The interaction problem

How does an armadillo interact with modus tollens, or a cornfield interact with a paint? Still, there are arguments that turn on affirming there are armadillos, and paintings inspired by cornfields. Causality is not interaction.

And what if we say “there are causal actions here, but they are just relatively complicated”. But are we then committed to saying there is no such thing as a category mistake?

All this is like a dispute between whether an effect arises from the real cause or the true cause. The existent and cognitive fields aren’t divided like that.
