A Note From the Cliff

This work examines the divide between sociological and scientific interpretation of the world. From perception at the human first perspective, distance is all that can be validly inferred in the construction of a 'physically self-belonging' world of volume contained to volume. Science interpretation, rather than constructing with respect to interaction between witnesses sharing a common time interval, elaborates volume as a discrete additive entity, induces mathematically in projections to treat time redundantly in its' assignment of an independent time to distinct individual perspectives. A very different world view of heterogeneous entities results when it is considered that volumes as well as discrete times overlap one another in cogent assesment. A more realistic appraisal is presented and analogy is made to graphical construction of pictorials in which time and continuity is not a factor in the construction of unique volume enclosing surfaces. Referencing Bertrand Russell's philosophies of sets, variable substitution and absolute defining of value by historical particulars, the processes of a town meeting are dissected in terms of the heterogeneous characteristic "face" that emerges from immiscibility at the interface of the general characteristic "volume" and the elaboration of unique (egg) shaped volumes that can overlap one another. Ensued is a natural ethic for the preservation of motion that is absent of ordinary moral criteria, possessing in space, qualia of direction, physical and temporal contiguity and form in motion. As determinants of history, behavior, emotion, mood, and expression are inferred to be associated with events external to cultures, it is argued that a better understanding of proximity and setting/location as it relates to achieved path, learning and decision making, is needed to establish a survivable relation of men to their own creations.
