Organization



The great discoveries of this century in mathematics, physics and psychology suggest a new synthesis with implications for mathematics, physics, politics and religion. That possibility is the subject of Chapter gif. The elaboration of this synthesis is the subject of this book.

By equating existence and consciousness we can apply pure mathematical results (including Gödel 's incompleteness theorem) to evolution. Of course, in one sense, there is nothing new here. Evolution is subject to the mathematical laws of physics. However it is not the structure of evolution that is the issue but the immediate experience of evolved creatures. Applying mathematics to this can allow us to get a new perspective on religious values and the creative process. That is the subject of Chapter gif.

The mathematics of creativity  and creating mathematics are the subjects of Chapter gif. Reinterpreting the mathematics of the completed infinite as the mathematics of creativity not only allows us to apply this mathematics in new important ways but may also provide the key to extending the logical foundations of mathematics. Appendix gif provides a minimal background for this chapter by briefly describing set theory, and giving a proof of Gödel 's incompleteness theorem. Appendix gif is a first attempt at laying the groundwork for extending mathematics in the way suggested in Chapter gif.

Chapter gif describes why I think Einstein will ultimately win the argument about God playing dice. Appendix gif is a description of a class of mathematical models that may give the victory to Einstein. Appendix gif provides a minimal background in physics needed to understand Chapter gif and Appendix gif.

In Chapter gif I relate mathematics to psychology through Jung's discovery of the archetypes and his ideas about how these relate to number.

If intuition is necessary to see beyond the existing conceptual frameworks in mathematics and physics then it is even more important to apply it to the enormous social problems we face. These cannot have the comparatively simple solutions available in mathematics and physics. Instead they require an ascendency of intuition 

throughout our culture. There is no formula for this but one important step is is to understand the issues. This is the topic of Chapter gif.

The shadow  of a thinking dominated culture is feeling  . The shadow nature of feeling is a major contributor to the problems we face. Intuition is important not simply as a problem solver but also as the mechanism through which we can develop and differentiate feeling. This is the concern of Chapter gif.

A first crude attempt at applying the mathematics of creativity to human institutions is the topic of Chapter gif.

Chapter gif touches again on religious implications and relates these to what may be a potentially infinite future.
