The Final Answer
The Theory of No Absolutes (Relativism)
This is a theory of relativism, based on ideas by Nobody Nowhere (online) and Gavin Giorbran (‘Everything Forever’), which are similar. Light and time play the entire role, as ‘instantaneous’. Giorbran is dead and Nobody is nowhere to be found, so it falls on me to join their near identical ideas together, presenting and extending them.
An absolute, such as matter-mass-energy-substance would have intrinsic properties, its basis being indivisible, as unbreakable and thus unmakable, and furthermore, it being all that there is, there would be no more and no other. This has problems. Its opposite is ‘relative’.
I’m showing that absolutes are impossible, thus leaving/forcing what we call the ‘reality’ of our sensory experiences to be relative and thus transient and so not of any enduring underlying intrinsic nature but only of that relativism which can’t help but ‘happen’ through ‘time’.
An absolute of necessitated total solidity is often referred to as the One, whereas an absolute of necessary complete vacuity would be referred to as the Zero. I am proposing that neither the One nor the Zero can be, which makes for the extremely numerous and varied scenarios of fractionals in between, they having no intrinsics, one of which scenarios is the ‘miragic’ gleam of our own relative existence.
Relative to what, though? Relative to the impossible absolutes, by necessity. For example, zero Kelvin is not required to be observed to be deduced a point from which to measure relative temperature. 0 K is kind of like the impossible absolute Zero, which is not just of low/no temperature but of more, such as no motion, no anything.
So, then, the notions of a real everything, real time, real space, and real motion must fall, along with some of their brethren, such as actual positive and negative infinities, largest and smallest infinities, as well as the eternity of any specific thing. This is not to say, though, that there cannot be relative/potential infinities and eternities. Some even gets worse, though, perhaps for some people, in that everything has already happened, in a kind of tape-delayed, time-dilated broadcast.
Actual infinities can go away, right off the bat, for infinities cannot be capped, and thus they have no being as to be able to be. So, the proposed absolute of the One makes it (and all absolutes) as to be finite, if they could be. For example, the universe is seen as finite, and is considered absolute by some.
As for a proposed absolute of the Zero, which would be the total lack of anything, we know it is not so, nor could it be, for it isn’t there and it doesn’t even have a ‘there’. It is not an empty place for a something to move into, for it isn’t even a place. We cannot go back on this and suddenly try to have Zero or even any bit of it to be somewhere. It isn’t there and never can be, nor it is it the current state of affairs, for there is not a lack of anything here.
We next need to show that an absolute One is impossible, as well, and we can use the proven impossible Zero to accomplish that. It has been proposed that the One of the universe came forth into the Zero, still expands into that Zero, has Zero outside of it, and may have some Zero ‘places’ within it. None of these can be so, since something cannot fill a place that isn’t there, and if there were Zeroes within the One, between some things, then those things would not be separated but would be right next to each other, making for no ‘between’.
Having Zero on the outside of One is a logical fallacy, as is having Zero within One. ‘Nothing’ does not exist, and is not replaceable by something—you can’t put something, even space or time, into that which isn’t there. There is an ultimate future symmetry though.
So, both the absolute One and the absolute Zero are impossible, leaving and forcing only the relative, in between, as any and all fractional scenarios. So, nonexistence, which cannot be, somehow, as then embodied by the photon, must divide itself by itself, as 0/0 = n, producing the relative All of all the ‘n’s, allowing for the observability of electrons. The One that is sought by both science and religion doesn’t exist, so the in-between, forced default condition, has to, which is the Possibility for Everything.
With no outside to All, all has to be happen via the relations therein-herein.
The One remains, the many change and pass;
Heaven’s light forever shines, Earth’s shadows fly;
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of Eternity…
Absolute vs. Relative
A None isn’t ‘there’ nor shows up here,
So, a One can’t be, either, with None outside;
Thus there is no absolute One or None,
Which forces the relative ‘in-between’.
‘One’ as an Absolute Fails Even More
So, we can’t step into what isn’t there,
Nor can a One expand into None,
Nor can there be spaces of None
Within the arena of a One.
Absolute time, space, and motion
Are impossible, which forces relative frames—
Of fractional relations of
Infinite variations of quanta.
The Oddness of Light Photons
Light is ‘null’ to time—not a part of it,
Nor is light of space—it makes space-time ‘lit’.
On a light beam there’s no extent or time!
Light seems to have neither reason nor rhyme.
Light’s full speed in a true vacuum
Of no time and no space is as ‘infinite’,
For it is already everywhere;
In other words: everywhere in no time.
The Zero-Point Extended
This point of creation-annihilation
Is extended into a faux reality,
Both by finite consciousness and by
Light slowed by virtual particles pairs.
Light photons colliding make for
Electrons and positrons, and vice-versa,
With the forward-time of photons being
Canceled by the backward-time gravitons.
Each ‘now’ that’s created and recreated
Over the various relative quanta
Has really already happened, coming, going,
And never ever returning, gone in a flash.
Once Upon a ‘Time’
Of course, it did all really happen ‘once’,
As in all-at-once, in the timeless realm
That must be the state of the ‘eternal’ IS,
With IS being close to what’s called the ‘Wiz’
So, neither absolute solidity
Nor absolute vacuity can be,
Leaving relativism as a necessity,
For we do have sensory experience.
Our ‘reality’ is as a flip-book’s pages turning,
The still pictures changing a bit, granting
An apparent motion, such as in a movie;
However, we do get to experience it!
Come and Gone
Like the light from a star already spent,
Our ‘get up and go’ has long gone and went.
We all birthed, lived, and died right away;
There’s nothing left but the slo-mo replay.
Our parentheses in eternity
Flashes as a twinkling, but’s extended
By ‘time’ into a phantasmic life dream
That’s existent the same as if it were.
In the Eye of the Beholder
A life dream’s like a rainbow, not really there,
A false phenomenon become tangible
Through relativism, this faux true,
Molding temporary significance.
Life’s indeterminate and not, the same
Being brought by the virtual as the true,
The mechanics being as incidental
As why ‘color’ chose its wave frequencies.
The Mechanics of Reality
The result, being the message, is undeniable,
But herein we speak of the messenger,
Which is the implementation,
As that of a recording, over a live band.
The Balance of Opposites
Life’s here, as like virtual particles
Born this side of an event horizon
Of a Black Hole, real-eyes(ed) by their presence
In the realm of what’s been radiated.
What Makes No Difference is No Difference
There is no difference in what makes none;
‘Relativism’ is now playing, the living film—
A reality show in the inner theater
Of the mind’s eye, with the ‘I’ observing.
Existence Has No Opposite
‘Possibility’ is what’s fundamental,
For all that can be must first be possible.
This ‘Potential’ for All is the default,
Since a NOT can’t be, or even be meant.
0/0 = n (all variations), since any n times 0 = 0,
So, 0/0 is as nonexistence divided by itself
Into all of the various relative states;
No absolutes, so there’s only the temporary.
Zero is the greatest number, for it represents
The sum of negative and positive infinities.
Note that an actual infinity cannot be,
For it cannot be capped, and thus has no being.
Lighting the Way
Our finite speed of light, ‘c’, is such
Because it is slowed by virtual particles,
But, even so, to ride it makes time instant,
With all space shrinking to a point.
The Cosmic Egg
The cosmos is as a giant neutron or photon,
The crests and troughs waving, in a
Relative existence, between Zero and One,
Unable to reach either, jiggling-rippling.
Not Unbreakable, Not Unmakeable
The necessity of no One and no None
Makes for no absolutes, which means
That time, space, matter, and motion
Have no intrinsic, indivisible qualities.
