Ancient Notion of "Matter Four Squared" Called Earth

1. Having four equal sides and four right angles; square.
2. Marked by firm, unwavering conviction or expression; forthright: a foursquare refusal to yield.

I thought to define the nature of foursquare by definition. It was not very easy to find such a definition as to what was thought in my mind a relation to the ancient notion I have of earth. Definitively expressed, and coordinated into a frame.

To see such a relation to the operation of the "endocrinology of the human body" in such a form would be to steer the modern day notion of such a framework, to deal with what Antonio Dammasio might have call a "powerful metaphor for consciousness, for the birth of the knowing mind."1." A stepping onto the stage under the light, or "being born" into the world.

Such use of nature would not be unseen in this relation to think "the leaf" has this quality about it in relation to the sun, or the bee, can have such an affect on those around them by such releases of the hormone.

15th Century Manuscript by Bartholomeus Anglicus, on the Property of Things

On the Property of Things

The work was written for the use of students and the general public, in Latin in 19 books at the school of Magdeburg in Saxonia[4]. A number of copies exist both in manuscript and in printed form. Bartholomew carefully notes the sources for the material included, although, at present, it is sometimes impossible to identify or locate some of them. His annotations give a good idea of the wide variety of works available to a medieval scholar.

The subjects of the books, in order, are God, angels (including demons), the human mind or soul, physiology, of ages (family and domestic life), medicine, the universe and celestial bodies, time, form and matter (elements), air and its forms, water and its forms, earth and its forms including geography, gems, minerals and metals, animals, and color, odor, taste and liquids.

While I cannot say I have ever read these manuscripts, it was insightful that one could see the preceding idea here about "all knowledge" that one might contain in book form to explain the nature of reality as it was known at that time, became the forerunner of Encyclopedia as we know it today.

Some of the ideas I have about this come from my many journeys into books I have read over the years. Some of us are indeed nostalgic about what we can hold in our hands versus the newer technologies that have supplanted the book. How it connects us to it's subject and it's author.

Change, is hard thing to overcome when it comes to adapting to new technology and how we have always done things. But as the "ole dinosaurs of comfort" and the less likely to adapt to new circumstance, the challenge is then to see how the world in Wikipedia and the Librarian sought to reference information that we assume now quite easily, as we reference by linking, and using the source as information.

It is strange as well that while setting the framework for presenting these ideas I have develop and encountered, helped to set my mind on how I see the world. How it is "shaped" by "very simple identifications" to such objects that I have assigned a reality, according to that schematic embedded as a geometry mind mapped and expressed.

It is so diverse the subject of the human being that to identify all the abilities of the human being in such an expression is beyond the scope and intention of this entry, that regardless, I thought to reveal what it is in the most "innate of us" as we express ourselves in our daily encounters.

Mind Matters

This is a definitive expression then of all the likely avenues one might take and this leads one to think a certain way and this in itself forms the basis of exchange with the world around us and the people we are involved in. Our empathetic relation based on formative ideas about our experiences and the emotive content that has been injected into the matter defined world as a set process for the mind and it's ultimate realization of what consciousness plays, as we set firm this relation.

You can be from another country and philosophy as being instrumental in this explanation, by be explicative of the way you lived, and the way the world was experienced around you. Thus to such an experience may be set to mind that such formation of these matters might be define in by the weight with which we assign density in the form of elemental relation in thought and how firm this definition is in relation to such mind matters.

So with such inclination to the possibility of what consciousness can become what value then to see that such mater defined in mind might play an importance in the way we see the world and the way the world responds, to such a "spirit of kind" that it be "more gross in it's manifestation" and held to the evolutionary aspects of the body formed, that it could ever be more then what we might think it really is?

Shall we have no hope then that the spirit is of kind in consciousness nothing more then the animal , that one sought to express the spirit more in conscious, then that we thought so gross? That such an ability in consciousness can ever see such changes that the earth formed can not have it's finer elements to say, that the world is defined by the nature of these elementals, and nothing more?

1The Feeling of what Happens, by Antonio Damasio, Chapter one.

Wednesday, December 24, 2008


Empetheia is Greek for empathy. The Greek termnology describes it as...."feeling into," a term used initially by theoreticians of aesthetics for the ability to perceive the subjective experience f another person.1

"But where is the genetic basis for empathy with other species?"

Sure, a statement is made. Science asks that it be backed up.

IN no way should one think "one is a machine" doing the bidding of science by asking for such proof. It just seems robot like tome that the emotive inflections are never to be considered in that exchange. Should one then think that the emotive inflections have divested itself of it's reason? That we should also prove "emotive states exist" and are inherent in experience, as well?

Neurological basis

Research in recent years has focused on possible brain processes underlying the experience of empathy. For instance, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been employed to investigate the functional anatomy of empathy.[32]These studies have shown that observing another person’s emotional state activates parts of the neuronal network involved in processing that same state in oneself, whether it is disgust,[33]touch,[34]or pain.[35][36][37][38]The study of the neural underpinnings of empathy has received increased interest following the target paper published by Preston and DeWaal,[39]following the discovery of mirror neuronsin monkeys that fire both when the creature watches another perform an action as well as when they themselves perform it. In their paper, they
argued that 'attended perception of the object's state automatically activates neural representations, and that this activation automatically primes or generate the associated autonomic and somatic responses, unless inhibited. This mechanism is similar to the common coding theorybetween perception and action

Definitely more under that link in regards to the "discussion on empathy."

Beyond the Mirror of Alice

Sometimes those that we have attached ourselves too, can reverberate in "strong emotional upheavals." It is not so unlike that such a cord is cut between them and yourself, at that time to illicit these waves that can roll over? Such an effect can have a far reaching power to it, whose distance cannot be measure in inches or miles. So such celebratory moments are indeed better to propel the spirit "in all aspects?"

The mind-body problem(link)

The mind-body problem concerns the explanation of the relationship that exists between minds, or mental processes, and bodily states or processes.[2] The main aim of philosophers working in this area is to determine the nature of the mind and mental states/processes, and how--or even if--minds are affected by and can affect the body.

Our perceptual experiences depend on stimuli which arrive at our various sensory organs from the external world and these stimuli cause changes in our mental states, ultimately causing us to feel a sensation, which may be
pleasant or unpleasant. Someone's desire for a slice of pizza, for example, will tend to cause that person to move his or her body in a specific manner and in a specific direction to obtain what he or she wants. The question, then, is how it can be possible for conscious experiences to arise out of a lump of gray matter endowed with nothing but electrochemical properties.[11] A related problem is to explain how someone's propositional attitudes (e.g. beliefs and desires) can cause that individual's neurons to fire and his muscles to contract in exactly the correct manner. These comprise some of the puzzles that have confronted epistemologists and philosophers of mind from at least the time of René Descartes.[8]

While this is a philosophical point of view it is still one that speaks to the nature of the "Quantum Mind" although not called particularly hard science, yet, would give a further extension to the matter states that the brain occupies?

A Mind/Body Theory then?

Emotively this would reside just outside, and experience is easily able to pick up this in recognition(empathy) "being more subtle" then what we take for granted in physical appearance?

See:About Cesar Millan

I watch Cesar Millan a lot, and while always having animals of one form or another, it served me well to watch their behaviours while holding an assertiveness that must be demonstrated "as confidence" while dealing with them.

