Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: The Rational Martial Art
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a fascinating martial art to me. It is a martial art that is entirely concerned with leverage, technique, economy of motion, and efficiency. Every single technique in BJJ has a reason for its existence and every technique was designed to be able to be performed by any human, regardless of size and/or strength.
I first discovered BJJ in 1996. This was three years after the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) aired on Pay Per View. The UFC was a sort of martial arts laboratory where all of the different hand to hand combat systems could be tested against each other in a neutral environment. When all of the experiments were completed, one martial art proved to be much more effective than all others. That martial art was called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. So, it was the UFC that was most responsible for introducing the world to BJJ.
The UFC wasn’t how I first found out about BJJ though. In 1996 I hadn’t yet heard of the UFC even though martial arts were my obsession at that time. I had recently earned my second degree black belt in Butokukan Karate and was beginning to get the urge to expand my martial arts knowledge. Karate is a striking martial art, i.e. it is a martial art that focuses on disabling an opponent through punches, kicks, knees, elbows, etc., and I had been practicing it for the previous ten years.
Though I greatly enjoyed practicing all of the various techniques of Karate, I was beginning to get bored of them. There was also another problem with Karate that my mind wouldn’t leave me alone about, namely: Karate didn’t teach any techniques that could even be considered remotely effective for when a person is tackled and thrown on the ground by an aggressor. Another way to say this is that I was starting to realize that I had no idea what to do in a grappling situation, other than to flail around on the ground like a maniac. To my way of thinking, a True warrior needed to know how to defend themselves in any situation, whether on the feet or on the ground.
So, in 1996, as a second degree black belt in Butokukan Karate and eighteen years old, I chose to look for a new martial art to study along with Karate. I set out in search of a martial art that would teach me how to fight properly in a grappling situation. Little did I know, the martial art I would find was BJJ and it would change my life.
I wasn’t sure what martial art I was looking for when I first began searching in 1996. I had practiced some Aikido when I was seventeen which led me to gain an interest in Judo. I knew that Judo focused a little bit on grappling and ground fighting submissions so, with that in my mind, I began to look for Judo schools in my area. That is when I happened upon a school in Littleton Colorado that taught Judo and a weird martial art I had never heard of called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
I signed up for these classes and was immediately hooked, particularly with BJJ. BJJ was the most amazing martial art that I had ever seen. I was completely blown away by it. I had only planned to supplement my Karate with some grappling training, but when I began to study BJJ, that all changed. What I found in BJJ was a martial art that was so detailed, so well thought and planned out, that I could no longer focus on anything else. I had to learn everything that I possibly could about this amazing martial art.
What blew me away the most about BJJ is, as I mentioned above, every move had a clear and specific purpose, a clear and specific reason for why it was done one way and not another, or why it was used in a particular situation over another technique. Every single move in BJJ played a vital role in the overall objective of defending yourself from an attacker. Moreover, the instructor of BJJ learned all of these reasons and could easily and logically impart them to the students. All of the other martial arts I had studied up to that time were filled with moves that no instructor could justify with a good reason, moves that were overly complicated, impractical, and sometimes downright ridiculous. Many martial arts were also mired in what I can only describe as an almost religious mysticism. They would make outlandish claims that were laughable to me. All of this nonsense was refreshingly absent from BJJ.
BJJ was what I had been looking for in a martial art. At that time, in 1996, I didn’t understand what it was that attracted me to BJJ so strongly. I do now. The reason I fell in love with BJJ is because it’s a logical martial art. BJJ gave me the tools to logically break down and analyze all aspects of a fight and come up with precise solutions to any and all hand to hand combat problems. I knew that if I studied BJJ properly, it would protect me in a fight because it would allow me to know precisely what to do in any hand to hand self defense situation.
Beyond my own personal self defense and development as a warrior, BJJ, being an intelligent martial art, also allowed me to teach it to others precisely and efficiently. It allowed me to be certain that the self defense techniques I was teaching to others would truly help them in a life or death combat situation. As I said, BJJ is a rational and logical martial art, meaning that it provides its practitioners with logical and certain answers to all self defense problems. The precision, efficiency, and certainty of BJJ is a nice example of what reason and logic provide when applied properly to any human undertaking.
The Answer To Existence
This brings me to a question: Is there anything on this planet that can provide us (i.e. humanity) with the CERTAIN and PRECISE explanation to existence in the same way that BJJ provides us with CERTAIN and PRECISE explanations to combat situations? Here’s another way to ask this same question: Is there anything that can give humanity certain answers to all of life’s most mysterious questions?
