>It is often held that Kant lived a very strict and disciplined life, leading to an oft-repeated story that neighbors would set their clocks by his daily walks.
Was he autistic?

Bernd 08/10/2017 (Thu) 17:45:11 [Preview] No. 9520 del
Not ordinary people are frequently coocoo for some level. Philosophers (not contemporary) weren't the typical people of their age so he might had been even autist.
However judging a man without the context of the age and place surrounding him can lead us onto the wrong path.
Also maybe he was just overcompensating for something or had a simple OCD.

I'm not sure if it's a philosophical or an economical question. Feels moar liek the first.
Let's say I'm a bigwig of a bank. What exactly prevents me opening an account and giving myself a huge sum of money?
Banks have a database right? Account number, name, birth other data and a field which contains a number representing the moneyz on that account. If I have access/authorization then I can write anything there. Then pay with it via transfer in our time and age we don't even need any physical form of money on the receiver side an another bank will accept it. Even better if the owner/distributor of the thing has his account at my bank.
So. My final question. What's up with that?

Bernd 10/04/2017 (Wed) 16:55:38 [Preview] No. 10879 del
Oh you mean like just writing in database a shitton of moneys on your account and not actually transferring it from somewhere, yes? Well I guess besides law they must have some kind technical protection against it. Now it could become also a /tech/ question.
Or, since there are probably more then one bigwig in a bank, they probably watch each other jealously so that no one can cheat the system too much.

Bernd 10/04/2017 (Wed) 17:04:32 [Preview] No. 10881 del
Well in US I always wondered with FDIC, which is federally guaranteed insurance where the government covers X amount if the bank goes belly up or gets robbed you could do something to that effect. Plus since they can loan out more than they have in the bank you could I guess, make bonus loans, like have 1 dollar, loan out ten, say people paid you back, get "robbed", get the people their money back.
Obviously you'd want to be more complicated and more profit and make damn sure you're doing everything right otherwise. Money ain't real though. Like when North Korea hacked some other country's central bank and transferred billions out of them. How's that even make sense? Some blips go over to a rogue nation and what they actually have that money? What does money even mean at that point.
I heard Kant more or less walked the same path everyday from his house to the university and back once we became a professor and he never went something like ~35 miles out of his home village. It kind of resounds in his absolutist philosophies if I'm remembering what I read from him, Critique of Pure Reason?
I'm not sure what to think really about the not travelling much, it's the 1700s and actual philosophizing doesn't normally attract the adventurous. Maybe he just didn't want to go anywhere, found his books more interesting. Come to think of it I guess it does sound autistic not matter how I try to reason that it is not.

Well, he was G*rman. Even more so, Pr*ssian.

Since we were discussing german autism here
What's with people on chans memeing stirner lately? I literally have never heard of him before like year ago, I'm not even sure what is his philosophy. And of course people don't explain shit, they just name everything they don't like a spook.

Sames. It was a warm sunny afternoon on 8/kc I think.
That Stirmer dude was an antichrist or sumtin. Which reminds me I really should read Proudhon sometimes, I just keep stalling.

You know, Bernd, if you weren't born and your consciousness was never formed this world you perceive, this reality, it wouldn't even exist.

Your perception of the word 'reality' has no relation to anything that actually exists, because you devised it subjectively.

Bernd 10/28/2017 (Sat) 15:35:19 [Preview] No. 11522 del
If that were true, your statement would be meaningless as well and so shouldn't be taken as true.

Bernd 10/28/2017 (Sat) 15:45:32 [Preview] No. 11523 del
Ultimately everything is meaningless so it would be very wise not to be taken as true what he wrote.
Also paradox' are a good way to achieve the Enlightenment. According to Zen.

Suicide is meaningless too.

I don't think so people are very good at finding meaning in ultimately meaningless things.
Also this >>11527
Also (if we accept there is existence) we are just a form of existence and if we die we just turn into other form of existence (again if we accept there's existence).

Bernd 10/28/2017 (Sat) 19:41:17 [Preview] No. 11529 del
Also people are scared shitless from the fact they have to die and are unable to face the reality their life is meaningless. I don't want to be mean to them all the time.

