ATON is a hopefully evolving classification theory. It aspires to unify knowledge around numbers and prefers naive methods. Some of the older posts are wrong but I'll keep them for the sake of continuity.

Senses and organs, fields and charges

The parallels between life and the universe has been suspected for a long time. After all, we are a subset of the universe and also situated in the middle of it, as also proposed by my recent 'Ten Aspects of Reality (TAR)' posting. Cliff Pickover's Reality Carnival occasionally prints the following;

'If we wish to understand the nature of reality, we have an inner hidden advantage: we are ourselves a little portion of the universe and so carry the answer within us.' - Jacques Boivin

I have come across to this concept for a while now, but not seen any explicit comparison. Since my recent TAR, I have been thinking about this a bit more. Previously I posted '7 Senses' but the fields were not right.

TAR suggests that there are ten senses;

{{measure,touch,balance},
{taste,touch,smell},
{see,touch,hear}}

Together with the all inclusive nothingness {}, they are ten. Each triplet is mediated by it's own type of touch sense. In a sense, they differentiate or evolve from this root sense. They touch each other by this sense in the brain. The three touch senses are mediated by the touch sense mediating the {taste,smell} duality. The feeding related touch sense is the origin of all senses.

There are 5 known fields;

{{strong,weak},{higgs},{light,gravity}}

Higgs is not observed yet and theorized to be a scalar field. Each field has it's own charges. Light has (+,-) charges, Gravity has mass, Strong has the color charges, and Weak has the (W+,W-) charges.

Similarly senses have their own organs. Vision has eyes, hearing has ears, taste has mouth, and smell has nose. They are all mediated by the root senses in the brain. Clearly the brain mediates all senses. I propose that there is a root sense doing all this mediation. Consider the following mapping;

{see,hear} ---> {light,gravity} ---> {star,universe}
{taste,smell} ---> {strong,weak} ---> {cell,species}
{measure,balance} ---> {?,?} ---> {time,space}

The last column is from TAR.

The first line groups {see,light,star} and {hear,gravity,universe}. The fist triplet is reasonable. In the second, {gravity,universe} correspondence is also fine since gravity is the force shaping the outer aspect of the universe. Interesting that hearing gets mapped to gravity. Gravity makes the geometry for light to operate in, and hearing sets the context for vision to operate in. Bats use the this context setting property of sound to navigate. In movies, audio sets the mood, while video coveys information.

The second line groups {taste,strong,cell} and {smell,weak,species}. {taste,strong} relationship is reasonable, since both are short range. It is interesting that {cell} falls in this triplet. It seems cell is all about taste. They have to touch each other to do things. {smell,weak} correspondence also seems reasonable. Weak has a longer range than Strong, like Smell and Taste. Why does Species fall into this triplet?

The third line groups {measure,?,time} and {balance,?,space}. {measure,time} and {balance,space} correspondences are reasonable. The organs of the balance sense are the three liquid filled hairy rings for each inner ear. What is the organ of the measure sense? It is known that the brain is run by clocks. Maybe there is a central clock. What are the fields standing for the question marks? There must be two unknown fields. Thus ATON predicts two new fields and their corresponding charges. Maybe space-time are the charges of these fields. Maybe space-time is a field of the black holes. This seems quite credible since they are the boundaries. Also rings a bell with Hawking's holographic principle.

Moreover, there must be ten fields to reflect the ten senses proposed by TAR. Higgs is like touch; it is a scalar or generic field. Maybe Higgs divides into three.

Nucleon, brain, and black hole

This is a another look at the Ten Aspects of Reality (TAR), which are;

{{time,matter,space},
{cell,organism,species},
{star,galaxy,universe}}

With the all inclusive bracket {} nothingness, they are ten.

Recently it occurred to me that the new cosmological models predict ten dimensions. Anyway, this is not the main point here, I just wanted to mention it.

Hawking's entropy formula for a black hole is proportional to the area of the event horizon. This means that nothing gets lost in a black hole and there is a maximum entropy density, which happens to be on a surface. I suppose the area of a black hole is calculated according to the flat space-time much further away from the horizon, since space-time does not exist at the surface itself.

Encouraged by the TAR, I wanted to compare the brain to the black hole. Neurons are distributed on the surface of the brain and all the inner bits are wiring. Whatever happens in the brain, actually happens on the surface. Like a black hole. The difference is that black holes are connected to it's body from the outside, and brains from the inside. Black hole is like the brain of a galaxy. It's body consists of stars, nebula, gas, dust and other stuff. Latest research suggest that the earliest galaxies also had black holes. Brains also form very early in organisms.

Galaxies seem to form a huge collective meta brain, like humans and other organisms form a huge meta brain. Now we are building the internet to take this meta brain to a new level. I think the internet is the first step of humanity in the merging of our minds to the hardware of the universe. This has been suggested before. I think there are types of black holes, as there are types of galaxies. There are two main types; elliptical and spiral. Like organisms; male and female. Galactic society seems to be a reflection of the organic society, but maybe inside out.

Nucleons are made of 3 quarks and 3 gluons. There are two types; proton and neutron. Proton is stable by itself; neutron decays to proton, electron, and neutrino. Proton seems to have infinite life-time. Maybe it has the life-time of the universe. There are also 3 primary and 3 secondary senses of an organism; {{measure,see,taste},{balance,hear,smell}}. Touch is a generic sense and mediates all senses. All senses are types of touch. Brain is made around the senses. Proton seems to be the smallest possible black hole. Well, maybe not a black hole but something closely related. It's constituents are confined. As if it reflects the outer world; space-time. It is also connected to it's body (electrons, photons, and other stuff} from the outside.

It seems the organic brain mediates two types of 'material' brains; {nucleon,brain,black hole}. It exists by sandwiching itself between two reverse brains. And it's form obeys the quantity triplet; {0,1,infinity}. The question is; what is the nothingness that includes the lot?

The following Escher work (from http://www.mcescher.com/) reflects the symmetry of the brain triplet quite well I thought. There are two boundaries, inner and outer, and everything happens in between;
