I thought the only chance for human evolution might be aliens, but today we are changing through the internet and our creation of “distributed open trusted databases”. Physically we have evolved from amoeba to fish to man-apes to humans and intellectually we evolved when Socrates and Plato established human thought. Their use of the word ‘gnosis’ recognized a perceiver. We have now become dependent on the internet and businesses have been built by it, think Google, Facebook and Uber just to name a few. As with all things corporations are taking over so focussed on money we have become, but the internet still provides an opportunity to evolve. A Google internet search nowadays presents results according to Google’s preferences. The US election is an example, the results for a search on ‘Hilary email’ weren’t by the number of hits but an algorithm, in the time of Trump Facebook has become the source of fake news. I am waiting for a new search engine which, like Steemit, uses a ‘Distributed Open Trusted Database’ which presents search results according to your preferences. Maybe the number of hits or location or accuracy. The result to your search criteria might partly reside on any computer globally, shared resources with no server someone can control. No influence just data, an open way to access information, not determined by companies or interests. Today corporations might be controlling the data, mediating the search in hidden ways. Also there is crypto currency where we may even transcend money, the human interpretation of value. Instead we could focus on life and experience. I think life more valuable than money. Money is such a human abstraction, how much do you earn? rather are you happy? Sure we needed it for incentive to evolve to this point but maybe we can evolve further and go beyond competitive man as I’ve listed below. Indeed through artificial intelligence we have created machines that can think which has become our primary activity, perhaps inter-galactic man next?
Thinking Man – Gnosis
Competitive Man – Money
Intelligent Man – Artificial
Science is confident that we will soon be able to time travel. I suspect one of the reasons religion is ubiquitous today is because in the future humans do learn to time travel. I’m not disputing that God exists, perhaps he does in the other dimension where time travel exists. Maybe in the past people have experienced visitations from future humans but couldn’t interact with them in a 3rd dimensional way. We cannot comprehend experiences that are not tangible. Indeed when we learn to time travel there will be no such thing as death. Time might only be a property of the 3rd dimension. I have often heard that time is the next dimension. My insomnia continues, the very next day I think there must be something to do so I continue to write this post. It’s just after 5am and I return to the local MRT coffee shop, lucky it’s open 24 hours. I think it was probably natural for primitive man to sleep 4 hours a time, with the development of our mental abilities and the creation of bedrooms, beds, blankets and employment et al our sleeping patterns changed to the 8 hours it is today. Probably our time traveling descendent’s know this. Indeed bed is warm and comfortable, wish I could return to an 8 hour sleep pattern, probably need a job to do that.
The issues confronting the world today as we move towards a global government are symptomatic of human evolution I think, so interested we are globally in the outcomes of the US election. In the time of Plato his theory of forms suggested that to see wasn’t merely the act of observation but also of knowledge, gnosis, to know. That word represents non material observation. That was our last significant leap forward I believe. It gave us the modern world of thought, education, politics, art… I think human thought is changing again. Perhaps todays populist movements of Brexit and Trump provide a clue, the collective is taking charge. Having said that the United States is going to prevent muslim immigration creating an us versus them mentality, hardly evolution. It’s terrible whats happening in Syria right now. Maybe we’ll have a new understanding of immigration and care for all human beings, for existence and life, when we evolve. I think we live in a very important period in history, so here are my thoughts.
We should move away from the human invention of money, economic value is such an abstraction from reality. We are also destroying our planet and climate change should be our focus. Space and science offer much and can possibly solve the global warming problem too. Space might discover another world we can live on and other intelligent life, actually I suspect we have already interacted with aliens. On Mars we will be able to focus on life itself, there will be no room left for human mundanities. And science might be able to alter particles that cause global warming, remove the carbon from the atoms. Sciences entanglement theory and 3D printing are profound. They say we will soon be able to travel time. Then there is technology, the internet provides us with the ability to share information immediately. Soon Artificial Intelligence (AI) will provide us its precise evaluation, it already does. Indeed there is so much for us to discover in the universe we only need to evolve before we become extinct by our own hand.
And humans are soon going to Mars. I think the only way for us to save our planet from global warming and the like is to evolve and move away from our monetisation of everything we know. Then perhaps we can take our place in the universe as the species from the blue planet in the solar system where they call the bright light the sun. I think we should start emphasising existence and experience for human beings rather than always reducing our abstractions to money. Indeed money was a useful and necessary metaphor for us, a third dimensional creature, and it has helped us to evolve as far as we have but we can now go beyond primitive man to ultimately interact with other life in this universe.
