Tim Eastman Wrap-Up Session: Quantum Physics, Process Philosophy, and the Simulation Hypothesis

We wrapped up our 9-part seminar series on plasma physicist and philosopher Timothy E. Eastman’s book over the weekend. Above is the recording of the final session, which included responses by Michael Epperson and me, followed by a really great dialogue among the other participants. The simulation hypothesis came up and was challenged in light of Eastman and Epperson’s interpretation of quantum reality.

  1. Two things, for me, differentiate between the nonrelational nominalistic perspective and the process-relational perspective:

    2.

  2. Two things, for me, differentiate between the nonrelational nominalistic perspective and the process-relational perspective:
    1. The fundamental nature of time as a continuum out of which possibility and the novel emerges (and an associated possibility of a ‘Temporal Naturalism’ using a term from Lee Smolin)
    2. The reality of communication (ie. transaction) as sustaining connection and integration
