Platonic Idealism is True, and Human Beings are Immortal
Platonic Idealism is True, and Humans are Immortal
Physicalism and Naturalism are THE MOST IRRATIONAL of all irrational precepts. This is because Platonic Idealism is true.
This is the most fundamental of all questions at the centre of science and philosophy: What is reality, and what is not reality; what is nature, and what is not nature?
This question, and it’s answer, is metaphysical, or metaphysics.
The answer to this question, and it’s resulting debate, marks the central division in western thought. This debate began with Plato and Aristotle. Plato maintained that reality is that which we know or experience by or through reason (mathematics). Aristotle maintained the opposite; that reality is that which we know or experience by or through observation (physics and the other natural sciences). PLATO WAS RIGHT, AND ARISTOTLE WAS WRONG.
To clarify further, REALITY CANNOT BE BOTH WHAT WE OBSERVE, AND WHAT WE EXPERIENCE BY OR THROUGH REASON. IT CAN ONLY BE ONE OR THE OTHER.
Platonic idealism is true because mathematics is reality, and physics is not. And because mathematics is reality, there is therefore no such thing as time and space. Time and space only exist in physics. TIME AND SPACE DO NOT EXIST IN MATHEMATICS. Physics is not reality; it is an imperfect reflection of mathematics.
For naturalism and physicalism to be true, reasoning has to be biological (observable). If reasoning is not biological, then naturalism and physicalism are false. REASONING IS NOT BIOLOGICAL, therefore naturalism and physicalism are false, and Platonic idealism is true.
THERE IS NO MORE EVIDENCE THAT REASONING OCCURS IN THE BRAIN (or that reasoning is biological) THAN THERE IS THAT GOD EXISTS i.e. in terms of evidence, if you believe that reasoning occurs in the brain, it is the same as believing in God. So if you believe that reasoning is biological or occurs in the brain, you may as well be ‘theist’. The brain, like the rest of the body, is just an illusion.
For physicalism and naturalism to be true, they have to demonstrate that knowledge of mathematics and physics exists in a biological form in the brain (or just in a biological form). This is because mathematics and physics are classified as the ultimate arbiters of reality – the queen and king of the sciences, respectively. For naturalism and physicalism to be true, biology has to be the ultimate arbiter of reality, and not mathematics and physics. And therefore the only way that biology can be the ultimate arbiter of reality, is to demonstrate the existence of mathematics and physics knowledge in a biological form. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE, SO BIOLOGY IS DEFINITELY NOT THE ULTIMATE ARBITER OF REALITY.
In terms of understanding the relationship between mathematics, physics (and the other natural sciences), and reality (the central metaphysical question), I am a genius. The reason why people in this forum have difficulty understanding what I say or disagree with what I say about this subject is simply because I am a genius, and you’re not.
I am not arrogant about this. I am just telling the truth. Being arrogant and telling the truth are two completely different things.
Nobody on Earth understands this metaphysical issue as well as I do. I’m the best. No one can ever beat me on this subject. I will always win. I am the world’s leading expert on Platonic idealism. The reason why I will always win is because I am on the side of Platonic idealism, and Platonic idealism is true. Truth always triumphs, because it is reality. You cannot escape reality. And I am in direct communication with Plato. Yes, Plato’s body has died. But bodies are not real. Bodies are just reflections of reality, because human beings are actually immortal. My soul is unified with the soul of Plato in the world of perfect ideal forms. The world of forms, which is known by and through reason, is the real world, and the observed world is the reflection. Plato had the first word, and he will have the last word.

Platonism is central to the philosophy of mathematics: “Platonism is considered to be, in mathematics departments the world over, the predominant philosophy of mathematics, especially regarding the foundations of mathematics.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platonic_idealism
I am a fundamentalist atheist.
