Not only when talking about purpose. Most of the concepts we use are 1p, so it is supposed that they are meaningless when used in the description of a multiverse . Precisely because the multiverse is a design with the explicit goal of eliminate purpose as an axiom.
But at the end, as I mentioned, this goal is not possible, because we can not avoid the infinite regression in the search for causes, and causality is 1p indeed. Se inadvertently, when we talk about what exist and what do not exist in a multiverse, we turn into looking at an implicit 1p designer of the multiverse At the end we can not think outside 1p. Scientific inquiry is comunicable 1p. Because the world of the mind -where we live- is and ever will be teleological. > >> >> On 2/5/2013 6:23 AM, Russell Standish wrote: >> >>> Only in the same sense that evolution is teleological, ie not really. >>> >>> Cheers >>> >>> On Tue, Feb 05, 2013 at 06:59:01PM +1100, Kim Jones wrote: >>> >>>> So does this explain the PURPOSE of the universe or merely a dominant >>>> FUNCTION?
