Kate's Story

Frankl's Laws of Dimensional Ontology:

The First Law of Dimensional Ontology: One and the same phenomenon projected out of its own dimension into different dimensions lower than its own is depicted in such a way that the individual pictures contradict one another.

The Second Law of Dimensional Ontology: Different phenomena projected out of their own dimension into one dimension lower than their own are depicted in such a manner that the pictures are ambiguous.

  1. This is a wonderful page. 2 simple laws with profound implications for the way we simplify life to one dimension or one perspective.

  2. Thank you very much, Daniel. If you found this post interesting, then I would encourage you to look for Episode 22 - Interview with David Hallowell - to be posted in a few days. That episode will deal with the philosophical background of dimensional ontology in greater depth.
