Edits to "Is This a Dream?"

The following are edits are important for those who are interested in specific philosophical terms. The majority of the book is not about terms but rather reflecting on one's own mind and its relationship with the world.


General

When I refer to idealism in this book, I am generally referring to a particular form of idealism known as objective idealism, also consistent with advaita vedanta.

"This is a position consistent with the philosophy of materialism." should be "This is a position consistent with naive realism."

Reasoning: Materialism is the view that mind is a byproduct of matter, whereas naive realism is the view that the world is as we see it.


Page 67

"The materialist mind recognizes a world that is independent of the interpreting nervous system." should be "The naive realist mind recognizes a world that is independent of the interpreting nervous system."

Reasoning: Same as above.


Page 67

"It’s important to recognize that there are degrees of materialism..." should be "It’s important to recognize that there are degrees of realism..."

Reasoning: Same as above.
