Essay Abstract

Universe silence … Why? TechnoSfera … Where does it move? BioSfera … Where is the “non-return point”? NooSfera … What to do? The deep mind looks for primordial senses of the “LifeWorld”(“LebensWelt”). Сonsciousness, matter, memory … Self-Consciousness… Сonsciousness is attracting senses vector magnitude, intentional effect of absolute complexity. The Vector of Сonsciousness - the Triune Vector of absolute forms of existence of matter (limit states), the Vector of the Absolute Existential Field of the Universe, a polyvalent sense phenomenon of Ontological (structural, cosmic) Memory. Open Сonsciousness Vs. Closed Сonsciousness. On the basis of ontological and existential constracting method – method of a discretion and a reflection of existential repère-point, the Vector of Сonsciousness places milestones on ProtoGeometre's long way – the way of “knowledge of good and evil”, of rises and fallings, of births of “absolutely another”, from the point “Alpha” to the modern “point” of ultimate tension of the Absolute Existential Field of the Universe. Existential risks of Humanity and Open Science. New Open Generation realizing all existential risks of Humanity passable way and risks of coming Information era creates the Self-Aware Universe, filling it with the most deep meanings of the “LifeWorld”, at the heart of which Axiom of an absolute freedom of choice is laid. The minimum Program to overcome existential risks. The United Humanity raises up five Great Philosophers' Stones in memory of Protogeometre's rises and fallings on a long way of becoming of Humanity. Humanity is on a threshold of an Era of Eonic thinking.

Dear Jayakar,

Many thanks for your comment. I agree with you. Therefore it is necessary to build earthlings, as taught by Rene Descartes, "clear and distinct" Global System for Existential Security to reduce the level of risk for Humanity.

Such a system is not yet in the World. Earthlings "butt" with each other, thought about flights to other planets, instead of more reliably control the Future on planet Earth for the benefit of new Generations, for the benefit of children and grandchildren.

With best wishes,

Vladimir

Dear Vladimir,

an epic journey through the myth and evolution of man to the present day and beyond, poetically portrayed. I found your lists of risks and solutions an odd contrast. For me the least beautiful but most interesting part of your essay. That's because realization of what we are facing and what we can do about those risks will determine how we steer.

Good luck Georgina

Vladimir -

An extraordinary essay - I wish I could read it in Russian as I'm sure some of the concepts would be clearer and more precise! I was struck by many of the common threads between your essay and mine, The Tip of the Spear, particularly on the evolutionary transition of humanity from paleolithical to anthropocene to the modern era, and on the nature of the institutions that now control (and potentially destroy) human progress.

I'm not sure I understood your meaning in using the word "protogeometer", and I would love to hear more. Is this referring to Husserl's interest in early human geometry and the abstraction of form before the formalizations of Euclid? Or is this a reference to pre-geometry, the topic raised by Wheeler and others in the context of models for quantum gravity? In which case. Or both?

Thanks. I look forward to your response. - George

Dear George,

Many thanks for your kind comment. I began to read your essay. As for the "protogeometer " Husserl, then I had a goal to dig up the "beginnings of geometry", to the first signs - prototektons, see the initial "buried meanings". And they are certainly far deep in millennia, long before the Egyptian and Greek geometers. My first guide to traveling with "protogeometer" was Pierre Teilhard de Chardin . Remember his words : «But in depth, a great revolution had taken place: consciousness was now leaping and boiling in a space ...». After " protogeometer " painted "path" and "wave" of consciousness (vector consciousness) , I delved into the problem of foundation of knowledge, especially the fundamental sign systems - mathematics and physics, and then the problem of the structure of space, the nature of time and information. Quantum idea had extended to the idea of "quantum of thought-action" ("qualitative quantum") to draw a model of "the Self-Aware Universe "(V.Nalimov). As well said Alexander Zenkin: «The truth should be drawn and should be presented to "an unlimited circle"of spectators.»( Alexander Zenkin Science counterrevolution in mathematics)

My ideas are reflected in the essay FQXi 2012 and 2013.

