# Metaphysics

# It from bit

`2^x`

- how many distinct values could be represented with `x`

bits

`log2 x`

- how many bits is required to optimally represent information

two basic properties

- which are (combinations)
- how many (quantity)

## Sum

- the notion of an
*alternative*- logical connective`OR`

- the notion of a
*Sum*specify*which outcomes are possible* - the notion of
*addition*says*how many of them*

## Product

- the notion of a
*combination*- logical connective`AND`

- the notion of a
*product*specify which*combinations*are possible - the notion of
*multiplication*says*how many of them*

## Function

- the notion of
*transformation*- an implication - connective`=>`

- the notion of
*mapping*says*which arrows*are possible - the notion of
*exponentiation*says how many are there - exponentiation is
*not associative*, so is implication - it has
*a direction*, like a vector or a process. a build-up

### old stuff

Everything we think we know are just a rough approximations.

Everything expressed in a dualistic notion of logical OR - this or that, 1 or 0 are naive oversimplifications. Reality, it seems, manifested itself in accordance with the notion of logical AND - this AND that, 0 AND 1, (NOT 0 OR 1). To some extent, with some probability - fuzzy logic, as they call it.

Position of a particle is NOT known OR unknown - it is known AND unknown. It is an approximation, it is known to some extent - truth times some term between 0 and 1. It is a particle AND a wave, it is mass AND energy, it is a field, it is fuzzy. They call this Quantum mechanics.

In the same way, the source of consciousness is known AND unknown. It cannot be described with thoughts made out of words - its products, but it very often could be grasped, experienced non-verbaly. Just because it is everything everywhere and we are That.
