As a teenager in 1970, Classical Philosophy, expressing in my culture, did not make good sense to me. I perceived a logic-leap. I felt there was a reason for everything; that value- -decision emerged through tension of indefinite- -dynamic factors- -‘forces’, multifaceted.               Value: indefinite- -dynamic and multifaceted.

But my culture featured Plato’s “One” – Father Supernatural – emanating static, ideal value and about which all people identified with each other- universal identification.

Its interaction with indefinite- -dynamic Mother Nature-value was incoherently defined, generating  the mind-body problem for 2,400 years – one amongst many of Classical Philosophy – and pretty much conceded by Plato (428-7 – 348-7 BC) writing the Phaedo, speaking through his character Socrates: “Rather than try to give all sorts of reasons for different phenomena, Socrates suggests that in the poverty of our ignorance, we should just cling to the hypothesis we have, the theory of Forms, and rely on that for our explanations”.

I baulked- -paused at this non-true-to-life and incoherent logic-leap in the formulation of the nature of things.

After twenty five years of thinking for myself, noting data of interest to my project, Effectuationism (E-PS) emerged.

I first published it in Jan. 1996 and made it available that Jan. to an international conference. Many slightly revised, more polished versions followed since and recent ones included other subjects such as Physics. (See: Index).

Specialists in philosophy immediately felt the light; felt a giant leap for Philosophy (Scan 2) but also that it was rudimentary, was formulated by someone outside of their Platonic Cave and implication that their profession had for 2,400 yrs., now embarrassingly, endorsed and promoted Bronze Age primal senses- -intellect-informed (non)sense.

It quickly became trendy to rudely discuss it, subject unstated, in my presence, effectively precluding me from right of reply, e.g. to point out that they were (moronically) hybridizing it with their primal intellect baggage.

These Scholars of Ethics apparently lacked the spine, grace, integrity to their profession and love of wisdom to openly comment on it. Perhaps concern for their love of power and prestige took priority over good of the world. 

I suspect some tried to have it, uncredited, inform, e.g., the political world: In the 1990s it might have been a factor to confidence that democracy could immediately feature in non-democratic countries, even ones with conspicuous factions, categoricalist and unaware of E-PS.

If so, they could not even do that competently.

I began to bring E-PS to bear on other sciences.

As the Index indicates, it informed an alternative grid system to Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity.

It also informed an alternative to his General Relativity, which latter is a major problem for coherence of Physics.

It also addresses Emergence and the nature of Gravity.

It coheres with Quantum Dynamics and should inform a modelling. This is apparent in its First Principles:    Second Principle: “Effect, through, and indeed as, tension of relationship of ‘forces’, indefinite- -dynamic and inferentially multifaceted”. (Effect: verb, non-referring).

I developed free of decades of memory cramming and of the tyranny of orthodoxy. This facilitated freedom to consider the connotations of orthodox data- -concepts rather than prioritising their memorisation and recall.

This book is the evidence!

Socrates, long before being sentenced to death by hemlock poisoning, in 399 BC when things were not going well for Athens, for both corrupting the minds of the youth of Athens and for impiety: “The unexamined life is not worth living” and “I know nothing [categorically]”. 

Unfortunately he was not advanced enough to know he was baulking at Categoricalism, without having conceived it as a system nor even conceived: System.
