Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Your body is a representation of the source of perspective. Without some kind of focus there would be no perception.
 Quoting: Chaol

Oh. I was considering the body as being an element of the environment. That the source was elsewhere. That the perceiver is...everywhere?

I adapted this understanding after a dim comprehension of this:

The illusion of a wheel turning
Is the complexification of its central source.
Yet the source cannot be perceived.
For the source is nowhere specific.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
I'm glad you remembered that one ("What is something before you assign it...").
 Quoting: Chaol

I cheated. I've begun re-reading this thread from the beginning.

[Speaking of electronic money:]

What happens when this energy is created in an abstract way with a few punches of the keyboard, without being tied to something else?

What is a representation when its potential energy has no limits, and is well beyond the limit of what the symbol can support?
 Quoting: Chaol

Other possibilities begin to branch off from the nexus that is "well beyond the limit of what the symbol can support".

Greetings!

If I may, a thought experiment.

Imagine that each probability that exists is a pathway.

There are many different types of pathways such as hallways, walkways and corridors, alleyways, midways, streets and avenues, broadways, highways, etc.

So, we have different "sizes" of probabilities. Some probabilities are more related to other probabilities so thus become "larger" as more things travel on them. A road can become a highway as more cars travel on it, for example.

Further, each probability can connect with any other probability. Any two or more pathways can connect, forming a "nexus of probabilities".

The more probabilities that connect, the larger the nexus is and the easier it is to travel. (Because the more probabilities that interact with it, the more relative it is to the probability you are experiencing. This enables you to not only walk down the street and have different things happen but also to travel in spacetime (as long as where you are going is relative to where you are most experienced).)

There are representations of this in outer space that you sometimes call 'black holes' and sometimes call other things. These 'black holes' exist everywhere to some degree. The larger the black hole, so to speak, the more relative it is to that which meets it.

You can see less relative representations of these nexi in physical places like street corners. Some corners (and the areas surrounding them) will be good for business or social exchanges, for example. Usually, the greater this metaphysical nexus is the greater the physical pathway becomes. Thus, we have cities, families, ideas, encounters, etc., all illustrating their shrinking or growing metaphysical nexus.

You can think of the center of a galaxy as a combining of probabilities both literally and figuratively. But these 'black holes' can also be found in your body and time/space, and everywhere else.

It's simply the force of attraction/repulsion (the element Chaon in ecsys).

Here's the interesting part. When probabilities comprising a nexus are being added at a substantial rate (and, thus, becoming 'too big' for itself) the probabilities will usually clump together and taper off the nexus. At this point it will continue to 'add to' a smaller nexus.

Our worlds began to diverge just before your industrial revolution (and what would have been the time of our industrial revolution).

A few hundred years ago there were many probabilities comprising this nexus. The feedback and feedforward of the concepts and activities surrounding the industrial revolution eventually enabled the polyfurcation of these probabilities.

Thus, there are now *many* worlds just like your own that are at their own stages of development, all having substantially diverged from yours nearly 300 hundred years ago.

Most likely there will soon be a scientific breakthrough in your world that will enable development of "warp drive" based not on traversing physical space but utilizing these ever-present nexus points to combine the "here" with the "there".

It is no different than experiencing a smell by using memory to recall a smell from 10 years ago rather than recreating the same smell in the present. Not using memory (a "black hole") will eventually sound as ridiculous to you as using rocket fuel to reach the moon. You already connect to non-physical worlds on a smaller scale (such as with intuition, or even sight/sound). You just don't realize how real these experiences are yet.

When we use a computer, for example, it is not that we are interacting with a separate physical object to perform tasks. The physical object is simply a (non-physical) representation of a miniature solar system of concepts. The computer is no more real that the word or even the thought of it. You've developed these representations in order to do something you could not otherwise do.

We can use our minds to add 1+1, or we can use a calculator.

Eventually (probably) you will be able to connect to a massive network using your mind instead of computer hardware. The "physical" representations you use now to perform these non-physical tasks is just so that the concepts and tools can be formed internally.

It is similar to you, as a baby, trying to verbalize words using your vocal cords in order to be able to *think* in a new way and do things you could not previously do.

