Different Realities

Have been fascinated why so many people have different realities about what is actually happening around us. Especially the left who I was part of and am now am probably considered right wing which is strange to me as I still have my liberal beliefs.

Was just checking about epistemology philosophers because of the following cartoon

 This led me to the following youtube which talked about the word know and how it's in nearly all languages

The reason I am posting is that I had a revelation when thinking about the description of the differences between the words know and believe. I think a significant difference in the different realities is the people that don't have much belief in anything think that they know that certain faction is of a certain type. So get have actions on incorrect statements.

I am sure I need to flesh this out and this may be only part of the reason but need to document it before I lose the idea.

Hieroglyphics memes and conciousness

Had a revelation today thinking how the two civilizations that seemed very locked into the different realms of consciousness used hieroglyphics as communication.

Through my research on consciousness, I keep coming back to Mayan and Egyptians. As have found that they were much more advance in traveling to other realms described in DMT trips.

The question I have been trying to answer is why people who use meme warfare have much more luck than normal people arguing on the internet. One of my main pillars of understanding reality is that language defines the way you can think and what you can think about. But the use of memes destroys that limitation which gives you more power in terms of communication and understanding. There is a significant amount of research on how visualizing techniques help in performance and am speculating that people who visualize using means affect our reality more them people arguing it verbally or in written format. Especially when the written word is limited to 140 characters

I find it interesting the more advanced that we see more people seem using memes and emojis in their communication. It's like moving away from written communication to visual communication.

Like who gets information from blogs now its alls seems to be from Twitter,  Reddit, youtube or facebook now.

Questions to be Answered

I have been on an amazing journey in the last few months and have answered a lot of questions that I have had. Part of the experience was meditating at beaches and at one of largest budhist temples in the southern hemisphere.  My growth was significantly mainly from Jordan Peterson and Thomas Cambell. I now understand how monks can easily be content in a life based on meditation or prayers.

The biggest question I had going into this year was why so many religions and beliefs work if only one religion is true. I have found a biological anwer which I feel has malleable answers that work for me.

Was meditating today thought about posting again and because I have started the kaizen technique of removing procrastination, so will twrite more frequently by doing small posts.

These are main questions that I will take up my pondering in the next stage of my journey.

How does the Schumann resonances affect collective conciousness and is the recorded changes over the last few years a sign of an ascending process?

What have been the main changes in conciousness that has occurred since 2012 ?

What is the physical cause of mandella affect?

What level in the heirarchy are the beings seen in DMT experience ?

Why is love so important when Monroe also said that parents love is used for energy.

Are the TPTB more focused on creating more emotional energy or power?

Am I going crazy?

If we do live in a artificial simulation would life be better if we just take the blue pill.

Jacobs ladders seems to imply reincarnation and removal of purgatory from bible effect on christianity.

Why are the civilizations based on abrahmic religions so dominant?

Different Movies

Amazing how the attention of people are still focused on totally different areas and based on my understanding the Daily Kos crowd are still way off. We have totally different views of how Russia affected the US election and what are the biggest threats to society going forward.

So why are intelligent people so different in their understanding of the reality of major events that are happening around us.

I have been connected to the internet since the late eighties when was a regular reader on USENET. So one of my major skills is accessing information on the internet. Would easily meet the 10,000-hour rule. I have also moved between sources when I feel them match my world views or understanding of reality.  Now it seems most of my trusted sources seem to all has taken DMT or Psilocybin.  I also seem to get more meaning by looking into clouds. So I could be defined as having my head in the clouds

For me, the possible reasons could be for people not seeing what I can see

  • Its too much work to question what is being fed by MSM so keep with that narrative
  • Some people don't have the frame or tools to be able to discern what they read or see in front of them
  • Cognitive Dissonance is keeping people in the same frame of thought and so disregarding information that questions it.
  • Don't bite the hand the feeds you, like Cypher in Matrix rather live in fake world than reality
  • Our reality are based on Yin/Yan so there have to be opposite views and due to complexity it has become more noticeable now

For me, it's much worse than it ever has been before and spiraling even fast in how different we are. Personally, I think is something to do with our linked consciousness which I still have not been abel to discern.

