Essay Abstract

Total ontological unification of matter at all levels of reality as a whole, its “grasp” of its dialectical structure, space dimensionality and structure of the language of nature – “house of Being” [1], gives the opportunity to see the “place” and to understand the nature of information as a phenomenon of Ontological Memory, the measure of being of the whole, “the soul of matter”, qualitative quality of the absolute forms of existence of matter (absolute states). “Information” and “time” are multivalent phenomena of Ontological Memory (OntoMemory) substantiating the essential unity of the world on the “horizontal” and “vertical”. Ontological constructing of dialectics of Logos self-motion, total unification of matter, “grasp” of the nature of information leads to the necessity of introducing a new unit of information showing the ideas of dialectical formation and generation of new structures and meanings, namely Delta-Logit (Δ-Logit), qualitative quantum-prototecton, fundamental organizing, absolute existential-extreme. The simplest mathematical symbol represents the dialectical microprocessor of the Nature. Ontological formula of John A. Wheeler «It from Bit» [2] is “grasped” as the first dialectic link in the chain of ontological formulas → “It from Δ-Logit” → “It from OntoMemory” → “It from Logos, Logos into It”. Ontological Memory - core, the attractor of the new conceptual structure of the world of the information age, which is based on Absolute generating structure, the representant of onto-genetic code of the Universe.

Vlad,

Great read. While I understand why we've done it (ie the dimensions we wish to probe are totally resistant to any conventional experimental tools), I also agree that we have taken mathematic abstraction a bit too far (ie string theory). I'm glad you also see a 'memory' in nature, and I do hope the idea becomes less controversial as time progresses. In fact this is very much what Smolin argued (obviously adopting a different approach) in Life of the Cosmos back in 1997.

I am still a little unclear as to how information is exchanged/stored in your model if you wouldn't mind elaborating a bit? Thanks!

Dear John!

Thank you for your valuable comment! As for the storage and exchange of information: I consider the Nature as a whole, without splitting it into "objects" and "subjects." It is our consciousness of the "split" Nature. Nature is a single structural integrity and ensures that the structural integrity of the (ontological) memory. The generating structure, its fundamental threefold device - there is «capacity» for «the storage» of memory, "the soul of matter." Memory "flows" from one structure to the other generating structure - the process of generating new structures and transformation of structures. This is the process we have observed evolution, "self-organization" of the Universe. Structural (ontological) memory "holds" and develops the Universe as an ordered structure, which is based on the absolute form of existence of matter. Regards, Vladimir

One real Universe can only do one real thing once. Wheeler interrogation can only be applied once in order for it to be considered accurate and relevant.

Therefore: Is the Universe real? Yes

Is information real? No.

Dear Vladimir

You surveyed many topics that sounded interesting, but I could understand your meaning only by 'reading between the lines' because you use very technical philosophical and other terms.

I like your use of delta in the title. As the increment in calculus it can be modified..not delta approaching zero, but delta approaching...Planck's constant. In my Beautiful Universe Theory I propose a model of the physical universe made up of a lattice of rotating nodes in units of Planck's unit of action (h).

You might have faith in Einstein's ontological views - he wanted clarity and logic..but unfortunately he based his physics on imaginative assumptions that have lead to many dead-ends. For example his proposal for a point photon absorbed and emitted as a particle has lead to the concept of quantum probability a mathematical convenience with no physical meaning at all. His concept of a fixed speed of light (c) led to the strange unphysical ideas of flexible space and time and to the cancellation of the ether from nature, an unnecessary and costly detour.

With best wishes

Vladimir

Hello, Vladimir!

Yes, I have tried to introduce new concepts and new constructs to their ontological justification. It's unacceptable for the physical picture of the world does not have the essential foundation. Empiricism has reached its limits ... It's time intelligence to "dig" the more remote the depth of meaning of the universe. The philosophy of "Big Bang" - a "home philosophy." From the explosions of humanity is tired ... Information era require a reliable foundation for the essential physics, and for the whole of human culture.

I am glad that you also develop the idea of "the incrementl" - it can only be dialectical. But, unfortunately, the dialectic of physics and mathematics is not very fond of ... As for the "ontological revolution Einstein-Planck" - the main thing that they began and left physicists good covenants ... obviously not only for physicists, but also for lyricists that need new picture of the world. Creative way of John Archibald Wheeler proof. As for the "ether", then he will be able to replace the "matter" or coexist with it only when members of the media "ether" will. They're always in the " ether" ...

Dear Vladimir

I agree with your hopes that physics will become a more intuitively acceptable science. Unfortunately I think Einstein took it into a too-imaginative direction. His results are correct but his assumptions about constant speed of light and flexible spacetime are fairy tales. Also his photon idea did much harm in physics. Eric Reiter in Eric Reiter's website proved the photon particle wrong.

I regret that I do not speak Russian nor am I a Russian.and used Google Translate to understand your comment..long story told on my website. It is a pity because I know a lot of Russian physics has taken a different path than in the West and I wish I could understand some of these directions.

I wish you all success

Dear Vladimir,

Yes, you're absolutely right. I think the problems with the physics appeared in connection with the unsolved problem of the foundations of mathematics that mathematicians and philosophers decide for over a hundred years. Some say that it is - a perennial problem. I do not agree with this statement. The result of this development the fundamental sign systems: physics mathematics today - it's science ontologically unfounded! This is nonsense. I think from here stems and modern problems of physics ("The Trouble with Physics ...").

Yes, I, too, English is very weak and I also use GOOGLE. The Academy of Foreign Trade studied French and Arabic. Yes, the problem of translations of articles of physicists from different countries it relevant. Of course, you have a very interesting biography and knowledge of Russian would help you to know more, including articles of physicists from Russia. Unfortunately many of them do not participate in the cotests FQXi.

I wish you every success,

Hello, dear Edwin!

