CTMU an Undeniable Prognosis-Part 3- Defining Reality
Reality=Reality contains all and only that which is real. Anything outside of reality real enough to effect reality is already on the inside and included in reality. So there is nothing external or outside reality. And the same applies to the universe as a whole. Anything outside the universe that actually bears an effect on what we would consider the boundary of the universe or anything outside of that boundary able to effect the universe from inside then its perceived boundary is already real to enough to be included in the real universe because it has effect on it. And since it has effect on something that could be perceived in the universe means its real and already on the inside. And so that wouldn’t be the proper boundary. And there really in this sense can’t be a boundary that separates outside of reality other than imaginary. Because anything not real enough to effect reality or be perceived in any way doesn’t exist. If something isn’t real it doesn’t exist. So even more importantly TRUTH can be defined in the CTMU as weather it is real or isn’t. In other words if something is true it amounts to being included in reality. And false amounts to being unreal. So the truth factor is merely inclusion or non inclusion in reality. And that means that the idea of truth itself is comprehensively distributed over all of reality at every single point in space time everywhere in the universe. Truth is a universal property accepted everywhere by virtue of existence. So anything that exists is true. And so this would apply to every dilemma in the universe say in cases of if someone is lying or telling the truth the question is whatever they said happened is, is that event actually included in reality? Did it happen and was its existence real? This definition of truth shows that its practically our destiny to find truth and that it can’t hide forever since its everywhere. The truth no matter what in some way can be uncovered. Even if it say in cases of history the truth still at one time existed. But what’s for certain is that these definitions show it is possible even with a finite mind to examine the whole universe and develop a truth theory for everything. And these definitions are taken directly out of the CTMU and they are all contained in the mother of all explanations of the theory in the 56 page paper “A New Kind of Reality Theory”. But its not as if we’ve just completed any kind of reality theory it gets much more complex than this. So lets go a little bit deeper.
We’ve already defined reality in the most straightforward way: Reality consists of all and only that which is real. And to add anything outside of reality that’s real enough to have any kind of effect on reality is already included in reality by definition is REAL and is on the inside. This definition amounts to a tautology which we’ll get to shortly. But this definition of reality represents closure, it shows that the universe is self contained and already the way we’ve defined the truth attribute shows that our theory already possess closure. But this definition doesn’t complete the theory by any means and in fact its just the most general and basic definition and although it qualifies we can define reality in a more consistent and specific and comprehensive way that’s more synonymous with a theory of the universe.
(The following definition of reality comes directly out of Langan’s 56 page paper a New Kind of Reality Theory. And the first sentence is about the simple definition we’ve just used)
While this characterization of reality incorporates a circular definition of relevance, the circularity is essential to the reality concept and does not preclude a perceptual (observational, scientific) basis. Indeed, we can refine the definition of reality as follows:
“Reality is the perceptual aggregate including (1) all scientific observations that ever were and ever will be, and (2) the entire abstract and/or cognitive explanatory infrastructure of perception (where the abstract is a syntactic generalization of the concrete standing for ideas, concepts or cognitive structures distributing over physical instances which conform to them as content conforms to syntax)”. This is more of a complete and descriptive definition adding to the first one. So reality consists of all scientific observations that will or have ever happened in all of time ever. All scientific observations for all of the past, present and future that will ever happen or has. Furthermore this is one more aspect to this: Reality contains all of thought that will ever be or has ever been thought. That’s what the entire abstract cognitive infrastructure means-Thoughts because that’s what they are an abstract concept. And the entire cognitive or mental explanations of anything that can ever be perceived or seen in anyway ever for all time. So as you can see the universe can be defined and its actually not all that difficult to define or grasp. And certain concepts can become more abstract and complex but when you do understand them its as straightforward. But i don’t have them all fully understood yet but when I do I will be writing them down. And again the only things I will take any kind of credit for is merely me explaining in my own words my understanding of it. Not having anything to do with inventing or discovering the concepts. With that said reality theory possess three key attributes in describing the universe that are inherent properties of the universe.
1.Comprehensiveness 2.Closure (self contained or reality contains all of its own stuff) 3.Consistency Our definitions alone already possess these things. So we are definitely on our way to understanding the theory of the universe.
We started by defining reality contains all and only that which is real. We then furthered the definition for a more exhaustive and complete definition: (In my own words) Reality contains every perception for all of the scientific observations that have ever been made or ever will be made or that could be made and reality consists of all of the cognitive explanatory infrastructure or basically all of the thoughts that will ever be thought of. So all of the observations and all of the thoughts behind it.
That’s the complete definition of reality or everything that exists.