I give the link to my blog in Russian).

Vladimir - Thanks for the reply and for the comment on my essay! I do not follow all of your comments and references - probably because my exposure to the literature you are referring to is so limited. I do think that pre-geometric concepts will continue to offer fruitful pathways through some of the puzzles in current cosmology and physics. Keep up the good work!

Thank you. George, for your kind comments, important questions and your profound essay, which is very close to me on spirit and direction of research. Yes, I hope that "the language of geometrical representations" lead physicists to model "Self-Aware Universe" (V.Nalimov), the same for physicists and lyricists. Then steer the future will be much easier. Physicists in the world is much smaller than lyricists and need mutual understanding and a deep understanding of the Logos (The Law, The Principle) and the Eidos of the Universe-Cosmos.

I wish you good luck!

Hi Vladimir , I am reading some of the essays . Very interesting and original many of those . I want to say thank a lot, for the very positive comment received in the past contest . And I gave another look to Delta-logic. In the essay You describe the delta-logic in the sense of "increment" . If You change the position, as a change of shape, in place of increment . Then the idea is very similar to the shape dinamics , this mean close to Julian Barbour .

Hi Giacomo,

Many thanks for a deep analysis of my essays. I think that the idea of "Increment absolute forms" a loaded meanings, namely the generation of new forms of meanings, new structures in their diversity. The central idea here - is the idea generation, which gives access to the idea of "ontological (structural) memory" and further to the phenomena information and time.

Con grande rispetto,

Vladimir

Dear Vladimir (its nice being able to say that without feeling I am in a solipsistic loop!)

At first reading I could not say I understood everything in your essay, but I was struck by a sense of serious intent, an urgent search for answers, and a sweeping poetic vision that thinks nothing of the practical and political problems of moving the UN to Iceland! May this search and others give little Victoria and all of humanity a new lease of life well beyond 2030!

Your Protogemetre kept reminding me of Blake's paintings of Newton and another of the Ancient of Days bending down drawing figures on the ground with a giant compass. Reminiscent of Archemides drawing figures on the ground just before being killed by soldiers. I hope humanity and its best plans find a better fate!

Are you saying analytical geometrical thought has boxed in and limited human thought and reality, and that we should find another more natural starting point? Neo scientific Zen Buddhism rather than Greek logic?

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for your deep and interesting comment. Search "the beginning of geometry" is important for solutions the problem of justifying knowledge, especially for basic sign systems - Physics and Mathematics, overcome the "crisis of representation and interpretation" (T.Romanovskaya)

This requires an integrative approach that includes all systems of knowledge, including traditional, rational and irrational. Knowledge needs a solid foundation, but it is not available.

The present crisis in basic science - a " crisis of understanding ." But to understand to mean "grab structure" (G.Gutner Ontology mathematical discourse)

Journey to the beginning of knowledge helps you see, justify and draw the structure of the "beginning" in the "language of geometric representations." As well said Alexander Zenkin: «The truth should be drawn and should be presented to "an unlimited circle"of spectators.»( Alexander Zenkin Science counterrevolution in mathematics)

Physical picture of the world should be the same rich sense as world picture lyricists.

Unified picture of the world for physicists and lyricists - then management of the future of humanity more reliable, because there will be understanding.

Best wishes,

Vladimir

Dear Valeria,

I thank you for very deep comment and questions.

I will try to answer them with my assistant GOOGLE.

Thanks for links concerning evolution of the genus Homo and its stages, but I generally analyzed and interpreted signs which were left by our ancestors for us. I didn't divide the genus Homo into subspecies. My "progeometer» - «homo universalis». In the concept I analyzed generally evolution of real signs which "progeometer" left for us on Earth in the course of world knowledge. The aim is the search for "buried primary meanings" and then - the essential foundation of fundamental symbolic systems - mathematics and physics, understanding the nature of information and time as polyvalent phenomena of the ontological (structural, space) memory. Eventually, I built a model of the Universe, which included the primordial limit senses of the "LifeWorld" (E.Gusserl). This was the main result of all my research, presented in three essay contests FQXi 2012-2014.

