The Droste effect

Quite some (scientific) articles compare the human brain to the Universe; in particular a 2020 ScienceAlert: Study Maps The Odd Structural Similarities Between The Human Brain And The Universe. Other comparisons may include: birth, growth, maturity, decline (a.k.a. entropy). Might the Universe - and everything else - mirror something called the Droste effect? Wiki:...

The SpaceTime dimension and the alternate Energy-Matter dimension

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.

The Art of War

The Art of War

On July 23, I prepared my diagram below. I wasn't sure if I had captured all. Remarkably, the July 24 remarks by the US Secretary of State proved that I was on the right track (eg, Guardian).  His remarks were about dualism (eg, free nations against Chinese tyranny) and about monism (eg, Chinese expansionism). As stated before, trialism seems...
