Response to Scientific American: A Matter of Time.

time

I was very intrigued by your recent article on time, I wanted to respond to it in my own terms or thought technology as I like to refer to it.  Since time seems to disappear from the formulas of theorists and doesn’t appear necessary to exist many people in the scientific and physics communities believe that it is an illusion.  Time doesn’t necessarily need to exist.

“TIME MIGHT BE A CONVENIENT FICTION THAT NO MORE EXISTS IN THE NATURAL WORLD THAN MONEY DOES. “

Albert Einstein Quotes Wallpapers3[15]

Why does the human experience exist?

This is how I want to approach the subject.  To quote myself, “All humans have finite capacity, if they had infinite capacity they would be the universe.”  This is a reference to Einstein’s reason for thinking that man cannot travel at the speed of light because he would approach infinite mass, becoming everything in the universe.  Which is interesting because it suggests that the person moving at the speed of light would become the super position, everywhere at the same time.  If you look at the concept of time dilation, there would be much more time from the perspective of that person because time would be moving much more slowly for him.

It is because we have finite capacity that time appears to exist because we the individual are not whole and in order to make ourselves whole we must continue to interact with our surroundings to maintain a kind of wholeness.  We return to the universe for food, sustenance, shelter, to expel waste, to procreate, and for us survival is wholeness.  One self must rely on the ONE SELF, the universe for survival.

If you look at the connection between mind time and pain what you realize is that pain stimulates the mind and the mind exists to help us connect ourselves with that which would temporarily make us whole, what we need, what we want.

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING

The reason we have failed to discover the theory of everything is because of the cornerstone that we reject, the human perspective.  Fred Hoyle, formerly an atheist, became a deist when discovering the Triple-Alpha process.  This was the first time the Anthropic principle was invoked predictively.  It suggested that the universe might exist for the experience of human beings.

From my experience humans are the brain cells of god.  Intelligence is a very mysterious thing, even though we know it exists and we know it has a huge effect on it’s environment we can’t quantify intelligence like we do everything else.

I have a series of questions for you:  Is intelligence native to the universe?  If so do you believe it had to be here in some form at the inception of the universe?  Would you agree that there is a big difference between intelligent creatures and inanimate objects insofar as we are able to influence our environment?  Now please tell me what percentage of the universe is intelligent?  What percentage of the earth is intelligent?  What percentage of the human body is intelligent?  What percentage of the human brain is intelligent?

Human beings and the human perspective are integral to the theory of everything.  If you examine the way in which math and language frame the problem one (language) presupposes relationship and the other presupposes a singular will, which would be the will of the universe, which would be god’s will, which the mathematician conflates with his own will.

THE UNIVERSE AS OBJECT OR PERSON


There are two different perspectives that the human being can have.  The person that perceives the universe as an object presupposes tacitly a singular will, one volition, and from their perspective they possess that will and they objectify the universe and those around them, I call this being delusional towards people or relationship.  The person who perceives the universe as a person might be delusional about facts but they tend to be less delusional about relationship, imho.  There is a meeting place between Psychology and Philosophy where the rational man stands, both non-deluded about facts and the universe and non deluded about people as well.

The Ancient Indian Philosophers tell a story of Markandeya, one of the greatest Hindu saints, that like Jonah found himself expelled from the mouth of Vishnu who symbolized the universe.  Outside of Vishnu he found himself floating in cold water in permanent night, not being able to see anything.  Until suddenly he saw Vishnu floating on the water in the lion’s pose, after much prayer he was able to get back into Vishnu’s mouth and into our Universe.  This story communicates to me that our universe was created for our mind.  There is no reason we should be able to understand or contemplate the universe.  And I doubt that anything outside of the universe would be in the least way intelligible to the human brain.  We are god, understanding god, inside of god.  Think of our lives as introspection as it were.  Life has experiential data.  It has meaning for the individual that it doesn’t communicate to anyone else.  Our life, in a way, is like a private conversation between us and the universe.

ORGANIC COMPUTER THEORY

My Organic Computer Theory suggests that humans are not as unpredictable as we think.  Every event or fact or statement has positive or negative survival data to the individual, which creates negative or positive emotions.  (the binary code for Organic Computers) This depends on how the individual defines themselves.  The definition set of the individual determines who they project their sense of self onto (plasticity of the sense of self) and who they retract their sense of self from.  This is determined by the character they are playing and the story they think they are in.

Linguistic science and cognitive science believe that we remember things in a matrix of narrative.  That is how we string facts together and how we remember them.  If we genuinely understand an individual we know how they will interpret events and what kind of impact those events will have on their psyche.

Unlike facts and objects humans are less predictable, less objectifiable, more difficult to understand.  So the person good with science and numbers might be almost retarded when it comes to relationship.  Thus I refer to humans as Intelligent Objects to distinguish them from facts and objects.

THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE IS NOTHING CHANGING

grey-scale

The above is how I describe the universe, if their is nothing their can’t be change, and if their is change their can’t be nothingness.  If the universe has the ability to settle into grosser and finer elements when nothing is happening. Then one end of the spectrum would be more active and the other end more static, if you were to turn this pole in a circle and touch both ends you would get an explosion as faster and slower moving elements came into contact with one another.

