Space/Time & Time/Space
Space/Time is what we experience here on Earth, 3 dimensions of space (horizontal, vertical, and depth) and 1 dimension of time (the one continuous flow of time). Time/Space is what we will experience if we are able to pierce the veil, 3 dimensions of time (past, present, and future) of wherever you are which is the 1 dimension of space (yourself).
To make an example of this imagine an apple. The outside of the apple is the infinite universe which is space/time. The inside of the apple is time/space which is a continuous loop that can be traveled. In order to reach time/space you must be able to pierce the veil and get in to time/space from space/time. Of course I know the apple isn't infinite, but imagine that apple as the infinite universe.
Picking up where we left off a year ago, a conversation about the homeostatic imperative as it plays out in everything from bacteria to pharmaceutical companies—and how the marvelous apparatus of the human mind also gets us into all kinds of trouble.
- "Prior to nervous systems: no mind, no consciousness, no intention in the full sense of the term. After nervous systems, gradually we ascend to this possibility of having to this possibility of having minds, having consciousness, and having reasoning that allows us to arrive at some of these very interesting decisions."
- "We are fragile culturally and socially…but life is fragile to begin with. All that it takes is a little bit of bad luck in the management of those supports, and you're cooked…you can actually be cooked—with global warming!"
Atheism doesn't offer much beyond non-belief, can Secular Humanism fill the gaps?
- Atheism is increasingly popular, but the lack of an organized community around it can be problematic.
- The decline in social capital once offered by religion can cause severe problems.
- Secular Humanism can offer both community and meaning, but it has also attracted controversy.
To reach a breakthrough solution to any problem, it's necessary to first understand the underlying causes.
- Companies often jump right into workshopping solutions to a problem before they truly understand the underlying source and "pain points" of the issue.
- Deliberate Innovation CEO, Dan Seewald, advises companies to visualize and map out those unmet needs in order to discover a new path to a fresh solution. Only then should you move onto brainstorming and ideation techniques.
- These important steps allow for more meaningful experimentation, as well as greater opportunity for learning and breakthroughs.
