I agree with that, Steven. We forget how many bad paths Einstein went down before he relied on a friend for key input when working on General Relativity. It's all in his notebooks from the time. John Professor John Collier Philosophy, University of KwaZulu-Natal Durban 4041 South

...To suggest such a thing seems no more outrageous than Copernicus proposing that our planet is not the center of things or Newton suggesting that the observations made before him suggest a universal previously unconsidered. Of course, I am well aware of the reluctance to make such associations,

Steven – I haven't been following this discussion until now. I would just like to say that I love your 'ridiculously ambitious' attitude. (I have characterized my own efforts as 'ridiculously ambitious'.) The notion that 'philosophers will be put off' by such bold hypotheses just tells us

I will take the strong emotion to be both positive and competitive. It's a first draft cover piece and you are right to correct me concerning Frege's Sense and Reference, thank you. The mechanics of sense simply refers to the mechanism characterizing sense in biophysics, I assume that there

I would agree with the general thrust of the comments that more specificity is needed early. The current text appears to be motivated by a question that it unfolds. I think that is a fine rhetorical device, however, it needs to unroll in a few sentences and then hit us with an answer very

Steven, could you explain what you mean by sense in your post below (the sense for which you trust there is a mechanical explanation)? In your blurb, you seem to use the word in at least 3 different meanings. Talking about Aetherometry, I think you might find the Correas' book Nanometric

Dear Malgosia, By sense I refer to the variety of differentiations of experience, be it the text book classifications, pain, electroception, or thought. I have only one meaning, one behavior, in mind. A more extensive summary of the work can be found at http://iase.info. If you are interested

I am sorry, but this inflated piece of vacuous hype would forever discourage me from having anything to do with the book. The only half-way informative tidbit is that the book concerns a logic informed by recent advances in biophysics. By the way, On Sense and Reference is not a book but a
