    Sharing my philosophy of life and living

    My perspective on "The Beginning of the Universe", as discussed in my thread by that name, amounts to the philosophy and the logic I employ to justify my preference for the "always existed" explanation for the existence of the universe.

    Obliquely related to that thread is a philosophy of life and living, called Eternal Intent, that I have derived, and elaborated on over the years, from the work of developing the Infinite Spongy Universe Model of Cosmology; a model that in fact features the "always existed" explanation.

    That model consists of known physics, observations, theories that work together, and beyond that, personal speculations and hypotheses (shared out in the Fringe) to fill gaps between what the scientific community knows, and does not yet know, about the invariant natural laws of the universe that are featured in the ISU model.

    The philosophy of Eternal Intent can only be operative if the universe has always existed, and if the set of invariant natural laws have always been at work. Given those circumstance, the laws would provide endless habitable environments where live would be generated, and would evolve into intelligent life forms of potentially infinite variety, in a potentially infinite number of places, across the infinities of time and space, and where discoveries of the "as yet" unknown would be continually unfolding.

    The real meat of Eternal Intent is the individual act of seeking acknowledgements that are in accord with the "as yet" unknown portion of the natural laws, i.e., from beyond the boundary of known science, and in anticipating a response that confirms, to one's satisfaction, that some combination of invariant natural law has been activated, and has caused some event or outcome that would not have occurred, had it not been for seeking the acknowledgement, or at least the activity of forward thought.

    So far, throughout my life of contemplating the universe, of the considering the "always existed" explanation, and of deriving the philosophy of Eternal Intent, all of the specifics about my experience with seeking acknowledgements from beyond the boundary have been kept to myself. Part of the reasoning for such lack of sharing is the woo woo nature of the "as yet" unknown, and part is because there is no quantification or scientific analysis supporting my limited experiences.

    Right now I am wondering what effect disclosure of my experience would have on the success of future out comes. Maybe keeping it all to myself somehow permits my limited success, or maybe what limited success I have perceived will go away when I start discussing specifics.

    These are some tiny things that are encouraging me in my experience of seeking acknowledgements:

    1) they include the perception of something that gives me confidence or corroboration that some broad request is playing out or will play out in due course, characterized by some simple trigger acknowledgement like seeing a short combination of repeating numbers show up in my reading or internet surfing

    2) sometimes there seem to be auto-acknowledgements there for me in ways that I had recently thought would be helpful, but where I haven't specifically requested an acknowledgement; positive responses to mere thoughts or hopes

    3) there is a sense of invoking a stronger version of the power of positive thinking, aided by the simple act of invoking some "as yet" unknown law or combination of laws, based on the fact that phenomenal things like the existence of life itself, consciousness, self-awareness, freewill, etc., leave room to think there are still more examples of amazing phenomena yet to be discovered.

    4) the case for trial and error in regard to ground rules, invariant connections, qualifying preconditions, personal intentions, worthiness of requests, etc., lead to trying new approaches to seeking acknowledgements

    This is an ongoing project for me; part of what has come to be a hobby of mine, to keep trying to find and understand more of the "as yet" unknown. I see no reason not to share the concepts, and sharing might in fact invoke something embedded in invariant law.

    This will be like a blog unless there is some participation, and no one wants to see me blog, right?

    One of the first acknowledgements I sought was for the improved well being of the children of the world;


    I'm hopeful.

    Not far into my philosophy, I invoke what I call a "set of invariant natural laws" that have always existed. I'd like to know, for example, if the existence of that sort of natural law is popular or unpopular, and if there are objections to that concept, do you argue for some particular alternative, and why?

    I suspect that the universe is deterministic... an a "set of invariant natural laws" that always existed dont seem problematic to me... but i dont suspect that the universe has a purpose thats always existed... do you.???

    When you say you suspect the universe is deterministic, do you mean that all the laws are invariant, and all physical events that occur rely on those laws being in force at all times? If so, I agree.

