UP25. The used knowledge must go!

The motto of this year's "Secret Santa" in our family was: "Used Things". This drew me to the concept of "used knowledge". We're talking about knowledge here, about understanding "why?" as opposed to skills, or knowledge "how?" Being able to ride a bike is a skill. Understanding why a cyclist can't tip over is a knowledge.

One of the most important knowledge of mankind is that there are no absolute truths. All the knowledge of mankind has always been, is today, and will remain in the future, only a more or less extensive narrative. A story, which we acquire more and more since our childhood, so that we consider it as "true" in the adult age, and do not question it any more. You may now think, "But there are at least some simple truths, e.g., 'We are all human beings' ". Then we consider together whether it is really true. Do you really want to be in the same "sack" with all the dictators and other criminals of the world? Or would you rather consider them all as "inhumans"? Exactly. Each and every one of us surely knows further examples of such only apparently "absolute truths".

The knowledge about Nature, that is the understanding of the natural world around us and in ourselves, we have acquired step by step in the past. In the process, we have always further developed and deepened individual parts of this knowledge. For example, the Ptolemaic planetary system with the Earth in the center was replaced by the Copernican system with the Sun in the center. The Ptolemaic system thus became second-hand knowledge. Too much of the used knowledge became ballast over time especially for the school programs. When the knowledge is already "used up," it must be disposed of so that the new, innovative ideas can find their own place in the education of the younger generations. However, the New Knowledge should not be seen as a substitute for the Used. Only the New Knowledge has the potential to take us further forward in the study of Nature than we have been to date. Tradition is good for the history of progress. But only the New Knowledge can ensure the continuation of history for the future. To stay with the example of our planetary system, even the Copernican Solar System must now be disposed of, because I have shown that the true center of the system is not in the Sun, but in Venus.

Therefore, my main thesis today is: Everything what we have learned in our schools about the Nature can be (and must be) disposed as used knowledge almost completely. The whole knowledge about Nature (of which we are a part), can now be found in my last two books. One is the reference book: "Universal Philosophy of Life". And the second one: "I, You, and All of Us", also describes a practical proposal how we can all together survive the current century and the whole third millennium. The future generations of people will gather their own knowledge, which will also make these my ideas used knowledge. But only if we give them the chance to be born at all.

So: All the best for the future of mankind!

Das gebrauchte Wissen muss weg!

Das Motto diesjähriges "Wichteln" in unserer Familie hieß: "Gebrauchtes". Das hat mich auf den Begriff des "Gebrauchten Wissens" gelenkt. Wir sprechen hier von Wissen, von verstehen "Warum?", im Unterschied zu Fähigkeiten, oder zu Kenntnissen "Wie?" Ein Fahrrad fahren zu können, ist eine Fähigkeit. Zu verstehen, wieso ein Fahrradfahrer nicht umkippen kann, ist ein Wissen.

Eine der wichtigsten Erkenntnisse der Menschheit ist, dass es keine Absoluten Wahrheiten gibt. Das ganze Wissen der Menschheit war schon immer, ist heute, und bleib auch in der Zukunft, nur eine mehr oder weniger umfangreiche Erzählung. Eine Geschichte, die wir uns seit unserer Kindheit immer mehr und mehr aneignen, so dass wir sie im erwachsenen Alter als "wahr" betrachten, und sie nicht mehr hinterfragen. Man denkt jetzt vielleicht: "Aber es gibt doch mindestens einige einfache Wahrheiten, z. B., 'Wir alle sind Menschen' ". Dann überlegen wir gemeinsam, ob es wirklich stimmt. Möchtest Du wirklich zusammen mit allen Diktatoren und anderen Verbrechern der Welt im gleichen "Sack" stecken? Oder würdest Du sie alle lieber als "Unmenschen" betrachten? Eben. Jeder und Jede von uns kennt sicherlich weitere Beispiele solcher nur scheinbar "absoluten Wahrheiten".

Das Wissen über die Natur, also das Verständnis der natürlichen Welt um uns herum und in uns selbst, haben wir Schritt für Schritt in der Vergangenheit erlangt. Dabei haben wir immer einzelne Teile dieses Wissens weiter entwickelt und vertieft. Zum Beispiel, das Ptolemäische Planetensystem mit der Erde in der Mitte wurde durch das Kopernikanische System mit der Sonne in der Mitte ersetzt. Das Ptolemäische System wurde dadurch zum gebrauchten Wissen. Zu viel des gebrauchten Wissens wurde mit der Zeit zum Ballast vor allem für die Schulprogramme. Wenn das Wissen bereits "verbraucht" ist, muss es entsorgt werden, damit die neuen, innovativen Ideen ihren eigenen Platz in der Ausbildung der jungen Generationen finden können. Das Neue Wissen soll aber nicht als Ersatz für das Gebrauchte betrachtet werden. Nur das Neue Wissen hat das Potenzial uns weiter als bislang nach vorne in der Erforschung der Natur zu bringen. Tradition ist gut für die Geschichte des Fortschritts. Aber nur das Neue Wissen kann die Fortsetzung der Geschichte auch für die Zukunft gewährleisten. Um bei dem Beispiel unseres Planetensystems zu bleiben, auch das Kopernikanische Sonnensystem muss jetzt entsorgt werden, weil ich gezeigt habe, dass das wahre Zentrum des Systems nicht in der Sonne, sondern in der Venus liegt.