So when you're looking at a physical object you're looking at a 'black hole'. Other things have combined together in a nexus of probabilities. In one probability the chair is a lake, in the other the lake is a chair. You can "get to the lake from the chair", so to speak.

When this world realizes that physical distance (and distance in time) is not absolute then we will begin to do things that science fiction hasn't even come up with yet. Things that I cannot even begin to explain.

This is most likely to occur after the current period, when it is realized the 'changes' most of us have envisioned would occur (for example, with 2012) are representations of non-physical changes. Like a dream.

It all begins with Representation.

Thanks.

Chaol, you told us that there was a substantial nexus point last September 26. It appears that at least a few of us on this board are enjoying good times, to our surprise and delight. My guess is that we have splintered off from the larger nexus and are now on our ways to something else. There would be other splinters too, of course, which are experiencing different flavors of the "big daddy" nexus.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
There is an exercise, of sorts, that enables one to see past the illusion. By staring intently into an other's eye or into your own eye when looking through a mirror, certain 'levels' can be reached each succesively moving through the illusion of existence until an area of no thing-ness is reached...an event horizon; and, perhaps THE event horizon.

I do not understand the mechanics, nor do I understand the significance or even the possibilities that [this exercise entails]. I was hoping you could help us to figure this out.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Logic is something that I work on. You have made enough comments about logic that I understand that there are many varieties. I see how magic can occur by simply tweaking one's logic.

Disappearing a wall reminds me of your "how to make a table disappear" post. I have scratched my head over that ever since you posted it. The instructions are clear enough, but I have yet to make anything actually disappear using those instructions.

But, then an object is still there because of an existing relationship, right? The same thing with a wall.

I know that I have work to do. I keep on keeping on.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6853315


Yes. The perception is there because of the relationships.

Change the relationships and it becomes less relative to your perception.

The same thing with anything.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
I understand the principle, but aren't there general rules that are specific for this reality, independent of one's interpretation of it?
 Quoting: Ambra 25480041


How could there possibly be? "this reality" is "one's interpretation".
 Quoting: Chaol


Thank you for your reply. I anticipated it simply being "There is no newborn!" :)

My question is then, how does "one's interpretation" develop and build upon, unless there is a frame of reference or anchor point stemming from "this reality"? Is it a random interpretation, born out of nowhere? Or is there on some level a [shared] "construct"?

In my "solo" trip of my reality, did I make all the interpretations up? If the newborn is exposed to some influences in the womb, as you mentioned, then there must be a pick up point somewhere. A sort of "shared meme".

Please, bear with me, while I am trying to understand, as I find this thread quite valuable.

What I mean is, the example above is what a newborn does. No values, names and classifications attached, while he is exploring this physical world where everything is new. Yet a wall is still solid, the floor still hurts if he falls and cries, gravity works while he drops his toy, and the toy ball he is holding is still round. He may not have names for it, but he is interacting with the same kind of physicality.
 Quoting: Ambra 25480041


None save for a newborn knows what a newborn does. Not even if we could remember being a newborn.

However, from day 1 it is safe to assume that the newborn already is beginning to represent. (Especially after being exposed to language, sounds, expressions of emotion, etc., inside of the womb.)

There are a few scientific articles that show that a newborn does not perceive the world as we do. Up until about ~2 years old, I think. This may explain our general lack of memory of ourselves when we were babies, as the representations would be very different than the kind that we now formulate.
 Quoting: Chaol


Let's say that the poor newborn hits a wall. None knows what he thinks and how he interprets the wall... However the mother sees the newborn cry.

At this point, the options I can think of at the moment, are:

1 - The "mother" is on a cosmic schizophrenic trip, believing she has a [nonexistent] crying baby, who just hit the [nonexistent] wall.

2 - The newborn has no interpretation of the wall, which to him does not exist, so he crawls through it [creating an alternate reality split]. To the mother, however, the wall does exist, so her logical step is to see the baby crying in her reality.

