The physical and mental phenomena is unified in a coherent world view

Space and time, as two of the most important physical quantities, are present in some form in basically every equation ever written about dynamical systems. In the early twentieth century Einstein's General relativity combined these fundamental fields into one hypothetical construct, spacetime, which is described by monstrous second degree differential equations that could not be solved up to the present day. Although spacetime became a kind of fixture in physics, the unification of space and time suffers from numerous defaults. Space shortens just only along one coordinate, but time slows evenly within affected regions. The microdimensions, where time resides are multidimensional, adding up to a dozen dimensions. Therefore space and time form the universe's two orthogonally conjoined energy fields, where space happens to be three dimensional, whereas the microdimensions are multi-dimensional.

The two interconnected energies, space and time allow us to consider a cosmological evolution, driven by the universe’s accelerating expansion. In string theory, elementary matter particles are just energy vibrations occurring within a microdimensional space. Their interaction with space changes the spatial curvature. Increasing field curvature imposes information content on the horizon, while decreasing field curvature reduces information content. This information content is registered as the age of material systems. Information content of our galactic neighborhood is shown as being over ten billion years old. Due to the material complexity evolution requires, only matter with such enhanced age can produce life.

According to string theory, energy vibrations become visible matter, but the material brain gives rise to the highly autonomous, self-regulating, and incomprehensible energy structure of the mind. The material brain give rise to an independent, self-governing energy structure analogue to material matter particles. Highly structured mental frequencies betray nonlinear complexity about the energy unit, which is the mind. This is the reason that research that examines automatic mental operation, independent from conscious awareness, has exploded in recent years. Free will has been called into question. The traditional idea of intellect is insufficient when is comes to explaining personal, professional, and economic success. Social and emotional intelligence is an increasingly recognized factor in achievement. In scientific literature, from psychology to neurology, the relationship between emotion and cognition is considered anew. Like elementary particles, where the energy distribution is hidden until interaction, the vast majority of mental operation is unknown, not only from others, but even from self-awareness. Even though simple rules lead to complex behavior (Wolfram, 2002); the mind has trouble comprehending complexity and itself. The unintuitive and multifarious nature of mental operation has been pointed out by philosophers and sages over millennia of human civilization. Indeed, the inner life of the mind defies comprehension, and the laws of quantum mechanics turn up repeatedly in mental phenomena. Remarkably, the counter-intuitive operational principles of elementary particle behavior appear to describe mental operation. Unintuitive and even bizarre recent studies in the field of neurology, sociology, and psychology show mental operation in this new light. Considering the mind as an elementary particle can explain numerous, specific mental phenomena. Understanding the operation of the mind permits us to map out a congruent life; goals and positive inspirations can be efficiently reached. Emotional stability, optimism is indispensable quality of intellectual excellence. The accumulation of negativity however increases temporal field strength, constricts time (appropriately called stress), which slows, inhibits mental progress. Read more...

The importance of practicing happiness

Happiness is expressed in an internationally understood language, elation, laughter or jumping for joy. because it is implicated with well-being, health and even longevity (the famous Minnesota nun study and others), it has become an important field of study, known as positive psychology. Happiness builds trust and inversely only a comfortable, trusting mind can be happy. So trust underlies and supports happiness. Even laughing is the result of a tense or puzzling situation being resolved being innocent, comprehensible, a relaxing feeling of confidence and trust. However, the quality or strength of trust or the degrees of satisfaction, confidence and joy, can greatly differ. The first, most basic level is money or power. These two are so closely connected; historically they were invariably one and the same. The second level is trust through knowledge, and the third is love. We will examine them in order.

The resulting differences are based on the level of emotional gravity, an emotional analogue of gravity, which is analyzed in detail in earlier posts. Emotional (i.e. temporal) gravity corresponds to the strength of connection to things or people. Small emotional gravity leads to trust, which takes things granted and verification unnecessary. Emotional gravity is generally inversely related to confidence and education level. Lack of trust makes it necessary to accumulate things and form tight connection to family members, which can lead to abusing relationships. Children and young people are more trusting and adapt easily to changes. Emotional gravity increases with age, and changes are stressful for the elderly. Trust increases with more access to 'things,' so trust is a cultural (trust is also increases with democratization), as well as wealth issue. An extensive 2012 study examined happiness as a function of financial means in various countries. Not surprisingly, the study found a positive relationship between income growth and overall satisfaction. However, there is a dark side of wealth, because the satiation 'richness' point is continuously re-positioned. Striving for greater and greater wealth is a tilted viewpoint, which always denies full happiness. A sudden change of financial means, such as winning the lottery generally does not change the mind, therefore the attachment to possessions (the emotional gravity). People who suddenly find themselves awash in money not necessarily become trusting. In fact it is often found that lottery winners are often back to their prior financial state and the happiness of the recipients also returns close to its original level. The reversal of fortune of the prize recipients probably can be explained by the difficulty or mental change.

