Scott,

I don't know what you are talking about when you referenced Medussa, but you have labelled the mumbo jumbo appropriately.

***As far as reality is concerned - whatever happened to the phrase I think therefore I am.***

Well, Rene Descartes was talking about a foundation for knowledge. A fella by the name of David Hume came along and took away that foundation and the rest is history.

***Isn't reality just a function of the perception of the passage of time.***

I'm not sure what reality is other than it is all that there is. I think that time and perception are mere functions of reality rather than the other way around.

***As time passes doesn't reality tend to branch off with respect to the perception of the observer.***

Schrodinger's cat? I don't know. Makes for good movies though.

***Or are you merely talking about 200 level philosophy courses about logic (vin diagrams and fallacies)?***

Well, there are many fallacies involved in this type of discussion. I'll say that much!

Warm regards, Harv
