  • Do atoms objectively exist?

    Best answer: Yes they do. I have actually seen photos of individual atoms taken with an STM (scanning tunneling microscope). They appear as only little dots of light, but hey, there they are!

  • What is your opinion of Solipsism?

    Best answer: Two parts: "I know the Noumenon of I" (meditation of Schopenhauer); and, "I am the only one" (this is illogical; rather, one's Schopenhauerian knowing has no absolute certitude re otherness). Descartes' solipsism was simply radical epistemological questioning; Descartes intuited or... show more
    Best answer: Two parts: "I know the Noumenon of I" (meditation of Schopenhauer);
    and, "I am the only one" (this is illogical; rather, one's Schopenhauerian knowing has no absolute certitude re otherness).

    Descartes' solipsism was simply radical epistemological questioning; Descartes intuited or discerned Mind, God, the One, as informing and guiding Descartes' knowing of self. Hence, Cartesian "I think, therefore I am" is not true solipsism, as Descartes' "I think" reflects Mind, his God..

    Schopenhauer's intuition of "will" was that of inchoateness, rather than Descartes' "The Father and I are of one Mindness." This "noumenal quality" is the extent of Schopenhauer's awareness of Noumenon, hence frames his "solipsism."

    Therefore, it is evident that the awareness of solipsism is dependent upon the thinker's presence. If anomic, as with Schopenhauer (not to mention the Sartres), then solipsism is more pronounced. If a Descartes, Plato, Plotinus, or a Whitehead takes a radical epistemological turn, their ontological certitude moves beyond solipsism as a personal enclosure, for these minds understood God, Oneness, hence there is certitude per self (a typical non-radically-questioning philosophical position), with options towards scientific intermonadic community and/or I Am oneness of theology.

    Kant's position was transcendentally philosophic: Man philosophically interpreting God (theology, metaphysics thereof) and Nature (science). Kant's distinction between phenomenon and Noumenon ---> science/non-solipsism per sharing protocols re 5-sense data and ---> God as ineffable (hence, a stage beyond Schopenhauer's solipsistic Noumenal meditation--that of God, Mind, which theologians and some philosophers encounter).

    Schopenhauer's "noumenal solipsism" reflected his lack of awareness of (or conviction re) God as integral basis of Noumenon. Therefore, there is no real validity in taking up a solipsistic position; as "Amy" said, there is validity in science (and reasonableness in "I-Thou" theology/philosophy), and Kant's dualism disallows solipsism per his "awakening" re Humean solipsism (Hume ~ "I can't be sure of the causality of anything physical, and I deny God Is"), hence the need as perceived by Kant to bifurcate God, Noumenon, for the theologian/metaphysician, and Nature, science, for the intersubjective community of such workers. As Godel and others have shown, even the solipsistic position, at a reasonable level of axiomization, is necessarily incomplete. Thus we are left with Kant's science, Whitehead's process philosophy and theology, and direct insight of e.g. Plotinus ("One Mind Soul"); solipsism is seen to be both necessarily incomplete and practically irrelevant. Wittgenstein addresses this human impossibility of solipsism by his observation that there is no "private language." Ibn Tufayl's "Hayy Ibn Yaqzan" addresses the movement from solitude to wisdom, and this shows at least part of the spectrum of philosophical thought as one's solitary psychological awareness moves towards the Light of the One. The use of "solipsism" as an epistemological focus is seen in Descartes--questioning various paradigms or axiomizations.

    I believe that life has no meaning and that humans as an existence have no significant impact on the universe. Now I know that sounds like nihilism but I don t agree that morals should just be thrown away yknow. Yes there s no meaning to life and we re all insignificant but I still have hopes and dreams for my future and I still believe that in this pointless world there are things that I enjoy and that I should be a decent human being to others. I heard that nihilists think that morality does not inherently exist. Basically my viewpoint: Life is meaningless and everything I ve ever done and will do in life, and everything all humans have ever done eventually won t ever matter to the universe. It ll just keep expanding like nothing. Despite this I might as well make the best of the pleasures in life and there s no excuse for me to throw away basic human decency
