Aim of the Project:
This project is not intended to give quick, simple
and absolute answers to basic questions. It is more an
attempt to increase our freedom of action by expanding our
thinking process to give us more choices in the ways we
describe the the world around us -and the way we act within
it (as a result of the way we believe the world to be).
Perhaps in an attempt to make it into the world we would
like it to be.
The project hopes to suggest ways of exploring old problems
in new ways. However, this may itself introduce other
(perhaps new) problems -including the problematic
relationship between concepts such as abstraction and
materialization and the interaction between
description and behavior). Hopefully, an
increased understanding of the nature of conceptual space
will help us to construct, organize and successfully
navigate the complex conceptual space that our investigation
may create. Later, we may discover that there is no clear
cut division between problem and answer -that the question
often defines the answer -and that answers often generate
Initially, this may seem quite frightening. However, as we
proceed, not only shall we experience intellectual pleasure
in constructing and navigating the maze -hopefully, we shall
also discover that our developing skills can prove very
useful in many different practical ways.
To make things simple, we shall start with the conceptual
categories listed on the main page. However, these may
change as the project develops.
Studying this process of internal, evolutionary, creative,
change is considered an important part of the project and
will be documented and exploited as much as possible.
