Why does the universe work?

 

Because it is logical!

 

 

---

 

Very short intro

 

The universe must be coherent else it falls apart.

This means that everything in the universe must cooperate.

To achieve this every thing must have something in common with every other thing.

This common element is what links everything into coherence.

This link must be so simple that it works with even the simplest thing.

The simplest link between all things is a common basic logic.

Therefore,

 

what unifies the universe and everything in it into one unified field is a common basic logic

 

A basic logic can be visualized.

The optool is the means by which the common basic logic of everything can be visualized.

The OP Tool

 

 

This is not a scientific paper or experiment, this is the description of a tool.

 

How is a science structured, a project organized? How do you assess something quickly but properly? These are often tedious tasks. This tool simplifies this work by applying a basic blueprint with a standardized set of coordinates that fits all sizes and shapes. It structures and organizes entities, projects and concepts quickly and efficiently. Its design is reduced to its most basic which makes it versatile, easy to handle and intuitive to understand. When applied correctly the result is a complete and clear organigram of whatever it is applied to.

 

The tool will show you the structure of things like a roadmap shows the structure of a landscape. Like a map it will not tell you how many tiles are on a certain house or how many trees grow in a certain forest but same as a map it will tell you exactly where the house and the forest are and thus help you navigate easily. And since the map is always using the same convention and label placement you always know exactly where you are.

 

I've compiled all the main texts about this tool in the e-book downloadable below. Some texts from the first draft I've omitted here because they were only intended to illustrate how the tool can be used creatively but some readers mistook them for scientific essays and to avoid this confusion I deleted them.

 

This is the beta version and I need your advice, criticism and help to correct and refine the text for the final version.

 

 

How it originated

 

Over the years I noticed that engineering and project management had not only certain recurring patterns, but that they had some of them in common and that understanding these patterns had a number of rather practical advantages. For example could I apply a certain pattern from the one to the other if I adapted it accordingly. Or a familiar pattern in the one would help me with a problem in the other. We all know these occurrences and I decided to research them more thoroughly. Over time I noticed that some patterns were so basic that I found them literally everywhere so I simplified each one down to its most basic and in the end one basic pattern emerged that could be used on all entities, a sort of universally valid virtual modular framework.  Since this pattern adapted quite naturally to most anything I called its set of rules the organic principle. From this principle I developed this tool.

 

 

Plain English

 

If the tool's description was written by a physicist it would be written with a physicist's vocabulary and hardly no one outside physics would understand it. Same for a biologist or a chemist or a gardener for that matter.

 

But it's a very basic tool that should be understood in all fields. And the one vocabulary that is understood in all fields is clear, plain English. When I had the choice of two words I would always chose the simpler one. Someone said it reads like a student's work. Which is actually fine because English at that level, if done properly, is the perfect mix of vocabulary and precision of expression for general reading. Whereas if it was written on the level of a scientist its vocabulary would have become too specific to be understood by all. I believe the resulting text is clear and unambiguous even if I am aware that this may at first make it look somewhat simplistic.

 

 

Experimental errors

 

I have done my best to ensure that the explanation and the illustration of the tool are error-free. But the examples surely have errors, if only because I cannot be an expert in the forty something fields or entities I used for illustration and I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has spotted an error.

 

I also try to show how this tool can be used creatively or productively. Some of the fields I apply the tool to I know practically nothing about and the examples may have their  errors but if you were a scientist and you would know a principle from your science that could be applied to another science, would it really matter to the scientists in the other field if you made mistakes in the examples if the principle was valid? What they would be interested in is how your approach could help them and not what errors you may have made in a field that is not your specialty. And that is how the examples here should be seen. Interpretive errors in the examples can still be corrected before the final version.

 

 

First application

 

Once you understand the basics of this principle you can already apply it to most anything in view for a quick idea of how it works in practice. I have added examples for training and experimenting.

 

One of the advantages I find most practical is that it allows me to efficiently assess a project or an entity within the shortest time when before this may have taken me days and the result was often less complete. In that sense it is quite like arithmetic, not something that you need to constantly think about but that you use quite intuitively all the time nevertheless, even that you can push it to extremes when necessary. Or consider a  craftsman who can combine his skills and experience to quickly assess a project at a glance but can also use the same knowledge to plan any project to the smallest detail. This tool is the mental worker's equivalent. Whenever you want to assess something quickly this could be your tool of choice. With some training your mind will quite intuitively work out how this, this and this module applies to whatever you want to assess or structure and it will give you quite a complete and near instant view of your subject, open to further refinement if necessary.

 

It will not replace expertise or computers, it will not render anything obsolete or replace anything, it simply helps to better understand how something is structured or what one is planning.

 

It is a tool I believe you will find most practical. But it is still something of a prototype and I need your advice to polish it into its final version so your help would be most appreciated.
