### MetaThematics

MetaThematics was in fact the first realisation I had when i entered engineering school.
I initiated for myself the MetaThematics Research Trust, PO Box 1333, Delft, the Netherlands.
For me it was the indicator that as had embarked on a much deeper level of studies and research than what the engineering school offered.
Because MetaThematics was already do first step towards state design and creation of the mathematics of involvement.

In fact I first had to go through engineering school, to learn about their use of mathematics in doing scientific observations and operations.
Then, in the British library, I studied how different cultures work with this same understanding/activity of involvement, and change of the environment that we live in; but each formulate/describe it in their own manner.
Then, in medical school, I studied how our participation in creation affects not only reality but also ourselves.
And now we can bring that all together in formalisation of the operation of our participation in creation: the mathematics of involvement.

MetaThematics is based on the realisation that we observe a physical "reality" around us.
If we take part of that reality and put it in a glass bowl, say an aquarium, then we created local laboratory conditions, which is customarily called "physics".
When we disregard the effect of physicality and gravity within these considerations/constraints, then we come up with the formulation of what is commonly known as "mathematics".
And when we look beyond, and see that the mathematical operations themselves are a logical construction which recreated from our own mind, then we are dealing with "MetaThematics".

MetaThematics, founded in 1972, thus already was the basis for what we are now looking at as "the mathematics of involvement".
It must be understood that we are dealing with much more than physics, because we are implying every aspect of phasics, thus we are dealing with pure mathematics.
Also you must understand that we are dealing with all forms of mathematics at the same time and in the same manner, because we are combining them by a different form of logic.
In fact that was the basis of my first formulation of the consultation MetaThematics; the realisation that we needed to use a four dimensional dynamic logic to describe our participation in creation.

### The 4D Dynamic Logic

The 1st element of that logic is the element of the known which in Boolean logic would be called to "yes".
The 2nd part of that logic is the unknown, which in Boolean logic would be called "no".
The 3rd element of the logic is that we can find ourselves in the transition between the known and unknown, which we can call the space of "I don't know".
The 4th element is where we are actually operating in that space of the-unknown-and-the-known, which is work this form of logic which defines our involvement as "yes-and-no".

That means that there are four elements to this logic: "yes", "no", "yes-and-no" and "not-yes-and-not-no".
In fact this is the logic of a boundary transition with the explicit dynamic of the transition between the known and the unknown.
It therefore describes
1) the closed system,
2) the opening system,
3) the open system, and
4) the closing system.
This, the 4D dynamic logic, is therewith the 'door handle' to our participation in creation: it is the logic of the opening and closing of the system boundary by which we define ourselves and our relationship to the environment.