3 - Each point of perception (individual) uses a shared framework to create their interpretation. In the case of this Planet, the shared framework is dense physicality, where a wall is just solid, and when you hit it, it hurts.
The mother does not know what the baby is thinking, nor how he sees the world. But the baby is crying, because they are sharing the same "construct", and the wall is there for both of them.

Looking at reality with the eyes of a newborn is a great idea, which will rekindle curiosity and exploration, but can we really bypass all the "natural laws" of this physical world?
 Quoting: Ambra 25480041


Can you name one that is outside of your perspective?

If not, then the only "natural law" is perspective.
 Quoting: Chaol


Does it need to be outside of my perspective?

If I am merely observing a consistent, coherent, regular pattern, which appears to have the characteristics of a "natural law", the observation alone has now made it part of my perspective, but that does not change its nature as a general pattern.

The question is, was gravity already there as a building block of this construct (physicality on this Planet), or did I make it all up because there is no construct at all? If so, how did I come up with it?

In any case, I would say that the law of conservation of energy is outside my perspective, because it is what defines my perspective.

I am bound and condemned to perceive only what takes the least amount of energy to perceive. I cannot perceive otherwise, no matter how I wish it different. I can only go to perception-gym and gradually create logical steps, which consume the relative least amount of energy in incremental fashion. You said that the contrary is a universal no-no. Which implies that there are universal/natural laws.

Thank you Chaol for more clarity on this. :)
 Quoting: Ambra 25510283


I hesitate to answer these kinds of questions because of their implications. But I will do so anyway. Perhaps we are more ready than we were before.

One's interpretation does not develop and is not built upon. The interpretation is the geometry of relationships, and all have an equal value because there is nothing actually there.

There is no evolution, no change, and nothing is actually happening.

A thought experiment, if I may...

Imagine that you are in a one-dimensional, empty room. It is completely dark and there is nothing to perceive. Let's call this room Geniisys. Boom! You have named it something, creating the first relationship. This thought, this possibility, creates the second dimension. You write the name, Geniisys, in the air as you name it. This outlines a space. You now have three dimensions. You utter the name into the space you have formed, creating farther varieties of relationships. This goes on ad infinitum until all the stars, dust, light, culture, and tricycles are created. You are simply creating relationships out of something that does not exist, and this is endlessly recursive.

The above is an illustration of perspective. You take two things that do not exist to form a relationship that "does" exist (or at least one that you can perceive). You do not perceive of the things directly (because they do not exist) but only your relationship with them. This relationship does not really exist, either, but the value that seems to be created from the relationship is something that we can use, and thus seems real.

That which exists is true and cannot be perceived. It is beyond perception and without perspective.

So in a way we are experiencing our relationship with that which does not exist. There is an infinite variety of these experiences and perceptions because it is impossible for us to define this relationship.

Although these relationships seem to change it all happens simultaneously (as it is an illusion). It is your perspective that seems to change, not the relationships.

That is the nature of perspective.

So instead of evolving or building upon something you are perceiving the next logical relationship, so to speak. This does not happen in time. It seems to happen in time because you are experiencing these relationships at the speed of perception.

Independent of the illusion of time there is neither change nor evolution.

All of these things, you could say, are hitting you at the same time. You are simultaneously in a distant star 40 trillion years into the past (5 billions years by your measurement) and here and now eating cereal. However, you are only able to perceive one relationship at a time. You naturally perceive what is most related to an other perception.

This "one" relationship could include countless other relationships. You could be perceiving 500, 5 trillion, or 5 relationships right now, but it would still be a single relationship.

But you perceive it as one relationship, and it is perspective.

In this way what we consider evolution or building upon something is including more relationships into this geometry (what I call an expanded perspective, although that is a misnomer).

Right now we are surrounded by things we have represented. They may seem to appear separate from us, because we have made them so through our representation and logic, and thus interaction and potential energy.

When we "un-name" something and take away the representation we realize more of this nothing and instead of perceiving a relationship with it we absorb it into our perspective, so to speak.

That is to say, instead of it being perceived as being separate from us and something with which we can have a relationship we realize we are that thing.

In this way we build upon it by absorbing it into who we are (taking away the relationship). But at this point it cannot be perceived and we cannot know about it.

