In a nutshell, it is a hypothetical framework that unites the physical world around us with our mental world. These separate regions can be combined into single entity that can be expressed conceptually as

'minspace = matter + mind'.

In thought theory, the universe is described as a dualistic hyper-dimensional space, called mindspace. It has *physical* dimensions and *abstract* dimensions that intersect one another.

Mindspace is the region where symbols exist - structures that intersect meaning and matter.

From *a physical space perspective*, one does not "see" the hyper-dimensions of mindspace; they can only be "experienced" by living creatures. The abstract dimensions are completely invisible pathways interconnecting thoughts, ideas, and other minds.

From the perspective of *the entire hyper-dimensional space* every arrangement of matter is connected to both the physical and abstract dimensions of mindspace simultaneously.

For example, instead of perceiving a discrete human being in mindspace, one would see his entire 'hyper-dimensional footprint' - represented by a series of patterns. These patterns relate a being and its mind to all aspects of its life, including its family, home, possessions, and ideals.

In thought theory, the mindspace is arranged into patterns (that go on to form symbols).

I believe that the descriptions for all things are best understood as a collective 'mindspace' founded on **5 specific types of relationships**. Describing the existence of mindspace with respect to these 5 unique relationship patterns is the basis of Theory of Thought: Symbolism.

Thought Theory generally hypothesizes that the 5 relationship patterns weave together a hidden mathematical framework, and from this framework springs an entire theory on the makeup of mind, matter, and symbolism.

]]>Symbols are the objects and ideas around us that our minds value, because they mean something. Symbols are a function of intelligent thought, and everything around us is symbolic in some way. Thought theory seeks to deconstruct the inner and outer workings of these abstract/intelligent sources of value called 'symbols'.

'Symbols exist within the union of thought and matter'.

There is a region of intersection (ie. venn diagram) between ideas and things that holds a form of value that a mind can perceive.

Does this value really exist in time and space or is it just fictitious and imaginary?

Many people rationalize that intelligent forms of value only exist within a brain and are independent from physical reality.

However in thought theory, there is a direct relationship between the localized, abstract values in our minds and the arrangements of matter around us. In effect, these abstract symbols are the foundation for how everything is positioned and related within the Universe.

If you in fact do believe that both mind and matter are connected, have you ever considered its mathematical proof? How does one go about proving that matter moves because hyperdimensional structures called symbols are being manipulated by our minds? How can we precisely predict physical movement by measuring the interaction between symbols?

How well do we truly understand the motion of symbols within our collective minds?

We've become great at *manipulating* information, but I don't think that we really have a clue as to how each piece of information relates back to symbolism.

I believe that our incomplete understanding on the mathematics of information *is* the fundamental source for most of our societal problems. That's why I wrote this theory - to explain information, symbols, and an abstract space that motivates all minds and bodies on Earth.

Technically, we have been able to ignore it; and because of the ignorance, a great deal of complexity has been unleashed into the world.

People are doing things while mostly blind to their causes! They are being controlled by abstract symbols that can unconsciously manipulate anyone.

*Since information works across hyper-dimensional pathways that join our individual minds, if its distributed incorrectly between minds, it will always lead to unintended sequences of events.*

Basically, we're missing the mathematical vision to reveal the hyper-dimensional pathways that interfere with our ability to make decisions.

And by the way, everyone is affected, even the rich and powerful.

It is crucial, that within this age of information, we develop a theory that explains *what* information really is, *where* it exists within the universe, and *how* our brains and minds process it.

In Theory of Thought, I reveal that information is constructed from *symbols*, which are in turn built by the 5 relationship patterns:

A symbol, as a series of relationship patterns, is the basic construct of information.

All forms of life tap into this hidden region of the Universe, and draw energy from symbols.

Understanding the full extent of how symbols rule the world around us will require a re-examination of just about everything.

And I also believe that a structured science of symbols will lead us into a wiser era.

