You have that backwards. "True" is only true within a given system. That's why black people tend to score poorly on "white" IQ tests - because what's "true" in the white culture is not necessarily true in theirs.
My claim remains that it is you who are backwards in every post because it is you who are wrongm, but who believes there is nothing soi sharply clear that a little argument can not cloud it up.
Not every IQ Test is written. And such Tests that do not effectively measusre what is the True responses that one might make to them just fail to discern the Intelligence that exists.
You own example of a marroned island make my point quite well. The puzzle of learnuing to exist presents the "questions" which will measure how intelligent the survivor/dead man was.
But what does any of this have to do with the topic of there being some sort of startling equivalence between concepts in Buddhism and those of modern physics?
I think it could not be avoided on a thread titled, "The God Hypothesis," since Christian said, "I am the truth, the way, and the life?"
The argument that Gell-mann suggested a connection with religion also tends to bring us to examine how that might be intuitively suggested to him, though he assumed it was akin to Buddhism.
But, if our God is Truth, as certainky our species seems to have been bowing down to it, then the Father of all Truth is the ever unfolding Reality which sires it in every Frame into the future.
So, in this sense, The God Hypothesis is that Truth is our light into the world through the Science of Empiricism.
But, it is also interesting to the theologian that Intuition has discovered a Pattern to our thinking which scripture also brings to our attention, in regard to the way the "tabernacle" where we meet this "god," or Truth resides:
The argument that Gell-mann suggested a connection with religion......
What connection with religion are you suggesting? Be specific. Do you have anything beyond vague hand waving to support these assertions of yours?
Anyway for what little it matters I'm pretty sure that Gell-Mann was an atheist.
quote:"So we donít have to assume these principles as separate metaphysical postulates. They follow from the fundamental theory. They are what we call emergent properties. You donít need something more to get something more. Thatís what emergence means. Life can emerge from physics and chemistry, plus a lot of accidents. The human mind can arise from neurobiology, and a lot of accidents. The way the chemical bond arises from physics and certain accidents. Doesnít diminish the importance of these subjects, to know that they follow from more fundamental things, plus accidents. Thatís a general rule, and itís critically important to realize that. You donít need something more in order to get something more. People keep asking that when they read my book, The Quark and the Jaguar, and they say Ďisnít there something more beyond what you have there?í Presumably they mean something supernatural. Anyway, there isnít. (laughs) You donít need something more to explain something more."

That is amazing. Let's sum up your latest findings in our handy comparison table:
Quantum Theory Says
In physics, the Eightfold Way is a term coined by American physicist Murray Gell-Mann for a theory organizing subatomic baryons and mesons into octets. The Eightfold Way may be understood in modern terms as a consequence of flavor symmetries between various kinds of quarks. Since the strong nuclear force affects quarks the same way regardless of their flavor, replacing one flavor of quark with another in a hadron should not alter its mass very much. Mathematically, this replacement may be described by elements of the SU(3) group. The octets and other arrangements are representations of this group.
I can group things together by drawing triangles round them
You own example of a marroned island make my point quite well.
What if the castaway only thought that he was on an island but he was really on a peninsula and there was a four-lane super-highway only a day's march away. His lack of knowledge/understanding of the True Ultimate Ideal Reality would have no effect on how he lived his life in the reality that he thought he was in. The True Ultimate Ideal Reality is irrelevant to his reality.
E8 Lie algebra groups represent the best developed theory of continuous symmetry of mathematical objects and structures, which makes them indispensable tools for many parts of contemporary mathematics, as well as for modern theoretical physics. They provide a natural framework for analysing the continuous symmetries of differential equations.
Many times we recognize that the physical world can be described by the mathematical/logical intelligence inherent as one of our multiple intelligences. We use Logical/Mathematical Intelligence to understand the external world. Usually, we obeserve the external world and then develop the mathematics.
What we see in the case of Gellmann is that the opposite or reverse condition prevailed. He used the inherent presence of this Mathematical Intelligence in order to better observe the external world.
This triangulation of the physical conceptions we observe has been noted by others over the ages. In ancient times all of matter was assigned to the four elements. We now know most matter is baryonic matter. And we now know that the numbers of the particles of baryonic matter form a Tetractys!
" The Tetractys represented the organization of space: 1. the first row represented zero-dimensions (a point) 2. the second row represented one-dimension (a line of two points) 3. the third row represented two-dimensions (a plane defined by a triangle of three points) 4. the fourth row represented three-dimensions (a tetrahedron defined by four points) Recall that the first four planes of existence: space-time, subatomic particles, atoms and molecules can each be symbolized by a point, line, triangle and tetrahedron. Again, this is an example of how the smallest part contains the whole."
The Kabbahists (to whom I referred, in that illustration of the whole pattern that seems to be required of us as organize our concept of the Real World such as in Chemistry and now Elemental Particle Physics) also expressed "the creator of the material world" this way:
Buck Fuller called this symbol "Truth:"
Then Christ in 32AD tells us he "is the Truth, the way, and the life." He also says that even the hairs on our head are numbered.
What we are seeing in QM today is supporting evidence for this God Hypothesis that was suggested by the OP of this thread.
Any God Hypothesis would have to redefine God outside of Mythological Constructs completely.
The God Hypothesis that states the Judaeo-Christian God Designed the Universe. In their God Hypothesis this "God" is a person.
We must not confuse our conception of God, mathematically, with what god actually is. The Chgristians are right in telling us that we are not privy to a direct contact with Gad, the Father of the Cosmos. We must utilize an intermediator between our mind and what we can fathom of this God.
The "God Hypothesis" I present here is that Truth, in the form of Mathematical/Logical insights is our mediator.