The concept of "eidos" (image) I represents the "spirit", "body", "consciousness." Therefore, the "language of geometrical representations" I understand how the language of images in a broad sense. This concept I took Basil Nalimov in his article "The universe is aware of itself."

Thanks for all your links, I start reading soon.

Sincerely,

Vladimir

Dear Vladimir!

Thanks you for reading my long comment, and further looking after.

Sorry if there may be misunderstanding due to I haven't any knowledge about "protogeometer'. I did some looking after, however it is some 'gap' in my apprehension, in this sense.

In a broader view, I can also understand the mathematics and physics would be the highest abstraction languages with which relation and transformations of the spirit=(inherent)consciousness and physical body(as a vehicles of consciousness) would be described, giving more refined interpretation how the memory works through a medium we call - mind.

However, I a bit disagree, putting the 'image of 'man' somehow equal with an abstract symbolic systems. This is 'rigid' interpretation only, which can put outside one his own thoughts, who actually wish to conceptualize and describe the fundamental meaning through very himself..

This is a long time problem with remarkable thinkers, they are inclined to think out of his actual bodies. Simply said, they forget they are in a complex physical body meanwhile they are doing any kind of abstraction to describe, apprehend the fundamentals! So, even they may be at a highest level of understanding of the basics, even they can lose his humanness closer to an everyday man, during this process. This is bigger danger, than do not understand quite exactly the fundamentals! I only tried, to point out to this in my essay too.

High regard,

Dear Valeria,

I totally agree with you. Protagoras said, "Man is the measure of all things." Through mathematics and physics I would like to understand more deeply the concept of "measure", and then "grab" the very first structure of the Universe. Abstraction is born in the mind of the first structure. Picture of the world of physicists and poets can be only one. Now, unfortunately, the picture of the world is fragmented and its grounds are illogical, so sad:

We do not see the world in detail,

Insignificant all and fractional.

Takes me sadness from all this.

And how to steer the Future fragmented World?

Vladimir,

Excellent job again. If only we could educate our children to think in that way we'd have some chance. I picked out my favourite two proposals of your comprehensive 'road map' for a way ahead;

1) Deep radical reforms of education systems directed on education of the creative, responsible and ethical human. The philosophy and Ethics have to be the main basic disciplines in education of existentially open personality

2)..creation of Global system of search and selection of new knowledge.

Though I do wonder if our penchant for bureaucracy and self interest may allow those to function without the full package. In a way the monopoly of academia on point 2 has already planted us into a theoretical rut which is increasingly difficult to escape from.

Great essay, right on topic. I hope to see it near the top of the pile.

Dear Peter,

Many thanks for your kind comment. I think that there is a hope for the reliable future for new open generation. The generation which grows without fear, but thinks of the future and of the future of the following generations, suspects decades forward. The Philosophy gives the chance to raise creative, altruistic open generations of inhabitants of the spaceship by name "Earth". Obviously, it is also necessary more purposefully to overcome "understanding crisis" to enter for students the special courses "Philosophy of Mathematics" and "Philosophy of Physics" at mathematical and physical faculties.

Many thanks of FQXi and to all patrons of contest, that brings together people for "brainstorming" on very important topics of modern Humanity. I think that such open world competitions directed on search of new ideas, it is necessary to carry out in all directions of Knowledge. The subject of this contest peculiar and comprehensive. She forces to think not only about science development, but raises comprehensive questions of the human being. The science is a part of culture and information era, information revolution presses for reorganizations of the system of science, its openness to society. Information technologies gradually, step by step open society, the power, the Person. Saving life and Humanity on Earth is the general task which for the first time in the history rose before modern generation and she demands from all the deepest concentration of mind and spirit. So - in the way for a new generation going ahead ...

Vladimir,

I enjoyed reading your essay.

Your linking "converting power of the mind" and "the meaning for a genuine humanity" are right on.

