If my thoughts are just electrical signals or neurons (I.e something physical) does that mean if I imagine myself as prime minister of the UK then it's just as real as David Cameron being the PM according to the regular interpretation of the fact?

Forgetful..

Hi! I am in a weird situation. I had a friend with whom we were really close. We both lived in the same country for a long time. Now she left to go somewhere else and she has completely forgotten about me. I came here looking for a quote to send her that will shake her up. A quote related to people who forget their friends when they can have fun without them. It might be a bit of a longshot but Thank you in advance!

Is Family Guy postmodern or post-postmodern? (Seth McFarlane is an accomplished author/social theorist so this is literature related) What is you favorite Family Guy jokes? I like these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcggwUrx5WE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W23LKD9Z1hw

I don't know how many of you were here four years ago, but this place was a shitpile. Even more elitism than there is now but less actual discussion of literature. I don't think I saw a single post on Gravity's Rainbow that made me believe the poster had read the book. I came back a few days ago because I was curious, and now I see relatively intelligent thoughts on Pynchon regularly. There are shitposts but the goodpost:shitpost ratio is way better than it used to be. There only used to be one tripfriend though (I think his name was Lewis). So it's gotten worse in that respect, but mostly better. The history of /lit/ is a history of progress. The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice. Discuss.

Let's get a moral realism thread going. Obviously there is such a thing as "morality"-- we have a word for it. What is the nature of this thing called "morality"? Is it nominal? Universal? Is it natural to humans? Or is it artificial to humans-- viz., do humans construct it? How is morality actualized? Through thought or action? Through gestures or contracts? And what of moral qualities? Are "virtues" and "vices" real traits of an individual identity? How do these traits exist, metaphysically speaking? More, what is "identity", and what is its relation to action? Are "virtues" and "vices" words to describe habit? Habits of what? Of thought? Of action? Is there a such thing as moral progress or regress? How can we improve ourselves, morally speaking? Be sure to mention what kind of conceptual schema your description of morality relies upon. Where does morality fit into the whole of human experience? Where is its place in epistemology? And what of aesthetics? Are morality and aesthetics at all related? After all, morality is generally taken to be within the purview of human valuation/value judgments. So, what is the conceptual nature of morality in a broader, axiological context? And what about linguistically? Morality usually implements terms like "good" and "bad". Do "good" and "bad" in the moral sense share their meaning with other usage of "good" and "bad" in common parlance? Do you think that morality can be descriptive, or does morality necessarily implicate "prescriptive" or "normative" language? And, finally, if morality is a thing held in common by humans, where does morality fit into a sociological and political framework? Do leaders lead the State's construction of morality, or does the State reflect the morality of the people? Different cultures doubtlessly reflect systems of morality that differ from one another... why is this? But, simultaneously, there are common threads amidst the moralities of different cultures... why is that? Let's hear it, /lit/.

ITT: Literary authors whose writings where informed by their interest in STEM, others arts or conceptual problems. Bonus for rigorous authors fwho borrowed and efficiently used concepts and not only names and images. Double bonus of for authors who aren't discussed on /lit often. Rec and discuss.

I am willing to pay someone $30 to write a report for me by the end of the night. It cannot be plagiarized. Question #1: Define Henry’s relationship with the women in his life. In particular, focus on his mother, Miss O’Shea, Piano Annie, and Granny Nash. Write one paragraph for each of the female characters listed above, commenting on how he remembers his earliest encounter with each, what role each one fulfills in his life, and if he finds fulfillment in his relationship with each. This reflection should be 4 paragraphs in length. Question #2: How is Henry’s father’s wooden leg both a symbol of Henry’s mobility and his immobility? Which aspect do you think is more strongly symbolized, mobility or immobility? This reflection should be 2 paragraphs in length. All told, you should have six (6) paragraphs for A Star Called Henry.