Mindgamers Movie

Want to document stuff about the mindgamers movie as feel it has something important for me to distil but am still not sure what it is. It also builds on frames I am trying to get an understanding of consciousness and its link to quantum physics. I am more inclined to the idea that stories and movies are the best way to acquire frames to expand your consciousness so are watching films that I want more understanding off.

The film was not a good experience, I still don't get the plot and it wasn't an interesting experience but it was worth my time. I have now read that it's supposed to be a puzzle or us to work out. I find puzzles disturbing that's why don't do them or look for cheats in video games

The main ideas I want to flesh out of this movie are

  • What are the physics and origins of consciousness
  • The superposition principle
  • All matter is nothing but vibration until it collides with human consciousness
  • My mind only exists because another consciousness is observing me, and another observing that.
  • Infinite numbers of observers.  Or, there's just one overarching consciousness observing everything. The multiverse theory demands an infinite number of observers. My explanation requires only one.
  • There is no end to existence, merely an infinite shift to another reality. If you end this outcome, another will be forced into existence. So if we choose to collapse one reality, to bring it down, the other will be forced into existence. An extension of...The lovely Schrodinger.

I now have realized that the film was based on multiverse theory with an ability to be able to merge different realities to one that is optimal to the person controlling the possible outcomes through a quantum computer. I think I would have been more interested in a film based on how bringing other minds into reality by the observation of other consciousness and its all sourced from one consciousness.

I used to flip coins based on major decision based on multiverse theory as know based on our past we are biased to certain choices so if flip a coin better chance to a better outcome which I am living now. But I do worry about all the other realities that I would be suffering in like clones of Alfred in the film prestige

Broaden Understanding of Reality through new Words

This morning while contemplating hot to understand conciousness was thinking would not be able to do it with current tools so need to expand on it.

Early on in like I read a preface to a C++ book which said that language limits the way you think and what you can think about. Interesting today is the first time realised that object orientated programming is based on Bertrand Russell philosophies but that is another story.

So I had a revelation this morning that the english language does not have the required words to explain conciousness properly so will need to use either memes or words from other languages to get a better understanding. So this post I will continuelly update it with words and images that may help me to a better understanding of conciousness

Meditation and Breathing

My previous post was talking about using meditation to feel the now by using all of my known senses. I know feel that this approach must have a purpose in which I am still yet to articulate but feel true to me so must have value to me.

I have now realised that focusing on the breath is a way of getting into a state that removes all senses from awareness so the background noise can start to filter into our being or able to getting into a dream like state which is starting to manifest itself for me.

I am guessing the breath being so natural means it tricking my awareness and self to a sleep type state. Because when I am tired I do some breathing exercises using the mindful meditation and feel my tiredness go away. Which am guessing expands the blood brain barrier so removing melatonin which is what occurs in sleep as too much melatonin makes us, tired.

Meditation and the Senses

I have been meditating on and off for nearly one year. I follow the concept of mindfulness which is the psychological process of bringing one's attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment.

At first, it didn't feel right as thought meditating about issues in your life seemed like the logical thing to do but with further reading I realised that one of biggest issues I face is to be continually distracted. So no time to be bored and thinking about nothing. Also, there was good research on how mindful meditation helps cognition. Sometimes when meditating can actually feel my brain rewiring its neurons and thus expanding.

My understanding now if we are trying to get an understanding of the present moment we should be able to link into all our senses at the same time. I was originally taught the five senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell) but now know there are many others like temperature, balance, ph level, the position of limbs, orientation, time and biological senses. Even when looking at these senses you can break it down even further like for sound you can think about the pitch, timbre, and loudness. So there is plenty of feedback loops to lock into when doing mindful meditation. What I will be trying to do is trying to process as many senses as I can in one go so get a holistic feeling of myself when meditating.

My current understanding of how meditation changes our reality is also similar to prayer, affirmations and what I used to do which is just think about stuff very intensely. I feel that mindful meditation increase the power of how you can change your reality. Now there is science to back up that concept which is shown below

Which brings me why am writing again as I am on a path to understanding my reality and writing about it clarify my thoughts and expands my understanding of the topics. What I will be mainly looking at is consciousness

Consciousness and Universe

Have been following a lot of Jordan Peterson and listened to the last discussion between Peterson and Harris which I didn't find very fulfilling. Based on my frame it seems that Peterson is on another level trying to give examples to Harris to understand what he is saying. Think the problem with me and Harris concepts is that I know that there are forces out there that we not able to comprehend and most of us can't see but we can see the outcomes of their actions. In my experience people who don't have the frame of understanding see these signs as coincidences.