**The Basic Philosophy of Symbols within Thought Theory:**

- All symbols store meaning.
- Symbols are a mixture of thought (abstract) and matter (physical).
- Symbols are things that can be visualized. Every symbol can be described with an image.
- Symbols are the basic building blocks of information.
- Information is the foundation of the Universe and the brain exists to manipulate it.
- A symbol has the potential to be contained by any meaning, however thru probability, a symbol will only appear within a finite number of meanings.
- All symbols can be mathematically explained by the
*5 Relationship Patterns*of mindspace. - The fundamental properties of a symbol are dimensions of the Universe.
- Every symbol has 12 dimensions. Therefore, the Universe has 12 dimensions (not just 4).
- Symbols obey universal laws, in the same way that matter obeys universal laws.
- Symbols partly exist between a physical and abstract region of Time and Space (re-explained as 'mindspace' in thought theory).
- Every single atom of matter, or arrangement of atoms, must be considered symbolic because all arrangements of matter are interwoven with the abstract dimensions.
- Two or more separate arrangements of matter can represent a single symbol in mindspace.
- Symbols exchange energy: which appears to be information.
- The organization and motion of symbols within a 12-dimensional mindspace, moves matter in the physical space, since symbols are interwoven with matter.
- Symbols are not spontaneously invented. Like living beings, they are birthed within a hierarchy and have parents.
- It is possible to create a map of symbols, that shows their 'probabilistic' positions within mindspace.
- The probabilistic laws of symbols run in-parallel with the probabilistic laws of quantum mechanics.
- And more...(list is probably not final)

When talking to people about my work, the question often arises, why build a theory on symbols? To many of us, symbols are vague, emotional, arguable, and lack any 'real' measurable substance.

Sounds like a great opportunity to formulate a better description...

A symbol can be anything, such as a flower, or a tree, or a family. And from there we attach meanings to these things. So a flower can mean love, a tree can mean wisdom, and a family can mean love and wisdom. It all seems pretty subjective, and lots of things can mean lots of things, to lots of different people.

We know that all living minds communicate using symbols, however, how do our networks of symbols forge the growth and change within our lives? And perhaps, is there a better methodology for systematically measuring symbols?

For example, how does one quantify the energy found in text, images, photos, logos and other objects? It seems to me that meaningful designs must contain energy - a type of energy that makes people think and move. But how is this energy defined? How does one symbol act upon another?

Could a form of complexity generated by symbols be affecting our day-to-day decision-making patterns? Perhaps the rules governing symbols might fall along the same lines as those governing physics...

What about the famously discussed Law of Attraction? Can a mind attract things? I don't think there has been any scientific explanation for how Attraction might function - is it like gravity?...

Thought theory seeks to reframe some fundamental laws of psychology to the scope of physics, and explain the forces acting upon symbolic structures within an abstract space shared across minds.

In my research, I've put together a rudimentary philosophy on the behavior of 'minds' and 'symbols' within an abstracted region. I also think that we will someday create a hyper-dimensional map of symbols, and use it to navigate a hidden world of massive ideas.

With a map of symbols, we could plot our future more closely. We could arrange mathematical processes to re-organize and decrease the structures of complexity that separate minds from one another. Reducing or re-ordering complexity in abstract space might be the solution for eliminating or drastically reducing the possibilities of war, famine, poverty, and pain. Maybe one day, we might re-engineer our economic models and all of society could be structured in concert with our mental nature.

]]>In this theory, I’ll often refer to the mind instead of the brain. The difference between the two is simple - a brain is a closed system of relationships that exist as a cluster of neurons (in the physical space); while a mind is an open system of relationships that exists between symbols (within the abstract space). A brain can die, while a mind cannot, and the function of the universe is to maintain a special mechanism of exchange between minds and brains.

Plato was an ancient Greek philosopher who lived between 429 BC and 347 BC. He was a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Akademia in Athens.

Akademia was the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Plato along with his mentor Socrates, postulated a unique world-view called the *Theory of Forms*.

According to their *Theory of Forms*, our physical world is but a shadow of even greater shapes, called Universals, that reside in a hidden world of ideal forms. These distinct, yet immaterial substances inhabiting the *World of Forms* are responsible for reflecting our physical environment, which Plato called the *World of Substance*. According to their 'world-view', our world is essentially an illusion of a hidden world [of Forms].

In the 17th century, a philosopher named René Descartes brought Plato’s arguments further with his theory on *Dualism*. He claimed that the mind and brain were different entities inhabiting different realms in the universe. Descartes stated that '*the mind is distinct from the body and its substance is the essence of thought*'.

