Back to the ancients to find the future of science

Now Machines

Now Machines

Traditional sciences deal with predicting the future from the past or inferring theorems
from assumed axiomatic truth and so forth. The standard preoccupation is with the a
priori and a posteriori aspects of reality and the relationship between the two. An
alternative synthetic scientific paradigm follows the path of the ancient Greeks and
explores the non-dualistic position of the Parmenidean world in between. Things in the
future and the past do not objectively exist. only what is present now objectively exists.
Traditional science is thus diachronic in nature; the alternative and complementary
synthetic science will be synchronic, anchored to the immediacy of the subject’s
nowness. Everything changes. However, the Now never seems to go away. In fact, it
starts to take on the allure of a universal invariant, always there, never absent no matter
what the situation.
