What is out there? What defines what is included and what is excluded? We are always underlining the discoveries as we come across them, but extra care must be paid at this moment, because should we overlook information as we celebrate, we miss the opportunity to lead into the next venture for knowing.
What can be determined? Let’s first define the idea of determination. We know that we can find x in an infinite number of equations. We can determine it. The idea of the enigma behind our axioms can be easily imagined when we consider the possibility of an equation in which we cannot determine x by the axioms we have. In other words, the rules we had for math don’t work for this “possible equation.” What do we do when we end up dividing by zero, for example?
What is excluded? This is the difficult question to determine, because as far as we can tell, there exists no rigorous way of finding the answers that we do not seek and do not know. It seems to be a dark, hazy murk that we bravely traverse through. Society makes leaps in its beliefs, going through a difficult-to-describe process in making a sound conclusion. It is almost as if we make these forms of discoveries by luck or magic.
What do we do when we find the excluded information? We have established our axioms, our “rules of life” for a good amount of time, and it has worked for many cases until this particular instance. Imagine if we had found something faster than light, it would mean returning to our roots and re-establishing our axioms. Axioms are obsolete when we cannot completely represent our world with our discrete leads.
And what are the connections to love? Love is an important aspect of life that we discover, and we determine our own axioms for our own lives alone until we come across this unusual occurrence, to which we rewrite the axioms to accommodate for the inclusion of a special somepony that we truly enjoy. Love has many connections to the process of discovering what we do not seek or do not know. Love is an experience, it happens based on the events that lead up to it, as does knowledge. In this, we can conclude that faith is not blind, but guided by intuition and the passage of time. The trick is to keep your eyes and mind open, and practice discovering what you ordinarily do not find. This will hopefully in turn help you to discover more of the pleasures of life, and provide the state of mind for learning and growing.
How does one keep her mind open? It is very common to pursue knowledge in the form of focus but there are ways to exercise your ability to perceive and derive from what is amiss. The Manner in which we speak is that a state of mind has to be assumed, where multiple sensory inputs are checked and instincts are trusted, for it is vital in finding what you are not looking for. The process is only a little easier said than done. It takes practice and observation, review and repetition.
How do we find our way in knowledge? The overwhelming factors on our stimuli are in high number. The world has so much to pay attention to, from things of alarm and danger to the adorable pictures you may browse through. Much of this noise is distracting, and opening your mind to the distractions will overload your ability to find what isn’t there. Sometimes we must discipline ourselves to tune out the noise that impedes us and concentrate on finding the details that we ordinarily wouldn’t observe.
What is out there to be discovered? Discovery leads to the development of new axioms, so mostly, you are not looking for the facts but the information you derive from it. With this you can develop new knowledge and re-establish understanding of the subject at hand.
To where does our knowledge extend? The question has been proposed more than once; what are we searching for? What is it that we seek? It could be that there is no single answer to this innocent question. The direction in which we pursue our knowledge is radial; if you were to consider all of the knowledge we could possibly have and arrange it in a circle, with the outermost rings being the most complex ideas, each ray from the center would have gaps to fill in. We aim to fill those gaps and push forward our discoveries, to make the rays bigger, to make our spectrum complete. To do this, we must reach into the unknown.
What can we conclude? There is a power to developing the skill of extrapolating new angles of views, ideas, and situations. It is not just about seeing the small or even the big picture; it’s about thinking outside of the box, looking beyond the frame, understanding how the picture connects with the possibilities outside of the representation of the world we have today. The power associated with this skill is the ability to point out how to make the picture bigger, to better encompass possibilities. It can be applied to anything, from mathematics to the arts to even this philosophy itself.
And what is the definition of pony? I believe currently that SoGreatAndPowerful is the one truly tasked with this definition, and he will provide the full and accurate answer, but from what I can determine, ponies have allowed us to unlock an insight into undiscovered sides of our own and allowed us to understand how that side of us relates to the rest of our character. With this in mind, how does our community connect in this respect? Pony is the beginning of a transition for many, and it is an outlet for that transition.
