The Pond

Imagine a small pond with a boat in the center and you standing almost knee deep in the water need the shore.

The pond is completely still and you have your eyes closed.

Imagine the boat moving and the ripples that are sent out in all directions, if you could pay attention close enough you would be able to know when the boat is moving at you and away from you by the frequency and force of which the waves cresting on the shore are impacting your legs

You could know this without visually seeing or hearing the boat move.

That wave contains enough information, combined with your sensory information and processed through your brain for you to know this event is happening.

Each of your senses can do this individually and in conjunction with the others.

They all use the information received, delivered via a wave, to not only navigate but shape our realities.

This text is an exploration of this simple, but exceptionally ingrained concept as it relates to perception, time, the human consciousness, and the fabric of reality itself.

A Final Thought

The Theory of Information

The Theory of Information is the idea that information, a 4-dimensional sphere/4d field, exists as a fundamental piece of existence and is the driver of not just our reality, but also governs our interactions and perceptions at a fundamental level connecting all things innately and intrinsically.

Postulates

Information is a 4-dimensional object( a 4d sphere)/field that encompasses the entire 3-dimensional plane that we exist on. If we think of information as a wave the collapse of its waveform would be the point of our reality.

This is a depiction of a 4d cube, a tesseract. The collapse of the information wave would be constantly converging into a point that we call reality and all of the information from that point would flow back into this cyclical system.

The Riemann Hypothesis Visualized through analytic continuation and graphed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD0NjbwqlYw

I feel as this is a fundamental piece to mathematically describing Information. There are many fascinating takeaways and applications (especially in quantum mechanics) which can be found in the links below.. My intuition is leaning to a 3rd plane that would encode all of the details to describe this, similar to how we can draw a cube in 2 dimensions - it contains all of the information for us infer its 3rd dimension, but continuing on with this visualization:

When you visualize the non-trivial 0’s of the zeta function and use analytic continuation a pattern emerges

Interestingly it looks very similar to a glome, or 4d sphere, it looks like the above with an added 3rdplane. Perhaps a beautiful solution to the theorem relates directly.

:

Just as a stereographic projection can project a sphere's surface to a plane, it can also project the surface of a 4-sphere into 3-space. This image shows three coordinate directions projected to 3-space: parallels (red), meridians (blue) and hypermeridians (green). Due to the conformal property of the stereographic projection, the curves intersect each other orthogonally (in the yellow points) as in 4D. All of the curves are circles: the curves that intersect ⟨0,0,0,1⟩ have an infinite radius (= straight line).

The Nature Of Reality

Reality is a phenomenon that is tangible to us in every sense but is dynamic and fluid. We perceive our reality from the interpretation of our senses. This sensory information takes time to process in our brain and create what we perceive in real-time.

As we have explored our existence we have begun to realize that our perception of reality is rather limited. Through study in Physics and chemistry, we have defined our world in entirely different terms. We can break down the world into particulates that we can’t see and throughout years we have derived ways to test these observations and find consistency in the results that suggest we are onto something.

Yet the more that we discover and the deeper we can peer it seems while we’re on to something our grasp on the larger picture still remains elusive, but maybe it doesn’t have to be.

The unknown has historically always been labeled as mystical.

It would stand to reason that the way in which our reality operates is not, in fact, some complex and unfathomable system, but something more simple expanded into complexity.

Throughout existence, we observe cycles, simplicity, complexity, and those intersections of the three. When viewed through one perspective a system can appear exceptionally complex, yet ends up simple in essence once the fundamental aspects of the system are understood. Our entire existence is governed by the balance of various systems mainly our surrounding ecosystems and our internal biological systems. These systems can seem and are incredibly complex when viewed from a whole, but as we explore their constituent parts we begin to see that the mechanisms that drive these systems are understandable and relatively simple in comparison.

Following that consistent logic, it would stand to reason that while our existence seems intricately complex we have the capability to quantify and understand the building blocks which create that reality.

Fluid Mechanics

Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics concerned with the mechanics of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them. It has applications in a wide range of disciplines, including mechanical, civil, chemical and biomedical engineering, geophysics, astrophysics, and biology. It can be divided into fluid statics, the study of fluids at rest; and fluid dynamics, the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion. It is a branch of continuum mechanics, a subject which models matter without using the information that it is made out of atoms; that is, it models matter from a macroscopic viewpoint rather than from microscopic.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluid_mechanics

We’re familiar with fluid dynamics at a visceral level and combined with some other tools it is a great way to describe motion and information as fluidic systems are dynamic and in constant motion. It also serves as an interesting guidepost. Showing us an effect that we can detect with our senses and something that seems to be fundamental to reality itself - the wave.

