Summa Scientifica, or a Comprehensive Inquiry into Forms, and in particular the Form of all Existing Forms, termed variously God or Man.

It never ends. Or does it?

On the Reason for Inquiry

With any endeavour into science and knowledge, the author must state the reasons he has chosen to discuss and study the subject matter which he brings to the fore. The question this short study shall try to answer is such: In a complex world composed of simple elements, may we endeavour to a perfect and complete understanding of the world in its most abstract and general form. The answer to such a question, or even the attempt to spell out such a question shall offer much fruit for a teleological use of science i.e. if we can understand all the elements in every field of knowledge we may be able to steadily track the progression of a science over time ad infinitum. This is true because the world is logical in character, that is it follows orderly. A finite set of elements can never produce a whole which is totally different in character, for this would defy the bounds of logic and mathematics. A number can never produce an animal, nor can an animal produce a number. 1 can produce 2. An animal can produce another animal through evolution.

On the Manner in which the Science shall be Conducted

I will follow the core lesson of Occam’s razor: the simple answer is the correct answer. Verbosity conceals meaning and clarity. In this spirit of inquiry, I will use the syllogism. A syllogism is a set of undisputed claims which combine uniquely to form a conclusion. The claims may be disputed outside of the theory on grounds of probability based on overwhelming evidence but one must accept the claims to engage in meaningful learning. One may dispute the conclusion within the theory. I will either provide evidence for the probability of a claim or state its indisputable nature. The conclusion will be a natural self-evident synthesis of claims.

Therefore every argument shall take the general form:

1.Syllogism A…N

Plausible Explanation

2.Synthesis (A…N)

Self-evident Synthesis

3.Conclusion A…N

Self evident Conclusion

On the Nature of Proof

  1. Intuitions are the source of correct knowledge
  2. Intuitions can be mistaken due to lack of complete knowledge
  3. Complete knowledge, or understanding the word God, perfects intuitions
  4. Reality both manifested and unmanifested may be explored via the discovery of intuitions
  5. Description occurs when a one-to-one mapping of concepts is involved
  6. Example: A chair is a chair
  7. Example: A chair with four legs is a chair with four legs
  8. An object is perfectly described when all its elements are described, as well as the relationship between the whole and its parts.
  9. Example: If a chair is composed of 4 legs (X), a sitting surface (Y) a back resting surface(Z) Then a perfect description contains: (X) (Y) (Z) (X-Y) (Y-Z) (Z-X)
  10. A perfectly described object is a statement of truth
  11. Therefore if an element is described it is true

Mathematics:

On Set Theory and its Generalization of all Forms

  1. A set is a collection of finite elements
  2. Indisputable
  3. A set may be countably or potentially infinite (A,B,C…N)
  4. An existing set cannot be infinite
  5. To exist means to have substantive reality, and not imaginative
  6. Proof:
  7. Assume the infinite set A exists
  8. Let Set B= (1)
  9. Let Set C= (2)
  10. Set A= (∞)
  11. The infinite set is every imaginable set combined or not combined
  12. A single element set like B or C is a set
  13. Infinite set must contain all sets
  14. Therefore the infinite set must include sets where an infinite set is exclusively a finite set
  15. Therefore A=B AND A=C
  16. B is not C
  17. Therefore A is not A- contradiction
  18. Therefore an infinite set is not possible
  19. Therefore all existing sets are finite sets

Infinity is a concept rightly belonging to metaphysics, and can only be used as a false approximation within mathematics. (mathematics being a science of definitions, infinity being a concept undefined)

Corollary

The existence of the infinite set must be in base reality. Constructed reality is only composed of finite sets.

On Language and Meaning

  1. Every word is a concept, simple or complex
  2. indisputable
  3. Every concept has meaning
  4. Meaning is a function between consciousness and concept
  5. Meaning (consciousness) is arbitrary,
  6. Therefore every word has arbitrary meaning

Aside: This is the cause of miscommunication.

  1. A simple concept is simple
  2. A complex concept is made of simple concepts
  3. Each concept has arbitrary meaning
  4. Complex concepts have more simple concepts than simple concepts
  5. Therefore complex concepts have more arbitrary meaning
  6. Therefore complex concepts are more likely to cause miscommunication

Aside: This is why academic language is obscure.

