Puart 1: Understuanding Who uand Whuat You Reually Are 1.00
On these pages you will discover how there is one common denominator that unites, and is the source of, everything in your reality: perspective. But consider that you cannot see anything that is beyond your own perception. You don't know what someone else is really experiencing, for example, and you don't know what they even look like outside of your brain's interpretation of them. If you ask them about what they are really thinking, both your question and their response will still be 100% your perspective. If everything that we can see and know is within us in this way, then a simple understanding of everything might be within our grasp. However, this would also mean that the most fundamental assumption in science â€“ that we can sense and experience reality directly â€“ is a logical fallacy. But can we really understand everything when at least 95% of the universe is a complete mystery to scientists, and we are unable to perceive more than 99% of the electromagnetic spectrum of light, sound, and other energies that make up our reality? Can we understand who we really are when considering the scientific fact that less than 1% of our body's DNA is human and only about 10% of our body's cells are of human origin? Can we understand reality when we have very litle understanding of consciousness, and a third of our life is a mystery because we don't know what dreams are? Can we really know any part of who we are when we have litle understanding of our deeper, subconscious self? Can we understand the universe when time and gravity are just as mysterious as human intelligence and emotions? What does it mean that we can understand the origins of a sandwich we made five minutes ago more than the origins of a belief we've held onto for twenty years? Can we really change our reality as we please when we can sit in a chair but have no idea what is happening with the physics and biochemical reactions of our body to be able to sit in the chair? And, is there any way to understand everything that could be easily understood? Qantum Metaphysics (QMe) answers not only the most fundamental questions that we have about the nature of reality but can also answer more simple and practical questions that we have about our everyday lives. The practical application of QMe, called Logia, will also be discussed, though will be covered more in-depth in another book. One of the core principles of QMe is that when you perceive reality what you are actually sensing is the relationship between the things that you think you are perceiving, not the things themselves. It is easy to look at an object and think you are looking directly at it, without realizing what you are seeing is nearly 100% empty space. It is easy to think of something, like a word or a number, and forget that they are merely representations for other things and only seem real because we are relating them with other things that also seem real. In QMe, for example, 'hot' is the relationship between both a 'hot' and 'cold' and has no meaning by itself. You can't define one without the other; a reality between two illusions. On your way towards understanding the universe you will learn how all of reality is this relationship between illusions, given real life by interaction. You will also learn how creating reality as you wish can be as simple as re-interpreting the relationships that are already there (rather than wasting efort trying to change the illusions that aren't really there) and gain the wisdom of understanding that these illusions are the only way to experience reality. Once you begin to understand the basics of QMe you will learn how it can be applied to anything that you perceive and experience, to change your reality, solve dificulties, create the life you want, and experience a kind of living that you did not before realize was even possible. This book will not just tell you about the Logian way but will also show you how to find this understanding everywhere in your experience so that you can draw your own 3
conclusions. However, people ofen prefer to understand the reality around them in the compelling life dramas and convincing illusions that they experience. These experiences are also very meaningful â€“ despite what they may look like on the surface â€“ but it's always good to at least know what is really going on, how you're actually doing it, and how to 'change the channel' when you need to. QMe is a step beyond quantum physics, which is very slowly becoming a less mechanical way of looking at the universe and more about consciousness and metaphysics as physicists understand more about reality. If metaphysics is about understanding the fundamental nature of being, and quantum is defined as the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction, then quantum metaphysics can be defined as the fundamental process of how we come to know and understand anything. The quest to know and understand the ultimate force in our lives seems to be as old as humanity itself. Philosophers have debated the meaning of existence and the origins of reality for thousands of years. Religions have sought to provide some meaning to life's big questions. Today, cosmologists search for an ultimate theory that explains all physical aspects of the universe in a single law. Despite millennia of thinking about it, the answers to the universe's ultimate questions seem to escape us. If we have been looking for something for thousands of years it wouldn't make sense to continue with the same fundamental assumptions and evolving the same types of questions. It would make more sense to get rid of as many assumptions as possible so that we could ask a diferent dimension of questions. Why continue doing what doesn't really work? Would the 'ultimate answer' really come from the same types of people who ask the same types of questions decade afer decade, or is it more likely to come from a completely unexpected place? Isn't the answer also something we would not expect? QMe seeks to provide a simple illustration of the forces at work in your reality so that the information is more accessible to your understanding. Though there is no end to how complex something can be made, it's important that the foundation of QMe is as simple as possible, especially as we apply it to more complex things. While QMe may be dificult to understand for those of us who are quite sure about the reality we live in, we will try to make this understanding easier by illustrating how the same basic rules apply to anything that can be perceived. You can easily test QMe today to see if it really works for you. Information is born to be free and so naturally tries to propagate in all directions. This makes the true nature of things actually quite easy to discover if we aren't biased or blocking it from reaching us. Information about unlocking the mysteries of your reality should be the essence of freedom. The price of this freedom is your ability to think and decide for yourself what can be applied to your own reality. But we ofen prefer to save mental energy and subscribe to thoughts and beliefs rather than thinking for ourselves, so we ofen don't get the information we need to figure out what's really going on. That said, some later parts of this book may require patience as we introduce new ways of thinking as well as several new concepts about the world around us. Also, some parts will seem repetitive. That's because the entire book is based of of a single equation that could be easily explained in one paragraph. Fortunately, this is a cow with plenty of delicious milk and, like the universe, we will just re-fashion the same basic formula in as many diferent ways as we can so that you can more easily understand these new concepts. Nearly every concept in this book is illustrated with examples. We encourage you to find examples of your own and see how they can be applied to your own life and the things you already know well. Thoughtful experience will always taste beter than any book ever could.
There are three parts to this book plus some important section notes aferwards. Feel free to start with Part 2 if you aren't ready for some of the concepts yet, or skip around as you'd like. Try section 2.01: What is the Meaning of Life? (page 31) or section 2.12: The Key to Wealth (page 46). If you want a litle dose of QMe, try section 1.12: You Experience Your Interpretation of Reality, Not Reality Itself (page 28). Part 1 covers the basics of QMe, from the true nature of reality to perspective. It also details and explains the core 'God Equation' used throughout the book. Part 2 is about happiness, consciousness, finding balance in life, how to become wealthy using QMe, and what it means to be human. Part 3 explains how just about everything you know about the universe – time, space, energy, mater, gravity and more – is wrong. And why. If you enjoy this free book, it would mean a lot to me if you rated it on Amazon. This will make it much easier for others to find it, too: htps://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FB6ML0O (Thank you!) Our journey begins with a story. 1.01
The Story of the Boy uand the Genie
There once was a boy who met a genie. The genie gave him 3 wishes. "I wish for an endless supply of wishes," the boy commanded with a smart grin. "Very well," said the genie, herself smirking, not having heard that one before. "You have an endless supply of wishes, plus two." The boy didn't take long to think of another wish. It was something that he had been thinking of for quite some time. He wished for a spaceship to take him far away from Earth, which immediately appeared. He used it to travel quite far away from his home, his parents, and his friends, and along the way he wished for things like air, food, water, friends to play with, and anything else he wanted. Although the journey to other worlds was fun, afer a while he grew tired and wished for an endless amount of physical energy so that he'll never have to rest. Though even afer that he still had an unlimited supply of wishes lef, which somehow comforted him for now. Yet, he was still quite lonely because he continued to realize that his every experience, from his friends to the air he breathed, was an illusion. “They only came to be and came to play because I wished it,” he thought. It was all an illusion, really. He eventually came back to Earth because he grew lonely and missed the things he could not control. He was actually tired of creating his reality, and missed dreaming about things and geting excited about them. He missed fighting with his brother because it also meant that he liked making up with him and felt good about his ability to defend himself or try to run faster. He missed his homework because it gave him something to do and meant that he would have a sense of accomplishment when he finished it. He missed his parents because even though he didn't agree with everything they said and it was far from a perfect family, they had been there since the beginning and know him beter than anyone else. Along the way, he had somehow lost all hope. But he was hoping to gain it back. Afer considering all of this for quite some time he decided that life is beter lef to its own elements. His last wish from his endless supply was to 'undo' his first wish, and return the endless supply of wishes back to the genie. He destroyed his never-in-a-lifetime chance at geting whatever he wanted. 5
He lived a much happier life afer that for a number of years. But still, in the back of his mind was the lingering thought that it was all an illusion. That somehow his life, which he was now quite happy with, was something that he wished for and wasn't real. Perhaps it was all just a dream that he wished for as he talked in his sleep, and the genie hadn't told him. He wanted to feel more secure than that. He wanted life to be itself, chaotic and wild and good and bad, and to be as real as it could possibly be. He wanted to feel alive. "What could be worse than feeling one does not exist?" he would ask himself. This troubled him far too much and he soon began to lose sleep over it. One day he made a decision. He finally used his second wish. "I wish I never met the genie!" he exclaimed. With those words and a puf of smoke the genie disappeared, never to return again. In some ways it was already too late. Having had an endless supply of wishes, the boy was a genie himself. But for the remainder of his life he never once considered it, nor thought it was even possible. His best wish, by far, was to be able to forget that he ever knew that part of himself and all the things he could do by simply asking for it. And for the remainder of his life he never realized he had one more wish lef. 1.02
We Do Not Actuually Wuant to Be Omniscient, But Become Omniscient
Imagine you could do anything, be anything, know anything, simultaneous to the desire or want or need. Imagine you were an omnipotent being in all imaginable (and unimaginable) ways. How boring and purposeless would that be? How would forgeting who and what you are â€“ and trying to find your way back â€“ be far more exciting? What greater challenge could there be? How much more meaningful would your understanding be if you actually had to work for it? How much more would you be able to interact with something if you interacted with its every detail? How wonderful would it be to feel that every day you find yourself in is new and fresh? How interesting would it be to create wonderful illusions to bring a sense of purpose to your existence? Could limiting your infinite potential make more sense than experiencing infinity? Becoming omniscient is exciting, but actually being omniscient is not only boring, but something that we are deeply afraid of. It would mean that there is nothing else, and you are ultimately and endlessly alone in all directions of space and time. How infinitely bored would you be if you already knew everything and had experienced everything already? We want to forget that we are already everything-at-once so that we have something else to relate to and interact with. If you are everything already, what reasonable choice do you have other than to pretend you are not and put all kinds of obstacles in the way to make it impossible for you to discover who you really are without first going through all the illusions? Without the illusions there would be no experience because there would be nothing else with which to compare. Forming relationships with these illusions to create reality is what you do. The more you relate to and interact with the parts of yourself that you have forgoten, the more meaningful your existence is. 1.03
How Is It Possible to Understuand the Universe?
The central thesis of this book is that everything that could possibly be perceived works in the same simple way because what we are sensing and experiencing is the simplicity of how perspective works. We look at the sun and forget that the sun we see is not only as far away as our own perspective but works in the same way as our perspective does. All we need to do to understand everything is understand how anything comes to have a reality in our 6
perspective. All we need to do to understand the universe is understand what is actually happening when we experience reality. The only thing that is 'universal' is your perspective. So, then, what is the universe? QMe shows us that any 'theory of everything' starts with you. It is in your perspective that the birds chirp, cup falls, sun shines, and everything else happens. As you cannot see or know beyond your own perception, everything that you could possibly experience happens because of it. By understanding the way we perceive of anything we can understand absolutely everything. If the universe is simple at its core, shouldn't an understanding of it be, as well? QMe introduces a new kind of physics that nearly anyone can do – a social physics, if you will – that is a far more powerful tool for the average person than anything ever before conceived. It allows you to perform simple natural language equations in your head, using everyday words and concepts to figure out just about anything you want. Whereas standard physics seeks to explain the simplicity of the universe with complex maths and equations that no one really understands, QMe seeks to democratize an understanding of the universe, life, and all existence using simple methods that are freely accessible to all. The science and technology we come up with are simply ways to evolve an understanding (and a language) of who we really are and help us to relate with the core of our being just as much as politics, entertainment, and every other aspect of human life does. However, we are not machines, holograms, citizens, or stars in the grand scheme of things. We are living, energetic consciousnesses who are in the process of finding out that everything in our perspective is an intimate part of our own equation. QMe presents a unified theory of reality in its equation of perspective, the 'God Equation', which can be applied to anything you can imagine and illustrates the very simple way that your reality works, how things become more complex, and how you can apply this understanding to the life of everyday situations. Although this book ofers some guidance along the way, how you choose to use the information (or not) is entirely up to you. 1.04
Whuat You See Are Interfuaces to Reluationships You Don't See
Maths is thought to be the pathway to understanding all of reality. However, it is the only science that does not need to be based on reality. We will never understand the true nature of reality with complex maths or any of the other sciences, but they are certainly useful in helping us to formulate more interesting questions. Where maths excels is helping us to understand that reality can exist in an abstraction. When we aren't distracted by illusions we can focus more easily on the relationship between things rather than the things themselves. A number by itself is meaningless and is simply an interface to something else that is more complicated. It is the same with words and language. We know that words are representations for other things and do not contain the realities they represent. But ofen, these representations are good-enough approximations for what we want to do. All we need to do is use a simple word like “financing” and someone else can understand the more complicated concept we are trying to convey. The leters used in a language aid in everything from thinking to communicating to understanding, which is done by transforming complex things into simpler things, allowing us an interface with complex things in a much more eficient way. We use interfaces all throughout our reality to make sense of it and help us create and discover meaning in our lives. The remote control to a television, for example, allows someone to interface with the more complicated functions of the device such as re-programming the setings or finding another signal. Using our senses we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell
our surroundings that first come to us as complex electromagnetic signals. You can – using just 26 leters of the English alphabet in your mind to interact with your fingers – write just about anything you can possibly imagine as a way to interface with other experiences. You can literally draw a combination of abstract symbols on a page to change reality, build things, fall in love, retell entire histories, start revolutions, move people to tears, end wars, change your life, inspire people to change their own lives, create music, write a prescription that can save someone's life, create a legacy for your ofspring, and a countless other things. Throughout history, the mixing up of shapes and sounds into language was powerful enough to serve as the foundation for humanity's actions as it adopted agriculture, formed governments, built large pyramidal structures, applied medicine, put Europe in the Dark Ages for 1,000 years, started the Renaissance, bought and sold enslaved Irish, Africans, and others, then brought their progeny out of enslavement, wiped out entire populations, started new countries, made billions of people believe in a particular way of thinking, put humans in space, built planet-wide networks of information creation and sharing, and so much more. On a biological level a mere 4 'leters' of DNA are able to communicate the instructions for life itself and carry the codes of your distant ancestors from hundreds of thousands of years ago. But where we tend to focus on the illusions (the words, numbers, etc.) and get distracted by their infinite potential, QMe focuses on the relationships between the illusions. Using this method we can clearly define who and what we really are, and also use it do re-define ourselves as whatever we wish. You don't need to understand what it all means right now. We will discover the meaning in this book, illustrate its usefulness in everyday life, and also use it to answer some of life's most important questions. Qestions like, “What should I be doing with my life,” or, “How can I interact with people beter?” are just as useful as, “What is time and space?” Time and space are interesting – and will be covered in the last section – but perhaps not as valuable as understanding why your reality is the way it is. What good would understanding the universe be if you could not use that wisdom to improve your life and tweak the details of your experience? What sense would it make to have a deep understanding of the universe and of reality but it not being enough to satisfy feelings of loneliness, pain, or even hunger? The world that we experience is a representation of the reality that we don't experience. But first, let's find out more about things that aren't so obvious. 1.05
How Would the Universe Perceive Itself?
Imagine that you were the universe, and you had no way to 'know' that you existed because there was nothing else to compare yourself with. You might be inclined to divide yourself up into a seemingly infinite number of pieces and forget that you did just that, allowing each piece to interact with the other so that they could form relationships and make the illusion stronger. With strong illusions, your existence is obvious. You would then perceive yourself through every minor detail. You would see yourself as being the smallest of particles and would look to other particles as other individuals, not realizing that you were looking at yourself. These individuals would sometimes find commonalities and group together to form larger individuals, much as the cells and other parts of your body group together and realize themselves not as individuals but as you, but can continue to function as individuals (as you yourself continue to do in your reality). And here you are. At your core, you're very simple and all about relationships. But as you expand outwards and begin to busy yourself with an infinite variety of stuf so that your 8
reality comes to life, interaction and movement take on a greater role. The feeling of existence this interaction provides is quite meaningful, but is also meaningless without the relationships that keep everything centered and balanced. This endless dance of chaos and order provides the energy that makes existence possible. It is here â€“ in the harmonic notes and the measured silence between them â€“ that we find the music of perspective. It should be quite obvious to us now that we can determine the basic nature of all reality by taking a closer look at the only way we could possibly know of reality â€“ perception. And it is no coincidence that the secret of perception is actually hiding in plain sight: in the nature of the human eye. Let's take a look at how reality works from the QMe perspective of the eye:
In modern science, the muscles in the eye expand and contract to allow for more or less light to enter the pupil, as needed. In QMe, information (and energy) is never wasted, and photons of light communicate information to all parts of the eye regardless of how expanded the pupil is. Just as the eye is a way to channel information to the brain, light is a way to channel information to the eye. To illustrate what is going on at the core of reality, let's imagine that any photon of light entering the eye has two states: static and dynamic. When the photon is at rest in its static state it is communicating information about relationships (or, geometry). When the photon is in its dynamic state it is in motion and communicating information about interactions (or, movement). In order to see something, you need to have both kinds of information at the same time. But the more you have about one kind, the less you can have about the other. The more information you have about relationships, the less information you have about interactions. When there are less photons hiting the eye in low-light environments, for example, the pupil of the eye will expand to allow information about the geometry of the environment to dominate. When there is a lot of light from lots of photons hiting your eye in bright environments, your pupil will contract to sacrifice information about geometry for more information about interactions. The outer edge of the eye is best used to perceive movement (such as in peripheral vision) whereas geometry can best be perceived from the center of the eye (such as by looking at something directly). When geometry and movement combine, the result is an energy that we call vision.
The entire universe works in the exact same way, as will be illustrated throughout this book. The forces of Order and Chaos (geometry and movement, or time and space) combine to form energy in the form of light, the present time, Bob Barker, water, and everything else that can be perceived. (This is also basically expressed in Einstein's famous E=MC2 equation, as we will explore in the next section and in Part 3 of this book.) You can also imagine perspective as a wheel. In the center, the wheel appears to turn more slowly. But as you get further and further away from the center, it seems to turn faster and faster. When you are at the center you can see how everything relates and has a common origin, but you won't really know about how things are interacting like you would if you were further away and could see more of the motion going on. (But, of course, the more you know about interactions the less you know about relationships.) When these two kinds of information come together (geometry and motion) then you get perspective. There is no energy (or perspective) without these two opposing forces resisting each other. These two opposing forces essentially allow there to be existence. This is the essence of QMe. Throughout this book we will demonstrate how these two forces work together to form everything in your reality. But first, let's briefly illustrate this process with the example of the physical layers of our planet and its atmosphere:
At the core there is an over-abundance of density (Order) which is met with an overabundance of expansion (Chaos) to balance it out. Each successive cycle balances out even more until a kind of threshold, or equilibrium, is reached. The density near the core of the Earth is surrounded by an expanding layer of liquid, which is itself surrounded by a layer of dense hematite, surrounded by liquid oxygen, then a solid layer, and so on. A dense layer over an expanding layer over a dense layer, and so on. We will explore not only how all of life follows this harmonic, alternating patern but provide you with the easy-to-understand formula (the 'God Equation') so that you can begin 10
to make use of it in your own life. This process is how everything comes into existence and is thus how you know of yourself. It is how you perceive of reality and is the key to understanding the entire universe that exists in your perspective. It gives us all that we know: life, mater, details, emotions, spacetime, DNA and other biological processes, thoughts, desires, people, energy, places, understanding, and everything else. All of these are not things but processes that are happening entirely within your perspective. 1.06
The Energy of Perspective
[Feel free to skip to another section, such as 1.10: From Being the Universe to Being Human (page 24). The next two sections that discuss the essence of reality could be a bit confusing.] When the two kinds of information (relationships and interactions) come together we have something that can be perceived. Let's see it work with Einstein's famous equation, E=MC2, and we'll move on to more Earthly things afer. This equation states that energy is equal to mass (times light speed squared). In QMe, however, energy is what you get when the two opposing forces come together harmoniously. And, light is basic information about things. It is no coincidence that we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell, think, and know of things because of photons of light. In QMe, light either carries information about relationships or about interactions. When it carries information about relationships we call it mass. When it carries information about interactions we call it velocity. When it carries both, it is transformed into something else we call energy (among other things, as we'll see later). What Einstein may not have known at the time is that a photon has two speeds: the speed at the center of the photon and the speed on the edge – or, the speed of relationships and the speed of interactions, respectively. This is somewhat hinted at in the dual nature of light (in the geometry of particles and the motion of waves) but isn't really explored in quantum physics. However, it is essential for an understanding of the nature of reality. At the center of a photon space is contracted and time is expanded. The very center is abstract and beyond perspective, but normally things hang out just outside of the center. This makes for a very, very small photon and also allows all relationships to exist in the same time. The speed just outside the center is commonly referred to as 'light speed'. The speed closer to the edge is a square of the light speed, the C2 in his equation. However, this is also 'light speed' and is the maximum velocity of information before it changes into something else. (Considered instantaneous, for all intents and purposes, such as with the force of gravity – also in the photon cycle – needing to propagate much faster than the light we see. From our physical perspective it will look as though the information was being compressed, or folded, and moving at light speed. This compression of information is gravity, as we'll see in Part 3.) Similar to what we know about an electron, a photon has more than one 'energy level'. In order for the information of a photon to jump to the next level, so to speak, it needs to double itself via motion (increasing chaos) until it approaches its own square (the square of the atrest component). The speed of light is not the speed of light as we know it, but the diference between the two kinds of forces (if the units are transformed) that allows it to transmit information. We see the information only while it is being transmited. Light does not really travel, but interacts and relates. Further, there is no real 'spin' of a photon or electron but an illustration of the movement of information as it relates (geometry+motion). Another way to look at this apparent motion 11
is to imagine streams of spiralling bits of information coming from the center of a photon as information is exchanged between the photon and other photons. Just as a child could swing higher and higher by first rocking back and forth slowly, information at the center swings between chaos and order to increase its 'motion' and propagate itself to higher levels and communicate at further distances. In order to increase speed it needs to 'swing' in one direction. This process, to us, looks like particles are spinning when it is the information that appears to spin.
