A new quantum logic: An interesting question raised
Did we or did we not uncover a broken symmetry in the previous post?
What we see there grows out of the asymmetry of the fundamental polarity (yin/yang) which arises at the 1-dimensional stage that breaks undifferentiated wholeness in two. That asymmetry presents again at the 2-dimensional stage of the bigrams but I think does not yet give there the appearance of a broken symmetry. So what makes this very same asymmetry appear to be a broken symmetry at the 3-dimensional stage of the trigrams? Can there be something about broken symmetries in general that we are misinterpreting? Are they sometimes due as much to bias of the conceptualizing mind as to the actual workings of nature?
I don’t have the answers to the questions raised here. But I reserve the right to have schlocky ideas. I have my fair share of them. Frequently the good ones grow out of the schlocky ones. All things are grist for the mill. Have you not noticed?
I need to think on these matters more.