How you carry yourself around them. How you recognize the animal behaviour as a function of the most evolutionary aspect of the people we are, just as we had evolved in the brain structure. So "flight and fight" responses are very close to the surface for animals by nature. I mean sure, certain responses can be illicit based on reward system in one form or another, yet, it is better to see "how that fear manifests in the animals " and not just in the physical appearance, but in what we as animals and human radiate.

Just a thought.

Rural Community Library Model

Trinity College Library, Dublin. (Photo: Candida Höfer.)

The idea behind this conception is explained quite nicely by the article that was written for our local Newspaper, under Opinions by this gentlemen. To understand the full scope of this proposal one will have top do some work with regards to reading on how this conception is put forward, under the the statement of "Rural Library Community Model."

Click on Image for larger version to read

Access to information should not know any discrimination in regards to location and to this end, rural communities in Canada should not be less privy to that access that the larger centres have in this regard. Not in this day and age, when the technologies are there that will allowed "a free and direct link to the streaming" of information.

See labels attached for further updating so that one can realize the potential of using the whitespace that is currently going to be freed up, and had been put up on the auction block by our Canadian Government.

This resource is a "free one" and should not be manipulated by corporate interest to further indenture people to what is an inherent right to this access to information. Any attempts to justify this in relation to business is sought only "to profit" from peoples misfortunes. This right of passage should be granted in these economic times to develop and provide learning, while these times require this kind of innovation in thinking and new strategies in a cooperative society.

What is the background to Information

The background supplies the energy for information and contains all history. It is the resource for which information is accessed, and is done through the Universal Library. Before it is objectively defined, it has architecturally ascribe schematics for the blue print of formation and is channelled through the impetus of a motivational current of projection into reality. The compartmentalizations are what we ascribe to the layers of meaning(phases transitions) while we look at it from a "blurring state" as if below water, looking to a world above that is objectively defined. A reflection of the reality, but "before" it's manifestation?

If conceived as a series of ever-wider experiential contexts, nested one within the other like a set of Chinese boxes, consciousness can be thought of as wrapping back around on itself in such a way that the outermost 'context' is indistinguishable from the innermost 'content' - a structure for which we coined the term 'liminocentric'.

As most know "Liminocentric structure" will have been defined here then? I like to think this goes back much further in our natures, and to recognize this pattern, much as Brian Greene might have spoken too, in article above one would have to venture into it to understand.

Archaeology: Frequently-Asked Questions
What is a Medicine Wheel?

Then why would I inject past historical views here to current research? It is a issue of wholeness and bringing resolution to the camps of LQG and Strings. If you look at the circle here in an expansionary view. The circle as a point, deals with particle reductionistic principals as well as dealing with General Relativity on a cosmological scale. They both deal with gravity from their respective positions. What are their strengths and weaknesses?

I will be away for about two weeks and a much needed break, so I hope people will explore this avenue, for it is the basis of my research in understanding this interchange between, depending on which circle you belong, two ends that need to come together and in this regard, LQG and String theory might have found this unification, but from which different ends?

See:Spheres Instead of Circles

There is no end, and it is continuous by nature?

One harmonious possibility is that string enthusiasts and loop quantum gravity aficionados are actually constructing the same theory, but from vastly different starting points. That each theory involves loops-in string theory, these are string loops; in loop quantum gravity, they're harder to describe non mathematically, but roughly speaking, they're elementary loops of space-suggests there might be a connection. This possibility is further supported by the fact that on a few problems accessible to both, such as blackhole entropy, the two theories agree fully. And on the question of space time's constituents, both theories suggest that there is some kind of atomized structure. Page 490, Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene

To me this connection lies in how we interpret the circle and this variation in between them, is a powerful topological structure form that is understood as we see the question of which circle is which? From which space quantum mechanically to cosmologically. In terms of that atomized look, to the nature of relativity through that Cosmo.

The last departing statement in Brian Greene's book sets the stage for how the string community has to orientate its view from one perspective, while LQG needs to orientate theirs. This is used, to point to ISCAP and the introduction Brian Green gives us.

Look at Page 493 of his book, and then look here.

The goal of ISCAP is to bring together theoretical physicists, astrophysicists, and observational astronomers to address key problems in particle physics and cosmology that require a broad confluence of expertise and perspective.

Even the good intention would have failed to see this connection between both camps, but I see that having it explained as such here, I hope to point to something much deeper in our psyche that warrants the orientation to mathematical structures that underlies our consciousness. As subjective a view as it might seem to some, there are reasons that I support such views, and without hurting the purity of the direct mathematical relations, I needed to bring the article and title of this entry forward for consideration. It is a necessary part of wholeness that the discrete natures and the wonderful views of continuity would share some relationship even in the bulk of our considerations?

Which Circle do you belong too? You are one and the same are you not?:)

Physicist Explains String Theory to SB
"Nothing to me would be more poetic; no outcome would be more graceful ... than for us to confirm our theories of the ultramicroscopic makeup of spacetime and matter by turning our giant telescopes skyward and gazing at the stars," Greene said.

The Elegant Universe, by Brian Greene, pg 231 and Pg 232

"But now, almost a century after Einstein's tour-de-force, string theory gives us a quantum-mechanical description of gravity that, by necessity, modifies general relativity when distances involved become as short as the Planck length. Since Reinmanian geometry is the mathematical core of general relativity, this means that it too must be modified in order to reflect faithfully the new short distance physics of string theory. Whereas general relativity asserts that the curved properties of the universe are described by Reinmanian geometry, string theory asserts this is true only if we examine the fabric of the universe on large enough scales. On scales as small as planck length a new kind of geometry must emerge, one that aligns with the new physics of string theory. This new geometry is called, quantum geometry."

Information and the Universal Library

3.1 As Cytowic notes, Plato and Socrates viewed emotion and reason as in a kind of struggle, one in which it was vitally important for reason to win out. Aristotle took a more moderate view, that both emotion and reason are integral parts of a complex human soul--a theory proposed by Aristotle in explicit opposition to Platonism (De Anima 414a 19ff). Cytowic appears to endorse the Platonic line, with the notable difference that he would apparently rather have emotion win out.

I am trying to "create a image" that will use the one above. It is important that the select quoted comment below is understood. This can't be done without some reference.

So while the exercise may be going on "inside" things are happening on the outside. Scientists have never been completely honest with themselves, while some may concern themselves with whose name said what?

I use Plato as a namesake obviously, because of what I saw of some of our influential minds speaking, all the while making inferences to Plato. When ever you read something that resonates with you, it is of value because it correlates to something that you already know. This is what I tried to get across in the previous post, about what is "self evident." Little do some people recognize that while I may have inferred the point of some philosophical foundations, it is not without recognizing that the "qualitative phrases" have to be reduced as well to a logic. To reason.

How do you do that? Well I'll tell you what I found and then you can think whether I understood reason in it's proper format. Whether I understood the "shadows of Plato" to mean something other then what could have been interpreted as being wrong. What is that analogy of the Cave really mean?

Our attempt to justify our beliefs logically by giving reasons results in the "regress of reasons." Since any reason can be further challenged, the regress of reasons threatens to be an infinite regress. However, since this is impossible, there must be reasons for which there do not need to be further reasons: reasons which do not need to be proven. By definition, these are "first principles." The "Problem of First Principles" arises when we ask Why such reasons would not need to be proven. Aristotle's answer was that first principles do not need to be proven because they are self-evident, i.e. they are known to be true simply by understanding them.

