Distinguishing Monism[edit]

Because monism claims that everything is already one, it is distinct from the spiritual claim that one can become one with the universe through "realization" or dissolution of the body. While the idea that atoms flow in and out of the body deconstructs the idea of personal identity as anything other than an emergent phenomena, it is not equivalent to the monist view, which apparently claims more than an inter-connected and flowing world. -- Andrew.e (talk) 02:40, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Arguments Against Monism[edit]

Is the best argument against monism that it "Sounds circular"? Surely there must be a better argument. -- Andrew.e (talk) 02:40, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
