Dialog:

  • Attack
    • Port - Isn't it ridiculous to suggest that possible worlds exist?
  • Counterattack - returns fire with another question.
    • Starboard - People believe sets of numbers exist without too much trouble, why not sets of possibilities?
  • Counterattack – or you could call it a “counter-counterattack”
    • Port - But, don't numbers "exist" in a different sense than you or I do?
  • Hit - The Clarification Question, to respond one often must sacrifice the offensive.
    • Starboard - Are you arguing that numbers require the mind in order to exist?
  • Note: Resorting to a vacuous counterattack like "what do you think?" is equivalent to surrender.
  • No matter how sassy you are able to make it sound.

    Just in case you were wondering, the view that possible worlds exist, in the same way that this world exists, is called “actualism.”
