the Sequences are really down on postmodernism given that they’re written by a guy who’s written, like, one non-postmodernist piece of fiction

Especially considering that the Sequences themselves contain like all the major postmodernist insights just repackaged into a STEM-comprehensible form. We are basically a bunch of (steel) postmodernists very confusedly distancing ourselves from what we think postmodernism is.

Postmodernism (In literature and Philosophy) eventually rejected objective reality, which was a critical mistake.

There is a humble power in the insight: “My perception is mediated by my prior experiences – it is possible to disagree not because I am right and they are wrong but because we are both biased in different directions.”

There is no power at all, nor humility in “Others can never tell me I’m wrong because this is how I see things.”
