  1. According to Hegel, the main characteristic of Rational unity was that it evolved through and manifested itself in contradiction and negation. Contradiction and negation have a dynamic quality that at every point in each domain of reality—consciousness, history, philosophy, art, nature, society—leads to further development until a rational unity is reached that preserves the contradictions as phases and sub-parts by lifting them up (Aufhebung) to a higher unity. This whole is mental because it is mind that can comprehend all of these phases and sub-parts as steps in its own process of comprehe
  2. "Fact" do not always constitute widely shared knowledge, but they are always 'public' in the sense of being accessible in principle to public scrutiny and not subject to the vagaries of individual ways of thinking. An individual is the ensemble of the social relation. Reasonable is a physical action but an action that implies thinking. The judgement "it is reasonable" can be taken apply to someone's thinking. The need to always distinguish between "knowledge" and "judgement," between knowing and thinking, have exercised an enormous influence on English language. Internal contradiction of an i
  3. 'The body like a lump of foam: The feelings like a water bubble; Perseption like a mirage; Volitional activities like a plantain tree; And Consciousness like jugglery.' (Samyutta Nikaya)
  4. The words used by Jawaharlal Nehru to describe Mahatma Gandhi 'The essence of his teaching was fearlessness and truth, and action allied to these, always keeping the welfare of the masses in view.'
  5. Freedom of individual is essential for democratic movements. Fear insists us to overcome the dictatorship and they're getting ruling the state notoriously. In this situation, do you think that fear from freedom is sucking us? prolongs from generation to generation?
  6. Fearlessness may be a gift but perhaps more precious is the courage acquired through endeavour, courage that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one's actions, courage that could be described as 'grace under pressure' - grace which is renewed repeatedly in the face of harsh, unremitting pressure.....Daw Aung San Suu Kyi Financial system of a country is the most important to stand in the global market today. However, this is true for those, which has already been independent. On the other spectrum of those countries, minority ruled by communists and military regim
  7. If i say God is a creation of Living beings (or life is a creation of God), what is your choice? There is a cause you to forget everything that you already knew. If there is no cause, you won't forget even you want to forget that thing, for example, your parents. You can't forget them without any causes. There are lots of causes even in a single life. Like Tarak said, Alzheimers Disease makes the patient to lose memory gradually. So, causes make you stay alive and dead in this world.
  8. Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu a devata addressed the Blessed One with a verse: Living in the wilderness, staying peaceful, remaining chaste, eating just one meal a day: why are their faces so bright & serene? [The Buddha:] They don't sorrow over the past, don't long for the future. They survive on the present. That's why their faces are bright & serene. From longing for the future, from sorrowing over the past, fools wither away like a green reed cut down. Diversities of thinking make human stand in the wilderness of thoughts. We're bo
  9. Welcome Amrit, You've made a good speculation. Anyway, are you an analyst of religion or a religious person? As myself a buddhist, if you believe in Buddhism, don't try to speculate it. Anyone can say Buddhists are selfish, but i don't care. Liberation is for my own and no one but only i can take it. I posted about Buddhism in this theology forum when i was introduced it. After i've read Buddhism texts, i realised that it's no use to post about Buddhism here and understand how "ignorance' is very important for me. And the other thing is that i've learn what i should be. The more i know, the mo
  10. We experienced them before so many thimes if you know the Buddhism. There are circles of lives and deaths. We're seperated in understanding. Anyway, nevermind, everyone has his own path.
  11. Life is combination of matter and mind. Life is restructuring energy. Matter is energy and so is mind. Our body is vacuum. Matter is vacuum? Or vacuum is matter? Whatever, vacuum is energy. . . . . . . . . Death is seperation of matter and mind. Death lets go energy. (Energy can't be destroyed nor created) Matter turns to energy and so does mind. . . . . .
  12. Thing-in-itself Dialetic God and nature God or nature life is suffering Above all, choose a correct way! Good luck!
  13. A genius is a person with distinguished mental prowess. This can manifest either as a foremost intellect, or as an outstanding creative talent. The term also applies to one who is a polymath, or someone skilled in many mental areas. The term specifically applies to mental rather than athletic skills, although it is also colloquially used to denote the possession of a superior talent in any field; e.g., Pelé may be said to have a genius for football or Gandhi for diplomacy. Norman Bethune is a canadian genius. He sacrificed more than a human can do. There are lots of Genius who are selfish to