Anyway back on topic so have been contemplating the meaning of life and found Scott Adams explanation interesting and seems to follow similar concepts of people who have taken DMT.  The idea that the older you get, the more you meld into the universe and become one. The more you lose yourself and care about the people around you.

To learn new concepts is very difficult especially if you have no frame around the concept. So after seeing Peterson realizes that the best way to teach new complicated concepts is to wrap them up in a story. A story is similar to a picture is a thousand words. Once you have a foundation and general idea of what happens in the story, next is to explain motivations of characters and meanings of the environment. Once we get an understanding of then get to explain the concept that the story is trying to teach. From there we should be able to see that concept in our environment

Issues I am having with my theory is that I still don't understand is that after death why some people are left behind and some people move on after death. Is it if you live a certain life you meld into the universe where others still play a role. My guess is the closer the person is to the egoless self the better chance they have of melding into consciousness while others have to be around and help people.

 If we are in a video game it would be programmed as each person is given a bar of how much they should do for themselves and how much they have to do for others. When they die whatever is left over they have fulfill that in the afterlife.

I also have an issue how all different types of religion have their own power and works from them. How can this be if one religion is true. When I did religion unit at Uni, I wanted to write a paper on how religion is like natural selection which means the strongest religions are the ones that are able to adapt to their surrounding. That was 30 years ago which means Muslim faith has become the strongest religion since then.

So this leads me today. Was waiting for my wife at Op-shop and thought to kill time would do some mindful meditation. Realised people around me thinking that I was crazy so though I might as well think about stuff that I have been contemplating.  The idea that the universe is a shared consciousness came to me.  Consciousness not as we know as covers all time too.

I think what I need to do is get all the anomalies that I understand may be true and fit an explanation around that. Like spirits, visions, dmt experiences, afterlifes of major religions, affirmations, prayer, sacrifices, empathy, So will be writing more as it seems clarify my thoughts and has better way to expand my frame of reference to expand my consciousness

Increasing my Mental Capacity

I am in the process of getting myself in shape to work again. Because of my age I feel I need to increase my mental capacity so that I will be more confident in my abilities. One of those steps is to write a journal every night on what was actioned during the day. I felt it would be more beneficial to me if I made a blog post out of my journey so far.

Increasing my cognitive capacity has been an interesting journey. It started when I realised that I was getting tired all the time when doing my Mongodb course. I inferred that my mental tank had significantly diminished as I was continually getting tired after going through complicated training sessions.  This has led to a rabbit warren full of paths on techniques to increase mental capacity.

The main cognitive aids that I have incorporated into my daily routine are the following

Increased intake of omega-3 in terms of fish oil pills and one tin of tuna a day
Conscious of the need of taking L-tyrosine fortified food
Probiotics in the form of yakult but really should make cabbage juice
Take thiamine tables when brain starts to fog up

Mental Exercise
Mindful Meditation has many different benefits which I am still trying to confirm
dual n-back game to help with fluid intelligence

Physical Exercise
Yoga based exercises and physical activity that will get a sweat
Create a list of tasks to complete during the day in batches of three so can tick them off regurlarly to increase dopamine levels
Create a journal at end of the day to help in terms of spacing memory technique
Learn a new skills or concept to increase dopamine levels

Unconscious Activity
Good Sleep patterns and a nap during the day if I am tired or feel that have to much amyloid beta that is fogging my brain

The majority of my nearly forty steps in my daily routine are related to increasing my cognitive capacity. My assumption is that due to the neuroplasticity of the brain,  it will adapt when it is given rigourous mental exercises like how the body adapts to physical exercise and fasting.

So my strategy is that in building new brain muscles, I will need food to repair the muscles after the exercise and sleep/naps/meditation to rid the waste created by the mental exercises.

Seems rational to me, LOL. Anyway its working,  my brain physically feels better. Hopefully by the end of this exercise, I will have a job and be able to communicate how different I am now.