Yes I did not enter the halls of higher learning in the traditional ways. You can converse for many years, does not mean you become devoid of the lessons that spoken amongst the commentors. How is it you can think that while listening to scientists you cannot uncover the the processes they use? If I had given thirty years to study, what exactly had I studied? I am a doctor of nothing.:)

This is a torus (like a doughnut) on which several circles are located. Unlike on a Euclidean plane, on this surface it is impossible to determine which circle is inside of which, since if you go from the black circle to the blue, to the red, and to the grey, you can continuously come back to the initial black, and likewise if you go from the black to the grey, to the red, and to the blue, you can also come back to the black.

My quote at Backreaction on this and that, reveals not only part of the understanding gained through this "infinite regress," but also the understanding we have with the world around us. Some would be better served to see the image of the Klein bottle, but I wanted to show what is going on in a "abstract way" to what is happening inside of us, and at the same time, what is happening outside.

I had used the brain and head as a place of our conscious awareness within context of our environment, our bodies. The topological explanations of the numbers above, and used them in the next paragraph. There will be confusion with the colour lines, please disregard that.

While I talked of the emotive and mental realities. I included the spiritual development in the end. The way this interaction takes place, is sometimes just as the mental function(yellow). Other times, it is the emotive realization of the experience. It is coloured by our emotion(red).

While we interact with our environment, there is this turning inside out, continuously. Sometimes we may say that "1" is the emotive realization, while the number 2 is seen as a mental extension of the situation. While the areas overlap each other, an outward progression may mean that the spiritual progress is numbered 4, while the interaction of the emotive, mental and spiritual progression may be number 3. Ultimately the spiritual progression is 4 (Violet). All these colours can mix and are significant in themself. They reveal something about our very constitution.

While some may wonder how could any conceptualization ever integrate the "Synesthesia views" of the world when it sees itself presented with such a comparison? The journey of course leads to the "Colour of Gravity." Discard your body, and one will wonder about the "clear light." What it means, in the "perceptive state of existence." If one is prepared, then one shall not have "to much time on their hands" getting lost in the fog.

Plato and Aristotle, Up and Down by Kelley L. Ross, Ph.D.

Rafael has Plato pointing up and Aristotle gesturing down to indicate the difference in their metaphysics. For Plato, true existence is in the World of Forms, in relation to which this world (of Becoming) is a kind of shadow or image of the higher reality. Aristotle, on the other hand, regards individual objects in this world as "primary substance" and dismisses Plato's Forms -- except for God as a pure actuality, without matter.

However, when it comes to ethics and politics, the gestures should be reversed. Plato, like Socrates, believed that to do the good without error, one must know what the good is. Thus, we get the dramatic moment in the Republic where Plato says that philosophers, who have escaped from the Cave and come to understand the higher reality, must be forced to return to this world and rule, so that their wisdom can benefit the state. Aristotle, on the other hand, says that the "good" is simply the goal of various particular activities, without one meaning in Plato's sense. The particular activities of most human affairs involve phronésis, "practical wisdom." This is not sophía, true wisdom, for Aristotle, which involves the theoretical knowledge of the highest things, i.e. the gods, the heavens, and God.

Thus, for philosophy, Aristotle should point up and would represent a contemplative attitude that was certainly more congenial to religious practices in the Middle Ages. By the same token, Aristotle's contribution to what we now think of as science was hampered by his lack of interest in mathematics. Although Aristotle in general had a more empirical and experimental attitude than Plato, modern science did not come into its own until Plato's Pythagorean confidence in the mathematical nature of the world returned with Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. For instance, Aristotle, relying on a theory of opposites that is now only of historical interest, rejected Plato's attempt to match the Platonic Solids with the elements -- while Plato's expectations are realized in mineralogy and crystallography, where the Platonic Solids occur naturally.

Therefore, caution is in order when comparing the meaning of the metaphysics of Plato and Aristotle with its significance for their attitudes towards ethics, politics, and science. Indeed, if the opposite of wisdom is, not ignorance, but folly, then Socrates and Plato certainly started off with the better insight.

It is good that you go to the top of the page of the linked quotes of Kelley L. Ross. You must know that I developed this site without really understanding the extent Mr. Ross had taken this issue. There is much that is familiar, and with him, an opposing view too.


  • Induction and Deduction
    Intuitively Balanced: Induction and Deduction

  • ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce is of trivial import; love, faith, truth of character, the aspiration of man, these are sacred.Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "Carl Sagan's Library of Alexandria-R. P. C. Rodgers

    "It is perhaps the oldest university in the world."

    Can you imagine if one might have been restricted from the museums of history, based on what another might have thought of the person? To encourage such ideas to blossom, that it is understood the garden has to provide a source from which things can grow. Why not circumvent all views other then one's own, and you shall own those person's too.

    If we are to keep one in "ignorance of life" then why not circumvent them to what the world is for them in "their sections and houses on earth? Keep them, to the culture, and not allow for the greater dialogue between these cultures?

    While the historical blend here is being extolled, I of course have current thoughts about this in todays world of the internet.

    Reconstruction of one of the storage rooms of the Library of Alexandria. From Carl Sagan's Cosmos (1980),
    The Royal Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt, was once the largest library in the world. It is generally thought to have been founded at the beginning of the 3rd century BC, during the reign of Ptolemy II of Egypt. It was likely created after his father had built what would become the first part of the library complex, the temple of the Muses — the Musaion (from which is derived the modern English word museum).

    It has been reasonably established that the library, or parts of the collection, were destroyed by fire on a number of occasions (library fires were common enough and replacement of handwritten manuscripts was very difficult, expensive and time-consuming). To this day the details of the destruction (or destructions) remain a lively source of controversy. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina was inaugurated in 2003 near the site of the old library.

    Now you know that I believe that the resource for such potentials is very capable in anyone's hands. That if they would like to draw from such a resource, that maybe it has to be physical for them. So, they may go to the library.Yet there is the "sublty of the intangile" that is not accepted by those who are "deeply physical" about what they can accept, so they can accept such libraries.

    Then again one might think twice about what is in the library of the internet? Yet, it is not without the "subtleness of the intangible" that we see where the "good thoughts/ideas can issue from the expert and the lay person alike. That such things become part of the library of the internet.

    How do we know in our heart when such information is true? That we can rest assure that such dangers of misleading do not take us into their world? Do they some how control you by what they like to hear?

    Innatism is a philosophical doctrine introduced by Plato in the socratic dialogue Meno which holds that the mind is born with ideas/knowledge, and that therefore the mind is not a tabula rasa at birth. It asserts therefore that not all knowledge is obtained from experience and the senses. Innatism is the opposite of empiricism.

    Plato claimed that humans are born with ideas/forms in the mind that are in a dormant state. He claimed that we have acquired these ideas prior to our birth when we existed as souls in the world of Forms. To access these, humans need to be reminded of them through proper education and experience.

    Or are we gifted with this innatism about what is good in all people, while there are those who would become rich by such restrictions of a "software selection."