But I’m not done here quit yet. Remember that I said a true theory of reality has to be constructed based on logic. And along with that the three key attributes we used above in the CTMU is called the 3 C’s. And these properties resemble tautologies. So they are tautological in form. And with the 3 C’s are assigned three other properties that use the 3 C’s and compliment each other in the process. A theory that’s constructed this way is what’s known as being super-tautological. Just a bunch of concepts that are tautological and put together which then emulate the 3 C’s in their description of the universe. The other three properties are the 3 M’s= M=R, MAP, MU. 1,Mind equals reality principle 2.Metaphysical Autology Principle 3. Multiplex Unity Principle. It is these principles and some others i.e. Syndiffeonesis, Principle of Linguistic Reducibility and some other Auxiliary principles which make up the foundation of the CTMU. And it is understanding these that are key. A few other precursors; In doing this one needs to understand what a tautology is.
A tautology is the most basic form of logic that governs and applies to everything logical. Its the most basic rule of thinking. The most rudimentary train of thought that one can have and is ultimately the truth concept. It starts with a tautology. I’ll first let his 56 page paper do the speaking (taken from page 13 the 2nd paragraph: “[In sentential logic, a tautology is an expression of functor-related sentential variables that is always true, regardless of the truth values assigned to its sentential variables themselves. A tautology has three key properties: it is universally (syntactically) true, it is thus self-referential (true even of itself and therefore closed under recursive self-composition), and its implications remain consistent under inferential operations preserving these properties. That is, every tautology is a self-consistent circularity of universal scope, possessing validity by virtue of closure under self-composition, comprehensiveness (non-exclusion of truth), and consistency (freedom from irresolvable paradox). But tautologies are not merely consistent unto themselves; they are mutually consistent under mutual composition, making sentential logic as much a “self-consistent circularity of universal scope” as any one of its tautologies. Thus, sentential logic embodies two levels of tautology, one applying to expressions and one applying to theoretical systems thereof. Predicate logic then extends the tautology concept to cover the specific acts of attribution represented by (formerly anonymous) sentential variables, and model theory goes on to encompass more complex acts of attribution involving more complex relationships. Additionally: For example, take the sentential tautology “X v ~X” (X OR NOT-X). Applied to perception, this means that when something is seen or observed, it is not seen in conjunction with its absence; if it were, then two contradictory perceptions would coincide, resulting in a “splitting off” of perceptual realities. In effect, either the consciousness of the observer would split into two separate cognitive realities in a case of chain-reactive dissociation, or the observer himself would physically split along with physical reality. When “X v ~X” is composed with other tautologies (or itself) by substitution, the stakes are exactly the same; any violation of the compound tautology would split perceptual and cognitive reality with disastrous implications for its integrity. [Page]28
After its tautological nature, the first thing to note about sentential logic in the context of reality theory is that against the spirit in which it was founded — it does, after all, represent the rules of the mental processes [Page]29 of cognition and perception, which would seem to endow it with a mental character from the start — it has a basic functional inadequacy: it seems to require an external
logician to mentally read, understand and apply it. On the other hand, nature (or cognitive perceptual reality) requires no external logician to apply the rules of logic. Therefore, the proposed tautology-preserving principles of reality theory should put mind back into the mix in an explicit, theoretically tractable way, effectively endowing logic with “self-processing capability”. This, after all, is exactly what it possesses in its natural manifestation, reality at large, and is an essential dimension of the closure property without which truth is insupportable. That is, reality must be able to recognize itself and impart this ability to its components as a condition of their existence and interaction.]”
So a tautology is 2-VL logic. Or 2-valued logic. There are two values. A or -A; A or not A. Consider these values as variables. So will attach a property to the variable A. Say a green lawn. A=Green lawn. then not A or -A=the lawn isn’t green. What a tautology is saying is that either the lawn is green or it isn’t. A and -A are mutually exclusive. So it has to be one or the other in this universe it can’t be both and also it can’t be neither (This concept is relevant to bring out because it applies to all scientific phenomena and philosophical inquiry and all mathematical axioms of interference are based off of the tautology concept. Its getting at the idea of the simplest and most basic form of thought if we break everything down. How do we know this and that and so forth. Tautologies are essentailly showing that you can get to the bottom of knowing with logic. Its the most basic and fundamental rule of thought that’s brought out in the CTMU). If we are talking about a lawn that exists either it is green or it isn’t. It can’t be green and not green at the same time. And the lawn has to be green or not be green. It can’t be neither of those two options. Not if the lawn exists. So if we ascribe the attribute green to describe the lawn a tautology is saying either 1 of 2 things. The lawn is A-Green or -A it isn’t green. Another color constitutes not green so its -A. Green at all constitutes A and that covers all existing and conceivable possibilities. Either its A or its not A. The lawn in this definition can’t be both. Grass can have more than one color but in this definition any amount of green constitutes a green lawn. whether it has yellow or not or some other color isn’t the point. If there is a shred of green its A. Cause if it is -A then not green and therefore no green at all. So the tautology is saying there can’t be no green at all and green at the same time. And this kind of logic applies to everything even the profound. It applies to God. Either there is a God or there isn’t. A=God; -A=No god. It can’t be there is a God and isn’t at the same time. Cause if that were true then that’s saying there also is a God which means there is which rules out the idea of no God existing. And also in a tautology it can’t be neither. There can’t be No God and not no god either. The latter has no meaning. There is a God or there isn’t. Its not neither A or -A. It has to be one or the other if you ascribe some kind of predicate or statement to reality about anything. The idea of not even negative A has no meaning. So this definition of reality provides absolute closure to every single truth statement, and consistency and comprehensiveness. every single idea or argument or any kind of proposition or observation or anything at all. There is no escaping tautologies. Even the mere act of looking at something and making an observation is a tautology. When you look at something. Its not possible to see an object and at the same time NOT be seeing it. When I see a tree I see A=tree. And I see everything around the tree of that which the tree is not -A.