Completion of a difficult task involves hard, systematic work, very different form lottery winners, where happiness is solely an environmental happens-chance. Hard, systematic work, study lead to positive mental transformation (Csikszentmihaly). Diligent work invariably enhances trust, generosity (less attachment to possessions) and results in long term satisfaction. This mental state in turn leads to decisions, which positively influence the person's social, professional status and health. Consequently it is regularly found that people with higher education level are more trusting and they tend to make better financial and health decisions. In other words, learning leads to long term happiness.

Who does not follow his heart, cripples his soul; love is the most important and greatest source of trust. Those who trust, also can be trusted, which turns love a two way street. This is why we tend to find dedicated people in occupations, which requires love. Love exists in emotional animals, mammals and birds (and even crocodiles). Love will allow a bird to risk her life to protect its progeny. It fortifies the hero's determination to win in difficult undertaking. In children stories and literary classics it is love that transforms, and moves toward a moral upper ground. To love is to trust the beloved. Thus love can be directed toward God, or abstract mathematics. To love is also to trust others, the future, leading to generosity, honesty, and cooperation.

Quantum entanglement is characteristic of the mind

By Thierry Dugnolle

In the material world randomness is always tempered by an underlying determinism. From ocean waves to landscape formations, the combination of predictability with arbitrary elements takes shape as a fractal structure. Surprisingly, the characteristics of fractal structure can also be recognized in the temporal rhythm of mental phenomena. Thus, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that cognitive processes obey the laws of quantum mechanics and the mind forms resonance and interference analogue to material systems. Social unrest was modeled as a coherent energy transmission of a social laser by Andrei Khrennikov

Entanglement is a phenomenon where by making an observation on one part of the system instantaneously affects the state in another part of the system, even if the respective systems are separated by space-like distances. This bizarre instantaneous mutual determination was confirmed recently. Although the wave function of entangled sister particles cannot be decomposed into separate subsystems, the common wave function spreads out over space and leads to quantum entanglement, the instantaneous behavior of the common wave-function. The same phenomenon transpires in emotional animals over conceptual distance, or over time. For example, in word association experiments entanglement activates associative target words simultaneously, allowing concept combinations to be modeled by quantum theory.

Entanglement is more common than we realize. Entanglement forms social power difference between people, and emotional animals. One of the partners is superior, whereas the other is inferior in the relationship, due to a difference in time perception. The dominant member in the entanglement feels the wealth of time, making him more relaxed. His entangled partner feels stressed and a failure. However, their socially uneven relationship can be reversed by new information, even years later. One person can even form entanglement between two temporal events! In the mind nonlocality includes fictions time travel to the past that updates comprehension. The moment of recognition miraculously expands understanding in time, pushing it into the past and the future. In this way, childhood memories turn into adult understanding in the mind of the adult. Analogous to the quantum mechanics particle experiment, a cemented mental reality can be completely overturned by new information. When we discover a secret, our comprehension expands the past, the time of the first experience. This timelessness means that understanding can be influenced from great temporal expanses. Ideas in the hidden corners of the mind can be manipulated by information years or even decades later.

The role of family in the internet age

By Talento Tec  

Bald eagles, which mate for life and raise their young together, are one of very few animal species that have some form of family structure. However the complexity of human mental abilities conjures up behavior and social, as well as family structure that has inter-generational importance; it plays an important role in preserving culture, behavioral patterns and even social stability. In hierarchic societies families were the bastions of safety and security, the means to hold onto power, position and wealth. It was the life insurance policy for the middle class and the poor. The family could be a tool to increase influence in society, and spread political power (kleptocracy). In families not only money, but occupation and titles were handed down. Family could cushion to a great extent the individual from natural and social dangers, hooligans, bandits and local rulers. Since in difficult times only the family provided security, inner conflicts,the family needed to be beyond criticism. Individual problems needed to be well covered and hidden from the outside and nonconforming members became outcasts, who were shunned and disgraced. This irrevocable connection between the individual and the family greatly restricted personal freedom.

In democratic societies the economic role and nepotistic importance of family has gradually decreased. The elderly does not have to rely on the family, because the societal safety net provides pension, health and end of life care on a level unmatched by the family care. Occupations are no longer handed down; instead they are becoming the expression of individual talents and creative mental potential. Instead of relying on nepotism and the connections of the parent, young people often leave not only the home town, but the home country to find their own path.

As connections and inherited finances will play less and less important role in individual success, the institutional role of the family will certainly continue to decline. When family is not a source of financial security or societal position, covering up weaknesses and deficiencies are no longer necessary; the family can open up to become safe islands of nurture and love. The love and caring within the family that flows out into the community lifts up everyone. This is like raising the water level in the bathtub; everyone benefit. When we try to reserve money and influence for descendants, it is like creating walls in the ocean. The energy spent creating demarcations stifles the spirit of those, who inherit. Posh inheritance extinguishes creative energy, the spark of originality and lead to mediocre comfort. A trust in the social environment and democratic future allows some intellectual billionaires, such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and others, to give away their wealth. With the increasing trust in our social world, the social distance will decrease further, and lead to a better society supported by fast paced medical and technological advances. Progress, which lifts everyone, is only limited by our imagination.
