What is Reality?


 

what-is-reality

Simple Hypothesis:

All comes from Nothing (Future)
What IS, is the expression of Future as Present
What Was, memory, lies in the Past

To illustrate, take this digital page: it is designed, created, configured, etc., by the software utilized to configure it into the Present by a design engineer, synonymous to the unknown origin of this Reality, a mythical entity as far as concerned. The program application, within a designed environment (computer) of specific electromagnetic and resonant frequencies applied to a binary polarity, represented as zero’s and one’s, produces the reality of the digital page. It is irrelevant to know or comprehend the programming essential to its existence, it is just taken for granted.

What this simple example illustrates is that Reality, premised on specific mathematical laws and physical principles, disseminated for purposes of comprehension into the different departments of science (physics, astronomy, medicine, etc., etc.,) simply are the product of digital binary code or polarity (negative: 0, positive: 1), so configured by the influences of electromagnetic and harmonic resonant frequencies to the binary polarity, into patterns of reality, Reality as comprehended.

This is duly illustrated by placing a thin, bed of sand particles upon a flat surface exposed to a variant range of vibrational frequency. Each amplitude of frequency results in a unique, 2-dimensional, geometric configuration pattern of the sand particles. Now, if each grain of sand were of an alternate polarity (negative–0, positive-1), exposed to a unique vibrational resonant frequency, within a specific electromagnetic environment, potentially, a unique, 3-dimensional representation should develop.

This hypothetical reasoning is promised by the scientific establishing that specific binary code structure (programming) resides at the foundation of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) sequences of the Human genome.

With this basis of understanding, it is not too difficult to postulate the existence of a multitude of realities within the multitude of variations of resonant frequencies and fluctuations of electromagnetic environments (gravity) that comprises what is known as the Universe. In much the same way as flipping  to a new frequency on a radio dial will result in a new program station is derived.

Ultimately, the true determination of `What is Reality?’ will be discovered, however, the key to doing so is to look for the simplicity in the complexity of Nature, therein lies the Key!

The Key

It is a mythical and mystical Key

That unlocks the binding shackles

That are time and space

Anchors to humanity in its place

 

The Divine locksmith

Creator of the Gate to Awareness

Allows clues through consciousness

Abundant but vague, even to the sleuth[i]

 

Like a jig-saw puzzle

Pieces of knowledge and truth

The secret to its ineffable solution

Resides in the Me and the You

 

To find the path to enlightenment

Is to defy the rational mind

For the constructs of reality

Make the seeing eyes blind

 

Like a butterfly

Escaping the confines of its

Cocoon

Allow the Spirit within

To flourish and bloom

 

To be freed of the collective shackles

To see beyond time and space

Humanity’s Enlightenment to the Spirit

To grace this Earthly place.

[i] “Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way … and few there be that find it.” When a modern religion forgets this saying, it is suffering from an atavistic relapse into primitive barbarism. It is appealing to the psychology of the herd, away from the intuitions of the few. Religion in the Making   A Series of Four Lectures delivered during February 1926,
at the King’s Chapel, Boston, USA by
Alfred North Whitehead

If you find it difficult to understand the foregoing, here is a video of a young person, 13 years old, who fully comprehends the basis of Reality:

 From the perspective of Mathematicians: Check out this Video as an aid to understanding, however, with one proviso: watch, listen to what is stated with the perspective of hindsight. That is, Reality, as being experienced,  comes after-the-fact of its happening. Reality resides, on a time-scale, a nano-moment of time AFTER, its being shaped by the forces of Nature influencing its existence. This explains why the laws of Nature are consistent throughout the known Universe AS WE PERCEIVE IT TO BE within our CONSTRAINTS of OUR Reality.

The Blame


flag

This poem was written a while back, however, given the recent expansionist mindset of the current Canadian government to give approval to the installation of a liquid natural gas terminal on the pristine coastal waters of British Columbia recently; it demands a revisit to consider the possible detrimental, future outcome of such an environmentally impacting decision. 

Myopic is the global, political mindset,
It yields the greatest electoral return,
Foregoing the interest of the unborn children,
Yields fossil fuels legislated to pollute, opposition to spurn.

Jobs, jobs, and more jobs
The rationale to explain and excuse
The destruction of earthly resources;
Health and welfare of the many to be abused.