The wave that approaches us in the pond is one of many, each one containing mostly the same information as the first one, but with a few adjustments as the boat moves so does the wave slightly change. By monitoring the change in the wave we can begin to take meaningful measurements about the boat deducing its velocity and direction.

However, it's not just the wave at the water level in the pond but waves in the air as well that we could be detecting. Photons hitting our retina are related to this phenomena as well. So in essence fluid mechanics describes much about our experience and has allusions to our very existence which will be a consistent theme throughout this document.  

Phase Shift

Phase is the position of a point in time (an instant) on a waveform cycle. A complete cycle is defined as the interval required for the waveform to return to its arbitrary initial value. The graph to the right shows how one cycle constitutes 360° of phase. The graph also shows how phase is sometimes expressed in radians, where one radian of phase equals approximately 57.3°.

Phase can also be an expression of relative displacement between two corresponding features (for example, peaks or zero crossings) of two waveforms having the same frequency.[1]

In sinusoidal functions or in waves, "phase" has two different, but closely related, meanings. One is the initial angle of a sinusoidal function at its origin and is sometimes called phase offset or phase difference. Another usage is the fraction of the wave cycle that has elapsed relative to the origin

Phase shift is any change that occurs in the phase of one quantity, or in the phase difference between two or more quantities.

This symbol: φ {\displaystyle \varphi } \varphi is sometimes referred to as a phase shift or phase offset because it represents a "shift" from zero phase.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase_(waves)#Phase_shift

A phase shift occurs at many levels just as waves can be found at all levels their complex cousin's cycles become even more apparent to us as humans and scientists viewing the various systems of life They occur around points of convergence

In our thought experiment, this occurs twice.

The first is at the moment the boat begins to move.

The second is when the wave generated from the boat impacts your leg

This cycle is repeated as the boat moves

From studying where the wave impacts you and how it changes we could begin to deduce information about you and your distance to the boat

It is the motion of the boat in the system that causes the ripples(waves)((information)) and it is the measurement of the system (your leg) that provides the frame of reference.

Systems

Studying systems happens throughout many disciplines of science. Systems also ended up defining the way that we categorize and quantify information as we have flown into the digital age.

I believe this process we have developed as a race is actually a reflection of reality. Indeed we can cite the various conscious inspirations from nature that various creators, engineers, thinkers, artists, musicians, and more have experienced, and made visceral through their expression.

Our digital age seems to adhere most closely to this.

In computer science when we build programs that run our world we use programming languages which are a way to communicate our intentions into a series of 1’s and 0’s which are processed through a silicon chip which responds to our query changing a series of 1’s and 0’s through layers of instruction to translate the response into something that we can cognitively interact with.

Mimicry is the greatest form of flattery.

Information is what flows between these processes in these systems. Much like you standing on the shore and the water moving as a wave is translated to information that your mind understands through your senses which themselves are translated into electrical signals that travel to your brain which then creates your perception - your reality.

Systems described this way are a way for information to flow combining various constituent parts to create a great whole.

E.g The Ecosystem is a confluence of a variety of factors that scale up and down to encompass more or less of the system which itself can be viewed as a system of systems.

Information is potentially the foundational system that gives rise to all other systems.

Time

Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future. is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or in the conscious experience.Time is often referred to as a fourth dimension, along with three spatial dimensions.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time

Time is an interesting concept to us as humans, we clearly see the effects of its passage and can articulate cycles which make sense in that view, but what is time?

In our pond lets imagine it is entirely self-contained in its own universe. The moment this universe pops into existence (we’ll skip the billions of years of evolution we took to get somewhere close to these conditions) everything is in motion, the atoms that make up the environment have already begun moving and it is that motion which ultimately forms the reference point for you to observe the motion of the boat through your senses. This constant motion fractally repeated throughout our entire self contained universe is producing an information pressure wave that gives us the perception of the arrow of time.

