Note
This research is not final. That is why I am sharing this model of change and the resources that I used in order to construct this model. Please provide constructive criticism and do not feel obligated in modifying this model. I also invite questions. Questions are necessary in order to arrive at a better understanding for not only myself but for everyone as well.

What is the significance of “Paraclete”?
Paraclete means advocate or helper.
(en.wikipedia.org...)

Assumption: everything is a sum of the previous two.

Concepts
First, I present the basis for my model. The process of change is certain. The process of change is cyclic and self-sustaining. Cyclic processes have no beginning or end. There are only transitions. The universe is the totality of everything that exists. This includes all matter and energy, the planets, stars, galaxies, and the contents of intergalactic space. The Universe uses evolution to change. Consciousness is a term that refers to the relationship between the mind and the world with which it interacts. The mind is constituted by conscious experience and intelligent thought.

The Model
The Universe expresses its maximum self through the evolution of The Consciousness. The Consciousness replicates itself. The copy is the "light-bearer". The Consciousness becomes fully self-conscious through interactions with the "light-bearer". The Consciousness copies itself into a third consciousness, the "helper", to support the second consciousness. The three consciousnesses replicate many copies of themselves. The "helper" and its replicated consciousness leave the elusive zone of light and enter the zone of dark, the void.

The "helper" creates matter, possibly through “quantum fluctuation”. The “Big Bang” occurs. The “Big Bang” within The Universe expresses its maximum self through the evolution of subatomic particles. Subatomic particles express themselves by forming the Atom. The Atom forms a copy. The copy is hydrogen. The Atom becomes fully self-conscious through interactions with hydrogen. The Atom copies itself into a third consciousness, the stars, to support hydrogen. The three elements replicate themselves. Star leaves the zone of light into the dark, the void.

The stars create planets, through the collapse of a nebula into a thin disk of gas and dust. The planets express their maximum self through the evolution of water molecules. Water molecules express themselves by forming gaseous water. Gaseous water copies itself. The copy is liquid water. Gaseous water becomes fully self-conscious through interactions with liquid water. The gaseous water copies itself into a third consciousness, solid water. The three forms of matter replicate themselves. Solid water leaves the zone of light into the dark, the void.

The solid water creates the cell. The cell expresses their maximum self through the evolution of the living organism. The living organism expresses itself by forming the plant. The plant copies itself. The copy is the invertebrate animal. The plant becomes fully self-conscious through interaction with the invertebrate animal. The plant copies itself into a third consciousness, the vertebrate animal. The three forms of matter replicate themselves. Vertebrate animal leaves the zone of light into the dark, the void.

The vertebrate animal creates the mammal. The mammal expresses their maximum self through the evolution of language. The language expresses itself by forming the hominid. The hominid copies itself. The copy is kin. The hominid becomes fully self-conscious through interaction with kin. The hominid copies itself into a third consciousness, culture. The three forms of humanity replicate themselves. Culture leaves the zone of light into the dark, the void.

The culture creates agriculture. The agriculture expresses their maximum self through the evolution of civilization. The civilization expresses itself by forming the group identity. The group identity copies itself. The copy is group behavior. The group identity becomes fully self-conscious through interaction with group behavior. The group identity copies itself into a third consciousness, a consciousness. The three forms of humanity replicate themselves. A consciousness leaves the zone of light into the dark, the void.

A consciousness replicates itself. The copy is a "light-bearer". A consciousness becomes fully self-conscious through interactions with a "light-bearer". A consciousness copies itself into a third consciousness, a "helper", to support the second consciousness. The three consciousnesses replicate many copies of themselves. The "helper" and its replicated consciousness leave the zone of light and enter the zone of dark, the void.

The "helper" creates matter, possibly through “quantum fluctuation”. A “Big Bang” occurs. A “Big Bang” expresses its maximum self through the evolution of subatomic particles.

Formulations of the question
The Fibonacci sequence is applied to this model. The first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. For example, “The Consciousness” is the sum of “Existence” and “The Universe”.

