Anytime someone asks a person if that person believes in absolutes, he or she is referring to maxims. Maxims are constants that never change no matter their application, and are absolute by that definition. There is a simple allegory in philosophy that illustrates what a maxim is. It starts by presenting every size of rock as either the smallest rock, the largest rock or anything in between. The...
A well-rounded argument
A well-rounded argument is comprised of three forms of argument: Ethos- the argument of ethics. Logos- the argument of logic. Pathos- the argument of passion.

Compassion and Calculation
There are two types of people: compassionate and calculative. Compassionate people might know there are rules but don’t really care about following them, making those people more spontaneous. Calculative people observe the rules and expect everyone else to do the same, making those people more consistent. Compassionate people are influenced more by their emotions than their reason and...
-Every dimension is a different argument, metaphorically and literally.

Left, right, up and down are expressions of where we are, the same way yelling, laughing and crying are expressions of how we are. Directions are NOT objective tools...

If you were to stand in front of a mirror and hold out your left hand, it would look like your reflection is holding out its right hand. This is because the orientation of reflections in a mirror are exactly the...

Polar reciprocalism Perpendicular reciprocalism Inverse reciprocalism Polar reciprocalism is the basis for perpendicular reciprocalism’s two dimensional definition. See the horizontal/vertical line scenario. (Polar potentials of combined vertical and horizontal expressions) Polar reciprocalism is evident in many antonyms. Up and...
I feel this is a good example of the the philosophy of fractals and how they perpetuate vertically across their own existence.
A person is like a cube. The bottom side represents the height the person has reached. This could be financial success, power, enlightenment or anything important to that person. The left and right sides are the circumstances the person is in currently, one being outside/environmental circumstances like social well-being or playing a game of solitaire, the other side being inside/personal...
