An Epistemic Theory of Everything

Post by commonsense » Mon Nov 18, 2019 5:18 pm

:mrgreen:

Not everything is explainable. We don’t know what we don’t know about anything. There is no basis to the belief that we will eventually know all there is to know about a thing. However, knowing what everything is not brings us closer to a theory that explains it.

Not everything is tangible. Not everything accessible to one sense is accessible to another.

Not everything is expressible nor even thinkable. Everything includes undiscovered concepts for which there are no words as yet.

Insofar as definitions are tautological, everything is all that is and all that isn’t. Nothing is excluded from everything. Nothing is included in everything.

Where did everything come from? We don’t know. When did everything start? Likewise. Does everything have a purpose? Perhaps.

There is no practical theory of everything, epistemically or metaphysically, other than as stated here.

Is TOE envisioned as an actual (explanation) Theory of EVERY single thing, or just as a Theory Of (combining/linking/uniting) EVERY thing together - an all-encompassing theory?

For example, although there is NOT a discrepancy between general theory of relativity and quantum field theory some people see one, and think that there is a discrepancy. TOE, for example, is meant to encapsulate or solve this supposed discrepancy.

Coming up with or providing a theory of absolutely EVERY single thing seems a bit of far stretch beyond capabilities.

This is very good. I like what you are saying. Tell me more, like where did everything come from and when did everything start. You teased that you know but kept hidden what it is that you know.

I don’t know why I included the phrase, “other than as stated here.” Everything I said above led to the conclusion that there can be no TOE.

To recap, TOE is beyond all capabilities and beyond all possibilities.

I do this 'teasing' about what I know but keep "hidden" quite often, as can be evidenced throughout here in this forum. I do this because I am seeking those who are Truly curious, like "yourself" are here now. I write in a way to 'tease out' and find those who are Truly OPEN. I found that there is absolutely no use in talking to those who are Truly CLOSED, so it is those who are Truly OPEN that I am looking for.

'Everything', one word, did NOT come from anywhere. Everything is just HERE.
'Everything, one word, also did NOT start. Everything is NOW.

Everything is JUST, HERE-NOW. Always, and in all ways.

Everything is relative to the observer.

Do you already believe that there can be no TOE, and so 'you' are just looking for things, which could back up and support 'your' already held conclusion?

Could it have just been an error, revealing a sub or an un-concious knowing or feeling, why you included that phrase?

Everything you said above, which SUPPOSEDLY leads to a conclusion that there can be no TOE, is just because only ONE perspective is being looked at, and from.

Again, this all depends on how 'you' are defining TOE?

What does a 'Theory Of Everything' actually mean to 'you'?

To me, what exists can be summed up in two ways;

Every thing, and

Everything.

The sum of EVERY (single) thing equals (or is) Everything. Or, EVERY thing together, literally is; Everything.

'Every thing' combined together literally becomes 'Everything'.

EVERY (single) thing when looked at together or combined is Everything, or the Universe, Itself. So, to me, the Theory Of Everything is just a theory about how every thing works together or fits together as One encompassing thing, that is; thee Universe, Itself. To me, the Theory Of Every thing is NOT some theory about absolutely EVERY single thing, but just a theory about the One thing, known as, 'Everything' or thee 'Universe'.

Adding the two words 'Every' and 'thing' together literally gives you Everything, just like adding up every thing together gives you the equal sum of Everything.

Now, how Every thing works together to produce Everything, or thee Universe, Itself, is no big deal at all. In fact it is a very simple equation, which is also very easy to explain.

Adding 'Every' 'thing' together is equal to Everything.

Everything, as One, is just thee One, single, Universe, Itself. How every thing is created is just by thee Universe, Itself. There is NO other thing than the Universe, Itself. So, thee Creator of every single thing, including the single Universe, Itself, is thee Universe, Itself.