We can measure the speed at which some of the information propagates, but not all. We can observe and measure light travelling at 'light speed', for example, but not travelling just below the square of 'light speed' because the energy is beyond the reach of the perspective we are measuring and observing from. If you were to pick up a phone and call your sister in Miami while you were in Dublin, we would not say that you travelled at light speed. Another observer, however, may wonder how you were able to have an efect in both Dublin and Miami at nearly the same time. The information propagating through the network from the two points could even be traced, with enough sleuthing. From your location in Dublin you were able to change something in Miami, but in actuality you wouldn't have needed to take a single step. A photon is the medium through which information propagates. It doesn't move in spacetime but the information it sends out has a velocity as it propagates through space. A photon provides information to all other photons, but there is only resistance with those types of photons that don't have its type of information. When there is no resistance, there is no result from the interaction and we can therefore say that it wasn't sent to those photons at all. The light we see is what happens when the two complementary types of information meet (the processing, so to speak). The speed of light is the measurement of the resistance between these two as the information propagates, not the speed of the photon itself.
In QMe, what is called mass is simply light that is relating to things far more that it is interacting with things. It is information that lacks velocity and direction. Because of this, you can consider mass the 'weight' of relationships. Anything that has velocity and motion is light that doesn't have lots of relationship-mass to slow it down. When the two pieces of information come together (MC2) we get energy (E). When it contracts again in another cycle, we get the same thing in another form: mater. In this way, light is both a wave in space (chaos) and a particle in time (order) simultaneously. A wave without structure is just motion, whereas a particle without movement is just mass. A photon would need to be both a particle and a wave in order to exist, as we need both kinds of information – interactions and relationships – to have perception of something. Without both, it 'exists' but cannot be perceived. In QMe, chaos is simply the square of order. The same goes for chaos and order called by other names. Space is the square of time, capacity is the square of ability, profit is the square of capital, atraction is the square of repulsion, etc. Chaos is order in motion, and order is chaos at rest. One side tries to infinitely expand the other side (essentially, multiplying itself), while the other side tries to fold, contracting it. From this, we get the harmonic resistance that we call reality. 1.07
The God Equuation uand Whuat It Meuans for Your Reuality
To a Logian, perspective isn't just the way you see something, it is the key to everything. Where logical people usually tend to focus on measurement to understand the things around them, Logians focus more on relationships and understand that measurement without perspective is meaningless. Perspective is what you get when you apply paterns (or, geometric movements) to something in order to perceive it and explore those paterns to make them seem more real. [Illustrated in section 1.08] QMe has many correlations in biology, physics, chemistry, human behaviour, society, religion, engineering, and more. Although QMe isn't derived from any of these, we'll begin with a novel example of something that many are already familiar with from ancient religious texts, as applied to our elementary forces and God Equation. In the beginning, Nothing (a void; a perfectly balanced and harmonic “holy spirit”) pretended to forget what it was in order to exist. From this primary division we have chaos and order. 13
From the resistance of the two forces pulling against each other, we have perspective.
Simultaneously, chaos tries to multiply order, and order tries to limit chaos. When chaos tries to multiply order we can see the motion unveiled, which in QMe becomes a child force called interaction. When order tries to limit chaos we can see a relationship, which becomes a child force called structure. The two parent forces and two child forces relating and interacting together gives us the QMe God Equation, the process of all reality:
The core of reality is simple: perspective. The essence of perspective is the same as it is with your eye: one thing at the center that can relate more than it can move (i.e., you, a point of observation) but is surrounded by a reality that is always in motion. You can also think of this process of reality like a film, where the magic happens in the relationship between frames rather than in the frames themselves.
You could say that you, as the Void, just want to take a picture of yourself to see what you look like. But your camera is so awesome that you don't just take a photo; you make an exact copy. You then realize that if the copy did the same thing, and so on, there would be an 14
uncontrollable infinity. You then decide that in order to limit this potentially endless expansion and focus your existence so that you could actually experience it, you need to limit infinity. However, this is a bit dificult because you cannot just delete the original copy. That's because chaos is still trying to expand while you're trying to limit it. It has already been integrated into all reality. Here's what happens, instead: The result of this is that there is a relationship between the two and a motion (from one half to the other) because they are essentially the same thing pretending to be diferent things. The relationship adds structure to the equation, while the motion adds interaction. Thus, reality is born.
The patern of reality is not only obvious in things like water and protein molecules, DNA, virii, the solar system, and spacetime, but also obvious in everything that can be perceived, once you understand that what you are seeing is not a molecule water or the Sun or a picture frame for example, but your perspective. You can only see and experience your perspective. The basic meaning of the God Equation is that reality is relationships in motion. It illustrates how the alternating positive and negative energy flows form a resistance that can be perceived as something. From it, we can understand how reality works at every level, from the more simple:
...to the more complex:
We can use it to understand the position of the planets in the solar system, the meaning of space and time, and the four states of mater:
The more complex the reality, the more processes that are used to make it up, and the more equations that we would need to understand it. However, at every level the same basic process is taking place. Everything in your perspective conforms to this model, from sub-atomic particles to talking with your best friends about a new television show to your body to the way you walk along the street to entire civilizations and the motion of distant galaxies. 1.08
In QMe, the process of forming reality is known as SPPI. This is short for Structure, Potential (Chaos), Potential (Order), and Interaction. The basic physical shape of SPPI is known in science as a torus, the fundamental form of harmonized energy flow. In QMe, the positive and negative energy flows are each one torus,
forming a truly balanced process that harmonizes the basic forces in reality.
SPPIs are found throughout the universe. Sometimes it is more obvious.
And sometimes it is less obvious.
SPPI systems are how perspective works. Anything that can be perceived is part of a SPPI system that interacts with other systems. At the center of each system is a representation (“reality”) discovered from the resistance of two opposing forces. The SPPI process that illustrates our equation is called poiesis. Poiesis can be thought of as the emergence of something (mater, for example) out of other things that have also emerged from other things. Like a cell or an arm, it is a parent system with systems both under and above it. [From Wikipedia] Poïesis means "to make" in ancient Greek. (creation, from poiein, to make) This word, the root of our modern "poetry", was first a verb, an action that transforms and continues the world. Neither technical production nor creation in the romantic sense, poïetic work reconciles thought with matter and time, and man with the world. The following illustrates the process of poiesis in a chaos graph (using a spiral) of the human reproductive cycle. It begins at the botom lef when the two strongly opposing forces begin to seek out a balance. At human conception, a patern is reached as the two forces ease into harmony. [See Notes]
In the beginning of the human reproductive cycle there is an abundance of chaos (via hundreds of millions of sperm cells, produced by their own SPPI processes) followed by overcontraction (destruction of all but a few sperm), then more expansion (via the acquisition of the ability to fertilize the egg called capacitation) then more contraction (the dissolution of the zona pellucida for a single sperm), then more expansion (via rapid cell division called cleavage) followed by contraction (called compaction) as a balance between the two extremes is found and a fertilized egg implants into the uterus, and so on. This poiesis repeats a number of times over the course of several months until a harmony between chaos and order has been achieved and the reproductive cycle is complete, whereby the mother experiences actual physical contractions and baby is pushed out into another system. Chuaos (expuansion)
hundreds of millions of sperm calls
survival of only a few sperm
dissolution of the zona pellucida
rapid cell division
...and so on (alternating cycles of Chaos and Order)
It may not seem obvious that the process of reproduction of another human being is exactly the same as how everything else in the universe is formed, but it is the same because the beginning and end of everything that you can perceive is entirely in your perspective. It is 100% within your perspective. SPPIs are how your perspective gives paterns to the Void so that you have a reality. This way, you can interact to form relationships with other parts of yourself (that you have 20
forgoten about) in order to fold them into something more simple and repeat the process again. We don't need to understand anything in detail, only how the relationships and motions work. You don't need not know subconsciously how much the particles in a sandwich weigh before eating it, stripping the sandwich of its electrons in a poiesis that we perceive as tasting only as good as the harmony that made it happen. You can breathe without being aware of how you breathe, and think and jump without being conscious of the many physical and biochemical sub-processes involved. Whenever something is too complicated to perceive directly (meaning, it requires too many interactions, and thus too much energy) you simply fold the complexity by representing it in a way that you can more easily perceive. Rather than being conscious of all the cells in your body, for example, you need only be conscious of your identity. 1.09
Energy is Informuation About Spuace uand Time (uand Perspective)
[Feel free to skip to the next section.] Energy is not a force, but information about spacetime. In QMe space and time do not exist independently but only in relationship to each other. Here we will see how the two forces form what we know as spacetime. Chaos represents space and can be thought of as an endless spiral in three dimensions. It has information regarding interactions, but not information about relationships. Order represents time and can be thought of as a polar grid divided into 24 phases (like a clock). It has information regarding relationships, but not information about interactions. Space is time in motion, while time is space at rest. When we see light, we are seeing information about spacetime unfold. Light travelling through space is the velocity at which information about time is accelerated, whereas time is the rate at which information about space is folded. Using motion, chaos seeks to expand away from the void (the center of the grid in the following illustration, and the center of every cycle), while order seeks to contract towards it to begin the cycle again. Space knows the way in which things are repelled away from the center (a spiral, or vortex) while time knows how things are organized relative to the center. Again. each needs information that the other has in order for there to be a reality.
This energy-forming dance of chaos and order is inside every process for both living and
non-living things in spacetime. The same process that applies to the planets in our solar system also applies to DNA. DNA stores and transmits (geometry and motion) biological information. You could say that the exchange of information via DNA is part of our biological 'energy' that allows us to emerge into human form and continue poiesis as we grow, age, and die.
Why does life emerge from the exchange of biological information? When biological information is exchanged, we have biological perspective. Without information about something, there is no perception of it. Without information about our biological existence, we do not have a biological reality. In order for something to have reality, it must share the necessary information about its interactions and relationships. Physical information makes for a physical reality. We are beings, but we are always in the process of becoming. All that is needed is to share the information that is needed for it to exist. If you are a dust mite, for example, you could begin to be something else by exchanging the information you have for whatever it is you wanted to be. The only limitation, therefore, would be your awareness of that information so that the exchange could occur. This is the secret to changing your reality, as we will explore again later. However, this sharing of information can be postponed and is also part of a natural cycle. Build-ups and blockages of any type of information can occur to make for what looks like an imbalance but what is actually just what happens when one of the two fundamental elements is time. Chromosomes, for example, will become more highly negatively oriented as they atract lots and lots of DNA to their centromeres, or nucleus, (order/contraction), which builds up 'potential energy' on the extreme positive side (chaos/expansion) that can be used in rapid cell division1. Within this cycle are sub-cycles that can be harmonious or not, independent from the information of the parent cycles. [For more information on energy, refer to Part 3: Exploring the Universe with Qantum Metaphysics]
From Being the Universe to Being Humuan
Let's step back (way back) and discuss why the process of becoming All-That-Is looks more like a permanent rest stop on Highway Human-being 101. The following is an illustration of what happened (or, rather, what is happening now). Step 1: The void. Without any relationship, there is no perspective. Thus, you do not exist. You aren't even a “nothing”, because even naming it would make it something.
Step 2: You realize, “I am nothing.” Beter yet, “This is nothing-in-particular”. You are now omniscient and omni powerful, as all of existence is within your gaze. But don't get too excited; you are the God of Nothing.
The highly negative orientation of a chromosome may also give it its unbalanced shape.
Step 3: In order to be able to seem like you really exist and not just think you do, you divide yourself up and forget that you did just that. Now you have some friends.
Step 4: It doesn't really mater what you divided yourself into. It is random, anyway. But afer a while those “other” shapes begin to take on qualities of their own. Each part also forgets what it (as You) did.
Step 5: Perception is interaction, which forms relationships. You perceive first those paterns that are most like your small slice of “me”. (For example, if you are “red” you will focus on red first, then other colors afer.) Because perception happens in a logical way, a logical narrative forms (geometry+motion). A point becomes a line becomes a box becomes something you can put something else inside. It becomes real because you can interact with it in diferent ways and think about where it came from and where it is going. It is only 'real' in relationship to other things that also seem real. In a universe of illusions, it's all reality.
Step 6: As you interact with the complexity of the experience and the experience becomes more complex, you end up focusing on its details so much you forget that the story isn't real. The illusion becomes the reality. Complexity makes for reality, but the true reality is between the illusions (in the relationships) not in the things themselves that you randomly made up. The more involved in the drama you are the more real it seems. Now your focus is so intense you have forgoten that you are everything.
Step 7: As a human, you focus on the interpretation of the relationships rather than the relationships themselves. Although you are perfectly free to interpret the relationships however you want, you are so focused on the things that you can experience with your perception you don't actually sense reality. Instead, you are focused on the compelling dramas, because the complexity of relationships and interaction makes you feel like you exist.
Step 8: You interpret these metaphysical relationships as human relationships with family, friends, work, self, society, etc. If you had another kind of perspective you would interpret the metaphysical relationships in another kind of way. There is nothing wrong with any interpretation, of course. That was the purpose all along: to feel like you exist through 26
relationships with the parts of yourself that you have willingly forgoten.
Everything that can be perceived is done so through this two-phase cycle where one side seeks to expand to keep from becoming Nothing while the other side seeks to contract to a state of complete balance, starting the cycle all over again. Neither infinity nor complete balance is possible, but the illusion must prevail if each force is to efect a resistance that is the reality that we experience. 1.11
The Wuay of Logiua
So what's the point of being a Logian and becoming omniscient if understanding everything is so boring and purposeless? Again, the point is not to be omniscient but be aware that one is already. The journey is the interesting part, as human life can atest. The purpose of the Logian way is to experience what is called equilibrative spacetime consciousness (or ESC), a state of being that is a more harmonious balance of chaos and order that allows us to not only be aware of the illusions but to create reality directly. Although we don't need distracting illusions and dramas to feel like we exist, once you can can understand reality you can change it and re-interpret the relationships that are already there. â€œEverything is here all ready. You just aren't seeing it yet!â€? By understanding how your perspective works, you can re-interpret the existing relationships to build your own illusions and dramas in whatever way you want. Everything that exists, from atoms to food to spacetime to objects to energy to ideas and more, are all interpretations of these relationships that we can consciously refashion. Rather than trying to change things that aren't really there (such as things we see), Logians focus on relationships between people, places, and things and their interactions with reality. Logia can be thought of as the next stage of human evolution. Humanity is always evolving. The next stage of humanity may not be Logia but it will likely be something that either simplifies our reality or makes it more complex. There is litle evidence to suggest that the average person would be able to lead a happy, healthy life inside a more information-rich environment than we have today. We seem to have reached the emotional, biological, and psychological limits of how complicated and busy our everyday lives can be. Although we could say society is more complex today than it was a thousand years ago, humanity still doesn't understand the basic reality it exists in. The information that gets to us has more complexity but less value. We interact more with interfaces like technology and media, but end up with trivial, empty relationships with the people and things in our reality. The efect of puting more layers between ourselves and others is that we eventually lose sight of who we 27
really are. Logia is about integrating an understanding of the forces at work in your reality to provide more meaning to your everyday experience. While we don't believe it is possible to be the universe or know everything, we do believe humanity has the potential and all of the tools it needs to realize the true nature of existence now and use that understanding to greatly enhance human being and civilization.
The next few sections will explore some of Logia's most basic understandings. 1.12
You Experience Your Interpretuation of Reuality, Not Reuality Itself
Reality is representation. What we call reality is an interpretation of something else that we do not experience, nor need to experience. You may look around and think you are experiencing things as they are, but what you're actually experiencing are things that interface with a true reality that cannot be perceived directly. You could say that your perspective creates reality and does so in the most eficient way imaginable (by cleverly leveraging illusions). But really, you don't create reality at all. You don't need to. Besides, experiencing reality directly – even for a nanosecond – would take far more energy than has ever been created since the beginning of time. You only need to represent something that you cannot really perceive and then interact with the representation. It would be as if someone described to you how something looked and you had to make a drawing of it based on a vague and unreliable description. You could have drawn a dancing squirrel and it wouldn't make any diferent because nobody had had any direct experience with it anyway, and all that matered is how people relate to and interact with what you drew. In fact, your drawing would become the reality of the object because it would be the only real interface people had with that unseen and unknown thing. To your mind, the representation (the illusion) becomes more important than the reality. If someone made a more accurate drawing somehow, it would likely be rejected and ignored because the value of the drawing is not in its accuracy but in how it relates to and interacts with others. To illustrate this trick of the mind more simply let's imagine that you are looking at a digital photo that you took of a good friend of yours. The image obviously represents your friend and is, without question it seems, the person that you know. The image captures as many of her beauties and imperfections as any image can. Could you then say, “This is my friend”? Probably not afer considering it for a minute. You might say that what you are seeing is only a representation of your friend, and that your friend was somewhere else (i.e., not inside your phone or computer). Your friend is more than the representation, or so it would seem. But what if at that moment she called you on the telephone? Surely, that voice could only be one person. She knows who you are, can recall times you've shared together, and knows things you've not told anyone else. It most definitely has to be her. Even then, you may be aware that what you're hearing on your phone is your phone's representation of her voice electronically transmited rather than her actual voice, and your brains' interpretation of those signals. But what is her actual voice? Can you really know what it is? If she was standing in front of you talking about what happened to her today, would you be hearing her actual voice or listening to your own interpretation of it? When you touch her are you feeling her or your mind's interpretation of the electrical impulses received when you appear to touch her? Thinking of this further it could be said that, despite all the pictures you've seen, countless hours on the phone, and times you've met her in person you've never actually experienced her for who she really is. You've only ever experienced your interpretation of something else. In actuality, you've experienced your perspective. Of course, your friend is far more than your 28
interpretation of her. But what would that be? We mistake our interpretation of something for its true reality as a mater of habit. It is all we have ever done, so we don't know how not doing it would be possible. If what we call a thing's reality is actually a representation of something else, it is an illusion. But, fortunately for us, that means only illusion exists and there is no such thing as a 'true reality'. Reality is only representation.2 Reality, for all intents and purposes, does not exist. We can say that it exists, but exists beyond perspective. Illusion is the only reality that we have and can get valid feedback from. But because we are able to interact with and relate to illusions we can reason that they are real enough, good enough for whatever we want to do, and are interfaces with something greater that we cannot perceive. Take away the representation, however, and the relationships would still be there. That's because the illusions 'control' reality. For example, taking away the nucleus of a cell in your body (its supposed "command center") will have no efect, and it will continue to function as normal because the relationships are generally unafected. If you sat in your living room, the universe would exist (literally) within the entirety of your perspective. It would be folded into your current reality in ways you cannot imagine. At that moment there would be nothing outside of your living room (or even behind you) until you related to and interacted with it. Everything that existed would be represented by the relationships that you interpret.3 Perception is really the means by which you interpret that which does not exist. In this way, the illusions you experience allow you your only interface with what is true. Your entire perspective is an illusion but is also your reality. This maters because it makes changing your reality not only possible, but very easy. 1.13
A Fuamily of Reluationships
In order to perceive of anything we must first be able to relate to it in some way. If it is not relative to us then its motion will escape our radar and no exchange of force will take place (from our perspective). We cannot perceive of what we cannot imagine, because what we are perceiving is our interpretation of reality. If we cannot relate to something that well, it is simply ignored or replaced with something that we can relate to beter so that we don't waste energy trying to perceive it. There is a whole universe of energies that surround us, penetrating every atom in our bodies. Yet, we only perceive those energies in a way that is relative to our perspective. Although the amount of high-energy gamma radiation around us is tremendous, we would be more afected by someone turning on a cheap light in a dark room. A burst of radiation from a distant galaxy, for example, will go entirely unnoticed for what it is but may be interpreted by your perspective as a new protein that is interpreted again as feeling diferently today about tomatoes than yesterday. We perceive the distant universe in our immediate perspective by folding its complexity to the point where it is relative to us. We could say that our bodies are made up of stardust but what we'd be missing is that the world around us is filled with distant stars, folded up neatly into what we can see here and now. We don't feel the motion of our atoms any more than we feel the motion of distant planets, and don't need to. What we experience has no power by itself. The power of your experience is only in how you 2 3
That brings us closer to the origin of the word “real” which is, “belonging to the thing itself” or “relating to things”. Another way to say it is that reality is procedurally-generated via the SPPIs algorithm, makes it logical and consistent, and seemingly endless.
