What is the difference between experiential/intentional and
substantial/extended other than a vague and undefined reference to some
imaginary 3p? What I experience is 'substantial to me', at least for a
moment until what ever it was vanishes again as new data arrives. What
is intensional to me, as in, X implies Y where X does not equal Y or X
is not the same as Y, other than a difference in quantity; the same kind
of difference that one end of a yardstick has from the other end, when
we abstracted away the variances.
So the one associated with yardsticks is easily represented as a
scalar value, but isn't every thing substantial quantifiable in some way
too? We sometimes fall prey to misplaced categorization...
