In particular, I think under this formulation knowledge and onotology largely refer to the same thing. Which is part of the reason I think this formulation is mistaken. Separately, I think ‘reality’ has too many moving parts to be useful for the role it’s being used for here.
Maybe, although I think there is a not very clear distinction I’m trying to make between knowledge and ontological knowledge, though maybe it’s not coming across, although if it is and you have some particular argument for why, say, there isn’t or can’t be such a meaningful distinction, I’d be interested to hear it.
As for my model of reality having too many moving parts, you’re right, I’m not totally unconfused about everything yet, and it’s the place the remaining confusion lives.