The more you cannot perceive something the more it is the source of who you are.

There is no shared construct. It is there but it does not exist. (Apologies, but English has its constraints.)

There is no newborn unless you are the newborn :)

Your perception of the newborn is the newborn's total existence. There is no need for further values to exist unless they need to. This would be a waste of energy. When you are not perceiving the newborn crying, baby does not. If you are talking on the phone with someone who has a newborn, neither the newborn nor the person are there in physical form. They exist only as they need to in your perspective (a certain range of what you'd call the audio spectrum, for example).

We perceive that which is most relative, yes. But we also do not perceive that which is not relative. The bottom of your foot may not be relative to your current experience. If you're not looking at it now, for example, it need not have color, texture, etc. (There is no need to render it, as one person on this thread has suggestively illustrated.)

The potential for the "shared construct" is there but it is always unused and does not exist. When you perceive of something else you are actually perceiving of yourself (because it is your perspective).

It's quite difficult to grasp that one, for most. "Of course my friend exists! I just spoke with them!" But you do not know of your friend outside of your current perspective. In fact, there is nothing you could have perceived outside of your current perspective. Outside it, there is nothing.

Gravity is not there. Only some effects of what you would consider gravity. If you're not measuring light at this particular instant, for example, it has no speed. When you want to measure light then the speed will become relative to your experience and you will see a value. (The speed of light is actually the speed of physical perception that will change in a bit, but that's an other story.)

You came up with the idea of gravity because it is logical to your perspective. Things are relative to the ground you walk on, usually, so things tend to stick there. Gravity is the same as living where you do, or thinking what you are, etc. It is an effect of perceiving things that are relative. The same force that attracts also repels. (It doesn't do either, but only seems to.)

The law of conservation of energy is not actually outside your perspective nor does it define it. It is the only method by which we perceive. That is to say, 'perception' and this law is the same thing.

In this way you are bound to perceive that which takes the least amount of energy to perceive. But it does not mean you are limited. It means you have only to make something relative to your perspective in order to experience it.

You are actually experiencing all things simultaneously, right now. But you do not perceive it. The nature of perspective is this energy conservation.

The moment you begin to perceive, you could say, is the moment when you perceive what is nearest to you first. Looking "over there" first is for the curious and is certainly possible, but it would take an infinite amount of energy to do so. (It's not a law, but you'd most likely give up long before you experienced results.)

Yes, you can only go to perception-gym and gradually create logical steps. But, 2 things:

1) If you can figure it out, you can relate one thing to an other, seemingly unrelated thing

2) You have all the time in the universe *lol*

Personally, I don't think I'm very patient. That's where Ecsys comes in.

Keep in mind that everything contains everything else (so to speak, even though most things are not fully-realized) so it's just a matter of finding that thing (or experience, whatever) in what is most relative to you now.

The table you're sitting at has all of the properties of the newest spaceship. You just have to find them :)

The "central source" is Nothing.

Things move because we make this nothing complex (so that we can perceive it, or at least have the illusion of perceiving it).

This nothing cannot be perceived, because it cannot be represented.

The perceiver is only where it needs to be.

The environment is an element of perspective, as is the body.

Hope this helps.

There is all ways a 'larger' nexus, but it's certainly possible.

A sister nexus, incidentally, is on October 15, 2012.

These are just points that values of perspective gather around and where the potential energy increases substantially.

...where things have the possibility to become more relative to your experience.

Anything could happen (personally, etc.)

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Chaol,

As I try to think of how to write this post I am laughing because it is interesting that when I first started reading this thread I couldn't understand what you meant when you were saying you couldn't say what you wanted to say with our crappy language. It seemed so foreign, but now it seems like I can't put any of these complex thoughts into written language. In fact I declare that all of this sentence and what follows akjrb5kwjqbtda04w59234tajdlns045wry slkDJBT13 QWEI346[139GHV-ASE436QAWEA dflgjw3p represent a future possibility where I create a better language with new symbols so we can all finally start expanding our minds easier.

Haha, until then tell me if this sounds right....

