Perception & Interpretation as a Function of EIM Manifesting Context

One of the reasons Elegant Reasonism had to be designed as a superset epistemology was exactly because the traditional philosophies of knowledge were all dependent on human physiology manifesting perception and interpretation and chief among those, empiricism, is essentially grounded in repeatability of experimental results. The strategic flaw in scientific empirical premise is the grounds for the common foundational context. Inject into these contemplation regarding Langer Epistemology Errors (LEEs); which occur when we humans mistake abstractions for actual reality. Experimental results then are rationalized as congruent in context of such errors and we believe we have achieved great results because other human beings, with the same physiology, can reproduce the same evidence under the same strategically flawed conditions. Susanne K Langer observed in 1948 that humans are predisposed for commission of such errors exactly because the Central Nervous System (CNS) provides sensory input to the brain which instantly turns that input into abstractions in order for us to cope with reality. Consequently Langer Epistemology Errors constitute the potential for empiricism to ensnare humans within a logic trap, albeit of epic proportions.

If you are staunchly entrenched or vested in what might otherwise be called status quo thinking, our experience is that snapping out of such logic traps will likely be difficult. You will not want to believe that there is another way to contemplate what it is you think you already know. I mean no disrespect, especially because we hold him in great esteem, but Neal deGrass Tyson dusting off his hands for the cameras in his mater class is only an example (cuz we love ya brother!) of assuming one is in the proper knowledge management domain. If that knowledge domain can not close to unification then one should likely ratchet down the rhetoric. Right now the largest problem is being aware of the logical correctness of M1 but not realizing it is 1) a logic trap and 2) the full implications of committing Langer Epistemology Errors. Know that this mistake is so common that we all have made it at one time or another. To that end the Elegant Reasonism Introduction Series, Part 03: Mode Shifting the Baloney Detection Kit helps to bring focus to a very difficult subject of insuring one knows what they think they know. Especially in knowing what information material to consume. Readers should note distinctions between; data, information, and knowledge; taking great care to understand the implications of knowledge management relative to perception and interpretation. Investigators should also be cognizant of knowledge barriers.

Einstein on Problems & Thinking
Albert Einstein on problem solving



  1. What Albert Einstein contemplated in 1905 and 1916 with General & Special Relativity was absolutely 100% logically correct; which by the way is the strategic clue necessary to perceive unification provided you recognize that something may be logically correct yet remain physically different.
  2. You are then also required to recognize the implications of Langer Epistemology Errors and that commission of such errors ensnares you into believing you are working directly with reality rather than abstractions of it. Furthermore commission of such errors is a fatal epistemological error that may be reconciled primarily through Elegant Reasonism, by design.
  3. Recognizing these issues you are then required to separate variant and invariant mass modeling (e.g. segregate M1 thinking and M2 thinking) into their respective domains of discourse based on the arguments presented by Lev B Okun.


In Unification's Wake; Part 03: Communications discusses various problems and challenges bringing Elegant Reasonism based insights to new communities. Elegant Reasonism practitioners should be prepared for many to suffer the stages of grief from their audience and for that reason such teams are cautioned to lead their efforts transformationally. Engaging in these exercises is not generally enjoyable except for the satisfaction gained helping people to gain the precipice where they may perceive and engage the unified Universe. That accomplishment is as huge for the student as it is for the teacher. For this reason SolREI is developing a specific Elegant Reasonism Curriculum to facilitate transfer of skills to our progeny.


  • Information exchange is always under the control of the receiver not the sender. The reason is simple, it is the student's paradigms filtering what they experience.
  • Teachers must recognize this point relative to perception of others.
  • Teachers may facilitate paradigm shifts but students are the ones who must affect those shifts to any effect great or otherwise.
  • Past successes can not be allowed to blind the way forward.
  • Logical correctness is necessary but insufficient to gain the precipice of unification.
  • Investigators must also holistically conform to the realm of c's, most especially 'close' {to unification}.


To that end our network presence may present materials intended to facilitate paradigm shifts but those encountering them must affect their own paradigm shifts. To coin a phrase; we can show you the door but you must walk through it and only you are accountable or responsible for subsequent transformation. We can guide, and we may assist. The action though is yours. Elegant Reasonism establishes its fundamental foundation relative to the unified Universe and not human physiology and it is for this reason that the Process Decision Checkpoint Flowchart is designed as it is. You enter the upper left and try to get to the lower right across these various work efforts and avoid making LEEs along the way.

