#19 The Inverse Awareness Relation

The Inverse Awareness Relation establishes a fundamental relationship in our universe:

Micro Awareness = \dfrac{1}{scope}


Macro Awareness = \dfrac{1}{depth}

\dfrac {Micro Awareness}{Macro Awareness} = \dfrac{depth}{scope}

Which essentially state:

The closer awareness is in some way to an entity, the more depth and the less scope it discerns.

The farther awareness is in some way to an entity, the more scope and the less depth it discerns.

(Be careful, this idea of closeness is not the same as distance.)

Is Real World Knowledge More Valuable Than Fictional Knowledge?



Here an excerpt from a short summary of a paper I am writing that provides some context to answer this question:

What Knowledge is not:

Knowledge is not very well understood so I’ll briefly point out some of the reasons why we’ve been unable to precisely define what knowledge is thus far. Humanity has made numerous attempts at defining knowledge. Plato taught that justified truth and belief are required for something to be considered knowledge.

Throughout the history of the theory of knowledge (epistemology), others have done their best to add to Plato’s work or create new or more comprehensive definitions in their attempts to ‘contain’ the meaning of meaning (knowledge). All of these efforts have failed for one reason or another.

Using truth value and ‘justification’ as a basis for knowledge or introducing broader definitions or finer classifications can only fail.

I will now provide a small set of examples of why this is so.

Truth value is only a value that knowledge may attend.

Knowledge can be true or false, justified or unjustified, because

knowledge is the meaning of meaning

What about false or fictitious knowledge? [Here’s the reason why I say no.]

Their perfectly valid structure and dynamics are ignored by classifying them as something else than what they are. Differences in culture or language even make no difference, because the objects being referred to have meaning that transcends language barriers.

Another problem is that knowledge is often thought to be primarily semantics or even ontology based. Both of these cannot be true for many reasons. In the first case (semantics):

There already exists knowledge structure and dynamics for objects we cannot or will not yet know.

The same is true for objects to which meaning has not yet been assigned, such as ideas, connections and perspectives that we’re not yet aware of or have forgotten. Their meaning is never clear until we’ve become aware of or remember them.

In the second case (ontology): collations that are fed ontological framing are necessarily bound to memory, initial conditions of some kind and/or association in terms of space, time, order, context, relation,… We build whole catalogues, dictionaries and theories about them: Triads, diads, quints, ontology charts, neural networks, semiotics and even the current research in linguistics are examples.

Even if an ontology or set of them attempts to represent intrinsic meaning, it can only do so in a descriptive ‘extrinsic’ way. An ontology, no matter how sophisticated, is incapable of generating the purpose of even its own inception, not to mention the purpose of the objects to which it corresponds.

The knowledge is not coming from the data itself, it is always coming from the observer of the data, even if that observer is an algorithm.

Therefore ontology-based semantic analysis can only produce the artefacts of knowledge, such as search results, association to other objects, ‘knowledge graphs’ like Cayley,…

Real knowledge precedes, transcends and includes our conceptions, cognitive processes, perception, communication, reasoning and is more than simply related to our capacity of acknowledgement.

In fact knowledge cannot even be completely systematised; it can only be interacted with using ever increasing precision.

Universal Constants, Variations, and Identities – #17 (Representation)

#17 Interiority and Exteriority arise together. (Representation)

For every interior representation there is always an exterior representation that compliments it. For every exterior representation there is always a corresponding interior one.

Don’t take this as an actual knowledge representation; rather, simply a simulation of one. I’m working out the colour, transparent/translucent, camera movements, and other technical issues.
In any case you may find it interesting.
The real representations are coming soon.

Deep Insight Of Virtue

Universal Constants, Variations and Identities – #16 (Creation/Discovery)

Universal Constants, Variations and Identities
#16 Creation and discovery compliment each other and are the means in which the Universe fundamentally unfolds and enfolds itself (Creation/Discovery)

We tend not to identify them, because there are so many variations in their harmony. Please do overestimate your thoughts… as you will see they are the beginning of your expression to and of the world.

Both Creation and Discovery will work in unison, if we allow them.
Discovery is to recognize/relate what is in your world.
Creation is to transform/synthesize it too.
Each is alone without the other.

Creation=Right ‘brain’ (right+mind)
Discovery=Left ‘brain’ (left+mind)

Their ‘magick’ (sic.) manifests not when you synchronize them; rather, when you harmonize them.

Universal Constants, Variations and Identities – #15 (Change/Time)

Constants and Variances 1clock clock

#15 Time is a temporally ‘linear’ (directed) form of change that is not limited by dimension. (Change/Time)

Time has been arbitrarily and wrongly assigned to dimension. Change is not restricted to any dimension: therefore time is also not limited to it.

I know it’s trendy to see time as a dimension, but dimension is something completely different. Stay tuned to find out what and why.

Update: There are many reasons why time needs a proper definition. Here are a few of them:

The chemical reactions in the vessel are not really effected by some mysterious thing called time, but by the number of contacts or collisions that take place in the soup of atoms or molecules. That is what the factor ‘T’ really stands for.MathematicalTime

1) Eternity may be a somewhat mystical overarching reality outside of the physical universe, but time is not. Nor is time a thing that anybody can do anything to. In other words: it cannot be reified.

2) The universe doesn’t exist in time, but time exists in the universe.

3) The proper definition of time is exactly:  the sequence of events in the material universe.
