19:11:44@volhard:matrix.org@volhard:matrix.org I'm not basing my 'why' on a conscious causer. I'm rather questioning the semantics of existence. Given that we're, I assume it's likely that there're planes of existence orthogonal to ours (with existence being defined by some measurable within that plane). If so, then why would or not they interact? And secondly, is it necessary that all forms of existence (do not assume it's necessarily about the concept of information) are bound to mathematical explanation within or that some are not mathematical at all?
19:15:00@volhard:matrix.org@volhard:matrix.orgAnd thanks for the book suggestion.

There are other ways to talk, for example the Universe has certain constrained dimensionless parameters, some mathematical, some physical. Why constrain at all? And secondly, the conservation of energy is some seriously powerful meta-rule in the realm, creepy to be honest.
23:49:02@volhard:matrix.org@volhard:matrix.org Even an infinite (countable or uncountable) regress chain/tree/<insert arbitrary structure> can be taken as a whole under another meta-system and so could the same be done to this new system. It's like the Cantor hierarchy with every system having another to encompass it. A way to stop this form of relativization is to have a system that encompasses itself, namely the 'system encompassing all systems' which is paradoxical (Russel's argument), but somehow necessary - a God-like defined logic-unbound can of worms. I feel/know I'm talking jack-shit, but that's what I probably should be doing in a Philosophy room.

00:09:09@volhard:matrix.org@volhard:matrix.orgMaybe I should invoke the anthropic principle concerning parameter consistency and energy conservation, but something makes me think existence probably could separate metacognition (a form of computation) from extant interaction mechanisms.

I've read the book and I get what you mean between 'why' and 'how'.

To redefine semantics,
Assume a chain: x -> y
where x,y are states and 'x -> y' is a process,

Based on the book,
"why x -> y?" <=> "what 'x' such that 'x -> y' and what was 'x' thinking while doing such?"
"how x ->y?" <=> "what 'x', '->' such that 'x -> y'?"

What I seek is simply '?', something that gets me in to a fit of laughing like a mad man everytime I think of it.

10:45:44@inphovore:matrix.orginphovore Existence is the interaction. I believe Volhard congeals several relatable concepts into one. There is hyperdimensionality, yet only one existence, that which resolves as manifest forms of state’s collapse in Objective Reality. What exists beyond this is Universal Potential. There are factors of Universal Potential which may or may not resolve, or intersect with your point of awareness. Thus from the horizon of your unawareness unaccountable (whether by omission or inability to perceive.)

They say that every path we choose creates alternative realities. How come there is only one existence if you think there is hyperdimensionality? I believe there multiple existences, and those choices we do in moment to moment creates them.

13:49:37@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreYou may conjure in your mind anything which pleases you. That there is a universal potential beyond and gives rise to manifest form is one description. An amplitude of superposition resolves by the entropic dilation of time. Potentials crash together (destructive and constructive interference) to work out among themselves how the moment of now (Reality) emerges. It is self indulgent to imagine completely whole and parallel existences forming for every variation of resolve. That more potential exists than what may be perceived or measured as observable phenomena is certain.
13:50:56@mara_the_devil:matrix.orgDark BoddhisattvaNothing but emptiness gives existence to form.
13:53:39@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreI like to separate the term “Reality” from [human] “actuality”. Reality is what physically resolves as Truth. With actuality of what goes on in the mind (reasons for doing a thing.) While the “reason” or story behind something may be wrong, in error, by misbelief or whatever the effect upon so called reality is induced by a potentially completely unrelated human actuality.
13:55:40@mara_the_devil:matrix.orgDark BoddhisattvaI do not believe in anything beyond. Reality emerges from the actions we took. Parallel universes are possible. Just to say that there is only one existence then we can also argue that opposite exists too, that there is parallel universes. There are only so many ways matter can arrange itself within that infinite universe. Eventually, matter has to repeat itself and arrange itself in similar ways. So if the universe is infinitely large, it is also home to infinite parallel universes.
