Experience

Experience. Meditation-Observer (self/atman/witness)-process of observation-that which is being observed (cogitating mind) becomes one (Resonance  of lowest energy states=equilibrium).  No splitting. Unity. Purity of the process=Signal over noise ( distraction) ratio. Purity of mind=One pointed focus/concentration with minimal distraction.

Resonance-Strings

matching resonance energies of strings =one universe. differing resonance energies of strings=multiverse.strings  (branches of the wave function) connected to each other and organized hierarchically.from the surface to the underlying. lowest resonance energy of strings=non particulate non matter=equilibrium at infinity. highest resonance energy of strings=particulate matter=chaos at infinity leads to creativity/projection of the universe. Innermost-lowest resonance energy  to outermost-highest resonance energy (observable universe).

Complexity-04

Meditation-Sankhya Yoga-Psychology based on Experience

The Rishis (Sages) of the past meditated. They included both men (eg Kapila) and women (eg Gargi).
By meditate I mean concentrated focus/observation of their own psychical system.
Meditation is a systems approach.  The rishis went from the surface layers of the mind to probe into deeper levels. The self (atman) is the  unaffected  indivisible witness/seer underlying the split/multiple psycho (buddhi/intellect)-physical (manas/mind) system. The body is multicellular , including the brain (consisting of the sensory input processing system/manas). Under normal circumstances, in a conditioned human, the physical predominates i.e data arriving from the sense organs (eyes, ears etc) onto the manas. In a  thinking mind, intelligence of the buddhi (determinative faculty psychical) is reflected on the manas (physical/cogitating mind) and memory (chitta-memory bank/impressions) develops. Anger,jealousy,greed etc predominate when the discriminatory/determinative capacity (buddhi) ceases. The  4…

Observer Effect

Advaita philosophy-Nondual underlying essence. The universe-multifaceted projection of this non dual underlying essence.
Multiverse-probability states described by the wave function when we are not looking.Non material energy distrbution since we are not looking-infinite
Complexity theory-increasing randomness/chaos/disorder. Organized separate entities (Duality/Multiplicity), mix , resulting in complex systems , further mixing results in uniformity/equilibrium with increasing randomness.
Similarity between advaita philosophy, multiverse, complexity theory-Uniformity (Non-dual) resultant. Complexity theory involves time. Advaita does not involve time.
If time is removed from complexity theory its equilibrium forever. The same as advaita. So is space time peculiar to our experienced universe because we are looking. Multiverse exists because we are looking at our universe and not looking at the multiverse.
So is our experienced universe the observer effect. If so Advaita-non dual (not …

Sustainability

Economic and Scientific Progress has to be sustainable.  Newer Technologies have to be environment friendly and should be incentivized.

Learning

Do what you love. Love what you do. Life is sacred. Life is a constant process of engaged learning.

Fact Check

Living in a physically interconnected world-via the internet. Seeing news spread like viral. We must try to fact check from different sources as much as we can.The three biggest challenges for the future poverty,education and health.

complexity-03

The multiverse and complexity in the universe could be compatible.

complexity-02

the observable complexity of the universe we live in , amidst the background of reality that exists

complexity

No more  posts regarding reality from now for sometime.

Complexity-Is the migration of ants for food akin to cancer metastasis ?



the observable universe

Reality-Overlapping vibrating energy fields forming a continuum with energy fields at equilibrium in the multiverse.
The observable Universe - Vibrating entangled energy fields which are observable.

reality-observation-consciousness

What if reality is cumulative vibrating energy fields in parallel universes. Since we do not look at it it is non-material. An observation is the function of the sensor that detects it. What if consciousness is- "Reality" experienced through the organized complex neural network. Could  peturbation  or transcending this organized neural network through techniques of meditation reveal reality via actual experience of energy fields through altered organization of neural networks.

