....some systems "rest" completely within their respective well, and a great many other systems maintain themselves very near to the critical threshold (*2) of their transition state (*3)....
Truth is not objective, nor is it subjective. The truth is that reality has no ground, no essence, and is therefore empty. All the ten thousand things arise in relation to all other things and no thing in particular has any substantial existence in and of itself. Reality, unlike a this video, has infinite resolution. That means it cannot be reduce to some smaller components or pixels, it goes on and on, receding into itself forever.

A well-known scientist once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise."
The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the tortoise standing on?" "You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady. "But it's tortoises all the way down!"
Because energy appears only in wave formations (swirls), we believe that time appears in the same form, in quants (energetic space), and proceeds together with energetic creation (masses). The phrase “Time is ticking away” in essence means that energy does away with time. Every phase has its time, after which its “genes” of energetic matter transfer to the next phase or to space.

At what scale is an eigenstate? Is it only a fraction of something or does it go up and/or down in scale for infinity?
I can visualize a particle and a wave. (but I cannot visualize a wave collapsing into a particle.) Is an eigenstate a fraction of a wave or the overall shape of a wave or the frequency of a wave or what?
What controls the wells/frequency of an eigenstate?
Are eigenstates able to come into contact with other eigenstates; and if so, why does contact not create complete disorder? If they do not come into contact with one another, what keeps them separate?
And last but not least, how would you say change, as a whole, effects eigenstates? For example, what correlative effect would eigenstates have on evolution and vice versa?
p.s. On the other thread, I thought you were thinking of the cause of this dynamic reality, yet it seems you have stopped short. What do you think is the controlling factor of change? What is the limiter/delimiter of change?

So what do I think? I think all creatures are mortal and we're here to survive and we make up our own reasons for existing.

By the way, holograms are constructs, they prove a higher plane, and a Higher Mind.
Some like to think of our universal plane as if its alive and we're its feelers learning, over and over again, and seemingly never gaining any knowledge or changing behavior, how to murder, enslave, be enslaved, starved, tortured, mistreated, over and over again. The universal ALL/ONE is a stupid bear as the children's book goes, circles just circles.
