Absolute Truth from Absolute Space

Sir Isaac Newton - Absolute Truth from Absolute Space - Absolute Space, in its own nature, without regard to any thing external, remains always similar and immovable. (Newton)Plato - Absolute Truth from Absolute Space - And isn't it a bad thing to be deceived about the truth, and a good thing to know what the truth is? For I assume that by knowing the truth you mean knowing things as they really are. (Plato)

Absolute Truth comes from Necessary Connection of One Thing, Absolute Space,
which exists as a Wave Medium for Spherical Standing Waves (Matter)

Quotations from Famous Scientists on Absolute Truth, Absolute Space

On the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter

(Aristotle, 340BC) Metaphysics is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. (Aristotle, 340BC) The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is just as that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which, just as a thing that is, it has. ... That among entities there must be some cause which moves and combines things. ... There must then be a principle of such a kind that its substance is activity. (Aristotle, Metaphysics)

Leibniz Reality One Substance Monad  Principles - I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either <em>a priori</em> by conceiving its cause or reason, or <em>a posteriori</em> when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature.(Gottfried Leibniz, 1670) It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature. ...
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity. ... I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial, cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general.

Bradley. On Metaphysics. (Bradley, 1846-1924) We may agree, perhaps, to understand by Metaphysics an attempt to know reality as against mere appearance, or the study of first principles or ultimate truths, or again the effort to comprehend the universe, not simply piecemeal or by fragments, but somehow as a whole. (Bradley)

(Albert Einstein, 1928, Leiden) According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time.Physics constitutes a logical system of thought which is in a state of evolution, whose basis (principles) cannot be distilled, as it were, from experience by an inductive method, but can only be arrived at by free invention. The justification (truth content) of the system rests in the verification of the derived propositions (a priori/logical truths) by sense experiences (a posteriori/empirical truths). ... Evolution is proceeding in the direction of increasing simplicity of the logical basis (principles). .. We must always be ready to change these notions - that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics - in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way logically. (Albert Einstein, Physics and Reality, 1936)


Introduction to Physics and the Wave Structure of Matter

On Absolute Space (Aether, Ether, Akasa) and its Properties as an Infinite Eternal Continuous Wave Medium

Having recognised that the individual points in Newton's absolute space have no physical reality, we must now inquire what remains of this concept at all. (Max Born)

Contrary to current views, the greatest scientists (physicists, philosophers) of history believed that Space must exist to necessarily connect matter and its interconnected motions. Below are a few of many famous quotes from famous scientists on the existence of Space (as required by the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter). And the page on the Dynamic Unity of Reality is short with a good collection of famous quotes which confirm the importance of both absolute truth and absolute Space).

Newton  - Absolute Space in its own nature, without relation to anything external remains always similar and immovable.(Newton, 1687) Absolute Space, in its own nature, without regard to any thing external, remains always similar and immovable. ... Relative Space is some moveable dimension or measure of the absolute spaces; which our senses determine, by its position to bodies; and which is vulgarly taken for immovable space... And so instead of absolute places and motions, we use relative ones; and that without any inconvenience in common affairs; but in Philosophical disquisitions, we ought to abstract from our senses, and consider things themselves, distinct from what are only sensible measures of them. For it may be that there is no body really at rest, to which the places and motions of others may be referred ... (Sir Isaac Newton)

(Kant, 1781) Natural science (physics) contains in itself synthetical judgments <em>a priori</em>, as principles. … Space then is a necessary representation <em>a priori</em>, which serves for the foundation of all external intuitions.(Kant, 1781) Natural science (physics) contains in itself synthetical judgments a priori, as principles. … Space then is a necessary representation a priori, which serves for the foundation of all external intuitions.

 

(Faraday, 1830) I cannot conceive curved lines of force without the conditions of a physical existence in that intermediate space. (Faraday, 1830) I cannot conceive curved lines of force without the conditions of a physical existence in that intermediate space.

 

(James Clerk Maxwell, 1876)  In speaking of the Energy of the field, however, I wish to be understood literally. All energy is the same as mechanical energy, whether it exists in the form of motion or in that of elasticity, or in any other form. The energy in electromagnetic phenomena is mechanical energy.

