let me see if I can summarize the discourse to this point. I claimed that "there is experience and there is experiencing; but, no way to explain that fact without inferring that there is an experiencer" and alluded to the failure your earlier argument to the contrary. you challenged my evaluation (that your argument failed miserably). I pointed out that you admitted that there is experiencing an afterimage; and, that you were unable to explain how it was possible that there is experiencing an afterimage while there is nothing experiencing an afterimage.
Your demand for explanation fails because on this issue we are at the limit to explanation, as indicated earlier.
your reply is "It will simply not do to argue that an experienceR exists by virtue of the claim that it experienceS (or "has") experience". your response is barely cogent; and, does nothing to carry your burden:
My response consisted of a reasoned argument for which you have consistently failed to provide a refutation. Foot stamping carries no weight.
unless you can show that there is experience that is unexperienced by anything at all, experience implies an experiencer.
I can't even show that there is experience, let alone qualify that experience, and neither can you. Your conclusion is therefore in error. ========================================== Need Something? Check here: http://ludwig.squarespace.com/wittrslinks/
