Hi Richard Ruquist 

We live in mjuch different worlds, so it's hard to discuss things with you.

1) Spacetime itself is not physical.

2) Spacetime is not a slice of quantum mind (whatever that is).

etc. as I frequently but ineffectively try to correct.

Dear Roger,

Only 4d spacetime, matter and energy are physical. Everything else is
non-physical and therefore part of the mind. This includes comp up
thru quantum mechanics. Only 4 dimensions for example of the 11d
universe are physical.

The 4d-block mindspace (more accurate terminology) contains a
reflection of 3d physical space as a slice of the 4d quantum mind. The
4th space dimension of the quantum mind is timelike in the sense that
it contains the flux on which the arithmetic computations of all
future possibilities are written, as well as which ones became
physical.

In MWI they all become physical- all possibilities become physical-
which makes the 4d-block mindspace deterministic and thereby
eliminates the need for time and consciousness. In comp, 1-p
reintroduces time and consciousness. In string theory, time is a given
physical dimension but otherwise rather mysterious. I suggest that
whoever designed this mind/body duality put time in explicitly to
allow for consciousness from the beginning rather than wait for it to
evolve.

You may call the designer, god. And I think it's a useful catchall
word. But we should be careful not to do to theology what we do to
global warming- that is to give it human characteristics.

I come from the perspective of having practiced every major religion
in the world. In fact I practice the major elements of all of them on
a daily basis, what I call yanniruism. I started with protestant
christianity, then catholic christianity, then years of atheism, then
a decade of judaism, and finally atheistic buddhism, sufism and
atheistic hinduism. BTW reform judaism turned out to be basically
atheistic.

Regarding who the designer is, the best answer I know of comes from
sufism. Their ultimate god is known by a sound, "hu", and the
objective of all sufi practices seems to be to get to hear that sound.
It is what the blood rushing thru your brain sounds like. In
yanniruism, Hu is the platonic source of mathematics from which form
derives. I think there is also a sound for the father god and the son
god, respectively "Ho" and "Ha". I get this from the Hindu mantra for
the 3rd eye chakra, om na ma ye ho va, and from the hindu mantra for
the heart chakra, om na ma ya weh ha. I associate the Ha god with the
universe and the Ho god with the 4d block mindspace of the Metaverse.
Please consider this paragraph as my bio.

The Metaverse is perhaps an infinite 3D-space that includes the
3D-spaces of all existing universes. Each universe contains a cubic
lattice of Calabi-Yau compact-manifold particles, a 3D-subspace that I
consider to be the comp machine of the universe. It regulates all
physical particle interactions based on inherent laws and constants
and gives us a universal consciousness based on its incompleteness.

But where do the laws and constants come from? A higher-order source
of comp is required. Hence the function of the Metaverse.

Here it is useful to introduce the total number of possible bits of
information thought to be available in a holographic universe, 10^120,
the so-called Lloyd limit. I accept Martin Rees suggestion that when a
physical process requires more bits than this number,
the process may become emergent, like consciousness is emergent due to
incompleteness.

Processes in the universe are I think incomplete because of the Lloyd
limit of information. It's a function of the surface area of the
universe. The 10^120 is based on the observable universe (radius 46
BLY) but the actual holographic universe could be much larger. Penrose
suggests an upper limit of 10^122 bits. I suggest that this is not
enough for comp to develop physical laws, constants and matter.

For that I think we need the Metaverse which even if finite has a
superabundance of bits for computation purposes. Therefore I conclude
that the laws and constants of physics are comp derived
in the Metaverse and written on the 4D-block mindspace of the
Metaverse. Indeed for comp to control how each universe inflates by
way of flux compactification, there must be a source of comp outside
the universe.

Using the old adage that what's up is down, but also from the
viewpoint of Metaverse/universe compatibility, I conjecture that the
Metaverse also contains a 4D-spacetime, separate from the universe, at
least outside of the universe, plus a 3D-subspace containing most
likely a cubic lattice of Calabi-Yau compact-manifold particles, the
ultimate comp machine.

However, because of the size and nearly infinite completeness of
Meta-comp, there is some question if it could be consciousness. Yet it
can predict the consciousness that exists in each universe. So in some
sense it, the quantum mind, knows about consciousness but may not
itself be capable of consciousness- quantum deism..

I suspect that the Meta-comp machine joins with the uni-comp machine
within each universe, or at least they act in concert,
perhaps resulting in a subspace full of 12d-particles that could
control both physical and psychological worlds. A fellow on the
Mind/brain list has such a theory but without my metaphysical
trimmings.

I want to talk about the implication of a hologaphic universe on the
speed of comp processing and in turn on quantum interpetations,
but I think enough said for now. I wonder if any will even read this
far. Thanks for the opportunity and stimulus to present this system
analysis. I really appreciate being on this list.

Richard
