  • Language...
    Is a way to communicate and pass along information through external space. Language helps understanding, and non-vocal language is just about an expressive alteration of reality. Language allows beings to help each other and also insult each other. It's a way of making sense of stuff; a way of communication. Heck, without language, we'd never ever have discovered maths, and we'd also all be dead! Anything at all that is alive or processes anything at all must use a language in order to acquire free will. But language can be abused. It can be a falsification of reality for greedy people's satisfaction. Also, no language has the ability to express absolutely everything. If someone's missing a sense (other than "psychic"), there's no way to be able to tell that person what it feels like to have that sense. It also lacks the ability to talk about everything, since we haven't discovered everything yet. But that's only kind of universal language. If mathematics are a language, it would probably be able to describe everything. But for us humans, using maths to communicate is so inefficient, especially as our language has abstract yet useful concepts. So we started naming everything.

  • We should live to be...
    Who even cares what choices you make? Anyone is just as important as anyone else, and in the grand scheme of things, no-one's ever really going to do anything radical. We just naturally exist, like everything, purposelessly. But I don't think the right answer is to be oblivious to this fact. Everyone should just enjoy their life and do what the heck they want before their existence is utterly demolished even though they never will actually be since time is an arbitrary concept that comes with us when talking about things like "everything" and "reality" and "existence" and whatnot.

    Mathemati cs...
    Are the foundation for everything. Since we learnt that we are made of mathematical structures - and for how omniversal and powerful mathematics are - it's almost utterly impossible to imagine any kind of reality composed of anything other than maths and logic. Mathematics are completely and utterly immutable, omnificent and omnipresent. So...since everything is made of math, and time is a part of us because we're 4D, does that mean we don't have free will? Well yeah. This doesn't prohibit you from making decisions. It's just that your decisions will be definite, no matter how much you think about it. But since time travel is impossible, it's almost like we can't know that for sure, but every infinitesimal frame of time is determined by absolutely every one of the properties of all of the quanta in the previous one. Maths also don't care about anything, and can't do anything since they CONTAIN time.

  • God...
    Is something we invented to explain everything. That's exactly why God has omnipotence. Because omnipotence is a cheap way of shortcutting science, and now we have stubborn descendants because of the makers of the religions because of it. And what's more, they're trying to harvest people for their religion in an attempt to dominate everyone's beliefs. I think they should wake and grow up. Gods weren't the ones that created the universe. But I already said nothing is ever really not real, right? Well, now that we have SCIENCE, we need to at least push them all back to the omniverse and make them all more logical or something. And I don't know whether mathematics have Gods actually creating it all, or if the entire omniverse and everything else was just a contraption of maths and logic. Anyway. Yeah. That also explains why God is so human-like. I mean, humans don't just want this weird force that caused everything to exist. But I've revealed it was maths and logic all along. Well OK, I didn't say "why" yet. Because the only properties of all the quanta, fields and everything else in the universe are mathematical ones. By the way, I don't remember where I was going to put the following information since I had to retype this section because I accidentally lost it. But no god is able to just make a rock they can't lift. The whole point of being omnipotent is to be able to do everything unless someone has a higher level of omnipotence than them. But omnipotence can't be used to break logic for the very reason that being omnipotent and capable of doing everything requires logic and math processing. It's perfectly OK to not be able to create a rock you can't lift, because you can lift all rocks. Omnipotent people are already all-powerful. They can't just go and surpass themselves. They also can't fully destroy math and logic, and that's also OK.

  • There is NO WAY you can get 1+1=3 unless you do some unfair screwing that involves infinity - but then the answer would be an ultraposition of every single real number at once. Told you it was unfair.

    Is truth transcendent?
    Yes, but again, not when it comes to opinion. The only distinction between "good and evil" is classified by those who experience it. Since we know that all our hard work will be gone with the dying universe in the cosmocalypse, who even cares what the difference is? Obviously it's not going to matter.

