Stereo vision as evidence of platonism

2013-10-23 Thread Roger Clough
Stereo vision as evidence of platonism Stereo vision, in which nerve signals from both eyes are integrated into a single 3D vision, is only possible if there is a single perceiver (the One) which views this 3D effect. Thus, stereo vision is evidence of platonism. Materialism has no provision for

A Platonic, singularity theory of mind. Current philosophies of mind debate whether mind and body are a dualism (mind and body) or a monism (mindbody). But these do not address the nature of mind itself. As the pragmatics of language demonstrate, Mind (first person singular) must be a

A Platonic, singularity theory of space Plato envisioned the One, a singularity from which the pluralistic world emerged(s). Big Bang theories of Creation point back to such a singularity from which space emerged, and black hole or white hole theories also point to singularities possibly

The Leibniz difference: Me doesn't have an I, because me is a materialist.

The Leibniz difference: Me doesn't have an I, because me is a materialist. An I is first person singular, me is third person singular. I is a subject, me is an object. I is part of mind, me is part of brain. Opposite. Big difference. It doesn't take a genius to see the difference, but