On Different Languages

  1. The forms are objective and penetrable to all
  2. Languages map different sounds to the same forms
  3. Therefore all languages are translatable and equivalent
  4. A common language would map a commonly shared set of sounds to the same forms
  5. A universal language is possible (as shown by the creation of Esperanto)

On Unique “Untranslatable” Words in Different Languages

  1. All words are sets of ideas/forms
  2. Certain cultures combine or destruct forms using different ideas
  3. Knowing all the ideas in an untranslatable word is to understand the word
  4. The translation of such a word could happen by creating an arbitrary word-sound associated with the unique combination of ideas

On the Concept

  1. A concept is a set of finite ideas
  2. The set of ideas is countably infinite
  3. Proof New Concept A=(Old Concept B + another concept C)
  4. New Concept D= (A,B,C)
  5. Total possible concepts (A,B…N)
  6. The infinite concept does not exist
  7. Same reason as the infinite set
  8. All existing concepts are finite
  9. A concept is a set of finite ideas
  10. The imagination combines finite ideas
  11. There exist a countably infinite number of imaginations
  12. Therefore there exist a countably infinite number of concepts

On Argumentation

  1. An argument is a complex concept
  2. A complex concept is composed of a countably infinite ideas
  3. An argument is composed of a countably infinite ideas
  4. An argument confirms or refutes a proposition
  5. Therefore there exists a countably infinite number of arguments for any proposition

On Truth

  1. Truth is a correct one-to-one description
  2. Arguments are attempts at correct description
  3. There exists a countably infinite number of arguments for any proposition (above)
  4. Therefore there exists a countably infinite number of attempts at correct description

On Skepticism

  1. Skepticism is doubt
  2. Doubt stems from a conflict of arguments
  3. There exists a countably infinite number of arguments for any proposition
  4. Skepticism is proportional to the number and nature of conflicting arguments
  5. Therefore any proposition can have a skeptical stance associated with it in proportion to the number and nature of conflicting arguments

On Evidence

  1. Evidence supports arguments proportional to the magnitude (qualitative and quantity) of evidence
  2. Arguments attempt correct description.
  3. Better evidence means better attempts at correct description
  4. Therefore better evidence means better arguments

On the True Nature of God

  1. The infinite, Eternal God is above all realities since he is the source of reality itself
  2. God has no form but is the source of all forms
  3. All origins point back to god
  4. God is not visible or manifested in any reality, not even higher dimensions
  5. Only an image of God exists as a proxy for his reality in created worlds
  6. All images of God are false for this reason

On the Need for Divine Revelation for Objective Truth

  1. The thing-in-itself is unknowable to humans (Kant)
  2. The thing-in-itself is the thing
  3. Self evident tautology
  4. God is omniscient
  5. If god exists as axiomatic, then he is omniscient
  6. The thing-in-itself is knowable to god
  7. Therefore God knows the thing-in-itself
  8. God can inspire divine revelation in man
  9. Axiomatic and confirmed by belief not reason
  10. Divine revelation reveals the thing-in-itself
  11. Man can know the thing-in-itself through God

On the Word God and Self

  1. God is the form of all forms
  2. God is one
  3. One must imagine a giant countably infinite form which grows over time
  4. Reason for belief: divine revelation
  5. The Self is illusionary because it is the incomplete form of god, an incomplete set of ideas
  6. If one has not absorbed the entirety of forms, one does not know god and hence one is in the state of possessing a false Self
  7. Ie All Forms= God, All Forms -N forms= N Self
  8. To know God is to know the true nature of reality

Advise: Seek God your whole life and constantly ask what does the word God mean

On the Countably Infinite Nature of Reality

  1. The world is continuously recreated every single moment through an infinite regression
  2. Divine Revelation
  3. Change occurs because this infinite regression occurs over time, the infinite regression is progressing along the space-time continuum and is cut by friction (see below)
  4. The combination of infinite regression and space-time continuum movement produces countable, or potential infinity

On Friction

  1. Friction is the result of space-time continuum energy (movement) shaking/cutting physical reality
  2. Divine revelation

On the Need for Mysticism for Understanding the True Nature of Reality

  1. A system can only be entirely understood if one observes the system from an isolated, non-interfering position
  2. This is true because otherwise the subject naturally distorts the investigation by his inquiry since as a subject he causes an effect on his experiment
  3. This has been proven by the observations of quantum mechanics
  4. Mysticism allows one to transcend one’s own consciousness to view the world from God’s objective non-interfering perspective
  5. Mysticism is the process of discovering one’s own unique consciousness through introspection
  6. Since one’s own perspective on reality is unique (a gift from God), it follows that reality is a unique combination of subjective and objective truth
  7. Subjective truth is the combination of a unique thinking algorithm (an ordering mechanism for form construction and destruction that is unique) and objective forms
  8. Only God’s perspective incorporates the totality of subjective truths on objective reality and hence is the Ultimate Objective Truth
  9. Anyone who seeks the subjective truth sincerely will be guided from above to reach it
  10. Anyone who seeks Objective truth will be guided from above to reach it

On the Mathematical Basis of the Categories of Thought

  1. The form God is a word for the set of all existing sets
  2. Subsets of thought exist united by common ideas
  3. Therefore the categories are arbitrary divisions of the word God

Answer:

  1. Reality may be understood perfectly by all
  2. Reality will be universally understood when every human has absorbed all the forms into their minds
  3. Reality will be understood when everyone knows the word God
