ll question stems from seven basic interrogatives.
They are who, what, when, where, how, why and which. They in turn form
the basis for our inquiry into the nature of truth.
As the less noble side of fate would have it, common
place answers to basic questions vary considerably. This is
because variations in experience establish priority within everyone
differently. This has resulted in a human history riddled with
confusion and controversy. Until Einstein popularized relative thinking, the world
was divided into two main camps of though regarding the 'certainty' of
truth. Plato is best know for framing one, Aristotle the other.
To paraphrase: Plato believed that all answers to foundational
questions were logically constrained by an overarching principle that
manifested itself in the form of unity. This allegiance to
singularity caused him to be known as an
idealist. Conversely, Aristotle believed that
the evidence surrounding the search for it, provided a
closer approximation of truth. This affinity for multiplicity caused
him to be known as a realist or practicalist. To this day, the
value of these two approaches remains in contention.
The reason for this enduring conflict is
idea, except for
'certainty,' is naturally duplicitous. This means that it depends upon an
opposing idea for its qualification. Hence "good" only assumes to meaning
(for us) because
there is "evil," just as up only has meaning (for us) because there is a
down, etc. We call
this interdependency upon opposites dichotomy.
And, since both ideas are inseparable from one another -- in
order for either to be known -- determining their priority
initially fell to specific case and situation.
However, this left a lot of latitude by which to qualify
anything, and that wound up yielding a complexity that is currently obscuring the
fundamental interlinked nature
Enter 'certainty.' By
establishing the structure within thought by which opposing ideas
achieve relevance, it provides a way to circumvent the controversy over
priority within dichotomy inherent to conclusions -- and hence, the resultant complexity it has
spawned. This also establishes 'certainty' as the ideal or standard
by which to understand everything else -- including who and what we are
and how we've come to be. Additionally, it logically fixes the
undeniable responsibility that each person has to the potential that we
mutually share with one another and life itself.
Why is all this important?
It's important, because nothing less than the realization of a
common origin and attendant purpose can ever bring resolution to
otherwise irresolvable conflict. Anything less compelling can
only be temporary, self serving, and overtly contentious.
However, in spite of its long recognized importance, the
"form" of ‘certainty‘
has continued to elude discovery down through the ages. As
confounding as all this might seem, the reason is actually quite simple.
It is because the nature of ‘certainty’ appears to run counter to the language by which we assume to meaning for ourselves. Language is temporally constrained while
'certainty' by definition
is not. This is because it characterizes the dynamics by which
linear thought finds application for us, not the conclusions that we are
able to reach by way of it. Hence, we are
predisposed to discard the possibility inherent to 'certainty' in favor of retaining continuity
within the language by which
we confirm our own existence. Missing from this equation has been the
understanding of how to respectfully combine the two. Fortunately, this is now possible.
In the following material you will
be introduced to what many feel is the most important logical construct
ever isolated from the field of human knowing. Why would anyone
pay such homage to an idea? Because, by yielding the nature of
truth, ‘certainty' establishes the terms by which we can justifiably
judge and thereafter expect to be judged by whatever intellect has cause
to do so. Hence, it introduces undeniable responsibility into the
human equation. It does this, even as it confirms the necessity for acceptance of an all
encompassing intellect which cannot be denied without invoking self
denial. In other words, with the delineation of 'certainty' comes the
world's first logical (albeit generic) proof for what mankind generally refers to as Deity
or God. It is these understandings that
touch the human soul at its very foundation, thus making them essential to the
construction of a successful global peace initiative.
Given the enormous amount of effort that has gone into authenticating
the form of 'certainty' which you will consider later in this work, it is fair to say that a stronger case has
never been made for any other idea throughout the history of mankind. (see
Due to the absence of 'certainty,' mankind has collected into competing power
structures intent upon preserving delusional ideas about the importance of
one's self. Entwined with political, religious,
economic and ideological divisions, this has allowed the threat from
‘critical issues’ to continue to grow
unabated. With science and
technology providing the wherewithal, we now have a situation where societies can escalate
localized conflict to global proportion with weapons of mass destruction. This in turn puts all sentient life on Earth
at direct risk. Without a self imposing vision capable of overcoming the
importance of existing division, it is now obvious that mankind has no viable future on this planet.
