Vr izadi everything we know comes either from ourselves or the things we forgot their origins ... in ourselves, e.g., our limits & freedoms.

and things we do not know, where do they come from?

Not at all sure that Nietzsche really believed in cause and effect. Read Arendt's Life of the Mind on this. Also Pollard's 'Nietzsche's Footfalls'.

even the things we don't know come from our environment. i don't think there is any other source

what could have caused our environment?

Perhaps we should define "environment" before continuing.


Harendera Chauhan Human behavior and nature are the main cause factors which affects our environment and this goes vice-verse.

Soroosh Two of the important themes of the book are the relationship between knowledge and life which is very important for a project like Foucault's, and the Spinozist theme of ethics vs morality.

maybe not relevant to the conversation but interesting nonetheless, also ties in to Nietzsche views on nature and the universe.

The biomass of planet earth is approximately 560 billion tons, and the planet doesn't care if it's compost or humans.

Hello, I'm D. Michael Poppe, I am 70, so I'm very wise. I was an artist for many years and then wrote a couple of novels. I'm an atheist, cynic, nihilist, protagonist, dreamer, oh, and idiot. I've read a lot of brainy books and I still don't have the answers. So I hope you talk like fools but eventually get to the truth.
I look forward to getting to know you all.
