* SUBJECTIVITY OF “INFINITE DIVINE
EXTRAORDINARIATION” *
“INFINITE DIVINE EXTRAORDINARIATION ” may be
used as
“religious DIVINE
or
as a spiritual-perfection
DIVINE;
or
as an INFINITE DIVINE EXTRAORDINARIATION
with a
RELIGIOUS DIVINE “GODHEAD”
(but one can make a strong case for a spectrum of
possibilities)
There are, of course,
innite striations of this.
Addition to Cosmic Tool Kit:
(although alluded-to in
the text multiple times,
but less formally)
••• TOOL:
* HYPER
ITERATION *
(my term)
On multiple levels,
MACRO, and MICRO,
the cosmos continuously
hyper-iterates, i.e.
All organic entities
ask and re-assess:
Given my current assets,
and given the multiple
layers

of contexts,
what is my best next move (evolvement)
– to advance both my individual Q4P
and the overall cosmic Q4P?
[How often? Unclear]
••• TOOL:
* SIMULTANEOUS OPERATION LEVELS *
The cosmos may very well be operating on multiple
levels simultaneously,
all INTERACTIVE with each
other.
a ) Potentiality-level
b ) Equation-level
c ) Proto-Metaphysical-level
d ) Metaphysical-level
e ) Reality-level
f ) Innite Divine Extraordinariation-level
Broadly speaking, presumably we are in (e)
anked by (d) and (f).
Would need a separate
book just to more fully
elaborate
on the above “quick snapshot.”
God and Good deals with these issues in this part,
Cosmic Womb.
••• SUPER-TOOL:
* ONE ORGANIC SUPER-EQUATION *
(my term)
All subjects and elds and emotions, and,
indeed, all

history past and future, are all part of our
one supra–
equation – Q4P
All elds and subjects ultimately dovetail
into the supra–
equation.
We see distinct
snippets, like, say, Biology, Chemistry.
Anthropology.
But at some point Biology connects to
the Calculus, etc.
The interaction of Quest for Potential
– at the
Genesis / Big Bang / Potential
point with, what I have
called the “Mitosis
of “0”, adds major, major complexity
into an already complex
proposition.
Nevertheless, we can
only take matters as far as is
appropriate to hypothesize
at this point.
••• TOOL:
* INSTINCT-DNA *
(my term)
Complex instinct mechanisms,
whether for SURVIVAL,
food-HUNTING, SEXUAL–hunting, MATING,
PARENTING, INTER–PERSONAL BEHAVIOR
and others,
are potentially transmittable
genetically via (hypothesized
here / what I call) INSTINCT–DNA
••• TOOL:
* RECURSIVITY IS REGNANT (RECURSIVITY REIGNS)
*
(my term)
Potential within potential
within potential.

“A carpenter needs good
tools”
– Carpenter’s union
Hypothesis:
We propose and hypothesize
the following Cosmic
“Tool Kit”
[This “Tool Kit” is key and integral to our proposed
metaphysics]
This “Tool Kit” might seem to be a ‘light’ section, but
essentially provides the
“SET of KEYS” necessary to
open the vault containing the elusive
‘Cosmic Code’
…once you examine the Tool Kit, the Holy Grail of
metaphysics is laid
bare… discern the Tool Kit – and
the construction of
the Metaphysics of the
Cosmos
falls readily into place
1,2
(sounds presumptuous enough)
(all “TOOLS” are direct
sub-components of the
overarching Quest for
Potential
)

