I hope I’m not repeating myself. I will try to assemble under this post my basic somewhat innocent view of the physical universe. My motivation is strictly to motivate real physicists into possibilities they might not have considered before. My ‘understanding’ of all this is malleable and not dogmatic by any stretch.
I believe that this universe originated around 13.8B years ago from the meeting of 2 components: memory(spacetime consciousness) and energy/matter.
The memory, stored spacetime warpings from aware systems, was the remnant of a previous sequence of universes exposed to energy/matter; Ancestor universes. It ran out of energy to keep it going full tilt and so was in a dormant state (only memory; no energized matter) for eons. Memory requires no energy to sustain it in a dormant state; just like a cup on a shelf retains its shape.
Upon meeting the tiny spec called energy/matter, memory set the physical laws of this new universe (pre-inflation period) based on previous experiences. Memory can become aware of itself when incorporating into fluid systems with growth potential. Please take note that the Earth is contained within this memory field. This newly self-aware memory has a feel of separateness from the whole. This is an illusion at the base of humanity’s problems.
Memory in matter does not differ from memory in biological systems. At first, you might think I’m advocating that there is life in the non-living like rocks or something; I’m stating the opposite; so far as we know, only bio-organic molecules have workable memory with growth potential. It might be possible that the biological system known as life might in fact have had a kickstart from a spacetime warping memory being in interaction with dead but reactive organic molecules (memory before life).
Memory is very central to our universe. I believe that there is no difference between the memory of an electron and human memory. It’s a question of scale and organization. That’s why we are capable of comprehending the laws of physics, it’s because the laws of physics are generated by the same processes as mind.
Some memory must be stored in DNA. When particles are fixed into large molecular structures and not easily moved, the flexible spacetime within their environment might be warped by Higgs interactions without breaking any physical laws and imprint a form of memory to the environment. This environment runs mostly within and around the DNA helix. This memory could at times transfer with sperms.
In our case, what is this memory? It’s the resultant value of the accumulated multi-generational memories of every cell represented in the DNA. Every gene is a selfish gene with its own history and carries with it a signature spacetime warp of every one of its call to arms (as well as the quiet times) in interaction between all 100,000,000,000+ neural cells. This is true for all of them. This is what is meant by an infinity: too many interactions to ever be able to account for all of the possibilities. There are so many of these genes and so many interactions that they lose their individuality in all of this. There is also a large time period that is covered by genetic memory. You can’t expect to extract much from all this unless you have a very powerful filter ; ) The signal is really crowded. Just go with your instincts.
