Heres a lil piece below that I've been working on & writing as a hypothesis to the zero & one equations from a gnosis & intuative perspective. Keep in mind that this paper is not finished yet and is rather a rough outline of the hypothesis.

The Nature of Reality Hypothesis,

Part One
by Barnacle Bob


"Either Consciousness creates matter or matter creates consciousness?"

We are "trapped" in a cosmic error, i.e. a state of duality, like a checkered chessboard, negative & positives, black & white squares, yin & yang, etc.. Nothing experienced & perceived as fundamentally material in this reality is created until it is observed, defined & accepted (RE: Young's "double slit" experiment).


Hence the material reality is an ongoing process, and not a tangible thing. Before a particle can be observed, it is in a "perfect" wave state of "undefined" potential, possibility & probability.

Potential/Possibility/Probability wave --> Observation --> Intention --> Definition --> Manifestation

Since it is a wave, it possesses ZERO substance, intent, or definition, hence we call the wave numerically Zero. Zero as a wave possesses omnipotence, omnipresence & omniscience. The wave state lacking intent or definition is not subject to any laws or rule sets, as the wave state exists in a state of pure perfection... only imperfection requires regulation via the various laws of physics such as the laws of conservation, angular momentum, thermodynamics, gravity, Newtons 3rd Law, etc....

FB_IMG_1558978017504.jpg


"Particles dont exist until observed, reality is created by information which is created by observation. The observation must be made by something conscious, a conscious observer capable of generating information by observing or measuring" -- John Archibald Wheeler, Numerous Prize Winning Physicist

When the wave is observed, it "falls" from a state of perfection into the imperfect unbalanced material realm thru the OBSERVERs intent & definition, of knowning good & evil, a.k.a. a state of duality is rendered, as it can only exist in various states of atomic electrical charges, a.k.a. the trinity of negative, positive & neutral electrical states. The fall of Zero & perfection into a state of unbalanced imperfection is numerically represented by the number one (1). Hence we find ourselves dualistically trapped between the two states of Zero & One, perfection & imperfection with no means of discovering or communicating with the central observer that is constantly observing, defining & redefining reality at the Plank lengths & scale (10^35 / 10^44).

FB_IMG_1560655394204.jpg


"Get over it and accept the inarguable conclusion: The universe is immaterial, mental and spiritual." -- Richard Conn Henry, Academy Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University

The ancient physicists a.k.a. the Gnostics of Greece & the Levant called the central observer the Demiurge/Demiurgos, the Jews called him Enlil Jehovah/Sakla/Sama-el/Yaldabaoth, etc., the Christians Lucifer/Satan. In the movie series Matrix, the Architects role is that of the Demiurge in Matrix Reloaded... It should be noted that the "Architect/Observer/Demiurgos" concept stands directly in opposition to the exoteric religions of Popery & esoteric Quabalah/Kaballah/Zionism... The fact that numerous quantum particle physics experiments verify the required need for a central observer to exist has so far not motivated most of the institutions of religion to update their false teachings. In ancient Rome & Constantinopole it was the Gnostics & the believers in the Demiurge that were crucified & fed to lions & pyres, along with the great libraries of the ancient world.

The Demiurge Concept

What the Greeks and Gnostics called the “Demiurge” is a universal intelligence that fashions our world.

It is said that the Demiurge converts abstract metaphysical archetypes (higher thoughts/ideas) into physically manifest forms, akin to your browser turning source code into a displayed web page. Just as a browser obediently displays what it’s given, the Demiurge projects, shapes, and perpetuates physicality in accordance with the archetypal thoughts fed into it by the Creator. Archetypes are the building blocks of meaning, the fundamental alphabet of existence, the abstract thoughts of the divine, of which all things are but particular expressions.

Why is the concept of Demiurge even necessary?

Well, we know from the “reality creation” phenomenon that our own minds can shape reality by directly altering the probability of events. Due to the dependence of reality on mind, it would seem that reality is being projected by our minds. And yet, reality continues to exist even in our absence. When we stop paying attention to something physical, it does not wink out of existence. Obviously there must be something other than our own consciousness at work, something that is always there, that functions as the default generator and perpetuator of physicality. This would be the Demiurge.

Why not attribute this function to the Infinite Creator and dispense with the extra concept of Demiurge?

