Jazz offered the teaser of what a circle looks like when it is on its side and we are in a 2-dimensional world: a line. My response was what does it look like when we are in the middle of the circle: we are surrounded on all sides…but on the one hand, there is no above or below, just ‘around us’; while on the other hand, if we are contained in a 2-dimensional world, there has to be above and below…we somewhat only perceive the sides, but we are surrounded in all directions whether we can perceive the other planes or not: we are contained.
In looking at the construct of an atom, the electron orbits the nucleus and it does so at a specific distance to it, showing that an atom has a heck of a lot of free space in its composition. Putting yourself in that 2-dimensional world again and being the nucleus, you would perceive that you are a disc-proton next to a line-neutron that you cannot see behind, and on every other side you would somewhat perceive a line that is apparently the same thickness all along it – the shell the electron journeys upon quite fast, creating a wave of electromagnetic energy that appears to be a ‘line’. If we take a snap-shot of the electron in its motion, we would either see it as a very small line in one specific direction, or not see it at all as it is either behind the neutron-line, or is anywhere else in its motion about its shell of its 3-dimensional world.
In that very small snap-shot-moment, you world perceive near-absolute freedom to go in every direction away from your neighbouring neutron-line, or even move around that neutron-line to discover it is a smooth, wide line that is pretty much exactly as your own disc-shape, and be able to go in every direction…except for that little electron-line trapped on the same plane as you: you could go to that electron-line and move around it to discover it is a smooth, short line that is very much like your own disc-shape. You could have that as one location, the neutron as another location, and your freedom of movement now goes anywhere you care, with the observation that one little line linked to the other little line observes sign posts of where you began from: what used to be ‘the middle’. The wonder of this becomes apparent when you move away from your ‘middle’ and get nearer to another atom caught in its own snap-shot-moment.
In this world, only the protons can move; the neutrons are trapped in place; electrons are either on the plane or not, and there is the vast amount of space that can be journeyed through by you and every other proton-line you meet. Let’s adjust the snap-shot-moment to be one that is staggered in its motion of time: one moment is snap-shot, the next moment is not. You go from being free to being contained; you go from being near neutron-lines or proton-lines to being wholly alone and contained either within an electron-shell-line, or between several of them where their distance from you appears to show a dashed-line on all sides…oh, to be caught in that place where your perception shows areas of no-go and areas of go-where-you-like. (In all this, you are allowed to be away from your companion neutron and electron that keeps you alive because of something called ‘spooky action at a distance’ where the energy needed to keep the three of you ‘alive’ still works, no matter where you are.)
In all of this, the only thing being adjusted is time, which gives observations of containment, absolute freedom, or a slitted barrier offering up specific directions of freedom…it all comes down to the moment and what can be perceived around you at a specific moment against another specific moment.
1. So…is it possible for us to choose our moments because we are complete constructs of atoms with vast amounts of free space within us where electrons in their shells are shared between atoms which keeps us ‘whole’?
2. Is our mind free to move outside our skull because of ‘spooky action at a distance’?
3. Is ‘the holographic universe’ - which even Ron likes to play with – a poor description for pure energy caught in various time-moments which either offer up form or freedom?
4. And what do we perceive around us that looks like we are trapped on all sides when in fact, there are two specific directions of complete freedom that we cannot even perceive but know exist?
(okay, this is a 5-dimensional work needing a 6th sense to appreciate, so go with your gut-feeling…that place where butterflies live)
