PHILOSOPHIZING LEADS TO CHAOS
Critical thinking that lead to personal disaster. Why? How could it be?
Variety of Meanings of Philosophy
There are many definitions of philosophy. From the meaning of the word = philosophia = lover of wisdom, be wise. But now it has shifted to being a lover of truth who prioritizes logic, then trapped into word plays, and is confused, then gets lost into a forest of meaning that is completely unclear.
Why this can happen, while a lot of learning about the use of logic, understanding error in thinking.
There is also the hegelian dialectic. What's more? Einstein's Relativity? What's more?
Ah yes, there is another trend whose success will really change the social order in such an extraordinary way. Artificial Intelligence Singularity. Correct! Artificial intelligence.
With AI, analysis of the meaning of sentences is even more advanced. Then we will debate with computers? Yes! A progress? The bright spot of the great pitch black blob? NOT!
Addition of Confusion
The more each of us contributes thinking, the more confusing than ever.
Only a fraction of the light here and there dimmed quickly.
Generation after generation has only increasingly philosophy with a heap of horror, gripping, the root of sin, the root of heresy, the root of confusion.
Absurdity? Albert Camus ...? And suddenly the horror is so bewildering to subdue, turning philosophy into a realm of risk. And it's starting to get really challenging for them. Like a touchstone for the validity of their thinking.
Only Players Not Fighters
Also begin to occur successors of previous generations of communities in the present era. Discuss here and there, debate here and there.
And there are always those who are good at playing words. There are always those who are experts at influencing. There are always those who are good at negotiating for submission & domination. There are always dodgers, dodgers and so on. They are satisfied in the area of philosophy because of the fulfillment of their desire to put their position in the exclusive territory - to appear different, when many of them outside of philosophy are amazed by those who are able to linger in the world of philosophy.
Outsiders are amazed by people in the world of philosophy, without realizing that those in philosophy themselves are in such turmoil that they are desperate to get out of the bonds of philosophy that have so trapped and robbed the philosopher of peace.
They wanted to get out of the jungle trap of philosophy, and they felt they had. It's just that the seeds of emptiness doubt have spread in their hearts.
Then there are some who repent but hold back the rope of faith as if just touching. Unlike the old days with a tight hug.
HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?
This happened for a fairly simple thing. But therein lies the crux of the problem.
They though philosophy was as easy as playing with words, or indeed think of a pun, or philosophy is like a research effort. Or whatever.
But they forgot one simple thing.
That something has no one or two boundaries, one or two poles, black & white, good & bad. Not!
So many angles, so many directions, so many things!
THEN WHERE IS THE SIMPLE?
Gradation - Spectrum
That is quite simple. As soon as they entered the world of philosophy. As soon as they enlarge, clarify, sharpen their observations, then suddenly .... THEN SURPRISES THEY SAW THE SIMILARITY IN EVERY SINGLE THING THEY OBSERVED!
They now see things that once seemed different from each other, in fact there are similarities to one another
Is the rock ... hard? The rock is very easy for the hammer
Is that bread good? Which bread used to be.
Things like this they suddenly realized about it's disguise that had previously felt strongly different.
Not to mention seeing things from a different point of view.
Not to mention that something varies in terms of the community.
It's called "kindness," but there are different kinds of goodness from being strong to subtle to the point where it's considered bad. For example, the intentions are helpful but can be misunderstood ...
THE DIFFERENCE but LOOK THE SAME, just THE SAME but THE DIFFERENT - See similarities & see subjectivity
Then why? Is there something wrong here? Isn't it that every day we often face similar things, also often face differences of opinion, different points of view? Then why does philosophy become such a system that is able to destroy the foundation of our belief?
This is because the philosophical system takes them deeper and deeper, asking and asking questions so deeply, then suddenly they are surprised that the deeper they think why all the things are connected to one another. As if there is no boundary between this & that.
So there was a tense moment, when they saw almost the whole thing that they believe in ..., again ... almost all of which are interconnected.
Not only similar or subjective, but connected to each other, SO THEY ARE CONFUSED DETERMINING THE LIMITS OF A TRUTH / BELIEF. THEN It's the beginning of judging THEIR OWN BELIEFS, and slowly or as fast as they plunge into the earth ... their faith collapses!
Balance! Those philosophers of the present era have forgotten the balance that must be reached as humans - beings with a spiritual dimension.
Why is this necessary to realize? Because the philosophers leave the world of metaphysics, while without realizing it, the questions they ask come from their innate personality type which contains a spiritual element, but is fully responded to by limited logic!
The closest thing is to not only rely on logic but also don't ignore feelings, don't ignore psychological states.
In short, not only logic must play a single role, but from any side of humanity we must also play a role in observing reality, so that boundaries can be clearly observed, so that we are able to see the real truth - without being obscured.
With balance, the potential to see the limits with certainty, can be realized, then we will be enlightened, not just confused (disguised - misled)
So, are you ready to walk the path of philosophy?