0 = Existence
1 = The Universe
1 = The Consciousness
2 = The Light-bearer
3 = The Helper
5 = Subatomic particles
8 = Atom
13 = Hydrogen
21 = Stars
34 = Planets
55 = Water molecules
89 = Gaseous water
144 = Liquid water
233 = Solid water
377 = Cell
610 = Living organism
987 = Plants
1597 = Invertebrate animal
2584 = Vertebrate animal
4181 = Mammal
6765 = Language
10946 = Hominid
17711 = Kin
28657 = Culture
46368 = Agriculture
75025 = Civilization
121393 = Group Identity
196418 = Group behavior
317811 = A Consciousness
514229 = A Light-bearer
832040 = A Helper
1346269 = Subatomic particles
2178309 = Atom
3524578 = Hydrogen
5702887 = Stars
9227465 = Planets
14930352 = Water molecules
24157817 = Gaseous water
39088169 = Liquid water
63245986 = Solid water
102334155 = Cell
165580141 = Living organism
267914296 = Plants
433494437 = Invertebrate animal
701408733 = Vertebrate animal
1134903170 = Mammal
1836311903 = Language
2971215073 = Hominid
4807526976 = Kin
7778742049 = Culture
12586269025 = Agriculture
20365011074 = Civilization
32951280099 = Group Identity
53316291173 = Group Behavior
86267571272 = A Consciousness

This sequence is infinite. The significance of paraclete the prime mover may most likely be that everything is a sum of the previous two. The first two are Existence and The Universe.

Background and motivation
I received my bachelor's degree in anthropology in 2009. I'm now working as a field archaeologist as I prepare for entering graduate school. My motivation is to use rationalism to come at a holistic understanding of change.

What makes the Consciousness one number and then equal another different number down further?

And how come each thing is assigned to a specific number and not another number?

You're applying a Fibonacci formula resulting in a number, to things such a planets, and cells, and atoms?

Then again, what does a paraclete, or a light bearer, or a helper have anything to do with Fibonacci numbers?
Seems a bit religious to me...

en.wikipedia.org...

Some Muslim commentators, such as David Benjamin Keldani, argue that the original Greek word used was periklytos, meaning famed, illustrious, or praiseworthy, rendered in Arabic as Ahmad, and that this was substituted by Christians with parakletos.[12][13] However, there is no textual evidence to be found in currently existing versions of the NT to support this claim. Followers of Imam Almahdy in particular, argue that the Paraclete is a person who Jesus will send onto us at the end of time. Jesus said: "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, The Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment." John 16: 7-8 Jesus said: "If you love Me, keep My commandments. Then I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Paraclete to be with you forever. He is the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, for it does not see Him nor know Him, but you know Him, for He is ever with you and will be in you." John 14:15-17.

I see nothing rational about this theory.

Sort of reminds me about chasing crows in A Beautiful Mind to try and find a pattern in the randomness of Crow interactions.

"The Consciousness" is assumed to be ultimate consciousness and is, therefore, assigned to the "number one" in the Fibonacci sequence. It is assigned to other numbers in the sequence to demonstrate change.

Each attribute is assigned to a specific number because each attribute is a product of change, or a sum of the previous two attributes. These components of nature certainly change and demonstrate motion.

The Fibonacci sequence is a model demonstrating change. The numbers most likely do not mean anything. It is not numerology, but it is a model demonstrating change.

The terms "paraclete" and "light-bearer" are evident of people conceptualizing what cannot be seen. These concepts eventually make their way into all avenues of thinking, including the religions that have grown to evolve over the course of thought.

Thanks for posting your work. I'm sure you'll get many creative suggestions, but I only have questions, I might not be bright enough to follow your work.

From your section on concepts:

The process of change is cyclic and self-sustaining.
Where do you show the cyclic nature of the process? You give it a start and an end. Do you think the universe will come back from heat death? Where does the consciousness that starts the process come from? We have many questions about the start and end of the Universe. What do you mean

The process of change is certain


The Universe uses evolution to change.
What does "evolution" mean to you? Does a meteor "evolve?" Does energy?

Consciousness is a term that refers to the relationship between the mind and the world with which it interacts. The mind is constituted by conscious experience and intelligent thought.
If your system starts with consciousness, and conciousness needs a mind and a world to interact with, what is the world the conciousness interacts with at the start?

