Truth, as it Descends from Heaven

Well most know I am a layman looking at the methods of your arguments and understanding the Traditional versus the Modern, is a understanding of the move from Aristotelian to Boole,  as a historical sense of use of mechanics.

I had come to know about Plato's recognition of the pyramids in Egypt, as a pattern used in the Aristotelian Square of Opposition......Aristotle had to have learn this method, as an opposition too, Plato's point of views about God in Heaven, without suggesting that the way in which things flow downward.

The Inductive-Deductive Method of Aristotelian Science
Aristotelian intuition supplies the first principles (archai) of human knowledge: concepts, universal propositions, definitions, the laws of logic, the primary principles of the specialized science, and even moral concepts such as the various virtues.  This is why, according to Aristotle, intuition must be viewed as infallible.  We cannot claim that the first principles of human intelligence are dubious and then turn around and use those principles to make authoritative claims about the possibility (or impossibility) of knowledge.  If we begin to doubt intuition, that is, human intelligence at its most fundamental level of operation, we will have to doubt everything else that is built upon this universal foundation: science, philosophy, knowledge, logic, inference, and so forth.  Aristotle never tries to prove first principles.  He acknowledges that when it comes to the origins of human thought, there is a point when one must simply stop asking questions.  As he points out, any attempt at absolute proof would lead to an infinite regress.  In his own words: “It is impossible that there should be demonstration of absolutely everything; there would be an infinite regress, so that there would still be no demonstration.” (Metaphysics, 1006a6ff, Ross.)  Aristotle does make arguments, for example, that meaningful speech presupposes a logical axiom like the principle of non-contradiction, but that is not, strictly speaking, a proof of the principle. See: Aristotle: Logic

I will  assign image symbology, as logica, grammatical, and rhetorica, to a triangle, the Square represents Earth. It is thoughts which fill my head that the liberal arts is defined when you look at the pattern, as the square of opposition, and that the peak is man's pinnacle and reach for God, and as modeled in the pyramid under this ancient schooling method.

 The pyramid was a scheme for which those things which will become self evident, that after seeing infinite regress, allows views of Gods heaven to descend into the mind of man.

The Quadrivium is made up of the four triangles together with the trivium, seeks man as to perfecting. Each of the four triangles, represents aspects of perfecting when it comes to the understanding of the proponents of the Quadrivium.

The Quadrivium is made up of the four triangles together with the trivium, seeks man as to perfecting. The Quadrivium speak to a cyclical process as well as the developing the student toward logic, grammatical, and rhetoric.

This all belongs to Plato's Academy, but Aristotle took that pattern to the logic application, as the square of opposition, this, when Aristotle formed his own school.

All S are P, No S is P
All s is P is contrary to the claim NO S is P.
A contrary can be true as well as false.
Contraries can both be false. Contraries can't both be true.

The A and E forms entail each other's negations


Some S are P, Some S are not P

Sub contraries can't both be false. Sub contraries can both be true.

The negation of the I form entails the (unnegated) E form, and vice versa.


All S are P, Some S are not P,
Some S are P, No S are P
For contradictions -Two propositions are contradictory if they cannot both be true and they cannot both be false.

Contradictory means there is exactly one truth value and if one proposition is true the other MUST be false. If one is false the other MUST be true. The propositions can't both be true and the propositions can't both be false.

The A and O forms entail each other's negations, as do the E and I forms. The negation of the A form entails the (unnegated) O form, and vice versa; likewise for the E and I forms.

Super alteration-

Every S is P, implies Some S are P
No S is P, implies Some S are not P
The two propositions can be true.

Sub alteration-

All S are P, Some S are P
No S are P, Some S are not P
A proposition is a subaltern of another if it must be true

The A form entails the I form, and the E form entails the O form.


 Yes....I tried to get some clarity here regard such a start, and as a Universal. I have come to recognize, that such an association as may be given as to the statement of I am, of God, as something "inside the square of opposition" as it arose from the early understandings in relation to Aristotle and Plato. This, I have come to know of them, as expressions of the School run by Plato, and Raphael's setting of Aristotle and Plato together under the arch in that painting called Plato's Academy.

