  • Love Exists…. Where it can.

    Sexual love, romantic love, family love, friendship love, universal love. They all exist. But like anything else biological, they exist only in conditions under which it they are possible to exist. Worry about the conditions, and the love will occur. Worry about the love and ignore the conditions, and it cannot

  • Natural Law

    If we define Moral Intuitions as the reactions we feel in response to our thoughts and actions and those of others. If we define Normative Morality as the reactions we feel given  for methods of decidability given some set of assumptions. If we define philosophy (positive and literary) as the search for methods of decidability within a domain of preference, and If […]

  • The Dimensions of Reality: Mathematics As Science of Measurement – But Stated Badly

    Mar 22, 2017 11:08am I THINK THIS MIGHT BE HARD FOR YOU BUT …. (mathematics and truth) (very important) (hot gates pls read) The answer is quite simple: you just demonstrated proof of operational construction and named that series of actions. Reality consists of the following actionable and conceivable dimensions: 1 – point, (identity, or correspondence) 2 – line (unit, […]

  • The Layer Cake of Social Order

    THE LAYER CAKE OF SOCIAL ORDER REPUTATION (…) Weapon: Ostracization (death sentence) Records: Memory of Locals RELIGION Religion evolved to provide understanding of the word, virtues to imitate, and general prohibitions, across clans, tribes, and conquered nations, so that people could cooperate more easily and retaliate (feud) less frequently. Weapon: ostracization (deprivation from opportunity) Records: memory of locals, religious registries and ceremonies. […]

  • Series: Models of Decidability … And explanation of the importance of Series

    SERIES: MODELS OF DECIDABILITY (very important)(advanced) Michael Andrade teased me the other day for posting so many series, often without resolution. Why? Each series is an attempt at creating a proof. An attempt to create a set, series, sequence, spectrum, that increases the precision of every definition by its membership in that spectrum. I try to include as many terms […]

  • Series: Coherence, Judgement, Truth

    SERIES: “COHERENCE, JUDGEMENT, TRUTH” Bill, (All), I had to think about this overnight, but I think you’ve given me a way to speak about the difference between: – internal coherence (decidability in pursuit of preferences) – and judgement (decidability in resolution of conflict). And I am going to have to incorporate the three factors somehow: 1) competitive utility of personal […]

  • Series: Definitions: Economic Schools

    ECONOMIC SCHOOLS IN ONE LESSON (from elsewhere) Can I put the seed of an idea in your head? AUSTRIAN (German – Science) Austrian School: the search for economics of social science (natural law), and the means of improving institutions of cooperation without interference in the information system of the economy. Assumes the civilizational, generational, business, vocational, pedagogical, and fashion cycles, […]

  • Series: Instrumental Extensions of our Memories

    Symbols provide an improvement upon memory. Writing symbols evolved to create lists of inventory. A journal is an improvement upon lists. An accounting system is an improvement over a journal. A hierarchical database is just the automation of an accounting system. A relational database is just an advancement over an accounting system. A document store with a searchable full text […]

  • Defining Philosophy

    WORKING ON DEFINING PHILOSOPHY I have been working on defining philosophy (because like truth, it wasn’t defined before). And you know, there are a few ways to approach it: western philosophy (argumentative methodology) or philosophy in all cultures (multiple argumentative methodologies). And whether the philosophy is literary and imaginative (possibilities), escapist (most), a form of assistance(sinic), or problem solving (western). […]

  • Forms Of Argument in Retrospect

    Forms of argument evolve just like mathematics did: adding layers of precision Myth (narrative analogy) Religion (Internally consistent myth) Reason ( possibility ) Rationalism. ( justificationism ) Analytic rationalism. ( Consistency ) Existential criticism ( Operationalism) You see. In hindsight it’s obvious. It wasn’t though 😉

  • Types of Promise(Warranty)

    Unless one starts with a definition of truth these are fairly meaningless words. More desperate attempts to apply axiomatic or theoretic rules to loaded, framed, colloquial speech without the awareness that colloquial speech evolved to tolerate laziness, obscure ignorance, convey moral promise, and as such is neither axiomatic or theoretic but merely “meaningful”: conveying associations not necessary relations that are […]

  • There Is Only One ‘Philosophy’ If We Speak The Truth. The Rest Is Ignorance, Error, Bias And Lies

    (very important for anyone interested in philosophy) *(How should we teach Philosophy? Let me tell you.)* One can teach philosophy as historical LITERATURE(Errors, Lies and Failures). Or one can teach philosophy as the evolution of TRUTH TELLING (science). If you want to teach the history of TRUTH then you teach western philosophy – at least you teach a small subset […]

Positive Right: a contractual obligation by another party to perform actions: to […]

  • What Do We Meany by Natural Law?

    (with updates by Doolittle) A Little History of Natural Law – From The Good, to the Moral, to the Rational, to the Scientific. What is Law? Law, in its generic sense, is a body of rules of action or conduct prescribed by controlling authority, and having binding legal force. That which must be obeyed and followed by citizens subject to […]

  • Repositioning Economics, Sociology, Philosophy and Law

    [S]o today I have discussed repositioning economics as social science, and social science as pseudoscience. And repositioning philosophy as positive aspirational literature of rationalist priests, and negative critical law, of empirical judges. This mirrors the epistemological method of creative free association to arrive at hypothesis, and criticism to test theories in the hope of discovering laws from that survives. This […]
