axioms Contents Contents | rgb Home | Philosophy Home | Axioms | Other Books by rgb: | The Book of Lilith | Axioms is a work that explores the true nature of human knowledge, in particular the fundamental nature of deductive and inductive reasoning. It begins by embracing Hume's Skepticism and Descartes' one ``certain'' thing, and then looking for a way out of the solipsistic hell this leaves one in in terms of ``certain'' knowledge. Indeed, to the extent that philosophy in the past has sought to provide certain answers to virtually any question at all, philosophy itself proves to be bullshit - all philosophical arguments ultimately come back to at least one unprovable premise, usually unstated, and can be refuted by simply asserting ``I don't agree with your premises.'' The way out is to give up the idea of certain knowledge. Axioms by Robert G. Dedication No book is written in a vacuum. Notice Copyright Notice Copyright Robert G. Lulu Press

How To Setup Asterisk@Home How to set-up a simple, IP-based PBX (private branch exchange) Have you ever wanted one of those nifty office telephone systems? You know, with extensions, your very own receptionist, voicemail for every cubicle, an intercom system and all the other bells and whistles. Unfortunately, a typical office PBX (private branch exchange) that would provide those features costs thousands of dollars to get up and running - and that's one of the cheaper solutions. What if you could do almost as much for virtually nothing? The final result will be your very own IP-based PBX that will allow anyone on your LAN (if authorized) to be given a telephone extension and voicemail inbox, make and receive calls from within or without your LAN - with nothing but a VoIP line, a microphone and a pair of headphones. Ready to begin? What you'll need Finally, you'll need any VoIP provider that supports SIP termination or IAX/IAX2 protocols (these can be extremely cheap). We used this as our server.

Justin Blaauw: Latest poems You worry me, Shy One,I'd love to get to know you.But you are not shy, you are a bastion.Quiet, unmoving, firm. Resolve. You are a friend, fathoms deep,I need to fathom you out.I need to speak to your sleep. Your pulse, is like the tide, constant, neap.Under the moon, pale, we sleepSpeak out! Let's just talk about the weather today,I don't mind. Talking about the weather is just as good,How are you ? You are deep, but quiet, a firm resolve,A revolver, rotating drum, by the fire light,The din of the djinn, is quiet in your soul.I stare into the embers of the coal.The call of the night. Talk to me. I want to know you, I like you,Talk to me, even about the weather,How are you, fine, as ever,Tell me are you all right, is your family safe,Do you eat at night ?
