Re: What is the structure of uncertainty?

I still don't understand uncertainty. It is blowing my mind how hard it is to wrap my head about it. I'd love for you all to try some more.

The concept of uncertainty as probability - I don't think that works. Probability is probability, uncertainty is uncertainty.

Rules and Concepts in the Science and Philosophy of Needs

I've started writing a literary work on my ideas which so far has produced 5 complete short question-based texts and 1 in the process of completion. I'd love to hear some input, the texts can be found here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=331675FE188EC576!6975&authkey=!AMAw8JiOk2kC9Vg&ithint=f...

What is the structure of uncertainty?

What is the structure of uncertainty?

How can we model it? How do we divide it up? How do we understand it as a thing in and of itself?

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

Is part of your method like a TOTE system? That is Test Operate Test Exit, that is, once you have a need identified you have a set of criteria to say when it is satisfied, so you test, if not satisfied you do some operations that you think(hope) will bring you closer to satisfying the need, test ag...

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

What I asked you was for an example of how you've used this 'law' and principle and 'Science' in an actual situation in your life? I have never done that because I wouldn't get anything from doing it, I don't have the capacity to gather enough information. ... why it all can't be solved by just ask...

Re: Rationalism & Empiricism

Rationalism is a philosophy that propounds that humans have innate knowledge and concepts that come from the mind... This is not the rationalism I've learned. Being a rationalist does not mean you have to believe in innate knowledge . The rationalist movement was about the mind eventually being sup...

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

Okay, I'm gonna explain it in one sentence: The science of needs studies whether, how and where something exists in time with certain properties, and the conditions for how to make it continue or stop doing it. Okay, give me a simple example of this in action. But that's just the scientific part, t...

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

How without examples? So far your stuff is pretty impenetrable, now that might be my fault but I think if you know what you are talking about then you should at least be able to explain it in slightly simpler terms. Okay, I'm gonna explain it in one sentence: The science of needs studies whether, h...

Of course I can.

Hey, I do appreciate you challenging me, but a sentence like that is just unreasonable. You are being very edge, it feels more and more personal instead of objective.

I haven't done that, yet, because the examples of everyday life are to boring for it to be used on those, ... Not if you want it to be an 'ology' they're not.

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

So "Opusology", if it actually IS a word, suggests a study of works or collections of artists (usually musicians). How did you possibly get "need" from this? I invented the word so that I have something to refer to. Opus is latin and means "need" through the sentence "opus est" (it is needful, want...

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

I'm not making myself understood. Please can you give me a concrete example of where you have applied your opusology to a real world situation, preferably one where you had needs and you used your opusology to assess and achieve them. I haven't done that, yet, because the examples of everyday life ...

Re: A law and a principle in the Science of Needs

I've asked you before VoT but can you give a concrete example of your Opusology in action It's a work in progress, so I may change my phrasing and wording as I discover deeper and deeper truths about needs. To be sure, I'm not the same person as two years ago. But a concrete example is anything rea...
