Universal Economics (something i'm under the impression i'm making up) Summary of title terms (my understanding): The anthropic principle: "things are the way they are because that's the only way they can be" Evolution: "Survival of the fittest" Economics: "The strong survive, resources are scarce" I think all are expressions the same principle, which is "in the now (which is always subjective (a POV is requisite for a 'now' to be established)) remains what survived". Combined with the assumption "it is reasonable to be reasonable" and "an entitity performs its function (seeks the subjective good)", I believe you can formulate the closest possible model of "isness". It seems to me that any economic model you'd try to implement would include this foundation or it would be inherently flawed. Meh. Maybe I'm just stating the obvious. I was just thinking about this stuff and thought I'd put it out there to see where it goes. I think this is a summary of where my thoughts are with this stuff now and if this is invalid I want to try to push through it. Please discuss.
