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.
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.
Does the universe exist as interpreted by us or at some other level?
Once it was thought that our solar system revolved around the Earth.
Then Copernicus discovered that the Earth and other planets revolved around the Sun.
Now we know the entire solar system orbits about our Galaxy every 230 million years.
So it should be no surprise that there is a possibility that God (the top-down rules governing What Is Behind What Is) can exhibit the same paradigm shift—be compiled in explicit datasets as well as generalized into space, time, and mass.
How The Expanding Universe Might Be Like An Expanding Droplet
Like the boundary of a two-fluid expanding droplet (unsteady and unstable) our universe goes “into and out of focus” at regular intervals.
Who Do We Become? We reach out to the stars with radio waves, to form relationships with complex beings like ourselves, hoping other outer-space entities will have solutions to our problems. We expect that to change, to be successful, requires a complex set of behaviors, but let’s look at the facts. Following are closed-space models, chemical …
In building a model of how consciousness might develop, we assume that there is an “Implicit Order” (as described by David Bohm in “Wholeness and the Implicit Order”) and a “What Is” or an “Explicit Order” as described by J. Krishnamjurti (in his various works).
For something to exist, like an experience of awareness, part of an apparent continuous consciousness, there must be a relationship across at least one boundary (one difference in potential, or at least one signal/transfer of information). A relationship exists when we sample our environment and it responds to our sampling (the same can be said …
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 …
This post is for those who, for whatever reason, through the Facebook platform decided to congratulate Union of Opposites website on its one-year anniversary. On this site, we posit that there exists an Implicit World (Bohm’s Implicit (see Wholeness And The Implicit Order) a WIBWI: What Is Behind What Is), a nondescript …
