Re: Would you use a transporter?

Do you get a bonus for collecting unrelated sentences?

"Everything is all in your mind." No. Solipsism won't get you a date on Saturday night.

"The universe and your perception of it are one and the same." No. Do the universe become invisible when you close your eyes?

"An idea is no less real than something you can physically measure." Of course it is. Ideas have no physical reality. They are just names that we use to call stuff for our convenience. Or, after Plato, do you believe that ideas exist independently from the physical realm, and independently from your mind?

"I am typing on a computer right now, the fact that it is a computer and not just a bunch of atoms is an idea." Of course it is an idea. Of course, it doesn't negate the fact that it is a bunch of atoms.
