A Strategy Toward the Fundamental Goal
Introduction, before we Begin
This text will discuss the most fundamental topic, the
derivation of a logical goal to life. Of course this
topic has been has been attempted many times before from
many different angles, but none have ever been conclusive.
The problem has always been not that knowledge was
lacking, but that there is simply too much of it. Too
much irrelevant information and assumptions that we try
to all put into place, and they never fit because many of them
have no basis and are probably not even accurate. You can't take an endless source or random irrelevant information and expect to simplify it into a single elegant solution.
Every philosophy, analysis and attempt at applying
logic to this world takes what already exists as its
basis and boundary. We weed through endless conflicting
ideals and "truths" to try and make
generalizations and find patterns, we hopelessly try to
find an answer that would not contradict these arrays of
random assumptions we are all so used to repeating.
So there will be something fundamentally different
about these texts. They will assume nothing from the
start. As though we are just born on to this earth and
know of nothing that exists. They will do that because
nothing that exists now is relevant to the most
fundamental questions, and nothing that exists now can be
certain to be true. There is no need to quote other
"thinkers" or "philosophers" of any
time, no need to introduce any ideas other than the ones
that can be arrived at in a logical progression. That is
how we will begin.
This text is very abstract in its nature, it ignores
all common and uncommon assumptions, and it assumes a
reader that is extremely open minded, but at the same
time one that will only accept the most logical
explanation of things. This text is intended only for
those that already see the flaws of the present pointless
existence and desire more than what this society can ever
offer. It is for those that have no ties or allegiances
to this society or anyone in it, and for those that chose
to dedicate 100% of their life to the pursuit of logic.
The Use of Logic
Logic in itself is a tool to apply to the information
that is presented. Two individuals can use accurate logic
to arrive at different conclusions if the information
they used was different. At the same time logic is also
universal, in the same exact circumstance accurate logic
should always give the same conclusion (assuming no
mistakes were made).
To use logic one has to start with something. But
instead of starting with arbitrary assumption we must
start with the barest minimum. Starting with the least
number of assumptions is the only way that there can be
no disagreement, and will give the highest odds that
those assumptions were accurate.
The Base Assumption
Because this assumption is so essential and yet so
basic this becomes a very difficult point of wording.
There is no word yet that describes this exact assumption
perfectly, but here are some variations that all mean the
- "There is a purpose"
- "Not all things/ideas/decisions are equal"
- "Something [of value/relevance] exists"
- There is something that matters
This wording states basically that logic can be
applied. If there is no purpose, all concepts are equal,
nothing exists and nothing matters then there is no
application of logic. Then no action, thought or decision
is better than any other action, thought or decision and
therefore logic becomes irrelevant.
We will call this assumption the assumption of NSG, or
non-specific goal. That also basically states that one
will use logic to pursue NSG, and that logic can be used
only in relation to NSG.
Assumption of Action - Decision Based Logic
The next assumption is something very different from
the way most people think of logic, and is also essential.
It isn't actually an assumption but more of a method of
applying logic. It is that logic will not be used to
derive "truths" or "facts" as there
is insufficient data to produce those with certainty.
Logic will be used to derive the best decision that lead
to actions toward pursuing NSG. Logic will be used to
construct the strategy with the best chance of attaining
Emphasis on Strategy
While above I mentioned that we assume action toward
pursuit of NSG, the most important part to action is a
global strategy. For example, you can take everything
above and begin studying some specific field of Science
or Mathematics in order to pursue NSG. That may be
accurate, but it was far from the most strategically
sound decision. One's contributions to any segment of
science or study already pursued by current society are
completely insignificant, as others would almost
certainly cover them. The most sound strategy may be
laying for foundation for true progress to take place
1000s of years from now rather than pursuing any studies
now with resources which are simply too limited to make
any success likely.
Some Basic Criticism of Todays Society
Before we continue laying out the foundation for
creating a strategy toward pursuit of NSG the obvious
question would be what is wrong with the course the
present society is taking? On one hand it could be said
that it is possible that the present society could still
achieve NSG, even though it is not intentionally pursuing
it but rather acting randomly and sometimes in the
process eliminating some unknowns. Todays society
does excel at scientific progress, but such progress
without a global strategy may be far from enough. The
only strategically sound thing to do is ignore the chance
that the present society could also reach NSG, since that
possibility is covered anyways, but rather focus on
creating a society that is perfectly suited toward that
pursuit to increase the chances of success.
Uniquely Different and Macro-Competitive
Creating something similar to what already exists has
as little point as pursuing something that would be
pursued on its own. What that means is that the society
we create must be very much different from anything that
currently exists. Currently the world functions based on
micro-competition, that means every being functions on
their own in competition with every other. This may be
effective for evolution based on random selection but it
also has very strict limits. The process could lead to a
single random catastrophe (nuclear war, etc.), it can
result in reverse evolution, and most likely it can lead
eventually get into an endless cycle. After all, human
beings were designed only to survive and reproduce, not
to produce progress. The complete opposite to random
selection and micro-competition is intelligent selection
and macro-competition. Intelligent selection can be
applied to anything that micro-competition was applied to
before, from genetics to ideas. Macro-competition means
all members of the society collaborating toward the same
goal, rather than all members pursuing random goals with
the hopes that sometimes they coincide with the goal.
First Strategic Step
The most optimal strategy takes into consideration
only the odds of success, not the time it takes or any
other preferences. More time will be probably need to
be devoted toward creating the most optimal strategy than
to actually taking any steps toward executing it. However, the first strategic step is clear, it is to find allies and create a micro-society
that is optimized for the pursuit of NSG. This is what
this website is about, and we will go no further into
discussing speculations about the strategic steps that
are to be taken afterwards.
