“ALL Reality is Transformation” – A Review

Reality: It may seem absurd that I see Reality (indeed, all Reality, hence the capital 'R') as being 'made of' Transformations. I am the first to admit it because this is my view almost despite myself - "I would it weren't so". In fact, it's this very discomfort, this very dismay that motivates me to…

On the Ethics of Silence

"The Tao that can be named is not the Eternal Tao" "He who knows does not speak; He who speaks does not know." I speak now, because I do not know. I'm wondering aloud. The Taoist philosophy outlines various principles which seem to intermingle and relate intimately to one another. An attitude of humility, for…

Substance vs. Space

It is important to distinguish the apeiron, or wu, from the space which emerges from it. They are not the same thing - or if they are, I need to be careful. Just because the Dynamic and the Static define Points and then 1D Rotations etc., that does not mean that every Point is the…

The Hand in the Glove

I've hit a wall... But I will attempt to press on. In the meantime, let me share with you how I hit that wall, and what it is. It began with the realisation that an infinite 'line' of zero-dimensional points will always add-up to a line of zero length - that is, a point! My…

A Breakthrough?

If you've read along this far, you'll have noticed how mercurial these matters can be. And, like mercury, madness isn't that far away... Well, I feel like I've hit something with such resonating truth, such obvious obviousness, that I know this is it! Now, to extract it while avoiding insanity is the hardest part -…

Atomic Loops

Atoms are the building blocks of this physical reality, and, by definition, Scientists should have, upon discovery of quarks, gluons and other 'sub-atomic particles', redefined those to be called Atoms, and so on as our knowledge gets refined - each time moving back 'Atom' to its rightful place. In the Lisp programming language, things also…

A whole lotta Nothing

I introduced the notion of "Wu" quite superficially and off-handedly in my first article Ex Sistere and then said no more about it, other than my position that "Wu" is the before-the-big-bang. But that's bad form. In truth, I wanted to get on to other concepts. Now it's time to look at things again and…

Difference and Existence continued

Hi, welcome back. In my previous post I ended by saying that it was by far not all that could be said about Difference and Existence and I stick to that; there’s more work to be done. So one question to ask is: "Is Difference discrete or continuous? And, by extension, is Existence also?” After a…