The Universe expresses its maximum self through the evolution of The Consciousness.
But didn't you say evolution was change? At the end of this process you have three conciousnesses, all the same, but with different names. (Why three? Are you going for the Trinity? You noticed that the first three Fibonacci numbers are not replicated?)

The "helper" and its replicated consciousness leave the elusive zone of light and enter the zone of dark, the void.
What do you mean, the void? Is this a different universe? A part of the one the three conciousnesses are in? If it's a different Universe, how was that one created?

I hope you'll forgive me for asking so many questions. I have many more, but my fingers are tired. Perhaps if I had a degree in archaeology it would be clearer to me.

How come there is a repeat of same things equaling different numbers
And as in the second time around, a consciousness and group behaviour have to equal a light bearer, where as before it was the universe and consciousness = light bearer???

121393 = Group Identity
196418 = Group behavior
317811 = A Consciousness
514229 = A Light-bearer
832040 = A Helper
1346269 = Subatomic particles
2178309 = Atom
3524578 = Hydrogen
5702887 = Stars
9227465 = Planets

0 = Existence
1 = The Universe
1 = The Consciousness
2 = The Light-bearer
3 = The Helper
5 = Subatomic particles
8 = Atom

Fibonacci numbers can go on forever. Have you got a number ='s everything? A number cant equal everything.
Plus really what's it to do with the numbers?
I'm really not understanding the concept of this.
Why does something have to equal a number?
It's like trying to say that my fanfic stories that i put onto paper are equal to stories=4567898 + fictional=998743676 = 1003311574. Where does it get you?

Thank you for your questions. I hope I that I am able to convey answers to you in a way that will help us both come to a common understanding.

The cyclic nature of the whole process shows repetition of each component i.e. conscious level, molecular level, cosmic level, cellular level, lithosphere level, biosphere level, and sociosphere level. Each of these components reoccur, but in different states. The Fibonacci sequence demonstrates the order of where these components must occur. The variables demonstrate that each component in the cyclic model is different from its previous component, but they essentially fit the same classification i.e. hominids are still hominids but with a different language.

I provide my assumption of the start. I assume there is first "Existence" and "The Universe". As for the end of the sequence, I continue this with the statement "This sequence is infinite." The Fibonacci sequence is infinite, and time and textual space limits my capacity in writing this sequence into infinite.

There are many hypotheses and theories pertaining to the visible part of the universe that we live in. I think all of them are right. The question of where "The Consciousness" starts from is both psychological and philosophical. Descartes most likely provides the best explanation: "I think, therefore I am." Most likely, there are many things in our part of the universe that we have not detected yet. With time, technology will allow us to see the yet invisible spectrum such as the recent mapping of dark energy.

The process of change is certain because everything changes into different forms of energy and matter. Change is motion and that keeps the ground that we walk on, changing, whether that be through plate tectonics or forces weathering material away into tiny granular matter.

Evolution is a process of change. A meteor goes through a process of change.


Until now, no one has been able to definitively establish where the majority of meteorites found on Earth came from because of the changes that occur in meteorites after they are ejected from the asteroids they were originally part of.


www.universetoday.com...

A meteor does go through a process of change.

Energy goes through a process of change as well. Energy is an indirectly observed quantity, and quantities change.

According to my model, "The Consciousness" is a sum of "Existence" and "The Universe." This system is assumed to start with "Existence" and the "Universe."

Evolution is a process of change, and there is no end to this process even though I did end the Fibonacci sequence in textual form. Writing out the whole Fibonacci sequence would take forever because there would be no end. My body would expire before I even came close to finishing the sequence.

The question of what is the same and what has changed. It is important to recognize that the components replicate themselves, in other words they are copies, but they are not the exact same component. With that said, the consciousness following "The Consciousness" are sum of "The Consciousness and "The Universe" and so on. This is not the Trinity. The Trinity is composed of The Man with a white beard dressed in white robes, The Jewish individual named Jesus Christ, and a dove called the Holy Spirit.

Current conceptualization of "universe" is the totality of everything that exists. By this concept, it is assumed that there is only one universe since all existing components constitute a "universe". However, there are spectrum that are yet invisible to our senses such as "void" and "light". With advancing technology, I hope our tools will allow us to detect these spectra.

