The old testament often calls things evil that the neighbors of isreal did. like braiding hair or having markings on your skin. a lot of the old testament is coded language that ancient jews would have understood immediately.

I wouldn't call it code but cultural idioms, totally. Also they would use certain literary devices that Jews would recognize that we don't immediately recognize today without study.

By definition the multiverse contains universes, not the other way 'round. Yes, it would have to be called something completely different, like "meta-universes" as you said if a universe contained universes.

Just because you imagine it does not mean it exists outside your imagination, that's retarded. It should not at all be hard to realize that your imagination of a universe can exist completely distinctly from the possibility of it existing AND from it actually existing which are different things provided there is any actual randomness or probability in any level of physics (which is debatable, but so far fits our current understanding at least).

I think that is an arbitrary definition that needs justifying, you can't just say it is definition and leave it at that. What is stopping the multiverse from existing in one set of universes, but the multiverse does not exist in one other universe that is not part of the first set, and thus a set in itself? It seems to be an arbitrary stopping point to me. But you can get away from this by trying to argue that the multiverse is a logical necessity.

And you've still missed the Lewisian point. For counterfactuals and hypotheticals to actually hold reference, there has to be something that is being referenced. Platonic realists will say that propositions are something that literally exist. Lewis (a nominalist) disagrees. He still, however, needs counterfactuals to have reference. Therefore, every hypothetical situation must not only be imagination, but real as well to make sure language still has reference. Thus, for Lewis, there are an infinite number of possible worlds and each actually exists by Lewis' account.

Depends what you're referring to. If you're referring to the multiverse as in some universe making machine is creating universe after universe, and our universe just happens to be the one that works, that is not the multiverse we are talking about.

The multiverse theories we are talking about refer instead to possible worlds, deals in physical v. logical supervenience, and more complexly deals with things like if propositions actually exist.

You do not seem to understand the concept of a multiverse. A universe is a single unit hence the uni- meaning one, a multiverse contains multiple of these single units, Multi- meaning many.
#150 - muffinssnuffims (08/02/2015) [-]
Simple:

Universes do not contain the multiverse, the multiverse contains universes.

Anything a universe contains is (by semantics if nothing else, although likely by the laws of physics and dimensions as well) - NOT a multiverse.

I don't think this solves the problem. It is by logical supervenience, not physical supervenience. Meaning, I can imagine a universe where there the laws of physics are different or where there are 8 dimensions. Those universes, by a Lewisian account, must exist. And I think quantum mechanics makes it so we have to insist the possibility of those universes, anyway.

Furthermore, the multiverse being in a universe and that universe having a multiverse is a both/and. Unless the multiverse is a logical necessity (a logical necessity would be like 2+2=4, or proofs like "I think therefore I am") the multiverse must be contained as a trait or trope of that universe. We would now, instead, be talking about meta-universes instead of just universes now. Some people will be forced into asserting that multiverse theory is a logical necessity (see again, David Lewis), but platonic realists won't.

Just a little update, I don't know if you're interested.
I got a 10 (the scale goes -3 You only get -3 if you don't show up. , 00, 02, 4, 7, 10, 12) It's a fucked up scale, but it works.
And I had expected a 7, so I think its nice.

It's a danish poem by Kaj Munk called "Den blå anemone" or 'The blue anemone'
It's about a priest that lived under the 2 world war. I am pretty sure I have the somewhat meaning of it, but I don't think I'll get the best grade (12 in Denmark) because of high expectations and shit like that.
