The Enigma of The Absolute

The Enigma of The Absolute

The thing to remember about mathematics is that it is strictly a theoretical framework for describing reality and it is not truly reality itself. Only reality is reality and a map such as mathematics can never truly be the territory. More than a few genius mathematicians have driven themselves mad and ended up in the insane asylum because they had fallen into the trap of believing that numbers are actually real, in the sense of being direct reality itself, so they could not figure out why they could never prove the perfection of mathematics, and thus the perfection of reality as understood through mathematics, using all of their tricks and theories. 1+1=2 is actually a theoretical statement of faith, and it is not a provable statement of objective truth at all, in the strictist scientific philosophical sense. Even patterns based on concepts like Pi or Phi or the Fibonacci Sequence can only be represented by numbers and the actual patterns in essential nature themselves go deeper into reality than numbers can possibly reach. The pattern itself is the pattern, not the numbers that are merely expressing it. Reality is a perfect paradox because it is always both finite and infinite at the same time, without ever being purely just finite or purely just infinite. When you start believing that numbers are reality itself and you try to prove the perfection of numbers using numbers, you come up against the paradox of reality and it will drive you mad if you are a driven genius who is convinced that the mind of God can be known through mathematics and you cannot figure out what the mistake you are making is before your sanity is gone. Reality is perfect. Mathematics is not perfect and can never be.
