Electron Dreams

Is one really All?

Allow me to explain: Reality (that is consensus reality) behaves like a canvas that shapes and transforms before the beholder.

BuzzzAn End to the Schrodinger Conundrum—the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle assumes that the observer also has powers to predict unconsciously the outcome. You see, the observer cannot inherently possess the qualities of a conductor, as the Uncertainty Principle implies. Because the electron appears as a wave and particle, the observer cannot have any bearing upon the outcome. The real question is the observer sees either wave or particle because both he and the electron are one and the same.

From the electron’s perspective (does this seem so outrageous? Are humans not also electrons; more complex certainly as there are amalgamations of many electrons to form layers of skin, organs, hair, etc. etc., but electrons all), is not the observer also particle and wave? Not metaphorically the same, mind you, but actually.

When you stare at your reflection before breakfast, do you marvel that you appear? Do you question whether you are there or not there? Do you wonder if you are both here and there? Do you try to walk through the looking glass? It is the same with the observer and electron, as the electron becomes reflection of the observer, and the observer reflection of the electron. As such, what measurable difference between observer and electron can there be?

Inside the Riemann SphereGolden Symmetrywhen the electron moves as does the observer. Think of the intimacy between observer and electron as analogous to the eye of the beholder, only observer and electron are more like eye and beholder. As if the observer were the eye and electron the beholder, and electron as the eye and observer as the beholder. If this relationship seems symbiotic, no actual host and parasite exist, as the existence of host and parasite assumes there is a distinction between them. With observer and electron, no such distinction exists.

Oneness as Reciprocal Union—the concept of oneness is the same mistake as the uncertainty principle assumes there is distinction between observer and electron. This thought is not in error, but incomplete. There is no distinction between any singular entities (the proverbial ‘We’ whatever that includes) from which to pinpoint an all-encompassing oneness, no origin. To say We Are All One is to observe the electron in wave state. I posit, mustn’t there first be a distinction to have elements that can connect into this action at a distance known as oneness?

Peering in again at the Uncertainty Principle: How is it possible for any one (any beholder or electron) to possess control (that is the ability to determine as observer the eventual appearance of the electron)? I mean, the idea that the observer can inherently possess the ability to control (conduct, as if the observer were separate) the universe to such an extent as to predict the electron and himself is kind of just like hugging yourself.

Homage to BoschLet us follow another thread further. To believe that because the boat has a motor and rudder whoever holds the wheel steers the boat across the ocean is like thinking the observer controls/conducts the appearance of the electron as wave or particle. No matter what the engine horsepower or nuclear powered propulsion used, one hiccup from the ocean depths renders any expense useless.  It is more like the ocean steers the boat. The conundrum of the Uncertainty Principle occurs because humans do not control the motion of electrons, they and the electron move simultaneously, neither conductor, neither observer or observed, neither at the wheel, both floating along in quantum foam.

Einstein spoke of relativity; I can see his point. In the guise of oneness, the only point of reference from which all things can be relative is the reflection, which means relativity may actually be an illusion.

...and so on to Infinity...Ones Within Ones (or A Way Out of the Heisenberg Absurdity) —  See, the beholder and the electron may be symmetrical (do not be so limited in imagination, symmetry does not have to be identical in appearance to be symmetrical. Two concepts can be symmetrical, as such two conceptual masses, an object, can be symmetrical of one another’s motion). This is no contest to thinking; however, let us move laterally to the left and see what we can see. Imagine a Cartesian coordinate system, x-, y-axis. Turn the axis sharply to the left and arrive at a z-axis, a 90-degree turn from the y-axis. If you turn your mind 90 degrees from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle . . . are we still beholder or electron, wave or particle? This idea of borders must first be unlearned.

“People say to me, “Are you looking for the ultimate laws of physics?” No, I’m not… If it turns out there is a simple ultimate law which explains everything, so be it — that would be very nice to discover. If it turns out it’s like an onion with millions of layers… then that’s the way it is. . . . [M]y interest in science is to simply find out about the world and the more I find out the better it is, I like to find out…” ~Richard Feynman

Limits to GrowthOneness and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle are incomplete as within the depths of their meaning sits the assumption that there is but one level of observation. That of the observer and electron as separate, so the conundrum is the observer can only see the electron as wave or particle and nothing else. Within the Uncertainty Principle and Oneness exists the real question that there is no distinction between observer and electron, like the electron the observer is both wave and particle as well. As Einstein’s theory of relativity posits, the observer and electron are relative to one another, in motion simultaneously, so observer cannot see beyond wave or particle. The illusion exists because the observer has only a single lens perspective; there are other ones. The flaw of oneness, which assumes We Are All One, rather than We Are All Ones Within Ones . . .  within ones, and so forth in all directions. It is more a matter of peeling away the layers, than a single perception.

Quantum_reflections_003Oneness does not stop at one, no prime mover exists (no which from which there is no whicher. Apologies to my fine fellow, Alan Watts), no origin, no nicely spelt out beginning to the story, motion does not require cause and effect or effect and cause. As the photon emitted from the electron, it simply moves as randomness disguised as cause and effect.

