71. Looking out into space is looking back in time. "Now" includes the photon's perspective, where its emission from a distant star and its reception at your retina are simultaneous events, as we discuss in my video Light Has No Speed. So our Planck-frame-sized "now" includes not only our mind-bogglingly large 3D space, it also includes what Einstein was thinking about when he said the distinction between past present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

72. Could an all-powerful God make a rock so heavy They couldn't lift it? That's the engine set in motion at the striking of the Big Bong. The eternal pulse that drives the Universe is within us all, because we are all observing the same Universal Wavefunction.

73. Schrodinger: "I insist upon the view that all is waves". The geometry of our simulation has a frame rate defined by Planck's constant. But moving from one frame to the next is more like the sample rate in digital audio. The closer you waveform's vibration gets to half of the sample rate, the less accurately you are able to represent it, an echo of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. And yet, within the "Now" of our flipbook universe we see a universe made not of waves and interference patterns across the dimensions, but of point-like particles being pushed in two dimensions at right angles to each other. Virtually everything in the universe adheres to the same infinitely scalable field equations, that's how simple reality is. Right now, out of all possible universes we are observing this one. Because of this decoherence, this uncoupling from probability, you and everyone on the planet are observing the same wave, each from our own perspective, and in that way we are all One Thing.

As the point describing a wave calculated by Everett's Universal Wavefunction, we return to a viewpoint that was embraced by the God-fearing God-loving men and women who pioneered quantum physics. Consciousness is fundamental. And the fact that we don't feel it in our bones that general relativity and electromagnetism, and the hologram we are observing all reside with the fifth dimension is part of a 20th-century campaign to declare all religious and mystical thought as delusion. Would you like to meet a scientist willing to acknowledge forces from beyond our spacetime reality could be using extra-dimensional gravity to cause us to move on different trajectories with Everett's Many Worlds? Please read Nobel laureate Kip Thorne's The Science of Interstellar. #westartwithapoint

74. With, Gevin Giorbran gifted the world with a beautiful set of ideas. You can go to  if you'd like a PDF to help support his memory. The sacred ideal of a perfectly balanced underlying symmetry state has come under scientific suspicion of late, but we humans have always tended to support the idea of a loving creator that exists timelessly. Mathematically, we come from Tegmark's Ultimate Ensemble. Knowing that fact makes our presence as observers of this universe no less sacred, no less worthy of praise and wonder at the sheer audacity of it all! Omega is love. That's what God means to me.

75. "Consciousness is a singular for which there is no plural... the total number of minds in the universe is one." - Erwin Schrodinger

76. "I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." - Max Planck

77. This is the essence of Wheeler's self-excited circuit. Two forces at right angles to one another (in the fourth and fifth dimension, a.k.a. time and imaginary time) create the 3D shapes defined by modulating a point of indeterminate size to create the waves of our reality, all of which obey Maxwell's infinitely scalable field equations.

78. This screengrab is from Eugene Khutoryansky's excellent physics video channel at YouTube, here's a link. Over that I superimposed the same simple drawing of two waves at right angles to one another producing a spiral which we see above.

Understanding that the fourth and fifth dimension are just as spatial as the other dimensions, even though our 3D physical world only gets to experience them in one direction - as time and imaginary time - lets us see how the fifth dimension is always just "outside" of spacetime, with its additional degree of freedom allowing the fifth dimension to include the probability space of Everett's Many Worlds.

79. Wherever we go within the multiverse of Everett's Many Worlds, we all go there together... because we are observing the same wave function, the same universe. And as Schrodinger said "consciousness is a singularity phasing between all beings".

80. I saw this quote on twitter from @ElliotG78 and loved it: "My favourite tv moment was when I got voted off the weakest link, and host cornelia frances said 'I understand you like golf. Well, your teammates have decided your game was below par' to which I said 'that's a good thing' and they had to do a retake and change the script for her."
