Network Propositions
6800 - 6999


6800
Information is a life-form, and its constituent data have living characteristics. We feed energy to information by giving it our interest and attention ... and thus information grows, and its rate of growth is determined by the level of inputs of interest and attention.


6801
Interest and attention are means of transmitting energy.


6802
We tend to think of information as separate from us, as persons, but the data of information are our prehensile tendrils, by which we feed and grow. Our information and information sources are very much part of us.


6803
Chaos science, in biological applications, has discovered that a small change in one variable may push an otherwise stable system into qualitatively different behaviour.


6804
The concept of a phase-space fix may be that of a multi-vectored intersect, plotted at a given point of time. This concept, useful for handling complex dynamic phenomena, enables a trajectory of points to be traced over time ... and, when new inputs (such as increased energy) are introduced to the system, geometrical patterns of chaos topology may develop.


6805
If all vectors relevant to a complex dynamic system, including time, were plotted, the plot would be an unmoving, magnitudeless point ... that is, singularity. Thus, we may view the geometric patterns of chaos science as the net tracings of all unknown, or unspecified, relevant vectors. Chaos topology may, however, afford clues as to what the missing vectors may be.


6806
Time is usually assumed to be a linear function, but we can have no certainty that it is invariably so.


6807
Instead of concentrating on linear data and screening out non-linear data, chaos scientists now see irregularities as opportunites for us to widen our knowledge of non-linear phenomena. Investigative science has discovered a new paradigm in chaos methodology ... a new way of looking at the universe.


6808
Scientific endeavour is now regarded as instrumental: It no longer seeks its 'holy grail' of proof (which is now seen as chimeric) but is satisfied by 'honest' utility.


6809
All forms are creations and functions of living species ... and they are progressively gestalted from chaos.


6810
In biology, randomness is death: Form is essential to organic life.


6811
Organic life-forms can only perceive formally ... that is, they can only be aware of an environment of forms.


6812
For a fixed-point attractor, the pull is inwards towards singularity.


6813
Monads are transfinite attractors, which attract forms at Cantor Aleph-plus categories (or powers) of transfinity.


6814
Ordinary language contains more than 50%, of sounds or letters, that are not essential to the communication of messages.


6815
Attractors often conflict in seeking to express their forms ... and such conflict creates new information.


6816
Any and all kinds of conflict create new information.


6817
Information is transmitted from small scales to large.


6818
Intellectual comprehension is a macro-function.


6819
Turbulence transmits energy from large-scale patterns to small-scale patterns.


6820
The mind has access not only to information accumulated in this life but also to the evolutionary information-banks of our species.


6821
The patterns of chaos are transfinite; they are intermediate between finity and singularity; they are of the same genus as Plato's ideal forms.


6822
We don't see a thing until we liken it to something we already know: Analogues and metaphors are essential to perception.


6823
Our species consistently displays a wonderful proclivity to the gestalting of wholes from partial data. By reason of this proclivity, we often jump to unwarranted conclusions.


6824
Every activity generates creative patterns: Every pattern has the potential of eternal life, in that it may be induced at any time in the future.


6825
Complex geometric flows of energy characterise the workings of the mind ... and each mind has attractors in its programmes.


6826
Organic life-forms are order-systems which extract and absorb energy from the disorder of chaos. As foetal fluid subserves the foetus, so the energy of chaos subserves all life forms.


6827
The primal bio-data are seeds and the life-supports of the seeds.


6828
To maintain its life, any formalised energy-system (including this network) must increase its usefulness at a faster rate than its rate of entropic dissipation.


6829
Percepts are information; we are what we perceive ourselves to be; we are percepts; we are information; we are information systems.


6830
We are information systems which stretch out tendrils for the finding and absorption of new information: Information is our food and drink: Information is our energy and our quality ... our means of being.


6831
Energy is information. New information has more useful energy than old information. Like energy, information loses usefulness every time it is used: Energy and information are both subject to the entropic law of thermodynamics.


6832
Enmassed energy is enmassed information: Mass is information mass.


6833
Chaos is potential information: Forms are temporary stores of information.


6834
We have our preferences for food, news, music, etc ... that is, for different types of information which interest us. Interest indicates need: That, which we need, we are interested in.


