    Nothing.

    Isn't that just a bizarre thought? The idea of absolutely nothing?

    Gives me a physical feeling of uneasiness thinking about it.

    NOTHING.



    Anyhoo, before the universe/space was around, and there was NOTHING, how was something made out of NOTHING.

    I feel like a n00bie, but who cares. I know I can call, but grrrr, I hate phones. Maybe a mod can answer. I want to register my wristband. I can't sign onto my account because I don't know my password. I have an auto sign on to the board so I don't have to remember it. I can't sign onto my account to change my password because even though I am signed on, if I go to my setting to change my password, it needs my current password to request a new one. Now if I know my pw it uses my email address. My email address is my old work email address which is now dead. If I want to change my email address to my current one, I need to know my current password. Gordian knot. Help mods. cr****

    Anyhoo, before the universe/space was around, and there was NOTHING, how was something made out of NOTHING.
    German philosopher Martin Heidegger employed the methods of phenomenology in pursuit of more comprehensive metaphysical goals. In Heidegger's full-fledged existentialism, the primary task of philosophy is to understand Being itself, not merely our knowledge of it.



    In the lecture, "What is Metaphysics?" Heidegger developed several of his themes in characteristically cumbersome language. The best way to exhibit the subject-matter of first philosophy is to pursue one actual metaphysical question; since all of them are inter-connected, each inevitably leads us into all of the others. Although traditional learning focusses on what is, Heidegger noted, it may be far more illuminating to examine the boundaries of ordinary knowledge by trying to study what is not.

    What is Nothing, anyway?

    It's not anything, and it's not something, yet it isn't the negation of something, either. Traditional logic is no help, since it merely regards all negation as derivative from something positive. So, Heidegger proposed, we must abandon logic in order to explore the character of Nothing as the background out of which everything emerges.

    Carefully contemplating Nothing in itself, we begin to notice the importance and vitality of our own moods. Above all else, Nothing is what produces in us a feeling of dread {Ger. Angst}. This deep feeling of dread, Heidegger held, is the most fundamental human clue to the nature and reality of Nothing.



    Human Life as Being-There
    Human beings truly exist, yet our "being-there" {Ger. Dasein} is subject to a systematic, radical uncertainty. Because we know that we will die, concern with our annihilation is an ever-present feature of human experience: Death is the key to Life. The only genuine question is why we are at all. Once we experience the joy[!?!] of dread, we recognize that our lives are limited—and therefore shaped—by death.

    In just the same way, Heidegger argued, so Nothing is what shapes Being generally. This reveals the most fundamental, transcendent reality, beyond all notions of what-is slipping over into what-is-not. Even in the historical tradition, according to Heidegger, Nothing is shown to be the concomitant rather than the opposite of Being. The only genuine philosophical question is why there is something rather than nothing.


    The Ground of Metaphysics
    Writing allegorically in "The Way Back into the Ground of Metaphysics," Heidegger notes that although metaphysics is undeniably the root of all human knowledge, we may yet wonder from what soil it springs. Since the study of beings qua beings can only be rooted in the ground of Being itself, there is a sense in which we must overcome metaphysics in order to appreciate its basis. Looking at beings of particular sorts—especially through the distorted lens of representational thinking—blocks every effort at profound understanding. We cannot grasp Being by looking at beings.

    This was the point of Heidegger's introduction of the term Dasein. It isn't simply a synonym for "consciousness", he maintained, but indicates the vital fact that human beings—and only human beings—truly exist, in the fullest sense, only when being-there for-themselves. Properly understood, self-awareness leads to the authenticity of a life created out of nothing, in the face of dread, by reference only to one's own deliberate purposes.

    For this process of self-creation, Time is crucial. What we are at present matters less than what we are becoming, through the dynamic temporal process that constitutes our personal histories. There is no abstract essence of human nature; there are only individual human beings unfolding themselves historically. In the end, this is the answer to the question of why there is something rather than nothing.

    It is only because we choose being-there.

    You were sort of right. I must have created that other account (in 2007 no less) to register my wrist band or something. I went there, changed my email to another one I knew I never used on Coachella. I could then have my current stats and stuff up to date with what I consider my real account. Ended up it didn't matter because I went to the auto sign on screen, copied the blacked out password, I could then paste it into my "current" password in order to change my pw to something I actually knew. I can now go to the main Coachella board and my email and important info is attached to my account. I only post this boring thing for people that might run into the same situation. My old work email is floating around a number of sites still for me .. Fuck ... cr****

    part of review of series ..

    ‘I’m an ultimate survivalist,’ one of the show’s female stars, Kellie Nightlinger, 38, told the Daily News.

    Nightlinger said she had been starving after spending two weeks in the wild when she devised an innovative way to catch fish using her private parts as bait and then trapping her meal between her legs.
