so this i guess is the place to talk about me by Industria77 on December 1st, 2015, 2:02 pm
theres alot to me, my husband calls them facets, i am a hermaphrodite, i am an inventor, i have lived as a man and as a woman, its important to note, despite how i look, i have never been a man, i just tried to function as one in society. and in both, and every aspect of my life, i am genuine. when i was a man, i was like superman, and now as a woman, i am so fragile i can barely do housework. its not a choice, this is actually explained scientifically.
before, my body ran on adrenaline, and now, i have none at all.
while i never identified as being a man, i have been passionate in both, trying to do everything i could to be the best at whatever i did, be it dishes or laying gravel. note its not that i have ever not known i was a woman, just that i didnt understand how, and while i didnt deny that part of me, i didnt allow it to control the direction my life took. unfortunately, now, i often feel that it in fact my life went the other way, and that living trying to fit into the world as...

Aesthetic Realism I - Nick Zangwill by Zin5ki on March 13th, 2011, 12:19 pm
From Levinson, J. ed., The Oxford Handbook of Aesthetics.

I must grant Zangwill his claim that folk-aesthetics is 'realist', that is, discussed and thought of in such a way that aesthetic judgements have (what he calls) 'realist aspirations' more robust than those of (e.g.) gustatory judgements.

It could be commented that he expects too much of the claim that aesthetic judgements may be better or worse than one another: whilst he claims that previous anti-realistic accounts beg the question against such a possibility (p.68), one could say the same about his assertion of it. (How has it come about that "de gustibus non est disputandum" is now a common platitude as opposed to a phrase viewed with general contempt?) However, I accept that folk-theory — the focus of his essay — may warrant such a brute claim.

In §5, the notion of the quasi-realist solution to the phenomenon of normativity is perhaps give...

Do you take the time to really 'live"? by weakmagneto on March 24th, 2012, 2:59 pm
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprises him most about "humanity", answered "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present nor the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies never having really lived."

It took a close call for me to wake up and realize that my priorities and goals needed to change. I was a work-a-holic who focused on achieving my professional goals and to provide a comfortable life for my children and I. I was successful and ambitious.

One day, I got very ill. So ill that I had to be hospitalized. When I was in the hospital, I was told that I had a serious condition that could result in death. I was told to "get my affairs in order".

It was at that point when I looked back and began to reflect on my life. I...