Evolution

Evolution is change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. These characteristics are the expressions of genes that are passed on from parent to offspring during reproduction. Different characteristics tend to exist within any given population as a result of mutation, genetic recombination and other sources of genetic variation. Evolution occurs when evolutionary processes such as natural selection (including sexual selection) and genetic drift act on this variation, resulting in certain characteristics becoming more common or rare within a population.[4] It is this process of evolution that has given rise to biodiversity at every level of biological organisation, including the levels of species, individual organisms and molecules.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution

While the above speaks to the evolution of biological systems there is also a more generalized view of evolution to describe the changes that occur throughout the various cycles of a system. Another way to view this is a constant dynamic state often expressed through cycles.

Biological Systems

A biological system is a complex network of biologically relevant entities.

Biological organization spans several scales. Examples of biological systems at the macro scale are populations of organisms. On the organ and tissue scale in mammals and other animals, examples include the circulatory system, the respiratory system, and the nervous system.
On the micro to the nanoscopic scale, examples of biological systems are cells, organelles, macromolecular complexes and regulatory pathways.
A biological system is not to be confused with a living system, such as a living organism.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biological_system

Genetics

Genetics is a branch of biology concerned with the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms.

Gregor Mendel, a scientist and Augustinian friar, discovered genetics in the late 19th-century. Mendel studied "trait inheritance", patterns in the way traits are handed down from parents to offspring. He observed that organisms (pea plants) inherit traits by way of discrete "units of inheritance". This term, still used today, is a somewhat ambiguous definition of what is referred to as a gene.

Trait inheritance and molecular inheritance mechanisms of genes are still primary principles of genetics in the 21st century, but modern genetics has expanded beyond inheritance to studying the function and behavior of genes. Gene structure and function, variation, and distribution are studied within the context of the cell, the organism (e.g. dominance), and within the context of a population. Genetics has given rise to a number of subfields, including epigenetics and population genetics. Organisms studied within the broad field span the domains of life (archaea, bacteria, and eukarya).

Genetic processes work in combination with an organism's environment and experiences to influence development and behavior, often referred to as nature versus nurture. The intracellular or extracellular environment of a cell or organism may switch gene transcription on or off. A classic example is two seeds of genetically identical corn, one placed in a temperate climate and one in an arid climate. While the average height of the two corn stalks may be genetically determined to be equal, the one in the arid climate only grows to half the height of the one in the temperate climate due to lack of water and nutrients in its environment.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetics

I’ve added genetics to observe and show how this theory plays out into the macro world. To map this to our example imagine that we’re thinking about our genetic expression. The movement of the boat is the nurture part of the expression with the environment, including you, as the nature side.  

The movement of the boat is a theoretically controllable aspect of this reality (but can also be propelled by something beyond our control as well). The waves are the reaction to those influences into the system and they interact throughout the system. Some subtle changes happen, but most remain the same. Fast forward our boat moving around and around and around for a long period of time and the entire shape of the pond would change, our position in the pond would be relatively different, and so while everything remains relatively the same there are clear changes that happen over longer and longer cycles.

Quantum Mechanics

Def: The branch of mechanics that deals with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles, incorporating the concepts of quantization of energy, wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, and the correspondence principle.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics

Quantum Mechanics takes the world we know in a viscerally binary way (0 or 1) and introduces the idea of probability (maybe 0, maybe 1, maybe both) As this applies to our physical reality it creates some very interesting phenomena that at first seem very counterintuitive to our current collective understanding of reality, but if we adjust our perspective a bit it does seem to make sense as we observe the natural world.

The pond also illustrates quantum principles that we can visualize and articulate to be more meaningful to our reality.

Wave/Particle Duality

Wave–particle duality is the concept in quantum mechanics that every particle or quantum entity may be partly described in terms not only of particles, but also of waves. It expresses the inability of the classical concepts "particle" or "wave" to fully describe the behavior of quantum-scale objects. As Albert Einstein wrote:

   It seems as though we must use sometimes the one theory and sometimes the other, while at times we may use either. We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave%E2%80%93particle_duality

This is one of the foundational experiments that birthed this idea. It shows us that we can describe our world in particles or waves and that they are one and the same. It shows us that the underlying mechanism of the systems that drive our existence are probabilistic and interconnected in the most fundamental way - That every system, every mechanism in those systems is a fractal relative to the way in which our existence unfolds.

