Missing the point? + A Deep Dive into: Time [pt.2] – Schopenhauer’s idea that the past, future NOR the present can be enjoyed assumes that the past, present and future are actually things.

Time is that by virtue of which everything becomes nothingness in our hands and loses all real value. Just because my dog Chunky gets excited when I come home doesn’t mean that he remembers me. Our view of nature is skewed in a way that if it must act in …

Hypothetical: If you could choose between dying peacefully (and unaware) during your sleep, or die FULLY AWARE, but have ONE SECOND after your heart stops (and before your brain shuts down) where you could see the universe’s entire past and future and understand every single thing in the universe ever (alas Lucy in yep ‘Lucy’), which would you choose? & The Philosophy of: Lucy [pt.4]

There’s one thing, just one, that is impossible to ever know about. One thing that no one can ever experience and tell us about, for us to know, for a fact, what it’s like. And yep, that is pretty much my favourite topic to talk about, (just behind this): death. …

The concept of time in years, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds doesn’t exist. Is it possible time moves forward, but doesn’t LAST for any amount of time at all?

Think about the last 5 minutes. What did you do? How do those five minutes feel now? Now think back to a period of your life that lasted years. School. Or an extended stay overseas. Or some time living in a place with someone (or multiple people). Or your multi-year …

What is ‘success’? How much of your time is in your control? – The philosophy of: CGP Grey, Apollodorus in Plato’s The Symposium, The Onion, a former student of mine, and I guess mine too.

What do you consider ‘success’? The way that it’s treated by seemingly the majority of the world is: money, fame, recognition, financial assets or some bullshit ass cocktail of the above. But no matter how substantial your bullshit ass cocktail is, do you live a longer life than those without …

Dust. Wind. Dude. – The Philosoph(izing) of: Bill S. Preston esquire and Ted Theodore Logan [pt.3]

Throughout the ages, wisdom hasn’t changed. We were the exact same species one hundred, five hundred, two thousand and 5 thousand years ago. We still all live and we die (for now). Whether our inability to process and accept wisdom is the reason for the wisdom never evolving is another …

There’s ONE way that time travel is possible. And it’s happening every moment, so go with it – The philosophy of: Billy the Kid (in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure)

So time travel (backwards) is a toughie… and one of the reasons is this… But you are always time travelling. Into the future. Just now, your past 3 seconds ago is gone. Forever. And ditto your past 3 seconds ago now. So you’ve got two options: 1) You can pine for …

Why Time travel (at least backwards) is not possible – The Philosophy of: minutephysics and the Grandfather Paradox

Time travel’s a tough nelly. And largely because Time only goes in one direction. And maybe that’s enough to prove that traveling backwards in it is not possible. Well, this paradox from minutephysics is something that could make the whole thing at least a bitch to do, makes the whole …
