Philosophical Observations 12
The unity of infinity is a jewel. The unfolding of the facets is a differentiation of meaning, a material expression or experience. We are supposed to understand, to grow and learn, to seek out meaning and return it to the source. This results in a variation of the quality or value of the meaning as we understand it. It is an imperfect or human quality. Imperfection is allowed to express itself as possibilities within a matrix of material expressions. We filter the information for value but this process is imperfect. It has a fuzzy quality. This is because of the information density, otherwise we would suffer cognitive overload.
There must be a practical limit to the digits of precision in the computational geometry of the system as it relates to a particular scale. Scale and resolution move together and all that we can see or measure is a change in the relationships. We are a material expression at a particular resolution and a particular scale. Cognitive overload has something to do with the digits of precision. When we include the dynamics of scale, singularities and digital horizons disappear.
The asymmetry is our carving out our own niche in this material world and the symmetry is our connecting to the source of all meaning. The source is a pure state of being or what I will call truth or God. You might wonder, is God the source of evil, to which I would say no, not possible. If you are thinking this, you don't understand the concept. Truth is the highest energy state of the system. Truth is branching out into the nothingness as possibilities. We are in the gray region between truth and chaos.
How can infinity be bounded into a finite or unitary space? There is only one way, as a fractal.
The material expression of our physical reality is, in a sense, a grand version of "Chinese whispers."
Robust economies require sustainability but the system was never sustainable. We are not cycling resources in a sustainable manner and we are accelerating in the wrong direction. As an example; if we made a car that would go one million miles, we will ignore fuel for the moment, while we would not be able to sell as many cars, we could make them upgradeable and the upgrades more recyclable. The profit would be in upgrading the parts of the car that are most prone to wearing out from constant contact by the consumer or the environment, not the entire car. A can opener should last a lifetime and then some. Maybe even until there is no longer any such thing as a can.
Can immortality be achieved by controlling the rules or laws that govern the variation of relationships? How can we save our memories? What is the best way to store information? To have a continuity of consciousness requires precise relationships. At what level would the variation cease? Could the variation cycle? Could each cycle present a slightly new version of these relationships and still retain continuity? What would we become over vast amounts of time? Only a perfect law could control the variation, to create the most meaning and the most value.
A conundrum is being considered overqualified while not actually possessing any credentials.
In real estate it is location, location, location. In business it is culture, culture, culture.
The role of respect on integrity and influence; while I understand why respect is so important to many people, it is a mid-level (emotional) phenomena. We are spiritual creatures have a material experience and the emotional realm guides the intellect. The more emotional intelligence you have, the less likely you are to be driven by negative emotions. The more spiritual intelligence you have, the more wisdom. The intellect is subservient to all. Respect is used to promote an agenda, wisdom does not consider agendas, it only considers value. Positive value driven behavior has nothing to do with respect. There is only one reason to do the right thing, "because it is the right thing to do." Everything else is an agenda.
The idea that God is no respecter of persons, simply means that God is impartial. God does the right thing regardless. Do you need God to respect you? Do you need anyone of a higher status to respect you? Do you need anyone of a lower status to respect you? If so, it is because of an agenda.
The best way to build community is to minimize social distance. This harmonic positioning has a precise relationship that creates constructive reinforcement of behavioral patterns, meaning and value.
The law is perfect, the law is just, but the law is static and incapable of saving you. What you need is dynamic, it is grace and mercy. God followed this static law to the letter, in a dynamic way, playing a masterful game of chess and in the end provided a dynamic solution.
Balance in your life matters. Loved ones, sleep, healthy meals, work, and exercise should each be given their proper place. Don't try to do too many things at the same time or you will do none of them well. Don't try to do it all, empower your team.
The human heart is a deep well for some and a bottomless pit for others.
Everyone seems to have an idea but we do not really know where we are headed. We are spiritual creatures having a material experience and what we value matters. I think in the next world, we will wonder why we made such a fuss in regards to the things of this world.
Our extension in space and time has a nebulous quality. It is not precise or discrete. We are in a sense a reflection of the universe itself, such that, we connect in ways that are fuzzy and discontinuous. This is not causation, the dynamics are nonlinear resulting in emergent features that are as unpredictable as the weather.
Even explanation is subject to entropy.