I also like your list of what a "minimum program must include" but this list does not include any focus on empowering individual people that are really not an integral part of an institution, government, global body or even a for-profit or non-profit? Any reason to ignore the resourcefulness and imagination of the many individuals that make a difference on their own initiative?

Dear Stephen,

I thank you for your deep detailed commentary and analysis of my essays.

Indeed, in order to more reliably steer the future of Humanity, it is necessary to analyze more deeply the past of Humanity, all the way of its formation. An example of this in-depth analysis is all the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. The mystery of consciousness and all the tortuous path of its formation should disclose, together philosophers, paleoanthropologists, physicists, mathematicians, psychologists, sociologists, historians and theologians. Need the deep analysis and synthesis of knowledge gained about the past way of our ancestors. Need a new interpretation of that knowledge to the phenomenon of information and its "place" in the scientific world picture. Need deeper semantic interpretation of the "arrow of time", "entropy" (Greek - turn, turning), "bifurcation point", "state", " emergence". Especially important is the development of ideas Bergson presented in his book "Matter and Memory." In the synthesis of all knowledge about a Person's past is important not to fall into physicalism and psychology. Here mathematics with its high levels of abstraction is a great helper. Especially important to understand the deeper phenomena "egoism" - "altruism", "openness" - "closed". The information revolution requires deeper knowledge and the emergence of democracy in human society, all of its underlying forms and directions of development. Obviously, a comprehensive work of scientists "Humanity and Democracy", published in the official languages of the United Nations and a large circulation in the public domain on the Internet. Thank God, today the Internet and new information technologies provide new opportunities for Humanity more reliable steer spaceship named "Earth".

Thank you very much for the links.

I wish you good luck!

Dear Vladimir R,

Maybe, you will at least enjoy the reference to Coxeter in my essay. On the other hand, I admit having problems with your somewhat poetic style and thinking. Moreover, your text breathes Russian grammar even in English. So it is demanding to an old German like me who must switch between both foreign to me languages.

Nonetheless, I see us allies and quite different from those who omit either foundational questions or practical politics in their attempt to answer the question put in the contest.

May I hope for some comments or for answers to the question or comments I put e.g. to Kadin, St Pierre, Klingman, Shirazi, Gibbs, Khali, Singh, gaisin, Schlafly, Hossenfelder, Aßelmeyer, and Ashworth?

Regards,

Many thanks for reading my difficult essay and your kind comment. If it is possible, write, please, some offers from my essay which aren't clear or have gross grammatical blunders. My address ideabank@yandex .ru

As for the question "control population levels in the future", I don't consider that it is a big problem. The developed countries could stabilize birth rate level through development and education. Such way it is necessary to move purposefully safely to the future. Especially important is the modern system of education and training in schools , which should prepare the creators rather than "experts ." More serious risks for Humanity are wars on self-destruction, asteroid danger, supervolcanoes, science without control from society ("closed science").

Dear Vladimir

I have resounded to your useful comments on my essay. I have now read your essay and many of the associated comments. It provides insight into recognition of the limitations of science and mathematics by profound thinkers. Many on this forum have gained further understanding from your essay of nature of the human decision making process.

I am a realist so I focus on what has happened. Humans have used the tools they devised to use some of Gaia's natural resources to construct and operate a gigantic inanimate organism (Tityas) consisting of cities, roads, ports etc. This ravishing cannot continue. Physical principles (not widely recognized by even scientists) ensure that the operation of Tityas is unsustainable.

Humanity needs to steer Tityas as much as that may be feasible. That requires a degree of consensus in the vast population. A few learned people pointing the direction will not suffice. A Earth's Lodgers' Activity Management (ELAM) movement needs to be promoted as a means of building up the momentum of society's steering the future.

I thank you for your comments and rating of my essay and for the insight I have gained from reading your essay and the associated illuminating comments.

Dear Andrej,

Thank you for your insightful comments and clear position. I fully agree with you: «The tool of the universal truth is sharp, precise, irrefutable and universal».