interpret it. Two people experiencing the exact same thing, for example, could be afected in entirely diferent ways because of their diferent interpretations. The subconscious aspect of our mind has an inherent understanding of the relationships between things but isn't aware how we consciously interpret those things. It doesn't mater whether you interpret a set of metaphysical relationships as a flower, 2 hours of playing games, or a shoe. All that maters is how you relate to and interact with something in your reality, not what it seems like. When we value something not because of its physical properties but for its relationships, then we have begun to understand reality. When we learn to perceive of relationships then we have begun to learn how to perceive of and be conscious of ourselves. Did you ever have a memory of something that didn't really happen? Or maybe you visited somewhere for the first time that you could have sworn felt exactly like a place in another city. Perhaps you smelled something that brought back old memories, or saw someone or something you've never seen before and had a strong, inexplicable feeling. Perhaps we are talking about déjà vu again, where you are seeing past the illusions and sensing the relationships between them. A place that you're standing in could look entirely diferent from another place that you've been but it feels like you've been there before. To your subconscious, the two places are the same because the relationships are about the same (or similar). You really have been there before, but consciously you don't see how that is possible. In a greater reality there is only one spacetime interpreted in a countless variety of ways. When you've found a way to interpret your current experience diferently, you've found a new reality. Whatever reality you seek really is right before your eyes. With dreams prety much the same thing is happening. You dream of being a wheel rolling into a brick wall under a clown hanging of of a basketball hoop and think it's weird because you're randomly interpreting it from the perspective of your conscious mind rather than the geometry of relationships that is experienced subconsciously. Everything that you think you remember about the dream is your conscious interpretation of the relationships that you experienced. Your dream self has never perceived, and knows nothing about, clowns and basketball hoops, and didn't dream about them. 1.14
The Reuality of the Illusion
In the cognitive sciences it has been demonstrated that a simulation of something will make the brain react in the same way as it would react to the 'real' version of that thing. Although your brain can distinguish between an illusion and what we call reality it responds similarly to both. Our brain knows that both are illusions but consciously we do not think that way. And interestingly, the brain maps what you think happened rather than what actually happened, and may not know the diference between the two kinds of experiences. 4 Your brain doesn't care about what you think is reality, because what seems fake and what seems like the real thing is the same type of illusion. Is mentally humming a tune a reality or an illusion as compared with the 'real' song? How about listening to the song on the radio? Or over a telephone? Or listening on your headphones? Or seeing a live performance of the song? All of these are representations, and each is an illusion as valid as the others. There is no true reality of the song because there doesn't need to be. We aren't emotionless if we see a painting of someone being hurt, even though we know it is a painting and not the real thing. Even an animated movie could bring us to tears and could change our lives. If you see an onion next to a painting of an onion, which is more relative to your perspective? The onion that smells like paint, or the one that can make your 4
“Brain Maps Perceptions, Not Reality” htp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2003/11/031110410631920.htm
eyes water? If you're a chef, then perhaps the onion you can cook with is more relative. If you're an artist then perhaps the onion in the painting is more to your taste. Only your conscious mind is concerned with reality because it isn't aren't aware of what reality actually is. 1.15
The Purpose of Perspective
We perceive in order to exist. We have perspective simply because we are not able to perceive of reality. This is the value of consciousness. If one thing relates to something else then it is conscious. We are not conscious because we are biological organisms or have brains with which to think and eyes to see from but because we can relate to and interact with something else. Because a representation is a stand-in for something else, and that something else is a stand-in for something else, and so on, it is of no particular importance what kind of relationships we explore or interactions we have, only how balanced they are. This means that we could relate to a constipated demon in a way that is more in harmony with our overall perspective than relating to a solemn angel, for example. Happiness comes from being able to balance the forces in your reality, not from forcing your reality to be 'good'. The way you perceive of something depends on the information that is being exchanged with it. The more you interact with and relate to something the closer you are pulling it into your immediate perspective. Consciousness is perspective. As we interact with our perspective, so does our reality become. Puart 2: Being Humuan 2.01
Whuat is the Meuaning of Life?
Your life is as you make it. That is to say, you are free to interpret the relationships that already exist however you want and interact with them accordingly. What is important is not what you see when you look around but how you are relating to the reality you find yourself in. Life is not about finding yourself, but finding yourself in others. When you understand that everything in your perspective is an illustration of who and what you are then you have discovered a very important part of the equation. The missing pieces of your true identity are not in your name, how you look, where you live, what your job is, or how many friends you have. Although you can only ever experience the extent of your own perspective, the true “you” is everywhere in your reality in the relationships between the things that you perceive. The important question is, “How am I relating with the reality around me?” The meaning of life is not to be confused with what things appear to be on the surface. How we interpret things is diferent from the actual meaning behind them. Something that appears to be bad could actually be very beneficial to your life, for example. In order to uncover more of the mystery we can ask, “Are the individual things and experiences in my reality balanced with my entire perspective?” Is the relationship of the house with your family harmonious? Does the mortgage balance with the family's needs? Are the members of the family doing things together? Are you doing something because you want to or because it makes sense to do, all things considered? Most importantly, do you realize that the things you see and experience are diferent interpretations of yourself? Do you realize that when you see something you like or hate, or whatever, you are experiencing who you are? Who you are is all about what you're interacting with, because you can only ever interact with your own perspective. 31
Whuat is Huappiness?
Let's take a paragraph and use the previous example of where civility in society comes from to find out a bit more about how happiness is born. In society, civility is the balance between chaos and order via laws. Rather than total anarchy (chaos) or totalitarian rule (order), there is a harmonic balance between the two that society can make use of. The laws help to keep the balance, and people are free to do whatever they want within the laws. People won't always get what they want, but in this way society generally won't get too out of control and civility can flourish.
In life, happiness is the balance between chaos and order via structure. Rather than total chaos or order in your life, there can be a harmonic balance between the two that can lead to a state of happiness. The structure in your life helps to keep the balance, and you're free to do whatever you want within it. You won't always get what you want, but your life won't get too much out of control and happiness can flourish.
Although the balance between chaos and order is important, how we structure the way we live can mean everything to how we feel about our lives, and whether or not we would ultimately feel that we are happy. The change you need in your life could be as simple as making a plan or a budget, or simply introducing yourself to strangers more ofen. We ofen think that we need more of something in order to be happy. More money, more friends, more love, more time, more control, etc. But Logia tells us that, ofen, what we need is the opposite of what we think we need. When you feel you don't have enough money, a higher salary probably wouldn't help much â€“ you might just end up spending more money anyway. When there is too much stress from school or work, working smarter or studying harder probably won't help. In relationships, sometimes loving someone less and allowing your feelings room to breathe may make the relationship stronger. And without silence placed artfully between the notes of a piece of music there is just a bunch of garbage that you wouldn't want to listen to. We can try to work as much as possible, love as much as possible, and do things we enjoy as much as possible but this way of living is unlikely to result in balance, and therefore a state of happiness. If you're not happy, something is out of balance. To achieve balance in your life you either need more order or more chaos. But how do you find out what you need? 2.03
When There's Too Much Chuaos in Your Life
Sometimes you must limit yourself in order to take control of your infinite potential. Without 32
controls in place, your potential is chaotic and has a dificult time being in harmony with your experience. If you have an over-abundance of chaos in your perspective it means that there's too much velocity and motion in your life, which can lead to all kinds of conditions that can make life suck. Running a marathon is okay sometimes, but it would be quite dificult trying to eat, drink, and do everyday stuf at the same time. You're also much more likely to make mistakes and fall on your ass. But so many people live their lives in chaos and don't realize how much efort and energy is actually being wasted trying to do and be so many things at once. The force of chaos is equal to space, which in QMe is the same as velocity and motion. Too much of it is not only unhealthy but is also addictive. It is easy to believe that more of something must be beter. We have an innate desire to feel alive, and chaos ofen helps to satisfy that. Let's imagine that you have only a limited amount of perspective at each moment in the form of 100 straws. You have 1 straw for every 1% of your perspective. Think about all of the things that you are handing out straws to every day. If you're like many people, you give a big chunk of your straws to work. Not only do you spend a great deal of time preparing for work, maintaining your work clothes and stuf, commuting, and of course doing work, but also thinking about work, talking about it with others, recovering from work-related stress (which is probably more time than you realize), and perhaps even dreaming and worrying about it sometimes. Add up all the straws that are marked 'work' and it may even be half of the total of your perspective. Spend 5 hours throughout the day using your mobile device? 20 straws. Another 4 hours watching television and media? 16 more straws. Afer all of this, how many straws are you lef with? It doesn't mean that your life is out of control if you have only a few straws lef. But it may be a sign that you are addicted to chaos, because where your straws go is most ofen your decision. The following are some signs that there might be too much chaos in your perspective. You: might:
have a fear of being alone. To test this, are you unable to sit alone in a chair with only your thoughts for 30 minutes without being distracted? Would you prefer to spend 30 minutes 'doing something. anything!' rather than being alone with your thoughts? Or do you always need to be in a romantic relationship or with someone, or out with your friends?; have a fear of silence with others. You feel uncomfortable with breaks in conversation; have a need to stay busy; fidget or have physical ticks (nail-biting, leg-shaking, etc.); feel stressed when you interact with something that you hate or don't like; find it stressful to hear opinions and viewpoints that contradict your own; spend more than a couple of hours a day using mobile devices, absorbing media, or driving a vehicle. (These amplify chaos by allowing you to interface with more chaotic elements at a greater speed.); have an over-active imagination; sometimes add onto what someone said or did with your own story; over-emphasize appearances, including your own; are atracted to people and places with an abundance of resources (wealth, power, or fame); love the drama of other people's lives; think your feelings are more important than what makes sense overall for everyone (or 33
you think your own feelings make the most sense); are easily ofended, or limit or reject talking with others because they might ofend you; have dificulty falling asleep because you're thinking too much; consume lots of sugar in foods and drinks; or experience anxiety easily.
The more interactions you have going on, the less value each relationship has. The more straws you give away, the less your own energy is able to radiate from your core. If each straw represents an hour of your time through which your consciousness is always flowing, when you are lef with only a few straws then the energy going through each one that remains must be pushed through more forcefully. If each straw was a vein in your body and you had only a few, you'd be dead! But a chaotic life is, in a counter-intuitive way, a slow death. If not of your body, then of your perspective. In order to reduce much of the chaos in your life you can pay more atention to what you are actually using your time for. The following is a grid of a well-balance life. It divides personal time into both chaotic and orderly elements, with 12 hours for each. Some aspects – like work or rest – need more time allocated to them, while others require less. Let's take a look to see how many hours a day this means for each kind of personal relationship.
Employment, volunteering, projects
Sleeping, or relaxation at home, work, school
Life improvement and maintenance
Eating, education, cleaning, life planning
Self improvement and maintenance
Health, reading, self-help, hygiene and image
Friends, extended family, colleagues, etc.
Close family, best friends, etc.
Humor, games, media
Daydreaming, meditation, being lazy
Extended social engagements Close social engagements Entertainment Silence
You can mix the hours around, but be sure to take it from the same side. If, for example, you need to work 8 hours a day (chaos) then you can take out two hours from 'Life Improvement and Maintenance' (also chaos), perhaps by learning a new skill at work or working towards a promotion. Or if you prefer to spend more than 1.5 hours with your friends on Saturdays, do something with them in the 'Life Improvement' or 'Entertainment' category. There's nothing wrong with the occasional imbalance, though, as long as it is generally balanced. We can also get rid of complexity in our lives by finding ways to interface with it. In QMe this is called folding complexity and we do this all the time without realizing it. Using language is one way that we fold complexity, breaking down complicated concepts into simple words and phrases. Using a graphical interface on a computer is another way. Looking at a hand instead of the countless interactions of sub-atomic particles that the hand represents is another. In another way, if you have a company with 75 employees you can either deal with all employees directly (chaos) or find an interface like a manager or liaison (order). Folding complexity actually allows you to scale up your velocity because you then have more time for each interaction. [We'll talk more about how this trick pertains to creating wealth in your reality in section 2.12.] Also, many of us who have too much chaos going on in our lives have an excess of emotions. Emotions are not inherently chaotic but, to a Logian, they are undefined thoughts. We tend to think of emotions as not only human nature but completely natural because we can feel them, without thinking of how out-of-balance many of our own emotions actually are. Is it human nature to chew on our own arm, just because we can? Nature doesn't do what it feels like doing. It does what makes sense, all things considered. It doesn't need to understand everything, such as how the sun works. It need only understand how the complex nature of the sun is folded into sunlight, and then interact with the sunlight, regardless of whether it 'feels' like interacting with the sun today. So many of us are slaves to our emotions, thinking that they belong with us just because we feel them. Choosing to feel a certain way just so happens to produce more of it, so then we think that happened naturally too. We end up following feelings that didn't actually have a clear definition to begin with and so we ofen end up not knowing how we actually feel about things. Our bodies ofen have a beter sense for balance than our conscious thoughts do. Afer a long day we feel tired. When we need nourishment we feel hungry. We can feel comfort or discomfort about something or someone without being aware of why. Your body wouldn't work if it was powered by emotions. It's powered by sense, just like nature. If you had to choose between taking a 6-hour flight on a plane piloted by someone that was more emotional versus someone that was more logical, what would be your choice? You would probably not choose a pilot that acted from emotions, yet both are imbalanced. A logic-only pilot could deduce that there was no way to safely land the plane afer a critical malfunction and give up trying altogether. A pilot acting on the balance of sense instead of the extremes of either emotions or logic might add some hope to the equation.
Logians employ sense rather than just emotions or logic alone. Think of Logia as logic-inaction, a practical kind of rationality that adheres to the more universal balance illustrated on these pages. Emotions are still there, but they are expressed for what they are – undefined thoughts – rather than authorities of reality and experience. In the same way, nature isn't more emotional or more logical but is that which makes sense, all things considered. Emotions are chaotic because they try to define the invisible. They are an atempt to add an internal map to our external environment by annotating people, places, things, ideas, words, etc., with our feelings. It's a fruitless efort because it's not possible to define the metaphysical relationships that make up our reality – they change too rapidly. We can only guess what those relationships might be by observing them over time. We can only have a sense for those relationships, not a definition of them. Realizing that emotions are based on illusions makes all the diference in the world when minimizing chaos in your life. Ofen, our emotions are based on how something looks or seems on the surface (chaos/space) rather than how something relates and interacts over time (order). Acting on our emotions is like a tiger eating a poisonous snake because it looks delicious. Sense is seeing how it is now and how it relates and interacts over time. In that way you still have undefined thoughts but your actions are defined by a sense of what you can and cannot immediately see. Just because you feel a certain way, it doesn't mean it has anything to do with what is actually going on. If you want to get more in balance with the reality around you, stop doing what you feel like doing and start doing what makes sense to do. As thoughts are more abstract, some of us use emotional expression as a way to try to find out what we ourselves are thinking. We're used to thinking in words to communicate with other people and interact with them. But we ofen try to communicate to ourselves using emotion. This might lead us to think that when we express a particular emotion it is evidence that we feel that way. Not having a clear way to communicate with ourselves makes it dificult to really know who we are and what is going on in our minds, so the power of emotion fills the gap. Talking to yourself more ofen could help. As words make it much easier to communicate with and interact with others, it also means that when something doesn't have structure (or hasn't really been defined) it is dificult for interaction to take place. We assume, for example, that love is more powerful than like. But 'love' has less definition than 'like' does. You can love someone and do all kinds of wonderful or terrible things (e.g., hugging, or abuse from loving parents). But when you like someone a much more clear patern of behaviour is defined. We ofen feel beter when we 'express' an emotion because we are atempting to define our thoughts, thinking that clear communication has taken place. But expressing emotion is really an atempt to provide our thoughts with shape and form – giving it life so that we can feel like we exist. The act of 'expressing yourself' really is an act of enhancing your existence and making yourself feel more alive. For something to be useful, it must be defined and given a structure (order) so that it can interact (chaos). By taking control of your emotions, you don't suppress them but shape them. By adding some emotional irrigation to your daily life, you can direct the flow of your thoughts where you want. Instead of just saying you 'love' someone, for example, define what that means. In what ways are you loving them? How? When? How ofen? How do they benefit (and how do you know)? How do they feel about what you're doing and how? How are you communicating those feelings? Don't just talk to yourself about them. Writing them down, drawing them, playing with them, etc., are other ways to help make them more clear. You can turn these emotions into sense by defining them, seting rules, and choosing what they are related to and how, what they atract, and what they repel. This limits the abstraction that is the power of chaos. Then you can begin to take control of your infinite potential. 36
You can also focus on simple structures and simple interactions rather than complex ones. This way, the more complex things will be more harmoniously atuned to them. Instead of 'loving someone' by working hard for 5 years so that you could aford a new house for you both to live in (complexity), perhaps taking a simple walk every day for 20 minutes would be beter. Instead of expressing anger by saying a bunch of things at once (complexity), maybe taking a break for 20 minutes and doing something simple (like going out for ice cream or siting quietly next to them) makes more sense. Here are some other ways to minimize the complexity in your life. Many of them are simple activities. take more time for simple interactions with people, places, and things; think carefully before responding (bonus points for the thought, “Maybe I am wrong”); write things down so you don't forget or change your memory of it; make plans for yourself and others, and save lots of room for changes; wait 20 minutes before any dramatic emotional expression; be more consistent, especially in relation to other people; minimize interactions with others who are overly chaotic; make a daily, weekly, and monthly schedule; get to really know things you don't like; minimize interactions and stimuli, focusing more on the more simple and important things or people in your life. “More” of something ofen does not mean more balance, but likely more chaos; make sure you're geting enough sleep (if you can, 8-9 hours of sleep, rest, quiet activities, and silence a day); and cut down on chaos consumption; particularly sugary drinks and foods, and alcohol (and get rid of the worst ofenders entirely). Most people are addicted to sugar without realizing it. When your life is made more simple, then your true self is more easy to see.
When There's Too Much Order in Your Life
Sometimes you need to open your life up to chaos to free your perspective from the monotony of routine experiences. Without chaos flowing above the ground of your being like the wind, the steadily rising atmosphere of your potential eventually runs out of breath and begins to wither away. Without the chaos of inner conflict, things would not be able to divide themselves in two so that they could form relationships with other things, increasing the overall health and fitness of your reality. If you have an over-abundance of order in your perspective it means that there's too much mass and density in your life, which can lead to conditions that can make life uncreative and uninteresting. Too much density blocks life from happening, as any rock could tell you. True, a rock has an abundance of order and thus plenty of time on its side but, like a mountain, it will pay for all the time it has (mass) by taking away from its motion. Too much order can decrease the speed of life so much that your immediate reality has dificulty keeping up with everything else around you. Order is vital, but an excess of it prevents interactions from taking place. You cannot drink water if the cup you're drinking out of has no structure. Structure in your life is what limits the chaos from geting out of control, and provides the definition for the nourishment that you need. Too much structure in the cup, however, and the movement of the water will be inhibited.
If one of the following applies to you, you may have too much order in your life. Perhaps you:
like to plan with lots of detail; have dificulty trying new things; have dificulty opening up to people, especially with those that are not close; are more introverted; are detail-oriented; are frugal; or experience low blood sugar (are hypoglycaemic)
Imagine that your life is a balance between motion and order, like a line that turns into a spiral. At the center of the spiral are the things most relative to you: your body, the place you live, your family and friends, your personality, etc. The longer the spiral goes out the more you find things that aren't in your immediate reality. And at the end of the spiral are things you can't even begin to imagine. Now, consider that events in your life happen more or less randomly. How you interpret and feel about something is entirely up to you. If an event lands on the spiral it is in harmony with your life and you feel happy. (And if it's perfectly aligned, you feel really happy.) But if something happens that is out of harmony with your interpretation (and therefore doesn't land on the line), perhaps you feel disinterested or sad. One event can be interpreted two diferent ways by two diferent people. It is not the thing itself that is good or bad, or harmonious, but the interpretation itself. The question is always, “How does this thing relate to how I see myself?”
You can feel “happy” no mater what condition you're in, how much money you have, how many friends you have, or whatever. This also means that we ofen don't know what actually makes us happy. An event or thing can appear to be bad or wrong on the surface but somehow we can be satisfied or comfortable with it, simply because it is harmonious with our immediate reality. “It is not external events themselves that cause us distress, but they way in which we think about them, our interpretation of their significance. It is our atitudes and reactions that give us trouble. We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them.” - Epictetus We tend to be atracted to things that are more relative to us – closer to us on the scale – because those things have a higher chance of a connection with who we are, as the spiral is more concentrated as we get to the core. If you focus on what isn't relative to you – far along on the scale – you could still find some harmony but it's not as likely. However, you can only atract what you are already relating to, and you can only repel what you are already interacting with. You interpret and re-interpret people, places, and things along this line all the time. For example, you could meet a stranger and, as you get to know who they are and relate more with them, you draw them closer to the center of your spiral. Before then they were further away from your center and you didn't feel as much of a connection. But as you related to them more the random distribution had a greater chance of meeting the line, simply because the line is more tightly packed at your core. So when there's too much order in your life it might be a good idea to simply relate with more things. This can be done by:
interacting more ofen with what you don't like; meeting more strangers; learning to forget and say “I don't know” or “Forget about it”; and making a habit of doing one weird thing a day (e.g., having dinner in the bathroom, trying to eat your furniture, talking to your fingers, having a nonsense conversation with someone in public) with bonus points for interacting with people, places, and things outside of your immediate reality.
