# Space: What Is It?

Emilie Du Chatelet, an 18th century mathematician and philosopher, did not agree that Newton’s gravitational equation told the whole story: how gravity worked, not just that it seemed as a force between objects.

# THE DURATION OF LIGHTNING

Ever watch lightning in the distance during a thunderstorm?

# CONTINUOUS VERSUS DISCONTINUOUS

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 …

# PRIMITIVE CELL DIVISION

Relational Philosophy vs. Objectivism

Changing one’s POV to be relational rather than objective can illuminate questions about our universe in a new light, so we may begin to find answers to questions that were previously unanswerable.

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.

# When Fact meets Fiction: The Next Grand Solar Minimum

The bad news is that some studies show sunspot magnetic field strengths have been declining since 2000 and are already close to the minimum needed to sustain sunspots on the solar surface.

# THE INCOMING

My philosophy is relational. IT grew out of my thought processes about my journal-published research involving a self-organizing expanding system, not unlike the expanding boundary of our universe. Much of the changes of a boundary’s shape/potential, due to energy/information crossing it, can be characterized using the full Energy Equation and statistical mechanics.

# HOW TO DESCRIBE AN EXPANDING RELATIONSHIP BOUNDARY

Okay, so, today I’ll begin to cover an idea that’s grown out of my pursuit of the origin of human consciousness. I’ve promised this further thought into my relational philosophy of consciousness, but have yet to deliver. For that, I apologize.

# THE PROBLEM WITH IDENTITY

Identity—the unique point of view a person comes into the world with and lives throughout their lives with—becomes a major stumbling block in my understanding of where any sort of awareness goes after death.

# Uncertainty

Does the universe exist as interpreted by us or at some other level?
