The following essays explicate, take apart and re-examine the various philosophical and scientific theories of reality through an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach. Beginning with an exploration of the four basic ontological positions; Idealism, Dualism, Non-Duality, Materialism, alongside the theories of Holographic and Informational universes in addition to my own Northwestern/ Wildflower NW/WF. Northwestern being the space component and Wildflower being the time component of a theory of Place, which is also a unified theory of Both, the mixture of uncollapsed, unactualized quantum states. Contrasting the space-time relativistic model (NW) and the time-space atemporal model (WF) of quantum physics, pointing toward a unification in the time-inexclusive, non-spatial, non-temporal state of Bothness that is represented through the experience of Place.
It’s not that they are really non-spatial or non-temporal, but that they are a hyperdimensional merging of position (space) and momentum (time), becoming not-two, and their state of not-two reduces them to one.
We have heard this in the past, first through comparative mythologies, then in the mystery schools and their introduction—through the Scholastics and Neoplatonists—into natural philosophy, quantum physics, and finally into the humanities as it relates to consciousness studies. The latter, which in my assessment, is the hybridization of philosophy and physics into a true theory of everything (Physics + Mystery school) that not only accounts for the physical world, but for the natural and human-altered worlds as well (natural accounting for the pre-human world as it has been for the vast majority of time/ life on Earth).
Thus far science and the humanities have existed in exclusion to each other, because their unification would have meant holding two contradictory, but valid, ideas at the same time. A feat perhaps too demanding for limited human minds, but business as usual for the larger consciousness system of which individual minds are localizations in time and space.
Usually the conflict has been about Proof of Concept, that is, the onus of an idea is on the philosophical/ logical inception to provide a Proof of Concept for scientists to recreate. What I hope to provide is a Proof of Concept of the Time + Space, Northwestern/ Wildflower theory of Place with evidence drawn from other competing Theories of Everything.
We will begin with the phenomenological structure of which my theories are based, and the basis of our experience of the universe as a whole; that is, the unchanging, unmoving form of the absolute. From this we will find that there is nothing that exists outside experience or that is not a part of consciousness. An idealist position that some readers may be resistant to, but who may also find themselves gradually coming to accept.
The Time of the Place is where you want to beTweet
