Hi Bruno Marchal
As before, there is the natural, undeniable dualism between brain
brain objective and modular
mind subjective and unitary
OK. You can even say:
brain/body: objective and doubtable
soul/consciousness: subjective and undoubtable
The brain can be discussed, the mind can only be experienced.
Exactly. I would say the soul, as the mind can be discussed in
theories, but the soul is much more complex. We can discuss it
through strong assumption like mechanism.
I believe that the only subjective and unitary item in the universe
is the monad. It is the eye of the universe, although for us we
can only perceive indirectly.
I am open to this. The monad would be the "center of the wheel", or
the fixed point of the doubting consciousness.
By Leibniz' definition, a monad would be the entire consciousness,
the "ego" of "i" or "self" of the monad would be the fixed point.
What I wrote was incorrect. The monad is defined by the closure on
the topological space that is dual to the Boolean algebra representing
the consciousness. The "I" is the fixed point that is defined in this
"Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed."
