"Sure, pink flying unicorns are non-existent in the universe. They don't exist. This is different than saying "non-existents exist in the universe" (e.g. non-existent pink-flying unicorns exist in the universe) - which is…"

"Our semantics of the word exist are so different that to discuss this is moot. Everything is "conceived by the mind" including "physical objects", "physical relationships",  "physical properties", etc.…"

"It only exists due to objects that have mass. The two are not mutually exclusive. If you feel it's more correct, we can say that there exists no matter that doesn't bend space-time (be missing the property that bends space-time). The point…"

"Ah, I made a mistake in that wording. I don't think there are non-existents in the universe. But we certainly can conceive of non-existents for hypothetical - that doesn't mean they exist in U. "

" There is a difference between conceivable (I can conceive of a grey unicorn as well) and such needing to exist for the other one to exist."

"Umm...yes...it is. You can call my claims "transcendental" but that is simply a statement, not an argument backed up by anything. Per your assessment, all of physics is "transcendental" (e.g. special relativity, general…"

"I'm saying that determinism is equally as reasonable as indeterminism, so both possibilities must be assessed (and that they are the only two possibilities). Free will is logically contradictory in both. ;-) I never said there…"

Trick replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion Free Will [Sam Harris]
"If you mean that they both don't exist as "objects" I agree. I'm not saying they are "the same", only that existence applies to things like "relationships" (e.g. a relationship between object X and object Y…"

"Thanks. I'll check it out to see what he has to say on this matter, and if such has been accepted and/or rebutted in the more contemporary realm. ;-)"

"My problem is that for 1) the "uselessness" of something doesn't reject it as being a predicate. I certainly would never suggest 2, in fact as I mentioned would be against such an assessment. But like I said, if every material object…"

"Again, it doesn't follow that what is being predicated doesn't exist.It's a mis-categorization  - as one arguably falls under the umbrella of the other (semantics at play here). "

Trick replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion Free Will [Sam Harris]
"I have no qualm with that assessment. ;-) Also keep in mind that I said some people even consider existence a property. To be honest I'm not sure if property appropriate (some say yes, others no), but it certainly isn't the object itself,…"

Trick replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion Free Will [Sam Harris]
"Why must there exist objects in which a property is lacking for there to exist objects in which a property exists?  In other words, if all objects were round, why must there exist objects that are not round? What does one have to do with the…"

Trick replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion Free Will [Sam Harris]
""Another syntactically defective sentence. Please explain what you mean." How about: I never said anything about "existence being a predicate in the negative". This isn't difficult as to what I'm referring to,…"
