Subject: [FOM] naive continuum metaphysics
Following up on Steven's question regarding the continuum as a non-set:
I was wondering if anyone on the list has seen mathematical or philosophical
work on the continuum being a fundamental unity? To consider the continuum
pointless entity where the reals are in some sense indiscernable from one
another was proposed to me by a friend. This person regards the CH as a
fundamentally meaningless question and claims that we make the mistake of
thinking of the continuum as composed of objects (points or reals) when it
really a single, "solid" entity. Has anyone seen any writing on this or
written something on this themselves?