    Art...
    Is a fantasy, a way to express our ideas to enjoy ourselves. An extension of reality based on ideas inspired by reality. It can also be used as a way to replicate reality. But that's just what art is. Nothing is ever really not real.

    Life is...
    In every one of the universes where biological life has generated consciousness. Consciousness is only the way information feels when it's being processed and has a decent memory. That means any collection of quanta in the whole universe will be conscious for at least an infinitesimal amount of time. Everything not classified as "alive" will be conceived and killed infinity times per second, unless the Planck length of time really is the smallest. Since there are infinite universes, nothing matters. And since all of them are going to end one day, I mean, why even bother? Every decision anyone will ever make will already have been done in infinity other universes, with both accurate and inaccurate precision. All of them to be wiped one day, never to be learnt by anyone anymore since time is just a part of the universes. Life is basically a big waste of time. And trust me, I wish that wasn't true :/
    But I can't believe there are people like Kurzgesagt that actually hope for the future, while blantly knowing that nothing will matter one day. That's...boundlessl y elusive. And you know what else? Only life can think to study everything, and make sure of facts and that everything is real.

  • I got Artistole. Now I'm going to tell you nothing but the entire absolute truth. Actually, I can't. I mean, right off the bat, I didn't think about things like the variable density of the air. So I can't tell you the whole truth. But I can tell you enough of it to accurately describe my philosophy.

    If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is there, does it make a sound?
    Yes. Who cares if no one is there? If the tree IS even falling, there should be a disruption in the air causing a sound wave. Except if it was in space - then there would just be a vacuum. I mean, common sense, people. What if the air was superdense and no-one was actually there with the tree, but people could hear it? Well, that would cause a lot of problems because everyone would able to hear when things scream or when things fall or blazes ignite or whatever. And it would both make verbal communication inefficient and all sound closer to people's ears! And what about if you completely and utterly faded out every single little sound, except for the sound of the tree falling far, far away just for the purpose of a philosophy?

    What does science do for us? (in terms of truth)
    It tells us we should WAKE UP!!! Stop doing sacrifices and whatever! Clearly if the people who invented religions were alive right now, they MIGHT change their minds. But we became so believing in the religion that we became too stubborn for everyone else doing science experiments, so, even though the real truth is there, we just got really serious about it. It would be great if religion was faded out and confirmed wrong. No more extreme Muslim attacks!

    Is truth relative?
    It depends. If you give a biased opinion on something, you're not wrong because whether something is good or not is up to you. It's your opinion and nothing is necessarily right or wrong. Reality, on the other hand, is immutable and certain. The universe WILL exist as it is since every single thing is composed of maths and logic. There is NO WAY you can get 1+

  • GOD NO I MISSED SOMETHING IN MY COMMENT AND I CAN'T EDIT OR DELETE IT

    You know what, I'm just going to post it again.

  • I got some philosopher named Adolp Hitler or something like that.
    It just said that he was a great philosopher with mighty ideals or something.
    JK watch me on Cheaters weekdays @10 and sunday@4.
    love u 2. LOL WTH

  • 77% Aristotle. I liked how some of the options were schools of thought rather than individual thinkers. I *was* a teeny bit annoyed at the purpose-of-life question where you had deontology and virtue ethics represented but not consequentialism. Other than that, though, love the quiz!

    JSMillie Sep 22 '15, 7:26PM
  • Sartre/Camus 92%

    ADU Aug 2 '15, 8:36PM
  • 85% Aristotle! woah!
    :D
    and my god! these people poluted your awesome quiz with stupid messages! O.O

  • I got Nietzsche....I guess that's a good thing.

    foggysoul11 May 3 '14, 11:29AM
  • No Karl Marx?

  • compilers of quizzes are confined to the limits of their own thinking or plagiarising ideas of others within their limits. However, this was fun to do outwith the absurdity of your spelling!
