Mindfulness and Infinity of Thoughts

Tahv Mindedness: Living with the Maximally Infinite

by Peter George Gross

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Georg Cantor, the father of modern set theory, proved that there exist infinite sets that are greater than other infinite sets. The author demonstrates that the greatest infinite collection (a collection is not necessarily a mathematically proper set with mathematically definable elements) is the collection of all thoughts. The presentation uses different techniques of thought exchange between individual minds to make this point. The importance of such awareness of the maximally infinite, the Tahv, as the author calls it, is left to the reader for now; there is no dwelling on this in any detail in the book; this is on purpose, because the concept of the Tahv is not a familiar one as yet. Once the concept takes hold, the next steps can be developed. It is the author's hope that the book, although not necessarily an easy read, it is certainly an understandable read without any mathematical background. Above all, the book is intended to be enjoyable as well as enlightening.
Description
Georg Cantor, the father of modern set theory, proved that there exist infinite sets that are greater than other infinite sets. The author demonstrates that the greatest infinite collection (a collection is not necessarily a mathematically proper set with mathematically definable elements) is the collection of all thoughts. The presentation uses different techniques of thought exchange between individual minds to make this point. The importance of such awareness of the maximally infinite, the Tahv, as the author calls it, is left to the reader for now; there is no dwelling on this in any detail in the book; this is on purpose, because the concept of the Tahv is not a familiar one as yet. Once the concept takes hold, the next steps can be developed. It is the author's hope that the book, although not necessarily an easy read, it is certainly an understandable read without any mathematical background. Above all, the book is intended to be enjoyable as well as enlightening. The author tries to make a topic that at first glance appears necessarily remote from everyday life into a manageable discussion for the reader. The reader is encouraged and perhaps even expected to make his or her own notations and comments as the topic unfolds in the book. The book is very short and this is also intentional. The very concept that the Tahv raises is that nothing can ever be completed unless it is defined as a closed system. Our minds are made up of infinite thoughts and they definitely do not represent a closed system.
About the author
Found of math as a youngster, he taught theoretical astrophysics at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He then turned to biology by becoming an eye physician and surgeon. Gradually, he understood that infinity is on every person's mind in one form or another, whether consciously or subconsciously. The author combined the great achievement of Georg Cantor with thoughts, because the maximally infinite collection can be identified with the collection of all thoughts -- in this book referred to as the Tahv. It is the author's view that awareness of the Tahv will lead to a more tolerant society and even possibly World Peace.
