Before we probe for clues to the God Problem, we need to equip ourselves with five tools—the five heresies. Remember the second rule of science: look at things right under your nose as if you’ve never seen them before, then proceed from there. Question your assumptions. To question your assumptions, you have to find them. And that’s the really hard part. But here are five assumptions conveniently overturned for your edification and delight. Five heresies we’ll use to crack the code of cosmic creativity.
- A does not equal a.
- One plus one does not equal two.
- The Second Law of Thermodynamics, that all things tend toward
disorder, that all things tend toward entropy, is wrong.
