The call to unite behind the science can give orientation for individuals. Technology changed society after classical science taught to describe nature in 4D meaning four dimensions using coordinates , one for #time seen as imaginary and three for space being real.
We ourselves and all living beings are part of nature. Life is part of nature and culture is part of life . Thus we should be able to comprise also art and humanities by four dimensions, because art and humanities are essential parts of culture like science.
It must be possible to identify those four dimensions in ourselves and also in any culture. The identification could be useful for development and for solving problems. Our body consists of four parts. In evolution these developed in a sequence that might have significance.
The abdomen was the first part of the body coming about and essential for assertiveness as dimension between sexuality and power. Development from generation to generation means time seen as imaginary. Thus the dimension of the abdomen can be understood as imaginary, too.
Following evolution three real dimensions can be attributed to the parts of the body. First activity and mobility to extremities, then rationality by cognition and processing to the head, and finally feeling and fitness to the upper part of the body.
Time is the main valuta measured for functions in parts of seconds or for life in generations It sometimes runs smoothly allowing meditation and improvement, sometimes it jumps abruptly requiring renewal and transition. Imaginary improvement enjoys by real building, caring, learning and thus more than by only reform, imaginary renewal frightens by real catastrophy, chaos, death, and thus more than only revolution.
Philosophy must provide imaginary fantasy and real freedom, love and thinking. This needs simple imagination and skillful. adaptive and aware realization.
Philosophy allows in modern time fuzziness and thereby can be much more helpful than strict institutions and religions. It allows improvement without heeding fixed rules and opens up unknown possibilities for dynamic creating. It even allows to feel, meditate or think what might be or come beyond dynamic and generate axioms and rules. This clearly is more than belief and should give us incentive to follow this way united between ages, gender, people and possible foes – right here, right now.
