In Chapter 2 of Book 1 on the Physics, Aristotle rises the question whether the first cause is one principle or goes back to many principles. As a result, he wants to show why it cannot be one principle and therefore has to be more than principle.
Chapter One of Book One of Aristotle’s Physics arises the concern of the first cause or first element. He introduces the method to find it and the demand on scientific philosophy.
Nations traditionally tend to expand and building empires is seen as might. However, this concept is condemned to fail and instead, we have to go back to the people on the ground. In 2015, I proclaimed the New Constructivist Communism and its three levels. In this article, I want to show why the New Constructivist Communism is a true alternative and how it affects the class struggle.
In this paper, I summarize the key points of the first two dialogues of Plato’s Gorgias and why rhetorics is rather bad for the soul and does not heal it.
When I was very young, I started to collect phrases and words in many different languges and within the years I created a big archive. In the first edition of “My Archive Of Languages” (2016), I opened the archive to the public.
This new edition contains updates and more phrases, new exercises, introductions into scripts and other features that were not included in the previous edition. The work is divided in the so called ‘manuscripts’ which are the collected files, and an appendix with ‘Notes’. These notes contain useful information about the languages, grammatical features, explanations to the phrases, etc., making it a general reference work. It is intended for polyglots who want to get a glimpse in different languages and work with them on their own. The book is multilingual, but most manuscripts are explained in English, though some are given in German, French, Chinese or Russian.
The languages that can be found in this book:
Arabic (dialects only)
Cameroon Pigin (“Bad English”)
Circassian (Adyge & Kabardin)
Chechen (+ Kist)
Kreyol (St. Lucia)
Tatar (Volga Tatar)
Мари Мангошвили и Тимо Шмитц: Сила любви (21 июля 2017 года)
Каждую ночь я вижу одну звезду,
Как зеркало в моих глазах, огромню,
Как огонь на небе озарающий мой путь,
Но в моем сердце навсегда только ты,
невидимая сила, возвращаясь в мой мысли,
Такая большая как море –
Уничтожающая мое горе,
я всегда буду с тобой,
Храня огонь любви навечно,
Ты моя душа, моя страна,
Моя любовь, моя земля,
Моя единственная радость
и смысл жизни ты моей –
Сила против наших врагов и плохие людей,
Твоя незимная красота сравнима
с Ангельским ликом царицы Тамары,
Освишающим дорогу в рай!
The Power of Love
By Mari Mangoshvili and Timo Schmitz – 21 July 2017
Everry night I look at a star,
Like a mirror in my eyes, it is so fascinating,
Like a fire in the sky, shining light on my way,
But in my heart there is only you,
An invisible force returning to my mind,
As big as an ocean –
Destroying all my grief,
I will laways be with you,
Keeping the fire of love forever,
You are mysoul, my country,
My love, my territory,
My joy is united in you,
As you are te meaning of my life,
The force against all our enemies and bad people,
Your eternal beauty is comparable
To the angelic face of Queen Tamar,
Enlightening the road to heaven!
Cognitivists claim a normative ethics which can be recognised by human-beings. However, cognitivism cannot work due to the subjective moral construction of each individual and there is no reasonable explanation why people should be able to draw the same moral conclusions objectively in themselves. As a result, cognitivist normative ethics can never work properly!
15 common myths about North Korea that are complete nonsense!
Though the religious motivation of the Red Banner movements is never mentioned formally in DPRK media, the religious symbolism is often brought up however. The reason why there is no explicit mentioning is the fact that the higher classes are rather atheist or agnostic, while lower educated classes are more susceptible for religious beliefs and to ensure that people do not develop beliefs against the government, myths are spreaded and pilgrimage sites opened where people can venerate the Kims as heavenly leader. The article below shows how these reeligious symbols however appear in DPRK media and how they are presented. In addition, also pre-red banner lyrics that play a large role in red banner movements are analysed like the songs “Bright Star” (1966) and “The Star of Korea” (1928/ 1980).
My girlfriend and favorite author Mari Mangoshvili has written a new short story and I am proud to have the honor to present it to you on my blog. She is really the best writer I have ever read and she inspires me everyday.
In her short story “Roller Coaster” (Download below), she talks about life and critically reflects how we waste our time going on a hurry and striving for new things everyday, insead of treasuring the people we love; and once something is achieved we go on striving for other things, leaving the people behind. I think it is a wonderful lesson to rememeber ourselves to cherish the people around us, their positive characteristics, but also their flaws. In addition, it teaches us, not to give up the person we really love!
