• Infinite Improbability One Reality Time

    The Disproof (and proof) of Everything Since the beginning of time, men (I'm speaking of the human race, this is not sexist in anyway because women are included in this too) have pondered our existence and purpose, as well as the nature of the world we live in. This is perhaps the single most time consuming thought we ever have for most people live their entire lifetimes without finding the answer or even coming close to one. I myself have pondered this question for most of my life, until recent...
  • Third Dimension Exist Particles Dimensional
    395 words
    The Facts of Life "Existence is Truth" Everything we know of is the third dimension, and its properties. Everything is composed of atoms, and atoms are composed of smaller particles. All particles are three dimensional because they have the dimension of height, the dimension of width, and the dimension of depth. Air is composed of particles in a low state of density, water is composed of particles in a more dense state, and physical objects are composed of particles in a high state of density. ...
  • Cosmological Argument First Cause
    715 words
    How Well Does the Cosmological Argument Hold Water The Cosmological Argument is one of the most heavily disputed arguments for God's existence of our time. The argument in its simplest form is: "Everything has to be caused by or created from something else... therefore there must be a first cause, namely God." The very basis of the argument, everything is caused, is what makes it an argument. We will see later that the argument has faults and makes it difficult to interpret. St. Thomas Aquinas ...
  • Descartes Used The Existence O
    1,052 words
    Descartes used the existence of God as a foundation for all of his thinking. In the time of Descartes, the Catholic Church played a very important role in everyone life, including the life of Descartes. Descartes grew up and remained as a Catholic all his life. So being a Catholic, Descartes has to prove the existence of his belief before he prove anything around him existed. In the fifth meditation, Descartes says the mountain cannot exist without the valley even though we may see the mountain ...
  • St Anselm Ontological Argument
    1,095 words
    In the following I intend to prove that the ontological argument is in and of itself, insufficient in proving that God exists. There are a few problems with the argument that I will be discussing in detail in an attempt to illustrate exactly why 'The Ontological Argument' is unsatisfactory. The Definition of 'Greater's t. Anselm of Canterbury defined God as "that-than-which-a-greater-cannot-be-thought" (Bailey, 2002). The problem with this definition is that the term 'greater' is surely up for ...
  • Idea Infinite Substance Reality

    Assignment #2 Skepticism: claiming of having no knowledge, for instance, Descartes rejects the idea that beliefs originate from sensory experience could serve as the foundation of knowledge. Solipsism: is the belief that "I" am the only thing that exists, things and people are just productions of my thoughts. Foundational ism: is a set of basic beliefs which do not depend upon others for others acceptance, and then one can derive other beliefs upon that. Objective Reality: rejection of any belie...
  • The Cosmological Argument Actual Infinite
    1,621 words
    The cosmological argument was first introduced by Aristotle and later refined in western Europe by the celebrated Christian theologian, Thomas Aquinas (d. 1274 CE). In the Islamic tradition, it was adopted by Al-Kindi, and Ibn Rush (Averroes). The argument has several forms, the basic first-cause argument runs as follows. Every event must have a cause, and each cause must in turn have its own cause, and so forth. Hence, there must either be an infinite regress of causes or there must be a start...
  • Ideal Human God Sin Infinite

    Can the descriptions of God, claimed by the Bible, be proven In Descartes Meditations, Descartes logically proved the existence of an infinite and truthful being. The Holy Bible describes God, our creator. I plan to compare the logically proven infinite being (God) and the Biblical God and see if their traits mirror each other. If they do then it would prove, if not give strong evidence, that they are one in the same. First I will restate Descartes proof of an infinite and truthful being. P 1-Id...
  • Spinoza Number Of Substances
    2,660 words
    This paper will outline Spinoza s argument in Part 1 of his Ethics of substance. He argues that there is only one substance, which is the same as God, that includes everything in the universe. It will walk through each proposition and explain his proof of it, which relies of his stated definitions. This paper will also explain the difference between Spinoza s belief of substance and that of Leibniz from his Discourse on Metaphysics. It will then argue that Leibniz s account of the number of subs...

  • Descartes Third Meditation Proof Of Gods Existence
    1,361 words
    Descartes' Third Meditation: Proof of God's Existence In Rene Descartes Meditations on First Philosophy, Descartes is seeking to find a system of stable, lasting and certain knowledge, which he can ultimately regard as the Truth. In his methodical quest to carry out his task, Descartes eventually arrives at the proverbial fork in the road: how to bridge the knowledge of self with that of the rest of the world. Descartes^aEURTM answer to this is to prove the existence of God. The purpose of this ...

In fact, these tertiary qualities are also ideas perceived only in the mind. Given that objects are ideas and humans possess minds to perceive them with, the nature of both ideas and minds deserves careful consideration. Berkeley assumes the view that ideas are passive and only perceivable in a mind. He goes on to state ...
  • Infinite Number Of Point Points Line One

    There is only one being, continuous, material, and motionless. Let's take a moment to examine a number line. 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 It's pretty simple to understand. The line represents a distance, and the'|' characters symbolize different points on the line-the exact points are differentiated by the number below them. Any number line is understood to have contain points which aren't necessarily designated by a number. For example, on the above number line we know that between ...
  • Finite Set Sets Cantor Numbers

    Georg Cantor founded set theory and introduced the concept of infinite numbers with his discovery of cardinal numbers. He also advanced the study of trigonometric series and was the first to prove the nondenumerability of the real numbers. Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, on March 3, 1845. His family stayed in Russia for eleven years until the father's sickly health forced them to move to the more acceptable environment of Frankfurt, Germany, the place wh...
  • Dickinson Pain Has An Element Of Blank
    1,234 words
    Although cryptic in language and structure, Dickinson gives her work vivid sense of emotion. Her examination of the feeling of pain focuses in on only a few of the subtler nuances of pain that are integral parts of the experience. She draws in on an 'Element of Blank " that she introduces in her opening line. In exploring pain, she proposes that this 'blankness' is a self-propagating force that is subject to the dynamic forces of time, history and perception, but only to an extent. Her first men...

    Let's try to answer all these questions correspondingly. Let's start with a short funny fantastic story. The action takes place in the future, when the inhabitants of different galaxies can meet each other. There is an enormously huge hotel for such space travelers crossing several galaxies. This hotel has infinite quantity of rooms. As it should be, each room has its number. Any natural number n corresponds to the room with such number. Once the meeting of cosmozoologists took place in this ho...
