Re: An argument against materialism

*doubt That is correct. It's on the "spiritual" side where the contingencies; salience, perspective, and priority, must be accounted for. It's a division between layers of complexity in the metaphors we use to describe material reality. A cluster of water molecules can be described as wet in a way ...
