      I can see how that might be, though I'm not sure that's an accomplishable goal given the unequal footing and arbitrarily reduced...

      It might feel like it's putting the cart before the horse, it can be a time saver at the same time; it can also provide more of a power...

      I suppose so, though it seems to me that approach is putting the cart before the horse. The illusion, it seems to me, is the notion that...

      So many claim to have escaped the cave and been enlightened. As for discussing ethics, difficult to get to until the epistemics have...

      Nope, it's metaphysics. Because we could be talking about panpsychism, hylomorphism, or a number of possibilities beyond simple...

      The metaphysics are superficial to my argument, my argument is purely about justifying what we believe.
