PHPH = Psychophysical harmony: States of consciousness are related to each other, and to physical states, in strikingly harmonious ways—ways that seem extremely lucky, or involve many striking apparent coincidences. E.g., being pricked is correlated with feeling pain and not pleasure (though it might have been), resulting in avoiding being pricked (not pricking oneself). Seeing a snake is correlated with believing there is a snake and not a cat (though it might have been), resulting in not petting it.|
TT = Theism, or similar views) >> Pr(PH|
NN = Naturalism, or similar views).
ⓘIf naturalism is true, there is no reason to think PH is very likely, since the “overwhelming majority of sets of conceivable psychophysical laws would have produced disharmony,” whereas if theism is true, PH is not at all unlikely, since “God has reason to design the psychophysical laws in order to bring about the values realized by psychophysical harmony,” such as allowing “there to be beings who not only have phenomenal states, but have phenomenal states which can play normatively appropriate roles, who possess meaningful agency, who can respond rationally to sensory evidence, who can behave rationally on the basis of their desires, and who can have reasonably reliable intuitions about their phenomenal states.”
