Yes, if you choose to perceive the world without divisions, then you will perceive the world without divisions. I would say that is religious in that it is a matter of choice, one isn't obliged by logic or science or anything else to perceive the world in that way. It is also like religion in that it is metaphysical; you (presumably) get the same perceptions as everyone else, you just choose to understand them in a particular way, so it makes no practical difference.Atla wrote: ↑Mon Jan 15, 2018 2:52 pm It is somewhat fuzzy so I made it clear that I'm talking about its essence, thinking without divisions, percieving the world without divisions. That doesn't mean that my stance doesn't exist. Nor was I talking about anything religious, you are just making these things up now.
We can't solve the Hard problem of consciousness using the same dualistic means that created it. You don't have to accept this, of course.
For example, I assume you can distinguish between the different keys on your keyboard, and between the keyboard and the monitor, and between the monitor and Mount Everest. If that is true, then if on some other level you 'see the world without divisions' it makes no difference.
So to say how you perceive things is a fact about you, not the world. If I say I perceive things in a different way, there is no disagreement, because we are both talking about ourselves, not the world. But as a consequence I cannot possibly understand what you mean in a non-fuzzy way, since you are describing an internal state, your 'stance', to which I have no access.
The Hard Problem of Consciousness does indeed involve distinguishing between different sorts of perceptions, between mind and matter. I'd be surprised if you can't do that, even though you may not wish to distinguish between them in some deeper sense. But that doesn't matter, because the point is that the problem assumes we do distinguish between them. So when you talk about your own stance you are not addressing the problem.
It is rather as if we were discussing the way from London to Paris. Somebody is welcome to observe that they consider spaciality to be an illusion, but it isn't strictly relevant to the topic.
