Context: Why is quantum theory so strange? The weirdness could be in our heads The disconnect between experience and the counter-intuitive products of (a) material logic is endemic to cognition and it is, in essence, an irreducible discontinuity. It may change form as theory and popular narratives of science co-evolve but the foundational peculiarity and […]
Context: Observing The Universe Really Does Change The Outcome, And This Experiment Shows How There are aligned problems in logic here. If the description of a system (pick a card, any card: mathematics, material reality [a.k.a. physics], sentience, digital transformation, cybersecurity, culture, science, politics, language, etc.) is also a component element of that system, the […]
Context: Why We’re Blind to Probability Probability seems to live in that space of “just can’t quite wrap my head around” that holistic analysis and paradox also live – in regards to natural cognitive function and any prospective innate ability to understand or intuit meaning. Ironically – even the language(s) and logical syntax with which […]
A fascinating feature of contemporary organisational systems, and at all scales of magnitude, is the various ways in which they subscribe to a simplistic mechanical and linear model of ontology and operation. It is as though, while everyone and everywhere is more than happy to commercially and politically exploit the Post-Newtonian and Post-Industrial Revolution technologies […]
Is consciousness an emergent phenomena from the mysteriously unintelligible sub-microscopic world of quantum mechanics ? Yes, and no.
Can the Universe be said to be computational ? Algorithmic ? Can distantly-connected parts of a unified physical totality really manifest computation as we currently understand it ?
If the past was as open to possibility as the future, the present could still be exactly what it is…
The Anthropic Principle: To assert that the Universe must necessarily have been perfectly-tuned for the eventual emergence of your self is the Ultimate Tautology.
The revelations of quantum theory and relativistic cosmology would once have appeared to be outright lunacy…
