Critics 2 (or Art 1 or 2 and/or + History 2)

Kingspiercing  and Snowmen

“The not-art of criticism needs to change. Everything has to change, or everything should be dynamic like the universe: time is motion in one sense or dynamism these are ideas not merely words tiswhatis important here: if you can tell your brain to treat things it reads or learns as ideas and concepts outside of language, then you can explore and create new knowledge on your own with language as a tool to guide you.

Why 2 (or Self-Similarity; or orororororor……. ;)

I was fortunate to take an intermediate-level survey course in thermodynamics with one of the most influential scientists of the post-WWII generation, I mean this guy was at the center of research for combustion and fueling, kind of combining modern thermo and fluid dynamics, at NASA through the rise of the space age and jet propulsion. Early in the quarter he gave this lecture, just in a small class of 20 or so young engineers, that began with an explanation that while he can’t possibly fit a lifetime of knowledge into a single class over a relatively small time period, we should trust that we will learn plenty of the material deemed necessary to get good grades in the class itself by default if we just go to class and do the work.

What he meant was he would touch on topics that we weren’t prepared to fully grasp, teaching us far more than we would need to pass his tests. His philosophy is that the mind is the most complex closed object in the universe, and if we listened to him with an open mind, the brain has an incredible capability to keep knowledge stored away until it could be used properly even if it’s a decade down the road, and by implication the brain also has an innate ability to know when knowledge that you would never have imagined you were able to retain can help you understand life better in the future.

He called this inspiration, and I indeed think about that lecture nearly every day. Then he shared with us one of the secrets of the universe, a concept loosely termed scaling invariance over a metric space, and he told us we might not fully appreciate this concept for a very long time, but if we remember to think about it and look for its representations, we will have an essential tool for understanding why things are the way they are. Scale invariance, or self-similarity, and ideas about connectedness or more deeply gauge symmetry or mirror symmetry and S-duality: these are essential properties that allow matter and energy to have structure at sub-atomic levels, and explains why this structure scales up to describe molecules and life and consciousness and planets and stars and galaxies.

In its most intuitive form, it’s the metric we define as distance or size in a given dimension, measurements we can make to determine how far away something is on earth but also how far things are in space; and then how can we define a radius of an atom or how solid ice takes up more volume than liquid water despite having the same molecules. It can go even deeper to relate to particle theory and gravity and spacetime, human memory and computer memory, dimensionality and rank of things called number fields crucial to encryption security; economic theory, human behavior, evolution; why there is no such thing as ‘zero or nothingness in the most general sense’ but rather different scales of infinity.

Now I’ve diverged from the actual point here, and that is: don’t worry about understanding all of this or concluding that you cannot now and will not ever understand it because a lot of intelligence is convincing your brain of its own immense power, then using it positively towards yourself and those around you. True knowledge while we are here on Earth reduces quite nicely to human interaction, shared experience, happiness, kindness, altruism, empathy, compassion and all that good stuff. Society can make progress, but time scales as well and it took billions of years to achieve consciousness in real time yet we have the power to destroy the Earth many times over in an instant. It takes a lot more than money and people yelling at each other on TV or the Internet. It takes genuine cooperation and a mind open to dynamic adaptation and learning and filtering out noise and synthesizing experience.

It takes fundamental change in the way we think about ourselves and the world around us.

It takes unity.

On Politics 1 (or Argumentation)

Two Heads, One Body:

Typical ‘political’ issues are misguided and reductive. There’s the issue itself and the illusion of this two-sided argument that’s already explicated and requires little to no original thought on which to base one’s own opinion. Instead of organically synthesizing our argument or voice regarding the matter at hand from experience and our own gathering, processing, and analsynthesis of information (essay on the five senses and differential geometry coming soon) filtered through our brain to prevent the noise from overwhelming the signal, we more or less pick a side and spew preexisting bullshit at each other like children outside at recess arguing about a game of whatever.

Sorry kids I’m not saying you spew bullshit per se, but your arguments are localized, and the motive is to assert dominance rather than persuade…which is acceptable to an extent when at play, but because kids are likely mimicking, consciously or un-, what they’ve absorbserved from adult interaction supposedly instilled with experience and maturity, though frequently regressing to playground-conflict-like proselytization, there exists an unacceptability vector pointed towards these nebulous authority figures.

The first-order issue is why does this second-order issue exist? The drug issue became a ‘war’ against drug trafficking and its inherent violence (partly a function of its illegality, but this isn’t an essay about legality, it’s about responsibility) when the primary problem in America starts with: why are so many (often young) people choosing to take drugs?