Because nothing exists outside of our perspective, if something is within our perspective it contains everything we are not currently perceiving because we perceive everything at once but only interrupt them certain ways. Thus to make a relationship to perceive the thing we want we must have to make a NEW symbol.

If time does not exist and a symbol already exists. Time is only a means of trying to explains an illusionary difference in the same symbol. The intrinsic value of these symbols does not change even if the relationships we make with it changes.

So if there is no difference in the "shape/symbol" then our reality or "time line?" does not change?

Time only exists if shapes in space are arbitrary, but they are not arbitrary positions they are moves by the law of least energy. Or perhaps better put our perspective appears to move through time because symbols are changing based on the law of energy conservation / what is most relative.

Nothing exists outside of our perspective, it is impossible to perceive of something if we cannot form a relationship to add it to our perspective.

So by being human I suppose we have a unique chance to use our brains to logically create a new symbol which must create possibility because that symbol never existed before and now it does so whatever it was you wanted it to represent has just been brought into your perspective. And though it is a symbol, because everything already exists, inside that symbol exists the actual thing you want to represent. Then through our actions we can make the representation more relative until it becomes part of our reality? We just have to focus on the things that are most relative to that representation?

My question I guess is how can we find the thing or experience to make the things we want more relative?

Also what are your thoughts on sensory deprivation?

Thanks,
Dodec

In this way you are bound to perceive that which takes the least amount of energy to perceive. But it does not mean you are limited. It means you have only to make something relative to your perspective in order to experience it.

You are actually experiencing all things simultaneously, right now. But you do not perceive it. The nature of perspective is this energy conservation.

The moment you begin to perceive, you could say, is the moment when you perceive what is nearest to you first. Looking "over there" first is for the curious and is certainly possible, but it would take an infinite amount of energy to do so. (It's not a law, but you'd most likely give up long before you experienced results.)

Yes, you can only go to perception-gym and gradually create logical steps. But, 2 things:

1) If you can figure it out, you can relate one thing to an other, seemingly unrelated thing

2) You have all the time in the universe *lol*

Personally, I don't think I'm very patient. That's where Ecsys comes in.

Keep in mind that everything contains everything else (so to speak, even though most things are not fully-realized) so it's just a matter of finding that thing (or experience, whatever) in what is most relative to you now.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
[snips] When the illusions interact a reality is created because the relationship between the illusions is real.

 Quoting: Chaol


quite important, by the way, for the curious.

It is the nature of existence itself.
 Quoting: Chaol


An analogy would be how we experience a movie.

In a movie still images are put together in a logical order. The images are representations of something else, illusions.

A reality is created not from the illusions (images) but from the relationships between the illusions.

Now imagine all of these images lay on the ground in a random order. Your mind will automatically begin to relate some images together in a way that makes sense to it. (It doesn't matter where you start, like in a dream.) Your mind will then perceive a reality based on the relationships between the first few images. It will also automatically find more images that it thinks should come next. It may be a different kind of logic from someone else, but it makes sense for the narrative you're putting together.

The point here is that you're creating something that seems real by putting two or more things together (that are not real).

Chaol, thank you for another great post. Could you please elaborate in a way that is more relative to our(my) current understanding of what you've taught?

Just so that you do not have to repeat yourself, I do understand that we(I or perhaps more accurately "this"):

---experience that which takes the least amount of energy(or as stated previously, the least number of interactions) to perceive.

-and-

---can utilize the "genius" to call a particular flavor of experience into perspective by "naming" something "new" or seemingly "unrelative"(lol, which is funny because nothing is perceptible outside of relevancy) both in language and in physical terms (as physicality is the current (most logical) language of perspective), then allow that "representation" to interact with the representations that are already perceived (I understand that none of it "truly" exists, so any perspective is possible as none of it exists anyway). Once the desired outcome is relative, it will be experienced (yet it has been experienced all along).

I realize the steps one takes to "find" them are subjective, but it would be great if you gave some(more) advice on this.

Thanks a ton.

Keep in mind that although scientists can theorize about (and find evidence for) particles that travel faster than the speed of light, they can only perceive the results at or less than this speed of light.

An inch will be measured as an inch, even when it's not.

