Philosophy Now | a magazine of ideas Syntactic Structures Syntactic Structures is a book in linguistics by American linguist Noam Chomsky, first published in 1957. A seminal[1][2][3][4][5] work in 20th-century linguistics, it laid the foundation of Chomsky's idea of transformational grammar. It contains the famous sentence, "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously", which Chomsky offered as an example of a sentence that is completely grammatical, yet completely nonsensical.[6] Background[edit] Chomsky had an interest in language from a very young age. For his master's thesis, Chomsky undertook to apply Harris's methods of structural analysis to Hebrew, the language he had studied under his father in childhood. In 1955, with the help of Harris and Roman Jakobson, Chomsky moved to MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) as the in-house linguist in Victor Yngve's mechanical translation project. Publication[edit] Syntactic Structures was Chomsky's first published book, a short monograph that distilled the concepts presented in LSLT. Honor[edit]

Six Word Stories Aleister Crowley , Freemason, Golden Dawn , Aliens & Angels - reposted from the B:.B:. © from Brother Blue's Mysteriously Missing Pages reposted by watcher website Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Edward Alexander (Aleister) Crowley [rhymes with "holy"] was born October 12, 1875 in Leamington Spa, England. His parents were members of the Plymouth Brethren, a strict fundamentalist Christian sect. He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, leaving just before completing his degree. Crowley was initiated into the Golden Dawn in 1898, and proceeded to climb up rapidly through the grades. The upshot was that he began to listen to Rose, and at her direction, on three successive days beginning April 8, 1904, he entered his chamber at noon and wrote down what he heard dictated from a shadowy presence behind him. In 1906 Crowley rejoined George Cecil Jones in England, where they set about the task of creating a magical order to continue where the Golden Dawn had left off. Love is the law, love under will.

Western Philosophy Information Philosopher - Introduction Introduction The Information Philosopher has established that quantum mechanics and thermodynamics play a central role in the creation of all things. This finding has enormous implications for philosophy and metaphysics. Instead of a closed universe that is winding down deterministically from an initial state of high information, we find the universe is open and increasing information indeterministically from an initial state of relatively high entropy and low information. An open indeterministic universe with increasing information suggests three testable philosophical ideas: a model for free will and creativity that may satisfy determinists and libertarians a value system based on providential processes in the universe an epistemological explanation of knowledge formation and communication. All three ideas depend on understanding modern physics, cosmology, biology, and neuroscience. All three have strong connections to information science. Man is Free. For Teachers For Scholars

The Bill of Rights (including the Preamble to the Bill of Rights) Fallacy List 1. FAULTY CAUSE: (post hoc ergo propter hoc) mistakes correlation or association for causation, by assuming that because one thing follows another it was caused by the other. example: A black cat crossed Babbs' path yesterday and, sure enough, she was involved in an automobile accident later that same afternoon. example: The introduction of sex education courses at the high school level has resulted in increased promiscuity among teens. A recent study revealed that the number of reported cases of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) was significantly higher for high schools that offered courses in sex education than for high schools that did not. 2. SWEEPING GENERALIZATION: (dicto simpliciter) assumes that what is true of the whole will also be true of the part, or that what is true in most instances will be true in all instances. example: Muffin must be rich or have rich parents, because she belongs to ZXQ, and ZXQ is the richest sorority on campus. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

SN 1987A SN 1987A fue una supernova que tuvo lugar en las afueras de la Nebulosa de la Tarántula (NGC 2070), situada en la Gran Nube de Magallanes, galaxia enana cercana perteneciente al Grupo Local. Ocurrió aproximadamente a 168.000 años luz (51,4 kiloparsecs) de la Tierra,[3] lo suficientemente cerca para ser visible a simple vista. Fue la supernova más cercana observada desde SN 1604, que apareció en la Vía Láctea. Historia[editar] La luz de la supernova llegó a la Tierra el 23 de febrero de 1987. Fue descubierta por Ian Shelton y Oscar Duhalde en el Observatorio Las Campanas en Chile el 24 de febrero de 1987, y de forma independiente por Albert Jones en Nueva Zelanda.[4] En marzo de 1987 fue observada desde el espacio por Astron, el mayor telescopio espacial de rayos ultravioleta de la época.[5] Precursor[editar] Poco después de registrarse el acontecimiento, la estrella progenitora fue identificada como Sanduleak -69° 202a, una supergigante azul de tipo espectral B3.

Great Shots of Animals while Sneaking Animals are known for being, among other things, incredibly stealthy. Like little furry ninjas, they can sneak up on you without a sound and pounce before you even know what’s happening. To be able to move silently through the land whilst watching the animals in their natural environment is an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. George Berkeley: Philosophy Metaphysics of Idealist Philosopher GeorgeBerkeley. Esse est percipi.

George Berkeley Quotes 'The Principles Concerning Human Knowledge', Pictures, Biography My purpose therefore is, to try if I can discover what those principles are, which have introduced all that doubtfulness and uncertainty, those absurdities and contradictions into the several sects of philosophy; insomuch that the wisest men have thought our ignorance incurable, conceiving it to arise from the natural dullness and limitation of our faculties. ... .. we are under an invincible blindness as to the true and real nature of things. ..

Mithra the Pagan Christ | Mithraism and Christianity | Mithras the Sun God by Acharya S/D.M. Murdock (The following article is adapted from a chapter in Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, as well as excerpts from other articles, such as "The Origins of Christianity" and "The ZEITGEIST Sourcebook.") "Both Mithras and Christ were described variously as 'the Way,' 'the Truth,' 'the Light,' 'the Life,' 'the Word,' 'the Son of God,' 'the Good Shepherd.' Gerald Berry, Religions of the World "Mithra or Mitra is...worshipped as Itu (Mitra-Mitu-Itu) in every house of the Hindus in India. Swami Prajnanananda, Christ the Saviour and Christ Myth Because of its evident relationship to Christianity, special attention needs to be paid to the Persian/Roman religion of Mithraism. By around 1500 BCE, Mitra worship had made it to the Near East, in the Indian kingdom of the Mitanni, who at that time occupied Assyria.
