"The inside of your head must be rather like a newspaper office. It is connected with the outside world by nerves which play the part of telegraph wires. Messages from the outside world arrive in code along these wires; the whole substratum of fact is contained in these code messages. Within the office they are made up into a presentable story, partly by legitimate use of accumulated experience but also with an admixture of journalistic imagination; and it is this free translation of the original messages that our consciousness becomes aware of."
- Arthur Eddington (New Pathways in Science)

  1. Is the word.....itd, or it'd..... a real word by Le Nozze di Figaro in General Philosophy
    I saw this in another post somewhere, and checked it out, and to my amazement Webster's classifies this as a proper word, can this be real, or is it preposterous. Webster's says that it is a contraction of it would, I think Webster was drinking.
  2. What is the human soul, and if you know by Le Nozze di Figaro in Philosophy of Religion
    how do you know what the soul is. I can't even say that I do not believe in this, because I would have to have some idea what it is the I do not believe in.

  5. The Art of Aphorism and Nietzsche's Blind Passion by anyone in Philosophy of Religion

In the dissatisfaction of his carnal art Nietzsche must march on with a will to power (master morality) that is nothing but a monster's voice within him. What could the art of his philosophy be about after all? Merging the ani...