The First Cause
Thus, our ‘reality’ is only apparent,
Yet this effect happens always, everywhere,
For the causeless-defaulted ‘cause’ of this
Potential-Possibility must always be such.
Total Solidity and Complete Vacuity Can’t Be
The One and the None cannot mix;
Then there would be two opposite absolutes;
Plus, what is solid could not move,
So, neither can cut it; relativism rules.
The Duos and Duels of Nature
Dualities seem to assist nature:
Good-evil, on-off, hot-cold, man-woman,
Up-down, left-right, here-there, past-future, and
So, neither can exist without the other.
Duality Now and Thus Always
Object and Subject are of what Man is made,
Qualia brightly floating in Nature’s shade
Of consciousness, and so then down through history
Duality’s track of steps is there to see.
What’s said to be eternal isn’t made—
It’s here, from not anything, with no debit paid,
Which is to say, too, it’s not from anywhere,
And that seems pretty much like from nowhere.
Well, there’s nothing to make anything of,
So, then, that is ever what it’s made of,
Whether eternal or always becoming,
In that nether-land of the law of no laws.
For what is causeless there is no point
At which any specific direction
Can be imparted to it; thus, there is none:
Everything that is possible can happen.
There must be a duality of Yin and Yang,
Such as Being and Nothingness combined,
For what is complete unto itself has no
Catalyst from which to initiate change.
Binary Dialectic Dichotomies Bifurcate
Of Being and Nothingness the Universe
Banged forth space and time intertwined,
And within this became the contrast
Of electromagnetism’s transition.
The Dualistic Essence Continues On
Of electromagnetism then
Particles and radiation become,
Opposed, as lumps and fields, as incarnate:
Electrons, six quark types, and the photon.
The Why of Being and Nothingness
Being and all that it is not exhausts
All Possibility, as opposites,
And so they must form a duality,
For there’s no point to specify either.
Beyond Local Reality
Time, space, stuff, change, and form are real-ized from
The Fundamental Possibility,
Becoming the penultimate reality,
One possible from the probabilities.
Quantum Superposition is Real
Our reality comes not from nothing,
But exists always as possibility,
One that amounts to something workable,
Among all in superposition.
The First Impossibility
No form of a penultimate realness
Could exist alone before the rest, since
Everything is quantum-known-all-at-once;
For what could make the choice among many?
The Second Impossibility
Nor comes it from an absolute nothing,
Since there can be no such ‘thing’ at all,
So, since either way is impossible,
Fundamental Possibility IS.
The photon thus represents totality; however totality, as everything, equates to nothing, and neither state is possible, absolutely. It is that Everything and Nothing have the same information content: zero. Electrons/positrons and gravitons are also forms/states of the photon. Essentially, forward time gets erased by backwards time. Our reality is of the time-dilated interim, our ‘now’ here today, gone tomorrow, as a new ‘now’ appears. The ‘nows’ are blended, this born of the present sensation, remembrance of the just past, and the imagination of the future about to come. The delight of this music is more than any of the three could produce alone. We travel through time frames, not as objects through space, and it is that ‘time’, as we will come to understand it, that grants the unity of continuity.
There is neither time nor space from light’s point of view and so it is already ‘everywhere’. The photon is was forced to form, representing everything/nothing, as opposing waves 180 degrees out of phase, which can make for electrons and positrons, due to collisions with other photons, as matter made, which mass of matter makes for gravity, and so light is slowed by the virtual particles and further and finally ultimately negated by gravitons, their negative potential energy canceling the positive kinetic energy of matter (per Hawking).
Now, this next bit may sound silly, but the only possible absolute is nothing, but this ‘absolute’ has no existence, so it is the nonexistent absolute; however, relatively, all is and must be relative to nothing of the impossibility of the Zero and the One. This may be such as the 0 Kelvin that cannot be gotten to, but, never the less, measurements can be made relative to it.
The apparent solid, stable world of matter appears to be sustained at every instant by an underlying sea of quantum light. So let us take this further. If it is the underlying realm of light that is the fundamental reality propping up our physical universe, let us ask ourselves how the universe of space and time would appear from the perspective of a beam of light. The laws of relativity are clear on this point. If you could ride a beam of light as an observer, all of space would shrink to a point, and all of time would collapse to an instant. In the reference frame of light, there is no space and time. If we look up at the Andromeda galaxy in the night sky, we see light that from our point of view took two million years to traverse that vast distance of space. But to a beam of light radiating from some star in the Andromeda galaxy, the transmission from its point of origin to our eye was instantaneous.
There must be a deeper meaning in these physical facts, a deeper truth about the simultaneous interconnection of all things. It beckons us forward in our search for a better, truer understanding of the nature of the universe, of the origins of space and time—those “illusions” that yet feel so real to us.
There are only two constants: change and nonexistence. Once something is created it has to change because the effects required for it to be created as it is, creates other effects that destroy it, as the closure that makes for compositional parity (everything gets created, in pairs, even photons). This is the basis for relativity and evolution—“reality”—because it has no choice but to function as it does when governed by natural rules. Absolute reality doesn’t follow those rules.
I conclude that relatively the universe exists, but absolutely it doesn’t. The challenge to absolutists is to provide a “fundamental substance” that is indivisible, this making for intrinsicnesss, as a substance that has no relativistic properties, which means that it cannot be divided or reduced.
The unresolvable dichotomy paradox of having both absolute everything and nothing coexisting has led us here. So, the result is that All (to us) is delayed from a kind of instantaneous superposition, which is really in no space and no time, as all at once, having already ‘happened’, but taking ‘our time’ to play out, like still frames succeeding one another quickly on a computer screen, due to various re-creations, making motion to be only apparent, not real. The universe is fractal-like, it being relatively infinite above us, as larger, and relatively infinite below us, as smaller, with us and our ‘now’ at the finite mid-point of this relative infinity and eternity, it coming and going, as it does, but with no intrinsic properties to it whatsoever. As such, we are relieved of the unbreakable/unmakable paradox of absolute substance.
So, again, the universe, as One, and what is outside it, as Zero cannot be of two different absolutes, either, so they must be the same, making both relative to nothing, and so neither of them absolute at all. Existence at every instant and place is thus temporary, fleeting, here and gone forever, as a kind of time-dilated broadcast. Our get up and go has ‘long ago’ got up and gone away. We are flashes in the pan, but there is no pan.
‘C’ is the true, ‘infinite’ speed of light in a true vacuum of no time and space and our ‘c’ is a reduced speed due to constant interaction with virtual particles and gravity, but, even so, this ‘c’ light speed still has no time or space to it. It’s as if photons create our ‘reality’ and gravitons erase it. Net zero. In between, there is the ‘here’ and ‘now’, via gravitational time-dilation.
Absolutely full (One), is impossible, and this is because there could be no free space for propagation other than the proposed recreation over zero-dimensional points in relativism. Motion is an illusion due to the fact that there could be no separated substrata through which motion can occur.
We are of what is back and forth, towards both the impossible One and the impossible Zero, and therein between lies our ‘existence’. Our relativity is of an infinite number of random interactions and reactions to those interactions, of which this particular “reality” is but one of very many scenarios.
Next is another derivation, with slight differences, but getting on to that there are no absolutes, from the ‘Everything Forever’ site by Giorbran, and that forms the main portion of my presentation.
In his excellent book Three Roads to Quantum Gravity, Lee Smolin introduces a simple maxim: there is nothing outside the universe. This statement is fairly self-evident and should not be controversial. If we define the “universe” to be the sum total of absolutely everything that exists, then there can clearly be nothing “outside” the universe. But this seemingly unremarkable maxim has astounding implications for our picture of nature—implications which are not generally realized.