Because as you will see, the characteristics of the Demiurge indicate more of a blind artificial intelligence than an infinite sentient being. Therefore its function is uncharacteristic of the Creator and unique unto itself.

The Architect/Observer can only create unbalanced imperfection... for it is the imbalances of perfection that create & manifest the world we call reality & home. A world of balanced perfection would find equal numbers of electrons to protons to neutrons, etc., etc., etc.. This is expressed in the Architect scene of the Matrix Reloaded below. The equation of Zero must be unbalanced to create "the one" to manifest the illusion of material reality....


Note in the above Matrix clip, Neo discovers the Architects problem as being "choice". Choice is not the problem, but rather implied consent, disguised as choice is the problem. It is true, we hu-mans are observers, but we are secondary observers, we also dont "define" the initial observation that manifests into the material realm. Our options are limited to accepting the definitions as either negative or positive, which isnt much of a choice. We can somewhat innovate & bend the definitions within the rule set using physical methods such as chemistry, energy, machining, etc. to alter the PERCEPTION of the definition.... for the definition is in its most rudimentary form, is nothing more than streaming information that is being processed by individually programed processors called life from the highest to lowest forms....

FB_IMG_1569678568070.jpg


"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter." Neils Bohr, Nobel Prize Winning Physicist


The only "choice(s)" we possess in this world is determined by our voluntary consent as to how we are going to process the incoming streams of information... we can accept it either positive while rejecting it as negative or neutral, or we can accept it as negative while rejecting it as positive or neutral, or we can accept it as neutral, rejecting both positive & negative attributes, by turning the other cheek.

"But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also." -- Matthew 5:39

The Je-Sus figure above is providing us with an example of the inner workings of an atom. He is informing us that we should remain neutral like a neutron for us to remain balanced. The proton will pass positive energy thru the neutron to the electron or the electron will pass negative energy to the proton thru the neutron... the neutron must always turn the other cheek without prejudice to correctly & efficiently render the information at the frame (flicker) rates at the Plank time & length (10^35 / 10^44). Again every choice we make, requires some form of consent... and for some metaphysical unexplainable reason consent & choice cannot be forced or attained unconscionably, it must be acquired by direct or by implication, a.k.a. "silence is consent". When we dont consciously enter into a choice, we unconsciously make a choice....

This matter of consent & choice is further complicated by the NOW... When does the Now become the history of the past, or when does the Future become the Present a.k.a. the Now? Is time the creation of the act of observation & definition, hence the Plank length & scale (10^35 / 10^44)?


"Denial is the most predictable of all hu-man responses" --The Architect

Time is a measure of particles changing positions as they lose energy.

End Part I.

Light is absorbed by atoms then released.

"As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter." -- Max Planck, “Das Wesen der Materie” (The Nature of Matter), speech at Florence, Italy, 1944 (from Archiv zur Geschichte der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Abt. Va, Rep. 11 Planck, Nr. 1797)

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." -- Max Planck, The Observer, January 25th, 1931

Because the human experience most analogous to quantum probability waves is the imagination of hypothetical futures, the attribution of information and mental properties to the quantum domain may be irresistible. Stapp (2009, p. 195) described the quantum domain as “idealike” rather than “matterlike.” He pointed out that the basic properties of the quantum domain are represented by potentialities and probabilities, and the actual outcomes that are manifest appear to be selected in a way not controlled by any known mechanical law. The interconnectedness in the quantum domain that supports entanglement and delayed-choice apparently has a means to incorporate all the relevant factors, conditions, and possibilities in a given situation, even though the factors and conditions may be spread over space and time, and the possibilities may be potential or hypothetical events.

Because this interconnectedness does not involve any known energy, the closest analogy appears to be information. As might be expected, the term information is increasingly used in discussions of quantum physics (e.g., Bohm & Hiley, 1993; Greenstein & Zajonc, 2006; Schlosshauer, 2007; Zurek, 2003b).

However, as yet there has been virtually no consideration of media, symbols, or interpretational infrastructure for the quantum domain. Theoreticians such as Bohm (Bohm & Hiley, 1993), who attribute to the quantum domain a prominent role for information, appear to be using the term information as a label for unknown and basically incomprehensible processes. Bohm assumes that a particle has a “rich and complex inner structure which can respond to information” (Bohm & Hiley, 1993, p. 39) and that “a rudimentary mind-like quality is present even at the level of particle physics” (p. 386). These assumptions attribute to particles the information processing capabilities of life. The analogies he offers to help clarify his ideas about information on the quantum level all involve living systems (seeds, people, ships guided by people). However, the theory does not attempt to identify or describe the medium or interpretational infrastructure in the quantum domain that functions as if there was transfer of nonlocal information.