To a Logian, what is most reasonable is not that which is most logical but that which is able to have the most relationships over time. Too much order isn't good for a balanced life, as it diminishes the possibility of relationships.
When Huappiness is ua Mystery
Being happy is not a mystery when you're thinking of happy things. Instead of asking, “How can I be happy?” perhaps ask, “What are the ways I am happy now, and how can I focus on them more?” When you're not feeling happy, it is probably because you're not interacting with happiness. (Try finding examples of happiness in your life that don't involve relating to something.) As independent as we pride ourselves to be, as humans, our happiness is really defined by what we relate to. Real happiness is hard to define. What we are usually thinking about when we think about it is the feeling of happiness. The feeling is itself as much of a representation as as the chemical that transmits the feeling, or the smile that may result. Happiness is one way for us to represent a balanced and harmonic relationship with something else. We can be just as happy with something that we think is 10 years away as something that is right around the corner. We make things relative to us here and now, regardless of how far away they may seem. 39
As we've discovered in the last section, the “secret” to happiness is to simply relate to more things. Or, at least, understand that happiness is harmony (not a default state) and it is okay to not feel happiness in your life, especially if you are choosing to not interact much with who and what is around you. As we relate to more things we draw those things closer to our perspective, increasing the chances that we'll experience a balanced harmony. Find yourself in the world around you and this harmony will come automatically. Conversely, you can minimize your chances for harmonic interactions by relating to things less, but of course then you would be choosing not to connect with your own perspective that much. Focus on what is most relative to you and the rest will fall into place. The entire universe is folded into your current perspective, and you interact with it through your every movement. Why do people ofen choose to live in a neighbourhood with people like themselves? Why do we want to be friends with people that we have a lot in common with? Why do we do the same things over and over? Is it because we don't want to evolve or expand our perspective, be inclusive, or shake up our reality? Or is it because we naturally tend to perceive best what is most relative to us, and make connections more easily with those things? If we seek happiness in our lives we should consider whether we want the feeling of happiness or prefer to be happy with what we're already comfortable with. Do we want mysterious new things that we hope will fall on a good spot on our spiral or do we want to interact with what is already relative to us, hoping that we can bring it more in line with who we are? To answer this, we can think about how much time we spend finding replacements for the things we think we aren't satisfied with – it's probably not much. Sometimes we may find a desire to maintain our existing relationships (even if chaotic or 'bad') over an unknown that we are not sure if we would be able to connect with. We ofen make the comfortable choice, not the more reasonable one. You are interacting with – and have a relationship with – everything in your reality. The closer something is to you in time and space the more interactions you have with it. You are also exchanging energy with it, a very important consideration. If you, for example, like to watch violent movies then you are exchanging energy with whatever it is you're perceiving and integrating it into your perspective. Happiness also does not depend on what is true. Truth has nothing to do with happiness because truth is a reality beyond perception and it is meaningless to pursue both at the same time. If you think you've discovered truth, it's only a sign that you've discovered an interesting illusion. If you think you've discovered something that makes you happy then that truth is good enough for now. The interesting illusions in our lives are what 'make' us happy. What is useful to us is much more important than uncovering the mysteries of life. And when we think about how easy it is interact with everyday illusions the mystery of where happiness might be found quickly disappears. The truth of the universe is not in this book or in some other material or way of life, but is illustrated best in your here and now, in whatever reality you happen to find yourself in. And, as always, you are free to interpret it in any way that you'd like. 2.06
How to Get Whuat You Wuant
Nobody cares what you want – except you. But even then, you don't really care that much, because those wants are always changing in small ways. Your wants and desires are like undefined thoughts – emotions – and are as nebulous as the sea. They morph as your perspective does. What you really care about is that which you can actually perceive – the drama surrounding your wants and desires. 40
Do you really want to buy a new house, or is what you really want all of the benefits it could bring? If it did not have those benefits, would you still want it? If you could get into a time machine and see yourself 10 years from now you probably wouldn't care about what kind of car or job your future self wanted, especially if those things were diferent from what your younger self wanted. We only desire something when we can perceive what surrounds it, while the thing itself – an illusion – is just an interface to those other things that we really want but can't define as easily. That your wants and desires are ultimately meaningless is wonderful. It means that your conscious thoughts can impose meaning onto reality rather than having meaning imposed onto it. It also means you can bring experiences closer to your reality by beginning to perceive and experience what surrounds it rather than trying to perceive the thing itself. You can make things more likely to happen, even if you don't know exactly what will happen. You understand this intuitively – you're not likely to find a job if you don't look for one, for example – but how can you supercharge this to make things happen for you? Want a new romance? Define it. What does it do to your Saturday morning schedule? Start to perceive it now by experiencing what it means now. Want a new laptop? Bring it closer to your experience by experiencing the drama that owning it might involve, perhaps by looking for a replacement for the adapter you 'lost'. (Your perspective will begin to fill in the blanks with the missing information that looks more and more like your new laptop.) There is no need to wait for what is waiting for you. Make it happen by nudging your perspective in that direction. The same way you can get what you don't want is the same way you can get what you do want: through interactions and relationships. By structuring drama around your desires and interacting with the drama, a desired reality can unfold. What memories and possibilities are you interacting with? What are you listening to people tell you? What are you being exposed to every day? All of these are interactions and afect how you interpret reality. In cases where something in your life is too chaotic (or too constrained) you can consciously structure its over-contraction (or over-expansion) rather than have it happen in ways that you might not want to experience. You balance your perspective quite ofen without realizing it. You turn down boiling water before it gets out of control, for example, or undo a buton on your pants afer eating a big meal before the buton breaks. There's no reason that you can't direct your entire perspective in the same way. 2.07
Becoming Comfortuable with Your Self
Forget about knowing yourself. It's impossible. You can only try to perceive what's around you. Instead, understand how you relate to the people, places, and things that make up your reality. Although you cannot know yourself directly, when you understand how you interact and relate with your perspective you can have a prety good idea. You needn't love or even like everything that you perceive, or pretend to. It isn't natural to force love or good feelings on everything in your perspective. You needn't love yourself completely, either. It isn't natural, or healthy, to do so. You cannot love everyone no mater how good it sounds. That would be an imbalanced SPPI (or, perspective) and not a healthy relationship with your reality. Counter-intuitively, if love is how you interpret some feelings then you also need a dose of hate for some other things. You can't have one without the other. This is not to suggest that you begin to hate things, of course, but to realize that hate is as natural as love is because what you are loving and hating is your own perspective. One is defined by the other. As you begin to accept all of your perspective (and not just 'good' 41
things) then you can begin to feel more comfortable with your complete self. It's not easy to think about, but where do those things you feel so badly about really come from? Rather than focusing on feeling chaotic emotions that cannot actually be defined, focus on how you are interacting with things. How do you really feel about something that you continue to interact with and relate to? If you didn't interact and relate to it, it wouldn't be possible to feel the way you do because you wouldn't know about it. What is hate but love in disguise? Logians have a sense for relationships and interactions. The emotions and feelings of humans are chaotic and infinite and may very lead to the decline of civilization. A human professes to love everyone equally while thinking mostly of their own welfare and benefit. A Logian can do nice things for someone with the sole purpose of interaction. A human will start a conflict with someone because they may be easily ofended. A Logian sees the true nature of conflict, embraces it, and is thus able to manage it and extinguish it at will. A human wishes for all human sufering to disappear, not realizing that most such sufering can be traced back to someone's emotions (fear, greed, hate, anger, jealously, nihilism, envy, depression, pride, contempt, shame, etc.) and that all of those things in their imagination originate from their own perspective. Having a sense for relationships, a Logian does not act from emotions or logic alone.
The subconscious mind doesn't care about love or hate, or how the conscious mind interprets anything else. It does not perceive those interpretations – the conscious mind does. Love and hate are words that represent how we atempt to define certain aspects of our reality, emotions, and thoughts. They are dificult to define precisely because they represent other things that are not those interpretations. Humans tend to focus on the details – the slap, the pain, the loss – but not their relationship with the other things behind what they can see. An old story about a farmer illustrates this: One day one of the farmer's horses ran away. The farmer's neighbors heard the news and came to visit. "Such bad luck," they said. "May be," the farmer replied. The next morning the horse returned and brought with it three other wild horses. "How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed. "May be," replied the farmer. The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses and was thrown to the ground, breaking his leg. The neighbors again came to the farmer to ofer their sympathy. "May be," replied the farmer. The day afer, military oficials came to their village to draf young men into the army for their campaign. Seeing that the son's leg was broken they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. "May be," replied the farmer. The average human would be quite upset that their horse ran away. (A move that may deharmonize that aspect of their reality, making it unlikely to perceive the horse returning with more horses.) A Logian would sense the relationships, just as the farmer did. It is dificult to figure out – consciously – what we really desire or like and what we really resist or dislike. We focus on the immediate physical interactions of something but not its relationship over time. We ignore the bad behaviour of a handsome guy or beautiful girl because of the way they look. We continue to play that song that is actually changing your life in ways you would not want. We run into someone we think we don't like. We continue to do things that feel good in the moment but are actually quite harmful. What is most relative to you is what is easiest to perceive and interact with. What is most relative is not what you think you like or desire the most or are puting the most energy into, but what is easiest to perceive and interact with in any way. If it's easier for someone to smoke a cigarete than to quit smoking cigaretes, then cigaretes are probably more harmonious with their perspective. If your friend says they detest violence but enjoy a number of violent movies, then violence is more relative to them than they probably realize. The efect of this relativity is that they will be more likely to interpret relationships in the 42
neighborhood of conflict. (Playing violent video games doesn't really have a direct efect but it, like anything else, actually changes how you relate to and perceive things. Perhaps their car continues to break down, for example, or their business partner decides to rip them of.) However, focusing on the good side of things will eventually have the opposite efect, as (for sake of simplicity) you will give yourself a lesson that good and bad are the same thing. So by focusing only on one side of the equation you would experience the other side, which balances the experience as it illustrates its more complete nature. Have you ever looked at something for so long that it morphed into something else? When you resist the things in your perspective it is the same as thinking, “That isn't me. That is other!” The illusion of your perspective becomes even less evident the more you resist it. We don't realize that when we experience something we are actually experiencing the illustration of ourselves. Although you exist by perceiving parts of yourself as something else, you will experience the reality of separation if you divide yourself even more by perceiving more complex dramas. These experiences should not be seem as 'bad' but as complexity illustrating itself. 2.08
The Art of Resistuance
The human body lives by balancing opposing forces. It breathes by geting rid of air, not just taking it in. We cannot be 100% healthy physically, mentally, or emotionally, nor should we be. And we cannot like something without disliking parts of it at the same time. There is no absolute cold, love, height, pressure, or beauty, because those things only exist in relation to what they are not. You could say that we are beings resisting a state of not being anything so we create meaningful illusions for our own existence. Resistance is at our core, and it is as natural as sleeping. The area between atraction and repulsion is what makes us feel alive. You can't have a stable reality trying to walk on just one leg. You cannot perceive anything without both positive and negative forces at work, and you cannot live a balanced life focused on just one side of the equation. Life, perspective, happiness, consciousness, energy, and everything wonderful around you is the harmonic resistance between chaos and order. When you do not want something in your life you can try to make it and the things it relates to (and interacts with) irrelevant. You can do this by simply focusing on something else. It might be a bit tricky at first because sometimes the thing we think we don't want is atached to the thing we do want. But if the things you don't want in your life were not interacting with your reality somehow, they wouldn't be there. We sometimes wonder why things might get worse when we think we're doing the 'right' thing, forgeting that the seemingly opposing sides of something are intertwined with each other. An imbalance leads to conditions that just seem bad. For examples, too much atention could harm a relationship. Too much light could lead to blindness. People would respect the law more if the number of laws was decreased. An engineer can make a structure stronger by placing empty spaces within it. Like water, to properly balance your perspective you allow room for more rigidity or more fluidity, depending on what is needed. To resist something entirely, however, is to deny your own perspective. It is in your perspective because somehow it is a part of what you are right now, whether or not you accept it. And as there would be no need to resist what you do not perceive, if you feel like resisting something in your reality the question would be, “Why am I interpreting myself in this way?”
Right uand Wrong, uand Kuarmua
As an example of karma, let's say that you were leading a nice, stress-free life without anything really bad happening. One day you got angry and hit someone. The next day your pet gerbil died. You may link the death of your beloved pet to your anger the day before and think the two are related by karma, one causing the other. Remember that your reality is afected by the interactions you make. As we interact with things, those things also interact with us and our interpretation of reality. Perhaps when you interacted with the person by hiting them, the geometry of your perspective changed and in your new perspective the gerbil was not compatible. (As your perspective takes on a new flavour afer every interaction. It would be like moving to a slightly diferent climate and expecting all your plants to stay alive.) The gerbil would not just disappear, of course, but must take a logical departure from your reality. Death is one of the ways the gerbil could make its exit. It could also depart from your perspective by running away (and coming back if your narrative meets it again), someone else taking care of it, etc. You interpret the geometry of perspective as a logical narrative (bringing order to your interactions), so it appears to you that things flow in a linear fashion. You see cause and efect where there is none. Although there are no consequences to any of your actions in the way of cause and efect, this doesn't mean that you can act irresponsibly. You could say that at every moment the entire universe is interpreted anew from the formula of your perspective. At each moment you make things more or less relative to you depending on how you interact with them, whereby your entire reality (going in all directions, past and future) becomes more or less like the thing you have interacted with, and in the way you have interacted with it. This may be more obvious in other ways, for example, when something really nice happens to you and your entire perspective seems to radiate with joy. It is not a result of what happened but simply your new interpretation of reality that is influenced by what you interact with, and in the way you have interacted with it. As you interact with your reality, so does your reality become. 2.10
The SPPIs Within Us
Although we intuitively understand how SPPI (the language of perspective) works we do not really consciously understand the process. Our misunderstanding, or perhaps ignorance, of natural systems creates variations that are still natural, but emphasize the positive force more than a balance of forces. We end up with systems that have no or litle opposing force, something designed to pursue infinity instead of a process where infinity is balanced by limitation. In other words, we ofen want certain things to go on forever without end, thinking that this is the model that makes the most sense. Endless advancement, laws, creativity, happiness, profits, income, friends, productivity, and more. (Manufacturers of cars, bateries, light bulbs, mobile phones, and other 'planned obsolescence' products that chase limitless profits notwithstanding.) Such social systems are riddled with logical fallacies such as confirmation bias and argument from authority, as they are not designed to depend on opposing forces. These are not inherently negative or harmful systems but systems designed to facilitate the pursuit of meaning in our lives. They work as they're supposed to. (And we will see how such systems are perfectly natural). But because they do not integrate opposing forces to beter balance them they do not promote and facilitate as much harmony as they could. We adopt an endless variety of these circular SPPIs in order to interpret relationships in their light in the hopes of creating a sense of a greater reality. Each of the following systems is a metaphysical tool interpreted into oneâ€™s physical existence for the purpose of giving focus, meaning, and to transcend and transform our daily lives. 44
Production and growth
News, programs, articles, etc.
Mobile networking apps
Social rewards and validation
Media and Social Inputs
Form(s) of Endlessness Conversion, Enlightenment, Sufering, Omnipotence
Circular SPPIs tend to be overly-emotional, with supporters defending the recursive logic of the structure's narrative at all costs. Again, these are not inherently bad structures; they are the focus of much of our reality and deeply integrated with our daily lives. We can, however, say that they don't lead to balanced relationships by themselves. 2.11
You Are Not Meuant to Be Rich or Fuamous. You Alreuady Are.
Think for a moment about the people in your perspective. There are all types: over-educated, under-educated, rich, poor, famous, unknown, remarkable, unremarkable, etc. They're outside of your perspective for a reason â€“ that's where their energies are best expressed. If you aren't rich or famous, you're not meant to be in your current perspective. Those values are more harmonious outside of your immediate physical identity, for now at least. You're not a mirror, for example, because it isn't relative to your immediate perspective. But you probably have one close to you somewhere, so it's not too far away. All of those types of people are exactly where they need to be right now. If you want or desire something that isn't in your immediate perspective but could be, take steps to make it relative. Anything that you can imagine can be brought closer to your immediate experience, with the proper dose of motion and geometry, of course, as we will exemplify in the next section.
The Key to Weualth
QMe is about the balance between the forces of chaos and order working together to create the reality of your perspective. When considering how these two fundamental forces can be used to perceive wealth in your everyday experience, we can think of chaos and order as 'space' and 'time', respectively. You can think of space as a force that wants to expand and grow forever. Space is always in motion and therefore is always interacting. Time is a force that contracts and tries to minimize the infinite growth of space. Time is more about mass and relationships. When these two forces come together, we get perspective. We can leverage how these two forces interact and relate in order to create wealth in our perspective. The following are examples of the two elements in relation to maters of business, finance, and building wealth in the SPPI of capitalism. Order (Time/Geometry/Reluationships)
things that relate more
things that interact more
It is important to note that chaos is simply order set in motion. (For example, 'resources' are tools-in-motion. And when capital is set in motion we can profit from it.) Because of this, we can leverage the force of order/time to build wealth. Wealth, then, is not a thing that happens to you but a 'result' of seting a relationship in motion. Becoming wealthy is a side-efect of having grown wealth out of one or more processes. We can use one side to multiply or change the efect on the other side. Let's take a look at how this can work in business with the last examples, scale and magnitude:
Scale – order – e.g., number of units Magnitude – chaos – e.g., amount of profit
If, for example, we wanted to turn a profit with a product or service we could create one of three types of systems: Type
Lots of scale at low magnitude
500,000 units at 10 cents profit each
Lots of magnitude at low scale
5 units at $200,000 profit each
Lots of scale at lots of magnitude
500,000 units at $1,000 profit each
The following are some examples of recommended systems of each type:
Systems thuat Leveruage Time elements
Systems thuat Leveruage Spuace elements
(usually by minimization of time/mass/relationships)
(usually by maximization of space/motion/resources)
Distribution systems (moving products and services to the masses)
Human resource systems (where you depend on social elements, such as in manufacturing, restaurants, etc.)
Real estate systems (non-leasing)
A, B, C Content systems (media, publishing, etc.) A, B, C Logical systems of information A, B, C Royalty systems 1) leases (Real estate, products, services, financial instruments such as money-for-interest) 2) payments from licensing and rights-holding 3) franchising
A, B, C Information product and service systems (i.e., computer and sofware) [note: You can also take a system or pre-existing business that depends on lots of people and change it to one that doesn't]
If you create a content system, for example, you're allowing people to have a relationship with one thing that bundles interactions together (making it easier for people to find information in one place, rather than going to multiple places). In this way your system seeks to leverage relationships for others (by making it simpler for your customers) and maximizes resources for yourself (by charging a fee for the convenience). It is generally easier to extract wealth from the lef column (order) than from the right column (chaos) because the foundation is not in motion. It would be easier, for example, to build wealth by leasing out condos than by selling them because the asset itself relates more and interacts less. However, a balance of chaos and order is needed to set the wealth process in motion. This means taking something in the lef column (order) and building processes that maximize its efect (chaos). As it is generally easier (and recommended) to begin the wealth process by leveraging the force of order/time, the first step is to begin with the obvious question, â€œWho owns my time?â€? If you do not own your time (or own very litle of it), it will be more dificult, though not impossible, to get the momentum required for wealth to unfold in your lifetime. Your first step is to own as much of your time-capital as you can so that you can start to multiply it. If you don't own it, you cuan't multiply it. To simplify how you think of your time (in relation to building wealth) you can think about time in two ways: Building Wealth
How much time do you spend or have to research opportunities and ideas, educate yourself in relevant ways, and execute your plan for wealth creation?
How much of your time is used for everything else: work, life maintenance, recreation, relaxation, family, socialization, etc.?
This is not to say that spending time with family, relaxing, and other activities are not important. They are of course vitally important and, for many of us, have more value than building wealth. But if you needed to study for a big test, for example, you'd still need to think about where your time is going, and how to put as much time towards studying as possible to
reach your goals. Where is your time-capital going? Are you spending most of your time-capital to make someone else rich or powerful, or are you spending it educating yourself, working on your own plans, and increasing your wealth potential? To get an idea of your potential for generating wealth, find out how much time-capital you have. Multiply the number of hours in the right column by 2 and divide the result by 24. If the result is 50% or more, it will likely be more dificult for you to build wealth processes (as your time-capital will not be multiplied by much). The more of your own time you own the more likely you are to be able to multiply it (as the more chances you will have to do so). Put more timecapital in the lef column to increase your wealth potential. When people talk about financial freedom and wealth, they are really talking about owning their own time. It means being able to take a holiday for as long as they'd like, retiring early, not having to spend time doing something that they don't want to do, being able to build something in their lifetime that benefits others, being able to aford something without having to save up months or years for it, being able to pay someone else a wage or salary, etc. How Do You Use Money? The mindset of someone who is building and using processes to create wealth is diferent than someone who isn't. To a wealthy person (or one who is on the way to becoming wealthy), wealth is used mostly as a tool, not as a resource. Money as a tool to multiply time (e.g., buying the rights to a book that is becoming popular, which creates more time-capital because you may never have to work full-time again) Money as a resource to destroy time (e.g., buying a car that you don't really need, which destroys your time-capital because you're paying for it with 1,000 hours of your past or future time. Your time then becomes frozen in the thing you bought.) How Do You Use Your Personual Spuace uand Time? The diference between the two mindsets can also be illustrated as the diference between someone who mostly consumes and someone who mostly produces:
Consumers: use space to destroy their time-capital. This is using personal space-resources (a physical body and brain, i.e., working for someone else) to destroy their time-capital by exchanging their time to buy things that rapidly decrease in value. Producers: use time-capital to multiply space-resources (e.g., by spending 100 hours building a system that will produce a lifetime of benefits).
