Andrius Kulikauskas: Welcome! This is where I record my latest research notes. The (nonassociative) octonions are perhaps related to the (associative) splitbiquaternions, as the Lie group embedding unfolds, by considering that we don't know whether we Humans are living in the reflected world (based in God's mind) or unreflected world (based in our self), in the chain Human's view of God's view of Human's view... We may not know if we are living in the {$V_+$} or {$V_$} of the splitbiquaternions. This may give rise to an ambiguity, and also, a choice between our God and our self. That choice and that ambiguity may ground nonassociativity of perspectives, distinguishing between stepping out [Child's view of (Father's view of Mother's view)] and stepping in [(Child's view of Father's view) of Mother's view]. When associativity no longer holds, the system collapses, and we have zero objectively, and perhaps the field with one element, subjectively. Todd Trimble: You may know that Wolfgang Pauli was in analysis with a Jungian psychologist, in the early 1930's (with Jung keeping a close watch over the case); he was in some mental distress before the analysis and may have thought he was going insane. It's probably not as well known that the analysis of Pauli's dreams, which Pauli worked very hard on with his analyst, became essentially part II of Jung's Psychology and Alchemy. The course of the analysis more or less concluded with a spontaneous vision (or perhaps it was a very vivid dream) Pauli had, of a kind of 4dimensional "World Clock", which Pauli in his conscious reflections subsequently experienced as a kind of healing synthesis or culmination of the analysis. I imagine that for Pauli, this was connected in some way with quaternions and Pauli matrices and so forth and so on.
The quantum world receives a question and its answer given does not change, thus remeasurement does not yield a new answer. The language is degenerate. Meaning is given to the language by the answer. A basis is thereby chosen.
Linear complex structure {$J_i$} is a perspective. A shift in perspective from {$J_i$} to {$J_j$} is their product {$J_iJ_j$}. Together they define a quaternionic structure. What is the meaning of longer products of perspectives? Basis is a context, supplies a context, provides a context. The number of bases involved is the context. Reflection is not commutative with regard to a linear complex structure. In the orthogonal group, commuting means that we have some eigenvector. Show that geometry is based on eight levels as organized by Bott periodicity. Then show that this means that the possible geometries are very limited as given by the inner products and the classical Lie groups, which participate in Bott periodicity. Slack is modeled by complex conjugacy. {$J_1$} is a linear complex structure which models the unconscious, adding a perspective {$+1$}. {$J_2$} adds an antilinear operator which models reflection and a perspective on a perspective. Together they yield the conscious. {$J_3$} divides the space on which these act into two parallel spaces, thus is a perspective upon a perspective on a perspective. Together they are consciousness. {$J_3J_4$} defines an isometry between the two spaces. Ant semiotics  remove noise like quantum computing. Noisefree environment (isolated subsystem) is the quantum world. Think of divisions of everything as an adjoint functor to the application of a linear complex structure on a symmetric space. In what sense is a linear complex structure the going beyond of oneself? Sean Carroll. Quanta and Fields. https://amzn.to/3R7ahLp Seth Lloyd. Computing universe. Variable based causation (plural) vs. Instance of causation (singular). Assignment is asymmetric (computer science), equality is symmetric (math). Compare this with linear complex structure. Body shape is not determined by the genome but by electromagnetic activity. The genome works locally. Unit quaternions {$SU(2)$} have 2 irreducible representations. 3x3 matrices of real numbers. And 2x2 matrices of complex numbers. The latter are spinors. The even subalgebra of a Clifford algebra {$Cl_{0,n+1}$} is the Clifford algebra {$Cl_{0,n}$}. The unit elements of that Clifford algebra is the spin group {$Sp(n+1)$}. Essentia Foundation Bernardo Kastrup. Accepts submission arguing against metaphysical materialism. Complex numbers metaphysically: "This" (even = 1) vs. "that" (odd = i). Dialogue beween two people. "This" refers to what they have, "that" refers to what the other has. Similarly with "I" and "You". Six postulates of quantum mechanics
fermion with those of another. Electronic spin must be included in this set of coordinates. Freeman J. Dyson. The Threefold Way. Algebraic Structure of Symmetry Groups and Ensembles in Quantum Mechanics. J. Math. Phys. 3, 1199–1215 (1962) Symmetry breaking distinguishes vectors and spinors. We can carve up mental space from either end, in the (+1) and (1) directions, or both ends (+2), arriving at {$Cl_{4,0}\cong Cl_{0,4}$}. How to understand (+3)? Compare Clifford algebras with chain complexes. {$A_1$} is the building block for Lie theory and its Lie algebra serves both {$SU(2)$} and {$SO(3)$}, thus relates vectors and spinors, and seems relevant for Bott periodicity. Could the exceptional Lie groups {$E_k$} be generated by Bott periodicity? A symmetric space has, at each point, a (global) isometry that (locally) inverts each tangent vector. Compare that with symmetry where we reflect across the center of a space. In John Baez's talk on the symmetric space, the functor acts on the category of representations of Clifford algebras, which is the category relevant for Morita equivalence. Doubling, halving, dividing a perspective (a space, a module) into two perspectives, yielding a perspective on a perspective. In a complex Clifford algebra, the coefficient {$i$} commutes with all of the generators {$e_k$} whereas the generators anticommute with each other. If the coefficient {$i$} anticommuted with all of the generators, then this would simply be a real Clifford algebra with one more generator. So this is a very deep fact that distinguishes complex and real Clifford algebras. Think of Clifford algebra generators that square to {$1$} as spinors, and those that square to {$+1$} as vectors. Each generator can be thought of as yielding a turn of {$\pi=180^\circ$}. Does that make sense? Thomas Metzinger book. The Ego Tunnel. https://herbspencer.academia.edu Herb Spencer Collecting meaningful experiences in life Associativity means that there is no need for an external observer to place parentheses. There is internal consistency. There is no need for an external sense of time. Time makes sense internally.
Rulead space generated by three minds, the three possible rules on the eight cycle. Higgs boson flips chirality of fermions, which yields their mass. Just like frequency yields energy. So they are flipping between universes. Neutrinos do not flip in this way. They are stuck in our universe. Active inference explains how people are inclined to confirm their biases. The purpose of consciousness is to force people to confront their biases, to investigate, to take a sober, honest look, which way is it. twosome: linear vs. antilinear. Antilinear swaps i with its conjugate i in going from inside to outside or vice versa. Thus antilinear is "opposites coexist" and models free will. https://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/IncludeOtherPages