Ponder this, if their were only one source of light in the universe and no mass, their would be no friction and therefore their would be also no heat.

Furthermore, if nothingness, the original substance is like a fluid, if it were to be stirred would it create brecciated nothingness?  If that was the case than once again their would be difference and their would be change.

WHY IS THERE EMPTY SPACE? 

Another question I have pondered, if time doesn’t exist, why does empty space exist?  How come everything isn’t smashed so close together movement is impossible?  You see I am very suspicious of this thing called empty space that allows me to see from here to there.  What is this substance that I am looking through?  I think empty space is a very mysterious substance.  We don’t contemplate it because we categorize it as nothing.  Is there some force that is the opposite of gravity, perhaps levity that is simultaneously pushing things apart and separating them?  Observe how quickly some substances diffuse in a vacuum or even a fluid.  Why doesn’t everything diffuse to fill empty space.

In the article it is suggested the time can be a singular dimension not necessarily associate with the other 3.  For example, like a photograph their could be space but their wouldn’t be time so their wouldn’t be movement.  But why is there space in the first place?  Why is their separation?  If nothing banged why is it not like we are living in a singularity?

NOTHING BANGED

One final comment, if time is an illusion, that means that there must be some time some place before time or outside of time.  Which means that all their is right now is the singularity and the illusion of plurality. I wrote a fiction piece a while back showing how this would work, potentially.  From the perspective of the person in the singularity every moment of time would be immediately accessible.  (http://shivastus.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/out-of-time-2nd-noah-socrates-story/)

If time isn’t real, the Universe isn’t real because the big bang never banged.  Which means all their is, is the ONE SELF.  So, if that is the case, are we the dream of God?

PRAXIS, GUILTY KNOWLEDGE

Hello students of the Mysteries, this is Noah Socrates speaking to your from the Akashic Repository via the tepaphone, let those of you that have ears listen.  Today we are not going to scry or move through history as we usually do but I am going to tell you of an event that I remember back when I was on earth with my beloved Guru and friend frater Shivastus Solomonicus.  Sometimes he would get so enthusiastic that he would blurt out occult secrets and expose that he had personally influenced events in history.  He would incriminate himself with guilty knowledge that only a certain historical personage had known.  

This one time the subject of King Arthur came up which provoked babaji to start going into this story about how Excalibur had been the name of Arthurs first sword and he had broken it by using it dishonorably.  Babaji then explained that the name of the second sword was PRAXIS.  Everyone was dumbfounded, mouths agape.  Many of his students were fluent with the subject of Arthurian Mysticism and diligent students of those  mysteries, and none of them had ever heard that before.  It wasn’t hard to figure out that Babaji being 900 and some years old had something personally to do with King Arthur.  He had accidentally shown his hand.  

A frantic discussion began in the Zed to find out exactly what his relationship with Arthur was.  I won’t tell you all of the wild ideas but just the ones that I found in my research from the Akashic Library to have been correct.  It turns out that he was the Merlin.  Merlin’s staff had two dragons on it.  According to what Shivastus said at other times the white dragon and the red dragon represented Indulgeance and Aversion the forces that make up the human body.  The wine and the bread, the blood and the brain.  He taught that the balancing of these out was the alchemical marriage.  Many of the Zed thought and I feel correctly so that his initials S.S. were a reference to the two dragons on Merlin’s staff.  

Some believed that the two S’s in Moses were similar.  Shivastus often taught that the word moses meant freedom and came from the Indian word Moksha.  Some people correlated the two serpents that Moses Serpent ate up when he threw it down in front of Janis and Jambris as meaningful too.  Shivah tells us the Jains were the mystics from india.  Moses demonstrated Sapiential Authority over the advisers to the king.

I was able to talk to him in private one day as we walked through the maze garden on our walking meditations and he told me that what King Arthur had been trying to do was to bring the philosophy of the cult of the Augures to the modern age for the good of the world.  Arthur was Auctoritas, the word made by the cult of the Augures and their philosophy on society and praxis, the Zed society itself was based on the tenets of that cult.  Even Jesus had tried to bring the very same message to the West and succeeded to a greater or lesser extent before his message was corrupted.  Auctoritas Rex is the once and future king because he is the only king that deserves to rule.  Jesus wasn’t king of the Jews, he was king of the philosophers because the rabbinical tradition was a philosophical guru tradition, so it should read.  

IAESUS NAZAREUM REX PHILOSOPHORUM

Praxis is the practice and process of applying your philosophy in the world, walking your talk.  The high priest isn’t above the law and doesn’t invent the law, he teaches the law and the law is pre existent and immutable.  If the high priest didn’t teach it the very rocks would scream it.  Nobody is above the authority of reason.  Homo Sapiens means wise man.  People aren’t born wise and some people never attain to wisdom which means that not all human animals are actually HUMAN, only wise man is human, only wise man is like god.

 Shivastus would hammer over and over again that if you don’t know the logical fallacies and cognitive biases you can’t prevent yourself from making them.  And you will not be a wizard before you are a philosopher king.  The siddhis don’t even begin to take effect until you are rational, perfectly rational.  Magick is not only dangerous to the wielder without reason and without a guru, it is an act of theft from god.
