*** PROPERTARIAN REASONING: SPECTRA ***

THREE POINTS MAKE A TESTABLE LINE
THREE POINTS MAKE A TESTABLE TRIANGLE.
THREE BEHAVIORS CREATE A TESTABLE ANALYSIS

PROPERTARIAN REASONING:
i) TAKE A CONCEPT,
iii) “FIND THREE POINTS”.
iii) Then FIND LIMITS.
iv) Then FILL IN BETWEEN THEM.

1) The Unknown Known is as Problematic as the Unknown Unknown.
– Known Known
– Known Unknown
– Unknown Unknown (things we can’t imagine)
– Unkown Known. (Metaphysical assumptions)
(Truth Table: Known vs Unknown)

2) Escaping Reality: Humanity Escapes the Present.
– Westerner Civ – Heroism, Change, Future. (Aristocracy, Stoicism )
– Eastern Civ – Duty, Harmony, Past. ( Historicism and ritual )
– Magian Civ – Submission, Obeyance, Otherworldly(monotheism)
– Denial Civ – Disconnection, Internalism, Excapism. (buddhism)
(Truth Table: x=future vs past, y= fantasy vs escapism)

3) Causes of Metaphysical Assumptions
(population density and climate hostility vs means of farm production)
(Also value of individual human life in north/sparse vs south/dense)
