Shaviro on Molnar, and Quantum Innerness

Steven Shaviro's new post on this metaphysician looks very interesting. I'll have to see what I think when this migraine isn't fuzzing my head so much. But in brief, I think there's a way for quantum scale objects such as photons to have “innerness,” which was something of a question here. But in brief, the stochastic (truly stochastic) quality of quantum objects—they can for instance become entangled but it can't be certain exactly how (see Zeilinger's new book)—guarantees that they have an innerness, perhaps. See Graham's post on Molnar too.

Shaviro rather modestly calls himself not a philosopher.
