On More Fully Recognizing The Infinite
By Bruce Camber, Monday, August 21, 2017 Most recent update: August 22, 2017 Prior Homepage
Précis: Whenever we look up into a clear night sky, often someone will say, “It goes on forever.” As children we learned to accept the infinitude of space and time. It is deeply ingrained within our thought structures. The problem is that this perception is not quite right.
History. Alchemist Isaac Newton was an experimenter and he made mistakes. He used trial and error. When he described space and time, he was off the mark. Though a genius, he was not divine. And, unfortunately he was often arrogant and condescending. Though right about many things, he was often only partially right. Perhaps his penultimate contribution to our universe of knowledge is his sense of space-time and the infinite. These lasting imprints, however, were only partially right.
Lucasian Professor at Cambridge University (1669). Wikipedia summarizes: “He was a devout but unorthodox Christian, who privately rejected the doctrine of the Trinity and who, unusually for a member of the Cambridge faculty of the day, refused to take holy orders in the Church of England.”
Infinity: Newton was confused about the nature of infinity. And, his confusion became our confusion; and, it has become the confusion of the world’s people. Infinity to this day remains a problem because it is too often interlaced with theological and religious language. The God wars between the arrogant among religious thinkers have caused much of the intellectual community to avoid religious language. A possible resolution to that conundrum is to use only terms that originate in mathematics and science to describe the infinite.
Three Faces of Infinity. Though most of these studies on this website are of the finite, the infinite has a substantial, abiding and fundamental role. The infinite describes a never-ending, never-repeating perfection or completeness or a wholeness that is not fundamentally part of the finite. Within these studies the infinite is defined as continuity, that which creates order, sequences, and the nature of time. The infinite is symmetry, that which creates the foundations of relations, of balance and of the nature of space. And, the infinite is defined as harmony, that which creates dynamics, and creates a space-time moment. The use of religious or theological language is left to each reader.
These are three simple postulations about form and function, yet all three assume a panoply of necessary-and-abiding transformations. When we look into the clear night sky, we can “see” only as far as today’s transformations within this expanding universe.
Set within the 202 base-2 notations from the Planck base units to this current moment, the Now, it challenges us to see how the entire universe is bound together within what is initially a most-simple mathematical and geometrical system that profoundly redefines space-and-time and our relation to the universe. In 2011 the first name of the project was “Big Board – little universe.” Those 202 steps, all active, make for a rather intimate place.
The continuity-symmetry-harmony concepts were first written down in 1972 to define the three faces of a perfected state in space-and-time. Each seemed to hold plausible answers to deeper questions about life and such practical things as superconductors, quantum fluctuations, heartbeats, sleep, consciousness, reproduction… but the articulation of those facets of the transformations was too weak and generalized. There was no systemic application or coherence until it was discovered that the entire universe is contained within those 202 base-2 notations. So profoundly and deeply integrated, this chart gave us our first introduction to the first 67 notations that provide the footings to explain the homogeneity and isotropy of the universe.
This project opens a new exploration. Certainly it re-awakens the finite-infinite relation. And, it thrusts enormous responsibility on each of us for our every thought, word and deed because it shows us how everything we do impacts this little universe.