Thank you for your thorough and detailed comment! To understand the nature of the information necessary to understand themselves first in the absolute (unconditioned) forms of existence of matter, as the "form" - the first entity (Aristotle). And only then comes the understanding of the "in-form", its location and the nature of the phenomenon as an ontological (structural) memory of the Universe. The design of a world in which "The Beginning" - "Big Bang," there is no Law and no one knows when it occurs - is the essential structure of the Universe without justification. Yes, I deliberately introduce new concepts and constructs are not consciously consider the concepts of modern physical picture of the world ("gravity", "weight" and so on), because there is a crisis in physics (Lee Smolin), and the objective of the competition, understand the nature of the phenomenon of "in-forma-tion" . That is, it is first necessary to rethink the concepts of "form" and "matter." As a result, the absolute (unconditioned) forms of existence and constructed on the basis of their Absolute generating structure defines language as being "linear-wave- vortex." The basic idea - the idea of a new generation and that is the main effect of in-forma-tion. And how is it to consider the next question.

As for consciousness, and its inclusion in the view of the world can only be done through the "setting" of his "vector" ("intentionality" in Husserl) and through the concept of "vector" - to grasp the "first law of the world" - the Logos (Heraclitus).

Modern physical picture is much poorer sense than a lyrical picture of the world. And it is unacceptable for the world-and one for physicists and poets.

And the fact that our thoughts are close - it's good, then physics and lyrics go to unified picture of the world.

I'd love to start reading your essay. Regards, Vladimir

Hello Vladimir,

Again welcome to the contest!

I want to mention one point raised in your essay in a soft form and not properly understood even by the scientific community.

In the first half of your essay you discuss the present crisis facing science today. I believe that the situation with this crisis is quite different from that with all the previous crises. It appears that, in science, we have never faced the crisis of such magnitude and of such consequences. In particular, I believe that we are faced with the radical change of scientific language, which has never happened before. Unfortunately, not many scientists realize this, which in turn contributes to the prolongation of the crisis. As I suggest in my essay, the essence of the crisis is the integration of the 'mental' into a scientific view.

My best wishes to you!

Hi, Kimmo,

Many thanks for a good estimate of the essay. My first task was to find a fundamental structure that Umberto Eco described as "missing." Structure on the one hand - a generating, on the other - the limit for thought. I con-struct-ed it from the very nature of phenomena that we observe in life itself, as well as the development and achievements of science, philosophy and traditional knowledge. The result of search and ontological construction - Absolute (unconditional) generating structure. The concept of "FORM" very updated. Absolute generating structure at the same time is the "house" of information- phenomenon of the ontological (structural) memory. Ontological (structural) memory - conceptual core of a new picture of the world of the information age, knowledge base and understanding of the unity and diversity of the world. Ontological (structural) memory is that. all breeds, the matter is that from which everything is born. Any ab- straktion has its source in the base structure. Maybe someone will find a different structure generating - for this hosts international competitions. Thank FQXi! I Wish you success, Vladimir

Vladimir,

Hi. I'm not sure if I understood everything, but I think I agree that you and I are kind of thinking along the same lines. If I understand it, you're also suggesting that there is some fundamental building block, the delta-Logit, which is capable of change (the delta part). And from delta-Logit all of reality, its and bits, is built? If that's what you're getting at, I totally agree. Several of the essays in the contest are about this idea, and I think it's right on. Most of them also are talking about the way physicists and philosophers of science are so enthralled with mathematics and Platonic realms that they're forgetting the real world may not behave the same as the mathematical world in their minds.

Anyways, good essay! Thanks!

Hello, Roger,

Thank you very much for your kind comment! Indeed. Many researchers are searching for the fundamental structure (or " fundamental building block,") that Umberto Eco calls "missing." This structure ("block") must be knowledge base including physical and mathematical. It is also called a "framework structure." That is, it should be: the "basis", "frame" and "frame" of the whole system of knowledge, including traditional knowledge. Of course it should be based on the real-world phenomena. In its construction should proceed from the ancient principle: "that top. so below. "A "Delta-Logit» is the original dialectical representant of this structure, a single mathematical symbol of absolute generating structure. Thanks! Vladimir

Vladimir R.,

Here it looks like you have made an interesting conceptual groundwork-involving plan for further understanding info. It offers a view that attempts to get rid of the unnecessary subdivisions of physics that lie between matter and field, and also dynamics of motion.

There is a point by your look-back number 23 that corresponds to a view enabling human intellects or minds to comprehend reality. That is, there is the actual occurrence of phenomenon (though representational) in the physical state of the human brain - understanding is a process.

One barely needs to reinforce what appears to be self sufficient in the historic support of the philosophic-style used here, than what your end quotations of what two greats themselves say.

But there is a question. While the idea of "Coincidence of opposites" has some meaning in context, as a read, it isn't explicitly stated till the conclusion.

Hello, William,

Thank you very much for a very deep comment. It touches the deepest foundations of physics and nature of the information.

Yes, you're absolutely right that it is necessary «understanding is a process» and understanding of nature «dynamics of motion». What is the initial construction of the first (absolute, unconditional) process? Where hidden "information" and what is its nature? It is necessary to introduce the of polyvalent concept "ontological (structural) memory" - "the soul of matter," which "holds" the whole structure of matter, "the process of generating" on all levels of being and is manifested in the "laws of nature." The concept of "ontological (structural) memory gives the opportunity to move to an understanding, and then the modeling of consciousness, and ultimately to the model of" self-aware Universe.

With regard to the interpretation of the fundamental dialectic "coincidence of opposites" (Nicholas of Cusa) - the rest of matter and its motion, then it is disclosed in my previous essay contest FQXi 2012: «Paradigm of the Part Vs. Paradigm of the Whole ... The Absolute Generative Structure »http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1362

If you can explain your phrase: «There is a point by your look-back number 23 that corresponds to a view enabling human intellects or minds to comprehend reality»?

The communication part of our essay is based on an ancient treatise on Sanskrit grammar called Maha Bhashya. One King Bhartruhari wrote a commentary on this called Vakyapadiya. After this book was translated into German, the Europeans came to know about this and linguistics was developed based on these theories. We have read the originals. But you may get English translations of these. These books are written based on an ancient treatise called Ashtadhyayi. This book with English translation is available in USA.

Dear Vladimir,

Asking question is in logic only.