••• TOOL:
* DIVISION into POLARITIES &
DUALITIES *
Polarities and Dualities
as well as assorted complementary
Positives / Negatives,
are the BUILDING BLOCKS
and counter-point balancers
of the cosmic order
(Articulation of this
concept whose core is
not original
– commenced in God and Evil….
The ‘spin’ may be
original, but there is,
indeed, voluminous literature
on the subject in many cultures and many languages
stretching back thousands
of years)
NOTES by KHALIL
1
“readily into place”
A: In his preamble to
Derech Hashem Moshe
Chaim Luzatto writes
that before a subject such
as this can be
mastered it must be
understood in a most
general way first.
General principles and
overarching themes are to be understood
before details are probed. Once the framework of the
subject
is made clear, one will then be able to place each detail into its
proper context automatically, and he will ”delight”
in understanding
new facts that add texture to the framework.
This work God and
Goodis written with this concept in mind.
2
“readily into place”
B: The Cosmic Womb of
Potential, and
particularly the Tool Kit, will elucidate the
general principles that are
central to the paradigm presented here. The “Master Craftsman” of
the cosmos employs
a cosmic tool kit.
Extraordinary tools open–
the–way for a potentially extraordinary construct. Examine the Tool
Kit, and you will grasp the dimensions of
the cosmic construct.

••• TOOL:
* SIMULTANEOUS PUSH / PULL TENSION *
(my term)
Masculine / Feminine
Components of the cosmos are in
DYNAMIC TENSION and/or
ENGAGEMENT
Some components simultaneously
PUSH from one dimension,
and PULL from another
realm
For example: a component may PUSH from a
metaphysical level,
while it PULLS from a REALITY realm – or
from a still
further-out POTENTIAL
realm.
••• TOOL:
* INFINITELY-COILED SPIRALITY *
(my term)
INFINITELY-COILED SPIRALITY is the favorite innity-tool
in the Tool Kit.
One can conjecture that
the specic ‘spirality’
parallels a
double-helix.
Meaning, COILED SPIRALITY
is the “cosmic highway”.
Encapsulization: The cosmos
is more like an innitely
coiled – and expanding – and regenerating
spiral spring.
SPIRALITY is closely
inter-linked with…
“BOOTSTRAPPING” (another cosmic tool, next)

••• TOOL:
* COSMIC ‘LEVERAGED
BUYOUT’ (“BOOTSTRAPPING”) *
(my term)
Leveraging (innite) POTENTIALS
down–the–road
3, 4, 5
(forward towards innity) to energize the ‘present’
A key concept positioned centrally in the
predecessor
work God and Evil, but using more prosaic terminology
here. This above–proposed “TOOL” alone could
keep
metaphysics – and physics busy for a thousand
years or so.
Encapsulization: Potentials down-the-road energize the
PRESENT (and initially
ignited CREATION itself).
••• TOOL:
* (INFINITE) RECURSIVENESS
& (INFINITE) LOOP–ABILITY *
(my term)
An entity or theme repeating within itself…..indenitely
is a key cosmic theme. For instance
POTENTIAL, as we
dene it, is recursive… i.e.
Potential within Potential
within Potential ad
innitum
Recursiveness of Quest
for Potential
:
The power of Q4P (Quest for Potential
) hinges on its
(innite) recursiveness. Like an innitely coiled
spring.
To the extent that it keeps iterating innitely outward
and

onward, it self–charges
and perpetuates its power.
Another way of looking at this is always assuming
Q4P to mean Q4P to the power–of–innity.
NOTES by KHALIL

Leverage A: “Leveraged Buyout” is a term
from finance. It
refers to a case in which a financier buys
a company using future
earnings as the collateral. For instance, a financier might offer to
pay $1 million dollars a year for ten years to buy a company. And
where, does he plan
to get the million dollars
per year? From the
future projected earnings of the company of $1.5 million dollars
a year. The financier essentially buys the
company using the
company’s own future earnings (i.e. He
buys the company with
the company’s own potential). Birnbaum is
positing throughout
Summa Metaphysica that
the original “leveraged buyout”
concept
was cosmic. The cosmos was created, he hypothesizes,
out of the
cosmos’ own potential.
4
Leverage B: Plato had infused in Western
philosophy that “God”
created the universe out
of ‘primal matter’ even
though Plato never
articulates just where
this primal matter came from
– just as he
never explicates where
”God” came from. Platonic thought
and, indeed, most Western philosophical thought – including
classic Jewish philosophy
– is linear, i.e. A created B created
C,
etc.
Birnbaum’s paradigm, on the other hand,
is ‘bootstrap’, i.e. the
potential of A ignites A retroactively. The Torah Itself has a one –
phrase all–encompassing treatise on Jewish philosophy: Eheyeh
Asher Eheyeh”. This is Potential within Potential within Potential,
which Birnbaum seizes upon as the crux
of Summa Metaphysica.
5
Leverage C: A classic theme in Jewish
thought is “yesh mai–
ayen,” the creation of
somethingness, from nothingness. This
‘magic trick’ receives
an elegant ‘makeover’ in Birnbaum’s
“leveraged buyout” theme,
namely that potentials down–the–
road ignited the cosmos.
Now, finance is not cosmology – and
cosmology is not finance, but the “leveraged
buyout” theme can
indeed be applied to both. Indeed, there is a
1:1 parallel between
the two.