In my essay, I was just trying to understand and draw a path of Humanity in terms of "consciousness" and its evolution. That is the way I treated the genus Homo in the spirit of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. I understand the dangers of a "closed society", "closed power", "closed science" and any enclosed structures for individuality and freedom in the Information age. I hope that the new Generation will be able to overcome the "closeness" of power and science as a systemic problem for Humanity and its future. As for the "Geometry", I saw them in terms of addressing the foundation of Mathematics, which I think is the main problem for the basic science of the XXI century. A broad competition of ideas in science and society. Already clear that the time has come " Democracy 3.0 ".

I share your opinion that our forefathers have deliberately left us “sings” for us, which can lead us to the right conclusion of LifeWorld in the Universe model.

The philosophical long term overview of how humanity emerged into today is quite interesting, and is an important introduction to final recommendations of a science-based governance model, which is quite similar to my proposal in Our Journey to the next Paradigm. Perhaps our common engineering background leads to this sort of recommendation.

Dear Orenda,

Thank you very much for your insightful comment very important to me, for your appreciation of my ideas. Many thanks for a very important and interesting link from the book "La vida, el tiempo y la muerte" of Fanny Blanck-Cerejido and Marcelino Cerejido. I completely agree with authors of the book.

I agree with deep idea in these words: «From Black Sky Thinking view the first “mathematical act” and it continuous to be: the family. When we need to think in another human being, in its well-being there is transcendence. Wherever the human consciousness is focused in transcendence the tools to make it real will come to them. We are a group of atoms interacting under the rule of different systems, this systems grow in complexity when they may become adaptive to other group of systems (another human being).»

Therefore, I believe, broader introduction in fundamental science of idea of N. Bourbaki about "structure mère" ("generating") and as development of this idea on all reality - "absolute generating structure" ("general framework structure") is extremely important. Creation of unique model of the Universum filled with limit meanings of the "LifeWorld" is a problem of the open fundamental science for more reliable steering the Future.

I also hope for continuation of very interesting dialogue after the contest FQXi.

I and my daughter Victoria we thank you for deep and encouraging words!

Dear Vladimir,

It is a nice pleasure to re-meet you her in FQXi. I have just read your interesting and peculiar Essay. Here are my comments/questions:

1) It is quite interesting that you started your quest of answers to the questions about Humanity past and future by incidentally reading an American magazine. This looks a sort of destiny.

2) The book by Ilya Prigozhin that you cite is fantastic. It shows how two great themes of classic science like order and chaos, which look to do not be conciliated, can be instead reconciled through a new intriguing synthesis.

3) Einstein finalized E. Husserl's idea of the nature as a mathematical Universe. From "The Arithmetization of Geometry" to "The Geometrization of Physics".

4) I like your idea of a "thermodynamics of mind" when you deals with a wave process of "mental temperature increase".

5) The statement that "The new integrative paradigm of knowledge will generate new Universe eidos-Eidos of the Self-Aware Universe" is consistent with anthropic principle.

6) You correctly emphasize nuclear weapon among technological risks. Is there any room for nuclear energy (within a pacific framework) in the New Renaissance-Enlightenment Global Era?

7) I strongly endorse the promotion of idea of Open Science.

You wrote an intriguing Essay. I will give you an high score accordingly.

I wish you best luck in the Contest.

Dear Christian,

Thank you for your deep and kind comment. With regard to nuclear power, as an energy engineer and economist, I believe that we need to develop competition in research («Open Science») to overcome the faster all the dangers of nuclear energy. We must move to widely distributed power generation. It is possible that with the development of information technology and a small power engineering "small village" wins "big city". But the main thing - is to overcome all the factors that divide Humanity. Therefore, Science should go ahead and always be open to Humanity. This Contest - a good step.

Dear Vladimir,

I think you are so right that we lost our sense of the reality behind our arithmetic representations of nature: ""The Arithmetization of Geometry" led to destruction of its sense", and this "sense foundations crisis" has strengthened the "opposition of Homo sapiens sapiens and Nature" and has also led to the "deep essential crisis of fundamental science bases". As you know, the reality behind our representations of nature is also a concern of my essay.

