Constructor Theory

Published on Apr 4, 2015 An introduction to Constructor Theory presented by David Deutsch and Chiara Marletto, introduced by Simon Benjamin. http://constructortheory.org Constructor Theory is a new approach to formulating fundamental laws in physics. Instead of describing the world in terms of trajectories, initial conditions and dynamical laws, in constructor theory laws are about which… Read More

Are there alternatives to our present theories of physical reality? by Peter Rowlands

Our notions of what is physically ‘real’ have long been based on the idea that the real is what is immediately apprehended, that is the local or observable, the physically tangible, though there has always been an alternative philosophical notion that the ‘real’ is some kind of ontological structure beyond immediate apprehension, and so inaccessible through physics. However, quantum mechanics, with its intrinsic nonlocal correlations, has seemingly left us with a dilemma by showing that fundamental physical theories cannot be both real and local. Reality cannot be reconstructed as a deterministic projection from physical observations. Many people think that the problem lies with quantum mechanics, but, in fact, it is more likely to be a result of unrealistic expectations. We have assumed that fundamental physics ought to be compatible with normal (macroscopic) experience. If, however, we go beyond our current high-level physical theories to the basic elements from which they are constructed, we see that a pattern emerges that gives us a very different and much more coherent understanding of what is meant by physical ‘reality’.

The Ontological Mathematical Basis of the Infinite Felt Side of Being Within

In order to appreciate better our post-materialist cosmos, given the quantum field theory discoveries of Plank, Bohm and Laszlo, we would have to incorporate “the infinite (felt side of being) within” into a fully coherent realizable cosmic whole of understanding and meaning. Although we have used mathematical principles and tools to guide our materialist and… Read More

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. on Mindsight, The Emerging Mind, Mindfulness and Neural Integration, and Interpersonal Connection, Self-Awareness and Well-Being

An Introduction to Mindsight by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. Published on Jul 18, 2013 “Mindsight” is a term coined by Dr. Dan Siegel to describe our human capacity to perceive the mind of the self and others. It is a powerful lens through which we can understand our inner lives with more clarity, integrate the… Read More

Life Capitalism – One Life-Science to Rule Them All

In order to transition from our present death economy and birth a new life economy, we need to bring new life-tools to our toolkit of investigations and experimentation. Given the recent realisation that our present economic science, in its present incarnation can be described as a form of “alchemy,” we have now to ask what… Read More

In Communion with a Fully Life-Coherent Universe

https://www.heartmath.org/tag/coherence/ In the two previous posts, Two major blindspots in our view of the world revealed!, and The life-coherence principle: the forsaken invisible hand, I endeavoured to show that our universe is fractally self-organised and quantum coherent from the subatomic to the galactic scales.  What is causing this new-found reawakening is an appreciation of the fact that our conventional mainstream views… Read More
