Excellent!!... this easy examines perception as "a mode of thinking;"... i.e. "it is not The Truth"... advances perceptual revisions that are consistent with a non-perturbative analysis of space-Time emergence, and demonstrates application of revised perception to elevate the human condition.
"All of our research is “within” the universe. It is not even meaningful to talk about anything outside of the universe because there is no outside to even talk about. "
"Universe" must be defined before "outside the universe" has any meaning.
"I believe it was Feynman who said that when you ask why something happened, it has to be in some framework that allows something to be true."
"Universe" as a framework/structure must allow observations assigned to "universe"... e.g. existence of knowable and unknowable processes... to be true.
IF "universe" is defined as all that is, THEN there can be no "outside"... but there can be differentiable Logic Domains within the whole, and to differentiate a Space-Time Logic Domain, from a Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain that projects the Space-Time Logic Domain, eliminates the question of "How did the universe arise?"... i.e. a temporal differentiation of "begin" and/or "end" does not apply to a Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain.
In that substance dynamics infer spatial and temporal differentiation, a Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain cannot facilitate observed substance dynamics, but this does not prohibit a Spaceless-Timeless Energy component of the universe, to provide an unlimited source of substance to facilitate Space-Time Energy dynamics, as perceived by a Space-Time Logic Domain observer.
To establish a framework in which observed Space-Time Energy dynamics are a manifestation of a Spaceless-Timeless Energy component of the universe, requires objectification of the fundamental elements of emergence... i.e. momentum mechanism, unit of substance, and a distribution structure.
To facilitate observer intelligence within a Space-Time Logic Domain as a consequence of emergence, requires the framework facilitate a non-perturbative emission analysis environment as a substance distribution structure.
Although my 2023FQXi Essay: "Digital Science: Emergence of Quantum Consciousness" (http://uqsmatrixmechanix.com/2023FQXiEssay4pdfconv.php) was intended as a demonstration of how a non-perturbative analysis structure would change science, the demonstration objectified a momentum mechanism as a single point pulse sourced emission of substance, as spatially defined minimum/indivisible quanta of Energy (QE), which inherently resolves all forces as derived of a single force, and consequently FQXi rejected my essay as being an ""alternative ""theory of everything"", not an essay about how science could be different."
IF all knowledge is encoded as a consequence of emergence from a Fact, a non-perturbative environment is inherent, and IF one knows the structural geometry of that environment, one can resolve an unbroken kinematic logic chain between Fact and observed manifestation of Fact.
In a framework that allows an emerging intelligent network to be true, perception is volatile software... i.e. a digitally coded application that can be revised to facilitate application of Q-functions which are revealed by CAD-SIM visual analysis of Space-Time Energy emergence, within a non-perturbatve Space-Time framework.
To aide conceptualization of entity differentiation within a homogeneous construct... i.e. comprised of unified minimum/indivisible units of substance (QE)... I have, in a manner inspired by Feynman diagrams, incorporated geometry elements of the UQS non-perturbative CAD environment, as visual icons of Logic Components, with which to construct QE spacial occupancy configurations as differentiable entities.
REF: Illustration #1 (http://uqsmatrixmechanix.com/2023FQXiEssay4pdfconv.php)
Emergent manifest configurations of Logic Components, differentiate entities as function specific logic circuits... e.g. the configuration of their respective visual icons/diagrams represents a distinction between "mind" and "brain" logic functions.
A universe defined as a composite of Spaceless-Timeless Energy, and the Space-Time Energy manifestations of Spaceless-Timeless Energy, infers nature as a consequence of the fundamental process by which all forms of Space-Time Energy are made manifest... i.e. nature is a result not a function, a product not a process.
The "... strong correspondence we observe between mathematics and the physical universe." is a consequence of the Q- mechanix of Space-Time Energy emergence.
In that on each Q-Tick of the pulsed momentum mechanism, distribution of QE as spatially defined minimum/individual units of Energy must be resolved, within minimum/indivisible quantization units (QI) of a spatial geometry environment, utilizing logic inferred from prior Q-Tick distribution resolve, mathematics inherently emerges, and nature as a product of fundamental process, is neither random nor determinate... i.e. definitely no "accident".
Having defined "universe" as a composite of a Spaceless-Timeless Domain, and a Space-Time Domain as its projection, the purpose... i.e. "teleology"... of the "universe", is observationally Spontaneous Harmonious Resolve (SHR) of Spaceless-Timeless Energy as Space-Time Energy, and although the "fundamental constants we observe", reflect the mechanix employed to achieve SHR, they should not be construed as limits on SHR.
The function of discrete entities as logic circuits, inclusive of humankind, embedded in Space-Time as a consequence of emergence, is to monitor and implement efficient digital processing as necessary to achieve SHR... i.e. human "teleology" can be viewed as an element of universal intelligence utilized by the the Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain. to FEEL Space-Time QE/QI distribution Spontaneous Harmoniously Resolve, on every Q-Tick.
Although an individual humankind logic circuit may currently perceive, as "... fact, that all of our pursuits of knowledge preclude the possibility of discerning absolute truth.", and the "truth" may be that there is a Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain.. i.e. an unknowable... component of the universe... one is NOT justified in making application of Factless abstractions to an investigation of a Space-Time emergence.
