Quotable Quotes April 2018

"We live in a golden age, but we no longer seem to believe in intellectual heroes. So I have tried to live the dream that the world is not the same as it seems." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Its odd... I'm incompatible with people, but I am very compatible with society." ---Nathan Coppedge

"I think I have evidence of this most practical of archetypes." ---Nathan Coppedge, on perpetual motion machines

"Isn't it a bit like a blowpop? The blowpop fallacy." --Nathan Coppedge, criticism of Velikovsky's General Systems Theory

"Science is a minimal criteria macro-discipline, and as such aims to maximize quantity at cost of quality. Philosophy is a maximal criteria macro-discipline, and as such aims to maximize quality at cost of quantity. In other words, philosophy usually fails to provide evidence of the most important things. Science usually succeeds to provide evidence of insignificant things. Many things are discovered between philosophy and science, but very little is discovered by pure philosophy or pure science." --Nathan Coppedge



"Sometimes I think my writing is perfect, and sometimes I think it is too dirty. Anyway, what people eventually learn is that there needs to be a balance between different talents and motives, and the only exception to that is total mastery, which requires total knowledge, and in my mind, philosophy as well as science (and art, literature, magic, immortality… if it comes to that)." ---Nathan Coppedge, message to Eugene Rubinstein


"There will not be a ‘next Gates’ unless America prospers. It is a widely held belief that Bill Gates somehow made it with one trillion-dollar patent for computers. Far to the contrary, it was more like he was a patent mega-lord who bought a lot of small businesses, and had about literally a million thousand-dollar patents, or a billion ten cent shares in a company that exploded. For America to prosper, we need to continue to grow and change our thinking, and frankly at this point given how much we have already tested the boundaries without changing the categories, some aspects of both science and religion may end up being an inhibitor." ---Nathan Coppedge


"Philosophers tend to be happy people who never believe assumptions, and are always honest about reality." ---Nathan Coppedge


"Art is original the way literature is comprehensive, and philosophy is analytic, and science is real, and math is intelligent, and languages are insightful, and magic is useful, and immortality is sufficient." ---Nathan Coppedge


"A lot of people think 2X is the max leverage. Its not the max." ---Nathan Coppedge


"If there are constants, they must secure variation, maybe even desirable variation." ---Nathan Coppedge


"You see, we could just say you're seeking a principled good nature, or a metaphysical standard (morality OR coherence primarily), so I don't know if it is fair to say we should try both first." ---Nathan Coppedge


"Humans should build perpetual motion machines, machines should build God. All else concerning race is past and future." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Always look for metaphors at physics confetences, and fundamental discoveries at poetry readings." ---Nathan Coppedge


"There is one secret Zurich doesn't know: that paradoxical intelligence is more coherent than finite problems. This secret is truly powerful. Knowing it is like owning half of philosophy."


"The secret of Vienna is it swallows men. This is my most profound knowledge of it, even though I've never gone there in my current life."


"Time is challenging, so to speak. Information accumulates, and better be high-quality." ---Nathan Coppedge


"The general advice is, if we are suffering from a physical problem, we need to improve our mind, and if we have a mental problem we need to improve our body. If we can’t improve our mind, we physically die. If we can’t improve our body, we go absolutely insane." ---Nathan Coppedge

ABSTRUSIST MORALITY (1993)

What if the key to everything were nothing?

Maybe if it were good later it would be really good.

Maybe the only good cheating is cheating at cheating.

We should focus on 'savoring the last crumb' by which we appreciate everything.

THE COUNTER-CALCULUS (FEB 2018)

(Prescript: Before there were idiots it was all malarky… Know all the alternatives, climb the magic steps).
I know it will be cold tomorrow, because I'm not going to wear my coat. It happens my coat is enchanted with warm weather.
Sometimes pessimism is the best theory of optimism, because it creates awareness and raises the standard.
We progress when we think of the alternatives. How were we ever right? Well, through our degree of being concerned.
We may have moved on, but it is all necessary.
We can create necessity, for it defines proof.
A higher proof defies necessity.
Back to our roots, magical reasoning.
There is ‘something in there’, for I do not comprehend.
I may as well be an expert, to limit my options.
I should seek sacrosancts, because they have formility!

MULTI-MODULARISM (FEB 2018)

[Coherent Systems 2.A.3.C.3.]
X = Number.
M = A module.
Number of Ms = X.
Number of Ms (X) = Coherent result R.
M(0) = Empty coherence.
MX = R1
MMX = R2
MMMX = R3
MMMMX = R4
If (R1, R2, R3, R4) is a coherent set, then MXMMXMMMXMMMMX = Coherence.
(Soul: Expecting a four).


NEW EXISTENTIALISM (FEB 2018)

Essentially, it adopts a new framework → uses the framework for some new notion → is useful → may be open to meta-interpretation.

