Quotations January 2018

"My impression is Dark Ages are a time of peace of mind and emotional wellbeing. Seriously, it may as well be the American golden age." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Some things work, and some things don’t work, by any real definition. That is morality. And it really IS morality, because a real definition will tell you what is good and bad, once you know what works and what doesn’t work by that definition. If we need more that one definition, there is more than one morality." ---Nathan Coppedge

"If you are thinking of writing an article, I recommend giving perpetual motion some professional treatment. It is hard to say it the right way, because there have been so many con artists and plain bad ideas. These ideas actually have evidence behind them, and they’re simple enough that if you have real hope of knowing how they work in conventional physics, your face should brighten, and you should think I’m going crazy, but then you should think, MAYBE… HE’S RIGHT!"

"Everything is limited by self concept, but self-concept is the ultimate realization." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Nothingness is limited by sensations. Sensations are limited by ideas. Ideas are limited by emotion. Emotion is limited by significance. Each thing achieves its own limit without always fully realizing the limit of what follows. Without any longer weighing the full significance of where it came from."---Nathan Coppedge

"Everyone is God. Everyone is a great idea." ---Nathan Coppedge

“If I were just ugly, they'd steal the idea, if I were just respectable-looking, they'd make up their mind. I'm the very worst person to invent perpetual motion who could actually do it.” --Nathan Coppedge

"It behooves Gödel to make a point he cannot make if he defeats coherence. He cannot defeat an absolute system without being absolute. And, there will be no absolute disproof while offering any kind of evidence." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Unless there is an omniscient God, there is no omnipotent force stopping you. Humans consistently overrate the omniscience of others that would allow them to control you. Human free will is likely extremely limited but real.
If we say the universe is infinite, we are committing a fallacy to say we have no control. For, like a lever's force, there is still significance relative to itself and its own reference in time. The lever's significance is it can distribute force over a greater time interval. The significance of a person is that a person can interact with the immediate environment. Saying that humans must be infinite to have infinite significance is like counting 2 before reaching 2, putting the cart before the horse." ---Nathan Coppedge

"I can see why some people in New Haven are depressed—they are not good writers."
"Success is measured in terms of specific tasks. The tasks are failed up until they succeed, and then a new goal is set. Unfortunately, there is evidence that I am one of the few thinkers who accepts ambitious criteria for philosophy."

"One intuition is that you should improve your awareness of two things: 1. How absolutely flawed human reasoning is, and: 2. The vast potential offered by flawed human reasoning."

"Given this expectation I was remarkably idealistic."

"The door of truth is ajar, But lights flicker, Let us put the argument aside… And live like wise men." The (Authentic) Apology

"True in many ways absolutely, or true by emotion only? Then the only link is emotional if one's judgment is not yet absolute."

"The future is open it seems… For disappointment and fulfilling deceit. I made the most of my mind in its cheat… To deny eternal defeat… To give motions to minds in their dreams… Perpetual motion it seems. Let's see if the judges live up to their fate— To remember the immortal state— To give birth to the land of dreams— And continue the way that it seems…"

"As far as mathematical proof of any of this, I'm not sure math is the right approach, as math solutions may be a way of creating an arbitrary problem out of an arbitrary solution, which is a fallacy, as in that case the definition of the solution must come partly from the definition of the problem, as the problem is arbitrary, and so we are in that case assuming the consequent so long as we define the problem first if it is arbitrary. Math is arbitrarily absolutely a problem until it is defined as a non-arbitrary solution to relativism. So one solution is to begin with non-arbitrary solutions to relativism."

"Soul of Intelligence: The god of stupidity has full power to be lacking in divinity."
"Nathan Logos: Tetra He Draown (Hyper-Cubism)"

"After all, there is an argument that death is timeless, so it must be made ideal." ---Nathan Coppedge

"There just aren’t many good options, or we would be swimming in them." ---Nathan Coppedge

"You may never believe this, but the information hypothesis is less important than perpetual motion." ---Nathan Coppedge
