Principle of Linguistic Reducibility

Reality is a self-contained form of language. It fits the definition of a language:

  • Uses representation of (object-like) individuals, (space-like) relations and attributes, and (time-like) functions and operations
  • Uses a set of “expressions” or perceptual states
  • Uses a syntax consisting of
    • logical and geometric rules of structure, and
    • an inductive-deductive generative grammar identifiable with the laws of state transition

This principle settles the issue to whether or not reality is the language or is some content of the language by asserting that it is both: reality equals reality theory.
