THE PRELIMINARY THOUGHTS OF A LEARNED-IGNORANT GENERALIST ON THE LIMITATION OF CURRENT SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
“It needs but half an eye to see in these latter days that science, the Grand Revelator of modern Western culture, has reached, without having intended to, a frontier. Either it must bury its dead, close its ranks, and go forward into a landscape of increasing strangeness, replete with things shocking to a culture-trammeled understanding, or it must become, in Claude Houghton’s expressive phrase, the plagiarist of its own past.” Benjamin Lee Whorf, (1956) [Already true then]“ Language, Thought, and Reality” in the The M. I. T. Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts .(P. 246)
When we look at the universe through the lens of string theory, we can see that strings could be the underlying building blocks that exist at every level of organization. It’s remarkable to consider how life, which is essentially a product of matter, must be already encoded within these very same bits of information. The building blocks of life are present throughout the entire universe, from the tiniest particles to the grandest structures. It makes you wonder about the more profound mysteries of existence and how everything is connected.
LASZLO’S EVOLUTIONARY GRAND SYNTHESIS:
“String theory proposes that the fundamental constituents of the universe are one-dimensional “strings” rather than point-like particles. What we perceive as particles are actually vibrations in loops of string, each with its own characteristic frequency.” (Google’s answer to “what does string theory explain.”)
These vibrations, to me, are not strings of energy needing foundations to rest upon. Instead, they are strings of information that are complete in themselves and do not require anything else to inform the universe.
“Information is information, not matter or energy. No materialism that does not admit this can survive at the present day.”Norbert Wiener
As I will demonstrate in my PhD dissertation.
PS The above text has been edited by the AI “GrammarlyGO,” which clarified what I meant. However, being a “learned-ignorant generalist” with enough university background to write a significant Ph.D. dissertation on the limits science but without having any specific background on which I can establish my comprehensive thinking, I cannot express myself as well as AI does while using more comprehensively the general source of accumulated-knowledge that is the Internet, the cyber extension of our minds.
