Where should I start a topic that talks about figuring out what consciousness is all about? I remember when I first saw THE MATRIX with my hubby in a movie theater. Of course, I thought, all the things we see out there in the outside world are virtual realities. It’s our perspective on things (that …

Does Time Exist [part 1]
Does Time Exist? Does what we think of as TIME, the duration between each of our samplings of the universe, really exist? I like to start with the Uncertainty Principle, posited by Werner Heisenberg. To me, UNCERTAINTY (short for this principle) refers to PERSPECTIVE. What we mean by PERSPECTIVE is the formal method we use …
EFFECTS OF UNIVERSAL EXPANSION
EFFECTS OF UNIVERSAL EXPANSION PREDICTED BY 2D FLUID-FLUID UNIVERSE (Where interfacial tension of boundary is assumed analogous to the gravitational tension between masses in expanding space) WHY DO LARGER PLANETS (formed in the accretion disk of a star) MOVE AWAY FROM THEIR SUNS? By the time they interact with the expanding universe (the distance from …
SPACE IS NOT NOTHING!
The most important theoretical two words I’d like to introduce here are “experimental space.” How is experimental space, maybe space we think and talk about during our experiments, different from space in general (like what we think of as objective absolute cosmic space)?
Has anyone ever experienced a state of bliss?
What does that state require?
Gravitation And Space
How does the creation of space through error lead to gravitational forces?
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 …

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.
