The Multisense Realism view of time contains both A-Series and B-Series time as emergent perspectives within the larger schema of nested/diffracted frames of perception (“Now”s).

This Is Not A Pipe (But it is a triangle)

October 25, 2017 Leave a comment

rgb-triangle

The physical semiconductor mechanism which computes this triangle contains nothing triangular.

The neurological tissue and the patterns of their chemical excitation which correlate with the experience of seeing a triangle also contain nothing triangular.

The triangle exists because there is a visible phenomenon presented. The visible phenomenon is not a concrete physical object, nor is it an abstract mathematical concept.

The common sense which unites the semiconductor, the neuron, the triangle, and the mathematical/geometric model of triangularity is not a sense which can be physically located in public space, nor can it be logically demonstrated as a proof within the intellect. The common sense which underlies them all is the aesthetic presentation itself.

Life

When we say ‘life’ we conflate two different phenomena. The meaningful phenomenon is the experience of mortality – feeling contrasting qualities of experience such as thriving and struggling, desperation and mastery related to being invested in a physical form that grows, reproduces, and dies.

The other phenomenon is biology, which is simply the tendency for material substances to accumulate in ways which metabolize as growing, reproducing objects (molecules, cells, bodies).

The first phenomenon is an elaboration of consciousness. Mortality enriches the qualities of experience tremendously, allowing for much more intensity of sensation and immersion. When you think that any moment could be your last, you are very motivated to pay attention.

In my view, the second phenomenon is basically a reflection of pre-biotic (immortal) consciousness which has been truncated into tactile-visible object sensations for the purpose of creating a stage upon which the drama of mortality can be acted out. Matter is life before biology, operating at perceptual sampling rates much faster and much slower than animal consciousness.

Proof Against Materialism

modus-tollens

1. Modus Ponens: The brain generates consciousness and the brain is physical, so consciousness must be physical.

2. Modus Tollens: Consciousness transcends what can be explained by physical interaction, and the brain is only physical, therefore consciousness must not be only physical.

A scientific approach must explain why one is more sensible than the other.  Here is one such explanation:

Hypothesis: If the Modus Tollens case is true, then consciousness may generate matter.

Experiment: Can consciousness generate matter?

Go to sleep. Dream. If you can dream of a physical world without realizing that you’re dreaming, then we know that either consciousness can and does produce all perceptions of ‘matter’, or, consciousness is the sole epistemological source to discern the difference between ‘real matter’ and a hallucination. Either way it is the same conclusion:

Consciousness can produce the experience we know as physical matter, but physical matter has no plausible mechanism or justification for producing phenomenal qualities.

Aesthetic Universe

I use the word ‘aesthetic‘ in a universal way. Local anesthetic numbs sensation and general anesthetic suspends consciousness, so to me, existence itself is an irreducibly aesthetic phenomenon.

The Universe Has No Purpose?

August 11, 2017 Leave a comment

The physical universe appears purposeless because it’s only a stage upon which experiences play out. The rest of the universe is not made of forms and functions and driven by entropy, but rather made of participatory perceptions and driven by the opposite of entropy – significance. The universe is overflowing with significance. From spectacular aesthetics to mind-bogglingly sophisticated mechanisms. Our personal life is filled with purposeful agendas competing for our attention. Some agendas are powerful because they are urgently asserted from our bodies, from society, or from some immediate circumstance that we confront. Others are asserted with subtlety over years…a barely perceptible theme that connects the dots over a lifetime but which shapes our destiny or career.

I can't believe it!