When oneness appears as social diversity (the continual perpetual mind-spinning circular categorization of intangibles, the tree-ing of an otherwise single concept, i.e., departmental hierarchy within a body corporate) bureaucracy abounds, actually epitomizes that there is no real origin. When it is used for the pleasure of finding things out then you have onion-ing. Where each one within one has all other ones, yet, out of nothing also appears as a new one (within one). Analogous to a field of probable action constantly flexing to accommodate new ones, without bias or judgment.

Like an elaborately woven tapestry with fractal designs, the tapestry as first layer oneness (or the observer’s perspective/perception), and all the threads are the ones within. One can look at the tapestry and say We Are All One, and then one can look at a thread and say We Are All One. It is not so much that we forego the trees for the forest or the forest for the trees, as looking closely at a thread. It works in the other direction, too; the tapestry does not end at its borders. Think of the tapestry as our known universe, and the threads as people-ing, earth-ing, sun-ing, solar system-ing, hell, it could even be universe-ing.

Let us not end here (wherever ‘here’ may be; our imaginary 90-degree turn), as further question beckons: What is I?

Knowing Something and Knowing the Name of Something

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird… So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing — that’s what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something. ~Richard Feynman

Does The Universe Have A Purpose?

I don’t know anything, but I do know that everything is interesting if you go into it deeply enough.” ~Richard Feynman

The Meaning Of Life:

What is it that we think we know? And why do we ask? And why is it important that we have an answer? Humans have an inherent, it seems, ability to question their purpose of being. Which seems a bit odd to me, as what is wrong with Just Being? What difference or relevance does the answer make when just being would remain? I like being, love being alive, I think existence is the bee’s knees, if you will. Yes, I question, but this does not subtract from the beauty that is Life, only adds to it.

Does the universe have a purpose?

What if

The Fibonacci in Lateralus

The Big Electron

“We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and no learning. There is no learning without having to pose a question. And a question requires doubt. People search for certainty. But there is no certainty. People are terrified — how can you live and not know? It is not odd at all. You only think you know, as a matter of fact. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don’t know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things. It is possible to live and not know.” ~Richard Feynman

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Major gratitude and graciousness is owed to EverydayGurus for considering me and this blog inspiring enough to receive an award. It’s my first, so forgive me a certain amount of giddiness.

EverydayGurus is an excellent blog, and, frankly, if you don’t believe me, it is but a matter of clicking the link and seeing (reading?) for yourself. How many times have you been out and about and met a stranger or an acquaintance or someone to whom you haven’t spoken in a while and in only a brief conversation you find yourself thinking wholly anew about that which you once thought? How many times have you seen a sign or your eye caught a glimpse of a random piece of urban/street art (also known as ‘graffiti’) and were suddenly filled with emotion at what you had just read? That is inspiration, that is the beauty within human nature and the human condition. The beauty and inspiration of what Kozo (EverydayGurus) does is he captures all of that on his blog. His blog apotlights regular people, your average Jane and Joe, the people you otherwise may not hear about or know of, and the incredible things they do and can teach and show the rest of us. They (We) are all everyday Gurus, Kozo says, and we all have something to inspire another with, the original social network! Thank you again, Kozo. 🙂

Full Disclosure:
Okay, there are some conditions (no worries, really good ones!)–

1. Display the award logo on your blog. [Check]
2. Link back to the person who nominated you. [Check]
3. State 5 things about yourself. [See below]
4. Pass the award onto 6 other bloggers and link to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by pingback. [see below]

Five Things About Me:

  • 1. Everyday I spend time oustide walking around in the woods. I have favorite rocks (actually giant boulders, really, or, egotistical pebbles, if you will) where I sit and often come up with the ideas that eventually end up as posts on this blog.

    2. For about 7 months I lived outside, by choice. Like outside, outside, as in out of doors, in the wild, sleeping on the ground beneath the stars and open sky, animals invading my provisions (talk about pesky neighbors!), walking miles everywhere, carrying everything I owned in a pack strapped to my back. It was one of the best journeys I’ve ever embarked upon in my life. I’ll never forget what I saw and the amazing people with whom I encountered and spoke.

    3. I love reading comics. Everything from Jhonen Vasquez to Robert Crumb to Alan Moore. I’m always looking for 60s and 70s comics (especially of Robert Crumb) and comics by Harvey Pekar.

    4. I have read many, many books. My curiosity takes me to neurology to quantum mechanics to psychology to philosophy to technology to jurassic park. Three of the most brilliant minds that I have stumbled upon are Alan Watts, Richard Feynman and Nikola Tesla.

    5. I often have many projects I’m working on simultaneously. Currently, I am juggling three videos, a soundscape, more binaural beats, a gregorian chant/dubstep mix, two photomanipulations, another collaboration (that I just finished actually–to be posted soon!), and some others.

