* 7 = 1; actually, more accurately, 1 = 7 *
No, of course it doesn’t, what could be more false? But, sometimes math can be used poetically, as opposed to technically. And, if you’ll grant me that, then maybe I’m not lying quite so blackly. Here’s why I share.
When I built The Scopelliti Line one of my parameters for each of the points I allowed onto my line was this. Each point must hold the entire method within itself, so that even if we lost all six of the other points, we’d still have an adequate system for progress. Then, (and yes, of course, Rene Descartes was my co-designer) my second parameter covered sequence. That is:
* If you have to pick which six to jettison, have it be the last six…on down the line. *
Do you follow? If you’re only going to learn about one of my points, learn, of course!, about NECESSITY.
Let me say that another way. Not only does Necessity incorporate all seven of my points, so that poetically 1 actually does = 7, if you get point 1 right, you really will get all the following six points right, too…of a necessity.
Flip it all around. Let’s call this the rule to obliterate anything that is NOT necessary. More. If you can’t prove – that is PROVE – that something IS necessary, then by default it is not…and we blow it right up! Gone.
By the rule of Necessity we will only tolerate what is necessary, absolutely, irrefutably necessary, unarguably so to the degree that we can’t even hold onto our doubts no matter how hard we try. If we doubt, we throw it out.
Give it a try!
