Your perception is wrong. Here is an EXPERIMENT (which comes from the word EXPERIENCE) which tests the two letters for sameness: https://repl.it/repls/MassiveAcclaimedSearchRG1 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 15, 2018 4:30 pmYes.TimeSeeker wrote:Cool. In what way are they different? Is their 'individuality' the only difference you experience/perceive? e.g their different position in spacetime ?
At this moment I would then lean towards a "Yes".TimeSeeker wrote:If you were to IGNORE their individuality in respect to spacetime would you say that: B is the same as В ?
The reason the 2nd test fails is because
The left B is the Latin letter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B
The right В is the Cyrillic letter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ve_(Cyrillic)
Now, observe what just happened. I have given you a PROCEDURE to test any two letters for ‘sameness’ (The Python operator ==). Just go to the URL above copy-paste any two letters into the program, run it and it will tell you whether they are the same or not.
And so I am going to ask you: Is M the same as M?
And at this point your PERCEPTION will say 'YES', but your EXPERIENCE will say I DON’T KNOW'. And then you can go run the experiment and figure out if your perception and experience AGREE: Is M the same as M?
But let me ask you a different question now: Do you now see a difference between PERCEPTION and EXPERIENCE, when 30 minutes ago you thought they are the same thing?
Is P the same as Р ? ( You cannot rely on perception - absence of evidence is not evidence of absence)
Is F the same as Q? (perception is good enough to answer 'NO!')
This how scientific falsification works. And I think this answers the OP? The answer is 'no, but you can trust empiricism'.
