Where do the three dimensions of space come from?

Where do the three dimensions of space come from?

I made 3D-printed models of the quantum level movements that I speculate could unfold as the waves and particles of matter, and as gravity. They show the synergy of relatedness that our reasoning brains may veil when we analyse as observers, rather than live as participators. Read on…

A Christmas Post to Honour the Holy Spirit

After two thousand years of theological debate, the work and dynamism of Holy Spirit in people’s lives remains enigmatic, as I suppose spiritual issues always should be. But let us celebrate one step forward in understanding and imagining. It comes from a study of languages at a time when gender equality-with-diversity is growing in importance around the world. Holy Spirit is the feminine principle in the One living Godhead.

Beyond Materialism: ‘some sort of panpsychism’, or not?

For three hundred years or more, scientific method has been based on detached observation. Experimenters study ‘it’ as if from a dualistically separate rational mind, which philosophically is also an ‘it’ (a noun), but a different sort of ‘it’.

Then came quantum physics (now for about 100 years!), with its discovery that every measurement is an act of participation. No longer is the rationalising mind dualistically separated from ‘the experimental system’. Philosophers, metaphysicians, cosmologists, and the general thinking public are placed in a quandary. The old Greco-Roman categories of matter and mind seem inadequate to explain the interface,

Triunity – nondual life process philosophy

Triunity, like monism and dualism, is a philosophical approach to make sense of lived experience. Triune process philosophy extends the New Science of adaptive systems into a theory of knowing that overcomes the mind/matter dichotomy. In this new approach to epistemology, an identical fabric of informational processing accounts for movement within both the material cosmos,…

Pure relatedness as Pure Spirit

Pure relatedness as Pure Spirit

Now that Materialism has melted its lumps and particles into a quantum gravity spinfoam of curling strings, we human beings can breathe a sigh of relief and feel secure with each other again. No longer must we obey old-style scientists who tell us, in their lab-coated priestly garments, that we are only randomly moving aggregates of molecules moving with momentum. No longer must we see ourselves as matter bouncing off each other as our separated mental worlds collide. The horror movie of existential aloneness is at last ended.

What do I mean by synergy?

Energy we know. We feel energetic or flat. We feel warmth from a fire and relax, or the cold blast of a wind in winter and tense up. Many of us have felt small electric shocks by accident, and some have been sadly tortured by them. If we call out to someone in the distance,…

Facts, feelings, and science

Facts, feelings, and science

A healthcare scientist once said, “There are facts, and there are feelings.” I doubt that it is such a clear distinction, and so I responded, “A free-thinking human being, including a scientist, chooses what counts as a fact! The neuroscientist Antonio Damasio showed that our power of choice depends on our feelings. It’s circular!” Which comes…
