About this videoRuntime: 1 hour 3 mins
Ross Thompson concludes his discussion of ten ways to weave the world by first exploring the philosophical ideas of neutral monism and panpsychism. Panpsychism posits that everything, even basic entities, possesses both mental and physical properties. Neutral monism suggests that the fundamental substance of the world is neither mind nor matter but something more primitive. The discussion touches on historical figures like Aristotle and Spinoza, as well as modern arguments by Thomas Nagel and David Chalmers. Thompson delves into the challenges of these theories, discussing issues of plausibility, combination, and implications for art, spirituality, and theology.