Now obviously absolutely every single thing is created from the coming together of at least two other things. There is NO one thing that can create itself, so how could the One Universe be Creating Itself, some may now be wondering? Well this is very easy to understand. The Universe, Itself, is made up fundamentally of two things;

Something, and

Nothing.

'Something' literally means 'some', or any, thing. The word 'some' means at least one of any group of thing up to but not including all of that group of things.

'Nothing' literally means 'no' thing.

Obviously what exists is some (physical) things, which have to be a distance apart from each other. What exists between those physical things is literally nothing or no things. So, the Universe is fundamentally made up of some thing and no thing. These two things coming together or co-existing with each other is HOW the Universe is continually Creating Its Self. These two things of something AND nothing have ALWAYS coexisted together.

Physical things without space or nothing between them nor around them could not freely move about. The continual interaction of physical things together is what creates continuous Energy. The action of physical things inter-acting with each other is what Creation, Itself, IS. EVERY action causes a reaction, and reaction is another action, itself, or just a re-action. This Reaction process is just Creation, Itself, ALWAYS in action.

Every interaction of physical things is an action, and every action, causes a re-action, which pre-determines what will happen. The space or nothing between ALL physical things, which allows all things to move about Freely, then leads on to how 'free-will' and 'determinism' BOTH play an EQUAL part in Life, or Existence, Itself. Through the process of elimination, every thing that is obviously created also obviously evolves. There is NO one thing, which is created, which just stops changing, or stops evolving. Evolution is nothing more than just change, itself. Through the process of 'Every action causes a Reaction', which is just Creation, Itself, which causes every thing to be Created, including how the thing 'Universe' is also Created, but through this process, every thing, including the Universe, is also changing, or evolving. So, just like 'free will' AND 'determinism' BOTH play an equal part in Existence so to does 'evolution' AND 'creation' BOTH play and EQUAL part in Existence, as well.

However, in saying this, as I said earlier, coming up with a theory of absolutely every single thing would appear to be very unlikely.

That’s a lot to absorb. I think I agree with all that you said, except I am unsure about the universe comprising everything and nothing.

As I am open about this, please explain how that works.

Earlier I indicated that the universe is everything and also everything that doesn’t exist. I’m not sure if what I said is the same concept as what you said. Do you think it is? Or else, what‘a the difference?

I have this trouble when communicating. I either do not say enough, to promote inquisitiveness, or I say way too much, not allowing what I am saying to be caught up with and understood. (There is a balance some where, which I hope I find sooner rather than later.) Anyway there is absolutely nothing complicated in what is to be said, it is just the wrong way I explain things that makes what I say only appear to be a lot to absorb.

Think of physics (or physical things) at the smaller quantum level (or even the larger cosmic level, if that helps).

Surrounding any particle of physical matter there has to be a distance of absolutely nothing, to the next particle of matter. The smallest particle of any piece of matter, obviously, HAS TO be separated from another particle/piece of matter. If they were not separated, then they would just be the EXACT SAME particle/piece of physical matter. To have separation, between or around physical things, then there NEEDS to be NO thing of physicality, or just otherwise known as 'nothing'.

Yes I see our concepts as being the SAME.

To me, the Universe IS Everything, which includes the completely empty distances between the smallest of particles of sub-atomic matter. This 'empty distance', in a sense, does NOT exist. Every 'thing' that does NOT exist is part of the Everything, which makes up thee Universe. So, the Universe is Everything, which includes the 'every thing' that does not exist, or just the 'empty space' between and surrounding actual physical things.

The word Everything has to also include the 'empty space', which obviously in and of itself could be said to be some thing OR no thing. Empty distance between objects has to exist but an empty distance is just comprised of no thing or nothing. 'Empty distance' is a thing, in and of itself, it is just a thing of nothing.

Besides that way of looking at this, the Universe is also Everything, in that Everything also includes what is imagined, but does not exist in physical form. Any thing that is imagined, but 'does not exist' in any other form is still a part of Everything.
