SUMMA METAPHYSICA is articulated via two formulations –
and their incorporated EIGHTEEN groups of propositions
(9 + 9 respectively).
*** Summa Metaphysica ***
an overarching and unified metaphysics
[ in Book #1 ]
[ in Book #2 ]
( 100 – 900 )
( 1100 – 1900 )
The UNIFIED FORMULATION in Book #1:
with nine Proposition Groups numbered 100 – 900:
PRINCIPA METAPHYSICA to be presented here
– with nine Proposition Groups numbered 1100 – 1900
So, in this sub-section (Zeta),
I present PRINCIPA METAPHYSICA,
â€”the second group of PROPOSITIONS of the over-arching metaphysical construct – SUMMA METAPHYSICA.
So, the Overview would be as follows:
In Book #1 (God and Evil),
the Outline Summary of the (first) nine GROUPS OF PROPOSITIONS –
The UNIFIED FORMULATION: Proposition Groups 100- 900
is introduced in section 99.00. One would most easily categorize this first batch
as-a-whole as: Philosophical/Metaphysical propositions.
In Book #2 (God and Good) here,
the Outline Summary of the next nine GROUPS OF PROPOSITIONS
– PRINCIPA METAPHYSICA: Proposition Groups 1100- 1900 –
are summarized here in ZETA. One would most easily categorize this second batch
as-a-whole as: Metaphysical propositions.
In the first book, the fleshed-out version of The Unified Formulation spans the entire PART TWO of the book.
In this second book, the fleshed-out version of PRINCIPA METAPHYSICA spans the entire PART I of the book – The Cosmic Womb of Potential. Meaning, in this second book, the fleshed-out version wraps around the SUMMARY section ZETA (here).
Note that the two Cosmic Tool Kit sections (Shelf #1 and Shelf #2) – both in this
Part I: Cosmic Womb part – deliberately – one BEFORE Principa Metaphysica – and one AFTER – are integral and key sub-axioms to Principa Metaphysica.
The orientations of The Unified Formulation v. Principa Metaphysica are slightly different – but obviously dovetail and have overlap.
The two formulations should ‘stitch together’ seamlessly.
(You will note that Group 1000 seems to be missing; The reason is that we employed the 1000 number for the APPENDICES in Book #1 [in 1988], following upon-the-heels of the Unified Formulation, for ease-of-reference for our readers. In retrospect, the APPENDICES should not have been assigned the 1000 number.)
Now, as we know, my key concept is Quest for Potentialâˆž [to the infinite power]. But the work also posits that polarities and inverses drive the cosmic order.
Furthermore, Quest for Potentialâˆž alone may be “curiouser” than it appears at first look. Indeed, I would conjecture that, going-forward, beyond the scope of this 2-volume series, and beyond the ‘tenure’ of this author, it will prove ever more fascinating and ever richer-and-richer.
In dealing with Quest for Potentialâˆž, we are dealing
with a dynamic of transcendent and approaching-Infinite power.
Now, are there powerful complementary sub-dynamics which ensemble constitute Quest for Potentialâˆž
As articulated clearly in this Book #2, I posit that REALITY parallels METAPHYSICAL REALMS. I propose that one can extrapolate missing components in metaphysics from dynamics in reality – and vice versa. This powerful concept may ultimately morph the field of metaphysics into a highly stylized and more formal field.
In any event, at the risk of ‘shocking the innocent’, (and with precedent in both Kabbalah and Eastern religions) I do believe that very direct 1:1 parallels exist between ‘intimacy’ and the primal drives of the cosmos.
In Principa Metaphysica espoused here,
I articulate how TWO complementary sub-dynamics (of Quest for Potentialâˆž ):
Quest-for-ADVANCEMENT/fulfillment – with a strong neo-masculine AGGRESSIVE component,
Quest-for-FULFILLMENT/advancement – with a strong neo-female EMOTIONAL component,
– are interlocked in an intricate double-helix cosmic dance…..and generate “creation of the cosmos” …and continue their nuanced double-helix cosmic Tango propelling the dynamic cosmos onward and upwards
â€“ and propelled forward and outwards