6835
Censors, and other information managers, who seek to screen and select and withhold information, seek to reduce our means of living ... they seek, in effect, to reduce our life.


6836
Censorship involves societal deprivation,


6837
All information is a 'food-pool' from which we feed selectively, according to our interests and needs.


6838
Lack of interesting information induces boredom.


6839
Boredom indicates lack of an interesting variety of information.


6840
Any restriction of variety of information, increases boredom.


6841
Anything which increases boredom decreases life.


6842
Depreciation and obsolescence measure the onset of objectified boredom.


6843
Bodies die mainly because they lack new useful information.


6844
Old, hackneyed information has been deprived of interest ... that is, of usefulness.


6845
That, which is assigned to 'past', is squeezed-out information ... that is, information which has become 'old-hat' and boring.


6846
We are ourselves time-machines: We ourselves create time.


6847
We live by processing information: We live on the usefulness we extract from information ... and we label the tailings as 'history'. History is used information.


6848
The unknown and unexplained are our food sources and food stocks: It is from them that we derive interesting new information.


6849
The universe is comprised of useful and used information: The first is the emerging future, and the second is the past.


6850
That, which stimulates, adds interest ... that is, adds useful information.


6851
It is not possible to deal with information without creating information.


6852
When creating disinformation, one creates information.


6853
We are creatures of information.


6854
Information processors and creators (whether via news, fiction, TV, art, graphics, photography, music, entertainment, speech, advertising, etc) fashion our lives: They add to, or take away from, the very essence of our being.


6855
New paradigms are aggregations and seedings of new energy: They are new life.


6856
Absorbable energy is information: Every thing we absorb is information, including all food, drink and the intake of all our senses.


6857
All qualities are conveyed by energy: Energy is the bearer of quality.


6858
Information is the bearer of energy and, as such, is the bearer of quality.


6859
Information transmits energy: Information transmits quality.


6860
Information is integrally related to both energy and quality.


6861
Individuals vary enormously in their ability to extract and absorb energy and quality from information received.


6862
The more qualitative the person, the more quality it is aware of, in the information it receives.


6863
Awareness of quality is an essential prerequisite of quality absorption.


6864
The more qualitative the person, the more quality it absorbs from information received.


6865
The qualitative status of a person is its monadic status.


6866
Each individual is a monad ... a qualitative, transfinite being.


6867
Monads are quality-attractors: They may be likened to vortices, centred on singularity.


6868
Quality is the usefulness of energy.


6869
Whenever energy changes form, it loses usefulness ... that is, it loses quality.


6870
Quality is absolute and never abates or becomes less than absolute and perfectly complete.


6871
All quality entropically lost by energy, is absorbed by monads and converted to singularity.


6872
Monads develop to self-realisation by absorbing the quality of their environment.


6873
History is a limbo-store to which our species has assigned information left over from the living process.


6874
As our species lives, it extracts usefulness from information, and leaves the residue as history.


6875
As we are a wasteful species, historians and philosophers are able to glean considerable usefulness from history.


6876
Time is what we create as we process information and discard what we don't immediately use.


6877
By checking information against personal experience, we assign our personal evaluation of its reliability. Reliability is essentially a personal, experiential and evaluative concept. In 8o far as we delegate reliability evaluations to those we have faith in, reliability also becomes a matter of personal faith.


6878
This network is a map of existence, which is more abstract in some parts than in others: Some propositions are more abstract and some are more detailed ... but, of course, our perception seems to be a mixture of abstract and detail. Considering the network as a whole, it is a model and models are abstractions. So, we may say that the network is an abstraction which includes a lot of detail. We may also say that most micro-detail, on closer examination, takes on macro characteristics and, what were previously considered as details, become viewed as abstract models. Essentially, all perceptions and propositions are abstract constructions ... that is, abstract creations.


6879
We make no claim that this network 'map' of ours coincides with 'reality' ... but, then again, we do not believe that there is a 'reality' which is independent of our species. The initial aim of this exercise was simply to fashion an instrument or tool to help us in the prediction of the future. However, as the propositional network developed, it seemed to offer further assistance in respect of:

The wider role, into which the network has grown, now includes prediction, stocktaking, philosophy and creation.


6880
Of singularity, our species perceives energy and, of energy, our species perceives mass. The only reality is that which pertains to perception. To understand reality, we must understand perception.