When an experiment is repeated by any one and it gives the same result, then it becomes science. I mean here our thinking should be based on science and practical experiments.

Just thinking in logic with out practical experimental support can not lead us any where, what do you say?

Dear Satyavarapu Naga Parameswara Gupta!

Thank you for your good question!

The greatest experiment and dialectical logic - our life. Only the experiment of life itself and thinking about it, knowledge that gives science and its experiments - all together directs the right path to truth.

Hello Vladimir,

I really enjoyed your essay. I like the part of your conclusion - "Information as a phenomenon of Ontological Memory in nature is multivalent in its manifestations at different levels of reality". I think that my essay using dimensionality and the Fibonacci sequence sits well with yours.

Nice work - well done!

Dear Vladimir,

Zoran cracked a joke on my blog and made reference to your essay. Your deep interest in philosophy shows in your essay.

In your essay, you say:

1. "In mathematics, the process of “loss of certainty” began with discovery of “non-Euclidean” geometries and lasted ABOUT 100 YEARS", …

2. "In physics, “loss of certainty” also took place gradually, over about a hundred years since the beginning of the study of the phenomenon of electromagnetism, the peak is the theory of relativity with its paradoxes"

This in conflict with

3. "Physics in its development went on the way of “geometrization”. However, to date “the beginning of geometry” (ABOUT 2500 YEARS AGO) remains unclear itself"

In the Galileo Galilei work you quoted, he advises us that “Philosophy [i.e. physics] cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, AND OTHER GEOMETRICAL FIGURES, … without these, one is wandering around in a dark labyrinth”

In my essay, I suggest we go back 2500 years in obedience to Galileo's advice above. Do you agree?

Akinbo

Hello Akinbo,

Thank you for your comment! I see no contradiction in these phrases as "the beginning of geometry" (not historic, but essential) lies much deeper than 2500 years ago ... "The Beginning" - a production of the first tools, the invention of the first spear, bow first, the invention of the first pottery wheel and tire. That is, the development of Homo sapiens absolute forms of existence of matter. A "geometrization of physics" - this is a different process studies on the nature. To regret it passed without clarification of the essential " the beginning of geometry". The required depth of the simplest interpretation of the essential mathematical objects is a straight line, circle and triangle, clarify their deep nature.

Vladimir,

Thank you for your wonderful thesis and useful quotes. You'll notice from my essay that our conceptions of the limitations of mathematics as a description of nature closely coincide. Having suffered the indignation of mathematicians for my specific proposals for rationalising the relationship your essay was a great pleasure to read.

I do understand how some have struggled with your style of prose, doing so a little myself, but I did completely understand and agree with your message. Our whole way of perceiving reality needs a paradigm shift. I propose a first step identifying specific issues, and challenge the fundamental proposition of maths and predicate 'logic'; a=a. I hope you will agree this. I also, I hope, show the power of 'higher order' or logarithmic spaces and dielectrics, building an ontological construction which offers rationalisation of Bells theorem.

I particularly agree your; "crisis of representation and interpretation", "ontological gaps in the grounds of basic sign systems",

I suggest that 'nested' Cardano's Sample Spaces and 'Marilyn' both exposed the more consistent reality and show that; "the problem of justification of mathematics for some strange reason is diligently 'swept under the rug'."

I congratulate you on the essay, and for tackling a critical subject head on. In particular I look forward to your views and comments on mine, which uses a little less philosophical but more epistemological approach.

Very best of luck in the competition.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your kind words and good comment. Indeed, the direction of our research on the topic of the contest is very close. Theme of the contest is great. It just develops the theme of previous competitions and puts a deep question about the nature of the information, the essential connection between physics and information, the formation of a new scientific picture of the world of the information age, a new paradigm, a new "epistemic schemes" ..

Yes, unfortunately, not everyone understands the connection between the fundamental ontological justification of sign systems, physics and mathematics, and clarifying the nature of the information. All this is due to the need to address the structure of space, and as a result of the nature and definition of "place" information. But the most important thing - it is the birth of a new concept - "ontological memory," the nucleus of a new episteme. Of course, this concept is debatable, but I'm very glad that the contest has brought me to this "core", countersign, which "holds" our world, making it sustainable, "feeds" and the formation of new material structures. We can say that the world is "awash" in the ocean of Ontomemory, polyvalent phenomenon which is information. Once again well said John Archibald Wheeler on the importance of the philosophy of physics and information theory: «" Philosophy is too important to be left to the philosophers ".

Good luck in the contest, Vladimir

Vladimir, this is an excellent essay and you deserve a high position in the rankings. When theorists first learnt about string theory they though it provided a clear route to a unified theory but they have found that the situation is much more complex and uncertain. This is indeed a "crisis"

Now we have to explore further what the mathematics says. It will take a long time and ideas such as your Δ-Logit may be right.

Thank you for your kind and encouraging comment. Global Contest FQXi-a competition for new ideas in fundamental science, especially in physics. In the words of Nobel Laureate David Gross, we need to construction a «general framework structure». I'll add: with the ontological justification. The fundamental (!) Knowledge must be substantiated and the "bottom" and "top" - empirically (empiricism) and essentially (empyrean). Only the fundamental rationale of sign systems, physics and mathematics, and then building a «general framework structure» will give access to the understanding of the nature and location information in a unified picture of the world, united and for physicists and lyricist.

Hi Vladimir,

Your philosophical undertone is very heavy for me, I am more in agreement with Einstein's thinking in "taming the philosophy". However, I have found two good things about you and your theory that give me the incentive to rate you very good.

First, unlike many people here you have shown that you have taken the contest seriously and engaged in a very good way. I just don't understand why more people who entered this contest don't do the same, maybe they have not invested the time like me and you. Also, although I have done some trolling with the scoring, but it seems some people are making a career out of it, but I maybe mistaken.

Second, You might be surprised to learn that the mathematical structure that I have uncovered is nothing but your "ontological memory" in some sense. This structure is so wild, in each point in space(actually interpreted as space) it carries the information about its relation to other points(and the information they carry) in all the universe and that is translated to the usual probability density. That is why I call this structure the most generalized geometry there is.

I also left you an answer in my thread.

