The quadrivium (plural: quadrivia) is a Latin word for the four subjects - arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy - taught after the trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric). They are the four subjects used for the construction (creation) of the Cosmos (the orderly universe).
Mediaeval scholars like Johannes Kepler and Pythagoras believe that God created the universe according to geometric and harmonious principles, and that science has a direct connection to the divine.
The quadrivium is central to understanding that the Cosmos is Information, and chaos is created out of placing a wedge or barrier between information. Science and the divine are rather complementing than opposing. A world where science disproves the divine is chaos, not the Cosmos.
Humans are products of information, and placing barriers between information is dividing humans into the conflicting groups that sustain the chaotic world.
Muslims are products of the information contained in the Quran, Christians are products of the information contained in the Bible, and Jews are products of the information contained in the Torah. Muslims, Christians and Jews will never live in peace and harmony as long as barriers are placed between the information contained in the Quran, the Bible and the Torah.
The way to create a peaceful and harmonious world is to construct the Cosmos out of chaos by uniting previously otherwise irreconcilable information via the field of Polymathy.
Information is made up of words and words are made up of combinations of letters (alphabets).
- In computing, information is conveyed by digits (numbers), which means that numbers are vessels of information.
Quadrivium defines the universe as information because it is all about numbers.
"The quadrivium was the upper division of medieval education in the liberal arts, which comprised arithmetic (number), geometry (number in space), music (number in time), and astronomy (number in space and time)." - Wikipedia.
Number = Digits
Geometry: number (digits) in space
Music: number (digits) in time
Astronomy: number (digits) in space and time
Since digits are the vessels of information, geometry is information in space, music is information in time, and astronomy is information in spacetime.
Geometry = Space (information)
Music = Time (information)
Astronomy = Spacetime (information)
We know that the universe is spacetime, which means that the universe is information.
We are able to arrive at this conclusion because we reconciled arithmetic, geometry and astronomy into the one subject: the Cosmos.
The quadrivium is the four ways or roads into the Cosmos. In the book of Revelation, the quadrivium is the Cosmos described as a perfect square or Foursquare. And in the book of Ezekiel, the quadrivium is a square circle grid comprised of four intersecting circles.
The four circles or four squares are numerically equal to 4 (the Tetragrammaton).
4 = Four Ways
= Four Subjects