Producers create wealth by amplifying time and giving it room to grow, whereas consumers destroy wealth by locking up time in products like expensive cars, overpriced homes, and unnecessary purchases. Are you using your time-capital to increase the wealth and resources of others in exchange for things that decrease your own wealth over time? When you are a producer you are transferring production from yourself to something or someone else, removing the 24-hour limit that is atached to your time-capital. You can only work so many hours in a day but if you invent a new toy and license it to a toy company, for example, then your ability to produce is shifed to something that does not sufer the same time limitations. Now, instead of being able to produce value no more than 24 hours a day (minus sleep, etc.) your ability to produce has no limitations.
Producers and the wealthy use resources to create more time (i.e., passive income, 'make money while you sleep'): unlimited wealth potential 48
Consumers and those who aren't wealthy generally use time to buy resources (i.e., using their wage or salary): limited-to-very-limited wealth potential
If you don't make the bulk of your income while you sleep, you're probably in the 'consumer' category. They key to wealth then, is to produce much more than you consume, perhaps making use of the strategies above. Wealth is simply bringing order to the infinite nature of the SPPI of capitalism (section 2.10). 2.13
Whuat is Consciousness?
The word consciousness derives from the Latin conscius, “to know with”. It is a close relative of the word science, which is also derived from the same root scire, “to know”. Although we cannot know anything without consciousness, in the breadth of all our sciences we have no definition for what consciousness is. Consciousness and science are connected at the root, but you'd never know it by how far they apart they've grown. We cannot know if we've really progressed without knowing how far we've come. Is there anything that you're completely aware of? Reality is unlike our experience – we can only perceive our interpretations. We cannot see, hear, touch, taste, feel, or even think beyond our perspective. For us, our perspective is all that is, but is not yet enough to perceive reality. The day that we give up the notion of truth is the day that we learn to work within the illusion to find out, instead, what truly works for us. We think of a consciousness that can be aware of something – but even illusions laugh at such thoughts. The term conveniently hides the reality that we cannot be aware of something directly. Consciousness is all about relationships. If you look at your hand you are not seeing your hand for what it is. Although the illusion seems like reality it is the only way to perceive we've ever known, and so it becomes our ultimate reality by default. What the hand is really like is irrelevant, as it likely does not exist without an interpretation of it. It doesn't mater how something sees itself, either, as that is also an interpretation. If you see yourself as tall and bear-like and someone else does not, it doesn't mean that they aren't seeing you for who you are. Perspective cannot be shared. Even as you look in the mirror you are interpreting the electrical signals coming from your retina as they were in the past; we cannot even share perspective with ourselves. And the moment we share our perspective with another it becomes another perspective. If you could perceive the signals directly you'd still be perceiving an interpretation. True reality cannot be perceived directly. Truth has no perspective. Illusions are more important than reality because they allow relationships to exist, whereas absolute reality does not. What is important is that which we can use. The illusions 'create' consciousness simply by relating to each other, making up the geometry of perspective we call reality. Consciousness, by itself, does not exist. We can only know of other – it is impossible to know of your self in a 1:1 relationship. Such would be beyond perspective because there would be nothing else with which to compare. So we make up 'other' in our body, our thoughts, our beliefs, our actions, other people and things, and events and activity all over the Earth, round infinity and back again. We can represent infinity and interpret something to be infinite, but infinity itself does not exist any more than an illusion. The universe is no more infinite than finite, as there really is no “other” other than something that cannot be wholly interpreted and so seems to go on forever in our natural interpretations. Watching a film, the illusion of motion is very convincing. We are so engaged in the drama we forget that we are watching individual frames rather than something lively. How much more dificult would it be to think about illusions in reality? The magic happens in the 49
relationships between the frames of our reality to give us perspective. Logians find consciousness not in the frames of existence but between those convincing illusions. What do you consider your 'self'? If it is your body, then what do you do with a part of your self when you clip your nails or cut your hair? If it is only the living part of your body that you consider your self, where does your self go when you lose weight? If it is your mind, do you gain more self as you get older and wiser, or perhaps lose part of your self if you have forgoten something? Where is your self when you are dreaming – in the dream? If consciousness is "awareness of my own being", what does it mean to be aware of another being? Are you independently aware of your being, or are you just using one part of your 'self' to sense another part? If you are more than your brain, could you be aware of what remains if your brain was shut of completely? There is no one point that you can say, “This is my self,” because there is nothing to point at. You are wanting to point between the frames but end up focusing on the frames themselves for the answers because you can see them. The notion of self must, paradoxically, include other things. There is no self without what you don't consider your self to be. In order to be you must relate, as you cannot be by yourself. What you perceive is much more of your self than your body alone is. In order to think or feel, you must relate to what you are thinking and feeling. By thinking, you open a dialogue with something you do not yet sense your self to be. By feeling, your emotions flow to where they weren't before. In order for consciousness to be, it must be conscious of it being something else. Your brain reflects this a bit in its mirror neurons, which fire the same way if you do something as they would if you see someone else doing the same thing.5 That you may be conscious, you must forget that you are something else already, but still interact with it as if you're not. This brings us back to the root of consciousness, the Latin term for, “to know with”. We are conscious when we know with something else, forming a relationship. But, as relationships vary, consciousness is relative. We are conscious by relating to one thing more and another thing less. As an example, the more aware we are of dreams the less aware we are of waking reality. This balance of potentials to harmonize our awareness with whatever we are relating to and interacting with is at the root of our perspective. What is 'me' but everything else? 2.14 The Present is ua Gif Thuat You Never Got (but Hints uat ua Reluationship Thuat You Did) Our lives revolve around the present moment. It seems like we're on the edge of something amazingly new and continuous, yet perfectly balanced between the known (our past) and the unknown (our future). It seems to be all we can be easily perceive, like an active and perfectly fluid memory. But, unfortunately, the present doesn't exist. We know that when we look at the stars we are looking back in time billions of years, as it takes a really long time for their light to reach us. Light from our own Sun does not have too far to travel but is still around 8 minutes old. Although sound and light take time to travel you can still function as though they were instantaneous occurrences, as your brain doesn't seem to care for how old or new something is. Looking at your hand or listening to your own voice you are not seeing or hearing it as it is in the present, but as it was in the past. The diference is in nanoseconds, but it is still significant enough that it isn't truly now. 5
These illusions work well enough that you can manage your life without struggling with fundamental properties of physics as you walk down the street or pay your bills. But it also shows you that you are not able to experience reality directly, only the workable illusion of reality. Light travels from our Sun at 671,000,000 miles per hour. Sound travels to your ears at 768 miles per hour. You can walk home at about 3 miles per hour. But a relationship is instantaneous. The Sun has already formed a new relationship with everything around it before its light has had a chance to do anything. Your brain already has a relationship with a decision several seconds before you are aware.6 The Sun knows where the Earth is going to be long before its light reaches us. The Sun doesn't consider stars in other galaxies, as those relationships are already folded into whatever is nearby. What is far is folded into what is near. Everything doesn't need to be known, only the harmony of what is close needs to be sensed to extrapolate the totality of everything else. If Jupiter was somehow to disappear, the 'shock' of the unfolding relationships would push the Sun a litle, then pull it back as it organized the unfolded relationships into new folds (which is a mystery that has been puzzling cosmologists for some time). As people and things appear and disappear from our lives we may also be shocked in such a way as we re-organize the new relationships. Your past and future are also folded like this. Distant past and future are simply current perceptions that aren't so relative to you. The resistance between the two we call the present, but even this cannot be touched. The present illustrates the universal illusion. Is it time that allows you to perceive an apple as round, juicy, and red? These things are just our interpretation of the relationships behind the apple that allow you to see it that way. You are perceiving what is related and you fold up the rest into the wide arms of potential. You are perceiving the same apple as a seedling, an apple tree, an unripe apple, a ripe apple, a half-eaten apple, and a roten apple â€“ but all folded into the round, juicy, and red apple because that is the apple that is most relative to you. It is not the speed of time that causes the 'delay' of perspective, but our own swinging on the geometry of relationships, like monkey bars, as we sense the next closest bar to swing on. What we call the immediate past and future are the bars around us, but the present is the time spent between bars, floating in an experience that has no representation. We are not conscious of the present because awareness of the present only comes about through a relationship with something else, in what we call past and future. We hang between memory and possibility. The future expands our awareness, while the past contracts it. The harmonic equilibrium in the middle, the resistance, is our present. We seem to be moving forward in time as our bodies are powered by chaos and limited by order. The past burns the future like oxygen burns hydrogen in the fuel cell of our bodies, beckoning us electromagnetically as the past turns to rust. 2.15
You Are Not Reually Humuan
Just as consciousness exists in relationships rather than individual somethings, humanness is a state of being rather than a state of physicality. We are human because of our relationships. Your physical body is a massive collection of both physical and non-physical consciousness. 7 Approximately 100 trillion bacterial cells, each with its own consciousness and thoughts (via relationships), inhabit your body. You have 10 times more more of these bacterial cells in your body than you do human cells. What we refer to as human DNA actually has anywhere from 6 7
Reference: htp://phys.org/news12713951619.html Just as our brain operates in both physically and non-physically-oriented (metaphysical) geometries.
100 to 1,000 times more microbial genes than what we think of as human genes. You are, in actuality, not human. You stopped being physically human the moment you were born and microbial life began to take over. A complex microbial ecosystem staked claims in your digestive and respiratory tracts, your teeth, and your skin. They established increasingly complex communities, like a forest that gradually takes over a clearing. By the time you were a few years old, these communities matured. You will carry them with you, more or less, for your entire life. Less than 1% of your genetic make-up is human DNA. It’s easy to ignore the astonishing fact that you are not nearly as human as you think. “Human beings are not really individuals; they’re communities of organisms,” says McFall-Ngai. “It’s not just that our bodies serve as a habitat for other organisms; it’s also that we function with them as a collective. As the profound interrelationship between humans and microbes becomes more apparent, the distinction between host and hosted has become both less clear and less important — together we operate as a constantly evolving man-microbe kibbutz. Which raises a startling implication: If being Homo sapiens through and through implied a certain authority over our corporeal selves, we are now forced to relinquish some of that control to our innerdwelling microbes. Ironically, the human ingenuity that drives us to understand more about ourselves is revealing that we’re much less “human” than we once thought.” [from The Body Politic8] To you, an aggregated consciousness, riding a bicycle is a simple activity. It does, however, require the rapid execution of successive calculations of physics, trigonometry, and calculus. Calculations that would be quite impossible for anyone to do (rapidly, if at all) with their brain are easily and quickly performed by the other types of consciousnesses within their body. You quite ofen and easily perform calculus at speeds that would make Isaac Newton sweat through his wig. We take these abilities (or relationship-consciousnesses) for granted and say that it just comes naturally to us, without ever actually knowing how we do it. Other types of animals have also been shown to perform calculus,9 but perhaps researchers never thought to apply the same question to humans. We can perform calculations of physics without thinking about them because parts of us do make those calculations. We are then intuitively aware of the result because we need only sense the representation that has the answer folded in it. One interpretation is no more valid than any other. A physicist's understanding of physics, for example, is useless to a baby walking for the first time, though baby has a diferent but still-useful interpretation of physics and physical relationships. Our own understanding of the inner workings of our bodies would be useless to whatever is working inside our body. How reasonable would it be to assume that a cell has no thoughts, feelings, or intelligence, because we don't know how to communicate with them? We are human because of the particular way we interact with our physical environment and from the social relationships with have with each other. Our atoms, cells, organs, etc., allow us to express the humanity that is already there, beyond what we consider human. Being a Logian doesn't mean you're from another planet, of course, or spend your nights chating with microbial organisms. It simply means that you put perspective at the forefront of your reality to remove its limitations.

Your Perfect Reuality
We can either have truth or we can have perception. We can't have both. If there's 'truth' there's no perception of it. If there's perception, 'truth' cannot be perceived. We can perceive only an illusion that is more than a good-enough approximation for our reality. In truth, the illusion is the reality. Reality is a resistance between two or more illusions. Your perspective is the most perfect thing you'll ever experience because of the perfect way that the process works, even when it really doesn't seem to be working at all. There is no reality more wonderful or more amazing than the one that you're experiencing right now. Forget about what something looks like or feels like. Forget that your bed might be a litle too uncomfortable or the neighbors might be too loud on weekends. Forget for a moment about how money seems to have a life of its own and might be thinking of leaving you, not coming home for weeks at a time. Those are illusions. When you think deeply about your self and your life, think as the subconscious might think; the engaging and sometimes amazing illusions and the realities they enable, not all the chaos that comes and goes like bubbles in boiling water. Focusing on the physical aspect of things is like geting a present and obsessing over the wrapping, completely ignoring what's inside. Life's wrappings are not the gifs. But yet, this is what we do. We focus on the representations and assume that our reality is defined by how it looks. It's isn't. What is a perfect reality? It is not the perfect job or the perfect life according to your hopes and dreams. It doesn't mean geting what you want. The subconscious mind doesn't care about how many times you've fallen on your ass or how many obstacles are in front of you. It doesn't care about how many cars you think you own or how much you think you recycle. Those experiences exist in your complex interpretation of reality, not in the simplicity of reality itself. Fortunately (or unfortunately), how you interpret reality is far more important than what kind of life you have. A single, carefully-considered interaction can do more for your life than a thousand achievements or well-meaning friends ever could. A perfect reality is a balance of all relationships. And you only need to worry about the folds of your immediate reality, not what is happening on the other side of the world. Reality works in ways you cannot imagine. You may not see it as being 'wonderful' if someone dies from lung cancer because they have been smoking cigaretes for 20 years, even though it is perfectly reasonable as far as nature goes. The subconscious mind sees relationships, not the illusions that we focus on. It knows only that the person had been interacting with something (that we interpret as cigaretes, which have acids that severely contract the cells) and another relationship to balance it out formed over time (that we call cancer, a harmful overgrowth). As far as perspective is concerned, the relationship worked out prety well, just as it did for another person with another type of cancer whose smoking helped to reverse. Your reality is a perfect representation according to the value of every person, place, thought, thing, process, emotion, and experience in your perspective. These experiences are all relationships doing their thing, and you doing your thing by interpreting them as you wish. The poiesis that 'creates' your reality is perfect. How you decide to experience it is entirely up to you. There is an endless variety of interpretations. Pick one. If it doesn't work, pick something else. How beautiful is it that you're not stuck with one interpretation? You could pick and re-pick thousands of times if you wanted to. And that's exactly what we do moment afer moment, day afer day, to give us the motion of our experience. All we need to do is realize what is actually happening. In an absolutely perfect existence there would be no drama. In fact there wouldn't be 53
anything else, either. It is the drama that focuses reality. The resistance between chaos and order can be interpreted as anything you want: good and bad, high and low, angelic or evil, happy or sad, and everything in between and back again. If you don't like the really bad, stop focusing on the really good. It is understandable that you could get lost in the drama of all these relationships and think that it must come from somewhere else; surely not your own mind. But it is entirely in the perspective you call your reality and you therefore have a choice in how to interpret it. You are perfectly free to interpret the relationships that are already there however you want. How awesome is that! You are the most beautiful and wondrous thing that could ever be imagined. But 'you' is not just the you that you see in the mirror. You is perspective. You are everything born of nothing-in-particular in all of its hell, peanuts, and glory. This is the stuf of existence. And we delightfully ignore the power of the moment to create all of reality as we go about our every day. It's quite dificult to see yourself without a mirror. Now imagine this on a cosmic scale. You are that which leaves home for an eternity in order to forget who you are so that you can remember yourself once again in every possible kind of relationship and through every possible kind of interaction. You are the happy ant that plays with dust. You are the angles in a room on the 5th floor. You are the rookie trader on the exchange floor. You are the light running through the galaxy's veins and the serious professor. You are that guy. And his grandma. You are that which takes an endless variety of perceptions and perspectives to try and reproduce. You can't really remember yourself completely, but you sure do try hard! You formulate all of the songs, birds, laughter, love, clouds, hats, and swords in the world and across the fictional heavens of your mind to try – time and time again – to capture your essence. You are the life. The wonder of the wonderful. That which the endless variety of your perspective tries to capture but cannot begin to. That is the endlessness of how awesome you are. You try through all manner of drama of every possible measure to form a universe of things that – for beter or for worse – cannot capture even a small fragment of the impossible-to-perceive. But you don't even think about giving up trying to look at yourself in the mirror once and for all. Who are you? You are whatever is possible to be, in whatever way you want. You are that whose first priority is to forget yourself. You are always your best re-interpretation, no mater how itchy your underwear gets. You are one and the other, and neither, all at the same time. You are so confident in your existence it seems like you undo yourself just to be able to make a grand entrance at every moment. But this is a paradox. You don't want to be nothing again. Not existing is so boring and lonely. You only want to be able to perceive yourself, but by doing so you get lost in the everything. This is how you like it. Being many-things-at-once reminds you of being nothingin-particular, and that's not the direction you want to go. You want the illusion of somethingin-particular; far more exciting! You don't want to know exactly how you breathe – you just want to breathe! You don't need to know the intimate details of your cells and hormones and other internal processes when your body needs adenosine triphosphate. Why should you care? You only need to feel the hunger. You don't need to have intimate knowledge of your system needing more DHA than it did 5 years ago. You only know you now love to eat salmon and you want some right now. When you eat, you don't need to know how your body's positive enzymes strip the negative electrons of what you digest, you just think about what you'll be doing afer you finish eating. You represent complex processes as simply and eficiently as possible and then proceed to forget all about those complex things. You have complex representations of vast inner 54
galaxies that interact with other worlds, but you see only a chair and a table. Representing these realities more simply allows you to interact with them in ways that would never have otherwise been possible. Who wants to lay on a micro-galaxy? In another space and time zone it might be exciting, but for now you just want to get in the bed. And so here you are again. Impossible to define, impossible to perceive, impossible to merely think of... but how wonderfully amazing it is that you try again and try again. When you try to perceive something so amazing and indescribable that it is beyond perception, even a litle piece of it is still world-changing and wonderful. A couple of tiny words on a piece of paper can literally rock your world. Your 'try' is enough to create an endless universe of interpretations, exploding and imploding at every moment and filling in again with an entirely new something that you can perceive as whatever you want. Your clothes do not illustrate the complete essence of who you are. Your friends don't reflect it completely. The dishes on the table do not capture the essence. The dirt blissfully hiding in the comfort of your fingernails cannot even daydream of such things. You are so wonderfully hidden yet so spectacularly visible because it is the process of perspective that formulates your existence and extends to everything that could possibly be. You're not just trying to look in the mirror as you read this book. You're trying to jump through your own eyes! Are we alone in this efort? Are you alone? If everything in your perspective is you, what and who else is there? It would seem from this that you are, indeed, a party of one. Is it true? What else is there when you are everything? Ahh. But you are not actually 'everything' because then you wouldn't exist. You are an interpretation of everything. You are not alone because then you'd be nothing-in-particular, all by yourself with nothing else to relate to, and not existing at all. Being 'alone' is irrelevant. You could not be more surrounded by everything. There is no need to worry about being alone when you can form relationships with everything in your perspective. We tend to focus on a handful of people in our lives and the dramas we produce, but the subconscious mind sees the relationships with everything, not just people. Imagine knowing as much about the life of the table in your room as you do about your closest friend. Imagine knowing that the water you just drank has a memory of an interesting family of fish that liked to play all day in the ocean. Imagine having a 'conversation' with the bone in your finger about what it was like being part of the Sun. Imagine knowing what pets and other animals and plants are thinking and feeling. Imagine an older person shouting at their television and it shouts back, in its own way. Now imagine that you do none of this at all but that all of this awareness is folded up in the sense of wonder and awesomeness you might have at any moment. There would be no need to experience any of these things â€“ just feel the life around you. This is no crazier than still hearing the same voice in your mind as you read these words when you don't need to. By sensing the eternal life around you, you are just interpreting what has been here all along, in a way that somehow makes sense as you feel yourself fold into the arms of the universe itself. Nothing is insignificant when there is so much of something else with which to compare. So here you are. A universe of relationships to explore and an endless variety of things to fold up into representations to have relationships with. It's certainly a mouthful, but all of this love, the beauty, the sadness, the cheeky grins, these countless swords and all the stories and songs that will ever be writen are a part of something so amazing it cannot actually be defined. This particular story â€“ the epic drama of existence â€“ is all that needs to be and is the most real thing that could ever possibly be. Beter than merely being something that exists, you are that which can relate with whatever you can imagine existing. You are the perfect balance between chaos and order, and you don't even realize it yet. 55
You are all that you need to be right now. There is no need to be anyone else, go anywhere else, do anything else, other than what you are doing right now in your perspective. Until, of course, you re-interpret everything again and continue to explore who you are. In one word, the you that you have been trying to define is perfection.

