Response to trotsky (Reply #2)

5. All true, but what I'm saying here, is that beyond the observation that the non-rational IS

non-rational, what else can rationalism say about it? It doesn't speak the appropriate language.

Providing a rational critique of the non-rational is ir-relevant and vice versa.

It is appropriate for each to provide its own critique of the issues in terms of itself and thus reveal its functional superiority if possible, but the criteria of that critique are ir-relevant to the other.

Although, I have to admit that posing these questions this way may really just reveal more about the nature and limitations of the tools by means of which those positions are constructed, language(s), than it does about the issues themselves (. . . hence, my somewhat absurdist sig.)

I also just recently watched a video, titled The Quantum Activist, with Physicist academician, Dr. Amit Goswami, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1397093/ he points out the problems resulting from perspective.