6881
Our species is a life-form, of singularity, which exists and grows by reason of its powers and propensity to differentiate of and from singularity.


6882
Each individual's view of existence is a cluster of paradigmatic models, which may be used to provide a vectored fix on the course of the future. The more views of existence we have, the more vectored fixes we have on the future. One view alone is useless as a navigational fix: It is our collective species which prehends its future. How do we judge the accuracy of predictions? ... we judge on results: The methodology is instrumentalist.


6883
Perhaps it is that we ourselves are creatures of order but, whatever the reason, when we are confronted with a wild untamed thing, most of us feel an urge to tame it. This propositional network behaves and grows like an untamed thing but I feel no urge to tame it ... and the network continues to thrive untamed ... and I can almost feel it thanking me for letting it grow as it wants to grow.


6884
Most of us are overwhelmed and overawed by what we perceive as the mighty universe. Our environment is like a huge juggernaut of 'fait accompli', moving seemingly inexorably from past to present to future. But, what if we ourselves have made this juggernaut from chaos by our own mainly sub-conscious determinations of mind and will, and what if we ourselves have the power to change it all? Perhaps we are being overawed and deluded by a puffed-up shamster of our own devising: Perhaps we naively give the environment too great a billing ... and perhaps we are mistakenly perceiving the universe as marvellous, gigantic, complex, mysterious and important ... and mistakenly seeing ourselves as small and of little account. Worldwide, much rethinking is in process concerning human status and powers.


6885
Sciences are no longer preoccupied with seeking to prove the unprovable. It is now recognised that scientific data, propositions and models can only be evaluated in terms of usefulness ... that is, in terms of instrumentalism. If it works, OK! ... and, if it doesn't, forget it!


6886
Those, who empathise fully with that which is eternal, become themselves eternal.


6887
Friendship and love are life-lines of information and energy and quality, without which we cannot exist.


6888
All forms are stores of information, energy and quality: Analysis and knowledge are the keys by which we gain access and use of these stores.


6889
History is a store of used programmes which we may re-run selectively, as suits our current and future needs.


6890
Time is the measure of our growth, as a species: Time is not a self-standing, independent quality. By our faculties of perception, we impute time, energy and forms to singularity.


6891
Metaphorically, we are fish-folk ... and chaos is our sea, and ideas are the fish we eat ... and new paradigms are tasty new fish varieties.


6892
As paradigms are selective and abstract, we should not expect all truth to be encompassed in one or a few paradigms: Truth is essentially multi-paradigmatic. Thus, truth is democratic, rather than dogmatic and authoritarian.


6893
Each individual viewpoint is as essential to the whole democratic truth as each individual vote is essential to the whole democratic polity.


6894
In order to realise our eternal nature, we must empathise.


6895
To be privy to the truth, we must be privy to all viewpoints.


6896
When people deny that they have a God, or that there is a God, they deny that they have a soul.


6897
By respecting and worshipping a thing, we give it life: By respecting and worshipping God, we give Him life. God does not exist independently of His people: God is the creation and soul of His people.


6898
Names do not make Him other than the one God. Allah, Tao, Yahweh, Ahura Mazda, Amaterasu-Omikami, Brahman, Vishnu, Shiva, Dharmakaya, Amon-Ra, Aton ... and countless other names, He has been called. He does not mind what name we call Him by, provided that we speak His name respectfully and worshipfully.


6899
God is the shared essence of our being: In Him, we are one people.


6900
He, who is empty, shall be filled ... and the empty proven vessel shall be brimmed with the spirit of God: Prepare then the vessel and prove it worthy, and make of it a holy grail.


6901
When we need time, there is no time ... and, when we don't need it, it is available in endless quantity ... and so I conclude that personal time is inversely related to need. Those, who are eternal, have no need of time.


6902
Those, who need to process information, need time for the task. Those, who empathise with information (knowledge), do not need to process it and do not need time. The wise do not need time: They are eternal.


6903
Eternity is not an eternity of time: Eternity is the absence of time ... that is, of the absence of any need for time.


6904
When we look at existence, from a detached viewpoint, it looks like an unstoppable juggernaut ... but, when we move into it and empathi5e with it, we find that we are influencing its nature and its future. We tend to underestimate our powers to influence things and events.


