A Cartoon For Seth (maybe)

About: the philosopher's cat | www.philosophyoffreedom.com

I read the book The Philosophy of Freedom decades ago. Most of it seemed to me at the time dry philosophy.  Some have put a lot of energy into really bringing it up to date. There is even a rap musician who speaks in the video in part 13  & pictures of Obama on one of them.  If you can follow the thoughts it helps clarify the notion freedom & free will.

RS: ... To live in love towards our actions, and to let live in the understanding of the other person's will, is the fundamental maxim of free men. They know no other obligation than what their will puts itself in unison with intuitively; how they will direct their will in a particular case, their faculty for ideas will decide.
...
I went through the first 13. There is something on Math as pure thinking in part 12 & the Golden Rule in one of them. Around 7:30 in part 12 he brings clairvoyance out of the realm of woo-woo & the miraculous into the realm of pure thinking .. art etc. It is worth a view.

Well this certainly is a good multi media presentation of the materials.  That said, it is all meta.  The content is not there ... to get the content you must actually read the book.  So, to me, this material becomes like a mantra ... a slogun ... something that promotes ideas that are not present in the media projected ... but in a way just sells the book.  

I wonder if i could get it as a real eBook yet?
You & I both took it grossly out of context. My purpose was to underline something that might be interesting to you, Seth because it takes makes the topic out of the airy-fairy & makes it more a unity. You should probably watch the entire video & maybe even the series to get the point.  OTOH, if you want it all summarized in a sentence & don't want to read the book (or watch the movies)  then there's nothing here for you - "these are not the droids you are looking for ..." (Star Wars). (;-))

Hi James!  Brother Seth finds that some eBooks like Kindle & others don't work on his iPod Touch or at least are a problem to scroll around. Maybe he will elaborate here for you.

What do you mean, a "real" eBook?
For me a "real" eBook is published in a format that can easily be read on a small devise.  You turn the pages of text that are adapted to the font size that is easily read on your devise.  Your buy these at amazon and google and itunes and other places, but you can also get many of them free.  Here i point to what i consider is a good example of something that is NOT an eBook ...  to read it i had to copy and paste and host the text in my own file, which the author forced me to remove.
