All be it indirectly (through our whole being‘s sense organs and brain), we are given an experience that is an indication of the “phenomenal aspects of reality”, the aspects of reality that our whole self is sensitive to according to his or her sense organs (link to blog the “phenomenal aspects of reality” https://realityhc.wordpress.com/2016/10/08/the-phenomenal-aspects-of-reality/).
Our whole “sees” the light (and projects our experience of vision for us to think that we see) that bounces off the surface of things in the real world that are not too small. Sub-atomic particles are too small for this. En mass and intensity they can split atoms, damage genes and cells and burn things. Depending on how they are “observed”, their existence is indicated by their radiation (wave like quality) or by the mark left after their passage (as particles), say through a sensitive film that leaves a hole or a mark of where they were.
The precise existence of sub-atomic particles is uncertain in our space and time references; sub-atomic particles seem to “jump” and “associate” right through our references. I think things that “exist” at the speed of causality (= C, also “happens to be” the speed of light, other electro-magnetic waves, sub-atomic particles/radiation and gravitational waves), “move” in space-time, in what may be considered the very fabric of the cosmos. It may also include black holes, dark energy and dark matter beyond our visible realm. This idea of sub-particles, photons and other electro-magnetic radiation, and gravity waves existing in space-time, to me helps explain how entanglement works as described in quantum mechanics – where associated particles are related across significant distances the moment one of them is observed or determined in our space and time references.
Let me consider here how our existence as projection, our “projected actuality”, projected by our whole being through the Central Nervous System, is like the quantum state.
I think something like entanglement also occurs in our reality that is projection, in very familiar instances. When we communicate, it is with an another who invariably sees not him or her self but an image of the other’s whole being, and vice versa, where we meet “entangled” as opposites in association over particular perspectives and contexts that, for our time together, determines one another in our projected realities. Empathy is a real thing, but it occures in projection, of another’s sense projected by our whole. It is again, an association that determines one another. Intuitive sense seems to transcend the normally dominant cognitive boundaries in a less constrained flow or connection where, in the analogy of the quantum world, our distances, time and identity seem to join or mesh as if in space-time.
Smooth synchronised movements in dance, sports, martial arts, music but also any activity or work, requires an integration across different parts within an individual whole, and in separate whole others when we play, hunt, dance, perform, work etc., with others.
The synchronised integrity of parts within our whole is stifled and blocked by the rigidity of cognitive knowing. We are familiar with risking the seeming security of know-how‘s certainty and control, to allow and let go to or “go with” a greater flow we become a part of, whether in one’s whole being or in association with others.
In projection, we may exist in our sense of space and time. We may also exist in our actuality as projection, as a part within our whole, and be “connected”, with different realms, identities and states of being, as if in space-time. Perhaps we may understand in this way premonitions, telepathy etc. where the normal boundaries of time, place and identity, seem transcended, beyond the references that normally determine us and what we experience or happens in our reality.
References and contexts that determine what we experience, are parts of our projected reality.We may as self or identity in our reality, observe the laws of Newtonian physics (of billiard balls and planets) in the world we experience. It is a part of our projected reality consistent with space and time, a functional indication of such aspects of the real world, with our sense of being in it and its time, that is our tangible world of our here and now.
We are normally dominated by this indication of the world. We are conscious of its space, and change that occures apparently through our sense of time with the observer, us, as the experience-er, before the witness.
As remarkable as the quantum and relativistic world may be, reality must be more than the sum of both and of any other aspects of reality, which include the Newtonian in space and time, life, chemistry, wholes, consciousness and the humanities that we as humans may be conscious and aware of. The probability of our whole being’s existence is also more remarkable than the non-living matter of atoms, entropically, functionally and structurally speaking. The enormity of the integrity, of cells in themselves, their specialising into organs and their functioning, but also of an integrated and “stable” living whole, is reflected in the richness of qualities that determine our self and our necessary “countenances” – necessary for our particular reality, our self and what we experience, to be. The countenances are our “entangled other” and are projected parts of our whole. Much of it is in our subconscious and unconscious, and include our memories, dreaming, deeper feelings, instinctive and intuitive parts. Compared to us, the qualities that determine sub-atomic particles and their entangled association with an other, is elemental, such as their spin.
As a sub-atomic particle may be lost in space-time from its potential of being a part of a whole atom, we our selves as an identity, are lost in projection away from our whole, identified in our self and with what we experience. Our other, our countenances, are many for us, because we have identified and “associated” with many things on many occasions. They build up in our subconscious as we continue to identify away from our whole.
