Complexity in the universe & in life.


 Where does the complexity found in our and every universe come from?

Ultimately, all complexity derives from the fact that there are TWO correct answers to the square root of one, unity. This delicious paradox shouldn’t exist. That the single most important unit for science, philosophy, reasoning and logic cannot be relied on for a straight answer is fundamental to the existence of the dichotomies, contradictions and, I believe, the mysteries of the world.
The effects of the simple two-part answer are obvious as nature takes account of the two opposite solutions. We have light & dark, right & wrong, good & evil, love & hate, for example. In fact life is full of these opposites as observed in ancient times and written as in the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes 3 which states that ‘there is a time to be born and a time to die, a time to sow and a time to reap’, etc up to, ‘a time to love and a time to hate and a time for war and a time for peace’.
The opening line of the bible says: ‘In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth’, to my mind a clear reference to the duality of the universe.

But, there is more. This simple solution to why we have choice, say, is not sufficient to explain the greater complexity of the universe including life. The DAVIES HYPOTHESIS,
States that: the universe, its creation and evolution is ordered in the way that it is because nature has to take into account all the correct answers to the question: what are the fourth roots of one, unity?
By adopting this hypothesis it can be shown how the universe came into being and why and from what. This explanation of why the very two-faced character of the number one is fundamental to explaining the universe and can be summed up in mathematical notation as follows:

In the simple analysis there is only 'one. However, nature adopts the solution that gives many options.
Is this an example of design and demonstrates the reality of a designer? No, because nature or God cannot be before something emerges from the absolute nothingness I refer to as the pleroma. This 'something' is a  manifestation of nature's prerogative  to express nothing as a positive/negative balance as demonstrated by the two valid answers for the square root of one. In this respect nature can be equated with the TAO, claimed to be the source of all being yet without being itself.