Entropy
Entropy = nondeliberateness. How is this related to unconscious (nondeliberate) and conscious (deliberate)?
Maximum entropy distribution = least informative distribution. Consider all permutations of all lengths. (In considering the moments.) This is similar to {$O(\infty)$} or {$U(\infty)$} which considers all rotations. There is a theorem that relates them. And consider how to take the Fourier transform of all of that. And how does that relate to the Fourier transform of finite groups? Knowledge engineering
Peirce's squirrel. What is the definition of "around"? The same definition > different definitions. Contradiction yields distinction. Explanatory reasoning. Foursome (four causes) as four explanations. Does an index (how) rely on abduction? Geometry describes things in the world. In response to Daniel Ari Friedman's and Eirik Søvik's distinction of forward test and reverse test, consider the hierarchy of evidence which I use. For me, the most important is the limits of imagination as given by my introspection  what I see with my own eyes, that is, my mind's eye. The least important  but of ultimate importance when there is no data  is my aesthetic sense  but perhaps even beyond that is my consciousness of my own ignorance. In between, or perhaps even in a different dimension, is empirical, factual data from science, and the theories that grounds, which I would not want to contradict, and also testimonies about life from others and myself. In general, there is negative evidence  what I would not want to contradict  and positive evidence  what I affirm that I observe. We engage our faces. But imagine a dog who engages, smells my butt. The dog could conclude that my gut's ecosystem is conscious. In general, we could consider how a creature such as a computer would analyze our consciousness. Consider the ways that ants figure things out  as the basis for consciousness. Schwitzgebel  consciousness of the United States Daniel Ari Friedman https://cognitivesecurity.us Interpret the combinatorics of Associated Legendre polynomials, and substituting {$\cos\;\theta$} and {$\sin\;\theta$}, the related spherical harmonics. Consider how they integrate with the Laguerre polynomials. Understand how they describe the possible states of the hydrogen atom and the periodic table of elements. Think of a series of low energy pits. Consider quantum tunneling as an outcome of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, that because of this uncertainty, there is a definite probability of a particle appearing in another pit. Also, think about what Heisenberg's uncertainty principle means for the particle itself, as with regard to itself, it is completely definite. What does that imply? The Kreb cycle functions as a switch, turning forwards or backwards. Does one direction (energy?) represent the unconsious +1, the other direction (growth?) represent the conscious +2, with consciouness functioning as the switch? Can we foster alternation between stepping in and stepping out? Think about characterizing the chemical soup in which interactions take place. There is the solvent (like water) and the solute forming a uniformly distributed solution. Can there be a gradient? Then pH is an important characteristic which can lead to an electric gradient if there is a boundary with a zone with a different charge or different pH. Causality is about the granularity of explanation. Determinism would be total granularity and supposed God as an observer. Reproduction  replication  is a type of flow, recurring activity, a form of persistence in terms of flow rather than material Kevin Mitchell, Henry Potter. Naturalising Agent Causation
How does matter antimatter asymmetry relate to the two branches of {$O(\infty)$} and the weak force? How do the growth structures (causal trees) of orthogonal polynomials relate to group representations (such as pairs of Young tableaux  pairs of causal trees)? How are pairs of permutations (which are pairs of involutions) related to pairs of involutions (as with the Hermite polynomials)? Do the pairs of Hermite polynomials relate to the RobinsonSchensted algorithm? Electron shells are given by twice the square {$2n^2$} which yields {$2,8,18,32,50...$} And the square number is understood as the sum of odd numbers: {$1+3+5+7+...$}. The {$2$} is the spin of the electron which we can think of as two sides of the square (as a sheet of paper). The shells (their odd number portions) are filled in a zigzag pattern. This is based on the radial model of the hydrogen atom.
Duality of burning and assembling in biochemistry. Duality of flow and structure in the 24 ways of figuring things out in neuroscience. Duality in Christopher Alexander's patterns of structure and recurring activity. Orthogonal Sheffer polynomial recurrence relation has 5 inputs. 3 are firststep, external, weighted, meaningful in the broader environment. 2 are later step, dependent on {$n$} or {$n(n1)$}, meaningful internally. The pair of causal trees  the squaring of the wave function  may be expressing sexual combination. Consider the waste products that biological activity removes such as {$CO_2$} from animals and {$O_2$} from plants and how the waste products relate to inputs. Thus how different living beings or different organs are different parts of the cycle. Consider how these pieces may be put together as divisions of everything. How does that relate to language? Carbon reacts with a single electron in a link, a onestep causality. Oxygen reacts with two electrons in a kink, twostep causality. The wave equation  and waves in general  are expressions of analytic symmetry. The second type of matching polynomial has remarkable connections with orthogonal polynomials. For instance, if G = Km,n, the complete bipartite graph, then the second type of matching polynomial is related to the generalized Laguerre polynomial Lnα(x) by the identity:
If G is the complete graph Kn, then MG(x) is an Hermite polynomial:
where Hn(x) is the "probabilist's Hermite polynomial" (1) in the definition of Hermite polynomials. These facts were observed by Godsil (1981).
4+2 elements for organic molecules
Alpha helix  amino acids relate to those which are three steps above in the chain, thus this gives the operation +3. Lectures on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions Ne per brangi knyga. Think of {$\alpha$} and {$\beta$} as the steps in two frames that are centered on two events. If {$\alpha=\beta=0$}, then the two frames coincide and so the kinematics collapses, the edge statistics collapse. Think of life as an attractor. Express attractors in terms of Wondrous Wisdom.

