WHO DO WE BECOME?

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 …

EXPERIMENT

FOR OUR SPECIFIC EXPERIMENT–SEE “THE EXPERIMENT” UNDER MENU IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE HOME PAGE. Place a droplet of water on a surface and it will bunch up, take on the shape of a half sphere. That’s because water molecules are cohesive, partly meaning they have high surface tension in air. The water …

SIZE

    In my investigation of what space is and how it differs from the dimension of time—or not—I came up against something that should look strange to most of us, but that is taken in stride. Namely, the size of things.   Coming back from Vegas through all of the beautiful, yet never-ending desert, …

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 …

Anniversary Post/Summary

    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 …

Codependent Relationships/Meditation

  Codependency definition: excessive psychological reliance on a partner. Here we look within the individual mind and trade the word “partner” for “template”.   How many of us have ever been in a codependent situation?  All of us, I hope. Because I believe templates (see Love and Loss) don’t just form within our brains in …

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, …

Identity

  [I’m throwing out lots of ideas and questions here that I hope to clarify in later postings.]  What if it’s not how we got to be us, but our unique configuration that determines our unique consciousness?  So, does the shape, independent of anything else, determine our unique perspective?  The above idea might make sense, …
