The answer to systemic isolation: what's real is family 8).

Edit: this is meant to include a HIOTTOE interpretation of family.

I note that Holographic information theory predicts that dark energy is not constant during the age of the universe [see Gough (2013) & (2014) and Farajollahi & Ravanpak (2016) and Battersby (2016)], as is support by the linked recent research:

Title: "New insights on dark energy"

https://phys.org/news/2017-10-insights-dark-energy.html

Extract: "… astronomer Daniel Eisenstein was a member of a large consortium of scientists who suggest that most of the difference between these two methods, which sample different components of the cosmic fabric, could be reconciled if the dark energy were not constant in time. The scientists apply sophisticated statistical techniques to the relevant cosmological datasets and conclude that if the dark energy term varied slightly as the universe expanded (though still subject to other constraints), it could explain the discrepancy."

The linked reference provides information related to quantum gravity, which is a subset of the theories (including string theory, shape dynamics and the holographic principle) on the Holographic Universe

Zohar Ringel and Dmitry L. Kovrizhin (27 Sep 2017), "Quantized gravitational responses, the sign problem, and quantum complexity", Science Advances ,:Vol. 3, no. 9, e1701758, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1701758

http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/9/e1701758.full

Abstract: "It is believed that not all quantum systems can be simulated efficiently using classical computational resources. This notion is supported by the fact that it is not known how to express the partition function in a sign-free manner in quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations for a large number of important problems. The answer to the question—whether there is a fundamental obstruction to such a sign-free representation in generic quantum systems—remains unclear. Focusing on systems with bosonic degrees of freedom, we show that quantized gravitational responses appear as obstructions to local sign-free QMC. In condensed matter physics settings, these responses, such as thermal Hall conductance, are associated with fractional quantum Hall effects. We show that similar arguments also hold in the case of spontaneously broken time-reversal (TR) symmetry such as in the chiral phase of a perturbed quantum Kagome antiferromagnet. The connection between quantized gravitational responses and the sign problem is also manifested in certain vertex models, where TR symmetry is preserved."

In the "Adapting to the Anthropocene" thread, I have made several references to the work on systems approach by C. West Churchman; however, I post the following linked article about the roles of deception and enlightenment here in the "Systemic Isolation" thread to emphasize the role of embracing free will (as reflected by our individual quirks) in order to overcome systemic isolation:

Charles Smith (2007), "Deception Meets Enlightenment: From a Viable Theory of Deception to a Quirk About Humanity's Potential", World Futures 63(1):42-54, DOI: 10.1080/02604020600948974

http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02604020600948974

Abstract: "This article seeks to further suggestions made by C. West Churchman (1979)8. Churchman , C. W. 1979 . The systems approach and its enemies , New York : Basic Books . View all references that a full inquiry into human systems requires a viable theory of deception. It argues that such a theory of deception requires an understanding of deception, a recognition of errors in perception, and an ability to see simultaneously from competing points of view. The intent here is to provide some insights that are useful in our understanding of deception, and thereby contributing to a viable theory of deception. Insights are used from what Huxley (1944)13. Huxley , A. 1944 . The perennial philosophy , New York : Harper and Row . View all references calls the “perennial tradition,” found particularly within the esoteric traditions of the Buddhist, Sufi, and Taoist esoteric teachings, as well as many other spiritual traditions of the world. The perennial tradition emphasizes the role and continual presence of deception, alongside enlightenment, within human experience. In accord with C. West Churchman's view, this tradition suggests that, by a simultaneous recognition of both our enlightenment and our deception in any given situation, we have the proper perspective to meet the problems we face. A thought experiment, using insights from the perennial tradition, is offered as a challenge to all involved in human systems inquiry."

Extract: "We are not merely in a state of deception.  We are rather, at one and the same time, both confused and enlightened.  This may sound at first trivial, but when we reflect on the fact that we are not merely operating with a consciousness that has a bit of enlightenment and a bit of confusion, but is rather both completely confused and completely enlightened, we find ourselves with a paradox.  The paradox is not merely a puzzle to be solved – it is rather something that we must carry.  Again we can remember Churchman's insight that we can not have a "guarantor," at any moment.  Translated into this context, we cannot know, at any moment, what perception is accurate – is "enlightenment" and what is "distorted" – is our "deception."  Contemplating this deeply will call us to explore every possible ramification of our decisions and actions.

But can we understand further the idea of complete confusion and complete enlightenment, coexisting in us at any moment?  It is this question that calls us to look toward the perennial wisdom tradition, which, we will find, is based on this exact condition, reflected well in the words of Dogen, a great Zen master: Those who greatly realize delusion are buddhas (Nishiijima and Cross, 1994, p. 33).

We recognize, then, given that the word buddha means "to be awake" and therefore not deluded, that the Dogen's words are a self-referential paradox, the very kind on which Godel based his "incompleteness theorem."  The theorem, in essence, warns us never to assume any system of thought/interpretation could be without deception, that is, could possibly have complete perception of "Reality."

From the viewpoint of the perennial tradition, things are better than they appear because our life is meant to be, quite literally, a mirror of our essence, the expression of beauty and potentiality.  In the language of the Abrahamic traditions, and also the language of Buddhism, the human being's perfection or buddha nature waits to come forth, and it is the tests and trials of life that bring it forth.  This perfection is not a predetermined structure based on a static "Reality" or archetype.  It is, rather, an emergence from a non-equilibrium condition, a fresh expression of being in a new configuration, only possible in a universe that allows for free will and indeterminancy.

The work on dissipative self-organization and on the embrace of uncertainty (Prigogine and Stengers, 1997) offers us a great deal of insight into the way that nature self-evolves, via non-equilibrium conditions – towards greater beauty and elegance, ever going beyond the constraints and limitations of stale or sclerosed perspective.

