    Greetings! Time for the annual fundraiser.Sorry for the late update, we normally start this early in October. Funds are needed to keep II and IIDB online. I was not able to get an IIDB based donations addon implemented for this year, I will make sure to have that done for next year. You can help support II in several ways, please visit the Support Us page for more info. Or just click:

    I will try to track all donations from IIDB. Many thanks to those that have already donated. The current total is $903. If everyone dontated just $5, we would easily hit our goal.

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    determinism Let me be clear. Reality I mean: Reality: the sum or aggregate of all that is material or existent within a system - the system all things physical in existence - as opposed to that which is only imaginary or not beyond our material grasp. The term is also used to refer to the...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Understanding can explain things but do they really explain things. For instance will the impact of another instance of all the energy in the big bag produce another identical universe? If so , why waste our time on multiple universes if what takes place is identical to that which took place...

    Compatibilism: What's that About?

    Riiight. Fortunately another observation works better. There is no God!

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Isn't that cute. You claim little knowledge of psychology - your denial of knowing an alleged father of psychology - then you use the work of a relativity minor psychologist as your "ode de triumph". The world is full of pragmatists. Not one of them ever contributed to our increased...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Reality, the whole of existence. It isn't beyond our ability to know? ARE YOU SERIOUS! We live on a dot in another bigger dot in a system of bigger dots that that seem to be organized into even bigger systems of dots. They are beyond our ability to even see remotely, much less experience...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Reality is only approached by those subject to it, never told nor realized. It is beyond the observer's kin to fathom reality. Full stop. It is for this reason that there is relevance to subjective experience. It is all we have unless we tie what we believe to what is known. What is known...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    It should have because it is a strong example of examination of neural processing objective scientific rather than subjective introspective technique. To wit: ‘Introspectionism’ and the mythical origins of scientific psychology https://cspeech.ucd.ie/Fred/docs/historyOfPsychology.pdf It is a...

    Bravo. A couple citations. Now explain them. Here is a recent Eaglemen paper If you read Eagleman experimental papers carefully you'll find that sense models are improved by new sense information adding or modifying existing sense templates repeatedly throughout the cortex generating...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    A liberal dose of word salad incomprehensible logic, and a tone of declaration on the rump of the sacrificed calf. Please give us one model, verified (materially substantiated) , that stands up as a model of reality created by and resident in the brain that remains fairly constant over even...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Spin up/spin down quantum mechanics and probabilistic representation happenstance of one of many possibilities and choosing a random subject to make an order at a restaurant of the many possibilities at a random space-time. I don't see the difference. Neither is the state of affairs when...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    Bad hearing Marvin Edwards. I said causes are passed on in any sequence. That would be caused by there being something other than determinism operating. Determinism is controlled by "... everything after time t=0 ... are fixed by natural law." You have just rewritten the definition of...

    Imagining "Indeterminism"

    I have a single response to all your protestations. I never said we caused anything. I said we react. If other things react to our reactions that only suggests whatever caused us to react also caused others to react to our reaction. We are but players in what caused us to react we never take...

    Books that dramatically changed the way you think

    Until you've read Ebrahem Saidy's "Translations of Erotic Arabic Poetry from the Ninth and Tenth Century" you haven't read anything.
