Commenting on certain philosophical and political themes this week, can’t say it is my normal cup of tea…but let’s dive in for this weeks’ SYW, shall we?
Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? I really do feel that anything we experience that is deeply meaningful will always be twinged by emotions. Therefore it is almost impossible to experience objectively. The deeper the emotional connection, the less objectivity adheres to it. History shows the same event in a different light when you speak to people on opposite sides of the table. Something small and insignificant is possibly an area to be unemotional and objective, but picking between an apple or orange juice for breakfast is something quite different than life or death, to invade another country or even to purchase a new house or car. Look at our children (yes even furbabies), for most of us are so emotionally attached that we can not be objective about them as someone on the outside, is that not true?
Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul? What is a Soul?
I hope you are all having an amazing week…
