The hard problem of everything The hard problem of everything is a unification of the two singularly hard problems that our existence poses: the hard problem of consciousness (how does subjective experience arise) and the hard problem of something (why is there something rather than nothing) which includes the problem of an infinite regress of mechanism and an infinite regress of causation. It seems that both of these problems seem to cause science some difficulty and are deemed unscientific and philosophical in nature.
The crucial (mad?) step I have taken in my reasoning is to assume that since consciousness and the universe pose similarly difficult questions they are similar in nature, examples of the same phenomena. Since they are similar phenomena, properties of one can perhaps be deduced from properties of the other. The conscious self is a singularity (I take this from the universe) which results from an infinite feedback loop, therefore the universal singularity is also the result of an infinite feedback loop. Now I speculate on the nature of the universal feedback loop, it is my superstition that there is a unity underlying all things which is what brought me to propose a unified hard problem in the first place. I guess that the universal feedback loop is an inevitable oscillation between positive infinity and positive negativity, which are intrinsic in the fabric of reality, which stabilised at the zero-point into the big bang singularity, this explains how everything came inevitably to be at a single point. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
