Essay Abstract

Given the broad scope to which a decision making process can be applied... e.g. "Should I eat this apple?", "Do black holes emit "stuff"?" ... it is necessary to establish a scale at which the decision differential is to be processed. In that FQXi is a Fundamental Question Forum, and analysis from principle to general forces establishment of an absolute evaluation criteria, I herein scale the decision differential in terms of a theoretical minimum/indivisible unit of spatially defined Energy (QE) witch can experience a Space-Time differential, and one must make a clear distinction between Quanta of Energy (QE), as minimum/indivisible units of spatially defined Energy, and Phenomenal Energy (PHE) as the quantification, in terms of observable measurement... e.g. heat in degrees... of the observed event of a QE's experience. In that a temporal interval is implicit in an entities experience of a spatial differential... i.e. a dynamic process... I utilize a logic construct that facilitates pulsed sequential evaluation. To encourage relevant discussion, I solicit my reader for an assessment of my application of herein modeled Absolute Intelligence, to a logic evaluation criteria for my essay.

Dear Sue Lingo,

Your essay is very logical. For example your words.........We will herein assume that an addressable spatial occupancy map, within which to query the entities experience, is applicable to our model of Absolute Intelligence.

In that we are herein dealing with fundamental/Absolute Intelligence...i.e. no operation assignments can be predetermined by a system external agent... a continuously emerging unit of uniform minimum/indivisible spatial addresses (QI), that formats a 3D network, for resolve of directionally unbiased Single Point source emission and subsequent distribution of QE, dictates the spatial suantization geometry within which to query an individual entities experience, and/or entire network status........................ are very true.

Have a look at slightly different version given by my Dynamic Universe Model like...

In my opinion this inner Consciousness is a constant guidance force which guides all aspects of life..

for particles like electron, this may the charge. For astronomical bodies this the Universal Gravitational Force acting on that body at that instant of time and space (UGF). This UGF varies with time and space and configuration of Universe around it at that instant.

Hope you can spend a little time on my essay (" https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3416 ") in this contest to see how the above definitions in more detail.

I hope to have lively discussion with you on your thinking.

Best wishes for your essay!!!

Hi Sue.

Lovely essay. Original but bang on topic and an interesting 'computing' view. It's just so universally true and sadly influential that "Mental concepts can constrain perception".

I see you only have a 'trolling' score. Mine will help it's recovery.

Very best

Peter

Sue,

Sorry I didn't comment on the specific central question your perceptive and well explained analysis posed. Having read my essay you should understand the answer & detailed explanation I give to your comment there.

Very Best

Dear Sue. I liked your essay and I will comment on each of the statements in your summary based on the concepts of the model presented in my essay.. Mental models do constrain perception and new conceptual models predate major shifts in perception and understanding. Mental models are critical factors in one’s ability to function in one’s reality- can also be turned around to - functioning in...

Hello Sue Lingo,

Thanks for you comment on my thread. I’ll try to relate our two essays.

I enjoyed your essay immensely. I not sure whether the computer-naive will appreciate your poetic analysis [think GW in your last essay] but I am computer competent and I loved it. I almost saw a Data General 1600 or Hewlett-Packard 2100 in front of me as you booted the hardware and the system...

Hi , you are welcome, I have not made this Contest, I develop since many years here and improve it my theory of spherisation, an optimisation evolution of the universal spheres of future sphere with quantum 3D coded spheres and cosmological spheres, I consider coded particles to explain our geometries, topologies, matters and properties, I don t consider the fields to explain these geonetrisations, you can see the general ideas and developments on blogs and on the essays where I have answered, I like that the people utilise the spheres, I am happy for my general theory, fortunally people cannot plagiate it, it is coded particles and the generaliry is the spherisation , regards

Dear Sue,

I find this interesting to read, thank you. Please see my essay, which is in your area, and which is here. I hope there's time for you to see it - it uses a rational conceptual approach, involving analysis of the conceptual clues in trying to interpret quantum mechanics, before going to any of the mathematical aspects of the question.

The essay's main point is that there must be missing concepts. This is suggested by the lack of consensus, as well as by several aspects of the physics. So rational methods are put forward to search for these 'missing pieces of the puzzle', and it is pointed out that assuming we have all the pieces in front of us has held physics back many times in the past.

Best wishes, JK