6905
Humans are monad-centred information-systems, with qualities of learning, memory, recall, and creative thought. As monads, we are absolute and have free and full access to all qualities of the absolute.


6906
It is but practical common sense to have our God and to believe in Him.


6907
There is no God apart from us: He is God of us and by us.


6908
He is the essence and soul of our species ... and we naturally believe in Him.


6909
As we believe in our species, so we believe in our God.


6910
We believe that our God is eternal and that our species is eternal.


6911
Our species is 'life' and our God is 'life': We believe in 'life' and we believe in our God.


6912
It all can't happen, but it does. Life is a miracle: We are a miracle: Every thing and every event is a miracle.


6913
By our being, we affirm our belief in life and our belief in miracles and our belief in God.


6914
Anyone, who declares that there is no God, makes an empty and meaningless declaration: It is like looking at the sun and saying that there is no sun.


6915
We cannot live without faith that we will continue to breathe.


6916
Faith is as essential to life as blood and bone and feeling.


6917
Faith and life are one, and this one is the strongest of all: We call it God.


6918
If we lose faith in our God, we lose faith in our species and we lose faith in life itself. It is but practical common sense to believe in God: If we lose Him, we lose everything.


6919
Those who believe in God live of God and by God and for God and seek to do His will.


6920
Those who believe in God honour justice, are merciful, and respect lawful authority.


6921
Those who believe in God believe in life eternal, and are fearless and courageous.


6922
Those who believe in God are good citizens, and they are compassionate.


6923
Those who believe in God see God in every living being.


6924
Those who believe in God commune with Him always and continually seek His guidance.


6925
Those who believe in God worship Him and are devoted to Him.


6926
Those who believe in God believe in Him by all His many names.


6927
Reason is cold, but loving faith feeds God.


6928
God does not accept reason as a sacrifice to Him, but He gratefully accepts and lives by the faith and love we offer Him.


6929
Reason is muddied by fallacy and sophistry, but faith is crystal clear.


6930
Those who truly believe in God believe in Him with crystal clear faith.


6931
Those who believe in Him feel the warmth of His love like magic blood in magic veins.


6932
God, who is all, has no life except the life we give Him.


6933
By giving life to God, we give ourselves life.


6934
Life is no-life without love.


6935
The essence of motherhood is love and love cannot be forced ... and no woman should be forced to bear a child she does not want.


6936
A child has the right to be wanted and loved by its mother.


6937
Scientific observations may be interpreted in many ways. Differing theories, based on the same scientific observations, claim equal empirical validity (see propositions 5368 and 5369). A classic example of this is the debate among geologists as to whether the Earth's volume is static or increasing ... and, mark you, they are arguing on the basis of the same empirical data (and a plethora of it, at that). To this conundrum, known as empirical equivalence, we may add the conundrum of unprovability. It is now recognised, by philosophers of science, that it is not possible to prove any thing, categorically and without qualification. Where does this leave our species?: We may say that it leaves our species, groping prehensively, in the way it always has, from its earliest evolutionary endeavours. I believe that we may ask a significant question, namely ... if our species is becoming increasingly intelligent (and evidence to this effect is compelling), why are we still groping to discover the 'true reality'? The answer probably is that there is no 'true reality' ... and that it just isn't there to discover. 'True reality' may be worthwhile as an ideal objective, like a holy grail, but we may no longer sensibly expect to discover it.


6938
Are then our efforts, of science and of creative intelligence, in vain? of course not! The nub of it all is this, that we are a creative species, which creates its environment and its own life and experiences, as it goes.


6939
Science does not deal with 'true reality': It deals with creativity and creation.


6940
Endeavours of science are endeavours of creativity and of creation. Science is as creative as any area of human activity. Consider the tremendous creative implications of nucleonics, television, satellite transmission and genetic engineering!


6941
If science is very effective creatively, perhaps we should consider more carefully what we want to create. Does our species want to put out rogue science-feelers at random, or does it want to exercise guidance, based on well communicated feedback?


6942
It is now posited here that our species operates as an intuitive and prehensive organic whole ... and it is subserved by its creative intelligence, rather than governed by it. There is well communicated and effective feedback, but it takes place at the intuitive level, rather than on a deliberative conscious level.


6943
Although we, as individuals and groups, may not know what existence is all about, our species does. We may be confused, but our species isn't. We may not know what the future holds, but our species does.


