KHTK Postulate M-6: Physics is the study of form. Metaphysics is the study of the underlying essence, or spirit.

Awareness consists of perception/knowledge interchange. It is conscious of itself as light.

The domain of Physics consists of the forms of perception starting with light. The ultimate in form is the body that serves as the vehicle for perception.

The domain of Metaphysics consists of the essence of knowledge starting with consciousness. The ultimate in essence (spirit) is the self that serves as the vehicle for knowledge.

.

KHTK Postulate M-7: Increase in disturbance levels make finite forms emerge out of primordial light.

Awareness comes about because of the desire to know. As this desire gets stronger the disturbance levels increase, and the perception/knowledge conversions occur at a greater frequency. The wave-length shrinks and becomes finite and periodic. Thus forms come about that have boundaries. There appears a sense of finite against an indescribable background.

As forms emerge from the primordial light, awareness acquires the distinction of who, what, where and when. This awareness is distributed among these forms. Thus, comes about knowledge of forms as beliefs.

All these forms and beliefs emerge from primordial light, so they are all connected and cross indexed in a consistent and coherent manner within the same consciousness.

.

KHTK Postulate M-8Dimensions then emerge to describe the finite characteristics of these forms.

Space and Time are the primary dimensions that emerge with the finite forms. They provide the characteristics of extension and duration, against a background that has neither of these characteristics. More complex characteristics, such as, density and temperature, come about as disturbance levels increase.

It is to be understood that the primordial background is indescribable. It has neither extension nor duration because there is neither space nor time at that level. It would be an error to visualize primordial light as having infinite extension.

Furthermore, the disturbance levels may be identified as a dimension that is basic to even space and time. We may describe it as the dimension of abstraction that becomes increasingly concrete with growing disturbance.

.

KHTK Postulate M-9: Basic level of knowledge consists of the direct perception of forms.

As disturbance levels increase, the primary forms interact with each other to generate more complex forms. Thus come about an infinite variety and diversity of forms. The forms of houses, trees, roads, business, people, etc., come together through extension in space to generate a complex city. Similarly, the forms of musical notes may come together through sequencing in time to generate a beautiful melody.

Essentially, knowledge is anything that is perceived. Direct perception provides the basic level of knowledge. More complex levels are generated through association among what is perceived, and projection from what is known.

.

KHTK Postulate M-10: As knowledge is associated and projected, direct perception condenses into experience, information, hypothesis, theory, principles, and axioms.

As knowledge is generated with increasing disturbance levels, it is cross-indexed through association and projection. Common elements are perceived and recognized as such. Thus organization and simplification of perception comes about in the form of experience, information, hypothesis, theory, principles, and axioms. Consistency and coherency is the key to the organization and simplification of overall knowledge.

There is overall self-awareness, but the individual forms are also self-aware. The self-awareness of individual forms add up to the self-awareness of more complex forms.

    KHTK Postulate M-6: Physics is the study of “form.” Metaphysics is the study of the underlying “essence.”

    Physics is the study of the electromagnetic field, the patterns in which provides the forms in nature. Metaphysics is the study of awareness, the dynamics of which provide the essence underlying nature.

      This postulate is expanded as follows:

      KHTK Postulate M-6: Physics is the study of “form.” Metaphysics is the study of the underlying “essence.”

      Reality seems to start with the disturbance of some ground state. The physical aspect of this disturbance appears as light that leads to perception. The metaphysical aspect of this disturbance appears as awareness that leads to knowledge. Both of these aspects seem to coexist as a single phenomenon of disturbance.

      When looking at the interface between physics and metaphysics, we find that light is the form, whose essence is awareness. A bit down the line we find that perception is the form, whose essence is knowledge. At the end of the line, body appears as the form, whose essence is the self. Interestingly enough, body seems to serve as a mechanism for perception, whereas self seems to serve as a system for knowledge.

    KHTK Postulate M-7: Fundamentally, the formless essence desires to perceive itself.

    Form comes about because the formless essence desires to perceive itself. We may say that a thought is there simply because it wants to perceive itself.

    .

    KHTK Postulate M-8: The desire ‘to perceive’ brings about forms and a sense of finite and infinite.

    Forms, by their very nature, are defined by boundaries. This brings about a sense of finite, and by projection, a sense of an infinite background. Thus, with the creation of forms, the dichotomy of finite-infinite is born.

    .

    KHTK Postulate M-9: The desire ‘to perceive forms’ brings about the consideration of dimensions and dimensionless space.

    Forms have extension. To perceive the forms there must be the consideration of dimensions, and by projection, a dimesionless background of space. Thus, with the creation of forms, the considerations of dimensions and dimensionless space are born.

    This dimensionless space comes closest to the idea of near infinite wavelength at DL0.

    .

    KHTK Postulate M-10: The desire ‘for the forms to be’ brings about the consideration of period and timelessness.

    A form comes into existence, it continues to be, and then it ceases to be when replaced by another form. This brings about a sense of period, and by projection, a background of a state of timelessness. Thus, with the creation of forms, the considerations of ‘period of time’ and ‘state of timelessness’ are born.

    This state of timelessness comes closest to the idea of near infinite period at DL0.

      These postulates are revised as follows:

      KHTK Postulate M-7: Increase in disturbance levels make finite forms emerge out of the infinite light.

      Forms come about because the infinite light desires to perceive itself in detail. This brings about increase in disturbance levels.  As disturbance levels increase, the wave-length shrinks to become finite and periodic. This gives birth to forms.