Spectrum

A case for reality as non divisible non matter from which the divisible dual property material world is produced.
Matter as defined by physics is vibration of energy fields present everywhere. A quantum state of a particle is the probability of vibration of that energy field  , but that does not mean that other probability states of vibration in space are  not present , in fact they are. Could this suggest that these probability states exist in multiple parallel universes (everett many worlds). This implies that there is a spectrum of universes and that this spectrum is infinite.
At the microscopic state discrete opposite spins occur as in Quantum mechanics.The following are the four fundamental forces. Strong force weak force occur in the standard model of physics . Gravitational force i.e pulling together, electromagnetic force i.e spreading out of light and sound occur in the standard model of physics.
 In the macroscopic state the following occurs-Light and dark occur on a spectr…

Emergence

Let us take the example of water.  At the microscopic level H2O molecules are randomnly bumping into each other. Fluidity of water -an emergent property- Macroscopic state. Emergence implies the sum of interactions of constituents is greater than their parts and produces an entity with macroscopic properties different from microscopic properties.  But then is the above statement true. We feel water  to flow because when our touch receptors touch water, there is a feeling of continuity/flow. When we see water the resolution of our eye (human eye) sees a huge bunch of something transparent moving continuously. But an advanced camera (not yet developed)will see/observe a bunch of  molecules randomly being bonded or unbonded.  So what we observe/see/feel/ the emergent property is the function of the resolution of the observer-not a fundamental property of what is being observed.  Applying the same principle, mind is not an emergent property but is a product of what observes it -like a collap…

altered states

What if the universe perceived through the human sensory system is just  a state. An altered brain gives altered senses and another state. What is normal/regular and what is not normal/regular ? just because we are not familiar with it does not mean it is not regular/normal.

Human endeavour

Is human endeavour a function of the human genetic system  ? If so can we go beyond this limitation ? If so how ? By enhanced cognition -developing new senses in addition to the ones we have.
Since all human endeavour is a function of the human sensory system, is the everettian many worlds theory the only way to overcome this limitation.

RP Feynman quote

What I cannot create-I do not understand.

magnetic fields of brain

is it possible that electrochemical activity in brains which occurs during mental processess produce magnetic fields which escape the skull ?

Mind is an emergent property or mind influences brain

The test- if the mind is an emergent property then brain produces mind . If not, mind produces brain. To test these alternatives is extremely difficult. If mind emerges from a complex brain,then decrease in complexity of brain structure should, decrease complexity of mental properties. If this is not the case it should not.
If mind influences the brain it should be able to override/decrease the negative impact of  brain defects.
Whichever study has greater statistical power should be the case.

shared versus different/unique

If you had to define my thoughts(thoughts because there a lot of things we do not know)-I am a naturalist i.e I perceive  the natural world. When I think of it images of plants animals and birds conjure up. I think natural selection is true.  I am a professional biologist.  The questions that occupy my thoughts are: 1. Does  the natural world comprise of  matter only with underlying energy fields ? 2. Is the human description of the natural world sufficient ? 3. Is the human description of the natural world a function of the human brain.
4. Consciousness is  defined as the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings .   If so,  is this awareness in humans a product of the way our atoms in the brain are organized, or is there a state of awareness underlying matter and expresses itself depending on the mode or physical system of expression.
For example awareness manifested through a magnet attracts iron filings. Awareness manifested through a cat sees the world in sh…

Reason for this blog

I start this blog by saying its about cogitation. Cogitate means think deeply about something.
My cogitation is based on rational and intuitive thinking.
I subscribe to rational thinking because it helps to deconstruct complexity. For example if i want to go from point A to B, depending on the reason I choose, i will take a path. If I just want to reach point B , I will take the shortest possible route. If I want to enjoy the wayside scenery too, i may choose other routes
I subscribe to intuitive thinking because there are a lot of things we do not know about  nature, universe and how the world functions. So I may be going along with my experience of the world, news items from the internet , tv and newspapers.
This blog will only have written material unlike my previous blog which was more like random musings, and internet selections based on interest.
I subscribe to the thinking that with new knowledge my conclusions can change.
