I 75
Humean world/Chalmers: is a world which is phenomenologically indistinguishable from ours, but where there is no causality, is not excluded. This is the case because facts about causation are not logically supervening on physical facts. Processes could turn out to be cosmic coincidences. Beliefs about causality are not as imposed on us like beliefs about biology (as dependent on microphysical structures).
