Since you're apparently an expert on Kant, why don't you explain to a dumbass like me how he's related to a 1999 hollywood blockbuster called "Matrix"?

The same for quantum mechanics...why would someone even need any of that to interpret this movie? I'm just an uneducated fool...so I'd appreciate an explanation how it's relevant at all...

I'm going to make it as simple as possible. I'm going to pretend I'm talking to a 10 year old.

1. Kant believe we have "instruments" that allow us to view this world. It is the 5 senses. It is the mind that constructs this reality. The core of our reality is made up of light, energy, vibrations, etc. The mind takes the light to create vision, vibration to create sound, etc. It is our mind that creates reality and not the other way around.

2. Planck (a much smarter scientist than Einstein) ran a few experiments that pretty much prove waves (electrical charges) don't actually become matter unless if someone looks at it. He concluded that matter does not exist and our observation of the world is what creates it, hence the creation of Quantum Physics (greatest science of all time).

What books are you talking about that is greater than Kant's Critique of Pure reason?

I really would like a response to this.

There's a reason Kant is known as Kant-Stand-Ya to the educated scholar.

Trust me. You aint educated.

Kant > Spinoza

It's cute you actually can reference him, but I doubt you even read him. Kant is a genius pure and simple; the fact Quantum Theorists have to reread what he wrote 200 years ago proves beyond a shadow of doubt he knows what the f*ck he's talking about.

Like I said, Kant's ideas are so far ahead of it's time it'll take another 100 years before you peons can accept it as truth.

Lebron reminds me of neo because he is the one. Especially toward the end when it looked like he died. That was like lebron in game 5 of the 2012 ECF. Then game 6 was like neo jumping into the agent and killing him.

Lebron is the neo of basketball: he's creating his reality; what these trolls don't realize is if reality is a perception, you have the power to change it through your imagination.

There is this motivational docu called the secret. The reason why it does not work for many people is because they still believe in some caveman Science that tells them their perception is real and they can't do a lick about it.

Newtonian physics is dead. Fact.
It is sad 99% of ISH posters are still brainwashed by this ancient line of perception.

Studied the Matrix when I did Philosophy In high school. Good times. And a good movie.

Yeah, being black, 6'6, with a 48' vertical had 1% to do with it.

99% imagination.

I'm imagining that you're a f*ggot. Must be true.

STFU.

You don't understand Kant. Come back at me when you've done your homework. Thanks.

ah, no... i was responding to your hyperbole upon the matrix.

that is, i think i can speak for a certain audience in saying that when we first saw the matrix, we collectively rolled our eyes a bit. just about every little bit (and much more) had been covered by SF-authors the previous three decades or so.

kant and kant-scholerism is all very well and good, but IMO you've got to develop the inner kant (and others) should you decide to go anywhere. he can inspire you, he can vaguely point the way, but the godawful work still comes down to you doing the hard work of examining your own mind and making adjustments over time.

call it the inner universe forming a proactive collective with the outer universe.

Are you implying that LeBron and Jordan are able to shape their life with calculated decisions or actually practicing the law of attraction better than everyone else?

Seriously, what the hell are you trying to say? Bringing up genetic freaks up nature and the law of attraction and discrediting Newton and all of his observations is ****ing wacky.

Then again, you don't actually believe this shit and you're just trolling per usual.
