Philosophy & Language..

 cbp0037659_t.jpg

Philosophy is written in this grand book-
I mean the universe – Which stands
Continually open to our gaze,
But it cannot be understood,
Unless one first learns to comprehend the language
And interpret the character in which it is written.

– Galileo Galilei , Il Saggiatore

    Indeed a fascinating quote. However, the very language which Galileo sees he universe written in is the scientific language which has generated many paradoxes for us today. It has now become the all-encompassing language which hides other interpretations of the character of the world.

    Just return to Galileo’s true scientific language in which also “the book of nature” is written:
    It is the language of synthetic geometry of the Ancients, on which Isaac Newton also relied, rejecting the “analysis” as the method of the “bunglers in mathematics”. Synthetic geometry will give you a true representation of the “character of the world”.
