Aamrgan
 

Authored by Cliff Hays

Amidst an undeclared theme of self-referentiality, topics as diverse as ethical paradox and the scientific method are explored in a way that is succinct, unemotional, and adherent to logic. The conclusions resulting from this analysis are as significant as they are bewildering.

Aamrgan is the result of distilling eight years of logical, scientific, and philosophical analysis down into the most concise form possible. The book begins by sequentially presenting and resolving several paradoxes, and in this context its theme (knowledge) and sub-theme (self-referentiality) gradually emerge. Knowledge is first explored via the logical analysis of scientific falsification and corroboration. Then, the impossibility of truthification leads to a more general discussion of the forms in which knowledge is expressed as well as to the ultimate realization that these expression forms themselves hold the key to the elusiveness of so-called 'absolute knowledge'.
