  1. I just now realized that the prompt in the upper right sign-in block raises some metaphysical questions. The prompt is not for "Registered User" or "Approved Customer." It asks if you are an Existing User. Is it not metaphysically impossible to be a non-existing user? And would it not be a logical contradiction to attempt to be an existing non-user if you were using the site at this moment, regardless of your contractual status? For one thing, you can view without signing in. I do that, sometimes, just to see what is happening. And the site software does allow you to log in anonymously, does it not? And if you just view the homepage and click off, you have still used, and are therefore an existing user (of low engagement).
  2. A proper philosophy doesn't just enlighten and empower the mind -- it strengthens the heart and uplifts the soul. It develops and expands a person's interior. It beautifies the psyche and enriches the spirit. Philosophy does all this directly, thru its ethics, and indirectly, thru politics. It also does so quite powerfully via art -- especially drama and music. Philosophy makes you a higher, finer, better person. It encourages, inspires, and uplifts. Philosophy helps bring out your truest and best self. It ennobles and sanctifies your soul. A true, rational, sound, coherent, intelligent, insightful, wise, good, and great philosophy will leave you prosperous, thriving, healthy, and happy. It will make you vivacious, dynamic, heroic, and even godlike. A high-quality philosophy improves a person's nature, character, and essence. And the best philosophy has a spirituality which will show you life at its deepest, widest, strongest, truest, and best. This spirituality is lofty, noble, and sacred. It is dedicated, in large part, to the sublime, transcendent, and infinite. Spirituality of this kind provides belief in today, and hope for the future. It generates confidence and tranquility. A proper philosophy provides clear purpose and deep meaning for your unique, irreplaceable, priceless existence. Human beings, at their finest, are demi-godly creatures that live like dynamos, heroes, and legends. A truly spiritual being will at least try to have all, do all, and be all. To know, experience, achieve, and enjoy everything. To conquer reality and rule the universe. True spirituality involves genuine internal beauty. It combines a delicate sweetness and psychological loveliness with robust vigor and ferocious energy. A proper and ideal spirituality requires and involves a high level of intelligence, consciousness, motivation, desire, volition, and will. Spirituality enhances animation, energy, determination, and focus. It cheers and steels you. Spirituality is the profound unity of reason and emotion -- of powerful thinking and strong passion.