MeixnerPollaczek polynomials have complex conjugate weights {$\alpha$} and {$\beta=\bar\alpha$} but actually they appear as link weight {$\alpha \bar\alpha$} which is real, and kink weight {$\alpha\bar\alpha$} which is real. Note that the kink is the full portion (the amplitude) of {$\alpha$} whereas the link is twice the real portion. Thus the kink is a measure of entanglement, of the imaginary portion. Oxygen, nitrogen, carbon are like the twosome, threesome, foursome of organic chemistry. It is not the atoms but their valences that matter. Thus they belong not to the world of matter but to the world of lack of matter, thus of flow. Integrating the square of the wave function with a definite integral  summing over the step function of the orthogonality equation for the Meixner polynomials  is simply a way of grouping together combinatorial objects, and if you like, giving a linear weight to them (if you are dealing with nonintegers). But you can group them in other ways as well  so this interpreation is superior to that of the wave function. It lets you think of measuring (grouping) units of information in different ways. The longer you run an experiment (as at CERN), the more causality you introduce (in terms of labels n). So time is given by {$n$}, where {$n$} indicates the maximal power of {$x$}. This means that time is relative to, for example, energy. Relate Grassmannian minors to elementary symmetric functions of eigenvalues Sheffer polynomial coefficients can be expressed in terms of elementary symmetric functions. How does that relate to the particle clocks? And {$\alpha$} and {$\beta$}? And do those relate to the forgotten symmetric functions with the two different kinds of labels? How do Dynkin diagrams relate to organic molecules such as sugars? Open Learning Initiative. Biochemistry Course. Yale. Freshman Organic Chemistry Scientific American. Christof Koch.

