The Role of Paradox in Self-organization,
An Interpretation of Wave/Particle Duality
The Structure of Fundamental Truth
The holy grail of physics is the future discovery of a theory that would unite all the forces of Nature into one mathematical principle - a Theory of Everything for the Universe. The attached paper presents the argument there can be no such thing. Paradox is identified as the fundamental mechanism that prohibits this. What should be discoverable as singular fundamental truth, the meaning of everything, categorically breaks down, and gives rise to dualism as fundamental. Beyond the subjects of physics and mathematics, the same applies for all contexts to the nature of "universal meaning". Paradox is the mechanism behind the natural dualism we find in all things.
Since the dawn of critical rationalism, when considering what is infinite, we have made one universal assumption that falls short.
We have assumed that there are no limits to human information and knowledge.
Now, with the great advances in our science and critical thinking we are lead to draw exactly the opposite conclusion.
The paradoxes that arise, naturally, in all infinite systems are not anomalies.
Rather, paradox is the critical formative element that makes possible the very existence of observable Universe and all that is contained within it.
The Universe is a sea of complexity that opens to observation not in the form of singular truths, but rather as a dualism of perspectives in each view - across which paradox is the mechanism.