Hello Akinbo,

The current crisis in physics, as is well demonstrated by Lee Smolin in his book "The Trouble with Physics ..." is a crisis of the philosophical foundations, of the fundamental concepts of physical knowledge. Knowledge, not only of fundamental physical, stands on the turn of the eras. On the search for new foundations, new concepts and new fundamental ideas are directed just contests FQXi. Indeed, Einstein's philosophical testament to physicists all subsequent generations makes "dig" to the farthest depths of meaning.

Indeed, as David Gross said, speaking in Moscow in 2011 and in 2012, the need to search for a "general framework structure". And such a search is conducted by many physicists, mathematicians and philosophers. You and I are also participating together in this search. And it's very good. We need different ideas, different methods, different concepts. I am very grateful to the contest, he helped me to the concept of "ontological (structural) memory." I am confident that this concept should be the centerpiece of a new picture of the world of the information age. Physics makes the first steps to the physical structures of memory. Therefore, as I wrote in the conclusions of an essay calls for enhanced development of a "general theory of structures." Thus, the theory of physical structures is developing school physicist Yuri Kulakov in Russia. Regards, Vladimir

I am sure to read your essay and give a comment. Sorry, have not had time.

I will add to my previous answer.

John Templeton spoke of the need modern interpretation of Scripture. I think this applies especially to the idea of the Trinity and of the commandment "In the beginning was the Logos ..." in its original Greek spelling: Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ Λόγος ... Logos geraklitovom I understand in the sense of a "celestial law", which runs cosmos. This saying of Scripture I interpreted as a Super Axiom. The idea of the Trinity and the logic of the Trinity, more extensive than in the embodiment mathematics B.Raushenbah eventually led to the idea of the trinity of the absolute (unconditioned) of the states of matter (the absolute form of existence) and triune space 9 measurements (absolute). As a result, a simple mathematical eidos was born, representing the idea of the trinity of absolute states of matter: absolute rest + absolute movement + absolute becoming. Physics shattered world, but it must be seen and understood as a whole. In order to be considered very fast, we must first understand and see the whole. Need a "generalized framework structure" as a foundation, frame and carcass of knowledge (David Gross). And I drew a structure and ontologically grounded. On this I have written in an essay FQXi 2012.

Dear Vladimir,

I have read your essay one more time more carefully and I will honestly tell you my impression/opinion on your work - as from one person who really honored you as the truly thinker.

I see your work on the perfect level – by informatively, by strong consequences of judgments’, by foundation of arguments and kind/soft manner of offering the aftermaths’ etc.

I am really thinking that your work deserved to highest value that I have decided early.

However, let me friendly put one practically question, which I think may help you in your future activity. - What you have the real expectation from your efforts and creation? I mean - who will read, understand and will be ruled by your conclusions? I will bring one bright example to explain well the content of my question. Nobel laureate J. Alferov says these words some time ago - !

It will for you painful, but the nowadays reality it is: the physicists have fully ignoring of philosophers and they doing their calculus and experiments without any small attention on the opinions and viewpoints of firsts. That is the main trouble of natural science in my view: the oldest sage science (as well as the ethic and moral norms!) now seems as something unnecessary for anybody! Thus, we are coming to my work! It is necessary first to break this huge gap between mother science and her unthankful son’s! For this need to create something as ,,practical working philosophy,, that can work and can give concretely REZULTS, to show what is right and what is not! I have trying do it!

Hello George,

Thank you very much for your kind and insightful comment. I agree with Jaures Alferov. But physicists are forced to delve into the philosophical foundations of physics, as it forces them to make the crisis in the foundations of science, as well told Lee Smolin in his book "The Trouble with physics ...". Philosophical precepts of Albert Einstein and physicist John Wheeler no longer be ignored: "At the present time, a physicist has to deal with philosophic problems to a much greater extent than physicists of the previous generations had to deal with" and "Philosophy is too important to be left to the philosophers ". And contests FQXi say about the turn of physicists to the philosophical foundations of physics and mathematics. Is it possible to answer questions about the nature of information without philosophy? The information revolution makes physicists delve into the philosophical foundations of physics, mathematics, information theory…

Thank you for providing a philosophical journey into the intellectual attempts to grasp the absolute forms of existence. I particularly liked your concept of Ontological Memory as a semantic attractor.

The dialectical process that brings the universe into being can also be explained as the conditional entropy of the observer operating in reciprocity with quantum potential. (See my essay "A Complex Conjugate Bit and It".) As you so aptly point out, such a process "generates new levels of reality." Very perceptive!

According to you delta-Logit is ‘information unit representing the idea of generating new structures and meanings’, and is ‘qualitative quantum or prototecton, primary organizing, absolute existential-extreme; it is also a symbol, primary matrix of limit field of absolute states of matter; “Heavenly Triangle" or the Absolute transcendental figure’. Since delta-Logit is a unit of information, information is the ‘soul’ of matter and hence there is no conflict between It and Bit. Materialism is an objective reality and we are here to comprehend and describe it on the basis of delta-Logit. But in the conclusion 2, you are saying that ‘Reality and its phenomena at all levels of existence is the dialectic of “coincidence of opposites”’; there by claiming that reality is subjective oriented. You have stressed the importance of information in physics and mathematics, and also the importance of overcoming the ontological gaps between them psychologically. Your essay ends with the anthropic aphorism that “Observers are necessary to bring the Universe into being”.

I don’t want to say how far the above observations are consistent, but what I want to ask is how you succeed in this herculean task to accomplish the above mission you have set forth yourself. If this is accomplished, you are bringing about a complete transformation in our epistemological view of the world and I wish you all the success in your great endeavor. If you have time, please, go through my essay also (http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1827) and post your valuable comments in my thread.

All the best,

Dear Sreenath,

Thank you very much for your kind and insightful comment. One thing is clear that a new physical picture of the world of the information age with the deepest meanings can be constructed only together - physicists and lyrics. It is obvious that this model should be a model "self-aware Universe" (V.Nalimov), in which "Observers are necessary to bring the Universe into being.» (John A. Wheeler). This will be the model that David Gross called a "common framework structure." http://expert.ru/expert/2013/06/iz-chego-sostoit-prostranstv
o-vremya/

It will serve as a "framework", "foundation" and "frame" of knowledge for all of his "stories."

