A speculation on the origin of spacetime amd matter out of cosmic mind

No doubt this speculation is not original, but I am unaware of the proper reference.

According to Leibniz's idealism, there are two basic interpenetrating states of the universe, matter and mind. Matter is physical and so is in spacetime,
while mind is outside of spacetime and is nonphysical.

One might say that matter (the objective state) is the physical transformation
of mind (the subjective state)

That can make sense.



Inversely then mind is the mental representation
(or inverse transformation) of matter.

That cannot make sense.






In the terms of physics, similarly, vacuum space (which I now tentatively
propose is Cosmic Mind)

Vacuum space is physical. The mind is non-physical (as you say yourself). So this will not work.




spontaneously but very temporaily emits and
reabsorbs energetic particles (in the form of quanta) in a phenomenon
called the "vacuum fluctuation" :
 - Roger Clough
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_fluctuation :

"A quantum fluctuation is the temporary appearance of energetic particles
out of empty space, as allowed by the Uncertainty Principle."

At the same time, presumably the space vacuum  is independent of
spacetime, or one might say that spacetime, the realm of quanta and
particles, appear out of the space vacuum. A massive universal transformation
of this type might then be the Big Bang.

The tibetan call this material spiritualism. They describe this as a way to physicalize the spiritual, and argue convincingly that it is mistaken. It is of the same type as saying that bread is Jesus.

But yes, the big bang might come from a quantum fluctuation, but this does not explain neither the quantum nor consciousness, nor why there is a universe, etc. It is a possible historical events, but it explains nothing.
Leibniz go farer, imo, and Plato even more.

Bruno



The space vacuum would then correspond in Leibniz's metaphysics
to the realm of monads.