    The French librarian Gabriel Naudé wrote:

    And therefore I shall ever think it extreamly necessary, to collect for this purpose all sorts of books, (under such precautions, yet, as I shall establish) seeing a Library which is erected for the public benefit, ought to be universal; but which it can never be, unlesse it comprehend all the principal authors, that have written upon the great diversity of particular subjects, and chiefly upon all the arts and sciences; [...] For certainly there is nothing which renders a Library more recommendable, then when every man findes in it that which he is in search of

    I mean, if we were restricted to the ability to retrieve from the massive amounts of data being presented, do you think it a good thing to restrict people from being able to develop their intellect? Learn more?


    “Somebody who only reads newspapers and at best books of contemporary authors looks to me like an extremely near-sighted person who scorns eyeglasses. He is completely dependent on the prejudices and fashions of his times, since he never gets to see or hear anything else. And what a person thinks on his own without being stimulated by the thoughts and experiences of other people is even in the best case rather paltry and monotonous. There are only a few enlightened people with a lucid mind and style and with good taste within a century. What has been preserved of their work belongs among the most precious possessions of mankind. We owe it to a few writers of antiquity (Plato, Aristotle, etc.) that the people in the Middle Ages could slowly extricate themselves from the superstitions and ignorance that had darkened life for more than half a millennium. Nothing is more needed to overcome the modernist's snobbishness.”

    "On Classic Literature" from Ideas and Opinions – Crown Publishing (1954)-Albert Einstein (page 64) originally published in the Jungkaufmann, a monthly publication of the “Schweizerischer Kaufmaennischer Verein, Jugendbund" (Feb, 29, 1952)(Thanks Phil)

    Some ideas are being past around that have got me thinking. Media had always been a concern to me, because of what one could assume without taking a clear stand on what is proposed or presented.

    Statistical valuations on the trends of reading habits amongst countries and their population. Internet accessibility and information overload.

    The question to my mind has to do with how we are numbing ourselves by adopting a unresponsiveness to information and acceptance as a value toward truth. If one did not have this introspection how is it that one could endeavour to realize the state in which they themself have been placed. It requires "no thinking and acquiescences" to powers beyond us. We are then in essence, sleeping?

    To Remember: Eskesthai

    Trinity College Library, Dublin. (Photo: Candida Höfer.)

    It is sometimes with reverence that we can walk through the old buildings whose architecture breathes. We are transported somehow. All that knowledge, and here it resides. As written word read, can resonate deeply, so too an affinity with places can bring some deeper connection not really understood.

    So you go into the library with a purpose in mind. You are looking for something in particular. All these books. It's as if, that what ever you hold in mind becomes the link between what awaits to be remembered, waits, until it was asked.

    So you are setting the stage then and you may not have realized it.

    Quote from Scienceblogs,"Shifting Literature by Jennifer L. Jacquet?

    Ursula Le Guin

    In its silence, a book is a challenge: it can't lull you with surging music or deafen you with screeching laugh tracks or fire gunshots in your living room; you have to listen to it in your head. A book won't move your eyes for you the way images on a screen do. It won't move your mind unless you give it your mind, or your heart unless you put your heart in it. It won't do the work for you. To read a story well is to follow it, to act it, to feel it, to become it--everything short of writing it, in fact. Reading is not "interactive" with a set of rules or options, as games are; reading is actual collaboration with the writer's mind. No wonder not everybody is up to it.

    So you are most likely setting the stage yourself whether you like to think so or not. Sometimes books will come into view that might never had, had you not gone for one in particular.

    Backreaction in Spherical Harmonical Collapse

    See:The Geometrics Behind the Supernova and it's History for a understanding of what is expressed prior to the manifestation once having define the symmetrical state of existence. How did you arrive at it?

    What Did I mean By Olympics?

    It is not always easy for people to see what lies behind the wonderful beauty of images that we take from the satellite measures of space, and it's dynamical events illustrated in Cassiopeia A. There before you is this majestic image of beauty, as we wonder about it's dynamics.

    These Spitzer Space Telescope images, taken one year apart, show the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (yellow ball) and surrounding clouds of dust (reddish orange). The pictures illustrate that a blast of light from Cassiopeia A is waltzing outward through the dusty skies. This dance, called an "infrared echo," began when the remnant erupted about 50 years ago. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. of Ariz.
    An enormous light echo etched in the sky by a fitful dead star was spotted by the infrared eyes of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

    The surprising finding indicates Cassiopeia A, the remnant of a star that died in a supernova explosion 325 years ago, is not resting peacefully. Instead, this dead star likely shot out at least one burst of energy as recently as 50 years ago.

    How is it such information arrives to us, and we would have to consider the impulse's behind such geometrical explanations. Which we are lucky to see in other ways. So, of course we needed to see the impulse as dynamically driven by the geometrical inclinations of that collapse, and all it's information spread outward by the description in images painted.

    Credit: Weiqun Zhang and Stan Woosley
    This image is from a computer simulation of the beginning of a gamma-ray burst. Here we see the jet 9 seconds after its creation at the center of a Wolf Rayet star by the newly formed, accreting black hole within. The jet is now just erupting through the surface of the Wolf Rayet star, which has a radius comparable to that of the sun. Blue represents regions of low mass concentration, red is denser, and yellow denser still. Note the blue and red striations behind the head of the jet. These are bounded by internal shocks.

    If I had approached you early on and suggested that you look at "bubble geometrodynamics" would it have seemed so real that I would have presented a experiment to you, that would help "by analogies" to see what is happening? Might I then be called the one spreading such information that it was not of value to scientists to consider, that I was seeing in ways that I can only now give to you as example? What science has done so far with using the physics with cosmological views?

    This stunning false-color picture shows off the many sides of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A, which is made up of images taken by three of NASA's Great Observatories, using three different wavebands of light. Infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope are colored red; visible data from the Hubble Space Telescope are yellow; and X-ray data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory are green and blue.

    Located 10,000 light-years away in the northern constellation Cassiopeia, Cassiopeia A is the remnant of a once massive star that died in a violent supernova explosion 325 years ago. It consists of a dead star, called a neutron star, and a surrounding shell of material that was blasted off as the star died. The neutron star can be seen in the Chandra data as a sharp turquoise dot in the center of the shimmering shell.

    In this image above we learn of what manifests in "jet production lines," and such examples are beautiful examples to me of what the geometrics are doing. You needed some way to be able to explain this within context of the universe's incidences "as events." We say this action is one with which we may speak to this "corner of the universe." Yet it is very dynamical in it's expression as we see it multiplied from various perspectives.

    The structure of Model J32 as the jet nears the surface 7820 seconds after core collapse.

    So by experiment(?) I saw such relations, but what use such analogies if they are laid waste to speculation that what was initiated such ideas had been the inclination of geometrics detailed as underlying the basis of all expression as an example of some non euclidean views of Riemann perspectives leading shapes and dynamics of our universe by comparison within the local actions of stars and galaxies?

    Gamma Rays?

    So we get this information in one way or another and it was from such geometrical impulse that such examples are spread throughout the universe in ways that were not understood to well.

This so-called "afterglow" gave an accurate position of the burst on the sky and enabled the deep optical observations made by ground-based observatories and the Hubble Space Telescope.

    A year ago scientists thought they had figured out the nature of gamma-ray bursts. They signal the birth of black holes and traditionally, fall into one of two categories: long or short. A newly discovered hybrid burst has properties of both known classes of gamma-ray bursts yet possesses features that remain unexplained.