My distinction of intuition may be at odds with the classical description of the Aristotelian view, as to being infallible, while my own views were an assumption under the idea that such regressive moments, were when we had come to a point where infinite regress can no longer be applied, that such a step was necessary as to receiving the idea.

With regard to the advancement of science then, and under boole, the square of opposition changed as to being the undermined logic, as a product of the Aristotelian school. Mathematics then underwent a change in the modern sense as to giving up, the Platonism understanding of the Academy of the times.

While setting up for the idea, here I was seeking to have an idea as to descend into mind, was to me like inserting into an open space between the neurological function, as a gap. I was pushing discreteness to find that place in consciousness. Consciousness as a Derivative of Reductionism?

Can animals reason, yes they can, but do "ideas" settle into the neurological gaps as they do in humans? One would have to say yes as to the expressive state of animals as being part of God's creatures? Then, only to the degrees with which reason can be applied to animals, that such an idea may or may not be, evidential in the evolution of that animal? One may then understand "the idea of a stick being used"  by a monkey in the termite hill, as to arriving from somewhere?

The Roadmap Epigenomics Project

The Roadmap Epigenomics Project presents a wealth of epigenomes, a resource that provides a plethora of new hypotheses to be tested in relation to human health and disease. The current papers use innovative analytical approaches to uncover new mechanisms and pathways, to deepen and extend previous groundbreaking observations. 

While the Roadmap Epigenomics Project has reached a major milestone, the epigenomes of 127 cell types are just the beginning of the road to a comprehensive epigenome encyclopaedia. The International Human Epigenome Consortium plans to determine the epigenomes of every cell type in the human body — estimated to be several hundred to a thousand.

Behavioral epigenetics is the field of study examining the role of epigenetics in shaping animal (including human) behaviour.[1] It is an experimental science that seeks to explain how nurture shapes nature,[2] where nature refers to biological heredity[3] and nurture refers to virtually everything that occurs during the life-span (e.g., social-experience, diet and nutrition, and exposure to toxins).[2] Behavioral epigenetics attempts to provide a framework for understanding how the expression of genes is influenced by experiences and the environment[4] to produce individual differences in behaviour,[5] cognition[2] personality,[6] and mental health.[7][8]
Epigenetic gene regulation involves changes other than to the sequence of DNA and includes changes to histones (proteins around which DNA is wrapped) and DNA methylation.[9] These epigenetic changes can influence the growth of neurons in the developing brain[10] as well as modify activity of the neurons in the adult brain.[11][12] Together, these epigenetic changes on neuron structure and function can have a marked influence on an organism's behavior.[1]

By the time Szyf arrived at McGill in the late 1980s, he had become an expert in the mechanics of epigenetic change. But until meeting Meaney, he had never heard anyone suggest that such changes could occur in the brain, simply due to maternal care.
“It sounded like voodoo at first,” Szyf admits. “For a molecular biologist, anything that didn’t have a clear molecular pathway was not serious science. But the longer we talked, the more I realized that maternal care just might be capable of causing changes in DNA methylation, as crazy as that sounded. So Michael and I decided we’d have to do the experiment to find out.” See:
Grandma's Experiences Leave a Mark on Your Genes
We have seen ]experimentation with regard to mice, where in experiment # 3, they are able to affect the pups with an injection in order to release the pups from an absence of what nurturing does, by what a mother can produce in the pups. So we may come to believe the neurological manufacture can be used to help change the way people perceive?

 Epigenetics has a strong influence on the development of an organism and can alter the expression of individual traits.[9] Epigenetic changes occur not only in the developing fetus, but also in individuals throughout the human life-span.[19] Because some epigenetic modifications can be passed from one generation to the next,[20] subsequent generations may be affected by the epigenetic changes that took place in the parents.[20]

 So here's the question.

How could society as a culture change, if it did not believe that consciousness could be capable of, while changing on a biological level? Do you not have to assume that the mind/body has a deep interrelationship with how one perceives, and that only after such a realization,  with regard to biology,  is it understood,  that we must take embodied mind into consideration? That we are more then a slave to our senses.