A non-perturbative analysis environment facilitates a mental framework in which a SOUrceLink (SOUL) can be True, and IF one pursues a non-perturbative analysis of Space-Time Energy emergence, a code upgrade to the logic utilized by the individual perception app is assimilated, making it difficult to deny/evade individual responsibility for accessing Cosmic Intelligence through the "I Am" SOUrceLink (SOUL), and verifying that one's perceived "teleology" is in accord with "universal teleology".
"History and science demonstrate there is an inherent fundamental drive in nature, be it animate or inanimate, toward destruction. The thermodynamic law of entropy for example indicates that everything goes from order to disorder."
Emergent logic... e g. inference... is not necessarily compliant with the laws of thermodynamics, which were abstracted without benefit of a framework that allows an intelligent universe to be true.
To distinguish between "alter" and "destroy" is a perceptual call, and although revision of the code utilized by perception, will "alter" perception, it will not undermine its function as an app to expedite monitoring requirements of humankind "teleology".
"... our history reflects the projections of an ontological fear in mind, caused by dissociation, leaving our mind in a very fear-prone condition."
Even IF the framework requires one to acknowledge existence of an "unknowable" component of the universe, IF an upgrade allows access by the individual to Cosmic Consciousness, to be "true", the fear, which underlies all aggression, can be resolved,
"Knowledge" is derived from a framework that facilitates Fact, and without an ontological Fact, Science and Religion teeter on unstable foundations
RE:2024:FQXi Essay "Science & The Unknowable" (https://s3.amazonaws.com/fqxi.data/data/essay-contest-files/16/essay_id_2267.pdf)
In that Science and Religion have become polarized, advocates of each promote, aggressively at times, adherence to their brand of Factless abstractions... i.e. dogma... and "fear" profits polarization, a framework in which individual entity access to the Cosmic Consciousness is inherent in humans, may meet with resistance.
IF "the brain, in principle, cannot answer ontological questions about the universe because it is part of the universe.", AND IF one defines universe as "all", THEN there is no logic framework in which any "other possible perspectives" could be true.
IF a perceived inability of the "brain" to resolve universal ontology is attributed to its logic circuit's lack of a SOUrceLink, that does not prohibit potential for a SOUrceLinked logic circuit... e g. the "mind"... to do so
IF a "unified state of mind" is in reference to the universe as a composite of a Spaceless-Timeless Logic Domain and a Space-Time Logic Domain, a Space-Time Logic Domain observer utilizing a perceptual framework in which "an observer that is part of the universe being observed" can NOT be true, will perceive self as "a split off aspect of the unified mind".
IF Spaceless-Timeless Energy is the pulsed sourced substance (QE) of Space-Time ontology, THEN the Space-Time Logic Domain, is still associated with the "unified state of mind", facilitating a logic framework in which the "split off aspect" has access to universal intelligence, can be "true".
All entities... e.g. mind.... are comprised of substance, as the element that experiences pulse sourced dynamics, and structure as the framework that allows intelligence to be derived from the dynamics of resolve of substance within the structure.
Within the UQS frameworked emergence, the Q-Mechanix of Space-Time Energy entity access... i.e. SOUrceLink (SOUL)... to and from the Spaceless-Timeless Source, emerges on Pulse-8- Open (P-8-O), as graphically illustrated in: Digital Science: Emergence of Quantum Consciousness (http://uqsmatrixmechanix.com/2023FQXiEssay4pdfconv.php)
Utilizing the Logic Component Icons/Diagrams in illustration #1, as logic/function building blocks of a Space-Time emergence, on P-8-O the initial Space-Time Inertia entity emerges, and QE input from an internal entity SOUrceLink is required to Spontaneously, Harmoniously Resolve (SHR) Next... i.e. to sustain the emergence.
As necessitated to SHR QE distribution on any subsequent Q-Tick, all prior emergent logic functions, inclusive of a SOUrceLink (SOUL), are available, and a Space-Time Energy entity source access hierarchy emerges to resolve a child's question: "Why do all my atoms fall with me?".
As a manifest logic circuit, the human "observer" is functionally responsible for opening the SOUrceLink (SOUL) at center of the "mind"... i.e. differentiated from "brain"... and the illustrations are intended as visual assistance for self-experiment.
Personal experience is not scientific method compliant... i.e. conditionals of a personal experience, may not be verifiably maintained to satisfy requirement for repeatability... but that does not invalidate knowledge derived from personal experience.
"Opening a new portal to the universe", can be achieved by installing an upgrade to the individual perception app, and "the world will still appear to obey the same physical laws that apply today...", but an unbroken kinematic logic chain from/to observation from/to Source will facilitate enhanced understanding of "physical laws".
One should research, and experimentally query the universal network, THEN IF the upgraded functionality apparently will facilitate resolve of limitations one's current understanding of "physical laws" places on the individual, CLICK INSTALL!!
Note: I do not know if un-install is possible?... i.e. I have never needed to do so.
Thank you for sharing the insights you have attained through application of a perceptual framework, that allows individual access to the "unified mind", to be true.
