Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, Idealism vs Materialism

https://youtu.be/KVWP8h-KMEI?t=3183 I came across this conversation with Kastrup and from 53:03 and on with the thought experiment of pipes he summarises an objection to materialism that can be risen in the exact same way to HIS philosophy too. So the question of how pipes and valves can give rise t...

Re: (Un)consciousness of breathing?

"Einstein's theories are as stupid as physicalism gets. They are ridiculously wrong" I don't understand. That's a good start. Would you like to understand a little? In Minkowski spacetime nothing computes and any and all motion is impossible, because real numbers don't compute and point-r...

Re: (Un)consciousness of breathing?

So i ask you again, how do you solve the hard problem of consciousness (in order to know how you know things in order to know things). By recognizing that the one thing I experience, without a doubt, is conscious activity and specifically ideating activity (Thinking). Since that activity is fundame...

Re: Anybody willing to defend Kastrup on this? (solipsism and unconsciousness)

don't we have to examine the reasons we have to believe in DID metaphor in the first place? Or Mind At Large? What do you mean by saying "MAL would seem to be unconscious of what is happening in the metacognitive minds of dissociated alters"? Me and you are the dissociated alters, and who...

Re: (Un)consciousness of breathing?

So because i don't know the solution to the hard problem of consciousness i cannot know that earth is round? I cannot know that Santa Claus is imaginary? That's some deep philosophy here... And how you deal with the problems of hard problem? You cannot explain how you know that the Earth is round. ...

Re: (Un)consciousness of breathing?

Some things i know, some things i don't know. And the fact that i do not know the solution to the hard problem doesn't mean that i don't know the solution to all other problems too. It does mean that, because if you cannot get around the hard problem, then you have no explanation for how conscious ...

Re: (Un)consciousness of breathing?

You still are claiming material (I am using "material" from now on to mean any non-conscious process) processes give rise to "aha moment" at some point in this causal chain, and that "aha moment" is qualitative meaning, so you still have to overcome hard problem of how...
