This is an excellent video that was sent to me today and perfectly meshes with some of the subjects I've been talking about for the past few years/months/weeks/whatevers. Yes…. we're going back down the Physics Rabbit Hole!!
While the information discussed in the video, and the article excepts below, may contain different descriptive words/concepts than what we've been using to try and wrap the english language into a somewhat understandable medium to discuss these topics, but the basic premise/idea/theory/concept actually holds true. This is one of those moments when we need to zoom out and look at the whole picture, instead of tightly focusing on the specific words/visual concepts that we may or may not completely Grok.
This video is based on the work of a group of scientists called The quantum gravity research and they are the home of the “emergence theory”. What's that? Well in a nut shell, it's basically kinda what we've been discussing for ages: the universe/reality is a “simulation” (and I use that term loosely) based on a basic binary code (On vs Off, or 1 vs 0 depending on how you want to look at it), that creates in multiple dimensional facets (Quantum Gravity Research postulates 8Dimensional) geometric shapes (specifically the Tetrahedron), who's edge is measurable as a Planck Length (remember max planck and his theory of Planck Time and Planck Constant- I knew there was a reason I wanted to get into that aspect last week on transpicuous views!), which is the smallest building block of the Universe/reality, yet is “defined” or “translated” into a 3D “Image” that is how we see our Reality.
Ready for the next piece?
The Past Influences the Future, and the Future Influences the Past… In an endless feed back Loop!! The Question is: what part of the past is influencing what part of the Future? And What part of the Future is influencing what part of the Past? The Answer is: All Time is Effecting All Time…. All the Time!!
Ok, I'll take some excepts from Quantum Gravity Research's basic theory article to try and give you the most basic outline of their “Emergence Theory” and “consciousness”
A Theory of Pixelated Spacetime and of Reality as a Quasicrystalline Point Space
Projected From the E8 Crystal
Emergence theory is a unified first-principles theory currently in development by a Los Angeles-based team of scientists. Emergence theory weaves together quantum mechanics, general and special relativity, the standard model and other mainstream physics theories into a complete, fundamental picture of a discretized, self-actualizing universe.
At the root of emergence theory's formalism is a concept quickly taking hold in the theoretical physics community––that all of reality is made of information. What is information? Information is meaning conveyed by symbols. Languages and codes are groups of such symbols that convey meaning. The various possible arrangements of these symbols are governed by rules. The language user makes free-will choices regarding how to arrange the symbols, in order to produce meaning, according to these rules. Fundamentally, then, the existence of information must therefore imply a “chooser,” or some form of consciousness, in order for it to be actualized….
…Reality is experimentally observed to be geometric at all scales, from the Planck level to the largest structures. Our group hypothesizes that an entirely geometric language or code, using geometric symbolism, is the fundamental way in which meaning, in the form of our physical reality, is expressed by…well, we'll get to that.
A central feature of reality behaving geometrically is that all fundamental particles and forces in nature, including gravity, can transform into one another, through a process called gauge symmetry transformation, in a manner that corresponds precisely to the vertices of the 8-dimensional polytope of a crystal called the E8 lattice. However, we do not appear to live in an 8-dimensional universe. Experimental evidence indicates that we live in a universe comprised of only three spatial dimensions…..
…Emergence theory focuses on projecting the 8-dimensional E8 crystal to 4D and 3D. When the fundamental 8D cell of the E8 lattice (a shape with 240 vertices known as the “Gosset polytope”) is projected to 4D, two identical, 4D shapes of different sizes are created. The ratio of their sizes is the golden ratio. Each of these shapes are constructed of 600 3-dimensional tetrahedra rotated from one another by a golden-ratio based angle. We refer to this 4D shape as the “600-Cell.” The 600-Cells interact in specific ways (they intersect in 7 golden-ratio related ways and “kiss” in one particular way) to form a 4D quasicrystal. By taking 3D subspaces of this 4D quasicrystal and rotating them from one another at a certain angle, we form a 3D quasicrystal that has one type of proto-tile: a 3D tetrahedron.
On a TV or computer screen the smallest, indivisible unit is a 2D pixel. In our 3D quasicrystalline reality, the tetrahedron is the smallest, indivisible unit. A 3D pixel of reality, if you will. Each tetrahedron is the smallest possible 3D shape that can exist in this reality: the length of each of its edges is the Planck length (the shortest possible length known in physics – over 10^35 times smaller than a meter) These 3D pixels combine with one another according to specific, geometric rules, to populate all of space.
On a 2D screen, the pixels never move. They simply have different brightness and color values, and an illusion of meaning (in the form of a picture) is created by their combined values. Similarly, the tetrahedra in the 3D quasicrystal never move either. Instead, they act as a binary language: in any given moment, each tetrahedron can be chosen by the code operator to be either “on” or “off.” If it is “on,” it can be in one of two states: “rotated left” or “rotated right.”…
…Imagine a single, frozen moment in time throughout the entire universe. Let's call this moment “moment 1” for the purposes of illustration. In moment 1, the 3D quasicrystal filling the entire universe is in “state 1” and in this state, some tetrahedra are on, some are off, some are rotated left and some are rotated right. Now imagine the next frozen moment in time, “moment 2.” In moment 2, the quasicrystal is in “state 2.” In this new state, many of the tetrahedra are in different states from their states in moment 1. Now imagine a hundred of these moments. Now imagine an animation of all of these frozen moments.
