Comment on this Issue


Welcome to Issue 35 of the SHAPE Journal.

I am reluctant to label my latest contribution “The Fourth
Law of Thermodynamics”, because of the absolutely
necessary context, into which such a title positions it.
The three original so-called Meta laws of Science, arose
within the context of a wholly and exclusively pluralist
and technological approach to Science. It could not be
other, as that approach was the ONLY one that Mankind
could use to attempt to both reveal and use the relations
acting within Reality.

Indeed, outside of the found-to-be-essential constraints
imposed upon all activities in that investigative AND
producing sphere, a law such as the Second Law makes
no sense at all!

It is a correct law as an indispensible rider to a pluralist
approach, which never investigates entirely unfettered
Reality-as-is, but, on the contrary, limits all investigations
to within carefully designed, constructed and maintained
Domains, without which the sought-for relations could
neither be revealed nor extracted.

The Second Law is thus a permanent, accompanying foil
to all such pluralistically derived laws. It actually makes
totally unfettered Reality into a completely dissociating
sump, surrounding the ideal Domains of all investigations
and uses.

And, the merest crack in such a fortress, will therefore
immediately begin to destroy what was so painstakingly
achieved in the purposely isolated island of interpretable

Thus the Second Law is not what it is claimed to be! It
is actually the World seen reflected in a wholly pluralist,
technological mirror.

The incongruity of a Law of Total Dissociation, without an
essential countering Law of Construction makes absolutely
NO philosophical sense at all!

How can the only way be down?

This collection of papers aims to counter the Second Law
with a proved Law of Creation and Construction.
