Heaven; Hell

A forum for the respectful exchange of views on thought-provoking topics, whether sexuality-related or otherwise; please read the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the Intellectual Discussion subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions, such as philosophical or scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

Hell is solipsism. [Point A]

Heaven, metaphorically, is who visits the solipsistic, sometimes... [Point B]

Discuss either Point A or Point B or both!
"I lied mistakenly."
"1 joke."
"Just a kiss."

Imagine you become aware that everything you cherish, all the people you hold dearest, the rich fragrance of coffee, the texture of your body, and the millions of strangers you pass by every year, never to be seen again for the rest of your life, are simply figments of your imagination. The reality of solipsism is Hell.

The idea that experience is a purely a figment of a mind's imagination is epistemological idealism, not solipsism. Also are you trying to say solipsism is a true doctrine or that you endorse it?
