My experience of 'consciousness' recently is something of the perception of 4D dimensional experiences, I wrote a bit about it
These 'experiences' are ultra real, like seeing into a 4th dimension though IMO are a projection of consciousness into the greater reality, the more
This new Quantum Optic research shows that images can be created from not directly viewing, from entangled particles.
The tie in is that perhaps consciousness is a projection that access such mechanisms on a greater or lesser scale, like a laser focusing on a point in
time or space that accesses entangled particle information or the utilisation of a 'device' that enables via quantum entanglement, a 'window' into
greater realities, where the consciousness observes universal truths etched into the fabric of space time.
The use of light is essential, the 4D dimensional experiences I have experienced were lights in space. It happened again recently, whilst at my
laptop, I closed my eyes, 4 times in a row and each time clear as day there was a triangle made of points of light, with a light dot to the middle
right of the isosceles triangle that moved into the triangle then disappeared. After 4 times it didn't happen. I tried this again last night and
nothing, just normal eyes closed.
IMO this is some sort of accessing some Universal realm where the previously invisible becomes visible via transference of energy, light is energy,
perhaps via my electrical aura or some other means. Like a projector with a filter that enables entanglement. Something like that. There are more
possibilities in the 4th dimension.
The geometry of 4-dimensional space is much more complex than that of 3-dimensional space, due to the extra degree of freedom.
Just as in 3 dimensions there are polyhedra made of two dimensional polygons, in 4 dimensions there are polychora (4-polytopes) made of polyhedra. In
3 dimensions there are 5 regular polyhedra known as the Platonic solids. In 4 dimensions there are 6 convex regular polychora, the analogues of the
Platonic solids. Relaxing the conditions for regularity generates a further 58 convex uniform polychora, analogous to the 13 semi-regular Archimedean
solids in three dimensions.
A useful application of dimensional analogy in visualizing the fourth dimension is in projection. A projection is a way for representing an
n-dimensional object in n − 1 dimensions. For instance, computer screens are two-dimensional, and all the photographs of three-dimensional people,
places and things are represented in two dimensions by projecting the objects onto a flat surface. When this is done, depth is removed and replaced
with indirect information. The retina of the eye is also a two-dimensional array of receptors but the brain is able to perceive the nature of
three-dimensional objects by inference from indirect information (such as shading, foreshortening, binocular vision, etc.). Artists often use
perspective to give an illusion of three-dimensional depth to two-dimensional pictures.
Similarly, objects in the fourth dimension can be mathematically projected to the familiar 3 dimensions, where they can be more conveniently examined.
In this case, the 'retina' of the four-dimensional eye is a three-dimensional array of receptors. A hypothetical being with such an eye would perceive
the nature of four-dimensional objects by inferring four-dimensional depth from indirect information in the three-dimensional images in its retina.
The perspective projection of three-dimensional objects into the retina of the eye introduces artifacts such as foreshortening, which the brain
interprets as depth in the third dimension. In the same way, perspective projection from four dimensions produces similar foreshortening effects. By
applying dimensional analogy, one may infer four-dimensional "depth" from these effects.
As an illustration of this principle, the following sequence of images compares various views of the 3-dimensional cube with analogous projections of
the 4-dimensional tesseract into three-dimensional space.
Are our thoughts made of the distributed kind of electromagnetic field that permeates space and carries the broadcast signal to the TV or radio?
Professor Johnjoe McFadden from the School of Biomedical and Life Sciences at the University of Surrey in the UK believes our conscious mind could
be an electromagnetic field.
“The theory solves many previously intractable problems of consciousness and could have profound implications for our concepts of mind, free
will, spirituality, the design of artificial intelligence, and even life and death,” he said.
Most people consider "mind" to be all the conscious things that we are aware of. But much, if not most, mental activity goes on without awareness.
Actions such as walking, changing gear in your car or peddling a bicycle can become as automatic as breathing.
The biggest puzzle in neuroscience is how the brain activity that we're aware of (consciousness) differs from the brain activity driving all of
those unconscious actions.
When we see an object, signals from our retina travel along nerves as waves of electrically charged ions. When they reach the nerve terminus, the
signal jumps to the next nerve via chemical neurotransmitters. The receiving nerve decides whether or not it will fire, based on the number of firing
votes it receives from its upstream nerves.
In this way, electrical signals are processed in our brain before being transmitted to our body. But where, in all this movement of ions and
chemicals, is consciousness? Scientists can find no region or structure in the brain that specializes in conscious thinking. Consciousness remains a
“Consciousness is what makes us 'human,' Professor McFadden said. “Language, creativity, emotions, spirituality, logical deduction, mental
arithmetic, our sense of fairness, truth, ethics, are all inconceivable without consciousness.” But what’s it made of?
One of the fundamental questions of consciousness, known as the binding problem, can be explained by looking at a tree. Most people, when asked
how many leaves they see, will answer "thousands." But neurobiology tells us that the information (all the leaves) is dissected and scattered among
millions of widely separated neurones.
Scientists are trying to explain where in the brain all those leaves are stuck together to form the conscious impression of a whole tree. How does
our brain bind information to generate consciousness?
What Professor McFadden realized was that every time a nerve fires, the electrical activity sends a signal to the brain's electromagnetic (em)
field. But unlike solitary nerve signals, information that reaches the brain's em field is automatically bound together with all the other signals in
the brain. The brain's em field does the binding that is characteristic of consciousness.
What Professor McFadden and, independently, the New Zealand-based neurobiologist Sue Pockett, have proposed is that the brain's em field is
