(What It Really Is when it probably Isn’t)
What is the spread between the real and the actual, or the risk-variance hypothesis.
(Notice that “below the thesis”–which is the hypothesis to be tested, demonstrated, or shown to be trending, on demand–is the natural identity of the argument that forces us to accept what obligates us to, or actualizes, the value of the truth. Immediately there is a reduction to philosophical argumentation on just exactly what disambiguates the real value of knowing the truth, which is epistemology.)
The truth is often discussed as a trending “phenomenon.” Phenomenologists say that reality (like beauty) is in the eye of the beholder, which is what gives it truth value, or objective identity. Something may be regarded as being the truth because it is fashionable, which has coercive value without having the sense of actually being forced to accept the appeal of its popularity (its natural authority) on demand.
Force of the argument usually reduces to its useful value, or its utility.
Epistemologically, science, for example, explains that we do not really know what most of the “stuff” in the universe really is. What it “actually is” then (its “objective identity”) is an effective model.
(The effective model is a phenomenology of the mind, Hegel said. It intends to a useful value rather than to the pure knowledge of it, which is its self, which Kant described as intuitive knowledge of the unknowable phenomenon–or the noumenon. The real is fully converged with the actual, forming a natural singularity to which we are all categorically obliged, imperatively, no matter what we may otherwise attribute to it).
Einstein, whose image is the icon of science, liked Spinoza’s concept of objective reality. While there may be a measurable difference between good and evil, they really measure the same thing.
There is a natural, holistic identity that religious doctrines tend to express as being nothing profane, which is an expression of complete, absolute tolerance (like Pope Francis advocates): existing measurable space, over time, resisting absolutely nothing at the margin of an otherwise empty (arbitrary) existence (being and nothingness).
Ask any artist and they say it’s not “what is” that’s the inspiration for creative expression, but what isn’t, on demand.
The trending ambiguity, always being now, actualizes the variable risk, existing at the margin (yielding to the profit) on demand.
Aggressing the passive resistance on demand, it’s really a free market, after all, isn’t it!
