What is considered your way of living? "Everybody needs philosophy" as Ayn Rand had explained it, it is the choices that we make that creates or destroys man. It may be objectivist, exsitentialist, nishilist, atheist, communist, capitalist, et cetera. Express to everybody your way of thinking.

Everyone is welcome to participate: intellectuals, anti-intellectuals, activists, artists, thinkers, philosophy students/graduates, psychologist, or even just a common Juan. Unload what you have here!

Detachment is one form of philosophy that I had taken for myself.

That is the philosophy of awaiting death because it is the ultimate knowledge.

When we die, we will know the whole truth whether we were all living a lie or whatever...

So dark. But life is more truthful than death itself.

Death indeed is a release from the bondage of our human frailties.

Indeed. But before death, it would be best to live before death comes.

My philosophy - "We mortals live to become miserable"
That's because when life has no challenge, then it is meaningless. Why care to seek for a life's meaning if there already are problems? Our first problem is 'how to sustain life', next is 'how to make use of the spare time above from the time spent in sustaining life', and third is 'how to make more time to use above from the time spent in sustaining life and the time used to make use and using spare time.'

I guess this is enough reason to live.

Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


what you say is true, it is better that you will experience life itself first for you will never accept death and the freedom it offers from the bondage of suppression, poverty, and all other bad things that is happening in this world.

but then not everything that is happening while we are living are all bad. it gives us the opportunity also to love, and be loved. kaya nga you should live life to the fullest and if possible do things for the betterment of this world small or big things will make a change. :rolleyes:

What holds true for me is that being a student of life will cost you so much tuition, but at least it's applied learning. (Ironically, I am more adept at abstract reasoning, making me a "dropout". heheheh.)

Life is indeed a learnig arena, it is not just confined in the four corners of the classroom. Ah, the pros and cons of a sophist.

I've got so much room for improvement, because of my specious reasoning. (When will I ever learn? heheheh.)

Is, is. :)

Transcendental idealism! Kant was never wrong!

But I tend to move between idealism and realism...I'd like to think I'm not as mature as some people see me as.

agree. :)

that's the whole point of life...the contrast between what ought and what is. the struggle of course is to either dissolve the dichotomy or reinforce it further. :)

Dissolving the dichotomy is fun, after which...nada. Zip. Boooo-ring. I'd rather drive an even bigger wedge between the two, and watch by the sidelines as philosophers slug it out. :P

what if u espouse the 3rd way? neither u maintain idealism nor would u accept realism...

u reject that "ought" of things in themselves...

but u won't accept the "is" of things in themselves either...

rather, u'd drop everything else and take the "me" perspective defining reality by full recognition of your own biases, tendencies, and self-worth.
