i like the classical and romantic periods the least, although i do like schumann a lot, his piano works in particular. i prefer early music and neue musik. minnesang, renaissance, baroque, expressionism, serialism, musique spectrale, musique concrète, minimalism etc. bach and vivaldi remain my absolute favourites, loved both as a kid already.

Ku-universal word for anything, but mostly used for "hi". From the soviet sci-fi comedy kin-dza-dza. Also can be used for emotional expression, sign of respect, pointing, swear word and pop songs.

Most of east Asia I would imagine from visiting Japan and Korea. Korea was even better to work in as a foreigner than as a local. I out earned my Korean colleagues by almost 2x their salary and had all my living expenses, save for electric and gas, covered by my employer.

No. 13318
>>13316
Well, if we're going approach it from an empirical perspective, a miracle is an event the cause of which is impossible to know. Which I think the mystery of creation is. Simply being unknowable puts it outside the scope of empiric knowledge and into philosophy/mysticism.

From a metaphysical perspective, there is no reason for anything to be rather than not to be. "Nothingness" is a false concept (as explained by parmenides), but that is an empirical reservation at its core: non-being is impossible simply because we happen to live in a reality that happened to Be rather than not be. WHY existence is the default rather than non-existence, I think we'll never get to know.

Orthodoxy was already dead by the time of revolution. People didn't believe in it and the original idea was long lost.
What many western people don't get about the soviet times that it was a form of anarchy. You could kill people you don't like by letter and take whatever you want by force. Stalin and lenin didn't list all people they want to kill by names or personally shooting at people. People did it to each other. The church was devastated by its own hands, property was taken from it because people wanted to. Religion was too corrupted already by 18 century.
I might agree that byzantine orthodoxy wasn't bad, there are many good ideas. But in here and Ukraine it was more of an national identity and in Russia church was more of a kid for tsars they didn't want to have.
Also Belarus isn't orthodox in a way like Russia. We had uniat church and our tradition still borrows a lot from paganism.

What do you think is a good philosophy that just simply accepts Man for how he is and actually accepts the world for what it is without actually imposing its own rules and laws and observations upon the observed? Do you think that there is any philosophy which is actually objectively truthful and neither attempts to change the nature of the Man or that envisions some "answer" like Salvation to the actual state of affairs, but quite simply observes the natural order of things without necessarily any judgment or cloudiness of vision from personal biases, assumptions, principles, and conclusions? Do you think such a thing is possible?

Do you think that there is any actual philosophy that truly can tell you not to change the nature of a man, or offers some utopian ideal or grim pessimism, but quite clearly sees things for how they are?

And yes I am aware of Sartre though admittedly don't actually know a whole lot about existentialist thought. And I don't just mean Mankind and the self centeredness of much philosophical conjecture but an accurate depiction of simply the world/universe/reality devoid of hopes expectations or fears, and quite simply in utter naked boldness declares "this is how things are" without biased flaws?

I'd say these are more questions of biological limits to perception than about philosophy?
You'd end with a machine or mechanism that counts all molecues, electrons, positrons, photons and writes a log about their positions in the universe at a given time if you want this kind of "objectivity".

Your best bet as a human for seing (at least some) things "as they are" is probably some form of meditative praxis.

>of there being a philosophy to follow
will you anglos ever learn what philosophy is? it is, like math, a SCIENCE. you can't "follow" "a math". neither can you "follow" "a philosophy". you may agree or disagree with statements and theories different philosophers have issued. however, the fact that individual philosophers also deal with matters within the usual domain(s) of religion and/or ideology doesn't mean that religious or ideological beliefs or politics become "a philosopy of x". philosophers are neither priests nor politicians nor yoga mentors. philosophers are scientists and philosophy itself is simply the most universal science. which does not, unlike other sciences, seek to assess, describe and predict rather specific sets of phenomena such as numbers, quantum mechanics or sociology, but basically everything. richard david precht said it basically links all sciences together - i do basically agree with this, however i'm more with the old greeks here, i'd describe it more as an umbrella for all sciences, in mathematical terms that would be a set of (yet?) unknown cardinality.

