Mathematics Has Peaked

Referencing the thread on Evolution and
Purpose I declared that the theory of Natural Evolution is most
accurately described simply by concepts, by ideas, by sentences and
relationships, not with formulas or any kind of mathematics at all,
indeed the use of Mathematics would render the theory less accurate,
less precise, more vague, would essentially render the theory more
false. This is an interesting case where the Myth of Mathematics, the
idea of having Complete Control over how Matter behaves by applying
Equations, Differential Equations, Probability Formulas and so on and
such can get us "Closer to the Truth", closer to "Understanding" and
closer to containing an issue within our mind is finally exposed,
mathematics is revealed as totally false, not applicable, not relevant,
as using the wrong instrument to explain something, etc.

And
actually the use of Mathematics would render the theory less correct and
less precise since even if you could have all of the exact formulas and
sequence of events that lead from Molecules to the First Cell to the
End Result of a Man Brain, even if you had all of the Mathematics
precisely correct and such (something I doubt possible), it would be
useless, it would be just a random case of formatting just one sequence
of events to the utmost precision, but wouldn't reveal anything at all
with regards to the true nature of the sequence of events and namely
that the events are totally casual, random, disconnected between each
other, are not formattable at all, cannot be decoded in any logical way
at all, and indeed mathematics hides the real nature of what is going
on, falsifies reality by pretending that it abides to something that has
Formulas or Repeatable Patterns when this is not the case at all, even
if they are discovered in just that one case of natural evolution that
we managed to decode, those formulas would not have any general meaning,
any deeper meaning than being just casually applicable.

But this
brings me to the general idea that mathematics, as an instrument to
further understanding has mostly Peaked, has finished delivering what it
could deliver, etc. The three body problem can't be solved, most real
case applications of Differential Equations cannot be solved
analytically and precisely, with closed form formulas, most of what
could have been decoded and discovered and used by applying mathematics
has been achieved, we are now left with a few breadcrumbs left to
discover and use.

And it is significant, especially the use of
Supercomputers that try to simulate Protein Folding or the Weather or
any other natural events by applying the Laws of Physics and the
Differential Equations, that no matter how many "Operations per Second"
the Numerical program needed to describe and format a phenomena
mathematically (and notice especially the fact that we always have to
revert to Numerical Methods and Approximations, a truly definite
declaration of defeat on behalf of mathematics, the myth of mathematics
exposed even though no one notices this) the results of understanding
and the possibility of control and manipulation of phenomenas is always
very little anyways.

The fact that we have now reached 10^15
operations per second to describe protein folding for example shows just
how much the use of Mathematics to describe nature is at the End of the
Road, Has Peaked, is mostly over, it is a declaration of defeat bar
none. And wouldn't we have so many new discoveries and applications if
the natural phenomena even followed those equations and those programs
etc. ? Why such a huge diminishing Returns (but we always like Large
Numbers) ?

If mathematics were really describing protein folding
we could have expressed it with a few lines of computer code and a few
thousand operations per second, it would have been clear that
mathematics corresponds to reality, but instead we have that no matter
how many billions of operations per second we perform, we never reach
anything.

Because as all things that came from the 20th century,
the great leap forward of Science and Technology, we thought that that
progress could go on forever, and mathematics was mostly applied to
machines, electronics, to rockets and missles and so on, and in this
case all of the possible use of mathematics has been perfected and
explored, but when dealing with natural phenomena such as the weather or
earthquakes or predicting the exact shape of a mountain range or the
exact shape of a cloud or the exact shape of the next wave in an ocean,
mathematics fails miserably. And so also mathematics will end up in the
dustbin along with the Myth of Innovation and the End of Moore's Law
and all other mythologies on the never ending progress of a science that
has mostly ended discovering and has mostly peaked.

And of
course, this may be because mathematics may always be simply a rough
approximation of something that is infinitely deep and detached from our
possibility of understanding, etc.

And in fact most of the
really important and new theories will be composed of ideas and concepts
and sentences without any use of mathematics, just like the theory of
Natural Evolution, the application of mathematics would render all of
the new science less precise, less correct, more false, mathematics
would lead the theory to actually be less precise, less accurate, less
true and such. And we will have trillions of new theories made up of
concepts and symbols and complex relationships and arrangements of
symbols and new inventions of new words etc. And even new comic book
mathematics that are complex and weird and crazy and such.

Of
course, I may be wrong and some "New Mathematics" (or better still some
New Way of Formatting and Manipulating the Corresponding Associated
Symbols Assigned to Chunks of Reality) may actually make us solve the
three body problem, solve all of the differential equations that don't
have exact analytical solutions, solve how to predict the shape of the
next cloud precisely and such. I doubt it though, I am waiting, and most
of all I think that it would be useless anyways, since the future of
Science and Technology is in the path of inventing new Worlds, inventing
new Minds and Brains, Inventing New Laws of Physics, not discovering
what some random nature gave us just for the heck of it, we must create
our reality, invent how it works, not discover how it works.

And even LOGIC HAS PEAKED, be crazy invent new sciences everyday, invent the craziest things, who cares if it is true or false...

l’imagination au pouvoir. Immaginazione al Potere. Power to Imagination, or may Imagination have all of the Power...