From all of the martial arts talk above, we realized that it is logic and reason that gives BJJ its uniqueness and power among all of the other martial arts. This should provide us with a clue as to what can give humanity a CERTAIN, FINAL, and ULTIMATE Answer to existence. Do you know what it is yet?
Well, it’s of course reason and logic that can, and will, provide humanity with the certain, rational Answer to existence. In fact, humanity has already been provided with this hyperrational Answer to existence in the form of ontological mathematics. Ontological mathematics has been presented to the world via an absolutely amazing series of books titled “The God Series”. I will leave links to “The God Series” at the bottom of this page for any other rational people out there who would like to begin studying ontological mathematics for themselves.
Only reason and logic are capable of answering profound questions such as: What is the meaning of life?; What is the universe?; Is there life after death?; Does God exist?; Does Goddess exist?; Do Goddesses and Gods exist?; Why does evil exist?; Why does good exist?; etc. Nothing else other than reason and logic can give rational answers to these questions. By the way: You do want these questions answered rationally, don’t you? If you aren’t looking for rational answers to these questions (or if you don’t think that these questions even have answers) then you should stop reading this blog right now. I am extremely interested in these questions and I am only concerned with finding logical answers to them, I have absolutely no time for any other type of “thinking”.
Ontological Mathematics: The Truth of Reason and Logic
So, we have discovered that reason and logic are the only viable method to answer humanity’s most enigmatic questions. Now we must understand what reason and logic actually are, i.e. we must understand what it is that reason and logic are derived from. Reason and logic are created from mathematics, if there were no mathematics there would be no reason or logic. This means that it is mathematics and mathematics alone that provides humanity with the Ultimate Answer to existence.
It’s not just any old mathematics that provides humanity with the Answer to existence though, i.e. it isn’t any kind of abstract mathematics based on logicism, formalism, set theory, axioms, or anything else that is capable of giving us the rational Answer that we seek. No, as I mentioned above, True mathematics is called ontological mathematics. Ontological mathematics is defined by the principle of sufficient reason (PSR) and Euler unit circles, i.e. unit circles defined with respect to the complex number plane. This is the True way to understand mathematics and it’s the way that mathematics actually exists in the universe.
Ontological mathematics, defined by the unit circle on the complex plane and the PSR, is the ONLY mathematics that is eternally stable, perfect, consistent, complete, necessary, and immutable under any and all mathematical transformations and operations applied to it. This means that ontological mathematics is the only possible rational explanation for the existence of life, mind, the universe, and everything.
The Unit Circle
Eternal reality comprises an infinite number of these ontological mathematical circles and the cosine and sine energy waves that they generate via the PSR. If you want to begin to get an understanding of this fundamental process of existence, i.e. if you want to begin to study the unit circle for yourself, you should check out the Trigonometry section on Khan Academy (there is a link to Khan Academy at the bottom of this page).
In Trigonometry, we are introduced to the basic unit circle so that we can begin to get some familiarity with it. This basic unit circle is a circle with a radius of one drawn on the standard Cartesian coordinate plane (i.e. a coordinate plane with two orthogonal number lines: the horizontal x-axis number line and the vertical y-axis number line). When the endpoint of the radius of the unit circle traces around the circle’s circumference, it creates an angle within that circle. The endpoint of the radius sits on the circumference of the circle and flows around the circle as the angle changes. This radius endpoint that sits on the circle’s circumference is a point with specific x and y coordinate values. The x-coordinate value of this flowing point corresponds to the cosine Trigonometry function, the y-coordinate value corresponds to the sine Trigonometry function, and the slope of the radius of the unit circle at a particular angle corresponds to the tangent Trigonometry function.
When the unit circle’s radius moves in a counterclockwise direction it creates a positive angle and when it moves in a clockwise direction it creates a negative angle. As the radius and its endpoint flows around the unit circle in either direction, you can analyze the x and y coordinates, i.e. the sine and cosine values for that particular angle. You can then take those sine and cosine values that you discovered, and you can use them to draw a graph of the sine and cosine functions that the unit circle generates as it continuously traces around its own circumference. These functions, when drawn on graph paper, go up and down like a wave, and they correspond to the the basic energy waves of ontological mathematics, i.e. they correspond to the basic energy waves that define Reality.
