I'm told that a version of the following argument is somewhere in C.S. Lewis:
- (Premise) Our embodiment is universally seen as funny.
- (Premise, justified inductively by 1) Our embodiment is objectively funny.
- (Premise) The essence of the funny is incongruity.
- (Premise) If materialism is true, there is no incongruity in our embodiment.
- (Premise) If materialism is false, then dualism is true.
- There is incongruity in our embodiment. (2 and 3)
- Materialism is false. (4 and 6)
- Dualism is true. (5 and 7)