If you think of a movie, the moving-image is composed of single, frozen frames that are filmed and projected at a certain speed (24 frames per second in most modern movies). In our model, one second contains 10^44 frozen frames. Over many of these frames patterns emerge on the 3D quasicrystal. These patterns become more and more meaningful and sophisticated with time. Gradually patterns resembling and acting as particles form on the quasicrystal. In fact, one of the most groundbreaking predictions Emergence theory will make is about a specific, pixelated substructure of electrons––particles currently thought of, without proof, as dimensionless. With time, these particles take on more and more complex forms, and eventually the reality we all know and love emerges.
Emergence theory views spacetime in a way that builds on Einstein's spacetime model, in which the future and past exist simultaneously in one geometric object. We view this object as a system in which all frames of spacetime interact with all other frames all the time. In other words, there is a constant, dynamic, causality loop relationship between all moments in time, in which the past influences the future and the future influences the past.
We view consciousness as both emergent and fundamental. In its fundamental form, consciousness exists inside every tetrahedron/pixel in the 3D quasicrystal in the form of something we call viewing vectors. Think of viewing vectors as micro-scale observers in the traditional quantum mechanical sense. These observers actualize reality by making ultra-fast, Planck scale choices about the binary states of the pixels (on, off, left, right) at every moment in time. This fundamental, primitive, yet highly sophisticated, form of consciousness steers the patterns on the quasicrystalline point-space toward more and more meaning. Eventually consciousness expands into higher degrees of order such as nature and life as we know it. From there life and consciousness keep expanding, growing exponentially, into all corners of the universe. Imagine humankind one day populating trillions of galaxies, its instantaneous communicative channels and high levels of consciousness growing over time into a massive, universal-scale neural network––a collective consciousness of sorts. This collective consciousness conceives the fundamental, “primitive” consciousness that powers the quasicrystal from which it emerges.
A creates B.
B creates C.
And C creates A.
There are no known laws in physics that place an upper limit on what percentage of the universe can exponentially self-organize into freewill systems such as us humans. Indeed, physics allows the possibility that all the energy of the universe can be converted into a single, conscious system that itself is a network of conscious systems. Given enough time, what can happen will eventually happen. By this axiom, universal emergent consciousness has emerged via self-organization somewhere ahead of us in 4D spacetime. And because it is possible, it is inevitable. In fact, according to the evidence of retro-causality time loops, that inevitable future is co-creating us right now just as we are co-creating it.
Emergence Theory and Consciousness
One of the most mysterious aspects of quantum mechanics has to do with reality only existing when it is observed.
Well, who or what is it observed by?
Emergence theory defines this observer not as a human being or animal who is seeing or being aware of something––but as a “unit of consciousness,” or viewing vector that exists at all scales of reality, starting at the Planck scale (the smallest scale that exists in physics.) In Emergence theory's still-evolving framework, emergent universal consciousness self-references itself into existence via a massively efficient geometric, binary code/language of measurements. For the 3D quasicrystalline point space that we theorize is the substructure of reality to behave as this language or code, an observer is required at every point of the quasicrystal in order to make the freewill choices regarding the states of the tetrahedral building blocks of reality in every given moment. This means that at the center of every single tetrahedron/pixel in the quasicrystal there is a unit of consciousness that observes its immediate surrounding and makes binary choices regarding changes in the states of reality at every single moment in time. Each such unit of consciousness is a component of a massive, intricate neural network – a universal scale, collective consciousness that observes the universe at all scales and all times, actualizing reality – including itself – by observing it.
Reading through all this material, and watching the video, gave me a headache, lol, but also opened a very different line of reasoning to my perception of this world as a “Simulation”. Our Immediate response to the “Reality is a Simulation” theory is to want to jump to the conclusion that “someone” did this TO us…. and yet there are whole new avenues of thought that are seeping into the cracks of my mind on this subject.
The interesting thing that jumped out at me while going through all this information was the lack of certain theorized variables. Such as the existence of the Multiverse- multiple parallel universes that exist within the same Time/Space as our own. Also, the theory of separate “Timelines”, that have been split/splintered off of an “organic/original” timeline, creating multiple realities that we all exist within simultaneously.
Within the “Inception” like theory of a simulation within a simulation (which is pretty fuckin' interesting all on it's own), I have to wonder about the “One Consciousness” that is discussed here in this video. Is it a case of literally a “Simulation” within a “Simulation”, working through the concepts of “Time” and “Space” et al, that is the quantum entanglement that has given birth to a singular consciousness that has been created through the Neural Network of each individual consciousness, within a quantum entangled micro/macrocosmic simulation within a simulation?
Did that make sense?
It's kinda like the ol' Chicken and the Egg question….. BUT…. is it through this “layered”/russian doll effect of a simulation within a simulation, that the concept of the Observer/Singular Consciousness is sparked/created/acknowledged, which then spreads, almost like a contagion, back up through all the simulations, to then reflect back inwards with all the “observations” that have been created/seen/acknowledged BY this “Consciousness”, thus changing the NOW of that moment to reflect the observer's observation. Like Waves rippling through space/time/NOW. And as we become more aware of this “Consciousness” within our “reality”, we then use our individual “Neural Network” to add to the “data”, if you will, that is rippling back and forth between these perceived layers of “simulations”, thus we begin to CONSCIOUSLY create/observe/manifest within our own reality- which then ALSO echos, and ripples up through the “Inception” layers of realities, thus, affecting/effecting each of those layers/realities, in the quantum entanglement of our own creation/neural network.
….. have I mentioned that I HATE the english language?
Have we created a basic reverse hive mind? Have we created a massive neural network, that has expanded to the point of CREATING that One Consciousness? A Consciousness that is made up of every ripple/wave/thought/idea/experience of each person that makes up the Neural Network?
Hey Solace! Are you out there?
Interesting stuff my friends!!
