Moronium Posted June 9, 2018 Report Share Posted June 9, 2018 (edited) The only reason I assign numbers to the relevant concepts is to allow me to refer to them without assigning any meaning to them whatsoever. The object is to maintain complete ignorance and at the same consider the possible logical consequences of a finite set of beliefs. This is where I lose you. I understand that you can say that A implies B without ever specifying what either A or B is (or means). But that is completely hollow and tells you nothing. It has no meaning or relationship to anything until you specify what A and B mean. It strikes me as self-contradictory that you can (1) maintain complete ignorance and yet still meaningfully assess (2) "the possible logical consequences" of anything significant. The claim that "If A, then B; A therefore B" is analytically "true" but that is a purely a matter of form, not substance. I have a strong suspicion that what I am thinking is beyond your comprehension.... I share your suspicions in this respect.
