    Default Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe

    For the full article, click The Theory of Theories.

    "How, then, can we ever form a true picture of reality? There may be a way. For example, we could begin with the premise that such a picture exists, if only as a “limit” of theorization (ignoring for now the matter of showing that such a limit exists). Then we could educe categorical relationships involving the logical properties of this limit to arrive at a description of reality in terms of reality itself. In other words, we could build a self-referential theory of reality whose variables represent reality itself, and whose relationships are logical tautologies. Then we could add an instructive twist. Since logic consists of the rules of thought, i.e. of mind, what we would really be doing is interpreting reality in a generic theory of mind based on logic. By definition, the result would be a cognitive-theoretic model of the universe." ~Chris Langan

    So how can we form a true picture of reality?

    Well, we approach reality in the same way we approach a mathematical Limit - we get closer and closer without reaching reality.

    Reality then must be boundless beyond measure and dynamic in its design, a very big and fluctuating place!

    Is this theoretical model of space is accepted by the other institutes.

    Reality beckons us on - just out of reach - tantalizing us - wanting to know what comes next.
