Quantity and Quality

Post by Eodnhoj7 »

The force behind being is simply form, with this form being a continuum we call quality where any and all truth is irrational until it is divided into parts through the act of quantification where a phenomenon is made finite.

The continuum, as quality, can be observed in the example of color. In observing the quality of red what we observe is a continuum of multiple reds which exist through it. In another example, observing the quality of a horse is to observe a series of forms and actions which exist as a continuum through the phenomenon. Quality is a continuum.

Quantity is the limit of the continuum where a beginning and end point is observed in the quality thus making it finite. This finiteness allows for a distinction between one phenomenon and another through an individuation of said phenonemenon.

Different minds can observe the same thing simultaneously and yet have different subjective opinions with regard to its quality
No two will think exactly the same all of the time and so there is no universal standard for determining what quality actually is

Yet the different observations are grounded in a continuum considering what does continue is divergent opinions. In these respects observation is grounded in a qualitative approach considering the same aspect of divergence, or convergence, exists through a continuum. The manifestation of finite opinions is a manifestation of quantity through quality. Dually quality through quantity occurs given each manifestation of a limit is the manifestation of a new opinion. In observing the quality of a horse a quantity of horses are observed, this quantity results in seperate horses as seperate continuums of phenomenon occuring. Quantity occurs through quality and quality through quantity, both revolve around the center point of what is being observed.

I find it most useful to apply a quality to the quantity.

For example: too much or too little.

Of course, such usefulness is often highly devalued if we must all aspire to be goth (i.e. Master Morality).

You might say, one good turn deserves another, or, you scratch my back; I'll scratch yours.

But then again, who would want to actually give back a turn.

Who would actually want something that works so well? A selfish person? :roll:

"Quality" is the first level of separation of the whole. "Quantity" is the second level, which allows for the manipulation (technology) of the physical realm.

Both are constructs of thought and therefore illusory.

Quantity is an attribute. Quality is a distinct attribute.

Therefore quantity is a quality; but quantity is not quality.
