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.