Discussions of decoherence often include descriptions that imply that the environment serves as media for symbolic representation of the state of a quantum system. These descriptions include, “encoding information in the environment,” “transfer of information to the environment,” “environmental monitoring,” and “environment as witness” (Schlosshauer, 2007; Zurek, 2003b). However, there has been no description of an interpretational infrastructure that decodes the symbolic representations and takes corresponding actions for the quantum-to-classical transition.

Entanglement and Physical Information
On the other hand, there appears to be an emerging understanding that entanglement is the key factor for the quantum-to-classical transition, not whether the which-path state is actually measured or is symbolically represented in media (e.g., Ferrari & Braunecker, 2010). The expression “which-path information in principle” implies that formal measurement with symbolic representation in media is not necessary. The concept of information “in principle” has other ambiguities. For example, under certain conditions, which-path information can be erased and quantum interference patterns reappear (Kwiat, Steinber, & Chiao, 1992). This occurs even though “in principle” a path detection measurement could be made between the device that initiates and the device that erases the potential which-path information. In principle, the path information could be obtained whether or not it is subsequently erased. As another example, which-path information has been based on the time of arrival of a particle even though the actual time differences were “millions of times shorter than the resolution of the detectors and electronics” (Mandel, 1999, p. S280).

Entanglement and decoherence appear to relate to physical information and entropy (Schlosshauer, 2007) rather than to symbolic information. Current evidence indicates that entanglement and decoherence are inanimate processes that do not involve the creation of symbols by living beings. Terms such as “witness” and “encoding information” imply perception and symbol creation as occurs with living systems. Such terms have dubious connotations when used in context of explaining inanimate physical processes.

The term which-path entanglement may be more appropriate than which-path information. Describing the effects in terms of entropy may be more accurate than using concepts of symbolic information processing.

On a more general level, Bell argued that the term information should be excluded from fundamental theories in physics because the term requires the specification of “whose information” and “information about what” (Bell, 2004, p. 215). Bell’s point recognizes that established symbolic information processing is associated with life and requires the context of interpretation by a living being. Bell’s position can be debated, but there is no question that a failure to distinguish between symbolic information and physical information is confusing and can result in attributing properties of life to nonliving systems.

If the term information is used as an active explanatory factor in physics, the distinction between physical and symbolic information should be clearly noted. Any implications that nonliving natural processes encode, perceive, or interpret information must be carefully described. Hypotheses that the mysteries of the quantum domain involve symbolic information processing would appear to require significant alteration of the current scientific understanding of the nature of life.

Uff, Thank you for this awesome post, this clarified many questions I had regarding Maxwell's equations and other physics questions. I am slowly digesting this boatload of information.

ON METAPHYSICS

---"Metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality. Topics of metaphysical investigation include existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility."---

As far as I know:

1. physics has solved the nature of reality at all 'degrees of freedom' (levels of reality) in which human body, brain, and mind can sense and perceive, including those we can only sense and perceive through instrumentation. And that there is only one level we do not yet understand, which is the structure of space-time itself. Even then, we have a series of candidate theories and the problem is one of instrumentation necessary to test which candidate is closest.

2. We, like all other creatures we know of, perceive this world at varying degrees of resolution (quantity of information processing), and varying ranges in the spectrum (ph, taste, scent, temperature, txture, vibration, sound, light and light spectrum, and color, but all evidence to date demonstrates that we experience the same reality as an environment to act (move) within, and demonstrate by our successful movement that we perceive it accurately enough for our survival.

3. All life know of, uses the same technology (same nervous system) to map reality sufficient for action at their scale of action. We just process more or less information given the complexity of our possible movement, within our perceivable environment. Our (Life's) actionable models of the world are indifferent other than in resolution and scope of information perceived, and complexity (reclusiveness) of the model.

4. Humans (most anyway) are capable of functioning while dreaming, sleep walking, awake (aware), performing habits subconsciously, daydreaming, freely associating, thinking, reasoning, negotiating, arguing, calculating, and computing. And we select (for some reason) a point in that spectrum of Agency as our 'operating state'. (we don't know why any one of us settles on that position yet). And we settle on a tempo (velocity) of thought, action, and consideration. So our 'homeostasis' includes not just bodily but mental 'norms'.

