brentan comments on Mar 18, 2020:
I've heard a new term on the market these days called 'relevance realisation'. It comes to try to solve a problem that has existed even before open minds, a problem called 'combinatorial explosion'. This is the problem our poor brains are faced with because of endless possibilities. If I understand relevance realisation correctly, it comes from intuition rather than calculation, a kind of 'mother-wit'. I'm hoping it will save me from myself.

I had the double LP for many years. It was a great thing to see how well the Hispanic music traveled. I think the language is Portuguese but you know what I mean. I was enjoying Samba Pa Ti and Baile Mi Hermana long before I found out what the lyrics meant. These days I really like Robi Draco Rosa and Ruben Blades.

Not too long ago I heard a guy say, “I’m an Atheist now but I but I still fear going to Hell.
brentan comments on Mar 15, 2020:
I think it's the head conflicting with the heart. Perhaps it's a transitional stage that will end when the head takes over. Then again, the head shouldn't really be allowed to take over completely. It wouldn't allow us to be completely human. Spinoza might offer a solution when he says knowledge can't affect emotion. He believed one emotion can only be changed by a stronger emotion. For example, smokers are often unaffected by knowledge of the consequences. They might be swayed by the emotional sense of freedom from nicotine. If knowledge can't do away with feelings of eternal punishment, I wonder what other stronger feeling might.

Worried about the shortage of booty paper in the upcoming coronapocolypse?
brentan comments on Mar 14, 2020:
I listened to a Muslim guy on social media taking a lot of flak over their bum-washing custom. I thought he had a point but I think some use of paper first is best. Here's the thing, though, and I got this from the Muslim guy too - complicated poops are often the result of a bad diet, i.e., lack of fruit and fibre. The better the diet, I think, the less paper needs to be involved. The stool comes out in one piece, no leftovers. Better for our finances, better for hygiene, better for the environment.
Some praise for ritualistic practice
brentan comments on Mar 14, 2020:
One of the problems dealing with ancient people is that we look at them through our modern eyes, thinking they thought like us but with less science. Writers like Owen Barfield and Julian Jaynes are helpful to get us to see these people through *their* eyes. One very important conclusion, if it is true, is that ancient people had no consciousness as we understand it, but rather only the consciousness of the nervous and limbic systems. Barfield describes their sense of their world as being in it rather than outside looking in and terms it 'original participation'. Jaynes describes their minds as bicameral, the one side unconsciously engaging in life's common events and the other side unconsciously determined by what they saw as gods.

brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
I think our civilisation owes a lot to our Judeo-Christian heritage and the modern philosophies that grew out of it thanks to the contributions of the many Christian scholars advancing human thought through the centuries. We live in a peculiar situation these days where we can criticise the many faults of Christianity from the vantage point that Christianity has taken us to. The soul-destroying emptiness that engulfs many people today is the lack of that religion that despite its many faults, was a philosophy that gave meaning to so many people's lives.
CFI has it right.
brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
The trouble is there seems to be a correlation between rationality and lack of meaning in our lives. To put it a different way, religion has traditionally given people meaning in their lives and rationality gave them a meaningless mechanical universe that was/is very empty and depressing. OK, OK, there are people who can find meaning in life without religion. I'm one of them. For many, many people, our modern secular world isn't working out well for them and we see the symptoms of this dis-ease everywhere.
UK: "Canceled for telling the truth" : .
brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
Even though I live next door, I don’t know exactly what’s going on in the UK these days. I get the feeling it’s a combination of a minority who live in ghettos. I feel that way because Muslims I meet in Spain seem such nice, friendly people. Could we conclude that these Muslim criminals in the UK are scum? Even if we thought maybe their social status there has turned them into scum? I think government could reverse the mentality of these criminals if it didn’t view immigrants as another source to preserve an underclass that will keep labour costs down.

brentan comments on Mar 12, 2020:
I thought the Industrial Revolution had a toxic effect on the daily lives of human beings so a return to work from home might look like a return to the good ol' days. The problem is our homes aren't part of the old feudal/agricultural landscape which, along with its bad elements, gave both men and women a home-based place in the business of life. This return to the home, I fear, might be just another stage in a world lacking a sense of community, by removing the need to engage even for the sake of a paycheck.

brentan comments on Mar 10, 2020:
Here's something not directly related. I heard it from Tom Holland in a YT video. He says there has been for some time now a move to get away from the 'Christianisation' of other religions. This idea is about treating beliefs as universal rather than local, and principled rather than organic. This Christianisation, he says, was a feature of colonialism. He says the recent developments in India, where Modi is pushing for a nation of Hindus only, is an expression of this move back to local gods, local identity, local religion..

brentan comments on Mar 10, 2020:
My country seems to have had a 'comfortable' relationship with laws for centuries. It might be from being under English rule, where laws were viewed as oppressive so it was only right to flout them. It might also stem from the Celtic spirit, where individualism was prized more than community. Your story, I think, shows the good side of discretion, something that has been rigorously routed out by the law as it enforces uniformity and fights abuse through favouritism.

