DON’T BOTHER. AT PRESENT THERE IS NO THEOLOGICAL SOPHISM THAT I CANNOT FALSIFY AND TRANSLATED INTO AN ATTEMPTED FRAUD OR THEFT.
—“You are going to have a bad time giving a materialist account for logical absolutes”—
No I am no going to have any difficulty. You are going to be horrified that I am not. 😉
Man can sense by nerves, disambiguate, categorize, perceive categories, and associate them, reinforce them by rehearsal, and recall them, hold one or combination or a prediction from a combination in his attention, recursively modify it, and in that order, because of his neurological ability to identify constant ad inconstant relations between stimuli over time. That’s all neurons do: on off, faster, slower.
- Man can discover and identify (categorize) and name (give name to) sets of constant relations (an identity, referent,).
- Man can invent patterns of testing constant-inconstant relations(relations)
Man can name those patterns of constant-inconstant relations (general rules)
Man is capable of language using ‘continuous recursive disambiguation over time.
Man can invent a grammar (rules of continuous recursive disambiguation) for any paradigm of constant relations (dimensions) he chooses. For example, counting, accounting, linear geometry, curvalinear geometry, multi-dimensional geometry. Or testimony, narrative, story, fiction, fictionalism, lie. Or physics, chemistry, biochemistry. one of the grammars he developed we call logic: the tests of constant relations in state between statements.
Man can use a grammar of any one of the logics, the most simple being first order logics, to describe the constant relations or failure of constant relations between any two or more references that he is capable of imagining, or which, by some instrumentation we can reduce to perceivable differences.
The brain is a very simple thing it turns out. It does only one thing really. focus attention on successful prediction of from patterns of stimulation.
