  • Research that shows conscious choice is always the act of unconscious causes?

    Best answer: Libet's position re his research findings is that the research is inconclusive re question of volition.

    Best answer: Libet's position re his research findings is that the research is inconclusive re question of volition. Specifically, the "readiness potential" discovered by Kornhuber in 1964 was believed by Libet to permit a 350 ms period between no-preplanned movement RP and volitionary modification of said RP; Libet makes this assessment in his "Mind Time: The Temporal Factor in Consciousness."

    Baars' perspective is that there are two distinct time scales in which volition is exercised: Libet's millisecond level, and the process of choosing which is typically found in a range of several seconds: his book, "In the Theater of Consciousness," explains.

  • How to express a cycle mathematically or in formal logic?

    Best answer: Depends somewhat on the type of energy you're seeking to model.

    You'd likely find dependent variables governed by independent qualities. Math descriptions of the dependent variables would be primary equations.

    You'd likely have boundary conditions described in equations.

    You might have an initial condition or reference value.

    You'd have either holonomic or non-holonomic cycle dynamics.

    There is a type of directed graph that has movement but no cycling: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Directed_a... It is worth noting that this, when graphing spiritual ideas, is a kind of Jacob's Ladder.

  • What would make affirm an ever negating person?

    Best answer: Descartes negated "everything" ~ unto the realization that "I am negating;" thus he could not negate the "I am" of his "I am negating," hence "he am." The "affirmer" or "positer" of "there is nothing" therefore learns from Descartes... show more
    Best answer: Descartes negated "everything" ~ unto the realization that "I am negating;" thus he could not negate the "I am" of his "I am negating," hence "he am." The "affirmer" or "positer" of "there is nothing" therefore learns from Descartes that he or she is negating, hence he or she "is": ~ "I negate, therefore I am." Further down the philosophy chain, early Camus affirmed or posited (ahem) "suicide [self-murder] is the one truly serious [adolescent] philosophical problem." This is an example of "mind at the end of its human tether," aka "mortal mindedness," aka "self-hatred" (what Spielrein and Freud termed "death drives"), and many philosophers have resolved this typically generationally occurring existential psychologism. For example, Jules Lachelier moved past Schopenhauer and even 5-sense kantianism: "Being, as we conceive it, is not first a blind necessity, then a will, which is a priori enclosed by [categories of] perception, which [then becomes an existential] freedom."

    A logical note: persistent negation is a circular pattern ("not this, not that" a la Gautama Buddha's teaching re "this mortal mindedness, this materialism") which may be virtuous (levels of nirvana and Buddhahood) or vicious. If one is self-hating, that is a dysfunctional psychologism; seek counseling/religious guidance/psychology: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_h... http://www.betterhelp.com/start A humorous example of the latter or vicious circularism of negation ("Just say 'no'?"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v3etuIw...

  • Do things change all the time?

    Best answer: Motion = change. All things are in motion constantly, both cosmically and sub-atomically. Nothing in existence is at absolute rest.

  • Are good and evil opposites?

    Best answer: I understand evil is corruption of what God made. It is not just acts, the acts are there because the nature of corruption is there. And if I have this right, we are all corrupted, which is one reason why I stand against legalistic Christians so frequently. They seem to want people to think they are able to be less... show more
    Best answer: I understand evil is corruption of what God made. It is not just acts, the acts are there because the nature of corruption is there. And if I have this right, we are all corrupted, which is one reason why I stand against legalistic Christians so frequently. They seem to want people to think they are able to be less sinful than other people. They need to corrupt the Gospel in order to think that way.
