Quote from: "Court"I don't really buy the idea that everything is defined by its opposite. It completely ignores those things that don't have opposites, like "hat", "twine", "clock", "time", "space", "immortality", "substance". How do we define time when it has no opposite? Time doesn't even have degrees like lightness and darkness do. There's no reason, then, to think that we would not be able to define a concept (or have the concept at all) without its opposite in existence.
Quote from: "Court"Yeah, I noticed that. What's up with it?And yes, there's anti-matter (so that drives out substance), but for individual concepts (like a concept of leather, for example), there is no opposite. Saying anti-matter covers that concept is like saying black covers the concepts of all the other colors. If we define ALL the other colors by opposing them to black, what delineates each color?