By way of summary, we echo Churchman's basic insight: We are ever deceived, and we are greatly deceived.  We do, indeed, "see through a glass darkly."  Our deception will be with us as long as we live as human beings, chained to the wall of Plato's cave.

The answer is to face of our deception, to look through the eyes of another, to recognize that no singular worldview will suffice; we need to see that there really are no "experts" in the inquiry into human systems dynamics.  We must, again in Churchman's language, become an enemy of our deception, and realize that each of us has "a quirk about the destiny and improvement of the human condition, just as all the rest of humanity has its quirks" Churchman (1979, pp. 213-214).

This "quirk" of which (Churchman speaks) is the key to our particular contribution in this life, our "quirk about the destiny and improvement of the human condition."  As such it is never trivial, but the vision that must live and evolve in spite of the paradox of our deception and enlightenment.  This is the "thought of the heart" that give passion and purpose to our lives, encouraging us, again in Churchman's words, to the "radiant" aspect of our beings, an aspect that is deeply enhanced by our realization of both our deception and our enlightenment."

I note that in Holographic models (based on both String Theory and Quantum Gravity), and in HIOTTOE, dark matter is an emergent property of the information based universe (see Reply #202, among others).  Thus, the factor that the LHC has not yet found any superpartner particle candidates for dark matter (see the linked article); partially helps to make Holographic models and/or HIOTTOE more likely to be correct:

Title: "Nobel-Winning Physicist Worried About 100 Chocolate Coin Wager Over New Particles"

https://gizmodo.com/nobel-winning-physicist-worried-about-100-chocolate-coi-1820180376

Extract: "Despite a tantalizing but ultimately unfounded hint last year, LHC physicists have not found any superpartners. That disappointed some physicists recently interviewed by the New York Times, and the lost hope has been compounded by the continued lack of discovery in dark matter experiments. But it’s possible that the LHC just doesn’t have the energy to create these heavy superpartners."

To me Vipassana is fully in keeping with the scientific method, and thus insights from Vipassana can be used as a 'guarantor' in complex systems (like human society and/or climate change) as discussed by C. West Churchman (see Reply #405) to guard against the deception arising from uncertainty.  In this regards I provide some extract from the linked Wikipedia article entitled: "Saṅkhāra" (see the first image).  Such insights can be used to overcome systemic isolation (including scientific reticence) that leads to human suffering (such as the probable socio-economic collapse circa 2050 associated with human society's inability to take responsibility for such problems as 'over-shoot' and climate change).  Sankara's can also be thought of as seeds of becoming of preconditioned information that diversion from reality thus causing suffering (see the last three images):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sa%E1%B9%85kh%C4%81ra

Extract: "Saṅkhāra (Pali; Sanskrit saṃskāra) is a term figuring prominently in Buddhism. The word means 'that which has been put together' and 'that which puts together'.

In the first (passive) sense, saṅkhāra refers to conditioned phenomena generally but specifically to all mental "dispositions". These are called 'volitional formations' both because they are formed as a result of volition and because they are causes for the arising of future volitional actions. English translations for saṅkhāra in the first sense of the word include 'conditioned things,' 'determinations,' 'fabrications' and 'formations' (or, particularly when referring to mental processes, 'volitional formations').
 
In the second (active) sense of the word, saṅkhāra refers to karma (sankhara-khandha) that leads to conditioned arising, dependent origination.

It is a complex concept, with no single-word English translation, that fuses "object and subject" as interdependent parts of each human's consciousness and epistemological process. It connotes "impression, disposition, conditioning, forming, perfecting in one's mind, influencing one's sensory and conceptual faculty" as well as any "preparation, sacrament" that "impresses, disposes, influences or conditions" how one thinks, conceives or feels.

The Buddha stated that all volitional constructs are conditioned by ignorance (avijja) of impermanence and non-self. It is this ignorance that leads to the origination of the sankharas and ultimately causes human suffering (dukkha).  The cessation of all such sankharas (sabba-saṅkhāra-nirodha) is synonymous with Enlightenment (bodhi), the attainment of nirvana. The end of conditioned arising or dependent origination in the karmic sense (Sankharas), yields the unconditioned phenomenon of nirvana.

As the ignorance conditions the volitional formations, these formations condition, in turn, the consciousness (viññāna). The Buddha elaborated:

'What one intends, what one arranges, and what one obsesses about: This is a support for the stationing of consciousness. There being a support, there is a landing [or: an establishing] of consciousness. When that consciousness lands and grows, there is the production of renewed becoming in the future. When there is the production of renewed becoming in the future, there is future birth, aging & death, sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, & despair. Such is the origination of this entire mass of suffering & stress.'"

The linked reference provides observational evidence that we may live in a Holographic Universe, which by extension supports the possibility of HIOTTOE.

Niayesh Afshordi et al. From Planck Data to Planck Era: Observational Tests of Holographic Cosmology, Physical Review Letters (2017). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.118.041301


http://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.118.041301

The linked article provides some perspective on this research by Afshordi et al. (2017):

Title: "Scientists Find First Observed Evidence That Our Universe May Be a Hologram"

http://bigthink.com/paul-ratner/scientists-find-first-observed-evidence-that-our-universe-may-be-a-hologram

Extract: "The implications of this study could lead the scientists to improved understanding of how time and space were created.

"When we go into this concept of holography, it's a new way of thinking about things. Even the scientists who worked on this for the past 20 years don't have the right tools or the right language to describe what's going on," said Skenderis. "It's a new paradigm for a physical reality."