If there is nothing outside the universe, then everything “inside” the universe can only be defined in terms of other objects “inside” the universe: every object in the universe is defined in terms of every other object in the universe. This principle, of space emerging purely from the relationships between objects, is a guiding feature of the theory of loop quantum gravity where it is called background independence.
And the next step we can take in analyzing the relative universe is rather remarkable. In the absence of any absolutes in the universe, absolutely everything must be relative. This means not only the location property must be relative to other objects, but every property must be defined relative to every other object in the universe!
The Unbelievable Truth
This ultimate basis of reality,
Though not much like our local reality,
Is hinted at by quantum physics—
It forms reality real as can be!
The Verifiable Truth
So how else could it be, for particles
Do appear and disappear from somewhere,
Going from here to there, with no between,
Manifesting from no-where to now-here.
The Shimmering Gleam
We butterflies, on the edge of forever’s flight,
Spread fast our wings on the ocean of light
That is of the ageless photonic opposing waves
In no time, mass, or space that is thereby made.
Here and Now Only
We are as beings of the everlasting light dream,
As products time and time again by its means,
Of the eternal return, as baubles blown and burst,
Though frames of time that quench life’s thirst.
Time future, time present, and time past
Are all at once, with not a bit of it to last.
The glorious light flashes us into being shone,
As the light ‘eternal’ of all time to be known.
Back and Forth
The photon secrets something and its anti,
Releasing them as electrons and positrons,
In collisions, regaining them, in their union
Upon annihilations, this zero-point stretched.
The Age-Old Question
Why is there something rather than nothing?
Well, the question is now moot, for there’s neither
An absolute something (it’s relative)
Nor an absolute nothing. Neither can be.
What is that which is outside the universe?
There can be no absolute universe
With an absolute nothingness
Outside, so the question’s become moot.
In No Time and No Space
What came first, the matter or the light,
Since it seems that each needs the other to be?
There’s no first, only at the same ‘time’.
Photons, electrons, positrons are all-at-once.
Relativism, Ever In-between
Why is the relative universe
So incredibly ‘infinitely’ large?
Because the small has to be so
Incredibly infinitesimal, as the simple.
Where did relative existence some from?
There is nothing to make it of, but it had to be,
Since it is here, so it all cancels out,
Instantly; it’s simultaneous.
The Default Condition
Who or what made our relative existence?
No one and no-thing, for it is
Of the simple brute force of all scenarios—
As relatively existing between Zero and One.
No Such Thing
How could some absolute existents
Be indivisible-unbreakable, and unmakeable?
There aren’t any, so the problem is moot.
‘Nothing lasts’—it’s the “nonexistent absolute”.
One of the Better Universes
The flowing through all paths of everything
Guarantees that the best solutions will be found,
Which beats Intelligence that tries to foresee all,
But never can; nor can the complex be First.
The Lumping is Still a Wave
Is the two-slit experiment result perplexing?
No, for fields are primary, not ‘particles’,
For what is thought of as ‘particles’
Are field quanta; a wave will go through both slits.
It is Just to Be
What is the purpose of our existence?
None, but we do ‘exist’ in one of the
Relative scenarios whose path led to us.
Our existence was inherent, all along.
But 99.99999 percent of the ‘time’
We were not around, and perhaps ‘we’ are
Not there in 99.99999 percent of all ‘space’.
We weren’t a primary objective, nor was any.
Did the universe have a beginning?
No, because the universe cannot be
Affected by anything outside it.
It just is, and, beyond’, it also isn’t.
Why Not Any Certain Way?
If the relative universe is eternal,
Then what is there to explain the way it is?
It is ‘universes’ in every way,
And so not any universe in particular.
No Linear Movement Through Space
Does a whole new universe appear at every ‘now’?
Yes, one doesn’t step into the same universe twice,
This somewhat analogous to someone clever,
Who said, that we never step into the same river.
What is the source of all this existence,
For that still seems to make it great?
Unconsciousness, nothing, no-mind is
The be-all, start-all, and end-all, as ‘great’.
Should we then let go of all our ego?
Not necessarily, for the ego is
An input to our resultant zest for life;
However, take it all in with a grain of salt.
Yes, detach from it all when necessary.
It is as a play within no play,
In no place in no time, just relative.
The timeless-formless is as ‘nothingness’.
What is the meaning in all that?
Only what we have and enjoy
In the here and now, internally.
Externally, there isn’t anything.
No Real Reality
Forget about indivisible fundamental substance;
It would be unbreakable and thus unmakable.
For the ‘null’, look to the unconscious,
‘Finite’ to consciousness, ‘method’ to the subconscious.
The Gateway to Perfection
Enjoy the play that you get to act in,
Sometimes retreating to the back row,
As the distanced audience, witnessing afar,
Finding peace and everlasting gladness.
The Alpha of the Beginning can’t be
From the impossible nonexistence;
Only time begins, and so the universe
Must be such that time moves frames forward.
Grouping Order to Symmetry Order
Wherefore why the ‘improbable’ Alpha,
It being the most complete grouping order
Of separated and inverse matter?
Only then is the pull toward symmetry.
To the ‘Improbable’
All the possibilities of the imbalances
Must trace back to the one and only state
Of the most probable beginning of all,
The separation of matter and anti-matter.
Between River Shores and Lakes Alpha/Omega
The ultimate, flat, symmetry order
Of the Omega—the end of all, draws
The river of time along, guiding it,
Through the probability patterns.
The Wave Function of the Universe
Totality is in a superposition,
All at once—of no time and of no space,
The quantum probability patterns
Really being so, not just a math tool.
From Grouping Order to Blended Symmetry Order
The Time River of Probabilities
Flows smoother and further near its center,
While near the shores there are eddies and swirls,
Contrasts, lumpiness, ebbs—even back flow.
The pages turn and the living film plays,
Motion but apparent, as successive frames—
All the alternate plot’s scenarios being,
Which will blend into ‘everything forever’.
We Reflecting the Universe Start-End
The two brain hemispheres, too, must reflect
The nature of the universe itself,
As the grouping order versus and with
The whole of the symmetry order.
The Hare Beats the Turtle
The universe expands, forming a light cone;
The arc of the ‘ice-cream’ end getting flatter,
Seeming to take forever to straighten—
Accelerating expansion bridges the gap.
It Has Always Been/Is
Nonexistence can’t be, nor even meant;
So it is that existence must be here;
There’s no other option, by necessity,
And thus herein these pages we learn its ways.
Divergence and Convergence
Top-down drives the bottom-up ‘events’,
The future ever affecting the present;
The flat whiteness of the Omega End
Brings forth diversified prismatic colors.
Electrons, protons, seem ‘bottom-up’
But are ‘enfolded’ in the top-down whole,
As with Bohm’s implicit order guiding
The blooming, unfolding, explicit order.
The Second of the Final Laws
Boltzman’s increasing disorder (entropy),
Due to there being many more states of
Disorder than order, is close to the mark,
But it’s more-so of the ungrouped patterns.
As Well, There Are Many More Ways For…
The universe to be lumpy, in degrees,
Than for it to be perfectly smooth,
And that’s why there’s still a grouping order,
As with galaxies and solar systems.
The Opposite ‘Improbable’
The not so ‘improbable’ symmetry
Of uniformity comes at future’s end;
This Omega symmetry order is
The opposite of Alpha’s grouping order.
Bohm’s Poem of Home
Classical physics says that reality
Is of particles that separate
The world into independent elements;
But now I am proposing the reverse…
Close Condensations Approximate a Track
The fundamental reality is en-un-foldment;
Particles are abstractions from that.
Electrons don’t exist continuously
But are coming, going, then coming again.
Real Quantum Mechanics
Possibilities are actualities, so
Possibilities exist, in a timeless way,
So then we have a simple solution
To why our universe came from a dense state.