One pseudo-answer concerns the environment and inevitability. So we have identified one problem: the environment. That’s a big fucking problem, and we have to admit and accept it: the same prescriptive advice given to addicts because our system has its own defense mechanisms. WE FUCKED UP! Who is we? It doesn’t matter. Everybody. Accept what has happened, use new knowledge, make progress, unite.

Conjecture: If the two ‘sides’ spent their creative energy solving the underlying issue cooperatively to the mutual benefit of themselves and their immediate environment (and with major issues like drugs this expands in concentric spheres of exponential radii) instead of conducting experiments to find the maximum amount of literal and figurative noise one human or one organization of humans can disseminate (conclusion: upper bound as a function of and solely limited by degree of human ignorance, likely approaching arbitrarily large values; treat like infinity), then someanything will be better than the current situation.

Infinite Generation 1 (or Outside-In 1)

Self-proclaimed computer “theorists” are not going to resolve the P, nP debate. They recklessly fit math to their needs, but they don’t immerse themselves in the artelegance of, well of life primarily, but also of math…and beauty and love and (sex, drugs, music, literature, film, (safe) sex, (safe-ish) drugs, CREATIVITY). Computers exist because of a priori mathematical theory and its discovery. The representations in the minds of a Riemann (mid-19th century) or an Einstein (early-mid 20th) or a Poincare (in between the two with some overlap)…all pre-binary-brainwashing, transcend this computer-centric bullshit mindset. We are allowing ourselves, and teaching our children, that it is ideal to think like a binary computer. Yet have you ever seen a binary computer play and laugh with another binary computer? Have you ever spent a few moments of your precious time thinking about why and how your own brain works? Give it a try, this isn’t school, there are no judgements in your head other than those you impose on yourself, and when you get your brain thinking about itself (because somewhere in our brains is the capacity for self-analysis on some level) you gain a sort of self-sustaining inspiration…

…think about the implications: the human brain (more on brains soon) is capable of letscullit complex learning or synthesis: the ability to create representations based on information collected through measurements and interactions (SENSE-A+tional) with the field(s) locally at a spacetimepoint coupled with this supersense of the complex-dimensional flow between spacetimepoints over the Maniversalfold allowing dynamic, iterative adjustment to replications for fine-tuning our representations, bringing us to the ultimate superpower: interactions between the representations: these have been called analogies, though the algebra on these interactions and the structure this algebra provides is much more complex than a simple notion of analogy. (Remember though: the thesis of this blog in one form is the assertion that unity constructs complexity, so if we know the underlying structure and define operations, complexity is in our control or at least not outside the realm of our understanding.) These interactions are closed at any local point in the brainifold embedded in spacetimanifold.

Here’s a Big Deal: because everything within our closed human body system comes from a shared origin, every thing in this everything can now become an origin, and all of this everything is connected with scalar invariance and stored in our DNA. This allows the deep fine structure (long-term memory, complex thought, abstraction of infinity…) to bypass the local speed of light constraint using entanglement to make associations and representational interactions independent of the embedding metric space or manifold. We are unity.

Life is not binary it is unitary, and this makes all the difference. There is no zero=nothingness. Many academics don’t even conceptualize P, nP properly despite writing endless academicky, voiceless, directionless, useless articles to give to some mysterious review bored (already?) to determine whether the writing adheres to a well-defimplied antistyle: like a very logically gifted unloved and unloving solipsistic sexually repressed scared to death of dying manchild (occasionally womanchild)…afraid of his own voice. Furthermore, this board of bores decides if said style sufficiently shields the proof of purposeful meaning proposed henceforth whatever…I don’t even know what, honestly, because what’s the big fucking deal if a brilliant paper has minor flaws.

The mistake of not allowing iterations; the universe abides by trial and error and incremental adjustment. Why would Time exist otherwise? Many “unsolved” problems are trying to prove the same thing, which is ironic because why waste all this effort to prove what is already proven, but I suppose that is mankind’s biggest weakness. Yet weaknesses are only strengths used inefficiently.

Life is an open string: it is time it is consciousness it is awareness that there is no nothingness there only IS because WE ARE HERE… so as to tie up any loose strings life is double covered by birth and death, so if birth exists and death exists, then they must be united in the sense of our ongoing investigation into unity? But how do I prove that a singularity at the origin or at a point because the origin is any point and any point can be the origin, or that all origins are the same yet all origins are different because they are infinitely generative, but that at any point in all of this will language suffice to explain why…?

