    This Life

    I think I have chosen this life so that I learn patience and perseverance which for me are two of the most difficult things to swallow. I want what I want now and I must learn these lessons in order to move on to the next plane. If it will be accomplished in this lifetime is...

    I'm especially interested in ontological

    arguments and metaphysics, but ethics is rad too (and always applicable)! I'm currently studying Philosophy and Psychology at university and I finally feel like I'm getting to where I can actually write a coherent argument haha

    I Fancy Myself A Philosopher

    When I was in college, I took a class titled *Greek Logic*. Not primarily a class one would take as a freshman, especially with it being first thing in the morning at 7am. Surprisingly I did very well in said class. Now I understand that Logic is fundamentally different than...

    Being Wise

    What is being wise really? I think everyone's opion of being wise is different, since we all have our own truth. So i'm sharing my view on what i think wise is. Being wise to me means that you are a strong and happy individual. You take life for what it is and enjoy the present...

    Impromptu - Philosophy - Questioning

    When I was little my grandmother always told me that things happen for a reason. Without thinking about it, I took what she said and believed it with all my heart. Whatever happened, do not dwell, do not question, things will play out. Ultimately it was having faith in the world...

    There's Nothing Else

    what other point is there in life except to be a thinker, an observer, a questioner? what other point is there? As Plato says "An unexamined life is not worth living" I think that pretty much sums it up. Examine your life, always strive to find meaning in the...

    The only philosophy class I ever took was somewhat of a disaster in which I got an A. When I philosophize, it is not like most who philosophize (at least not like the folks in my class). I have allways thought off the wall or outside the box. I would imagine anyone who...

    Why does anything exist at all?

    I always come to the same conclusion that I can't know. But I guess I keep hoping I can figure out something nobody ever has.

    My friends always get upset with me because I think too much. I evaluate every situation, every person I come in concact with. I can't help it, though. Thinking is what I do. I've explained it to them, but they only get confused. I've tried keeping my thoughts to myself, but...

    I am a firm believer that what we consider god to be is all that has been, all that is and all that ever will be in and outside of time and space. In god we live move and have our being. We are created from what god is and we inhabit the space which god is. Therefore we are in...

    Causality vs Attraction,

    any thoughts? Instead of previous moments consisting of other previous moments that pushes us into the present. Could it be said that some moments in the future are pulling us in? Pulling towards rather than just only being pushed from behind?

    God Of Your World

    So I have this theory that I am the god of this world. I came to it by many means, to many to say. I precieve this world as I see it, therefore I have the ability to change the way I see it and thus change reality and everything in this world. I also know that this world begins...

    So many perplexing questions. Is there really a God? Was Jesus really what they said he was? Is Mary Magdalene the first apostle. How did we get where we are today? Why can't we all just love each other? Every time you get an answer to 1 question, there is another one behind it...