239 REPRINTS OF COSMIC “TOOL KIT”
But what does that mean?
It really means innite
recursiveness,
tracking forward to the
“end of time”
~Example 1: like those painted doll–within–a–doll
Russian or Chinese dolls, where there is always
yet
ANOTHER (smaller) doll
within
~Example 2: an ONION… where there is inevitably
yet
another (smaller) layer
[carrying within itself
still other smaller
layers]
Note that there is actually a ‘double power’
to this:
First, is its innite ~spring effect.
Second is the nature of the proposed
dynamic –
whereby innitely compelling
potentialities ‘down-the-
road’, “ignite” the
present.

THE TRANSCENDENT DYNAMIC
Quest for Potential
is thus simultaneously
• a FORCE
• a QUEST
• a POTENTIAL
• the ongoing open–ended COSMOS
• the Innite Divine Extraordinariation
• the SPARK of LIFE
• the sum total of all eco–systems
• in other words, EVERYTHING as we know
it
Not bad for a dynamic.
••• TOOL:
* VACUUM–BUSTING *
(my term)
Abhorrence of vacuums on
all different levels
(metaphysical, reality and
other levels)
Vacuums – metaphysical or otherwise
– are abhorred
7
Nature abhors a vacuum.
And it presumably abhors a
‘vacuum of principles,’
as well.
So, ‘initially,’ if initially’ can be said to exist, we are
faced with a potential ‘vacuum’ situation.
NOTES by KHALIL
7
The Physical Vacuum: This ‘abhorrence,’
as it were, can be
allegorized as ‘negative
pressure.’ A vacuum exerts a ‘pull’ on
adjacent matter and
thereby seeks its own obliteration. The greater
the relative vacuum, the
greater the negative pressure, the greater
the ‘abhorrence,’ and the
more likely the vacuum is
to obliterate
itself.

The vacuum–breaker principle
was quest for a
possibility
of a principle or embryonic Quest for Potential
.
And perhaps, reacting to
a potential VACUUM situation,
Q4P then ultimately
achieves a ‘life of its own,’ feeding
upon itself, looping
around itself billions upon
billions of
times, seeking to achieve critical mass… and
eventually
apparently doing so,
rst metaphysically, and
then in full–
blown reality.
••• TOOL:

ASCENDING LEVELS
of REALITY & ACTUALIZATION & FULLNESS

CONSCIOUSNESS
– are ongoing cosmic
imperatives
••• TOOL:

(my term)
Metaphysical Realms are
not static; they are
dynamically
morphing.
The Emotional Richness
of the Cosmic Order is
not
static; it is dynamically morphing.
The Intellectual Richness
of the Cosmic Order is
not
static; it is dynamically morphing.

The Consciousness Level
of the Cosmic Order is
not
static; it is dynamically morphing.
The Reality Richness
of the Cosmic Order has
not been
static; it has morphed to this point.
Combine all-of-the-above dynamics, and you have a
symphony of ongoing morphing and ever-increasing
richness and advance.
Creation / “Big Bang”
[the Potential
Point] was
possibly at the boundary where metaphysics
“morphed” into physics,
and thus both elds
(metaphysics and physics)
are fully engaged.
We, in contemporary
times, for example, intersect
with this extraordinary
pulsating, morphing advancing
Cosmic Order at-one-specic
particular-point-in-time.
But understand that
between the time you started this
sentence and the time you nish it, the entire Cosmic
order will have
incrementally morphed.
••• TOOL:
* OPTIMIZATION *
On every level, the cosmos and its components, have
an uncanny instinctive
ability to OPTIMIZE
8
[simple and elegant
enough]
NOTES by KHALIL

Optimize: The
individual must have the patience
and decisiveness
to act at precisely the opportune time. This ability to ‘seize the
moment’ was harnessed at the Genesis Point
to create the
universe.

