Whoever said I want to change your mind ?
Feel free.

Besides I never said your point has no merit : I said I like to keep an open
mind. Any way of seeing things may have validity in the appropriate
space and time.

I'm sorry you felt it that way. It' not the way I want it to be felt
though : each idea or memeset can be a potential for growth.

I don't know any of the big boys in philosophy personally, but I
sure like the subject (it's kind of mathematical/logical).
Same thing all the time. Number-crunching. I sure like Dennett.
Can you point me to some outstanding philosophers whom I can read.
i.e. interface my memeset to theirs ?

Some synthesizer-philosophers, so that I don't have to read every one of them,
I don't have the time. I know a bit about Popper, Kuhn, Kant...

But if all that created by man is "artificial" then why do you use words
at all ?

See what I mean ?
"artificial" is just a way of saying "DUALITY".

Do you view yourself as separate from the universe, Robin ?

How could you, since you live in it ?

Where's your limit ? Where's the frontier between what you call you and
what you call not you ?

Do you believe in symbiotic links and altruism ?

Do you believe in entropy increase or evolution ?
As if one excludes the other ??? Both are correct when you have the wider
picture, and my wider picture means to me that anything can have its utility.
