“how mind emerged from matter”
…although this book is mostly a “verboraic verbose” recount of human thought/ideas history in the mentioned themes.
…it is mostly wishfull thinking, more than really getting to the point or any point for that matter.
…but what I “think” to be of interest is DEACON’s “humunculus”…!!!
Humunculus: …in recent scientific literature, “humunculus” has also come to mean the misuse of teleological assumptions: the unacknowledged gap-fillers that stand behind, outside, or within processes involving apparent teleological processes, such as many features of life and mind, and pretend to be explanations of their function.

…in the book of pure logic it would seem that I used a “homuncular assumption”, or this would seem to be ! i do not know if “Terrance” mentions me as of page 63-64…!
…this means that i put the question of “god requires the logic of self existence in an endless regressive loop” of each god or explanation requiring another one prior…!
…ACTUALLY WHAT IS IMPLIED IS THAT IN PURE LOGIC AND FORENSICS, THE STEPS BACKWARDS ARE LOST, OR NOT KNOWN, OR INVENTED, OR WORSE IMAGINED BY THE SOLE NATURALISTIC SOLE MATER ASSUMPTION OF EVERYTHING AND ANY STEP…!
…So other than this near obvious countering of the logic used in my Book of Pure Logic, most everything is old in this book of DEACON, or half truths/logic, and big words with no “complete” meaning other than the simplistic “abiogenesis” of old !
…this book is logic or not complete logic explaining of things !
…I WILL PRESENT TO YOU HIS “HOMUNCULUS” size brain in my Book 2, and the rest if I “find” anything more to “ENLIGHTEN” my Book 2.
…THE PROBLEM WITH “HUMANISTIC MATERIALISM” is that it’s logic is a low end and inferior logic, with many things being obviated, ignored, as if a APE was questioning, or reasoning logic…! NO APE WILL EVER LEARN TO KNOW ‘HOW TO TALK’…!
YOU SEE THEY FAIL TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO TALK BUT TO KNOW HOW TO WITH ‘COMPREHENSION’ [ compre-hen-sion ] !
And that mater cannot make itself past a certain “abyss”, NOR ACQUIRE INFORMATION, not learn to talk or maths or logic or science…! EVEN THOUGH INFERIOR BEINGS HAVE INFORMATION PRE-EXISTING IN THEIR GENES AND ADN…! the process required for this is not present, requiring the definition of “abyss of knowledge”…!
MODERN PHILOSOPHY clearly is in agreement with pure logic, and shows what is not known, hence the “abysses of knowledge”, and the logic I present: “mater should have, a correct true logic explanation, otherwise it is not mater, be this explanation known or un-known…”
TO RECUR only to the naturalist only mater logic of Evolution, is not in accordance with all Science of Philosophy, Cognitive Science, and logic and my use of new logic and complete, as pure logic.
YOU SEE Richard Dawkins and Terrance Deacon, are in contradiction with what they Scientifically can observe, or they simplistically ignore it willfully or not…!
They ignore that there are “THINGS” which Evolution CANNOT explain their ORIGIN, and do not have a “naturalistic explanation”, AND REQUIRE IN THEMSELVES an endless backward loop explaining themselves, and we can observe these things…! To recur to a teleological explanation of their origins, is not a “humunculus”, rather a more intelligent logic of analysis and forensics of origins…!
SO WE HAVE MERE “THINGS” that are similar to “entities or gods”…! AND THAT NEED TO BE EVERLASTING OR ETERNAL, OR HAD A MIRACULOUS BEGINNING…! This is implied in other terms by Creationists as Evolution does not explain many origins…!
 Energy, must be everlasting and does not destroy…! Hence requires a endless backward step explaining itself and its origin. Similar to a “entity or the gods”…!
 The Big Bang miniscule BLOB, requires a origin explanation in itself…!
 Mater [inorganic -organic] must be everlasting in some way shape or form…! And requires an explanation in itself of its origins…!
YOU SEE Evolution is only a “verboraic verbose” use of words, with half meanings or logic ! They obviate the obvious showing their ignorance, that Academia has not realized !
PURE LOGIC in my Book 2 will develop on the go, full complete more advanced logic.
What my Book 1 has defined as “abyss of knowledge” and “that mater should have an explanation known or un-known”, is more than advanced and superior logic…!
ABYSS OF KNOWLEDGE, completely counters the logic of the “humuncular” and the teological definition as being a fallacy ! IT could be a fallacy wrongly used !
EVOLUTION ignores many things…! And it really does not serve for any advance in Science !
WE WILL MENTION: “telos ex machina = deus exmachina = [endpoint or goal go out of the machine]”, “ex nihilo nihil fit = [nothing comes from nothing]”, auto-genesis, etc…
THIS BOOK DOES MENTION A LOT OF THINGS YOU HAVE TO STUDY FOR “YOURSELVES”…!
IF THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BETTER MINDS OF THOUGHT, LOGIC, AND USA, dagone, we are in a modern obscurantism…!
REST ASSURED in your homes of sticks and not concrete and brics !, that my BOOK 2 has way way more better logic or continued logic from BOOK 1…!
…PURE LOGIC IS THE MAXIMUM AVAILABLE LOGIC KNOWN OR UN-KNOWN AS IT MAY COME TO MY MIND, and is only beatable by better logic, but not by crappy logic !