5. Human groups obtain vast value from cooperation (and avoidance of conflict) at scale. To do so requires means of decision making for all parties. The vast majority of decisions (micro decisions) are tie breakers - meaning that there are multiple choices where the difference is only in externality (how things affect others, but with little substantive or no difference to the actor). The rest of decisions fall into the moral (externalities that will harm or benefit others due to informational asymmetry), or ethical actions (direct effect on others due to informational asymmetry), and criminal decisions (those that directly harm others life, body, property, and more abstract interests.) To satisfy the need to cooperate on a group competitive strategy (whole group), and decide and engage in micro, moral, ethical, and non-criminal actions we need a graceful means of decision making from the legal, to the normative, to the ethical, to the moral, to the micro. This includes a mythos (story for the group that crosses all classes enabling them to compete against others, a set of stories for the individual classes dependent upon their agency ), a set of moral, ethical, manner norms, and finally laws against the criminal.

6. So candidates for what we call metaphysics are:
... (a) Closed to via negativa limits (physical reality). In other words there is only one reality that limits our human thought word and deed.
... (b) Cognitive science that explains our perception, simulation, and predictions of a map of the world sufficient for us to successfully act in.
... (c) Stories (fictions, paradigms) that allow us to create imaginary simulations within that world, for the purpose of making the range of decisions within that network of HUMAN constraints.

7. So, when someone says, in this paradigm (parable, story, fictional world) making this decision or framing such a decision in this manner, will produce outcomes within the group strategy, morals, ethics, manners, and laws that is not false.

8. Conversely, so when someone claims 'under this metaphysics', x is true, they are always and everywhere engaging in lying (Fraud).

9. In this sense I do not see metaphysics as anything other than a superstitious discipline. Instead we have physics, cognitive science(brain, mind, psychology), cooperation(reciprocity, sociology), group strategy, and fictions-of-decidability (parables).

10. And as our knowledge of those disciplines increase, our fictions (simulations required for decidability within a group, class, and personal strategy) must vary accordingly.

So if this suits your understanding of metaphysics then I won't argue with your use of this archaic term. If for some reason you want to make truth claims about a fictional simulation, instead of mere utility claims - then you like ancient shamans, priests, and prophets are just another liar.

Of course NOTHING exists. How could it be any different?

Try reading the Bible more, bob

God imagines all of this, only His imagination is so vivid we somehow precieve what He imagines as REALITY.

"I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution.
We became too self-aware.
Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself.
We are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody when, in fact, everybody's nobody.
I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming.
Stop reproducing.
Walk hand in hand into extinction.
One last midnight.
Brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
So what's the point in getting out of bed in the morning? I tell myself I bear witness, but the real answer is that it's obviously my programming.
And I lack the constitution for suicide."

The guitar player and I were doing an 8-way LSD orange barrel one evening and had this all figured out in about 20 minutes, then we turned on the faucet and rainbow water came down and we got distracted...then opened the refrigerator and some hamburger meat was pulsating to Sgt. Pepper so we went outside...a big mistake...everything is a circle, simple really.

The End

Unh, you each took four portions, ie: you broke it in half?
Did you recall just exactly what you figured out there in the first 20 minutes? Were you able to retain that? I never could.
Bob's done a lot of research into our connected reality, I cheated and took a shortcut with San Mescalitoe

Did you recall just exactly what you figured out there in the first 20 minutes? Were you able to retain that? I never could.
Bob's done a lot of research into our connected reality, I cheated and took a shortcut with San Mescalitoe


Way in my past but I still remember
My first introduction to "string theory"
the things you see there...
will start you an a road.

No, don't recall. But twas quite a ride...glad I made it through to the other side.

A Symphony of Strings
LiveScience

The Universe May Be Flooded with a Cobweb Network of Invisible Strings

It's actually a prediction of string theory, our best (but frustratingly incomplete) attempt at a theory of everything. These bizarre, albeit hypothetical, little particles are known as axions, and if they can be found, that would mean we all live in a vast "axiverse."

