Thought Experiments

Thought Experiments were something first popularized to this author’s knowledge by Albert Einstein. They are a way of thinking about an experiment without actually conducting it for a number of reasons. One might be economics, and another might be the physical capability to conduct it due to scale or other issues imposed by reality. The key factor which must always be remembered is that these types of contemplations are virtual. That is to say they are logical in their nature. We must exact extreme caution not to commit Langer Epistemology Errors in conducting them and we must adhere to the Elegant Reasonism Generalized Process Flow.

This Area Under Extensive Development

Please bear with us as we work to integrate the content of books we have removed from the marketplace and integrate that content here and update it with material developed through our systems review and other efforts. There is almost 20 years worth of effort that has gone into the insights presented here. It may take us some time and these pages are likely to change for the foreseeable future.

Document Construction Herein

Considering the essential problem, challenges, alternatives, choices, rationales, and sets of associated next steps, our conclusion was (right, wrong, or indifferent) was to create these documents holistically in context of the denoted EIM.

Vital Context

Ultimately this discussion must be had from a precipice capable of perceiving the unified Universe. If you are not on that precipice, please note that this discussion must be mode shifted consistent with Elegant Reasonism, its rules, processes & methods, be consistent with the realm of c’s, all wholly in keeping with Elegant Reasonism as an epistemology supported by its analytical framework which seeks truth as a function of the unified Universe as a philosophical predicate priority consideration entering science. The reason for this citation can be distilled into a single word: Context. If you are not critically situationally aware in your thinking of how fundamental context changes as a function of the EIM employed and the pattern shifts requiring different modes of thought you will be a considerable disadvantage.

Thought Experiment Taxonomy

The taxonomy of thought experiments begins with the body of work Elegant Reasonism represents. Thought experiments may be applied as integral components of particular EIM or they may be holistically applied as a part of the different phases of investigation: Recognition, Illumination, or Analysis, or even in the final Treatise. This website is structured to support such contemplation. Do not forget the User Library is at your disposal and any given folder or file therein may be linked. Documents built on such links can be shared with any other registered users knowing that those links will resolve back into this website. That places all Concepts, Propositions, Thought Experiments, Presentations, White Papers, etc relative to and respective of Elegant Reasonism and The Emergence Model (including posts like the original Press Release)  at your disposal for integration.

EIM Enumeration and Iteration

The basic EIM enumeration is linked below to one of the seven recognized encapsulated interpretive models. Specific detailed iterations of any of these EIMs should be documented by investigators in a tool like our ISO 9001 Unification Tool which is a relational database for all the reasons that tool was created. There is no requirement to use our tool. You may use any tool with equivalent relational linkage capability. We elected to provide our tool empty exactly because we believe that an international committee should be convened to determine the baseline set of enumerations and iterations any such tool should contain. We did not want to be presumptuous and declare what is or is not correct for any given enumeration or iteration. To us that would have been the height of arrogance and we did not want to take that stance.  Consequently, much to the disappointment of many, our tool is provided empty.  We are happy to assist / participate to the extent we are able in such a committee. We believe the results of such a group would be to establish new worldwide standards which would then support organizations like NIST and ISO worldwide.
