Naturalism in Ancient India-Speculations

https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/naturalism-india/

The phenomenal world-A human sees a green leaf. A cat sees a grey leaf. Thus the phenomenal world of experience is a function of the genetic system of  a particular biological species. It is impermanent , since it changes from one species to another and hence the advaita vedanta adherents call the world of experience unreal/impermanent.
Advaitins ascribe to the "universal conscious principle" underlying it all. To my mind the first thing that comes with the word "universal" in the light of present day theories in the realm of scientific investigation are "entangled energy fields", which vibrate to give rise to particles, which interact to give rise to higher orders of emergence. The word "conscious" implies in normal terms "aware". How can energy fields be aware. Awareness arises from emergence. The word "chit" of sanskrit has been "translated" to consciousness/a…

Meditation-Sankhya Yoga-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 body is multicellular , including the brain (consisting of the sensory input processing system). Under normal circumstances, in a conditioned human, the physical predominates i.e data arriving from the sense organs (eyes, ears etc) .The  4 components i.e.buddhi-intellect ahamkara-identity/individualization capacity, manas - memory bank , chitta-(awareness at the mental level)are a  prakriti (psychical nature) according to sankhya psychology. The 3 attributes of sattva(balance/equilibrium/harmony),rajas (activity) and tamas (inertia) are present in various combination in each individual human. The observable universe is when the self/atman/purusha/subject/observer/ is superimposed by prakr…

Musings:Cancer-NonSelf/Self

Cancer: A state where the immune system recognize non-self as self.

What if....

Meditation=dampen receivers of sensory experience/perception. Classicality disappears. The quantum universe is revealed. Awareness/Consciousness=underlying continuum of quantum   entanglement of space time.

Musings-Cancers may arise by........

What if the default mode of single cells is replication and differentiation/ maturation is secondary. Depending upon the interaction of replicating cells with the microenvironment, adjacent cells release inhibitory molecules which make a replicating cell differentiate/mature. This is because competition for food resources as a whole will wipe out cells, so for survival cells divide to a certain number and differentiate, so that the tissue survives as a whole.
 In cancer the default replication of cells carrying driver mutations for tumorigenesis  is not inhibited sufficiently by the surrounding cells so uncontrolled cell proliferation occurs. It is possible that driver mutations arise all the time in cells due to replication errors, but then such cells do not survive and proliferate because inhibitory signals by  surrounding cells  impedes their survival to allow tissue/organ/host  formation to occur.
In cancer the tumor survives at the expense of a host, because the cells in the nei…

What If......................

What if one could predict/model tumor size based on driver mutations. If a correlation could be found between size of primary tumor and metastasis-(for e.g cells will tend to leave larger tumors than smaller ones because of nutrient deprivation of cells at periphery,so they migrate to search for nutrients) then metastasis could be predicted based on driver mutation, and preliminary intervention strategies could be designed.

Incompleteness

Godels incompleteness theorem-undecided statements-statements that cannot be proved to be true or false. What about under certain conditions-depending on the assumption. Contextual truth or falsehood. Is this problem similar to the manyworlds problem in quantum physics-manyworlds exist but as humans we experience one world.
What is a mathematical object ? Are two objects really identical to be counted ?

Why so much conflict in the world

It is because  we try to understand facts historically and take sides with history. We should try to understand facts psychologically. We have choice. We are NOT the same as our ancestors were. We can borrow ideas from their understanding of nature we do NOT have to borrow their conflicts.

Why does cancer arise-Its the first law of thermodynamics

The first law of thermodynamics says that the total energy is a constant. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Cancer accelerates extended life span to death and therefore its frequency arises with age. Normally cancer causing mutations are just probabilities that are present but do not physically occur beacuse a person has to live. This is till 40-50 years of age. With age the person has to die because of mass energy equivalence, mass gets converted to energy, and energy is returned back to the universe. Cancer causing mutations become more frequent with age because of mass energy equivalence. We humans are only following the laws of physics. Elephants do not get cancer. They have multiple copies of the tumor suppressor p53. This is because their metabolism is slow because of large body size. Humans unlike elephants have high rates of metabolism and accumulate toxic by-products. These contribute to the aging process. Probably high metabolism is related to higher intelligence. Elep…

String theory

String theory makes a good explanation for classical physics, quantum mechanics and complexity. Particles are strings vibrating at various frequencies. The math has to be worked out and the extra  dimensions predicted by it have to be experimentally observed.

