Interpretational Impasse Resolution

Interpretational impasse resolution

When an agreement is made based on different views of the same statement, because said statement can be interpreted both ways. This statement often contains sophistry or rhetoric, and is entirely objective.

This usually doesn’t actually solve the problem of having different beliefs, but it does solve the problem of fighting about it unnecessarily.

A: “Religion is important for morals”
B: “Religion is not needed for morals”
C: “Religion supplies morals to those with a need for guidance”
A agrees because: “Everyone needs moral guidance”
B agrees because: “People who rely on religion for moral guidance need it”

Definition of something by itself

It is inaccurate or impossible to define something by itself.

The idea

It is not accurate to define something or quantify it without other sources. For example defining the word five by saying its value is 5.

This means that when defining the universe (such as the beginning of time) by using logic contained by the universe, there is no way of telling if that is correct or not. This is because the universe governs logic.

Knowledge and Understanding

Knowledge vs Understanding

Knowledge is simply thought with evidence realized by the person. What we regard as facts, remembering past events over the long term.

However, understanding is the meta scale of knowledge, where the processes in the brain are able to interpret knowledge patterns and create new parts to those patterns. Understanding is also considered to be the product of intelligence, and what intelligence predominately does.

There are – generally – five scales of understanding/knowledge.

  1. Recall – Memory in short term; being able to recite a poem or fifteen digits of pi; “Jack London lived for 40 years”
  2. Use – Is able to recreate patterns but unable to see the reason why; writing about a quote you just read, analyzing new information that is not fully integrated into the brain as memory or other; “Jack London lived for 40 years, I think this is because of…”
  3. Knowledge – acquired arrays of memory on the long term that we regard as truth; “the earth is spherical”
  4. Understanding – Where the person interprets the idea and can actively add to it by using the meta-data from long term knowledge or nature; “the earth is spherical because gravity says so, and the proof is…”
  5. Creation – The concept is the person’s own understanding, the person accurately creates the reason why something is by analyzing all other reasons for reality to be as it is. Fundamentally reasoning the underlying logic for a thing being true; “in this other universe, the earth is not spherical and that’s because of…”

Source of Psychological Maturity


What is defined as psychological maturity?
Psychological Maturity is socialisation that occurs until approximately adolescence. It is the maturing process that makes humans able to understand what is acceptable and what is acceptable thought – not just actions. It effectively narrows down what is “normal” and changes the way the brain operates to compensate for the culture’s norms, becoming more efficient at carrying out these operations and prioritizing them.

From where is it attained

Rationally the only source of psychological maturity (not brain growth) is from the environment, meaning other humans. This is because if the brain already contained the information from the environment it would be accustomed instantly, and psychological maturity in society would change slowly if at all, and not reflect the society’s changes. Not only this but psychology over different cultures would be remarkably the same and children of other ethnicity or genetic make would be unable to change their psychological maturity by maturing in a different culture.
This also means the process itself is one similar to some parts of evolution.
