The Impossible, part 4: Spiritual Oneness and the State of Incorporated Reality.

The operative question that motivates the essays on the impossible can be formulated by the questions of determinism and contingency: Is the random aspect of the physical universe of science responsible or otherwise enacted or present in the random aspect that involves human choice, such that choice is determined by the state of the universe,… Continue reading The Impossible, part 4: Spiritual Oneness and the State of Incorporated Reality.

Tangent 4.19: what gives? The possibility of Communicating.

Direction 4.10: Jargon, Bad Faith… Part 2

Since the previous post was rather long, and really could be seen as addressing different parts of the issue, I decided to re-post the second part of 4.5 as a part 2. This part continues with my question of academic jargon, and shows how the jorgonizers are making things much too difficult. I have then… Continue reading Direction 4.10: Jargon, Bad Faith… Part 2