Double Slit Experiment

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-slit_experiment

Entanglement

Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon which occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the state of the other(s), even when the particles are separated by a large distance—instead, a quantum state must be described for the system as a whole.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement

What sort of mechanism would enable entanglement? When distance and time seem so inextricably ingrained as part of reality how could they all of a sudden be trivial at a certain resolution of reality? Logically it would be because they are connected by something that defies our concept of distance and time which is derived from the speed of a photon.

What if the mechanism itself is the same but simply happens at a much faster rate?

But nothing can travel faster than the speed of light?

The Field of Information encompasses the entirety of existence. In essence, when something changes in the systems it is instantly reflected throughout the system. In terms of entanglement, two objects carry the exact same composition and orientation to the underlying field these entwined particles are a fractal extension of this mechanism. They become mirrors of one another because fundamentally they share the same exact informational state which as you add complexity becomes more difficult to maintain. Being a 4d object and encompassing the entirety of existence this process looks instantaneous to us, but likely follows the same mechanisms that are being discussed.  

Information & Quantumn Mechanics

What if what we recognize probability within quantum systems is actually a function of the coalescence of information? What if the tipping of the scale into the atomic world is, in fact, this information field reaching a point of criticality within a quantum system? This would use familiar and simple concepts to explain seemingly complex behavior and also would carry implications that would resonate throughout every aspect of existence.

Consciousness

Consciousness is the state or quality of awareness or of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. It has been defined variously in terms of sentience, awareness, qualia, subjectivity, the ability to experience or to feel, wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood or soul, the fact that there is something "that it is like" to "have" or "be" it, and the executive control system of the mind. Despite the difficulty in definition, many philosophers believe that there is a broadly shared underlying intuition about what consciousness is. As Max Velmans and Susan Schneider wrote in The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness: "Anything that we are aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives."

The discussion to define consciousness is one that exists far beyond this concept and will be a discussion for probably a long time yet to come, but the pieces of consciousness that we have begun to identify and quantify with the help of neuroscience carries interesting parallels and congruences when combined with this theory. It provides a very interesting array of mostly anecdotal evidence as well as correlates with results from fascinating experiments.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consciousness

What is a thought? One view is that it is a complex system that relies most immediately on sensory and memory information with its foundations being shaped via the underlying genetics of the person.

Expanding this view into our pond we can frame this at multiple levels.

The Thought:

When we have a thought (and when we don’t) specific neurons in our brains are firing in specific sequences. This constant process creates the foundation for consciousness which one way we can measure is via brain waves. Through research we’ve identified different types of waves associated with various states of consciousness, meaning the motion of all of this activity is creating these waves.

In the pond, the boat moving through the water is the pulse the neurons fire. Each of those pulses from all those neurons are all boats all moving at once all creating their own waves which combine, & cancel with all the other waves when measured at a point (you in the water). This is the point when these process become conscious thought, there is a convergence in specific regions of the brain, in essence, the collapse of the waveform, which we view as our conscious thought.

These thoughts are altered by where their convergence is in the brain and the underlying neurons that created the moment. If we moved positions in the pond the implications and perception of the boat's movement are different. They would feel and look different. If the boat was different (different neurons firing) Then again our perception of the boat and its movement would be altered.

The Subconscious

In psychology, the word subconscious is the part of consciousness that is not currently in focal awareness. The word "subconscious" represents an anglicized version of the French subconscient as coined by the psychologist Pierre Janet (1859–1947), who argued that underneath the layers of critical-thought functions of the conscious mind lay a powerful awareness that he called the subconscious mind.

Sigmund Freud first used the term "subconscious" in 1893to describe associations and impulses that are not accessible to consciousness. He later abandoned the term in favor of unconscious, noting the following:

   "If someone talks of subconsciousness, I cannot tell whether he means the term topographically – to indicate something lying in the mind beneath consciousness – or qualitatively – to indicate another consciousness, a subterranean one, as it were. He is probably not clear about any of it. The only trustworthy antithesis is between conscious and unconscious."

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subconscious

The subconscious is continually working. The age-old advice - sleep on it - is born from realization on some level that our brains are working on the problem. Recently studies have shown that there is another layer of processing happening all of the time in our bodies, and probably more than one. But why?

It has to do with the emergent behavior that occurs throughout the human body. We have systems built upon systems built upon systems. Each of these systems still functions but also influences those larger systems to which they are apart. We observe this hierarchy through biological systems, but also all natural systems as well.

Emergent Behavior

In philosophy, systems theory, science, and art, emergence is the condition of an entity having properties its parts do not have, due to interactions among the parts.

