Hi Brent >> Mainly because it makes "I" ambiguous. One answer would be the probability >> of me being in Moscow is zero and the probability of me being in Washington >> is zero, because I am going to be destroyed.

Another answer would be the probability of me being in Moscow is one and the probability of me being in Washington is one, because there are going to be two of me. Yeah, I can see those sets of probabilities too. And it occurs to me that there is no 1-p indeterminacy in either 0 or 1. >>What's "illicit" is the implication forced by language that "I" and "me" are >>necessarily singular. If you were the Borg, you would answer the probability >>that we will be in Moscow is one and the probability we will be in Washington >>is one. Fine, but again, where is the 1-p indeterminacy in a probability of 1? In anycase, if I assume comp and the survivability of 'I' in comp, then I feel I ought to be committed to the version where the probability is 1 because there are two of me. In effect that has been the thrust of my complaint. All the best Date: Fri, 27 Sep 2013 13:47:54 +1200 Subject: Re: What gives philosophers a bad name?

Surely not, because from a first person perspective one just goes to sleep and wakes up again (or experiences dreams). "No cul de sac" implies there's no way to stop consciousness permanently. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
