NB: compared to issue 20201210 the chapter 4_Idoneity was significantly rewritten.
In this article, we will try to illustrate how, according to the Ontology of Knowledge (OK), reality appears to the subject in the form of objects « in becoming » in a four-dimensional space whose time of the subject (his becoming) would be a privileged dimension.
For the OK, reality is formless and takes shape in the subject's existence. The shape of the world results from the Logos, a transcendent principle by which the complexity of logical interdependence, the amorphous "substance" of reality, is metastablely and necessarily aggregated into singularities bounded by cuts, making it appear to the subject as a structured meaning.
As an introduction, a first chapter will lead us from pure coincidence to the space of possibles and appearence of the form.
The process will then include four steps:
- with Husserl: from proper and improper to multiplicities
- with Poincaré: from isomorphism to morphogenesis,
from understanding to the subject's perspective
the fusion of Acting, Giving-Sense and Becoming
- with Russel and Poincaré: Quantity, divisibility, continuity, cut
- with Hahn and Gonseth:
the idoneity of four-dimensional space-time
the subject as one of the possible meanings of reality
The aim is not to reconstruct a two-century history of the notion of space-time, nor to "show false" the analysis of these authors. We only want to use their concepts to illustrate the OK, both by evoking similarities and differences.
NB: Rather than proposing one more analysis of the authors in question, we will quote (sometimes by large excerpts) modern articles that seem clear and adapted to the subject.
Of course, we will give credit to the authors.
