Möbius Ouroboros

  • Reality Loops Around
    • Consciousness develops from existence then forgets, crumbles and starts over
    • ø to ♾ and back again
    • #oe
  • Start anywhere along the chain of meta-development:
    • life
      • having the desire and ability to choose
    • resonance
      • witnessing the impact of our choices in order to inform the next ones
    • meaning
      • directing our choices toward a particular sense of desired resonance
    • evolution
      • containing many meanings in order to persist as the world changes
    • knowing
      • effortless recall of evolved, meaningful, resonant states of relation
    • CNXNS
      • the directed pursuit of knowing to resolve innate, default ignorance
    • understanding
      • a humbling breadth of knowledge, returning the learner to child mind
    • wisdom
      • a depth of understand that keeps one floating at the surface
    • self
      • a drop of the ocean and the whole ocean in a single drop
    • ø
      • empty set, null set, nada, nothing, no-thing, what's inside a point
      • nihil, nadir, zero, zed, 0
      • everything, the second half of Œ, th-th-th-that's-all-folkth, omni, pan, toto
      • all possibilities swimming in a formless, boundless, timeless cloud nowhere and everywhere waiting to collapse into manifested experience at a moment's notice by any conscious observer in any plane of existence
      • a.k.a. the source
    • existence
      • the veil between what could be and what is
      • does essence precede existence or vice versa? let the French existentialists debate this while we go on like chickens born of eggs made by chickens
    • oneness
      • at first all that is is all that could be in one big "Hmmmmm"
      • liang the loop encircling the Tao
    • ignorance
      • the loop leaves space and nothing but
    • asking
      • what am I? the questions begin with wonder
    • relativity
      • answers and questions arise from relation
    • comparison
      • big defines small by comparison
    • learning
      • commuting relations enriches the tapestry
    • quality
    • value
      • the presence of multiple qualities provides an opportunity for preference
      • e.g., too hot, not wet enough, over fed
    • striving
      • value judgment brings lack and abundance
    • quantity
    • complexity
      • counting this and counting that carry different meaning
      • scales often differ and overlap in layers and spheres of complexity
      • see also:: Bruce Lipton's theory of life as enveloping membranes
    • experiment
      • understanding many layers of complexity at once requires a fictive space
      • ceteris paribus, holding all other pieces equal or steady, what is happening?
    • spacetime
      • any experiment takes place in spacetime
      • but space is time and vice versa, so which whenwhere were we when we were where?
    • parameters
      • many dimensions may blossom by setting a few integral parameters
        • like the ratio of a circle's perimeter to its cross-section aka π
        • or the gravitational constant we observe the keeps the heavens swinging
        • how fast does light go?
    • possibilities
      • once the basics are twiddled, we can open up the field of imagination
    • rulesets
      • a few baseline rules might help this universe to be a keeper
      • do we have non-being and being? how many turns do you get?
    • big bang
      • blammo. let's go. let it unfold.
    • vibrations
      • with all the calibrating we did before the bang, things are pretty well figured
        • we can now sit back and watch the show
    • events
      • the show is an N-dimensional network of events all interconnected and cocreating
    • data
      • the events generate data as we observe them
      • endless tiny yesses and nos
    • randomness
      • slicing across the field, we encounter a senseless mishmash of data
      • without knowing the observers, choosers, actors, it seems random
    • information
      • in truth every actor, observer, chooser is neatly in form
      • those in form set to work shaping what is not in form in the domain-of-possibility
    • energy
      • the work of shaping possibility into reality is fueled by energy
      • energy can be collected and dispersed according to intention and attention
    • matter
      • clusters of concentrated energy become matter, storing potential energy
      • these chunks tend to think they are important
    • cosmos
      • between matter and energy we pretty much entail the cosmos
      • and we elect to play a small part in the cosmic play
    • life
      • wherein we adopt the ability to choose, free will
      • which is enacted by intention that follows our attention
