Consciousness: Continuous or Discontinuous? Before I discuss either aspect in depth, I want to explain why I would look at continuity as a basis for describing Consciousness. Again, I’d like to emphasize here that all we can do is DESCRIBE. A description is the story we tell about our sample data. And our sample data …


Relational Philosophy vs. Objectivism

When we look at a perfectly symmetrical droplet of water-based fluid expanding slowly into a fat-based fluid, we find that the momentum of the water, as it begins to push the “fat” out of the way, causes the interface between the fluids to go unstable and buckle into sine waves.


    We spoke before about relationships across our complex boundaries resulting in a kind of individual awareness or consciousness. This philosophical investigation grew out of my interpretation of published research involving an expanding droplet interface between two fluids [see The Experiment And we’ve spoken about relationships—even primitive ones—across boundaries that are products of …

The Process of Self-Organization

Self-organization grows out of questions asked and answered across an expanding boundary. The boundary starts at (or just after) a kind of nearly coherent singularity. As energy and information cross the boundary, it changes, and subsequently reacts in an ever more complex way with the WIBWI or the ever changing, Implicit Order (the all-inclusive set/ever-educated/complemented by the Explicit (the WI)).