Is there a difference between justification and rationalization?
brentan comments on Mar 9, 2020:
I think of rationalisation as the most effective course of action and justification as the morally right course of action. I think the former has always been a subjective matter. The latter, in the Christian world, has traditionally been viewed as objective but not anymore in our postmodern view of morality.

Here’s an interesting article about the enigma of conscious awareness.
brentan comments on Mar 8, 2020:
I think Descartes did us no favours in separating mind and matter. That’s not to say he hasn’t contributed tremendously to ‘the great conversation’ of philosophy. But we’ve become locked into the idea that the mind is dependent on the brain and dies when the brain dies. The British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has described the brain as more a transmitter than the originator and storage of thought. His book The Presence of the Past is intriguing. I think this idea originated prior to Rupert but he has developed and championed the idea. His theory is that the experiences of the past (somewhat like Jung’s collective unconscious) exist around us on a different plain (or wavelength) and are downloaded as necessary, processed in the brain and new thoughts upload to that wavelength that he called a morphic field. This would mean that babies are born with anything but the ‘tabula rasa’ that John Locke taught. It would also mean that we leave our mark on the collective unconscious after we die. It might even mean we continue as conscious entities in some manner.

Owen Barfield saw impressionism as a manifestation of 'original participation', a sense that early man had of being 'in life' instead of 'outside looking in'.

I'm slowing coming to believe that this is what the ancients meant by freedom. I think it's what (for me, the mythical) Jesus meant too. It's hard to put it in words, but I see it as something like 'the freedom to choose correctly' which sounds to the modern mind like a contradiction. Kant seemed to have a sense of it too because he called his critique of morality the Critique of Practical Reason.

The thing about it is that Islam is for the most part a religion of peace, in the same way Christianity is.

Those hawks on both sides need to be watched and contained but otherwise we should just live and let live.
"And empty words are evil." - Homer
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2020:
I guess it's the morality of a word signifying something, and it should really also signify the thing it is meant to signify. That notion is getting away from us, I think, as words are being used mostly to advance personal aims. It reminds me of Kant's 'concepts without intuitions are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind'.

brentan comments on Mar 1, 2020:
I would defend Peterson by saying he must sometimes change the question. One example is 'do you believe in god' which he changes to 'do you behave as if there is a god', which he then answers in the affirmative. Peterson couldn't find ground with Dillahunty, a problem I believe was caused by Dillahunty's black-and-white propositions. Peterson was more successful with Harris because Harris was open-minded enough to search out that common ground. I think, though, that all this is small beer in relation to the level of illumination Peterson brings to philosophy.

brentan comments on Feb 28, 2020:
Immanuel Kant says human reason works that way. It's very nature is to unify ideas. That nature, he says, is what made it impossible for people to come to any other rational conclusion than the concept of a single god. This works great, as you say, in the world of experience when reason finds its expression in its application to nature. Where reason goes wrong, he says, is when it follows its natural course beyond the world of experience and starts getting dogmatic about things it knows nothing about; things like god, the soul and immortality.
Would someone, using logic, show that the so-called "common sense" gun laws are based on logic?
brentan comments on Feb 27, 2020:
I think the logic is that an armed individual able to protect him/herself is most important. In some countries, like mine, the most important thing is for society to be safe, not the individual. So we have had a low number of fatalities in comparison (the drugs trade and generally high stress levels are raising the numbers these days). So the individual, is in a sense, carrying individual risk for the sake of society. I think vaccinations follow the same way of thinking.

Curiously, the singer James Taylor said on a recent YouTube video that when he was hooked on drugs, he used a lot of physical exercise to help break free. If possible, I think some connection with nature would help. But if the situation can't be helped by these things you could do yourself, I say do what the ToolGuy recommends and seek help from a professional.
