Re: Mind is immortal

Note the definition of 'emergence' below. Your definition do not seem to make sense at all. Note the wiki definition below which specify; These properties or behaviors emerge only when the parts interact in a wider whole . Note the bolded phrase above. My definition is a good one. You go from one s...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

1) Causation is simply an expression given to a succession of events. Yes. It requires no knowledge, nor information. There are some sort of causation that require information. Like biological causation, your growth, mental or physical. Shit happens, and event can lead to unstructured effects. Oh y...

Re: Mind is immortal

We have to agree on the definition of 'emergent'. [we have gone tru this before]. By emergence I mean, some property which does not intrinsically exist in one state of matter appears in another state of matter. Note the definition of 'emergence' below. Your definition do not seem to make sense at a...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Free will is necessity part of any reality. What if a system fall in a situation that has to decide within two equally liked options. "Options" are only mental constructs - reality has no "options", it also makes no "decisions". No. According to the quantum theory, the particle does not have certai...

Re: Mind is immortal

Yes, I believe in the concept of "emergence" which is justified with empirical evidence [scientific] and philosophical reasoning. I stated, example, 'wetness' 'water' H2O are "emergences" and these emergence[s] can be observed, experienced and verified by anyone. You have not countered even once my...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

So you agree with me? No, because "free will" is only an idea - not real. Free will is necessity part of any reality. What if a system fall in a situation that has to decide within two equally liked options. If you are the observer of the idea and not idea then it follows that you are separate from...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

There is of course information in your DNA. Now replace knowledge by information in my argument to see what you get: 1) Causation requires information 2) Information is structured 3) Therefore any caused thing is structured 4) Anything which is structured cannot be free 5) Therefore free agent cann...

DNA is not knowledge.
The sun did not know how to be created, nor the stars, nor the nebulae.
So DNA is information?
Not really.
DNA is a sequence of chemicals.
It can be used as information.
OR it is better to say that DNA is a chemical sequence that information is codded in it.

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Free will is irreducible. The decision is due to one thing that is irreducible. The decision of something which has structure when there is a conflict of interest is also due to one component which components should be irreducible too. Matter is reducible since it eventually vanishes. We know this ...

Re: Mind is immortal

Obviously 'matter' itself do not decide freely. What decides freely is the human being with a normal human brain. Note it is always asserted by anyone "I decide freely" not my "mind" decides freely. There is no need for a mind [as you have defined] to decide freely. What is generally termed as 'min...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

Of causation needing knowledge?? Easy. Everything that happened since the dawn of time, to the moment I was born happened without my knowledge Your birth is the result of the knowledge which is structured in your DNA.
