 Post subject: So what?
PostPosted: Wed Apr 14, 2004 3:56 pm 
A lot of philosophical discussion goes on about metaphysics and how our viewpoint is only a shadow of the "real." But my question: who cares? Is there anything any different to us whether we are in reality or a shadow? Why should we theorize about what cannot be verified and does not affect us?

Depending on how you meant that sentence, it may very well qualify me as dumb. Not that it's an undefendable position, mind you... :wink:

FWIW, I don't think you're dumb for thinking that. Everything has an answer, just sometimes, the answer is the question.
