Spock or Sherlock?
How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
- Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930)

Spock or Sherlock?
Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930)'s quote, "How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?". The titled responsion is...
A story within a story or blended characters scattered across popular culture? The influence is manifest, Vulcan and inductive reasoning persist with the outcomes predictive and the crime solved. Episodic epistemology!
Is there a difference between Spock and Sherlock Holmes? Can one be considered to be superior to the other? This can be a very difficult question to answer. Both men were great detectives, both made many discoveries, and both had similar characters.
To begin with, the first thing that people who are considering making the choice between Spock or Sherlock Holmes should do is take a look at both characters. Both were brilliant scientists. They also had some very similar personalities. Both were extremely clever. And while they both did not seem to have any emotions, both had a great deal of admiration for the things that were extraordinary.
So, why is it that Spock was so much more intelligent than Sherlock? In order to understand the answer to this question, you must understand the two characters. The main difference between them is that in order to be able to make such an amazing discovery, either character would need a whole team. They would also have to keep a close watch on all the important details to make sure that nothing happened to their discovery. And, of course, they would need to make sure that the other person did not discover their discovery first.
That does not mean that Spock or Sherlock was less talented. In fact, both men have very large imaginations. They often worked with more than one person in order to create the discoveries that they made. They would often create theories and predictions. This included everything from the theory that the Earth was flat to the theory that aliens were visiting the planet from another planet. They would also try to figure out the laws of science that might have something to do with their findings.
Of course, with a much smaller amount of imagination, they could just as easily come up with a theory that would fit perfectly with the evidence that they already had. This is not the case when you consider the ability that both men had. They were able to come up with many different ideas based on what they already had. They were able to put these ideas into practice.
Worldly not Wordy
Inspired by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955)'s quote, "The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself." The titled responsion is "Worldly not Wordy". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?
Inspired by Oswald Spengler (1880-1936)'s quote, "When one convinces oneself that that one knows the soul of an alien culture from its workings in actuality, the soul-image underlying the knowledge is really one’s own soul-image. New experiences are readily assimilated into the system that is already there, and it is not surprising that in the end, one comes to believe that one has discovered forms of eternal validity." The titled responsion is...
At long last, the human psyche faces its own inclination. By broadening the data hypothetical worldview, the instructive idea of cognizance is revealed. This offers to ascend to the absolute first conventional depiction of cognizance. In endeavors to connect the gap between the target and emotional, researchers and scholars have opened up to the unspeakable. The idea of cognizance, as has been recommended by antiquated Eastern and shamanic conventions, is fundamentally widespread and basic.
The idea of other worldliness is crawling again into science. Moving towards a more exact investigation, the puzzler of insight is examined, emerging in decentralized frameworks and even in lifeless structures. At that point, the amazing restorative impacts of hallucinogenics is found, close to a horde of supernatural planes of being, available to unadulterated cognizance.
Pleasant Allusions of the Will
Inspired by Walter Benjamin (1892-1940)'s quote, "To be happy is to be able to become aware of oneself without fright.". The titled responsion is...
Self-awareness should be coupled with knowledge. If you recall my use of should is a watch-word to an ethical claim and in this case, my ethical claim has origins in the Socratic dictum of knowing thyself! Indifference to this knowledge is a perversion, a hatred of self brought to us by the indifferent perspective of Elie Wiesel.
Reductio Ex Nihilo
Inspired by Thomas Sowell (1930-present)'s quote, "People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.". The titled responsion is...
"Nothing originates from Nothing", this is an announcement numerous Christians make to demonstrate that God exists. No one but God can make something from Nothing in their brains. In any case, I like to bring up, IF nothing originates from nothing where did God get the material he expected to make things? In the event that nothing originates from nothing, at that point even God needed to have something, to begin with!