Fracking, pipelines nomenclature of the day,
Hyped as essential for the economy to survive.
Forests and fresh water are resources to be given up for the cause;
Deemed unessential for humanity to flourish and thrive.

The powers that be hold all the relevant cards,
The balance of power rests in their hand.
To reverse the current destructive, global path;
The powerless together, must unite and band.

Populace, street demonstrations are impudent to needed change;
A more powerful, permanent message may be needed, enforced.
A global, collective opposition to those whom self-serving, rule;
A tangible, visible sign of change that all humanity can endorse.

Violence, loss of property and life is not the wanted course
Yet they who hold the power for conditions to be sustained;
Continue to ignore the plight and demands of the many,
Whatever the outcome, responsibility, to them, the blame, remains.

AI: Virtual Reality: Why?


 

 

AI: Virtual Reality:

The Virtual Reality adventure is driven by the need to achieve a Utopian, Humanist realm to supplant the as yet, seemingly, unattainable true reality that is human existence.

The Right to Breath

Right to Breath

Banking of Nature: An insightful and somewhat disturbing look at current financialization of earthly resources that opens the environment to speculative machinations of Wall Street with its dire reputation for the loss of trillions of dollars worth of wealth by the crash of 2008, the impact of which is still being dealt with and, now this greed machine is targeting the natural resources on which to bet.  

Watch this documentary presented by the Passionate Eye:

http://www.cbc.ca/passionateeye/episodes/banking-nature

to which I felt the need to express my distraught via the following poem:
Right To Breath

Financial machinations of white shirts and ties
Entombed in glittering glass and concrete towers
While outside, increasingly, the monetized world dies
Succumbing to insatiable greed of stolen global power

Nations stripped of resources for short-sighted economic gain
Common Peoples’ lives measurably deemed expendable
When barren, deforested land for them is all that remains
A reality scourge that is inhumane and incomprehensible

Irrational reasoning of so-called wise and learned men
Around boardroom tables devise, scheme and plot;
Their foolishness of folly questionably there to defend
When all that motivates is growth of their riches sought

Stock market speculation of all future life here on Earth
Already an experienced, proven destructive ending course
Will lead to all that is living being given its economic worth
A time when the `right to breath’ will be a financial source

REALITY: A Rear View Reflection?


What is Reality? Most of us take ‘reality’ for granted that is, to take the view (no pun intended) that it is what is before us, that what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel. But is it?

In the field of quantum physics, physicists for generations have attempted to clarify or quantify reality in measurable, mathematically equational terms. The fundamental element to what reality is, is ENERGY. The all too familiar Einsteinian equation: E=mc2 (energy=mass x the speed of light squared). However, since the acceptance of this fundamental equation physics has advanced in its theories of reality to the realm of particles, quarks and string theory. However, even with these advances in the science, the ability to satisfactorily balance the equation to mathematically equate a formula to address all known quantum that manifests as `reality’ has not reached consensus by peer review.

So what is missing, what will it take to understand or present a clear, acceptable formula to say what comprises reality?

TIME:

Just recently it was reported that the Hadron Collider in Cern (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44629271/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/neutrinos-clocked-moving-faster-than-light-speed/#.TtkiQ1bZfT4d) a neutrino (non-charged electron) that arrived at its target faster then speed of light i.e., it traveled faster than the speed of light. In accord with scientific protocol, the test was repeated and confirmed the event.

The implication of this finding, beyond confound the general acceptance that nothing travels faster then light and, in view of the generally accepted principle: speed of light is the component to the principle equation for energy, then what implication does this have for the understanding to: what is reality?

INFORMATION:

This era of human history is clearly the Information Age and like its predecessors: the Stone-Age, the Iron-Age and the Industrial-Age, it is undoubtedly going to play a significant role in clarifying for human-kind Who and What it is and to better comprehend the Where, When and How it will evolve from the present Now toward what Time defines as a Future. Note here too, though time has been included in this statement as per the section above, its relevance is truly questionable.

So what is Information?

To anyone mildly familiar with the mechanics of how a computer does the seemingly miraculous thing it does, elementally, it is purely the sequencing of ones (1‘s) or positive charge electrons and zeros (0‘s) negatively charged electrons that in prescribed sequence are deciphered by a central process to create the desired reality; virtual reality. Note here too, time is not an essential contributor to the process. The time element is imposed into the equation by virtue of the observer to the transaction. To understand better, the virtual reality within the realm of the computer’s memory – time is unknown, it just IS, It knows nothing of the fact that is was manufactured by the processing of a specified sequence of ones and zero (positive and negative electrons) therefore, by extending this comprehension to the dimension humanity calls reality, is it not likely to be comparable?