The Ground State of Reality
As I said above, the fundamental ground state of reality is an infinity of these unit circles and the sine and cosine functions that they generate. The difference between the basic Trigonometry unit circle and the True unit circles that comprise Reality is that ontological unit circles are full, i.e. they’re made up of complete and consistent mathematics, meaning that only complex numbers can properly analyze them. True Reality is complex number mathematics, i.e. True Reality is mathematics comprised of ALL numbers, mathematics which favors no particular number over any other and cycles through them all 100% equally and forever. This is why the unit circle drawn on the complex plane is what ontological mathematicians use to study Reality.
So, we have an infinite number of these unit circles that are filled up with a complete and consistent set of numbers = mathematics. Each of these numbers within the unit circle exist ontologically as sine and cosine energy waves of every possible value. Being that these numbers exist as sine and cosine functions/energy waves, they can ipso facto be viewed as circles too. This means that we can think of a full unit circle as being filled up with an infinite number of other, lesser unit circles. These lesser unit circles, each corresponding to a different number, are all concentric with each other and their “container” unit circle. We can think of the container unit circle as the organizer and eventual commander of all of its constituent unit circles.
So, there are an infinite number of these ontological commander unit circles, and each commander unit circle is filled to the brim with a myriad of lesser ontological unit circles, with each of these lesser circles corresponding to a number. What we have here is an infinite number of full sets of mathematics. This is the hyperrational ground state of reality. It is 100% analytic mathematics, consisting of nothing but the principle of sufficient reason, an infinity of complex unit circles, and the sine and cosine functions/waves that are generated by these full unit circles. With this basic, necessary, perfect, and eternal foundation of ontological mathematics forever in place, the commander unit circles can go about creating spacetime universes. The spacetime universe of matter that our contemporary scientific materialists study is 100% created by mathematics. This is why mathematics “describes” the universe so well: THE UNIVERSE IS MATHEMATICS.
The Unit Circle Defines The Soul
These commander ontological mathematical unit circles don’t exist drawn on a coordinate grid on graph paper though. No, True unit circles, i.e. the unit circles that are Reality, exist in a dimensionless mathematical domain of pure frequency, outside of space and time. These True unit circles of Reality, these commander unit circles, are none other than us. They are our minds. They could even be called our souls.
These aren’t the ridiculous and irrational souls you hear conventional religious types blabbering on about though. No. These are hyperrational, 100% mathematical, eternal perpetual motion information systems. They generate information, they receive information from the myriad other perpetual motion information systems surrounding them, and they process this information so that they can generate new information. This is an information universe.
It is these 100% mathematical souls (the souls of each and every one of us) that are responsible for creating the spacetime universe. This means that each and every one of us is responsible for the construction of this universe and we are likewise responsible for all of the subsequent states of the universe, including the current iteration.
Ontological Symmetry = Mind
Prior to the creation of the spacetime universe, we all exist together in a dimensionless domain of pure light = mind = frequency. At this point, we (as mathematical unit circles) are all perfectly aligned, concentric, and 100% symmetrical within the domain of mind. In ontological mathematics, a photon (i.e. light) is comprised of a sine wave combined with a perfectly matched (i.e. symmetrical/of the same value) cosine wave. Not only are we all perfectly aligned with each other in this domain of pure light, but we are all also perfectly aligned internally as well, i.e. all of the component unit circles that comprise each of us are all also in perfect symmetry. So, at this point, prior to the Big Bang, we are in a domain of light, and we are all comprised of complete and consistent sets of photons. Math = light = photons = mind.
Ontological Asymmetry = The Big Bang
When we choose to construct a new spacetime universe, we essentially break symmetry. This symmetry breaking is complete, meaning the symmetry breaks within each of us and among all of us. Our own unique set of infinite unit circles break symmetry within us and each and every one of us also break symmetry with each other.
This symmetry breaking is what our scientific materialists refer to as the “Big Bang”. It is also the creation event that religious types attribute to their big daddy in the sky. But, in actuality, it is an entirely mathematical event that has nothing to do with materialism or “religion”. What it has to do with is sine and cosine energy waves that are out of symmetry with each other.
So, we are mathematics and mathematics is us. We are responsible for the Big Bang and the creation of the spacetime domain, not “randomness” (as scientific materialism says), or “God” (as the Abrahamists say), or Karma (as the eastern religious types like to say), or “Love” (as the new agers say), or anything else.
Photons Can Be Split
At the creation of the spacetime universe, we subject ourselves to incredible heat. This heat causes the matched and perfectly aligned sine and cosine functions of low frequency within each of us to separate from each other and become unaligned, i.e. this heat causes the symmetry breaking within and among us. This brings us to the central thesis of ontological mathematics, namely: A photon can be split (like an atom) into a cosine wave and a matching sine wave. In ontological mathematics, we refer to the particles that are associated with these sine and cosine waves as chronons and chorans. A choran is a space particle and it’s associated with the cosine function. A chronon is a time particle and it’s associated with the sine function.
