What’s The Static?

How might static (or a low amplitude signal) take part in the formation of our consciousness?

When we read, we concentrate on the words, rarely the spaces between them. But it is the spaces that allow us to consider each discrete series of letters (the information we need to transfer and receive).

What happens in these spaces that helps to group words into their discrete meanings?

What happens in the spaces between the mind’s images and its thoughts?

The Changing Climate of The Implicit

The idea here is that we can never know what is behind our observations, since, perhaps, we live in, as John Archibald Wheeler calls it, a participatory universe, the universe of the observer. Observers who sample at their RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW then process the results, generalize about them, and give them meaning, only to “stash them …

Love and Loss

  Is there a difference between reaching into the past to find someone you loved but  can no longer reach and reaching into the future to find someone you love (or might love), but might never meet?  Let me give you an example. People around me are forever mourning the loss of touch with a …

Analogs: What We Can Know

Analogs: What We Can Know What is the essence of what we can know? That is a vastly different question than What is Behind What is? Studying the applied math we use to solve scientific problems, we learn the extent of that language, what we are capable of understanding. The energy equation and its solutions, …

How long? How far?

One of the mysteries I’m trying to answer for myself is about the difference in measuring space and time.

Leading from my experiment on how an expanding droplet “learns to see” space and time, I will attempt to connect the concept to our own experiences of space and time.

For primitive boundaries how long in duration something lasts (the number of samples between actually sampling the target configuration (primitive sequential recognition) feeds into the “growth” of time.

The radius and circumference of boundary expansion is synonymous with the likelihood of sampling a configuration or statistical distribution.
