Coexistant reality and proving existance
    #1294911 - 02/10/03 01:33 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

our everyday life consists, in my opinion, of constant message and information, just as communication but more rehtorical. this information gathering is further proof of the the physical and metaphysical realities co existing.
however this could also just be imagination applied presently or near it.which is harder to disprove, what do you think?

well philosophy says alot about not believing the senses. descartes meditations 1-6 talks alot about doubting the senses such as these hypothesis. the dream hypothesis and the evil genius. how do you know what we are experincing now is not a dream? is it possible yes probable no. also with the evil genius that has all the powers of god is just deceiving all our lives and we live in a matrix type world so nothing is what it seems. highly unlikely but probable. but still we exsist and that is certain. checkout descartes.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

Yes I agree with Socratesmind there on Descartes.
If I am correct the book is Descartes Discourse on Method.. Went and looked for my copy its floating around here somewhere but in there he talks about things are only real because our senses tell us they are. It goes much further into it and many other topics. A five star book to read and the discourse isnt that long.
