The Infinite! In Search of The Ultimate Truth.

Statement: These are my OWN theories. Some are right, some are wrong, for others it is still unknown or debatable. As time goes by, I'll be researching the subject and make the necessary "purging." This is not a scientific writing based on research! This is the work of a PHILOSOPHER! I find it challenging to conceive an idea and form a theory, before I read about it somewhere or learn about it. To conceive an idea and put my name on it before someone else does, and form a theory that it would be later proven true, that would be a bonus! There is risk to that as it is evident from some colorful responses I sometimes get from aficionados of science and virtuosos! But somehow like this, PHILOSOPHERS grasped with their imaginations GREAT IDEAS, upon which scientists built, and others learned! FEEL FREE TO CONTRIBUTE !


THE INFINITE, IN SEARCH OF THE ULTIMATE TRUTH !

"He contemplated the grandeur, and the presence of God; the eternity of the future, that strange mystery; the eternity of the past, a stranger mystery; all the infinities hidden deep in every direction; and, without trying to comprehend the incomprehensible, he saw it. He did not study God; he was dazzled by Him. He reflected upon the magnificent union of atoms, which give visible forms to Nature, revealing forces by recognizing them, creating individualities in unity, proportions in extension,the innumerable in the infinite, and through light producing beauty. These unions are forming and dissolving continually; from which come life and death." - Victor Hugo; Les Miserables.

The prevalent theory on Cosmology is the latest one by Stephen Hawking. According to this theory
time started to count for our Universe ever since the Big Bang; the Universe is expanding as is evident from the fact that no matter which direction we look from Earth, galaxies are getting further and further away. Depending how fast things move in a given part of space, its given time.

Now you posted all this same rubbish on the Skeptic Society forum two years ago remember? Not only was it all debunked as nonsense, but you promised to stop spamming it on science and skeptic forums.

Do you remember?

The part you lost me on is when you defined a deity. My issue, not yours.

Isn't that usually the start of a religion? If a rather vague version of one.

I wonder how many thousand words that was? As a matter of some vague interest - although only to OP poster I imagine!! - I listened to it, while listening only to the start of many of the lines - and what a confused mixture of self-congratulatory ideas it is.


Fortunately, here on IS, we can rely on the fact that there is always someone who knows more about the writer than someone like me!! And the pomposity gets deflated!!

Debunked? You mean someone bothered to read it?

Still making stuff up mate? How did it work out for you last time?

Could you also provide the link to my thread since I can't post it, having not completed 15 posts yet; also I have added a few crossed t's and dotted i's; it's not easy to edit here through the mobile.

I am not looking forward to a new debate, as our previous debate has achieved its objective; so let's not go at it any further.

I feel like if you can't figure out how to post URLs that arent links, you probably aren't ready for this.

Here's an example of something you could post right now, today, that would work as a URL for anyone interested:

example.com

Here's another one:

reddit.com/r/talesfromtechsupport/

And another:

forum.cosmoquest.org/forumdisplay.php?17-Against-the-Mainstream

See how that works? Just post your URLs as non-links. We'll figure it out.

I get a warning that I can't post a link since I have not posted at least 15 times. When I do I'll add the link to my response. Also the "edit" button does not show under my original post, any ideas? Thank you.

The "Edit" button is only active for a few minutes after you post. Then your post is locked in as it stands.

Do you get a warning if you try to post example.com?

Thank you again ThePrestige, and for shedding light on th "edit" issue; I guess I'll have to repost the topic in its entirety.

I didn't try the "example.com" cause I don't want to give the impression I'm circumventing the regulations. Is it frowned upon to repost the topic with the changes then, what if you need to correct punctuation or add a few things here and there?

I don't want to take space unevessarily but I want to add:

...

"Gravity affects everything within the Infinite, even our digestion (body inversion is good for your bowels and your spinal disks). As for some unknown mechanical affects; the clock of my automobile always gains up to 10 minutes and I have to get it adjusted every time I take it for service (perhaps a failed attempt by manufacturer to compensate for interacting forces that slow down the clock with the "passing of time").

...