The Greuatest Trick
Afer more than 500 years since Copernicus first turned his mind to the cosmos, cosmologists seem to agree that only about 4% of the universe is understood. The remaining 96% is unknown and termed 'dark mater' or 'dark energy', which seems to be an other way to say that nearly all of the universe is a complete mystery. As well, science still doesn't understand why the act of observation would afect the measurements of sub-atomic particles. However, it is understood forces like gravity can influence the visual perception of moving objects10 and the perception of time, and the mind can be influenced by other forces like electromagnetism. There are also some new theories on the fringes of quantum physics11 that suggest the mind can interact with information in the universe at the Planck scale12. Qantum physics tells us that is impossible to gain information about an electron, for example, without changing its state. Qantum Metaphysics tells us that we are not measuring an electron (and thus changing its state from an observation of it) but, first and foremost, measuring our own perspective. The observer afects what is observed because there is no diference between the two. From this perspective, modern physics sounds more like hocus-pocus. The Logian understands that observation comes from perception and that we could never possibly observe anything outside of our perception. The universe could not possibly be divorced from perspective because perception of anything (including everything, or even other perspectives) is entirely subjective. Physicists may think that consciousness can't be measured, but if that was true then it means that consciousness cannot be measured in any way. If we consider the capacity of consciousness as a form of measurement, then a way to measure consciousness could be to simply be aware of one thing. Consciousness – through relationships and interactions – is itself a measurement of reality. In order for us to measure consciousness, we must first realize that consciousness is the ultimate instrument. Any measurement in our perspective is a measurement of our perspective, in a way that is relative to how it is being measured. What would science be without observation? And has anything truly been observed except for one's own perspective? Theoretical physics has made nearly zero progress in nearly one hundred years, ofering less discovery and testable new ideas than the children's toy market. We can almost measure this lack of progress with a pogo stick and come to the conclusion that modern physics is in dire need of a quantum Reformation. Somehow, in all of the 'beautiful' mathematics that modern physics has turned into (that, coincidentally, there can never be proof for) as it sacrificed science for politics, we have lost perspective. 10 “Your Perception of Gravity Is All Relative, Study Finds” htp://www.livescience.com/131906-brain-perceives-gravitysenses.html 11 “The Weird Efects of the Mind and Gravity” htp://www.neuroquantology.com/index.php/journal/article/view/621 12 Definition at htps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_scale
Rather than experiencing the laws of physics, thermodynamics, biology, chemistry, etc., a Logian understands that we are experiencing the nature of perspective. Consciousness is not by itself logical, nor does it follow any law. However, your experience and interpretation of reality follows the law of perspective. The reality beyond perspective is meaningless because it cannot be perceived. The universe and everything in it is a representation of the process of perspective wrapped up in a nice logical narrative that takes shape as a seemingly endless expression of consciousness, mater, relationships, equations, ideas, geometries, realities, stories, thoughts, and everything else. We look up at the stars and think of them as being many light years away, forgeting that they are as close as our own perspective. It is the greatest trick in the universe. 3.02
The Logic of E=MC2
The most famous formula in all of science, Einstein's E=MC2, is a work of genius. It is also irrational. Although the equation explains the relationship between mass and energy (energy equals mass times the speed of light squared), there is no clear definition of what energy means in physics. The concept of energy is abstract and not defined nearly as well as the concepts of mass or momentum. One of the greatest minds in science makes our understanding of energy clear by saying, â€œIt is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge what energy is.â€? (Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics.) If we are unable to define what energy is, how are we able to define what it is equal to? QMe defines energy as the measurable, harmonic resistance between space and time (chaos and order). Or, as applied to Einstein's formula, between time (mass) and space (time squared, or the maximum velocity of information). In QMe, mass is a measurement of relationships in a unit of spacetime13. The 'speed of light' is the rate at which the units interact to exchange information about other areas of spacetime. This information exchange follows a certain patern, so we can predict how much mass will result in how much energy. This simple dynamic leads to all kinds of observable phenomena in physics. For example, the excited nature of light in space has much more information regarding interactions than does mass, which has more information about relationships. Without information about relationships, however, the light in space cannot interact. Therefore, more excited light gets the more information it needs about relationships. The phenomena of light bending towards objects with the most mass is a mater of light photons (positively charged) interacting with those objects that have the information it needs about spacetime relationships (negatively charged, such as our planet). The result of the resistance between these two forces is what we call energy. Put another way, E=MC2 can be writen simply as Energy=Spacetime. Energy is the harmonic resistance between space (chaos) and time (order). [Note: We can also think of space as the square of time, as we will see.]
13 There is no irreducible unit of spacetime, per se, however, so this value is relative to the observer. This would mean that there is an irreducible unit of perspective.
We can also say that energy is equivalent to the medium in which it is perceived. Energy is the value of the information in a given unit of space over time. When something produces no energy it is not perceived, as there is no information about its existence (and is, thus, beyond observation). It follows that energy is equivalent to spacetime. If we wanted to see how much information is in a particular system, we just square the value of relationships at its center. For example, let's say we wanted to know the size of our solar system. First, we take what we can measure (in this case, the speed of light.) We must then realize that the speed we measure is not the true speed, but the speed of our interface with it. In order to perceive light (as we know it) we have to unpack it and make it more complex than it actually is. This interfacing layer is always either a folding of complexity (towards order) or an unfolding (towards chaos). In our physicality, we have de-compressed light in order to get the light that we see. [Note: This is similar to how we must fold the space of water in order to get ice, as we will learn in section 3.06.] As light is measured at 299,792 km/s, half of it is 149,896 km/s. This is the 'speed' of light from the core of the sun, where it is very dense. When we square this number we get 22 billion kilometers in one second, the size of the solar system in one second. But why would we measure the size of the solar system in seconds? That is because space is always relative to time. If we wanted to know the size of something, we would need to determine it in relation to time. Something could not be just 5 meters wide, for example, but 5 meters wide between August 5th and November 4th. (Although in saying it the former way, we are already implying that it is [now] 5 meters wide.) In this way, we are considering the two axes of spacetime – yes, only two – as related to anything in perspective, just as you would if you were navigating a ship and needed information about both longitude and latitude. We do this ofen while speaking without realizing it. We would say that a movie (chaos) is three hours long (order), for example. Or the house (order) is two hundred square meters in size (chaos). Even the speed of light is measured in space and time (kilometers per second). Everything in spacetime would need to be measured in both space and time. If you didn't catch it above, “... the size of the solar system in one second,” is quite important with regards to QMe. It means that the size of the solar system has no upper limit without regards to time. It is interpreted as smaller or larger, depending on the time units involved. It also means that the smallest particle is no diferent than the entire universe as a whole. That's why energy is so important, as it is information about spacetime that depends on other information for its value. However, before we get into energy we will illustrate the Chaonic Field, the source of spacetime. [Feel free to skip to the last section if the next few get too confusing.] 3.03
The Chuaonic Field
The essence of mater is not perceived directly. Spacetime is the only medium in which we can perceive anything. Mater – and all reality – that is independent of perspective is referred 58
to here as the Chaonic Field. The Chaonic Field is made up of two sub-fields that converge into spacetime and everything else that we perceive. These sub-fields are the Relative Field (RF) and the Interactive Field (IF).
You can think of the Chaonic Field as the Nothing that chaos and order are trying to find (in order to atract or repel it) but cannot. Each is looking for information that the other has in order to find it, but for diferent reasons. For simplicity's sake, let's say that order is looking for information to know where to atract, while chaos is looking for information to know when to repel. Within the Chaonic Field are nested, alternating positive and negative cycles. These alternations come about because of the exchange of information in the form of energy. From this, the appearance of motion, being, life, and things comes about. Let's see how this works for something that we know. Imagine that you're looking at the Earth as it was billions of years ago. It is just a ball of dust. This dust came from somewhere so that means it was either atracted to something or repelled by something. This means it is carrying an electrical charge. Let's say that this charge has a value of +112. Other particles of dust will sense the charge of it (we'll see how later). Those that are positive (red) will be repelled by it, while those that are negative (blue) will be atracted to it. Those that have a positive charge around +112 will repel it the most, while those that have a negative charge around -112 will be most atracted to it.
Soon our red dust particle is surrounded by blue dust particles of opposing charge. This is chaos and order at work; we have a relationship through charge and interaction through 59
proximity. Eventually, our red dust particle is surrounded by blue dust particles. This also has the efect of pushing away the blue dust particles that were atracted to the area because of the red particle. It also brings in the other red particles who were formerly pushed away.
Now the patern of the Chaonic Field is beginning to emerge. We have a core surrounded by other particles. The dust particle that used to be ordinary is now transformed into something else – a nucleus. Every particle is itself a Chaonic Field and is made up of the 4 fundamental forces of SPPI: structure, chaos-potential, order-potential, and interaction. The internal fluctuation between chaos and order causes the appearance of 'spin'. The more imbalanced it is the more it seems to spin, like a pendulum that is pulled too far back and moves to maintain equilibrium.
At the equator of the particle is information about relationships being pushed out. The particle communicates to the other particles around it about relationships. At each pole there is information about interactions being pulled in from those particles that are immediately surrounding it. All the information that has ever been communicated by a particle boils down to one of two questions: “I am a net negative,” or, “I am a net positive.” That's it. No other information is ever 60
communicated by particles, systems, you, or anyone or anything else. This is the quantum in Qantum Metaphysics. But how is this possible? How does a -112 particle find +112 particles? And how are you able to get spagheti sauce all over your shirt and be totally unaware of the quite basic realities going on at the quantum level? To illustrate how this is possible, imagine that you're driving along a road in the country at night and your car gets stuck. Your phone batery is dead so you need to find someone to help you. You see an area with four farm houses that are a bit distant from each other. You want to know just one thing. â€œWhich one should I go to?â€?
You intuitively know that you should pick the house with the most lights. That means there might be several people inside and there's a good chance they're all awake and there might be someone who is able to help. You avoid the house with fewer lights because your chances of finding help probably would not be as good. Now imagine that in each house the lights were constantly turned on and of. All the houses have intermitent lighting, but there are two houses that keep their lights on more than others. Of course, you decide to go to the house between these two that kept its light on most ofen. Back to our dust particle, it doesn't 'know' where to to find particles with opposing values that it can be atracted to. It is most atracted to surrounding systems with a consistent signal. The longer the signal the greater the chance that a particle will 'choose' it. It's safe to say that if a system has been net-negative for a while then there are probably a lot more negative particles inside it than positive. Those that shif back and forth between positive and negative probably have fewer net negative particles. This makes it easy for systems that are highly negative (due to the 'length' of time it has been net-negative) to atract the greatest number of opposing particles to achieve equilibrium. As information is pushed out from a system's nucleus its complexity unfolds. The more it interacts the more complex it gets. And, as it is pulled in again, it folds into simplicity. All particles from the Chaonic Field are actually chaons (in this book referred to as photons because chaons cannot be perceived) that become an electron or a neutron and other particles, depending on its spin and radius. Through many cycles of spins in the Chaonic Field, a chaon can transform into anything that can be perceived.
Let's see again how the Chaonic Field allows a particle of dust to become the Earth and its atmosphere, as we did in section 1.05. 61
A layer of chaos is always enveloped by a layer of order. This process unfolds in everything from small particles to planets, solar systems, and beyond. Less obviously is the way it manifests in our daily lives when we pour a cup of tea or talk with friends, but the process is the same. Each layer is interpreted diferently. Of your personal identity, for example, one layer would look like your body, whereas the layer 'underneath' would be under your skin, and the layer on top would be the electromagnetic radiation emanating from it.
When we re-define the elements of the SPPI process, we can get the color spectrum, for example:
Or the spin of an electron:
Changing the potentials again we get a water molecule:
Hydrogen expands via endless combustion while oxygen contracts via oxidation, forming a water molecule as the poiesis of equilibrium unfolds. Water molecules then go through the same process as they balance between expansion (as a gas) and contraction (as a solid) to reach a liquid state. Mater, like reality, is the narrative of positive and negative charges balancing relative to the structure of what the result (the representation) is interfering with. Diferent kinds of mater are diferent ways to interpret these relationships. We do not perceive mater directly, however. We perceive only our interpretation of it. There are as many interpretations of the same basic relationships as there are perspectives. As each thing interacts with every other thing we get a complex, harmonious, and seemingly infinite reality. Every system and sub-system â€“ from the smallest of particles to the most complex social structures to gravity and beyond â€“ has the Chaonic Field at its core. Through the oscillation of positive and negative charges we perceive a picture that we call reality. However, SPPI does not just show how mater and everything else is formed. More than that, it shows how perspective forms mater within it. Perspective is the origin of the universe and everything within. How we interpret the SPPI is up to us.
Folding uand Unfolding
In QMe, nothing exists until it interacts with something else. This also means that the entire universe is contained within your current perspective and need only exist inasmuch as you are interacting with it. Each thing in your perspective is a representation that you use to interface with something else. Illusions are enough for interactions to take place, and nothing in your perspective needs to be real for reality to emerge. If you're siting in a closed room, for example, everything outside of it doesn't need to be 'rendered' if you're not interacting with it. You can have sunlight with no Sun. Schroedinger's cat isn't in the box afer it closes. It can meow with only the meow needing to exist. Everything else about the cat is neatly folded into the box. Your perspective is highly eficient and wastes nothing. No energy is used, none is wasted. Just as you can compress a complex concept into a simpler one by giving it a name, your perspective folds everything into simpler representations. When you interact with something it unfolds the complexity. A complex thing in one part of your perspective can be interpreted as a more simple thing in another part, which will change the perception of it completely. A distant geomagnetic explosion may be interpreted, closer to your immediate perspective, as political chaos in a particular country. An interesting 5-dimensional cloud may be an old colleague. The sound of running across the floor may unfolded as a breeze on Venus. The representations themselves don't mater – nature doesn't care if something is a boat, a teapot, a contract, or a sun, only we do. Here is, roughly, what this looks like for a group of particles:
On a quantum level in your perspective, when you interact with something you are multiplying the units of information by 2. You may stop at the first multiplication – even before it, if harmony isn't your thing – or continue on until you reach the end of the cycle (which is the square of the value of the nucleus). This is not a conscious decision to interact with something, of course. It's a quantum decision of whether or not one thing is compatible 64
with something else, and will atract or repel it accordingly. That is to say, “Is the next fold up/down a net positive or net negative?”. The other layers that are immediately up or down from it are irrelevant, because all of their information has already been folded/unfolded in those surrounding layers. In a similar way, the Sun does not push or pull on a distant object but is atracted and repelled by things relative to it in the chain of relationships, and atracts and repels the distant object only as it is folded into the more relative object. To the Sun, there is no need for the distant object to exist, as it is already harmoniously folded in the closer relationships. [See Notes for a bit more on the Chaonic Field.] 3.05
The purpose of energy is to communicate charge status – either negative or positive – across the Chaonic Field. It does not transmit the charge itself but only information about the charge. Energy is feedback about interactions and relationships. One of most basic laws of physics is the Law of the Conservation of Energy, which states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but only changed from one form to another. QMe extends that to hold that energy does not exist independent of perspective, but depends on it entirely. Just as a story can 'exist' in the relationship between individual frames of a motion picture, energy can 'exist' in the relationship between things. There is no actual energy, or even motion, between frames – there doesn't need to be. The motion is abstract, just as energy is. However, it could be said that energy is a function of mater rather than something that is produced from mater. The universe (or, more accurately, your perspective) does not waste energy. It is so eficient, in fact, that it does not use energy at all.14 It only needs to relate to and interact with the things that comprise it. The relationships and interactions between one thing and an other thing is not created or destroyed, it simply changes. Information about interactions are communicated by photons, whereas more massive photons – called electrons – communicate information about relationships to the nucleus. 'Potential energy' is a folding of information, whereas 'kinetic energy' is the unfolding of it. In DNA, for example, information is folded ('compacted') in chromosomes, which builds up potential energy (velocity) for the unfolding of rapid cell growth. The more something can be set according to relationships (such as phi or symmetry) the more kinetic energy can be unfolded. The building up of potential energy could be considered a storing of information. It is information more at-rest than in motion, though is never completely at rest or completely in motion (as its existence couldn't be communicated in either extreme). When information is set in motion it becomes kinetic energy. Communication of Energy How is energy communicated to other particles?
14 Of course, it can't use what it doesn't really have. There's no need to: pretending to do it is more efective. You get the same 'result' without any energy expenditure.
Here is the only information that is ever communicated. That is to say, all the energy in the universe can be boiled down to this:
These Chaonic Fields are anywhere and everywhere in reality, but are never observed for what they are. If you were a cell in your body, for example, you'd take chaos inputs from your environment (e.g., whatever your body interacts with, such as the sun) into your nucleus and output proteins. You would only be able to perform one function at a time (either input or output) but you could switch as fast as you'd like. However, too much information about interactions would cause you to become cancerous, whereas too much information about relationships would cause you to protect yourself too much, and you would die. Switching functions is essential to maintain the integrity of the Chaonic Field. Life is the continual balance between chaos and order. All of reality is this relationship between illusions, given real life by interactions and interpreted by your perspective. 3.06
Muass uand Being
The definition of mass in classical physics is the property of mater that causes it to resist any change in its motion (inertia). This definition is okay for the purposes of QMe, but it begins to break down at the quantum level. If classical physics says a photon is never at rest, how can it be said that a photon resists changes in its motion more than anything else (because it has no mass)? In QMe, mass is a measurement of relationships rather than substance. It is informationat-rest and, although we may say that a photon is moving, there is no movement with a photon because it is already where it needs to be. Just like a bug frozen in a block of ice doesn't need to move in order to communicate information to others about its state, the 66
photon and other particles don't need to waste energy moving, especially when moving isn't possible. In classical physics, the photon should not be moving at all. Another interesting diference is that in QMe, mass is the opposite of what it is in classical physics. Let's illustrate the diference:
It is easy to look at 1kg of ice compared with 1kg of water, and see that water takes up more space as it turns to ice. However, this is not the case. As water turns to ice, each particle takes up less space. Ice has less information about interactions (motion) and therefore 'heat' is what compels the particles to become more tightly packed, as the information that heat exchanges with cold is compressed and folded into smaller units of space. As ice turns to water, each particle takes up more space. Water has more information about relationships (mass) and therefore 'cold' is what compels the particles to become more free, as the information that cold exchanges with heat is unpacked into greater units of space.
Compression (folding) is a centripetal acceleration. You could say that as water turns to ice its particles are still accelerating, but the acceleration is directed to its center instead of outward. This vortex motion causes it to fold, decreasing its spatial magnitude as its mass increases. Mass, then, is a contraction of space. This contraction is an electrical charge, which is a representation of the summed mass of all the system's sub-particles. The electrical charge is information about relationships that have been folded from inside the system, and is strongest at the nucleus. The messenger of this charge â€“ electrons â€“ define time and communicate information regarding relationships to other particles. This informationcarrying charge allows harmony to be maintained in a sea of chaos. Think of mass as memory, where information is stored for later use. It is simply being, or the 'path of least resistance' for a particle when litle information is had about interactions. 3.07
Velocity uand Motion
If you were on a train travelling at 200 kilometers an hour and looked over to the person siting across from you, they would appear not to be moving at all. That is because you'd be sharing the same inertial frame of reference. When you look at the mass of things just about everything appears to have mass â€“ except the photon. That is because the photon shares the same frame of reference as your perspective. Existence begins when information is in motion, and information is transmited by the photon. It is no coincidence that we can see, hear, taste, smell and more because of the photon, the carrier of electromagnetic information. But what would velocity be if nothing actually moved? If we imagine that the universe has nowhere to move, can we imagine that all motion is not real but an illusion of change based on a frame of reference within the universe? If there is only perspective then nothing really moves at all, but propagates via information about movement instead. In QMe, velocity is the rate at which information is unfolded. Photons do not move any more than cookie recipes do. Rather, photons define space by transmiting information regarding interactions to other particles.
The maximum speed of interactions in a Chaonic Field is the square of its mass value. This is also the radius of the field and is its 'now' (as we will see in the next section). If the nucleus of a Chaonic Field has a value of 7, the maximum velocity of information would be 49, which also determines the size of the field. Let's illustrate this with Einstein's E=MC2 equation.
The edge of velocity – of chaos – is as much a nucleus at the inner mass is. At the end of each cycle we find reproductive systems where the cycle can begin again as well as interface layers to regulate the systems outside it and turn them into processes inside it. In the Chaonic Field of the human body, for example, the ectoderm creates layers of the skin, lining of the mouth, nostrils, sweat glands, hair, nails, tooth enamel, brain, and neurons to interface with the environment outside the body's Chaonic Field. The size of the field – the initial value of time/mass – determines whether or not the (nonextant) chaon that has been set into motion becomes an electron, neutron, photon, or something else. The radius of the field sets the properties of relationship and interaction, which we interpret to be diferent particles with diferent behaviour and characteristics.. Cosmologists continue to say that the Earth revolves around the Sun, even though they know that it would be impossible for the Earth or another of the other planets to actually do so, as the Sun is moving too fast in its own orbit for the Earth to catch up. The Earth has never once been able to revolve around the Sun because of the limitations the size of its field imposes. The picture we have of the solar system is as inaccurate and incomplete as our picture of photons, electrons, and other particles. It is dificult to imagine the Sun moving along its own orbit, independent of its planets. It is also dificult to imagine photons, electrons, and other particles that don't move at all. Velocity is not actually motion – nothing moves. Instead, it is the rate at which information about spacetime is 'received' by particles. We interpret this as speed when it is far more than that.