    The long bursts are those that last more than two seconds. It is believed that they are ejected by massive stars at the furthest edge of the universe as they collapse to form black holes.

    So looking back to this timeline it is important to locate the ideas spread out before us. Have "some place" inclusive in the reality of that distance from the origins of the stars of our earliest times. 13.7 billions years imagine!

    Fig. 1: Sketchy supernova classification scheme
    A supernova is the most luminous event known. Its luminosity matches those of whole galaxies. The name derives from the works of Walter Baade and Fritz Zwicky who studied supernovae intensively in the early 1930s and used the term supernova therein.
    Nowadays supernova is a collective term for different classes of objects, that exhibit a sudden rise in luminosity that drops again on a timescale of weeks.
    Those objects are subdivided into two classes, supernovae of type I or II (SNe I and SNe II). The distinguishing feature is the absence or the presence of spectral lines of hydrogen. SNe I show no such lines as SNe II do. The class of SNe I is further subdivided in the classes a, b and c. This time the distinguishing feature are spectral features of helium and silicon. SN Ia show silicon features, SN Ib show helium but no silicon features and SN Ic show both no silicon and no helium spectral features.
    The class of SN II is further subdivided in two classes. Those are distinguished by the decline of the lightcurve. Those SN II that show a linear decline are named SN II-L and those that pass through a plateau-phase are referred to as SN II-P.

    So given the standard information one would have to postulate something different then what is currently classified?

    A new Type III (what ever one shall attribute this to definition, versus Type I, Type IIa?

    This artist's timeline chronicles the history of the universe, from its explosive beginning to its mature, present-day state.

    Our universe began in a tremendous explosion known as the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago (left side of strip). Observations by NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer and Wilkinson Anisotropy Microwave Probe revealed microwave light from this very early epoch, about 400,000 years after the Big Bang, providing strong evidence that our universe did blast into existence. Results from the Cosmic Background Explorer were honored with the 2006 Nobel Prize for Physics.

    A period of darkness ensued, until about a few hundred million years later, when the first objects flooded the universe with light. This first light is believed to have been captured in data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The light detected by Spitzer would have originated as visible and ultraviolet light, then stretched, or redshifted, to lower-energy infrared wavelengths during its long voyage to reach us across expanding space. The light detected by the Cosmic Background Explorer and the Wilkinson Anisotropy Microwave Probe from our very young universe traveled farther to reach us, and stretched to even lower-energy microwave wavelengths.

    Astronomers do not know if the very first objects were either stars or quasars. The first stars, called Population III stars (our star is a Population I star), were much bigger and brighter than any in our nearby universe, with masses about 1,000 times that of our sun. These stars first grouped together into mini-galaxies. By about a few billion years after the Big Bang, the mini-galaxies had merged to form mature galaxies, including spiral galaxies like our own Milky Way. The first quasars ultimately became the centers of powerful galaxies that are more common in the distant universe.

    NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured stunning pictures of earlier galaxies, as far back as ten billion light-years away.

    Would sort of set up the challenge?

    You must understand that the areas with which I had been dealing are highly rigorous. Imagine the purity with which these subjects deal. Now pale in comparison are the controls and experimental validation processes, I see in psychological information and experimentation. Relying on subject associative mapping relevances in the brain, would this lead to a conclusive model assumption in the neural correlate to consciousness?

    Memory echoes in brain's sensory terrain by Bruce Bower
    Images of brain show areas that become most active during perception of pictures (a and c, in green) and sounds (e, in yellow). Small arrows point to sites of greatest activity during recall of pictures (b and d) and sounds (f).
    Wheeler, Petersen, Buckner/Washington Univ

    So vast indeed the thinking mind and it's capabilities, that one might not see the interlinking/backtracking of the brain in it's neuronal flavours, as to the time and day of each event?

    Yet analysis is there as you look through the information, as to the basis of what might have instigated a "modulation" of the senses. Holographic in nature possibly? If these faculties are impaired and death ensued, would it seem so unlikely that physical functions, would have had to been elevated in some way? Especially if relegated to that memory. What value "images" in mind?

    A synesthetic 'Master of Memory' (Mark Ellis) makes a fateful choice after dancing with a stranger (Stephanie Morgenstern), in the unusual wartime romance Remembrance.

    Image by Joy von Tiedemann and Mark Morgenstern
    Toronto, 1942. ALFRED GRAVES has the curse of perfect memory. It’s born of a rare condition, synesthesia, that fuses his five senses. He can’t see something without also tasting it, hearing its colour, feeling its scent — it’s overwhelming. He protects himself by living cautiously, touring his one-man memory show. One night, AURORA LUFT is in the audience. They share a drink, a dance … then she confesses she was sent to recruit him to a top-secret spy training camp near Whitby, Ontario. Privately, and against orders, she warns him not to come: “It’s not your kind of work.” But it’s too late. Alfred feels changed. Ready for anything. He signs up.

    To me this exercise is a exploration of the abilities of what "might have happened." The ideas of ingenuity and production of mind, to establish new perceptions beyond the current uses of math/physics we are currently encountering.

    I have no ready answers, just the continue interest and understanding of what new can be brought to the areas heading the forefront of science. What accomplishments, model assumption might do for forming new areas, which to us is with this creativity impulse.

    Speak, Memory
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977); novelist, poet, scholar, translator, and lepidopterist (he enjoyed chasing and collecting butterflies). A cosmopolitan Russian-born émigré whose linguistic facility, erudite style, and eloquent prose helped to establish him as one of the most brilliant and respected literary figures of the 20th century. Nabokov's best-known novel, Lolita (1955), shocked many people but its humor and literary style were praised by critics. Nabokov produced literature and scholarship of beauty, complexity, and inventiveness in both Russian and English. Nabokov himself used to say "My head speaks English, my heart speaks Russian and my ear speaks French". *Synaesthesia: Vladimir Nabobov was a synesthete, as was also his mother, his wife, and his son Dimitri.

    While one of the aspect of this disease(shall I call it that?) is a memory for things, as the movie up top shows. There is some opinion about artistic validation and synesthesia in regards the actually relation.

    Further I thought it appropriate to divest oneself of some saintly and spiritual inclination, if one thought this might have been of appeal in my mind. It is. Then I must dissuade such thinking from something more rigorous.

    So Sensory Infusion and contrive inherent as to the disease, was one thing to look at, in relation to creativity, and abilities in science and writing, to move perception forward.

    Synesthesia and Artistic Experimentation by Crétien van Campen

    Richard Cytowic has argued that synesthetic experimentation by modern artists was based on deliberate contrivances of sensory fusion and not on involuntary experiences of cross-modal association. He has placed artistic experiments with sensory fusion outside the domain of synesthesia research. Artistic experiments, though historically interesting, are considered irrelevant for the study of synesthesia. Contrary to this view I argue that at least Scriabin's and Kandinsky's artistic experiments were based on involuntary experiences of synesthesia. They were investigating perceptual and emotional mechanisms of involuntary synesthetic experiences that meet Cytowic's criteria of synesthesia. Artistic experiments are not only historically interesting, but may also contribute to present synesthesia research.

    How the Natural World has Been Painted

    While some are intrigued by EM waves, I have a fascination for GW and the way we can portrait the natural world, we do not see.