Emergence plays a central role in theories of integrative levels and of complex systems. For instance, the phenomenon of life as studied in biology is an emergent property of chemistry, and psychological phenomena emerge from the neurobiological phenomena of living things.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergence

Emergent behavior has one of the most fascinating parallels to this theory. We have observed emergent behavior in biological systems, but also in vast computer clusters like what google use. This combined with this theory strongly suggests that it is not some mystical property that enables consciousness, but instead is a manifestation of the constituent parts. It appears the density of the parts directly relates to moment of criticality - the moment of the phase change/waveform collapse/our reality - when the parts are still the parts, but something larger emerges as a whole of the parts.

This happens moment by moment and fractally resonates throughout the entirety of things.

Perception

(from the Latin perceptio) is the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the presented information, or the environment.

All perception involves signals that go through the nervous system, which in turn result from physical or chemical stimulation of the sensory system. For example, vision involves light striking the retina of the eye, smell is mediated by odor molecules, and hearing involves pressure waves.

Perception is not only the passive receipt of these signals, but it's also shaped by the recipient's learning, memory, expectation, and attention.

Perception can be split into two processes,
   (1) processing the sensory input, which transforms these low-level information to higher-level information (e.g., extracts shapes for object recognition);
   (2) processing which is connected with a person's concepts and expectations (or knowledge), restorative and selective mechanisms (such as attention) that influence perception.

Neuroscience

Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system. It is a multidisciplinary branch of biology that combines physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, developmental biology, cytology, mathematical modeling and psychology to understand the fundamental and emergent properties of neurons and neural circuits. The understanding of the biological basis of learning, memory, behavior, perception, and consciousness has been described by Eric Kandel as the "ultimate challenge" of the biological sciences.

The Philosophy Of Information

Information As A Lens To View Our World

The journey to understand our existence is as old as the species itself. Information Theory forms an interesting Philosophical ideal that relates innately to our everyday lives. It shows that what we do, what we say, what we think not only has an internal effect but applies externally to our world as well. It is why most forms of spiritual expression have components of prayer, group work, and community. At some internal level, we seem naturally aware of this phenomena and continually find ourselves searching to quantify and identify it. As we gain more knowledge about our existence we continually find simplicity at the core of complexity. This philosophy indemnifies that concept to bring about complex exchange through simple application much the same way martial arts practiced.

Balance

Balance in the quintessential foundation we can hope for. Balance can be a physical manifestation as well as a non-corporal one like emotions or mental states which are a reflection of an internal physical process. We perceive balance through a complex series of systems and it stands to reason that this a reflection of existence itself as we live in a state of dynamic equilibrium from a biological level as well social and physical levels.

Realizing this it makes sense to have balance as a basis for living a good life. We all have exceptional amounts of anecdotes about how balance and imbalance can affect life rather it's through the lens of nutrition, well being, work, time management, or really any aspect of life. We see this repeated over and over. We observer nature do the same.

An interesting aspect of balance that is often overlooked is that once at a point of equilibrium there are more opportunities for change in a system, when the scales are tipped in any one direction there is only a 1 and a 0 keep tilting it one way or bring it back the other, but at the point of balance the system takes on a quantum-like property in which the scale could move either way or no way.


It would seem that the closer we mimic natural systems in our everyday lives the better results we find. It is only logical that this would carry over to the human condition, our emotional states, and general well being as these are all rooted in physical systems themselves. The most natural state of these systems is balance.

By piggybacking on the flow of information rather than be through meditation, your social groups, exposure, or other means, we can find balance in our lives.

Balance is never an end, but the beginning.  

Life

Life is amazing.

Describing life has left the finest of us is riddles.

Some would argue that its the mysteries of life or existence that perpetual drive us onward.

Even when we quantify and categorize life through the collective effort of humanity as a whole for our recorded history we stand amazed and perplexed daily.

Through studying that amazement we have seen patterns and one of the patterns that we see consistently arise is that this wonderous complexity that encompasses us is itself the product of much more simple building blocks.

These building blocks them themselves break into simple parts and those simple parts have a simple piece's and those simple pieces following logic would eventually have a simple, single component.

Information  

Nutrition

The human body in terms of nutrition is an equation. It is a constant balance of finding the right food to eat and also when to eat that food. Any form of good nutrition has to find a balance of both.