    However, I want to add that I think that statement is also in accord with the position that self aware, intelligent beings have freewill, and can act as they see fit in any given situation. I supposing that the mind and consciousness work within the constraints of invariant natural laws, decisions that the individual makes, and resulting actions that the individual takes are not predetermined, they are conscious choices made instant by instant.
    No, My philosophy is that the laws are invariant, and though that does not attribute "purpose" to the universe, it permits there to be a natural "intent" to host intelligent, free willed life forms, and that intent has always been a part of that eternal invariant natural law.

    Those universal laws include the mechanisms to produce hospitable environments where life is naturally generated and evolved, thus resulting in the continual existence of intelligent life forms. I am saying that is the way it has always been, and I call that Eternal Intent, not a purpose for the existence of the universe.

    Technically, it is a narrow distinction:
    http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/323400/intention-vs-purpose
    Oxford Dictionaries define the nouns as

    • intention
      A thing intended; an aim or plan
    • purpose
      The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists
    My take is that the above text from Oxford, as it applies to the context of my personal philosophy, would be "intention" - a thing always intended, while the text of the definition for "purpose" would be related to something created as if there was something in mind before the invariant natural laws were established.

    A big fly i see in the ointment is... how the necessary free will occurs.!!!

    I know what you mean. My thinking is that the mind and the free willed action have a time delay relative to the invariant workings of the brain cells. The brain cells follow the invariant laws to lay out what free willed options the individual has, and the free willed individual decides among the options, then acts with a time delay related to the signals required for the muscles to carry out the willed action. Thought and decision precedes implementation, another narrow distinction, but this a philosophy. The "as yet" unknown is in play, and the sense of freewill is not yet understood.

    Woudnt you'r Philosophy of Life still work even if free will was only an illusion.???

    I think of free will like one of the senses, but one that we don't yet understand. The philosophy would not be the same to me if free will was an illusion.

    Take sight or hearing, or any of the senses for that matter. They are all after the fact, in the sense that there is a physical acquisition of the information of the event, and then the time delay while the brain sorts out the signals to make sense of the acquired information. The sense that we operate with freewill, when and if it ever becomes understood as to how it works, may well be on a time delay just like sight or sound.

    Meaning that the "as yet" unknown natural laws that are at work are related to consciousness, and conscious action that follows the actual event and perception of the event; they lead to the free willed decision of how to act. If that's the case, freewill wouldn't be an illusion in my way of thinking.

    Do you thank an improved well being of the children of the world wont occur unless will is free.???

    You can believe in life, and time. It creates hope. Belief becomes contentment and creates the wish to be out of nirvana. You can prove a belief and use it for science.

    I think that if there are as yet unknown workings of the invariant natural laws, and if one can activate those invariant workings by seeking an acknowledgement, such as the improved well being of children, then the question is, is the decision to seek such an acknowledgement a freewill decision or not. I say if there was a conscious decision to seek that form of acknowledgement, then any positive result would be attributed to the free willed decision.

    The cause and effect in your stream of logic is unclear. To believe in life and time is a human ability, and for a human to find hope from one's believes is logical. The use of "creates" in your statement is what I find unclear.

    Belief in life would want to be its own thing like paradise. Its nature is embryo, and the nature is womb. Both the nut and the shell.

    Faith in life defines hope.

    Those thoughts seem to be the end result of a philosophy of life, but it wouldn't be the same philosophy as mine. Do you want to elaborate here, or start a thread of your own to lay it out?

    Seems like the "delay" is just kickin the can down the road... cause eventualy a choice has to be made... an it will be cause an effect which makes the choice what ever it turns out to be.!!!
    Sinse free will is necessary i guess i cant get on bord wit you'r Philosophy of Life ideas.!!!

    I understand. Having a personal philosophy of life gives one the chance to take some liberties when speculating about the "as yet" unknown natural laws. You choose to take liberties by deciding that the "as yet" unknown doesn't include any laws that allow freewill. Just different personal conclusions about the viability of freewill. Thanks for the input.
