Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

I don't think the feedback loop and inferential cognition of reality is inherent to "all interaction with reality" at all. Related to that, I don't think the mind must perceive-cognize reality, even with the sort of specificity demanded in science, "through a spatial-temporal represe...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

This is really a subtle dynamic which occurs with the intellect. I only came to understand it recently myself. The intellect projects itself onto the entire world, and then, only after that, it concludes its own way of thinking cannot capture the richness of Reality itself. But our soul inherently ...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

When you say Mind "falsely assumes that it 'recreates internally the total perceptual content which exists externally'", are you then implying this is why Mind cannot, in principle, know itself? In other words, Mind tries to recreate the total content within its dissociated boundaries, an...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

The manuscript you shared reflects my position well. I think I should reaffirm that — as per my view — the mind doesn’t “recreate internally the total perceptual content which exists externally”, but falsely assumes that it does…(Hence why that anomaly has proven so deceptive ;)). And this is an imp...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

Ok so Principle 1 is simply stating that the OP is "mind", which is the a priori assumption you are making? Because at the beginning you say - "By defining consciousness as an entity which experiences, 4 principles of mind can be derived which gives rise to all experiential phenomena...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

1 - What does it mean for there to be an "entity" which is "equal" to Reality? It seems the word "entity" assumes a static 'thing' which observes all that seems 'external' to it, which then implies a dualism which we could think of as "static thing vs. evolving ex...

Re: Principles of Mind and Philosophy

Thanks for the initial feedback. I will try to be more specific in what I hypothesize this theory explains.

Principles of Mind and Philosophy

In this essay, I hypothesize that an explanation for all experiential phenomena can be reduced to 4 basic principles of mind and philosophy. These principles of mind and philosophy are consistent with Bernardo Kastrup's philosophy of analytic idealism. What I have hopefully done here is organize Kas...

Re: Argument for free will (Similar to Kastrup's)

It seems to me one major problem in "free will" debate is that people just assume it is self-evident what that means and everyone else shares their definition. Good point. At some point I will clarify why I choose that definition. But I am still unclear on what exactly that means, namely ...

Argument for free will (Similar to Kastrup's)

I recently read Bernardo Kastrup's argument in favor of free will that he posted on his website, and it greatly resembled an argument that I posted onto the publishing platform "medium". I think that my way of formulating the argument might be of interest to Mr. Kastrup and others on this ...