Viewing this through an evolutionary lens we can say that as we evolved, due to technology limitations, we know that our ancestors were entirely dependent upon natures cycles. As technology evolved our dependency has changed where given enough resources a person can be entirely independent of natures natural cycles.

One of those cycles is the suns impact. Animals feed at dusk and dawn because it is cooler - they get more bang for their energetical buck. This makes most animals diurnal because the heat of the sun at midday is less conducive to hunting than at dusk or dawn so our circadian rhythms naturally set off metabolic process inside of us that makes us sleepy in during midday.

So now we understand when we hunt the way that we eat was in direct correlation to those time windows we begin to see that our ancestors lived in a state of feast or a state of famine as most(potentially all) animals do.

Fast forward through evolution to agriculture, which genetically speaking is like last week from where we are today and the hunter-gather cycles get their first competition, but in the eyes of evolution we've barely begun down a different path so we're still tethered to these evolved cycles over millions of years.

Accounting for this into modern living we are beginning to see through research that adhering to a time schedule when eating is nearly as important as the act itself because of the way the body process through those time of feast and times of famine.

Society

Society is a living organism, it is an extension of humanity much as we are an extension of the DNA that makes us. We are the shapers of it, but it exists far beyond us as an individual. Information flows throughout society in many ways. The first that comes to mind is our course the internet, but in essence, it is a part of all communication, which without we would not have a society to speak of. Information at these macro levels is fractally representative of Information as covered in this source. It behaves in the same ways.

Example:

A crowded station and someone yells a message (the boat in motion) to be passed along (the PA is down, brownout). This message will carry from person to person(The wave - notice the peak and valley of the message being passed and the lull between passing is a wave) arriving at the end(you).

Example

A music concert or other large gathering of people like a sporting event carries a visceral response when climatic action happens. When a score is made in a professional sports game the goal happens(the boat moving) the wave of celebration reverberates throughout the crowd (the waves hitting the edge of the pond and bouncing around until settling back toward equilibrium).

In fact, we can study this in all sorts of interesting ways via the movements of crowds, the growth of cities, the growth of populations, resource consumption, and essentially any system.

Examples & Links

Prayer

Prayer has been a part of human evolution from very long ago. Every megalithic ancient site, even ones dating back 10,000+ years depict effigies. One could argue that it is our constant battle against the environment and the unknown that fueled these fire, and it certainly has if you examine religious sacraments and rites, but what if another aspect as to why this act is seemingly universal among people is because there is something at work. That is what people of belief will tell you, but what’s at work - following the logic of simplicity - is something much less complex than a powerful entity and much more simple.

When we pray a physical process is happening, our brains neurons are firing off, we’re creating brain waves with the information of our prayer encoded onto them. These brain waves move out into existence interacting with all things, as is the information from all things in motion (everything). These prayers then have an effect - albeit very tiny in the grand scale of existence, most will have no recognizable impact, but they all make an impact none the less. Sometimes this impact does have recognizable results.

Re-affirmations,

Anecdotes

The platonic solids consistently creep up in visualizations exploring this theory.

Conclusion

This, as all continual studies are an interpretation of the evidence as we see it. Information would be able to move many magnitudes faster than the speed of light, not by breaking any of the more fundamental physics models. Much akin to our pond, when motion happens it can be detected instantaneously if you control every single variable and were monitoring the pond and its environment  The mechanisms of that system apply to how the fabric of reality unfolds and consequently why phenomena explored in this compendium seem to affect not just our personal reflection of reality, but reality itself in the sense that the group experiences the change and not just the individual.

It is the constant motion of everything in existence that drives the unfolding of time chaotic, but with the capability for patterns among the chaos, much the way random number generators from the Princeton global consciousness project can fall into patterns at times surrounding globally impactful events. It is these countless collective motions that create the moment where the waveform collapses and probability becomes reality, where our world exists. In constant motion, ever affecting the next collapse and the next ad infinitum.

A Final Thought

A single thought experiment, our pond, viewed through the proper lens shows us insight into every aspect of existence, but what does this say? There is an observable consistency and interconnectivity between all levels of reality because the underlying principles, the building blocks and their interactions, are fractal. It is simply the scale which changes. This resonates throughout our experience and can be seen at all levels.

This means that everything we think and every action we take directly impacts reality. Be accountable to this beauty and acknowledge that there are no absolutes.
