On why Idealism is superior to Physicalism and Micropsychism
I argue for a coherent Idealist metaphysics that explains reality in a more parsimonious and empirically honest manner than mainstream Physicalism and Micropsychism. This Idealist metaphysics also offers more explanatory power than both Physicalism and Micropsychism, in that it doesn't fall prey to either the hardproblem of consciousness or the combination problem, respectively. It can be summarized as follows: there is only universal consciousness. We, as well as all other living creatures, are but dissociated alters of universal consciousness, surrounded like islands by the ocean of its mentation. The inanimate universe we see around us is the extrinsic view of thoughts and emotions in universal consciousness. The living creatures we share the world with are the extrinsic views of other dissociated alters of universal consciousness. A physical world independent of consciousness is a mistaken intellectual abstraction.