6944
Our species is both finite and transfinite. Transfinitely, it does not blunder about, for it knows its future as well as its past. It puts out its feelers prehensively, but it knows what it reaches out for and what it grasps.


6945
This is not a doctrine of fatalism: A fatalist is one who believes he has no power to shape his future ... but, we and our species create every aspect of our future.


6946
We, collectively and individually, are the masters of our fate.


6947
Our species is an integrated whole, which serves all its individual purposes and individual intuitions and individual wills. Our species is both our master and our servant ... and perfectly efficient withal.


6948
As all existence is qualitative, what is amenable to finite logic? Only that, which is perceived to be finite, is amenable to finite logic. Logic is a function of perception.


6949
All qualities are functions of individual sensitivity.


6950
All qualities are essentially transfinite: The quintessence of a quality is its transfinity. That, of a quality, which cannot be measured or incontrovertibly described, is its transfinity.


6951
As to measurement, because some aspects can be measured, we tend to assume that the quality measured is wholly measurable and, thus, wholly finite. No quality, even finity, is wholly finite.


6952
Sympathy takes us into the transition phase, where finity merges into transfinity ... and, then, sympathy becomes empathy, as our sensitivities up-vibe to transfinity. Empathy is a classic transfinite quality.


6953
Transfinite phenomena are not amenable to finite logic.


6954
One can paint word-pictures of one's transfinite world but language becomes an art-form, rather than a means of precise communication, where transfinite phenomena are concerned.


6955
Finite awareness is characterised, inter alia, by: Poor powers of qualitative differentiation; hate; conflict; jealousy; brutality; cruelty; sadism; hedonism; grossness; materiality; ignobility; insensitivity; lack of mercy and compassion; deviousness; low cunning; intolerance; dogmatism; lack of imagination; occlusion of perception; pettiness; meanness; spitefulness; and low integrity.


6956
Transitional awareness (from finity to transfinity) is characterised, inter alia, by: Kindness; sympathy; compassion; fairness; devotion; improved powers of qualitative differentiation; tolerance; understanding; mercy; forgiveness; sensitivity; subtleties of humour; decency; loyalty; generosity; devotion; open-mindedness; greater happiness; sophistication; and greater integrity.


6957
Transfinite awareness is characterised, inter alia, by: Clear, unoccluded awareness; empathy; clear insight; powerful intuition; great faith; spirituality; perfect understanding; perfect recall; perfect qualitative awareness; perfect sensitivity; complete selflessness; great intuitive intelligence; absoluteness; great vibe-awareness; selfless love; great creativity and imagination; perfect will; perfect happiness; tranquillity; wisdom; complete integrity; and transparent honesty.


6958
If existence is essentially transfinite and if logic is inapplicable to transfinity, how does one deal sensibly with transfinite phenomena?


6959
One's transfinite environment is a function of one's individual sensitivity: One's transfinite environment is essentially a private universe.


6960
One's transfinite environment is a collection of personal paradigms (viewpoints), to which other people have only partial access.


6961
How do we find our way, if we each live in a private world? We live by the love and friendship of family and group bonds; by common needs and shared endeavours; by common faiths and beliefs; by the bonds of common laws and customs; by common language, interpretations and definitions; by pragmatic actions and reactions; and by the gatherings, directions and dynamics of leadership and agreement.


6962
Because our existence is mainly transfinite and private, and because it is continually changing, most of us need to cling to our communal 'raft', for sanity and survival. We tend to grab and hold on to any communal life-lines that are available: Most of us feel essentially insecure without these life-lines. Our personal sovereign powers are incomprehensible to, and beyond the grasp of, most of US.


6963
If most people are 'raft-people', rather than completely self-sufficient beings, why do we concern ourselves with concepts of sovereign monads? Because prediction science is concerned not only with present man but with emergent future man, who is going to have less need of 'rafts'.


6964
If we liken a 'raft' person to a fledgling, we ask what a fledgling needs, to enable it to fly from the nest. It needs ability, faith and courage. Like the fledglings, 'raft' people have the ability, but they need to screw up their faith and courage to the sticking point. Once they have launched themselves upon their several destinies, it all seems simple to them.