All energy is the same as mechanical energy, whether it exists in the form of motion or in that of elasticity, or in any other form. The energy in electromagnetic phenomena is mechanical energy.

Lorentz, 1906) I cannot but regard the ether, which can be the seat of an electromagnetic field with its energy and its vibrations, as endowed with a certain degree of substantiality, however different it may be from all ordinary matter.(Lorentz, 1906) I cannot but regard the ether, which can be the seat of an electromagnetic field with its energy and its vibrations, as endowed with a certain degree of substantiality, however different it may be from all ordinary matter.

 

(Brentano, 1838-1916) A three-dimensional (spatial) world is infinitely more likely than any of its alternatives.(Brentano, 1838-1916) A three-dimensional (spatial) world is infinitely more likely than any of its alternatives.

 


(Albert Einstein, 1928, Leiden) According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time. But this ether may not be thought of as endowed with the quality characteristic of matter, as consisting of parts (‘particles’) which may be tracked through time. The idea of motion may not be applied to it.

The idea of motion may not be applied to it. ...
The inseparability of time and space emerged in connection with electrodynamics, or the law of propagation of light.
With the discovery of the relativity of simultaneity, space and time were merged in a single continuum in a way similar to that in which the three dimensions of space had previously merged into a single continuum. Physical space was thus extended to a four dimensional space which also included the dimension of time. The four dimensional space of the special theory of relativity is just as rigid and absolute as Newton's space. (Albert Einstein, 1954)

(Lama Govinda, 1969)  According to ancient Indian tradition the Universe reveals itself in two fundamental properties: as Motion and as that in which motion takes place, namely Space. This Space is called akasa and is that through which things step into visible appearance, i.e., through which they possess extension or corporeality. Akasa is derived from the root kas,  to radiate, to shine’,  and has therefore the meaning of ‘ether’ which is conceived as the medium of movement.(Lama Govinda, 1969) According to ancient Indian tradition the Universe reveals itself in two fundamental properties: as Motion and as that in which motion takes place, namely Space. This Space is called akasa and is that through which things step into visible appearance, i.e., through which they possess extension or corporeality. Akasa is derived from the root kas, ‘to radiate, to shine’,
and has therefore the meaning of ‘ether’ which is conceived as the medium of movement.
The principle of movement, however, is Prana the breath of life, the all-powerful, all-pervading rhythm of the universe.
The fundamental element of the cosmos is Space. Space is the all-embracing principle of higher unity. Nothing can exist without Space.

(Sudhakar S.D 1988) The Universe is Brahman, the One that underlies and make possible all the multiplicity. It is the source of the entire cosmos and all cosmic activities relating to the emergence, existence and dissolution of the terrestrial phenomena that form the cosmic rhythm. ‘The One manifests as the many, the formless putting on forms.’(Rig Veda)
The Maitri Upanishad mentions two aspects of Brahman, the higher and the lower. The higher Brahman being the unmanifest Supreme Reality which is soundless and totally quiescent and restful, the lower being the Shabda-Brahman which manifests itself into the ever changing restless cosmos through the medium of sound vibrations.
The Upanishad says that, 'Two Brahmans there are to be known: One as sound and the other as Brahman Supreme.'
The process of manifestation is from soundless to sound, from noumenality to phenomenality, from perfect quiescence of being to the restlessness of becoming'. Manifestation of the ultimate reality takes place through the vibrations of Shabda-Brahman, for vibration is the expression of energy and the action and interaction of vibrations produce all the phenomena on many different planes.

The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter is Simple (founded on ONE thing Space) and Necessarily Connected, this being the necessary foundation for all reason, truth and certainty in the Sciences (i.e. not my opinion). The Wave Motion of Space (and thus the motion of matter) are logical because the Properties of Space as a Wave Medium are logical / necessary - this is why logic exists in the universe, and why Mathematics exists within Physics.

