Do you consider inaction to not be action? Is doing nothing actually still doing something?

Does inaction exist?

y/n
#8
Passive aggressively speaking, if I would do nothing and not go to work, some stuff will be different over there.

It's a relative thing I think, if everything would not move, nothing would change.

You'd know about that



Oh please.


You're asking for an answer that is dependent on the definition of a word that has many definitions. Without defining exactly what you mean by action, there is no possible way to answer this question. If you do define action, then it becomes a simple question not worthy of a tryhard thread like this one.

o.k.

It's slow at work and I wanted to make a thread that wasn't about feminism for once.

Sorry that that offense you massa

Inaction is doing nothing because most of the time when you decide to do nothing, you are DECIDING to do nothing.
#15
Why does it even matter.

If you count our biological functioning as an action, then no. You can't do nothing if you're alive.

maybe he's asking the question so he can see how we define action.

as a student of mathematics, these questions are extremely important.

This is the epitome of a pseudo-intellectual question.

some other pseudo-intellectual questions for stew:

is an empty set a set?

may a set contain itself?

is a point a one dimensional curve?

can a plane be a one dimensional curve?

are all logical statements either provable or paradoxes?

is it always possible to chose an element from a non-empty set?

does a 2d shape that measures 0 area actually exist?

I have a hurdy gurdy being built for me right now. Should be here by the end of the year. Flutes are so last year.

maybe you should focus more on english and less on math

Only when you die.


that is not certain. definetly your body is in-action when you die. decomposition and stuff.
