This is a digital copy of the book.
No Absolutes is the first book in a series of books by Benjamin C. George which reform the way we look at the world, how our choices affect our reality, and how to apply this philosophy to your life to enable not just a more fulfilling life for yourself, but a way to understand and traverse life that enables a brighter and better future for those around you.
No Absolutes, A Framework for Life aims to erase the imaginary lines in the sand that bind us to archaic ideas, ideals, and identities and replace them with perspectives that align with the most fundamental aspects of nature. Both our own and the nature of the world around us.
What does it mean to be alive, to be human, to be you? A form of this question finds itself at the root of seemingly every aspect of society and life throughout our history. The responses to this question have propelled us to many seemingly great and terrifying levels and feats. It is one of the main motivators of communities, religions, political systems, and nations. It defines our journey through life at a foundational level and influences every moment of existence.
Yet for all our responses to this question we remain rudderless, divided, and in precarious positions at seemingly all levels of society everywhere we turn. Why?
Are these failures a feature of humanity? History repeating itself? Punishment from a magic sky wizard? God? Aliens?
Or is it something more simple and aligned with how existence, reality, and nature operate?
Occam’s razor – is a principle from philosophy that states often the most simple explanation to an event is the more likely reality.
History, industry, the sciences, and indeed seemingly all of societies nuances are replete with examples of this principle in action. Through complex actions and sometimes generations of innovation and change we continually find the simplicity in what we previously believed to be inconceivably complex if not entirely impossible.
Yet we still define much of our world through absolute’s.
This short book is an extension of this process applied universally as a simple framework that resonates with reality instead of rigidly attempting to shape it into an absolute form.
This is No Absolutes