    See:Lisa Images

    The sounds of gravitational waves are probably too low for us to actually hear. However, the signals that scientists hope to measure with LISA and other gravitational wave detectors are best described as "sounds." If we could hear them, here are some of the possible sounds of a gravitational wave generated by the movement of a small body in spiralling into a black hole.

    There is a lesson in this, when you learn to hear what billiard balls sound like, and what the resulting ""click" could represent.

    Savas Dimopoulos

    Here’s an analogy to understand this: imagine that our universe is a two-dimensional pool table, which you look down on from the third spatial dimension. When the billiard balls collide on the table, they scatter into new trajectories across the surface. But we also hear the click of sound as they impact: that’s collision energy being radiated into a third dimension above and beyond the surface. In this picture, the billiard balls are like protons and neutrons, and the sound wave behaves like the graviton.

    It helps you to see the world as a very much different place then the one we are accustomed too.

    Can these be applied to such romantic reasoning, that we are encouraged to poetry and other things, where such idealizations, are battling for whose interpretation is right? What portraits are these that there is no romm for them to hang for observation? A glimpse of Mona Lisa's smile, that if taken from various perspective it would seem to be always looking at you? How could you distance yourself, if you are what you think?

    Quantum Gravity

    The jump from conventional field theories of point-like objects to a theory of one-dimensional objects has striking implications. The vibration spectrum of the string contains a massless spin-2 particle: the graviton. Its long wavelength interactions are described by Einstein's theory of General Relativity. Thus General Relativity may be viewed as a prediction of string theory!

    Imagine the very canvas is string theories very fabric of the cosmos:)

    This is a visualization of a simulation of a two-dimensional simplicial quantum gravity model. The surface is a dynamical triangulation, that is, as the simulation progresses, the way that the vertices of the triangular lattice are connected is constantly changing.

    When the simulation began, we started with a lattice made of just four triangles, or simplices. Immediately, the computer began building the lattice up by, at random, choosing a triangle, putting a new point in the center and connecting the new point to the corners of the old triangle. Then there were three triangles where there was previously only one. This process was repeated until the lattice contained 30 points and 56 triangles.

    "Dynamical triangulations" and such, that such a painting will explore the greater potential of perception, from varying perspectives?

    The French mathematician Henri Poincaré provided inspiration for both Einstein and Picasso. Einstein read Poincaré's Science and Hypothesis (French edition 1902, German translation 1904) and discussed it with his friends in Bern. He might also have read Poincaré's 1898 article on the measurement of time, in which the synchronization of clocks was discussed--a topic of professional interest to Einstein as a patent examiner. Picasso learned about Science and Hypothesis indirectly through Maurice Princet, an insurance actuary who explained the new geometry to Picasso and his friends in Paris. At that time there was considerable popular fascination with the idea of a fourth spatial dimension, thought by some to be the home of spirits, conceived by others as an "astral plane" where one can see all sides of an object at once. The British novelist H. G. Wells caused a sensation with his book The Time Machine (1895, French translation in a popular magazine 1898-99), where the fourth dimension was time, not space.

    Ps: Please note that some things have been added from the original post to illustrate the idea in terms of "the background" and how this is interpreted in the senses, as a much wider understanding of Gravity in respect used here in the Library.

    What Pattern Emerges

    It is necessary at this time to show that such a procedure evolved here in Dialogos of Eide had to be taken to be interpreted as a an acceptance and assumption of the way the world "is" according to scientific elaborations given in the interpretation of the "back ground."

    For example, the weight of an object may be operationally defined in terms of the specific steps of putting an object on a weighing scale. The weight is whatever results from following the measurement procedure, which can in principle be repeated by anyone. It is intentionally not defined in terms of some intrinsic or private essence. The operational definition of weight is just the result of what happens when the defined procedure is followed. In other words, what's being defined is how to measure weight for any arbitrary object, and only incidentally the weight of a given object.

    When observe and held in face of the scientific valuation and spoken to in the science world, the veritable conceptual acceptance of any model is its amalgamation into the way one would move into the world. This is a bold step, because you have accepted the way in which such a proposal has been put forward to demonstrate how one may now see the world.

    Operational definitions are inherently difficult — arguably, even impossible — to apply to mental entities, because these latter are generally understood to be accessible only to the individual who experiences them and are therefore not independently verifiable. According to this line of thinking, a person's mental image of a brick cannot be operationally defined because it cannot be measured from outside that person's mood. Philosopher Daniel Dennett has argued that first-person operationalism is possible and desirable, using the anthropological version of the scientific method to bring the mind fully into the third-person realm required by science. As part of the Multiple Drafts Model of consciousness, Dennett defines a process he calls heterophenomenology, by which the mental is defined operationally in terms of the observed behavior of the subject.

    Held in relevance to use of the word background it is necessary to consider the depth and potential of the human being in light of the bulk perspective assigned to that background to demonstrate that the depth and generation of the human interaction is more defined by more then just the compartmentalization assigned to human action.

    Ir was necessary in my own mind to recognize the greater foliation of the response to stimuli as a governing factor in the emotive expressions of the human endeavour then just to let it r,main as a consequence without a possible course of direction, as an effect.

    Heterophenomenology ("phenomenology of another not oneself"), is a term coined by Daniel Dennett to describe an explicitly third-person, scientific approach to the study of consciousness and other mental phenomena. It consists of applying the scientific method with an anthropological bend, combining the subject's self-reports with all other available evidence to determine his or her mental state. The goal is to discover how the subject sees the world him- or herself, without taking the accuracy of the subject's view for granted.

    Heterophenomenology is put forth as the alternative to traditional Cartesian phenomenology, which Dennett calls "lone-wolf autophenomenology" to emphasize the fact that it accepts the subject's self-reports as being authoritative. In contrast, heterophenomenology considers the subject authoritative only about how things seem to him or her.

    In other words, heterophenomenology requires us to listen to the subject and take what he or she says seriously, but to also look at everything else available to us, including the subject's bodily responses and environment, and be ready to conclude that the subject is wrong even about his or her own mind. For example, we could determine that the subject is hungry even though he or she doesn't recognize it.

    The key role of heterophenomenology in Dennett's philosophy of consciousness is that it defines all that can be — or needs to be — known about the mind. To quote Dennett, "The total set of details of heterophenomenology, plus all the data we can gather about concurrent events in the brains of subjects and in the surrounding environment, comprise the total data set for a theory of human consciousness. It leaves out no objective phenomena and no subjective phenomena of consciousness."

    Dennett stresses that heterophenomenology does not dismiss the first-person perspective, but rather brackets it so that it can be intersubjectively verified by empirical means, allowing it to be submitted as scientific evidence. This can be seen by how heavily heterophenomenology relies on adopting the intentional stance toward subjects.

    Problem solvers have a way of getting to the heart of the issues, and unfortunately when ones engages competent minds like Peter Woit in the world? Whose sign post is,"anti-string with no explanation"? This is simple in the minds of the general public? It then becomes a rant, without a substantial basis? Why? Because he had no platform with which to refute?

    So this attempt was fruitless, in wondering why strings should not be.

    What I did find viable in looking for myself, is finding out where strings applicable features pervaded and what they were describing. Both bottom up and top down have to find approaches that emerge from a place that asks us to map this progress, and there is only one place that allows me to understand this operation.

