Defining particles and riding waves to arrive at…

The grooves that define us

Thanks to our intuitive assembly of various concepts emanating from physics and quantum physics, from the natural world and from the ideations that have emerged alongside our own evolution — from biological assumptions and religious inclinations — we’ve come to appreciate everything as consisting within a certain framework: a divine…

Beware: This is a McKenna-heavy post

“Intuition is a feeling into things that comes to answers and leaves no trail.” - Terence McKenna

“In the felt domain of experience called living, intuition is how most of us, even the most self-defined as non-intuitional, are operating. Intuition is a kind of field processing of the foreground and the background of experience. …

Floating atop the currents of coherent possibility. Again.

“The only pure way to have a wave is for it to be its own medium. Waves propagate outwards, and they can be large or small. That’s what waves do.” — Carver Mead

Buoyant Beginnings

Our main disadvantage in this world, especially when it comes to trying to understand the strange behaviors…

And why you have to unsee it to believe it

We ought to leg go of this annoyingly limiting, empirically-grounded idea that whatever we see doesn’t exist.

While we acknowledge that we only see a sliver of world that’s actually around us, we often attribute this to contexts beyond our understanding — say, cosmology or quantum physics. …

What’s Going On?

The mysteries of our existence and the enigmas of our reality are the challenge of our times. We may never know the full truth.

From the grainy black and white question marks that hover about events like Roswell to the four-eyed physical perplexities of quantum physics, there’s a common denominator scratched onto all the walls of our minds whereby these mysteries relentlessly bounce around.

That common denominator is this: we may have a lot…

We should think of it less as technology becoming more sentient and more as ourselves becoming less autonomous.

In all of our obsessive discussions, predictions and anticipations of artificial intelligence and its inevitable point of singularity upon our horizon, we’re failing to properly account for one very important element in…

On our inevitable collision course with the true nature of our potential

“A dynamic interplay in which particles are created and destroyed without end in a continual variation of energy patterns… The whole universe is thus engaged in endless motion and activity; in a continual cosmic dance of energy” — Fritjof Capra

Can an analogy be drawn between human nature and particle…

On the cadence of change and the frivolous need to construct a narrative of time

There’s one crucial phrase to remember throughout this piece: change turns future to past.

Change Turns Future To Past

As change turns future to past we’re stuck in the middle of the process trying to grasp at it however possible.

We’re an integral part of the process, even though we don’t need to be; we…

Everything is within everything, except for our appreciation of this idea

Everything exists within everything else.

This is the kind of statement that can be so densely packed with laborious truth or so hollowed out with defective logic that we tend to simply circumvent its gritty perplexity whenever we confront it.

Biologists may understand this idea through looking at how organisms…

Every now and again, we unwillingly stumble into the realization that something, if not everything, is out of our control.

And as dreadful as this realization may typically feel, it’s usually accompanied by a resonating sense of peace — whether that peace is sourced from a blissful resignation of circumstance…