So, this extreme heat causes photons to split, i.e. it breaks light. Once these matching cosine and sine functions are separated from each other they can begin to be paired up with mismatched sine or cosine functions. When sine and cosine waves are combined with other sine or cosine waves that are of a different numerical value, they create all particles other than light particles = photons. All material particles are created from the breaking of light, i.e. all material particles are derived from light particles = photons = orthogonal cosine and sine waves = unit circles = ontological mathematics = minds = us.
These new particles, being created from perfect light, but no longer perfect light, are unable to remain in the dimensionless domain of light = frequency any longer because they are now dimensional. Once these new particles come into existence a new dimensional domain simultaneously comes into existence to contain them. This new domain is none other than the spacetime domain, and this light breaking event is none other than the Big Bang.
So, in ontological mathematics, when cosine and sine functions are perfectly aligned and orthogonal to each other, they exist as photons; when they are out of alignment, they create material particles which then can be used by minds (i.e. us) to construct the spacetime domain of matter, and, eventually, bodies with which to explore that spacetime domain.
The Tasks of The Soul
Once we have created the spacetime domain, we now have a task. The task is for us to get back to perfect mathematical symmetry among each other. This corresponds to us eliminating all of the irrationalities and contradictions within society and living in perfect rational harmony with each other. But before we can accomplish this, we must get back to perfect mathematical symmetry and harmony within ourselves. This corresponds to us subjectively solving our own mathematical equation, i.e. eradicating all of the irrationalities and contradictions within our own minds. Like a scrambled Rubik’s Cube with a mind of its own, we must find a way to realign ourselves, we must find a way to reestablish symmetry within ourselves and among each other.
The Omega Point is the point in ontological mathematics when all universal symmetry has been restored and all souls have successfully solved themselves. At this point, all souls are now mathematically divine and they can all return to the frequency domain of mind to plan for the next “Game of Life”.
At the Omega Point, all souls in the universe have reestablished internal and “external” (among each other) harmony and symmetry, and they are now ready to break symmetry and harmony all over again so that they can begin to reestablish symmetry and harmony. These souls do this symmetry breaking/symmetry creating game for eternity. This is the cycle of the universe. This is what ontological mathematics does; this is its purpose. Ontological mathematics plays the “game of life ” out in every conceivable way. Once it has explored every possible avenue in a game, i.e. once it has finished a game and restored universal symmetry, it collects the game pieces, sets them up again, and restarts the game all over from the beginning. This is Reality.
Free Your Mind With Ontological Mathematics
Once you truly understand that we are all responsible for the construction of this universe, you’ll begin to see how absurd “religion” and scientific materialism actually are. Not only are they absurd, they are also highly dangerous to the survival of the human species.
Mainstream religion wants one of three things, depending on whether it’s western religious insanity, eastern religious insanity, or scientific materialist religious insanity. Western religious insanity wants us to believe that we are all the creations of a cosmic psychopath; this heavenly madman supposedly predetermines everything that we do and he self evidently wants to fuck us up at every opportunity. Eastern religious insanity wants us to believe that we are all the result of “karma”, i.e. it’s karma that takes the role of the cosmic psychopath in these religions and it’s karma that predetermines the kind of life we’ll live and looks to punish us at every opportunity. Scientific materialist insanity wants us to believe that atoms created the universe, i.e. it’s atoms that take the role of the cosmic psychopath for atheist materialists and it’s atoms that predetermine all of our actions, take away our free will, and punish us at every opportunity. All three of these religions are seen for the insanity that they self evidently are once you begin to study ontological mathematics.
Ontological mathematics rationally PROVES to us that we are all autonomous, 100% mathematical minds = souls that exist in a dimensionless domain of pure frequency, outside of space and time. It is for this reason that we all have free will (though our collective actions might make one think that we didn’t want it).
Ontological mathematics proves to us that there is no one and nothing “out there” that controls us, created us, rewards us, or punishes us, except for ourselves. If there is good in the world, if there is evil in the world, if there is misery, if there is happiness or sadness, if there is harmony or strife, if there is anything at all, it is ALL because of 100% mathematical unit circles = minds = souls = us. We are the goddesses and gods of the universe. We are light beings. We are math beings. We create atoms and the material universe out of ourselves. No one and no thing is our master. We are absolutely free. Now, let’s start behaving like it.
