A Quote by Peter Clothier on beauty, metaphysics, love, and rightness

Beauty is a way of coming up with something to which we assent immediately and absolutely, something that is incontrovertibly right, whether the rightness has to do with metaphysics or with physical reality, with social justice or with personal freedom, with mathematics, or, eventually, with love.

A Quote by Earon on human origins, species, human, human nature, primate, apes, divine primates, and metaphysics

We humans, as a species, need to spend less time imagining
our metaphysical origins and more time pondering our unmistakably primate nature.

A Quote by Douglas Rushkoff on game theory and metaphysics

I regard any behavior we indulge in as a game. The soul is beyond not only three-dimensional space but beyond the illusion of linear time. Any method we use to move through three- or four- dimensional space is a game.

It doesn’t matter how serious we take it, or how serious its consequences are.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on ancient wisdom, metaphysics, lightbody, homo luminous, enlightenment, mind, biochemistry, dna, aging, ascension, transformation, body, and flesh

Many ancient traditions worldwide maintain that humans not only inherently possess the potential for fully incarnating light at the physiological level, but that some have already achieved it, and millions more will do so in the very era in which we live. The historical literature “suggests that there are unusual physical, as well as psychological, consequences in humans to the attainment of the exalted state of mind known as enlightenment,” writes biochemist Colm Kelleher. “These reported changes include, but are not limited to, sudden reversal of aging, emergence of a light body and observed bodily ascension.” While many of these descriptions associate the lightbody with death, Kelleher makes it clear that a number of reports indicate that “transformation of the body can happen independently of death.”

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on human action, needs, ideas, and metaphysics

In reality no food is valued solely for its nutritive power and no garment or house solely for the protection it affords against cold weather and rain…. the demand for goods is widely influenced by metaphysical, religious, and ethical considerations, by aesthetic value judgments, by customs, habits, prejudice, tradition, changing fashions, and many other things.

I want to make clear only that words are not the things spoken about, and that there is no such thing as an object in absolute isolation.'
