# Manipulation of possibilities

I am currently working on Formal Geneosophy, which deals with the practical applications of Theoretical Geneosophy.

I was tempted to describe the tools developed within Formal Geneosophy as the Algebra of Possibilities. However, algebra deals with actualities, or the manipulation of numbers and equations. In fact, the term "algebra" comes from the Arabic word "al-jabr," which means "the reunion of broken parts."

What is new about possibilities in the context of Geneosophy, is that they should not be thought of as parts. Furthermore, the manipulation of possibilities should not be thought of as a re-arrangement of broken parts.

In the end, I prefer to use "manipulation of possibilities" as a way to describe the tools of Formal Geneosophy.
