After re-reading the whole thread, I must apologize for my sometimes muddy formulations and imprecise terminology: Must edit some of the posts later.
Also, my latest post to X was rather out of context. Getting old, I am.
Brahmanite, I too liked your orchestra, and hopefully without infringing on your purpose with it, I will compare it to my former suggestion of
'....totality greater than the sum....' An orchestra playing together produces a symphony. Individual musicians playing as s/he best likes is only a
'sum', manifesting as noise.
And if X is going, where I believe, he will go, there will also be an unavoidable consideration of a composer. (Don't worry, I'm not going holy on
you; if I can, I try to stay with the word 'intent' for such).
I don't find a necessary contradiction between an orchestra and a holographic universe. Both are possible in multiple relative 'realities'.
X. Your example of sheep/goats as evidence I can't fault, but then I'm already so convinced of the existence of anomalies, that I don't need proof
anymore. So to the biocentry.
But first, being circumstantial as usual, a few thoughts. I have spent some time speculating on the difference between complex and non-complex. And,
at the moment, I can't put my finger on any specific single point, which makes THE difference. Even if it's a bit farfetched...who knows what
happens awareness- and communication-wise in an atom, when it swaps an electron with another atom or get signals through the force-executing
transmitter particles (e.g. photons). Or does a stone say a 'stoneword' every thousand years? Neither can we speculate on 'will' or 'intellect'
in non-complexity, for lack of any knowledge at all. Personally I believe, that there's SOME kind of consciousness in everything.
Obviously organic life is much more complex, and a structural complexity (as a co-operative unit) can perform activities based on a multi-approach,
even manifesting in possibilities of reversing processes. I.e. to an advanced degree going somewhat against mechanistic determinism; relatively fast.
This is probably an existential bonus, we are not COMPLETE victims of cosmic laws. But then this existential mobility also makes for a quicker
evolutionary competition, and even if mankind presently seems to have something of an upper hand, we're not on top of the world. E.g. will viruses
mutate as fast as we can create defenses against them.
Guess X already knows this, but maybe a few readers have ended up here and wonder what on earth I'm talking about.
Most complexity, will because of certain cosmic blueprint -aspects of predation, evolve very quick. The competition is stiff.
And considering, that complexity ALSO has another side, this is important. This other side is a PASSIVE function for reversal of processes. Complexity
practically functions as a milk-separator. From input, raw milk, is produced light milk, milk and cream. This can be considered in context with the
cosmic process called enthropy, where energies eventually reach a homogenous state. Everything will be 'the same'. Complexity can be said to be
negative enthropy, reverting enthropy and recreating 'differences'. And cosmos, as we experience it, is based on the dynamics between differences.
So the passive role of complexity is part of universal maintenance.
Some retrocausul ideas can be derived from that.
