In this blog I will be trying to get to the truth about what is really important in life, and to write satirically about what is not - all in my quest for The Stuff Reality is Made of.
I also write articles on Religion, History, Travel, Flying, Philosophy, Physics, Meta Physics, Natural History. Mathematics and Psychology.
You can also read my religious articles on our Christian website at www.whatafriend.co.za
Reality is made of – Part 2 – Induction - by P.K. Odendaal - July 2019
We continue our exploration of the Universe with a second postulate.
– GENERAL PROOF BY WAY OF INDUCTION IS A VALID UNIVERSAL PHENOMENON AND PRINCIPLE.
We are going to use Hilbert Space to prove this.
There is a principle in mathematics called
induction which is a mathematical proof technique. It is essentially used to prove that a property
holds for every natural number n, i.e. for n = 0, 1, 2, 3, and
problem arises from the … and so on. Is that up to ten, up to ten million or up
to infinity? If we start at counting we know intuitively that it is valid for
all integers up to infinity. The question which begs itself is: How far should
we go until we accept it as being true. In the mentioned case ten is enough for
me and a million is enough for a sceptic.
Reality is made of – Part 1 –by P.K. Odendaal - July 2019
In this series I will be exploring important
aspects of reality and explain it in some general terms. The main aspects I
will be discussing are in some way connected to general intuitive axioms which,
according to Gödel’s theorem, will not be provable in our terrestrial domain. Although
this series of articles are technical and scientific in many ways, it will not
be difficult to read and understand it for other-minded readers, as I will keep
it simple and basic.
So, after pondering this subject for over twenty
years, and although I have come to understand it only in a miniscule way and
only an infinitesimal part of it, I am able to make a few basic postulates of
the tenets of reality.

Part 12 – A poem by P.K. Odendaal – July 2019
we come to the end of our present stipend
you think that by then it’ll be grief once again? If
we do not achieve some form of reprieve For
our desire to achieve something higher Than
just to be free from some human decree Without
any gain for the price of our pain
