Making a correlation is a statement about what the truth is.
Descartes’ dualism is 4700 years away from the first known uses of the geometric proof; and despite the logic of the proof, Euclid’s geometry was later found to be, well, not exactly true.
For the analyst, what is important here is that the geometer discovers the limit of absolute truth. The parallel postulate, for example, is not true if space is actually curved over time. So, using formulas “figured” to the added identity element of space over time, we can actually land on a comet and discover its real properties rather than speculate about it like Aristotle did.
In nature we see parabolic, non-Euclidean geometrics in operation which have a practical effect. It is a highly efficient way to store information, for example, like we see with the DNA molecule, or the way the brain is folded to fit self-awareness (knowledge of the universe) between our ears.
With the advent of the scientific method (which does not rely on geometric proof but empirical confirmation) we are so smart; but when it comes to political-economy we are so stupid!
We keep making the same mistakes over and over again. Is it some kind of absolute truth–an elemental identity–like Euclid’s geometry, or is it really more parabolic?
(Like I’ve been telling you, we have the innate capacity to know the futures now. The identity is there, we just need to add it!)
It is possible to yield to an exact confirmation that naturally coordinates with the proof–the geometric utility–that figures an effective correlation on demand.
