        The board is 90% philosophy. They used to ban it a while back but they stopped because people wouldn’t stop posting

            Try G.E.B. OP. It’s mostly relevant to computer science, but it’s also introspective about human thinking as well.

            Well there is a literal philosophy board they could go to instead. They just ignore it, for some reason. Probably because they can bait low-information posters into discussions more easily on LULZ.

                Did you quote the wrong post or are you not a fan of GEB? What don’t you like about it? I don’t understand your reddit reference, sorry.

            It’s supposed to be a board about novels and poetry and shit like that but literally no one talks about that

            Philosophy is supposed to go on LULZ but that board is basically vintage /poo/. It feels like medieval peasants arguing on the internet about the superiority of their own small village.

              That would be far more interesting, substantial and fun than what’s going on on LULZ.

        I’ll check it out. The consciousness discussion can’t be dumber than the one on LULZ and LULZ.

          Everything on the board is hit or miss to be honest. I can usually find at least one or two threads that interest me, though I also hold beliefs that LULZ would flay me over even though they aren’t that strange and adapted to physics as we know it.

          Consciousness threads in particular you can expect a pantheist take. Most of us believe that everything has at least some consciousness, and that the mind isn’t necessarily a consciousness generator but more of a consciousness antenna… A focuser, or shaper.

          May sound schitzo, maybe it is. Like my man Socrates I will be the first to admit that I might be wrong about something, but experiences with psychedelics, studying different religions, and even my knowledge of science all lead me to believe its not a crazy theory.

          Though I’ve also spent the last 10 years browsing the most schizophrenic board on this site.

          We may believe in spooky demons, but at least we know that infinity is an actual thing.

        Philosophy is a waste of time because philosophers are morons

        The average philosopher is more intelligent than the average scientist.

            Ironically, Stephen Hawking was a loser himself who never achieved anything important in physics.

      read any book at your level on set theory. at least learn about russels paradox, a few statistics paradoxes, and know godels theorems.
