Matrix

I find (as a general mental exercise) the explanatory concepts of consciousness deriving from manifold superimposed multidimensional matrices to be compelling.
There is something powerful in the consideration that the mental systems and conceptual vocabularies which support (or manifest as) consciousness might themselves be able in their potentially unbounded internal extensibility to transcend the relative limitations of the physical systems (exquisitely complex and sophisticated as they are) that also support them. Incompleteness, recursion, infinite internal extensibility – the logical impossibility is only a matter of perspective or contextual abstraction. Within a Euclidean spatial system, no two parallel lines will ever meet but in a curved non-Euclidean space such an axiom can be demonstrated false, inconsistent, or at least of limited applicability. The point is – assumptions about the essential characteristics or axioms of any system of explanation, of thought – these are specific (delimited) to that system of explanation and we should not be so very surprised when we discover that there are always potential further abstractions and vectors of growth or dimensional extensibility to any system of rules, axioms, thought or philosophy.
