Philosophy Wire: Material. Swarms. Bees.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-01-20]: A study announced that scientists have succeeded in demonstrating control over the interactions occurring among microscopic spheres, which cause them to self-propel into swarms, chains, and clusters. [1] We talk for ourselves as if we are matter. We talk about matter as if it had conscious and free will. Look at the swarm of bees coming towards you. Are you afraid they will sting you? Free will and consciousness are real and we experience them every day. And there is no bigger proof for them than the stupidity of humans these days. There is no matter. There are no swarms. Ah! They stung me!
