    I actually disagree with Albert here

    If this was the case then we would all have to hit ourselves over the head with a blunt object to know it is not a good idea

    maybe you only think it's a bad idea until you actually hit yourself over the head with a blunt object, only after doing it do you know.



    this is an example of a posteriori knowledge - based on empirical evidence - you performed the experiment (hitting yourself), and the resulting pain convinced you it wasn't a good idea.

    before the experiment, it was a belief, which turned into a truth, and knowledge came out of the intersection. it may have been a truth before the experiment, but you didn't know it was.

    however, there's also a proiri knowledge, which is stuff you already know before and without experimenting - eg i know that 'all bachelors are unmarried' - i don't have to get off the couch and talk to every single bachelor to find out whether or not he is married. i know already beforehand, without needing an experiment. Einstein seems to ignore this sort of knowledge.

    then there's more abstract stuff - i 'know' about imaginary numbers, for example, but never experienced them - or do i only 'think' that i 'know'?

    it's certainly a head-scratcher that has puzzled philosophers for thousands of years, and has puzzled mickey for decades.

    if you like scratching your head, read about epistemology.

    Here are some of my favourite quotes:


    ● Love the believer, not the belief.

    ● Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

    ● If you're going through hell .. keep going !

    ● Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.

    ● Something I have to remember when seeking revenge: dig two graves.

    ● Cowards die many times before their death, the vailant taste death but once.

    ● You laugh at me because I'm different ? I laugh at you because you're all the same !

    ● Sometimes you're just one person to the world. And sometimes to one person, you are the world.

    ● Everything passes and vanishes. Everything leaves a trace. You often see in the footsteps, what you couldn't see in the face.

    They say love is blind...and marriage is an institution. Well, I'm not ready for an institution for the blind just yet.

    I think that Doc is currently testing that theory.

    “The reality of the other person lies not in what he reveals to you, but what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does not say.”
