Metaphysics

Dealing first with the foundations of physics, then more general related questions:

Propensities:
that natural objects have essential dispositional properties, and that these can be viewed as propensities which, in some form, can be characterised as the true substance of those objects.
Multiple Levels:
that there are 'multiple generative levels' of processes that give rise to each event in all natural objects, such that each stage or degree is like a ‘part,’ and exists in its own manner.
New Dualism:
that the constant and intertwined conjunction of mind and physical nature can best be seen as the relation between separate multiple levels.
Theism:
that the constant and intertwined conjunction of God and creation (of spirit, mind & nature) can best be seen as the relation between separate multiple levels.
Insights:
here I publicise the insights of others that I find uniquely valuable, in particular those ideas in the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.
