“But Einstein came along and took space and time out of the realm of stationary things and put them in the realm of relativity—giving the onlooker dominion over time and space, because time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.”
Dimitri Marianoff, Einstein: An Intimate Study of a Great Man

Amit Ray
“Beyond the corridor of our space-time there are infinite numbers of universes, each of them is governed by its own set of laws and physics.”
Amit Ray, Enlightenment Step by Step

Bill Gaede
“The mathematicians are the priests of the modern world.”
Bill Gaede, Why God Doesn't Exist

Robert A. Heinlein
“You are telling me that I did something because I was going to do something.”
“Well, didn’t you? You were there.”
“No, I didn’t—no… well, maybe I did, but it didn’t feel like it.”
“Why should you expect it to? It was something totally new to your experience.”
“But… but—” Wilson took a deep breath and got control of himself. Then he reached back into his academic philosophical concepts and produced the notion he had been struggling to express. “It denies all reasonable theories of causation. You would have me believe that causation can be completely circular. I went through because I came back from going through to persuade myself to go through. That’s silly.”
“Well, didn’t you?"
~ By His Bootstraps / Robert A. Heinlein”
Robert A. Heinlein, Astounding Science Fiction, October 1941

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Everything dreams. The play of form, of being, is the dreaming of substance. Rocks have their dreams, and the earth changes....”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven

Christophe Galfard
“The air around you is filled with floating atoms, sliding down the Earth's spacetime curve. Atoms first assembled in the cores of long-dead stars. Atoms within you, everywhere, disintegrating in radioactive decays. Beneath your feet, the floor - whose electrons refuse to let yours pass, thus making you able to stand and walk and run. Earth, your planet, a lump of matter made out of the three quantum fields known to mankind, held together by gravity, the so-called fourth force (even though it isn't a force), floating within and through spacetime.”
Christophe Galfard, The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond

Christophe Galfard
“Quantum particles do not behave like tennis balls, but like the quantum particles they are. To get from one place to another, they take all the possible paths in space and time as long as these paths link their starting point to their end point. The particle [...] literally went everywhere. Simultaneously. To the left and to the right of the post. And through it. And outside the room. And into the future and back - until the moment when it hit a detector on the wall.”
Christophe Galfard, The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond

Victor J. Stenger
“The claim that the universe *began* with the big bang has no basis in current physical and cosmological knowledge. The observations confirming the big bang do not rule out the possibility of a prior universe.”

“The Universe is continuously emerging as a fresh creation at every moment. All point to this same, extraordinary insight. The Universe is not static, nor is its continuation assured. Instead, the Universe is like a cosmic hologram that is being continuously upheld and renewed at every instant.14 A universal encouragement found across the world’s wisdom traditions is to live in the ‘NOW.’ This core insight has a clear basis in physics: The present moment is the place of direct connection with the entire Universe as it arises continuously. Each moment is a fresh formation of the Universe, emerging seamlessly and flawlessly.”
Alexis Karpouzos, Cosmology: Philosophy & Physics

“Everything I do now
Was once an unremembered dream.
-Spoken by Dr. Perry after return from the chrysalis”
Don Murphy, EPOCH

“You have to get old because of the geometry of spacetime.”
Brian Cox, Forces of Nature

“You must accept that the universe does not owe you anything. It has already given you everything.”
Don Murphy

جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel
“لقد كنت الناجي الوحيد من شعب منقرض وهو يطأ أرضاً جديدة، كنت كقادم من زمن آخر، مسافر كوني، أو حتى كائن من كوكب آخر هبط على الأرض، وفضلاً عن ذلك كنت مجرداً من كلّ القوى. شعرتُ بالتيه لكأنّي أحد الإسرائيليين في سيناء، ولكنها كانت غابة خضراء هذه المرة.”
جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel, صراع الأقنعة

“I have a questions for you
Am I alive at all ?
Do I live as a human
or am I just a madman
who flies somewhere
in spacetime
and seeks a way
how to become the main hero
of your next favorite book”
Lucy Hunady

“The fractal nesting of the relationship between space and time at different scales causes phase transitions, as the influence of one force changes with respect to another, and from this we get the astonishing variety of behaviors in the material world.”
R.A. Delmonico

“All forces are multi-dimensional vibrations. The geometry and dynamics of dimensions will become important going forward.
In a hologram, what is the location of the information?
The holomovement is not static and the information is not perfectly distributed.
Space and time are built up from entanglement.
Consciousness is also entangled. The fractal nesting of event horizons
For the photon, the dimensions involved are not the same as they are for the electron. The idea that all behaviors occupy the same spacetime is probably not correct. These forces and fields shape the spacetime they occupy in particular ways. In other words dimensions are dynamic and could also be virtual in some respect.
There is a dynamic tension between space and time.
Could the density of time create the pressure we call gravity?
Does scale have a fractal quality?

