I'd also go further and add that not only does the object look a particular colour in a particular light, but that that object IS that particular colour in that particular light (from a particular perspective, of course). The object's properties are being directly affected by the properties of the light source, which is affecting the properties of our perception of the object. So the object is "blue" in one kind of light, and "green" in another kind of light, and so on. — numberjohnny5
What is it about computation, or translations from some sets of symbols to other sets of symbols, that could produce a state of conscious awareness? — jkop
Think about it though, if you had control over what one persons actions effected other peoples realities like that you could have quite a lot of control over the entire population while at the same time being completely non-existent to every human being alive. — intrapersona
If each 'phenomenal world' is entirely dependent on its 'experiencer' then this kind of causal interaction is impossible. — csalisbury
An experience is a biological phenomena: the identification of something, not an expression of it (eg with pen and paper). — jkop
When physics predicts results that have not been empirically verified it is because these predictions exist as a result of the formal logic.
This was what lead to the acceptance of GR in particular, the formal logic predicted things that were eventually empirically verified.
It more like a two way street.
We make formal logic models, and then verify them from observation and vice versa. — m-theory
will be honest, I have no interest in why you believe that what you said is valid. — m-theory
You think the brain has some non-physical aspect to it? — tom
If red is undecidable then Chalmers should not know if he is or is not experiencing it. — m-theory
Denial of known physics is always an option, particularly when there are no consequences that matter. — tom
I must admit I do not follow you here.
I don't understand why how this is the case? — m-theory
Except that physicalism explains reality with formal logic. — m-theory
No I am saying it is not possible to abstract anything from elusive subjective access. — m-theory
If you are not then you have no well formed logical method to define self. — m-theory
Subjectivity is abstracted from a necessary objectively existent dichotomy. — m-theory
As sure as you are that there is self, you are necessarily just as sure that there is a not self. — m-theory
To doubt entails that something must that doubts. — m-theory
If I am certain that you exist, it is because there is an effective procedure such that it is not logically possible to doubt that you exist. — m-theory
