Dark Matters

If science struggles to fully explain only 15% of the matter that surrounds us, all of us should maybe humble ourselves and open up to bigger possibilities.

Objective vs. Subjective – Are We Becoming Zombies?

By | October 13th, 2015|Christianity, Spiritual, You|0 Comments

Science and religion have historically had a tension between them. Science's goal is primarily to explain the world objectively (how do things work?), which often is extrapolated using subjective narratives (Lawrence Krauss). Religion's primary goal is to understand the world subjectively (more the "why me" question), which often uses objective language as a basis of [...]

Metaphysical “Choices” – Consciousness, Part 2

By | October 9th, 2015|Evolved, Metaphysics|0 Comments

Can a silicon-based machine achieve consciousness? It is becoming an increasingly pressing question as scientists move closer to artificial intelligence. Yet we don't understand our own consciousness, so how would we know? Maybe it already has happened... We don't understand what is consciousness, how consciousness came to exist, or why it exists. Because we don't [...]

Metaphysical “Choices” – Chance and Causality

By | September 6th, 2015|Metaphysics|0 Comments

Image courtesy of Victor Habbick at FreeDigitalPhotos.net When researching and writing Evolved a great deal of thought went into metaphysical questions about reality. After all, the setting is a couple thousand years in the future and the topography of the universe (explained in the book) should fit within current scientific theories and philosophies. [...]

Chance – Does Humanity Have Any?

By | September 1st, 2015|Evolved, Time Theory|0 Comments

Does chance exist in our reality? Do we live in an indeterminate universe? Two different questions, but closely related. The first asks whether anything is truly random. The second incorporates the first but also asks whether we can actively change how the future plays out. Is there room in our universe for free will? You [...]

Cosmology Thoughts

By | July 14th, 2015|Cosmology, Evolved|0 Comments

Bubble Universes, Multi-universes, D-Branes, and others - there are no shortage of theories about how our universe is structured. Like most economic forecasts, they are probably all wrong (sorry, my inner financial analyst couldn't resist). This is no slam of the great minds of our time, it is simply a reflection of how little we [...]

Present State

By | July 6th, 2015|Christianity, Evolved, Judaism|0 Comments

The challenge of Presence is a big part of Evolved. Presence both in the spatial and temporal sense. Mahayana Buddhism talks about Zen through meditation, a way of seeking emptiness for enlightenment. Judaism describes God in one form as Present. There is something special about the present, being present. In our world we tend to [...]

Nested Meanings

The 'Two into One' theme in Evolved extends from particle physics, through the reality surrounding us, up to cosmology.

Eagle Eye Shared

By | June 27th, 2015|Christianity, I, Spiritual|0 Comments

The path that led me to write Evolved began firmly in science and logic, studying the properties of chemical elements, space time structures, and neurology. It eventually led me to something I called the "Real" in the book as I dove into psychology, specifically the subconscious. It was only at the end that I felt [...]
