Four color theorem – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Four color theorem – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The importance of this article is the idea of acceptance that each proposition requires a proof, in terms of intellectual rigour, which would seem to assume and assert a hierarchy among knowledge-as-meaning-making systems, with some sorts of forms-as-ideas seen as more rigorous, more valid so more validating, than others, thus acting as prover and proof of others.  If knowledge of/to is seen as intelligence as meaning-making, in reading (meaning) into and choosing (meaning(s)) among, and knowledge is seen as valid only if validated by means of intellectual rigour, applied methods of meaning making (affirming asserted meanings) ascribed to certain forms of knowledge which are themselves proven by themselves, isn’t this also/always a way of ‘going meta’?
