• Yoga
    I had to have some reason for Vayu to turn up in person to speak with Sherlock about Eustace so I had Eustace be an advanced practitioner of a form of yoga – which had me looking into different forms of yoga. I always knew there were more than one but wanted to look into which were the first and classical yogas before all these new variations. I settled on Raja yoga for Eustace. The
  • Evolution of Mathematical Awareness
    Our brains inherent ability to find and utilize mathematical patterns provides a strong evolutionary advantage. On a more general level, understanding geometric relationships helps organisms navigate their environment, predict movements, and solve problems related to survival and reproduction. Natural selection would follow the same principles and favour brains that could grasp these underlying structures. It is transparently obvious that the same rules that shape the enviroment on a biological and physical level also guided and
  • Intelligence as an Emergent Property 2
    We can only consider the possibility of biological neural structures as an emergent property based on what we currently know. Perhaps there are underlying forces or laws we are not aware of. Like for example, the discovery of quarks, the Higgs field and dark matter and dark energy. Neural structures may be an emergent property of unknown laws. Our current understanding of biology might not be the whole picture. The discovery of fundamental particles like
  • Consciousness, Entropy and Negentropy
    The tendency for order to arise in all aspects of biological and material existence (Terran and cosmological) that lead to possible life and intelligence might be a potential indication of a fundamental property Just as there is a fundamental law of Entropy, that, at the other end, there is a complimentary and opposite law of Negentropy that has emotions and/or consciousness as one of its emergent consequences? In nature, there may be a cyclical balance
  • The Mechanics of Being
    First, there is a mountain,Then there is no mountain.Then there is. Julanans have bodies that quickly evolve and adapt to survive in the different environments and conditions where life has evolved. Their bodies adapt to utilise changes in air composition, solar radiation, and edible organic plants.As a result of experiencing life through a broader spectrum of senses, their understanding of what makes them who they are is not restricted to one bodily form. This, in
  • The Field of Consciousness
    The “Field of Consciousness.” extends beyond the boundaries of conventional physical fields, such as electromagnetic or gravitational fields, and is the source of subjectivity and conscious experience in living beings. Nature of the Field:The Field of Consciousness is an all-pervading, subtle, and fundamental medium that permeates the fabric of reality. It is a non-material, intangible entity that interacts with and influences other fields, both physical and metaphysical, giving rise to the rich tapestry of subjective
