Hmmm, good question
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think we tend to underestimate how much people moved around in those days.
Your fucking horoscope.

I had a conversation with a coworker.
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I really would like to meet someone and maybe sense that 'click' that means things are right. That would solve the problem right away!
Eponym... Naming a person, place or thing after another person...

Does history run in endless cycles or never-ending loops?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think it's more the latter these days. There was a man called Giambattista Vico who said there are 4 phases - times of gods, heroes and men - continually running through history. The fourth phase was a return to the first. Perhaps we're in the fourth phase now.
Where is the flaw in the following proof for God's existence?
brentan comments on Sep 17, 2019:
I think Rupert Sheldrake is right to call laws 'habits'. Kant would have said that we can understand laws (habits) as concepts but I don't think he could see concepts coming from higher than the metaphysical plane of 'thinking about thinking'.

brentan comments on Sep 16, 2019:
It was a funny show even though it was frightening to see how far we could sink.
What’s a Jew to do during the high holy days when they question the existence of a higher power?
brentan comments on Sep 16, 2019:
Just remember that even if they suspect that the Jehovah god is nonsense, they very often still support the 'right' of Jews to occupy Palestine.
Aristotle, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence ,then, is not an act, but a habit"
brentan comments on Sep 16, 2019:
Anagoge - leading yourself upwards. I couldn't help thinking of Iain McGilchrist's 'our minds are what we attend to' and the poet William Blake's 'they became what they beheld'.
No, you cannot have my rights.

peccadillo--a small, rather unimportant offense or sin
brentan comments on Sep 16, 2019:

Politics have no relation to morals. - Niccolo Machiavelli
brentan comments on Sep 15, 2019:
Political morality, I think, is a perverse thing. Macchiavelli understood political necessity; how it was unavoidable for rulers to hurt some people at some times to maintain social stability. This is a kind of collateral damage. Machiavelli believed that because of this necessity, it was not just more effective, but also kinder, to get this harm done quickly. The other morality is individual. It doesn't allow for collateral damage. I don't know how individual morality might work on a societal basis.

Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect.
brentan comments on Sep 10, 2019:
I've just been reading a poem called Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood by William Wordsworth. It's all about losing that imaginative spark that makes life magical. It's beautifully written.