Why am I betting on MongoDB

I have started my journey of getting back into IT so am attending my first meetup of the three I am attending this week.  .  Its going to be a MongoDB meetup. I originally installed MongoDb a few years ago like I also installed MySQL before Oracle bought it. I was more impressed with MySQL at that time.

My key strength has alway been managing data.  So in the process of getting back, I wanted to do some MySql courses but the MongoDB courses at the Mongo University was free. So I went all in on MongoDB and successfully completed three 7 week courses which was a real struggle at the beginning.

So you can say that I am already invested in MongoDB but the reality is that I have always seemed to lucky in finding the relevant technology for me. The course at Mongo University was a great learning experience. Especially when I realised that this is the type of database and distributed systems that I needed when I first proposed to create artificual intelligence program for my final project at Uni.

I would not recommend MongoDB for storing and recording financial transactions but for me its very relevent for storinging information going forward. I think the actual competitor is Firebase

To me the main streingth of MongoDB is the dynamic schema and the way its stores data in JSON. Its more how we think and work. Information is key and use cases are changing rapidly. The ability for a data collection to change rapidly with the use cases has to be a significant advantage going forward. JSON is also key strength as I have never been able to get my head around XML but found JSON natural.

In 2000 I was trying to make Microsoft SQL Server Replication work. I ended up working a lot of late nights manually fixing the replication errors. The replication in Mongodb is built in and part of its core function. Another major positive for me is when there is a failure you have another working server, which is much more beneficial then restoring from backups

What amazes me the most though is the sharding over many different servers and ability to add servers when hitting thoroughput limits. This functionality is just perfect timing with the provisioning services from AWS and Google Cloud which makes adding a server so easy. It took me days to get my head around the concept of working using SSH/SCP with Google Cloud but once learnt that, I was able to use same concepts with AWS servers.

Anyway hopefully writing this article has given me enough clarity to be able to talk about MongoDb with some confidence. I am also now more confident in my choice.

Forgot to add one extra benefit is that its fun and intiuative working with MongoDB because the data feels natural and query also the same.

Affect of Cognitive Resources in learning complicated Skills

I have just completed three courses at Mongo University mainly on MongoDB and Node.js. In the process of studying, I kept on getting really tired and was continously looking for breaks, where the best being a 10 minute power nap. Near the end of the course it was getting easier to learn new things and then I started on the Mean Stack.  I chose to study the Mean Stack as it came free with Google Cloud and had Node.js which I learnt from the course just completed at Mongo University.

In my process of studying I came across the following youtube  on Cognitive Resources

This has totally change my outlook in learning news skills and way I am aproach learning complex concepts.

At an IT person one of our keys has always been the tools we use either the programming language or the IDE and frameworks. As the tools we use has a significant affect on meeting requirements of whatever project we are working on.  One tool that have never been aware of is congitive resources besides drinking a lot of coffee and being physicall fit assist codying.

I now realised that our brain is like a mana bar we have in  mmo games. The amount of mana you use is dependant on how complex and new the problem you are facing. So the reason I was getting tired so often was not because of boredem which I thought, but because of the effort my brain was trying to do in processing the new information. So my congnitive resources was being exausted without being refilled.

What is interesting to me is when I was addressing the learning through spatial means i.e Coggle (Mind map). I was not getting tired also it was hard for me to get tired when I was writing code. So for me the reading and visual processing of information was making me tired.

So to increase my Brain Tank, I kneed to address how my mental fitness has declined significantly so need to train it again and also build up the muscles in my brain.  I will write some new posts in my journey of getting mentally fit again but the main thing is that I have addressed my main barriers to learning and aknowledge that conginitive resources is a very important layer in my tools.

Reason I wrote this post to put in the details of the scaffolding I have already done with Cognitive Resources. Things that have I have learnt in writing this blog post.

  • Physically doing work is the same concept as warmdown in exercise in terms of getting rid of lactic acid and is reason why can do more complicated work for longer, so replentishing the tank
  • Process of writing a blog post does help in fleshing out details of new concepts
  • Scaffolding is very important to build understandings from
  • More tired I got when the the subject was more fuzzier and no scaffolds to attach too.
