Your complete inability to provide answers to my Truly OPEN and very specific clarifying questions infers that you are misunderstanding what is actually happening here.
Any posts you make criticizing how people respond, criticizing their understanding of your posts, etc. should be automatically deleted. Maybe then you'd have to post some content other than just meta stuff about posting.
But posts where you make claims and you are asked to provide evidence for those claims and you never do, should be automatically kept, correct? And/or, posts you make where you completely misconstrue and misunderstand what I am actually saying, and meaning, et cetera should be also absolutely kept, as well, correct?

Have you ever even considered just asking clarifying questions when I explained to you that you are misunderstanding what I am saying, and meaning? Or has that never even come into consideration. Obviously if you do not open up and change the way you are seeing what I am actually saying, and meaning, then it does not matter how many times I rearrange my words to 'try to' explain to you what I am actually meaning, it will still not be understood.

If I say that a person is not understanding my posts, then that is NOT a criticism, but rather just a statement of fact. If people cannot handle that Truth, then I suggest not coming into a philosophy forum. You can try and shut me up AGAIN, by proposing my post are automatically deleted, but I suggest AGAIN; If you want to make claims, then at least have some thing to back up and support those claims. I also suggest if someone tells you that you are not understanding them, then you listen to them, and at least 'try' to understand them, or alternatively, if you do not want to even want to try to understand them, then just do not communicate with them. SIMPLE REALLY.

Now, to your claims, where have I supposedly criticized how people respond to me? Let us see if you are even capable and thus will back up and support this claim, or not? And then, let us see just how open you are to discussing this further?

I have absolutely no idea what this has to do with anything I have said, and meant. Does this have anything at all to do with what I have said, and meant?

If yes, then what?

None, by the way.

I must wonder whether Zeno’s infinity could be called Zero Infinity. If I embark on a trip to the door, I should consider the length of my hand to reach the knob. Since I’m a constant I could reach the door faster than time reaching Infinity. Unless I procrastinate, there is a crucial point when x= y. Y is the length of my arm. However...It might also depend on velocity. An ant would take longer... or maybe not.

But I want to advertise this and make it ABSOLUTELY VERY CLEAR that I have absolutely NO idea what you are saying here and how this relates to what I have ACTUALLY SAID and MEANT. And, I will KEEP ADVERTISING THIS FACT.

Entities. This which comes before thought I recognized as desire. It will get you there.
