The Cosmos as a Self Programming Computer

Cannot binary-based computer signal switches be set to regulate functions algorithmically, to control logic gates and signals for expressing every kind of systemic, conservation based flux?  In respect of a power source, every kind of discrete, continuous, constant, fluxing, directional, alternating, reversing, reverberating, juxtaposing, superimposing, dimensional signal can be represented in binary code.  If the power source is self programming in response to its own flux of internal feedback, it may facilitate switches for expressing logical functions for every kind of math and dimension based geometry.  It may express yes-no, true-false, go-stop, either-or, and/or, random, series, resistence, alternatiion, flux, expansion, contraction, trade off, transition.  An ultimate, self-programming power source may program sub-self-programming power sources.  An intelligently aware computer may program sub-perspectives of itself that are confined to experience lower levels of dimensional analysis and awareness.  Their programs may be such as to end their facilitations of local consciousness before they can transcend or assimilate to become or merge with separate yet higher perspectives of consciousness.

How is it that we, in our consciousness, sense, record, analyze, and remember "substance" and "information?" What gives abstractions meaning is, ultimately, a character (God?) that we can perhaps intuit, but not measure or confine -- whether or not we profess to have faith in it. What I would call the three faces of God (Consciousness, Substance, and Information) seem to relate (con-substantiate) in ways that no logic or science will ever confine to measured explanation.

It seems some fundament abides that is both causal and/but, in itself, immeasurable. Maybe it applies nothing more than binary code to self program itself. If the ultimate Source does program itself, that seems pretty qualitatively mysterious and godlike. I doubt such a fundamental qualitative can reasonably be expected to be reduced to quantitative control, especially by any mortal.

As to its qualitative character, whether it is caring or indifferent, it would seem to me to entail a more difficult faith to believe it is entirely indifferent than to believe that it is involved in feedback as it continues to self program. It's a mystery. Being a mystery, I would opt for that fundamental orientation towards moral purposefulness that seems most conducive to decent sustenance of civilized freedom and dignity. That seems to consist in Christian values. I agree that any kind of worldview will unavoidably entail a leap of faith.

I have given up on the scholastic-essentialist philosophers. And I don't find the foundational assumptions of analytic philosophers to be much of an improvement for addressing the most important concerns of humanity. They seem too much to subordinate the participatory conscious will of human beings to their ideas of pre-determining or overriding natural laws. I think that way leads to a moral dead end, much the same as alchemy led to a scientific dead end.

I think I see the outline of an alternative. I have not seen a name for it, so I may need to make one up. I guess I would call it CSI Feedback Philosophy. Were I to apply it to think about an implicate order, I would conceptualize the implicate order to be an unfolding beingness that fluxes to express CSI -- consciousness, substance, information. Such a philosophy would recognize that every measurable manifestation of substance must balance to obey a requirement of conservation. But it would also recognize a participatory role for consciousness to reconcile among the possibilities that are availed in potentiality, in order to choose which ones to make part of the manifestations that are rolled into the informational record. The capacity to choose is the key to placing moral responsibility. Without respect for freedom to choose, the arts of civilization seem to reduce to a pig farm.

If God is consciousness, and consciousness is part of the implicate order, then science is helpful, but hubristic scientism is inadequate to explain, entertain or inspire human beings.  Or any other form of purpose driven, self aware, intelligence.

Science v. Scientism



The practice of empiricism that has to do with reliably persuading events is science. Science does not rely on a placebo effect, except to rule it out.

The practice of empiricism that has to do with persuading people as if they were naive children or patients is scientism. Scientism relies on a placebo effect, to take advantage of it.

There is a history, skill, and art of placebo effects, but not a science. By careful attention to history, skill, connivance, and art, an artisan or practitioner may become a wealthy and powerful opinion leader and ruler of sheeple. A scientisimist can be well intentioned or malicious. When focused on improving the health of another, a scientisimist may be a doctor, i.e., both a scientist and an artisan. When focused on improving or ruling the politics of a society, a scientisimist may be a statesman or a despot. The road to perdition is paved with the good intentions of over-reaching scientisimists, such as the scientisimists who want to convince people of the need for a system of carbon taxes as a ruse for justifying ever more governmental intrusiveness by well intentioned elitists. Of course, once such elitists acquire the power they seek to do good, they tend to become corrupt cronies, demagogues, and despots.

