Reality possesses One Reality

Because reality is One, it possesses One reality. This applies to both syntax and content. And because reality is syndiffeonic, there exist differences within it.

What does content mean here..... satisfaction, components, subject matter, or something else. If you are going to compose a well formed sentence containing the word 'syntax' then I think it incumbent on you to arrange your words properly, eliminate any unclear meaning.

There's that, plus no one can be sure if you want us to agree, disagree or remain indifferently mute with whatever it is you wrote.

I want us to see eye to eye here. Content is anything made of energy and matter, even mind. When there are differences, reality collapses from an infinite shape of possibilities to one possibility. I believe this is the fundamental behavior of the Quantum world.

Your OP seems to assume a certain monism---that reality is all one thing. But how do we know that? Maybe it is a plurality--a mix of separate realities all interacting and generating higher realities in the process. Mind and matter seem to be two separate realites. But they also mingle and react in such a way as to create a third higher reality we experience as Being. Are there other kinds of being? What of potential being? What of virtual being? Do these diametric domains synthesize into yet other transcendental domains of being? The essence of Being is self-transcendence. Kant showed us this. We have yet as a species to realize it.

Sounds like collapse of the wave function. Believe me Ostro, until someone can prove to me otherwise I'll continue to think the mind and matter are inextricably linked. That would include the quantum world as they say.

It's a dual reality we live in. With dual self-containment. Matter contains mind while mind contains matter. As well as spacetime.

If at any time reality is a multitude of possibilities then that's what it is. If it's only one then that's what it is. If there's infinite possibilities then there's no sense worrying about it. 

I look at what your saying as a product of an overactive imagination. Believe me I think that's a great thing to have. What you're saying reminds me of those Russian matryoshka dolls somewhat. 

Analogy time.....Anyways let's say I have a container(reality) of air(mind). I want to put another container equal to the first into the original container. Well I can't so I make it smaller plus I displace some air. If I continue this trend then eventually I get to where I can't fit another container in there and all my air is pretty much gone. 

So the moral of this dorky little analogical story is this: With every reality you put into your mind, the less mind you will have left. 

My advice, it's not worth worrying less you go crazy thinking about it. There's not enough words in the English language that can explain a truly imaginative thought. I realize you know what you're trying to say but from this listener's POV it loses something in the translation.

I think that it's plausible to say that there are different kind's of reality. Physical objects exist in one way. The laws of physics exist in another way. Fictional characters like Sherlock Holmes exist in yet another way. There are ideas and word meanings. Numbers and the abstract structures of mathematics seem to have some kind of objective existence. We might need to have some account of unrealized possibilities. The past, present and future seem to have different kinds of reality.

If it is to have any claim to completeness, metaphysics will have to provide an account of all of those.

I am absolutely certain of there being only One reality and no more. If it were not so any absurd thing could occur. There are levels of reality involving the transcendence of matter to Being however.

I maintain my earlier statement about self-containment. Reason being is that reality logically causes reality and no other. Notice I said logically as reality conforms to logic and also gives error the way logic would. Its size must take on a measurable volume. Otherwise reality would not be discrete.

Quote:Its size must take on a measurable volume.

Not caring what this quote is about because it's just an example of a simple sentence that speaks volumes...When I see words like must, it tells me someone has tried to logic something. To the thinker/originator it sounds like the only attainable result. But we all know nature or reality if you wish, doesn't always meet the expectation. IOW you cannot know for sure whether you've made the right conclusion. So how close would such a notion be to now becoming a belief? It's not fact unless proven so in this case where nothing has been proven, the idea falls into the belief category, no matter how logical you think you are. THere's that plus the fact the reader might not have any idea of what you're basing your logic on. So if it's been extrapolated from another unproven belief then what's the use?