    The spectrum.

    When you look at Glast operations this idealization of using the spectrum in cosmological discernibility, helped to clarify why the move of strings to a cosmological operation platform was necessary from a experimental and scientific understanding. Why was this move important?

    It had to do with the amounts of energy needed to explore the principles of reductionism? How could we extend reductionism to a cosmological question about the origins of our beginning? There were no limitations as to the question of the energy that could be displayed for us all to wonder on that cosmological pallete, and here Relativity Ruled.

    While complexity, asks us about the means of what is established in the forms, stands for us in our observations, as existing? Many people feel safe in what they can see?

    I looked for comparative features. Like how ideas could emerge and as a good example of what math could issue from the minds of those whose good observation could speak about natures manifestations.

    How good are the observatory minds of mathematicians? That would systematically describe for us this idealization of quantum reality and Relativity to join in a way that makes sense?

    Macroscopic and microcosm perceptions joined?

    You say Time? Julian Barbour wants to do away with Time? Yet his goal is the same? He calls Time a human construct? What isn't aside from everything else that we don't see? Science reveals a deeper truth?

    Killing Time

    Barbour posits that time is, in fact, an illusion - a measure imposed on the world by humanity. He explains this with the concept of a 'now', which he describes as a snapshot in time - a completely frozen, self-contained instant (much like a Polaroid photograph). Time is simply the measure of the space between two separate and unrelated 'nows.'

    BarryTo offer that I am an engineer and a sculpture with a career of problem solving. To offer that making me understand the final solution is to achieve making it clear to anyone.

    I am somewhat like a philosopher as you are, minus, the engineering, yet I am quite capable of peering past the veil that good minds construct.

    In the end, what is taken with you might be the realization that of all the thought forms we have established and created. The illusion that we move through, hides a deeper truth, and we were immersed within it the whole time. Science, verified the anomalies that we saw?

    How much power then could we grant the mind who escapes this realization, to find that all the thoughts that have ever existed, were weighted with the gravity that held us to earth? That the forms, revealed a deeper realization of their beginnings?

    As the temperature cooled, the solidification was final and so was the idealization that manifested from the idea.

    When is a pipe a pipe? Is a question about what supergravity reveals in the forms manifestation. Crystallization. What pattern emerges?

    Betrayal of Images" by Rene Magritte. 1929 painting on which is written "This is not a Pipe"

    Yet probabilistic in nature, how could such things arrange themselves as they have?

    There is a deeper question here about the reality. If the idea is born in mind how would it not burn up, comparative to the beginning of our universe? Yet nature has supplied a good analogy of bubbles that form, rise to the surface, and this could have been information that arose from the fifth dimension? It all arose form the mind of the subconscious? It was always closer to the source. Why Ramanujan and Einsteins note taking in the subtle realms help to spur the incubation of reality to a deeper level of questions.

    People might say indeed, that this departure point from the sane world of forms, is the moving further into the illusions? But if we cannot find a way to free ourselves, then surely, one will accept the consequences of there reality, as they take it with them?:)

    Also have a look at the comments at "Dialogos of Eide" for consideration.

    An Artistic Valuation of Science

    "With the discovery of sound waves in the CMB, we have entered a new era of precision cosmology in which we can begin to talk with certainty about the origin of structure and the content of matter and energy in the universe-Wayne Hu

    It is really hard for me to know where to begin here. I call this work less then a scientific point of view because it would have been deemed less then desirable measure of the reality around us. Yet, I would have it, that to think in this new way is a better reflection of the inside world that we live, and as a result, reveal the outer reality with which we face daily.

    While I refer to the "background of information" what exactly am I saying? There was a move on my part to allow us to see the world of colour and sound in a new way. Bring the thoughts about science to bear on how this artistic valuation would imbue the thinking mind toward the way colour and sound reveal something unique about the space around us. The space inside of us.

    Now in this exercise it is not necessary for you to have to check the validation of the proposal by science using this method, other then to see the conceptual framework I am pointing to thoughts and emotive valuations in life demonstrated as a bulk space. This implies that electromagnetic waves and gravity had been joined, and that such a things was in my mind to consider this under this artistic valuation I have assigned it.

    So what has to happen here is that I bring some of the things that were instrumental in helping me to form this conceptual framework.

    For example, in 1704 Sir Isaac Newton struggled to devise mathematical formulas to equate the vibrational frequency of sound waves with a corresponding wavelength of light. He failed to find his hoped-for translation algorithm, but the idea of correspondence took root, and the first practical application of it appears to be the clavecin oculaire, an instrument that played sound and light simultaneously. It was invented in 1725. Charles Darwin’s grandfather, Erasmus, achieved the same effect with a harpsichord and lanterns in 1790, although many others were built in the intervening years, on the same principle, where by a keyboard controlled mechanical shutters from behind which colored lights shne. By 1810 even Goethe was expounding correspondences between color and other senses in his book, Theory of Color. Pg 53, The Man Who Tasted Shapes, by Richard E. Cytowic, M.D.

    It is important to realize that the way this post is to unfold has to maintain the consistency with which I was introduced, so that you understand that what I avail in the Colour of Gravity is elucidated upon.

    Louis-Bertrand Castel.
    L’Optique des Colours, fondée sur les simples observations, & tournée sur-tout à la practique de la peinture, de la teinture & autres arts coloristes. Paris: Braisson, 1740.

    Like Goethe, Louis-Bertrand Castel (1688-1751) opposed Newtonian color theory. However, unlike Goethe, who had thought that Newton’s experiments were flawed, Castel rejected experimental science altogether. Castel supported the views of René Descartes, a French philosopher who distrusted sense perception and advocated science based on logical thought rather than on empirical observation. “Newton,” Castel complained, “reduced man to using only his eyes.”

    Castel himself theorized that vibrations produced color, just as they produced sounds. He concluded, therefore, that colors and sounds were analogous, which led him to attempt to develop the “ocular harpsichord” described in this book. The harpsichord was supposed to display colors in correspondence with particular notes. He had originally meant for the harpsichord to remain theoretical, but the skepticism of his critics caused him to spend thirty years trying to construct such an instrument.

    Before I made way to the views/world of scientists who had been travelling scientific routes, I was developing from a psychological standpoint, a "multiversal unconscious world" that did not make much sense? It may have seemed "not rational" to people and philosophically might be held in low stature with what we had wanted of any good scientist. And then, to have it linked with all the deficiencies of the uneducated lay person, without a proper foundation, and within context of those developing sciences. That was me.

    Rimimgton's Colour Organ

    Prof Rimington

    A Wagnerian trumpet blast, he suggested, might be accompanied by intense orange effects, "which palpitates with the harmonic colours corresponding to a subordinate passage on some of the other orchestral instruments. The blast ceases; there is a faint echo of it upon the violins, while the screen pulsates with pale lemon and saffron hardly discernable. Again comes the blast of trumpets, and once more the screen flames with orange modulations".

    Professor Rimington's home demonstrations must have been unforgettable. The Colour Organ was some ten feet high, with a five octave keyboard which was similar to that of a church organ, being controlled by stops. A line of "colour keys" was situated above the conventional (sound) keyboard, and connected to a lens-and-filters system, so that "colour" was "played". Best effects were secured when the sound and colour were played from separate keyboards.