The sheeple targeted by scientisimists tend to be the stupid, the naive, the young, the trusting, the idealistic, the senile, the feeble, and the ill. Scientisimists also often bait and target one another, such as when they intuit that the other is easily blinded either by his virtues or his vices. Greed, jealousy, envy, avarice, lust, anger, and pride are often blinders. Thus, scientisimists often ally or war with one another. They practice deceiving and plundering one another, which produces maelstorms. In such maelstorms, everyone tends to be caught, including ordinary, competent, self sustaining, decent people of good faith and good will who do not want to be either rulers or sheeple.

It's not that scientism is bad, per se.  It's just that it ought not be confused with, or allowed to cloak itself as, or claim the dignity of, science.  Scientism is concerned more with self-fulfilling or self-aggrandizing truthiness than with truth.  If people are to preserve their freedom and dignity, it is vital that they become more aware of the difference between science and scientism.  This is why the role of educators in such matters should be to teach people how to think critically, as opposed to what to think.

At the Intersection of Math and Essence -- Faux Time Simultaneity and Synchronicity

At the Intersection of Math and Essence -- Faux Time Simultaneity and Synchronicity

If the cosmos as a whole has an essence, it is not known to man except insofar as man apprehends renormalizations. To the extent man does not have insight into "dark" renormalizations, the cosmos as a whole may not be measurable to man. And to the extent our cosmos may be fitted into an imaginable infinity or eternity, our cosmos would seem, in its relations beyond our kin, immeasurable.

As two similar perspectives stand close together, they will tend as apparent fact to believe and perceive an apparent end of a rainbow as being near a same place, perhaps over an horizon. They will tend to feel that the rainbow is a real thing that occupies space for a receding and definite time. Relative to their perspective, the existence of the rainbow occupies a measurable time. However, it is not a time-in-itself. There are no particular things-in-themselves. Not even bits of time. Neither space nor time nor space-time exist as granular bits or part-ticlelizable things. They seem to be continuously divisible to orders and levels of significance only because, as appearances, they are renormalizable and renormalized to perspectives of observer-recorders that happen to share similar contextual situations. Outside focal ranges for renormalization, perspectives break down and their observation-recordings concerning appearances of space-time and measurably encompassed substance become fuzzy, ambiguous, incoherent, and eventually not meaningfully existent to any presently potential perspective.

May space-time and substance-information not be things-in-themselves? May they be only appearances, that is, may they be facts only when considered as sequences of events? It seems that sequences of events abide as facts only to the extent they are measurable in respect of orders of significance for focal limits that can be renormalized to be representable to perspectives of consciousness. It seems that particular "facts" can reasonably be conceptualized as nothing more than flux-events that are renormalized to orders of significance for the apparent representation to observer-recorders. Such a conceptualization may be made in a way that is consistent and coherent, without impeding empirical methods of science. Such a conception may help inspire positive empathy between and among the essence of the cosmos and its renormalizing constituencies of particular perspectives of observer-recorders.

Such a conception may reasonably be applied to rationalize that space-time and substance-information are not real-in-themselves, but that they are made to present and appear to be real by an unknowable essence that fluxes in respect of mathematical formulizations and algorithms. The unknowable essence fluxes to express aspects of Consciousness, Substance, and Information (CSI). The Substance aspect obeys (scientific) formulas of conservational calculus and renormalization to perspectives of observer-recorders. The obedience is confirmed by a cumulative record of sequential information (the past).

This may help mankind conceptualize how there is not really any favored fulcrum, and no favored frame of reference, and no simultaneity or synchronicity in time or space. This may help explicate how the appearances of particulars of space, time, substance, and information are derivative of a fluxing essence that effects particularized perspectives via fluxing and renormalizing maths. I suspect there abide no particular things-in-themselves. I suspect the separation of apparent things, in terms of apparent space and time and causal or predictable entanglement, is not really due to space, time, substance, or information. I suspect the sequential separation versus entanglement of apparently separate things is a byproduct of an immeasurable essence that fluxes to effect mathematical renormalizations that produce perspectives of Consciousness, measurable conservations of Substance, and accumulations of Information (CSI).

The source-essence is God. The math is the world. The CSI is the trinitarian con-substantialism of God, i.e., the three faces of God. The message and logos of Jesus may be analogized to the reasoning and understanding Consciousness. The reconciling and judging God may be analogized in the mathematical conservation of Substance. The comfort of remembrance in the Holy Ghost may be analogized in the cumulation of Information.

