Essay Abstract

ABSTRACT For Science is a matter of Principle only. What makes a theory more fundamental is its closeness to our deepest explanations. A phenomenon (entity or process) is ‘fundamental’ if a sufficiently deep understanding of the Cosmos depends on understanding that phenomenon. And a deeper-understanding is one that has more generality. The most fundamental phenomena are implicated in the explanation of many phenomena, but are themselves explained only by a basic Principle. And how said Einstein 'the truly creative principle resides in Mathematics'. Here, we go to this fundamental Principle.

Yes the least understood sign in all equations is the equal "="/

Marcelo I absolutely LOVE your essay -- so many good points -- and I really like your "dreaminess" in the way you write. Each line give me so many ideas. I agree basically with all your many points -- I like how you present the idea of the mirror and that +i⁺¹ and -i⁻¹ "duality". I have rated it highly.

What is fundamental – is how we define the imaginary unit in maths. Recall the imaginary unit is defined by solving uniquely the equation x²+1= 0. That is, i is a unique (i.e. distinguishable) number defined as the square root of minus one, i.e., i ≡ +√-1. Since there are two possible square roots for any number +√ and –√, clearly the square roots of a negative number cannot be distinguished until one of the two is defined as the imaginary unit, at which point +i and -i can then be distinguished. Since either choice is possible, there is no ambiguity in defining i as "the" square root of minus one.

Your essay uses the same basis ideas has my essay What is fundamental is the area of the imaginary unit

I hope you have time to read my essay. Cheers Harri

Dear Marcelo Garcia Sanchez. Unified Field is a physical space, which, according to Descartes, is matter and at every point that the number is put under a Unified Law. This law can be the law of the constancy of the flow of forces through the surface of the sphere around this point. . Look at my page , FQXi Fundamental in New Cartesian Physics by Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich Where I showed how radically the physics can change if it follows the principle of identity of space and matter of Descartes. Evaluate and leave your comment there. I highly value your essay, however, I'll give you a rating after becoming acquainted with the Descartes' idea. Do not allow New Cartesian Physics go away into nothingness.

Sincerely, Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich.

Precisely the history of science shows that a fundamental understanding of the universe cannot be achieved by "only through a pure thinking".

i = sqrt(-1) implies i2 = 1, but the inverse is not true.

There is not anything special on i "referring to itself, is self-referential" on the expression i=-1/i. The same happens with any other expression as a=1/a or b =...

Dear Marcelo

If you are looking for another essay to read and rate in the final days of the contest, will you consider mine please? I read all essays from those who comment on my page, and if I cant rate an essay highly, then I don’t rate them at all. Infact I haven’t issued a rating lower that ten. So you have nothing to lose by having me read your essay, and everything to...
