When I was 4 years old, my dad decided that it was time for my intro to philosophy. So he told me, "Did you know that I get all my ideas at the idea store?". This didn't sit well with me and I kept insisting "No you don't!". For the next two years, many car rides were spent talking about the idea store. It baffled my little mind but I kept trying to reason with him the best I could. At age 6 I found the solution. "You can't see and touch ideas. You can only buy things you can see and touch. Ideas are different". My dad was ecstatic. He had just taught his daughter the basics of metaphysics. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/genevieve-sugrue/support