As you say, modern humanity faces existential risks which we must work to overcome. But you look forward to a better future, an Omega Point - a maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which the universe is evolving. To do this we have to "stop and hear the voice of Earth" (and I love the idea of an "International Mother Earth Day").

Also, the youtube references were inspiring, and I believe we all need inspiration!

Unified picture of the world, the new Eidos Universe for physicists and poets give Humanity a chance to steer the future more confidently. As people of the Earth to find mutual understanding? Problems grow continuously. There is hope for a new "Generation Skype», new ideas, new public structures. It's great that there are more people in the world who do not live only for today, but think in the decades ahead, think about the grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

It's a vast range of ideas towards an Open society peopled by free-thinking mankind. You quote Kofi Annan:"… we do not have such organizations which are necessary to us to give the answer to global challenges of this century. It is vital that we got out of this deadlock."

I wonder however that after mankind creates a POWERFUL enough institution then it is faced with the possible abuse of power. In the alternative, mankind finds itself caught in the rut of POWERLESS institutions.

Your idea of the system «Futurocentric Education» excellent. Thank you for supporting the idea of re-localizing of the UN. We need a new look at all the activities of the UN. This requirement determines the Information revolution that Humanity is experiencing and the realization of many people in the world all existential risks to Humanity.

Dear Vladimir,

I find your proposals quite creative. I think Protogeometer is the ultimate creative mind, "geometricizing" as the Pythagoreans and Platonists intuited as a sort of world soul or Logos that is both spirit and total intellect. Your interdisciplinary paper shows your level of education in "the classics" of old, not just modern physics.

It's refreshing that you praise and reference Husserl so much, since that phenomenologist has been mostly forgotten in the world of Anglo-American, (inferior IMHO) "analytic" philosophy. Interesting, that my intellectual Russian/Baltic Facebook friends also like Husserl, and Hanna Arendt, etc and classical thinkers (BTW Plotinus is a favorite of mine.)

Also, I like that you wrote it as a sort of allegorical romance in most parts, not a dry academic screed, as well as the human-interest touch of personal experiences. If I can make constructive criticism: the organizing of the sentence structure can be hard to follow, and there is some residual Russian grammatical structure (which I know is hard for such native speakers to pivot over to English.)

My own essay deals with fundamental issues of mind and reality, including the nature of will. I hope you and other readers find it compelling. It seems to jump around, but there is method there.

Dear Neil,

Many thanks for your kind and insightful comments. Yes, indeed, the "language of geometric representations" I tried to build a model of "self-aware of the Universe" (My essays FQXi 2012-2013). I believe that this language makes it possible to carry over a deep synthesis of knowledge, to see the deep ontology and dialectics of Nature, dialectic "coincidence of opposites". One of the central ideas of the conception - "vector consciousness", which together with the concepts of the «Logos and «Topos gives an opportunity to "squeeze" the sense of the "LifeWorld" in limiting Eidos - knowledge base. Philosophy of Husserl, in particular his ideas in "The Origin of Geometry" helps find the right way to the base of Knowledge, primordial senses of "LifeWorld" and their "geometrize" as a symbol (eidos). So my way "geometrization" of knowledge: Heraclitus- Plato-Aristotle- Plotinus-Descartes-Cusa-Spinoza-Kant- Hegel-Husserl-Heidegger-Teilhard de Chardin-Losev. I fully agree with Alexander Zenkin: «The truth should be drawn with the help of the cognitive computer visualization technology and should be presented to" an unlimited circle "of spectators in the form of color-musical cognitive images of its immanent essence.» (Alexander Zenkin «Scientific Counter-Revolution in Mathematics»).

I am very happy, Neil, that you have a very deep philosophical view. I am sure that without profound Philosophy can not be successfully steer the Future. I apologize for the mistakes in the English translation. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to find a professional translator philosophical text. I'm starting to read your essay today.
