Inter-Connectivity Of Everything




Physics Discussion Concluded

The following is my own (possible) solution to the problems discussed in the physics discussion preceding this post. This post, by the way, will again be posted at the conclusion of my next and last physics discussion, which takes place high in the Canadian Rocky Mountains (also on this bicycle trip).

Nov. 2011

Dialectical Freedom’s Structural Form, b~b~bb, Summarized:

[From within the context of the b~b~bb structure, the “seeming contradictions” that separate Relativity physics from the physics of Quantum Mechanics become logically necessary. In fact, not only does this structure explain some of the weirdness associated with Quantum Mechanics, it also identifies the origin of logical thinking per se. Here’s a quick breakdown of the b~b~bb structure—reading from right to left this structure is describing discontinuity occurring in continuity—time of mind, (~bb). Because of this structure a person like René Descartes can express the truism “Cogito ergo sum,”– I think therefore I am. But, “time of mind” only accounts for half of the b~b~bb structure. “Time of mind” occurs within the universe at large, (b~b, continuity occurring in discontinuity) i.e., growth, decay, fission, fusion, etc.]

Quantum Strangeness Structurally Explained

“Relativity,” according to Laszlo (2004), “did away with space and time as the backdrop of deterministic motion of mass points, but it preserved the unambiguous description of the basic entities of the physical universe.” In my structural theory opposites are necessary in order to preserve “wholeness,” so discontinuity, indeterminism, and non-locality become just as essential for a description of the physical universe as determinism, continuity, and locality. Levels of negation, in this new theory, answer the question: Why do contradictory aspects separate micro universe from macro universe or, put another way, why are micro events probable and macro events deterministic? Predictions for micro and macro events are possible (micro probable, macro deterministic) because the evolution of the universe takes place in the space that separates, embeds and connects—connects to the structural space of logical implication. So now we may ask: What are the pre-conditions for this state of affairs?

Determinism, locality and continuity allow for reductionist methods of science to work; that is, until science penetrates deep into that area where the integrity of the physical universe breaks down, where the deterministic motions of mass points no longer exist. At the depths of the “material world” there exists a fuzzy world that exhibits only statistical behavior, behavior only when we observe it– when we separate ourselves from it. There we find a physical reality with no uniquely determinable location, a physical reality that exists in several states at the same time, a physical reality structured by a mathematical equation. In the theory of freedom’s structural form, two “forms” stand out as a way to better understand the contradictory concepts, which remain at odds with one another in the theory of relativity and quantum physics.

The same attributes (discontinuity, indeterminism, and non-locality) that characterize self-consciousness characterize also the “double negation” that serves as the ground of freedom. Both of these “forms” generate implication. At “ground” implication remains open, while in self-consciousness, implication opens up the human world-historical-process. In other words, the negation that lies at the center of self-consciousness, the negation that permits our capacity to solve mathematical equations, lies also at the “ground level” of our experience with quantum physics. Because observation takes place in the space of continuity, determinism and locality– self-consciousness’s negative space— there is an unavoidable clash of worlds—the world of continuity, determinism and locality (relativity) clashes with the world of discontinuity, indeterminism, and non-locality (quantum physics). Bottom line—the theory of relativity accurately describes natural phenomena. Einstein’s equations, when applied to the world of physical events, provide accurate information concerning our status as participating agents in the physical universe. Likewise, quantum mechanics accurately describes natural phenomena. Only the phenomena being described are “fuzzy” because, as it is throughout freedom’s dialectic, the space that separates also embeds and connects. In other words, on the quantum level, self-consciousness confronts its own ground condition in the form of the “phenomenal strangeness” of quantum physics.

Ultimately, from its most holistic perspective, dialectical freedom’s structural form tells us: Were it not for the negative space/condition of determinism, continuity, and locality, the human consciousness of discontinuity, non-locality, and indeterminism (opposites are necessary to conserve wholeness) would not be free in a world of our own experience (by degrees, experience of our own choosing), seeking truth, justice, and religious meaning.

    I’ve read, and re-read this post. I have so much respect for scholars like yourself. It is over my head, but I truly enjoy real knowledge.

  2. fiercebuddhist Says:

    M Theory goes a long way in explaining many things. Every choice is a possible universe. Everything you thought about doing you did. With infinite universes there are also infinite possibilities. I look forward to reading more of your writings. Have you ever read Flatland?

    • bwinwnbwi Says:

      Interesting! I have not read Flatland, but I have read many descriptions of that book,-a wonderful book, which creatively explores possibilities and limitations. I thought I was posting the above post on my other blog—it’s an accident. But, upon reflection, I believe it is an accident that was supposed to happen. My theory is a bit like yours only it explains why you or anyone else can create theories. The post above is an abbreviated aspect of my theory, but I will now try to fill in the rest here.

      The post above describes how determinism and uncertainty can live together in harmony, but there’s more to the story than that! Evolution is driven not just by adaptation/survival; it is also driven by consciousness/freedom. Evolution is not just associated with biology; it is also associated with structure, the structure that embeds consciousness/freedom. The b~b~bb structure is a product of the evolution of structured consciousness/freedom. At its source, consciousness/freedom is contained in the ~~b structure, or the space that separates, embeds and connects—connects to the structural space of logical implication. After a sufficient level of evolution (complexity) is achieved however, ~~b becomes ~bb. At this level, the level of biological life, consciousness/freedom becomes free to evolve an even more free and conscious life form—the b~b~bb structural life form that builds civilizations and asks questions like how, why, when, and where did consciousness/freedom come from, i.e., Who Am I? I hope this reply clears up some of the confusion that may be there concerning the above post. Anyway, thanks for the comments. Take care.

    Dd you abandon this blog? The template has changed…

    • bwinwnbwi Says:

      I have not posted here for a long time. My bwinwnbwimusic postaday 2011 blog is where I post now. I am re posting these posts (in a short and simplified form) at the music blog. WordPress sends people who like my music blog here, so I have twice as many followers on a blog. I have tried to fix the problem but no luck. So, I post something like the following when people ask me if I’ve abandoned this blog.

      “I hope you move over to my postaday2011 WordPress blog entitled bwinwnbwi2 . I think you will find the reads more enjoyable.”
      Thanks for all your comments. Take care.

    okay will do.

      Thanks for all your comments. Take care.

      The problem started at the turn of the year. The pages on the postaday bog cite back then numbered 14 before they reached the next days posts. After January that number dropped to 2 pages and I have yet to find your blog in that number. And then there was/is that strange glitch where people get sent to this blog, the one that I no longer post at—I don’t understand all this, but I am glad to reconnect with you also. At least for you and me, the problem is solved. Thanks for the comments. Take care.

  5. J. A. Robinson Says:

    I just decided to visit to see if you had posted anything since my last visit ages ago. My 20-something son wants to discuss M Theory and Quantum Mechanics with me all the time! My brain gets fried loooooong before he winds down!

  6. bwinwnbwi Says:

    Thanks for the “shout out” Lara Hentz. It’s been a while since I’ve come back here, and even longer since I’ve reread this blog. It probably goes without saying how much I appreciate appreciation, but just to say it again–Thanks for the “shout out.” Take care. Oh, and for what its worth, thanks to J.A. Robinson (above) I finally figured out how to send readers to my bwinwnbwimusic blog. I’m not sure it even matters now though; WordPress seems to be in the process of divorcing itself from the postaday blogs (or maybe I’m wrong).
