Some admin with probably an incredibly very low IQ has just deleted another topic, that I have just made, so I try again. This time I am going to rephrase the topic a bit.

I found this sentence written by british Philosopher - Alan Watts: "Though It seems that I know that I know. What I would like to see Is the I that knows me when I know that I know that I know." How do you interpret that sentence?

I once listened to about 5 CDs of Alan Watts and didn't understand anything the next day but it made me feel a whole lot better about myself. It doesn't really need to make any sense, it's just sorta calming wisdom I suppose.

Yes that is probably true, because your brain haven't evolved enough to think at that level, and that's why Earth will keep getting polluted. Because there are too many of your types.

The word "seems" implies that he's uncertain he really knows what he knows.

" ...What I would like to see Is the I that knows me..."

He wants to see himself, or rather the representation of a variant of himself that understands him.

So, he wants to see a "him" that knows him.
" ...when I know that I know that I know."

When he knows, that "HE" knows, that he knows.

I interpret a cycle of self-acknowledgment...pretty much understanding that he understands himself, and everythings in good order.

In short, he wants to "chiggidy check himself" to prevent riggidy-wreckin' his mind.

Very nice explanation :) brings another perspective to it.

P.S. nice to see that not every NG user is retarded :)

Because im just saying its called learning. I remember him posting this before and thats what happen. So if he knows he knows that he knows he knows that just means hes aware of what he actualy knows. and aware of some of the things he doesnt know.

I neglected to add, that this is what he wants. The entire statement is that he longs for the ability to recognize and confirm that he actually knows what he knows...and to understand, in this checker, that they acknowledge what each other knows.

Yes yes, that's quite the riveting lecture you gave there old bean. Those mongrels down at the PUBLIC universities would never understand such complicated and beautiful execution of the Matrices Sub-Plutonic formula. Their brains are just not EVOLVED as much as ours.
