I have a lot going on in my head at the moment (surprising some might say for a blonde!).... but wierd stuff is happening

Actions lead to reactions. Is this what you mean or are you talking about metaphysical stuff here (e.g. pertaining to 'god' or other such nonsense beyond science)? If so, then the answer is no.

of course they hapen for a reason, if you get hit by a car in the middle of the road, the reason was because you where in the middle of the road and so was the car, like that sorta reason ya mean

Yes, actions lead to reactions. This is a good example. But the OP probably intended the question to be philosophical in nature. A kind of 'karma' thread..?

oh right, i suppose it depends on how you look at things really, whatever happens in life, whatever hapens leads to the next thing happening, and the next and the next

Ur right Liddle... I was referring to Karma ...


Thought so. In which case, my answer is most defintely no. It's just another 'religious' idea from an unscientific belief system (derived from Hindu I believe?). Not very different from the similarly contrived notion of heaven and hell - or reincarnation - or pigs can fly :)

I believe in solipsism and entropy, therefore you are all a figment of a non-existant mind that cannot put anything together correctly :-P , a pretty lonely belief system!

isn't the second a type of scientifc measurement system? The former is certainly a belief system, but based on laws of complexity etc. Certainly a lot closer to science than religion...

you mean its gonna happen no matter what you do?

Liddle I'm just playing. Actually I'm a Roman Candle by birth, but I (ironically) don't believe in fate, or a 'plan' or anything like that (actually think entropy is correct, as you quite rightly said is science), and solipsism is probably just escapism for me. It's much easier to believe that the whole world goes away when you shut the door, as you have no proof of it's existance other than what you can see, thus comforting! Would be hard to get a group of us together though, each of us believing that we aren't there an all hahaha!

I was also Christened a Roman Candle (lol), but thankfully have been able to break free from that and think through my own understandings. Have even managed to break the intergenerational chain thing that keeps these belief systems in place by having children of my own and not baptising them (would be a pretty hypocritcal thing for an atheist to do, right?!). As for solipsism, as I said, I understand where it comes from as a lot of my work dabbles in social constructivism, so fragmented identities etc are part of that. But solipsism is a bit extreme for me, especially as my other foot is in the realist camp - or at least that camp which subscribes to the kind of 'this world' views put fwd by Pierre Bourdieu.

Haven't actually read any of Bourdieu work, and in truth I'm a layman when it comes to philosophy. Solipsism is extreme, and I do doubt it occasionaly. I'm probably still at the stage where I am deciding what is real and what isn't, however my life motto was written by Sartre; "Hell is other people". I think when you apply this to all religion, we see that in fact their notion of hell is based on what is all around them. This belief in solipsism is a strange one, as I always feel like I'm just observing what I'm laying out in my head, not actually participating as such. Still get the old Catholic guilt now and then though, and I hope what I believe is actually wrong. You mentioned fractured identities, this is something my ex accused me of having, when in actual fact I'm just confused hahaha!

Sorry got caught in a Halo 3 battle! Hehe - I like your honesty! Wish I saw more of it. But in fact, it's a serious point isn't it? Once you are honest about confusion, it opens the way towards more learning and understanding. I read sartre when I was about 21 - interesting stuff, and maybe laid the foundations for my current thinking. Nice to have thinking in the form of novels too. I completely agree with the quote (and didn't remember it). It makes a lot of sense. But I do recommend Bourdieu, because he is able to find the middle ground between the camp represented by Satre and the extremism found at the other end of the spectrum. He thinks in terms of fields of activity and the competition for capital in those fields -- how people strategise to accumulate capital, whether it be economic capital, intellectual capital, or social capital for example. It offers a very satisfying answer to the 'vacuum' that can be left when gets over religion, and it sounds as if it would fit the very practical viewpoints you seem to have. We should talk more about this. Even if I don't find time for a while I'll bookmark the thread and check back when I can :thumbsup:

*waits for liddle to explain everything* :p


Sorry Liddle has virtually no knowledge or understanding of Karma beyond the basic definition. The sum total of my knowledge on the subject is less than that contained in your post!
