So then, I have a question, NorEaster. What holds this DCH -- this superhighway of experience, information, and personality together? What prevents it from breaking apart and drifting...away from itself, until there's nothing left but inconsequential fragments?
If there is a Center, what is it?
If there is not, then back to my original question. What holds it together?
In short, the answer is The Informational Continuum (IC). That said, each full contextual environment contains and is defined by its own isolated IC. As one would have to insist, there is a primordial full contextual environment, and that environment is where the initial IC reigns supreme (a little personification in use). All other full contextual environments are based on unique Unit Rate of Change (URC) and I am only aware of how such secondary environments are initiated by intelligent beings, with specific intentions for such full environments. If they (these secondary full environments) emerge naturally, I'm not aware of how that can occur.
The mechanics involved are the same well known mechanics that cause a ball to roll across a flat surface, and atoms to gather in physical structure to form the matter that the ball and the floor are then constructed off. That matter (material existence) is - when taken apart beyond the particle level - simple layers of organized Event trajectory (linear and relatively redundant) that have been combined and configured in a very specific survival imperative expression called symbiosis with the other unit-level physical staple - Information. In essence, the Event unit and the Information unit are the building blocks of physical existence, and there is literally no other form of existence besides physical existence.
What defines the nature of organization and possible response for any and all full contextual environments is the relative contextual make up of the environment in question. Of course, there are universal "yes"s and "no"s, but these are extremely primitive, and few in number. The primary "yes" is "first, survive" for all that exists. All other universal "yes"s and "no"s are based off that foundational "yes", as are all relative "yes"s and "no"s regardless of the reality confine that contains them. As the progressive development (event and information in ongoing survival symbiosis) advances within a full contextual environment, the open avenues of possible event response become more and more restricted. This is due to the primordial "devotion" to the primary "yes" noted above ("first survive") and the added fact that once emerged, Information is physically permanent, as well as - as physicists already agree - instructive in its symbiotic relationship with the Event . This is how "natural forces" and "natural laws of physics" develop - again, this isn't news to the physics world.
While it may seem unlikely that such primitive forms of existence (certainly not life or intelligence of any sort) can actually form organized development, the proof exists all around us and is undeniable. Some seem to require an omnipresent omniscience beneath it all, in order for them to allow such order to exist, but the truth is that such a level of sophistication would require its own progressive development, and to explain that development puts you right back at square one again. Unless, of course, you simply declare a supernatural God-thingy responsible and walk off on the whole examination. Then again, if you're going to do that, then why bother trying to bring science and physics into any of it? Just present the bible as your science book and move on to more important matters.
