Matthew Forrest: Linear time is an illusion

July 20, 2021 Leave a comment

Great video Matthew. I agree mostly, but I don’t think that we need to conclude that linear time is (only) an 𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣, any more than we can conclude that photons are 𝒏𝒐𝒕 an illusion.


I see illusion itself as more illusory, a function of the perceptual sense of realism which is a hierarchical, power-law relation across multiple modes and scales of perceptual access.


For example, in the perceptual reality of all small flying insects such as a mosquito, the surface tension of water allows one to stand on top of a pond. The world at that scale is just a different world than it is at the scale of a human body.


I propose that in addition to having access to different qualities of the exterior (seeming) world by virtue of that world’s body size scale differences, mosquito experience also likely includes access to a corresponding set of interior (seeming) features (such as sensory and perceptual qualities) that human experience does not. The mosquito may not experience the world in anything like the stunning degree of aesthetic richness that human consciousness affords.


The mosquito’s life may be devoid of deep pain and pleasure as we know them, of a sense of self as separate from all of mosquito-kind, etc. It’s a different game of life at that scale – possibly more about geometry of feelings rather than the geometry of crystal clear objects we can touch and see with human scale sense.


Our scope of access changes as we grow and age, but also remains the same as far as it remains the experience of an individual human being, which is divided out of a larger collective experience of family, species, order, class, phylum, kingdom, etc. I propose that experience goes beyond biological kingdoms even, and into geo-chemical and astro-nuclear scales of 𝒓𝒆𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆 size and relative sample frequency rate.


It makes sense to me that because perception or consciousness is necessarily and literally 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧 than reality, and includes sole access to all facts and fictions, facts are literally a localized/localizing subset of universal fiction rather than the other way around.


What we perceive to be stable facts (and which 𝙖𝙧𝙚 stable facts 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚, physical constants etc,) can be understood as established, ongoing fact-fiction experiences of a greater or lesser scale of significance than our own ongoing fact-fictions.

I propose that the relation of the scales of significance are the basis of the perceptual quality of realism, as well as gravity, both of which are the same power law relation of universal perception only interiorized and exterioirzed respectively.


We can have dreams that are more realistic or less realistic than our waking experience, but within any given dream or period of waking awareness, we can accept any degree of strangeness and surreality as factual reality. Only the experience of waking up, which is a perceptual shift in perceptual context, can change the relations to cast one set of experiences as dream and another as reality.


If you never wake up from a dream, that dream is your real life. The only difference is that real life is a dream that shares more context of common sense (sense that is literally common across more relative scales and sample rate frequencies, modalities, and quantities of individualized experiences).

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.

The Universe Has No Purpose?

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.
