Is success some elusive and abstract concept? Or is it mathematical and physical? This article will attempt to explain success mathematically and physically. Then after reading this article, you be the judge. Many people don’t associate mathematics and physics with human thoughts, behavior, and life. However, mathematics and physics were created to help us understand reality – including human thoughts, behavior, and life.
The Pythagorean Theorem
The Pythagorean Theorem, a Masonic symbol, teaches Masons to be general lovers of the arts and sciences.
The Pythagorean Theorem states that given a right triangle, the hypotenuse’s length squared = a leg’s length squared + the other leg’s length squared. The legs form an L-shaped 90 degree angle, while the hypotenuse slopes from the top of the L to the tail end of the L.
The Pythagorean Theorem is art, in that it deals with shapes; it is science, in that it is mathematical. Shapely and mathematically, this theorem explains success. Success shapely forms a triangular path: successfully thinking to behaving, behaving to living, and living to thinking. Success mathematically fits the Pythagorean Theorem: successfully thinking to behaving squared + successfully behaving to living squared = successfully living to thinking squared.
Given this Pythagorean Success Theorem, the more successful you are in thinking behaviorally or behaving lively, the more successful you are in living thoughtfully.
Now that you see that there is a triangular relationship between thinking, behaving, and living, the next section will discuss negative things that can affect this relationship.
The Spade, a Masonic symbol, means to remove the rubbish of vice and ignorance.
Vices are habits that negatively affect your life. Examples can be laziness, rashness, and lust. Ignorance is not knowing how to accomplish something. An example can be driving to a new destination without knowing the directions.
Vices: A lazy person, acting too slowly, cannot succeed. This person acts too late. He never seems to catch up. A rash person, acting too quickly, cannot succeed. This person acts, making many serious mistakes. So instead of saving time, he wastes time. A lustful person, pleasuring himself often, cannot succeed. This person’s actions are often unrelated to his goal. He pursues pleasure more than purpose.
Ignorance: An ignorant person, not knowing what to do, cannot succeed. Can you imagine a builder building without a blueprint, an aviator aviating without air-navigating devices, or a sailor sailing without sea-navigating devices? To be ignorant is to be lost.
Removal: To remove vice and ignorance, you must have self-control and knowledge. Controlling yourself, you control your destiny. Knowing your trade, you knowingly accomplish your goals.
Now that you see that ignorant thoughts or vice-filled behavior can be detrimental to your success in life, let’s move on to the next section, explaining success via physics.
In physics, Newton’s third law of motion and Einstein’s general theory of relativity are important. Since physics is the science of reality, we can use the law and theory to explain success or failure in human life.
Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal reaction. In other words, if you do good to others, others will do good to you. And if you do evil to others, others will do evil to you.
Einstein’s general theory of relativity states that mass distorts space, creating gravity. So the more massive an object is, the more it distorts space, creating stronger gravity. And the less massive an object is, the less it distorts space, creating weaker gravity. In other words, the more massive your actions are, the stronger consequences gravitate toward you. And the less massive your actions are, the weaker consequences gravitate toward you.
Combining Newton’s law and Einstein’s theory, the more good you do to others, the stronger good gravitates toward you. And the less good you do to others, the weaker good gravitates toward you. Contrastively, the more evil you do to others, the stronger evil gravitates toward you. And the less evil you do to others, the weaker evil gravitates toward you.
Life is The Mirror.
According to this article, it appears that success can be explained via mathematics and physics. From a mathematical standpoint, since the components of success (thoughts, behavior, and life) are triangularly related, they can fit into the triangular format of the Pythagorean Theorem. From the standpoint of physics, since how you treat others affects how they treat you, and larger actions produce larger results, these actions of success can fit into Newton’s third law of motion and Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
