Pansensitivity and Panmechanism/Panentropy
Pansensitivity and Panmechanism/Panentropy – Taking a cue from panpsychism, panmechanism/panentropy and pansensitivity are two new variations to represent the role of awareness in the universe. Pansensitivity specifies a primitive aspect of nature which is felt or detected in some way, but not necessarily as a ‘mental’ phenomenon or human-like experience. Panmechanism would assert the opposite primitive, that all phenomena is fundamentally unconscious. In spite of the popularity of panmechanistic views, the evidence of our own experience makes them difficult to take seriously unless some plausible link could be found to bridge the Explanatory Gap. MSR takes pansensitivity further, to Primordial Identity Pansensitivity.
Pansensitivity is the idea that all phenomena *including ontology itself* are derived from a foundation which is aesthetic and experiential. Even “is” is a linguistic shorthand for ‘the continuum between seems-like and seems-like-it-simply-is”. Pansensitivity or sense is the absolute frame of reference…’ference’ or ‘phoria’ or universal qualia. If the visual modality can be described in terms of sight-light-seen, then pansensitivity would be sense-qualia-sensed…which is just sense twisting itself into symmetric sub-senses.
