The purpose of this work is to discuss whether a criminal solipsist should be acquitted. A solipsist is generally a one who believes that other apparently animate (and also inanimate) entities have no feeling/s or state/s of consciousness associated with them. Therefore, considering that solipsism makes sense, a solipsist tends to have no criminal mind, and thus they could be justly accused only in a conventional sense. This work discusses the definition and types of solipsism, the types of solipsistic crimes, the psychology of a judge, and the positive as well as the negative consequences of such acquittal as well as conviction. The work finally concludes in the favour of acquittal in the case of some specific solipsists committing some particular types of crime.
The Superultramodern Solipsism
The superultramodern (SUM) solipsism is a strong metaphysical semi-solipsistic position constituted of some ideas in superultramodern (SUM) science and philosophy. The first idea or strand is the NSTP (Non – Spatial Thinking Process) theoretical metaphysical semi-solipsism, the position that within the semi-idealistic framework of the NSTP theory ‘I’ and ‘the superhuman mind’ are the only material entities that exist, for the non-existence of other non-superhuman minds simply makes the universal design (i. e. the superhuman engine) simpler, as the engine needs no additional intelligence/information to create a variety of specific spatial illusions through multiple (non-superhuman) NSTPs. The second strand further sees the superhuman design and/or designer, through an astrological framework, as a personal philosophical questioning supermind, the mind which, apparently being highly reasonable, has further no good reason to create tremendous suffering through the existence of other non-superhuman minds which are simply unable to answer its profound philosophical questions. The third strand is a composite of two mutually complementary basic feelings that this miraculous thing called consciousness exists, and that it is particularly ‘I’ who is conscious, and thus other entities, at least other non-superhuman entities, might be unconscious, and that Truth would always be different from how it commonsensically appears to be.
The NSTP (Non – Spatial Thinking Process) Theory
The NSTP theory is a (philosophy of mind) semi-idealistic as well as semi-dualistic theory that the material universe, where some peculiar phenomena like quantum non-locality exist in, is exclusively a group of superhuman as well as non-superhuman thinking processes existing in the form of (non-spatial physical/material) feelings (i. e. states of consciousness). In computer terminology, it regards the (material) universe as a non-spatial computer, with hardware of (non-spatial) feelings and software of superhuman as well as non-superhuman thoughts/ideas, including those of space, which is then an illusive/virtual/merely apparent entity. The mere existence of the superhuman thoughts is responsible for the empirical (i. e. a posteriori) order in the non-superhuman ones. The theory, however, accepts the possibility of the reality of space, the space where the phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist in. The theory is constituted of 6 axioms, 1 theorem, and 3 conjectures. The key strength and novelty in the theory lies in its axiomatic/self-evident foundation, its innovative semi-idealism and semi-dualism, and, in general, its road to idealism and dualism.