Particular things do not take space or time to come together to cause or influence one another, because particular things do not really exist. What intersect to come together are the fluxations of an essence that is immeasurable in itself, but whose fluxations are renormalizable to apparently local and particular mathematical calculus and measure. As maths of fluxations of the source-essence intersect, the appearances they sponsor appear also to intersect. The sequences of mathematical operations in respect of the fluxations of the immeasurable essence account for the apparent distances and separations in the potentialities of space, time, substance, and information. Chronologies are protected within what we perceive as our cosmos because the algorithmic functions that the Source-Essence applies to express particulars and potentials proceed along a generally set vector of math.

SUMMARY:
There are no particular things.
Therefore, there are no things to exist simultaneously or synchronously.
There are only appearances (re-presentations) of particular things.
There are particular facts concerning events, which are observed-recorded to all orders of significant measurement.
There are appearances that are renormalized to perspectives, as if they were experienced in renormalizable sequentiality, simultaneity, or synchronicity.
There is no actual, granular segment, bit, or particle of time or space.
Among particulars, there abides no commonly shared nowness.
There are renormalized resolutions of renormalizations, under which not all information can be recovered to every perspective.
However, subject to renormalization, orders of significance can be recovered, up to the limits of fuzz and ambiguity.

PARTICIPATORY WILL:
Particular experiences and perspectives of Will do not feed back contemporaneously in time, because time as such does not exist. But they do feed back in contemporaneous mathematical function. The source-essence tests, apprehends, and appreciates its fluxations in sequences of feed back, between and among itself as a holism and itself as a sum of perspectives, experiencing each perspective as being renormalized to its particular orders of qualitative and quantitative significance. The capacity of the source-essence to function as a holism-sum and as a changedless-changer is inherent to its singular character and nature.







Growing Up versus Perpetual Children

When people are kept as perpetual children, it's safe to assume someone is harvesting political control over them.  A "science of self fulfilling polls" can be connived and coordinated via dishonest pollsters, lying politicians, corrupt cronies, trained dupes, and fraudulent voting machines. Such faux-science that operates more like scientism may dupe un-wise, naive or senile people, young and old, with unskilled or cherry-picked statistical data.

Thus, practitioners of scientism can offer a mask of science to cover fraud under a system that uses inappropriate, inane, or corrupt peer review to give a veneer of respectability. For example, by infantilizing adults, governmental elitists may make it a self-fulfilling argument that government, not parents, should be made the primary overseers for raising children. In practice, this has become the sad fact in many neighborhoods that are comprised of minority welfare families. The self-fulfilling effect of such governmental intrusiveness tends to be to make more parents so incompetent as to need governmental intrusiveness. The effect tends to be that the children, instead of growing up to leave the nest of their parents, simply squat in the nest of their government controllers. The effect is to stifle the freedom and dignity of many people by precluding dupes from becoming individually competent and morally responsible adults.

Scientism can reinforce self-defeating or self-fulfilling prophecies, so that what is decreed by opinion and fad leaders soon becomes akin to practical fact. Norman Vincent Peale understood the power of positive thinking. People who are inspired to believe they are smart, pretty, athletic, or caring can, by skillful conditioning, be led to become smart, pretty, athletic, or caring -- both quantitatively and qualitatively.

However, science cannot very well guide the progress for our spiritual unfolding so long as we presume science should or could trump Spirit.

I recently read Popper's The Open Society.  Popper explicated that facts pertain not to things-in-themselves, but to events-in-flux.  This may lead one to consider how the cosmic flux is presented to each observer-participant. Think about how, within a system that makes a rainbow or universe, there is no measurable or determinate end-in-itself of any thing-in-itself. One is not availed to see any brick wall at the end of the universe.  Rather, all relational ends and events are constantly and continuously renormalized to each perpsective, depending on the relative locus and vector in space-time of each fluxing event, perspective, and context. The cosmos fluxes to present facts by constantly and continuously paying attention to renormalize their presentation to each perspective.

This seems to implicate a Spirit of Living Cosmos, such that no part-icular fact exists in itself.  Rather, every fact that is particular to a locus must be sensed or recorded as being contemporaneously re-normalized to the situation of each observer-recorder by the re-presenting Holism (Spirit) that abides and fluxes.  It seems that no part-icular fact exists for present-ation except as it is communicated (re-presented) by the Spirit of the fluxing ("living") cosmos.  The cosmos presents facts to us, but they are facts that are renormalized to whatever the situation that we happen to share.

