Okay, I see what you mean and yes I have to agree on that point.In a deterministic world, there is no ought, there is only is. And sorry, but you do need to esteem some things as a matter of functioning in the world. For example, a civilised person esteems words because they live by them. The question then becomes what the most appropriate thing to esteem is. And I'm suggesting to you, that from a deterministic perspective, that the original unification appears to be the obvious choice. I mean, that basically fits with the view you are endorsing, no? You go so far as to assert it and believe the truth of it, would you not also say you believe in it?