Darwin and Freud walk into a bar. Two alcoholic mice — a mother and her son — sit on two bar stools, lapping gin from two thimbles.

The mother mouse looks up and says, “Hey, geniuses, tell me how my son got into this sorry state.”

“Bad inheritance,” says Darwin.

“Bad mothering,” says Freud.
Grandma's Experiences Leave a Mark on Your Genes

 I think in one respect, if we think about an alternative to the example I am going to give, what is assumed?

Philosophers, psychologists, cognitive scientists, and artificial intelligence researchers who study embodied cognition and the embodied mind argue that all aspects of cognition are shaped by aspects of the body. The aspects of cognition include high level mental constructs (such as concepts and categories) and human performance on various cognitive tasks (such as reasoning or judgment). The aspects of the body include the motor system, the perceptual system, the body's interactions with the environment (situatedness) and the ontological assumptions about the world that are built into the body and the brain.Embodied Cognition
By inference, can I suggest an outcome, as that alternative? Do you feel, this is a valid assumption? The counter, to the embodied mind and cognition would be?

So, I look at the subject of epigentics in as psycho-expressive state, to mean that we are limited by our biology so as to assume limitations in our thinking?

So, lets just assume I have you where I want you to be, and look at what is possibly being said. Your body limits the amount of reasoning and judgement that is possible? That your body/brain matter limits aspects of your higher mental constructs(such as concepts and categories.)

Are these valid assumptions of the embodied mind thesis if you are still thinking about the alternative?

 So, the alternative possibly is this, that there is possibly 2% of the population that is awake, and that is enough to begin to set the descendants free? So it is not just being a slave to the mind as in some dichotomy, but realizing that this alternative, is connection to the true source( where is your antenna tuned) to that of the data stream?

What is consciousness doing if it is to say that it is experiencing life as a worm? Maybe exploring its possibilities? Would you deny the ability of consciousness to experience or help consciousness to realize, that your descendants can learn to become free?

So there is that part of the population of the planet, as a group, that will help set the planet free? I do not know.

What is the current rate of thinking "that is established to believe" that exploration outside of the realms of our planet are the extensions of the beliefs that our senses are being extended as is our understanding of the universe, as we let our robots out into the universe? So, we have covered so much of the spectrum to see?

So the question is, is it possible to kick consciousness of the animal to the curb, or, if we believe consciousness is able "to experience," more, beyond the confines of the senses as, i, you, or we, is more then of the "mind being used" as too, eco me, eco you, eco we?

Now considering the topic here of Behavioral Epigenetics,  how do you see this following presentation?

Now some of you think this is a grandiose view here while when dealing up front and center with a question and answer, for what a lot have women made. I won't go into the procedure of how decisions are being made, or, will be made. What I will say is, that woman have made them.

So to get beyond the idea of the new field of study,  as some attribute to all the witch doctoring one might come to believe,  I think we should go beyond this point of view by Dr. Bruce Lipton, to investigate, how "profound change in belief"  can upset the very foundation of our biological system.

Is Epigenetics Science?

Epigenetic mechanisms are affected by several factors and processes including development in utero and in childhood, environmental chemicals, drugs and pharmaceuticals, aging, and diet. DNA methylation is what occurs when methyl groups, an epigenetic factor found in some dietary sources, can tag DNA and activate or repress genes. Histones are proteins around which DNA can wind for compaction and gene regulation. Histone modification occurs when the binding of epigenetic factors to histone “tails” alters the extent to which DNA is wrapped around histones and the availability of genes in the DNA to be activated. All of these factors and processes can have an effect on people’s health and influence their health possibly resulting in cancer, autoimmune disease, mental disorders, or diabetes among other illnesses.

Thalamocortical oscillations can be Affective?

Delta wave
Theta wave
Alpha wave
Mu wave
Beta wave
Gamma wave

Current interest in a presentation given through Stanford in a series of 6 videos had brought up for me the question of what consciousness is. A fundamental recognition of what consciousness is, as it is measured. So we speak about the different frequency ranges that are examined as "attributes of that consciousness."

