Why you too can (and should) become a universal philosopher.
Quote from the book "I, You, and All of Us" (p. 152)
As you notice, I am giving a very different description of Nature here than you have certainly usually heard. But it is also only a description. Not an absolute truth. In what way, then, is this description better than all the others? The improvement lies in a single argument. But it is unbeatable. It is a Unified Description (the only one in the world so far), a Unified Science that unites all previous branches of the natural sciences and the humanities.
What does that mean in practical terms? All of today's science has different disciplines. In each of them we have different theories that try to explain to us (actually just tell us in more or less detail) how that part of the universe works that can be observed through the particular "glasses" of that particular discipline. In our description, the differences between the traditional disciplines no longer exist. There is only one "universal lens". There is only one idea of how the Universe works, and this idea is the same in all disciplines of science. The different disciplines are now starting to speak with the same language. In practical terms, this means above all that they use the same physical Time Scale of natural events. Everything that happens in Nature happens in a temporal order. And this sequence is the same when we talk about the evolution of the Universe (in cosmology), the Solar System (in astrophysics), the evolution of the Earth (in geophysics), the evolution of Humans (in biophysics), or the rise and fall of human civilisations (in history).
And what is even more exciting, this whole Time Scale arises from a Unified Family of all possible physical quantities, which in turn is based on only one natural premise, the size (or mass, if you like) of the primordial cosmic cloud from which our present Solar System arose. Isn't that enough of an appeal for you to embrace this whole new description of what we can and, I believe, should know? And to do so regardless of the resistance of all the traditionalists who want to keep the "status quo" in their ancestral disciplines? So, become a universal philosopher yourself. The joy of this will come as a side effect.
