Moving through empty space,
living within the void

at the mercy of science and gravity
our feet hold firm to this planet,

providing shelter, food, water
and the fragile recipes for life.

Perhaps travelling back in time will become part of our reality, if has not already happened.

“It’s one of those things that we take for granted—time moves forward and never backward. But did you ever stop to wonder why it moves in one direction, as opposed to the other? The question continues to stump physicists. After all, there are certain physical processes that are actually time-reversible—they look the same no matter which way you run them.”

A summary of the proposed 10-dimensional universe and theory suggests at each. Full article is here:

  1. First dimension – length
  2. Second dimension – height
  3. Third dimension – depth
  4. Fourth dimension – time
  5. Fifth dimension – we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones.
  6. Sixth dimension – we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one.
  7. Seventh dimension – you have access to the possible worlds that start with different initial conditions.
  8. Eighth dimension – again gives us a plane of such possible universe histories, each of which begins with different initial conditions and branches out infinitely.
  9. Ninth dimension – we can compare all the possible universe histories, starting with all the different possible laws of physics and initial conditions.
  10. Tenth and final dimension, we arrive at the point at which everything possible and imaginable is covered.

Reason & Existenz

Metaphysics as a way of thinking suffers from confusion with superstition.

As I have noted before, superstition encompasses more than the narrow notion thrown around by the “educated” where a person has irrational beliefs about a relationship between an imagined cause and a perceived effect.

A major issue in terms of the misuse of the metaphysical is that folks-at-large will take whatever paucity of information they have and combine this with whatever bit of speculation that will allow them to comprise make-do convictions.

This is not thinking as metaphysics. Rather,

Partial information + certain conviction = superstitious answer.

The metaphysical by definition goes beyond the empirical. We can think of it as taking what we can demonstrate about nature up to this point and then going down a logical channel of thought from now/here. This can take us to a before or an origin (ARCHE) or to an after…

Our Holographic Universe –A New Theory of Space-Time (2013 Most Popular)

Researchers at the University of Southampton have taken a significant step in a project to unravel the secrets of the structure of our Universe. One of the main recent advances in theoretical physics is the holographic principle. According to this idea, our Universe may be thought of as a hologram and we would like to understand how to formulate the laws of physics for such a holographic Universe.

A paper released June 2013 by Professor Skenderis and Dr Marco Caldarelli from the University of Southampton, Dr Joan Camps from the University of Cambridge and Dr Blaise Goutéraux from the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, Sweden published in Physical Review D, makes connections between negatively curved space-time and flat space-time.

The paper AdS/Ricci-flat correspondence and the Gregory-Laflamme instability specifically explains what is known as the Gregory Laflamme instability, where certain types of black holes break up into smaller black holes when disturbed – rather like a thin stream of water breaking into little droplets when you touch it with your finger. This black hole phenomenon has previously been shown to exist through computer simulations and this work provides a deeper theoretical explanation.

Space-time is usually understood to describe space existing in three dimensions, with time playing the role of a fourth dimension and all four coming together to form a continuum, or a state in which the four elements can’t be distinguished from each other.

Flat space-time and negative space-time describe an environment in which the Universe is non-compact, with space extending infinitely, forever in time, in any direction. The gravitational forces, such as the ones produced by a star, are best described by flat-space time. Negatively curved space-time describes a Universe filled with negative vacuum energy. The mathematics of holography is best understood for negatively curved space-times.

Professor Skenderis has developed a mathematic model which finds striking similarities between flat space-time and negatively curved space-time, with the latter however formulated in a negative number of dimensions, beyond our realm of physical perception.


If we use logic to define the Nothing, then a response must include logic.

If I asked God – “Where did you come from, how did you get here?”. I would expect them to respond – “From nothing”. This I understand and this makes sense to me when I think about what is it that we float within, what comprises the space. Take away everything that does not “matter”: everything created by “man”, the dull matter, the negativity, the objects whose gravity pulls and affects other objects, what is left? Nothing.

Now, does the Nothing lie within anything? How did Nothing arrive, where did it come from, or is it the result of removing everything?

The God I imagine, has no gender, has no voice, and does not breath. They speak through light as energy and through the thoughts we entertain and are aware of, from the universe we are aware of.

If there is only nothing, has always been nothing, how did biological processes and planetary processes start? Where did the energy and fuel originate from? What first ignited the nuclear fusion process within a suns core, to begin heat and energy production that radiates outward, into solar flares, and across the universe?

How to explain an expanding universe, a scientific and logical process, with a beginning, but unknown ending? Could this eventually wrap into itself, the beginning, and start again, so the end then becomes the beginning? Is there a limit to the expansion, such as a thinning liquid or a rubber band, where the gravitational pull from the “central” location eventually retreats and pulls the matter back?

If the universe is expanding, what is it expanding into? Is it within nothing? Is the nothing a container for something? In this case it contains everything, the universe, all matter, all light, all dark, and all energy. Is nothing simply the space fabric, stretched infinitely, and the universe, as defined from the big bang, is expanding within that?

If time is infinite, and is only used as a point of reference to another object or event, the soul and energy are trapped within a finite being, a finite vessel with a start and an end – human beings. How did this infinite energy become trapped? There are so many things within the nothing, where did they originate from? There are many finite systems, processes, biologics that may or may not contain awareness, that exist within the infinite or the nothing. Where did they originate from and what is their purpose?

What thing beyond this, more powerful is able to collectively pull energy together, within a vessel? How to capture energy from nothing? What put the first subatomic thing within the nothing to create something?

Do they exist to comfort those without an awareness, that need something tangible, something warm, with life, anchored to the earth, to cope?

This can explain the light and energy that exists, and has always existed, and further extended to energy does not disappear, it is constant moving, inhabited, affecting other bodies, and always exists.

If it is assumed that Nothing has always existed, what started the biological processes?

I am going to post some pieces about the blending of quantum mechanics and spirituality and how I believe they need each other, and neither side can exist/breath without the other.

It seems I have been lost in the ether again.  The weather here has been chaotic, oscillating within days between mid-summer and early fall.  My thoughts seem to follow this pattern and are in synch with the weather, as my writing has gone from productive to nothing and everything in between.

Recent events, including a minor car accident, and a cursory glance at the headlines this morning, have further cemented the mantra “take nothing for granted”.  It does not matter if you believe in re-incarantion, re-distribution of energy, karma, various laws of physics, quantum mechanics, or the beautiful and sublime blending of science and spirituality, now is what we have, and are the cards we get to play with.  Make the best hand possible.

This includes having peanut M&Ms for breakfast, even the unnatual glow-in-dark yellow ones.