As velocity increases, the radius of a Chaonic Field over spacetime increases, allowing for greater interaction. When a particle lacks suficient information about relationships its space is amplified. We interpret this to be an increase in motion, but for the particle the increased 'motion' is its path of least resistance in spacetime. (That is to say, the particle transmits information about space in the direction where there is a deficit of information regarding interactions. The more information about interactions, the greater the velocity. You might interpret this in your perspective as an increase in gas afer something you just ate, something falling to the floor, or needing to run for the train. Perspective is prety clever, isn't it?) 3.08
The Reluative Nowhere
Space and time are not experienced independently, so always have proportionate values. Anything taking up space is also taking up time, and vice versa. The resistance between the two sides of the same force of spacetime â€“ the now â€“ is like a capacitor, or store of energy in an electrical field. As nothing can exist that is absolutely balanced, everything that exists is at least slightly out of balance and works towards equilibrium to maintain natural proportions. This allows us to have a 'now' that has two directions â€“ chaos-as-possibility ahead of you, and order-as-memory behind you. Time makes space relative to your perspective, and thus perceivable. When you look out into the universe you see this efect much more pronounced. Looking at one galaxy you see it as it was 3.2 billion years ago. Looking in an other direction you are looking back in time several hundred million years. Each thing in space is a diferent time. Each thing that appears to take up 'space' or 'time' is actually taking up spacetime. All things exist in the same space because space is an illusion brought to life by interacting with time in spacetime. Two galaxies exist in the same space but appear to be two separate things because of this time-spacing efect. It is one thing, divided by time. It is all the same thing: the Chaonic Field. Breaking it down makes it perceivable. But it must be broken down into a seemingly infinite array of spacetime. Each Chaonic Field is a 'now', be it the field of your body or the sun. As space expands, time contracts. Let's illustrate this again:
To our Sun, 1 year is equal to approximately 225,000,000 Earth years. Compared to the Earth, the Sun's space has expanded and its time contracted to contain a greater “now” in one unit of space. The 'now' of your body is diferent than the 'now' of your cells because of size which, generally-speaking conforms to the radius of its Chaonic Field. To you, however, all things within your Chaonic Field (your body) are running on the same clock.
The largest unit of space is that where the smallest unit of time can be found, making for an eternal now. The largest unit of time is where there is the densest mass, making for an eternal here. Less than half a day ago (to the Sun) humanity hadn't even begun. And we have never lef the Big Bang. How massive is a mountain when, to itself, it might be running? 3.09
Modern Science, Arguuably, Huas Un-scientific Founduations
Science, although useful in the pursuit of ourselves, is unfortunately based upon the untested hypothesis that reality can accurately be perceived. Ignoring that, scientists seem to agree that we can perceive almost nothing – less than 1% of what exists. This contradiction is generally unstudied, as perspective is not able to be factored into modern equations. The fact that science does not test its basic assumptions – accurate perception – shows that science only applies its own core scientific principles when the result does not threaten its foundations. We can argue, fuss, and fight over how we think it isn't important or doesn't apply, but of course it does. It is time the scientific method is applied to science itself. Scientific observations are assumed to be objective when they are subjective 15 because they 15 Qantum physicists understand that there isn't a reality independent of our observation, but don't understand that what we are observing is the nature of our own perspective (rather than elementary particles).
rely on subjective perceptions. We may think that the instrument through which an observation is being made is objective and does not interfere, but how are we observing the instrument itself? How can quantum physicists hold that the observer afects what is being observed but not reason that the medium through which the observation is made might have something to do with it? Unfortunately, modern science would fail its own test; the scientific method cannot be tested scientifically because the foundations of the method rest upon assumptions independent from experience. "..there are certain philosophical assumptions made at the base of the scientific method â€“ namely, that reality is objective and consistent, that humans have the capacity to perceive reality accurately, and that rational explanations exist for elements of the real world. These assumptions are the basis of naturalism, the philosophy on which science is grounded.." â€“ Kate and Vitaly (2000) The nature of something cannot be observed independently of the observation (as it actually is). There will always be 'perception' of something, even when perceiving through an apparatus. Are you perceiving properties of the electron, properties of the electron microscope, or properties of your perspective? Only maths is a real science, as it does not need to be based on reality. But even then, those doing the maths don't realize that they are only interfacing with the nature of perspective, not looking at God's underwear. Even the mind is an apparatus, albeit a more complex one that tricks us even more cleverly than our eyes. Few are able to see this illusion for what it is, as that which is considering the nature of the illusion is the same as that which is performing the illusion. This means that scientists are not observing reality directly, but observing the reality of their instruments. To someone holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail. To someone looking through a kaleidoscope, everything looks kaleidoscopic. You're not seeing the reality of Germany by analyzing the word, though it may seem like it if the interface is interesting enough. Although we can theorize about particles, we can only perceive the results in our perspective, which is the only medium that particles exist in. The instrument that is used for the measurement or observation is rarely considered as afecting the measurement or observation, but ofen what is being observed are the efects of the instrument and whatever it is relative to rather than what is being observed. It is obvious when you look through a telescope that your perspective is changed, but less obvious when using other instruments because one has no physical frame of reference with which to compare and use to model what is being perceived. Instruments can be references of interpretation, but are used as a means to observe reality. Looking through an electron microscope we do not see electrons. We see the reality of the electron microscope.16 If you invented a new gestalt spectrometer that is designed to capture oompa particles, you'd probably find them eventually with a bit of tweaking. But it doesn't mean that they exist outside of your interpretation. Satisfied with your results you'd find a place for it in the logical narrative of your field of science. Other scientists could then find the same particles using the same or a similar instrument, verifying your results. However, other instruments without such relationships in their immediate geometry, like a pair of binoculars, will not allow you to interpret oompa particles in the same way. (Remember though: the other scientists would also be a part of your perspective, as would their findings be.) The benefit of science is not in discovery of the truth, but discovery of what is useful right now. We may not be able to accurately perceive reality, but we can learn how to look at the steppingstones that will take us there.
16 We are, more accurately, looking into that section of the geometry where the instrument appears.
Is the Universe Infinite?
The world around you seems to go on forever, to the outermost reaches of the universe and beyond. But does it really? Are we really looking at something infinite when we peer out into the heavens or into the endlessly layered details of the microscopic world? Cosmologists use maths to help explain the universe. But we mustn't confuse the infinities of maths with the infinities of the universe. Of course numbers can go on forever if that's the kind of system we use. If we divide 10 by 2 we get a nice round number. But dividing 10 by 3 we get a fraction that goes on forever. So where did the infinity hiding for the first calculation? Did we somehow outwit the universe by trying to calculate the exact tax on a stick of gum? We're using the same maths logic, but in this example we've shifed from a 10-2 to a 10-3 way of looking at reality. Why do some things appear finite while other things, in the same system, appear infinite? Why does my body appear finite from the perspective of my eyes but infinite from the perspective of an electron microscope? In some perspectives, infinity appears to exist (when it doesn't really). Does infinity exist because we have come up with a way of counting where some results seem to go on forever? The real question is, “Can infinity be perceived?” Logians hold that we cannot ever perceive what is beyond our perception, and that if infinite potentials actually existed then there would be no perspective. Therefore, infinity is meaningless because it represents that which cannot be perceived. We atempt to 'perceive the infinite' by perceiving the finite. In order to discover a basic and concise explanation for the world around us, we must start from the right place. If we, for example, tried to calculate the exact tax on our stick of gum from a 10-3 perspective, it may take quite a long time. We may even come up with a logical narrative to explain the complexity, postulating that the convenience store exists in 10 dimensions or has a counterpart in 3 parallel universes, and then invent a method to describe it all that looks absolutely beautiful – from the 10-3 perspective. We then become so emotionally atached to what we've created we probably wouldn't care to realize that an elementary school drop-out could figure out that we need a 10-2 perspective, something more relative to what was being observed. If I brought home for you a nice big Box of Chaonic Fields, its reality could not be contained in any one perception. Looking into it you would think that the box went on forever in endless dimensions. It would appear infinite, because you would not be able to perceive it in its entirety. It would look very much like the universe. In our above example, we cannot perceive the entirety of 10 divided by 3 but we can perceive the entirety of 10 divided by 2. In one way reality appears infinite because it cannot be easily defined. It appears chaotic – but chaos is simply an order that isn't yet in our perspective. From our perspective the universe seems to go on forever in every direction. The only diference is that there is no perspective that can 'define' the entirety of the universe, so it appears infinite. Some perspectives just have diferent logical narratives than others. Some of these logical narratives provide a more useful explanation of everything and how to work with it. Some of these narratives can put you on the other side of the galaxy using abstract methodologies. But they are all just patern-making, however useful the paterns would be under certain conditions. Reality can only be approximated. Our universe seems complex because we're starting from a vantage point that makes it appear that way. We're looking at a 10 and using a 3 to perceive it. Our maths will go on forever (and keep a number of physicists employed forever, as well). We make observations but rule out perception (and mind) as irrelevant, when instead they could be the primary tool for discovery that harmonizes all of what we perceive. We build exceedingly expensive machines that do the same work as a child could do – if we started from a perspective that was more relevant to what we're observing. 73
If the universe was infinite there would be no reality. --If you like this book please rate it on Amazon at htps://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FB6ML0O Notes 1.00
When scientists can only calculate (rather than measure) things like the mass of the universe or vast distances, they are guessing. Calculations, methodologies, and results change more times than scientists are willing to admit, and that makes it a mystery. If we have two liquids in a jar of unknown size and can only measure one liquid, we can't actually know what percentage of the jar the other takes up, and thus can't know how much of the jar is filled. Dark mater and dark energy is said to account for more than 95% of the universe's mass, but this is really just a best-guess. 'Constants' aren't really constants at all, but every-changing filler for holes in calculations where the meat should be [such as with the Hubble Constant, perhaps the most important cosmological discovery ever made, and the findings of astronomer Kris Stanek and an approximate 15% miscalculation in the position of a particular galaxy, which in cosmology is a tremendously large error that went unnoticed for nearly 90 years]. The eventual corrections are not called such, of course, but are simply forgoten or given names like “improved determination” [htp://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.11033/PhysRevLet.111.1013102]. This is because the constants are not actual measurements but useful calculations that appear to be measurements and are used as such. When we consider that calculations will always be mere approximations of reality, then we can begin to see reality (and the act of observation) for what it really is. 1.00 Have we truly made much scientific progress over the past 500 years in the way of understanding the universe when most of the fundamental questions we had then are still unanswered? Or, do we consider progress to be discovering more things that can be useful but are not fundamental, like faster internet speeds and discovery of new or imaginary sub-atomic particles? We seem to have just come up with more complicated questions that keep us distracted from thinking about the fact that we don't really understand much at all. We understand fundamental questions about plumbing but not what holds it all together. 1.00 The laws of nature are simple and easily understood by design. If the laws that governed all of existence were not simple, how could they apply to everything from the smallest particle to the gentlest of social interactions to the most complex system? We agree that complex systems arise from the interaction of simple components, but it doesn't dictate that all such systems need to be described with more complex systems that only a few can truly understand. If a 'final theory' is too complicated for a person of average intelligence to understand, then it has failed to apply its own rules to itself (that it be a simple way to understand everything). If we lef it to the exclusive domain of physicists and cosmologists to describe how to fall in love, the great majority of us would have never been born. (Thank goodness that understanding the universe is far less important!)
1.00 Science now understands that 'color' doesn’t exist outside of our brain's interpretation of it. As well, there are no universal rules that define ‘color’ solely on the physical properties 74
of light. Color is subjective rather than objective, even though it appears consistently throughout your reality. What our brain does is perform an amazing feat of calculation, taking the relationships between the impulses generated from cells in our eye and interpreting them as color where no real color exists. Rather than being a property of the thing that we're looking at, color is a sensation that exists entirely in our minds. 1.00 Note that certain concepts and illustrations have been simplified (or not included) to make the book easier for the average person to understand. 1.00 The word “Logia” is here meant as a particular system of reason (from the Greek logos). 1.00 The answer to the universe's ultimate question will likely never be found by philosophers, clergy, or scientists because it is far bigger than any one domain. It also doesn't help that many religions place belief over a real understanding of whatever the universe may be, perhaps because thinking about how everything works doesn't seem to have any practical applications for everyday life. It followed that the religious search for an understanding of the universe became a search for believers, with a few still trying to understand the how and why of it all. T he end of religion wouldn't be too far away if anyone could answer these questions for themselves, so instead, any real answer is said to be unknowable and beyond the reach of the average person. On the more physical side, a true theory of everything in science would need to be something that could actually be applied to anything, from the very simple to the very complex. Such a theory would not actually appear to be scientific any more than it would appear to be social, political, religious, geophysical, biological, and whatever else it could be applied to, and would therefore not seem to be a worthy pursuit for scientists at all. The 'ultimate theory' would be generic and unassuming rather than the kind of shiny, complex thing that appeals to scientists who make careers out of discovering or making up reasons why certain complexities exist. It follows that the search for the ultimate understanding in science would be replaced with a search for status among peers via elegant hypotheses about problems that are, in a way, hypotheses themselves. Any universal equation would actually need to relate to everything, and therefore needs to make questions about the universe much more simple, not more complicated. However, the end of science as we know it wouldn't be too far away if the average person could answer these questions for themselves. So instead, any ultimate answer is said to be excruciatingly dificult and beyond the reach of all but a handful of scientists, if not no one at all. 1.02
We Do Not Actuually Wuant to Be Omniscient, But Become Omniscient
Whether you want to take this material in this book as 'proof of God' or not is up to you. Although I am by no means a religious person, I would go so far as to say that a belief in God is far more rational than saying that God doesn't exist. Saying that something doesn't exist requires proof of its non-existence, whereas a belief requires so such proof. 1.03
How Is It Possible to Understuand the Universe?
Pioneers of modern physics agree that the world we see is an illusion. “An independent reality, in the ordinary physical sense, can neither be ascribed to the phenomena nor to the agencies of observation.” - Niels Bohr "If one wants to give an accurate description of the elementary particle, the only thing which can be writen down as description is a probability function. But then one sees that not even the 75
quality of being belongs to what is described.” - Heisenberg 1.04
Whuat You See Are Interfuaces to Reluationships You Don't See
Humans are somewhere in the middle of the scale, perhaps. You don't perceive of every detail of our body or the trillions of processes going on inside it – but other forms of life do. The parts of your body do not act as united wholes. Some cells do not 'like' other cells. There are wars inside of your body when you get sick or have an illness, for example. Each 'body' or field of the cycle believes in an 'I'. A cell in your body says “myself” just as you do now, in its own way of course. The Earth is, in a similar way, made up of cells that look like you and I. 1.04 If we are perceiving something it is moving in some way and has at least a litle mass. Likewise, something cannot have infinite velocity or movement if we are perceiving it. 1.04 The speed of light in the Standard Model of physics has been measured where measurements make the most sense in relation to our inertial frame of reference – a few steps above the center of order. Here, it is not measured as being completely expanded (i.e., 'infinite') but is measured to have a certain speed and a photon to have no mass or very litle mass in a very contracted space.
How Would the Universe Perceive Itself?
All we need to understand reality is found in six numbers: the first three numbers of the Fibonacci series, and the first three prime numbers. These six numbers define the patern of perspective itself and is the foundation of everything in the universe that could ever be perceived. The Fibonacci series is a sequence of numbers that express various paterns found in nature17 such as seed heads, pinecones, fruits and vegetables, flowers, the distance of planets relative to our Sun, the spiral movement of leaf and branch distributions, honeybees, weather, galaxy formations, and even humans18. Modern financial systems also use it19. The sequence begins with 0 and 1, and the last two numbers are always added together to come up with the next in the series. Prime numbers are considered among mathematicians to be the building blocks of the universe. A prime number is any natural number that can only be divided by itself and 1 20. From the first three prime numbers (2, 3, and 5) we can extrapolate the first three numbers of the Fibonacci series – (0, 1, 1) and vice versa. These six numbers can tell us everything about the universe, its origins, who we are, what reality is, and much more. “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”— Nikola Tesla. We can break down 3, 6, and 9 to 1, 2, and 3. But the numbers by themselves are irrelevant. They allow us to see the patern and harmony of the universe and, as we will see, allow perspective to form. From it, Logians can extrapolate the formula for all of reality, the 'God equation'.
17 More examples can be found at htp://io9.com/519851588/15-uncanny-examples-of-the-golden-ratio-in-nature 18 Most of the human body's parts are of one, two, three and five segments: fingers, nose, mouth, eyes, and three segments to each limb. The proportions and measurements of the body also conform to the golden ratio, as Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man illustrates. When a person's face conforms to these proportions, using various points such as their pupil, nose tip, hairline, nose width, etc., we say that their face is “beautiful”. 19 Reference htp://www.investopedia.com/articles/technical/04/0331104.asp 20 However, for most of the history of prime numbers, the number “1” was part of the club.
There are four parts of perspective and reality:
Structure (or logic) Potential – infinite (chaos) Potential – limited (order) Interaction
However, the three elements of structure, potential, and interaction represent the minimum number of relationships required for perspective to form. Simply put, reality is formed by limiting infinity with some kind of structure and allowing the two sides of potential to interact harmoniously.
The God Equuation uand Whuat It Meuans for Your Reuality
It follows that the Old Testament represents chaos, while the New Testament represents order. In the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu writes, “The Tao is like a well; use but never used up. It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities. It is hidden but always present. I don't know who gave birth to it. It is older than God.” Also in Taoism, the tension between opposing forces yin and yang creates qi (or “chi”), which is life energy.
1.07 Although the cycle of complexity is indefinite due to Chaos wanting it to go on forever, the force of Order is at work to fold everything that exists into our current perspective. Everything in the universe is represented somehow in your current experience. You could say that everything that exists contains the algorithm for God, but of course we're talking about the nature of perspective. 1.07 The complexity of subsequent equations is the square of distance from the first. In this book we cover only the first two cycles, and a few examples of the third cycle. The first cycle is the basic Chaos:Order relationship. The second cycle is the God Equation. The third cycle are things like space and time. 1.07 In order for the illusion of 'something' to be possible, two things are happening simultaneously to bring about a result. Chaos tries to resist being the void by doubling or squaring Order to make everything infinite in space, while Order tries to fuse everything together in time (a 1:1 relationship) so that the cycle of birth-death-birth may be repeated again. Neither of these are balanced, however. But between all the doubling and the fusing, a harmony between 1 and 2 is found that is a good compromise (called the golden ratio, 1.618, with the 'nothing' that repeats the cycle making it lean a bit more towards Chaos.) In this cycle, nothing becomes something, then simultaneously becomes two things (chaos and order) in order to have existence, then four things, and so on. Afer it has gone from the very simple to the very complex, it reverses the process and simplifies again. However, we need only to take to see what happens soon afer the first step to find the formula that creates all of reality: QMe's God Equation.
The Potential sides of a SPPI are what makes us able to approximate reality. One thing pretending to be two things (via opposing sides) that interact together in a structure, forming a reality. Let's take a look at some of the names we know the illusion of opposing sides by.
One side wants to expand forever (chaos) while the other side works to limit the expansion (order). When the two sides interact in a certain way â€“ forming a relationship â€“ you get a representation, or approximation of the relationship called a resistance. The new representation can then form another relationship with anything else, though the success of that enterprise will depend on compatibility. When anything on the lef interacts with anything on the right, we get something we can use. When creation interacts with destruction we get life, for example. When velocity interacts with mass in a certain way we get radiant energy. When female interacts with male in a certain way, we get baby. Each of these systems can have subsystems of their own. The illusions can also interact with other illusions to form reality. An electrical field, for example, interacting with time is an electrical wave as the radius of the field spins. All of the illusions interacting together forms the entire universe. But not every aspect is balanced. The threshold for harmonized potential is pi/2.