The study's lead author, Niayesh Afshordi of the Perimeter Institute and the University of Waterlo, expressed a similarly positive sentiment about their finding:

"I would argue this is the simplest theory of the early universe. And so far, this is as simple as it gets. And it could help explain everything we see," Afshordi said."

Edit: See also the linked video entitled: "Niayesh Afshordi: Reflections on Spacetime"



If you don't get anything else from the video, you should get that you should not be surprised if the LHC never finds any massive superpartners.  If this is the case then a Holographic Universe is more likely.

If you have more time/energy, you can pick from the following playlist of associated videos:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkMaaEPd7InK_n87pvo5oVOJp7hN4QsMu

Personally, I liked the following linked video entitled:"Henrique Gomes: Timeless quantum gravity: bubbles in shape space."

For those who liked the Gomes video in my last link, I provide the following linked open access reference:

Henrique Gomes (2017), "Quantum gravity in timeless configuration space", arXiv:1706.08875v3

https://arxiv.org/abs/1706.08875

Abstract: "On the path towards quantum gravity, we find friction between temporal relations in quantum mechanics (QM) (where they are fixed and field-independent), and in general relativity (where they are field-dependent and dynamic). This paper aims to attenuate that friction, by encoding gravity in the timeless configuration space of spatial fields with dynamics given by a path integral. The framework demands that boundary conditions for this path integral be uniquely given, but unlike other approaches where they are prescribed --- such as the no-boundary and the tunneling proposals --- here I postulate basic principles to identify boundary conditions in a large class of theories. Uniqueness arises only if a reduced configuration space can be defined and if it has a profoundly asymmetric fundamental structure. These requirements place strong restrictions on the field and symmetry content of theories encompassed here; shape dynamics is one such theory. Also as in other boundary proposals, Time, including space-time, emerges as an effective concept; valid for certain curves in configuration space but not assumed from the start. When some such notion of time becomes available, conservation of (positive) probability currents ensues. I show that, in the appropriate limits, a Schroedinger equation dictates the evolution of weakly coupled source fields on a classical gravitational background. Due to the asymmetry of reduced configuration space, these probabilities and currents avoid a known difficulty of standard WKB approximations for Wheeler DeWitt in minisuperspace: the selection of a unique Hamilton-Jacobi solution to serve as background. I illustrate these constructions with a simple example of a full quantum gravitational theory (i.e. not in minisuperspace) for which the formalism is applicable, and give a formula for calculating gravitational semi-classical relative probabilities in it."

As measurability plays an important role in distinguishing HIOTTOE from other theories (such as quantum gravity), I provide the following linked reference on quantum steerability based on joint measurability:

Zhihua Chen, Xiangjun Ye & Shao-Ming Fei (2017), "Quantum steerability based on joint measurability", Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 15822, doi:10.1038/s41598-017-15910-8

http://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-15910-8

Abstract: "Occupying a position between entanglement and Bell nonlocality, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering has attracted increasing attention in recent years. Many criteria have been proposed and experimentally implemented to characterize EPR-steering. Nevertheless, only a few results are available to quantify steerability using analytical results. In this work, we propose a method for quantifying the steerability in two-qubit quantum states in the two-setting EPR-steering scenario, using the connection between joint measurability and steerability. We derive an analytical formula for the steerability of a class of X-states. The sufficient and necessary conditions for two-setting EPR-steering are presented. Based on these results, a class of asymmetric states, namely, one-way steerable states, are obtained."

I suspect that the promising developments in quantum information science associated with the linked references could eventually lead to an acceleration of progress of theories of quantum gravity and a better understanding of the Holographic Universe:

Ehud Altman and Ronen Vosk (2015), "Universal dynamics and renormalization in many body localized systems", arXiv:1408.2834v1

https://arxiv.org/pdf/1408.2834.pdf

Extract: "We have reviewed the recent progress made in understanding the dynamics in many-body localized systems. The natural setting for the discussion were closed quantum systems with non-vanishing and even high energy density, where eigenstates of thermalizing systems would show volume law entanglement. In contrast eigenstates of many-body localized systems exhibit area-law entanglement akin to quantum ground states. We have shown how this feature of the localized phase enables efficient computation and facilitates the use of powerful theoretical approaches to describe the dynamics. In particular, we reviewed a renormalization group approach, useful for capturing universal dynamics controlled by critical points which separate distinct localized phases.

A simple phenomenological description in terms of local conserved quantities emerges naturally from the RG approach. Although the integrals of motion are not strictly local, we have shown that they are addressable, and quantum coherence stored in a single integral of motion can be retrieved, after arbitrary long time, in a spin echo protocol applied to strictly local degrees of freedom. The persistence of quantum coherence in local degrees of freedom can be regarded as a direct test of many-body localization, which would distinguish this phase from a classical glass.

It is important for us to emphasize that in spite of the signi_cant progress, made over the last few years, understanding of some of the basic issues is still very much lacking.  For example, there is still title understanding of the critical point, or even if there is a critical point, which controls the many-body localization transition. It is also not clear if localization is the only way to establish non thermalizing phases in a generic way or if there are other intriguing possibilities which do not involve localization in real space. To gain deeper insight into these issues may require the development of novel theoretical approaches. Finally, and most importantly, physical systems which would allow systematic experimental investigation of many-body localization phenomena need to be identified."

The following references demonstrate that the concept of holographic dark energy is proving very useful for the calibration of different models from string theory, general relativity (and presumably shape dynamics), cosmology, and quantum gravity, to rapidly converge on mathematics that may soon exceed the success of the Standard Model, w.r.t. matching the observed universe.  I believe that this progress is compatible with HIOTTOE, and will support Roger Penrose's observations cited in my last post (about CCC).

