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

Spelen met tussenschotten, lagen en stromen (in Dutch)

Dit is een door mij geschreven hoofdstuk uit het boek De onvermijdelijke culturele revolutie /  |red. H. Konstapel, E. Vreedenburgh, G.J.P. Rijntjes, SMO 1998. Dit artikel trekt lering uit de ervaringen die ik heb opgedaan met het besturen van softwarecomplexen. Onder besturen versta ík dat er iemand is, die weloverwogen, op basis van kennis van zaken, sturing geeft aan een proces van ontwikkeling. Onder een softwarecomplex versta ik een grote hoeveelheid geautomatiseerde code die zeer complex is opgebouwd. In het algemeen is dit het geval als software ouder wordt. Er is dan niemand meer, die bij het origineel betrokken is geweest en … Continue reading Spelen met tussenschotten, lagen en stromen (in Dutch)

About Number and Magnitude

We have lost the relationship between Number and Form or Number and Magnitude as the Ancient Greeks called their Forms. A few years ago a Revolution in Mathematics and Physics has started. This revolution is caused by Geometric Algebra. In Geometric Algebra the Ancient Theories of Euclid and Pythagoras are reevaluated. Numbers are Scalar (Quantum) Movements of Geometric Patterns and not Static Symbols of Abstractions that have nothing to do with our Reality. Movements and not Forces are the Essence of Physics. The basic rule Movement = Space/Time (v=s/t) shows that  Time and Space are two Reciprocal 3D-Spaces. Our Senses … Continue reading About Number and Magnitude

About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

The first part of this Blog is about the Triangular numbers, related to the Number 3, the Holy Trinity. The second part shows that Pascal’s Triangle (called Meru’s Mountain in Mystics), the Binomial Expansion,  contains every Possible Mystical Number Pattern (including the Triangular Numbers) you can Imagine. Pascal Triangle also shows that our Universe is a combinatorial miracle. It explores every possibility, is always in balance, expands and moves back to the beginning which is and was the Void, the Empty Set, the merge of Every Paradox, that is Possible. About Mystical Number-Patterns The Sēpher Yəṣîrâh (Book of Formation or Book … Continue reading About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

About the War of Words

The amount of people that are confused or are creating confusion is growing. It all has to do with Language. New words are created. Languages and Cultures are mixing. New Inventions and Theories are Created and Destroyed. We are in a highly creative phase, the End Game of Time Wave Zero. Is it possible to find the pattern behind this pattern? The Encyclopedia Britannica is the oldest English-language encyclopedia still in print. It was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh and quickly grew in popularity and size. The Brittanica expanded from 3 volumes in 1768 to 32 volumes … Continue reading About the War of Words

About the Conduit and the Toolmaker Metaphor

In 1979 Andrew Ortony was the editor of the book Metaphor and Thought. It contains contributions of John Searle, George Lackoff and Thomas Kuhn. The book started a revolution in cognitive science later called “Embodiment“. The embodiment-movement has proven that metaphors are “the Tools of the Unconsciousness” or the “Foundation of Thinking”. One of the most important articles in the book is written by Micheal Reddy. Michael Reddy demonstrates that 70% of the English language is conceptualized and structured by the conduit metaphor. This percentage is increasing. This metaphor incorporates three interconnected metaphors: Concepts, thoughts, feelings, meanings, sense and ideas … Continue reading About the Conduit and the Toolmaker Metaphor