As you can see, in the beginning the two sides of potential are imbalanced, yet still harmonious.21 We can have too much of one side and not enough of the other side. We can find extreme cold, too much production, too much pressure, too much strength, etc. However, these aspects will eventually relate to other aspects to balance out and are, by nature, always harmonious. You can think of something that is “too strong” as being chaotically harmonious and in the beginning of a more harmonious relationship (1:2). 22 It might even interact with something that makes it very weak to balance the equation. But, again, imbalances are still harmonious. The more a Potential interacts with other Potentials the more equilibrium there is between the two forces as it approaches a more balanced ratio, called the golden ratio (1.618). 23 21 Note that this is a simplification. It, for example, should not imply that there is too much chaos and not enough order. In this example there is a lot of chaos/expansion in the beginning, to be sure, but this is balanced out in other ways. The two sides are imbalanced at the micro level but harmonious at their core. 22 As everything interacts, you can also have relationships such as 2:8 (something that would be “too cold”, for example) or 3:55 (something that would be “too massive”, for example). 23 We can also multiply any number in the Fibonacci series by QMe's prime numbers, “123,” and get a sum that is another number in the series (10 places up) plus another number in the series (10 places down). Multiplying
When an illusion interacts with another illusion of the same type (positive-to-positive, for example) discordance results. Discord is natural and can be maintained for a while, but it is not balanced. A lack of balance may mean that more illusions from the other side are required to smooth out the equation. A lack of harmonious relationships is highly ineficient. For example, we can take a trip into space using discordant methods (such as a misunderstanding of spacetime) but it will require far more time, space, energy, and resources than using concordant methods. Or, when two of the same electrical fields interact they might cancel each other out. Or, we could work out in the gym to build muscle for 5 hours a day, but will be paying with other Potentials that may contribute to ill health. Ideally, any aspect of one side is paired with an aspect on the other side for balanced, eficient, and optimal results (around 1.61). When two illusions on the same side are paired together you get imbalance, poor performance, disease, ineficiency, etc. For example, cold isn't good for muscle performance because the two are diferent interpretations of the same thing, but heat balances out muscles in a more harmonious way. However, the body becomes cold to assist in melatonin production before sleep and stimulate other processes. Cold air is dense, and warm air is not. Disease is subjective, and health can increase capacity. Chaos implodes, and we get the universe. Further, each of these illusions is just that â€“ an illusion. They are not absolute. You can never have 'absolute male' or 'absolute heat'. The interaction between two illusions forms a representation. From the Tao Te Ching: When people see some things as beautiful, other things become ugly. When people see some things as good, other things become bad. Being and non-being create each other. Dificult and easy support each other. Long and short define each other. High and low depend on each other. Before and afer follow each other. 1.07
Energy is Informuation About Spuace uand Time (uand Perspective)
The order of the three cycles of primate DNA also make other sub-processes more eficient, such as the three stages of the polymerase chain reaction, the three stages of the cell cycle, and forming codon bases. (The four-leter 'alphabet' of A, T, G and C form 'words' of threeleters codons. Each of the three cycles 'types' out one leter to code a complete codon base, like an amino acid.) The minor phases of the grid also act as grooves to hold water molecules, which helps stabilize the DNA helix (except in low-humidity conditions). 1.07 DNA is like a blueprint, or long-term memory, that is negatively charged. As in any system, however, there are both positive and negative sub-processes at work. It can pick up any signal from the local environment (everything from food and water to living conditions to your own thoughts) which serve as information about interactions. The resulting energy can then turn on/of (atract/repel) regulatory proteins. 1.11
The Wuay of Logiua
Logia can be thought of as the next stage of human evolution.
prime numbers by â€œ123â€? also produces a patern.
The Reuality of the Illusion
The most logical thing is that which applies to everything. Thus, Nothing is most logical. But how is it that the primary relationships afer Nothing are logical when they are defined as having 'too much expansion' and 'too much contraction' as compared with later relationships, which express seem to express phi more closely? It is because they can apply to everything, express the limits of both Nothing and Something, have the most eficient interactions through the most eficient representations, and inherently allow for more complexities within those limits. 1.15
The Purpose of Perspective
Reality's logical narrative is the backbone that our entire existence rests on: the geometry of motion. It is the way in which nothing-in-particular makes sense to us. The act of perception could be more appropriately termed â€œpatern-makingâ€?, building a logical narrative out of chaotic stimuli. We build identities that relate to paterns and find comfort in what we seem to have discovered. We look at randomness and automatically find order, though order is not inherent in randomness but is inherent in perspective. We break down chaos with order and perspective is born. We search the chaos of Nothing for paterns where none exist to give meaning to our perspective and, by extension, our lives. The paterns that we find have no reality whatsoever outside of our perspective. Although they're paterns that we just make up, they mean everything to us. We become very atached to them, and rightfully so. They are how we exist. Everything that exists fits into the logical narrative of Nothing, then fits into more complex narratives from there. Further, we form representations of all the most complex logical systems in our perspective. Instead of having to perceive (and interact with) countless systems of chemicallike electromagnetism we perceive of other humans that have a clear physical form, a much more simple (and eficient) interpretation. Instead of having to experience the nuances of relationships of a group of atoms entering someone's body we simply see them geting sick or feeling energized. Rather than having to calculate the involved harmonic relationships in the part of our perspective we call physicality, one need only experience walking down the street. 82
We represent everything in perspective. Everything we sense, think, feel, etc., is itself a story that makes sense of something more complex, and we give it life with more simple representations. A thing is but a lifeless abstraction that comes alive when it relates to another. A smile is a wonderfully simple representation of more complex feelings that do not even know what a smile is. 2.02
Whuat Is Huappiness?
The feeling of happiness is the opposite of being 'one' with the universe. If we are 'one' with the universe there is nothing else with which to compare, so we do not exist. To be nothingin-particular and connect with nothing, having no relationship and unable to experience harmony because of the lack of relationships with 'other', is frightening. We naturally avoid this emptiness in our perspective, creating endless illusions out of thin air in order to avoid this fate. 2.10
The SPPIs Within Us
Many corporations, for example, seem to exist for the sole purpose of competing to stay in business and provide executives with busy-ness, no mater how meaningless the overall afair is. Other businesses may fill a trivial need with a line of relatively meaningless products and services that serve no other purpose than to keep the company in business. Ofen, those subscribed to a system will begin to see their reality through the lens of the system. Operating by natural systems ourselves, we cannot interact with any system without adopting some of its perspective. And although we can find utility in each of these systems we should not forget that, as we interact with them, we are also integrating our own perspective with it. For example, the more we interact with traditional, formal education (or those who have been so educated) the more imbalanced our own perspective becomes until we find ourselves overly confident in the supposed truth of what we have learned. It must be noted that any system conforms to the SPPI model on some level. These systems will afect limitations in other, unintended ways, usually with the stakeholders involved. Many aspects of environmental 'preservation' promote ill-health in humans 24 and lead companies to increase prices unnecessarily, for example. An ever-expanding economy comes with increased consumer debt. University tuition prices rise without end, discouraging students from pursuing an education. The more laws there are the more people are found to be breaking the law. Endless news is being shared where there is none, focusing on irrelevant happenings and creating a false sense of importance and priority. A myriad of recipes means that you will ofen have no idea what you're eating, which may afect health. The list goes on. Without a logical system at its base or a strong enough natural limitation a system will sufer from an endless variety of logical fallacies and likely evolve diferently from what was intended and also afect other systems in unintended ways. But this isn't an argument against these types of systems. We all enjoy things like music, food, and the by-products of scientific discoveries among other wonderful things. We can, however, learn to build systems that have its own opposition built in to discover healthier types of systems that are more natural. Some of us realize that allowing for sadness can lead to a more healthy psychological and emotional state rather than pretending that everything is just fine. An educational system that has 'known/unknown' at its base might allow students to discover for themselves, becoming instead a way to facilitate the pursuit of learning rather than a system of indoctrination. A governmental system that had 'authority/non-authority' at its base might build cities and sections of cities where innovation, experimentation, and personal freedom can thrive, or cancel out a percentage of existing laws every year. 24 Such as the toxins in energy-saving light bulbs that leak out when heated, which are not in incandescent bulbs.
We have circular SPPIs at the core of our civilization, ingrained in its every gear. Natural SPPIs seem almost counter-intuitive, as if they were not compatible with ego. Can you imagine a national holiday for sadness where we were encouraged to cry over something? A company saying that it wants to reduce prices to benefit consumers because its profit margins are too high? A news program saying there is not much to report today, so they will lead with something happy, or just play music and dance? A team of scientists saying that they made too many assumptions over the past 10 years and will need to start over? Or environmentalists proclaiming that we should follow nature's example and allow some species to expire, naturally? It is silly to consider these things precisely because circular SPPIs are so ingrained in how we think, but even more silly to formulate systems with endless chaos at their core. These systems seek to nurture infinity in a way that allows for limitless expansion like a rising sea without boundaries. Instead, an endless parade of logical fallacies such as argument from authority and confirmation bias25 are found in its wake. These systems typically promote the interpretation of ambiguous information as supporting its existing structure while ignoring other information that challenges its fundamental assumptions, unless that information poses a direct threat to its survival. Each system develops a logic that is apparent to its proponents. A test to see how rigid the beliefs are for any system is to see how it works with contradicting or opposing information. Does it recognize that there are other equally valid realities? If the system does not operate by confirmation bias there will be no need to confirm or disprove new information that has revealed itself. In order for the integrity of the logical narrative to be sustained, circular SPPI systems ignore and reject information that does not conform to that already in place. Without confirmation bias, we do not perceive of reality. As humans, we need such systems in order to live and perceive as humans. However, we should be aware where we are subscribed to a belief system that may inhibit our movement and interaction, or shield us from new information in the pursuit of an infinity that does not exist. As we pursue circular SPPIs we will explore a system's seemingly limitless possibilities. We must assume that if a system is designed to be unlimited then it will eventually try to pursue the capacity for which is was intended, and even beyond what it was intended for. We focus on the normality of the present reality rather than the unlimited nature of the system itself. Surveillance starts on Thursdays between 5 and 6 in the afernoon and proceeds over time to encompass all 168 hours of the week. Conditional rules will eventually try to flow to unconditional rules, and vice versa. A website selling a single broken laser pointer will explore its endless capacity for person-to-person transactions and may eventually become a telecommunications provider. A search engine will try to explore the endless applications of its algorithm. A political ideology with the capacity to change how people live and work will eventually seek out totalitarianism. At each stage the system integrates its constituents as part of its logical narrative. Frogs don't mind being boiled if each gradual increase in temperature makes sense from the last. Each change will appear to be logical in the system at that time, even if the system itself is based on logical fallacies. 3.01
The Greuatest Trick
Though there are many logical conjectures in quantum physics, quantum physics itself is based on a logical fallacy. Much of quantum physics can actually be explained mechanically. For example, it is overlooked that red photons are larger than blue photons so will have larger electromagnetic fields. The importance of the double-slit experiment to establish the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanical phenomena uses only monochromatic light. 25 Science, economics, education, media, medicine, corporations, and others are especially prone to the â€œargument from authorityâ€? fallacy.
Using a light with more than one color the experiment will break down, because the efect depends entirely on the wavelength of the photon. Photons of diferent color wavelengths will have diferent paterns through the slit. A red photon will be larger than a blue photon, and so will its magnetic field. Photons passing over an object will bend from the interaction of the magnetic fields. A small enough slit will produce the paterns seen in the experiment but a large slit will not, as the photon's magnetic field will not interfere with the slit. When the photon passes through a slit with two sides some photons will bend in one direction and some will bend in an other direction. This efect is light difraction, but because two slits are being used the difraction will form an interference patern. â€œWhat we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioningâ€? Heisenberg 3.02
The Logic of E=MC2
We can observe the contracting of space in a photon. As information about a photon of light exits a medium it is observed to be 'pushed' as it leaves. This efect is space being ordered, contracting via spacetime. Through a medium, space needs to contract more in order to maintain its integrity relative to its logical narrative, as the density of the medium does not allow space to contract in the same way as it did outside of the medium. As it exits it is still contracting itself as it had been in the medium and again adjusts its contractions to the environment. We can observe this repulsion/atraction efect as it repels itself away from one aspect of its perspective to another, expanding and contracting information at the same time. 3.02 Perhaps a more accurate measurement would be 299,261 km/s, as true vacuums do not exist (as it would also need to disallow perception and instruments to measure it). The measurement of light in a vacuum would only be relevant if the Sun did not contain 99.85% of the solar system's mass and the mass was spread uniformly throughout the solar system. Like anything else, light must always travel through a medium and cannot travel in a vacuum. 3.02 We can also use this information to determine that there are 17 layers of the solar system, the size of each layer, the charge of each layer, and so on. And inside of the sun's core is another set of 17 layers (that resist the 17 of the solar system). The edge of this inner solar system has a value of 149,896 km/s, which is the interface layer with our own. 3.02 The solar system is only 20 years old, as our Sun takes about 225 million years to complete one orbit around its galactic center (one Solar year). Our galaxy is moving at about 2,100,000 kilometers per hour through whatever system it's in, if we consider cosmic background radiation to be a kind of local frame of reference. If you stand completely still for one minute, you've still moved more than 35,000 kilometers through space. That's just the speed of our galaxy as it makes its way around the galactic center and does not include Earth's rotation speed (1,600 km/hour at the equator), Earth's revolution around the sun (about 107,000 km/hour), and the sun's orbit in the galaxy (792,000 km/hour), and who knows what else. The sun carries the Earth with it around the galaxy, which itself is carried around other things in space. We are born and live all our lives in the rotation of the earth so we do not feel this acceleration. But it's safe to say that the Earth has never been in the same space twice. Space and time need all the information they can get. 3.02 There is no need for multiple axes of space when time already performs that function with regards to space. 85
The Chuaonic Field
The RF and IF fields emerge from the same core:
The Relative Field The Relative Field (RF) has the force of 'Order' at its foundation. This field organizes relationships and is the basis for relationships in spacetime. It corresponds to the prime number part of perspective â€“ 011235 â€“ and is an aspect of time. 86
As there are four states of mater for each of the three elements needed to form a relationship (Structure, Potential, and Interaction), and two potentials for each state (Chaos Potential and Order Potential), we end up with 24 phases. Every third phase is a major phase, and every fourth major or sub-major phase is a fundamental phase. These phases are organized like the hours of the day, with 24 phases surrounding a center hub. Each of the twenty-four phases forms a cycle which, in turn, is part of a larger cycle that consists of three phases. This allows every phase to perform either a minor, sub-major, or major role, depending on the cycle.26 The three cycles will form a double toroidal vortex when brought to life by the Interactive Filed (IF). As the RF represents relationships, inter-phase paterns will form. For example, prime numbers distribute in the minor phases that surround major and fundamental phases. Elements in the periodic table are also arranged according to this cycle. The major and fundamental phases correspond to the four states of mater:
In any system, the fundamental phases are the most extreme. As extreme chaos is balanced by extreme order, the fundamental phases are the origin of all of the other phases. There are two fundamental phases. The following is an example of the RF's fundamental phases as related to the Earth (and Sun). The fundamental phases can be thought of as extreme positive and negative potentials in the process of harmonizing.
26 You can think of each phase as being an hour of the day, with a shif every three hours and a bigger shif every six hours. The day is divided into negative (night) and positive (day), which is an illustration of the fundamental force.
[Note: The above example illustrates a non-random, continuous probability distribution of positive and negative states. The side of the Earth that the sun faces at a particular time would be a net-positive potential with the other side being a net-negative potential.] There is no such thing as a point charge that is entirely negative or positive. What is measured is the net charge, which is made up of sub-charges of positive and negative. The Earth, for example, will be net negative, as it balances out the net positives surrounding it. If the RF reminds you of the electric field in an isolated charge to you, that's because it is.
[It is important to note that this 2D grid represents 3D axes. A particle rotating at its major phase from top to botom, for example, would be spinning on its axis and have a net negative charge.] It is interesting to note that a religious symbol, the monstrance, has a similar depiction of fundamental, major, and sub-major phases, symbolized by a cross and its emanations. The Jewish cross also has a similar arrangement.
We could conjecture that the saying, “Jesus died on the cross,” is an allegory to represent the end of the 24-phase cycle, afer which the process begins again afer a “resurrection afer 3 days” at the end of the three phases, or 72 hours. Being 'nailed' to the cross could represent a lack of movement with regards to the position of the hands (fundamental phases) and feet (major phase), as a total harmonic balance of forces is reached at the end of the cycle. There seem to be other correlations between the Jesus story and the chaos/order cycle, such as the 12 disciples (12 axes of rotation of the 24-phase cycle), many of the sayings (e.g., “...truth, light, and way” perhaps being symbolic of the nucleus, information, and path of the information; “Not through seeking will you find me [busyness and chaos], but through Peace [balance]”; “...I am the way, No one can go to the father except through me”; “I am the Door”) and various 'miracles' and events. 3.03
Distribution of the elements in the 24-phase cycle (RF).
3.03 Prime numbers are simply numbers that don't have any other numbers folded into it. Here is how they are distributed in the 24-phase cycle:
The fields can also be seen in music:
3.03 The Interactive Field (IF) has the force of 'Chaos' at its foundation. This field facilitates interactions and is the basis for interaction in spacetime. It corresponds to the recursive number sequence part of perspective – 011235. The IF could be pictured as a three-dimensional logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is a balance of positive and negative forces (ideally phi). Think of the IF as wavelength. [There's already too much chaos, so the IF will not be illustrated here, other than some parts of RF illustrations.] 3.04
Folding uand Unfolding
As an illustration of space expansion and time contraction, let's imagine you were a Flatlander of two dimensions and had 10 minutes to spend with a round apple, which changed into a juicy apple that you could spend another 10 minutes with. If you moved to three-dimensional space, space will contract as time will expand. Now you have 20 minutes to spend with a round and juicy apple, followed by 20 minutes to spend with a roten apple. And if you moved to four dimensions there will be more contraction of space and expansion of time so that you experience 40 minutes with a round, juicy, and roten apple all at the same time. A contraction of time doesn't mean that time doesn't exist. Although time is an illusion, we still experience it where perspective is concerned. If there is perspective there is movement and energy. If there is movement and energy, there is some aspect of time. It is for this reason there is a 'speed' of light. If you were to look out to the sun, for example, you would see the expansion of space. This would require time to contract, so you would experience “two times” at once – the first being your present time and the second being 8 minutes ago. There is really only one time, but the force of chaos divides it into a seemingly endless degree of spaces. 3.04 This method of folding and unfolding is also used in modern computers for arithmetic and is an ancient method of counting cofee beans still in use in Kenya today. 3.05
Photons are just as abstract as the interactions they represent. The things they represents are also representations.
3.05 This energy communication might be interpreted as 'gravity' when it is just charges communicating. This interpretation is influenced by the radius of the Chaonic Field and the direction of charges. The information that we call gravity changes as the radius of the field does. 3.05 A flower does not smell as a nose does because it would not be eficient for it to do so. It would take far too much information for the collection of atoms and molecules that we call a 'flower' to smell like a nose. When is a nose not a nose? When it is no longer eficient for the atoms and molecules to maintain balance with the geometry and motion that leads you to interpret it as a 'nose'. The particles that make up your body can be anything in the universe. But right now they are most eficiently your body. Our interpretations of reality also follow this patern. Any person, place, thing, event, etc., is most eficiently whatever it is interpreted to be right now. Our interpretations are complex relationships that confuse us into solidifying their reality as we interact. Ours is the perspective that requires the least number of other interactions to be. We pick out paterns to make sense of reality where no paterns really exist. Those paterns then become an aspect of our reality, allowing us to build the logical narrative of our lives. You're born, you grow up, you go to school, you work, you die â€“ and everything in between. Without the ability to illustrate the narrative by puting some relationships before others, much of the meaning is removed. Spacetime helps us to relate with others in manageable chunks. 3.06
Muass uand Being
A note about scalar and vector units. Scalar units measure magnitude on a scale (such as mass or time). Vector units take magnitude and add direction. In QMe, however, vector units are a kind of added dimension of scalar units. They are scalar units in motion. Scalar units express the magnitude of relationships in units, while vector units is magnitude set into motion.
To illustrate how a unit could have a dual nature, imagine a person that is tall and a pedestrian at the same time. In some aspects of perspective, a person cannot be experienced as a pedestrian while being tall at the same time (e.g., Carl Sagan's 'flatland'). How we are measuring something is an important consideration when measuring anything, like a photon.
Velocity uand Motion
Time appears to move forward because we are 'pointing our poles' of perspective towards the direction of interaction in our wakeful state, so to speak. If we were pointing them backward towards relationships as we do while we're sleeping (and had always been doing so) we
probably wouldn't know the diference. 3.07 For a more accurate depiction of the orbit of planets in our solar system see htps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwaTzpNo4BA 3.09
Modern Science, Arguuable, Huas Un-scientific Founduations
Chaotic systems based on authority and legacy tend to sufer from the argument from authority and sunk cost biases. We assume that the technological and scientific progress made over the past few hundred years could have not been far exceeded with a diferent kind of approach to science. We haven't experienced an alternative, so we have had nothing to compare our progress to. This is not an argument against science, however. Qite the contrary, an argument for the scientific method to be applied to where it will have greatest efect. If we, for example, were to make science more objective at points of interaction (publishing, funding, and peer review) how would it be diferent from today's environment? That science research cannot be published objectively should demonstrate one of the ways we could begin applying the scientific method to science. If a scientist is bribed or pressured (via funding and de-funding) to subscribe to and promote a certain logical narrative and ignore others, it would be folly to say that research is being done objectively. A researcher that depends on grants and funding from any outside organization will likely be influenced by the needs, opinions, policies, and other influences of that organization, rendering their eforts subjective. Another researcher may not even begin to pursue a hypothesis that may possibly find others in strong disagreement. Further, if the impetus is subjective, the research will not be objective. Subjectivity makes most, if not all, of the sciences a circular SPPI system that is beneficial to us in a certain kind of way that we've become accustomed to, but one where fundamental assumptions are not questioned, only one kind of understanding is presumed to exist, and the logical narrative is emotionally and vehemently defended. How can we pursue parallel universes in spacetime while at the same time waste time arguing against parallel theories? How can anyone insist that 10-dimensional worlds exist while ignoring the other 9 dimensions of a particular argument? If we were to apply the scientific method to science itself, what illusions would we uncover? What logical fallacies would unveil themselves, such as thinking that if we don't know how to measure something (e.g., consciousness) then it is unmeasurable? Thinking, perhaps, that if we cannot imagine something and don't know anyone else who can, then it must be impossible? Rather than destroying our current method of scientific reasoning we can, instead, learn to balance the equation with a more harmonic relationship that takes into consideration the necessity of opposing forces to hold up a solid foundation, much like the Ancient Greeks and Romans did when building structures that can outlast most any we build today using brute force. Instead of approaching these big, ancient questions about the universe with a small, crumbling handful of logical fallacies in tow let us begin to observe from the origin of perspective. --If you like this book please rate it on Amazon at htps://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FB6ML0O Thank you!