The fractal nesting of the relationship between space and time at different scales causes phase transitions as the influence of one force changes with respect to another. From this we get the astonishing variety of behaviors in the material world. I suspect that as the complexity increases, the dynamics of the dimensions is affected.

The photon or electron is not a thing, it is a description of a relationship.

The universe appears to be differentiating into a fractal computational geometry.

Spacetime is fractal in the golden mean.”
R.A. Delmonico

“If every point in the volume of a sphere is plotted on the surface of the sphere as an interference pattern of wavelets, the surface is a hologram of the interior. The point at the center of the sphere is the lowest or fundamental frequency. All points inside the sphere are expressed on the surface as vibrations. Waves are not discrete like the idea of quantum particles, the relationships are discrete. These vibrations exist because the universe, like life, exists in a stream of energy. Each of the four forces are associated with a particular scale in relationship to the whole. As we move through scale, the relationship of one force changes with respect to another. It is possible that everything is built up from the inverse relationship between space and time. You can think of empty space as a region where time has more pressure. Scale becomes important and dimensions are not discrete, in fact they could be virtual shadows of higher dimensional objects. Everything is fields generating forms from vibrations at different energy levels and scales. Anything (like a proton) with the property of continuity has harmonic regularity. It has a harmonic relationship to the stream of energy like a musical note vibrating inside a flute.”
R.A. Delmonico

“When does a wave behave like a particle?
When one or more dimensions collapse to zero or nearly zero.
Action in a field creates the spacetime it inhabits and dimensions, like particles, may be virtual.
Gravity is a variation of scale and ratio is the only thing that is discrete.”
R.A. Delmonico

“Information is a difference that can make a difference, truth (highest possible symmetry) is information that doesn't change and randomness (self referential noise) is a difference that doesn't make a difference.
Truth lives in the macro world, the micro world is uncertain.
Truth lives in the past, the future is uncertain.
The micro future is formed into the macro past.
Every engine takes advantage of a difference.
Nature is lazy and everything takes the path of least action.
Behavior is built up from a quantum of action in a field.
Ratio may be the only thing that is discrete.
Action creates the spacetime it inhabits, including the dimensions.
As a particular force moves through scale, one force can overtake another, affecting the geometry of the dimensions at that particular scale. There is no fixed geometric grid. The structure of reality is a computational geometry that is fractal in nature.
Gravity is a variation of scale. A region of space with less matter has denser time.
A region of space with more matter has denser space, a pressure gradient.
Information is not stuff it is relationships.
The past is material, the future is possibility.
Our models contain virtual partials and so we should be looking at virtual dimensions.”
R.A. Delmonico

“Entanglement means some aspect of our description of behavior can't be separated by space, time or dimensions.
Clocks entanglement and dimensionality in spacetime:
A clock runs at the same rate for an object falling into a black hole (but slows to zero at the event horizon for an outside observer) as it does in empty space and at the exact center of a black hole, if it is not spinning because gravity cancels itself out. Since the object's clock rate remains the same the whole time the difference is scale and dimensions. I would suspect that the scale of the other three forces is reduced proportionately. We might describe this as a fractal nesting of scale.”
R.A. Delmonico

“I still live
And I feel
That I will never die;
All my life
An infinite time”
Jazalyn, The Universe in My Eyes: Existential Love and Life

“So, which is it? Does matter create mind? Or does mind create matter? Scientific materialists have never made any progress whatsoever in explaining how matter produces mind. Mind can easily explain the production of matter – via autonomous Fourier immaterial frequency functions finding collective expression in a Fourier material spacetime world. It’s the collective rather than individual nature of this mental activity that makes it seem “physical”, and which gives rise to the delusion of the existence of matter. It’s all in the math.”
Mike Hockney, Black Holes Are Souls

“The dimensionless domain = the domain of orthogonality = the domain of light = the domain of mind = the Fourier frequency domain. The dimensional domain = the domain of phase (non-orthogonality) = the domain of matter = the Fourier spacetime domain”
Mike Hockney, How to Create the Universe

“Past, present and future are in reality self spacing itself not to be by itself. The purpose of self is companionship, friendship, love; love so love.”
Wald Wassermann

“Self is always now and the purpose is always love.”
Wald Wassermann

“A computer can be more harmful than a gun and more useful than a pen.”
Ameer Moavia

“Your present is responsible for each and every minute of your past and future”
Ameer Moavia

“Spacetime is self engineered for love.
Space to embrace.
Time for love.”
Wald Wassermann

“At any time, there is only oneself.
Self is differentiated for companionship.
Companionship verily the purpose of self.”
Wald Wassermann
