I have over 3ooo friends on facebook. I write philosophy now. This is a little non-fiction piece- Marxian Solipism- I wrote a year ago. I was organizing my things and saw it. it's quite good. Short, original, incisive. There'[s some biology in it, garnered from studying GMOs, politics, information science, and of course philosophy.
I'm on a schedule. I exercise every day, go out to get fresh air and sunlight, eat healthy, and sleep right. That is health. I looked into Hippocrates. We set the simple conditions for the body to heal itself. pain though; my pain, is not physical, but emotional, mental. Same thing, keep it simple.
Solipism is the philosophy that we can not get out of our own head to establish contact with reality. So, how do we know its real, or what it is? All we ever know is our own mind. That's –philosophy; know your mind and you know the world. We experience our self, just as the body's cells in digestion consume their own tissue.
I know a lot now. I've been reading all my life. I know some biology because it impinges on politics. philosophy and psychology. Genes, food, evolution; all relevant to capitalism. I like the Russian Anarchist thinker Kropotkin, who attributed man's success as an organism to mutual aid.
The main thing im working on is a theory of truth, and its corollary of a hedonistic , and sociailst-materialist- theory of morals. The basic idea is truth is not constructed out of Cartesian 'clear and distinct ideas,' but vaguely sensed from irrational non-linguistic signs,. Truth is not a clean grasping, but more like sexually holding, and always in part ESP. in fact, the brain chemical dopamine is present in sexual activiity and when studying or doing research. Knowing, true science, is non-linear, a mystery , an 'unconscious' process.
Just as intelligence may mean dysfunctional, mentally unbalanced, disordered; so is the path to truth—erratic, irregular, inexplicable, disorderly, chaotic.and this means morality is not some clear-cut, well-defined crystaline set of principles, but a carnal and confusing puzzle that may have no satisfactory answer.
what I'm really trying to say, is that truth is intuited in situations from minute , irrational signs, not the result of a series of logical steps, and therefore morality is pleasure, indulgence and moral laxity, as in the New Testament, as well as Karl Marx and secular humanism.
