Archives of the Impossible II
The talk I’ll be giving at this May’s Archives of the Impossible conference is titled “The Impossible Efficacy of Intention?” Amidst all the variety and extraordinary strangeness of “impossible” phenomena, there is at least one pattern that continually recurs: the apparent ability of our thoughts, emotions, and intentions to manifest in the external world without a need for our awareness of the means by which this occurs. I’ll suggest conceptualizing this phenomenon as a form of holistic causation, operating by way of a nonlocal organizing principle. I’ll show how it’s compatible with the evidence of the sciences and yet challenges some of the unjustified assumptions that dominate the current interpretation of that evidence.

My talk centered on the new metaphysical paradigm I think we need, not just to understand anomalous experience but also to solve puzzles in mainstream metaphysics: a meaning-based nonlocal organizing principle.
