9780761861461: Metaphysics of Infinity: The Problem of Motion and the Infinite Brain

Since the time of the Greek philosopher Zeno (fifth century BCE), our faculty of analytic understanding has failed to comprehend motion through the ages. The reason is the paradox or contradiction associated with motion. One fundamental contradiction is the conflict between the finite body and the infinite divisibility of the unit distance ab. Indeed, how is it possible to move from a to b if we must first pass through an infinite series of sub-distances in one instant? How can we traverse an unlimited series—a series without limit—yet reach its limit?
Because the heart of the problem is the conflict between the finite and the infinite, its solution depends on reconciling this contradiction and transforming this reconciliation into the founding principle of motion. Having accomplished these two things, this work investigates the sweeping consequences they have regarding the geometric form of the physical universe, the Aristotelian ontology of the physical body, the nature of our finite brain, the finite analytic paradigm of empirical science and the meaning of our technological acceleration.
This book will appeal to a wide range of readers with interests in the logical mechanics of the physical universe, the hidden powers of our finite brain, and the utility of robots in the future. Although some of the presentation requires the understanding of elementary mathematical equations, the argument is conducted at the deepest level: that of principles. This approach enables readers to follow the book’s reasoning without technical training on the subject.

About the Author :

Ion Soteropoulos is an independent researcher, philosopher, and scientific metaphysician. She was born in Greece and studied philosophy at the University of Paris, where she founded the Apeiron Centre (AC), a philosophical organization. Her research interests include the nature and organizing principles of the physical universe, the human brain, and the meaning of our accelerating growth. This book is the result of thirty years of meditation on the nature of motion and its associated contradictions in light of Greek Ionian philosophy.

Review :

A work of impressive and original scholarship, Metaphysics of Infinity: The Problem of Motion and the Infinite Brain is an informed and informative study that is especially recommended to the attention of anyone with in interest in the logical mechanics of the physical universe, the capacity of the human brain, and integrated role of robots and artificial intelligence in the future. An understanding of elementary mathematical equations is required to fully appreciate the principles upon which Ion Soteropoulos has founded her presentation. An extraordinary and seminal contribution, Metaphysics of Infinity: The Problem of Motion and the Infinite Brain is thoughtful, thought-provoking, and highly recommended for academic library collections.