Existential Coincidence

...

GROUP FORMALISM (FEB 2018)

Also called Group Formalism, as opposed to formal grouping. I do not consider this list comprehensive.

Pure Theoretics

Modal Formalism

High-Minded Formalism

Survival Formalism
...

EMERGENT CONTRACTUALISM (FEB 2018)

I think its more like this process:
  1. Learn how to negotiate, or encounter a higher intelligence.
  2. Negotiate, either through intelligence or interaction with higher intelligence.
  3. Have an idea.
  4. Contract the idea.
  5. Locate a body of ideas or objects (‘setting’) as a result of the contract.
Now, we can ask whether the ‘setting’ has ‘emerged’ but it is much smarter to see the setting, from our vantage point as a contractualization of our prior ideas, and from others’ vantage points as a continued attempt at bargaining.
My general thesis is that the universe, that is, the real living universe, is far more intellectual than we think. Everything that is not intellectual tends to encounter something supernatural. That is the part we forget when we encounter the physical largesse of our own often inevitable contracts for dominion.
The supernatural aspect mostly only exists in order to ‘reproduce’ — to interact with the contractual, core-idea forming elements, and it may be predatory, but it remains blameless because there are necessities, ideas, and compensation built into the system.
Once we have a contract (with the universe), we can say whether we are being wise or foolish, or if we are just not getting what we want.
...

BLACK IDEAS (FEB 2018)

For awhile things don’t seem to get better, they seem to stagnate.
Then you are sure that you’ve evolved a little bit…
You have a black idea, something to add to your other ideas, until things seem to get a little bit better.
Now we cannot prove that we are not evolved.
Such is the influence of the idea.
And from then on, you decide you are allied to the ‘blackest ideas’ — that is, the ones that are most evolved.
Even so, it is a delicate balance, and it is possible—although difficult even—to imagine another approach or technique going equally far.
The black ideas are one of many methods—although not the worst, to prevent civilization from crumbling.
How high the day, how good the honey—when you can afford more than one!
Things will surely change for the better. How funny it was to think you were being blackmailed!—
It looks the same, but it is different, such is the nature of the best ideas!
One must therefore concern oneself with this mythological thing, this elephant in the room—which is merely one’s ability to comprehend with some completeness the importance of any one of these true ideas.
It is a bit like gambling, but with more reassurance, and within a few measures great things come to pass.
Therefore, acknowledge greatness, and stand in the shadow—civilization is non pareill.
...

INTEGRATED PROGRESS (FEB 2018)

It is much like how a mouse-brain thinks, as exaggerated by the human mind. Potentially advanced, in a smallish form.
“When the present integrates the thoughts of the future, then progress is integrated. Thus, progress is the past of the future, so progress is now. Thought integrated with the present is integrated progress when the present integrates the future. Thoughts of the present are the future of integration.”
The method is the following:
  1. Look back from the future.
  2. Think about what remains of the present.
  3. Act with future knowledge.
  4. Gradually resolve the presence of the future.
  5. See the present as an element of the future.
  6. Calibrate ideas by their arbitrary distance to the future.
  7. Guess future ideas.
  8. Plan history coherently.
  9. Refine timeless models.
  10. Adopt relevant paradines (paradigmatic paradigms).
  11. Use standardized or better metaphysics.

ALTERNATIVE SYSTEMS (FEB 2018)

[Coherent Systems 2.A.3.C.4.]
Proof is Proof (if it exists as such, or to the extent that its considered proof).
What is a proof?
Okay, what we have just stated as the definition of proof is indeed proof as such or considered as such.
Implications:
  • There are many, many variations of proof.
  • Each is a true proof by its own standard, if it has a standard.
  • Everything has its own kind of proof.
  • Everything is proven to the extent that it has a standard.
  • We should seek the best standard.
  • The standard of standards is the standard of proof.
  • There is no proof without standards.
  • The proof of proof is the proof of standards.
  • Proving standards are standard proofs.
  • The standard of proof proves a similar standard of standards, such as universal.
  • The proof, for example, of the universal, is proven by the proof of standards regarding the universal.
  • Universal proof is a universal standard.
  • The proof varies with the standard.
  • The universal proof varies with the universal standard.
  • If the universal standard constitutes the laws of absolute logic, then if such logic is absolute, the universal proof depends on it.
  • Then where the universal standard is absolute logic, the universal proof derives from it, and similarly for other logics.
  • What constitutes the universal standard will be the ultimate basis of proof.
  • Therefore the ultimate basis of proof has a universal standard.