I'm sure you carefully read your essay in the coming days and will give my fair comment.

All the best,

Dear Vladimir,

Beautiful essay! I agree with you that it is important to overcome the "crisis of representation and interpretation". While, as you pointed out citing Galileo, math is the language in which we can read the big book of Nature, the exponential growth of mathematics made virtually impossible, or at least "unproductive" to pause and really grasp the meaning of the equations. Probably this is combined with a postmodern tendency to avoid interpretations in physics, and pictures in math (see this). I salute your efforts, and I think you may be interested in the writings of a philosopher who was concerned with related problems: here, here, and more you can find here.

Dear Cristi,

Thank you very much for your kind and insightful comments and for your reference. Absolutely right V.Arnold: «Unfortunately, I cannot deny the culpability of the mathematical community in the present aversion of the society and of the governments toward mathematics and the mathematical education.» ... «In the middle of the twentieth century a strong mafia of left-brained mathematicians succeeded in eliminating all geometry from the mathematical education (first in France and later in most other countries), replacing the study of all content in mathematics by the training in formal proofs and the manipulation of abstract notions. Of course, all the geometry, and, consequently, all relations with the real world and other sciences have been eliminated from the mathematics teaching. »

It is clear that the methods of teaching mathematics should be changed - this is required by the modern information revolution. You are given a link to a very interesting study Mihai Drãgãnescu: «L'Universalité Ontologique de l'Information», as well as his other studies. Reading them will require additional time, but I looked at links - it's very interesting! I will read your essay with great pleasure that in the near future, and will also write a comment. Title of your essay is very intriguing.

With best wishes and regards,

Vladimir

Dear Vladimir,

Your essay is worth reading.

I am not sure that there is a crisis in physics and in mathematics. There is a plethora of useful concepts and symbols to approach the real world and, according to Wheeler, we are participating in this creation.

I am not familiar with the representation you are talking about: 'Δ-Logit', I understand that there is a triangle in the Δ-Logit, there is the it, and what is the Log?

May be you can have a look if the 'triangle' O, 1 and \infty may be useful here.

The latter triple rigidifies the Riemann sphere to create the structure of 'dessins d'enfants'.

Dear Michel,

Thank you very much for reading my essay, your profound and important comment for me. Physicists and mathematicians themselves say about the conceptual crisis of physics and mathematics. Take "The Trouble with Physics" Lee Smolin and "Mathematics: the loss of certainty" Morris Kline.

"Delta-logit" is the Logos + It (the form), or in fact - representant dialectical increment of the material structure as a whole (information + matter + energy).

I am happy to read it carefully in the near future your essay.

Dear Vladimir,

At the bottom of Zenkin's interview

http://www.ccas.ru/alexzen/papers/ng-02/contr_rev.h
tm

there is

"Drawing is a very useful tool against the uncertainty of words" - Leibniz.

Of course, this is exactly what Grothendieck did with his 'dessins d'enfants'.

And as I said in the post on your webpage, the underlying triangle O,1,\infty possibly relates to your cognitive triangle Δ-Logit.

I fully agree with Zonkin's view. I appreciate very much what Vladimir Arnold did for science (including a lot of geometrical ideas and drawings). I am not so surprised that he wrote

"the possessing a large influence mafia of "left-hemispheric mathematicians" has managed to eliminate the geometry from the mathematical education (at first in France, and then also in other countries), by replacing all informal part of this discipline by training in a formal manipulation by abstract concepts"

For many reasons, I really believe that 'the crisis in physics' will start unveil by the use of these dessins.

Your second question is much more difficult to answer. You know that Descartes studied music as well.

Thank you very much for your very positive feedback and the high rate you gave me.

Good luck for the final issue of the contest.

Hello Vladimir -

I believe we're on a similar track - at least, that we're both concerned with unification of the field of observation - which naturally means including information in it.

I myself describe a cosmic paradigm of correlated energy vortices that include the evolving observer while describing a quantum/classical world correlation. The evolving observer, I show, is the missing link in many of our quests. I think it is this that impels Physics' expansion into Bio- and Neuro-Physics.

We are continually realizing that the Cosmos is fine-tuned to develop life.

You might be interested to see how I treat this argument, and - like you, I believe - how I expand the definitions of It and Bit far beyond those signified by Wheeler. I'm sure you'll find the resulting structure useful.

I totally empathize with your point of view, and have rated essay; I hope you will find something of interest in mine ...

All the best in the competition,

Hello Vladimir,

Great essay! I'm so glad I read yours. I loved your quote of John Wheeler, "We can well believe that we will first understand how simple the universe is when we will recognize how strange it is." I had not run across that one, but I think that it is true.

I also think you hit the nail on the head regarding, "Physicists have only recently started to delve into the essential foundations of their science – and very carefully." That's why I think it's a good thing that there are some groups out there asking the questions and there are individuals outside the area of physics, but deeply interested in the subject, that are beginning and continuing to push the envelope. If the answers were limited to our current thinking, we'd already have them. We have to stretch out thinking outside the current comfort zone, despite the fact that when we do, there are those who object.

I also think you made a couple of profound observations in your conclusions. One of them was, "Reality and its phenomena at all levels of existence is the dialectic of “coincidence of opposites.” How true.

And your conclusion that, "New physics of the information age is a New natural philosophy with the new “mathematics principia”, new fundamental “la structure – mère”. Understanding mind overcomes the ontological gaps in the grounds of basic sign systems – mathematics and physics" is precisely on point.

Thank you, and I look forward to looking at your website; perhaps we can correspond in the future.

Philosopher Merab Mamardashvili said a good idea: «The understanding of the laws of the World is simultaneously part of the World, which laws are understood.» A clear means "seize the structure." It is the "Structure - Mother" (in the spirit N.Burbaki - «La Structure-Mère). Then begin the "new physics" and "new mathematics " as a "General Theory of Structures» with the new "mathematics principia", understanding the problem "Elements of Geometry", the very foundation of mathematics as "the language of Nature."

