METAPHYSICS OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
PHILOSOPHY OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
Primordial Realm Hypothesis
At the ‘beginning’ there was not “nothing.”
At the “beginning” there was
“layer upon layer of pure Potential/Possibility”
– whatever that precisely means.
Call it “metaphysical possibility.”
Call it “the plentitude of possibility.”
No matter what the precise jargon, it was “Potential/Possibility.”
Only ‘Potential/Possibility’ can bona fide be hypothesized by the metaphysician to have been eternal.
It is the sole term/theme/concept which works. Period.
It is simple – and it rings true. To me.
We then layer-on Extraordinariation to fill-in the paradigm
– as Potential/Possibility alone is too diffuse.
Quest for Potential∞ ultimately aims for Extraordinariation.
A theologian can now peg-off the above and hypothesize
– that God is the embodiment
But as a (putative) metaphysician, I would just keep it simple:
At the “beginning”
– there was “Potential/Possibility”
