[quote author=“Entity”]Obscurantist is used as a derogatory term in most circles. I assumed you where saying that I was writing about something that I had no knowledge.
It is a descriptive term of someone who makes himself deliberately vague and difficult to understand. What is partly in question with such people as who are vague is precisely whether they have knowledge of what they are speaking, or whether they are just ‘shooting the BS’, so to speak.
[quote author=“Entity”]Without metaphor: There could not be a universe without there being an agent to know it exists.
We have been over and over this one. It is clearly false as we have said many times, and yet you persist in stating it with no accompanying argument.
Further, once again you contradict yourself when you say that the universe “creates” the “entity” or knowing agent. If the unverse “creates” this “entity”, it has to be around before the “entity” exists in order to do the creating. Ergo, a universe can exist without a perceiving agent. QED.
Deliberately ignoring apparently fatal counterarguments is a worse sort of obscurantism: the sort that leads one to believe that the ideas in question are simply vacuous.
[quote author=“Entity”]Why the entity exists is to give completion to the universe. The entity is the final step in the lifecycle of the universe before it starts its journey towards it’s end.
Once again, you are deliberately ignoring counterarguments that show the universe cannot have a teleology (reason or purpose). And sorry to say but “lifecycle” is a metaphor unless you are intending to smuggle in the notion that the universe is alive which is what we all think you are trying to do ... and which amounts, as I have said many times, to a form of theism.
... Just one last thing:
[quote author=“Entity”]Consequently, there may be many such universes however if the universe never develops to a point where it can create such an entity there would be no knowledge of it.
Here you allow the possibility that there can be universes with perceiving entities within them.
This directly contradicts your initial assertion that: “There could not be a universe without there being an agent to know it exists.”
For a third time, self-contradiction is a particularly pernicious form of obscurantism, as it allows one to say everything at the same time. Saying everything is precisely the same as saying nothing.
... there may be something to what Cholla says as well. Not sure. But good to have another take on it!
