Scientific Depiction of Liberty

  1. Jun 11, 2006 #1
    A home provides secure place, within that place, he or she is secure and has the liberty he or she needs. Outside of it however, he or she is less secure, unless one makes a home out of part of the surroundings.

    So, yes, we need a home to be secure, and the home needs to protect you from the elements. When we have a home, we are free. The larger our home, the more we are free.

    It's one thing to have a home, and another thing to have a prison. A prison mainly removes potential from the individual, but a home mainly provides one with potential. The home is not just a house, but everything you need in order to live.

    Liberty is potential and not actions themselves.
    Security is protecting this potential, preventing it from ruin.
    Freedom is the exercise of liberty.

    We should have right to liberty wants as long as they do not interfere with liberty needs. Security must increase in proportion to liberty needs, in the same way a ship needs to be strengthened if it’s going to displace more water.

    Annihilation of other people's potentials, is not justified, but nullified by restoring those potentials to their original state.

    We do not have the means to restore all potentials, and for this, we need a justice system.

    A sense of security is a capacitor of liberty. The liberty contained within in this sense of security is proportional to this sense, and inversely proportional the level of the ability of others to exercise their own liberty on this capacitor of liberty, for the more efficient this capacitor of liberty, the more stubborn it is, and thus the more liberty it has. It is more massive. A united world is one that does not short circuit, that is to say, capacitors are neither overfed or depleted, that liberty can be exercised equally by all, with tolerable amperage. The larger the capacitor of liberty, the more liberty must be exercised against it in order for it to lose security.

    Liberty can be exercised to animate others or to make inanimate. One may have the freedom to bring life or the freedom to destroy, much like how we may exercise our freedom to increase the speed of a vehicle, or to decrease its speed - to either encourage or discourage flux. The effect that liberty has on this flux depends on which way it comes from.

    Multiplication of life requires the capacitance of liberty to increase, assuming that everyone shares and remains the same amount of liberty after birth. To exercise this liberty enables us to modify the environment, this is called freedom. However crudely or intricately we do this, freedom is still involved. Our freedom depends on the number of liberties we can exercise during a given period, that is to say, liberties per unit of time. That determines our power, or freedom. Each of us is one unit, possessing a finite quantity of liberty, which we can express at various levels of freedom. An average share of liberty among the entities of a set is determined by liberty of a set divided by the number of entities in that set.

    Liberty is potential, but freedom is animate. Freedom times the interval of time determines the work being done. When no more liberty is exercised against something, what is in motion stays in motion. That is until a time when an object cancels the work which was done. Such an object, like all objects, has a capacitance for liberty, whose freedom depends on how fast it exercises its liberty to maintain posture. Liberty and inertia are proportional. The net work done by liberty, if positive, is progress, and if negative, regress. Progress means that the capacitance for liberty has increased. Regress means that the capacitance for liberty has decreased. The aim of civilization is to prosper, and such a goal is a target. This goal is a high capacitance for liberty. The only way to increase liberty when the average share of liberty is a constant is to increase the number of entities possessing liberty, which means, to grow.

    However, by overpopulation, liberty to regress stalks over liberty to progress, thereby decreasing the average share of liberty, because a finite region can only have so much liberty. Therefore, in order achieve a greater liberty, some of the population may decide to go somewhere else to exercise their liberty where the idea is to progress, that is, to increase the capacitance for liberty, without bringing down the average share of liberty, by exerting a net work on materials possessing less liberty than themselves, materials with which they can create capacitors for liberty.

    For capacitors of liberty to create capacitors for liberty from materials lacking liberty themselves, a net work, or progress is required, that is to say, assembly. Inanimate materials do not possess any liberty other than their inertia and their chemical, nuclear, and their other natural "potentials". Capacitors of liberty that can create capacitors for liberty must have a sense of direction in order for the positive work, progress, to be achieved. Chemical, Nuclear, and other "natural" energies of a capacitor of liberty can make progress that is characteristic of their geometric differentiation, that is to say, the matrix of freedoms of which their liberties are being exerted (the entanglement of many coriolis forces of which they express). However, to have a sense of direction, the capacitor must be arranged in such a way that it possess the freedom to exercise liberty an a manner sensitive to the environment is influencing it, for if and only if does not respond to materials in any unique way, then it is nothing other than an inanimate object capable with no more liberty than other capacitors for liberty in the same pool.

    Hence, capacitors for liberty which are not liberal enough with its surroundings cannot adapt, progress, or evolve without influence from the outside, the physical equivalent of adding mathematical constants after integrating. And so, the analog of the bounds of such of an integral would be that of the variables of the environment. However, for each integration, different bounds are necessary along with the necessary constants. Through each integration in each environment, the bounds vary as do the letters of passwords mixed with backspace, home, end, and arrow keys which are all equivalent to a final password. Also because of such bounds, a capacitor of superior liberty is able to make use out of its surroundings and integrate itself in a new environment, with different bounds. There must be some superiority that such capacitors of liberty have over the environment so that it can grow and reproduce, so that the net work achieved leads to the increase of capacitance of liberty from one generation to the next. Growth demands liberty over the surroundings. Superior Liberty, therefore, is essential for the progression of life.
