The Music of the Polytopes

Consciousness and the cosmos are both a cacophony and a ‘symphony’ of the vibrating strings of string theory, resonating in 11-dimensional hyperspace.

These patterns may occur when the state vector collapses, a la, Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff; ‘elegant’ geometric patterns of the spacetime continuum that manifest within our inner subjective awareness, within consciousness-at-large, if such exists, and in outer objective mathematics. 

Eugene Wigner’s unreasonable ‘effectiveness of mathematics’ may be isomorphic to the unreasonable effectiveness of music upon consciousness. Both follow from the ’reasonable’ effectiveness of natural selection. Our brains follow the logic and perhaps esthetics of the universe, not vice versa.

Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language. — Ludwig Wittgenstein

Benediction

One Tarot unifies QM with GR.
Infinite maths vary from world to world,
moment to moment.

Everywhere you turn, a Messiah of Fools.
What more could be needed,
blessed with such an excess of truth?

Occam’s razor, the principle of parsimony, states that “entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity”

May-Tzu’s razor, the principle of parsimonious parsimony, states that “If entities do not meet my expectations, then they ought be multiplied by zero.”

I saw a flock of geese today.
Flew in from Venus straightaway.
Geese from Venus, I’m quite certain;
Nothing Cosmic behind the curtain.

May-Tzu

How can you reverse engineer a flock of geese or the planet Venus?

So called ’reality’ is just a Conspiracy Theory.

I’m trying to unify quantum gravity with general relativity within a culturally invariant matrix of all possible jokes in all possible languages, theoretical and actual, for all possible cognitive systems in all possible brains and AIs.

“A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes.” ― Ludwig Wittgenstein

“Your life is an expression of all your thoughts.”

Marcus Aurelius

“Your life is an expression of some of your thoughts, all of your actions and inactions, your subconsciousness, your DNA, synchronicity and pure chance.”