Thank you for your questions.

The numbers do not mean anything. They only provide reference points such as a timeline, but make no mistake, the numbers are not dates.

The starting point serves as the start. It is assumed that change will follow a rhythm, but each component in the model is essentially the same component it was before, however, in another state i.e. hominids from before essentially fit the same classification scheme of hominids from before but with a different language.

This has nothing to do with the numbers. The numbers only serve to help conceptualize and understand the written model. I'm sorry for assigning numbers to these attributes. I can understand how people can become attached to numbers and find meaning within them. This has nothing to do with the numbers.

0 is simply a starting point. It means nothing more, and 144 doesn't have any significance. Its simply a tentative reference point.

These kinds of threads genuinely scare me. And not because of any profound meaning they have, but because of the deep-seated insanity they highlight on this website.

nested series, particularly "spiral dynamics", is the central feature of my own theory of everything.

a modern philosopher who has really laid the groundwork for this is Ken Wilber. his four quadrant model very much resembles what you are working on. if you are not intimidated by a 1200 page text, his "Sex Ecology Spirituality" receives my highest recommendation.



this other image is my own interpretation which I constructed for an essay (which is also linked).



my essay, "Topography of Eden"


sadly, like the jerk above me, most people will not understand what a powerful concept this is. good luck to you in your graduate studies.

Hey I really loved this idea! I wish there had been more people contributing to the thread. In either case, make sure to post a new thread as soon as you've made any breakthroughs. Hopefully by then I will have played around with the idea long enough in my head to feel confident in making my own contribution to it. A somewhat interesting paralell is how we are each the sum (or average?) of our parents... And so on.

It seems to me the OP is attempting to explain randomness with a mathematical constant... A bit of a conundrum there.

Desperately trying to find patterns and consistencies in everything around us is a natural human brain function, it's literally how our neural synapses communicates, relates, and then comprehends.

And, unfortunately, that's our biggest barracade to furthering our scientific knowledge and understanding of the universe around us.

Thank you for providing your opinion. In your opinion, what is randomness? Wikipedia says, "Randomness has somewhat differing meanings as used in various fields. It also has common meanings which are connected to the notion of predictability (or lack thereof) of events." What is your opinion and what is truly random?

All of us have the tendency to find meaningful patterns in meaningless noise. This behavior is conceptualized to the term "apophenia".

Well, I think that may be where our problem lies... we're attempting to find consistencies in absolutely everything even though there may be some true randomness happening in the universe that is inconsistent by nature, and therefore unpredictable and/or incalculable.

I believe we may eventually discover that we've given ourselves a handicap right out of the starting gate with regards to trying to make sense of it all.

Can you clarify, what is it in nature that exhibits randomness? Is it the process in which planets, soils, and organisms coalesce and change? Hypothetically, can we walk on a planet before it is even formed?

Okay, these are tough questions because quite frankly everything we know thus far does have a pattern of some sort (right down to known subatomic levels) and therefore, replicas of replicas per se as you point out in your hypothesis.

However, that's not to say the idea that there could be some sort of evolutionary randomness (for lack of better terminology) is therefore not possible. We would be limiting ourselves to a false dichotomy of sorts. Perhaps we've only learned of the things that have patterns simply because it's the only way our brains can posit understandings, thus the only things we can "see" ?

If we look at unusual evolutionary mutations that seemed to have happened out of "nowhere", then would that not indicate that there may very well be an ongoing random adaptation process happening based on independant environmental circumstances ? And if it happens here on earth, then surely it can be happening elsewhere in the universe at different levels, possibly even at the nano particle level in some cases ?

For the reason that I just pointed out above. It's quite possible that the unknown aspects of the universe we've yet to learn about could have some true randomness going on. Who knows. I just hate to limit our thought processes to only those things that we can logically wrap our brains around.

As Einstein once said: "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will get you everywhere."

What if we should approach this topic differently by reading between each node? What I mean by this, is to look at the spaces between each occurrence of matter. For example, what is the nature of the inter and intra relationship between and outside the spheres of matter?

More specifically, this thread rectifies this question:

What "surrounds us and penetrates us and binds the galaxy together?" How is it mirrored in reality