Energy Mass life span string theory

Larger animals tend to live longer than smaller ones. What if we view evolution in terms of energy and mass in the evolutionary theory rather than fitness. A heavier animal will have more inertial mass but  rotates at a smaller velocity than a lighter animal. According to the string theory quarks are strings vibrating at a certain frequency of energy. what if a heavier animal has a net lesser vibrational energy frequency,i.e the number of quarks are greater than a lighter animal but the frequency of vibrations adjusts so that the net frequency of vibration in a heavier animal are lesser. A heavier animal  conserves energy and leads a longer life. Intelligence is a byproduct in evolution.

Cancer and Chaos Theory

I have worked on both viruses and cancer. I think the chaos theory applies to cancer research as  the presence of the initial mutation in the tumor suppressor or oncogene, leads to subsequent  iterative, uncontrolled non linear multiplication of cells causing a tumor. cancer=chaos.  This can apply to any disease. Chaos in Cancer is dependent on initial  conditions i.e. the initial cancer causing mutation. A small change such as a mutation causes a large change such as cancer because of the unpredictability of the initial conditions.

Musings-superposition states and upanishadic philosophy

Musings-
I have concluded that the underlying self is in 2dimension which projects itself  on a holographic screen in 3D to form the emergent self. What if the 2D and the 3D states which are superposed on the energy field at 1D cancel out when the holographic screen dissolves through disentanglement. Nothing in 1D and something in 2D and 3D states are just probabilities of superpositions. The negative 2D superposition state and the positive 3D superposition state cancel out and we are left with 1D. What if the other dimensions are superposition states. What if the multiverse is a series of strings which when resonating at a particular frequency form a superposition state. 1D state is a static state (brahman in the upanishads),2D state is collection of negative amplitudes (vibrational energy-unmanifested-avyakta)and 3D is a collection of positive amplitudes (information-projection-manifested-vyakta).Vibrational Energy------>Information

Time is emergent-The universes are quantum states

Consider if each human is a probability distribution of a certain arrangement of atoms-i.e. a quantum state. With evolution through "time" different arrangements are possible, complexity increases with increase in entropy, finally the number of arrangements  becomes a constant , complexity decreases its just that these arrangements keep on rearranging themselves with decreasing complexity. Finally complexity goes away and "equilibrium is arrived at. What if each complex arrangement is a quantum state so that time is emergent being a superimposition of quantum states. The initial low entropy state arose from a high entropy state, the multiverse being eternal and infinite alternating between high and low entropic states-it is such energy packets rearranging themselves in different ways through processes involving entanglement. What if there was a quantum state  of energy distributions probabilities where no entanglement occurs that is the final equilibrium state and alte…

Disadvantage of evidence

observation and measurement in one/our universe=evidence,but physical probabilities exist in other universes. Evidence= one interacting state observing another interacting state. Its a participatory universe.

In response to quanta magazine article-Jammed Physics of Cancer

sonali senguptasays:
August 16, 2016 at 9:11 pm
Its an eye-opening, and an insightful article i.e. to apply the concepts of physics to solve complex problems in biology. Taking the "jamming of cells" in solid tumors versus "un-jamming" in those cases where circulating tumor cells have escaped shows how the physical process of "phase transition" can be used to model migration in tumors. I think the challenge lies in the fact that biological systems are so much more complex than physical systems that modeling biological processess using physical equations , although extremely useful has to take into account the quantitative spatio-temporal regulatory processess that govern decision making in biological processes. For e.g abberant intrinsic gene expression profiles could lead to altered cell perimeter to underoot cell area ratio,so the migration model based on this number gives the threshold for jammimg/unjamming and migration but ultimately its the gene expr…