The instrument that is used for the measurement is rarely considered, but often they are observing the effects of the instrument rather than what is being observed.

You could say that the instrument is a reference of interpretation. Looking through an electron microscope we do not see electrons. We see the electron microscope.

If you invented a new gestalt spectrometer that is meant to capture light's oompa particles, you'd probably find them. You might even consider the oompa particles to be a new property of light. Others could then find the same particles (verifying your results) using the same instrument, but not other instruments.

So, while faster-than-light particles 'exist' they cannot be perceived.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
Hi Chaol! :) Love that you're back and your recent posts.

Making the wall irrelevant makes sense, as does the concept of experiencing any thing via relationship to me (perspective). Any thing that is... re-incorporated (?) is therefore not experienced/seen because it is not "outside" of me to experience. (Hoping this is making sense. I really did have a few big a-ha pings today, I promise.)

I'm trying to understand how the below statement fits in with making unwanted things (walls, bills, whatever) irrelevant, as well as how it fits into the statement that one cannot truly perceive that which is irrelevant to one's perspective.

Are you using "irrelevant" differently in each case?

For bonus points, take a look at what you really want and ignore it (make it irrelevant).
 Quoting: Chaol


What's tripping me up is that it sounds like what you're saying is that for both wanted/desired experiences (what I really want) and un-wanted experiences/aspects/values, we are to make them all irrelevant?

- Make it relative and irrelevant, and then I will experience that (what I really want).

- Make it irrelevant, and I will not experience that (not experience the walls, therefore walk "through" them to keep that analogy).

Does not compute. I don't think this is actually what you're saying... ?

So, thanks so much for your help and clarity!

:)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 918001


Good question.

In both cases, you are setting up an experience where the wall or the bill is not needed.

They become irrelevant to your perspective. In these new realities:

1) There is no need to go through the wall; and

2) The bill does not need to be there (or does not need to be paid, etc)

Let's say for #1 you are stuck in a room with no exit. Unless you find a way to somehow go through the wall you will die.

So you think back to this thread and, after a few frustrating hours, find out how to make the wall irrelevant to your experience.

[for sake of illustration and lack of better terms...] One moment you are sitting on the floor with your eyes closed. The next moment you are sitting in a park, outside of the wall. You will probably not have a memory of the transition, as it is no longer relevant. You may look over and see a wall that kind of makes you feel uncomfortable. You will remember that a few hours ago you were at home because this will be your new perspective. Even though the 'old perspective' still exists it is no longer relevant for you.

If there is someone else in the walled cell with you they may see you de-materialize as you walk through the wall. But your experience will most likely be very similar to the above.

Hope this clarifies it a bit.

So what you're saying is that there is an exercise that allows you to perceive beyond your perception?

 Quoting: Chaol


It allows you to see past the immediate illusion of what we consider to be real...as in "reality". Perceiving beyond your perception is impossible, right?

Amazing post, Chaol!

I've finally bridged the gap between ecsys and physics :))

From what you've told us though, I can't help but wonder if you are using a shared construct. I have a vague idea of what it might be.. just thinking 'out loud.'

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
How does one determine(find) the most logical steps to a desired outcome? Is there an exercise that we can do to practice this? Is the genius such an exercise? If we lose awareness of the transition from one frame of experience to another, how do we ever become aware of making an edit to perspective in the first place? How is it possible for you to maintain a recollection of your less relative realm while you spend time "here"?

Thanks Chaol. Awesome stuff.

Chaol,

Are you familiar with the idea of the 'death defy'er' in the works of Carlos Castaneda.

If so, do you think it is possible that there was more than one?

(If you ignore this question, I will interpret this as a sign that you don't wish to engage me on your thread and I will withdraw from posting here again.)
The engravings translate to "This space intentionally left blank."

The prayer is inscribed in an ancient script, rarely used today. It seems to be a philippic against small insects, absent-mindedness, and the picking up and dropping of small objects.

The gate is open; through it you can see a desolation, with a pile of mangled bodies in one corner. Thousands of voices, lamenting some hideous fate, can be heard.
The way through the gate is barred by evil spirits, who jeer at your attempts to pass.
