  You are welcome Cameron.... Where am I from originally? Ultimately, outside the order of intelligibility.... just like the problem of Evil... An explicit formulation of The Evil God Challenge: 1/ Ther...

  Questions11, I've all ready given you much "unpacking" in preceding posts....unfortunately, your perception that a necessary truth explains its own existence is incorrect (that concept is only consist...

  Could you unpack that for me a bit?

  OK Questions11... though it is the easiest option, you won't understand the final result... but, as you wish: Necessity is not determined by reality in the way the description of reality is.

  Huh?  You lose me more and more ...   Maybe it would be easier if you just posted your explanation of a being whose necessity explains their own existence.

  Questions11... You are not going to state that: X and cause are not part of the universe. This is a necessary brute fact. Are you?

  Questions11 1/  What is an X then? 2/ What is a cause then? Are you really going to simply state:  X and cause are not part of the universe. What does that mean?   Clearly it is a proposition, but it ...

  I'm still confused. In 'X caused the universe' neither 'X' nor 'caused' are part of 'universe'.

  Questions11... So are you now tabling your agreement with: 1/ The world is the totality of facts not of things. (FALSE) 2/ The world is the totality of things not of facts. (TRUE) just to be clear?

  Questions11  Causation is not a thing; you are using causation as a fact: 'X caused the universe'

  How am I saying 1 as part of the definition of universe?  I don't use 'what caused the universe' as 'part of the universe'?

  Simple Questions11... You state: 1/ 'X caused the universe'  --> total facts 2/ 'the universe is the set of all things' --> total things So, you are indeed exactly stating: 1/ The world is the totalit...

  I don't understand.  You're losing me again. How exactly does my definition of universe mean I'm saying either 1 or 2, let alone both?

  Questions11 In an earlier post you tabled: Sure, but couldn't the set of reality have a necessary (internal) reason + bunch of contingent reasons adding up to a total explanation of the whole?  The ab...

  I don't think I'm following you, but I'll continue in the hope I'll get illumination 🙂 I guess I see the universe (rather than world, which I restrict to Earth) primarily as the set of all things, apa...
