THE NATURE OF PHYSICAL AND OBJECTIVE REALITY:
The way light performs is an indication of the way we relate to a math-field that defines and supports us. I suspect that the reason light exists for both wave and particle calculations is because light is an expression of the relation of each perspective of consciousness to a math-field (or a series of "reality cones") that happens to define and support it.
The Equational Nature of our math-field is such that, for every particle, there seems to be an anti-particle at some level of entanglement. For every manifestation by a particle, there seems to be a coordinate manifestation by a polarity-entangled co-particle. If you stop a particle enough to coordinate a measure of it, you induce a coordinate and contemporaneous expression of its equation-balancing twin.
Suppose you stop a pair of co-particles and do not yet take a measure of either. If you try to contrive so that a measure of one will entail a measure of the other as an opposite, then a "trickster effect" may block you. If you try to contrive so that a measure of one will entail a measure of the other as a duplicate, then, again, a "trickster effect" may block you. So, is the "spooky trickster effect" on the twin particle pre-determined, or is it contemporaneously established with the effect that is imposed on the original particle? Einstein and Bohr debated whether randomness concerning quanta entanglements was real or only apparent.
Neither. Ultimately, the ideas of randomness and predetermination are inadequate to the task. Because the "particle itself," as Substance, considered apart from Consciousness and Information, does not objectively exist. Rather, its manifest existence for interfunctioning with me is dependent on its interfunctioning with the "Reality Cone" (light cone) that happens to be shared by myself and all other beings with whom I happen to be in potential communication.
Bohr was correct, in that no Reality Cone is pre-determined. But he was correct in that, only because both he an Einstein were incorrect in presuming that a Reality Cone exists independently, objectively, by itself.
Einstein: "I like to think the Moon is there (continues to exist) even if (when) I am not looking at it." Myself: Yes, the Moon continues to exist even when I'm not looking at it. But only because other perspectives with which I share my Reality Cone, with whose experiences those of my own are reconciled, happen to continue to be "looking" at it (feeling its effects) -- even when I am not. If no perspective of Consciousness were feeling (or potentially measuring the effects of) the Moon, then the Moon could not intelligently or rationally be said then and there to be existentially manifest.
So, each Reality Cone unfolds as it is reconciled with the interfunctionings of such perspectives of Consciousness and Information as happen to share in it. And the way it will unfold cannot be perfectly pre-known or pre-set by any mortal perspective. Rather, a meta-process beyond our ken coordinates and reconciles all manifest interfunctionings within our Reality Cone. We part-icipate with it, and our apprehensions and appreciations (prayers and observations) factor with it, but we do not have means for controlling, confining, or measuring it -- except indirectly, intuitively, empathetically. The math must always balance, but potential fluxes enjoy general parameters of freedom -- so long as they remain tethered to factors for keeping the math field balanced.
IOW, we, and no-thing with which we manifestly relate, is entirely causal to our unfoldings, as opposed to being merely correlative and appreciative. So, events as manifested are not knowable by us to be pre-caused, nor are they ultimately knowable by us to be contemporaneously or intertwinedly caused. For a mortal to anguish whether events are "really" first caused, pre caused, chaotically random, or participatorily chosen tends to be idle. Rather, each way of modeling tends to enjoy its season and purpose.
Ultimately ("really"), it must be enough to appreciate that what supports us is a godhead, whose aspects present to us in Consciousness, Substance, and Information. We part-icipate with the godhead, via our prayers (apprehensions), praising observations (appreciations), and good faith (good will, spiritual insight, innate empathy, generally intuitive sense of beingness, and moral higher-mindedness).
Substance (the Moon) does not exist objectively apart from Consciousness (observation) and Information (accumulation of maths). But neither do Consciousness and Information exist apart from Substance.
Character of Mind or Consciousness: Whatever self-identifies to take a stand (adopt a perspective) thereby takes a manifested measurement.
Nature of Substance: Substance is the thing or body that is measured, apart from its math value (math field), and apart from the conscious perspective that apprehends it as Substance.
Math of Information: Whatever remains fuzzy and itself unreduced to manifest measure and appreciation remains part of the math-field.
The character of an Unchanging-Changer (Consciousness) reconciles all that measurably unfolds out of potentiality to experientially manifested observation and participatory appreciation (Substance) -- out of no-thing more than a field of math (Information). The eternal abiding of the Trinity is unchanging. Yet, the Trinity changes in regard to the perceptions we experience in respect of how it presents to us -- in aspects that flux among Consciousness, Substance, and Information (CSI). The Kaleidescope remains the same. But the way we interfunction with it changes.
FAITH: What presently fluxes how the math field is experienced to unfold amounts to meta-level reconciliations of then-and-there feedback concerning the collective store of all the observations, apprehensions, and appreciations of all perspectives of Consciousness that happen to share a Reality Cone. Each perspective must and does rationalize as if it alone determines (causes) its reactions to how the Reality Cone is presented to it. The math must always balance, but potential fluxes enjoy general parameters of freedom -- so long as they remain tethered to factors for keeping the math field balanced.
ORIGINAL CREATION AND BIG BANG: Was there really a singular originating event or big bang? Or is it only that every that every perspective that happens to share any overlapping cone or point of view necessarily rationalizes as if there were a beginning point in measurable time and space that renormalizes to the first appearance of the Reality Cone in which it happens to share?
FREEDOM, DIGNITY, AND SPIRITUALITY: Our future will entail more respect for spirituality, or it will entail destruction on a scale beyond reckoning.
IMAGINATION AND CONCEPTUALIZATION: "Dark" energy and matter may be conceptualized as that which comprises all the generally measurable aspects of the math-field that are not precisely measurable or provable between individual perspectives of Consciousness. Dark energy and matter is that which cannot be entirely renormalized to the beginning point of a particular perspective's Reality Cone.
REAL FORMS AND PHYSICAL REALITY: For pragmatic purposes, we can tinker out ways to refer to a "same line." Even though such line does not, as a thing in itself, exist. And even though no precise or exact renormalization of such line is possible for us. However, the "same" line may be differently long, straight, or curved, depending on each perspective's point of view, relative motion, and interpretive experience. There may not "really exist" any re-normalizeable "same line" to measure. There may simply abide fluxing, nodal overlaps among perspectives of Mind. The only "real" synthesis for the straight line may abide with some thing or quality of reconciling Holism -- whose essence is beyond our ken.
THE CLOUD -- SPIRITUAL DIGNITY AND FREEDOM: How can a civilization on a "physical world" remain based in freedom and dignity, once too many individuals acquire knowledge and skills for the absolute destruction of the shared "physical world"? As knowledge increases for mind manipulation, and as skill increases for the destruction of civilizations, ecosystems, biology systems, and physical worlds, must not survival require increases in monitoring, regulating, and strait-jacketing? Can virtual worlds, cyborgism, and transhumanism provide ways to phase beyond skill of destruction, towards advancement and preservation of spiritual freedom and dignity? Maybe.
CONSCIOUS FEEDBACK: At some level of conceptualization, cells and fractals that comprise every pattern that through feedback persevere through space-time against changes in their exterior environment have been adopted to some level of feeding-back conscious identity. At some level of feedback beyond mortal analysis, there is hovered, rooted, bonded or entailed to every pattern that manifests and exhibits sensate consciousness some level of identity that apprehends fluxes among Substance, Information, and Consciousness. The fluxes are coordinate with consciousness that perseveres concerning each such pattern, even if such consciousness is not caused by the pattern itself.
