Well that's the thing joey, thoughts ARE things, and they are nonphysical. What Wittgenstein said sounds like a PMR limited version of what Tom says, "your belief systems limit your reality to a sub-set of the solution space that does not contain the answer", and joey, I am looking for the answer to changing many social injustices too, so in the big picture we are on the same team.
Have you ever read "Wittgenstein's Poker", it's a great book about a great time in our history. My thoughts on Chomsky are actually a belief of mine, at least I am aware that it is a belief and not something I know. I had meant to read the entire book I formed this belief from reading a section of, but something else took my attention. It's on my "to do" list, as is change the world, like you.
Like I said before my mind doesn't think in the way that would be able to look at your model, it isn't a theory of everything if it doesn't include everything it is a model which is fine, and gain some understanding I did not have before, but that isn't a problem with your model or my neural system, it's that Tom's TOE really is one that my neural system can make almost perfect sense out of because it is whole, it is foundational, fundamental, and I really have been looking for a foundation to build on that was real all of my lives, this is it so far.
Keep up the good fight, it really is a small world and we are working on helping create a better reality for those that are not able to do so all on their own, because it is also a big world out there. The right, or is it left, type of mind will be able to see more in your model than I. The way I think is not a disability unless the social norms are built around some other way of thinking now, and they are. That is now one of my interests, my fights if you will, I have several as that is how I work. We'll talk later I hope, you never know how we are connected besides just here at MBT, or how we may be connected in the future, and stuff. :)
No, I haven't read "Wittgenstein's Poker". I knew that coming in, that we were more or less on the same team. But I am young and a big part of youth, of mine at least, is having the enthusiasm to be proactive, to participate in the political, economic, legal, and academic spheres. This is why I dislike excessive theorizing...in doing so, we ourselves become covert conservatives, ignorant of and/or indifferent to the suffering of millions. And I hate that. My whole family went through a genocide, many died, and I was brought up into a fragmented, isolated "third" world. And I imagine how often this has happened, is happening now, to how many little boys and girls, mothers and fathers, monks and saints, and all I can think about is how I'm not doing enough to change the social conditions they face evey damn day. So yes, we can talk all we want, but I for my part, like you I suppose, am doing
something about it.
