Nathan's Most Radical Ideas

Cosmosis. Conceptual creationism.

System 2. If God creates another world, it is called System 2. System 2 is the idea of how to fix every problem in the current world.

Neutral Systems. The Second Zero. Similar to invisible technology or invisible logic, except translated as a Copernican revolution for philosophy. Also might have implications for mathematics through the concept of secondary conceptualizations of ordinal numbers, creating lattices and arrays of alternate number systems. The beginning of this is the idea that 0 can involve return to any number.

2-d numbers. These are numbers that depend on the type and rigor of the translation. For example, they can be visuals, deep-stacks, scanned fequencies, etc. They are variables that have structural content. A period of a graph might be a 2-d number. But it is not properly treated unless it has functions outside the graph. But likewise, a picture of a labyrinth might be a 2-d number. Both need to have functions to make it work, so the simplest interpretation is that the interpretation creates the value.

Proportional Numbers. Numbers lying between finites and infinites. The original idea of fractions.

Metem-Physics. The materialism of ideas.

Hyper-Cubism. Although not the inventor of the term Hyper-Cubism (his father suggested the idea, and the concept of tesseract and dimensional art existed in Hungary and Europe perhaps a hundred years earlier), Nathan is nonetheless a major contributor to the aesthetics of hypercubism, and one of the earliest artists to work in the movement during the post-Cubist period with the concept of 4-dimensional expressive art on a 2-d surface.

Modular Citizenship: The concept of treating citizenship like a consumer item that can be improved, and have complex information-functions. Combines with Citizen Government (a government that has the capacity to see its own responsibility to pay debts and obey justice).

The Picasso Style. One of the only artists to advocate that Picasso could be generic enough to be called a style.

The Aesthetics of Logic (universal aesthetics). Nathan has a radical belief that all forms of aesthetics can be translated as forms of logic, thus forming 'universal aesthetics'.

Double-Contingency (objectivity): A philosophical concept based on Meillassoux's concept of radical contingency, this concept led to efficient knowledge and double-comptabilism, and later the concept of double-paradox.

Axiometry (objective knowledge). Universal statements can exist in bounded Cartesian Space. When zero is excluded, they may be deemed universal if the proper formula is followed. The statements are non-contradictory, and thus, have greater coherency than traditional syllogisms. The only exception is paradoxes, and the question of the extent to which a given thing exists, which might be defined politically, culturally, environmentally, etc. (perhaps arbitrarily, but not arbitrarily within the system).

Paroxysm (double paradox). A solution to all paradoxes formed by finding the opposite of EVERY word in the original problem, combined in the same order as the respective original words. If it is a problem and not a paradox, it must include the word 'problem' in the problem, and the word 'solution' in the solution. But if it is a paradox, it does not require the word paradox, because the opposite of a paradox is still a paradox.

Idealese. The ideal language of art, architecture, metaphysics, and ritual practice incorporates organic forms, concrete or ceramic, herbs, meaningful writing, abstract art, and an emotional mentality based on expressionism and leisure.

Asceticureanism. A religion based on moderate aesthetics, emphasizing perfection of one's works, the pursuit of meaning, and the pursuit of immortality. According to this religion, true religion is for the gods, and for most people spirituality is preferred to religion. Religion is an ideal concept reserved for the gods. Therefore, it is not really a religion, but an artistic practice.

Perpetual Motion. Spiritual mentor for the perpetual motion movement, Nathan has been one of the few to advocate the possibility of simple machines with verifiable mechanics over the charlatan's game of self-destroying magnet motors and ridiculous impossibilities. He receives e-mails every few months asking for advice on perpetual motion. He never asks for money, but only contributes advice, hoping someone will realize that he has some of the only viable designs.