From this foundation of One thing Space existing we find the source of Matter's Necessary interconnection with other matter. Likewise, Truth must be necessary and thus also requires this necessary connection (see David Hume on Causation and Necessary Connection).
Postmodernism is founded on Relative Space (motion of matter is relative to other matter, not relative to absolute Space) and Relative Truth (truth is a cultural construction). The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter gives absolute Foundations to Western Scientific Language (from a Metaphysics of Space and Time to Space and wave Motion) and thus gives Absolute Truth to Human Knowledge, which is a most profound thing.

Below are a few philosophy quotes on Truth which are interesting - if you browse the links on the side of this page, you will find that there is a wealth of wonderful knowledge on truth and reality (the two most beautiful and profound subjects relating to human existence).
Hope you have fun browsing around!
Geoff Haselhurst

But for me, truth is the sovereign principle, which included numerous other principles. This truth is not only truthfulness in word, but truthfulness in thought also, and not only the relative truth of our conception, but the Absolute Truth, the Eternal Principle, that is God. There are innumerable definitions of God, because His manifestations are innumerable. They overwhelm me with wonder and awe and for a moment stun me. But I worship God as Truth only. I have not yet found Him, but I am seeking after Him. I am prepared to sacrifice the things dearest to me in pursuit of this quest. Even if the sacrifice demanded be my very life, I hope I may be prepared to give it. But as long as I have not realised this Absolute Truth, so long must I hold by the relative truth as I have conceived it. (Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi)

If I ask you why you believe any particular matter of fact, which you relate, you must tell me some reason; and this reason will be some other fact, connected with it. But as you cannot proceed after this manner, in infinitum, you must at last terminate in some fact, which is present to your memory or senses; or must allow that your belief is entirely without foundation. (David Hume, 1737)

And isn't it a bad thing to be deceived about the truth, and a good thing to know what the truth is?
For I assume that by knowing the truth you mean knowing things as they really are.
What is at issue is the conversion of the mind from the twilight of error to the truth, that climb up into the real world which we shall call true philosophy.
The object of knowledge is what exists and its function to know about reality.
The philosopher is in love with truth, that is, not with the changing world of sensation, which is the object of opinion, but with the unchanging reality which is the object of knowledge.
Truthfulness. He will never willingly tolerate an untruth, but will hate it as much as he loves truth... And is there anything more closely connected with wisdom than truth? (Plato)

There is nothing more Necessary than Truth, and in comparison with it everything else has only secondary value.
This absolute will to truth: what is it? Is it the will to not allow ourselves to be deceived? Is it the will not to deceive?
One does not want to be deceived, under the supposition that it is injurious, dangerous, or fatal to be deceived.
(Friedrich Nietzsche)

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
(Mohandas Gandhi)

Albert Einstein"When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. ... Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high. ...
The free, unhampered exchange of ideas and scientific conclusions is necessary for the sound development of science, as it is in all spheres of cultural life. ... We must not conceal from ourselves that no improvement in the present depressing situation is possible without a severe struggle; for the handful of those who are really determined to do something is minute in comparison with the mass of the lukewarm and the misguided. ...
Humanity is going to need a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive!" (Albert Einstein)


Biography: Geoffrey Haselhurst, Philosopher of Science, Theoretical Physics, Metaphysics, Evolution. Our world is in great trouble due to human behaviour founded on myths and customs that are causing the destruction of Nature and climate change. We can now deduce the most simple science theory of reality - the wave structure of matter in space. By understanding how we and everything around us are interconnected in Space we can then deduce solutions to the fundamental problems of human knowledge in physics, philosophy, metaphysics, theology, education, health, evolution and ecology, politics and society.

This is the profound new way of thinking that Einstein realised, that we exist as spatially extended structures of the universe - the discrete and separate body an illusion. This simply confirms the intuitions of the ancient philosophers and mystics.

Given the current censorship in physics / philosophy of science journals (based on the standard model of particle physics / big bang cosmology) the internet is the best hope for getting new knowledge known to the world. But that depends on you, the people who care about science and society, realise the importance of truth and reality.

It is easy to help - just click on the social network sites (below) or grab a nice image / quote you like and add it to your favourite blog, wiki or forum. We are listed as one of the top philosophy sites on the Internet (600,000 page views / week) and have a wonderful collection of knowledge from the greatest minds in human history, so people will appreciate your contributions.
