    Anybody else believe in a set of mixed or a fusion of philosophies? I have stoicism, scientism, and Christianity and still manufacturing my belief system. I recommend that people investigate philosophies more and try to form their own belief system instead of confirming to one belief system that society tries to limit you to. What do you all think of philosophical fusion?

    In a sense, we all do that to some degree to create our world view. What you speak of is syncretism. The downside is, it is difficult for one to really appreciate any one belief system in depth, settling often for the superficial of that philosophy/religious system. Society doesn't limit you; we limit ourselves or allow ourselves to be limited. But being limited is not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes FOCUS is quite necessary for success/progress.

    I disagree I try to get as many philosophies in debt as I can I'm just trying to develop some patience for it XD Thanks for the lesson on focusing and limits I got another good lesson in philosophy icon_cool.gif Do you study philosophies often?
