To be CLD. But that is not a miracle. I've done what no man in humanity has done in being me.
QUOTE

If you don't know God then you might say this, but the statement is only relative to what you make of it and in this case it is meaningless.
QUOTE
colin leslie dean has got rid of death in the world

That remains to be seen. Has he raised any of the dead yet?
QUOTE

Good for him but, that is only a relative idea from someone who may or may not be Dean posting hundreds of meaningless post on internet forums using multiple avatars.

Words do not contain power tho they can reflect the infinite from which they come as does the image of God in any man. You exalt Dean but you must also exalt all choices and all men to really know power and God

I would never say that death lacks life because I do know what life is and I also have never read any of Deans works. You are being presumptuous by saying no one knows what life is.
You should get out more and find and experience the meaning of life.

When it comes to my death, I won't know when I'm dead by definition. If I know I am not dead, then I know I am alive.

so
you could be written of as dead if bush decides to redefine dead - ie any one who disagrees with him must be by his legal definition be a zombie thus dead

One in a coma is dead?
One sleeping is dead?

I know what life is, I have experienced it; I do not know what death truely is, but I have some extrapolation from my life. Thought to me is definitely an aspect of life, as well as ability to reproduce and metabolize. A rock can never experience death, because it lacks a mind and senses. I have the potential to experience death, because I am currently experiencing life, but my concept of death is only based on observation, not personal experience--THAT DOES NOT MEAN DEATH DOES NOT EXIST.

Death is the absence of life. There are two types of life:physical and spiritual.

Scientists have already determined the criteria that must be met to claim something to be "living".

Spiritual life is our ability to percieve the world through our senses, and our ability to decifer the data our sences provide through cognition.

Characteristics for physical life:

Organized structures that are composed of heterogenous chemicals - in units of "cells"

Metabolism: chemical and energy transformations

Maintain internal conditions separated from an outside environment: homeostasis

Growth: conversion of materials from the environment into components of organism

Reaction to select stimuli, physiologically and/or behaviorally

Reproduction: making copies of individuals via the mechanism of genetic transfer: sections of DNA
molecules that contain instructions for organization & metabolism

Evolution: change in characteristics of individuals, resulting from mutation & natural selection - these result in adaptations

Why do you use words if they end in self contradiction?

Have you ever thought why that specific idea to post this topic here came across your mind and why you decided during this days advertise in a specific and sometimes offensive mode Mr. Dean's meaningless philosophy here when Hurricane Dean rushes over Mexico and America?

Remember, recent scientific investigations claim that hurricanes somehow can be alive creatures. So Zhan Batist Emanuel Zorg's behavior from the 5th Element movie can be quite realistic.

I think you might need to live a while longer and do some real living above and beyond the call of Dean and his meaningless manuscripts.

No, just some books are replaced by the movies, you know some complex patterns of thinking generated by Hollywood are quite specific and can be conceptually well utilized.
You see those movies define new terminology and ontology, by few words – terms it is possible very easily express very complex ideas. Look:

Are you sure Mr. Andersen?
Yes Maaaster.
May the Force stay with you.
Yes my young Jedai.
To truck the ruler Sith.
Ohhh, Hallow Mr. Harry Potter.
The battle for Narnia is ready to begin.
Gabriel, you - half-bread do not understand us.
Get up Teoden the son of the Rokhan.
One following Charlotte’s cobweb can definitely find the treasure Mr. Gates.
Harry Krishna Mr. Potter!
Howl will never serve you Saruman, I mean Saliman.
The Invasion of Lord Asriel’s armies is inevitable.
The Empire always strikes back.
And under stars bind them.
The doors of the Unseen University stay close for the ugly dwarfs.
Transformers transformed the face of Christianity on Patmos isle.

If there be time I will demonstrate how Hollywood terminology can be used to express extremely complex ideas on the nature of ridicule and even create new Religion.

Just because there exists no complete definition of 'living things' or 'life' at present does not mean that they do not exist.
You may be attempting to embarass scientists into spending more time and money into a better and complete such definition, but you fool nobody into thinking that there is no difference between living and non-living things.
Who do you think you are writing to on this website, non-living beings, or figments of your imagination?

The computer simulation theory of the world is easily dismissed via Occam's Razor. A world containing a computer to simulate a world is much more complicated and difficult to explain than the apparent physical world we find our selves in. If two competing explanations serve, then the simpler one is the better explanation. Experience is due to the things that it appears to be due to: living human bodies with brains on a planet orbiting the sun in a small galaxy far far away.

Occams razor is crap

yet another example of views ending in meaninglessness

http://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Talk:Occam's_Razor

QUOTE
I am not an advocate of Ockham's razor. I don't consider it a good reason to prefer scientific explanations over supernatural explanations. And Ockham's is of no real use in science because the primary goal of scientific explanations is to predict phenomena before the fact, not after the fact. Any dang fool can predict reality after the fact. Ockham's has no predictive power because the "simplest" explanation is no more likely to have any better predictive power than the more complicated explanation. That is because the concept of "simplest" is a purely subjective call. And there is only one way to find out which explanation is better at predicting before the fact. And that is to find predictions that differ and then look in nature. Ockham's is a philosophical principle that is only of use for armchair realists that don't have any compunction to actully look at nature. At best it is a bias for concocting explanations but has no effect on how well they work before the fact. Scientific explanations are not getting simpler over time, no matter how important you may think Ockham's is



QUOTE
There is a reference to the use of Ockham's Razor for preferring the Copernican model over the Ptolemaic model. This may become yet another fine example where philosophers in their determination to show how philosophy drives science got both the history and the science wrong. It would be great if philosophers would stick to what they know best, philosophy, and leave science to the scientists and history to the historians.