There is no way out of tautologies and there are plenty of scientific examples that reality conforms to tautologies. But on one level or another everything conforms to the structure of a tautology. Take for instance the opposite charges of particles. A proton P+ has a positive charge. An electron E- has a negative charge. Since opposite charges attracts based on tautologies we can make the prediction with certainty that like charges repel. Even though this is something science has already figured out it is an example of something that is tatuological. And many problems can be solved this way. By using tautologies as an investigative method of guiding our thought process. But the fact that if something has a charge it can’t be both negative and positive at the same time. Either its A=positive charge or -A-negative charge. Has to be either A or -A. And that’s the most fundamental logic that the CTMU is constructed by. There is no way out of tautologies. Even in quantum uncertainty the electron is in this place or that place. Its on this energy level or that one. Even if you make the argument that an electron can be several places at once-say four places for one electron. Or it at least appears to be and probably is. That’s still tatuological. Now a bit more complex. But the same idea applies: Its in four places in one moment so that’s where it is=A and every other place in the universe excluding those four is where the electron isn’t -A. In organic biology the boundary of a cell ends here and so a different cell starts here. So this gives us insight into curing and tracking down cancer. The cancer cells are here on the tissue and this is where it ends and they aren’t. Then what separates a cancer cell from a cell that isn’t. Cause it can’t be a cancer cell and a healthy cell at the same time. And then you’d look at cell membranes etc. nothing becomes more profound. It never can. Its how the universe and how reality works. Which brings us “back to the basic definition of reality:It contains all and only that which is real. so reality is “A”. And anything else which is what doesn’t exist is “-A”, that which the universe is not. So the universe and reality at large is constantly in the process of separating that which it is from that which it is not. And that is what a tautology is and why they are so important and why the CTMU emphasizes tautologies so much. The main idea is that its tautologies as to how you get to the bottom of logic. They are absolute. There is no deviating from them. they are the fundamental rules of thinking, logic and knowing itself. From meeting Chris in person I’ll explain that God choose tautologies to define himself with. Its tautologies that are the fundamental structure of reality and God used them to identify with. And since God is omnipresent then he is identifying himself by these everywhere through everything. The complicated part can be in terms of theological knowledge is that God can intermix and combine them in ways we don’t always understand. So even God is limited by tautologies as well. But God can do anything with them at the same time. I’ll make a future post about the complexities of them and how they can be further used to solve problems and make scientific discoveries/predictions and where they become complicated. Basically that comes down to trying to decode tautologies in many valued systems and higher densities of information per event and the more there is to consider at once. But nonetheless its tautologies that are the beginning principle in absolute truth and that’s exactly what they represent. So in tautologies lies the answers to all mysteries and unknowns. This is one way in which the CTMU is eternal and applies to everything. Because by existence everything is tautological. And all of the further logical extensions add on to tautologies with more advanced forms of logic but always have tautologies as their foundation and then just get more complex. And that’s what is meant in the CTMU by logical extension. And this is also a precursor to proving free will because either we have it or we don’t.
So either the long historic God debate ends as there is or isn’t a God can’t be neither or both. Any proposition or predicate of an object is a tautology. either its true corresponding to real or false and it doesn’t exist but not both. So A or -A. Now this means all it takes is one time to prove God and the debate forever ends. If we then can use tautologies in a more complex way to prove God then we would know for certain and it would be certain because tautologies are certain. A tautology is the same as binary 1 or 0 yes or no logic. So “If we can base insight to God on binary logic then you’ve got it made”-Chris Langan. And essentially proving God with tatuologies is what is meant when he says that in the Errol Morris documentary. But of course there would be more to basing insight to God then just tautologies only, so one would have to build on tautologies with more advanced forms of logic. So then where do we go from here? Simple… In the next part I’ll explain the further steps in logic in calculating absolute truth that extend further off of tautologies which include, sentential logic, the process of attribution, predicate logic and model theory and then reality principles that apply to all of reality and further principles in the CTMU. For a bonus all include right here NINE scientific predictions that come out of the CTMU: 1.The accelerated expansion of the cosmos 2. Existence of the Plank Length 3. Quantum Uncertainty 4. Retro-causation 5. General Relativity 6. The finite and Fixed Speed of Light 7. Quantum Entanglement 8. Wave-Particle Duality 9. Quantum Observer. There’s far more than this but these can come right out of the 56 page paper and are notable ones to bring out right away. There are thousands of more scientific predictions contained in the CTMU that are “Quit Advanced” As Langan put it to me in person.
