Last Wednesday, I received an epiphany. My diagram below is the result of that. I think, feel and believe that my epiphany is important. It captures my current understanding of my blog topics: Data / Info, Energy vs Matter, and the Spacetime dimension.
Spacetime is the only known known dimension to us. In practical terms, space has 3 sub dimensions: length, width, and height. Scientists believe that there are more dimensions. The origin of my epiphany might be one of these. That particular dimension is an unknown unknown. In my view, it may well relate to a dimension that I call the Energy & Matter dimension.
All matter seems to have a finite life because entropy (my blogs) will take over and decay will start. Entropy is an unknown known in my diagram. My diagram also has a known unknown section governed by the axes of Space and Energy. In the Sumerian view and mine, this is where the Soul – and/or the Self – resides.
The circle reflects the scientific notion that no information can ever be lost (eg, no-hiding theorem). Hence, my circle is fluid or porous and will allow available collective knowledge to “travel” to the known known and the other three sections (eg, unknown unknown). In other words, this diagram is my representation of “one of the oldest philosophical theories”, called panpsychism (eg, my blogs, Wiki).
I’ve added the Body-Mind-Soul concept to three of the four quadrants. Perhaps, the fourth quadrant should state something like Energy (as a supplement to Body, Mind & Soul), and/or the Force (as a supplement to Entropy, Growth and the Self). Your guess is as good as mine.
I’m glad that I’m able to share this with you. It feels like a summer breeze, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