All at Once
All the possible patterns of the past
And future exist simultaneously,
Independent of the passage of time frames,
So, the history of a temporal universe…
Moving through those possible patterns
Will inevitably trace backward to
The extreme, greatest imbalance, and hence
To the severe order of the Alpha start.
It seems strange that time began from Alpha,
Unless patterns are physically real.
Then time invariably originates
From the greatest imbalance of them all.
Time’s forward direction is ever toward balance.
And so when it’s traced backward, that same path
Invariably originates from imbalance;
The temporal universe is as it must be.
Any path of time embedded within
A physically real pattern space would
Exhibit a history that originates from the
Single most improbable location of all: Alpha.
Since pattern space is existingly there
Then the flow of time is built into reality,
Causing probable time-worlds to exist, while
Extremely improbable time-worlds do not.
All possibilities must exist,
Because nonexistence cannot be so.
Existence is inevitable. What does exist?
Whatever is possible to exist does exist.
Our Existence is Not Absurd
Time-worlds are secondary, subject to
The realer reality of timeless patterns.
Time’s passage must pass through patterns;
‘Tis no more spectacular than a moment.
What Patterns Lead to
The must-existence of patterns is great—
For the hierarchy of atomic elements,
Stars systems, bio-life, consciousness,
And finally intelligence and wisdom.
No Chaotic Change
If time and change were not restricted
To probability’s arrow of time
Built into pattern space then anything
Could happen and would happen, as chaos.
Quantum events are a “handshake” between
Past (retarded waves) information
And future (advanced waves) information,
Causing the probabilities to collapse to ‘now’.
Probabilities Produced From the Whole
Time doesn’t simply roll into the future,
For there’s a mesh of probabilities
Where possible pasts and futures meet,
Which scientists correctly call ‘non-local’.
The Complete Transaction
When we stand in the dark and look at
A star not only have the retarded waves
From the star have been long traveling,
But advanced waves have reached into the past.
The End Promotes the Means
Time’s river, having a specific ending, explains
Why the universe’s wave function is specific.
If what’s possible was just coming from the past,
There’s no reasonable explanation…
The Guidance Goal: Lake Alpha to Lake Omega
For the control of all the probabilities,
Such as the wave density of atomic particles,
A river only from the past would be
Flowing outward into chaos, but it can’t.
The New Natural Selection
‘Evolution’ is thus an ordered happening,
From the unnoted neutral order in the future,
Along with the positive order of the past.
(So now we know there must be a negative.)
The Whole Thing
The positive order in the Alpha past
Is only half of the Cosmos’ puzzle,
Merely half of a larger duality, one side
Of the great divide, one side of the coin.
The Chess Board
Our Alpha is one chess player as the game begins,
When all the pieces of one color are divided apart,
Half of the most extreme case of grouping order;
Both Alphas are the highest imbalance and contrast.
Time, and Time Again
Time travels from positive to neutral,
While anti-time travels from negative to neutral,
But, note that time & anti-time are much identical.
We may even be alternating back and forth.
Matter Traveling Backward in Time
If matter is evolving forward in time,
Anti-matter is matter evolving backward in time,
In the direction of our own positive Alpha,
Explaining why anti-matter is unstable on our side.
Stable anti-matter exists on the other side
Of ours in anti-time, traveling inversely in time,
Not backwards, but away from the negative Alpha
Toward the universal Omega.
Since time is a direction in space,
Then the space that we’re within is special.
It’a not a 3-D space in which things move about;
It is instead what Einstein called space-time.
4-D, Not 3-D
Space-time is a product of “4-D directions”
In space that travel through a series of many
3-D block-like spaces, jumping from one to the next,
As a new volume dependent on the 4-D directions.
The Probability of Balance
Exterior to the 3-D spaces, the 4-D volume
That we exist within changes and transforms;
It evolves because most of the spacial
Directions move from Alpha toward Omega.
The Unnoted Dimension
This 4-D volume is what collapses
In the phase of accelerating expansion (Big Rip),
Even though the actual universe is expanding.
This acceleration is inevitable.
Driven by Opposites
This dominant probability
Makes our volume (our space) positive
In reference to the volume of
Anti-time which is negative.
Anti-time is a negative space,
Or negative space-time,
Which is properly referred to
As negative volume.
The Unseen Scene
Inverse matter can only exist in
The negative volume of anti-time.
We cannot observe the negative density
Of an inverse-proton in our positive space.
Our positive volume would collapse
Before the inverse proton could
Exist spatially extended, on our side
Of the dividing line between worlds.
The negative electron is but a point particle.
Our positive volume collapses before
The negative density that gives the electron
A definite mass can exist spatially extended.
Front and Back
Electrons are one side of inverse-protons in anti-time,
Which means the back side of our protons
Are inverse electrons, and our electrons
Are the back side of someone else’s protons.
For Opposites to Move To Balance
The whole progression of time is driven
By a slow cosmic influx of negative density leaking
Into our positive volume from the other side;
A slow merging of the two sides is occurring,
The two sides must slowly and gradually unite,
Which from our perspective causes
The cosmos to grow larger and expand,
In the first steps away from Alpha,…
Time is stepping away from the uniformity
And sameness of a perfect positive state
And is necessarily moving into the
Beginning of variety and diversity.
The negative can visibly invade Alpha
By tunneling into its positive space,
Creating fluctuations in the CBR, or at
Micro-scales as negative charge point particles.
The Cosmic Plans
In order to control the cosmos,
In the necessity to bring itself about,
Omega must even rigidly regulate
The early cosmos in its first moments.
As if planning to bring about complexity and life,
The early fluctuations in expansion are moderate,
The masses of electrons all kept equal,
The ratio of electrons-protons kept even.
Has to Be
With the precision of a watchmaker,
The inevitable future carefully designs
The stable particles with properties that will
Produce the periodic table, molecules, even DNA.
Only Two Ways
Why just the proton and electron?
Why just two stable fundamental particles?
Why are they matched with polar charges?
They are forged with a specific goal in mind.
All the Pieces of the Puzzle
We know what we think of as a material universe
Is really an intricate interplay of imbalances.
All that is known are positives and negatives,
As the stable protons and electrons.
The March of Time
Following time backward only increases imbalance,
In seeing that time originates fully positive,
And then slowly becomes less positive,
Until it becomes neutral, centered.
The Trend Shows
We now realize there actually should be
Great imbalances evident in the world around us.
There should be even much greater
Imbalances evident in our Alpha past.
1836 Times More Massive
The proton should be heavier than the electron.
We don’t note an equal number of anti-matter galaxies.
We shouldn’t expect there to be equal amounts
Of matter & anti-matter near the beginning of time.
The question that has haunted us for so long,
“Why is there something rather than nothing?”
Is related to asking “Why is there asymmetry?”
“Why are there imbalances present?”
Form and material things, substance itself,
Are products of the imbalances that
Exist within the cosmic balance—
Everything a great tapestry of imbalance.
And when we ask the question “Why are
There imbalances instead of why somethingness?”
It’s simple and unavoidable that imbalances exist.
Imbalances are natural inside any overall balance.
Should Have Known the Timeless Everything
Our finite world could only be an imbalanced system.
We exist because a balanced whole exists,
Which we incorrectly see as nothing,
And worse still, confuse with nonexistence.
The Forces Explained
All forces are probabilities, simply the
Most predictable events we experience.
In fact, gravity is the probability
For time to travel backwards.
Gravity is Time Moving Backwards
Gravity is trying to recreate the past.
In an expanding universe the past
Is increasingly denser; less expanded.
Gravity battles with the universe’s expansion.
Expansion is a Force From the Future
The trend of nature is not at all toward disorder,
But it is for balance to increase.
