Nothing. Whatever you say.


Given the apparent order of galaxies, the solar system and the systematic appearance of nature and the physical world, how, in your view, was the universe created?

Not easily. But don't you think we are going a little far afield?

That's allright. Reason is the primary cause of the universe.
Seems a far cry from Locke's empiricism and Locke's form of realism, but it is a sentiment which I empathize with.
Does reaon, imply intelligence?, mind?, god? and thus does
"reason is the primary cause of the universe" mean idealism and theism?

@Pythagorean,
Seems to me that man is the synthesis of Truth and "truth." His Truth is transcendental, the structure of his mind. His "truth" is dialectical, incidental. The strange thing is that Truth is engendered by "truth." The transcendental is revealed dialectically. (Triangles and trinities....)