Orlando Luongo (2017), "A Thermodynamic Approach to Holographic Dark Energy", Advances in High Energy Physics, Volume 2017, Article ID 1424503, 11 pages, https://doi.org/10.1155/2017/1424503

Abstract: "We propose a method to relate the holographic minimal information density to de Broglie’s wavelength at a given universe temperature T. To figure this out, we assume that the thermal length of massive and massless constituents represents the cut-off scale of the holographic principle. To perform our analysis, we suppose two plausible universe volumes, that is, the adiabatic and the horizon volumes, that is, ___ and ____, respectively, assuming zero spatial curvature. With these choices in mind, we evaluate the thermal lengths for massive and massless particles and we thus find two cosmological models associated with late and early cosmological epochs. We demonstrate that both models depend upon a free term beta which enters the temperature parametrization in terms of the redshift z. For the two treatments, we show evolving dark energy terms which can be compared with the __CDM quintessence paradigm when the barotropic factor takes the formal values ___ and ___, respectively, for late and early eras. From our analyses, we nominate the two models as viable alternatives to dark energy determined from thermodynamics in the field of the holographic principle."

Abstract: "We propose the generalized holographic dark energy model where the infrared cutoff is identified with the combination of the FRW universe parameters: the Hubble rate, particle and future horizons, cosmological constant, the universe lifetime (if finite) and their derivatives. It is demonstrated that with the corresponding choice of the cutoff one can map such holographic dark energy to modified gravity or gravity with a general fluid. Explicitly, F(R) gravity and the general perfect fluid are worked out in detail and the corresponding infrared cutoff is found. Using this correspondence, we get realistic inflation or viable dark energy or a unified inflationary-dark energy universe in terms of covariant holographic dark energy."

Abstract: "An attempt has been taken to study the minimally interacting fields, dark matter and holographic dark energy in scalar tensor theory formulated by Saez and Ballester. The exact solution of the field equations is obtained by using the fact that the scalar expansion of the universe is proportional to the shear scalar. Some physical and geometrical aspects of the model are also discussed."

https://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.96.043520

Abstract: "We search for sterile neutrinos in the holographic dark energy cosmology by using the latest observational data. To perform the analysis, we employ the current cosmological observations, including the cosmic microwave background temperature power spectrum data from the Planck mission, the baryon acoustic oscillation measurements, the type Ia supernova data, the redshift space distortion measurements, the shear data of weak lensing observation, the Planck lensing measurement, and the latest direct measurement of H0 as well. We show that, compared to the ΛCDM cosmology, the holographic dark energy cosmology with sterile neutrinos can relieve the tension between the Planck observation and the direct measurement of H0 much better. Once we include the H0 measurement in the global fit, we find that the hint of the existence of sterile neutrinos in the holographic dark energy cosmology can be given. Under the constraint of the all-data combination, we obtain Neff=3.76±0.26 and meffν,sterile<0.215  eV, indicating that the detection of ΔNeff>0 in the holographic dark energy cosmology is at the 2.75σ level and the massless or very light sterile neutrino is favored by the current observations."

Abstract: "In the Brans–Dicke cosmology framework, we study holographic dark energy models with interaction and with power-law and logarithmic entropy corrections for different cutoffs. We consider conditions on the Brans–Dicke parameter compared with the conditions for the acceleration and phantom phases to show which entropy-corrected models can have acceleration and a phantom phase in the early Universe and at the present. Moreover, we determine which of the considered models are classically stable and which are unstable in early times and at the present."

Not to be overly simplistic, but frame theory is increasingly used for signal processing, and just as frame theory can be used to help explain how images come into focus (see image from the linked pdf), information theory can be used to explain how individual human personalities come into focus and how individual universes come into focus from HIOTTOE's free-will information network:

Feel free to correct me, but I have not seen this talk on the forum and this seems like an appropriate thread?

Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality | Anil Seth
Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality."


Three implications, in short:
1. Just as we can misperceive the world, we can misperceive ourselves.
2. What it means to be me, cannot be reduced to, or uploaded to, a software program running on a robot, however smart or sophisticated.
3. Our own individual inner universe, our way of beeing conscious, is just one possible way of beeing conscious.

And he ends with:
With a greater sense of understanding, comes a greater sense of wonder and a greater realization, that we are part of and not apart from, the rest of nature. And when the end of consciousness comes, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Nothing at all.

We appear to be getting closer to determining how matrices/frames can be used to mathematically correlate the observed holographic universe to the quantum behavior of space-time including possibly to networks like HIOTTOE:

Title: "Why an Old Theory of Everything Is Gaining New Life"

https://www.wired.com/story/why-an-old-theory-of-everything-is-gaining-new-life/

Extract: "But not only does asymptotic safety provide a link between testable low energies and inaccessible high energies—as the above examples demonstrate—the approach is also not necessarily in conflict with other ways of quantizing gravity. That’s because the extrapolation central to asymptotic safety does not rule out that a more fundamental description of space-time—for example, with strings or networks—emerges at high energies. Far from being disappointing, asymptotic safety might allow us to finally connect the known universe to the quantum behavior of space-time."

See also:

Title: "How Quantum Pairs Stitch Space-Time"

https://www.quantamagazine.org/tensor-networks-and-entanglement-20150428/

Extract: "Swingle is one of a growing number of physicists who see the value in adapting tensor networks to cosmology. Among other benefits, it could help resolve an ongoing debate about the nature of space-time itself. According to John Preskill, the Richard P. Feynman professor of theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, many physicists have suspected a deep connection between quantum entanglement — the “spooky action at a distance” that so vexed Albert Einstein — and space-time geometry at the smallest scales since the physicist John Wheeler first described the latter as a bubbly, frothy foam six decades ago. “If you probe geometry at scales comparable to the Planck scale” — the shortest possible distance — “it looks less and less like space-time,” said Preskill. “It’s not really geometry anymore. It’s something else, an emergent thing [that arises] from something more fundamental.”"

