You were born with a brain that makes you feel like you need to defend your ideas, even when you know you are wrong.
I think consciousness itself is something like “riding a wave”.
You are a Computationally Bounded Observer, with a Vector, a Speed, a Point of View, and, a structure that enables all of this to “surf” from the past into the future, along A Given Trajectory through the great Mishmash. The History of Your World is comprised of your memories: formed of the physical connections caused […]
Daily Writing Prompt ☞ Do you believe in God?
I am unsure if “G_d” is a thing that is aware of itself, but, my behaviour attempts to account for it being true.
Prediction: the human brains shape is fractal
Since a 3-D object can only contain as much information as can be encoded on its surface, then, I predict that the brain is fractal, when you get down to the surface area.
Bookmark ☞ How Your Brain Is Like the Cosmic Web
It is truly a remarkable fact that the cosmic web is more similar to the human brain than it is to the interior of a galaxy; or that the neuronal network is more similar to the cosmic web than it is to the interior of a neuronal body. Despite extraordinary differences in substrate, physical mechanisms, […]

One day, translating will feel like rotation
There are some 6,800 unique languages in use today. Not every word translates perfectly, and meaning sometimes falls through the cracks. For instance, there is no English translation for the Japanese wabi-sabi—the idea of finding beauty in imperfection—or for the German waldeinsamkeit, the feeling of being alone in the woods. Different fields of science, too, […]
Turns out, nature does, in fact, organize itself
Why the Flow of Time Is an Illusion, in Nautilus
In his book Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality, Max Tegmark writes that “time is not an illusion” We’ve seen a lot of examples of how things feel very different from the way they look in the equations. I would argue that almost all of the big breakthroughs in physics […]
On the idea that consciousness creates 4D reality from a 2D hologram
I’m blocked on all my current tasks at work so I went to MacNiven’s to take a break, and, like I do, I’m reading a physics book. This one is about the various “Universe as Holographic Information” hypotheses. Short version The deepest reality of our universe is two-dimensional hologram, one of Space and one of […]
A Brief History of All The Shit We See Around Us™
A bunch of shit showed up in the same place. Shit can not occupy the same place. Shit started moving to take, and make, room. Shit got complicated. Shit divided up into groups, keeping other shit from occupying claimed territory. Shit got real complicated and matter(s) heated up, so shit made a bunch more room, […]
god has a sense of timing
position: all dimensions, be they measurable, immeasurable or simply theoretical, are part of the created universe — and therefore necessarily dependent upon a creator. this means god cannot dwell “in” them — as he dwelled before they existed. even in dimensions that have no apparent meaning of “time”, there is still the fact that if […]
