Spinoza's argument, summed up crudely and imprecisely and shorn of the chop-logic and sophistry, runs thusly:

God : Universe :: Mind : Brain

Now, this brings up some odd questions, both practical and ethical.

  • Is it ethical for a concept to question the mind in which it's hosted?
  • What's the status of the concepts in our own minds?
  • Has this analogy been stretched to breaking point yet?
  • Is Satan a pink elephant?
