An extension $\mathsf{PAF}$ of Peano arithmetic with a new binary mereological notion of ``fusion'', and a scheme of unrestricted fusion, is introduced. It is shown that $\mathsf{PAF}$ interprets full second-order arithmetic, $Z_2$.Roughly

In the first part of this post, I considered the challenge to decision theory from what L. A. Paul calls epistemically transformative experiences. In this post, I'd like to turn to another challenge to standard decision theory that Paul considers. This is the challenge from what she calls personally transformative experiences. Unlike an epistemically transformative experience, a personally transformative experience need not teach you anything new, but it does change you in […]
