Ruse: "I think the machine metaphor rules out an answer to what Martin Heidegger called the 'fundamental question of metaphysics': Why is there something rather than nothing? Unlike Wittgenstein, I think it is a genuine question, but not one answerable by modern science.... I see some questions that it doesn't ask and that neither it nor any other science can answer. One such question is why there is something rather than nothing...."Au contraire! If I may: see this.
Nice paper, Steve.
Thanks, Ex -- and thanks for reading it!
