 Philosophy Idea

There is no logical impossibility in the hypothesis that the world sprang into being five minutes ago, exactly as it then was, with a population that "remembered" a wholly unreal past.

It is possible the world came into existence five minutes ago, complete with false memories

गीत-कवि की व्यथा: एक - किशन सरोज

ओ लेखनी! विश्राम कर
अब और यात्रायें नहीं।

के स्वस्तिक न रच।
अक्षम समीक्षायें
परख सकतीं न
कवि का झूठ-सच।...

 Philosophy Idea

There is a difficulty for any view of facts which sees them as being wholly abstract entities, and yet also being causal relata; for it seems that only concrete entities, existing in time and space, can enter into causal relations.

Facts cannot be wholly abstract if they enter into causal relations

Are we celebrating the wrong leaders? | Martin Gutmann

We tend to celebrate leaders for their dramatic words and actions in times of crisis — but we often overlook truly great leaders who avoid the crisis to begin with. Historian Martin Gutmann challenges us to rethink what effective leadership actually looks like, drawing on lessons from the famed (but disaster-prone) explorer Ernest Shackleton.
