  • 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.

  • 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 compo

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+1=3 unless you do some unfair screwing that involves infinity - but then the answer should 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.

  • 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.

  • Your Result: Immanuel Kant

    There are things in themselves, but they are unimportant to us. We must interpret everything through certain immutable categories, such as time and the laws of physics. All rational animals must see the world through these categories, and what they see is unrelated to the things in themselves. --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

    Aristotle
    Plato (strict rationalists)
    Early Wittgenstein / Positivists
    W.v.O. Quine / Late Wittgenstein
    Nietzsche
    Sartre/Camus (late existentialists)

    I *think* the result fits me, although I can't be sure. My result and some of the questions and answers were a bit hard to understand and wrap my mind around. But an excellent quiz nonetheless.

    Seven stars.

    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 mak

  • The Michael Jackson quiz on that site is more scientific and valid than this one. What's next? Barbie and Ken?. Are they algid or fulgid? Can one be algid and the other fulgid? Which is which? Can life be burgeoning within their twisty groins even though they're plastic from identical clone molds? Will they become the overlords of the universe after the murky wastes of time deplete their primordial urges? Do plastic dolls have primordial urges? Like maybe in some parallell universe where people spout pretentious verbal diarrhea about philosophy?

  • Your Result: Nietzsche 77%

    There is no provable absolute truth. At the bottom of every philosophy there is some inspired assumption which the philosopher defends with reasons they have sought after the fact. There is no rational principle behind our world. The most noble goal in life is to create art. To live well is to be art. If life is a dream, "I will dream on!"

    I guess this is how I think. The art part doesn't really fit me, though... OK quiz.

  • Poorly made quiz.It's clear the creator has a VERY basic understanding of philosophers and thought it would be fun to include the "big words" he learned to make his quiz seem intelligent. The creator of the quiz was banking on the general ignorance of the masses. Please learn to proof your typing.

  • For those lazy people saying "algid" and "fulgid" are not a word but couldn't spend a second looking it up at the dictionary:

    *alg id
    algid [al-jid]
    adjective
    cold; chilly.
    Origin:
    162030; < Latin algidus cold; see algor
    *fulgent or fulgid (fldnt, fldd)
    adj

    poetic- shining brilliantly; resplendent; gleaming

    [C15: from Latin fulgre to shine, flash]

  • Haha. Great quiz. I got Aristotle, which probably fits me well because I aspire to be a scientist.

    "Trut h does not exist in some transcendent realm. We get to truth by applying reason to the physical world. The world follows logic and commonsense. Science if done properly is not to far from philosophy. --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer."

  • I almost literally melted my brain taking this quiz. That's why I'm not a philosopher, and never will be. I will not spend all of my life thinking about "what's the meaning of life", "is God real?", "is life based on truthes or science" etc. I'll just live life to the fullest, and enjoy it as much as I can before it's all over.

  • Typical internet quiz - range of answers for a lot of the questions doesn't cover all possibilities and forces you to choose between two that both half-fit your beliefs. And, S A-Lerer, learn to spell, or proof-read! And why can't I be Bertie Russell, or Feuerbach, or Marx? (Or Jack Smart?)

  • Please edit before posting---poor English does not make you sound like you know what you are talking about. Made up words don't help either. Some corrections I remember:

    accurately. Different. It's= it is, its= possessive. Empirical. Imitation. Depicts. Algid??? Fulgid???

  • What does "fulgid" mean? Is it just a horrible misspelling of "frigid", a synonym of algid (I had to look up both words, just in case I was the one making a mistake and found that "algid" IS a word)

    And, btw, were the answers to that question actual quotes? Or just random stuff, made up on the spot?

  • Language can be better or worse? Than what? Itself? Outside influences? Going to swinger parties and picking up STDs from strangers? Language is the limits of my world (sic)?? It's pure gobbledygook. I hate pseudo intellectual tests like this expecting people to take it seriously when it's nonsense and grammatically incorrect.

  • I agree with Kantbedone. I am familiar with most individuals mentioned in this quiz, and agree most closely with the beliefs of Immanuel Kant. However, this pegged me as Late Wittgenstein.

    Al so, you absolutely should have included Rob Pirsig.
