  • What is a pointless question?

    Best answer: It's an accusation that allows those who have either no answer or no imagination to attempt to avoid being "found out" by turning attention on the asker. It's misdirection. Sometimes it's a sort of double misdirection meant to make the one answering appear "clever". In other words,... show more
    Best answer: It's an accusation that allows those who have either no answer or no imagination to attempt to avoid being "found out" by turning attention on the asker.

    It's misdirection. Sometimes it's a sort of double misdirection meant to make the one answering appear "clever".

    In other words, it's a big fat lie. There are no pointless questions. Even if the question merely informs one about the nature of the asker or the one being asked, knowing someone is the type of person with whom you want no interaction is useful information and useful information isn't pointless.

  • Is freedom or liberty born from order or chaos?

    Best answer: "Free" developed as an expression of "beloved"; those who were beloved were "free;" those who were enslaved were not free (Old English "freo", "not in bondage"). "Liberty" developed as a 14th century description of the noble and magnanimous; by the 15th... show more
    Best answer: "Free" developed as an expression of "beloved"; those who were beloved were "free;" those who were enslaved were not free (Old English "freo", "not in bondage"). "Liberty" developed as a 14th century description of the noble and magnanimous; by the 15th century, the "bad" or profligate aspect was given in the "libertine" sense.

    "Order" developed of the weaving of fabrics and other such "fitting together" techniques; "chaos" originally meant "wide open," later associated with disorder.

    Mastery produces agency, or the ability to make and create within Energy order. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_of_needs The "wide open spaces" or a "blank canvas" offer opportunity for good creativity, which is always reflective of mastery, not of psychologistic tension-displacing pseudo- or decadent "art," etc. Those works of "free expression" that are evanescently popular typically play to the gestalts and tensions of a more temporary, more chaotic, mise en scene; those works that stand the test of time and changing cultures are those that engage with more beloved, profound, and intricate aspects of human being: "Don Quixote," "Romeo and Juliet," "Ninth Symphony" of Beethoven, and the like.

    A second dimension re "freedom" or "energy in joy": as any given activity accelerates, deepens, becomes more intricate and/or profound, e.g. figure skating or ballet, the most elementary freedoms of being flower, as a rose blossom or a ballet develops more degrees of freedom per its petals or the first five positions; the more disciplined or mastered are the "first-dimension elements"--the triangle, the square, the circle--the better the degrees of freedom in higher dimensions; and, if not well-handled, these first-dimensional elements of be-ness, at greater energies, self-limit per "discords within energy."

    A third consideration: Energy is geometrized, stepped-down, per divine Mind; this process is notable in the first stages of the Universe--the highest "enthalpy" (so-called "soup") is found in the first "three minutes", with increasing entropy even as the energy continues to geometrize and build upon its basic units (quarks, photons, electrons, gluons, etc.): http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/OJTA2dev/ojta/c2c/early/bigbang/first3min_tl.html Thus the whole "Concept" of Energy develops as exceedingly precise "first dimensional" elements, thence unto protons, neutrons, thence unto atoms, thence unto first-generation nuclear fusion stars built rather precisely per various levels and stages of condensation of atoms. Thus "freedom" is universally built upon ever-more precise elements, until the "big bang" or "God as Energy director" stage is contemplated, in logical science and/or in awe.

    A fourth consideration: if a given structure or matrix becomes corrupted, either by improper/intrinsic building limitations, and/or by wrong choices/wrong desires (parable of "Fall" from "Eden"), the oppression or loss of true freedom may necessitate a liberation from such dense and unfree "false hierarchy" misqualifications.

    A fifth consideration: if God, and Soul-individuation, then it is likely, per the attained religious, that precise and pure Soul-building qualities, "divine virtues" such as justice, wisdom, purity, and the like, are lessons to be learned and mastered in the physical universe, so that when the soul takes flight beyond the physical octave, she has more of the God-developed qualities of which she was intended to elect and develop, a unique pattern developed of similar basic harmonious Soul energy elements, much as snowflakes are beautiful each in their own right, albeit all built of H2O molecules.

  • What’s it called when you can’t prove the negativity of something because it never happened?

    It never occurred because it was never allowed to occur; it was never allowed to happen. So although you KNEW it would have been bad, you have no way to PROVE it would have been bad.

    Best answer: Some people believe that morality is an injunction to 'be nice' to other people. Others, seeing that an unconditionnal commitment to helping your peers invites others to take advantage of you will advocate selfishness in a profoundly radical sense. Neither group get it.

    Obviously, if you want to live around other human beings, looking for mutual benefit and taking on your shoulders some of the burden of others is going to make your life both easier and better. If you're never disposed to provide support to anyone else without asking for something in return, nobody in their right mind would want to spend time with you or live around you. Everyone can get in trouble, everyone can make mistakes and everyone can need free help. Pure selfishness simply is careless or outright malevolence parading as wisdom.

    Now, let's turn to the more complicated problem. Why should not always be nice? First of all, because some people are evil. This is not a figure of speech: some people actually want to cause as much damage as they can, in as short a period of time as they can. You have to screen those people out of your life. Second of all, because unconditionnal provision of help invites damageable behavior. If they can always count on you, many otherwise well intended people will simply afford you as little help as possible in return. It is the obvious temptation because, given your behavior, it is what would get them the most out of the situation.

    Third of all, because being strict and prefering yourself over other people is not systematically unjustified. Anger and aggressivity are within your capacity as nature's insurance policy against the aggression of other people. Moreover, I guarantee you that if you do not pick a moment to signal that you will tolerate being stepped on, your body will pick a moment and it will not leave a memo. The first time someone does something irritating, agressivity might be expressed as a warning or a simple change in the tone of your voice. However, if you let yourself get stepped on constantly, the part of you that screams to be heard, that wants to tell others to quit it is getting stepped constantly and, when you decide to let it, it might lash out extremely violently. If you think that you cannot get into a blinding rage and kill someone, think twice. You can, you would and this possibility should scare the crap out of you. It should be scary enough to force you to demand respect.

    You cannot possibly gauge the necessity to do well and get the measure of aggressivity right if you cannot appreciate how sadistic and dangerous you could become, were you wronged one time too many. It is the fear to not ever be that person that will compel you to do right by others and demand without fault that others do right by you.

    Best answer: have you any idea at all what kind of world it would be today if you did? - cos I dont

    the ONLY thing I know is that it would be a hellova lot different from the one we got

    For all I know the "new" one could be a hellova lot worse

    Just think - millions died as a result of what hitler did - if he had not existed THEY and all their descendants would be alive today

    Those scientists who escaped from hitler to build the atom bomb would have stayed in europe

    Maybe one of the descendants could have built the atom bombs in europe- Stalin invades europe and captures them THEN the whole world becomes communist. OR a nuclear war breaks out and kills more than hitler did

    Thats the problem with what ifs - change one thing and nobody has a clue how that would affect the future from that point. ALL we know is what DID happened, ,after that change ANYTHING could happen
    could be that one of those desc

  • What is a good reason to success in life?

    Best answer: Good question, but difficult to answer. Different people measure success in different ways. To me, finding a lasting love, making that personal life-long connection is success.