To date, their theories haven't significantly gained traction within the physical sciences community.

Theory of Thought expands on dualism and metaphysics, and creates a framework that ties the abstract space to the physical space. Using the thought theory framework, it can be derived how hidden patterns guide the displacement of matter through a fundamental mechanism that equilibrates the organizations of mind and matter within the Universe.

Basically speaking, the arrangement of the physical world (past, present, and future), can be modelled from the interaction of hidden patterns within a mindspace that has a direct influence over the bodies of matter moving across space and time.

*Note:* In future blog posts, I will reveal how the mechanism guiding matter is based on mathematical equations resting within hidden patterns in sacred geometry.

The 5 relationship patterns create the fabric thats forms the abstract space [of minds] which controls the physical space [of matter].

Each thought, thing and the events between thoughts and things can be referenced by these patterns. Basically, these patterns are the constructs of the Universe, and we can use them to reveal everything about it.

It isn't a random coincidence that each pattern is founded on the circle and line - the simplest, and most important shapes in the Universe.

Each pattern has distinct functions for bridging mind and matter into a single paradigm:

Hierarchical Pattern = **Probability**

System Pattern = **Individuality**

Union Pattern = **Attraction**

Network Pattern = **Communication**

Gear Pattern = **Work**

The mindspace is a region designed to support living arrangements of matter. Its architecture is the origin of intelligent thinking and is how intelligent beings relate abstract experiences with one another. The basic concepts defining the physical world, such as gravity, thermodynamics, evolution, economics, evolution, and even fractals are reflective of these 5 patterns and their respective meanings.

This meaningful framework of patterns, which interweaves thought and matter, enables all minds to navigate an abstract space, while forcing their brains and bodies to follow along in physical space.

Additionally, each pattern is a Sun Pattern, and is responsible for generating the 'complexity' that grows life from matter.

]]>Thought comes from the **abstract perspective** of our 'hyper-dimensional' universe.

Let me put it this way, every object around us is made of bits of matter that have fundamental values like mass and velocity.

However, where did that object come from? Who made it? What is its value? What is its function?

The answers to these questions are held within the abstract perspective of the Universe. Knowing these answers requires knowing about the ‘invisible’ relationships that unite objects in space and time.

Any object we encounter will have some probabilistically-defined structure of information that is embedded within it.

Our ideas on its origin and value are intrinsic to all material forms because the Universe is dualistic in nature, and maintains both a physical and abstract space. These 2 spaces are joined together within a hyperspace, that I call Mindspace.

Mindspace is a complex grid constructed from the 5 types of relationship patterns. These relationship patterns are real hyper-dimensional structures, that exist within two types of spaces, simultaneously.

In one regard, these patterns are the foundation for atoms and objects, while in the other, they are the foundation for intelligent forms of information (and thought).

So when someone is thinking, their minds are moving across an entire mindspace of relationship patterns, and the motion can be described in the same way as someone moving across any physical space.

Theorefore thought is **the expression of motion** across abstract space.

Ever wonder how to define a thought? Is it a structure with boundaries?

Within thought theory, a thought is the abstract perspective of a structure that inhabits a region of space called *mindspace*.

What is mindspace? - It's a hyper-dimensional architecture that contains hyper-dimensional structures called symbols.

*A hyper-dimensional space has more than 4 dimensions, and is inhabited by structures with more than 4 dimensions.*

Think about it for a minute - how do you describe a thought? It's an idea of something in relation to something else, and every thought is a vision of some physical arrangement. Thoughts are designed by nature to be joined in relationships that join abstract and physical concepts.

Because symbols are real structures in mindspace, mathematics can be employed to calculate 'distances' between them and to derive value (ie. quantities of energy).

This energy might be responsible for forcing change upon the material world.

We tend to think that thoughts are separate from physical reality. However, the truth may be that both worlds are separate halves of a single entity, that employs a single form of mathematics to manage both worlds.

Therefore, everything (thought and matter) is arranged across 5 types of patterns working together within mindspace.

And these 5 patterns are unique perspectives on the basic nature of the symbol, and they explain how symbols form, connect, and exchange energy between themselves within mindspace.

So when you look around, don't think about the separated arrangements of matter that you see, think about the connected arrangements of patterns that represent them within a hyper-dimensional mindspace.

