    Non-descriptive is the non-observable and the non-presentable in terms which have their meaning as bodies, events, measurable values, countable multitudes. Because of these interesting characteristics of formal systemsBertrand Russell humorously referred to mathematics as "the field where we don't know what we are talking about, nor whether or not what we say is true". He stops short of saying that it is impossible to predict future events based on past experience and explains only that we lack any solid reason to believe this is the case. He considers how the nature of the universe's structure prevents us from answering the deepest questions about its beginning, its structure, and its future. There is an order of the life world which is common to every person-"The First Order. We cannot find it in the ancient East.

    In mathematics, what is proven is not the truth of a particular theorem, but that the axioms of the system imply the theorem. This form is just the opposite to the Popper's one from a problem to a problem as the latter assumes a surplus expense of energy. However, it must have seemed at the time that they did. The end of each century leads to a stocktaking of human achievement and our expectation about the future. Experimental testing of such theories has in many instances led to valid new knowledge. It is useful in such widely divergent enterprises as science and crime scene detective work.

    Newton formed a law for gravitation stating that the force of gravitation is directly proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. The ideal, perfect artifact is a human creation and it can exist without or independently from the peace of paper metal, crystal, electronic memory on which we are describing it. However, my answer is Yes. Properly futuristic. If we reach the absolute zero the movement of the atoms ends and the entropy is invalidated-there is no material movement.

P. 6 Scientists conduct their experiments using logical stages—from following the safety protocol and taking the proper steps in the procedure to then draw accurate results.