Birnbaum’s Theory of
Potential discerns that one
fundamental, simple formula/superlaw rules the
entirety
of the universe and, indeed, is responsible for its
very
existence: Q4P
E+. This equation expresses that
the Quest for Innite Potential drives the universe
ever
onwards towards
Extraordinariation.
What is the Quest for Innite Potential? In simplest
terms,
Q4P represents the
universal, inherent and eternal drive
for everything in the universe to seek higher levels
of
Complexication. What is Complexication (C+)? It
is
the Birnbaum-hypothesized cosmic intermediate drive
“Q4P’s handmaiden” –
maneuvering the cosmos towards
greater
complexity/sophistication/richness/variety/
wondrousness (see Glossary1000.com).
In its ongoing march of Complexication –
maneuvering
the cosmos towards increased
complexity, sophistication,
variety and wondrousness – the universe moves
ever-and-
ever closer to what Birnbaum calls
Extraordinariation (E+)
– the universal end-goal – a horizon to be
approached,
but never quite realized – and a state otherwise
dened as
hyper-Complexication.

Glossary of Potentialism Terms
Over the last quarter century (since Ktav published Summa I in
1988) the Theory of Potential has been rened. As such, it has
developed its own lexicon to describe its fundamental
principle of
Potentialism. Potentialists
dene the universal drive of cosmology
as the Innite Quest for Potential. This is the inherent “drive” of
the cosmos to seek its own ever-further Complexity. The end-
goal of this Complexity is referred to as Extraordinariation (see
Extraordinariation.com). Extraordinariation is not so much a
precise destination as an ideal goal to be sought-after, albeit
never quite fully-realized. Potential journeys towards a non-
concretized state of innite Complexity. The universe moves
inexorably towards this innite goal, giving birth along the way
to major events of increased Complexity identied
as Quantum
Jumps for the fundamental changes
in the universe they
create. [Examples of a Quantum Jump would be the emergence
of atoms from energy, the emergence of multi-cellular life from
single-cell-life]. Thus, along the way towards
Extraordinariation,
are episodic Quantum Jump events. The lexicon of Potentialism
has given rise to the following glossary:
Potentialism Potentialism itself represents a new science
for a new century. It provides an overarching
21st century
metaphysics that seeks no less than to encompass
the
scientic, the religious, the spiritual
and the philosophical.
Fully encompassing all modern science, Potentialism is
at-a-
minimum, the core
metaphysics of a (true) Theory of Everything
not only in scientic terms, but in all terms meaningful
to
humankind. Birnbaum has offered this short glossary of the key
7 terms of Potentialism to
arm those seeking an understanding

of the cosmic order with the tools necessary to have a “seat at
the table” to this new metaphysics. All are

comes back to the table from a three century, post-Spinoza
hiatus to reexamine our most fundamental
understanding of
the cosmic dynamic (see SummaCoverage.com)
CWP Cosmic Womb of Potential. This is the metaphysical
realm within which Potential, QJs,
PAs, and E+ all convene to
shape the nature and events of the universe. It is easiest to
conceptualize the Cosmic Womb as a metaphysical place
of
creation. It is, in and of itself, not a thing, but a metaphysical
space/place for the birth of things. As such, it can bring forth
to life the concept of the physical as well as the philosophical.
The physical universe is the non-abstract part of the CWP. The
CWP is often looked at as analogous to the sciences. There
is the physical sciences and
the classical sciences,
the latter
being the purely mathematical, abstract
and philosophical (see
ParadigmChallenge.com).

