What is Consciousness!
Fractals was the name first given to this new solution!
--Imagine science and modern mathematics producing a solution to one of life's most difficult, hard to map problems and not knowing it:
I often refer to a " new representation of Being Human and Mind" and fractals is just that: it shows how coherence can be stacked in levels that work as dimensions of consciousness. These levels are constructed as process and procedure, not just a new and better description.
Maps are part of consciousness that result when holomind is layered: a hologram of a hologram. This process allows the separation of living beings into interlocking phase “parts” of the original “whole” coherence. This is the Adam’s rib Yin phase half. Culture and civilization expands as the level of resolution of the phase spaces gets finer: more elements in a larger space. Some of the first results of phase mapping is found in the diversity of human "selves or egos" which maps the entire ecological system of the "animal realm" onto the human psyche as emerged in various cultural maps called "astrologies". Thus the “specialist” and “worker” developed, and new coherent structures develop which no longer resemble a “normal” biological or physical wave coherence of a start and rise, a high, a fall and a low or as commonly referred to “life and death”. The result is discarded phase segments clearly illustrated in recent culture by elders becoming the “aged / old people”. Because of the rapid development of new phase structures the youth become the elders because of their rapid learning skills [and other reasons].
1 Knowing one’s self is mathematically impossible because an overall system cannot span – scan or map itself. Thus we project out self maps onto the environment, and that is especially true for computers. When we developed language we made the content or landscape of consciousness larger than the window to view it! Thus we hide parts of being human from ourselves. This also has a positive aspect: for as with fractal structures, we are able to specialize with “views” from our window. This is the scope of the new coherences of consciousness of Uranus/Neptune.
2 Thus some of the complete holographic mind is not within the window of consciousness: like all the views are the squares on a chess board but one becomes limited in what can be reconstructed to 8 or “X” squares!?
3 The way knowledge is pursued in science is like the stacks in solitaire: they seem to have a limit and don’t allow any other cards played once there is order/sequence/coherence.
Also the cards are a great metaphor for “ego” which is any pile as a subset. The piles like a fractal of Koch snowflake are all at different levels of resolution to start, and at lower resolution that the whole, as holographic pieces! This is also a good graphic for holographic mind at different phase angles of overlayered coherent sources. That is that the Star of David is constructed as phase angles over another coherent source!
The fractal algorithm that controls the phase angles of the pendulum and its fuzzy movements in a orthogonal direction are also defined by the power set of 2 and subsets of the subsets as fractals defined on fractals. Thus I have described the evolution of personalities coming from the power set of 2 to the five. 2 up6 is then the situationality of the higher dimensional person. Another property of self organizing neural nets is that given identical inputs and outputs, different nets organize the solution path differently: they are chaotically structured, no model of their behaviour is "correct" or standard. This has been traditionally stated as "there are as many different ways to truth as there are individuals" Thus the study of knowledge [epistemology] in and by humans that finds the "one right way" for the [global] organization of social, religious especially monotheistic, political, or learning institutions is not based on the biology of the human or any other species. In my model, such efforts are attempts by some individuals to isolate the "One Mind" from its ability to self organize and substitute centralized self control and bivalent "rationality". Since this is impossible all that results is the creation of phase filters that arbitrarily select individuals as competitively more suitable and assign greater value to some individuals among identical biological functioning individuals due to their developmental similarity to the "standard model" which may have been developed in religious context or as emperors or other "hero models". There many metaphors for the "One Mind", one of which is "holographic mind", which can clarify many of the brains properties: functions are distributed, they can be layered by phase angle and frequency, they need a "coherent source" for creating the original structures, and output functions of different sizes produce identical information of the whole at different levels of fuzziness of resolution. In neural nets, two principle structures contribute to the understanding of the kinds of models humans make of their world. They are bi-directional resonance between the "layers", and lateral competition within layers for which "function" will "win" and thus be allowed to learn. The winner then inhibits other functions that are "distant" and reinforces those that are "close". In the first case I can group such behaviours as tradition, worship, trust, love, harmony, synthesis, creation, construction, and cooperation. In the second case I see competition, ethic cleansing, analysis, destruction, oppositional bonding, rebellion, and control. The question is if human models of reality are more a result of the brains function or of the reality "out there". The Buddhists clearly stated that the former is the case, whereas early science embodied this projection in its rules designed to avoid subjectivism and religious dogma, especially in the light that an ethnic group as was formed by scientists produce a connected n.net surface that acts as if it was one subjective individual. Thus "proof" as the test of subjectivism became a filter that eliminated complex fuzzy systems where each "individual" self organized and acted from their unique "model" of reality. Another structure of n.nets is by brain systems: sensation and levels of activation and awareness - alertness as emerging from the base of the brain as often referred to as reptilian. Emotion as emerging from the social- mammal mid brain structures, and higher brain structures of the neocortex. I model each of these structures as having different logics, or in the archaic language of Astrology, different charts. Yet these charts supply an excellent metaphor: the reptilian brain belongs to the circadian rhythm of the acupuncture meridians, the mammal brain maps this energy of a whole day and night cycle onto two specific moments: of birth and its symmetric opposite as a map of the personality and its gender opposite as belonging to the cultural neural net energy surface and not to an individual. Finally the "One Mind" of the neocortex language center is mapped by the more global heliocentric structure that can be changed by contact and sharing with other humans. The first two structures have a fixed program that is unique to each individual, and the heliocentric is changed by cohesion, influence, learning, parenting and other cultural functions, but from the center is stable in the "real" structure from which all the other structures are shadows or illusion. From this center emerges the one of human's most respected abilities: empathy as the ability to know another person or situation as if from inside. With the understanding that language evolved as permutations within this heliocentric structure, "One Mind" and empathy logically emerge. This "One Mind" can generate many patterns of which prior evolution "assigned" each different pattern to a different species, with the complementary set being their "environment". Thus each individual contains structural information that links them to their whole ecological system: living systems are not isolated accidents whose only cognitive processes are about individual survival values.
Is human history really a process of discovery / uncovering and understanding the emerging nature of being human revealed in the above three points. Is the evolution of or invention of a level of holographic mind that can be shared with everyone belonging to a culture, that allows them to define themselves as “cultural”, the process by which this “external” supervision can emerge from within. [yet it still retains the self organizing structure]. This results from the enormous “programming space” that emerged in the neocortex: it was waiting to be discovered.