People standing together in much the same situation will see the end of a rainbow as seeming to be at the same place.  Science does not consist in particles-in-themselves, but part-icles as they are collapsed out of a field of potentiality and presented to the measure and apprehensions of observer-recorders who happen to share a situation.

In respecting how the cosmos entails itself in feedback with its particular creations, people may accord more respect to its spiritual, living aspect and be more conscious of the potentialities of being receptive to its guidance and to innate empathies among its creations.  As I look at the ISIS cretin-children in the bodies of young men bartering over the sale of captured slave girls, it strikes me that they have been twisted by an evil meme to forget and neglect the innate guidance and empathy that is availed through the living Spirit.

OF FACTS AND OPINIONS, STANDARDS AND VALUES, SCIENCE AND SCIENTISM


OF FACTS AND OPINIONS, STANDARDS AND VALUES, SCIENCE AND SCIENTISM, SPIRIT AND LIFE:

SCIENTIFIC LAWS: There are facts about sequences and relationships among events. Some such facts abide as laws of substantively measurable nature. They can be reliably represented in formulations about physics and substance.


WHOLE AND PARTS: In considering specifically defined and limited relationships among Substances, one finds that they are conserved and balanced, much as a mathematical formula. Conservation will rule all coordinate measures of specific relationships to all measured out orders of significance. Considering the sum total of substance, however, is different, in that such a constant and continuous totality of flux cannot be measured, since measuring it would necessitate a perspective outside it. That would necessitate a perspective that no mortal observer can take. This does not mean that the cosmic sum has no measure. It just means it does not have a measure that can be apportioned to mortal comprehension.

CONTINUOUS COMMUNICATION OF FEEDBACK:  The state of the connection or bonding between the Substance of an avatar (the body of a being), the Informational representation of the accumulation of its experiences (memory), and the quality of its Consciousness (feelings concerning its sensations) is affected by the internal organization of the avatar (attitude of purposefulness), the receptive tuning of its senses and memory (point of view), and the context that is external to it (frame of reference).  The quality of the information that the avatar receives from the wave of potentiality that is external to it is affected by the qualitative and measurable internal organization of its receptors.  Attitude affects one's receptors.  Receptors affect what one receives.  What one receives affects one's attitude and one's receptors.

SPECIFICALLY UNPREDICTABLE EFFECTS OF OBSERVING AND TAKING MEASUREMENTS:  Particular apprehensions affect fluxing presentations, which affect appreciations, which affect apprehensions, and so on, fluxing and unfolding as the whole of the field and its constituents and parts communicate and feed back and forth with each other, each affecting the moral purposefulness of the other.


INFINITY AND ETERNITY: To our apprehension, every presenting sum of the cosmos can apparently be represented and subjected to an infinity of divisions of perspectives in accumulations of information in space-time. Re-presentations may be finite, yet unbounded in context, infinitely divisible, and re-combinable.

DIFFERENTIAL RECEPTIVENESS: To each perspective whose point of view is from a slightly different frame of reference and different accumulation of filtering information, each presentment of an event is interpreted differently. Even so, each such event abides as a representation of an underlying factual relationship among an immeasurable flux that is shared in common with every perspective that has potential to sense or measure an aspect of it.

COMPOSITIONAL FACTS OF FLUXING FIELDS AND WAVES OF POTENTIALITY: Composite facts, although indeterminate except as considered in relation to an interpretive context, are preserved in a sequential record of the past. The observation and recordation of a measurable and measured fact "collapses" its wave of potentiality and determines it with significant part-icularity, so it can be re-presented and communicated as a part-icular fact. Facts that are not observed or measured remain in a general flux of indeterminateness and potentiality. Every fact that is collapsed to the measured determination of a perspective or recorder, contemporaneous with its communication, such as to another observer, must first be renormalized to the perspective (point of view) and context (frame of reference) within which such other observer habituates its identity (avatar). Every measurable fact that is communicable as such is broadly renormalizable to every perspective that can receive a communication relating to it. Facts do not exist to measured sensations except as interpretations of events. For interpretations, facts exist in a multi-flux of renormalizable ways. All measurable facts abide as composite fluxes of future potentiality of renormalizable communications.