Vladimir,

If I remember Alexei Losev in his fundamental collection first showed that Ancient Greek Classical dialectika and vulgar Soviet interpretation of it are very different things. There are speaking differently different schools of philosophical interpretation of Greeks legacy in Europe ( having 1500 years tradition of interpretation and translation from the Greeks ). Losev used just only very limited selection of German, French and English literature for his review. Thus, it could be very difficult to make any generalizations on particular subject without systematic historiography in different languages. Generally speaking, I have some doubts ( sorry, it could be very subjective and not popular ) on ' development of Physics of information ' based on popular Wheeler delusion. It is taking problem seriously, but not solution.

Dear Vladimir,

I have read your essay several times but I find it very difficult to grasp, even in broad lines.

1) page 1: "mathematics and physics have one foundation". But currently, the foundation of mathematics - at least, the most widely accepted one - is Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, which has nothing to do with the physical world. And the foundations of physics (ZF) - at least currently - are general relativity and the standard model, which have nothing to do with ZF. So how do I have to understand that statement? Or are you referring to other (new) mathematics and physics, which are based on one foundation?

2) page 6: "Kant's categorical imperative moves into the area of practical ontology ..." Kant's categorical imperative is a maxim that can be used to decide whether an intended (human) action is good or not: this is ethics. I fail to see how this has anything to do with ontology, the study of the things that make up the universe. The quote from Umov isn't helpful, I still don't see it. Could you explain that one to me?

Best of luck with the contest,

Dear Macroen,

Thank you very much for your comment. Excellent questions.

1.Yes, the foundation of physics and mathematics should be one - "the missing structure" (Umberto Eco «La struttura assente»). I introduced her option and ontologically grounded in the previous essay - is "absolute generating structure." http://www.fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1362

It can be understood as a "generalized framework structure."

2.In the journal "Uspekhi" was an article K.V.Kopeykina "" Soul "of the atoms and the" atoms "of the soul: Wolfgang Ernst Pauli, Carl Jung and the" three great problems of physics »http://ufn.ru/tribune / trib151208.pdf

Introduction to the physical picture of the world the concept of "ontological memory" as a central category thereby bringing the matter to the "soul" and hence consciousness and ethics. The world model for physicists and poets should be and can be only one - a "model of self-aware of the Universe" (Basil Nalimov) http://philosophy.ru/iphras/library/zizin.html

It is a model of the world, which was the dream poet Alexander Vvedenskii (1930):

Vladimir,

Thanks for replying to my questions.

There is another thing which is unclear to me. On page 4: "... the unity of physical (material) and ideal reality is shown in a single eidos, represented by a simple mathematical object and representing the fundamental physical principles." So as I see it, according to you we have a single mathematical object that represents both the essence (eidos) of reality AND the fundamental principles.

Usually, fundamental principles are represented by formulas, not objects. An object is a term of the mathematical language, a formula is a sentence of the mathematical language. E.g. Newtons principle "F = m*a" is a formula, not an object (term).

So my question is: have I understood it correctly that you want to represent fundamental principles by a single term? If so, isn't it then the case that you lose, that is, that you fail to represent the mathematical-logical structure of the fundamental principles?

I am interested in your view on the matter.

I will try to get to your essay today, despite a heavy workload. And I appreciate the comparison to Descartes. It is an honor. Though not mentioned much in this contest, he may have been a forefather of "It from Bit" philosophy. Though 'Cogito Ergo Sum' is usually translated from the first person "I think therefore I Am," if translated from the impersonal perspective, it becomes "Thinking therefore Being" which is the same as "It from Bit."

This prompted me to coin the phrase "It computes, therefore It Is." I will comment on your essay after due diligence, and likely have many kind things to say. In the meanwhile...

Your essay was very deep, and deserves to be expanded into a full-semester or even full-year course. (I noted that you also posted the article on the net as http://vixra.org/pdf/1301.0019v1.pdf.) Of course nine pages is restrictive (for example, each point of your conclusion could be further expanded into a separate chapter), and some of the comments seemed to reflect the disadvantages of trying to squeeze deep ideas into a short format, but you did a magnificent job of not only weaving various mathematical, philosophical and physical ideas into a fabric supporting your ideas, but also applying ideas from one field to another in novel ways. I found the essay very thought-provoking, which is what a good essay should be. (My rating reflects this impression, of course.) Bravo! Молодец!

Hello Vladimir,

I finished and greatly enjoyed your excellent essay. I think it took a while to get into its rhythm at the start, and that the abstract was a bit cluttered - trying to cram all the essential concepts from the essay into a small space. This makes it a little bit intimidating at the start, but it is a joy to read once you get into it.

Your knowledge of the Classics and Philosophy, and your ability to skillfully weave that into a tale about Information Physics, are impressive. I give (and gave) you high marks for a valuable contribution to our understanding. Perhaps the Delta logit will soon join the bit, qubit, and qutrit, as you suggest.

Well written, but certainly deep; you try to cram a lot into this essay's content, and that may be its main flaw. Perhaps with another page of content, or more, a better explanation of some concepts is possible. But I give you kudos.

Thank you for your comment on my forum and read my essay!

I think that the "o" and "1" requires deep interpretation to establish links as the first signs of a matter and its states, as well as the consciousness. In my concept consciousness is «vector quantity». A matter has three absolute (unconditioned) state, two of them represent the number "0" to "1". But the "0" and "1" (matter states) does not give a new generation. This makes only "3" - the state - of becoming of matter. Thank you for your appreciation!

Dear Vladimir,

Your essay is too much philosophical for me. I do not feel quite comfortable with it. I know you have found a lot of philosophy also in my essay but mine seems to be much simpler.

However I would like to address your important statement: “there is a crisis of the ability (and desire!) of mathematicians to understand each other”.

Mathematics is like music. It is an independent art usually cultivated usually without any conscious goal and driven by passion. There is a lot of different types of music. Musicians do not need to accept, understand or like all that stuff and they still create excellent pieces of art. They do not need to work together to create a one universal music style. It does not mean there is a crisis in music. There is a variety as never before. There is no crisis also in mathematics.

