Happy is the man who finds wisdom, for her profit is better than gold. Long life is in her right hand; in her left are riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called happy. Proverbs, Old Testament.


There are trivial truths and great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true.- Niels Bohr

            What examples have we got of great truths and their opposites? First it is necessary to focus on the concept 'Truth'. In the New Testament Jesus Christ told Pontius Pilate that '[I] came into the world ... to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to [my] voice' whereupon Pontius Pilate asked 'What is truth?', but did not wait for an answer. So, it appears that as far as Pilate was concerned, 'Truth' might have been a jest, and at best, a murky issue. Surprisingly that appears to be the view that is being held in Modern Physics as it is firmly based on the concept of Chaos. But then if the existence of Chaos is a great truth then according to Bohr, so is Order and it holds the same fundamental position as does Chaos. So, an even greater truth must be a state of Balance between Order and Chaos. But, does this state of Balance also has its own opposite? Not if that balance is voidal as the Void is its own opposite just as the numerical zero is both positive and negative and is the point of balance between positive and negative numbers.

            So, how do all these relate to the above Old Testament proverb. Wisdom has the character of Void and both these are beyond all descriptions, and the proverb is a very sincere attempt to convey the mystery of this singular state.

            Although Void in itself is 'empty' (of descriptions and attributes), in application it is limitless. What does this last sentence means? The best that can be done is by recourse to physics and mathematics; tensor inner multiplication and tensor addition (more of this later).