Q4P
The Innite Quest for Innite Potential, usually
shortened
to Quest for Potential in conversation, though the
formal
name best represents the iterative, innite nature
of Potential.
This represents the universe’s innate drive towards fullling
its
true potential. Also commonly denoted
as Q4P∞ or, super
shorthand: Q4P.

THE TRANSCENDENT DYNAMIC
Q4P
E+ The fundamental, basic drive of the cosmic
dynamic. This represents the Quest for Innite Potential which
drives the cosmic order towards greater and greater complexity
towards its own Extraordinariation and
is the core of Potentialism
(see Sequence1000.com).
As the universe inherently is driven
towards greater and greater complexity, it thus pushes it
towards the inevitable goal of Extraordinariation or a state of
super-complexity.
“0”-Point The Zero Point represents the universal pre-Big
Bang. In physics terms, it is the pre-known universe, when
all
Planck values were under
1. It was a “time”, if
such can be said
to exist before time existed, when space was near innitesimally
small, and gravity, light and much
of the rules of current
physics
did not exist yet. The 0-Point was what existed
before the Q4P
of the universe caused the Big Bang and the rst fundamental
QJ, which began forming our current universe.
C+ Complexication The hypothesized cosmic intermediate
drive “Q4P’s handmaiden” maneuvering the
cosmos
towards greater complexity/sophistication/richness/variety/
wondrousness.
Complexication seeks quantum jumps – QJs (see entry in this
same Glossary) – as opposed to incremental
advance.
In its ongoing march of Complexication the universe moves
ever-and-ever closer to what Birnbaum calls Extraordinariation
(E+) – the universal
end-goal – a horizon to be approached, but
never quite realized and a state otherwise dened as hyper

APPENDIX Z70:
Reprise
Respectfully, the
proposed Summa paradigm appears for
all intensive purposes to
be so-to-speak bulletproof vis
à vis its key assertions.
The initial exposition of
the Quest for Potential
concept
in 1988 (via Summa I) has withstood 25+ years of
global
scrutiny.
No vulnerability or weak
point has been discerned.
*
Question: Is there
another viable game in town?
*
Those insistent – for
whatever combination of reasons –
on resolutely preserving the pre-Summa status quo, have
only limited options, and
none of these are good options.
History may not treat
them overly kindly.
We respectfully believe that Summa will prevail,
because its
core themes reect the eternal realities of the cosmic order.

the key contemporary
scientic hypothesis bridge to Summa
from a secular / scientific / mechanistic perspective
All interactions between particles in the universe…convey
not only energy but also information in other words, particles
not only collide, they
compute. What is the entire universe
computing, ultimately? Its own dynamical evolution…
As the
computation proceeds,
reality unfolds.
-from the back-cover of Programming
the Universe
By Seth Lloyd, Professor,
Mechanical Engineering,
MIT(c) 2006, First Vintage Books Edition (NY)

Lloyd’s hypothesis provides key 1:1 buttress to Summa.
Indeed, “Q4P
is hiding in plain sight,” as we have
hypothesized since 1988 via Summa Metaphysica I
(hardcover), and then
via Summa Metaphysica II (2005)
so,
Birnbaum’s Q4P
resonates as a fuller
multi-dimensional
wrap-around conceptualization

APPENDIX Z67:
Contemporary Natural Selection
Theory: Mechanism & Criteria
Is there a clear and focused academic scientic
conviction/consensus on the mechanism and criteria
for Natural Selection? The answer is NO.
See two groups of excerpts from Wikipedia
First group*
a
note – this LISTING only deals with the “main
gures”
Main gures in selection debate
“Besides Richard Dawkins and George C. Williams,
other
biologists and philosophers have expanded and
rened
the selsh-gene theory,
such as John Maynard Smith,
George R. Price, Robert Trivers,
David Haig, Helena
Cronin, David Hull, Philip Kitcher, and Daniel C. Dennett.
Individuals opposing this gene-centric view include
Ernst
Mayr, Stephen Jay Gould,
David Sloan Wilson, and
philosopher Elliott Sober.”…

