First of all, apologies for taking so long to reply - I had to look into the E8 Theory a little before offering my thoughts on it and how the Timewave
might fit in somewhere. Also thank you for bringing it to my attention. Your correlation between E8 and this thread is enlightening, and if that
particular 'Theory of Everything' is accurate, then I suppose the timewave we're experiencing has to be in there somewhere.
I sourced a few images and then altered them to illustrate my views of how these two ideas might mesh.
The 248 dimensional geometric figure that represents the E8 theory is brilliant (and quite beautiful) - it shows how all aspects of the universe are
connected with each other. Changes to one portion affect the entire system. Here's the image you linked to above:
The figure is indeed complex, however it's a mathematical standard. I believe the real representation of the universe would be a little messier and
even more intertwined and connected. You'll notice that on previous pages of this thread I look at aspects of our conscious experience of the
universe from a neurological and fractal mindset. Everything is a brain, a mind, and ultimately - a neural net
, or at least connected like one.
It's my opinion that, if the E8 figure is accurate, it actually represents the 'God Mind' itself - the conscious universe, or possibly what I like
to call the 'Neuroverse
Take the image below for example. If we zoom in on a portion of the mathematical representative and look at the 'real' structure, it looks similar
to the neural structure of the brain. The connections are sprawling, overlapping, and branching out like the dendrites and synapses connecting
If the universe is a mind, and everything is connected as in a neural net, then entire sections of the mind (dimensions) would be fastened together
to complete the Neuroverse. All portions would be in contact with all other portions, tied together with some invisible thread. Somewhere in the model
is time (or our conscious perception of it). Deeper still would be the code that time follows.
This last image is an example of how the Timewave thread might be plucked from the God Mind via a dimensional overlay - once aligned, the 'time'
portions from each section of the E8 could reveal the event placements of the timewave, which could then be used to form a graph of conscious time:
Anyway that's my take on it - it could have nothing to do with the mind as we know and experience it. But I feel that if the nature of the universe
is fractal, then our minds would be present on much larger scales (as well as much smaller scales). I would be surprised that neural structures
allowing consciousness would only exist at the individual organism level (as opposed to planetary, galactic, universal, multiversal...and subatomic
There's more to this obviously - I'll continue to research it. Thanks again for posting it.