]]>The activity of all living things is caused by one thing: relationships. We have relationships with food, so we eat it, we have relationship with our clothes, so we wear them, we have relationships with people, so we love them and move towards them.

From a mindspace perspective, relationships cause all organizational interactions.

Let’s visualize it: people are **circles** and the means by which they communicate and share information are represented by **lines**.

By nature, any network of relationships, such as a family or business, contains an amount of complexity, and it grows increasingly complex if the growth of new pathways (lines) outpaces the growth of new organizations (circles).

When there are more lines, there is more 'complexity'.

The *benefit* of increasing complexity is that the entire organization feels like it's moving faster.

The *problem* with increasing complexity is that the organization increases in uncertainty which leads to a higher probability of collisions.

It's important to note that every arrangement of matter can be referenced as a line-to-circle ratio called *complexity* that crosses into an abstract space.

In thought theory, it is hypothesized that an organization's flux in complexity causes changes in the passage of time. In effect, the networks are exchanging **time** between themselves!

*Material arrangements that take advantage of complex networks prosper and reproduce, while other organisms go extinct because they have been out-paced by these more successful time-dilated organisms*.

Complex networks rise to glory and go extinct, as their networks grow and sustain large resources of time.

All symbols in mindspace distort time and space (not just the living minds).

Here are 3 ways of understanding the distortions in time:

]]>Ok, so how did I arrive at this conclusion? String theory predicts 10 or 11 dimensions, while thought theory explains that there must be 12 dimensions. So what's going on?

First of all, let me explain what a dimension is: a dimension is a fundamental property of matter. Each bit of matter in the universe has a *length*, *width*, *depth*, and [footprint in] *time*. These 4 dimensions, commonly known as SpaceTime, are the most basic physical *properties* of matter. Instead of calling them properties, we call them 'dimensions' - it makes them sound more important.

It turns out that matter also has other important properties. For example, all bits of matter vibrate in SpaceTime. Therefore, every single bit of matter in the physical universe has a height, width, length, time, AND it vibrates. However, physicists do not refer to their vibrating properties as dimensions.

To reveal a 12-dimensional space, that I call mindspace, I have to dimensionalize the 4 properties of vibrating matter: *period*, *amplitude*, *wavelength*, and *frequency*.

These 4 distinct properties of vibration, are crucial in calculating probabilistic events in both classical and quantum mechanics (especially regarding the wave-particle duality).

Together, the physical and wave properties of matter account for 8 mindspace dimensions.

Now, to explain the last 4 properties of matter.

In quantum theory, everything is describable by a wavefunction.

However, a wavefunction does not actually exist.

It is a completely abstract device to explain matter in a quantum mechanical way. There isn't a way to verify its existence - it just works. It is only an equation, assembled using an assortment of *letters, numbers, shapes, and meanings* that precisely equals the expected behaviour of quanta (bits of matter).

Because the wavefunction contains letters, numbers, shapes, and meanings, the properties of matter must also include *letters, numbers, shapes and meanings*! Right?!

*I'll also explain it differently*: every object around us is an arrangement of matter. Each arrangement can only be understood as a series of words, numbers, and other meaningful patterns.

We can count how many chairs are in a room. We can associate a chair with a price. We can write the word chair with 5 letters, and we can describe a chair as something that is sat on. These are the **intelligence dimensions** of matter at work.

I believe that our brains did not create the concepts of letters, numbers, shapes, and meanings - these are unavoidable dimensions of the universe.

Everything in the Universe is always framed by the *12 dimensions of mindspace*.

...and once matter is described in 12 dimensions, we're no longer referring to matter, but instead we're referring to *symbols*.

Inside every environment are arrangements of matter that reflect its values. Within a restaurant for example, the material arrangements will be in forms of decorations, menus, food, etc. The arrangements are placed there by the minds occupying and supporting the establishment.

Thinking people, working within organizations, manifest symbolic arrangements; and if the minds of the working people disappear from the organization, the arrangements will in time fade away and disappear from the space.

The intelligent arrangements of matter that we see around us, are assembled and driven into motion by an invisible network of *patterns*. These patterns are the relationships that hold everything together, and all minds exert control over them.

Theory of Thought explains that the patterns are interwoven with the laws of physics.

By manipulating patterns, our minds exert enormous control over SpaceTime.

