Things I Know for Certain

Like A Repository of Deep and Common Sense Wisdom, this blog post will remain open. I will add to it if I become certain about more things (and I suppose I'll subtract from it if I decide I was wrong about any of these things, though I will try to keep a very high bar for them, such that I would be very surprised if I removed something).

 

-     We can be certain about some things.

-     Something is happening.

-     There is some awareness of what is happening.

-     There is some relationship between what is happening and this                   awareness of what is happening.

      - a corollary courtesy Robert Sharf: realism and idealism entail each            other because mind and world enfold each other.

-     Change has occurred.

-     Some things matter (have meaningful consequences).

-     Experiences can suck and be awesome to varying degrees.

 

Under consideration:
