Philosophy of Action
ACTS, DEFINED: SIMULATED ACTS2
Abstract: The unfolding of the thesis of this study is to provide the essential
notions about action. Query such as, “What keeps us acting the way we do and
should is, to say the least, linked with what we are, or how we were already
been accustomed to because of matters of consequences?”, will be dealt with
indirectly in three parts. First, a discussion of propriogenetic series 3 embedded
in the species‟ gene pool4; anon, its relation to the individual‟s physical world.
Second, postulates about isomorphic regressive models of real-world
environment and proximate virtual worlds, respectively. Third and lastly, by
finding out the relative relational interwining import of „in-out‟ events in
producing complex acts.
A. Propriogenetically-determined sequences as definable acts5
„These propriogenetic series are parts of the whole entanglement of
species-defined acts for each individual‟s life.‟
Concerning queries of kaleidoscopic vista, that is, starting from conception, what we are
physically, mentally, emotionally, and the like,6 for varied reasons, were parts of the built-in
genetic programming of our system.
Genetically and to speak less of the details, we are in many ways Crick-Watsonian
double-helical multicellular organisms. From a fertilized egg conceived as normal human
species, we are cocksure that under the required favorable genetic mechanism, our steady and
potential development will be full-blown. Typically, in developmental genetics, we would then
have no means to alter such process. Having this built-in genetic structural composition that
This article about the philosophy of simulated action excludes very specific key issues such as the acquisition of valid source
information about the agent or referent, selection of key characteristics and behaviours, the use of simplifying approximations and
assumptions within the simulation, and fidelity and validity of the simulation outcomes and feedbacks.
