## The basic character of science is mindfulness – seeing things as they are without assumptions.

## Science looks at inconsistencies and makes discoveries. This requires realization of what one has been assuming all along. That brings about a better understanding of what is there.

## The physical universe exists because awareness of the physical universe exists simultaneously. Awareness seems to be an integral part of the universe.

## The KHTK Model of The Universe adds the dimension of abstraction to the physical dimensions of this universe. Awareness seems to lie in this dimension of abstraction. This is a more comprehensive view of the universe.

## Science would be more complete if it looks at inconsistencies in this comprehensive view of the universe, which includes awareness as an integral component.

Up until now, space has been represented by an absence of energy and matter. It is regarded as zero (0) in quantitative terms.

Space then serves as the background for all energy and matter. It is then regarded as infinite (∞) in qualitative terms.

All spirituality, God, heaven, etc., are identified with this qualitative infinity of space.

It is time to look at the background of “all that is” more closely, because the hidden factor is TIME.

Do we really know what space is?

Our idea of point come from location of objects. Our ideas about lines, surfaces and volumes come from shapes, appearance and sizes of objects.

This is geometry. Geometry is not space. Geometry is an abstraction of locations, shapes, appearance and sizes of objects. We have no clue of what separates one object from another, or what is beyond the boundary of an electron.

We are clueless about space.

Chris: We are a long way off from that or are we? We seem to be coming very close to a face to face and tactile experience of both Gödel’s Incompleteness and Heisenberg’s Uncertainty. This is oddly rewarding to me, to feel near and kindred with these mental giants including you.

I am becoming interested in a tangential research which would be to look at some of the nonsense that some of the intellectual giants believed compared to their blindingly brilliant breakthroughs! I got this idea reading Godel’s 14 points of belief as follows for your perusal: Gödel left in his papers a fourteen-point outline of his philosophical beliefs, that are dated around 1960. They show his deep belief in the rational structure of the world. Here are his 14 points:

The world is rational. Human reason can, in principle, be developed more highly (through certain techniques). There are systematic methods for the solution of all problems (also art, etc.). There are other worlds and rational beings of a different and higher kind. The world in which we live is not the only one in which we shall live or have lived. There is incomparably more knowable a priori than is currently known. The development of human thought since the Renaissance is thoroughly intelligible (durchaus einsichtige). Reason in mankind will be developed in every direction. Formal rights comprise a real science. Materialism is false. The higher beings are connected to the others by analogy, not by composition. Concepts have an objective existence. There is a scientific (exact) philosophy and theology, which deals with concepts of the highest abstractness; and this is also most highly fruitful for science. Religions are, for the most part, bad– but religion is not.

It is quite overwhelming to jump into all the knowledge out there. All I am doing is investigating the fundamental premises of the various subjects. Anybody can do that.

The scope of my investigation is to find the interface between physics and metaphysics. What is most helpful to me is Internet and Wikipedia. Without this resource I am totally helpless.

Glad to see you being so optimistic. And your tangential research really sounds very interesting. The brilliance that we find out there, seems to be so different and separate from normal human endeavors. I would very much like to know the philosophy that is associated with these brilliant minds.

The more I practice mindfulness the more fascinating and wonderful I find it to be. Intelligence seems to be a by-product of mindfulness.

Motion is felt only when relative to something else. When there is nothing to compare to, the idea of motion is not there, but an idea of persistence is there.

Uniform motion (sense of relativity) = Duration (sense of persistence)Zero motion does not exist. Either there is motion, or there is nothing. Similarly, either there is duration, or there is nothing. Same with existence, either something is, or it isn’t.

Existence = uniform motion = duration.Distance covered = time endured.

A complete model will describe not only the system but also changes in that system as it evolves. This is the spacetime model. This is best represented, in mathematics, by a differential equation.

Repetition is the key to continuation and to evolution. It is the repetition of successful actions that ensures continuation. Repetition occurs in a wave. Repetition occurs in a fractal. Repetition occurs in nature.

Mathematical space is not the physical space. Mathematical space is more of a product of the mind. We may play with mathematical space, any way we want. It has its own consistency. But it is a filter through which we are looking.

Even when we know nothing about mathematics, we are imposing a sort of mathematical space on what is out there. Shapes of things are produced in our mind because of this mathematical space filter.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_equation

There are very few methods of solving nonlinear differential equations exactly; those that are known typically depend on the equation having particular symmetries. Nonlinear differential equations can exhibit very complicated behavior over extended time intervals, characteristic of chaos. Even the fundamental questions of existence, uniqueness, and extendability of solutions for nonlinear differential equations, and well-posedness of initial and boundary value problems for nonlinear PDEs are hard problems and their resolution in special cases is considered to be a significant advance in the mathematical theory (cf. Navier–Stokes existence and smoothness). However, if the differential equation is a correctly formulated representation of a meaningful physical process, then one expects it to have a solution.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_equation

Many fundamental laws of physics and chemistry can be formulated as differential equations. In biology and economics, differential equations are used to model the behavior of complex systems. The mathematical theory of differential equations first developed together with the sciences where the equations had originated and where the results found application. However, diverse problems, sometimes originating in quite distinct scientific fields, may give rise to identical differential equations. Whenever this happens, mathematical theory behind the equations can be viewed as a unifying principle behind diverse phenomena. As an example, consider propagation of light and sound in the atmosphere, and of waves on the surface of a pond. All of them may be described by the same second-order partial differential equation, the wave equation, which allows us to think of light and sound as forms of waves, much like familiar waves in the water. Conduction of heat, the theory of which was developed by Joseph Fourier, is governed by another second-order partial differential equation, the heat equation. It turns out that many diffusion processes, while seemingly different, are described by the same equation; the Black–Scholes equation in finance is, for instance, related to the heat equation.

An oscillation transfers energy back and forth between two states. A wave is a travelling oscillation that is capable of transferring energy (capacity to do work). In an oscillation, deformation takes place, which then reverses itself owing to restoring forces resulting from its deformation.

Do electrical and magnetic fields represent some kind of deformation? What cause variations in the wavelength of electromagnetic radiations?.