Quite different situation is in physics. Physics is closer to a craftsmanship than to an art (with no offence to physicists). It is usually practical or tries to be. The crisis in physics we know: QM and GR / the small and the big and nothing in between! And much more. The parts do not create a whole. So my proposal is to solve these troubles with physics using the geometry. The key is the one universal scale invariant metric (form!). But first of all we have to falsify that concept and carry out the spin experiment. Then we can possibly work out the practical physical math or give up.

Best regards and good luck!

Hello Jacek,

The ideas of John Wheeler, "trouble with physics" and the contest itself FQXi make every researcher to "dig" deep into philosophy. John Wheeler left a good covenant: "Philosophy is too important to be left to the philosophers".

Mathematics - Language of Nature. It is the language used by physicists that would discover the laws of nature. I think "trouble with physics" because of the unsolved problems of the foundations of mathematics. And the mathematics and physics uniform basis - the fundamental structure of nature (Universe). A language structure is the structure of nature. But what is it? That is the question ...

Yes, to develop new directions in mathematics - a new music. But we are talking about the foundation of mathematics as a fundamental sign system, which "closes the physics." Music has no such claim. But how mathematics can close physics, if she is ontologically unfounded science? Mathematics also need new fundamental ideas and concepts, as well as physics. The problem of the foundations of mathematics - is the most important "problem of mathematical Millennium».

Best regards and good luck!

This is our post to Dr. Wiliam Mc Harris in his thread. We thought it may be of interest to you.

Mathematics is the science of accumulation and reduction of similars or partly similars. The former is linear and the later non-linear. Because of the high degree of interdependence and interconnectedness, it is no surprise that everything in the Universe is mostly non-linear....

Hi Vladimir,

I thought your essay was excellent and well argued. I had to read it twice to more fully comprehend what you are saying. And as you made clear with your quotes and references, people have been talking and writing about, and had insights about, these issues for thousands of years.

I see our essays have a lot of ideas in common. You say that nature's language is represented by mathematics, and point out that we need to comprehend and interpret this language.

You say: "to grasp the structure [of man] is to grasp the absolute forms of existence" - i.e. we have to look at ourselves as an example of the nature of reality. And thinking is "the primary essence" of any thing; and what is most significant: "Observers are necessary to bring the Universe into being." You point out that the nature of information relates to the nature of being, and that it is the "soul of matter".

You point out that while "ontological memory" holds the structure of reality in place, a second crucially important aspect of reality is the one that "generates new levels of reality."

My answer to your question "Why the picture of the world of physicists poorer meanings than the picture of the world lyricists?" is the following:

Physics has shown that underlying everyday reality there is an information structure which can be represented by law of nature mathematical equations. Some say that reality is just a set of mathematical equations: this is the "poorer meaning". The richer, more lyrical meaning is that these mathematical equations represent an information structure, subjective experience of categories and relationships, indicating that the nature of reality is analogous to the nature of a mind or a being.

Cheers,

Lorraine

Vladimir,

It is a very thoughtful and well written essay. The problem is that I dispute the central premise. An ideal is not an absolute and that is the core of your argument. The absolute is a universal state. Shapes are definition, delineation, form. Absolute zero is not a point, line, circle, sphere, etc. It is the complete absence of energy and thus the interactive connectivity which...

Vlad,

Keep in mind that ontological and epistemic are a dichotomy, yin and yang, two sides of the same coin. Like energy/information, medium/message, discrete/continuous.

It's easy to see that at its base, everything is ontological, in order to exist. The problem is picking apart what is epistemic and understanding how the contextuality makes it all possible. Ideals are an effort to distill the ontological back out of the epistemic, to inductively extract that deeper structure and definition, but a circle is not a square. There has to be definition and structure and perspective that is specific to it reality. Like I point out in my essay, if you combine all the colors, you just get one shade. In order to be able to paint a picture, you have to keep them separate, but connected.

The ontological, the universal state, is purity, but then it lacks complexity.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for your thorough and insightful comment.

In his last essay FQXi 2102 I uncovered the foundations of my concept.

http://www.fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1362

It is ontologically constructed and justified with absolute generating structure that represents the first (fundamental) the process of Nature. I assume that "form is the first entity" (Aristotle), and considering the absolute form of existence of matter (absolute state).

1. The object I have only one - the Universe as a whole, "the self-aware Universe " (V.Nalimov), which includes all the state of the universe.

2. The existence of all the objects (and subjects) I see in terms of just absolute forms of existence (absolute states): absolute rest (continual state), absolute motion (absolute whirlwind, discrete state) and absolute becoming (absolute wave as the transfer of states).

3. Consciousness I see only as a "vector of consciousness." Consciousness is a vector quantity. "Vector" on - Latin - "bearing". He "mere/very" and it is "carrying". Its semantics in russian reveals more clearly its dialectical nature.

Some physicists want to "kill the dragon" - time. But the dragon has three heads. Killing time they try to eliminate the memory (ontological) of the world picture. The world becomes poor meanings. "The meaning there is in what direction ..." (Heidegger).

Before the "measure" should reveal the essence of the "measure» as «qualitative quantity " (Hegel). Understanding the "measures" lead to the understanding of "dimensions" of the world as a whole, and then the "dimensions" in physics. Therefore, the conclusions I have written about the need to develop a "General theory of measure."

Vladimir

Dear Paul,

Almost agree with everything except:

«... So motion is a more basic substance than matter and is the basic substance of which energy photons and matter particles are composed.»

The movement, the rest and the becoming of the matter is the basic structure of the world and that it gives rise to new structures. A key concept - "matter", then the dialectic of coincidence of opposites (rest and movement) and the becoming of matter, ie, manifestation of its forms in the phenomenon of "energy", "particles", "photons" and their "movement."

Intelligence in the Universe appears through the action of the Absolute generating structure, which is evident at all levels of existence as an ontological (structural) memory in the phenomenon of information, and at the highest level - the phenomenon of consciousness.

I'm not talking about who created the Universe, I see only its fundamental (ontological) structure, which is based on the concepts of "matter" and "ontological memory." Matter - is that from which everything is generated (Plato), the ontological memory - this is what creates and maintains all.