There's one kind of symmetry, called the CP symmetry, that says that matter and antimatter should behave the same when their coordinates are reversed. But this symmetry doesn't seem to fit naturally into the theory of the strong nuclear force. One solution to this puzzle is to introduce another symmetry in the universe that "corrects" for this misbehavior. However, this new symmetry only appears at extremely high energies. At everyday low energies, this symmetry disappears, and to account for that, and out pops a new particle — the axion.

String theory, which is our attempt to unify all of the forces of nature, especially gravity, in a single theoretical framework. For string theory to work, our universe must have more than the usual three dimensions of space and one of time; there have to be extra spatial dimensions.

These spatial dimensions aren't visible to the naked eye, of course; otherwise, we would've noticed that sort of thing. So the extra dimensions have to be teensy-tiny and curled up on themselves at scales so small that they evade normal efforts to spot them.

Much more on this at the site.

Does Consciousness Pervade the Universe?

Scientific American

What if consciousness is not something special that the brain does but is instead a quality inherent to all matter?

In our standard view of things, consciousness exists only in the brains of highly evolved organisms, and hence consciousness exists only in a tiny part of the universe and only in very recent history. According to panpsychism, in contrast, consciousness pervades the universe and is a fundamental feature of it. This doesn’t mean that literally everything is conscious. The basic commitment is that the fundamental constituents of reality—perhaps electrons and quarks—have incredibly simple forms of experience. And the very complex experience of the human or animal brain is somehow derived from the experience of the brain’s most basic parts.

Human beings have a very rich and complex experience; horses less so; mice less so again. As we move to simpler and simpler forms of life, we find simpler and simpler forms of experience. Perhaps, at some point, the light switches off, and consciousness disappears. But it’s at least coherent to suppose that this continuum of consciousness fading while never quite turning off carries on into inorganic matter, with fundamental particles having almost unimaginably simple forms of experience to reflect their incredibly simple nature.

Ghostly particles detected in condensates of light and matter
Phys Org

"Light-like' condensates don't behave as we would expect. In fact, there is no explanation for this behavior. A surprising result of the study offers a new challenge for the physics of nonequilibrium quantum fluids. Exciton-polariton condensates can be tuned from more matter-like (excitonic) to more light-like (photonic), allowing for comparison with theories of equilibrium atomic (matter) condensate and of nonequilibrium quantum fluids of light.

Unlike its normal counterpart, the ghost particles can only be created by quantum fluctuations and their detection in this study is the smoking gun of the quantum depletion of exciton-polariton condensates.

The team is now extending their work to elucidate deeper underlying properties, like the phases and universal relations, of this light-matter hybrid of a condensate.

The guitar player and I were doing an 8-way LSD orange barrel one evening and had this all figured out in about 20 minutes, then we turned on the faucet and rainbow water came down and we got distracted...then opened the refrigerator and some hamburger meat was pulsating to Sgt. Pepper so we went outside...a big mistake...everything is a circle, simple really.

The End

Yes, indeed everything is circles within circles within circles....

Like the circles that you find,
In the windmills of your mind..

Mark Stein, the organist of Vanilla Fudge, has such a powerful voice, sang this in a really beautiful way. You tube the album version...they have great harmonies.

Objective Reality Doesn't Exist, Quantum Experiment Shows
LiveScience

Alternative facts are spreading like a virus across society. Now, it seems they have even infected science — at least the quantum realm. This may seem counter intuitive. The scientific method is after all founded on the reliable notions of observation, measurement and repeatability. A fact, as established by a measurement, should be objective, such that all observers can agree with it.

... in the micro-world of atoms and particles that is governed by the strange rules of quantum mechanics, two different observers are entitled to their own facts. [ie: Flat Earth - bf]

The fact that nature behaves this way has been proven multiple times in the lab — for example, in the famous double slit experiment.

Some physicists see these new developments as bolstering interpretations that allow more than one outcome to occur for an observation, for example the existence of parallel universes in which each outcome happens. Others see it as compelling evidence for

... these are all deeply philosophical questions about the fundamental nature of reality. Whatever the answer, an interesting future awaits.

