Summary—An Argument for the Children delineates a new model for educating the children based on the formulation of arguments.

 

We must follow the argument wherever it leads.

—Socrates

 

The original compact is not made with a sovereign power since the existence of such a power is the end result and not the foundation of the compact.

—Roger Scruton

 

Natural rights are inalienable—ie. even if you seek to bargain them away you cannot since they are they are not the kind of thing that can be bargained.

—Roger Scruton

 

We are compelled by reason to acknowledge the existence of natural, inalienable rights and duties independent of convention, agreement or contract.

—John Locke

 


 

The Bernoulli Form elucidates the notion of Platonic Forms in describing how a motley crew of Forms—including Delphi, forecasting, integration, utility, optimization, efficiency and complementary—come together to form The Bernoulli Model.

 

The Method of Moments elucidates the notion of Platonic Forms in describing how a motley crew of Forms—including Delphi, forecasting, integration, utility, optimization, efficiency and complementary—come together to form The Bernoulli Model.

 

The Efficient Frontier examines the notions of God, option theory, portfolio theory, faith, reason and Arab mathfinally arriving at the inescapable conclusion that all roads of sound decisionmaking lead to the efficient frontier.

 

The Unpardonable Sin charges all honourables and doctors in Canada with heresy, child abuse and the unpardonable sin that Christ spoke of—which is the deliberate refusal to follow the light when seen.

 

The Uncertainty Principle contrasts Einstein with Heisenberg, relativity with quantum theory, behavioralism with existentialism, certainty with uncertainty and philosophy with science—finally arriving at the inescapable Platonic conclusion that the true philosopher is always striving after Being and will not rest with those multitudinous phenomena whose existence are appearance only.

 

A Formal Patient congratulates Alberta Health and Wellness for insisting on the accountability of due process in declaring individuals to be formal patients—and argues that I am being considered a formal patient as the result of an absence of due process elsewhere in Canada—and that I should not be considered a formal patient but that I should be declared disabled on account of being outside the cave of behaviorism.

 


 

Singularity identifies the trigger of the looming paradigm shift from the three-dimensionally conscioused Everyman to the four-dimensionally conscioused Superman as the 1935 Schrödinger's Cat though problem—which proves that consciousness is real.

 

The Great Cosmic Accounting Blunder compares the two physical fixedpoints in the universe—lightspeed and Planck’s constant—and argues that we have been guilty of double counting up until now and that in fact there is but one fixedpoint—which, as it turns out, is the boundary of the universe.

  

The Unified Field Theory counts down the Euclidean hits from five to one in categorically nailing the vast majority of this little thing I like to call cosmic pi.  At this point in spacetime I would like to pay special tribute to my excellent wingman Albert Einstein (18791955).

 

Closing the Liars Loophole identifies the malignant cancer within the healthcare system and society as the outwardly focusing behavioural psychological model, which denies the existence of consciousness—while the inwardly focusing existential model makes consciousness and the soul primordially important. 

In an episode entitled Cause and Effect from the television series, Star Trek—The Next Generation, the starship Enterprise finds itself in a collision course with another starship that is exiting what is known as the Typhoon Expanse.  Captain Picard calls for suggestions from the bridge crew.  Commander Ricker suggests opening the shuttle bay doors so that the compression wave would push the ship out of the way.  Commander Data suggests using the tractor beam to similarly push the other ship out of the way.  The captain decides to take Data’s suggestion and unfortunately the two ships collide and explode—and then the television goes to commercial.  Upon returning from commercial the bridge crew finds itself playing poker again.  The cycle repeats itself and the two ships collide and then explode—and then it goes to commercial again.  After several more cycles the crew begins to experience a sense of déjà vu.  They realize that they are caught in a temporal causality loop and decide that the best way out of their predicament is to send a message into the next loop.  The collision occurs as before but this time the android Data punches the number three into his positronic net just before the ship explodes.  After the commercial the bridge crew finds itself playing poker again with every player being dealt three-of-a-kind.  They also find the number three appearing an inordinate number of times in the ships systems.  Then as before the bridge crew is called to the bridge where they once again find themselves in a collision course with the other ship.  Again Ricker suggests opening the shuttle bay doors while Data suggests using the tractor beam.  It is then that Data notices the three pips on Ricker’s collar and decides to take his suggestion of opening the shuttle bay doors.  Thanks to the message past on from previous loop the collision is avoided and the two ships exit the temporal causality loop.

The Piagetian Model.  The Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget (1896-1980) was best known for his pioneering work in the intellectual development of children.  He identified the four stages of child mental development starting with the sensorimotor stage that occurs from birth to age two where the child is concerned with gaining motor control and learning about physical objects.  In the preoperational stage from two to seven the child is preoccupied with verbal skills.  In this stage the children can name objects and reason intuitively.  In the concrete operational stage from seven to twelve children begin to deal with abstract concepts such as numbers and relationships.  Here the children should develop reversibility of thought.  Reversibility is the possibility of understanding arguments in reverse as well as the forward direction.  According to the authoritian model—ie. opinion based—children and adults are forbidden to utilize reversibility because the authority in the authoritian model is not subject to arguments.  All arguments are unconditionally required to conform to authoritarian opinion.  As such, thoughts only occur in one direction and reversibility is thus denied.  The final phase is the formal operational stage between twelve to fifteen years old children begin to deal with the hypothetical, develop idealism and, in the absence of reversibility, reason logically and systematically.

