    Not a fan of intuition made into word, then? This thinking and presuming is the painting of the picture.

    "Also, I'm not going to flesh out how such a thing might even be possible, because, you know, Ni doesn't work that way. Still, this makes me better than a simple feeler-believer."

    Towards the end, I get quite into how such a thing is not just possible, it's necessary.

    OMG.
    You think you have conclusively proven something the greatest minds in philosophy and science have been unable to reach agreement about for millennia?

    And you do so by.... quoting your own blog...?

    Michty me! I had no idea we were in the presence of such genius.

    You were once banned from a thread for calling people who were suggesting alternative types and theoretical variations "fucking retards."
    Your dogmatic thinking is so worn out after all these years, it can't even manage an erection.

    Good luck with that.

    When I first read this thread, I thought the first poll option sounded more "mystical." I agree with Victor that meaning is something we create after the fact by stitching together events into cohesive patterns.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    C) Things happen > humanity invents reasons.

    But there is most likely a middle ground I can accept where stuff does happen because of something else. But the concept of reason is ours.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
