Phenomenological Postmetaneopositivism

(Prolegomena to the methodology of unscientific knowledge)

1. There is a reason underlying the expression “what underlies the facts.” Facts serve to cover up the essence of things.
.      1.1. Facts take a lot of time without adding much sense.
.      1.2. The essence is not what “is”, but what “should be”.
.      1.3. To make use of meaning, we must grasp the essence with the bare hands of reason.
2. A beautiful hypothesis does not need facts except the ones that it agrees to use.
.      2.1. A beautiful hypothesis will find a way to get confirmed, even if some facts do not support it.
.            2.1.2. The facts that are worthy of supporting it haven’t probably come into existence yet.
.      2.2. It makes more sense to neglect a good fact than a good hypothesis, because there are many more facts than hypotheses.
.      2.3. Facts without a hypothesis are white noise. Facts in a hypothesis are a waste of space.
3. If reality does not bear out to the hypothesis, this is the problem of the reality, not the hypothesis.
.      3.1. If reality does not bear out the hypothesis, the reality is not yet ripe and ready.
.      3.2. Inner integrity is the most reliable rationale of a hypothesis.
4. The beauty of a hypothesis can justify any fact. It can justify even the absence of facts.
.      4.1. However, no fact can justify a hypothesis devoid of beauty.
.            4.1.2. Unlike facts, beauty is always true, because it’s irrefutable.
