Me: what are clusters of concepts that are so complete that it is difficult to conceive of other concepts that cannot somehow fit within them? 1) Claude AI: Concepts or domains that are so broad and all-encompassing that it is difficult to think of anything outside of them are sometimes called “totalizing” or “comprehensive” concepts. Some possible examples of these include: Reality or existence as a whole. It is difficult to conceive of anything that does not fit within the totality of reality. Knowledge or truth. The sum of all knowledge, whatever can be known or expressed in propositions, encompasses all concepts and ideas. Mind or consciousness. The realm of all thoughts, experiences, and subjective awareness could be seen as encompassing all concepts. Culture or society. The range of all human beliefs, practices, and systems could be viewed as a comprehensive domain that everything fits within. Physical universe. One could view the sum of all physical matter and energy, governed by laws of physics, as an all-encompassing totality. These are just a few possibilities. In general, broad domains or schemas that are hypothesized to include everything else as a subset can be thought of as totalizing or comprehensive concepts. However, some would argue that truly all-encompassing concepts are difficult to meaningfully conceive of, given our inherent limitations of perspective. There may always be aspects of reality that escape or transcend any system we use to categorize them.
