Private Property

I have to say, I quite like the idea of private properties--by which I
mean, unique qualitative essences which are sometimes called
haeceities. Most metaphysicians tend to be down on them for some
reason--that is they might accept that there are primitive thisnesses,
but not accept that they get their thisness by being unique qualitative
essences. For me though, the only way one gets a thisness is by having
a unique qualitative essence, i.e. to instantiate some universal
property, which, as it happens nothing but you can instantiate. I call
mine "Fred". Since it's not an essential aspect of Fred that it be
instantiated only in me, but merely a contingent fact, this leads me to
hypothesis about my favorite possible worlds: one where all of space
and time is filled with nothing but Fred-instantiations. No, just
kidding, I'm not really such an ego-maniac. My favorite possible world
actually is more along the lines of Herman Hesse's glass bead game, but
with less eastern nonsense.

Hi Nat,

Could you just confirm for me whether this blog is a parody or not? I've been wondering for a while. I realize this question will sound very rude if the blog is earnest, and very stupid if it is not...

Regards.

Hi Anonymous,

It's not rude to ask whether this a parody or not, even though it's not. The truth is I'm trying to take ideas and thoughts to their natural limits, and sometimes things might seem like it's a parody in these cases. And I do have a sense of humor--I mean I watch The Simpsons and used to like SNL, so I can see how for instance, this blog entry might seem a bit funny, and indeed that's not entirely unintentional. But, I'm trying seriously, if lightheartedly to express my thoughts about this strange and wonderful field of philosophy.

Sincerely,

Nat

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