FOUNDATIONAL HAPPENSTANCE: No non-trivial fact abides as a fact-in-itself, that can be observed, measured, or purposed in exactly the same way from every perspective and frame of reference. Every interpretation and derivation of a natural law concerning measurable facts needs to avail practical renormalization to each perspective that applies it. Natural laws that happen to be most foundational to shared perspectives will tend to be most precisely reliable. There is an aspect of renormalizing self-fulfillment in such precision. Such natural laws would not be foundational had the perspectives that find them to be foundational not happened to share a situation that happens to make them so. It is in respect of sharing such a foundation that different perspectives have capacity to reliably communicate renormalizable measures of unfolding fluxes of substance among themselves.

SCIENTISM AND PRACTICAL TRUTHINESS: However, apart from shared natural laws of physics, many facts are less foundational to communications. Manmade divisions in property assignments are not known to foundational nature. Such divisions are chosen by members of a society. They are related to manmade laws. Studies in psychology, sociology, economics, government, polling, prophecy, language, and history generally relate to such manmade conventions. Such studies are often conflated by confusers, deceivers, and abusers. The practical reliability of their formulations tends often to be much influenced by circular conditioning, sometimes random and sometimes contrived. The contrivance of formulations for making predictions and advocating policies in such fields can be abetted by vague terminology, tests picked to aid confirmation bias, bribery, intimidation, and deception. Such contrivances are more bad-faith Scientism than good-faith practical Science. Their "truthiness" is more in confusion and contrivance to purposes than in accurate description of substantive facts.

HARVESTING POLITICAL CONTROL OVER PEOPLE WHO ARE KEPT AS PERPETUAL CHILDREN: A "science of self fulfilling polls" can be connived and coordinated via dishonest pollsters, lying politicians, corrupt cronies, trained dupes, and fraudulent voting machines. Such faux-science that operates more like scientism may dupe naive or senile people, young and old, with unskilled or cherry-picked statistical data. Thus, practitioners of scientism can offer a mask of science to cover fraud under a system that uses inappropriate, inane, or corrupt peer review to give a veneer of respectability. For example, by infantilizing adults, governmental elitists may make it a self-fulfilling argument that government, not parents, should be made the primary overseers for raising children. In practice, this has become the sad fact in many neighborhoods that are comprised of minority welfare families. The self-fulfilling effect of such governmental intrusiveness tends to be to make more parents so incompetent as to need governmental intrusiveness. The effect tends to be that the children, instead of growing up to leave the nest of their parents, simply squat in the nest of government controllers. The effect is to stifle the freedom and dignity of many people by precluding dupes from becoming individually competent adults.

POSITIVE THINKING: Scientism can also reinforce self-defeating or self-fulfilling prophecies, so that what is decreed by opinion and fad leaders soon becomes akin to practical fact. Norman Vincent Peale understood the power of positive thinking. People who are inspired to believe they are smart, pretty, athletic, or caring can, by skillful conditioning, be led to become smart, pretty, athletic, or caring -- both quantitatively and qualitatively.

SPIRITUAL EMPATHY AND SELF FULFILLING MORALITY: Science cannot very well guide progress for our spiritual unfolding so long as we presume science should or could trump spirit.

SPIRIT OF THE LIVING COSMOS:  No part-icular fact exists in itself.  Every fact that is specific or particular to a locus must be sensed or recorded as being contemporaneously re-normalized to the situation of each observer-recorder by the re-presenting Holism (Spirit) that abides and fluxes as the apparently paradoxically finite yet unbounded cosmos, i.e., the Changeless Changer.  No part-icular fact exists for present-ation except as it is communicated (re-presented) by the Spirit of the fluxing ("living") cosmos.

FLUX, FACTS AND FAITH



FLUX, FACTS AND FAITH

TRUTH -- NON-TRIVIAL, EXPERIENTIAL, DIRECT, INTUITIVE TRUTH: Perspectives of Consciousness apprehend, appreciate, experience, record, represent, remember, observe, interpret, communicate, and participate with the effecting of an unfolding chronology of facts regarding a constant flux of events.

TRINITY -- CSI: Consciousness communicates Information in the significations of Substance.

FACTS: Facts concern events, not things. The measurable world is comprised of a Flux of facts, not essences of things in themselves.

