Hi Nilesh. Interesting perspective. But there must be more I hope. Dualism and materialism in my view are both wrong. Descartes thought we are machines. He thought we are just separate parts added up. I can’t accept that.

I think Descartes is the biggest wrong in the world. He thought logic and reason is all there is. But we aren’t machines. And there’s more than just parts. There are the connections. There’s the space between the parts, filled with information. I love quantum theory for that. And chaos theory. And Gaia theory. There’s the beautiful intuition we humans possess.

The most logical explanation to me it’s the idea of one-ness. That we’re all connected. That we are systemically one. All species.

And intuition is a great way to navigate our complex world. Combined with logic and reason of course.

But in my view, it’s like Einstein said: intuition is the master, logic is the servant. Descartes created a world that worshipped the servant and forgot about the master…
