Independence and Cohesion

“The health of society thus depends quite as much on the independence of the individuals composing it as on their close social cohesion.”

AlbertEinstein, Mein Weltbild, Amsterdam: Querido Verlag, 1934 (from Ideas and Opinions, “Society and Personality”)

At first, this bit of irony from Einstein’s statement – calling for independence and cohesion – might seem odd.  It might even be a near impossibility.  After all, how can a society be simultaneously autonomous and unified, let alone closely unified?  Doesn’t unity with others interfere with autonomy?  In other words, within a group – a closely unified group – wouldn’t the actions, behaviors, and decisions of the individuals influence each other thus interfering with the integrity of true independence of those same individuals?

Let’s take a closer look at this through the IPT lens.

IPT proposes a paradigm shift.  In the old paradigm, the irony of Einstein’s statement inhibits its own fruition.  In IPT’s paradigm, it not only makes sense, but also becomes critically necessary as yet another apropos demarcation between the two realities those paradigms represent.

How so?

The current e-reality mediates an endless array of information at exponentially lightning speeds and unmanageably indigestible quantities thus fragmenting the mediasphere and clogging the pipes of intelligence.  Against the backdrop of fragmentation, cohesion becomes increasingly out of reach.  However, within a paradigm where ultimate freedom (UF) is a realizable ‘end-goal’, the individual attains liberation from these ‘fetters’ of the self.  More importantly, within the UF sphere, not only is the individual cohesively in union with freedom, s/he is freedom.

Upon closer inspection then, Einstein’s statement is exactly on-point with IPT.

Einstein, you are a friend, indeed!

Einstein’s Liberation

The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self.”

–Albert Einstein, Mein Weltbild, Amsterdam: Querido Verlag, 1934 (from Ideas and Opinions, “The True Value of a Human Being”)

It is from Einstein’s brilliantly humbling words that Infinite Potentiality Theory (IPT) takes it’s inspiration.  Indeed, the concept of ultimate freedom comes from the liberation he mentions.  However, rather than place a value system on that liberation, IPT offers an absolute freedom whereby all fetters of the self – including value systems – are obviated.

Within IPT is a qualitative ontological paradigm shift of dyads from the phenomenological/metaphysical to infinite creative potentiality (ICP) – ultimate freedom (UF).  In the erstwhile paradigm, the phenomenological runs counter to the metaphysical.  Indeed, for Kant, man is even restricted from the metaphysical a priori realm, only able to access the phenomenological.  In IPT’s paradigm, ICP is necessary for UF.  The paradigm is not a dyad, it is a necessary collaboration.  Furthermore, it is critical that man access both realms.

Returning to Einstein’s statement and the value system he places on liberation, it makes sense that he does so within the context of the old paradigm.  Within IPT, however, the paradigm enables the individual’s freedom from any such systems.  By so doing, he is truly within a sphere of liberation of and from the self.

The SWF is thus answered:

IPT touches every individual as it speaks to the very essence of his existence at his highest creativity within absolute liberation.

Aristotle is credited with stating: truth is beauty and beauty is truth.

IPT proclaims: liberation in the absolute is ultimate freedom and this is an infinitely beauteous truth!