The linked article (& associated reference) links human consciousness to entropy.  Under HIOTTOE consciousness is not a fundamental property but is derived from signals (that is subject to entropy) within a free-will information network:

Title: “New Study Links Human Consciousness to a Law That Governs the Universe”

https://futurism.com/new-study-links-human-consciousness-law-governs-universe/

Extract: “According to a team of researchers from France and Canada, our brains might produce consciousness as something of a side effect of increasing entropy, a process that has been taking place throughout the universe since the Big Bang.

The researchers found that the participants’ brains displayed higher entropy when fully conscious. “We find a surprisingly simple result: normal wakeful states are characterized by the greatest number of possible configurations of interactions between brain networks, representing highest entropy values,” the team wrote in the study.”

See also:

R. Guevara Erra et al (2018), “Towards a statistical mechanics of consciousness: maximization of number of connections is associated with conscious awareness”, arXiv:1606.00821v2

https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.00821

Abstract: “It has been said that complexity lies between order and disorder. In the case of brain activity, and physiology in general, complexity issues are being considered with increased emphasis. We sought to identify features of brain organization that are optimal for sensory processing, and that may guide the emergence of cognition and consciousness, by analysing neurophysiological recordings in conscious and unconscious states. We find a surprisingly simple result: normal wakeful states are characterised by the greatest number of possible configurations of interactions between brain networks, representing highest entropy values. Therefore, the information content is larger in the network associated to conscious states, suggesting that consciousness could be the result of an optimization of information processing. These findings encapsulate three main current theories of cognition, as discussed in the text, and more specifically the conceptualization of consciousness in terms of brain complexity. We hope our study represents the preliminary attempt at finding organising principles of brain function that will help to guide in a more formal sense inquiry into how consciousness arises from the organization of matter.”

Understanding uncertainty can help to create a more accurate representation of the world around us:

Title: "'I don’t know': Why uncertainty is the best decision-making tool"

http://bigthink.com/videos/annie-duke-make-smarter-decisions-by-embracing-uncertainty

Extract: "In the earliest stages of our educations it gets drilled into us that certainty is good, and phrases like "I don't know" or "I'm not sure" are lesser ways of thinking. That's a shame, says former World Series poker champion and self-professed "uncertainty evangelist" Annie Duke: being uncertain is a much more accurate representation of the world than concrete certainty—there is just too much blind luck in the mix. Most often we're dealing with probability, not premonition, but the more accurate you make your worldview, the better your predictions will turn out. Embracing what you don't know can help you make surer bets on the future. Here, Duke gives an eye-opening lesson on how to recalibrate your beliefs, the difference between confidence and certainty, and how to use uncertainty to cultivate flexible thinking, smarter decision-making, and more productive collaboration. Annie Duke is the author of Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don't Have All the Facts."

The second cited reference indicates that the holographic principle (and by extension HIOTTOE) can be used to provide alternate values for the Hubble Constant, as new finding discussed in the first reference indicate that projections using the current Standard Model cannot accurately match recent observational measurements:

Title: "Improved Hubble Yardstick Gives Fresh Evidence for New Physics in the Universe"

https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/improved-hubble-yardstick-gives-fresh-evidence-for-new-physics-in-the-universe

Extract: "Astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to make the most precise measurements of the expansion rate of the universe since it was first calculated nearly a century ago. Intriguingly, the results are forcing astronomers to consider that they may be seeing evidence of something unexpected at work in the universe.

That's because the latest Hubble finding confirms a nagging discrepancy showing the universe to be expanding faster now than was expected from its trajectory seen shortly after the big bang. Researchers suggest that there may be new physics to explain the inconsistency."

See also:

José M. Isidro ID and Pedro Fernández de Córdoba (2018), "On the Holographic Bound in Newtonian Cosmology", Entropy, 20, 83; doi:10.3390/e20020083

Abstract: "The holographic principle sets an upper bound on the total (Boltzmann) entropy content of the Universe at around 10123kB (kB being Boltzmann’s constant). In this work we point out the existence of a remarkable duality between nonrelativistic quantum mechanics on the one hand, and Newtonian cosmology on the other. Specifically, nonrelativistic quantum mechanics has a quantum probability fluid that exactly mimics the behaviour of the cosmological fluid, the latter considered in the Newtonian approximation. One proves that the equations governing the cosmological fluid (the Euler equation and the continuity equation) become the very equations that govern the quantum probability fluid after applying the Madelung transformation to the Schroedinger wavefunction. Under the assumption that gravitational equipotential surfaces can be identified with isoentropic surfaces, this model allows for a simple computation of the gravitational entropy of a Newtonian Universe. In a first approximation, we model the cosmological fluid as the quantum probability fluid of free Schroedinger waves. We find that this model Universe saturates the holographic bound. As a second approximation, we include the Hubble expansion of the galaxies. The corresponding Schroedinger waves lead to a value of the entropy lying three orders of magnitude below the holographic bound. Current work on a fully relativistic extension of our present model can be expected to yield results in even better agreement with empirical estimates of the entropy of the Universe."

The HIOTTOE also assumes that the free-will information network can be interpreted as a multiverse:

Title: "Stephen Hawking’s last paper may lead to proof of a multiverse"

https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/stephen-hawking-multiverse/

Extract: "Stephen Hawking may have passed away, but his legacy of scientific discovery will live on, and his final paper has the potential to lay the groundwork for one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 21st century. The Sunday Times reports that the paper, entitled “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation,” details a means by which scientists could discover a parallel universe.

