Interesting question. For me, as a non-computationalist, the as-if gallops
right through all of the as-ises as a kind of ontological principle. There
could be no "is" without the "as-if," since the latter opens possibility. I
tend to run this through the Kant (als-ob), Husserl, Derrida, Deleuze
machine(s).
Happy 4th!