You know those people, Bernd, who deny any kind of God and spirituality, they vehemently attack theist ideas, but worship science and believe just about anything scientists say. They have an idea about these kind of things too as they are well educated and read scientific articles mostly on mainstream sites sometimes a publication in a scientific journal but never take a book in their hands (outside school). Mostly young people who are optimistic about the future and believe humanity will live among the wonders science and engineering can produce. They believe we are a pile of particles, our thoughts and feelings are chemical reactions and electricity. They aren't jaded cynics disenchanted by reality as they usually brought up cushioned circumstances and they aren't old enough for that yet.
What keeps them going? For example why the fuck they argue with others about anything as the others are just a pile of particles their thoughts and opinions are just chemical reactions and electricity? Why they are bothered by what other people say as those just waves in the air? Are they angry on other chemical reactions? Do they arguing with rust too? Why they think their life has meaning? Why do they think it's better that certain particles are arranged in certain a way forming their body than in another way like forming a pile of matter digested by bacteria and maggots? What's their excuse not killing themselves?

Bernd 11/28/2017 (Tue) 21:51:42 [Preview] No.12193 del

Because it is basic human thing. Humans are social animals, and their brains are wired to be social. Trying to argue with other persons in the group is very basic thing and you can't suppress this instinct even if you know that it is all about chemistry.

You can believe that world isn't real for example, but this wouldn't stop you to interacting with the world (except if you go completely mad of course).

>What's their excuse not killing themselves?

It is painful and also not good. Why do it, if you'll die in any case? If life has no meaning, there is no meaning in early death too.

Bernd 11/29/2017 (Wed) 00:40:48 [Preview] No.12197 del
Radical materialists mostly just fall into fanatical hedonism as their raison d'être.

The other way around. We only interacting with things aren't real when we are completely mad.

You know about uncanny valleyy, right? I believe there is similar relationship with how educated on the subject you are and how much you talk about it. I made a simple graph depicting rougly how this correlation looks like.

As I stated before this was just a random thought in an early morning I woke up for a second. Here goes nothing.
You know about the idea of the four plus one elements. Fire, Air, Water, Earth and Ether or whatever the fifth got in different cultures, doesn't really matter it's just a jolly joker placeholder for non-(perceivably)-material stuff.
So when you build a fire you need three things: flammable material, heat and oxygen. The first one usually some type of mainly carbon material (wood or coals), can be matched with the Earth being solid substances, the products of the soil, land, earth. Heat is the Fire and oxygen is the Air ofc. When you burn a fire like this several things are released: vapor - which is Water -, energy in the form of heat and light, i.e. Fire and Ether, and gases (CO, CO2) equals Air, all stored in the burning Earth materials, which reduced into a leftover pile.
Our life is sames. We are made of Earth and take sustenance, made of Earth and Water, and we burn it with the help of inhaled oxygen (Air). During the process we generate Fire to keep our body temperature, exhale vapor (Water) and gases (Air). We pass out the leftover Earth. The most notable thing is the other part of the energy which isn't become heat. The Ether makes possible not just the ability of movement but the ability to form thoughts and make decisions. With the help of Ether we can create manipulate the Earthen world and create innumerable Ethereal objects (like a poem), beings (like the gods) even worlds (like Middle-Earth) and other, probably much more stuff.
For starters this feels enough, it sounded much cooler back then.

Bernd 01/30/2018 (Tue) 20:54:59 [Preview] No.13430 del
But what if you realise one oughtta split Earth into Wood and Metal?

Bernd 01/30/2018 (Tue) 21:34:33 [Preview] No.13431 del

But there is no æther in part about fire, so you can't directly compare fire and human life. Or you need to add it.

Bernd 01/31/2018 (Wed) 06:12:21 [Preview] No.13436 del
I don't usually get Wood when listening to Metal.
But I'll think about that.

Ether is everywhere. Fire can free out of things to do other things or put it into other things. But maybe it's easy to mix up it's effect with the doings of Fire. I'll think about that too.

>Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) was born in Konigsberg, the capital of Prussia (now Kaliningrad in Russia). He never travelled more than 10 miles from there in his life.
he also died a virgin, so he was about as KC tier as it gets
