Just a quick question to any philosophers out there to ponder, as I have done for the past few weeks: what better box to be trapped in than one you do not know exists?
I don’t want to be trapped in any box, thanks.
Or does the question imply that I’m in a box, yet I don’t know it?
a box made of chocolate! *nom nom nom*
Michelle, you have this amazing ability to turn a philosophical rhetorical device and turn it into a serious attempt at humor…
P.s. it did work…
doesn’t matter the trap, the unknown box but believe me it should offer some or other experience and on the other hand we should be able to get and handle that experience
These are really the worst boxes to be trapped in. In fact, (gratuitous plug) I recently blogged about a historical example, where the ancient Greeks were unable to come up with certain mathematical results essentially because they lacked the vocabulary.
