Why Quantum Mechanics isn’t Weird (closer to a straight answer, but not quite)

In clarification to the last post, I am writing an addendum. The reason I said Quantum Mechanics isn't weird is because it is the basis of our reality and also because the theory itself is very successful. So successful that those who use it don't even need to know how it works, however, to really … Continue reading Why Quantum Mechanics isn’t Weird (closer to a straight answer, but not quite)

Whose Nature?

There are two approaches to nature writing, which double as the two approaches to nature in general and two approaches to being in the world; either we attempt to explain it, or let it explain itself. The latter digs deep into the essence of things (objects), while the former makes a cursory pass over the surface to pick up whatever it finds. We could call the latter art and the former science.

Theory of Everything as the Ultimate Art, or The Ultimate Art as a Theory of Everything

All theories aim for beauty, parsimony and elegance assuming of course that the universe is constructed in such a way. Although at times it may not seem like it, evidence consistently shows a tendency toward novelty and some kind of gradual progress in many domains at once. This progress is much like evolution but on … Continue reading Theory of Everything as the Ultimate Art, or The Ultimate Art as a Theory of Everything

The Measurement ‘Problem’ as a Unit of Measurement, not a Problem, part 2

The following is a continuation of a previous post entitled, Consciousness and the Measurement Problem pt.1, and can be found via a link at the bottom of this post. Traditionally quantum theory has been treated as a measurement problem rather than a theory or standard of measurement; a case in point being that we don’t … Continue reading The Measurement ‘Problem’ as a Unit of Measurement, not a Problem, part 2

The Recovery of Time

one of experience, so that one’s experience becomes that of writing. Of setting down and interpreting phenomena at the expense of having new experiences, so the writer’s existing experiences are all that he/ she has to draw upon. Continually examined and re-examined for universal truths that apply to all experience.

Purpose in Place, We Are Not (a product of) Our Environment

When addressing Purpose in Place, a lot of organizations speak to people who have either already found their place or are already living, doing or practicing their purpose. But these are not the people that need the help, or the attention. Of course, those who need attention rarely get it and those who get it … Continue reading Purpose in Place, We Are Not (a product of) Our Environment

Blackfoot indigenous vs Large-scale Modern societies

A Comparison of Meaning and Quality of Life in Indigenous vs Contemporary Western societies https://gatherfor.medium.com/maslow-got-it-wrong-ae45d6217a8c There is a lot to say for the convenience and extravagant ways of living that most modern societies offer. Food is accessible and often 'free', meaning that if you really, really need it, you can put on your most slovenly … Continue reading Blackfoot indigenous vs Large-scale Modern societies

Both/ And: Dealing with Duality

Dualities are ubiquitous in nature, but that doesn’t mean that they are what they seem, otherwise physicists wouldn’t be looking for a unified theory. Perhaps the most enduring dualities are the mind/body; particle/ wave; space/ time; materialist/ idealist, but there are many more, for instance; as above, so below; energy and matter; macrocosm and the microcosm; subjectivity and objectivity, but perhaps the most important is position and momentum, otherwise known as the Uncertainty Principle, or the ‘measurement problem’.
