Subjectivity is impossible to understand, so don't bother trying to understand it.
The best things anyone ever said about subjectivity, consciousness, the universe, god, or really, basically anything else that you can think of, were ALL said by one man 500 years ago. His name was Leibniz. He was SOOOOO SMART!!! He invented calculus and everything. You know what we could do without calculus? Nothing, that's what. But the MOST IMPORTANT contribution he made was his earth-shattering discovery that we are all MONADS -- simple and indivisible substances that have both consciousness and extension as attributes. You see, monads are necessary to solve the mind-body problem, because since mind and body are two such different essences, there is really no other way to conceive of how they might interact other than assuming that there is just some kind of parallelism of operation between the two. After all, things are extended in space, everyone knows that, right? And minds are not extended anywhere, right? Everyone knows that too! So how the heck do the two essences seem to correlate? Well, GOD of course!! And if you don't believe that, well, you're going to hell. Even if you do believe that, you might go to hell anyway, if you are a jew or a liberal. Gee, I sure do love Leibniz. Remember, Leibniz, Monads, Monism, and Jews and liberals are bad. Oh, and God is great and he exists and everything. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