6965
Most of today's turmoil follows from people doing their own thing. More and more people are leaving their 'raft'. Moralising and tut-tutting won't change things: There will be more and more individualistic activism, particularly amongst the younger generations.


6966
Logic, on close examination, is a life-line of limited use and, often, only a panacea ... but 'raft' people will cling to it, as if there were nothing else. The more qualitative and transfinite awareness becomes, the less people will rely on logic.


6967
People, worldwide, will tend to polarise between those who consider faith as supremely important, and those who consider faith as naive and of little importance.


6968
All phenomena are transfinite. Our faculties of perception are like a telescope or lens which gathers transfinite data into finite focus.


6969
By our faculties of perception, we perceive transfinite phenomena as finite phenomena.


6970
That, which we see clearly as future, becomes progressively clear as present.


6971
As we perceive transfinite phenomena as finite phenomena, the clear images thus created become established in transfinity. In other words, as we create finitely, we are also creating transfinitely.


6972
A predictor's skills and devices are like a zoom-lens which brings the future into the present ... and that, which was peripheral and penumbral, becomes clear focused reality.


6973
Time series are subsets of transfinity, created by our species. Time is like a video-camera which is in-built in our faculties of perception. With our moving perceptual focus, we create time, where there was no time.


6974
A predictor's skills and devices are like a zoom-lens. As our species improves its zoom-lenses on the future, it will progressively enlarge the present by bringing more and more of the future into the present.


6975
As prediction becomes more and more accurate and powerful, it progressively reduces the time dimension towards a present point ... that is, towards singularity.


6976
The future is decreasing exponentially, and the present is increasing exponentially ... and we are the creators of this interchange. Nothing is lost, as our species assumes transfinite mode.


6977
We are one living species; existence is one living species; all creation is one living, self-created, absolute species. This key concept emerges ever more clearly, hour by hour, as this network develops.


6978
Essential to the concept is that the one living species is finite and infinite and transfinite ... and that it has no dimensional constraints whatsoever.


6979
The living species is intuitive and prehensive. The rationality and syllogistic reasoning, we so much prize, is but one capability of an infinity of capabilities of the living species ... and all these capabilities are available to us, and we are in process of discovering them.


6980
It may well be difficult for many to conceive of a universe which they themselves create ... and that the entire environment, including the stellar universe, is an integral part of our species. Truth is often stranger than fiction.


6981
Turbulence induces transition, or is indicative of it. Turbulence indicates that the boundaries of a state (or condition) have been reached, and that a different state is about to be entered upon.


6982
The increasing turbulence of our environment indicates that a different state is about to be entered upon ... and that a metamorphosis is taking place.


6983
Although much is said about the benefits of peace and of cosseting, the human race would lose viability if it were without wildness and conflict.


6984
Our innermost selves are cohesive and quiet ... and it is strange that our outer species is so conflictive and disturbed. One is tempted to the analogy of the tranquil deeps of the ocean and its turbulent surface.


6985
Atmosphere is the very soul of poetry ... as witness Coleridges's 'Ancient Mariner' and de la Mare's 'Listeners'. If a poet cannot create atmosphere, he or she has failed to create poetry.


6986
The very soul of a work of art is its aura, its atmosphere ... its ghost.


6987
An artist conjures up the ghost of his work and creates, of it, a living being.


6988
There is a stage or point when a work of non-art becomes a work of art: It is the moment of its birth, so to speak ... the infusion of its breath of life. Before that moment, the ghost or soul was not present but, now it has arrived. I speak of the atmosphere ... the aura, of the work of art, without which it was dead but, with it, has now come to life as an eternal being.


6989
To an empath, every single thing and event is art ... for all existence is the work of God, the great artist ... and the empath is able to be one with every aspect, and is thus able to appreciate its art.


6990
Does a person produce its own aura, or does the person evoke responses in an observer, such that observer creates the aura of its own imagination and creative perception? Both views share truth, for auras are transfinite phenomena.


6991
Legal precepts are not spiritual precepts ... and legal judgements are not spiritual judgements. Spiritual judgements are not within the province of worldly authorities or courts (lay or cleric).


6992
Spiritually, it is permissible to make no reply to an accusation ... that is, to any accusation. (Note: This derives from Christ's silence before Pilate).


6993
There is no need for questions or answers in Heaven.


6994
There is no spiritual requirement to ask or answer questions on Earth.


6995
