The acquisition and dissemination of knowledge is facts,
information and skills acquired through experience or education. Assumption is
a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen without proof. One
should also ask themselves what uniformities are. Uniformities is when
everything remains the same in all cases at all time e.g. 2+2=4. We assume that 2+2=4 because we assume that
it is shared knowledge. When is something
considered a uniformity? Is it when its shared knowledge? The acquisition and
dissemination of knowledge is facts, information and skills acquired through
experience or education.
Uniformities are connected with areas of knowing such as
Mathematics. Mathematics usually works
as a universal language and works as a uniformity. Mathematical induction is
when we assume that n=k but however this not true. Mathematical induction is a
special way of proving things but only in two steps like the domino effect.
Step 1 is when one domino falls and then step 2 when any domino falls all
dominos fall, that is how mathematical induction works. Mathematical induction
is useful when dealing with the proof about natural numbers. The “Principle of Mathematical
Induction” itself is an axiom of mathematics. It is a statement assumed to be
true, so it can be a building block in a mathematical system. We assume this be
true but with no concrete evidence. In mathematics, we need common knowledge to
build a new knowledge on. Like how we have all decided that 2 is equal to 2 and
that is based further maths off it. Common
knowledge is shared knowledge.
Imaginary numbers are negative numbers Negative numbers aren’t easy.
Imagine you’re a European mathematician in the 1700s. You have 3 and 4, and
know you can write 4 – 3 = 1. Simple. “darkened the very
whole doctrines of the equations” (Francis
There’s nothing that that is perfectly
circular in the whole universe Models in eco, psycho, business is all built on
uniformities but in real life it’s not really how they are In physics we assume
that planets and stars are perfectly circular, but they are not.
all the planets in our solar system are nice and round, some are rounder than
others. Mercury and Venus are the roundest of all. They are nearly perfect
spheres, like marbles.
some planets aren’t quite so perfectly round. Saturn and Jupiter are bit
thicker in the middle. As they spin around, they bulge out along the equator.
Why does that happen? When something spins, like a planet as it rotates, things
on the outer edge have to move faster than things on the inside to keep up.
This is true for anything that spins, like a wheel, a DVD, or a fan. Things
along the edge have to travel the farthest and fastest. The eight planets in our solar system differ in lots of
ways. They are different sizes. our earth wouldn’t even have seasons it was perfectly circular. although
we assume its uniformity to produce knowledge, we acknowledge that it isn’t
uniform to explain season changes counter argument again: we find patterns that
don’t exist to simplify our lives, e: golden ration or golden spiral. What we
do is we find patterns to simplify our lives
Common uniformities could be wrong. The religion
alignment of the knower may alter their common knowledge. Like the earth is round. Many
believe that the the earth is flat dispite the science that debunks this claim
or myth . The Flat Earth claims can be found in many religions spread throughout time and
geography. The idea that medieval people thought the earth was flat appears to have
spread in the late nineteenth century as a stick with which to beat the
medieval Christian church, which is often blamed for restricting intellectual
growth in the period. The myth also taps into people’s ideas of “progress” and
of the medieval era as a period of savagery without much thought.
People in Europe probably did
believe that the earth was flat at one stage, but that was in the very early
ancient period, possible before the 4th century BCE, the very early phases of
European civilization. It was around this date that Greek thinkers began to not
only realize the earth was a globe but calculated sometimes very closely the precise dimensions
of our planet.
Of course, there was much discussion about which
competing size theory was correct, and whether people lived on the other size
of the world. The transition from the ancient world to the medieval one is
often blamed for a loss of knowledge, a “move backward”, but the belief that
the world was a globe is evident in writers from across the period.
The few examples of those
who doubted it – and there were always a few contrarians and some exist today –
have been stressed instead of the thousands of examples of those who didn’t.
The following that is being presented is Buddhism, but few know how many religions truly talk of a
Flat Earth. For example, in various sects of Shintoover its history, the heavens were to be seen
either up in the mountains or across the seas, betraying the view of a flat
earth. In some Native American tribes,
the sky was seen to be like the
The list goes on. Even Hinduism has
its share of flat earth mythology, despite being in general against the idea.
Take the myth of the great world turtle (Akupara or Chukwa) that
carries the world on its back later brought to more fame in Terry Pratchet’s Discworld novels. The truth of the matter is
that almost every single religion talks of our Earth as Flat – its as simple as
that. To deny the truth of the flat earth is to deny our rich history of
religion and the truths contained within it. While some may not hold up to
modern scrutiny, or should even be avoided by the most devout of Christians,
the sheer number of points of view attesting to the flatness of terra should
not be ignored!
Its no wonder that past flat earthers like Shenton shared
the idea that these may have all come from a common super-culture. Shenton even
went as far as to realize his own world-axis of
sorts with which Jesus ascended outside of the Dome. Below we take a stroll
through a few of these world-views and cosmologies.
