About Alchemy and Logic

This blog is about Logic, Alchemy and the relationship between Logic and Alchemy. Classic Logic is based on the Square of Opposition of Aristotle. This square was discussed for more than 2000 years. Recently scientists detected that the Square is really a Cube. It misses an extra dimension. The Square describes  the six oppositions (“dual combinations”) of possibility (“some”, Particular Affirmative), necessity (“all”, Universal Affirmative), not-possibility (“not some”, Particular Negative) and not-necessity (“not all”, Universal Negative). Geometric Logic is a part of Modal Logic which is a part of Logic. In Geometric Logic the Linguistic Representations of Logic are mapped to … Continue reading About Alchemy and Logic

About Perspective

Introduction When we Look with our Eyes and not with our Mind we can See that Space looks very different from what we Think it is. In Our Space Parallel Lines meet at Infinity. Around 1400 during the Renaissance Painters started to look at Space with their own Eyes and discovered the Rules of Perspective Drawing. Between 1600-1800 Perspective Theory changed from a Theory of Art to a Theory of Mathematics called Projective Geometry.

The most important factor in our … Continue reading About The Rose

Why Music gives Soul to the Universe and Wings to the Mind

I have been a lover of Music since I was born. It was a big surprise to my parents when I wanted to buy gramophone records of Opera’s when I was thirteen. My parents where not educated in music but they loved it. Everybody in my family was singing, most of them in a choir. I was given a beautiful soprano voice when I was a young boy. It was so special that I was more or less forced to sing in theatres. I was a very shy person and the first time I was on stage I almost fainted. … Continue reading Why Music gives Soul to the Universe and Wings to the Mind

How Socrate changed the Cycle of Western Civilization

Many people Project their Knowledge of the Now to History. They Think that People Thought the same Thoughts many years ago. To understand the Spirit of The Time we have to understand the Historical Context People lived in. One way of doing this is to look at a shared foundation and study the Historical Variations on the Central Theme. This idea corresponds with the Insights of Micheal Bahktin. He called the central theme The Chronotope, “The place where the knots of narrative are tied”. I used his theory to have a look at the Cultural Cycle of History. I combined … Continue reading How Socrate changed the Cycle of Western Civilization
