Subjectivity is impossible to understand, so don't bother trying to
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.
