Re: "I created the material universe so I could define myself." - Prince of Darkness Idk. How does an entity that constantly sees things external to it answer that? One can merely make analogies at this point. For TWE, it is like the dreamscape. We only do this in our dreams but it's always doing that incessantly.

But your explanation helps me to see how it could be LHP. Extreme individualists indeed. Now I'm curious to hear more on Setamontet's perspective as well.

Re: The Comprehensive Argument for Set
Yes, this means there is a theoretically infinite number of Forms. It also means that for each individual human being, there is a unique and distinct Form of each human being.

@Xepera maSet The frequency of incidents of agreements is astounding. I am beside myself. Just reread your first part of 3. But can you elaborate on that second sentence? Does your modified theory of Forms get into particular/specific Forms for each person on a 1 to 1 ratio as I initially read it? Or is it as before where there is the Form of the ideal human?

Re: The Comprehensive Argument for Set OK. Understood.

Re: Creativity and Selfhood This actually may not sound creative when I describe it as it was quite technical. But I work in a lab and I was part of a project that a co-worker and I undertook of our own accord. It wasn't something that was even expected of us but it piqued my curiosity and so I did. 

A former technician of 10+ years had a lab inventory of all chemicals and their corresponding locations in the lab in an Excel worksheet. The tabs were separated by location. I didn't find it difficult to use but on the other hand, both of us thought that there was a more intuitive and effective way to convey this information. And so we set out to manifest it into fruition. 

So long story short, it's been about a year and we have implemented a new lab inventory via Microsoft Access that is preferred because it is accurate and up-to-date. We are able to set numerous locations and numerous hazards for one chemical entry. And users can attach an SDS and TDS for future reference as well. Needless to say, our supervisors are in love with it and it will soon be migrated into the company via SAP.

After the experience, I have been looking to do similar work such as that. And since then, I have been considering transitioning into data science or software development as an option for me. It would also make sense to me as there are no vacancies where I work and there is a serious lack of promotion.

Re: Love As it is difficult to define in and of itself, I tend to think of it relationally. Oftentimes, I find myself blending good attributes or qualities together. For instance, if I feel that I love an activity or a person, I associate it or them with pleasure or happiness as well.

Re: Love @crossfire Nice of you to bring up the four abodes. It has been an idea that impressed me when I read about it.

Re: Satanic Creationism Essentially, I am in agreement with @Xepera maSet as I think the Setian view is parsimonious. I think dualism need not be discarded because there seems to me to be opposition, polarity or somehow balance (or some combination of this) almost everywhere I see. As i mentioned in another forum, the idea of monistic idealism led my thoughts to consciousness and eventually to Thelema, LaVeyan Satanism, Setianism and Xeper.

In relation to the avowed dualism, I would also say that Zoroastrianism and Gnostics were particularly interesting due to their evaluation of Ahriman (or the demiurge for the Gnostics) as evil. Interestingly, early Christians were called heliognostics or "sun-knowers". This makes sense given the context that the Bible may be read as an astro-theological document. Hence, the son of God is really the sun of God.

Re: Questions on mathematical platonism from Imperishable Star v. I Great paper, @merytseth . I was delighted to have read it. It took me back to a time when all I read pertained to predicate calculus. 

There is a playlist that I saw a couple years back that still makes my heart leap when I watch it over again:

Re: Questions on mathematical platonism from Imperishable Star v. I Non-Euclidean geometry is definitely mind blowing.
