It is an explanation of why the world is the way it is and not something different.Traditional science starts with an assumption that a free-standing world of reality exists, an approach that might be called Reality First. This assumption. that there exists a world of reality that we can have knowledge of, precedes all of science. But it has the disadvantage that it cannot tell us why reality is the way it is.

The answer to that question is because that is the way reality is seen to be.In medieval times the starting assumption was that a God existed. All else flowed from that. That approach was God First. But there is another approach which is the subject of this book. It is called Logic First. Here, the starting assumption is that logic tells the world what to be.

We do not assume a free-standing world of objects sitting out there waiting for us to study, but a logic specifying what shall exist on-the-fly.Although Einstein was a realist, he respected the role of logic in the determination of reality. One example is his approach to randomness. He thought it illogical that the maker of the world, whether God or a mathematical principle, would pass some of the construction work over to an independent agent. This was particularly obnoxious when the agent - randomness - was only wheeled-in to fill some gaps.Einsteins relativity principle was based on logic.

Einstein held that, as a matter of definition, a free-standing reality cannot adjust its intrinsic reality to suit how we see things. Therefore the laws of motion ought to be formulated in an invariant way, independent of observers.

This book extends Einsteins invariance principle from matters behaviour (motion) to matters existence. What guarantees that an object remains the same thing in itself when every observation of it is different? There is a simple but unexpected answer to that question.One of the advantages of the Logic First approach is that we can now incorporate man-the-would-be-observer into the world.

The observer of the world is now logic rather than strictly man. In logic, there is a necessary separation between the observer and the observed, and that causes a problem in the traditional scientific approach. In traditional science, reality is determined by man observing things, but this means man cannot be part of the reality he is observing.

In the Logic First approach, however, the subject-object distinction is between reality and logic, and not between reality and man-the-animal. It allows man to be examined as an animal like any other animal seen to exist.Many scientific and philosophical puzzles have simple answers under the Logic First approach.

They include the problem of free will, Schroedingers cat, and the general problem of measurement in atomic physics. We also learn how our particular world is chosen from the ensemble of Many possible Worlds.In the theory described here, reality does not contain nor is the product of a deity. Nevertheless, the theory provides some intriguing insights into religion and gives plausible interpretations of dogmas that have hitherto been just so stories. The explanation of the Christian Trinity is one such insight.

Others are the nature of life and death and the logical location of man in the religious scheme of things.
