METAPHYSICS OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
PHILOSOPHY OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
There are many intersection points, but the two
treatises are radically different, if not diametrically opposite at the core:
Spinoza posits a coldly impersonal core unifying dynamic;
I posit a fiery all–pervading advancing dynamic and consciousness.
Spinoza holds GOOD and EVIL to be relative
I hold them to be objective and distinct.
Spinoza discerns no ultimate purpose to the cosmos;
I do – Quest for Infinite Potential/Extraordinariation.
Spinoza does not grant Man any special place whatsoever in the universe; Summa does.
Spinoza posits a thoroughgoing deterministic universe
(i.e. that absolutely everything that happens, occurs through the operation of necessity).
I certainly do not.
Randomness, Emotion, and (total) Free Will are key components in my Metaphysics. Ultimately, Quest for Potential∞/Extraordinariation layered-over Randomness, Emotion and Free Will – is iterative as its key component, and not overarchingly deterministic.
Both works do have in common, however, an emphasis on an interlocking cosmic lattice-work.
