    1. From a philosophical point of view, anything is possible, even the impossible. This, however, raises the difficult question of whether the impossible exists. If it doesn't exist, then it's impossible. So it turns out that the impossible is impossible. But we started with the fact that everything is possible, and therefore the impossible. We have come to an unsolvable contradiction. Was it all just idle talk?
    2. From a philosophical point of view, everything is empty talk. Even that-and especially that-which many consider to be something meaningful and useful. If only because these many people not only do not think, but do not even think to think — about what is meaningful and useful, why they are exactly like this, and whether they can be different.
    3. On the other hand, any nonsense and even a deliberately meaningless set of signs [sound, visual or otherwise] can be endowed with meaning. Man has two wonderful qualities-apophenia and pareidolia. So if you look long enough into any chaos, you will certainly find some order and meaning there.
    4. On the fifth hand, the very juxtaposition of empty and meaningful can be false. Even such a careless category as “point of view” can lead you into the most pernicious delusion, which can cost you your immortal soul, not to mention other, more fragile details of your composite. In this case, can your question itself be considered dangerous idle talk? Back to the first point.
  1. It depends on the philosophy: no one has exclusive rights to use words.

    Hermas, apologist of the second or third century, on the philosophers:

    “…When they tear my soul apart, … subject me to various transformations, I confess that such transformations create disgust in me. Now I am immortal, and I rejoice; now I am mortal, and I weep; now they decompose me into atoms: I become water, I become air, I become fire… – If philosophers differ in this way in the doctrine of the human soul, all the more could they not tell the truth about the gods or about the world”

  2. In my view, philosophy is the distinction between the real and the apparent, so that empty talk occurs when the speaker or writer of words does not doubt the truth of what is being expressed… (because the subject can only be sure that something seems to him…)
