The Ecphorizer

Philosophy Final
Donald Altschul

Issue #55 (March 1986)

DENY SUBSTANCE: What we call matter, moving at the speed of light squared, manifests nothing but energy.

Energy can never be created, so what we call matter must be energy.

DENY FORM: All is energy, and energy is non-particulate, for without substance there can be no particles.

DENY CAUSALITY: 1. All is energy. 2. Energy can be neither created nor destroyed.

3. Nothing changes. 4. Causality has no field, and cannot function.

DENY EXISTENCE OF DEITY: 1. All is energy, which cannot be created nor destroyed. 2. There was

no Creation. 3. There was no Creator. 4. There is no change. 5. There is no Prime Mover.
