So I have completed week 1's work, the study planner for week 1 is done.
Happy days, I think!
So I have looked at the ship of Theseus and john Locke's ideas about personal identity.
So Locke separate's the self, from the physical existence of a 'me', thats not relevant, to the idea that I am my self.
It is the continuity of memory and the persistence of self-consciousness that make me a self.
Okay I can get with that, no problem, week one done. Feel smug, happy its done, I can do this, no worries.
I clicked the link to an article from the additional reading list:
Mind blown------ they were words, but I could not follow them,
temporal identity, empirical duality of purpose, four dimension definition of spatial existence.
There are even formula's !!!!
if a is to b as x is to y, across a continuum of t1 to t2, then t1a is the same as t2b if X(t1a) is spatially separate to Y(t2b).
MIND BLOWN !
This years blog posts might turn into a whinging set of 'I do not understand' entries.
Or I might get an handle on it all, after all my self now (OMFG1) might be temporally identical to my self in 9 months time (OMFG2). So (OMFG1)=(OMFG2) if I add the empirical factor of time (t). OMFG1 x (t) = (omfg2) / T.
This might be a very long nine months......
