how you derived it.




Religious significance of the plague Anonymous 20/11/04(Wed)08:23 No. 14624 ID: 7cb4c3 [Reply]

So I found a strange bit of information combing through wikipedia that's kind of startling. During the plague there were three planets in the sky that were considered strange or new, like the ones we have now.

>The most authoritative contemporary account is found in a report from the medical faculty in Paris to Philip VI of France. It blamed the heavens, in the form of a conjunction of three planets in 1345 that caused a "great pestilence in the air" (miasma theory).[43]

If you guys look in the morning you can see the most obvious one, the morning star which is exceptionally bright. There's also the evening star that usually has another one close by it but is still the brightest at that time. There's even one in between the two that has an orange hue if I remember correctly. Of course there's also the new plague, the coronavirus.

What are the chances that the exact same thing would be happening in the sky during both plagues? The 1300's were also around when Joan of Arc appeared IIRC. It's an exceptional bit of coincidence if it's just that, I think this proves that historically God was punishing the region and is doing so again to us and the world.

Planets actually do appear *for the most part* the same in the northern and southern hemispheres, except for being 'upside down'- i.e., in the southern hemisphere the planets appear to the north instead of to the south, and their 'left-r ight' orientation is switched; their east-west orientation is NOT, and they are visible during the same times of day in both hemispheres.

This reeks of Christian right wing shamanism.

capstone project writer Ada Xavier 23/07/31(Mon)13:38 No. 15324 ID: 0d99e2 [Reply]

Capstone papers, also known as capstone projects or capstone essays, are comprehensive academic assignments typically required at the end of a degree program. They serve as a culmination of a student's learning and often involve extensive research, analysis, and critical thinking. Capstone papers vary in format and content, depending on the discipline and the specific program requirements. They may involve conducting original research, implementing a real-world project, or exploring a complex issue in depth. Capstone papers provide students with an opportunity to showcase their academic abilities, demonstrate mastery of the subject matter, and apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations. These projects are designed to challenge students to think critically, synthesize information, and present their findings in a cohesive and well-structured manner. Capstone papers play a significant role in the assessment of a student's readiness to enter the professional world or pursue further academic endeavors https://papermasters.org/buy-capstone-project-online-help/

Something seems off to me about this.
It's basically saying abuse should be ignored, and that those that engage in accountability-based reasoning or deterrent reasoning are weak.
That doesn't make a lick of sense.
Sounds like the motto of a predator.

This is just a quote from einstein. He surely doesn't mean it. People that take that too to heart create problems in people. Also yes it means you ignore obvious problems in the world to save yourself. It's unethical.

Ideas that sound good.

But only as long as you intend for other people to foot the bill for your ideas. Whilst you intend to pay. Nothing.

I know that. I mean to say that post-primary schooling (after sixth/seventh grade) should not be compulsory. It should be paid out of pocket or require mandatory entrance exams. Otherwise, kids should go straight to work.

Yes why?
On the side note, did not ask of your political views.

Left yes.

Let us get started now.
People had inherited names.
You would take on your fathers name.
Sometimes people reinvented the same name.
It was never stolen.
Therefore last names were invented yes.
They describe an job or evolvmenthereof such.
In any way, people develop.
Bad traits are also therefore inherited as extra points.

What's your opinion of AntiCitizenX's critique of modern Philosophy /his?

Any rebuttals?
