THE WORLD SPIRIT - Part 1:

A Seven-Level World View

Binary Code

In the year 1697 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz wrote about the binary representation of numbers:

"Zu Beginn des ersten Tages war die 1, das heißt Gott. Zu Beginn des zweiten Tages die 2, denn Himmel und Erde wurden während des ersten geschaffen. Schließlich zu Beginn des siebenten Tages war schon alles da; deshalb ist der letzte Tag vollkommenste und der Sabbat, denn an ihm ist alles geschaffen und erfüllt, und deshalb schreibt sich die 7 111, also ohne Null. Und nur wenn man die Zahlen bloß mit 0 und 1 schreibt, erkennt man die Vollkommenheit des siebenten Tages, der als heilig gilt, und von dem noch bemerkenswert ist, dass seine Charaktere einen Bezug zur Dreifaltigkeit haben." [Cited in: Wikipedia "Dualsystem"]

"At the beginning of the first day was the 1, that means God. At the beginning of the second day was the 2, because heaven and earth were created at the first. Finally at the beginning of the seventh day everything was already there, therefore the last day is perfect and Sabbat as everything is completed and fulfilled and therefore the 7 is written 111 hence without zero. And if you write the number only with 0 and 1 you realize the perfection of the seventh day which is considered as sacred and of which it is remarkable that its characters are related to the trinity." [Translated by the author]

At a different place he continuous:

"... Denn einer der Hauptpunkte des christlichen Glaubens ... ist die Erschaffung aller Dinge aus dem Nichts durch die Allmacht Gottes. Nun kann man wohl sagen, dass nichts in der Welt dies besser vorstelle, ja gleichsam demonstriere, als der Ursprung der Zahlen, wie er allhier vorgestellt ist, durch deren Ausdrückung nur und allein mit Eins und Null (oder Nichts) alle Zahlen entstehen. Es wird wohl schwerlich in der Natur und Philosophie ein besseres Vorbild dieses Geheimnisses zu finden sein. ... Das kommt hier um so mehr zupassend, weil die leere Tiefe und wüste Finsternis zu Null und Nichts, aber der Geist Gottes mit seinem Lichte zur allmächtigen Eins gehört. Wegen der Worte des Sinnbilds habe ich mich eine Zeitlang bedacht und endlich für gut befunden, diesen Vers zu setzen:

Alles aus dem Nichts zu entwickeln genügt Eins (Onmibus ex nihilo ducendis sufficit unum)."

[Cited in aus: Wikipedia "Dualsystem"]

"... Whereabouts one of the main points of the Christianity ... is the creation of all things from nothing by the almightiness of God. Now you can possibly say that anything in the world can imagine this in a better way than the origin of the number as demonstrated by which only one and zero (resp. nothing) suffices to describe all numbers. It would be hard to find a better example of this secret in the nature and philosophy. ... All the more it comes to the right term because the blank deepness and deserted darkness is related to zero and nothing but the spirit of God with his light belongs to the omnipotent one. Because of the words of this allegory I have considered a while and finally found it to be acceptable to set the verse:

For all to spring from nothing, a oneness suffices (Omnibus ex nihilos ducendis sufficit unum)."

[Translated by the author]

This citation describes the idea of the first level of the "Seven-Level World View" in the best way.

Of special interest are following two characteristics:

First: The origin of the binary code which consists of nothing and one can be found in the universe. It is emphasised by the words "For all to spring from nothing ..." as the universe could be thought as all or as nothing or as all and nothing. It is not necessary to find an analogy to Christianity as Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz did because today we do not need a proof of God's existence anymore. How the origin of the binary code in the universe can be understood in detail is up to the imagination of the reader. As entry into the world view the binary code could stand for itself even without any explanations as the circle of all levels is completed not until the seventh level.

Second: The binary code contains everything which is necessary to explain the world from a human perspective. By means of the binary code the universe can be described as characters and numbers can be represented by zero and one. An international norm for a character encoding with 8 bit is for example the ISO 8859. Such a system sets the basis for the attribution of meanings. Zero and one generate characters, characters generate letters, letters generate words, words generate sentences, sentences generate information, information generates scientific studies, studies generate the fundament for acting. And this has nearly anticipated the transfer to the next level already ...

Result: The origin of the binary code can be found in the universe. The binary code suffices to explain the world.
