Basics[edit]

Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that examines the nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value.

Bertrand Russell said, "The point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as to seem not worth stating and end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it."

Say goodbye to our physical universe[edit]

For an Alternative View (AV) of every ‘thing’, assume the following statement is true.

The physical universe exists.

The _____ is the definite article pertaining to one.
Physical__ pertains to atoms and energy.
Universe__ means an all inclusive self contained oneness.
Exists_____means to be present, measurable.

However, the following are not physical: Ideas, Dreams, Time, Distance, Color, and more. One cannot have a universe and have leftovers. Ergo, the above statement is false.

Start over and assume the following statement is true.

The physical universe exists and the nonphysical universe exists.

This is like having two baskets. If something doesn’t fit in one basket, then it must fit in the other basket. However, one cannot have two universes. Ergo, the above statement is false.

Start over and assume the following statement is true.

The nonphysical universe exists.

If this is true, then what do ‘physical’ and ‘exist’ mean?

Exist[edit]

The Universe Exists.

What does exist mean?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descartes

Rene Descartes said, “I think, therefore I am.”

It is illogical to say “I think, therefore I am not.”
If I exist, then I exist in The Universe, because there is no other place for me to exist.
If The Universe exists, then it must be a thinking entity.
Ergo, I am a chip off the old block.

Are there others in The Universe? If the answer is no, then how am I to explain our physical universe. Ergo, there are others in The Universe.

If the others are identical to me and I’m a zero, then adding a zillion zeros is of no help. Ergo, there are others in The Universe, and they are all different. So, what can I assume about these ‘others’ which I will call Beings?

Being[edit]

A Being in The Universe has a mind which does its thinking and reasoning. It also has a memory for storing ideas.
I have a mind that processes ideas. Ideas enter my mind. They stay for awhile in my memory before departing. I have an ability to reason, i.e., analyze and synthesize ideas. Ergo, I am a Being in The Universe.

There are other Beings in The Universe, and they communicate with one another by exchanging ideas. However, they differ in their ability to reason logically.

Purpose[edit]

What is the purpose of our physical universe?

Beings exist in The Universe, and they differ in their ability to reason logically. Their problem is what to do with the most illogical Beings?

There are no padded cells in which to confine them, because padded cells are physical, and The Universe is nonphysical.

Even if there were a place of confinement, who decides who is illogical and who is not?

Given a place of confinement, how long should an illogical Being be confined? Upon release, will the Being be better or worse after confinement with other illogical Beings?

To solve this problem, a group of the most logical Beings created what we call our physical universe.

Our physical universe is a self contained set of interacting logical ideas. Since it is self contained, it is a universe but not The Universe. Think of a circle or sphere. Self contained means ideas do not cross this boundary in either direction.

Beings, who start to think about these ideas of their own volition, are born into our physical universe. Their minds process the interacting ideas, and they think the ideas are real. When born into our physical universe, it defines one as an illogical Being and in our particular cases, illogical human Beings.

Death returns a mind/Being to its original position with only an awareness of The Universe. If still illogical, the Being recycles into the physical universe for another life cycle.

The purpose of our physical universe is to teach us how to reason logically. One’s purpose in our physical universe is to learn how to reason logically. Our physical universe is a school and a teacher.

Components[edit]

Our physical universe is a self contained set of interacting logical ideas. Let’s consider these ideas.

SPACE[edit]

Let’s start with the idea of a point. A point is the idea of a position. A point has no length, width, or depth.

Think of a sphere of points surrounding this first point. This sphere has a radius of one point and a physical radius of zero.

Think of a zillion spheres and you are thinking of the field of Space which still has a physical radius of zero. A field is a set of points with specific properties.

GRAVITY[edit]

At the limit of Space, let the boundary or surface points move inward and form incoming radial lines so that the field of Space begins to contract. When these radial lines reach the original point, they represent the field of Gravity.

RAY[edit]

As the field of Space contracts, the incoming lines of Gravity convert to an outgoing linear field called Ray.

KONE[edit]

As the field of Space contracts and at the limit of Space, Ray converts to circles which expand as they reflect along Ray to the original point. This set of expanding circles is the field of Kone.

ELECTRO[edit]

The circle at the bottom of Kone is the field of Electro. As the field of Space contracts, the points on the circumference form incoming radial lines.

MAGNO[edit]

As the field of Space contracts, the incoming opposing radial lines of Electro meet at the center and turn toward Ray. They continue to turn to form the toroidal field of Magno.

SPIN[edit]

As the field of Space contracts and with the advent of Magno, Ray begins to rotate and produce the field of Spin.

SHELL[edit]

As the Space field contracts, Ray increases its rotation rate. At the limit of its rotation, the fields of Ray, Kone, Electro and Magno interlock to form a Shell field.

LINEAR MOTION[edit]

As the field of Space contracts and with the advent of Shell, there are two co-located centers: the center of Shell and the original point. The center of Shell prevents the conversion of Gravity to Ray. Instead, the incoming opposing radial lines of Gravity convert to a field of Linear motion, and the Shell moves outward.

After the two centers separate, Gravity continues to convert to Ray at the original center or point. This Ray moves to the center of the Shell which continues to convert Gravity to Linear motion. It looks like Ray is pushing the Shell outward, but this is an illusion.

Centers[edit]

As the field of Space contracts and at the limit of Space, Shell reconverts to Space and other fields. It unSpins. There are now two centers, and they both convert their incoming lines of Gravity to produce two Shells which also unSpin. There are now four centers, and the process continues to produce zillions of centers as Space continues to contracts

Normal SHELL[edit]

Eventually, these centers coat the Shells and prevent them from contacting the limit of Space. That is, they do not unSpin. Instead, they become normal Shells.

Small SHELL[edit]

As the field of Space contracts, the conversion process continues. This is also true for the centers of the normal Shells. However, Ray only goes to the surface of the normal Shell. Therefore, for each normal Shell, the conversion process produces a single small Shell inside its normal Shell.

Smallest SHELL[edit]

As the field of Space contracts, a normal Shell containing a small Shell makes contact with the limit of Space and unSpins. This frees the small Shell which repeats the conversion process to produce inside a smallest Shell.

Big Bang[edit]

As the field of Space contracts, it approaches the end of its compression period. Space produces Spin, and all Shells rotate in a single direction. The temperature climbs, and the centrifugal force is enormous, but there is no space for the Shells to expand into. Space continues to contract until these conversion processes are no longer possible. At this point in time, the surface of Space has wrapped itself around many Shells. Also, the surface of Space makes contact with many of the Shells. They unSpin, and a Big Bang occurs. The Shells of our physical universe expand to look like a large, rotating disc.

Our physical universe cycles from one Big Bang to the next. We are now in an expansion period. Also, the above creation just repeatedly moved points out and in.

Translation[edit]

Our physical universe is a self contained set of interacting logical ideas. We process these ideas and think they are real.

Our physical ideas comprise the field of Space and ten other fields: Gravity, Ray, Kone, Electro, Magno, Spin, Shells, and Linear motion. There are three sizes of Shells: Normal, Small, and Smallest. Except for their size, they are identical. These fields are often called energy fields, and they reconvert to Space with the passage of time.

The task now is to translate the above terms into more familiar terms. Please click the translation link below to go to the second page of this article.
