A strange patter in what we call everything unvieled. What do you think?

What do we mean by everything? We simply take the phenomena we know of and list them. We have time, matter, language, and so on. The full list looks like this:

Digits, geomtrical figures
Mathematics
Patterns
Dots
Lines
Space-time
Energy, Matter
Gravitation
Universell
Nervimpulses
Expreiance
Motivation
Impressions
Scales
Categories
Symbols, Words
Grammar
Thoughts
Tones
Rythm
Music
Genes
Laws of Evolution
Development
Counciousness
Communication
Society
Memes
Laws of evolution
Development

I argue that these thirty phenomena is what the universe and our minds are built up of. Please make your own list if you do not agree. Some of them really are questionable but for now we will make this our premiss.

So this is all that exists. Now the question is can we find a pattern in this list that can help us in any way? The answer i we sure can. It looks like this and there is also a general law that governs it:


General law: Several unit of whatever sort must always have a relation to each other and from the units together with the pattern an emergent pattern is generated.




Universal structure




1 Mathematical level


Units: Digits, geomtrical figures

Relation: Mathematics

Pattern: Patterns




2 Space-time level

Units: Dots

Relation: Lines

Pattern: Space-time




3 Material level


Units: Energy, Matter

Relation: Gravitation

Pattern: Universell




The structure of conciousness


4 The Experiance level

Units: Nervimpulses = The units that produce pain witch probably is the original feeling

Relation: Expreiance = originally the experiance of pain but as time goes other feelings are added

Pattern: Motivation = What makes us do something rather then nothing




5 The Categorisation level

Units: Impressions = information from our senses

There is not room for the next five levels here so to see them please watch this short video

    I think your classification is like re-inventing the wheel...
    But I encourage you to think on it, and try and learn about it in a deep level.

    I think entropy (the one used in thermodynamics and in Information theory) with the laws of matter (elementary particles) and space-time are sufficient to allow for all the other levels to exist, making them redundant as separate phenomena... but as emergent from the others...

    (not that I have the answers though)
