>>>H: I have no secret way of knowing things. D: Then, explain to me how you came to know anything?>>The very fact that we possess a mental image of the universe implies that it is possible to construct a coherent rational model of the universe via nothing more than patterns observed in a totally undefined collection of data. (Remember, the data must be undefined if our senses are undefined.) Since we have such an image, we must conclude that it is possible to construct one. In order to understand our view of the universe and discover the true nature of our presumptions, we must first comprehend the solution of this problem. The only way we can hope to accomplish that result is to solve the problem directly.>You won't tell me how you solved that problem! I admit that I have no idea how my ???subconscious??? did it (I am pretty sure it was not a conscious activity as I do not remember solving the problem). At least I can propose a possible way to do it! Please show me why my solution is not a solution to that very specific problem!
