"Experiential atoms" are sort of " just words" - like "atoms" was just
a word to the Atomists of ancient Greece. And then a lot of people
ignored them. Hopefully things will go better in this round of history.
Democritus didn't just define atoms as "the uncuttable". He built a
theory on it. Atoms had hook-and-loop interactions that explained the
coherence and interaction of bodies. They flowed downward explaining
gravity. They swerved explaining interactions. I don't see any
explantory or predictive power in experiential atoms. It's easy to see
how anesthetics may work by blocking ion channels in neurons. No
experiential atoms need be considered.
