I try to avoid thinking in linear causality. everything is webbed, even your feet.
If you think you fully understand the causality of a situation you are missing alot {insert witty quote about the butterfly effect}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_effect

linear dynamics only exist in this strange fantasy world they call math.

I like how philosophers can say that they don't know how something works in a way that makes them sound profound. I'm surprised that the word emergence was not mentioned.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy says that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42.

i thought that according to HHGG the answer was continued existence?(hint: its in the actions of the computer, not in its words)

i think aneristic is the ordered part of the window through wich you percieve reality.[i know its not neccesarily related to Reality but i wouldn't know how to look outside without a window.]
logic is a subgroup of order.
causality can not exist without logic.
i do not know how to think without the concept of causality (explanation of causality: the idea that percieved things can be caused by other perceived things.(sort of))

i tend to skip thoughtsteps so sue me :P

and i see i have to practice using interpunction n'stuff.



hmmm don't think i clarified anything but fuck it.

hahaha 000 that will not be translated well by any translation software :P
i was wondering if it would be fun to teach the foreigners here(damn you allochtonen!) to curse like a dutchman.

example: krijg de vinkahkanker aan je linkertepel jij geestelijk gehandicapt cliniclown, stik in de pus die uit je onstoken cholera-anus druipt!

or something else including diseases, ill leave the translation of that to volunteers :P
acording to researchTM the dutch are the only ones to use diseases for cursing.

without causality thinking becomes very hard for me so i'll hold on to that illusion or not.

Yes, virtue ethics does suffer from moral relativism unless a standard is agreed upon. Since we have no such standard, Ratatosk's comment is quite insightful. This perhaps is the hub of the idea of Aristotle's seeing society as a basis for morality [right/wrong], although not necessarily ethics[what constitutes a good life].


just a tiny addition: it is good that we have no such standard, those nasty things lead to power-centralisation and we all know where that leads kids! men in silly hats telling you you can't have nasty buttsecks.

i haven't seen the ethics point of view so here goes me

"The important feature of this account of what it takes to be a person, namely that a person is a creature capable of valuing its own existence, is that it also makes plausible an explanation of the nature of the wrong done to such a being when it is deprived of existence."

blatantly stolen from 'Wonderwoman and Superman The ethics of human biotechnology'  this was about abortion originally but i thought it was also applicable here.
