Quote from: Baruch on September 08, 2020, 05:15:24 PMIndividualism works, provided it isn't sociopathic, more will enjoy itSociopathy doesn't work, its self destructive, no one will enjoy it
Quote from: Vulcan on September 10, 2020, 09:30:52 PMI think that genuine (Thoreauvian/Emersonian) individualism is necessarily non-sociopathic. A true sociopath is socially involved, dependant on social interaction to enact his sociopathic behaviors and abuses on others.A true individualist eschews involvement with society. A sociopath is best described as an interpersonally destructive person. In order to be interpersonally destructive, one must first be interpersonal.

Quote from: Unbeliever on September 19, 2020, 09:28:23 PMI could be convinced of an eternal return, but even if it were true it would matter not a whit, for without continuity of memory it's NOT the same ''us'' as these lives we have now, even if those lives are exactly identical to those we're living now.
Quote from: Cassia on September 20, 2020, 06:07:17 AMTrying to imagine an actual mechanism for some sort of return. Certainly it can't be related to the actual molecules and stored energy that comprise your body when your systems fail and decompose. The simplest parts of you are re-purposed after the complexity of you is greatly reduced to basic elements and simple compounds. But what does that leave of your actual essence? A soul? Don't even know what that might be. A 'floating mind' with no physical enabler? Got a long way to go before I consider this proposal.
