Thanks for section 23 Gary :D Interesting discussion.

two errors noted.

:20 Chapter 27 of Identity and Diversity part 1 – you read chapter 23

4:15 p. 46 each particular existence of them too will be by the same way determined – you read will be made by the same way
You can correct this one or not.

Hi Chad :) You did a great job on a very difficult reading :thumbs:
That was a very long reading and it contained some important ideas about desire happiness pain and the good.

It seems there were many areas where static covered the words you read. According to Pl standards the words are correct so the static can remain but the correction of them will make a better listening experience for a listener. The reading of section 15 was very clear in all parts. Somehow the parts where you may have made corrections were changed to static in your reading of section 16.

One error noticed.
4:35 Which is once purposed to his thoughts – you read superposed

Static here:
1:07 static over by a thought of mind
6:10 he must necessarily prefer one of the other of them – static over this part
8:40 nothing can be of greater use – static over this part
9:00 and entangle their understandings – static over this part
9:26 that freedom consists in the dependence of existence of not existence – static
13:06 which for shortness sake we will call determining of the will – static
15:12 This considered – to- 15: 53 static over words
19:38 Life itself, and all its enjoyments, is a burden cannot be born under the lasting and unremoved pressure of such an uneasiness. Static over this
24:17 p. 240 and the want of all things, even of his beloved drink, attends him in the course he follows. Static
28:45 who yet would be content to take up with their happiness here? Static over this part
30:10 and then we should keep constantly and steadily in or course towards heaven - static
32:09 what it is that determines the will – static
32:32 but all the thoughts of the mind and powers of the mind are uninterruptedly employed that way – static over this sentence - also more later on in that paragraph
37:10 for we producing nothing by our willing it, but some action in our power, it is these the will terminates, and reaches no farther. P.244 static over this section
42:34 great and confessed good - static
42:55 as soon as any good appears to make a part of their portion of happiness, they begin to desire for it. Static
26:00 end of section 16 static– chapter 21 recording by Chad - then you continue for 57 more seconds of silence – only 5 seconds needed at the end.

Let me know what you would like to do or if you have any questions.

Thanks for reading section 8 Patrick :thumbs:

The reading is PLOK.

Did you mean to leave 10 seconds of silence at the end? We only use 5 seconds of silence. So that can be shortened.

Thanks for joining Libivox volunteers :D

Craig
I've reuploaded with only 5 seconds of silence at the end.

How old is the world? - duration and extension

Craig
Hence we see, that some men imagine the duration of the world, from its first existence to this present year 1689, to have been five thousand six hundred and thirty-nine years, or equal to five thousand six hundred and thirty-nine annual revolutions of the sun, and others a great deal more ; as the Egyptians of old, who in the time of Alexander counted twenty-three thousand years from the reign of the sun; and the Chinese now, who account the world three millions, two hundred and sixty-nine thousand years old, or more:
