Does this place still exist?

Unread postby Oighost » 4 September 2022, 02:20

I'm back from the dead. Sorta. Does this place still have any active users from when the site first split from GTF? Do any of those members stay in touch?

It's been so long that I lost my password, along with my email I made the account with, AND the phone number associated with that email.

Well, at the very least we can say it subsists, as does pretty much every intentional object, universal, abstractum, existent, etc. Let’s try an elementary proof that it exists.

(1) Given any two things, x and y, and any dyadic relation, R, supposing Rxy, then x and y exist. (2) I stand in the relation of (say) thought to the forum. Therefore, (3) the forum and I exist. (MP from 1 and 2) Therefore, (4) the forum exists. (CE from 3) Q.E.D.

In any event, yes, the place is more or less still alive. Welcome back.

Oh, well strictly speaking one needs to add that one of the following holds true: the forum is a concrete particular (basically, what McTaggart would’ve called a ‘substance’), I’m a concrete particular, or both.

Ugh, I’d explain better and correctly revise the argument, but it seems silly seeing as nobody cares about this save me lol

[Update] Scratch that, since if we admit that the forum is a concrete particular, we’re going to have to presume from the outset that it exists—because every concrete particular exists. So we would have to add the premise, among one other, that I’m a concrete particular.

You’re most welcome. And to answer your question, in case you hadn’t already discovered the answer on your own (an unlikely prospect, since you weren’t even sure the forum existed in the first place :P), yes, people from the old forum still congregate on this one.

Awesome well I hope to reconnect with some of them. I have repressed a lot of my memories from that period of my life so I hope others remember me. :lol:

Well, if it’s any consolation, I’ve repressed my memories from those days, too. Some memories are better left not recollected. Good luck on finding the people you’re looking for.

Oigo? :awesome:

Welcome back!!! Always nice to see a familiar face :keke:

I'm still here (Anonymous Boy), and I wrote a summary in reply to a similar question a while back, which you can find here. It remains mostly accurate.

By the way, in case you're interested in seeing some very old posts, for various reasons an archive of GTF is now available here. :D