So to answer the question: What is Information? It could be postulated that it is Consciousness,

So what is Consciousness?

Not unlike the computer with its central processor, the human and all living, organic, biological entities, is nothing more than an elaborate, mobile, biological computer with its own central processor: the Brain replete with a hardwired, communications network; the central nervous system to perform involuntary and voluntary functions that move the human body through its various capabilities. Too, not unlike the computer, these functions are identifiable on two levels: a basic operating system and application software.

The basic operating system for all living entities is its DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid). The double-helix is the program born with every living entity to direct how the biological entity will operate from conception forward through its lifespan. Inherent in DNA code translates to the what and how for the biological entity; when being not a function of time as it is commonly referred but rather, a function of cycle (not unlike the cycle of the Moon orbit the Earth and the two, orbiting the Sun).

As detailed above, the operating system routinely transmits electronic signals to perform various, essential operations keeping the biological machine `live’ (breathing, blood circulation, etc). and, responses to external, unforeseen events (example: a rise in body temperature due to an activity causing the body to sweat). Note: these functions are performed without the influence of time but are cyclical or immediate.

The second level eluded to application software; how does this manifest?

Arguably. it can be simply stated as information `learned’ or acquired. This can be classified as external information and knowledge: gained through education, interaction with others, experience, etc..

Then there is intuitive knowledge. Knowledge theorized as encoded to DNA as a function of biological evolution, passed-forward, generation to generation. This hypothesis is open to speculation and at the root to this discussion.

Firstly, accepting the principle: the brain, the human brain for this discussion, is comparable to the central processor of the computer; not unlike the computer, it reacts, processes according to minute electrical impulses on neuron synapsis’ that, by way of the nervous system, stimulate specific, physical activity. Then what about `mental’ or `cognitive’ brain activity?

The discussion now becomes more esoteric, speculative and definitely arguable as to its veracity and strength in fact.

To aid in making this part of the discussion more comprehensible, the analogy of the recent and growing computer technology service: Cloud Computing Technology will be used:

The Cloud utilizes the resources (software and information) from computers as a collective virtual computer, where the applications can run independently from particular computer or server configurations basically, floating around in a “cloud of resources” making hardware less important to know how applications work. The software run on individual computers or those of a company’s is becoming less and less essential. Add to this configuration Wi-fi technology, allows an individual user to seemingly access and extract information, for all intents and purposes, out from nowhere specific. And this is how it is hypothesized the mental and cognitive brain functions.

The Hypothesis: As do a school of fish in a body of water, humans swim in an unseen pool of cosmic electrical energy comprised of positive and negatively (ones and zeros) charged particles that, not unlike a computer central processor, can be translated into information.

The brain with its built in `wi-fi’ receiver becomes the recipient and processor of digital information offered up by the cloud of consciousness contained within the cosmic electrical ocean that envelops all living entities. It is suggested here this process is the source of such knowledge as intuition, imagination, inventiveness, etc.; information for which there is no discernable source but coming from the human brain.

There are several documented anecdote that support this possibility such as that written by Christopher M. Bache titled: The Living Classroom – Teaching and Collective Consciousness that brings into question that minds are individual, separated and isolated from one-another. Further questioning the Newtonian view that the universe is essentially dead.

Synopsis:

What has been presented here is a simplistic, hypothetical perspective of a very complex and compelling subject that affects all of humanity though, unfortunately, ignored by most.

Encumbered by antiquated, institutional theories for the topic has only served to retard the advancement of enlightened theories and limit open discourse for the inability to concretely and substantively meet the strict protocols of scientific purview thus subjugating it to the realm of pseudo-science and esoteric thinking.

That said, retrospective examination by those so inclined will undoubtedly find several opportunity from past experiences of serendipity, synchronicity, coincidence or even precognition to question whether that contended to be Reality is not unlike looking in a rear-view mirror whereby that being realized has already happened and it is just in the NOW realized by five limited senses of awareness.