Being drawn toward the balance of zero
The universe invariably expands.
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
The universe’s expansion is time moving forward.
Cosmological expansion isn’t a consequence
Of some chance explosion in the past.
It is a force, just like gravity (Gravity’s losing).
Electromagnetism is Time Moving Forward
Electromagnetism is the perfect balance
Of the future’s absolute zero influencing the present.
The balance of the future, the most probable state,
Is a great cosmic attractor of all universes-change.
We can feel absolute zero pulling
And pushing the cosmos around.
We feel this balance of zero
As electricity and magnetism.
Moving Toward Greater Balance
Positive and negative particles
Are moving nearer to the balance,
For like particles will naturally repel
While opposite particles attract.
Imagine Electromagnetism in Reverse
Like particles would then attract
And opposite particles would repel.
Such a force would cause positive and negative
Particles to divide apart into separate groups.
In fact, when like particles such as
Positive protons bond together,
Time is actually moving backward.
The strong force is electromagnetism in reverse.
How it Works
The strong force battles against electromagnetism,
Causing positive protons to attract at short distances.
If protons and neutrons get close enough,
The repulsion of electromagnetism is overcome.
The strong force holds the nucleus together,
Just like gravity holds-creates stars and galaxies.
The strong force is the short range gravity;
Electromagnetism dominates on the larger scale.
The Power Broker Breaker
Something must overcome the strong force,
Because electromagnetism cannot break
The bond between like protons by itself.
Electromagnetism-expansion beats gravity-strong.
Forces Are the Possible Directions of Time
At some point in the future the weak force
Has to break down all the complex atoms in
The universe into individual protons and electrons.
The Weak Force is time moving forward.
The Power of the Weak
The weak force is an extension of electromagnetism.
The weak force grew out of electromagnetism
In the early stages of the big bang,
Prior to which there was just the electroweak force.
No Absolute Motion
Objects do not move about in Newton’s vessel
Of empty space because a real perfectly
Flat space would be absolutely chock full.
Thus, the relative, not absolute universe.
Objects can only exist as distinct forms
In a space where their opposites have
Been removed or displaced to create
A half space or parallel regions.
Space, the Final Frontier
This creates the present interdependence
Between matter and space which led Einstein
To describe space as an extension of mass.
‘Space’ seems to be the ultimate challenge.
The Ultimate Puzzle
We’ve learned about space relative to materials.
A common theme is that matter and space
Are two forms of the same thing. Not exactly.
Matter is really an absence of content.
All Told and Tolled
If the cosmos stretches totally flat,
Then matter and space are equivalent,
But this leads to a very dramatic switch
In how we evaluate the universe, whereby we see…
That particles are holes in a primary full space,
Rather than material things arisen
Above and more primary than space.
Matter is a bi-product of space.
Two Apples Means Two More Anti-Apples
For our universe to exist, an identical
But opposite anti-matter universe
Has to be removed from space.
Why are we separate from our other half?
Half and Half
Perfect symmetry doesn’t create nonexistence.
Perfect symmetry is just everything experienced
At the same time in the same space.
Opposites don’t cancel—we’re here observing half.
In Order For There to be Symmetry
From our place in the world, we cannot
Or would not directly observe unified symmetry.
It’s hidden, in our future or in our past.
We need to be here; there has to be asymmetry.
Nonexistence Isn’t; Perfect Symmetry Is
The combination of our galaxy
With an inverse anti-matter galaxy,
As combined, and every other pair of galaxies,
All exist joined together in ordinary space.
Taken and Placed Somewhere Else
And so matter is not more than space;
It is less than space; it’s what happens
When part of something whole is taken away,
Taken from the place and time we call ‘now’.
The New Normal
It’s difficult to re-normalize after such a switch,
But the fullness or substantive aspect we attribute
To matter is present in space more than in matter.
Dense matter is an absence, as in the tiny early universe.
Things Aren’t More Than Nothing
Mass and density are both a measure of absence.
Objects cannot exist unless their opposite
Is removed from that seeming emptiness.
Things are then less than everything.
Accentuating the Positive
A negative density can only
Exist in a negative volume, just as
Positive density can only exist in a positive volume.
This allows the mass value to always remain positive.
Matter is like bubbles in a water aquarium—
Tiny voids in a denser medium.
Density is a positive or negative void
That causes the curvature of the bubble.
We live in a positive bubble (volume)
That is actually collapsing,
As distant galaxies expand away from us
At speeds beyond the speed of light.
We detect the mass of a negative
Density as a point of zero volume,
Or what is called a point particle;
Electrons leaked over from the anti-time side.
Each as Half of Totality
The electron leak is in response to the
Existence of protons on our side,
Which is why the ratio of electrons
To protons in the universe is exactly even.
The Point of It
So why does the electron point particle
Have a defined mass, as opposed to infinite?
A negative density cannot be
Spatially extended in a positive volume.
Confined to a Point
The electron mass exists in a negative
Volume that opens up beyond the point of the
Electron in the ghostlike invisible partner.
Negative density also explains polarity of charge.
Positive and negative things are debts
That have to be repaid to a larger neutral space.
Charges reflect imbalances in a spatial content.
To create particles creates indents, or curvatures.
The only way for the plus-minus puzzle pieces
To exist separate from one another
Is if time originates from such a state,
An imbalance, then moves toward equilibrium.
Equilibrium never breaks down into imbalance;
Something does not come from nothing.
But time will start from something imbalanced,
And evolve toward balance, or ‘nothing’.
A Four Dimensional Space
When you combine an infinite past and future,
Time is-was relative (allowing the infinite).
Everything exists in one huge moment of now,
Which supersedes the possibility of existential change.
The Printed Pages
Time-worlds are imprinted within the great moment,
So the time of such worlds must travel linearly
From a beginning on to an ending.
Books have binding; movie frames are projected.
The Clock-Block Universe
At any tick of the clock the world is
In a particular condition or state,
Which is called lateral time, and each distinct
Moment is in an individual universe.
Linear and Lateral Time
How can distinctly separate blocks of space
Be simultaneously fused into a linear progression?
If they are fused then they are not distinct;
If they are distinct, then they aren’t really fused.
The Separate and the Common
What separates one block of time from another?
Only the definition of each time block
Maintains it as separate from other states, and
Spaces are always linked by a common existence.
The Sum of the Fragments
They are all embedded in the same great
Never ending moment—all fragments of the whole.
Each spatial pattern is a tiny internal part,
And only the patterns’ sum creates the whole.
There also exist directions in space which travel across
Or through the multiplicity of these blocks—
A 4-D that independently constructs
The lateral component of its surroundings.
Governed by the Innate Probabilities
Each individual direction moving through
The blocks becomes a sort of parent
To a lateral time world—its own 4-D space,
Strictly relative to that single parent direction.
Replacing Chaotic Freedom
Each of these directions in space are free to find
Their way through the overall multispatiality,
Except the direction of travel, and so each path
Is governed by the probabilities of the superspace.
A Very Strict Guidance System
The result is a fourth dimensionality of space,
In which the lateral surroundings of each 4-D
Parent direction are uniquely constructed
Strictly relative to that single parent direction.
The Series of Stills
Time passes through many spaces, and
Each block is an individual moment.
An object does not move through the spaces,
Rather it stays and exists frozen in each space.
Only time, which is actually a
Special direction in space, is able
To pass through multiple 3-D spaces,
Traveling from one moment to the next.
4-D Touches All of 3-D
An undivided existence of all
Conceivable 3-D configurations
Would inevitably create the 4-D of
Spatial directions passing between the blocks.
The Full Range
We will invariably observe a sampling
Of galaxies which reflects the widest range
Of configurations that pattern space dictates, plus
Ranges of solar systems, planets, moons, asteroids.
