I am committed to a materialist or physicalist view of reality. I am also committed to a realist view where perception has nothing to do with the existence of objects and objective reality. Everything can be explained with this monist position.
It does not matter the exact figure of matter that is there in the reality, only that characteristically mass (and energy) is conserved. Mass will either be in constant rest or motion if not acted upon by a force. Change in momentum is related to the magnitude of force applied. Given everything is being equal … Continue reading Conservation of mass and the reality
A concrete is a thing, a physical object, (at least) a solid, liquid or gas. We will call these concrete particulars. Abstract particulars are processes (verbs), qualities (adjectives) and relations (adverbs, pronouns, determiners, prepositions and conjunctions) of concrete particulars. Abstract universals are judgments or prototypes from abstract particulars. Concrete universals are judgments from abstract universals. … Continue reading Abstract particular

We are presented with representations of things, space and time – reality. I am not arguing for representationalism. There are representations and there are things that … Continue reading There are things
There is no need for a theory of determinism if there is no presupposed universal purpose or meaning for existence. any argument that asks for any form of determinism will argue for predestination and given purpose. Life is just as rich and possible with choices (free will) to be made, including choices of what is … Continue reading Meaning and purpose without determinism
What is a mind-independent reality? It is a reality that exists without being observed. And even with it, the reality, being observed it fundamentally does not change. That is, the reality is the same whether it is observed or not. This also means that observation is independent as well. For this, we can talk about … Continue reading Mind-independent reality
There is no evidence of a tangible mind, self, spirit, consciousness, soul. The evidence of the mechanism of the sentience is only that of the mechanism. Assuming this, the binary of internal and external reality falls away. The question of other is no longer a question of anything but the object doing something called being … Continue reading The falling away of the internal and external