Agent of the Devil


Not one to believe in the existence of the mythical domain of despicable hate and vileness mastered by one referred to as the DEVIL however, if ever there is to be one human on this Earth who could/would easily be considered to qualify as an agent to such an incarnate, it has to be the Chief Executive Officer of Lockheed Martin, a well known international purveyor of the instruments of WAR.

In a recent shareholders’ meeting, C.E.O. Marilyn A. Hewson, shown here:

ceo

proudly and confidently assured her investor audience that the World is rife with conflict despite the tentative ratifying of the agreement with Iran such that a 30% increase in revenues is confidently anticipated. If not solely for the instability in the Middle East but, gleefully, the brewing tensions in the AsianPacific with not only North Korea but too, growing tensions between China and Japan.

Video: start at 1:52min. to hear her speech  (have a barf-bag ready)

One could almost suggest the lips on the pictured face of this despicable agent of the Devil are flush with the spilled blood of the countless millions of innocent men, women, and children for which she and Lockheed Martin shareholders are directly responsible through the industry she advocates and administers. Though she and her financial supporters did not create the state of conflict that consumes this world, they do little to nothing to stifle its advancement and aggression. The revel in her pronouncement, assuring the insatiable desire for conflict and killing around the world to be a source of growth and profit for her shareholders, can only be described as gut-wrenching to anyone with a gram of empathy and human emotion.  Obviously, Ms. Hewson proves by her own admission in this video; she and those who gain by their efforts to promulgate the killing of innocent lives for profit, are void of any such human qualities.

It is not enough to support our elected officials in defense against terrorist and radical extremist both foreign and domestic, it is time to demand they financially stifle the advances of companies such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics and other provocateurs, from manufacturing and distributing tools of mass destruction.

Hollow are the words of any national leader who purports to be against the brutal killing of innocent lives be it through war or domestic violence when they are unwilling to ONCE AND FOREVER: shut down the source of the tools of war.

Climate in the 21st Century – Muted Voices


seasons

To start, go to your favourite search engine and type in the phrase: ` 21st century new realities’.

For the sake of this conversation, I sought out Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Scrolling through the results obviously in order of `rating’; the most sought or pursued search result, what becomes disturbingly obvious is the total exclusion of any mention related to climate change or global warming.

The reason this is most disturbing and troubling; given that the majority of aforementioned search results, the topics related to economy and education were the primary focus.

Though the anticipated changes to the global economic model for the 21st Century is relevant, as is the standard of education undertaken in response to these changes, they become moot if the shift in climate and conditions resulting from it, manifest in ways already being experienced around the globe.

To those who have not considered the gravity of the current and growing erosion of global climate, the following video will provide a quick update on the present status from a global perspective:

No doubt many may remain sceptical to the reality and/or seriousness of changes to climate now and in the future however, would it not be prudent to at least have the matter on the radar, to be discussing what and how humanity proposes to respond should all projected models prove to be accurate if not understated?

Truly, one need ask the long-range wisdom of those who have or are considering, birthing children into this 21st Century world. It would be reasonable to be considering what world condition their children innocently, are going to be subject to. Especially given the obvious lack of true concern and commitment to mitigating any of the scientifically documented contributors to the abysmal climate change conditions anticipated and, their direct repercussion on the quality of life and living standard future generations will be subjugated to endure. And through no fault of their own.

Compounding the potential for a more dire state of affairs are the dwindling resources, natural and monetary,to effectively respond to the excessive property damage and, financial and economic losses associated with increasingly severe weather conditions already experienced on a daily basis. An extreme shift in weather patterns currently find some areas of the globe suffering from prolonged periods of unusually high temperatures leading to severe droughts and critical water shortages contributing to multi-hectare size forest fires. From this state of conditions to torrential downpours contributing to excessive flooding and landslides.And the full impact of climate change as projected, has not been fully realised.

This article is not intended to `fear-monger’ nor open the flood-gates (no pun intended) of debate on the validity to the reality of climate change nor the conditions purported to be responsible however, in both Canada and the United States the election cycle for the leadership of both countries is well underway and, it behoves every voting citizen to make this issue an electoral issue, to pursue their favoured candidate and associate political party; to how they propose to deal with this urgent matter for the present and increasingly important, the future. Failure to do so may mean the difference of life to death for their children and generations yet to come should there remain no viable world into which to be born.

A related Poem written a couple of years ago.