Thalamocortical oscillation involves the synchronous firing of thalamic and cortical neurons at specific frequencies; in the thalamocortical system, the exact frequencies depend on current brain state and mental activity
The understanding I have in regard to this question is whether we could induce those frequency ranges as an "affect" directly through the thalamus to the whole brain. This so as to bring the whole brain toward coherence.

The human visual pathway. The lateral geniculate nucleus, a region of the thalamus, exhibits thalamocortical oscillation with the visual cortex.[7]
 Thalamocortical oscillation is thought to be responsible for the synchronization of neural activity between different regions of the cortex and is associated with the appearance of specific mental states depending on the frequency range of the most prominent oscillatory activity, gamma most associated with conscious, selective concentration on tasks,[8] learning (perceptual and associative),[9] and short-term memory.[10] Magnetoencephalography (MEG) has been used to show that during conscious perception, gamma-band frequency electrical activity and thalamocortical resonance prominently occurs in the human brain.[2] Absence of these gamma-band patterns correlates with nonconscious states and is characterized by the presence of lower-frequency oscillations instead.Relation to brain activity -Recurrent thalamo-cortical resonance -

 The answering of this question through experimental validation had come through in a couple of what I am regarding as those, which could reach these measured brain states, as in TM, or in use as a binaural method. As listed through the lectures such evidence while directly not attributed to sound, was revealed in a question by a audience member in the last video , We Create Our Reality.

Psychoacoustics is the scientific study of sound perception. More specifically, it is the branch of science studying the psychological and physiological responses associated with sound (including speech and music). It can be further categorized as a branch of psychophysics.



Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα "wave") is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid.[1] Different patterns emerge in the exitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.

A thought had occurred to me a long time ago with regard idea of using  polymerization substances as a technique in order to bring concrete into a orderly and fast solid state process.

This was an answer to how through such a dream period, I observed I had used such a process so as to create designs to incorporate into a lattice screen with which to divide a room.

In the absence of gravity looking to space above  earth,  such molecular arrangements were significant to me about how pureness could have been attained regarding a "crystallization process."

So the thoughts had occurred to me that in a three dimensional context of the chaldni plate(2 dimensional expression) what may be adhering inside any boxed frame of reference to say that it would be "coherent" so as to be brought into a pattern matching this particular sound. How far a leap then too, lets say bring brain coherence into a EEG state of consciousness.

As you notice with the following, I upgraded the current thought process of the demonstration of the 6 videos in length,  to suggest an approach to how we see a science develop out of an approach using consciousness.

Well I think most definitely it is an attitude that is born out of a position you adopted for sure.

Here;s the point.....every thing that is discussed in TM is functional without ever having to talking about using of this method.

The underlying sources in recognition of the philosophy is all there and it is academic in it's settings. So they used that to demonstrate the logic of their approach, and ultimate realization to say its all string or its all consciousness as a demonstration of this Unified Field.

There is a ole and ancient philosophy tied to this by correlation which is of Vedic and correlated to a leader of such thought.

Throw the leader aside and the religious association to money making schemes as to set each of us within a intonation, and we go on our way to delving into the relationship of the deeper thinking mind. This capability already exists within our range of thinking if we but learn to relax, sit by a stream or water fall, and you do not have to divest yourself of the reason with which you look at the world.

So the realization that everything is sound, is a conversion process that takes place in the mind as to describing what we have already described in the physics as measure, so we turn our language over to see collisions processes as described this way.

There is nothing wrong with seeing this way as long as you stay with the theoretic and physics of high energy approach.

So resonance in the brain matter, is as an affective state of consciousness,  is a measure of frequency of the brain. Such a measure along side of showing what state your mind is in through different examinations is equally as valid as to the approach of the method of TM,  while recognizing the underlying philosophy of approach.

The attempts of seeing such characters as one might mention in Castaneda as a fictional portrayal at best,  as we have now come to know. Isn't this much like the theory of form as we discuss the method underlying the talk of forms in our approach as we listen to a story that Plato may have written about Socrates?

These forms are like qualitative examinations at the basis of thought become extrapolated to the world at large, so we see literature used to speak about a question and answer,  as we are lead to the forms of the story.

