This weekend I was grateful to participate in a conference called “Does Neuroscience Need a Revolution to Understand Consciousness?” Roger Penrose and Deepak Chopra were also presenters. The title of my talk, which was delivered in two parts, was: “Does Light Have Speed—Or Does Light Have Density?”
The idea is simple. In a holographic universe, the speed of light is the baseline. The speed of light is like the flat trampoline mat. To one side (below the mat), as we create light that is denser than light, we also create dark energy. To the other side (above the mat), as we create light that is more diffuse than light, we also create dark matter.
I feel my relationship “to the mat” (to the speed of light) most acutely in my blood. To dip below the mat, I need vitamin K1. To rise above the mat, I need vitamin K2. But dipping below the mat (“moon”) and rising above the mat (“sun”) also introduce issues of scale. If my new RBCs are too large, I become trapped below the mat. If my new RBCs are too small, I become trapped above the mat. We are seeing RBC changes in Long COVID, and I believe issues of scale may play a role in many other disease states.I have a peer-review paper, “Am I Too Pixelated?” in Science & Philosophy.
In cold weather, when my RBCs are too large—when my rendering of my body is too tight, too small—they cannot enter the tiny capillaries in my fingertips (Reynaud’s). I am in menopause now, and I occasionally have a “Reynaud’s” feeling in my brain. Creating an insulin spike—eating high-sugar snack—remedies it, at least temporarily.
In a holographic universe, there may be different ways to render the same light. I can be “earth” (so to speak). Or, like an ice skater pulling in for a twirl, I can be “moon inside sun.” When I am moon inside sun, it is as if I am inside myself. No longer the flower, I am the fruit and the seed. The image is no longer whole; instead of wholeness, there is now a homunculus against a background—something smaller inside something larger—a kernel, and a context. To the left of time, I am denser than light. To the right of time, I am more diffuse.
Moon’s size: 27.27% of earth’s size. Moon’s orbital period: 27.27 days. The sun is 400 times larger than the moon—and also 400 times farther away. These images are being rendered by our brains. In sun and moon, are we seeing the same light—the same trampoline mat—from different directions? Are moon and sun actually just the upper and lower limits of our sight—time’s “floor” and “ceiling”—like the small and the large end of a ship’s spy glass?
Does light have speed? It depends whom you ask. Perhaps, to light that is denser than light, it will appear that light has speed. To light that is more diffuse than light, it will appear that light has density. How is my brain—my pineal gland—interpreting the light I perceive?
