For me (which is a plug for Plato BTW), is to reconcile (not rationalize) an ideal into its perfect forme and that perfect forme is the one that considers the totality of inductive reasoning.

The Phantom of Time and Trigonometry

IInspired by Pierre-Simon Laplace’s quote, “Man follows only phantoms”. The titled responsion is referring to the metaphysics of time and trigonometry.

Why metaphysics you may ask? The reason is simple. The imagined “perception” that began in the minds of men has been finely tuned (by humanity) to a quantum clock and wonders of the world. Is there such a thing as a perception of time or the ideal of the triangle? Plato’s idea is exactly that. What we do with it, so to speak, is the important next move. For-me (which is a plug for Plato BTW), is to reconcile (not rationalize) an ideal into its perfect forme and that perfect forme is the one that considers the totality of inductive reasoning. This is not a full end stop but it gives the “doctrine” of Plato a forward-moving function with I think “transcends” (I use that term with my tongue in my cheek) doctrines, dogma, and ideological dismissals.

Where does deductive reasoning come in?

If this were a closed system then deductive reasoning is part of the creative wellspring and indicated in increments of wonder via the watchwords; what if?

Imagining the possibilities, counterfactuals if you will, is a uniquely human precept. The extent to which we project our regulative and predictive thought into the future gives us a unique advantage to the detrimental effects of risk. This ability to manage risk is something that I refer to when I examined the male/female dichotomy in No More Conquistadors — The Movement Towards the Femalist (2021).
