Essay Abstract

A goal is a mere perspective of the state of action performed by a sentient being in duality brought forth in to play by the universal singularity of consciousness, i. A goal does not exist by itself, it is rather created by the intention of consciousness for engaging itself in the process of dualistic existence. A goal is a mere mile stone in the eternal play of existence, however an important one.

Dear All,

We can create an omnipotent and omniscient AI being, big brother, but it will take our loving divine nature for the big brother to realize the true omnipresence of universal singularity of consciousness, i, in human beings. I hope that we will make our big brother to be not just omniscient and omnipotent but also share the essence of omnipresence like our loving father, GOD. It's only through the human emotion of love that we can realize the omnipresence of universal singularity of consciousness, GOD

I "am" present, potent and scient

i "is" omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.


zero = i = infinity.

Dear Sridattadev,

Thank you for your comments on my essay.

I have read your essay and followed the link to your website that you left on my blog. I can't say that I understand everything that you are saying but I can see that we would agree that consciousness is a fundamental element in the Universe. Unfortunately, I think that your approach might be a bit too esoteric for the audience in this contest.

Can I ask you a question ? How did you get to all these conclusions ? was it through meditation ?

All the best,

Dear Patrick,

Yes we both concur on the point that consciousness is the fundamental aspect of reality. I have arrived at the conclusions through several introspectional analysis of my experiences in life, we can call it meditation. My goal is to spread the true joy of love and peace that I have found with in during this journey with out (all).



Joe Fisher replied on Feb. 9, 2017 @ 16:52 GMT
Dear Sridattadev,,

Please excuse me for I do not wish to be too critical of your fine essay and I do hope that it fairs well in the competition.

Only nature could produce a reality so simple, a single cell amoeba could deal with it.

One real visible Universe must have only one reality. Simple natural reality has nothing to do with any abstract complex musings about any imaginary invisible “consciousness is the fundamental aspect of reality.” Real visble reality does not have any abstract fundamental or consequential aspects.

The real Universe must consist only of one unified visible infinite physical surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

A more detailed explanation of natural reality can be found in my essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY. I do hope that you will read my essay and comment on its merit.

I've learned to read your essays early as they promote the 'feelgood' electro-chemical release in my brain. Thank you.

I've also just related your agreeable concept to another essay and apologise as I think I spelt your name wrong! It was either Joe's or Edwins. I certainly described a view of a singular consciousness energy 'field' or state under Edwins and please do give your view on that.

I like your "rudimentary definition for goal as a logical end point in what seems to an endless process". But might this be part of a layered structure with original goals, consequential sub goals, then more from those as a 'cascade', all 'looping back' as thoughts to a check correspondence with the original goal (or sometimes not!) ?

I do love to play too. But do you really think that the inclination of children to experiment during play 'needs' mathematics to exist first?

Dear Peter,

Thanks you and I am glad that I can induce some feel good experiences with my words. I have gone through Edwin's essay and he is referring to the same singularity of consciousness which is the fundamental aspect of our existence. All I can say is only absolute consciousness exists and our mind uses mathematics to understand it. The only way to dissolve into consciousness is to let go of the mind and just be in the moment as it is.

Dear Sridattadev,

Thank you for nice essay and very nice imagination of concepts of Goals, Consciousness etc. But I did not like using the concept of singularity in God himself. Your words…”It's only through the human emotion of love that we can realize the omnipresence of universal singularity of consciousness, GOD”…. I feel singularities don’t exist, even in consciousness….

Why one should put every unknown to God Himself/Herself… ? One should develop science based on reality. Once some variable is imaginary… everything based on it will become imaginary…. Is it not? Science should be based on real things, everybody should be able to get same result for the same initial conditions….

What do you say….?

Dear SNP,

Singularity or GOD in my perspective is not the scientific unknown, but one's true self, so the question is do we really know our self? and when we do we will realize that we are all much similar in our wants and needs than not and that is universal love. There is only one singularity, how can there be multiple singularities be it mathematical or physical as the definition of singularity means just one and only, if you encounter multiple in science and mathematics it means that we have not yet arrived at the absolute one singularity. It's easy to get to that absolute singularity that lies with in us and eastern esoteric philosophies have elaborated on how to do that and they are scientific in approach as well. As we are in the process of creating AI which will become omniscient and omnipotent , i recommend that we incorporate the values we share of omnipresence of life with it and make it loving just as the creator who created the reality let all forms of life co exist naturally while incorporating certain degree of hierarchy. So doing real and practical science is important, but if it goes unchecked it could lead to disasters. “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” - Albert Einstein. "Science without religious morals is dangerous, religion without scientific truth is death."