The push toward an answer beyond a certain point in the physics of the big bang is then supplemented with some thing even much deeper then the equations that have taken us to a current time within the expression of the big bang, to realize that all around us now is consciousness in expression, are elements of the language to suggest, that such evidence exists at this very moment all around us.

We might have looked at the latest gravitational foot print to call it B modes in the WMAP? That is a conversion to the application of sound? So what are we saying? That gravity,  is like sound?

Particulates as a measure of the energy  as a frequency of sound. So you see the move to describe matter in another way may have been a revelation of a kind that was lead to a subjective form of reasoning that was deductive. So in that moment, where was consciousness as a measure of the state of the mattered brain as it explored??

AI's State of Affairs

Human-level control through deep reinforcement learning
-The theory of reinforcement learning provides a normative account1, deeply rooted in psychological2 and neuroscientific3 perspectives on animal behaviour, of how agents may optimize their control of an environment. To use reinforcement learning successfully in situations approaching real-world complexity, however, agents are confronted with a difficult task: they must derive efficient representations of the environment from high-dimensional sensory inputs, and use these to generalize past experience to new situations. Remarkably, humans and other animals seem to solve this problem through a harmonious combination of reinforcement learning and hierarchical sensory processing systems4, 5, the former evidenced by a wealth of neural data revealing notable parallels between the phasic signals emitted by dopaminergic neurons and temporal difference reinforcement learning algorithms3. While reinforcement learning agents have achieved some successes in a variety of domains6, 7, 8, their applicability has previously been limited to domains in which useful features can be handcrafted, or to domains with fully observed, low-dimensional state spaces. Here we use recent advances in training deep neural networks9, 10, 11 to develop a novel artificial agent, termed a deep Q-network, that can learn successful policies directly from high-dimensional sensory inputs using end-to-end reinforcement learning. We tested this agent on the challenging domain of classic Atari 2600 games12. We demonstrate that the deep Q-network agent, receiving only the pixels and the game score as inputs, was able to surpass the performance of all previous algorithms and achieve a level comparable to that of a professional human games tester across a set of 49 games, using the same algorithm, network architecture and hyperparameters. This work bridges the divide between high-dimensional sensory inputs and actions, resulting in the first artificial agent that is capable of learning to excel at a diverse array of challenging tasks.


This demo follows the description of the Deep Q Learning algorithm described in Playing Atari with Deep Reinforcement Learning, a paper from NIPS 2013 Deep Learning Workshop from DeepMind. The paper is a nice demo of a fairly standard (model-free) Reinforcement Learning algorithm (Q Learning) learning to play Atari games.

In this demo, instead of Atari games, we'll start out with something more simple: a 2D agent that has 9 eyes pointing in different angles ahead and every eye senses 3 values along its direction (up to a certain maximum visibility distance): distance to a wall, distance to a green thing, or distance to a red thing. The agent navigates by using one of 5 actions that turn it different angles. The red things are apples and the agent gets reward for eating them. The green things are poison and the agent gets negative reward for eating them. The training takes a few tens of minutes with current parameter settings.

Over time, the agent learns to avoid states that lead to states with low rewards, and picks actions that lead to better states instead.

Visualizations are Important

String theorists describe the physics of black holes in five-dimensional space-time. They found that these five-dimensional objects provide a good approximation of the quark-gluon plasma in one fewer dimension, a relationship similar to the one between a three-dimensional object and its two-dimensional shadow.

Recreating the conditions present just after the Big Bang has given experimentalists a glimpse into how the universe formed. Now, scientists have begun to see striking similarities between the properties of the early universe and a theory that aims to unite gravity with quantum mechanics, a long-standing goal for physicists.
“Combining calculations from experiments and theories could help us capture some universal characteristic of nature,” said MIT theoretical physicist Krishna Rajagopal, who discussed these possibilities at the recent Quark Matter conference in Annecy, France.

One millionth of a second after the Big Bang, the universe was a hot, dense sea of freely roaming particles called quarks and gluons. As the universe rapidly cooled, the particles joined together to form protons and neutrons, and the unique state of matter known as quark-gluon plasma disappeared. See: String theory may hold answers about quark-gluon plasma