Proponents of multilevel selection (MLS) include E.
O.
Wilson, David Sloan Wilson, Elliott Sober, Richard E.
Michod, and Samir Okasha.
Second group*
b
21st century
Macroevolution and microevolution
“One of the tenets of the modern evolutionary
synthesis
was that macroevolution (the evolution of
phylogenic
clades at the species level and above) was solely
the
result of the mechanisms of microevolution (changes in
gene frequency within populations) operating over
an
extended period of time. During the last decades of
the
20th century some paleontologists raised questions about
whether other factors, such as punctuated
equilibrium
and group selection operating on the level of
entire
species and even higher level phylogenic clades,
needed
to be considered to explain patterns in evolution
revealed
by statistical analysis of the fossil record. Near the end
of the 20th century some researchers in evolutionary
developmental biology suggested that interactions
between the environment and the developmental
process
might have been the source of some of the
structural
innovations seen in macroevolution, but other
evo-devo
researchers maintained
that genetic mechanisms visible
at the population level are fully sufcient to
explain all
macroevolution.”

Epigenetic inheritance
“Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in
gene
expression or cellular phenotype caused by
mechanisms
other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence.
By the rst decade of the 21st century it had
become
accepted that Epigenetic mechanisms were a
necessary
part of the evolutionary origin of cell differentiation.
Although epigenetics in multicellular organisms is
generally
thought to be a mechanism involved in differentiation, with
epigenetic patterns “reset” when organisms reproduce,
there have been some observations of
transgenerational
epigenetic inheritance. This shows that in some
cases
non genetic changes to an organism can be
inherited
and it has been suggested that such inheritance can
help
with adaptation to local conditions and affect
evolution.
Some have suggested that in certain cases a form
of
Lamarckian evolution may occur.”
Unconventional evolutionary theory
Omega Point
“Pierre Teilhard de
Chardin’s metaphysical Omega Point
Theory describes the gradual development of the
universe
from subatomic particles to human society, which he
viewed as its nal stage and goal. Cosmologist Frank
J.
Tipler subscribes to a
version of this theory.”

Gaia hypothesis
“Teilhard de Chardin’s ideas have been seen by
advocates of the Gaia theory proposed by James
Lovelock, which holds that the living and
nonliving
parts of Earth can be viewed as a complex
interacting
system with similarities to a single organism, as
being
connected to Lovelock’s
ideas. The Gaia hypothesis
has also been viewed by Lynn
Margulis and others as
an extension of endosymbiosis and exosymbiosis.
This
modied hypothesis postulates that all living
things
have a regulatory effect
on the Earth’s environment that
promotes life overall.”

APPENDIX Z66:
Consciousness & Cosmos
Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-
Darwinian Conception of Nature is Almost Certainly
False is a 2012 book by Thomas Nagel, Professor of
Philosophy at New York
University © Oxford University
Press Sept. 2012
from Wikipedia
Overview
“In the book, Nagel argues that the materialist
version
of evolutionary biology is unable to account for
the
existence of mind and consciousness, and is therefore
at best incomplete. He writes that mind is a basic
aspect
of nature, and that any philosophy of nature that cannot
account for it is fundamentally misguided. He argues
that
the standard physico-chemical reductionist account of
the emergence of life – that it emerged out of a
series
of accidents, acted upon by the mechanism of
natural
selection — ies in the face of common sense.
Nagel’s position is that
principles of an entirely different
kind may account for the emergence of life, and in

particular conscious life, and that those principles
may
be teleological, rather than materialist or
mechanistic. He
stresses that his argument is not a religious one…”
from the author –
As we know, the guiding
principle/dynamic/force Quest
for Potential
is overarching, which would include its
teleological dimension. From the get-go and thru
its
end-goals, Q4P
would foster and advance both the
emergence of (mind and then) Consciousness, and
the
ever-increasing
nurturing/expansion/elevation thereof.

morphs from a Supra-Metaphysical concept-

it
is far from clear to what extent, among other key
issues.
From my perspective, it is a subject more appropriate for
a next generation of works on Q4P
if/when Summa is
used as a working hypothesis.
