QO provides a radically new perspective on mathematics. In QO, mathematics develops like anything else, as a set of interrelated quantum systems. This leads to profound insights, none of which are new, but few of which are generally accepted.

  1. Mathematical truths are contingent, rather than eternal. Some mathematical statements are neither true or false, but have the truth value 'undefined', at least for now.
  2. Only finite mathematics is sound.
  3. Only mathematics which can be constructed is sound. Concepts that refer to themselves cannot be constructed and are therefore unsound.  'Reductio ad absurdum' arguments prove nothing.
  4. Mathematics which manifests itself in the universe can be trusted, because the universe cannot contradict itself.


Start your examination of QO mathematics by looking at:

  1. The mathematical phenomena which a theory of everything should be expected to account for
  2. The QO view on mathematics
  3. The influence of mathematics on our understanding of the nature of natural order
