Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, only the views you are not allowed to criticize are different. Tell yourself that... I told you in earlier posts what the situation actually is. Again, the excuses you come up with when you get yourself banned yet again, are neither here nor there as far as I'm concerned. Metta, P...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, It's not about "politeness"... it's about the Terms of Service, which say (1) "Dhamma Wheel is an environment for the discussion of Theravada Buddhism." In relation to you infecting topics with solipsism, it's about (2) "Any subject matter that may be off-topic or is intended to c...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, Please quote me the section in my reply to Samseva where you believe I have ridiculed him for his views or anything like that. Your "Dude What If Matrix" image is a disgrace. Again the "not polite enough" Ben card we are all so familiar with ? It's about being civilized and follow...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, How would you consider a position in line with this diagram posted by Samseva ? Is a position like this one posted in the diagram solipsistic and if not, then how is a position like this correctly labeled is solipsism is not the proper word ??? I don't know what you're asking me f...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, Appearently now you're not even allowed to criticize solipsism or even use the world solipsism altogether. Not true at all. There are topics about solipsism. What you cannot do is smear the whole forum with your obsessions about solipsism... you are sending far too many topics off...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5,

I'm talking about the definition of solipsism you keep posting... not the Venn diagram samseva posted.

e.g. here and here

Clap, clap.

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings, If I was wrong in calling that solipsistic, then how should such a position properly be called ? You yourself said I can't call that solipsitic. The normal thing to do, would be to ask him yourself. I certainly see nothing there which lines up with the definition of solipsism that you kee...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings, In my opinion, whatever position claims material form is dependent on perception and claims there is a 1-way conditionality between that - that is what I consider a solipsistic position. Are you really so off-track to believe anyone is arguing this? :? Seeing you drag your delusions into ...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, You are labelling everything solipsist because you are too obstinate to understand people's views and too pig-headed to try. People do not have to endure your baseless accusations, merely because you feel entitled to interject them into conversations that have nothing to do with S...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, No one is arguing in favour of that. But all means ask someone if they are, but for you to repeatedly insist other people's views and perspectives are Solipsism just because you're too wilfully blinkered to understand the true reasons they see matters as they do, is unacceptable. ...

Re: Circle5 obsessively labelling other people Solipsists

Greetings Circle5, Why in the world have you moved the last ones here ? It was an ontopic response to Samseva. If I consider what he said to be solipsism, then it is my right to call it like that. Please stop with the censorship. I understand you hate seeing the word "solipsist" being used, but you ...

Greetings Circle5, And many other suttas, but solipsist just don't like it. There is one thing to be a solipsist, another to claim solipsism is based on the suttas. :offtopic: :strawman: I'm not sure how many times you need to be told until you comprehend this, but solipsism is not being advocated. ...
