I don't believe this is a parsable question. It implies some sort of transcendence; I can't get that far.
What is our objective purpose in this world?
Do you mean this in the Aristotelian sense or in the common sense?
What is the greatest intellectual lesson you've learned thus far?
The meaning of a proposition is the method of its verification.

Alternatively, most people are wrong, and consensus is meaningless.
What is the greatest emotional lesson you've learned thus far?
Emotions are much less trustworthy than intuitions.

Do you mean this in the Aristotelian sense or in the common sense?

Both senses (now I'm curious to see what the difference is, for you, between the two). I'm already familiar with Aristotle's response to this matter too, does yours differ?

What is the greatest intellectual lesson you've learned thus far?
The meaning of a proposition is the method of its verification.

How fitting!

Alternatively, most people are wrong, and consensus is meaningless.

Aye, a lesson that leads to greater wisdom indeed.

What is the greatest emotional lesson you've learned thus far?
Emotions are much less trustworthy than intuitions.

Interesting. I agree, but am curious - what led you to this conclusion?

What is the greatest spiritual lesson you've learned thus far?
Deus sive natura

Ohhh I didn't know you subscribe to that school of thought. I've borrowed slightly from this myself when forming my own position on spiritual matters.

Considering the current state of the world, if you were given absolute power and freedom to change the world for the better, what would be your course of action?
If I was elected world leader, I would ask for a recount.

Lol

Eliminate the ideas of globalism and multiculturalism, instill cultural nationalism, enforce property rights, and take ideas seriously.

Interesting. I agree with enforcing property rights and taking ideas seriously (while additionally being an open-minded leader to all sides of a matter or issue) and also think cultural nationalism is somewhat important, but I'm curious to know why you are against globalism.