    So it was hard for me to know how I was developing my "intuitive recognition of first principles" with seeing developing insights to the concepts. I moved ahead in science to "thread history" with the developed views we have of science today. I recognized the experimental association with "other things," that we might have compared to that particular experiment.

    Toposense(Sklar) as some feature of the interaction of the inner and outer world constantly "exchanging information" but never really defining the line that can be called "the departure from each." This was aided in a psychological sense by understanding "liminocentric structures" that could identify consciousness within this aspect of the larger universal context. "Geometrically defined," as this point within the circle. Yet focused in "the centre" we lost track of the "wider universal."

    How much do we all know already? This is a question that raises the idea of what already exists within the framework of the sensorium? As a multifaceted approach to recognition of any "condensible view" about which we see "in front of us" and not just as the objectively defined the human being reasoned. But as one whose memory had been induced at a "emotive level of recognition."

    How were they to remember? All experience had to make an impression and how deep it was, to show us well, you were able to draw this to the surface as an immediate, without any time at all in recognition.

    The Colour of Gravity

    So as strange as it may seem, I was already looking for what Newton was trying to do even before becoming aware of what was unleashed by Richard E. Cytowic, M.D. in the paragraph above.

    I was impressed by the "thought experiment" of Einstein's valuation of time in regards to the Pretty Girl and the Hot Stove. It was the the idea that duration of time could have ever been assigned to the experience of the observer, and it's effect on time. Now I have heard Sean Carroll not liking this comparison from what I understood from reading his opinion and may of thought it feeble in it's attempt? Looking at it from my perspective I couldn't help but see reality having a colourful disposition to it.

    While the views above were "mechanistic attempts at joining colour and sound," the emotive views developed from experiencing were indeed "impressionable?" Now what source these physiological repositories and I would have gone one step further to marry the idea of the emotive state to "colour enhance experiencing" as a validation of the duration of time in living our realities?

    So one saids that all the ideas of colour in it's sequencing would be of value and consistent if we were all the same? Then it would mean there was some consistency in how we could interpret this colour to mean....all emotive states of being will have there association? In the value of greed, hate, or love, happiness, and we would say how "pink love" is or how "blue the mood," or how black and dreary something could be?

    Since the Lab model is a three dimensional model, it can only be represented properly in a three dimensional space.

    All these emotive colours of gravity would then mean a vast difference in opinion from one person to the next, so what use? Just the fact maybe that every impressionable experience will make it's impact within the fabric of the brain? Will become your repository from which you will draw? Will become your value on life?

    As we increase our knowledge of the genetic, neural and cognitive aspects of synaesthesia, we will find that we are beginning to understand the brain more completely. Researchers may wish that they possessed synaesthesia, but being able to explore a new and strange trait that may hold the answers to many fundamental questions is reward enough.

    Kandinsky, himself an accomplished musician, once said Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul. The concept that color and musical harmony are linked has a long history, intriguing scientists such as Sir Isaac Newton. Kandinsky used color in a highly theoretical way associating tone with timbre (the sound's character), hue with pitch, and saturation with the volume of sound. He even claimed that when he saw color he heard music.

    Over the past 35 years I have spent a considerable time doing my own research. Learning to express myself, has been very difficult to say the least.

    It is while doing this research that things seem to "overlap" as I ventured forward and finding examples, as if "analogies in nature" has been the "metaphorical struggle" that I use in "word use and comparison."

    Creating the Language

    It has accumulated from that research and integration within myself. So it is like creating and learning a "new language," while most of the time I come across as not being understood. That has been "my struggle" to get people "to see" what I am seeing? I don't get "images" in my head, but the accumulation of everything has been transposed into the way I express myself here in this blog.

    It is true without lying, certain and most true. That which is Below is like that which is Above and that which is Above is like that which is Below to do the miracles of the Only Thing. And as all things have been and arose from One by the mediation of One, so all things have their birth from this One Thing by adaptation. Sir Isaac Newton

    If I may by example give here "the idea of perfecting the self" in regards to Sir Isaac Newton. If he were to have been a alchemist, and persevered in his "psychological struggles," then what form would all his "struggles in self" have exemplified, if he "accomplished those parts of himself."

    The "colour" of his being, and the alchemical relation to psychological changes? These alway existed and "as yet" had no name?

    So from whence comes all "this energy of expression", to have been displayed as it has? In all the avenues of our "selves," that our experience has allowed that energy to manifest "this way" and "that way," and we have this "unique individual" before us, as you, or I, and "the many?" You "control the color or not" or, is it a "consequence" of this physiological process?

    Smilack belongs to the group of one to four percent of people worldwide with synesthesia, the neurological mixing of the senses. No two synesthetes have exactly the same perceptual experiences. Many perceive each number, letter of the alphabet, or day of the week as a different color. For others, sounds from the environment are always accompanied by moving geometric patterns in their "mind's eye."

    Smilack has a rare form of synesthesia that involves all of her senses—the sound of one female voice looks like a thin, bending sheet of metal, and the sight of a certain fishing shack gives her a brief taste of Neapolitan ice cream—but her artistic leanings are shared by many other synesthetes. Scientists estimate that synesthesia is about seven times more common in poets, novelists, and artists than in the rest of the population. (Some of the most famous examples include artists David Hockney and Wassily Kandinsky and writer Vladimir Nabokov.)

    Marcia Smilack:
    When you take a photograph of a reflection, you must compose your image upside down -- an odd and difficult task. Eventually, it is simply easier to give in and rely on other parts of your mind to compose the image. So, in an oxymoronic way, seeing in reflection "forces" you to let go, to trust what you feel.

    Second, these images opened a unique window into the mind of the researcher. Remember the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle that states every object observed is changed by the experience? Well, I am the voice from the other side, the voice of the object that was watching them the whole time they were watching me. I have learned that we change each other through our interchanges. And while it is hard for me to quantify what I have learned from them, it is a great deal. Their questions and responses provide a framework onto which I can project what I intuitively know but do not usually speak.

    She has many wonderful links that I had accumulated, and more. Also check out the extensive amount of links associated with the Synesthesia Resource Center on Patricia Lynne Duffy's book web page.

    Calculus, or Feynman's Toy Models?

    Some, who possess what researchers call "conceptual synesthesia," see abstract concepts, such as units of time or mathematical operations, as shapes projected either internally or in the space around them

    So, is it out of necessity that we can "create the language" necessary to view the reality around us as it is, and how shall we do that? Sir Isaac Newton created "Calculus."

    So with this "unique perspective of synesthesia," how shall you give to the world from what began in self, and we have this "multitude of choices" as to the "fabrications" we may use from our "artistic creative design?" No choice, synesthesia just is?

    Sometimes I relate the experience of reading a book, to what is "consumed one day" was by design, our place in the scheme of understanding things. Where we have "this experience" that we can correlate. So "it" makes sense. If a person with synesthesia was to read my blog, how much more would they take from my writing, then one without?

    It is no different then our understanding of the science of things. Life can seem "mythic in proportion,", until, we understood the deeper part of the "design of reality?"


    Nature, so endlessly creative, has managed things so that each of us, hosts of synesthesia or not, perceives a slightly different world... a world colored by our one-of-a-kind pattern of neurons and experiences" -- Patricia Lynne Duffy
