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.

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.
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 …
FROM IMPLICIT TO EXPLICIT
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).
Embracing The Other Within Us
Many of us look out at the universe and think, Wow, it’s so vast, so big. Upon seeing the vastness of outer space, immediately we say, “It makes me feel so small.” Why do so many of us resonate with that sentiment?
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 …
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 …
Diversification is the Key: No Perspective or POV Is Trivial
There may be a danger in relying too much on science. For example, recording, collapsing too much on video may cause the “What Is” world, or the world of the explicit POV to dominate the effects of the implicit, “What Is Behind What Is” world, or the implied world (i.e. what works).
If individuals, as they grow and mature, limit their POVs, they end up limiting the diversity of ways of surviving until they are backed into a corner with only one or two options: off me or off them. This is the progressive vilification that leads to terrorism.
