Imagine you insist that it was a six when it fell off. So it’s a six. You recover the numeral (you claim the truth is it’s a six), price goes up by three cents. You replace it the mark upside down as a nine. Is it: 1) a six incorrectly orientated as a nine? 2) simply a symbol now functioning as a nine? Probably 2

the correct answer (I think): 1) the intention of making the mark is a factual question (could have been intended as either or nothing at all) 2) what the mark can be interpreted as can be either 6, 9, (or something else) but we have social conventions around appealing to intention, 1, to settle it

if it’s personal identity theory, you want Derek Parfit’s Reasons and Persons (best summarized in McMahan’s Ethics of Killing Chapter 1), Locke’s An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Hume’s Treatise on Human Nature. Searle has a good summary here: https://youtu.be/WwipmspceOU?si=lBd0AxE3uHBQqlNb

my grandparents lived through it in china and my grandfather in particular had so many disciplinary tactics that I now learn were from that era. big emphasis on confession for example, often written.

It’s wild to me that most airlines don’t have your upcoming flight as the centermost element when you log in. Some, like Alaska, even have you “search” for your upcoming flight. Insane.

It could change your value system. If you believed that reality was a simulation created in your brain, it could cause you to give less ethical consideration to other persons (after all, they so to speak are part of you). In other cases it could cause you to value wirebrained and physical goods equally. And so on.

real means that you can make claims about its existence that other people can verify and build a shared sense of reality on top of. simulated means (to me) having an existence is representative and that’s dependent on an observer (like a story character or video game).

I don’t deny that the process of perceiving an apple contains multiple steps to end up with an image. the question is, what do you name the image: do you name it real or do you name it virtual (or a simulation)? what are the consequences of both labelings?
