Metaphysics of Evolution

What is Evolving? The Metaphysics of Space and Motion & the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) explains the Metaphysical Foundations of Darwinian / Cultural Evolution

Charles Darwin: EvolutionAlthough I am fully convinced of the truth of the views given in this volume I by no means expect to convince experienced naturalists whose minds are stocked with a multitude of facts all viewed, during a long course of years, from a point of view directly opposite to mine. But I look with confidence to the future to young and rising naturalists, who will be able to view both sides of the question with impartiality. (Charles Darwin)

Thomas Huxley: EvolutionThe different branches of science combine to demonstrate that the universe in its entirety can be regarded as one gigantic process, a process of becoming, of attaining new levels of existence and organization, which can properly be called a genesis or an evolution. (Thomas Huxley)

Robin Cooper (Ratnaprabha): The Evolving MindToday, then, evolution is a term that is not restricted to biology. Ideas are said to evolve, as well as nations, technologies, indeed anything that changes. When used in a considered way and not merely as a cliche, however, the idea of evolution connotes more than change. It implies a process which, as in biology, is uninterrupted and causal, and which appears to follow an overall trend. (Robin Cooper, The Evolving Mind)

Introduction to the Metaphysics of Evolution

Using reason from Evolutionary Philosophy to demonstrate that Space and Motion (Matter existing as the Spherical Wave Motion of Space) must first Exist for Evolution to Exist. i.e. The Earth spins and orbits the Sun causing Animal Evolution of Hibernation, Sleep, etc. which requires both Space and Motion to first exist.

Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution is correct in the limited sense of life (plants, animals, fungi, etc.) but it exists without Metaphysical foundations. The Theory of Evolution does not explain what life is, how life exists as matter in Space, how life interacts with other life and matter at a distance in Space throughout the Universe, how life reproduces, and how this caused life to evolve and adapt.
Only True Knowledge of Reality can provide this metaphysical foundation for Darwin's Theory of Evolution. (This is of course also true of our Cultural Evolution of Knowledge and Beliefs).
Most significantly to humanity, as Wisdom is founded on Truth, until we know this Reality of What Exists, and thus what it truly means to be 'Human' it is impossible for humanity to be wise. And this wisdom is necessary if we are to successfully evolve both Life and Knowledge / Culture that enables us to live in harmony with Nature and the Cosmos (and thus continue to survive in a universe that is both brutal and beautiful).
And so we realise that there is this profound problem for Evolution (and physics, philosophy, metaphysics, theology and humanity) to understand what is Evolving, what is Matter, what is Reality such that we may know what is Truth, what is Wisdom.
This longstanding and most fundamental problem can now be solved with Logic from Evolution (Evolutionary Philosophy).

Darwinian Evolution tells us that Evolution must have existed before Humans evolved / existed. Thus there was a time before humans existed when the human mind did not exist. Nonetheless, despite this absence of Mind, evolutionary reasoning still requires that our ancestors (Primates, Protomammals) physically existed for us to evolve from them (to evolve arms and legs, eyes and ears, etc.). Thus life on earth existed before our ideas of life on earth
We can demonstrate the truth of this using the Motion of the Earth as it orbits the Sun, and how this would necessarily affect the evolution of life on Earth. Due to the Earth's daily spin, Animal life has consequently evolved daily behaviours. This is clearly confirmed by many evolutionary adaptations and behaviours, e.g. Animals sleeping, nocturnal hunting (and large eyes, ears), photosynthesis of plants. Likewise migration of birds and hibernation of bears are two of many obvious seasonal adaptations and behaviours that are caused by the yearly orbit of the Earth about the Sun.

Thus evolution deduces that the Earth does in fact exist, spin, and orbit the Sun. Now most people would think that this is pretty obvious, (we sleep every night because the earth spins as it orbits the sun - Galileo is famous for proving the motion of the Earth with his telescope and mathematical logic).
Remarkably, modern philosophy now believes that the motion of the Earth about the Sun is merely an idea, a human construction / representation, and we can never know what in Reality exists (i.e. Kantian Idealism).
Yet Evolutionary Philosophy deduces that the earth physically existed and moved before we existed and had ideas of its motion and thus clearly contradicts Idealism. In fact reason from Evolution enables us to move beyond Idealism to the Realism of what must have first existed for us to have evolved to exist. We know that the Earth must move and thus both Space and Motion must necessarily exist (a priori) for the Earth to move ( as we have clearly shown that the Earth spins as it orbits the Sun causing plants and animals to evolve certain adaptations, and in more general terms it is a fact that animals have evolved the ability to move themselves which likewise necessarily requires the existence of Space and Motion.

This Evolutionary Logic, of deducing what must have existed before human animals / minds existed, provides the necessary foundations for all human knowledge. This Reality of 'What Exists' can now be sensibly explained with the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter.

Help Humanity

"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.

We have a wonderful collection of knowledge from the greatest minds in human history, so people will appreciate your contributions. In doing this you will help a new generation of scientists see that there is a simple sensible explanation of physical reality - the source of truth and wisdom, the only cure for the madness of man! Thanks! Geoff Haselhurst (Updated September, 2018)

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. (Max Planck, 1920)
