(1) ideals are involuntary, and never nonnally topic to direct voluntary regulate. for example i will not think at will that my trousers are on fireplace, or that the Dalai Lama is a dwelling God, no matter if you pay me a large number of cash for believing such issues. (2) ideals are nonnally formed via facts for what's believed, until they're, in a few experience, irrational. normally a trust is rational whether it is proportioned to the measure of facts that one has for its fact. during this experience, one frequently says that "beliefs target at fact" . reason why it truly is, at the face of it, irrational to think opposed to the facts that one has. a topic whose ideals should not formed via a priority for his or her fact, yet by way of what she desires to be the case, is kind of a wishful philosopher or a self-deceiver. (3) ideals are context self sufficient, within the feel that at one time an issue believes anything or doesn't think it; she doesn't think it relative to 1 context and never relative to a different. for example if i think that Paris is a polluted urban, i will not think that on Monday and never on Tuesday; that will be a metamorphosis of trust, or a metamorphosis of brain, yet no longer a case of believing something in a single context and one other factor in one other context. If i feel whatever, the assumption is extra or four much less pennanent throughout a variety of contexts.