      Forms are defined by boundaries that give them finite appearance. Thus comes about a sense of finite against an infinite background. Thus there is perception and knowledge of forms.

      As forms emerge from ‘awareness-light’,  they are aware of themselves. For example, a thought is aware of itself as a thought.

      .

      KHTK Postulate M-8: The finite characteristics of forms are defined by dimensions.

      The primary characteristics of forms are their extension and duration. These are defined by the dimensions of space-time against a background that is infinite and timeless. Other characteristics and their defining dimensions, such as, density and temperature, come about as disturbance levels increase.

      Thus, there is perception and knowledge of the dimensions of space and time and other dimensions that are mostly derived from them.

      .

      KHTK Postulate M-9: Basic level of knowledge comes about with the direct perception of forms.

      As disturbance levels increase, the frequency of perception-knowledge interchanges becomes much greater, and there come about an infinite variety and diversity of forms. The direct perception of these forms provides the most detailed level of knowledge.

      .

      KHTK Postulate M-10: With continuous perception of forms, knowledge is cross-indexed as experience, information, hypothesis, theory, principles, and axioms.

      As knowledge is continually added as perception of forms, efficient organization comes about with cross-indexing as experience, information, hypothesis, theory, principles, and axioms.

      This cross-indexing of forms and their organization into the various layers, as described above, is consistent and coherent, as it emerges out of the background of finite light.

      The forms are aware of themselves. They are also aware of their cross-indexing and organization with other forms. The awareness vectors of smaller forms add up to bring about the awareness of larger forms.

      .

        Please note that these postulates are continually being modified as more connections are being made.

  • vinaire  On June 28, 2014 at 7:23 AM

    Understanding comes about when the perception of random forms is made into a consistent and coherent flow. This may be compared to a dynamic electromagnetic flow. The patterns of this flow are carriers of bits of knowledge or “knowdules”.

    …and near infinite duration or no duration of time? Time as a result of motion= no time?

    “As the spider weaves its thread out of its own mouth, plays with it and then withdraws it again into itself, so the eternal unchangeable Lord, who is without form, without attributes, who is absolute knowledge and absolute bliss, evolves the whole universe out of Himself, plays with it for a while, and again withdraws it into Himself.”

    A “Self” is a set of experience, information, hypothesis, theory, principles, and axioms.

  • vinaire  On June 29, 2014 at 10:46 AM

    A “belief” is a datum of knowledge that is found useful in solving some problem.

    It is interesting to examine the emergence of knowledge as forms and the identification with it. Here are some thoughts regarding it.

    Self-awareness is made up of perception and giving meaning to that perception. The meaning we give to the perception becomes our knowledge. We then use this knowledge to define subsequent perceptions.

    Thus, there is this interchange between perception and knowledge. This interchange defines increasing self-awareness. The most fundamental level of this self-awareness is infinite light.

    Forms emerge out of infinite light as the frequency of perception-knowledge interchange increases. The emerging forms have self-awareness. Their awareness vectors add up to the over-all self-awareness of the infinite light.

    Individuation (or identification) seems to occur as this self-awareness gets too focused on one form or the other.

    • vinaire  On July 1, 2014 at 2:28 PM

      A live body is aware as a whole. It has the a belief-system that interprets reality in a consistent and coherent fashion in a way to fulfill its desires. This belief system acts as the self and dynamically projects life’s actions. The whole body and self as a single, alive organism.

      At death this self-awareness as a single organism breaks down. An individuation of body parts occurs in terms of being self aware independently without coordination with other parts. However, this doesn’t last very long. Individuation of smaller and smaller units continues to occur, until it reduces to the level of atoms and molecules.

      There is no soul leaving the body. There is only a disintegration of self-awareness into its raw elements.

    It is the desire to know oneself which disturbs the ground state into awareness.

    The disturbance is manifested as an imbalance between the states of perceiving and knowing. It is as if knowledge is initiating perception and then perception is recognizing knowledge in an effort to find oneself. But when there is knowledge, the perception is missing, and when there is perception the knowledge is missing. It keeps disturbance going much like a pendulum swinging back and forth due to gravity.

    This disturbance appears as awareness that becomes conscious of itself as light. It is kept going by the force of the underlying desire to know. As this desire gets stronger the “pendulum” starts to swing faster. This brings about the disturbance levels.

    • Chris Thompson  On July 5, 2014 at 7:19 PM

      Possibly the process of birth to death can be seen to follow such a process. Inception to reverberation swelling to maturity and then diminishing back to no disturbance. Like a coronal mass ejection, or squeal of the loudspeaker during a Jimi Hendrix riff. Things come and they go, lots of things.

  • vinaire  On July 4, 2014 at 4:27 PM

    Increase in disturbance starts to generate forms in awareness.

    As an analogy let’s first look at an electromagnetic wave in space. At zero frequency, there is no wave. The wave may then appear as having an almost infinite wave-length of timeless duration at extremely low frequencies. As harmonics of higher frequencies come about the wave-lengths begin to shrink and start to become periodic.

    Similarly, in our scenario, there is no awareness in the ground state. As the ground state is disturbed awareness starts with an infinite extent of timeless duration. With increasing disturbance, forms start to appear that have finite extents and duration. This then provides a sense of finite forms moving against an infinite and timeless background.

    The disturbance increases as the desire to know gets stronger. This seems to be rewarded by the appearance of forms. And so the desire then continues to reinforce itself.
