i dont know=i have to imagine it=I can at best imagine it

kNow=now=matter=true=life=logic=absolute=true=1

i know i am typing these Words on my keyboard and reading them on my screen, i dont have to imagine it

you are light on my screen and a story in my mind

when i am alone, the true size of the human population is 1

false=anywhere beyond my personal physical experience of now, the reflection of nothing while now matters
Daktoria

Con

To translate, my opponent seems to be arguing a self-centered form of solipsism.

The problem with solipsism is it doesn't explain how things happen that the solipsist doesn't intend. Events in reality have origins beyond the solipsist intentions, so there's no need to believe that the world is simply a projection of the solipsist's mind.

I could go on, but this is good enough. Nothing more needs to be said.

Con

I didn't respond before because as I said before, nothing more needed to be said.

By not responding, I showed my opponent that his stimulus into the debate was not necessarily the source of my response. I could choose to respond. This is not a story in his mind. His imagination isn't in control of everything. Just because he is alone somewhere doesn't mean the population everywhere is 1. There is more to the world beyond his personal physical experience.

i dont know what you are talking about really.. clearly my imagination dosnt control everything i am not god in reality..

when i am alOne.. the true size of the human population is 1
Daktoria

Con

My opponent is confusing his sample of personal experience with the general population of reality. Merely experiencing something doesn't mean you've experienced everything. There is more to reality than your own corner of the world.

where do you get this from

Daktoria

Con

It comes from having a sense of time. There's more to be experienced than what you've already experienced, and potential future experienced do not need to be connected to past experiences. They can be developed independently.

>Reported vote: RevNge// Mod action: NOT Removed<

1 point to Pro (Conduct). Reasons for voting decision: ff

[*Reason for non-removal*] Forfeit is a legitimate reason to award conduct. Reminder of forfeit policy: if a debater forfeited only one round, only the conduct point is justified which is what happened here and why the vote passed moderation review. It doesn't matter whether Con argued or not. The arguments point was not awarded. Voters are under no obligation to award points or to justify points that they didn't award. If additional points were awarded, the vote may have been removed. If a debater forfeited nearly all rounds and failed to post any substantial arguments, the debate will not be moderated except for some exceptional circumstances like voting the wrong side.

>Reported vote: imabench// Mod action: Removed<

3 points to Con (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: ff

[*Reason for removal*] (1) Voted the wrong side. Con was the one who forfeited so Pro should get the points. (2) Forfeit is a valid reason to award Conduct, not Arguments.

anywhere beyond now is a question, a question is an unsolved problem, so now is the answer, which is the solution to all questions.*
