Doku by Tam MacNeil. YA Fantasy. Jao knows that wherever the Empress goes, plots and scheming follow. Orwell's protagonist , Winston Smith , uses the phrase to wonder if the State might declare "two plus two equals five" as a fact; he ponders whether, if everybody believes it, that makes it true. The Inner Party interrogator of thought-criminals , O'Brien , says of the mathematically false statement that control over physical reality is unimportant; so long as one controls one's own perceptions to what the Party wills, then any corporeal act is possible, in accordance with the principles of doublethink "Sometimes they are five.
Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once". According to the First Meditation , the standard of truth is self-evidence of clear and distinct ideas. However, Descartes questions the correspondence of these ideas to reality. He answers that he believes that two plus two equals four. Thus, you will never find in all nature two identical objects; in the natural order, therefore, two and two can never make four, for, to attain that result, we must combine units that are exactly alike, and you know that it is impossible to find two leaves alike on the same tree, or two identical individuals in the same species of tree.
That axiom of your numeration, false in visible nature, is false likewise in the invisible universe of your abstractions, where the same variety is found in your ideas, which are the objects of the visible world extended by their interrelations; indeed, the differences are more striking there than elsewhere. Victor Hugo used this phrase in His purpose is not ideological, however. Instead, he proposes that it is the free will to choose or reject the logical as well as the illogical that makes mankind human. He adds: "I admit that twice two makes four is an excellent thing, but if we are to give everything its due, twice two makes five is sometimes a very charming thing too.
The idea seems to have been significant to Russian literature and culture. Ivan Turgenev wrote in Prayer , one of his Poems in Prose "Whatever a man prays for, he prays for a miracle. Every prayer reduces itself to this: Great God, grant that twice two be not four. The Soviet Union began its first five-year economic plan in Its goals were ambitious from the start, seeking the immediate transformation of the USSR into an industrial nation. The consequences for underperformance during the plan were severe; managers who admitted missing their targets, even as those targets were revised upward, could be charged with the crime of ' wrecking '.
Stalin declared the plan a success at the beginning of , noting the creation of several heavy industries. George Orwell had used the concept before publishing Nineteen Eighty-Four in During his career at the BBC , he became familiar with the methods of Nazi propaganda. Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as "the truth" exists. The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past.
This prospect frightens me much more than bombs. In the view of most of Orwell's biographers, [ citation needed ] the main source for this was Assignment in Utopia by Eugene Lyons , an account of his time in the Soviet Union. In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it.

Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right.
For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works?
