Continuing my quest for a description of existence, I have taken a look at the very basics and attempted to formalize some conclusions – as usual in the form of a WOIM list:
Potential Realization [1,x] Existence Cause Consideration Effect Influence #Existence Common reality = Intersection of existences Consensus reality = Co-considered effect [2,n] Cause Consideration Co-considered effect Influence #'Consensus reality'
In even plainer English, this means: There is a potential which realized becomes existence. Existence is comprised of Cause which through consideration creates an effect which in turn influences the Existence. From this we get the fractal nature of the universe.
Common reality is simply two existences overlapping (intersecting), while a Consensus reality is an agreed-upon existence, or more precisely “co-considered” effect, again with the fractal nature of the effect influencing back at the Consensus reality.
This WOIM list condenses the essence of my article “On Will“. It is very far from a formalized description of the basics of existence, but it may serve as a starting point.
I would appreciate feedback (but please read the above referenced article first); Is the list correct, and what are the next steps in making it more complete?
