The Questions of Existence
by James Jaeger

The Interrogatives

What are interrogatives? Questions, these very instruments of inquiry. Unfortunately, Homo Sapiens is so interested in answers that the primary tool he uses to arrive at answers, questions, is hardly analyzed at all.

Could the reason the sciences are Circular Logic Systems be that the very instrument of our enlightenment is circular? What is a question and how should we presume their purpose and effectiveness? Are interrogatives at all useful? Is there a replacement for interrogatives? Why does one have to use an interrogative to even analyze an interrogative? Is something is wrong in Heaven!

The purpose of questions should be, by means of human or artificial intelligence, to reconcile and align all written and observed data about the environment generated by Homo Sapiens since at least 5,000 BC in order to:

1. Assimilate all written considerations of Homo Sapiens into a manageable data base ("EarthDat").

2. Use EarthDat to provide answers to previously unanswerable questions.

3. Provide a prioritized list of Questions that must be

a) asked, and
b) answered in order for EarthDat to Answer all Questions that have been asked. (See The Qs and the O's).

4. ULTIMATELY ANSWER - The Qs - The Questions of Existence and hopefully the major Q which is - Why are there Questions?

It seems to me that the question of why are there questions is more senior than the question seeking the answers to existence.

Why is it that as our knowledge expands the number of interrogatives we have does not expand? This is fishy to me. This makes me wonder if it is not the interrogatives that caused the expansion of knowledge and if this expansion is not bogus to a greater degree than we suspect.

I would like to hope that there are far more than five interrogatives. If we had more media in which to frame a question, perhaps we would understand more about existence. In other words, we are limited by the questions we can ask.

The Anatomy of a Question

But first, the Anatomy of a question must be examined. What is a "question?" This is weird because one is forced to use the very entity being examined to examine the question of what a question is. This is an indication that there is something lacking in Homo Sapiens's logic or his communication systems or both or something else.

In infinite existence, it seems Interrogatives are used to build points of Agreement. The Questions are:

Who is a living entity marker. It specifies an organic arrangement of molecules known colloquially as a person or "Being." The difference between what and who is velocity. It is assumed "Who" is the primary question as one needs a "Who" to invent and ask the rest of the Qs. Perhaps questions are only an irrelevant by-product of a phenomena called Life.

What is a descriptive marker for finite or infinite entities that may exist.

Where is a location marker. It specifies the universal coordinates of a "what."

When is a time marker. It specifies an exact snapshot of some aspect of existence as related to some other snapshot of existence.

How is a method marker. It specifies the development of a given causality. It is a navigation. How is an expression of: I don't know, but I sure would like to! It is all the interrogatives built into one.

Why is a result marker. It specifies the finished outcome of a given causality. It is the essence, and prerequisite, of the phenomenon of agreement. It answers the reason for everything and in fact - is the very reason the interrogatives exist in the first place.

EarthDat might answer the Q's by addressing the Interrogatives in the above order.

EarthDat will have to assign "difficulty" parameters to each Q starting with the types of interrogatives currently available which are: WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHO, HOW, WHY.

Q Axioms

Every Question is a result of one or more Questions.

Every Answer is a continuation of at least one question.

The opposite of an Answer is not a Question.

The opposite of a Question is not an Answer.

Opposites only exist by definition or through the Circular Logic System.

The Qs

All of the above replacing each Q with the other interrogatives WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, HOW, WHY. To wit:

  • Who am I?
  • What am I?
  • Where am I?
  • When am I?
  • How am I?
  • Why am I? . . .
  • Who is a possible "or"?
  • What "or" is possible?
  • Where is "or" possible?
  • When is "or" possible?
  • How is "or" possible?
  • Why is "or" possible?

The Expanded Q's

The expanded Q's are all the Q's plus all the Q's that have not been asked yet. Thus the most long-term relevant question that a sentient species can ask is: What Q's have we not yet asked?

The Applied Q's

Using all or part of the Expanded Q's, we can get to work asking questions about existence while not missing too many of the questions that need to be asked. For if the questions are not defined and asked, there is no possible chance one will gain understanding except by accident or after protracted amounts of time wandering around and down illogical chains of question-thought.

As an example:

Are there no two things in the physical universe that are exactly the same?

Does everything in the Universe have one and only one identity?

If two things that are identical do not exist in any one given Universe, is it sufficient to know only the identity of the thing to know its location?

Are two "identical" things only similar if for no other reason than the fact that they occupy different spaces?

Is space caused by the reluctance of any two objects or things to be identical?

Is Space (S) a product of Identity (I)?

S = I2


S = I x I

Is Space is equal to a given mass multiplied by itself?

I = square root of S

Is the square root of space mass?

If E = mc2 and
F = ma (because energy exerts force), then

E = F or
E = kF where k is some constant, and

mc2 = ma or

c2 = a does
c = the square root of a

hence, is the velocity of light the square root of an acceleration or,

a = F/m and,

c = square root of F/m

whereby the velocity of light is inversely proportionate to the mass of an object yet proportionate to the square root of the force it can exert at the speed of light, c?

Is there a relationship between the prime numbers and the mandelbrot set?
