“Let there be light!”
mass : time+space
time+space : experience
experience : consciousness
No mass, no time+space
No time+space, no experiences
No experiences, no conciousness
Since light has no mass: it has no time, and no space.
Then light must be the conserved symmetric partner of consciousness.
In other words, consciousness can know what it knows because
light knows nothing. The anti-particle of the photon is consciousness. But according to physicists, the photon is its own anti-particle. This means that light through its self-interaction knows nothing and seeks to know everything.
Oh Me! Oh Life — On Consciousness and Immortality
We understand ourselves to be conscious: we have the experience of being in the world; and we also have the experience of ourselves as actors in the world. Meaning brings together these two experiences: the world; and ourselves as actors in the world to ask the two fundamental questions of meaning: “What is next?” and “What should I do next?” In my paper I will present a new model to depict how consciousness emerges from a ground state of pure Existence, or the “What is”. I will draw lightly from the historical development of the philosophy of consciousness, but I actually seek to reform the exploration, by modelling consciousness using its most fundamental physical aspects. I will touch upon how this model might make human consciousness computable. By making human consciousness computable it should be possible to adapt and transfer human consciousness from biological, earthbound forms to new more resilient forms. A portable consciousness would solve the problem of biological death, but we retain the purpose and flavour of consciousness through the emphasis on Core Values.
