Retrocausality

Here are two new videos for you on the subject of Retrocausality. Does anybody have a solution for embedding videos nowadays into the automatic distribution to email subscribers of this blog? Using the embed code provided by YouTube worked well back in the day, but nowadays in the email version you just get a big ugly black box where the video should be. Suggestions?

 Retrocausality and Genes:

Retrocausality and Poltergeists:

A direct link to the above video is at https://youtu.be/dF84281QFkg

Here's the thing about Retrocausality: if the distinction between past present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion, then causality and retrocausality are the same thing viewed from different perspectives, as are matter and antimatter. How about that!

Enjoy the journey,

A Meme Vortex



A direct link to this video can be found at https://youtu.be/GsuWOnTUYZU

Right now a new generation of hopeful youth have been confronted with a generation in power, many who appear to be thinking only of themselves, not caring about future costs. How do those currently entering their twenties see a way out of that disaster?

The new ways of thinking about the future favored by a generation who have had the internet in their lives since birth now exist within an information space that allows them to use their extra-dimensional gravity effects to move the world towards a more desired path. Is this just New Age mumbo jumbo?

As Nobel laureate Kip Thorne has showed us in The Science of Interstellar, extra-dimensional gravity can be used to make changes happen within our observed spacetime. Understanding that ideas have gravity, have weight, have momentum, gives us an appreciation for their physicality. That physicality means ideas can be redirected to new trajectories when new ideas enter the space. This is the meme-space Richard Dawkins was imagining, in a way that is very similar to Brian Greene's description of space and time as really being out there, as really existing. Things can be pushed around in space-time, and they can be pushed around within our fifth-dimensional probability space just as readily. You see evidence of this each and every day. It's why the world is the way it is.

Richard Dawkins described the timeless whole of evolution as a River Out of Eden. Genes, memes, space, time, and probability... physics lets us see how all these things are really out there, really existing. But then Quantum Mechanics teaches us that the only thing that's provably real is Now, and everything else before and after is just clouds of probabilistic wave functions: local realism has been experimentally proven to not be a feature of our universe. And I would say Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle shows us the future couldn't possibly be written in stone, so free will is not an illusion.

Everett's Theory of the Universal Wavefunction shows how we can hold these seemingly opposing ideas in our minds at the same time. Everett's Many Worlds are really out there, really existing, and Everett insisted that there is no wavefunction collapse, there is only observation, and those other outcomes are just as real for the observers within those other versions of the universe. Everett said those other outcomes are orthogonal to the version of space-time we find ourselves to be observing. What's orthogonal to space-time? The fifth spatial dimension.

So what happens when a new way of thinking about time, space, and fifth-dimensional probability has been ingrained into a generation? Imagine this: what if every person of voting age were forced to vote? We would have true consensus. But what if only those of a certain age or demographic were to wield the power of a mandatory vote? I'm excited to see what happens if persons eighteen to twenty-five start a Meme Vortex that makes a forward-thinking change in the world.

One Meme Vortex that is starting to pick up energy right now is the guaranteed basic living wage. A flat 2% tax on all income, big or small, would allow the wealthiest to share their good fortune with the world while making too little a dent in their income to worry about for all but the most greedy. As a market and job creation stimulus this plan is without parallel, and a capitalist's dream. Suddenly the world is your customer! Suddenly every human has a bit of money in their pocket, which means they will pay each other to make things and to do things, helping them all to have a happy life. This is the AI Utopia, the Singularity, the Ascension, the Illumination: the change that is coming has many names. This is the point where everybody wakes up to see themselves in the fifth dimension, where Einstein agreed a century ago that Maxwell's infinitely scalable field equations for our reality are resolved.

Like the quantum physicists say, information equals reality. A Meme Vortex happens within information space, so it can be worldwide. In the physical world, a meme vortex spreads through human contact and social media sharing, so the way a group are connected together can create spiderwebs of physical connections: those are the engines that spin up our tropical meme storm into a hurricane. And if we are thinking of North America, then the Vortex that is spinning around this part of the world has its geographic center at Winnipeg.

Winnipeg happens to be where my son Mark is doing leading edge Machine Learning research connected to his work as a Doctor of Nuclear Medicine. Mark has constructed artificial intelligence algorithms capable of making medical predictions with astonishing accuracy, you'll be hearing more about him in the months to come I'm sure.

Imagine a world where menial tasks are only done by those who enjoy them, otherwise robotics do all the hard stuff, and the mind-numbing repetitive stuff. Imagine a future where AI takes care of our wants and needs, and everyone can pursue whatever passion they might have to learn and have new experiences. Can you imagine a time when when people might even be able to upload their consciousness, and experience other versions of their own lives within Everett's Many World? Simulation Theory has been supported by many respected scientists.