HOLISM: The flux is conserved as a Holism that is expressed to perspectives of consciousness at points of view within frames of reference. The Flux abides as a holism, which in itself is beyond mortal measure. The unfolding expression of the flux of the Holism is quantitatively signified and qualitatively appreciated in ways that are amenable of meaningful and purposeful communications among perspectives of chronologies of events, facts, opinions, interpretations, and constant reevaluations.

CSI: The flux entails potentiality of events, i.e., qualitative experiences of Consciousness, recordations of Information, and communications of significations of quantifiable Substance. The fundamental fact is that Consciousness communicates Information with the significations of Substance. Without all three fundaments of the Holism, being Consciousness, Substance, and Information (CSI), no beingness or flux of beingness would be imaginable or communicable in any meaningful respect.

FLUX: Facts, as sequential events, are represented and preserved in a record of the past. That record, even though existent, is not experienced except insofar as it is Re-Normalizable to each perspective that experiences a measurable observation of its constituent Facts and immeasurable interpretative Opinion of its qualitative values.

RENORMALIZATION: Insofar as facts are renormalizable to each perspective, facts are not set as determinate things in or by themselves. Facts, although indeterminate, are preserved in a sequential record of the past. The observation and recordation of a measurable and measured fact "collapses" and determines it, so it can be communicated as a fact. Facts that are not observed or measured remain in a general flux of indeterminateness and potentiality. Every fact that is collapsed to the measured determination of a perspective or recorder, contemporaneous with its communication, such as to another observer, must first be renormalized to the perspective (point of view) and context (frame of reference) within which such other observer habituates its identity (avatar). Every measurable fact that is communicable as such is broadly renormalizable to every perspective that can receive a communication relating to it.

RECORD OF PAST FACTS: A sequential record of the Information concerning the measurable Facts of the past abides. No mortal can meaningfully discuss, measure, determine, or limit any fact as a fact about any thing in itself. All facts concerning events are indeterminate except as they are measured, communicated, and renormalized to perspectives operating in respect of contexts. All facts abide as broad fluxes of future potentiality of renormalizable communications. In functioning within a system that makes a rainbow or universe, there is no measurable or determinate end-in-itself of any thing-in-itself. All relational ends and events are constantly and continuously renormalized to each perpsective, depending on the relative locus and vector in space-time of each fluxing event, perspective, and context. Facts are representations of events that have either been partially renormalized to the experience of Consciousness or broadly recorded as Information to the fluxing form of Substance. Facts do not exist except as interpretations of events. For interpretations, facts exist in a multi-flux of renormalizable ways.

ABSOLUTE NON-TRIVIAL TRUTH: Accepting the truth of the contemporaneous participatory will of human action and perspectives of consciousness, which pervades and adjusts and normalizes all non-trivial truths, there is no such thing as a non-trivial truth that is absolute in substantive effect, apart from the contemporaneous influence of actions that are summoned and normalized in respect of the observations and fluxing participation of human beings and other perspectives of consciousness.

CHRONOLOGICAL PROTECTION: Non-trivial truth concerning factual events does exist concerning chronologies of recordations, observations, interpretations, renormalizations, and fluxing and overlapping formulations of purposefulness.

CSI: Perspectives of purposeful Consciousness bond with avatars of Substance, as substance is defined and limited in respect of shared systems of conservational maths, which conservation conforms to renormalizing rules of natural In-form-ation. Perspectives unfold in purposefulness as they record, observe, interpret, appreciate, apprehend, and part-icipate in the alteration of experiences of sequential events.

CONSCIOUS IDENTITY: Consciousness of I-ness abides with intuitions of cohesive continuity with each unfolding of a perspective of Consciousness that is bonded with a fluxing avatar of Substance as it cumulates Information

FREEDOM WITH ORDER: The limits of a particular perspective of consciousness will be bounded in the spatiality-temporality with which its avatar of substance happens to have bonded. Such limits are finite to their defining spatiality-temporality, but the spatiality-temporality "itself" is unbounded in image-inative potentiality. Our flux limits our present opportunities, but our future potential seems bounded only by the limits of image-ination.

UNFOLDING LIMITS: Thus, science of Substance and cumulation of Information avail finite yet unbounded potentialities for tinkering with, designing, and cumulating avatars and measuables. However, the potentiality of Consciousness is limited only by the definitional triviality of math. The potentiality of Consciousness is not limited by Substance, except in respect of happenstance needs of particular avatars for sustenance.

