Appealing to the Aesthetic Value (the aesthetic measure of existence)

The EPA has removed climate-change information from its website. That means it doesn’t really exist, on demand, right?

Using the “Chevron rule,” there is an appeal to authority; but logicians tell us that appeal to authority is fallacious. Reality does not exist just because someone in authority says so.

Authoritarian regimes — political, economic, or otherwise — “author” the truth on demand. Ironically, despite being loathed by science, because of his unscientific method, Aristotle said the truth is its own authority; and like Plato said, we can know it on demand.

Scientists agree with Aristotle’s “thesis of independence.”

According to Aristotle’s theory of objective reality, reality exists independent of the observer.

When we demand to know what reality actually is, it changes over time. Knowing it, like Hegel said, occupies space over time — which in the realm of aesthetics has a vanishing point (a naturally existing realm of creative ambiguity, having countless possibilities that have a probable existence now).

Over time, there is a natural reformulation of objective reality that, like Aristotle said, always actually exists in the futures now. Physicists have a notion of this, too, when they describe what a “natural law” is.

When something has symmetry of Charge and Parity under Transformation, we can reasonably say it is a natural law, known as CPT-symmetry.

(Articles on CPT-symmetry, in the realm of political economy and philosophy, by griffithlighton, can be found on the World Wide Web, along with a host of digital images created to conceptualize “the notion” of objective reality, existing on demand.)

I argue that appealing to aesthetic value has natural authority, existing on demand. While there is no accounting for taste, we can all agree that polluting protected public lands, for example, results in a really ugly picture.

So, in the pursuit of real, legitimate authority, existing on demand, I published the picture entitled “wildly winning by design.”

The design of a dandelion is described by science as a “random self-assembly” (see images by griffith lighton with the term “self-assembly” and “creative-random attribution”). It exists, derived, with measurable color and shape, under environmental pressure. It has naturally pleasing, symmetrical features, and despite being the bane of the suburban aesthetic, continuously reformulating the demise of the dandelion in the urban landscape, it pops-up, anyway, by design.

When Objectivists say that “things just happen,” and people who march in recognition of climate change are delusional, consider the natural aesthetic — the CPT-symmetry — of the dandelion, when formulating the probable risk, by design, in all the futures now!

(See articles by griffithlighton on the retributive value, and the on-demand attributes of the risk dimension, which I refer to as the proprietary risk.)