Our whole should determine our existence and our other parts for their being parts of the same whole. Be displaced from your experience, and the life that you are having, be distinct from people you meet, but as a part, of your whole who encompass your all. It’s not just all in the mind but your feelings and deepest being and sense of self, others and the world, are also there, as projected parts of the same whole.
Just as reality must be more than the sum of its aspects (the Newtonian, quantum, relativistic and of any other aspects of reality including life, and wholes) our whole is both of solid organs and projection, and is more than their sum. He or she is also of reality, and in reality.
Within the projected part of our whole being, we may be the billiard balls (Newtonian), before the reference of perspective, and manifest, in the experience, manifest like matter and gravity within the warping of space-time, but in projection. We can also be the observer in our self having the experience, with shifting points of view and references (relativity) but with a witness, which may witness the observer or experiencer (that is us) as well as what we experience.
“Actuality”, is our existence in fact as a part of our whole, projected by our whole through the brain and spinal cord (CNS or Central Nervous System). In our actuality as a part of our whole, we connect through projection beyond being the observer having an experience, and the witness is included/invited. Our parts integrate and join with our whole, through projection, in our/their actuality as projection. Being projected actuality is like being a quantum entity in and of space-time; we become a part in the very fabric of our whole being who’s (projection’s) warping throws our here and now and tangible reality that correspond to space and time, and matter.
Physics has gone beyond “the observer makes a difference” of sub-atomic particles,which are displaced or altered with the act of observing or determining them. Instead of attempting direct observations, physicists use “passive ways”, as I understand it, to monitor the quantum, and they have described the existence of sub-atomic particles in terms of probability.
An example of such “passive ways” is to filter rather than measure photons of a certain polarity, by which a relation between associated photons are demonstrated. This relatedness seems to occur instantly across space and time, faster than the speed of causality, without being predetermined and at the instant of determination (noticed by passive means).
Understanding this and its mechanism is the frontier of science, in the quantum aspect of physics. Consciousness or noticing, and causality, may have a speed that is measured in our references of space and time, but creation, or reality if in our minds we need no creator for creation, is there, in the instant, everywhere, is of space-time; reality is present in the present; our “here and now” unfolding (projected space and time) is a “warped” projected part, of our whole being of reality; reality is more than the sum of its aspects we may recognise in our projected reality (with quantum, relativistic, Newtonian aspects) and try to understand.
This perspective, over reality itself and our own projected reality of “conscious experience and self witnessed”, is afforded by “Orientation” of our reality, including our self, in space and with our whole being. We do not exist in reality, our whole self does. We are a projected part of who is both body and projection, and more than their sum. We do not exist without our whole, but we may be lost in projection isolated from our whole. We may become an integrating part, rather than isolated; our whole may be more integrated and complete with integrating parts.
Our whole is like the universe for us – our world extends and opens indefinitely in different ways in different directions, within a projected part of our whole being. Our whole is beyond our projected part (transcendent) and yet he or she infuses it (immanent). Like an electron of an electron cloud within an atom, we are an identity within a projected “cloud” of our whole. Our whole being “must be” for our self and our reality, as projected parts, to be. He or she must be a “godly being” for being of reality, and for being more than the sum of his or her parts.
We can be absolute with “Orientation” about our basis, origin and source. We have our whole as our creator and projector, and the conscious and witness are projected parts. The conscious is conscious of, and by the witness we are aware of our self and what we experience, including our deeper being and our mind’s certainty, of infinit-ism, circularity, and foundational-ism (which depend on their sequence and world view see Munchausen’s trilemma).
Finally, alogies were drawn here between the fields of physics that seem to correspond with the various aspects of our projected reality. Understanding that the whole self provides what we experience of the world (phenomenal world), from aspects of reality that he or she is sensitive to through his or her sense organs (“phenomenal aspects of reality”), lends insight into the very activity of scientists and the nature of their theories.
I propose the Newtonian, relativistic and quantum worlds exist in our actuality, as projected virtual versions of those aspects of reality. Physicists experience and try to understand them, those projected versions, and challenge their theories, of them, out on each other and in reality.
Our philosophy and science can never be reality. We must understand that aspects of reality are what we try to determine in our endeavours. Our understanding of reality may grow beyond quantum and relativistic theories, but it must include our self, as the observer and the witness, as well as the conscious, as parts and of our whole, who is of reality. We can “orientate” with and distinguish our self and the whole self, our reality and reality, and come to be a part of our whole and so, reality.