*What this means*: If a group of minds is well organized, their environment will succeed and its symbols will reproduce and spread. However, if its minds are badly organized, the environment will appear to fail and its symbolic arrangements of matter will disappear.

To dramatically change the symbolic arrangements of the restaurant, for example, a special donor could come in and replace all of its equipment, furniture, branding, etc... However over time, if the groups of minds that operate the restaurant have not reconfigured their abstract mental patterns in mindspace, the restaurant's material environment will be forced to regress back until it equilibrates itself with the mental patterns supporting it.

'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.'

Receivers of charity (and lottery) often fail, simply because the structure of their mental patterns are incapable of supporting some overbearing value, and inevitably, their decision-making patterns are forced by a hidden hyper-dimensional equilibrium process.

In the future, instead of manipulating matter within an environment directly (such as material donation), which lead to mind-matter imbalances (leading to corruption), we will discover how to manipulate minds and manipulate arrangements of matter indirectly, by taking advantage of the mind-matter balancing mechanism.

Successful people often access this level of abstraction, however the mathematics and rules behind it have never been scientifically described.

Figuring out ways to map and then re-organize these patterns in mindspace will safely enable scientists to exert control over all parts of the material world… helping to solve civilization's greatest challenges.

]]>The modern world that we live in today was, in many ways, founded on the visions of the Ancient Greek philosophers.

Pythagorus, Socrates, and Plato, among other ancient greeks, provided the intellectual foundation for modern society by getting at the root of what drives the minds of people.

For example, as a result of their work, we have a fundamental notion on logic, called the Socratic Method, that is still used in courtrooms thousands of years later.

We were given a foundation for modern medical science called the Hippocratic Oath.

Plato's *Republic* provided the foundation of modern republican government.

During the European renaissance a movement towards Enlightenment took shape.

Centered within the United States of America, Ancient Greek ideas seeded the most iconic designs of government ever created.

During the same period of time, European chemists would scientifically confirm another Ancient Greek idea - the atom.

It took over 2000 years to confirm the existence of atoms. It also took 2000 years to re-create a pure concept of government originated by Ancient Greek philosophers.

The Ancient Greeks seeded civilization with ideas that have since grown into massive symbols of the modern world.

However there remains another Ancient Greek concept, that remains unconfirmed and mostly forgotten.

And Plato was absolutely convinced of it.

Socrates and Plato named it the *Theory of Forms*.

The theory advocates for the existence, and indeed, supremacy of non-physical reality.

They hypothesized that the objects we perceive as physical [World of Substance] are just shadows of the invisible World of Forms.

Their Theory of Forms lead to the development of 'dualism', stating that the brain and mind were different entities inhabiting different realms in the universe.

However, there has never been a clear medium to elaborate the mechanism of energy exchange between non-physical and physical; between thought and matter, and between forms and substance.

I believe that it can be accomplished by synthesizing the laws of physics and the laws of thought, into a single set of laws. It will reveal the universal laws of metaphysics that govern symbols within a hyper-dimensional space.

It will finally answer the question; what does matter itself symbolize?

For example, we know that protons, neutrons, electrons, and photons work together to create matter in our universe, but why these exact components? And why do they work together? What is their guiding philosophy?

Physics has a great collection of practical solutions (Thermodynamics, QED, General Relativity, etc.), but they need to be unified under the common umbrella provided by the 5 relationship patterns.

And since the relationship patterns also explain the structure of thought, the patterns can unite thought and matter into a single set of meta-physics that transcends everything.

]]>Consider that the Sun contains 99.8% of all the energy in the solar system.

Basically, this means that the Sun is the only source of energy we have.

Its energy is the source of all our energy.

The Sun was worshipped by ALL ancient religions and thus it is surely the most important symbol in the Universe.

So as I explain the connections between the relationship patterns and the Sun, keep in mind that they transcend the same basic values.

Like the Sun, patterns contain energy. This energy affects both, bodies of matter and the minds of people.

People acquire motivation and perform activities in response to the infusion of their abstract energy.

So everyday, living beings feed off two forms of energy, one of the Sun, and the other of its symbolism, and both forms are derived from one source: the relationship patterns.

The 5 'Sun' patterns are the basic descriptors of all forms of energy.

