Well, is there an opposite for everything?

Gregory
Huh? No. The vast majority of things don't have an opposite.

leonheartmm
i suppose in some sense ur right.

Mindship
Wouldn't the opposite of Everything be Nothing?

debbiejo
I believe so, everything has an opposite.......Yin/Yang, cause effect, Sowing/Reaping, fear/love, up/down, visible/invisible, male/female, ...etc...also cyclical....

A lot of things exist in duality. Black/white, heaven/hell, matter/antimatter, fire/water, earth/air. Even the seven deadly sins have their opposites. There's the color wheel, which is constructed from opposites. Day/night, dusk/dawn, sun/moon, silver/gold.

In general, opposites exist in the natural world, not really in the modern one.

Evil Dead
ofcourse not everything has an opposite.

take humans. What is the opposite of me, Evil Dead, Jeff personally?

If the opposite of everything is nothing, then nothing has an opposite.

Nothing is not the opposite of everything because they are both something.

So everything doesn't have an opposite then, and neither does nothing.

Of course there are "Polar opposites".........And even with Asexual organisms............there IS STILL AN OPPOSITE within there/that body.

What the hell...There is "Cause and Effect"..............These are opposites.............It's in science.........it's in frickin everything........cycles...............

Do you mean every action has an equal but opposite reaction?

Newton's Third law of Motion
To every action (force applied) there is an equal but opposite reaction (equal force applied in the opposite direction).

Nothing is more the absence of everything, rather than the opposite of everything.

Evil Dead
Shaky already covered the laws of motion....which apply to forces...



cause and affect are not oposites. I strike a match (cause).....the friction causes the match head to catch fire (affect). A match head catching fire is not the opposite of a match being struck.

Certain abstracts supposedly don't have opposites. But don't quote me on that because it is a sound bite from a lecture I wasn't meant to be in, and I didn't actually know what it meant.

Abstract whats I don't know.

Atlantis001
That is an interesting way to think ! The opposite of a "dog" is a "non-dog". In one sense they are opposites, depends on how you see the question.

I think the problem is in the definition of opposite, there are many ways to understand what it is.

I think of it as opposite as positive negative. Something like dog - non dog. Non-dog is lots of things.

Of course there is an opposite to everything. How can there not be.

An opponent or antagonist.
An antonym.

Opposite of something that IS, is something that ISN'T that. How complicated is that.

Something is something, because its not the other.

It's very simple. It's also complete nonsense. No wonder you think everything has an opposite, since by your definition, every thing is the opposite of every thing else.

Almost nothing has a real opposite. The opposite of light is darkness? Nuh uh. Darkness is just what you get when there isn't any light. If we associated light with the real numbers, and gave a lightwave a "lightness rating" of ten, darkness would be nothing more impressive then zero. The opposite of light--antilight, with a rating of negative ten--does not exist.

Holly shit Sherlock!! No way!

.....

Opposite of light is darkness, and you just said so. Absence of Light equal darkness. Light is opposite of dark.

When there is NO light there is dark.

Dark = no light. (refer to my otehr list)

Dark is opposite of light. Absence of one, creates the other.
Its a perfect opposite in fact.

Gregory
Way. I don't know why I'd want to continue a conversation with you after that, but I just told you why I disagree with that. You can read my post as many times as you want, if you didn't catch it the first time.

Absence of something is not the same as opposite. Zero is not the opposite of five, whatever you seem to think. Darkness is not the opposite of light.

FoxMeister
Opposite is like something positive/negative. It's vague but it is an opposite. To find an opposite to an object like a spoon you would need something living that is not metal and not spoon shaped. You have to narrow it down by asking these type of questions until you have something that is a perfect opposite. Anyone understand because I am still not sure. Cat. Has hair, has whiskers, lives, not metal. Perfect opposite of spoon. But there are more animals that have that.
So i think everything has an opposite

Shakyamunison
An electron has an opposite, it is called an anti-electron. They are the same but their charge is different; one is positive and one is negative. So, the opposite of light would be a photon with a different charge then a standard photon, and that does not exist.

Wow...I can't even say much besides...BULLSHIT

Come on now, even you must realize how stupid that view is.

What is No Bardock? Nothing? Everything that is not Bardock? Is a Piece of paper the opposite of Bardock? Let me give you the answer there...NO. It's not. There is no opposite to it...


