For David Chalmers, he believes that we should not be alarmed or afraid of a drastic change in what we think of as reality; granted, this altered reality presents itself plausible in theory.
Does the brain experience reality, or is the experience of the scientist somehow more real? Ontology studies the things, while metaphysics studies the rules. Key question of Ontology: Does this exist? Therefore, we can find examples of epistemological questions from the philosophers of antiquity. One such thinker and writer was G. It studies the entities that exist within the computer science field and how they relate to each other. For instance, the population of Canada is a fact. Metaphysics is not subjective to the world, but to one's own practical experience of perception that cannot be theorized without exception. Durkheim would be something of a positive ontologist, because he did not always recognize that his theory was only a theory--a model based on apparent 'facts'.
It means the beeing itself for example of matter and not how matter appears to human. Recently there have been many researches on automated and intelligent grading. He wants it to be recursive, so that in our production … of knowledge we do not delude ourselves into thinking that the means of production is independent of what is produced.
