I believe, inexpert as I am, that the best would be to talk about all those subjects, that way you'll end up talking about everything that surrounds us and lies inside our heads, which is the kind of information I love. One normally always prefers to learn as much as possible about everything.
If you prefer to talk about only one, I'd say philosophy, extremely interesting for lots of people and you'll have a lot of freedom when writing.
Great essay. If it was written especially for us TWS daftlads? That would be the coolest thing in the world.
It's a very alluring idea, isn't it, that elements of all the really contemplative religions could be smushed together into progressive whole. I like that idea. Christianity (it seems to me) is definitely the most intellectual religion, and Buddhism can go suck it, but what it all means is anyone's guess. I used to dote on 'The Perennial Philosophy' by Aldous Huxley, and, yes, Teilhard DeChardin is The Man (I like that his books are as much scientific textbooks as religious treatese). But really? As I've got older, the most obvious statement that can be made about the religious world is that we're in some kind of claustrophobic, gnostic, worst-case-scenario, and you can be as intellectual or as stupid as you like, and everything will be the same. :disappointed_but_relieved_face:
@pe7erpark3r haha this is funny. Hmm we are still the masters of our fate and the captain of our souls. Our future will depend on what we did or what are the decisions we had from the past.. I believe our yesterday mold us to be ready and wise for tomorrow. We have the free will to be morally right or wrong , free will to believe or not, etc. From the moment we have survived the race when we're still spermatozoa til now that we decided not to end life, we are practicing our free will.
Greek? lol hahahah yeah i see the conundrum here...well, the simplest answer is that its subjective no matter how as you would claim the socially accepted notions and aspects form our opinions. It cant be objective because everyone has uniquely shaped aesthetic preferences that appeal to their idea of "beauty". i guess i think so. and society might mold us to some ideals and beliefs that are objective, beauty does not belong there. wouldnt you say? And also beauty has many aspects, as in natural pfhysical beauty, and nontangible beauty of the individual character of self. complicated lol
@Philosopher-19 don't get me wrong, yes all are ass holes including me and you, I am ain't Saint,all I care about me ,so make me completely egocentric and narsisst even I don't have empathy or sympathy I do not feel anything toward Any one I clearly admit this what I am and accept it for myself..do not mean that I have act exactly same way thinking all people are asshole, so I have brains to use, and be aware of my action and have understanding how I would I feel for myself some one act like asshole to me, so I will not like it so I will not do it t of my surroundings not to hurt anyone with my action.
I clearly mentioned in previous text that we have informative knowledge borrowed not experienced easy to end up with arguement so we agree for dis agree ..

@ᑕᖇiᗰᔕ-ᑎ Absolutely Human nature can be changed. And it changes in almost every person as he moves from his childhood to a grown person. There are some traits in your personality you change and some that you take through your whole life. And if it should be changed or not, it all depends on what personality we are talking about. Humans have evolved since time immemorial and will constantly continue to evolve. And in that evolution, certain changes take place which are directly or indirectly reflective of changing human nature.
"can kindness change the world?" In my opinion it has multiple times. The whole world at once? No. It seems to be gradual. Could it now? I don't think so. Kindness is linked to selflessness and it feels like the world is a bit selfish.
