The Meaning of Life

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 17 Dec 19 in Depression, General Semantics, Happiness, musterbation, musty thinking, Religion |

Perhaps there are such people as “pure philosophers” who placidly think about the “meaning of life” as a kind of “recreation,” and are not motivated to do so by existential angst.   4,811 total views, 3 views today Originally posted 2015-03-11 05:39:27.

General Semantics.  If you are new to General Semantics (GS), you can save yourself from going down a rabbit hole by understanding that the word General doesn’t communicate much here, and, more importantly, the word Semantics is very misleading . . . 540 total views, 2 views today Originally posted 2019-06-30 18:06:28.

Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

  Someone recently wrote something to the effect that he embraces the principle of ePrime, but does not use it in ordinary conversation because it often sounds peculiar and therefore might alienate the other person.   1,384 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2012-12-31 03:20:25.