It turns out that what convinced people was the Rudolphin tables created by Kepler. And not because they were simpler but because they did a much better job at computing the ephemeredes than either the Ptolemaic or Copernican system. Philosophers completely ignore that the Copernican system still included epicycles and they also create a historically inaccurate and false dichotomy by ignoring that there were actually three competing explanations. It would be nice if philosophers actually engaged in scholarship when they try to foist lame philosophical principles like Ockham’s razor onto science and leave science to the scientists and history to the historians


QUOTE
Perhaps it has never occurred to you but Ockham's is a statement of criteria of preference for explanations. Its advocates like to assert that it is used by science. However science has no need for it because it has much better and more effective criteria of preference. I can understand why philosophers might find it compelling because philosophy is an ancient and historic tradition that does not use the criteria of modern science and without some principle like Ockham's they would be forced to admit that all they have is personal preference (As if that was not what they were actually doing anyway.). Science uses criteria which I have restated often enough, it has experiment on reality and it prefers explanations that win in fidelity and predictability, not simplicity. Simplicity is nice, but hardly a criteria of preference in scientific explanations. A striking example is Einstein’s aversion to QM. He seemed to think that reality should conform to some notion he had of what was "simple" but was not able to produce any explanation that worked any better. That is why QM is still the current preferred explanation. Few that have studied it would say it was "simple", but it has the annoying property of predicting reality before the fact very well. And if anyone were to come up with an explanation that did a better job, no matter how "simple" or "complex" it would then become the preferred explanation. Ockham's is as much use to science as screen doors on a submarine. Yes there are a few instances were it may come in handy but it is hardly necessary. As such it would be refreshing if advocates of Ockham's would demonstrate the honesty and fortitude to apply it to Ockham's. At least when it comes to claims that it is an important criterion of preference for science.

There are no proves that the Matrix exists except crazy ideas of Wachovski brothers.

The Matrix is not a philosophic category of thinking.

Life is a process which has starting point and end point, some claim that there is life after death in some parallel world. That is all what we know.

The experiment is the criteria of truth in ANY PROPER philosophy yet. Eventually we will come to new methods of reality investigation.

Even meaningless phrase somehow is meaningful, all depends on context.

Philosophy, in particular Analytic Philosophy defines, clarifies, specifies, verifies with recent scientific investigations meanings of Words, Concepts, Categories, Patterns of Thinking etc and other so to say Linguistic Tools of the human brain for the reality description via which we later construct more complex ideas and judge about the world surrounding us and try to precept our own nature and our own self.

Alright, so lets create a hypothetical scenario here, which will result in a simple question.

First: Majority of people who post on this forum know what Analytic Philosophy is.

Second: your phrase ‘have not told us’ means that you are many – numerous in number, so who are the others except you Nightrover?

Third: Here some definitions of the word meaningless

mean•ing•less adj. Having no meaning or significance. --mean“ing•less•ly adv. --mean“ing•less•ness n.

SYNONYMS: meaningless, senseless, mindless, irrational, pointless, purposeless. These adjectives mean lacking import, direction, or purpose. Meaningless and senseless emphasize absence of meaning, significance, or motivation: a verbose but meaningless explanation; senseless violence. Mindless applies to that which lacks the will and thinking capacity characteristic of a conscious being: “the shrieking of the mindless wind” (John Greenleaf Whittier). “We must dare to think about ‘unthinkable things’ because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless” (J. William Fulbright). Irrational implies a lack of accord with or a lack of reason or sound judgment: “It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears” (Louis D. Brandeis). Pointless and purposeless stress the absence of an aim or end: The host bored his guests with a long and pointless anecdote. She feels that her life is purposeless and empty.

Forth: If you want someone to read Mr. Dean’s book, then you should advertise it in a way people feel there is some spark in it. The way you advertise the book does not incline people to read it. For example, in the same way Robert Bruce Baird was advertising his books on this forum; though if he cared a little to present things more clear for readers on this forum, then, definitely, some interesting things could be located in Robert’s books esp Diverse Druid. So it is a Paradox. Sometimes meaningless things can help to gather the mosaic – Everything helps concept in the '"revival"-reincarnation theory".

Meaningless form of representation of Mr.Dean’s book makes it meaningless to read.

I suggest you to refer for some concepts definition to Wiki and/or Encyclopedia Britanica.

Rubbish is what you write and what I quoted is the American Heritage Dictionary.

Listen Nightrover, Rick is right, life is something we are investigating, gradually we approach to understanding of its essence. One day the image of that essence will be clear for us.
It is very simple. The research goes on. And we all in the quest of the truth.

Now another question: what a hell do you want of us? We are not going to read Dean's book it is boring.

And it is time to stop the flooding.
