Effectuationism Philosophy-Physics (E P-P) (Oct 2020)
Grand Cohering Theories
For 2,400 years (academic) philosophers were unaware that their concepts were somewhat determined by premises and the premises and concepts comprised a system and the whole was somewhat self-reinforcing and self-flattering.
Consequently they did not conceive that concepts are system-specific or system-particular and do not translate or transfer across systems.
They knew their formulations did not fit together very well; were not coherent and true-to-life. It is why they kept writing for 2,400 years. But they failed to figure out that they were trapped in something of a Platonic cave, which, ironically, Plato formulated.
Academic philosophy was a self-perpetuating programming system, whose specialists liked to think of themselves as the intellectual cream of society … making it even more difficult to cop-on.
What is a “System”?
Flat Earth Cosmology was a system.
A new system emerged: the Helio-centric Cosmology.
Through the two in tension, the former became apparent as a system, rather than as an absolute.
Then the tension resolved; one thrived and the other declined.
There was no cross-over of concepts between the two systems – no elephants holding up the world and causing earthquakes when they became restless, no sun-boat bringing back the Sun at night to the place from whence it riseth or a new sun being born each day, Stars were not set in the firmament and there was no walking over the edge of the world in the new system.
Instead momentum and (undefined) gravity featured.
Effectuationism – Philosophy System (E – PS) supersedes Categoricalism.
It briefly describes the emergence and concepts of Classical Philosophy and then focuses on expressing E – PS.
Classical philosophy emerged through intellect of the primal senses premises, expressing categorical (unqualified) concepts- -forms such as a tree, a rock, a mountain.
This categoricalism informed Plato when theorising how matter becomes animated and how “soul” (consciousness) “enters the world” and it somewhat determined his formulation of Father Supernatural … emanating life and consciousness.
Academic philosophers then gave the next 2,400 years trying to integrate, in effect, Mother Nature and Father Supernatural … trying to resolve what they called the mind-body problem and other muddles.
Being unhappy with such notions, I contemplated the nature of things for 25 years and then E – PS emerged.
It features high(er) intellect-premises, which feature concepts as indefinite- -dynamic, emerging through indefinite- -dynamic ‘forces’- -premises and comprising E – PS … with intellect of the primal senses – Categoricalism – as a stage of evolution it transcends – to high(er) intellect E- PS.
It appears to me the academics chose to be embarrassed and not to openly comment on it, perhaps fearful to move out of their millennia-old, self-perpetuating robot-cave.
E- PS: “Effect, through, and indeed as, tension of relationship of ‘forces’, indefinite- -dynamic and (inferentially) multi-faceted”.
(Effect: verb, non-referring).
If we are not to self-destruct or become a slave planet, higher intellect must exert to conceptualise E – PS.
Soon the opportunity may have passed.
Further to formulating this new system, I brought it to bear on Physics, producing
1. a grid system (EGS) as alternative to Special Relativity and
2. a formula for curvature of light near massive bodies as an alternative to the warped space-time of General Relativity.
I also comment on (other) events of the last thirty years which are factors to the current advanced Western tragedy.
Effectuationism: A democracy, diversity, nature friendly and true-to-life ideology … in contrast to the incoherent muddle of the last 2,400 years.
Like the best of goods and in accordance with Occam’s razor, it comes in a small package.
