What You Will Like – And Not

What You’ll Notice

I intended to reach an audience of Europeans first, and the broader world second. The reason being that in a repetition of the undermining of the Roman Civilization, the western world has been under assault – by war against our institutions, because our civilization is most open to internal competition, internal sedition, and internal undermining. That’s because we evolved competing institutions rather than the monopoly institutions of a monolithic state of East Asia, or the monolithic religion of the Middle East and Central Asia (the South Eurasian Semitic peoples), or the monolithic culture of India (the South Eurasian Indic peoples). So, because of this market tolerance for competing institutions and elites, those same European institutions that allow and encourage European dynamism (rapid evolution) are more vulnerable to undermining and warfare from within than the other primary civilizations, of the other primary races.

So you’ll notice what appears to be a European bias in much of the work. This bias is due to the decidability provided by the value of the rate of evolution and conditions of prosperity made possible by that rate of evolution. And the West developed a set of habits we call a “civilizational strategy” that maximized adaptation(evolution) and therefore the rate of development and relative wealth and agency despite small numbers on the edge of the bronze age, in exchange for paying higher cognitive, psychological, emotional, reproductive, social, and political costs than other civilizations. And so, by maximizing adaptation the West evolved faster than all other civilizations combined in each of the bronze, iron, and steel ages.

It won’t become clear until we are well into our journey why it was that the west discovered and institutionalized a set of presumptions (Metaphysics) and a resulting system of thought consisting of what we think of as observable, testifiable, evidentiary, empirical, and scientific truths. And that this discovery of evidentiary truth and systemization of evidentiary truth, was an accident of history – a glorious accident.

But this is a work of logic, science, and logical and scientific law. Meaning that The Law is universal to man – and universal to all sentient, imitative, sympathizing, empathizing, cooperating, conscious creatures with cognitive agency for that matter.

So any person, any people, any civilization can make use of The Law and gain the benefits of doing so, or diverge from The Law and pay the costs of doing so. Just as we can gain the benefits or pay the costs of diverging from all logic, science, and evidence.

And because people always seek to pay the lowest costs and obtain the greatest benefits, and justify (excuse) their behavior as within the limits of criminal, ethical, and moral behavior, there will always be those who seek falsehood over truth, comfort over truth, magical thinking over truth, and who will externalize those costs on the rest of society in the hope that better people will pay them.

It’s relatively easy to organize and synthesize information for people within or across scientific disciplines. Conversely, it’s relatively difficult to educate people in those disciplines and then teach and demonstrate a universal vocabulary, grammar, and logic of commensurability, consistency, and coherence across those disciplines.

This challenge of uniting the sciences is the reason P-Logic, P-Science, and P-Law is difficult for many people because to know WHY it works is very difficult until one understands it, even if USING it is like diagramming sentences and writing software – relatively easy.

Fluency in mathematics and philosophy is sometimes a hindrance because they are dependent on archaic vocabulary and set logic – instead of operational logic – a topic which we will cover early on.

Programming, like engineering, or chemistry is an operational logic and is as big an evolutionary leap in the logics (including math) as Calculus was in mathematics, Marginalism in economics, and Evolution in biology. And that’s what’s ‘gone wrong’. We haven’t applied that innovation widely enough – yet. Although we see some glimmers of hope in the next generation of AI theorists (like Joscha Bach).

What You Will Not Like

When justice lifts her scales and delivers her verdict, without exception, it provides all parties internal to the conflict with equal dissatisfaction. And I suspect that will be the reader’s experience.  Common complaints have included the realization of just how robotic we are, because we so unconsciously run our civilizational software, just how simple we are because of it,  just how amoral man is, just how hostile the universe is, just how harmful or evil some people, groups, and civilizations are. Yet we still evolve and many of us manage to find the find joy in the brief lives we have within this hostile universe – by finding joy in one another and the victories of man despite that universe.

The Greeks invented both evidentiary truth and universal tragedy, and in that discovery, that joy in one another is the only means of tolerating the harsh reality that the universe is almost always and everywhere hostile to life – especially expensive, sentient, conscious life.

It’s this joy I seek to bring about – despite the tragedy of the truth.

But You’ll Benefit Either Way

We all benefit from learning the truth whether we like it or not. ?