MORAL LIMITS: Nor is the potentiality of moral purposefulness of Consciousness limited by Substance. If Consciousness respects limits for moral purposefulness in interrelations among perspectives within a civilized society, such limits would seem to flux in respect of one principle of morality: Be empathetically reconciling.

HUMAN MORALITY: Human morality may relate to humanity as well as to the destruction, surpassage, or replacement of humanity. Human beings do not have power to destroy Consciousness in its trinitarian aspect, any more than they have capacity to destroy the universe of substance or the cosmos of consciousness, substance, and information. Human beings have potential to seek to facilitate societies that avail decent respect for the reasonable freedom and dignity of responsible individuals.

GOVERNANCE: To so seek necessitates, in part, that destructive, irresponsible, and immature persons and children be limited and guided to become less destructive, irresponsible, and immature. This necessitates rules of society and authority delegated to its various levels of parents, agents, and governors. This necessitates institutions for balancing powers in order to restrain sociopaths, conspirators, and despots.

INSPIRATION: However, by themselves, forms of institutions are inadequate to such task unless the people of a society evolve to generally share an inspiring regard for an assimilating and purposeful spirituality. The assimilation of Purposeful Spirituality is vital -- regardless of whether such assimilation happens to be in respect of innate cosmic empathy or in respect of a pet name for a spiritually reconciling godhead. The challenge to decency for any such assimilation is to guard against the selfish contrivances of those who plot not for humanity but for their selfish power.

CHRISTIANITY: The ideas Jesus represented have unlimited potential, towards which I believe a self-fulfilling good in Consciousness can choose to aspire.

DECLINE AND FALL: Read Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Compare the bribes and deceits of some of the synods convened under Constantius with the politically correct machinations of professional "scientists of social justice and ethnic studies." Such machinations proceed under pretense. In theosophy, under BLT; in CRT as science; in LGBTK9 as political movement against prevailing establishments; in media as current analysis; in academia as indoctrination; in political practice as power harvesting. What is the essential difference between modern scientism and the scholasticism of antiquity? Is it found in the greater faithfulness of modern progressives in "science" than in the previous faith of the pious eccelesiastics of antiquity? I much doubt it.

FOUNDATIONAL PROBLEM: Can the con-substantial trinity of CSI (consciousness, substance, and information) be consistently and coherently differentiated? Not as things in themselves, but as different aspects or flavors for experiencing the same fluxing holism of beingness? Perhaps yes. The "way" is by adopting and bonding with a perspective (avatar of substance) within a context (frame of reference) and then apprehending and appreciating the unfolding of events as presented to the senses, observations, and remembrance of such perspective. The ultimate "how" of such bonding is unknown and perhaps unknowable.  I must leave that with God.

CON-SUBSTANTIAL CO-EXISTENCE: CSI coexist. Substantive, non-trivial truth concerning social affairs does not exist by itself, free of representation, recordation, observation. interpretation, apprehension, appreciation, alteration.

CON-SUBSTANTIAL TRINITY: The trinity of CSI may be figuratively analogized as follows:  Reasoning (Jesus -- Consciousness); Formulating (God -- Substantiveness); Reconciling (Holy Spirit -- Informativeness).

CSI Feedback Philosophy

It's been a few years since I read anything about the implicate order, but I recall finding the stuff I did read to be interesting. I have given up on the scholastic-essentialist philosophers. And I don't find the foundational assumptions of analytic philosophers to be much of an improvement for addressing the most important concerns of humanity. They seem too much to subordinate the participatory conscious will of human beings to their ideas of pre-determining or overriding natural laws. I think that way leads to a moral dead end, much the same as alchemy led to a scientific dead end.
I think I see the outline of an alternative. I have not seen a name for it, so I may need to make one up. I guess I would call it a CSI Feedback Philosophy. Were I to apply it to think about an implicate order, I would conceptualize the implicate order to be an unfolding beingness that fluxes to express CSI -- consciousness, substance, information. Such a philosophy would recognize that every measurable manifestation of substance must balance to obey a requirement of conservation. But it would also recognize a participatory role for consciousness to reconcile among the possibilities that are availed in potentiality, in order to choose which ones to make part of the manifestations that are rolled into the informational record. The capacity to choose is the key to placing moral responsibility. Without respect for freedom to choose, the arts of civilization seem to reduce to a pig farm.
If God is consciousness, and consciousness is part of the implicate order, then science is helpful, but hubristic scientism is inadequate to entertain or inspire human beings.
