Can Life Only be Understood Backward?

An MIT researcher quotes Danish theologian, philosopher, poet, social critic, and religious author Søren Kierkegaard’s (1813-1855) statement of “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” A statement that reeks of the miscomprehension of nature’s truth, the theory of relativity, and the manmade proxies we derive from the infinite exploration of said truth.

As I explain in Learn To Think, new normalizations of truth discovered by man are merely proxies to nature’s 17.2 billion-year-old existing normalizations. Meaning, nature’s hindsight yields infinite human foresight, and after validation of proof becomes human hindsight. Nature’s hindsight yields human foresight with the help of the infinite study of nature.

Ergo, life can only be better understood by living forward, its newly discovered normalizations eradicating the validity of outdated normalizations of truth from living life backwards.

The sign of a vibrant, innovative nation is its willingness to pursue the ever-unfolding discovery of nature's truth and reinvent itself continually against those proven new normalizations upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