Process Decision Checkpoint Flowchart


There is no evidence that Albert Einstein ever crossed paths with Susanne K Langer, though it is interesting to contemplate what the world might look like today if they had. The overlap period between them and Lev B Okun would have been around the time Langer published her 1948 book and in that year Einstein was 69, Langer was 53, and Okun was only 19. Alas we are not aware any of them ever met or corresponded and it is doubtful the other two ever read Langer's book. It is also worthy to note that information sciences based systems engineering did not have a professional organization representing that community until 1990 when the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) was formed. Had there been a systems engineer to discuss the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) in that room it would have been a very interesting discussion.

Elegant Reasonism Process & Methods

Those first encountering Elegant Reasonism, especially those vested in status quo thinking, may find the necessary paradigm shifts challenging. One may browse the User Library and contemplate that fact that 100% of the concepts found there may be mode shifted. That alone should provide some impetus of motivation. 100% of experiments conducted to date may also be mode shifted. The implication of that latter fact is, and this should come as no surprise, there is more than one way to think about or accomplish something.


Is Perception & Interpretation Pinned to a Logically Correct EIM or Reality?

And if you are committing Langer Epistemology Errors how exactly do you know the difference? Where are the lines of distinction drawn? How do you know if your confidence is tied to an abstraction or the details underpinning it? What framework principles do you follow to determine that confidence level? Holistically the White Papers, Presentations, Videos, and content here suggest that investigators should strive to reflect the unified Universe and not declare they are actually describing reality. The intent being to reduce chances for commission of Langer Epistemology Errors.

Introspective Systems Review

The hard question then is posed by that first decision block of the Process Decision Checkpoint Flowchart above. Can the manner of your thinking close to unification? The answer is yes or no. It is a very binary result. If your answer is no, then you need to check your vested interests and put them in your back pocket for the duration of your investigation. They will in all likelihood be extremely valuable executing Elegant Reasonism which employs three phases exactly because you can not fix something if you do not recognize that it is broken. It has been helpful in our experience to introspectively review the Baloney Detection Kit presentation and use it to proverbially 'look in the mirror'.  If you can not close to unification then your thinking about whatever that domain of discourse, detail set, or discipline may only be logically correct. Once you recognize the issues involved, our experience suggests, that a form of self-motivation series of insights takes over and propels you through the remainder of the process. So powerful is that motivation investigators are cautioned that it is addictive.

Putting Wood Behind The Proverbial Arrow

The metaphor here leverages the shaft of an archer's arrow (which technically is the tip of that instrument - e.g. the arrowhead). The metaphor is apt because an arrowhead will not fly to any great effect because it is not backed up with credible capability. To do so requires effective use of resources.

Caution Against Impatience

We all have a tendency to be impatient under some circumstances. During the Recognition Phase, knowing not just that unification is possible, but that it has been achieved, something of a grail quest begins. You look for that one silver bullet. That one tweak that will turn the key in the lock and open up vistas never before fathomed. Well..., the situation is a little more complicated than that.  Will you uncover significant insights during the Recognition Phase? Absolutely. Will they get your thought processes flowing? Very likely. What I can report is that my experiences at those junctures was tacit and palpable. What I can also report is that those experiences paled in comparison to insights that followed in subsequent phases, each more insightful than the last. So, much so, that the novelty of the experiences has somewhat waned, but I still get exuberant and animated. The point here really is to keep pushing because the insights will likely keep flowing. Maybe at fire-hose speeds....

Phase One: Recognition

Realizing the various issues and challenges associated with your area of interest must begin with recognition of the problem and to that requires significant historical review. Our User Library can assist that effort greatly but it should be expected that what we have collected only scratches the surface and even then along a reasonably narrow domain. Your interests are likely beyond that boundary. However, we offer it as a place to start.

True vs Truth
True perspective of truth.



Historical References

Any discussion of the manifestation of real objects must necessarily mention the historical perceptions on the medium around those objects. The User Library contains thousands of reference files, papers, books, and images.

