Nice one ^^ hehe, but as far as i read, to what standards you posted, it makes sense but as for humans and people in general will take your theory into account and some will ignore it because the world is always made up in conflict...and contradictory and other things in which for my education of words and intelligence is hard to explain in terms that are adequate...other than lamence terms. I mean its a good theory and all but the essence of humans alone always have a way of saying whats contradictory of what your trying to prove.

No offense, but isn't that obviously common sense? Everything has exceptions even theories. Theories are meant to describe trends that can account for observations. Thus, it doesn't account for everything, but what tends to happen.

^ Agreed. If it was so, shouldn't we be finding a universal theory by now that solves everything? In any case, all I can do is incorporate as many subjects and make as many connections as possibly can so it can fill in the "gaps" and those not bounded by any one theory alone.

I sense that you are trying to do is an impossible task because you seek to find the length and breadth of knowledge and understanding.

But one thing I do know that this will not be completed by you nor in your life time or so I figure. This is more like a work in progress and you have laid a foundation. Other people will come and build upon it.

My personal outlook is that it will never be completed though finalized many times in forms of countless revisions. It will also grow so huge that the project must be divided into general departments and then into specialized departments. Anyway, there must always be an artistic flair to this.

None the less, it is very amusing and interesting.

Yeah as i stated in my background, I don't plan on finishing it (that's out of the question). Right now I'm still gathering variable info. I want to make sure I get to lay enough to make a decent foundation(s).

interesting theory but im a bit confused on how u plan to 'integrate' knowledge...

i do have a suggestion.. or maybe this is a completely new model altogether... but i think an electrical circuit model is closer to wut ur looking for. if there was ever a universal equation, it would be V=IR (ohm's law), F=ma (newton's law), umm u see that same equation in all areas of science in one form or another... wen i studied biomedical engineering, we'd model pretty much everything with electrical circuits... blood pumping thru ur veins, ion channels, signals thru ur nervous system, fluid systems, mechanical systems..

the idea is that everything is connected in the same system... and the behavior of everything is governed by the universal law... i guess in ur case, it would be something like Truth = rate of progress x resistance (something like the natural limits to understanding the complete truth)... and you can add in capacitors to model stuff like building up social tension until the tipping point of wars... inductors to accelerate the rate of progress like the einsteins and hitlers that drive change... diodes when you have irreversible progress... feedback control systems so that each change in the system is the new starting point in the present..

you would only need to come up with the electrical analog for every subject you wish to model.. and come up with quantitative values for all of the elements... this is the only way i can think of where u can actually integrate knowledge and accurately duplicate the behavior of your system according to the individual elements.

Well done, I like it....
I'll try with the little bit of english I posses to express my toughts.... sorry for all confusion that may occur...

This theory is great, but I don't agree on the exeptions.... simply don't make sense to put exeptions in a formula... usually, it's because of a certain data that haven't been considered...

assuming that in the history, progress isn't a direct relation with time
from the romains to the italian renaissance and the humanists, nearly nothing was done, either for science or politics or philosophie....
Assuming also that sometimes the progress just makes a big jump in a very small time.... it sometimes even go down like in 600 to 1400 period....

The amount of beliefs... I think is important. We believe to fill the blanks in our knowledge, and at some point, the beliefs become the truth, not allowing to look further, to think further than what is already established as a truth. That stops the knowledge from evolving at some point.

I don't mean believe in god or som..... More like - Earth is the center of the universe... and such. Bad conclusion to a scientific field - it happens all the time.

The way I see things, is more like P = (E (p(t)) (the E is the sign for sum... I didnt found it)
The total progress = the sum of all progress (specific to a time)
and also p(t) = (T/B)
progress over a portion of time = time div by beliefs on that same portion of time
(by that I mean any assumption that keeps us from seaching as a direct effect over progress- it is even possible to become negative)


Well... I leave you the Math thing, I'll stick with history..... but I see thing more...... curvy...
I tried my best to explain the way I see it..... but I guess I should think more about it.... and be better in english, still Love that theory anyway!! Tell me when it's finished... I wanna read it!

@ wushukid: Yes interesting I actually have physics related stuff that goes along with it. They will be introduced later. I'd be happy to show you one application: proving God's existence, an example I would be using for the actual document.

@ esilabet: Yes that is true that's why while conversing with jamehze, we were considering derivative(s) of an alternating series.

I didnt have time to read it all through, but do you think that you would have different views if you were brought up with a different religion, like judaism? Lisa

You do know that, if you publish it, it could be like those huge books that are in the library. You know. the ones that I read. By the way, P=t^I, I being the intelligence of those who are sentient, and in undescribable units.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what I am saying, so please, move on.

The main fault I see in this is that the paradigm for "perfection" is permanence. As time passes on only the most successful patterns will be maintained. You described evolution, not a search for perfection.

Evolution stops as soon as there is no competition. Perhaps we will develop technology to a sufficient degree and then become completely hedonistic as a culture.

The way I understand you, your theory integrates different ideas through proximity (this is how I interpreted the "chain rule"). A carpenter befriends a philosopher who befriends a cook, and they are all influenced by each other and the output of their lives is a refined combination of those three fields meshed into one later to be integrated by others. The problem with that is that many things are buried by the zeitgeist. One of my favorite authors is out of print in favor of JK Rowling. There is simply too much information to digest, and so we see a tendency to streamline both technology and culture. Even though we have more people alive than the sum of all the people in history, we have a far greater amount of homogeny (I blame cell phones).

On a side note, I am quite optimistic about the future. I believe that everything will progress, but I also believe that many beautiful and interesting things will be lost as well.

This intrigues me... however best of luck to you, M-Theory is still a very hazy theory, and that is only for the integration of the areas of physics, you are setting yourself a much harder task!

Interesting.. Loking forward to hearing more of your ideas. Please keep it updated!

BTW... this thread is almost as bad as any science thread.. (keeps me thinking too much!) I may post more later, after I've chewed on these ideas a bit.

@LilieBubble: I think my views might deviate a little but since I would still be the person that is me, I'd still think of something like this.

@anna: thanks for the read

@Latagore: lol even seemingly nonsense info can be put to good use.

@sanine: Yes I understand your concern. I am thinking of modifying that little part there as well. As one of my buddies suggested, maybe not a tendency to perfection, but what is more to settle in the right place.

@henz: pretty much. that's why I can't go about this alone and not really finish it.

@Duster: Yeah hopefully I can advance on to the next phases.
