I have had two strong ‘ideas’ I have been developing over the last year. Ideas, questions and potential solutions to a problem I saw in our current culture.
- I saw that our lack of a religion and abandonment of Christian values represented potential destruction of western culture.
- That our world has deviated from not only this Christian value structure but on a deeper level we live out of accordance with an a theory of mine called ‘Invisible law’. To rectify this we must strive towards, using another theory of ‘mine’ Conscious design, to have lives that result in the ultimate goal, to ease all human caused suffering.
No I wont go into these principals, or theories as im still defining and designing them, you can see them unfold in my Video Blogs….
But what is strange about this is that someone has though of essentially these things before. None other than Friedrich Nietzsche.. So to my surprise on finding his books and researching more online, he professed very similar things.
This raised some questions
- What exactly does this mean that this has already been thought?
- Is it just a part of normal human existence to think these thoughts?
- We all have personal attachment to things we think, maybe mine is thinking I had an original idea?
Jordan Peterson describes His intelligence as ‘Bloody terrifying”… so!
Without any formal education ( Dropped out of school at 14) and never having read or heard about any of these ideas that I can clearly recall. What does this mean that I independently come up with almost identical ideas, and design systems of causation and solutions….. Im not totally sure, and as I developed them in what I can only describe as a vacuum, I can not ask anyone how I developed them.
So from this I have developed some propositions and potential conclusions to this.
- Common knowledge: Everybody thinks like this. These ideas are readily thought by many people, and it is not discussed as we all take them as common knowledge.
- Implied knowledge: Because these are famous ideas, any intellectuals I would have heard talk, would have conveyed to me the ideas through implication, although not implicitly.
- Foregone conclusion: These ideas would, given deep enough thought, would have become a forgone conclusion to anyone observant and diligence with outcomes and causes of obvious streams evidence.
- Common knowledge conclusion; If this was common knowledge then more people would be doing things to fix it, then i would not see it as a problem, as it is being solved actively.
- Implied Knowledge conclusion; Im listening to the right people, and I am observing what they are saying very well. Enough so, that even ideas the do not explicitly mention in details are absorbed by me, like osmosis
- Forgone conclusion, conclusion: That given the mathematical contingencies of te way the culture interacts with the environment, these are logical conclusions, an therefore my formulas must be correct. And now I can apply these, correct and calibrated formulas, to other now potentially new topics.