Musings-Origins of Life

Origin of Life: A plausible mechanism for the origin of life  where replication arose before metabolism.
Random bumping of atoms occur based on statistical probabilities,(reaction in a liquid such as water) followed by quantum entanglement,chemical bonds are formed, purine rings are formed which via entanglement (i.e quantum entanglement of the wave functions/states of the electrons of the constituent atoms)  chains of purine rings are formed that form RNA. (I modify this to atoms whose resonance frequencies match undergo entanglement)
 For propagation of information,i.e. sequence of bases, via  RNA , through entanglement and subsequent base pairing , double stranded RNA is formed.
 For "energy efficient" propagation of RNA, metabolism arose , so that amino acids tether onto this RNA to form peptides via  entanglement.
Since large chunks of information have to be propagated in an energy efficient  way and RNA is unstable, the blueprint of life DNA arose.
So is life energy e…

An Essay-A holographic multiverse-with mirror information

The multiverse comprises of energy fields (sphere of influence) for concentrated energies which are in equilibrium i.e symmetry exists in continuum in 1D.
Through perturbations/vibrations of these fields, symmetry is broken to give rise to complementary pairs of particles/vibrating strings, and the material universe arises at the 2D level which carries information. These complementary pairs of particles are entangled. Projection of this information (entanglement information and the vibratory state of the particles themselves) occurs ,onto another set of complementary entangled particles (the entanglement and vibrations are lower in this case, thus this set of particles is more flat-like a screen compared to the projected information) results in a 3D universe/multiverse (uni/multiverse depending on the interaction with the observer).
So "All mass is interaction is satisfied". This occurs at the 3D level.
The mathematics is the calculations of these vibratory energies and ent…

1D continnuum of energy distribution -pure awareness

What if the 3D universe is a  complex holographic projection of 2D information.
What if entanglement of quarticles encodes information for the 3D holographic universe in 2D space.
What if meditation is a method to get back to disentangling the 3D projection of  2D information of quarticles (probability distributions/energy clouds) i.e the wave function. Meditation disentangles the entanglement of the mind with the environment at the level of 3D projection, by disentangling the 2D information(mind), with the holographic screen (level of brain).
 The disentanglement  results in cancellation of basic information (2D-pull like-negative vibratory states in a field) and projected information (3D-push like-positive vibratory states) and the underlying 1Dcontinuum of energy distribution is revealed which is awareness. Emergent Consciousness is 3D projection of 2D information both of which involve entanglement.
Advanced meditators possess lesser entangled 3D projection and consequent lesser 2…

Subjective experience and Entanglement

I observe a green leaf. During this process I entangle with the environment because photons of light reach the eye, cause electrochemistry in the brain followed by vision.
When my eyes are closed and a green leaf is present i do not experience it , because photons of light do not reach my eye. I am no longer entangled with the photons/environment.
Experience occurs with the entanglement process of the observer with the object of observation.
If we understand entanglement we will understand subjective experience.
We make an image of the object in the mind. When decoherence occurs there is disentangling of the observer with  the object , then the image in the mind and the object fades away from thought. A memory is created when decoherence does not occur fully.

Probing the emergent layers using Artificial Intelligence based sensors

Probing the emergent layer using Artificial Intelligence based sensors

  Maybe each structural layer of emergence has a set of properties in terms of  vibrating frequency. Eg, the electron layer, the atom layer, the molecular interacting layer , all functioning in dynamic states .For the average energy of that layer tools of statistical mechanics will prove to be useful. For eg. the averaged contributions of the electrons vibrating, or the atoms vibrating , or the molecules vibrating.  Energy with the Resonant frequency of each vibrating layer will help detect that layer. AI sensors which possess the same resonant frequency at that layer can help detect that layer. For the layer underlying space time one needs AI probes to  match the resonant energy .

Meditation-A method to prevent external observation by preventing collapse of the wave function/quantum decoherence ?

Essay-
Assumption-Entanglement occurs at macroscopic levels or there are higher orders of Entanglement.

Preventing Collapse of the wave function/quantum decoherence which occurs when the senses observe a material object,  thus allowing quantum coherence to remain
During meditation , the eyes are closed. The attention is directed away from the object of sensory perception. If the observer is no longer observing the object of sensory perception ,  therefore no collapse of wave function occurs/no entanglement of the object with the observer.  The material object is a collection/arrangement of atoms, a 3D holographic projection of information. It can have another arrangement in another universe.I am presuming entanglement of quantum states in many universes.