Some time ago I wanted to banter at USA on topic being them a third-world country because water is more expensive than cola. I didn't find the pic and I still haven't :DDDDD, so I didn't post anything at all. Later, during the act of bowing to world imperialism making an order in one fast food chain, I noticed that water is more expensive there as well, what's more - usually everywhere simple water branded bottles are more expensive than cola at Pepsico or Coca-Cola Co. They make us drink sweetened water, they consciously make our bellies bigger so we would want to eat more and more.
Any initiative fire to stop this nonsense and force companies to make carbonated drinks more expensive than pure water because they'd never make pure water cheaper will be extinguished with piles of money, so I just came to outrage.
Thanks for attention.

Our municipal water supply is total pizdes. I had a private well growing up. That water was safe to drink and tasted good, certainly better than tap and bottled water. I drink a lot of seltzer now because the water is of such shit that even a Brita over the tap doesn't fix it.

Ok you think it's bad, compared to what? That means nothing without comparing it to the state of other countries. The US actually has a lower allowable lead content compared to the EU, 15 ppb vs 25 ppb. Where do you live now, have you actually looked up the levels of contaminants on a site like ewg.org or are you just being paranoid?

I have watched the land around me transform into creaturas. Best thing to do is go live somewhere with a private well and homeschool your kids and try to expose them as little as possible to the corrupting influence. I dont want this to be misinterpreted as a political statement though as the rightard version is even more horrendous than the left. Even the very message of Christ seems polluted in this land. It is like the American version of being russified and it is difficult to escape. I would say fast food especially industrial meat, public schools, and municipal tap are the leading causes of being American russified into a malevolent retarded fat slob that is barely above an animal or a chatbot subjected to perversions of nature.

Not entirely, primarily due to large bloated agricultural sectors maintained by the US that are nearly entirely subsidized by the US federal government. Also the relatively new large Brazillian investment into making the hinterland of their country into an agriculture powerhouse.

In all honesty, the European food market would be flooded with Ukrainian food were it for highly protectionist EU trade policy on food.

The idea that European countries would starve themselves out without the third world nations is false though, the opposite however,is fairly true.

>When looking at specific food groups, the EU exported over €14 billion of cereals such as wheat, spelt, barley and oats in 2016, accounting for almost one fifth of the total extra-EU food exports (17%) in value. The next largest group was made up of vegetables and fruit (€12 billion, 14%), meat (€11 billion, 13%) as well as dairy products and eggs (€10 billion, 12%).

>The EU Member States imported mainly fruit and vegetables (almost €30 billion, or 30% of total extra-EU food imports), fish (€24 billion, 24%) and coffee, tea, cocoa and spices (€19 billion, 19%) from third countries.

Like I said, imports from the third world)))

I think historical context is relevant too in terms of looking at Europe wide food concerns. Maybe Europe wouldn't starve but basics like certain fruits, nuts, vegetables etc would be more unavailable. A large amount of third world as in South America and Africa are doing things like cattle ranching and timber clear cutting. I think that it would be possible for them to adapt considering how much of their economies rely on export of often non-locally essential products. The main thing is how climate change impacts the European climate. If the gulf stream collapses for instance you guys are pretty much fucked agirculturally and for heating/energy concerns. Europe in particular is unusually vulnerable to this kind of thing, which has also been fucked by volcanoes http://science.sciencemag.org/content/362/6416/733.full

See the thing is most bydlo dont seem to understand that "climate change" does not mean everybody universally gets warmer summers and that's it. A more appropriate description is "climate disruption". Some places will be wetter. Others hit by draught and wildfire. My relatives farm for example has been totally fucked because the entire summer was wet and rainy. So we won't be having like 90% of the fresh stuff we usually have at Thanksgiving because of that. You are only looking at projections in current paradigms. Given sufficient climate and economic disruption the situation can change very quickly.