And five has two opposites? Hahahaha. Haha. Ha?

Opposite is not the absence of something. It is...well..the opposite.

To be the opposite of something every part of it has to be the opposite to it. Not just the existence. It needs opposite character. Opposite ideas. Opposite Hair Colour. And that's all not possible. Because there is no opposite to hair colour. There's no absolute line to judge it on. It'S just not.

There's not an opposite to everything. FACT.

Can someone smart also explain the ignormi here that they are wrong? Please? I doubt they will believe me. Although they are clearly wrong.

Oh...you meant like no opposites at all then? Because clearly the opposite of a cat is not a dog...same for apples and oranges.

If you were asking if one could make up a fake opposite for everything..then yes. The opposite of a knife could be a lake then...and of a phone maybe soy sauce...but what does that help?

The opposite of one thing is something which is completely different in the most extreme way, but only in regard to the relevant aspect(s) to it, ergo one thing can have more than one opposite.

Thanks for that, so, we need the noun there for a second (an opposite)

1. One that is opposite or contrary to another.

Hmm contrary to another. Okay, Chocolate, The Smiths, Shakyamunison, Buddha, Sprite, Books, a purple lion all have such an opposite. I mean what is the one that is contrary to Buddha.

2. An opponent or antagonist.

Does everyone have an opponent? What about a new born baby, or one that is not known by anyone else that could be an opponent? Lets just say not everyone has an opponent.

3. An antonym.

An antonym "is a word opposite in meaning to another"

Since most of the things included in everything are not "words", I guess that's a no as well (besides not every word has an antonym either, so there already the "everything has an opposite" theory is shot down)


Fair enough, are we done now? Anyone else going to claim that everything has an opposite besides that obviously not being the case?

Everything has a duality - something which is opposite to something else, IE, what it isn't. The fricking deffinition tells you so.

The problem is that there are so many definitions of opposite that both everything does and everything does not have an opposite can be true.

I can't get over Bullshit. Either there is an opposite or there isn't. There not being an opposite is for example the opposite of their being an opposite, so in this case there is an opposite.

Again Bardock, the opposite of a piano is a non piano.

Night - day
male - female
creative - non creative
dog - non dog
fries - non fries
trees, non trees
Spirit - no spirit
Rich - poor ( or your view of rich and poor)
aggressive - passive
Happy - sad
owned - free
Attracted - non Attracted
Beer - non beer
Secure - non secure
Stable - non stable
Judgement - non judgement
North Pool - South Pole
Yes - No
God - No god
Faith - No faith
Asexual - non sexual
20 plus - 20 minus
Gravity - non gravity



Simple actually IMO.

Mathamatics does show this so.

Right, you cannot think anything which is ''altogether different in nature'' to a piano.

By your logic, everything else, is the same, or similar to piano, and thus, it doen't have an opposite.

No, just something that is different from a piano is the opposite of it. For example a cat just isn't the opposite of a piano. If you think that you are stupid.

Look, the matter of the fact is that a Piano doesn't have an opposite. There is no "no-piano" it doesn't exist. The opposite is not the rest of a set.

Look your "no-something" replies don't prove shit, since those "no-something things do not exist. I mean even rich and poor are at most artificial opposites I mean what is the opposite of having 10.000 dollars that. Is it having no money? HAving 10. 000 debts is it having 20 000 dollars? It doesn't have an actual opposite. Oh and just for the record cats are not the opposite of dogs.

Look, we looked at the definition of "Opposite", it does not support your definition, your definition does not exist. Your definition of "opposite" is actually the definition of "complement". Before you go ahead and say it says "complement" in one of the definitions, read again, that is about to things that make up a whole. That is not given.


So still what is the opposite of having 10.000 dollars? What is the opposite of gravity? And I'd still would want you to show me where this opposite of a piano is. I mean you should be able since everything supposedly has an opposite (no it doesn't)

Well a non piano is one that is not a piano. It could be a wind instrument, or brass...........It just isn't a piano.. ..It could be a stick even...........just not a piano...

Awwwh, whats the matter? You're all pissy now, and insluting because you have absolutely NO evidence for what you saying.
Technical term for that is ''talking out of one's ass''. This instance yours.

