Epistemo(il)logical arguments: Experience & Reason, Truth, Language, Immaterialism, Constructs, and Common knowledge

That thumbnail. Please watch out for the volume on your headphones – there is some loud static when I move the camera around.

This video holds my current views on knowledge ~ where it is, what it is, how we have it. I want to put some thoughts and syllogisms down here as well, as once I was finished recording I realized that not everything had been included despite my best efforts.

  • Thoughts:
    • We can prove that we have knowledge.
      • Knowledge is necessary to predict outcomes
      • We can predict outcomes
      • Therefore, we have knowledge
    • Knowledge is a set of assumptions, beliefs and understandings.
  • Syllogisms:
    • The experience + reason = knowledge equation
      • Experience is inseparable from senses
      • Consciousness requires senses
      • Reason requires consciousness
      • Knowledge requires reason
      • Therefore, knowledge requires experience
    • Truth in matter
      • Action must be driven by something
      • Knowledge only drives conscious action
      • Therefore, something that is not knowledge drives unconscious action
        • Lets call it Truth!
        • Unconscious action: a heart beating, a rock being, etc etc
