Q:“Imagine this situation, you and your son are at a river swimming or fishing or just playing water games or something, you leave your son for a sec and Bow, a crocodile has him, now the crocodile has one rule, he gives you – the parent- a chance to predict what he is going to do with your child. It vows to return your child if your prediction was true, however, if not your child belongs to him.
In one situation, human logic fails to solving this particular dilemma, answering with ‘you will take my child never to return’ that is; for if he returns your child you didn’t predict right and yet he returned your child Or the opposite, taking your child as you predicted. – So the crocodile is not applying its rule while applying it @_@-
All I know is that the child’s fate has got to be considered as well ? “
A: Some questions are never meant to be answered. They’re just a reminder of how fragile we are. How weak our principles can get, however, this question has two ends. One is, that Logic does not fail at solving this at all. If the crocodile asked you to predict what it was going to do with your son, and you answered “you’ll take him never to return” then he is supposed to honor his vow and give him back. Because you did predict what was going to happen. Now, it doesn’t matter what happens AFTER it hands you back your son, as that is irrelevant looking closely at the question, the other end is, that it really is unsolvable. The latter is really not that rare. As something very similar happens almost everyday, we choose to be happy and laugh knowing that its not going to last, we make memories, and most importantly, we make mistakes everyday, and sometimes we repeat those same mistakes! In terms of logic, a mistake only happens once, if it happens again, it wasn’t a mistake, it was a choice and trust me, people make a lot of choices only to regret them later. It really reflects the sad world that we are in today.
Q: ” Hey mate, I was wondering why people hate death so much? like, why are they so afraid of it? “
A: Ask yourself this, what is the ONE truth in life? Death. It’s something we all go through, poor, rich, famous nothing matters. It serves as a reminder of what really is important, and that is: nothing. Because at the end, everyone dies leaving only their actions as they echo in the minds of their loved ones. They hate it because it is truth, an absolute truth with no hope of escaping it. You see people aren’t really afraid to die, they’re afraid of being forgotten. Because when faced upon death, they are reminded of their hallow life, they are instantly reminded of their misdeeds and everything wrong they ever did. That’s why you always hear them begging “No! Give me a chance!” it really is funny, because we live on the brink of death yet act in total denial of it. Anybody could die, at any second. However their actions indicate they believe otherwise, also, not all fear death, those who live a good life and life for others are so comfortable, in fact most of them believe that death would even be easier than life itself and would embrace death with open arms because they have no regrets whatsoever. Live each day as it is the last day of your life. Live as if you would die tomorrow, and I promise that fear would be gone in an instant.
Q: “Question about the recent post, so you mean like no body knows anything? that everyone isn’t as smart as they think? are we really that stupid we humans? lol “
A: If there is one thing that is certain, it is that we know nothing. A person, the smarter he gets, the more he realizes this. That’s why almost every philosopher of ancient Greece (Socrates, Homer,Aristotle… just to name a few) share this common saying “I know nothing” you can be the wisest person in the entire planet. No person can ever be wiser than you, if you just learn this thing, that you know nothing. Knowledge does not stay still, it is always expanding. Nobody is as smart as they think. Know the truth, and use it to your own advantage, awareness of your own ignorance is knowledge itself.
