I guess I’m in a bit of a contretemps with Dr. Chopra. He keeps tw**ting at me and they’re funny as hell. I guess he can’t help himself, which makes the following especially LOLzy:
I love these. The first one implies that because I’m a determinist and an incompatibilist, he can predict my reactivity. (As if Chopra’s doesn’t have even greater and more predictable reactivity!) But determinists can also be determined to be nonreactive. The third is an ad hom, and attempts to impugn my arguments because of my determinism.
The second is a deepity, which starts off okay and then degenerates into complete obscurantism. When Chopra stubs his toe on a rock, is he stubbing it on “consciousness within consciousness”? Can he will it not to hurt? And can that will then be read into his genes?
