Beyond The Undulant Quiescence Plus an Ongoing Model of Reality

Natural Philosophy: Beyond The Undulant Quiescence (by Iona Miller): Like pandisciplinarian research, natural philosophy explores the cosmos by any means necessary to understand the universe. A strategic model retains usefulness for comprehending our own nature in the environment, beyond yet integrated with the models of science. Transgressing the fortified boundary between natural science and the humanities, the hidden language of the archetypes of nature helps us translate the dynamics of our Being and Becoming. A multidisciplinary approach can present and explore a variety of theories without advocating them, ideally leading toward best practice. Complexity demonstrates a science of surprise that supersedes the boundaries of nature and culture, transcendental theorizing or unreflexive presumption.

How can we understand the various cooperative effects of systems, whether they belong to physics, physiology, psychology, biology, etc.? In contrast to the analytic reductionism of classical science, systems philosophy integrates theory and philosophy to foster reorganization of thinking and knowing perceived reality. Rather than explaining what things are, we explore and describe how things work. Meta-narratives bind society and cultures together, integrating events and actions into meaningful patterns. The world of experience remains one of perceived reality and worldview.

An Ongoing Model of Reality (by Alan J Oliver): The distinction between the physical reality and Prespacetime has been called the virtual state in some papers. For the sake of consistency I will use the latter term. In the virtual state the five elements would exist, as Bohm and others have suggested, as information in potential. It is interesting that the ancient teachers of Yoga described the finest particle as being a point without mass, adding that where a conjunction of these points occurs, a point with mass can appear. One could say their observation is analogous to a scientist’s description of the particles which pop in and out of empty space. What I draw from this is that every real particle of matter has its virtual potential in the virtual state. What is less obvious is the likelihood that this potential exists outside of the dimension we call time. Moving our focus to the point of the Big Bang, a moment in which there is an absence of matter, such as the state of a singularity or the Big Crunch, there would be a potential corresponding to that state, capable of triggering the appearance of the precursor to the formation of hydrogen, resulting in a new state which involved space and time in the physical sense. Thus the evolution of reality unfolded.

Holographic Archetypes: Top Down & Bottom Up Control of Personal & Collective Consciousness (by Iona Miller): There is a pre-physical, unobservable domain of potentiality in quantum theory. It is the basis of fundamental interconnectedness and wholeness of Reality. The human body is not an object in space, but seamlessly welded to spacetime. We are not merely a phenomenal body of flesh, but one of awareness, of consciousness, a living interface of inner and outer field phenomena. The brain is not confined to our skull, but permeates our whole being through the intracellular matrix and sensory system, as well as the strong EM fields generated by the beating heart. Archetypes are rooted in or emerge from the holographic source field as attractors, chaotic systems having fractal or reiterative structures that repeat at all levels of observation. They never settle into equilibrium, periodicity, or resonance. Transpersonal experience creates a new interpretation, or perspective on reality. Systems arise from positive feedback and amplification. Thus, archetypes introduce erratic behavior that leads to the emergence of new situations, including creative insight.
