More Crazy Ideas

I just posted this on another thread. I thought it also belonged here: Martin, Strangely enough, I came across the idea of a “meme” just a month ago on the JFC forum. I find it fascinating that there could be an atomic (indivisible) unit of thought! We have long known of the quantum (indivisible) ph...

A Digital Universe?

Martin, Strangely enough, I came across the idea of a “meme” just a month ago on the JFC forum. I find it fascinating that there could be an atomic (indivisible) unit of thought! We have long known of the quantum (indivisible) photon, which is the smallest unit of light. And scientists are now talki...

JC vs. JC

Aww shucks, Clemsy. And I just got done with my Joseph Campbell shrine, complete with a Velvet JC:

Grounded Point of View

Ah, but do we really know what our individual "subjective" viewpoint is? Here’s another little mind game that I’ve been playing during my travels this week. Aside from imagining the stretching and time dilation effects of the Theory of Relativity on my body, I have been thinking of myself as being F...

Schrödinger's Cat

So basically what you're saying, Evinnra, is that, "a watched pot never boils." My wife tells me that all the time. The engineer in me argues, of course, that the classical laws of physics are very clear on this point: the same amount of water, on the same burner, with the same atmospheric condition...

Joseph Campbell's Consciousness

Has anyone ever thought of these JFC Internet forums as an extension of Joe’s consciousness. Everything we write here starts with some idea from his teachings. I would like you to consider that he is in fact not dead, but lives through us. He would probably say that we are identifying with the Chris...

Spin and Spaghetti

Yeah it's cool to see that Nassim is putting spin back into Einstein's equations by using the Coriolis Effect : http://www.theresonanceproject.org/images/graphics/dualtorus.gif Sometimes a problem is so complex that a mathematician has to simplify things in order to come to a conclusion. Taking angu...

I came across this diagram that may be helpful (you can click on it to make it bigger): http://www.friesian.com/images/relig-2.gif Assuming, from Clemsy's definitions, that Metaphysics is a Philosophy, I would like to focus this thread on the bottom lines that include Mathematics, Logic and Science,...

I agree completely, Clemsy about the difference between Metaphysics and Science. I just didn't know that to call the thread. I thought "Metaphysics" would attract the type of people interested in this kind of NEXT LEVEL Science. I'm not sure if Joe ever talked about Metaphysics, but I see it as a mo...

New METAPHYSICS Topic

I would love to explore these ideas further, but they are kind of off topic for this thread. I've taken the liberty of starting a new METAPHYSICS thread where we could dive deep into the realm of quantum thought:

METAPHYSICS

One of our new associates posted something that I think many of us "science geeks" would love to explore: The concept of "Energies" has a wonderful congruency in quantum physics (I am a backseat physicist, as well as storyteller). An energy is a frequency of vibration as it travels along the star te...

The Guitar God

Looks like an Ovation CSD225-BCB, right orpheusmaximo? Very nice mistress! I have a few axes of my own; every guitarist does. Caressing your instrument transcends all, and is as bold as love. It’s KAIROS -- GOD’S TIME . Like Bono said, “salvation in the blues.” Reminds me of Clemsy’s signature: “Jus...