The paper had its latest revisions approved on March 4 — 10 days before Hawking’s death. “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation” is a mathematical paper that sets out to find proof of multiverse theory, which argues that there are many other universes existing alongside our own.

Thomas Hertog, who co-wrote the paper with Hawking, said that their goal was “to transform the idea of a multiverse into a testable scientific framework.” Hertog said that he submitted the latest version of the paper after discussing it with Hawking in order to ensure he approved of everything."

The HIOTTOE answer the question at the end of the linked article is: "Freewill, and the choices made by the numerous interconnected points of freewill within the associated information network, are real":

Title: "A neuroscientist explains why reality may just be a hallucination"

http://www.businessinsider.com/neuroscientist-explains-why-reality-hallucination-meaning-2018-3

Extract: "But what we experience as being real is a construction of the brain. So when I experience a particular color, that doesn't mean that color exists out there in the universe, that a red mug is actually painted some color that exists independently of my mind and brain. No, red is something that my brain constructs in order to interpret visual information. This leads to the question, is anything real? Is anything really there?"

As per HIOTTOE, the average number of connections between dimples in a freewill information network is equal to the square root of the fine-structure constant plus 1, the following research can be used to better calibrate HIOTTOE models of the multiverse (including better approximations of holographic models of the multiverse):

Richard H. Parker et al. (13 Apr 2018), "Measurement of the fine-structure constant as a test of the Standard Model", Science , Vol. 360, Issue 6385, pp. 191-195, DOI: 10.1126/science.aap7706

http://science.sciencemag.org/content/360/6385/191.full

Extract: "Refining the fine-structure constant

The fine-structure constant, α, is a dimensionless constant that characterizes the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between charged elementary particles. Related by four fundamental constants, a precise determination of α allows for a test of the Standard Model of particle physics. Parker et al. used matter-wave interferometry with a cloud of cesium atoms to make the most accurate measurement of α to date. Determining the value of α to an accuracy of better than 1 part per billion provides an independent method for testing the accuracy of quantum electrodynamics and the Standard Model. It may also enable searches of the so-called “dark sector” for explanations of dark matter."

See also:

Title: "Fine-structure constant"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fine-structure_constant

Extract: "The fine-structure constant, α, has several physical interpretations. α is:
•   The square of the ratio of the elementary charge to the Planck charge
 …
In the early 21st century, multiple physicists, including Stephen Hawking in his book A Brief History of Time, began exploring the idea of a multiverse, and the fine-structure constant was one of several universal constants that suggested the idea of a fine-tuned universe."
&

Title: "Measurement of the fine-structure constant casts doubt on dark photon theories"

https://phys.org/news/2018-04-fine-structure-constant-dark-photon-theories.html

Extract: " The researchers report that the number they calculated was closely matched the theory, which offers some confirmation of theories that suggest electrons are not made up of smaller, unknown particles. But it also casts doubt on theories surrounding the existence of dark photons.

Dark photons, theory has suggested, are particles nearly identical to photons, but have mass that would allow them to interact with other particles. If proof could be found of their existence, it would bolster theories regarding dark matter in general, because dark matter theory suggests they would be the force carrier. On the bright side, because the number they calculated was close to that theorized, but not exact, there is still room for other particle theories to explain the discrepancy."

With regards to overcoming systemic isolation, simply put: getter freedom requires greater responsibility, such as by the People Achieving Change Together, or P.A.C.T, program cited in the linked article.

Please note that one finding of the cited test is that if humans have free will then so do quantum particles; and if one believes the Holographic Principle then these findings indicate that HIOTTOE's free will information network must be the basis for existence:

Title: "Biggest Test Yet Shows Einstein Was Wrong About 'Spooky Action at a Distance'"

https://www.livescience.com/62523-physicists-crowdsource-a-reality-check.html

This introduces the likelihood of two mind-bending scenarios: Either our observations of the world actually change it, or particles are communicating with each other in some manner that we can't see or influence.

"Or possibly both," Mitchell added.

The experiments also demonstrated an intriguing similarity between humans and quantum particles, related to randomness and free will. If the Bell tests' human-influenced measurements were truly random — not influenced by the entangled particles themselves — then the behaviors of both humans and particles were random, Mitchell explained.

"If we are free, so are they," he said."

While the following series of quotes could be posted into many different threads, if am posting them here in the 'System Isolation' thread with the wish that all beings may be liberated:

The first image indicates that without the right effort to understand the nature of freewill one can be imprisoned (or systemically isolated) by the craving for security.

The second image indicates that true self-understanding is the beginning of wisdom.

The third image indicates that wisdom is the science of all sciences.

The fourth image indicates that direct knowledge of truth without precondition is power.

The following images are a continuation of my last post:

The first image indicates that while know grants the power to do good or evil, knowledge itself is not good or evil.

The second image indicates that as there are two sides to a coin, the steady application of misrepresentation also grants power (as does knowledge).

The third image indicates that on the path to wisdom one should rely on true facts and should challenge assertions.

The fourth image indicates that true knowledge entails both effort and compassion to others (duty):

This post is a continuation of my last two posts:

The first image indicates that if one does not take right action if means that one does not truly know one's freewill.

The second image indicates that 'Knowledge is power only if man knows what facts not to bother with'.

The third image indicates that social science is fundamentally concerned with worldly power.

