Promiscuous Teleologists

We're all promiscuous teleologists, it appears, but scientists less than others fortunately.  (And I love Epiphenom, BTW.)

You're right! I consider Tarskian metalanguage sentences non-standard teleological entropic Searlean performative declarations of natural law. Epiphenominal consciousness is the function of the universe.

This is why I think Daniel Dennett's account of the "design stance" is somewhat under-appreciated. Try to explain to a kid why flowers are colorful without using any teleological language. It can be done, but it really takes some conscious effort (at least it did for me).

(By the way, thanks to Westley for "non-standard teleological entropic Searlean performative declarations of natural law".)