Deswegen, meine Hauptthese heute lautet: Alles was wir in unseren Schulen über die Natur gelernt haben kann man (und muss man) als Gebrauchtes Wissen fast restlos entsorgen. Das gesamte Wissen über die Natur (von welcher wir ein Teil sind), kann man jetzt in meinen zwei letzten Büchern finden. Das eine ist das Nachschlagewerk: "Universale Philosophie des Lebens". Und das zweite: "Ich, Du, und wir Alle", beschreibt auch einen praktischen Vorschlag, wie wir alle gemeinsam das laufende Jahrhundert und das ganze dritte Millennium überleben können. Die zukünftigen Generationen der Menschen werden ihr eigenes Wissen sammeln, welches auch diese meinen Ideen zum Gebrauchten Wissen machen werden. Aber nur, wenn wir ihnen die Chance geben, überhaupt geboren zu werden.

Also: Alles Gute für die Zukunft der Menschheit!

UP24. 2070; Keep going! Keep doing!

My practical proposal of a typical living arrangement of a basic family (BaFa), what I proposed in my last book ("Unified Science about me, you, and all of us"), is presented here still extended by some practical details.

The purpose of the whole transformation of the world community was and is the preservation of the most important achievement of mankind so far, namely democracy, from the destructive attempts of all former ideologies (like fascism, communism, or capitalism) to undermine this idea. Only after several crises and catastrophes of the 20th century it was recognized that democracy does not mean exactly what one wanted to take from the wording of the name "democracy". Not every vote of every individual can be perceived at the same time. The vote must also (like all the rest of Nature) be "energetically quantized". A representative of each individual BaFa carries all votes of the BaFa to the level of the extended (great) family and the clan. Only then the representative of this clan carries the collective voice of the whole clan to the level of the districts and the city. And only then can the representatives of all (about 140) cities of a nation with a "collective voice" of the nation represent it at the world forum of all (about 140) nations, equally weighted for each nation (which gathers a group of about 36 million people). These 140 "national" representatives all know each other personally. And only they represent all the voices of humanity. If one of them does not behave democratically, this becomes immediately visible for all others. Only on this "quantized" Familiar Democracy, organized on the core of human families, we can all hope together that it will help us to solve the enormous environmental problems that will still come to us humans.

Let us imagine: it is the year 2070. What could we have achieved by then if we actually start to reorganize our world community today. Otherwise, if we wait a few more decades, we will lose the last chance to save ourselves from extinction. Instead, we put ourselves at the forefront of the species that will leave the Earth.

UP23. Family First! Make Family great again!

Every person in the world normally comes from one family. In order to involve all people in shaping our world community, we invented democracy. The thesis in my latest books and also in this blog is such transformation of the principles of democracy, in which this great idea can be really realized. Eight billion voices cannot be taken into account at the same time. In order to be able to realize the worldwide democracy, we must put again this natural family connection of all humans into the foreground of our efforts for the democracy. How this could look concretely, I present in the following article.

In my last book ("Unified Science about me, you, and all of us"), I propose that we return to the natural unity of every human society, the basic family. Indeed, I realized that all life in our Universe is energetically quantized. This means that human groups, which are nothing but "naturally organized energy", must also follow this pattern of the quantum spectrum.

Only this natural hierarchy of the individual levels of our world community provides us with a real possibility to create a familiar-participative democracy, in which not the impossible is attempted (namely, to consider billions of individual voices), but the rule (which is quite often observed in Nature) is accepted, that a representative of a certain human group may and can represent this whole group on the correspondingly higher levels of the demographic hierarchy.

In order to be able to realize this vision, all Basic Families of a Great Family must be able to live spatially very close to each other permanently. In order to realize this in turn, we must completely rethink our world community and plan its dwellings accordingly. This blog-contribution describes my suggestion for it (more background knowledge you can find in my last books). And, yes, the title of this contribution is intentionally provocative, because it should not be a "flash in the pan", but must remain in the memory.
