I’ve been working on a project that I’m trying to form into a
Student Resource regarding Donald Hoffman’s book “The Case Against Reality - Why evolution hid the truth from our eyes.”
With 18 chapters of detailed review of the book and one of his papers, along with a growing list of scientific papers, 10 so far and more to come. I’m making a point of including all the relevant sources I can and,
I have spent literally hundreds of hour searching out sources and reading them and collecting them in order to save certain interested students a lot of time.
… Sort of a CliffNotes with loads of links to authoritative sources.
Working on my latest post I added a post script that got into rambling about the reasons I was so engaged in this project. I kinda like it and since we have so little going on around here, I figured why not share. Especially if it actually catches a young person’s attention.
from the post script at Jonathan Cohen: Perceptual representation, veridicality, interface theory
What am I trying to accomplished here?
Besides saying my piece while I’m still around?
I want to collect as much supporting evidence as I can and leave behind a repository to serve certain students as an intellectual landscape map for exploring the art of deception through science by rhetoric and misdirection; along with thinking about how we perceive this physical reality we are embedded within.
A collection of resources to help those so inclined to find their own way through the labyrinth of claims and competing information coming at you from every direction. We used to trust our elders to advise younger generations, but my generations have been abject failures with their me first priorities, that turned a blind eye to children, Earth and society’s future.
Today’s younger generations need to figure out your own future. For the most part, all today’s generations of old folks know is, how to consume, and how to rationalize and ignore our sins against humanity and our Earth’s life support system.
I also want to push the importance of personally recognizing and learning to appreciate the Physical Reality ~ Mindscape divide. Seems to me it does a wonderful job of helping an individual resolve that contrived dog chasing tail “body-mind problem.” At least I can’t figure out where the problem is.
