Thesis, antithesis and synthesis are noble principles
for learning and comprehending.
In Western thinking, analysis or dissection comes first.
Synthesis or wholeness is what we are striving for.
Synthetic are those operations that are building and augmenting: addition and multiplication.
Analytical are those that are reducing and diminishing:
subtraction and division,
creating fractions and negativity, roots and complexity.
Putting operations in 3D, means operating either above board
or below the x/y plane of z=0.
Perception and observation lead to abstraction and generalisation.
But the hardest of all are conceptualisation and universalisation:
to find concepts that reflect the greatest common denominator,
and formulate them such that they are true, universally.
To go deep enough to see universal truth,
to think long enough to know cosmic law,
may take meditative stillness
and focused concentration.
Over millennia, humanity has observed and abstracted,
generalised and universalised,
focused and concentrated.
It seems to take evolutionary ideas and synchronistic thoughts
to produce newness:
thinking in rhythm with the cosmos,
in the timing of the universe.
And it takes computers to help our thinking along:
as a reflective mirror,
a responsive drawing pad,
an interactive pencil
and a looking glass with a difference.
Abstraction in thought means finding higher levels of commonality:
the common multiples,
where ideas meet and come together.
In calculus, higher levels
are found through the process of integration,
with results of 0 and ¥.
In algebra, abstraction means generalisation.
Generalising means substituting numbers with n
where n can assume values from 0 to ±¥.
Constants are numbers, the bedrock of mathematics.
But 0 and 1 are more than constants.
0 and 1 are cause and effect,
law and principle,
builders of numbers,
architects of constants
motors of all movement.
Numbers have value (cm, pounds, £) and no value (0, 1, 2, 3).
Constant or variable, value and none.
In cosmos and nature, they are and they make happen by their very being.
Whether they are observed or not, valued or not, by humans and mathematicians.
Just as a brick has value by being in a wall,
numbers don’t need a price tag for existence.
Ownership does NOT give them their raison d’être.
They have value by being.
At the right time, in the right place: Zero as a centre of balance,
with the right distance to determine One as a unit for reference,
so that 0 and 1 create the God-given twin symmetry for completion.
2 is the higher level for 0 and 1: the first level of integration.
