Applying mathematical concepts to other realms of thought.

Similar to how I did the spectrum of the divergence of different series and sequences, I’m thinking about a spectrum of plausibility of statements.

Now, we can’t exactly prove anything, but we can prove things best to our ability. When we say something is proved, then it’s proved to the best of our ability.

There are some statements that, although possible, should be put low on the plausibility spectrum. For instance: “I am all that exists” or “I am the only actually conscious living being”. While these things are possible as they haven’t been disproven (and can’t be), they should not be given as much weight as things that are more plausible.
