Mark wrote in a private message to me :
“M: Any conceptualization is a construction of a model. And one either does this consciously or by default, which would typically include unsupported assumptions, and unquestioned beliefs… My understanding is that you are actually imposing on reality a very rigid and extremely reductionist model: the “statistical” method, without presenting any critical analysis/justification. Granted, you have successful results using “statistical” method. But there is a huge leap of faith from your empirical evidence to your theoretical model. In fact, you do not seem to be even aware that you have got “a model”!”
My response :
Yes agreed “conceptualization is a construction of a Model” but I dont think to use a mathematical method like Statistics is implying a “model”….. you can add 2 and 2 without having a model about what these 2 stand for….
but you are right on a deeper level using any kind of tool of the mind like mathematics implies a certain concept for example even in this most simple example that there are countable things.
The Statistical method implies that you can make an “unbiased representative selection” and use it to make statements about the whole.
Dear Mark here is my question to you “Why do you think the statistical method would make a “reductionist” implication?
Statics implies only that you can count and that you can make some kind of average, CoRe is even more general as that it does not follow common statistic methods but only searches for repeating pattern in a pool of data without any assumption how this data is formed in exactly the way it is…..
furthermore the repeating pattern that are found, which I call informational Resonances, dont get any interpretation, or at least don’t need any interpretation in order to be effective healing information.
So “reductionistic” means for me that you make something more simple than it is for example :
2. Question “Dear Mark what does Reductionist mean for you and how does this apply to statistics”
Insurance companies use Statistics all the time to make predictions and they dont have to assume that for example :
1. The future is fixed
2. Humans behave like sheep and thus are predictable
3. Consciousness does not exist ….. all is just a clockwork
and still there results are useful and they can make a lot of money on it plus they can be useful in making people aware on which life-style factors possibly have an influence on important things like for example “your life expectancy”
the same is true for CoRe results…… however just like insurance results they dont give a reason why things and people are predictable.
Einstein did not like Quantum Mechanics exactly for that reason because it is basically “Statistics” and does not fit into his “Clock work” idea of the world and he said “Quantum mechanics is not a science ” WHY ? “Because it cannot make definite predictions for individuals” which is the ideal for everyone that has a “clock work” idea of creation.
