April 16, 2018 P: Perspective (The unique ways we look at things–no matter “who” we are).
On this website we discuss topics, hopefully to show that the physical universe is subjective, a product of perspectives of all systems, determined by these relationship boundaries of change.
A good definition of perspective is point of view. If our three dimensional universe in space were made up of a network or mesh of points/locations, then whatever was happening at each location would have a different perspective on the universe, depending on the change relationships that formed its unique position.
In art, perspective is easy to understand. An architect that draws long hallways shows the hallway getting smaller and smaller in width and the lines delineating the hallway coming closer. That’s how we see things when we look out over large expanses, even though the lines aren’t always there. (Does the hallway really get smaller? For us it does, but for the hallway at that location, it doesn’t.)
Lenses work to look at places far away, because they collect more light from our target and focus it into our eyes so we can see more detail. The lenses, along with our normal process of seeing things, form our perspective on that thing. (Without a lens, we look up at the moon and see the maria, but with a telescope or binoculars, we look up at the moon and see the crater Tycho and all its streams of debris radiating from its rim to the moon’s rim.)
A relationship boundary or change boundary delineates a difference in something in our universe. With some change, then, a kind of relationship boundary can be formed between two systems. Two systems cannot form unless there is a change between them. Each system has a different view of the other ( a curved meniscus in a straw separates the fluid in the straw from the air in the straw. The fluid sees the meniscus as concave upwards (curving away from it) and the air sees the meniscus as concave downwards (curving toward it).) The meniscus boundary between fluid and air does not change from our perspective, but it does change depending on whether you’re looking from the fluid or the air.
The energy leaking into and expanding our universe was said first to be coherent (no changes), but as we’ve suggested here, nothing exists without some sort of change. So, how can an explosion of energy, theorized to start our universe, not have change, when to exist there must be a change that brings with it boundaries and across them, perspectives? The energy leaking into and expanding our universe, since at first the flow rate of that energy was very great, brought along with it a large energy error. So statistically there were great potentials in that assumed coherent leakage that created our universe in a Big Bang that created the first potential universe. The first change/relationship boundary did not have the perspective of time, because the universe at first did not 100% exist for any appreciable amount of time (not for the relationship boundary or the perspectives across it).
As relationship boundaries perfused our expanding universe, then they became longer-lived, had a greater chance to produce more complex and stable longer-lived relationship boundaries (which later we called systems or objects so we could study them).
Incoming perspectives or potentials for simple systems early on in our universe (before atoms) were formed and lwere much fewer than those the complex system of our minds experience (see information on cyclotrons that study these particles/early-relationship-boundaries). Because all the superimposed relationship boundaries (changes) produce multiple perspectives, our universe exists only subjectively, depending on “who” is looking!