Symmetry and the Monster. Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 1 Tet1 gene Charles Chihara. A Structural Account of Mathematics. Truth is that which cannot be hidden, in other words, what is obvious. This is very much like the Greek word Aletheia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aletheia This comes up in Wondrous Wisdom as the negation of Whether, that level of knowledge that considers whether a cup is in a cupboard even if nobody sees it. Truth means there is no such Whether. Similarly, negating What means there is no intermediary, our relationship is Direct. Negating How means there is no becoming, there is Constancy. Negating Why means there is no allencompassing, there is Signficance. True, Direct, Constant, Significant are the negations of the levels of the Foursome and they are also the four conceptions of the Nullsome, which is to say, God. God is True, Direct, Constant, Significant. I suppose that means that God is not a subject of knowledge, is not defined by knowledge, is not evoked by knowledge. Imagination acts through external relationships but there is also internal structure, beyond the imagination. Lie algebra is not associative but rather acts like the production for a Turing machine.

In analytic geometry, there is the implicit function theorem and so can talk of homeomorphisms. But this is lacking in algebraic geometry, where the square root is not invertible. But there is an infinitesimal analogue that the derivative at each point, which is a linear transformation, should be invertible. Lawvere 2012 5:50 Traditional philosophical notions for thousands of years could be given a mathematical formulation sufficiently general using the most uptodate technology we have in mathematics, i.e., topos theory, etc., etc., could be given a formulation which almost fully captures the philosophical content and not just some fragment of it so that philosophical calucations could become open to some degree to calculation as Leibniz, for example, dreamed.

But the Yoneda Lemma shows that mathematics can model a notion of How and distinguish it from what is not How. Light can go backwards in time. Double "time slit" experiment. How to interpret this?

And how could the (lefthanded or righthanded) chirality of spinors relate to those two branches? How can there be joint intentionality for a culture of individual unfolding. Robin Hartshorne. Algebraic Geometry. Idea: The threesome is what links together the two worlds of O(infinty). The threesome equates a shift in one world with a node in another world and vice versa.

Top down reamplification  higher modules (conscious awareness) ask questions to senses (unconscious) in response to stimulus from senses.

