Metaphysics of the Computer - The Reality Machine and a New Science for the Holistic Age
1992 0-7734-2302-8
The Oral and Written Traditions were founded on distinct discursive technologies by which knowledge could be expressed. With the advent of computers, a new discursive technology becomes possible, a radically different epistemological paradigm which, in turn, will pave the way for a new kind of science - the science of totality: holistic science. This new science will elaborate the a priori shapes and structures to which both reality, and knowledge of reality, must accord. Some of the elementary structures and principles of this unifying science and its tool - the Reality Machine - are sketched out in this book. These fundamental building blocks of knowledge are mostly unearthed from the sacred works and the esoteric sciences of antiquity. The book illustrates the concepts with examples in economics, physics, religion and computers.
