April 2014[edit]

Hello Arnlodg. Please note that P. D. Ouspensky's works are not reliable sources. I noticed that you also edit an IP editor (76.89.157.83). Please read WP:SOCK. --Omnipaedista (talk) 05:03, 29 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ouspensky and IP editors, never again, thanks...Are you able to change the Involution (philosophy) oneself-itself contradiction , why not undo the oneself then, thanks
See wiktionary:oneself#Pronoun. An object is not a person. --Omnipaedista (talk) 20:32, 29 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Then the problem is...the classification on the main page article for involution as (philosophy) should be changed to (philosophy of mind), or add to main page article a "classification" for (philosophy of mind)"...why...the referenced philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Henri Bergson were primarily philosophers about "human persons" and Bergson a Nobelist...involution of evolution is post modern philosophy,thanks Arnlodg (talk) 21:20, 30 April 2014 (UTC)arnold— Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.171.127.41 (talk) 20:22, 30 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The article is about the use of the term in philosophy in general. I just added a source that links the term with Bergson and Deleuze. --Omnipaedista (talk) 20:38, 30 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm DVdm. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Time, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Please use the talk page Talk:Time to explain what this edit was about, and also please realise that open wikis are not considered to be wp:reliable sources for Wikipedia. Thanks. - DVdm (talk) 20:38, 2 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note - For the same reason I also undid this edit in the article Observation. - DVdm (talk) 20:42, 2 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please do not add or significantly change content without citing verifiable and reliable sources, as you did with this edit to Time. Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. DVdm (talk) 20:45, 2 June 2014 (UTC) Thank you..Are you saying this second cite (neuroscience for kids-synesthesia...) was not a reliable source If so I will stop editing altogether and explore reference desk, ThanksReply[reply]

Information icon Please stop using talk pages such as Talk:Observation for general discussion of the topic. They are for discussion related to improving the article; not for use as a forum or chat room. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. See here for more information. Thank you. - DVdm (talk) 09:37, 3 June 2014 (UTC) I give up on Wikipeadea's work with Observation, thanks for all your time...Reply[reply]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Outline of thought may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Disambiguation link notification for July 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Outline of thought, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Body, Sensation and Involution (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Request reason:

Aparently Decontruction has been my point of view and the presumption that Talk pages would would affirm or deny edits in progressions of thought...Wikipedia has a host of questions about Deconstruction...these questions should Reference the Ways of Yoga, Monks and Fakirs-and modern interpretations of those Ways (not easy) Thank you...(talk) 00:18, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that

  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you

Retired or not? Continued pattern of violation of WP:NOTFORUM[edit]

I see that admin Doug Weller placed a {{retired}} template on your user page and unblocked you quite a while ago. If you intend to edit Wikipedia again, I suggest you get rid of that template to avoid confusion.

Unfortunately, some of the edits you have been making recently, such as those at Talk:Knowledge and Talk:Western esotericism, appear to be a continuation of the pattern of attempting to use talk pages as an opinion forum. I've removed the sections you added and am warning you that if you continue this sort of disruptive editing, you may be blocked. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 05:35, 28 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Doug was right, I am retired, never again, thanks, Arnold

Hello, Arnlodg. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Practice and ways".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. JustaZBguy (talk) 21:01, 22 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

March 2019[edit]

You are making or proposing idiosyncratic edits over multiple articles without proper references. You are also not following conventions on indenting comments. Please stop and follow good practice - you've already been blocked for this type of behaviour and if it carries on I will put in a request at ANI for the ban to be reinstated -----Snowded TALK 07:12, 7 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This set of edits is yet another illustration of the behaviour. -----Snowded TALK 06:55, 16 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Problems with edits[edit]

Hi Arnlodg,

I'm not sure how to put this, but your edits aren't helpful. The problem isn't just references; it is, put bluntly, bad writing. It's great that you want to improve Wikipedia, but as it stands, you aren't doing so. I would suggest laying off and, if you absolutely must contribute, keeping things simple and readable. SnowFire (talk) 19:21, 1 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've just had to waste time removing inappropriate additions of 'see also' over multiple articles and also revert you making changes to comments on a talk page to which other editors had already responded. I'm sure you are well intentioned but its only a matter of time (unless you change) before you're competence to edit here is questioned by community. -----Snowded TALK 04:40, 27 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And you just carry on! I'm on the verge of asking that your previous indefinite ban to be restored on the basis that you haven't learnt anything since you were reinstated. -----Snowded TALK 20:57, 27 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No more see also edits; got it; thanksArnlodg (talk) 21:03, 27 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Only if they are relevant - feel free to check first-----Snowded TALK 22:05, 27 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Last warning - your competence to edit here is in question given what you just did on the self-awareness article. Just look at your talk page. Its a succession of rejected articles and warnings for using wikipedia as a forum for your idiosyncratic views. If you don't understand how wikipedia works ask for help - find a mentor and check your edits with them first, work in areas where you don't have strong opinions and there is no risk of original 'research'. There are options open to you please take them -----Snowded TALK 06:49, 28 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmm I also noticed some edits and tried to understand them but am not sure what to make of it, unfortunately. I've not checked the background, but is Snowded your sponsor? If not, maybe it would be appropriate to find one to discuss those edits with before applying them... I otherwise anticipate a sad situation for the future like a topic ban or block if this persists. On the other hand I don't think I see obvious edit warring. It's more that most if not all edits need to be reverted... —PaleoNeonate – 22:03, 10 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK - per the interaction with Doug on my talk page. If you want to continue editing the suggestion is that you are mentored. I'm happy to attempt that or you could seek someone else. -----Snowded TALK 07:47, 14 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK- where/how do I ask you, if a paper I have found in PhilPapers, could be used as a citation; I found PhilPapers (to cite) because of your work, it seems to be popular modern research about philosophical and psychological attitudes towards self knowledge...Here we go, one step at a time, thanks.Arnlodg (talk) 15:07, 14 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Give me a link and tell me what edits you want to make with it -----Snowded TALK 18:36, 14 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not seeing ANY change in behaviour so far. I've had to revert every edit you've made and you haven't asked for advice BEFORE making any of them. -----Snowded TALK 05:36, 20 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, I don't seem to actually know how to contact you, to ask for advise--I've clicked on your name but that doesn't seem to lead anywhere, I will not edit anymore till I have learned how to contact you, OK.

On "being here now"[edit]

I respond to your reply on Talk:Mental state here since it would be off-topic there. It could be that you mean by "being here now" something akin to mindfulness or meditation. In that case: it is something that is associated more with eastern spirituality and less with philosophy. Phlsph7 (talk) 19:26, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

.You've taken me back to the mid sixties, and in book stores then self knowledge was the hot topic of the day; one author seemed-couldn't take it any more and got published a book titled "Be or BE" with only blank pages for content...Does this kind of experience fit with mindfulness and meditation, to me it was just being alive and sorta the Socratic way of philosophy; that was over 50 years ago... .I am not a teacher but mindfulness, meditation, cognition, perception by themselves are impressions akin to inner living, which(I hazard our conversation), seem towards one's own self being here now...I'll be on the road for two weeks, If this conversation keeps going...it may be sporadicArnlodg (talk) 22:30, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
