I'm just warming up my arm. Just getting the first few pitches out.

I've been thinking about this exchange all day.

Just saw this.

Thread: MLB pitcher signs deal to make over 98,000 dollars a day the next nine years



Anyone else wonder if the $ isn't worth much anymore?

I paid $11.50 for a quesadilla two Saturdays ago. Granted, it was a fancy quesadilla..

It was $8.50 last year.

Imagine trying to describe the taste of an apple.

What do apples taste like?

That sudden 'blank' you draw when reaching how to describe it..is qualia.

No matter what words you can draw or imagine to describe the taste of an apple..it will never experience the same as eating one.
 Quoting: Seer777

Excellent analogy to the Adam and Eve story it seems.

Qualia could be said to be the reason for being...

Or something like that?
 Quoting: callit


Yes, that makes sense. Knowing is direct experience. Qualia is the viewpoint for that experience.

that's a cool pine apple you carved there.

How do you understand red? Or apple? Or elephant just by glancing?


Thanks. Not my work but I admired it, right away.

It tells a secret.

One that is obvious when seen.
 Quoting: Seer777

It seems, seeing the color Red in comparison to other colors gives the experiencee... "qualia" the template of understanding.
Understanding the Apple is much more complex, involving our "5" senses as well as the understanding of all the properties of an apple as far it's organic lifecycle from trees to flowers to fruits to seeds and back to the trees. Also the philosophical or theological connotations...
As you just showed with that Rose carved apple, the abstract possibilities for organic art and the interpretative variabilities are, many... Apples are Deep.
Elephants, are Amazing! That's a never-ending story...

Yes. An admirable picture in many ways.

It seems to tell many secrets?

You just taught me about silience and qualia...

What's obvious for one is certainly not obvious to all.
What secret do you see?
 Quoting: callit

I guess the point is, whether it is a baseball or an apple coming for your head..you're gonna move to get out of the way.

Otherwise..it's is gonna hit you.
