Note: This was originally written in September 2009, shortly after the beginning of my first year of my PhD. I was sitting in a class session for a course titled, based mostly on tradition, “Biosynthesis of Macromolecules”, which in reality would be more accurately called “Advanced Molecular Biology”. It’s remarkable at all that I was actually in class. Yeah, I’m one of those. This writing may be interesting because it was one of the first times I tried to put my insights about reality into words. Apologies for any aspects that may seem esoteric. This writing is meant to be understood however you understand it. Keep that in mind, and have fun.
While being in Biosynthesis of Macromolecules, insights are abound, abound are insights, and all scientific reality begins to demonstrate itself to be lesser than it itself claims.
Eyes closed, and listening silently while focusing on a breath, the science becomes clear; not the content of the science, but, again, the science itself.
The order of the macrocosmos appears ostensibly to approach higher complexity somewhat counterintuitively given that observation of energy states dictates what should be decay rather than growth. Mass and energy are equivalent simply because mass and energy as entities do not exist. (Oh great, another daoist rant, but really maybe no yes?) By exist, it is meant that there is no individual mass, and there is no individual energy, and quantized states are based solely upon a sentient being’s attempt at experiencing the un-experienceable. Unexperience is a foundation of the modern age, and it is only appropriate that awareness seems to be increasing as the construct begins to collapse in on itself with, very paradoxically, the construct itself being the vector for its own collapse. Project consciousness in; project consciousness out.
(The term universe is meaningless, and all further mention of existence will be referred to as the multiverse. The universe implies a single entity. There is no independent existence, but instead a continuous plastic polymer better referred to as the multiverse: a conglomeration of all membranes of the universal projection.)
There exists no independent observer, but only one observer. The multiverse is its own observer. The multiverse itself exists because a multitude of perturbations from observation led to certain wavefunction collapses which preferred matter over anti-matter (or otherwise, as within the multiversal chain there are surely portions made up entirely of anti-matter or other forms of ‘exotic matter,’ any arbitrary designation will do), but again it is important to note all of this discussion is completely and entirely stuck on form. The multiverse itself is an illusion propagated by the multiverse observer, the universal vibration, the Aum, God, Brahman, Zoroaster, the Dao, ad nauseam. Form is abound because perturbation of the projected sentient beings that projected out: form! form! form! If form is projected out, then again, form is projected in and more form is abound until the multiverse is simply saturated with the illusion of form.
Form emerges and gains complexity (as opposed to the decay mentioned earlier) as a result of evolution. Evolution is the stream of perturbation resulting from the multiverse observing itself. The universal vibration oscillates on a wave (at a frequency) constructive to that of evolution, and evolution oscillates on a wave (at a frequency) constructive to that of the universal vibration. (Listen to cicadas if you want to hear them). Understand that there is not a really good word for what is meant by frequency. Frequency refers to the constant perturbation resulting from the multiverse observing itself.
At any moment the vibration is constant, and unchanging, and it is not easy to understand something being both dynamic and static simultaneously (particle-wave duality hits the spot), and this is exactly the nature of it. To again sample Daoism: the duality is an illusion. Dynamic is constantly chasing static and static constantly chasing dynamic to bring about one single constant steady state, but it is not that the constant state is formed from the combination of dynamic and constant but instead that dynamic and constant are projected in and projected out due to the multiverse’s observation of itself.
Form and complexity emerge, driven by evolution which is on a wave (at a frequency) constructive to the universal vibration, but there are no individual time points. There is only a single moment that appears to change analogous to how the frequency represents a wavefunction, moving up and down ostensibly changing, but there is not really change, and there is no other moment. Complexity is abound because sentience projects complexity out, and therefore complexity is projected back in. Project consciousness in, project consciousness out, project consciousness in, project consciousness out.
