    What is your favourite philosophy quote and why does it speak to you?

    I would love to hear what everyone's favourite philosophy quote is and why it speaks to you personally, also what your interpretation of it is! My all time favourite is 'the unexamined life is not worth living' - Socrates, because I value personal growth and evaluation above all else, and I...

    The Undiscovered Self C.G. Jung

    Has anyone else began reading this? I found myself perplexed at picking up this book at this particular part of my mbti/ life journey as I was literally feeling science was failing spirituality and vice versa. Wondering if it would be acceptable to start a thread off of the topic of this work.

    Evolving Into Multi-Dimensional Consciousness

    I invite those reading this or listening, to take a couple deep breathes into the center of your chest, visualize arriving at a temple, and even before removing your shoes, wrap up any judging, any agendas of what you may think this is, and any notions about what belief is and take that folded...

    Is it possible to have non-linguistic thoughts?

    Okay, time for a new philosophy thread. "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. All I know is what I have words for." Ludwig Wittgenstein Do you agree? Or do you think it's possible to "think" outside of language? And if so, how? The floor is open. :)

    Typing: Philosophy

    @Ren if you would like to be in charge of this thread, please say so. if not, I'll have the staff delete this thread. This is the first in a series of threads I'll be making for typing that isn't directly related to MBTI, but is better than buzzfeed quizzes

    [INFJ] The Rule Riders: Rebels With Just Cause

    This post isn't just about spirituality and religion, yet I stashed it in here as to avoid confusion, maybe. We are all on a quest to 'find ourselves'. We all have to respect the societal rules that are often a heavy imposition for us to obey. This is how a Rebel is concieved. So, as the poll...

    INFJs and Religious/Spiritual Affinities

    Hello, my people. I haven't been here in quite a while, and much has happened since then. This site has actually been very helpful in defining my identity.

    "I am human" Yes you are. I would be thinking that you are! Human as, when you look in the mirror, you are more than what meets the eye. We could almost say there are two "you".