The fourth image is a call for scientists to resist the misrepresentation of truth:

To state the obvious, HIOTTOE theory provides unique insights into entanglement Hamiltonians (see earlier posts), thus the cited development may accelerate the practical use of HIOTTOE:

Title: "Turning entanglement upside down"

https://phys.org/news/2018-05-entanglement-upside.html

A team of physicists from ICTP-Trieste and IQOQI-Innsbruck has come up with a surprisingly simple idea to investigate quantum entanglement of many particles. Instead of digging deep into the properties of quantum wave functions, which are notoriously hard to experimentally access, they propose to realize physical systems governed by the corresponding entanglement Hamiltonians. By doing so, entanglement properties of the original problem of interest become accessible via well-established tools.

just one thing caught my eyes:

no new action is not a dicision?

i disagree, one of the most difficult decisions to pull through is to sit put and calm watching the chaos around you and do nothing until the moment is right so not to waist energy before the right time has come.

this especially applies where physical life and economical survival are at steak. hyperactivity can enlarge the already existing holes to a size and depth from where it gets almost impossible to recover.

hope i could make myself understood, in short, "NOT TO ACT" can be a valid decision as well an a very wise one at times.

no new action is not a dicision?

i disagree, one of the most difficult decisions to pull through is to sit put and calm watching the chaos around you and do nothing until the moment is right so not to waist energy before the right time has come.

this especially applies where physical life and economical survival are at steak. hyperactivity can enlarge the already existing holes to a size and depth from where it gets almost impossible to recover.

hope i could make myself understood, in short, "NOT TO ACT" can be a valid decision as well an a very wise one at times.

It takes right effort "NOT TO ACT" on preconditioning, and in this sense not acting is an action (or an expression of freewill).

In many of my posts I have discussed the differences between 'Survival of the Fittest' type thinking and 'Natural Selection', but I am under the impression that many readers still do not appreciate the difference.  Therefore, here I note that to me 'Survival of the Fittest' assumes a preconditioned value function for what is good; while 'Natural Selection' does not make any such assumption of a preconditioned value function, but rather only that the selection follow the laws of nature/reality.

In this sense the 1800's concept of Social Darwinism presumes that the 'best' people become dominate, as assumed by many racists, because the 'pure people' pre-determine what is 'best'.  While in HIOTTOE, the laws of nature/reality are based only on freewill operating within a freewill information network.  Thus in HIOTTOE, the configuration of the freewill information network that we observe is evolved based on natural selection as selected by the over 1023 dimples/points of freewill within our network.

Title: "Social Darwinism"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Darwinism

Extract: "The term Social Darwinism is used to refer to various ways of thinking and theories that emerged in the second half of the 19th century and tried to apply the evolutionary concept of natural selection to human society.

Spencer supported laissez-faire capitalism on the basis of his Lamarckian belief that struggle for survival spurred self-improvement which could be inherited. An important proponent in Germany was Ernst Haeckel, who popularized Darwin's thought (and personal interpretation of it) and used it as well to contribute to a new creed, the monist movement."

I have found that the writings of Humberto Maturana shed considerable insight into this topic, in particular a paper titled "The Origin of Species by Natural Drift" (2000). Maturana is Chilean but his work has been widely translated. I don't have a link to the translation handy I'm afraid, however here is one that addresses his perspective and workhttps://philosophychange.wordpress.com/2014/05/02/humberto-maturanas-view-on-the-theory-of-evolution-from-autopoiesis-to-natural-drift-metaphor/.

More evidence that the Standard Model is not a Theory of Everything:

Title: "Bizarre Particles Keep Flying Out of Antarctica’s Ice, and They Might Shatter Modern Physics"

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/bizarre-particles-keep-flying-out-of-antarcticas-ice-and-they-might-shatter-modern-physics/

Extract: "And, combining the IceCube and ANITA data sets, the Penn State researchers calculated that, whatever particle is bursting up from the Earth, it has much less than a 1-in-3.5 million chance of being part of the Standard Model. (In technical, statistical terms, their results had confidences of 5.8 and 7.0 sigma, depending on which of their calculations you’re looking at.)"

Fox et al. (2018), "The ANITA Anomalous Events as Signatures of a Beyond Standard Model Particle, and Supporting Observations from IceCube", arXiv:1809.09615v1

https://arxiv.org/pdf/1809.09615.pdf

Abstract: "The ANITA collaboration have reported observation of two anomalous events that appear to be "cr ~ 0:6 EeV cosmic ray showers emerging from the Earth with exit angles of 27_ and 35_, respectively. While EeV-scale upgoing showers have been anticipated as a result of astrophysical tau neutrinos converting to tau leptons during Earth passage, the observed exit angles are much steeper than expected in Standard Model (SM) scenarios. Indeed, under conservative extrapolations of the SM interactions, there is no particle that can propagate through the Earth with probability p > 10-6 at these energies and exit angles. We explore here whether \beyond the Standard Model" (BSM) particles are required to explain the ANITA events, if correctly interpreted, and conclude that they are. Seeking confirmation or refutation of the physical phenomenon of sub-EeV Earth-emergent cosmic rays in data from other facilities, we _nd support for the reality of the ANITA events, and three candidate analog events, among the Extremely High Energy Northern Track neutrinos of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. Properties of the implied BSM particle are anticipated, at least in part, by those predicted for the \stau" slepton (~_R) in some supersymmetric models of the fundamental interactions, wherein the stau manifests as the next-to-lowest mass supersymmetric partner particle."

The linked article and associated reference demonstrates that very simple quantum systems can undergo self-replication.  This is consistent with HIOTTOE's concept of timeless evolution within a freewill information network.

Title: "Quantum Artificial Life Created for First Time"

https://www.newsweek.com/quantum-artificial-life-created-first-time-1163859

Extract: "In a study published in Scientific Reports, Lucas Lamata and colleagues from Spain’s University of the Basque Country developed an algorithm built on theoretical work set out in 2015. At that time, the team wanted to find out what the minimum size of a system was that could undergo self-replication—a hallmark of life."

