Spinbitz Volume I - Interface Philosophy, Mathematics, and Nondual-Rational Empiricism (FREE ebook)
eBook (PDF), 735 Pages
SpinbitZ is a philosophy of vision-logic interfaces for the percept-based illumination of abstract concepts. In tracing a nondual thread of rationality to its pre-Socratic roots, we find the axis-mundi hidden within Zeno’s paradox, and within nondual rationality. With the help of a hundred illustrations, we trace this embryogenesis of rationality, as it reconnects to the alternative lineage of Deleuze, with a nondual fusion of Spinoza and Leibniz. We also find that mathematics mirrors this embryogenesis and holarchical structure. Interface Mathematics transitions from the “oppositional forces” of dualism, ultimately again to the “intensive” truths of the nondual. In making mathematics visible and understandable, the two fundamental axes of conceptual thought are shown. Spinoza’s “three infinities” are then seen as the triune interface between these axes, for illuminating and reconciling the many paradoxes of infinity as they wind their...

Aug 22, 2014In writing Spinbitz, J. Morrison has accomplished the impossible; now I can claim: I’d rather be reading the Zohar. So how can I begin to critique a new way of looking at the world? By paraphrasing the answer to the old riddle: Where does an 800 pound gorilla sleep? I’ll begin anywhere I want to. Both the Zohar and Spinbitz are brilliant one by name, the other by nature. The 700 + pages of Spinbitz is vol. I of a proposed duology. Morrison admits inspiration for Spinbitz comes from Buckminster Fuller’s Synergetics: vols. I and II. In Synergetics, Fuller discloses a new mathematics based on the exploration of the tetrahedron and a rethinking of mathematical principles. His demonstration that 1+1=4, by using two triangles each with a small gap between the joining of the 1st and 3rd lines, captures the spirit of Spinbitz. I gave away my copy of Synergetics vol. I. I never made it through the 700 + pages. Since Morrison displays a familiarity with Fuller’s work, what does he make of... More > Fuller declaring 3 times in the video The World of B. Fuller that the proton and neutron always and only coexist. Fuller had forgotten that hydrogen has a proton but no neutron. This is like Morrison’s claim that there are no true negative rational numbers. His arguments are persuasive. He has discovered a hidden kind of infinity in rational numbers that has been overlooked because of a bias toward a certain method of producing large numbers. There also is a problem with claiming your statements aren’t absolute truth. The elements that prove your theories wrong are incorporated into the theories as accommodations. According to Morrison, Immanuel Kant attempted to eliminate “bad metaphysics” to clear the way for modern science. Much of modern science seems like “bad metaphysics.” Darwinian evolution seems to be proven by performing the experiments that indicate it is possible and not performing experiments that would indicate it’s not possible. I. Kant’s elimination of “bad metaphysics” meant the deracinating of Baruch Spinoza. Another work cited,is the Tao Te Ching. In the spirit of the Tao, Spinbitz is so optimistic it’s pessimistic. The optimism stems from the author’s ability to overturn so much received wisdom. The pessimism comes from realizing there is such vast ignorance. I look forward to vol. II with the same anticipation the fans awaited the Veronica Mars movie. I hope vol. I isn't like Daffy Duck’s magic trick. Find my free ebooks: lulu.com/spotlight/spinman.< Less
