Essay Abstract

On solely mathematical principle 1 establishes the universally valid system. Its simplicity shows that local constants in contemporary physics are, like the epicycles in Ptolemy’s model of the universe, paradigmatic obstacles on 1’s way of understanding the mathematical truth and fundamental simplicity of 1’s world. 1 shows that all universal equations of motion can be derived from, and therefore are deducible to the fundamental description of equity; 1=1. 1 decodes a symphony of harmonic ratios composing nature.

Andrej - I enjoyed reading your essay. Metaphysically, we start at almost the same place -the separation of one from nothing. But we take a different path.

Andrej,

I find two important central themes and ideas in your essay; that "two infinite polarities emerge", and that it "decodes a symphony of harmonic ratio's composing nature". On the basis of those alone I feel your essay certainly shouldn't be at the bottom!

One point on your 'multiple reflections' comment. Strictly reflections are neither instant or infinite. As all is in motion', we find the images evolve at the speed of light. Also there is a physical limit to the number of reflections possible as each has an inherent loss of coherence and energy. This is only about 7! However your point is still mainly correct as some form of energy seems to reduces recursively beyond detectable levels. I've rationalized that fractal sequence and hope it emerges in my essay, though not the main topic which reveals the solution to a 'con trick' hidden in maths. I note you're not engaging here, but hope you do, and read my essay.

I feel a little guilty pushing the previous bottom essay up to leave you bottom, so my fair score should do the same for yours. I hope others also see the points of value.

Best wishes.

Peter
