Understanding reality first in order to understand consciousness.

-- To build an effective model of consciousness, first, redefine reality, that is, change scientific paradigms.  And, of course,  the challenge is seeing what is unseen, and saying what previously has no expression. (Ralph Frost, 06/21/2016)

In the quest to develop  a so-called science of consciousness, in hindsight I notice that the tact I've taken (or was led or stumbled into) is to first re-define reality. 

Psychotic and grandiose as that sounds and is,  it turns out that in the "consciousness movement" there is already some logic and history with  that approach.  That is, briefly,  the entire panpsychic enterprise engages in that approach -- of re-defining reality in terms of, or as "consciousness", or in variations of "consciousness units" (or monads, etc.) Also, implied in the on-going debate about physical versus non-physical which is, of course, embedded and  locked in due to the prevailing adoption of the definition of (physical) reality in terms of our familiar physical units.  Logic also tells us that IF the prevailing scientific paradigm were robust enough and accurate enough,  the job would already have been completed decades ago and would NOT be  discussed today or in the various ways and terms which it is.

So, there is all this evidence --or are they just  indications?-- which call for opening door number two -- for revising the scientific paradigm for real -- for  re-defining reality first. Once that step is taken,  people can migrate to the so-called transcendent level and then the lights can go on on the new expressions which will become the science(s) of consciousness.

As an added impetus, the split-brained nature of the dominant quantum-relativistic (physical) scientific model itself continues to send disquieting signals throughout the fabric of reality.   The disquieting signals have echoes  throughout economic, environmental, species diversity indices, educational,  social and cultural networks. Yes, it is time to change the global scientific paradigm.

And, of course,  the challenge is seeing what is unseen, and saying what previously has no expression.

One view of the story line I am advocating might have it that, like was my experience, all one needs to do is start in with analog math, observe the principle and add the re-definition. That is, play around with magnetic tetrahedra so as to acquire the physical intuition and learn the principle of structured~duality firsthand, and then notice that reality is nested structured~duality.

Solar fusion flux courses through our photosynthetic and respiring veins playing representational melodies


Regarding your well-intentioned attempts and question about why bite the hand that feeds you -- or other such queries,   I think what PB may be doing is, say, laying rhetorical or alternate-paradigm logical groundwork to support the (his) ~answer:  [dark matter/energy, biophotons, etc.]  In order to make that ~conclusion, when stated,  effective, it may seem best in some perspectives to maximize  confusion/uncertainty about ~self and mind-body etc.

Thus, clarifying 'self'  or presenting obvious self facts and relations is not that helpful.  -- For instance, each one of our selves does have influential parents or caregivers (in varying degrees) who taught us  how to protein-fold words in our languages and we go on to structurally code other, sometimes new and sometimes awesome  protein-foldings to convey other new influences and perspectives.  Amid this also, all exists as mystery, folded and compounded  within nested fields within nested fields, gradients of circulating energy, gradients of nested structured~duality -- structured differences reflecting and refracting, etc., from various  interactive surfaces.  One developing perspective MAY be  the dark-light oscillations.

In the story line I articulate and advocate, solar fusion flux courses through our photosynthetic and respiring veins playing representational melodies, as I was taught/learned, in the mostly tetrahedral sp^3-hybridized molecular bonding in our so-called "organic chemistry".   Now, today, comes this mild insight that we call it sp^3 HYBRIDIZED because  of our initialization with the cubic orientation.  We start out with the cubic framework and then discover that we must HYBRIDIZE (adjust) the cubic orientations of 1s and 3p electron groupings to match with (natural, mostly tetrahedral) measured bond angles. Had our science started out with  tetrahedral structural coordination to begin with, it's likely we would have some substantially different concepts and impressions about 'hybridization' and types of chemistries and the ~significance or specialness of our "organic, resonance stabilized bondings".   This is one example where choice of framework (coordinate system) is not relativistically equal but   does actually influence STEM-related outcomes, concepts  and beliefs.
