Universal Constants, Variations and Identities
#12 The ends are determined by their means. (Integrity of purpose)

(Dispelling the lie of: “The ends justify their means.” The truth is that ends are inextricably tied to the means used to achieve them. If we employ destructive means, then only destructive ends can result. Intention means nothing with regard to means… those who believe that learn: “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”

#10 All holons have at least four fundamental capacities. (Potential)
Horizontal:
1) Agency (Maintaining wholeness/identity) Pull to wholeness
2) Communion (Maintaining partness/relationship) Pull to partness
Vertical:
3) Transcendence (Becoming more wholeness) Pull upwards
4) Dissolution (Breaking down into constituent parts) Pull downwards
(see #6 for definition of holon)

## I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t! – Max Tegmark – Cahners Theater

I Really Want To Agree… But I Just Can’t!
I did it again (for a friend) and tolerated another hour of this man’s presentation (see my post following this one where I cover the one I watched on August 31st).
I do NOT report this in a spirit of cruelty or meanness, rather to help others recognize when concepts and causality are being confused. I’m just as shocked as anyone else that this is possible.

Beyond the Higg’s Boson, which is not a convincing ‘discovery’, is his claim that the universe is mathematical at (31:00). “In the sense that it [universe] is a mathematical structure.”

Mathematics is simply a precise language!

Here’s one avenue, but I can give others, that may help understand why mathematics cannot be the universe, rather a means to represent it.

Patterns and shapes can be described mathematically just as they are now being described with my words. When he widens his definition to include them (shapes and patterns, structure,…) they represent literally everything and become part of his definition!

He also assigns humanity as a whole as the designer for technology that our amok running corporations have made (and have led the rest of us who ‘enjoy’ employment with them to build for them). The Cuban Missile Crisis isn’t a problem created by humanity as a whole, rather was created by corporations who work for banksters to further their ends.

Causality is all wrong throughout his presentation. Believe me, I wanted to be enthralled by his wisdom, but I’m left disappointed for many reasons… many for which I’ve made no mention.