The best explanation is an explanation that doesn't require further explanation. The geometry of explanation is fractal. Explanation is a dynamic network of relationships.
Truth is not the infinite fractal, it is the source. The fractal is generated by the potential between truth and chaos.
Is God a mathematician" Is Satan a lawyer (prosecuting attorney)? Did God have a choice in creating the universe? Geometry comes in many flavors and we are only just beginning to see the details. Is there a supreme law that governs all other laws?
There is no reason to assume that the universe is irrational therefor, it is incomplete. Even using the best math we have, we cannot prove anything with complete certainty. What we see are relationships that are either precise or have fluctuation. I suspect that as we move to finer and finer scales, everything fluctuates, even these precise relationships.
I do not bare the burden of proof. All of humanity is exploring the possible solutions to this puzzle (nature of reality) and so far, all we have done is generate more questions, but it is the questions that matter. There is no universal understanding.
You can gauge your level of understanding by the number of paradoxes it generates.
It was easier to love before I really knew what love was. It was easier to risk. As I grew older I collected a vast number of failures all of them unique. I never had a game plan, I just wanted to find someone to share my life with. Personalities are so complex and societal norms are changing. The dovetail joints that hold us together should be well matched, this can be tricky. Time is the enemy, take nothing for granted. Love is the most wonderful and mysterious thing you will ever experience.
Rule of success #1, you have to want it.
The company is much like a vehicle, it can take you where you want to go. When we negotiate, we must do so from a position of strength, not weakness, in other words, if you want this vehicle to run well you must care for it like your livelihood depends on it. There are aspects of this relationship that are non-negotiable. You cannot use a gallon of fuel to go a thousand miles (unless you have talent in the range of Steve Jobs).
It is strange that some people pride themselves on the things they don't care about.
DNA is a transmission from the realm of information into our realm, (the material world). This transmission contains both meaningful information and self referential randomness, (a form of dithering) and it is the relationship of expression or semantics that creates the meaning. The value of the message will reposition the organism in the fitness landscape. This is a dance of meaningful expression.
The fluctuation of permanence in the transmission of genetic information is context dependent. The environment imposes constraints on the variation of gene expression. The organism settles into a location in the fitness landscape however, this landscape is dynamic and the location is part of an attractor basin. Architect: Just how long do you think this peace is going to last? Oracle: As long as it can.
The ability to reason out whether something is true or false follows the idea of power and control. While it is desirable to believe that we possess power, this is an illusion, what we have are degrees of freedom in a field of information and the resolution gives us the degrees of freedom, along with our position in the computation or landscape. We can say that a musical passage has more meaning than some other passage but we cannot say that one passage is true and another is false. There is no excluded middle.
If an axiom is both true and false then, it is at the extreme end of the continuum between truth and chaos, in other words, the coin is not heads or tails because it is always spinning, or the time scale is so large that we will never see the result of the coin toss.
The universe is the transmission of a message. The message is some form of a story (the hero's journey). The purpose is some form of a harvest. This harvest is in the form of information. The information has value and meaning. The value and meaning are context dependent. The dynamics involved drive the process, it is the difference between truth and chaos. These two extremes are ideals not reality as we think of it. Static truth has no meaning unless we can perceive it. This requires a dynamic, at the other extreme (chaos), all meaning is lost.
Matter is, in a sense, a condensation of energy, this energy is the dynamic. If information is the source of all things then, we too are, in a sense, a condensation of information in transmission, this transmission is the dynamic. We are co-authors in a story that is still being written.
Because the quality of relationships in any system varies, we cannot treat an infinite series of any kind in the same manner as a finite series. If I am adding an infinite number of pennies to a jar, as the jar fills, the relationships fluctuate and so the idea of adding an infinite number of pennies, one at a time, must include a system to which the next number is added. If an abstract system could contain an infinite series, would the quality of the relationships in the system change? Time would be another example of a system that must change. With each tick of time, if the system didn't change, then the notion of time becomes meaningless.
Women have a strong desire to be understood, but for men, women will always be a great mystery. It is a condition of the human heart generating a range of emotion that is unfathomable by any measure. Women should celebrate this mysterious quality and allow men to be baffled. The complementary expression of meaning and experience is a dance and each dancer has a different perspective, as they move they can chose to create value or destroy it, but they cannot force each other, they must flow together.
