About this book

Structure of Matter, Structure of Mind provides a complete, clear, unified theory of the foundations of mathematics, language, and the human mind. Mind in the human sense is no longer distinguished by a few chance details of zoological classification, but, like physics, is based directly in first principles. Because sentences share all functional mechanisms with equations - a main verb, linguistic deep-structure, recursion, discreteness, linear delivery, truth and falsity - language shares a common source with arithmetic and algebra. Because truth or falsity of equations depends on their symmetry about the "equals", equations are self-regulating, not arbitrary, and reflect the founding properties of matter. Sentences of ordinary language are formed from equations by the turning of a single key - that of symmetry - unlocking the human mind into the fascinating non-Euclidean world of 21st century physics and beyond.

Media reviews

A new paradigm for how we think of the origins of language and math: deals a body-blow to the whole field of evolutionary linguistics. Certainly one of the most important books of the decade. -Oliver Pergams, evolutionary biologist. "To see that the foundations of mind are in first principles rather than in evolution is to return to us the uniqueness that Copernicus and Darwin took away." -Stanley Smerin, neuroscientist. "William Abler offered a brilliant insight into the language system - what he called the particulate principle is elegant in its simplicity." -Sally Shaywitz, author, "Overcoming Dyslexia".