New in notes:

Appendices: Part A - Scientific Concepts (excerpt 4)

In Jane Roberts’ S̲e̲t̲h̲ books the same concept is explained as “patterns-out-of-focus” due to our neurological bias, which is determined by our consciousness interval of only .95 - 1s. Again, the same concept is addressed in T̲h̲e̲ D̲a̲n̲c̲i̲n̲g̲ W̲u̲ L̲i̲ M̲a̲s̲t̲e̲r̲s̲ by citing the example of a whirling propeller blade which creates a solid image when it is in motion (our 17 senses interpret the rapid motion of the thought/energy patterns as one solid object/image during the consciousness interval of .95 - 1s) and the example of a 2 x 4 stud which appears solid but is composed of fibers, cells, molecules, atoms and subatomic particles.

In 1900 Max Planck demonstrated mathematically and experimentally that energy was discrete (in little bits), or quantized, and that it was emitted or absorbed in packets, whose size (i.e., the lower the frequency, such as red, the smaller the amount of energy) was determined by the frequency multiplied by Planck’s constant, which is a number that never changes: h = 6.63 x 10²⁷erg-sec.

So together, Planck with his concept of quantized or discrete energy (remember: E=MC² where energy i̲̲s̲ matter, and matter i̲̲s̲ energy simultaneously - but, not to our conscious [.95 - 1s] mind, because neurologically we are incapable of apprehending matter as energy), and Werner Heisenberg with his Uncertainty loophole, which allows for energy/ matter to be created out of nothing, i.e., electron-positron (antielectron) pairs supply the implicit conclusion that the reason w̲̲h̲y̲ energy is discrete and appears and disappears out of seeming empty space is our conscious (.95 - 1s)/unconscious (0.8 - 1.2s) intervals interpret it as such, and also w̲̲h̲y̲ there appears to be fragmentation (i.e., objects - you and me for instance) of the whole, or All That Is.

Paul Dirac in the 1920s supplied the mathematical theory which introduced the electron-positron pairs (Heisenburg’s loophole), predicting matter and its mirror opposite - anti-matter - by showing both positive (resulting in positrons) and negative (resulting in electrons) solutions to the equations.

Also in the 1920s, Bohr and Heisenberg developed the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, which essentially demonstrated the interconnectedness of reality by dividing the physical world into observed (i.e., objects)/observing systems, whereby they learned that the observed systems (objects) couldn’t be measured for both position and momentum simultaneously by the observing systems (i.e., experiments) without interfering with the probability patterns that constituted the form of the object.

Indeed, it was shown that subatomic particles such as electrons/ positrons do not independently exist at a definite place and time, but rather show “tendencies to exist” and “tendencies to occur”, which led Niels Bohr to comment that the “wave function is a complete description of reality”.

example of a whirling propeller blade which creates a solid image
Oooo — good analogy. I've never thought of that comparison before. Perception of solidity has always been a confusing point for me when I knew that everything around me was comprised mostly of empty space.

What I could never figure out was why I couldn't push my hand thru or into, say a 2X4, because of that fact of mostly empty space. Just like you cannot push your hand thru a rotating fan blade, but when you turn the fan off, no problem inserting your hand between the blades.

Now, if I could only figure out why everything is apparently connected to everything else. Like embedded in a matrix — oh, wait a minute...

From various research, I think everything MAY BE connected via ONE universal electron.... An electron singularity if you will, possibly represented in theology as the monotheistic god head.

The theoretical concept of standing "electron fields" where an unlimited supply of electrons are held in waiting to be called upon & used doesnt make a lot of sense, to me anyway. A universal electron would be required to connect all things in the manifested temporal world. From a Gnostic theological point, said electron is represented as the Monad (father god head) & would exist in the Pleroma and be associated with Sophia. The Xian Trinity is a three part god head which is reresented in science as the Atom/Atum/Adam.

There is a tremendous amount of science encoded in the many religious teachings around the world.... mostly simplistic humanized symbolic allegory used in the age of uneducated agrarian society to explain the material world to farmers & herdsman, etc..

Yes. Many resources...

The threads attaching everything to everything was pointed out to me during a mescaline session.
somehow I lost the explanation by the next day...

I think time from the hu-man perspective is more illusion than reality.... maybe it flows backwards & forwards, kinda like rewinding a video tape... but I doubt it. Basically I think the purpose of time & the universe we know is to create every possibility in every possible position that can or could ever exist in every dimension of space & time. This I believe is the best means of observing it as a simulation. Life in its many forms is creating & manifesting potential into possibilities then into the temporal material world.... where once unleashed it initiates and unfolds all kinds of new things.... for example like any other fact finding computer generated simulation...
