When working with private physics, the operators used are metaphorical and implicit, not explicit. Qualia is LIKE the “mass” of privacy. The will to will is like the “Energy” of privacy, and realism is like the “c²”. In my understanding, the notion that c is the speed of light is really a legacy understanding – a pre-Relativity convention within Relativity. It makes more sense to me now that light just happens to be the fastest quality of sense that we have access to. The true nature of c is as the speed of sense, or experience itself. It is not a speed, but the absolute limit of velocity. The still-here-ness of the universe..
[image: image] From an absolute view, quantified properties like mass, energy, and spacetime can be considered to be like reality but the only *true *reality is what *experience is like*. All conditions of the public universe are contingent upon an aesthetic palette, otherwise it would be implausible that any such palette could exist. Private physics and public physics provide two different senses or fantasy, and two different senses of reality. Human experience is fantastically rich in an aesthetic sense and fundamentally real because it is the source of our participation in the universe. Our experience of the non-human universe is fantastic in the sense of its overwhelming magnitude and complexity, Its reality is persistent and reliable. If we are serious about our science, we should consider that being overwhelmed by grandeur is a human experience which reflects the disparity in physical scale between us and the larger exteriority. The Public universe by itself would have no such feeling of grandeur, but what we feel about the inaccessible vastness of the cosmos is equaled by the vast inaccessibility of feeling by public physics. What I'm saying is that our estimation of the grandeur of our own experience is impaired by our being impressed by the otherness of the public exterior. From an objective standard, there is nothing less incredible about a sensation or thought than all of the rest of the universe combined. Indeed, without some experience in which the universe can matter, there is no relevance to existence in the first place - no difference between existence and non. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
