Good. And I should have said, rather than "I cannot prove that",
instead,  "i don't need to prove that any more

The error is never in the perception (Firstness) , for that is what you actually perceive

Your firstness, if it concerns perception is given in 3p, with comp, by Bp & Dt & p. It is the 5th hypostases.

I will stick on the most common use of first person and third person. But as you see we can peobably make sense of Peirce in the comp theory.

```

So Firstness is always true because it contains no words.
Always true means I think Platonia.

The first person has a link with platonia (truth), but is not platonia.

```Secondness can contain an error.
```
```

```
```Contingency.
Thirdness can be a lie.
```
```
```
Lie are the proposition of the type Bf, or BBf, etc. But with comp (and the classical theory of knowledge, so are "dreams", "error" and "death", curiously enough.
```

```
```
Which may help to explain why I believe Peirce's triad
to be necessary if you want completeness.
```
```
```
No problem. Machines might follow Peirce's intuition. But with different vocabulary.

OK.

Only the consciousness root of our subjectivity is undoubtable and cannot been made wrong. The objective is what is doubtable, and indeed science progresses by refuting the objective theories.

OK. But not all the subjective. On some point the subjective can be wrong too.

Comp can prove that for all ideally correct machines, there are true but non expressible fact. And also that there are true, expressible, but non justifiable facts. Machine's subjectivity is very rich and variate.

Hi Roger,

But then why separate them? Why not allowing seriousness in theology. To ease our fear of death? That's the local goal, and it makes sense locally, but it leads to more problems, especially if everyone can access it: no need of authoritative argument. The bible is a venerable human text, but like all prose, it does not need literal interpretation, or we get insane, and let fight between big-enders and small-enders (cf Voltaire).

Our science is based on SOME info we don't know exactly, not even if it is like we think it is. We calculate in our human logic (stupidity would be more accurate) and then comes a newer enlightenment and we change it all. Brent wrote a nice list of such changes lately. I use the classic Flat Earth. But we live happily ever after and before (not knowing if TIME does indeed exist?). And some of us get Nobel prizes. Congrats.

So: happy illusions!

Science is only that. The courage to be stupid, and the hope that this might help to be a little bit less stupid tomorrow.
```
```
But being wrong is, in fact, not really like being stupid. The real stupidity is what persists. It is staying wrong despite evidences. This happens often when people try to measure/judge intelligence and stupidity, especially their own, which makes no sense. We can evaluate special competence, but we can't evaluate intelligence.

It must be an illusion. Either that or MWI is an illusion. Doesn't