'kindergarden drop out'? Don't be pathetic.


Show me the evidence which suggest that there could not possibly be an opposite. A deffinition or a theory as to why this is impossible.

You have no grounds for claim apart from your own simple minded logic.


You know what else strikes me mind numbing apart from your arrogance?

You claiming that thousands and thousends of years old philosophy is ''wrong'' and ''stupid'' and basing that claim on absolutely nothing.

debbiejo, its pointless arguing. One thing worst than an ignorant person, is the one who is not willing to learn, or think outside what they have thought up.

Everything has an opposite, and although its not absolute, it is relative.

Apperantly it is sometimes difficult for people to comprehand that.

So your definition of opposite is "Something that is not the other part of the opposite" ...you know that the clue of "opposite" the thing that males it so awesomely useful and the reason why it is still around is because it makes sense the opposite is something TWO particular things may share. If a stick is the opposite of a piano and a cat is the opposite of a stick then a cat is a piano....and we all know that's not true, right?

Oh of course if you want a subjective opposite that's easy, I mean I can make up that the opposite of a piano is a beer can and the opposite of a beer can is a piano. Great I made it up. So everything has an opposite if I made this opposite up? Great useful word this "opposite".

I asked you questions, give me answers. I supported my claim with the actual definition of the word opposite. I am not saying those philosophies are wrong, but guess what, the Chinese don't use the word "opposite" ..it is an English word, it has a definition that you can't just bend because it is the word you have learned in your philosophy classes. Not everything has an opposite, that's a fact. You just like the word "opposite", but it just doesn't mean what you want it to mean, sorry.

No, this is not an abstract thing.

E.g. North -- South

If I travel north, to do the opposite would be to travel south.

Fire does not reverse ice or water, therefore it can't be opposite to either.

Actually, you asked me a civil question in a very rude manner. The best thing for you to do is ignore my posts, if you cannot help but be rude.

And you have no space to talk to me about my attitude, in all honesty.

.....

I did Classical Studies at A-level. We talked about Aristotle. Since then, I have, whenever the time, read a lot on Aristotle, and especially Metaphysics.

Explaining the world is something, i presume a lot of people would be interested in.

Second, idea of ying-yang is pretty wide known. The whole universe is made up of opposing forces, or opposites, each opposing while complimenting each other.

Opposites are never absolute, but relative. ying-yang.


Thus I was backing up my argument with the Metaphysics and Chines e Philosophy, while some people were backing it up with ''It just doens't have opposites''

I was hopping people would come up with a theoretical challenge to either of those philosophies at best. And by challenege, I mean a plausible example of why something cannot be.

Bardock42
Hey, sweety, philosophy is great and all, but the thing is it is wrong in this case. It is wrong because the actual definition of the word "opposite" in the English language does not apply to it. What is closer to the truth would be the word "complement". Those two are not synonymous.

You're assuming that because you've read about some philosophers, you're an authority.

Did it, or does it not occur to you that...you know...other humans also read and have access to books and knowledge? You express an interest in many things and read up on them, splendid. I actually encourage people to learn more in their free time, but that doesn't entitle you to assume that you have some worthwhile and superior knowledge on it.

My claims come from the English language and the definition of the word. Which, well, beats all the shit you could ever read in a book. The word is defined. The way it is defined not everything has an "opposite". That's the end of the story. And nothing is actually backed by Metaphysic, Metaphysics are just not an accurate science, they are putting out an idea and thinking about it. And they certainly don't back anything cause there are very different ideas in the field of Metaphysics. But I see you learned a new word, that's cool.

Coming into a thread on a forum such as this, where most of the debaters will know one another and have talked before, means that judgements based on each others' characters are a simple part of discussion. As for not making a relevent post, AC was challenging the 'base' of your argument. Just because he wasn't previously involved in the discussion doesn't mean he hasn't read the thread.

In fact, I'd be interested to know which part of 'Chinese Philosophy' you based your argument on. Repeatedly stating that you have done so is interesting, but not very helpful. In fact, your first related comment was four pages into your contribution to the discussion, which mainly consisted of you attacking Bardock. Your relevent comments actually changed tack partway through the argument, too, when you changed from a Positive/Negative stance to a more generic 'anything not the piano is the piano's opposite'.