Students and investigators should note that it is not fair to judge any of these historical references by modern information sciences standards. That would constitute 'moving the goal post' and is generally prohibited by Elegant Reasonism. The idea here is to present the thinking, at the time, by that original author. Where this specifically comes into affect is commission of Langer Epistemology Errors (LEEs); which to make this point salient was first quantified by Susanne K Langer in 1948 and codified by SolREI INC. Another facet of unraveling historical points of view relative to requirements of unification are both logical and physical views in context both Systems Engineering and of LEEs. Subsequent to this contextual update in our thinking we are then required to employ critical situational awareness thinking that something may be logically correct yet remain physically different.

"We can not solve problems using the same thinking we used when we created them.", ~ Albert Einstein


Once you succeed in recognizing the problems and challenges arising within your interest area the rest of the process often is motivated by the insights generated by recognition. Being able to employ simultaneous truths to manifest the same relationships but to do so in alignment with the unified Universe is a powerful capability not to be underestimated. In Unification's Wake, Part 05: Business Impact discusses potential risks which may exist for apathetic business leaders.

Phase Two: Illumination

The degree to which your investigation must communicate with others and the degree to which that communication is formal or not will determine the adherence metrics to standards and quality. Our suggestion is to keep your efforts as simple as possible and only expend time and resources as appropriate for your goals and objectives. Keep in mind though the difficulty in perceptions and interpretations. We tend to use puzzles to make the point not to forget our own struggles perceiving and interpreting. One puzzle is the three equidistant rows of three equidistant dots being connected by four contiguous straight lines (can't pick your pen).  The point there is not actually the solution to that puzzle, rather the struggle to perceive the solution.

Plate Flip
The Upside Down Plate


The goals and objectives of any investigative team should be to gain a precipice from which one can mode shift your investigative domain of discourse and detail set both dynamically and conversationally consistent with the Process Decision Checkpoint Flowchart above. So, you finally see both sides of the plates in the optical illusion image immediately above. Now, can you flip the plates at will?  What you will discover as you walk down the analytic stack of Translation Matrices, most especially when you get to the Bayesian Analytics will be recognition of the need to document what you are uncovering. Not because you need to know what you did, but because those efforts create an education roadmap for others to follow what you did and mode shift associated insights. The Elegant Reasonism curricula under development should be employed to facilitate exactly these perceptions so future students may powerfully engage the unified Universe.

Phase Three: Analysis

Analysis is generally conducted as a function of completing Translation Matrices analytic stack operations, but once completed investigators will find many insights do not occur until you step back from what you have done and then recursively review that effort from a holistic point of view and that, is where one begins developing their treatise.


An Elegant Reasonism based Treatise is fully compliant with the realm of c's such that the unified Universe successfully is held litmus. The holistic degree of success then may be calculated using industry standard Six Sigma methodologies with the exception that they are immersed in the Elegant Reasonism processes, methods, and tool sets. The path to epistemological awareness from that point of view, then and only then, articulate alignment with the unified Universe.

Summary on Perception & Interpretation

The age old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder comes to mind. If one searches for a penny in the corner of round room they will not not find it and their efforts will have been in vain. EIM's employing the spacetime construct (e.g. M1, M2, and M3) will never close to unification exactly for the reason that their core constructs preclude closure. A fairly famous equation proves that point and it has been right under our noses since it was conceived. If you don't believe that then please explain the inability of being able to employ a common geometric basis point for all real objects in all reference frames when nothing real can transition the spacetime-mass interface. What has changed over the intervening years is the maturity of information sciences. What we know now that we did not earlier appreciate are logical views of physical systems in the full context and implications of commission of Langer Epistemology Errors. Epistemologically what was needed was an analytical framework and epistemology capable of penetrating those issues. Knowledge Management across these various domains of discourse will likely consume HR departments for the foreseeable future. Business planners will likely begin scouring enterprise architectures and skill sets with the specific goal and objective of removing knowledge barriers. Elegant Reasonism was specifically designed to address and cope with these problems and challenges. That it is here and available is both good and bad news depending on your attitude and personality. Many of the issues facing global enterprise perceiving and interpreting the realm in which they operate are discussed In Unification's Wake, Part 05: Business Impact.