While the linked research confirms that a single concrete reality does not exist; HIOTTOE's timelessly evolved free-will information network remains plausible as it posits that free-will creates a constantly changing timeless illusion of reality (rupa):

Unlocking the "Mystery" of Consciousness

https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/unlocking-the-mystery-of-consciousness/

Quote
Explaining it requires neither supernatural intervention nor any new fundamental physics
...
Over the last few years, we have tried to “demystify” primary consciousness by combining neural and philosophical aspects of the problem into a unified view of how feelings are created in a naturally biological way. Our analysis leads us to the view that the puzzle of consciousness and the explanatory gap actually has two related aspects: an ontological aspect and an epistemic aspect and that both have a natural and scientific explanation.

In order to challenge the Standard Model requires data with at least a six standard deviation significance rather than a 4.2 sigma significance; however, data from the ATLAS experiment (that is currently being analyzed) will either push these preliminary findings over the six sigma threshold, or alternately will show a null result.  Thus in a few months we should know whether, or not, the Standard Model needs to be modified, replaced, or left as is:

Title: "Mystery particle spotted? Discovery would require physics so weird that nobody has even thought of it"

http://theconversation.com/mystery-particle-spotted-discovery-would-require-physics-so-weird-that-nobody-has-even-thought-of-it-106260

Extract: "The new result – consisting of a mysterious bump in the data at 28 GeV (a unit of energy) – has been published as a preprint on ArXiv. It is not yet in a peer-reviewed journal – but that’s not a big issue. The LHC collaborations have very tight internal review procedures, and we can be confident that the authors have done the sums correctly when they report a “4.2 standard deviation significance”. That means that the probability of getting a peak this big by chance – created by random noise in the data rather than a real particle – is only 0.0013%. That’s tiny – 13 in a million. So it seems like it must a real event rather than random noise – but nobody’s opening the champagne yet."

Infinite-Dimensional Symmetry Opens Up Possibility of a New Physics—and New Particles
Quote
For a half-century, physicists have been trying to construct a theory that unites all four fundamental forces of nature, describes the known elementary particles and predicts the existence of new ones. So far, these attempts have not found experimental confirmation, and the Standard Model—an incomplete, but surprisingly effective theoretical construct—is still the best description of the quantum world. In a recent paper in Physical Review Letters, Prof. Krzysztof Meissner from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, and Prof. Hermann Nicolai from the Max-Planck-Institut für Gravitationsphysik in Potsdam have presented a new scheme generalizing the Standard Model that incorporates gravitation into the description. The new model applies a kind of symmetry not previously used in the description of elementary particles.

... "For the first time, we have a scheme that precisely anticipates the composition of the fermions in the Standard Model—quarks and leptons—and does so with the proper electric charges. At the same time it includes gravity into the description. It is a huge surprise that the proper symmetry is the staggeringly huge symmetry group E10, virtually unknown mathematically. If further work confirms the role of this group, that will mean a radical change in our knowledge of the symmetries of nature," Prof. Meissner says.

Crossposting this here, wasn't appreciated it the "What's True" thread although I thought it was well suited there. An old one. PDF attached to this post:
"One benefit of switching humanity to a correct perception of the world is the resulting joy of discovering the mental nature of the Universe. We have no idea what this mental nature implies,
but — the great thing is — it is true. Beyond the acquisition of this perception, physics can no longer help. You may descend into solipsism, expand to deism, or something else if you can justify it — just don’t ask physics for help.

There is another benefit of seeing the world as quantum mechanical: someone who has learned to accept that nothing exists but observations is far ahead of peers who stumble through physics hoping to find out ‘what things are’. If we can ‘pull a Galileo,’ and get people believing the truth, they will find physics a breeze.

The Universe is immaterial — mental
and spiritual. Live, and enjoy. "

AbruptSLR elevated ASIF considerably. His posts revealed a great mind. AbruptSLR will be missed.

Our Universe: An Expanding Bubble In an Extra Dimension
https://phys.org/news/2018-12-universe-extra-dimension.html

Quote
Uppsala University researchers have devised a new model for the universe – one that may solve the enigma of dark energy. Their new article, published in Physical Review Letters, proposes a new structural concept, including dark energy, for a universe that rides on an expanding bubble in an additional dimension.

... In their article, the scientists propose a new model with dark energy and our universe riding on an expanding bubble in an extra dimension. The whole universe is accommodated on the edge of this expanding bubble. All existing matter in the universe corresponds to the ends of strings that extend out into the extra dimension. The researchers also show that expanding bubbles of this kind can come into existence within the framework of string theory. It is conceivable that there are more bubbles than ours, corresponding to other universes.



Souvik Banerjee et al. Emergent de Sitter Cosmology from Decaying Anti–de Sitter Space, Physical Review Letters (2018)

ABSTRACT:

Recent developments in string compactifications demonstrate obstructions to the simplest constructions of low energy cosmologies with positive vacuum energy. The existence of obstacles to creating scale-separated de Sitter solutions indicates a UV/IR puzzle for embedding cosmological vacua in a unitary theory of quantum gravity. Motivated by this puzzle, we propose an embedding of positive energy Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker cosmology within string theory. Our proposal involves confining 4D gravity on a brane which mediates the decay from a nonsupersymmetric five-dimensional anti–de Sitter false vacuum to a true vacuum. In this way, it is natural for a 4D observer to experience an effective positive cosmological constant coupled to matter and radiation, avoiding the need for scale separation or a fundamental de Sitter vacuum.