"The Kingdom of God is within you". Material and spiritual intertwined. Is padic geometry related to fractions and thus the number of bits of information needed to express that? Is simultaneous CPT transformation the same as switching us from rotations to reflected rotations? Are there two parts of {$O(\infty)$}? And is this like the unconscious and the conscious, where the conscious is a reflected version of the unconscious? Since the classical Lie families present the symmetry in counting forwards and backwards, could the exception Lie groups and algebras present the symmetry in counting on an eightcycle, using and not using a certain number of tracks? Could there be four geometries based on the four normed division algebras? Real, complex, quaternion, octonion? and their projective planes? But the symplectic geometry seems based on quaternions. What would octonion geometry mean? Lie groups and algebras capture the symmetries in math by capturing how basic structures can operate in both algebra and analysis simultaneously.

Wave function arises when two systems interact. As given by orthogonal Sheffer polynomials. In Lie group for rotations, SO(3), the bracket of [x,y] gives you z.

Conformal and analytic is the same. Energy can be defined as the "separation constant" in Schroedinger's equation. If we can separate the wave function into a time dependent function and a position dependent function, then we can segregate the two sides of the equation so that one side depends on time, the other side depends on position, and both sides are constant, and that constant is the energy. Peter Scholze  condensed math
Absolutism based on relativism is good. Relativism based on absolutism is bad. Objectivity based on subjectivity is good. Subjectivity based on objectivity is bad. The mind that does not know is based on the mind that knows and not the other way around. This is the rule of consciousness and the basis for morality. There is a gap between the quantum ether (the quantum foam) and the waves that propagate through it. Particles don't exist, particles are the medium. Waves exist in the medium. Folk psychology. Daniel Dennett suggested studying this. Contact him.
In the book on interpretations of quantum mechanics, there is the question of what is real. For example, in electromagnetism, the gauge can be adjusted by adding any gradient. This can change whether the change is transmitted by the speed of light or whether that speed is infinite and it happens instantaneously. But these two scenarios also raise the question of the reality of the "wiggle". What is real is a moral choice. Is the medium real? Or is the wiggling real? The wiggling creates the wave that moves across the medium. The medium is made of particles and antiparticles that appear from the foam.

Creating what you can feel certain about. (Continuity.)
A few of the best math explainers from this summer Stone's theorem: continuous implies differentiable "belt trick", aka the "Dirac scissors" or "Balinese candle dance When two events happen (the measurement of spins) there is a frame where one happens before the other. So if they are causally connected (as with spin measurements) there needs to be a distinguished frame. But that could be the frame in which they were initially entangled. So entanglement posits the existence of such a distinguished frame. Path integrals depend on the number of points in space, or the number of interactions. But my approach suggests that this number is actually given by the degree of x in the relevant polynomial. Quantum computing
Amelia: [The axiom of function extensionality is] inconsistent with many axioms of a more "computational" nature. For example, "formal Church's thesis" says that for any function N→N, there is a "program" (we call it a realizer) that realizes it. You can kinda see what goes wrong: this would be able to tell e.g. "λ x → x" and "λ x → x + 0" apart. You could imagine an assignment of realizers that sidesteps this, though, so to see that it's actually inconsistent takes slightly more work. Have all finite limits is equivalent to

https://ww3.math.ucla.edu/dls/emilyriehl/ video about contractibility An isomorphism is a special morphism but truly it is a pair of morphisms that are inverses to each other. There may be many such pairs relating two objects but in each pair the inverses are unique with respect to each other. So it is similar to complex conjugation. https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/989083/iscompositionofcoveringmapscoveringmap Įvairūs

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CE%9C_operator {$\mu$}operator A qubit specifies the relation between affirmation and negation of probabilities. In matrix form, it provides a complex number which is the coefficient that gets multiplied to the negation (in calculating the new affirmation) and whose conjugate gets multipled to the affirmation (in calculating the new negation). In classical bits, this coefficient is simply zero. Bekaert, Boulanger.