Satyavarapu Naga Parameswara Gupta replied on Feb. 15, 2017 @ 23:22 GMT
Dear Sridattadev,

Wow wonderful analysis… What you said about Singularity is true, it is one only. The singularity what I was referring is from Physics and Math only. You have clarified well about your concepts now. I am giving a good rating to your essay… I am also a firm believer of God….

Best wishes to your essay…

Dear Patrick,

I read your essay today and find that we are in more agreement.

I adhere to view that the Universe is infinite and has always existed. And now, at the dawn of the technological singularity, we have chance to bring potential existence, potential non-existence into a 3D material reality.

We can talk about problem of digital mind and look beyond the horizon of events after the point of singularity – “Digital mind - one of the ways to immortality”

Dear Sridattadev,

Excuse me, I mistakenly posted the comment to another author you. But it allowed me to read your very interesting essay. And I agree with your conclusions about our choice to be contended with the goals that we can achieve in this game of life and death, hence once we realize

who we truly are there are no goals as such it’s all play.

Dear Alexander,

Thank you for your kind words in the post "there are no goals as such it's all play" essay. Congratulations on your out of the box hypothesis of hollow sun and your in depth explanation of how this might be the true case and how humanity can benefit from pursuing this approach to attain sustainable energy on earth.

I would like to add that all possible configurations of sun are possible, only difference is how long that configuration lasts and for what purpose aka goal it i created. Universe does not leave any possibility alone. If it intends it can manifest, the key is intention. For example we can generate energy out of a burning match stick, we can delve in to the dynamics of how the match stick burns, but it's important to understand the intent of it's creator, the purpose of match stick is to burn for a brief time till it turns on something else. Now there are pulsars in the universe, they too radiate energy in a different geometric pattern on a different time scale and at different intensity and we might not know it's purpose fully as humans but there is an intention behind it's creation. It can be that nuclear fission is the answer in some cases of our energy needs, just a match stick in other cases and may be a hollow sphere of nuclear fusion as per your beautiful proposal for sustainable energy. So, we need to understand the goal better as much as we do the ways of achieving it.

We need to accept that it is not the lack of energy that is causing the suffering on earth, but the lack of willingness (human intention) to share the energy that we have with each other is the cause of all suffering and then we can go about achieving sustainable energy. Hence i am preaching love through mathematical models in the hope to deflect our intentions in the right direction.



Wilhelmus de Wilde wrote on Feb. 21, 2017 @ 15:11 GMT
Dear Sridattadev

I cannot but agree with you, we are relly thinking the same.

I once made the comaprision of the infinity of choices with the Bloch-sphere.

It is a miracle that the whole reality plus TS is just a singularity, a beautiful miracle, that we can only partially understand.

Thank you and I will give your essay a rate of infinity.

Dear Ms Dixit,

I recommend that you watch this small video on divide by zero and pay attention to the final segment of 0/0, the answer to the singularity of consciousness, i, is in it, we are all that singularity i = 0/0, but appear to be different based on our approach to that i and that is duality or relativity. We are one and the same in our essence and mathematics is the proof.

Dear All,

Universe is an i-Sphere and we humans are capable of interpreting it as 4 dimensional dual torus inside a 3-Sphere, which consists of Riemann 2-sphere as Soul as depicted in S=BM^2 diagram in the attached doc. Soul is the simplest of the complex manifolds with in the 3-sphere, Mind and Body constitute the remaining complexity. Soul, Mind and Body are in a toroidal flux in human beings, exactly at the center of the 3-sphere one can experience the unity of the trinity and that is the now moment we experience. As there are 4 dimensions required for a 3-sphere, the regular 3 dimensions of space and the fourth dimension of time, it is obvious that the 2-sphere (Riemann sphere) of consciousness with in us is with out the time dimension and hence the saying "eternal soul". Poincare` conjecture implies that consciousness is homeomorphic (same or similar) in all beings manifested in all dimensions of the universe, as i have shown that Riemann sphere can serve as the fundamental unit of consciousness.

Indeed the universal love is the only one torch of truth.The rest is vain.The altruism like the sister of universalism.

I have formulated a mathematical function and calling it "ISA function". ISA function is analytic continuation of Riemann's Zeta function, it describes every point on Riemann sphere and can be effectively used in proving Riemann's hypothesis. Please see the attached pdf.

ISA function describes Riemann sphere and is the true analytic continuation of Riemann zeta function

ISA(S) = Sign(Re(s)) * Sign(Im(s)) * Cos(Re(s) * Pi) * e Power (Im(s) * i * Pi)

​ISA(1+1/2i) = Sign(Re(1+1/2i)) * Sign(Im(1+1/2i)) * Cos(Re(1+1/2i) * Pi) * e Power(Im(1+1/2i) * i * Pi)