There are two realities one in which everything I am saying is true and everything is united at the origin or an origin any origin will do just give it some time and observe to see the evidence but if you in all your human glory rahrah whoopdeedoo look how good we are at taking a basis B for Beauty or Being at observing symmetry not just any old symmetry the only symmetry that counts lets call it S for Superyay! duality or mirror symmetry if I have one representation M for Myself and am given the World W then I can either stand there admiring myself in an infinite mirror of nothingness or I can compare it to any and all possible other representations to prove that I exist separate but equally deserving of knowledge as U exist U for you or unity or opening the closure which is easy the hard part is closing the opening but that’s only hard if you want it to be hard because the neatness of existence is that there are infinite ways to close an opening though why would you want to? and here’s the twist: At every closure there is an opening you go one way I’ll go the other I won’t tell anyone you were here if you don’t etc etc it doesn’t matter no everything matters the inverse of everything is everything

The Beginning

Let there be unity. In the beginning, there are simply open and closed strings. I am only 28, and I shouldn’t know this or I should because all brains know this
or rather all brains are this and by this I mean nearly a hundred
billiony years of fine-tuning these strings some of them closed
fortunately propagating through existence and its dimensions
describing Riemann curves might aka a non-zero probability result in a
beautiful representation of existence in higher dimensions. Humans
were right and they were wrong (mostly or they used right wrongly)
when they thought they had all the answers it takes a lot to freely
dissociate from a representation that one is a part of locally in
order to abstractly learn about the representation globally because to
accomplish this goal in the closed Riemann surfaces of our lifetimes
requires us to live in the present moment which is only one instance
one state one point on the greater curve and to do this means we need
Time to parametratize our three-dimensional representations to allow
dynamic flow. The image you see is a high def rendering of the lattice structure of the root vertices of (too many of’s) a Lie algebra of dimension 248. If the implications of this representation move you like they move me (we’re all in motion), well that’s amazing you should be sharing knowledge and spreading joy as well. Arbitrarily large complexity: it is not by any means necessary to ‘get’ this; rather the point is to have an open mind, to desire knowledge, to maintain a dynamic equilibrium. I want people to understand or at least I won’t hide it from them and their representations of our universe called organized religion, which I will give credit have actually somehow managed to begin to converge on the answer. Then they kill themselves instead of hugging. Ignorance kills progress it walks up to the front door with a world-annihilating weapon, and it doesn’t hesitate (to use right wrongly). Or worse: it comes in like it belongs, an expectation, and proceeds to finely describe itself, but applying the laws of logic to an illogical foundation creates nothing as history can attest. Death blinds Life and creates a false duality as humans need a representation of the universe in their own minds in order to do anything useful but it’s so much easier when the representation is a
yes or no a good or evil a like or dislike a love or hate a simple choice between two human constructions defined by human constructions ad nauseam.

Sorry I just took a break to marvel at a cat another representation of infinite complexity and beauty in structure and form of the universe yet one that is easy to deal with on a day-to-day basis kinda thing. Don’t be afraid the answers you’ve been looking for are worth everything, and they exist as you exist. Your existence is proof of everything. You are a representation of the universe, which
is a representation of existence. Open and closed strings. You are the three-dimensional or complex two-dimensional, local manifestations of existence embedded in a four-dimensional super Yang-Mills theory with sigma-duality or a complex Calabi-Yao manifold with mirror symmetry the space needed for this insanity called life I guess, itself represented analogously as oh I don’t know maybe proteins and their maps you might’ve heard of this DNA wowowohboyohwow a representation of the flow of the universe a compactified infinitely generating memory of our complex two-dimensional propagation of
strings vibrating over the superduper Calabi-Yao manifoldian thing space-time there are no forces there are representations of strings in one and two and three and closed by this superthingy complexipactification you know him or her as Father Time or Mother Nature or Einstein’s Theory of the Major-General Relativity but now we have new representations it’s ok they’re all iterative the power of
thought of the greatest human minds somehow keep their structure as civilization comes crashing down around them (and words have their limitations though we certainly haven’t reached them) and those thought-constructs once thought never to be forgotten by that beautiful spinor DNA (and words and processors, tools 2.0 or 3.0 idk stop thinking about numbers themselves they are not-things we just
need open and closed strings). The theory exists a priori existence actualified, thussuly treat everything you encounter as a piece of the grandally united compactified in all its glory oneness not twoness not nothingness just open and closed strings of existence. Don’t worry it’s all in your head. Also: the secret to happiness is love the defense of death is love the meaning of hope is love the progression of humanity is love the purpose of existence is love. And closed
strings…this cat likes rubber bands: that is love
