- MATERIALISM: The external world exists after the observer does not.
- CAUSALITY: All effects have an infinite number of material causes.
- UNCERTAINTY: It is impossible to know everything about anything, but it is possible to know more about anything.
- INSEPARABILITY: Just as there is no motion without matter, so there is no matter without motion.
- CONSERVATION: Matter and the motion of matter neither can be created nor destroyed.
- COMPLEMENTARITY: All things are subject to divergence and convergence from other things.
- IRREVERSIBILITY: All processes are irreversible.
- INFINITY: The universe is infinite, both in the microcosmic and macrocosmic directions.
- RELATIVISM: All things have characteristics that make them similar to all other things as well as characteristics that make them dissimilar to all other things.
- INTERCONNECTION: All things are interconnected, that is, between any two objects exist other objects that transmit matter and motion. Among the primary conclusions: time is motion, light is motion, the universe is Euclidean, there is a dynamic ether, gravitation is a push, and the "Big Bang Theory" must be replaced by the infinite universe theory.