Live your life to the fullest, making the best of every situation, avoid hurting anyone's feelings directly or otherwise; if you cannot make a situation better, don't make it worse. In life everything we do will bring outcome/outcomes of various proportions and will affect us and our loved ones to some degree through an action - reaction, ripple effect.

.....

6) Math is dimensional, because our mathematical calculations depend on what amount we assign to a UNIT (stage). Math is the assigned amount of a unit (1), its absence (0) and the Infinite (never absolute unit or absolute absence of it). The Infinite could be symbolized mathematically by a circle (inclusion) with a plus in it; to denote that the Infinite inludes everything (unit denoted by the perpendicular bar of the (+) sing), nothing (denoted by the 0 ofthe circle), and the (+) and (-) signs to denote Negative and Positive (and the aforementioned emerging effects of negativity and positivity to existence).

7) Gravity affects everything within the Infinite."

Thanks again.

It's okay to post URLs.

The forum software will automatically block you from posting actual links, but you can post URLs all you want.

---

Basically, it's the "http://" or "https://" at the front that makes it a link. Omit that, and you can post the rest or the URL no problem, not even against the rules. It won't show up as a link, but you can put it into your browser address bar and it will work.

It's not against the rules. Feel free to post that URL any time.

We didn't have debate. You were unable to set out a coherent explanation of what your religious claim actually was. You simply kept posting the words "infinities of infinities".

Interesting.

- Your clock gains time and yet the interacting forces slow down the clock.

- You have to get the service guys to adjust the clock? Most of us can do this stuff ourselves.

Can't believe I am wasting my time reading this crap.

With the help of gravity, I fell off the roof in 2012, becoming inverted in the process. It was not good for my spinal disks, which are now held together with titanium rods and screws. The resulting need for heavy doses of opioids was not good for my digestive system either.

He then came back a few years later, asked Pyrrho the moderator to reopen his account, and posted his very insane "infinities of infinities" nonsense post.

He is just a mad person who keeps posting the same gibberish on many forums. He can't write a coherent sentence or make a coherent argument.

Agreed. OK as a summary but definitely needs clarification/elaboration on many points.

Could you also provide the link to my thread since I can't post it, having not completed 15 posts yet; also I have added a few crossed t's and dotted i's; it's not easy to edit here through the mobile.

I am not looking forward to a new debate, as our previous debate has achieved its objective; so let's not go at it any further.


This drivel was also spammed to The Philosophy Forum, Philosophy Now, Arktos and more.

We didn't have debate. You were unable to set out a coherent explanation of what your religious claim actually was. You simply kept posting the words "infinities of infinities".
Yes, hir "Christian Infinitism" didn't last long.

1) There is nothing wrong with improving your theory, stance and viewpoint on a subject. That's the point of discussion, debating, feedback and learning; which you seem to be missing sometimes.

2) I had expected alike as much resistance to my theory from Atheists, Theists and everyone in between. INFINITISM expresses the frame of mind that all perspectives should be considered, for any value borne by theories sprang from all the different outlooks on life. My earlier posts reflected that attitude.

Perhaps you'll make it a purpose of your life to "debunk" INFINITISM, but since you've already stated that the deed has been done already, I wonder if we'll have to wait a lifetime for you to provide a link or other info as to by whom, when and where.

I usually adjust the aforementioned dashboard clock around Daylight Saving Time change. On a couple of occasions the service person took it upon herself/himself to do it. Perhaps it is a general issue that they had been looking on. As far as clock gaining due to interacting forces, despite of clocks usually loosing time; I think you missed the part where I wrote that it was perhaps "a failed attempt by manufacturer to compensate" for loss in time keeping, as time went by.

The point I was trying to make is that watches and clocks are not a reliable telltale sign that time exists, they are simply human made tools to measure the Sunrise-Sunset-Sunrise period, WE humans have established. As with EVERYTHING within the Infinite, clocks and watches too are affected by gravity. If you doubt this statement, stick your watch/clock out of the window and let go; see if it floats (you can try the same experiment in your bathtub (after filling it with water).

By the way, body inversion is good for circulation as well! I could provide links for all its aforementioned benefits, but as of yet I have not completed the 15 posts required in order to be able to post any links on this site.
