Postulatfri Universalhypotese:

Universet eksisterer i form av energiomsetning


Enhver energiomsetning krever en forskjell og skaper en forandring.

Energiomsetning er betinget av differensialer (potensial, tetthet, ladning, mv.), dvs. likhet medfører stillstand og død…

Enhver forandring genererer informasjon som noen ganger kan observeres. (Tom Stonier (1927-1999) hevdet at informasjon er en egenskap ved universet på linje med energi og materie…)


Energiomsetning skjer i henhold til  termodynamikkens lover

All energiomsetning foregår på molekylnivå; alle andre nivå er emergente fenomener.

I levende vesener foregår energiomsetning i celler som er den minste enheten av liv.

Energi kan ikke observeres eller forstås, slik at årsaken til forandring alltid er ukjent, jfr. Kraftpostulatet


Effekten av energiomsetning kan være brutal, og den ukjente årsaken kalles ofte Gud.

Insh Allah (Islam), May the Force Be With You (Star Wars), etc.



De fleste fenomen er emergente, dvs. de kan "forklares" på utallige måter (emergenshypotese 2). Det kan bety at kausalitet kun er menneskeskapte ideer, jfr. Hypoteser, postulater, vitenskap og religion  

Universalhypotesen ble nok først forstått av Heraklit(540-480BC) (4 Important Facts about Heraclitus, the Ancient Greek Philosopher, the Collector, 2022-12-11)

Det finnes likevel noen områder som framstår permanente

Mennesker lager ord og begreper for det ukjente, og dermed kan man danne hypoteser og teorier som forklarer det ukjente i form av kausalitet. Matematikk er et kraftig språk for å beskrive teorier, bl.a. fordi det er et ekspertspråk som kun det innvidde presteskapet forstår…‽

Alle slike hypoteser og teorier vil være selvoppfyllende, og dermed like gode, beroende på tvil og tro…‽

For alle emergente fenomen er det uendelig mange hypoteser som alle er like gode eller dårlige;

enhver hypotese har en motsatt og like god hypotese…‽



For every fact there is an infinity of hypotheses.
Robert M. Pirsig (1928-2016)


Min Postulatfrie Universalhypotese har et implisitt postulat: Det finnes noe som kalles energi

Ingen vet hva energi er, og jeg godtar at universet ikke kan forklares på noe nivå under energi…‽

Energi er den ukjente kjendis; alle snakker om energi, men ingen vet hva energi er

" God is the efficient cause not only of the existence of things, but also of their essence.

Corr. Individual things are nothing but modifications of the attributes of God, or modes by which the attributes of God are expressed in a fixed and definite manner."

Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)


"Every visible and invisible creature is an appearance of God."

John Duns Scotus (1266-1308)


"We do not know what God is. God Himself does not know what He is because He is not anything. Literally God is not, because He transcends being."

John Duns Scotus (1266-1308)


"Nothing is lost, nothing is created all is transformed. Nothing is the prey of death. All is the prey of life."

 Antoine Béchamp (1816-1908)


"The quantity of force which can be brought into action in the whole of Nature is unchangeable, and can neither be increased nor diminished."
Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894)


One of the greatest achievements of modern science was, that it proved the indestructibility of energy through all the ceaseless transformations which it undergoes in the universe.
Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921)


"The life contest is primarily a competition for available energy."
Ludwig Boltzmann (1844-1906)


I believe in Spinoza's God, who reveals Himself in the lawful harmony of the world, not in a God who concerns Himself with the fate and the doings of mankind..."

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)


Information is information, not matter or energy.
Norbert Wiener (1894-1964)


Living forms are not in being, they are happening, they are the expression of a perpetual stream of matter and energy which passes through the organism and at the same time constitutes it.

"Higher, directed forms of energy (e. g., mechanical, electric, chemical) are dissipated, that is, progressively converted into the lowest form of energy, i. e., undirected heat movement of molecules; chemical systems tend toward equilibria with maximum entropy; machines wear out owing to friction; in communication channels, information can only be lost by conversion of messages into noise but not vice versa, and so forth."
Ludwig von Bertalanffy (1901-1972)


"The enormous usefulness of mathematics in the natural sciences is something bordering on the mysterious and there is no rational explanation of it."

"It's nice to know the computer understands the situation, but I would like to understand it too."
Eugene Wigner (1902-1995)


"Life is God's novel. Let him write it."

Isaac B. Singer (1902-1991)


The universe gives birth to consciousness, and consciousness gives meaning to the universe.

John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008)


"it is not unreasonable to imagine that information sits at the core of physics, just as it sits at the core of a computer"

John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008)


"The fundamental process of physics is computation universal."

Edward Fredkin (1934-2023)


The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent, but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.

Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999)


For every fact there is an infinity of hypotheses.
Robert M. Pirsig (1928-2016)



"Energy is the master resource, because energy enables us to convert one material into another. As natural scientists continue to learn more about the transformation of materials from one form to another with the aid of energy, energy will be even more important."
Julian Simon (1932-1998)



The answer to the ancient question 'Why is there something rather than nothing?' would then be that ‘nothing’ is unstable.

One possibility is: God is nothing but the power of the universe to organize itself.

Lee Smolin



Energy is the only universal currency: one of its many forms must be transformed to another in order for stars to shine, planets to rotate, plants to grow, and civilizations to evolve.

Vaclav Smil



"Everything is underlied by energy. As I always say, there is no economy, there is only energy conversion. Money is only a very imperfect way how to measure energy flows in society. So what happens is we got this supercheap energy — both the fuel, and electricity, and the food energy."

Vaclav Smil



God is so far away that no one can say anything about him and that’s why all ideas about God are wrong, and at the same time he is so close that we almost can’t notice him, because he is the foundation in a person, or the abyss, you can call it whatever you want