We will observe the whole range of geography,
The whole range of possible chemistry,
The whole range of other lifeforms,
The whole range of personalities.
All is then integrated into the parent direction,
Inevitably causing expansion and growth—
Letters, words, phrases, sentences, verse (uni).
We ourselves are the evolution of time.
Two Theories of Time. There are two dominant—and incompatible—theories of time: the tensed theory, and the tenseless theory. The tensed theory of time most resembles the popularly-held view of time. The tensed theory requires there to be a present moment (the ‘now’), and a distinction between an event in the past, present, and future (an event in the past was real, an event in the present is real, and an event in the future will be real). Notice that the ‘now’ moves. This apparent movement of the ‘now’ is an essential feature of the tensed theory of time.
However, there is a philosophical (and logical) problem to this idea of a moving ‘now’. Put simply, it raises the question which has puzzled philosophers: “How fast does time flow?”.
If the ‘now’ moves then it must move with respect to some time reference. So is it moving with respect to itself? Surely not. To say “Time moves at the rate of one second per second” is meaningless. Rather, the rate of time flow would have to be measured with respect to some secondary, external time reference.
However, in our earlier discussion it was stressed that there was no clock outside the universe, so there could not be any such external time reference. It is simply logically impossible for there to be a moving ‘now’. Time does not ‘flow’! So what is the alternative? The alternative is to consider a universe in which all of time is laid-out (just as the space dimension is laid-out), and there is no moving ‘now’. All times are equally real: as there is no special ‘now’, there is no distinction between past and future. This forms the tenseless theory of time.
The universe did not “emerge from nothing”. It is meaningless to talk of the ‘start’ of the universe, or the “emergence of the universe from nothing”, or any other term which implies change of the entire block universe structure over time. The entire spacetime block is laid out as one unchanging structure. Here’s a quote from Stephen Hawking’s book ‘A Brief History of Time’: “If the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor end: it would simply be.”
This means that any theory which attempts to explain the existence of the universe solely in terms of events which happened at the Big Bang would appear to be plain wrong. This includes any theory which suggests the reason for the existence of the universe is because the universe “emerged from nothing” (so-called ex nihilo solutions). This includes the theories of Tryon and Vilenkin which suggest that the reason the universe exists is because it quantum tunnelled into existence from nothing.
From an internet site: What is still not quite resolved in modern physics is how to properly combine Quantum theory with Einstein’s Relativity Theory. It appears evident that time is purely a direction in space but how then do we explain the uncertainty of quantum mechanics? Why does it appear that God plays dice with the world. The two theories, each having been proven by their usefulness, do of course tell the same story about this one universe, but we just haven’t learned yet to hear the story right. The best modern theory going is probably the No Boundary Proposal, put fourth by Stephen Hawking and Jim Hartle. This theory introduces a second reference of time which has been inappropriately named Imaginary time. Hawking, writes of the no boundary proposal, “The universe would be completely self contained and not affected by anything outside itself. It would neither be created nor destroyed. It would just BE.”
In the book Everything Forever, by Giorbran, it is explained how fourth dimensional spatial directions travel through a series of independent three dimensional block-like spaces, which in science we call states, but they can also be thought of simply as patterns. Hawking has already proposed that imaginary time can be found at right angles to ordinary time. It’s further explain that it is possible in an objective way to understand the universe to be like a book or a movie film. Each moment is a separate universe just like each frame of a movie or page of a book is separate. Yet those separate states simultaneously form the larger whole of the movie or the book. Seeing each moment as a continually existing place sheds light on why particles would then travel as a quantum wave, rather than linearly from point a to point b. This is explained better elsewhere, but if each moment of ordinary time is a solid, static, “block of now”, or field of space, then time each new moment is a distinctly different universe. What we call time is a spatial direction that travels through many static three dimensional universes.
In such a model, what we call time is created purely out of space. Special directions in space travel through each static three dimensional space, therein producing a new realm of space beyond three dimensions, which we call time. The interesting quality this produces, is how the inhabitants of this fourth dimension of space travel a linear path from past to future, but the surrounding environment of each path is shifting from one pattern to the next. This sends particles from one position in four dimensional space to the next without moving linearly. As a result, each individual observer in the fourth dimension experiences a continuous linear time, even though everything in their immediate environment is moving sequentially from place to place. Hence each temporal environment of four dimensional space is constructed relative to each independent observer.
One can imagine oneself smoothly traveling a direct and interconnected path through time, but in looking around at one’s environment, one sees that all other directions of time are broken, causing particles to appear to sequentially leap from one place to another. Paradoxically, everyone observes their own path and experience of time to be linear, while all else around them is sequential. In fact, when we explore time as a direction through many 3D spaces, we find qualities of curvature, time dilation, and spatial contraction, precisely as relativity describes those qualities within our own spacetime.
One can testify that Einstein’s speculations revealed here concerning infinite spaces in motion do at least carry us in the right direction in how they suggest space might have an unseen and possibly infinite content. Similar ideas were introduced by David Bohm, who claimed there are two kinds of order in nature, what he called explicate order and implicate order.
Implicate order for Bohm was a way of acknowledging how quantum mechanics reveals a hidden order where our world is influenced by the whole of all possible states. However, that order is much more visible than Bohm ever realized.
Unfortunately it wasn’t until Einstein died that scientists began to consider the a Many Worlds Theory in science. It’s safe to say that in Einstein’s time we were still getting used to the idea of the Big Bang, adjusting to the ever more visible vast sea of other galaxies, and the possibility of alien life on other planets. The universe and reality were still primarily considered purely solid and material based. Quantum theory, which eventually led to the theory of many worlds, had not yet fully withstood the test of time. Einstein even rejected its implications, saying “God does not play dice” with the world, even as he himself established that there is more to the universe than a single evolving moment of now.
In the explorations of timelessness it is revealed that ordinary space is not merely full of other empty spaces, but empty space is actually the whole of all physical realities; all the universes of the many worlds theory. Profound as it may be, if the theories proposed are correct, space is full, rather than empty. Material things are less than the fullness of space. In fact, it may be that space must include all possibilities in order to seem empty to us. So in summary, the universe we see is just a fragment nested in a timeless (everything) whole, rather than a single material world magically arisen above some primordial nothing. All universes exist without beginning or end in the ultimate arena of time, and each moment we experience exists forever.
Well, the block universe is close to what I have, too, in that it is there all at once, but Nobody Nowhere would extend that to be in no time and no space, since the forces that cause photons must then be balanced by the necessary forces for annihilation.
While I have been saying so far that there are very many relative scenarios, I can now state that there are an infinite number of them, as that is how many fractions there would be between Zero and One, this going on all the ‘time’, so, eternity, now, rejoins its infinite brother, in the relative way, which is not in an actual, absolute way. Everything happens forever.
To be engraved on Nobody Nowhere’s tomb:
Hitherto whereby whence we came?
Are we talking consciousness relative to ‘c’
Or fully present as events they occur thence they went?
Do we see a dead star shining brightly
In the fully present now albeit partially past then?
It is not only that there is nothing to make anything of, but that what is here as the universe plus what is beyond the universe (nothing) needs be the same thing for the All to be all.
Notes from Nobody: It was the Ionian Greeks who first developed the concept of an infinitesimal and fractal-type nature for particles, yet they either did not realize or include in their rendering, what absolute nature is: the difference between an infinite, progressive-type nature, and the absolute which is static or solid; infinity has no end, whereas the absolute does.
There is only one possible absolute state —nothing —for the following reasons: “things” are formed through interactions that cancel out at zero as a whole; “nothing” as the primal state is the only possible means of solving the dichotomy paradox of what is outside the Universe.
