Entropy and Consciousness

One of the generalized principles of the Universe is that it is entropic. This means that matter and energy are always going toward greater chaos. If you leave an object, say a tea-cup, sit for long enough it will, at some point, start to break down. It will break into ever smaller pieces, effects like erosion will continue to break it into dust. This occurs universally. Grains of sand never self-assemble into teacups. Molecules don’t come together to form clay and bake themselves into the shape of a teacup. So where does the teacup come from? Where does a tree or a rock come from?

Our contention here is that consciousness is the source of anti-entropy or, syntropy. Entropy is the progression toward ever-increasing chaos while syntropy is the opposite; the assembling of chaos into higher levels of organization. It seems rather obvious that that teacup is the product of consciousness. In point of fact all objects, all organized systems, are always and only the manifestation of an idea assembled by consciousness. Science is now realizing that consciousness is not a product of the physical world. I was taught that the Universe started with a “Big Bang” which distributed myriad particles throughout space and that these particles attracted each other and collected into globules and clusters that somehow assembled into elements and molecules and formed matter and then somewhere in this process, cells formed and organized into cellular systems and biological entities and then somewhere in there consciousness was born. Does this make any sense? In a Universe where entropy is the rule where does a teacup come from?

Without going into detail let’s see if consciousness creating matter makes sense. If we choose to believe that this is so; that at a very fundamental level, consciousness is the spark which initiates the basic assembly of something into the most elemental of particles, that this is the driving force which initiates matter, we can see if the concept holds up. We can see that without consciousness there is no syntropy and for argument’s sake we’ll simply state, as do many religions, that all objects have consciousness. A rock, a tree, a grain of sand an animal. Any example of syntropy has consciousness behind it. We are not making something out of nothing, merely assembling energy events into groups or holons which in turn break apart and reassemble into ever more complex combinations of atoms, molecules, amino acids, cells, cell systems, organs, organ systems and organizations.

Holographic Universe

I just finished Michael Talbot’s Holographic Universe and found that I agreed with most everything he posited about the Universe looking like a hologram. Using exhaustive examples of all manner of scientific and spiritual contradictions and mysteries he serves the purpose of showing the reader why the Universe is a hologram. Good. Now what? He implies that knowing this will get us further along our evolutionary path but is a bit short on details as to how we would go about this task.

I would like to take his holographic concept and do something with it. Maybe it will help us create the model we would like to see. A different way of projecting multi-dimensional spaces, perhaps. The concept of interference patterns runs all through the work I am doing. To be able to model this space and have it intuitively navigable would be quite an acheivement.

I would highly recommend Talbot’s book to anyone not already convinced that the Universe is holographic or who finds they have trouble defending such a position.
