To say that the material world is emergent is like saying that we live in a world made of ice, but ice is made of something else: water. I’m saying that we live in a world made of matter, but matter is made of something else: light.
Ice cannot travel at water’s speed. Only water can travel at water’s speed. To travel at water’s speed, ice has to change states. If ice is water to begin with, it is changing states twice. First it is condensing, then it is expanding.
Perhaps this is also true of the world.
I am suggesting that the world is made of light, i.e. that light is the a priori fabric of the cosmos. To appear as light, light can either condense and then expand—to the left of time. Or it can expand and then condense—to the right of time.
Light’s speed, in other words, is a round trip. But the “round trip” is an illusion. If I decelerate to a certain degree less than the speed of light, I can accelerate to a proportionate degree. If I slow down to half the speed of light, I can speed up to twice the speed of light—or so it seems. I am not truly eclipsing the speed of light; my impression of acceleration is a function of my previous deceleration. And my perception of deceleration is a function of my previous acceleration.
If light is the a priori state (if, in the beginning, everything is light), its speed is zero. Matter will perceive the movement toward light’s speed as positive (acceleration); energy will perceive the movement toward light’s speed as negative (deceleration).
Vitamin K helps the blood coagulate, the bones hold together, the brain process glutamate, and the body manufacture matrix GLA protein. Vitamin K is what my body uses to hold together as it accelerates and decelerates. Vitamin K helps me hold together when I accelerate (positive acceleration, to the left of time); or when I decelerate (negative acceleration, to the right of time).
As I reached 50 years old, my body has been perceiving itself as deficient in vitamin K, whose absorption is tied to estrogen levels in the body. If my level of vitamin K—which will prevent me from excessively bleeding—is not high enough, my body will not allow me to menstruate.
This relative deficiency of vitamin K is also affecting my cognition. I am one of the many researchers, like Dr. Lisa Mosconi at Weill Cornell Medical College, who sees a relationship between menopause and Alzheimer’s. My brain wants to spin at the speed of light, but in order to increase my spin rate, I need vitamin K, to increase my density. I have to slow down, in order to speed up. I must be able to decelerate (left of time) in order to accelerate (right of time). Otherwise, I am just treading water, and not really going anywhere.
Similarly, when I tried micro dose LSD, I felt my cognition improve—and I found myself craving vitamin K.
So, if I am experiencing myself as deficient in vitamin K, why not just take vitamin K? Because I cannot always trust my perception of myself. I am afraid my brain is misperceiving time as being faster than it truly is, and I worry that it would over-utilize vitamin K, and make my blood clot too much. My body uses serotonin to speed time up, and dopamine to slow time down, and I worry I am in a hyper-serotonin state.
In other words, it is not as simple as saying “I am deficient in vitamin K.” It would be more accurate to say that I have the perception that I am deficient in K, or that there is a relative K deficiency. The true root cause of the problem may be that my spin rate is too high. It could be that I am “too much matter” (like saying I am “too much ice”) i.e. I am too dense, and have not changed states apace with the universe. If I am too dense, my spin rate (my perception of the speed of light) will be too high, and adding more vitamin K will only feed the problem.