SUBTLE OR SUBTIL PHYSICS (MAR 2018)

[Coherent Systems 2.A.3.D.3.]
1 SUBTLETY IN FORMULAS
In one case, an object is defined by a number of separate formulae… The formulae are collectively, so to speak, what makes the object subtle, which makes it physical. The larger the number of formulae, the more complex the object is relative to the physics, and so any subtlety which depends on more than one formula will also have a subtle physics by some definition.
2 PHYSICAL SUBTLETY
On the other hand, there are cases defined by a single law, in which case it is what is physical that is subtle, because many physical things pertain to the law, and where the number of physical things is many, the difference between physical things is subtle relative to the law, and so, the law is subtle.
3 SUBTLE LOCATIONS
On the other hand, there are things (objects) which vary not by law, nor by formulae, but rather by location, and these things are subtle because their location is subtle, for otherwise, there is nothing to distinguish locations, as the difference in locations cannot be great unless it is lesser between the majority of other locations, and so the difference represented by a location tends to be subtle, unless it is expressed as a law, or a formula, etc.
4 LOGICAL SUBTLETY
Too, there are things that may vary by logical reduction, and here it is clear that if objects do not logically reduce, the logic is subtle enough so as to be NECESSARY, which means that there is something necessarily complex about it, which implies that it is subtle, as it is hard to see why if something were already partially reduced, that it would not be reduced further. Therefore, what is not physical, or formulaic, or subtle in location, is actually subtle logically.
5 INFINITE SUBTLETY
So too, if an object is necessary but not logically subtle, this implies that it cannot be even partially reduced, in which case the object is infinite, which is again another form of subtlety which is hard to comprehend.
6 CONCLUSIONS
Therefore, all indications show that physically, in terms of formulas, in terms of locations, in terms of logic, and in terms of infinity, every thing (objects) are subtle, and therefore we may surmise that physics has a rule of subtlety.
Now we may determine that there is something special about physics:
(1) It may be partly ambiguous or random.
(2) It may be self-determinative in some way.
(3) It may be small and ingenious, and hard to comprehend.
(4) It may be composed of some type of essence or abstract substance.
(5) It may be on the whole inexplicable, because no explanation is large enough.
Therefore, unless further concepts of substantial subtlety present themselves* (*As may be the case) we may assume that physics in its subtlety takes one or more of these forms.
A corollary is that physics adopts those properties that are subtle, insofar as formulas, physics, locations, logic, and infinity are implied within the subtle.
The alternative to subtlety is then also likely to be subtle in at least one way, unless the thing is contradictory in some way.

THE DUBIOUS PROCESS-COHERENCE (MAR 2018)

Not much in this category for good reason, nor can it be considered fully-coherent so far.

PROOF BY MACHINE (MAR 2018)

Ask someone: Relatively speaking, all the potential of life comes from immortality.
If they do not agree with you, in a high-minded sense they must be a robot.

Everything is true in some way about everything → Law by Universalism.
Nothing is true about nothing → Illusion.

Social Science: The Semantic Criticism

There is in first an idea of what has essence, which is merely that which is real enough to impress itself on any medium…
It could be called semiology, homotype, homologic, homology, or any one of a number of names… all with the same ultimate logical potential if we ignore axioms…
What happens is also the theory of critique, the frame of reference, the divested variable, the systematic discord—it, whatever it is, is all that can have limit and measure, because it is all that happens, or at least, it is all that can be observed happenimg in a controlled environment barring some exceptional event.
{An exceptional event would in fact be, under some interpretation, either an iteration or translation of earlier events, or some new invention which changes the natural potential of events if they are corroborative of that new thing.}
It is so to speak, semantics. Now, interpret with fear. For, we must be serious. If we are to see the importance of semantics we must see every neutrality and nuance with enough contrast that each thing is slightly perceptible compared to the next.
It is, so to speak, in its own bubble or caccoon of subtly differentiated meanings. They concern everything, but they are all within one perceptive bubble. A single bubble. A bubble of fearful semantics. A technique, a techniqűe, a technic, or what have you. The bubble is the relevant thing, the communicator, the go-to for solving problems. It is a diction, and a doorway, a lucid derivative, and a reconciliation of everything known.
And yet it is semantics, a single idea. An idea-function.
What happens when this function has form?
Well, it becomes sensitive, it learns, it processes, it takes a form, and then it hardens.
And, all these stages are still semantic logic. Thus, semantics to an extent is this process, but it also consists of essence, and a group of other terms:
Corroboration, cohesion, coherence, relevance, application, and idea.
Indeed, the way semantics play out, idea is a very lofty thing, a kind of limit of all potential. Indeed, ideas may be the limits of semantic potential. Fortunately there is more than one.
Therefore, studying this, you may know how to semiologize, and you will be adapted to the notion of formal idea. You will also relax into the attitude of sophisticated formalizing.
After semantics, some type of imagination should definitely be possible. You merely require a definition, and your mind rambles looking for its natural potential.
Since we know semiotics, we know that natural potential is proven fully by the fact of existence.
Therefore, think, know! And carry on symbolically.
