Universology (Andrews)

From Kook Science

Not to be confused with Cyrus Teed's Universology.

Universology (universe + ology) is a deductive framework devised by Stephen Pearl Andrews in the mid-nineteenth century that, firstly, holds a small number of fundamental laws govern all phenomena in the universe, arising from the primordial principles of Unism (unity, sameness, centripetal tendency), Duism (division, repulsion, centrifugal tendency), and Trinism (entity, manifestation, cardinated or hingewise principle), and, secondly, that these universal laws are the one science from which all other scientific endeavours must begin, and, finally, that these universal laws are expressible in a systematic, consistent manner, in particular using Alwato, Andrews' "scientific, universal language."
