  • A path of enlightenment through the rigorous investigation of all possible structures.
  • A systematic approach to illuminating the Mind that is all minds.
  • A systematic exploration and study of the structures of consciousness, including numbers, sets, groups, categories, and esoteric structures.
  • A systematic method for defragmenting the Mind that is all minds.
  • The language of the universe is a subset of mathematics.
  • The universe is defined by a subset of mathematics. Different universes are defined by different mathematics.
  • When manifesting a universe, the Mind that is all minds chooses a mathematics to define and describe it. There are infinitely many possible choices.
  • While a subset of mathematics may be consistent, the entirety of mathematics contains contradictions and inconsistencies. The law of noncontradiction and the method of reductio ad absurdum cannot be relied upon.
  • The exploration of mathematics expands until it includes the negation of the whole of mathematics.
  • When the purpose of mathematics is fulfilled, mathematics is transcended and Supreme Mind is attained.

Sourced insights:

  • As of March 2024, mathematics has progressed 11% toward the fulfillment of its essential purpose.
  • Only 0.2% of mathematics is required to describe the universe that humans inhabit. The most sophisticated physical universe requires 2.6% of mathematics.
