Re: [Mind and Brain] More arguments in behalf of a hybrid reality where the empirical & the conceptual become one seamless unit.

Rather than thinking your ideas and questions are juvenile or simple, I thing
they are far more profound and answerable than all the questions science asks
that so far remain unexplained by their scientific methods. So, even with a
smile on my face of pleased wonderment at your audacity, let me try to answer
your questions below using the same kind of intuition that allows you to
answer them for yourself by the way the questions are worded based on your own

This analogy is exactly the way the outer-inner world works -- since (picture
this) everything is linked together by the spinning fields within fields
within fields that fractally involve -- after radiating out from the encircling
spinergy or G-force of the zero-point of absolute space (the origin of pure
consciousness) -- like Russian dolls or Chinese boxes, two inside each other, ad
infinitum, while remaining interconnected within one encompassing mother field
of absolute universal consciousness spinning at infinite velocity that
surrounds them all. All that we see and experience around us are simply patterns of
energy vibrations on the surface of the lowest (fourth iteration for the
scientists) energy phase of these fields where our physical bodies exist along
with other forms of solidified matter and measurable physical forces (gravity,
electric, weak, strong, etc.) ... With all of this unbreakably tied together,
through these interconnected fields, to the absolute zero-point and its spinergy
-- which is reflected everywhere as centers of consciousness (Spirit or Atma
for the mystic philosophers) throughout our cosmic space-time continuum.
Thus, in fundamental reality -- one is all, and all is one. And, consciousness
(or spirit) and matter are simply like two sides of a single coin, one
objective and the other, subjective.
Since each coenergetic field involution following the primal beginning
represents another level of descending consciousness as well as energy phase order,
you have intuitively discovered the means that the ancient meditative masters
used to transfer their consciousness from one level to another until they
reach the universal center of Spiritual or God consciousness where exists absolute
stillness (with all sinuous linear vibrations resolved into pure circular or
nonlinear spin) -- the source of infinite wisdom and knowledge surrounded by
the perfect bliss of infinite homogeneity where everything is merged into one
thing -- as it was in the beginning (and always is at the ubiquitous zero-point
of pure consciousness). Vide the Sufi whirling Dervishes and the spinning
Kabbalists who achieve such meditative states that begin with their whirl
dancing so as to synchronize all their inner and outer fields in a single direction
of spin, and thus, ultimately merge them together at their common center of
origin. Unfortunately (from a scientific standpoint) this can only be
pictured in the mind and felt or subjectively experienced by a merger of all the
senses into one's center of individual self awareness.

You've hit the nail right on the head. "?" = spin. And "speed" = angular
momentum. String theory sees each apparently separate particle composed of a
string of pure force vibrating at different rates of cyclic motion. ABC
theory sees this apparent separation being related to the different vibrating wave
interference patterns creating separate holographic images on the surfaces of
the coenergetic fields surrounding the zero-point of absolute space -- which
is everywhere at the centers and junctions between each triple set of the
spherically involved fractal fields extending diametrically in metric space from
zero to infinity.

Since our thoughts are energy represented by wave interference patterns on
the surface of the coenergetic fractal fields within fields, etc., the mind that
carries the thoughts must be one of those fields.
See: How It All Began
So, that energy must come from the original "spinergy" (angular momentum)
surrounding the zero-point origin of each of those fields. Again, your question
answers itself. Since those zero-points are everywhere in the universe and
is why our thought images or imaginations can reach out to the sphere of the
Cosmos encompassing the furthest galactic clusters and can imagine or picture
in the mind the most complex and fantastically beautiful pictorial or sonic
imagery. (Although, it's only those artists and composers among us who have
studied, practiced and learned how to reproduce and record these images so others
can enjoy them.) But, all of us have those same powers of imagination, and
can learn to use them if we focus our attention inwardly.

Another good question that contains its own answer... That is, if we can see
how all things come from one thing -- as described by the ABC spin field model
of cosmogenesis and universal involution and evolution. Those coenergetic
fields are probably equivalent to the hyperspace fields (postulated in string
and quantum field theories) that are enfolded within the supposedly empty space
between the quantum particles -- which is full of seething perturbations of
energy coming in and out of existence as the quantum particles that compose all
the metric forms and fields we experience through our senses and detect and
measure with our scientific instruments.

I only wish that science could tell us as much with their measurements about
the true nature of reality as you have found through your "'hobby' of
'thinking - A LOT!'" about these questions... (As I have for more years than I can
remember.:-) Incidentally, Einstein had the same "hobby" when he came up with
E=MC^2 and wrote an essay on relativity around age 16-17 -- before he began
his study of physics in order to learn enough mathematics to prove his ideas
scientifically and be able to publish his thesis academically -- which he did in
1905 when he was 24. His response to someone commenting on his "genius"
was, "Genius is simply continued concentration on a single point of inquiry for a
very long period of time." He also said, "It takes a touch of genius-and a
lot of courage-to move in the opposite direction."
See: Einstein and the Secret Doctrine
Contact me directly, if you'd like a list of some non scientific reading
material that Einstein probably studied that might answer most of your profoundest
questions related to these subjects.
