THE DANCE BETWEEN CHAOS AND ORDER -6

CHAPTER 6, PHILOSOPHY IS LIKE A BOOK

by

Harvey Thorstad

For ages and ages
the wise and not so wise
have pondered and wondered
about the basic nature of the world they perceive.
Materialists, mentalists, psychophysical parallelists, and psychophysical
interactionists see an open book
very differently.

The materialists open the book
and see everything written
as if caste in stone by the rules of cause an effect.
There is no
free will, chaos, or anything unbound by the laws of causality.
Free will, ethics, morality, responsibility, and related concepts have no meaning.

The mentalists open the book
and see blank pages to be written by them,
for nothing is caste in stone.
The material world is but a creation
of the mental force.
Free will, ethics, morality, responsibility, and related concepts reign supreme.

Those of the psychophysical parallelism persuasion
open the book
and see a chapter written and caste immutably in stone,
but they also see a second chapter of blank pages to be written by them.
Only in the second chapter do free will, ethics, morality, and related concepts have meaning.

Those of the psychophysical interactionalism persuasion
open the book and see a rough draft to be edited,
or an outline of a book to be written.
The physical world of the materialists governed by the rules of causality exists,
but can be molded, formed, rewritten, and negated by the mental force of chaos.
Free will, ethics, morality, responsibility, and related concepts have real power,
but are limited by the physical rules of causality.

This interaction
between the physical powers of order
and the mental powers of chaos
create the dance of order and chaos
about which this story is written.