The Cartesian Model.  Descartes, Newton, Einstein are just a few of the great thinkers that struggled in school and were largely self-taught.  In addition to founding modern mathematics René Descartes (1596-1650) also founded modern philosophy by tearing down the medieval house of knowledge and building again from the ground up.  By employing the method of radical doubt, Descartes asked the question—What do I know for certain?—to which he concluded that he certainly knew of his own existence—cogito, ergo sum—I think, therefore I exist.  Based on the natural light of reason, Descartes formulated his famous Cartesian Model for constructing arguments which is— Order thoughts from simple to complex.  Only accept clear and distinct ideas as true—Divide arguments into as many parts as necessary—Check thoroughly for oversights—And, using reversibility, rehearse, examine and test arguments over and over until they can be grasped with a single act of intuition or faith.  Descartes rightly believed his method would guarantee certain and infallible knowledge.  Initially, one faithfully or intuitively senses truth, which is followed up by constructing rational arguments and then intuitively capturing completed arguments.  In other words, faith leads us to reason and then reason leads us back to faith.

The Theory of One.  It is well established that the greatest scientific problem of all time is how to marry relativity with quantum theory.  Relativity is the natural law of space and time and is based on light­speed.  It describes spacetime dilation in accordance with the Pythagorean Form.  For example, time for an astronaut traveling at 87 percent of light­speed would elapse at half his original rate, while he would appear to a stationary observer to be half his original height—ie. h^2 + (v/c)^2 = 1, v/c = .87, (v/c)^2 = .75, h^2 + .75 = 1, h^2 = .25, h = .50.  And then taking the dilation of spacetime to the limit, we see that bodies traveling at light­speed exist at the very boundary of spacetime.  In that, by definition, particles of light or photons travel at light­speed, we can see that relativity provides a priori reason that photons exist at the boundary of spacetime.  The quantum theory of the atom is the natural law of matter and is based on both Planck’s constant and a probabilistic wave equation.  I have solved the problem of how to unite relativity and quantum theory with my theory of one by recognizing light­speed and Planck’s constant as the very same boundary of the spacetime continuum.  I further argue that even if my theory of one is wrong, it is still effectively right because it sets forth the pathway to truth—which is the question of how to unite relativity with quantum theory.

Declaration of Kingship.  The Divine Right of Kings is an ancient doctrine which states that sovereigns represent God and thus derive their right to rule directly from God.  According to the doctrine, which I found in Microsoft Encarta, sovereigns are only responsible to God and are not subject to secular limitations.  The doctrine was supported during the Renaissance by the English Royalists against the Parliamentarians, who believed that political power arose from the will of the people.  But in Canada we know that the sovereign holds no political power, and thus the Parliamentarians—ie. the Government of Canada—have no grounds for opposing the doctrine.  Furthermore, neither the existing sovereign nor the Supreme Court have grounds for opposing my claim of sovereignship in that I am replacing an ineffective, symbolic sovereign with an effective, divine sovereign.  Therefore, in exercising the Divine Right of King’s doctrine, I, Christopher Bek, acting under the legitimate agency of God and having demonstrated my morally superiority, lawfully and rightfully claim My Kingship and sole Sovereignship to the Sovereignty of Canada.  My contention of lawfulness is based on the fact that my theory of one unites the laws of nature—and that the Godmade laws of nature trump the manmade laws of society.  My contention of rightfulness is based on, among other things, the fact that my essays simply and clearly delineate overwhelmingly important ontological truths.

Realization of Christhood.  Special relativity revealed that space and time dilate as a function of velocity relative to light­speed in accordance with the Pythagorean Form.  In 1982 three Frenchmen named Aspect, Dalibard and Roger performed a monumentally important experiment which established empirical or a posteriori knowledge that all photons in the universe are instantaneously connected to one another.  Moreover, my theory of one recognizes the Form of boundedness as the underlying mathematical or a priori Form which, when combined with the empirical or a posteriori validation of Aspect-Dalibard-Roger, enables us to arrive at the incomprehensively profound a priori knowledge that there is only one photon in the universe.  Lastly, by rightfully identifying the lone photon as Eve from the story of Creation, I have both proved the existence of God and have established an eternal, divine connection between myself and God—thereby irrefutably establishing myself as God's legitimate agent—ie. Christ.

Four Arguments.  I am putting forth four arguments for the children.  Firstly, I solved the theory of one—which unites relativity and quantum theory by recognizing that light­speed and Planck’s constant are the same boundary of the space­time continuum.  Secondly, I have proved myself to be the Sovereign by the Divine Right of King’s doctrine which states that sovereigns represent God and thus derive their right to rule directly from God.  Thirdly, by rightfully identifying the lone photon as Eve from the story of Creation, I have both proved the existence of God and have established an eternal,  divine connection between myself and God thereby irrefutably establishing myself as Christ.  Fourthly, I present an argument for the children such that we must base our society on the method of argument rather than on opinion, as it is now.  This change must occur if we are to make forward progress.

Conclusion.  A geologist friend of mine argued that we only have a hundred years of Godmade fossil fuel remaining. The universe began fifteen billion years ago—and it is going to take us less than two hundred total years to use up all the Godmade fossil fuel.  Albert Einstein (1879-1955) once said that no problem was ever solved by the same mind that created it.  I am putting forth four arguments that the government must answer to.  If the government chooses either not challenge or not accept my four arguments then they are acting in bad faith.  I would argue that we must pass on the method of argument to the next generation.
