And the proof is composed of these assumptions and we assume there is a connection?
Proof is not merely composed of assumptions. Sometime facts are involved in a proof too.
And what is a fact?
A fact is something that everybody agrees with it.

Re: How do we experience time?

We do not experience time. This is explained by the physicist/philosopher Hermann Weyl in his books 'The Continuum' and 'Open World'. He distinguishes between time as we treat it in maths and physics, which he calls 'mathematical' time, which is a fiction. and time as we actually know it, which he ...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Physical systems and a physical universe don't exist as there is NOTHING to ground the physical. What your stating is a form of Naive Realism. Sloppy metaphysics at best! Are you talking to me? If yes, I have to say that my argument is the proof in favor of idealism and against materialism. Materia...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Consider a change in a system A to B. A and B cannot coexist therefore A has to vanish before B is caused. There is however nothing when A vanishes and B cannot possibly be caused by nothing. Therefore there should exist a mind which experiences A and causes B Physical systems pre date minds by ten...

Re: Ultimate Reality

The mind is not a new phenomenon. It has always existed. Mind needed for any physical change Physical change was occurring for billions of years long before minds ever existed That is not correct. Consider a change in a system, A to B. A and B cannot coexist therefore A has to vanishes before B is ...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Reality cannot exist without mind . That is mind which experiences and causes reality Reality is not mind dependent as indeed for most of known existence there were no minds Reality has always existed whereas minds by comparison are a relatively new phenomenon The mind is not a new phenomenon. It h...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

No. Mind is the only thing which is not an illusion. I already provided an argument for that which you didn't respond to it so I repeat it again: Consider a change in a physical system, A to B. A and B cannot coexist which means that A has to vanishes before B is caused. There is however nothing wh...

Re: Ontology Introduction

What do you mean with analog and discrete? I'll wait 'til you have read the article, which happens to contradict every point you made, to address anything you have to comment on then. I will explain what this question means. There are two ways of viewing reality. The analog view regards all existen...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

The physical is all there is to be conscious of. Then consciousness is physical too. No, consciousness is an ability of mind. I am conscious of being conscious. Self-awareness is the essence of consciousness. Neural activity cannot possibly give rises to a state, mind, that this state experiences i...

Re: Not Everything Is Physical

The physical is an illusion. The physical is all there is to be conscious of. If the physical is an illusion, then everything is an illusion, including your belief that the physical is an illusion. No. Mind is the only thing which is not an illusion. I already provided an argument for that which yo...

Re: Ontology Introduction

That was a long reading and I didn't have time to read it carefully so I cannot comment on it now. I can, however, answer your questions. I am open to discuss the answers if you wish. What is life? Life is nothing but minds embedded in material. What is Consciousness? An ability of mind. What is the...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Reality is all there is, the way it is, whether or not anyone is conscious of or knows the nature of that reality. There are two aspects of reality that make it knowable. The first aspect that makes reality knowable is the physical nature of reality which is all that can be directly perceived, that...