This sounds like a world at peace to me. Imagine. Would we finally be dreaming the dream of the Beatles? Love is all you need. Can you use your love for the world to help create a Meme Vortex?

Let's make things better.

Enjoy the journey!

The Big Bong Theory

Here's another live streaming video about our Spooky Clock, this time showing how broken it is and yet it still keeps starting.



In this video I make a proposal. Like retiring a player’s number, I think a certain TV show that has just ended its 12-year record-breaking run now clearly has fair claim to the Big Bang label in the public consciousness. So to avoid confusion, from here on in I suggest we use a new name for the event that locked in our particular universe at its beginning in spacetime. Some physicists have said the initial impetus that creates our universe is like a giant cosmic bell being struck. So to avoid possible confusion, from now on let’s call it the “Big Bong Theory” instead.

Enjoy the journey!

How's your Korean?

I've talked in this blog before about the Korean channel that posted a stolen copy of my video with my copyright notice removed and without giving me credit, and they have gotten over 2 million views. Here's a video that already has over a half million views posted by a different Korean channel which actually shows me the courtesy of posting a link to my popular "Imagining Ten Dimensions in Two Minutes" video in their video's description. This is an animation they created which shows my approach to visualizing the dimensions. I have no idea what the subtitles they've added say, but I do appreciate their willingness to at least acknowledge my work on this subject.

Any Korean speakers interested in posting a translation in the comments? Google Translate says the video is entitled "Secret Level of 11 Fits the Incoming Shot", which does bring up the fact that they continue the process to an 11th dimension in their video. With my project, I have often suggested that the 11th dimension could be the moving point that moves from position to position within the other dimensions, and this would align with the idea that "time" is a way of describing change from state to state, which I would say is the same thing: 10 spatial dimensions plus one temporal dimension could give you the 11 dimensions some cosmological systems support.

Tenth Dimension on TopTenz


Here's a new video featuring Simon Whistler of the popular YouTube channel TopTenz describing my approach to visualizing ten dimensions. Thanks for your support, Simon!

With over 850,000 subscribers to TopTenz, I suspect there are a number of people reading this blog entry who are not previously familiar with my Imagining the Tenth Dimension project. The videos I'm posting below are useful as a step by step introduction to how I am using the logic of the point-line-plane postulate (the accepted methodology for visualizing any number of spatial dimensions) to creatively explore what these dimensions could mean all the way up to ten. As I've noted from the beginning, I'm not a physicist and I'm not pretending to be one, but the interesting connections between this approach and string theory, cosmology, spirituality, ancient mysticism and much more are what have continued to make this project the subject of much discussion since I first launched it in 2006. Online sites for Discovery and Scientific American have, over the years, written articles praising this project, and author and research scientist David Jay Brown, who has written extensively about modern psychedelics research, called the book this project is based upon "one of the most brilliantly-conceived and mind-stretching books I have ever encountered".

As a boy back in 1963, I was first introduced to the idea of spacetime as a structure that could be bent and folded through Madeleine L'Engle's marvelous novel A Wrinkle in Time, which I'm excited to see is soon to be a major film release from Disney. Within the last decade we've seen a number of films and TV shows that explore the ideas behind extra dimensions: I've particularly enjoyed seeing the rise of Rick and Morty, created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, which plays with many of the same concepts I've explored, most importantly Everett's Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, a key to my approach.

Interstellar, the amazing Christopher Nolan movie, has a unique pedigree in the world of science fiction: Kip Thorne, winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics, acted as an executive producer and scientific advisor on that film. I've written in this blog about the connections between that film and my portrayal of the fifth dimension as being our Probability Space: it's great to see one of the world's most respected physicists advancing ideas I've been pushing for over a decade!

There was also in 2017 the news that the brain itself may be using extra dimensional topological mapping to encode memories and process information. To quote Aberdeen University's Ran Levi, one of the mathematicians who contributed to these findings:
It is as if the brain reacts to a stimulus by building then razing a tower of multi-dimensional blocks, starting with rods (1D), then planks (2D), then cubes (3D), and then more complex geometries with 4D, 5D, etc. The progression of activity through the brain resembles a multi-dimensional sandcastle that materializes out of the sand and then disintegrates.
Is our observed reality constructed from extra dimensional patterns? And is Elon Musk correct when he says there's a billion to one chance that we are all not in a computer simulation right now? I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I've been having a wonderful time exploring ideas such as these, and am particularly grateful for the continuing support of my youtube channel (currently approaching 18 million views!), where I have daily conversations with people in the comments sections to the over 400 videos I've posted there. If you are new to this project I hope you appreciate the passion and sense of wonder I feel for my little hobby project dedicated to the ten spatial dimensions from which the amazing universe we find ourselves within is derived. Enjoy the journey!
