Panpsychism Is Crazy, But It’s Also Most Probably True - Aeon

Keep it simple is Philip Goff's argument for panpsychism. Other theories, in his opinion, are unnecessarily complex, opening themselves up to fatal flaws. On the obverse if everything is conscious then inanimate matter is conscious, therefore materialism is ascendant because of a wild, and counter-intuitive, materialist hypothesis. Don't be dismissive since folks like Philip are the ones who will listen rather than shout down dissenting theories. One could make an agreeable argument for belief in the Paranormal In An Age Of Science. Yesterday's supernatural is tomorrow's science, writes Dustin Ruth, but the future may surprise us by validating belief in forteana. (CS)
