if you believe in free will, you're probably not the best person to answer this question then. i'm an agnostic determinist. what i'm wondering about is how determinist philosophers like harris can propose a framework for morality that is independent of free will.

Anon, lately I've been kinda ehhh about sex.

I haven't fapped in 2 weeks, I've always been tempted to cheat on my amazing girlfriend... I guess the sex has been stale lately and boring.

I have no real reason to cheat, she's going to med school to be a Nurse Practitioner and has nearly a perfect 4.0 average and is honestly an easy 7/10.

So I decided no porn, no fap 2 weeks. Finally got around to banging this 7/10 cutie from work.

Sex was decent, after I came and left... still feel like it wasn't worth it.

I feel empty. Dunno why.
I am looking forward to seeing my GF tomorrow though, I don't feel the slightest bit guilty about cheating.

yeah sort of, there are some choices that are heavily influenced by evolutionary predisposition, but for the most part i can still make my own choices
>>
>>579636538
Thought that was weird as well.

Can't really reconcile free will with what we've learned about our brains and neural networks in general.

Quantum physics doesn't really help either, even though people love to claim it comes to the rescue of free will.

It's either actually deterministic and we just don't understand it well enough yet. Or it really is random... but our brains being slaves to quantum entropy does not free will make. It would merely make for a better illusion.

>>579632394
>free will exists, i think we can all agree on that on the surface

Holy fuck dude, again you clearly don't know shit about philosophy. If it interests you that's great but you should not be acting like you're in a position to answer anybody's questions. There are so many good arguments for moral responsibility without free will...like soooooo many.

You should be asking questions, not answering them.

Out of what, convenience? Do you also believe in the categorical imperative? This is silly.

That's how I feel. Chick I banged at work knows my GF. Still doesn't care. she says "I want fun" but I can see her true wants when I look her in the eyes while i'm inside her. It's not just lust. Problem is, I fell pretty hard for her long before we started fucking.

I'm leaning towards this being my pathetic excuse to destroy my current relationship, deconstruct my life and start over.

I'm addicted to starting over.

My intent was to point out that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. When people who don't know what the fuck they're talking about but act like they do, it makes things worse for everybody, it spreads incorrect information and hinders actual learning.
Like I said, you should be asking questions, not answering them.
>>
>>579642461

At least I can tell someone. I can't tell anyone close to me because they all know me, my GF, and this work chick.

Normally I don't have issues with doing the whole "Fuck Buddy" thing. But this chick and this situation is something completely different.

GF always says "outta sight, outta mind" but I know she doesn't really mean it.

The whole thing is fucked. I just wish I had someone to talk to who was objective and/or 3rd party and not a total close minded fuckwad.

Thanks.

>>579639783

truly the general direction that the evidence is pointing towards is away from free will. yet the problem still exists that we have yet to with certainty comprehend the determinist conception.

one of my amusing (to myself) hypotheses or fantasies is:

• in order to confirm determinism is true, we would have to show that we can predict what happens next before it does based on our current state now.

• but the only way to do that would be a perfect simulation of the universe up until that moment.

• the infinite complexity required in this simulation would essentially be itself another universe.

• what if the universe is a tautological simulation?

If my experience transcends yours, how on earth can you believe anything about it?

Your belief about my experience can have no content other than conceptions you have and experience in your own mind, leaving the difference between solipsism and 'not-solipsism' nothing more than a difference in attitudes (such as, taking something to be true or not) you have towards conceptions/ideas in your own mind, that YOU experience. None of which is to do with me and my experience.

Does experience other than my own exist?

Answering "yes" or "no" is nothing more than me taking an attitude towards a conception in my own mind ('experience other than my own'), which I experience.

The opposite to solipsism is not logically conceivable.

How could I possibly form beliefs about something I could never in principle encounter (transcendent experience)?

So I'm a a Deontologist at heart cause I think it would be the hypotheticaly best system of ethics, in theory. but I don't think it actually reflects how people are. existentialism gives a more accurate assessment of the world as it is, far as I can tell.