Six Bloggers who have been very inspiring for me:

  • 1. PhysicsForMe — If you are a follower of astronomy, physics, cosmology, and other areas of science, you will love this blog. This fellow takes some of the most up to date and upcoming discoveries occuring currently in the world today, and blogs about them, complete with links and diagrams. I follow this blog to keep me abreast on all my favorites in science. This blog can be highly technical, so it is not for the faint of heart, but it is definitely well worth the read, even if you’re only slightly interested in what happens in the universe.
  • 2. Just Dharma Quotes — I love quotes, and this blog has some of the best. All the quotes are along the lines of philosophy and buddhism, and there are some right inspiring ones among them, often times more than one. I can’t really go through this blog on my reader without liking just about every quote. This blog probably has many of your favorites, check it out.
  • 3. Carla R. Herrera — WordPress has some of the best writers I have ever read, and for some reason they are not #1 booksellers. Carla R. Herrera is definitely of the ilk that deserves to have an entire shelf dedicated to her work at the local bookstore. She is a prolific science fiction writer with a knack for descriptive artistry with her words (her words will take you on journeys you didn’t think were possible) and a penchant for the unusual idea that wraps you up and makes you want to visit some of these faroff places and intricate innovations that spill forth from her imagination. She is a rare one, indeed. Her work inspires me to improve in my writing and to let loose with my imagination. In addition to her Tesla Machine series, you definitely need to read the book she’s working on right now as part of National Novel Writing Month (November). I’ll say no more…now scoot!
  • 4. Holistic Words — I don’t remember how I found this blog, but I am glad that I did. This blog is run by Andrea Elliot and this woman tackles the intricacies of quantum physics like she were explaining how to color. If you think quantum physics can’t be understood, then you haven’t read Holistic Words. She sees the subtle areas in our lives that are connected and can amplify those connections in a way that you can see clearly and you get that “Of Course” moment. This is what is most inspiring about her blog, when you read it, you realize that these thoughts you had already thought but just didn’t know it.
  • 5. The Liberated Way — I have been following Alex’s blog for a while now (both off and on WordPress) and each day his posts never cease to amaze me. Alex manages to open our eyes to the familiar so that we can perceive it in a new way, from a new perspective. His posts are often motivated by nature and the ways of nature and how those ways can be applied to humanity, because, after all, we are part of nature. He teaches as he inspires, also, and he does this in a way that you don’t know it, but somehow the lesson is integral and tantamount to your daily existence. He is definitely one of those gurus, Kozo talks about.
  • 6. The Sistah Vegan Project — Run by A. Breeze Harper, a graduate student at UC Davis, the Sistah Vegan Project looks at health-living and healthy-eating (a plant-based lifestyle) through the eyes of someone who lives this each day (as well as raises her children under this philosophy and lifestyle) and what she faces before an otherwise traditional, don’t rock the boat, kind of mainstream culture. Much of her blog is the work of theses she may be working and lectures that she gives, but don’t let this fool you into thinking that it is not worth visiting. Her stories and videos of her children loving and downright clamoring for Kale Drinks is enough to pull your heart strings, and one of her first forays into humor comics is some of the best. She inspires for anyone to keep doing what they’re doing even before those who would rather you stopped. One of my favorite posts by her is partially titled, “Spirulina Helps Me Poop.” Seriously . . . go see.

Humanity is but a scale. . .

It is this hard wiring that must be reprogrammed, not so much in individual persons, but in the DNA of humanity itself. The gene must be turned back on. Like reversing the damage done by centuries of the civilized life, well, reversing it without returning to the original point, so a new point to begin evolving. In the civilized life, we forget that we are animals and start believing that we are superior. We start believing that the abilities of mental acuity makes us formidable and beyond reproach. We start thinking it makes us immortal. Although, we can possess mental acuity and we are (as energy) immortal, we are not as humans immortal, we are not untouchable, we are not an ALL KNOWING BEING. Humanity is but a scale, a dimension of existence, a level of magnification. As is consciousness.

There are such apprehensions as infinite finitudes and finite infinities. There is limited unlimits and unlimited limits. It’s more like a spiral, and by spiral, that is to say a gradient (or levels of degrees). A growing, an expansion….not some vertical all powerful CEO. Nature knows this, the Earth knows this. Take, for instance, a spider building its web above the rapids. To put what the spider did into human terminology, he will yield the most return because he built an efficient economy. Bugs gather above the water because it is a source of food for them as well, some will inevitability be trapped in the web. Spiders build webs all over sporadically it seems. But that’s on one level of magnification. There is an intelligence here, it could be on the quantum level or on the macro level [that is should we say if the earth is conscious] which protrudes from motion as a spider that builds a web above the water. The spider knows. And humans are a scale of knowing, a way of explaining the world.

And this deep knowledge (by deep, I allude to volume of Time) is projected as instinct and awareness.

“My rule is, when you are unhappy, think about it. But when you’re happy, don’t. Why spoil it? You’re probably happy for some ridiculous reason and you’d just spoil it to know it.” ~Richard Feynman
