    Epiphanies

    Greetings folks. I would like to initiate a thread devoted to posting various epiphanies or other thoughts. I believe this appropriate for the philosophy section as such an activity may inspire philosophical discourse and some of the presentations may be presented representative of logical formula. I encourage all to participate/share.

    The following is a list of notations which were scribed by myself, relevant to personal observances. Some are intended to be facetious.

    Let us equate life with suffering
    If it is cruel to prolong suffering
    then it ought to be considered cruel
    to prolong life. - Seth Reeder

    Some would question whether or not peoples are adequately represented in their representative societies.
    Consider:
    Most people are fools
    Most leaders are equally foolish
    Therefore, the people are adequately represented. - Seth Reeder

    One can consider a disease to be that which invades and inflicts harm.
    Mankind has done little more than invade and inflict harm.
    Under such circumstances mankind is a disease.
    A cure is warranted. - Seth Reeder

    More oft than not I state with regards to myself: I ain't got no sense but nonsense. - Seth Reeder

    By definition democracy is rule by the people.
    Most people lack in wisdom and integrity.
    Evidently democracy is rule by the impaired. - Seth Reeder

    What is it that sets man apart from allegedly lesser apes?
    Some say chromosomes. Others cite the capacity to reason.
    If it be the capacity to reason then many a man is nowt but a lesser ape. - Seth Reeder

    And Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gifted it to man. What did man do with this gift but burn himself? - Seth Reeder

    People are oft to state: Set the bar high in life as to achieve thy dreams.
    I state: Set the bar low. This way when ye run into it ye get nowt more than a bruised shin as opposed to a concussion. - Seth Reeder

    I am a moose
    All moose are men
    Therefore, I am a man. - Seth Reeder

    Listen carefully to those around ye and ye shall be disappointed in what ye hear. The voice of the mob is the voice of a fool. Listen carefully to the self and ye shall be disappointed in what ye hear. The voice of the self is the voice of bias. Listen carefully for the voices of wise men and ye shall hear nowt but silence. - Seth Reeder

    If there is one thing I know to be true it be: I know a whole lot about nothing. - Seth Reeder

    'If 'nothing', as a concept, exists... is it really nothing or is it now something?'

    ^Can't remember where I heard that one.

    Similar arguments I have seen while studying philosophy at university, "if one can conceive of something it becomes" such arguments had been used in old times to argue in favor of the existence of god/gods (I state this not to reflect my own personal positions on such arguments, I state it to rely what others have said in lecture).
