    Default What are the big philosophical questions?

    What do you think the big philosophical questions are? Why? Do you think there are many or just one?

    The big questions are the ones without true answers.

    because people eventually can't find the answer or agree so they're like shit and create more, or trying to answer one leads to more questions and life is just a never ending game of 20 questions and sleep
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    The meta questions because there answers depend on how other questions are answered. Or what Nicodemus said.

    Default Consciousness: Origin, Being, and Right Under our Nose

    Some say the big philosophical question is what is consciousness?

    We do have an interesting and fertile hypothesis in The Origin of Consciousness by Julian Jaynes.

    And Being and Time by Martin Heidegger, discusses the nature of Being, which may be related to consciousness.

    On the other hand, we may be asking the wrong question.

    And it is a question very close to the bone, and too close to see, and right under our nose, as we are all conscious at some time during the day.

    And what question might this be? Or is simply, What is the question?

    For some reason I'm always reminded of Yoda when I read your posts.
