Before continuing from a prior post, let me remind you that the iterative nature of the ULA will result in books containing a true history of the periodic universe. Every true detail, every true idea, every true thought, every true event-as-happens will be written down somewhere in the Universal Library. I’m not authoring a blog post about a human author writing a true historical book. Rather, I write about a purely mathematical construction repeated indefinitely, which then writes the contents of the Universal Library’s books. That fact remands the contents to being true where there is an “a priori/a posteriori necessity.”

Consider everything else suspect. Interesting! But suspect. So how do we locate such a priori/a posteriori necessities? 

I return to the (vital) idea that a reader of historical books written by the ULA can determine if the book in hand is true, even if the historical matter is about future events. Make no mistake that there will be at least one book in the Universal Library that will detail future events. Which one? And how will you know?

We have already viewed in prior posts a landscape of two Great Patterns, which by themselves could be true (of course, but could and will just as easily be false). Together, they have the opportunity to be a Decidable Event (DEx) that is going to be true. The sun rising in the morning in the East is just such a DEx. However, there are at least two logical levels of Decidable Events. One happens because that is the next event, purely logical and yet coincident (DEx). The second level event, however, is: 1) true and 2) must occur; coincidence gives way to statistical certainty (DEfx). Whereas we could say that this morning the sun rose in the East with certainty, that it is true and obviously must have occurred, how so can we say the same of tomorrow’s sunrise with equal certainty? In other words, there is at least one book in the Universal Library that will tell you truly what happens tomorrow at the time the sun is supposed to rise. You can count it to happen just the the algorithm wrote it.

Returning to patterns now, the two Great Patterns that converge generate a Grand Pattern, and its action of converging is a Grand Convergence. Acting alone, each Great Pattern that happens to converge with the other is a First Level DEx. It is when the two Great Patterns act upon the other to/that cause(s) the convergence that the DEx then becomes certain, inescapable, eternally-decidable.

  1. The Universe As It Is: natural finite agreement at each 'n'; e.g. 3" sphere; Box #47; John.
  2. The Universal Library Written: infinite agreement at every 'n'; i.e. "John places 3" sphere in box #47."

The coincidental convergence of the natural finite agreement at each 'n' with the infinite agreement at every 'n' constructs Decidable Event 'x'. The self-generating convergence of the natural finite agreement at each 'n' with the infinite agreement at every 'n' constructs Fixed Decidable Event 'fx'.

How many such fixed points are there, one might wonder. In another post, I will author the process.

Quite Literally Yours,
