Intuitive Logic

An example of intuitive logic is the expansion of space over time.

Modern physics tells us that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate. Space is expanding over time. Since there is no reason for things to keep accelerating, space itself must be expanding, which challenges the intuitive logic that space over time is simply the measurable distance between two or more objects (with nothing in between but the measurable difference in space). This shifts the paradigm of what space actually is.

The shift does not mean that space is not defined by the distance between two objects but that space itself is a measurable object. Here is where Kant describes the knowable unknowable.

If space is a measurable object then beyond the edge of the universe there is no space because there is no objective measure of it (no differential). What “exists” then is the intuitive knowledge of space with no measurable things in it, which is to confirm that we measure space by how long it takes to get from one object to another.

“If you can’t measure it, it doesn’t exist” is counter-intuitive if it logically exists without measure, yielding to the unknowable knowable.

In the world of physics it doesn’t really matter until we have to maybe determine where we are without having anything to reference it–which as far as we know does not exist!

In the world of political-economy what is at the edge, and how to reference it (know it), is real and NOW. Determining what the natural world is occupies our space, and what that actually is can be described as intuitively logical and thus measurably existent, passively aggressing with no resistance to occupy our space, over time, which is always now, in priority.
