Reality and The Others

Wednesday, December 15th 2010

My impression of the world is determined by my senses. Change my senses and my "reality" changes. I imagine the world as my senses sense it. But what I sense, though, is something outside the mind. Something independent of the mind. Something I can sense a few aspects of -- with the help of things like my nostrils and toes.

Propaganda, Disbelief and Civilisation

Saturday, December 11th 2010

Many things - countries, money, language - are based on mutual belief. If I believe a country exists, and enough other people do, and that is combined with the ability to enforce that belief through arms, then that country exists. If people start trading using Exo-Dollars, and believe that currency has value, and act as if it does, then it does. If people believe a product is the thing to have, and are willing to spend Exo-dollars on it, then it is the thing to have. If people believe a particular set of religious ideas, and practice them with others, then that religion is real.

It even extends to symbols, language, and so on. If I say a word means x then that doesn't mean anything. If people start to use that word, then it is real - it has meaning.
