“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” — George Bernard Shaw
Philosophy is by all accounts on a stowing away to nothing. It’s anything but a 2,500-year history in the West and a broad back-inventory of issues. There are inquiries concerning what exists and what we think about it: Do we have through and through freedom? Is there an outer world? Does God exist? Etc.
However, rationalists haven’t effectively given any answers, notwithstanding this abundance of inquiries and the…
“I am a realist as well as an idealist, and I think that it is incumbent upon those of us in opposition to try to work within what are always arduous circumstances to stretch the limits of the possible.” — Todd Gitlin
You’re perusing these words on the screen of a specific gadget. You may be grasping the device, or it very well may be laying on your lap, a work area, or some other advantageous surface.
Notwithstanding the specific model and arrangement of your gadget, there’s one thing that is so clear about it that it barely should be…
“Never let the state of waiting to be in your mind.
Just do something else and do it by intention.” — Toba Beta
The pandemic has either made a lot of extra energy or excessively little. Kitchen-table drives and decreased social commitments grow mornings and ends of the week for a few, while guardians and gig laborers are depleted by the consistent, covering requests of home and work.

“It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere… Science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.”
― Albert Einstein
It’s morning mealtime. You’re ravenous. There’s a plate…
“Sometimes I think that we are living in a simulation controlled by the reigns of a destructive child who often gets bored or distracted, leaving us trapped inside feedback loops for years at a time.” — Mija
Anyway, agitating, it’s a convincing chance that our general surroundings aren’t ‘genuine’ yet mimicked by a PC. In 2003, Nick Bostrom — a Swedish savant at the University of Oxford — set The Simulation Argument, an unmistakable line of dissuading a significantly disrupting end.
Bostrom’s decision recommends that instead of the carefree carbon-based lifeforms we trust ourselves to be, we are, indeed, the…
