MCS theory of cognition and philosophy
How is the MCS theory of cognition coherent with the views of classical philosophers ? Figures show here that reality cannot be known in any proportion measurably higher than zero ! Indeed we are bound to be very much subjectively oriented, taking decisions for adequate actions and survival on the basis of minimal cognitive levels.
On the contratry of Plato, who suggests that we perceive imperfect views of some perfect concepts, which are claimed to exist beyond us, Kant proposes that we perceive reality only through some predefined categories. Here MCS would rather support Kant.
Even though this is against commonsense, MCS strongly supports Hegel, who drastically suggests that our (conscious, explicit) world is a pure creation of human brains rather than an object per se.
In fact it is probably useful to imagine two parallel worlds, one which is real but infinitely complex and essentially unknown, and another one which is the model built-up by our human cultures and encyclopedias, as well as our own personal experience, a world that is well in our cognitive scope, helps living, yet remains imaginary, and has very little overlap with the former one, the real world.
