Building off my earlier post about science and the territory map-relation, consider the following:
- Humans’ ability to model the physical universe is constrained by a) the limits of human observation, and b) the limits of human imagination.
- The physical universe itself is not bound by either of these constraints.
- Therefore, there may be phenomena for which humans cannot create an accurate model.
This argument, if accepted, should lead to some form of agnosticism on a wide range of topics, like religion or free will. But a lot of scientific-minded people seem fairly adamant that God and free will are impossible. Maybe they ought reconsider.
Is this a remotely new contribution to the dialogue?