I suggest a returning to first philosophy so as to ask: how can a Universe be contained by something that doesn’t exist (the outside of the Universe), let alone expand into a non-existent place, which is the commonly accepted notion? I connect infinity with space and eternity with time, and both imply a continuation of sorts without end; whereas absolute space and time have boundaries where, again, there would be nothing outside of these. And this latter point is why I concluded that there is only one possible absolute state, which is the result of erasing concepts of space and time – there is no literal space and time, yet the concept of space and time manifests incrementally when the speed of light in an absolute vacuum is slowed down to varying degrees.
To clarify what I mean by speed of light in an absolute vacuum, based on the Uncertainty Principle: we are decreasing Planck’s constant to zero, and therefore the velocity of light increases proportionately. Infinite speed is the same as no speed because it takes no time for light to reach anywhere at all. It is already everywhere.
And why I say things cancel out is because ‘things’ are created from light. The mass created from the light – in the form of particle/antiparticle pairs – annihilate and release energy which in turn produces more mass; and all the mass of the Universe plus all the gravity in the Universe equals zero. Your center of gravity holds your body together, and because our brains process information at a far slower rate than the constant of light we observe things asymmetrically. But in reality it is impossible for things to have enough time to form because, absolutely speaking, there is no such thing as time from the standpoint of light. In other words, everything immediately annihilates but we break the symmetry because we separate ourselves into individual points that fluctuate and are differentiated at varying frequencies within the visible-light range – a very small portion of what I think must be an infinite number of frequency ranges.
From Stephen Hawking: There are something like ten million million million million million million million million million million million million million million (1 with eighty [five] zeroes after it) particles in the region of the universe that we can observe. Where did they all come from? The answer is that, in quantum theory, particles can be created out of energy in the form of particle/antiparticle pairs. But that just raises the question of where the energy came from. The answer is that the total energy of the universe is exactly zero. The matter in the universe is made out of positive energy. However, the matter is all attracting itself by gravity. Two pieces of matter that are close to each other have less energy than the same two pieces a long way apart, because you have to expend energy to separate them against the gravitational force that is pulling them together. Thus, in a sense, the gravitational field has negative energy. In the case of a universe that is approximately uniform in space, one can show that this negative gravitational energy exactly cancels the positive energy represented by the matter. So the total energy of the universe is zero.
More from Nobody: Zero as the non-existent absolute omits the ‘one.’ It implies that the literal one implied in science, religion and philosophy is an illusory construct of the two perspectives of the zero point: the one perspective is infinitely expansive; and the other perspective is infinitely contractive.
They serve as the basis for relativity, an infinite number of relative measurements and interactions, and as a whole they are declared the ‘one’ verse which arose from a singular point. Observations that support these models force scientists to focus on these observations, because that’s what science is understandably, but they also force scientists to disregard the logical means of extracting information that shows the flaws in our present understanding and how misleading observations can be.
When we look at relativity from those two perspectives, two illusory views based on an infinite number of non-dimensional points, we can easily see why both must fluctuate at an infinite rate of speed, and can also conclude that all forms of relative functioning (interactions) are the result of variations of that speed. Like a blank canvas that contains all pictures, infinite speed contains all speeds simultaneously, with zero (no speed at all) as the greatest velocity because it shrinks space-time to absolute zero – the zero point “here” and the zero point “there” are exactly the same, so no ‘traveling’ is necessary. It exemplifies absolute simultaneity.
Asking what is outside the one? Where we will say that there is no outside, which is the same as saying the exterior is non-existent, and that implies that the universe exists inside a place that isn’t there. So, there can only be infinity based on relative measurements, positive and negative, in all directions, etc., never as an absolute, and for that reason the zero is perfect because it merely represents the non-existent absolute. The one, on the other hand, implies an existent absolute that is impossible to reach.
The zero, which is never reached, serves only to solve the paradox created by a literal interpretation of relative functioning – laws, forces, etc. – which can never be unified as a single force, source, etc.. It would only seem so because the range becomes too short to differentiate observably, but as Zeno might say, it will never reach that absolute singularity. To the contrary, there is much evidence that the universe is fractal and the forces must naturally follow.
Infinity goes on forever without ever becoming absolute. So only the zero can represent what is beyond both infinities in order to justify relativity. Zero is the sum of the positive and negative number infinities, and is therefore the largest number.
Light has no speed in particular, it is infinite, until we create our own reality by setting the speed to ‘c’ relative to observable energy densities which in turn is relative to time dilation/space, which is relative to….etc..
All possible scenarios/realities are ‘occurring’ simultaneously at extreme fast-forward, like at infinite speed, like there is nothing preventing everything from having already occurred outside of time. We just don’t realize it yet because the mind is stuck in a very limiting timeframe and subconscious state of flux, separated from its pristine simplicity and stillness.
The moment we say everything is absolute is the moment we must say there nothing outside of it, paradoxical; but when we say nothing is absolute and then say there is nothing outside of that because it doesn’t exist, it solves the ultimate paradox of first philosophy.
The absolute can’t exist, so the greatest possible (temperature or integer or difference) must be equal to zero. The zero merely represents the fact that absolutes don’t exist, and hence confirms Einstein’s predictions of relativity opposing everything that is classically Newtonian in its limiting macroscopic views – mass, space, time, etc..
In other words, if you will, any object/energy quantum/particle is not absolute. It is relatively composed of an infinite number of infinitesimal points that are extended via time increments – of course, monopolar linear time that creates space.
Something can’t come from nothing, and so the net effect of the absolute universe is zero, not one. So we can logically conclude that there is a non-existent absolute with a relative internal functioning only when measurements are quantized by observers. In essence, the universe doesn’t exist until we say that the parts exist.
It seems logical to say that all the parts combined equal the one universe, but because our observations are only a small part of the total and the total negates all parts, each absolute point of any and all parts equals a non-dimensional point which doesn’t exist. The ancients said trying to figure out the absolute/God/Tao could drive you mad, and I agree because it implies an existence of non existence.
The present understanding of the universe, the generalized one, suggests that finite spacetime expanded into infinite space through the means of a false vacuum. Yet the external pressure would be infinitely greater than the energy of the false vacuum and no inflation would be possible.
I don’t imply that nothing or non existence exists. The point is that the ancients and modern scientists who aim to unify the forces into ‘one’ and proclaim the universe is one, propose an absolute theory based on “one.” I remain to proclaim that the absolute ‘one’ doesn’t exist and believing that it does is the same as saying that non existence exists. There can be no absolute one.
Between the non-existent one and zero, there is infinite speed, mass, energy, time, temperature, etc.. Only fractionalized quanta can exist. Whereas the absolute doesn’t take into account fractions, but completely merges them together to the absolute point of non-existence.
So, the relative circumstantial universe is above and below ‘you’, based upon a persistence of existence according to relative circumstances, without which neither you nor the universe can exist.
I have a problem with the logic behind the present model of a space-time universe as an absolute with no outside – for something to exist it requires space to exist in.
If we then might say that the universe exists within a greater dimension, that dimension would obviously be part of the universe and that would run counter to the logic of saying that the universe has no exterior space.
It’s rather a bothersome bird, unless we Occam Razor the whole literal universe and render it merely an illusion of relativity.
Existence, any existence, is the basis for relativity with the true axis being non-dimensional/non-existent.
If you consider a point of any measurement, that can be increased or decreased infinitely, it is always relative to other measurements. Whereas when we remove the point, completely/absolutely, there are no longer any measurements and so relativity ceases – relative and absolute are opposites according to the dictionary. So 1 must be relative, and 0 must be absolute; existence is relative, and non-existence is the only absolute. If we say ‘one’ is absolute, there is one and nothing else – dual; but if we say ‘none’ is absolute, there is none and nothing else – non-dual. Only non existence is absolute or, if you prefer, absolutes don’t exist.
