Some things you imagine can be used in science, others don't. What about itLondoner wrote: ↑Sun Jan 07, 2018 12:08 pmIf you are aware that your dreams and experience when you are awake are 'very different' then you do know what I mean.
So, if all experiences are 'of the same nature', why would some be 'very different'?
If all our experiences are all of the same nature, than if I imagine something why can't I include it as a scientific observation?Me: And if you were doing a bit of scientific research, you would hesitate to include results you had imagined?
What do you mean?
Whereas if we do discriminate, then we are discriminating between the world described by science and the world of imagination. But then we would have introduced a dualism, which you don't like.
I think your opposition to dualism has become an acceptance that things are 'very different' , but not so different as to be actually different!
Science has methods, standards, but the fact that science has these does not split reality into two, why do you think it does.
Do you understand what backwards reasoning is?
Plus your so-called world of "imagination" is also part of science since 100 years, since observer-independent reality was refuted
When does "different" become "different enough" for you that it suddenly makes a magic jump and becomes another substance?
You don't understand anything
Your questions make no sense
What are you talking about