And for fellow coma victims, I think Thai massage helps incredibly as it stimulates the brain for various body sensations although the brain also seems to be remembering my defects from before coma, most notably tinnitus. The ringing in my left ear has returned. I can even remember tinnitus as it bothered me greatly.
I must include the above link as it shows that others too consider the consequences of entanglement theory. I have written about it and also about the near death experience (NDE), in particular the double split experiment for entanglement theory. The link above considers the same, I didn’t copy the ideas. The double slit experiment of entanglement tells us that if you change the polarity of a particle another particle is changed simultaneously despite distance if they were created in the same event, it has been proven on Earth. My twin brother sent me the link above which expands upon these subjects, I have posted about them several times here on this blog and also said that the non-material world is as real as the material world. Indeed the link questions which world comes first, the chicken or the egg, matter requires perception to exist these scientists suggest. In fact the article claims that we can redefine the universe to be consciousness itself rather than matter. As the saying goes we exist in a puff of logic.
My wife is about to start a PHD at a most interesting institution, the ‘university of metaphysics’. It seems to express ideas similar to those that I often consider on this site, the cerebral domain as opposed to the physical domain. The university suggests that now there is a resurgence in thought, metaphysical thinking. I will look at the subjects she studies closely and perhaps I too will study again. The university mentions some great names in their description, for example Jung, metaphysical thinkers of the past. Perhaps humanity will again focus on the other reality, indeed as they say deep thought has offered much to our species, especially this kind of thinking. They also suggest that maybe metaphysics has a place again in the new world of technology. Transfer me to AI and bring on the technological entity. It seems I’m not alone in my thinking.

I’m back home, at the MRT coffee shop reflecting on recent events in my life, and also on humanities thinking. I can talk of facts in my life but can only try and get at the truth for the collective there are so many things to consider for humans, belief is central. For my part I’ve returned home from Thailand and celebrated my wife’s birthday yesterday the culmination of which was a family dinner at Jumbo. For the species I’ve been thinking about belief again, or human thought. We have science which people would say represents fact, observable events in the universe, science like ‘entanglement theory’, indeed we know much more about existence nowadays. Scientifically we have explored sub-atomic particles and have made remarkable progress. Science does actually hint at the magic of the universe or belief given entanglements suggestion that particles created in the same event can communicate instantaneously despite distance, change the polarity in one and it changes immediately in the other even if they are light years apart. We also have belief, as I have always said human thought is as real as the material world, it’s only that we haven’t yet defined particles to account for that discrete reality. We have always marvelled at life, maybe Jesus represents the wonderment that we live with and is an expression of that. But we have now chosen science and technology as our focus, in the past we chose belief, just a different metaphor in my mind. To explore belief, there have been Near Death Experiences (NDE) so similar that NDE must allude to another kind of fact. There are many unexplainable experiences in human life, like NDE, psychics, mind reading… I am quite certain of the magic in life and the universe through science and belief, evidence abounds. In Thailand I was told of a man who during an operation felt cold while under anaesthetic and saw a light and thought he should go there for warmth. A nurses said we’ve lost him and he said no I’m still here but the nurse couldn’t hear, then another voice said he must go back and then he felt cold again but survived the operation. NDE’s are quite a common event. The ‘National Geographic’ of April 2016 has an article about NDE called ‘The Crossing’ which in the beginning says “…he was dead for more than an hour and a half, days later he left a hospital alive and well. His story is one of many prompting scientists to question the very meaning of death.” I include the link to that national geographic article below, it is a good read maybe merging my two issues of fact and belief or human thought…Humans must survive global warming first, perhaps we can survive anyway and there is no death. A link to that page… link
I think that like the atoms of the material world thought is also a stuff of the universe, existent. When we die our consciousness enters this global thought domain, the non physical domain of the universe. Total knowledge is there so ofcourse we know of our own past existence, as we know of everything that transpired within the universe, but now we are a part of the global domain of thought. We know of everyone’s existence as we merge with total knowledge, universal knowledge. You might say we cease to exist but we always have existed and always will. Time is not apparent there, existence is the thing.
Deep true thinking, search on the net for his philosophy I found this