I think the problem now is not to develop a "complete theory", and in the development and justification of "general framework structure", which will be the foundation of knowledge. Version of such a structure I gave last essay of 2012 and developing in this essay.

Vladimir

Hi Vladimir,

Thank you for your comments on my essay. I left an answer to your question on my blog.

I read your essay and I think that we agree on a few things, especially the Universe as a whole and the ontological memory.

I understand why you want to use your delta-logit to store the information (your ontological memory) but I believe there is simpler way if you consider that the Universe is just a growing 3D information sphere and that the 3rd dimension is both space and time. That way, past/present/future information co-exist in the sphere (the Universe as a whole). I don't want to expand on it here, but if you are interested, you can find out more in my 3D Universe Theory.

Good luck with the contest !

Vladimir,

I looked superficially all philosophical essays (my fault, becouse I have no skills for philosophy). But I think: philosophy, mathematic and physic ought to go hand in hand. Than I read again carefully your essay. I found it is in medias res. So that I want to write the article together with you (where, of course philosophical part will be yours).

I especially like and accept this:

The attempt of /ontological revolution/ of Einstein-Planck remained unfinished. Empiricism helps physicists, mathematicians are helped by going to the highest floors of abstraction. The peak of the age of /loss of certainty/ in physics is /string/ epic going on for more than forty years. Physicists have only recently started to delve into the essential foundations of their science , and very carefully. But whether mathematicians manage to /close physics?/ [12].

And this:

Overcoming the /crisis of representation and interpretation” of the fundamental sciences is only possible in the way of total ontological unification of matter at all levels of reality

good luck,

Dear Vladimir,

Your essay is very interesting. I like the idea. Will think more and read your other writings.

I agree absolutely with Alexander Zenkin. We should be able to explain any well-developed mathematical concepts in simply and clearly ways, such that they are understandable to any high school students. This is particularly true in the era that "the cognitive computer visualization of mathematical abstractions promises a revolution in scientific cognition". We should ask top mathematicians to teach college freshman classes every few years; writing educational books at the high school level is even better.

I love to hear Nikolai Noskov in the YouTube link you posted on my page, even I don’t speak Russian. I have downloaded and read your essay several times so I understand it now. In contrast, it's easy to understand the messages in the songs you sent.

Your essay was a bit on the philosophical side for my tastes, however, I enjoyed it, especially the notion of ontological memory.

I was wondering: does ontological memory lives in subtime?

You can find the latest version of it here:

http://fqxi.org/data/forum-attachments/Borrill-TimeOne-
V1.1a.pdf

(sorry if the fqxi web site splits this url up, I haven’t figured out a way to not make it do that).

Ontological memory may be only indirectly accessible to us. Subtime appears to give it the kind of properties consistent with your description. My description: brief flashes of reality with long periods of darkness in between.

If I am only even a tiny bit right, I'm expect it will open up many philosophical questions.

I hope this leads to some even partial relief from the crisis of representation and interpretation in the fundamental sciences.

Let me know what you think.

"Information as a phenomenon of Ontological Memory in nature is multivalent in its manifestations at different levels of reality."

That uses all English words, but what on earth does that mean? Seems like a string of buzz words which happen to be in grammatical order. Much of the essay is like that. It's English, but Huh?? When I spend time to read these essays, I hope to learn something, but with sentences like the above, my eyes just glzze over, but this is one of the most highly community rated essays. I don't mean to be negative. Maybe other people are more technical than me, but I think I better represent the general layperson for whom this essay would have little interest or relevancy.

Dear Franklin,

Thank you very much for your comment and question!

In my essay I gave a link to my essay last year. I give it the essential justification of the fundamental structure of the world in the form of "Absolute generating structures." Matter is that from which all is born (Plato), "Ontological (structural) memory" is what generates and stores all. It is the very "structure" at every level of reality. What is the structure? The semantics of the concept gives us Eidos (the idea of) reality. In Russian semantics of the term "in-three-set" reveals the idea (eidos) of reality, its inner form. Therefore, the nature of the phenomenon (!) "Information" - the ontological (structural) memory of nature as a holistic process of generating, becomming and maintaining. The memory of the Universe sets its ontological algorithmic stores all the "codes" of the Universe, manifested in the form of "fundamental constants" and "coordinate system". To sum it up in our minds the deep structure of the archetypes of the world. In ancient times - a "three pillars", "three elephants", "three turtles" ... In the form of archetypal structure of the "sky" ("celestial law") appears "on the ground", i.e. in our minds, and eventually in science as the "laws of nature."

I apologize for the grammar in the English translation!

Vladimir,

Thanks for your kind message on my blog. Really glad you held on for a top 10 place. I'd felt 7th place had become my own after the last 2 years, but I have to say after being passed over twice I'm glad for an improvement. Now we find out if the judges really do support John Templeton's ideal of supporting exploration of advancements not doctrine. I think it's of rare value and well worth preserving.

My aim is only to try to explain and spread the simple logic of the unified 'discrete field' science which clearly better corresponds to nature than what we have now, though astonishingly proving the SR postulates without paradox via QM without wierdness. I see the problems as mainly;

1. It's initial unfamiliarity (as Feynman and others predicted)

2. The inertia of academia due to investment in doctrine (as Planck pointed out).

3. The stage of our intellectual development, so capacity to visualise dynamic evolutions. I see that as subversed by a swing too far to reliance on maths, and the lack of anywhere to 'hook' a new ontology to in our belief systems, which takes us back to No.1.

Do you think that's a fair assessment? In many ways this may be just a matter of presentation. But most importantly, do you have any assistance or ideas you can offer as one coming to the 'DFM' anew? (My last 2 essays are the precursers giving the fundamentals). This one really started as just a falsification exercise. It proved to have far more power that I ever imagined! All help and support welcomed, philosophically included.

Very best of luck in the judging.

As non-zero intervals of events is subjective, probability representation by Δ-Logit is also subjective and thus dynamic analysis of sequence of data subjectively by Bayesian inference evolves observational reality, in that quantization of time is imperative.