We don’t have to delve into the infinitesimal or see beyond the infinite ‘expanse’ of the universe. We can simply know that relativity works on all scales for anything to function or any effect to be produced. The absolute I’m referring to is 0 K, and we both should know that 0 K doesn’t exist. So why argue for absolutes in a relative universe, instead of agreeing that the universe simply doesn’t exist outside of a relative timeframe and framework?
Einstein’s genius, imo, has to do with his capacity to extend empirical evidence using imagination and logic. The intrinsic properties of mass and motion were abolished by Einstein and replaced with relativistic properties that logically extend to all scales. His genius went as far as opposing scientists who believed, and still believe, that mass is an intrinsic property. Yet, it has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, by SLAC that all mass is dependent upon relativistic energy (light) – light which gains its relativistic properties solely from variations of its “absolute” speed (which is no speed at all because it is everywhere, anywhere and nowhere at the same damn time (no time!)
Instead of a space and time existing independent of the mind and body, the mind creates the impression of distance and the time it takes to traverse a distance by slowing down the speed of light (of which all things are made). Just as virtual particles in the ‘vacuum’ slow light to 300,000 km/s, observably, non-dimensional points are stretched to create spatial constructs (dimensions) by the various rates of light speed. The photonic interactions creating the virtual particles bind to form fundamental particles – with positrons and electrons making up protons and neutrons – where annihilations emitting photons create interactions with neighboring particles, etc..
I believe it was Leibniz who stated something like, the primal substance is motion. This is the whole crux of my premise and my challenge to science, and where Zeno applies to make the point that motion is a relative by product of a reduction in velocity – every point of motion is stillness.
So we can ask: what can break the symmetry of the elusive zero if it’s non-existent? The only logical means of breaking it is if it breaks its own symmetry – much like a non-existent photon which is its own antiparticle breaking symmetry to create particle/antiparticle pairs of which we observe one – by being eternally divided by itself. Zero divided by zero equals one because anything divided by itself equals one, and that is further proof that “one” is relative – dependent upon division in order to exist. Whereas zero is independent, simply because it doesn’t exist.
With your ability to not only ‘see’ Nobody Nowhere but describe the indescribable in (almost) understandable words, how come you don’t question your own purpose and point in being a part of it? Your ability to express these intuitive concepts in terms that parallel hard logical thinking is awe-inspiring. — Sponge
Philosophy’s logic can show us truth without proof (which proof we then no longer need, but it would be nice, for completion). So, we see that we are of one of the more workable scenarios of ‘everything forever’. This relieves the paradox of how all this could have been the one and only way.
I guess your training in math and logic gives you this ability but, at the same time, it seems to create a need to fit everything into the rules of science and it could be this that prevents you from seeking your own place in a reality that is so clear to you? Your artwork and poetry is maybe your intuitive curiosity screaming for release?
I always liked the liberal arts, but ended up in computer science, in programming, but that turned out to be an art. Science gives a lot of base information, so it would be hard to ignore that in favor of how we things things ought to be, but surely dogma can come to co-opt our brain wiring, firming it up further by subsequent firing.
I don’t feel the need to find a ‘separate being’ or a ‘god’, I’m just working on the ‘workings’ of human awareness. The fact that humanity evolved so late actually strengthens the possibility that the point of existence is progressing, in my opinion.
It is for sure progressing, out of its infancy, steps forward outdoing some steps backward, and so in the future…
The naturalist, for instance, would be able to absorb with awestruck reverence scenes of overpowering sublimity far beyond the simple prettiness on offer now. A musician would be able to hear and play music more exhilarating and heartfelt than anyone had ever dreamed of. The celestial music of the spheres heard by the mystics would become as a child’s toy flute in comparison to this grand and ultimate symphony.
The sensualist would discover that what had passed for deep and passionate sex had been merely a pleasant prelude. Erotic pleasure of an intensity that flesh had never known would become enjoyable without guilt, even by thought alone. A painter or patron of the visual arts would be able to behold representative vision in a holographic reality of indescribable glory and completeness.
Scientists would be able to apply a googolplex of neurons to their thought experiments, rivaling Einstein’s fortunate “ah-ha” moments, all of the time, to reveal much of what was unknown between heaven and earth.
Arguments by people insisting on their own selfish ways would melt into a new sense of increased reasoning, just as bad and aversive emotions would be greatly lessened by new and safer medical miracles. Wars would become much reduced, and humanity at large could finally progress beyond its everyday suffering. People would actually remember their car keys and glasses that had often and usually piled up at the vanishing point of the ‘lost and found’, which was at the end of the converging railroad tracks.
Of course, throughout the ages there had always been those rare and mystical moments as described above, for some enlightened and peaceful souls or those in love, but they were just fleeting glimpses of a rare light that lit their minds for a while as a flickering candle, when all one’s thoughts perfectly conjuncted, but then, as always, they soon dispersing and moving on into the oblivion of forgotten dreams.
The real question that intrigues me about our perceptions is this; As with dreams, do we (humanity) simply pick up perceptions from a complete but meaningless soup of ‘all that is out there for our senses to pick up’ and create our own reality, or is reality an existent state that can be reliably detected and deciphered by human awareness? In other words, are we gradually understanding an ordered reality or are we, through conscious awareness, arranging chaos into order?
Our senses, by us having them, also indicates that there is something ‘out there’ to take in; however, the senses are selective, such as colors only being of the visual part of the e/m spectrum. According to our intuition, we feel that objects move/change through a space, continuing in their essence, but logic can shake this intuition and shatter its foundations.
These things of the supposed absolute universe would have to be connected, since the Zero cannot be, and an absolute universe is what would be called the One, as solid, being all connected, but, alas, we cannot, therefore, have a One within the impossible Zero, and so the One becomes impossible, too, and with it falls the notion of indivisible, unbreakable basic substance, which, as well, would have been unmakeable, anyway.
We are left with a universe relative only to itself, and, at that, relative, in all directions, to the nonexistent Zero; so, as nothing outside can affect this relative situation, as there cannot be an outside, there is no possible cause to it, so the relative universe can have no beginning, it thus spawning infinite scenarios, as ‘everything forever’, consisting of all the fractionals between Zero and One, as also fractally large and small, all this going on even time and time again.
We ‘exist’ in a relative time dilation from what is essentially all at once. Is it as when we see a live star that was along ago already dead and gone, as its life light is still arriving; but, from light’s point of view, no time passed, since light is ageless, having no time component, as in no time passing, meaning, as well, no space in between. The true speed of light, as infinite (but really in no time and no space, as already ‘there’, simulating ‘infinite’), which we’ll call capital ‘C’, is even slowed by matter to ‘c’, with our finite consciousness operating even slower than that; thus, a time-framed, ‘tape-delayed’ ‘broadcast’ is witnessed, one that, like the dead star, has already happened. This ‘movie’ makes up our living film, all of this due to the stretching of the non existent zero point ‘center’ between forward-time photons and their backward anti-forms as gravitons, these photons meanwhile transforming into electron/positrons pairs which go on to make up all of what we call ‘matter’; however, there was no first matter that produced light nor no first light that produced matter, for all was/is at once, it ever being its own precursor, everything being required being already ‘there’.
Internally, in this kind of twilight zone, we do exist, quite the same as if all was of absolute material, yet, due to it all being relative, there is, ‘externally’, nothing at all and no change at Totality, and there never was. We are, in this instantiation, the temporary and shimmering gleams of “reality’s” rainbow, whose two ends can never reach the impossible Zero or One.
