Swerve cascade

Achieving a coherent understanding of motion continues to be essential in understanding the nature of space and time. Most physicists believe that because motion requires a sequential displacement in space means that space and time are components of the same fabric. Nevertheless, distinctly different entities often maintain interrelational behavior.

“Trouble ahead, trouble behind, and you know that notion just crossed my mind.” – Robert Hunter

Active Originator

External connection
Conditioned reality

Perceptual input must be processed. In Kant’s formulation of mental activity, the Imagination functions as the source from which sensibility and understanding develop. This correlates to Maritain’s creative intuition, with connaturality seeking knowledge by communication between the spiritual essences of contingent encounters.

“As natural physical beings we are bound by laws of nature, as moral agents by the law of practical reason, but as imaginative creatures we are constrained by neither and thus have creative power.” – Immanuel Kant

Progress Assessed

Some special sense
More clearly aware
Destiny disquisition

On a trip to the airport, a complex convergence of multiple roadways creates a provocative overpass predicament. During such encounters, it is desirable to maintain aesthetic cognizance. Experience increases the accuracy of predictive anticipation.

“It is notorious that philosophers disagree not only about the truth of particular theories, or the answers to specific problems, but about the character and purpose of their whole activity.” – A. J. Ayer

Infinite Unfolding

Prolonging the dynamic
Fundamental propositions
Conditioned by an event

Fragments of the fourth dimension coalesce into a dreamscape. The associated aesthetic affect is positively supported by imagination flowing from experience. More than a reflection of reality, art is the real of a subjective reflection.

“We pose only those questions whose answers are the pre-given conditions of the questions themselves.” – Alain Badiou

Event Horizon

General relativity
Spacetime boundary
Point of no return

At a human scale, observations of motion are time dependent. This correlation causes most physicists to conflate space and time by setting a speculative universal speed limit. Fortunately, for our potential future understanding, there exists a group of variable speed of light (VSL) hypotheses. These theories stipulate that the speed of light in a vacuum may not be constant.

“I feel as though dispossessed from the semblances of some crystalline reality to which I’d grown accustomed, and to some degree, had engaged in as a participant, but to which I had, nevertheless, grown inexplicably irrelevant.” – Ashim Shanker

Spacetime Curvature

Tensor manifold
Higher dimensions
Real projective plane

Embedded at an intersection of four-dimension movement, the highway shifts into a bounded vector field.

“Matter tells space how to curve, space tells matter how to move.” – Albert Einstein

Road Rush

Geometricized time
Organizing information
Sympathetic temperament

An essential feature associated with existence is irretrievably lost in the theory of spacetime. Specifically, conflating time and space destroys the present. Einstein said, “we who understand science know that the distinction between past, present and future is an illusion.” Nevertheless, that which is real at any specific occasion, in that present moment, is real independent of any observation. Try not to confuse measurements with the entities being measured.

“In science there are no ‘depths’; there is surface everywhere.” – Rudolf Carnap

Functional Relation

Observed events
Cause dependent
Idea guidance

Temporarily eclipsed by the contingent overpass, changing particulars emerge in transit. If understanding must be certain to qualify as knowledge, then it follows that no knowledge may be possible. Any wisdom involves a variety of faith.

“It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance; in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity, that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details.” – Henri Poincaré

Flow Equilibrium

High state of order
Far from equilibrium
Emergent complexity

An enormously sophisticated Universe implicates nature as intricate and positively infinite. As an aesthetic consequence, projects to describe and explicate existence propagate forevermore.

“It is necessary to study not only parts and processes in isolation, but also to solve the decisive problems found in organization and order unifying them, resulting from dynamic interaction of parts, and making the behavior of the parts different when studied in isolation or within the whole.” – Ludwig von Bertalanffy

Collective Thrust

Corner stone
Whole structure
Universal symbols

For Freud, the unconscious mind is the nexus of repressed thoughts, disturbing memories, and fundamental animalistic drives. For Jung on the other hand, rather than a storehouse of unacceptable repressed desires, the unconscious is a larger realm separated into the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious. Jung’s personal unconscious refers to all information present within an individual’s mind, but not readily available to conscious recall. His collective unconscious refers to unconscious mind structures shared amongst all human beings.

“It is out of the rich and mysterious depths of this unconscious that the intuition of being, mystical contemplation, and the mysticism of the self all emerge, each in its distinctive way.” – James Arraj