Can you explain exactly why anything that isn't the piano (the mythical non piano) is the opposite of it? I'd argue that only forces and concepts can have true opposites, because everything else that exists within the universe share similarities.

I tolerated Bardock calling me stupid, passing sly comments regarding 'university or kindegarden dropout comments' which were unecessary.

When someone said something back - he called you and AC to visit the thread and be on his side. Hmmm...

I would tell you to refer to the earlier posts and read the thread, but I am pretty sure you have already made up your mind.

At any rate, you can PM me with your concerns regarding what I said and the way I conducted myself - not on the board, please.
Same goes for Bardock anyone else - please use PMs from now on.

....

Second, chinese philosophy of oppoistes Im sure you know. Its ying-yang. The idea that whole universe is made up of the opposing forces - ying and yang. They are not independent and they are not absolute - they are relative, but they all have an opposite.

What is opposite of you - would actually be a female. Becuse you cannot be defined into ''one thing'' neither can your opposite - which would be a little strange.

Matter has less ''absolute'' opposites, and they are far more relative - but existant.

Haha. And there's where your mistake lies. Indeed when Aristotle made up his theories (Aristotle is by no way infallible, by the way) the word "opposite" didn't exist. So he used a different word. IF he had used a word that exactly means "opposite" as it does now exist in the English language he would be wrong, since not everything has an opposite, that happens to be a fact by the way. I can only assume, but you did read them books about Aristotle in English, right?


Also, stop being childish about the topic, it is a discussion and debate topic. That absolutely includes questionings one sources and knowledge about a subject, especially when they pulled their "facts" and an assumed authority right out of their ass.

No, it is rather important. He did not use opposite. We do actually have a word called "opposite" in the English language. It doesn't fit the theory. We shouldn't adjust, bend or simply ignore the actual word in a debate about the word.

If you remember correctly you only replied to one little part of my post where I assumed you probably read about Aristotle in English.


The thrd of the 5 laws I just made up is about polarity

Not everything has its opposite, & opposites don't manifest with a spectrum of polarities between them. Valleys are not the true opposite Mountains, but rather an opposite humankind has made up for a slight difference in distance from the core of the earth . Magnets do actually have opposite poles. People possess varying degrees of strength, intelligence & wisdom which do not fit the term opposite. Yin is complemented by Yang in this theory, and we should especially note the word "complemented". Supreme clarity of mind is required to discern what is actually real of course I just add that to keep the superiority and total control of my theories.


Look, lil bitchiness, quoting some philosophical laws, that are in not supported by actual science, just doesn't make your point any more right. I have something to base my point on. You, well, read a book about someone making a thought experiment.

I am going to be a bigger person here, and not bother quoting you calling me stupid, telling me about im a kindergarden drop out, childish and generaly provoking...etc.

Look back Bardock, you're the one who told me that if I believe something you don't, it makes me stupid.
Drop the magifying glass and pick up a mirror. By every one of my posts, add your post prior to that.

I have asked nicely to drop with the arrogant and rude posts. If you cannot do that, then please do not respond to my posts.

As for your argument. I think it is self explanitary.
You make up your theories, I don't mind. But don't pass them as facts - because they are supported by nothing other than your need to win an internet argument.


If you want to further argue ''what i did to you'' use the PM, not this thread. Try and respect that, if you can.

Yeah, you are the bigger person. No wait, you denied doing it, I didn't. I actually admit to my posts and thoughts and take responsibility for what I do.

Oh my, and there's the hypocrisy again.

They are no more rude than yours. And lets face it you prefer that they are a little more aggressive than usual so you can avoid all points and just go to your stubborn mode...focusing on it, despite yourself being just as rude.

No, I don't make up my theories. Chinese Philosophers make up their theories. I just look at the definition of a word we are talking about and point out what it actually means, no theory will change that. The matter of the fact is not everything has an opposite, given we use the actual definition of the word. The "supported by nothing other than your need to win an Internet argument." was quite rude again, is it your major goal to be a hypocrite, since you achieve it just nicely.

I will reply to you in the way you reply to me (that means if you want to take it to PMs then do so, don't tell me to do it though, you are the one addressing me on the forums so I will reply on the forums). If you want the last word in this thread you have to convince me that you are right, which will be hard, since you are wrong.
