The science of the finer particles of the fabric of nature, quantum science, is telling us that consciousness is the underlying structure from where everything is brought into existence by our minds. It also says that in consciousness nothing exists but for electrons and protons and neutrons and other subatomic particles. This soup of charged and uncharged particles has this potential for anything to manifest as a probability. It is said that a “strange loop” on our heads connects us to consciousness.
So this below is how life would have begun as a 1 cell organism, connected by this strange loop to the rest of the universe. In fact, the fabric of consciousness would be the reason why this 1 cell organism got this far in the first place. The loop is part of a biofeedback system where the cell communicates with consciousness on what to do next in its evolutionary process.
Now moving on forward with millions of years of evolution you get this below. All this from a single cell via the evolutionary process and the strange loop is still present and still acting as a biofeedback link and still taking instructions from consciousness for its evolutionary progress.
And yet when I say “strange loop”, I have something else in mind — a less concrete, more elusive notion. What I mean by “strange loop” is — here goes a first stab, anyway — not a physical circuit but an abstract loop in which, in the series of stages that constitute the cycling-around, there is a shift from one level of abstraction (or structure) to another, which feels like an upwards movement in a hierarchy, and yet somehow the successive “upward” shifts turn out to give rise to a closed cycle. That is, despite one’s sense of departing ever further from one’s origin, one winds up, to one’s shock, exactly where one had started out. In short, a strange loop is a paradoxical level-crossing feedback loop. (pp. 101-102) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_loop
A tangled hierarchy is a hierarchical consciousness system in which a strange loop appears.
This is a self-referencing system as to how we know thyself. When the mind is finally silent you access consciousness through this strange loop via the tangled hierarchal system of consciousness, which strangely does not go too far from where it started and returns to itself, the mind, in a feedback process. So basically you are grabbing gold dust like information off the fabric of the cosmos for free but your mind has to tiptoe quietly into this venture. The mind first has to be silent.
So this is where the magic of the mind shows itself, in silence in mind, it connects. Not very different from the connection of the internet to your router and ISP. You know what happens when the connection is full of noise and you get a bad connection. It can be quiet frustrating trying to read what is on your screen when it frequently disconnects. Why should your mind be any different when it is loaded with unnecessary psychological thinking and other noises of societal living.
Then you look further at the detail of how the strange loop works. Below is a block diagram of a conversation between Jiddu Krishnamurti and physicists David Bohm.
The mind has to be silent first to access the Truth of consciousness. The tangled hierarchy strange loop then access the Truth of consciousness, to bring about the new in you. Now, what gets downloaded into this strange loop from all probabilities of possibilities of the quantum universe and in an ever-changing state of anxious possible becomings is actually triggered by your own request in mind. So only by doing and wanting, will the solution be given from the repository of everything and the all-knowing consciousness in the fabric of the universe.
Look at the properties of an intuition in you and the process of thinking. An intuition in you is an inkling of something that comes down this strange loop from the conscious fabric. An intuition is like a pop-up in the mind, a wow and an aha. It is indivisible. In its original state, it is an experiential fact.
Your thinking mind can come along and when you give it time to manipulate an intuition, it will make a lie of it. That is what thinking is: a process that creates the lie in the Truth in you. The creative process of thinking can create chaos if it wants too. Notice all this is now away from the state of the unmanifest of only possibilities probabilities of consciousness. After it gets downloaded via the strange loop it becomes multi-purpose via thinking and creativity.
So what gives the thinking process energy to spin and turn and compromise into this multitude of views. There is this awe for the process of creativity in our minds with it being a benevolent force in us. It was creativity that created nuclear energy to kill and also to provide light in our homes. It is a double edge sword. The process is unbiased and neutral in us but it is the spinner for thinking. You use it for good or for no good. It all depends on the direction of your mind.
You call creativity and it will accommodate. An example is in the process of making art where you call upon it to make works of art and it will show you the limitations of your thinking mind and it will go further to suggest a workaround in silence and stillness to access the repository of everything. It can spin you around a corner and take you to what you cannot yet see and show you a “new” pattern in your mind. It all depends on what you call upon from your unmanifested unconscious world of all possibilities outside of you through that tangle hierarchal strange loop while looking for a solution.
The thinking mind in psychological thinking of worry and anxiety from the past in you is a lie making machine that creates chaos in the world we live in. I think the creative process also acts as a spinner here. Thinking can create multi-views, multiple solutions but these solutions are not like the solutions that the strange loop downloads from the unmanifested consciousness. Thinking only further manipulates the Truth looking for further possibilities by adding to your past experiences. The result is still a lie in you and away from the naturalness from where it was first manifested. A seemingly new is created from the absolute after it has been spun by the past in you. It is that lie in your past that manipulates and compromises an original intuitive fact and contributes to the chaos when it is implemented.
Today there is a technological entity that is an equivalent of consciousness. Our living space is filled with synthetic energy that is technologically created. The city is nature on steroids. The living space in a city has an equivalent of consciousness that also has access to the tangled hierarchy strange loop and the mind has to deal with nature’s natural energies and the synthetic energies created by us.
It might be a recipe for disaster. Not only is there a competing synthetic consciousness all over the city but it also gets to inside our homes:
This recording above is made from a household living space access point for the telephone and internet lines using an induction loop receiver. It will find its way to all the crevices in your living space creating a canopy of subliminals of electromagnetic radio waves and vibrations of ultrasound tinnitus like modulating noises in your ears and eyes creating spurious nerve impulses all heading towards your brain. The microphone on your phone, your router and everything you see in the diagram above, becomes a feedback synthetic tangled hierarchy strange loop system similar to the biological one on your head and it knows what you are thinking when your mind couples with it because of “speak thinking”.
