Reality 101

THOMAS CAMPBELL: MY BIG TOE
September 2011

  • We are not living in an objective reality.
  • Don't believe - practice open minded skepticism.
  • Growing up means becoming love.
  • Double slit experiment: if there is no information in this reality about a particle then the particle will be a probability distribution.
  • The core of our reality is information. Consciousness is information and information is nonphysical and subjective.
  • Information system have entrophy, and large complex self-changing information systems evolve by lowering their entrophy.
  • Consciousness is a self aware, self-modifying system evolving toward lower entropy states.
  • Free will chooses from a set decision space.
  • Love is the nature of low entrophy system. Fear does not lead to lower entrophy.
  • Consciousness needs input, memory, processing, self modifying.
  • We are part of a larger system - when we lower our entrophy the larger system benefits too as part of its evolution.
  • The purpose of life is to lower your entrophy, increase the quality of your consciousness.
  • We can consider ourselves to be information in a database. Past and future probabilities are stored there. The present is where the action takes place.
  • When you look at an aura you are making a request from the database, and can receive the data in any format you specify.
  • The nature of virtual reality has to fit the rules, be historically consistent. Our virtual reality is many orders of complexity more, and has evolved.
  • Virtual reality only needs to render effects, not everything.
  • The system is designed to facilitate its own evolution by providing a reality where experience and feedback facilitates your evolution.
  • The system is designed to help - evidenced by things such as synchronicity.
  • Weak history gives the system fewer constraints.
  • Quantum mechanics seems to apply to tiny things because small things show more uncertainty. But actually the probablities applies to everything.
  • Backwards causality - can bias results within probability before results are looked at. Not really backwards causality, but appears to be.
