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, and they seem to “jump” and “associate” right through them. I think the things that “move” 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) exist 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 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 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 and with separate whole others that one may play with, hunt with, perform with etc. This association is stifled and blocked by the rigidity of our 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 being or in association with others.
In projection, we may exist within the determining references of our projected sense of space-and-time, but we may also exist in our actuality as projection 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-and-place and identity, seem transcended.
Parts of our projected reality include our sense of matter and the world, but also the frames of reference that determine what we experience. We may as self or identity in our reality, observe the laws of Newtonian physics (of billiard balls and planets) in those things we experience. It is a part of our projected reality consistent with space-and-time, a functional indication of such a world with our sense of being in it and its time, that is our here and now.
We are normally dominated by this indication of the world, changing apparently through our sense of time with the observer, us, as the experience-er, before the witness. In our actuality as projection we occupy the “causal” fabric and substance of projection, as if of space-time itself, which in turn may be considered the very fabric of the cosmos and of which space-and-time is understood to be a warping of space-time. The witness is the constant, as if set at the speed of causality = C throughout the shifting frames of reference.
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. 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 functions but also of an integrated and “stable” living whole being, 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 being, normally in our subconscious and unconscious, and include our memories, dreaming, deeper feelings, instinctive and intuitive parts. Compared to these 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. 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 the Newtonian, quantum, relativistic and of any other aspects of reality, 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, 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.
In our actuality, we connect through projection beyond being the observer having an experience, and the witness is included/invited. Our parts join with our whole as parts, 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 goes beyond “the observer makes a difference” for sub-atomic particles that are displaced or altered with the act of observing them. Instead of attempting direct observations, laboratory apparatus use “passive ways”, as I understand, to monitor the quantum, such as to filter 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 (by passive means).
Understanding this and its mechanism is the frontier of science. Consciousness 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 (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 becomes 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. Before them is our mind’s certainty, of infinit-ism, circularity, and foundational-ism (see Munchausen’s trilemma), which is dependent on their sequence, world views and contexts, and causality.
As a part of our whole, we may be in association with our fellow parts, including our estranged entanglements or countenances. Free and independent as a part of, rather than in isolation from our whole. Set by our others and our not-s, displaced and distant, alienated or estranged, or not, but associated with them, through our whole as projected parts of our maker; we, in reality as parts, of our individual whole.
Finally, analogies 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, 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 physicists 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 test their theories, of them, out on each other and in reality.
While reality is more than the sum of those aspects of reality grasped by the various fields of physics, the whole self projects those aspects in accurate enough ways that the theories and formulas formed of them, do work in reality when they are tested in experiments and applied in products and inventions.
I know others have made the association between our reality and the quantum out-look, but I mean to point out our actuality, the “shapes” and places they occupy and our being in relation, as a part, with our whole. I refer to Chalmers (1986) who makes a useful distinction between the easy and hard “problem of the conscious” where the objective aspects of our conscious experience is “easily” understood as a product of the brain, but not the subjective – the experience itself (rather than what we experience), the self, conscious, and I like to add the witness. He examines many approaches to the basis of our reality and distinguishes the objective and subjective aspects of our reality and proposes our subjective aspects to be fundamental ie irreducible.
Through out my work you will see the whole self presented as who projects, through the Central Nervous System, our reality both subjective and objective, internal and outside. There is no brain without a whole being, except in our minds.
Our philosophy and science can never be reality. I believe our understanding of reality can grow beyond quantum and relativistic theories, perhaps a formula established that binds both the quantum and relativistic, but only with our inclusion as the observer and the witness, as well as the conscious, as parts and in relation with 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 the relation between our reality and reality, in our being a part of our whole who is of reality.
