    Truth


    It is likely that over the past ten years we have exchanged more information than in the totality of prior human existence. In that time, we have become rather adept at keeping track of data points, but not the connections and exchanges among them.

    We can easily and accurately comprehend locations, times, basic statistics, countless measures and recordings of data points, and track what people say and do – the abc’s of our daily lives.

    But everything else, everything important, the systemic workings that define our lives and our world, what we call the xYz’s, are composed of complexities and dimensions, the hows and whys, that defy simple truths and single data points.

    At Y Worlds we would like to define Truth semiotically as the integration of 3 principles:

    The pursuit of Truth requires a systemic and semiotic frame of reference. Our NETS model includes both Truth and Systems constructs. They are not mutually exclusive, they are symbiotic – one cannot thrive without the other.

    Humans have constructed a loose patchwork of provisional knowledge in an attempt to explain everything from how the universe functions to the workings of the human centric world. The patchwork encompassing us is seldom systemic, seldom well documented and seldom set in context.

    We believe this patchwork would benefit from a formal Proof Process that stands behind any assertion or assumption. We believe we should adopt a small number of systemic frameworks that will help us process complexity- Y Worlds Models. We believe there needs to be an open source browser based multimedia engine to drive a new semiotic language that can help us handle complexity. And we believe we need to filter our sources of knowledge toward those who are committed to understanding and who acknowledge thoughtful remodeling.

    Agree, there is no absolute truth, as absolutes are unobtainable.

    How about this?

    At any given time in history, science was only so far advanced and sometimes violently denied the findings of advanced thinkers - only to come back later to the exact same point - to prove now the truth of what was previously denied.

    B. Nurnberger (1996)

    What a great quote.
    We know very little about the root foundation of what is.
    We attempt to describe the workings, find patterns and laws of understanding, delve as deeply as we are able into the mechanics of matter and energy and exchange.
    And we humans understand that we have limitations on our capacity to take it all in and put it all together.
    I am certain that there is so much more to learn. That is all that I am certain of.