Each type of patterns is created from a basic building block:

And amazingly, each building block can be simplified into a symbolic diagram of the Sun:

The reasoning for the association between the symbols of the Sun and these 5 patterns is simple - the patterns symbolize how *energy* is organized within the mind, and the Sun symbolizes how *energy* is organized in the physical world.

Through this fundamental association, our un-consciousness minds have decided long ago that the Sun is best illustrated using the 5 relationship patterns.

]]>When is the last time you re-thought the simple stuff?

Let's examine the difference between 2x2 and 2+2, but from a different perspective!

Both equations equal 4, however there is a real difference between the two results. The fundamental difference springs from the operator used (addition '+' vs. multiplication 'x').

Here is the logic behind **multiplication**:

In multiplication, objects are copied a number of times. Multiplication increases the size of a symbol, without increasing its complexity.

On the other hand, here is the logic behind **addition**:

During addition, two different objects are combined into a single symbol. Each group of objects remains a distinct entity within the symbol, and thus increases its overall complexity.

Multiplication scales up a single group, while addition merges two different groups together and creates additional layers of 'depth'. Although both operations result in the same numerical result, the operations yield very different underlying shapes and meanings.

Ok, so what does this difference truly mean?...

It means that we're missing a fraction of the structures within the hyper-dimensional universe.

When we use conventional math, we are only returning the physical side of the results; we are ignoring the additional values that exists in abstract space.

From an abstract perspective, 2+2 = 6 (circles). The 2 hidden circles store additional values within mindspace that are accessed by the mind when making logical decisions.

This hidden source of value is used to motivate beings into action.

Mindspace contains huge numbers of these hidden pockets, and symbols gain a lot of power from them.

]]>In thought theory, SpaceTime is defined very simply: the **line** represents Space and the **circle** represents Time:

The **network pattern** demonstrates how the two concepts differ in shape, meaning, and function. For example, time is circular and is used for storage, while space is linear and is used for exchange.

In contrast, the **union pattern** reveals an intersection between them.

The benefits of using patterns to describe spacetime are in developing a clearer picture of a hyper-dimensional structure.

Think of a symbol as a object that exists within an intersection of space and time, and which can be visualized in 5 different ways.

If patterned symbols are actual objects (called Universals in Plato's theory of forms), then the Universe is quite simply an architecture of self-similar circles and lines spread across some depth (ie. fractal cosmology). And in thought theory, the Universe can even be described without using the words 'time' and 'space'.

Within the Universe, circles establish pathways to exchange energy, fueling their growth and expansion. The pathways are forged by the electromagnetic field.

Patterns could help explain why the Universe is in-homogenous and may even explain the existence of dark energy and dark matter.

Symbols are fundamentally connected to the arrangement of matter, and every atom of matter represents one or more patterns in mindspace:

Think of an atom, or any large arrangement of atoms, as the tip of an iceberg.

Above the fold we see matter, however hiding below are massive patterns.

If our traditional 4-dimensional view of spacetime overlooks the tip of an iceberg, then a mindspace perspective sees the entire iceberg including spacetime and the region below it that explains abstraction.

Mindspace = SpaceTime Dimensions + Abstract Dimensions

]]>In Thought Theory, the Three Principles are the basic philosophies of mindspace and the Universe.

These are the names of the principles:

- Symmetry
- Attraction
- Negation

In the hyperdimensional structure they represent the three groups of dimensions:

- Physical dimensions
- Intelligence dimensions
- Wave dimensions

In the architecture of the circle they represent its three subsections:

- Inside
- Perimeter (Border)
- Outside

In physics they represent the three families of particles:

- Hadrons
- Bosons
- Leptons

As functions of spacetime:

- Time
- 4 Forces of nature
- Space

They represent the 2 perspectives of the circle and the mechanism that changes the perspective:

- Circle [ the top view]
- Rotation
- Line [the side view]

In the economic model they represent its three phases:

- Growth
- Balance
- Change

They are valued by these integers and irrational constants:

- 1: Phi
- 3: Pi
- 2: e

As functions of Attraction they are:

- Size [a state]
- Order [a process]
- Complexity [a state]

They are found in the 3 Principles of HP’s Next-Generation Computer called ‘The Machine’:

- Ions store
- Photos communicate
- Electrons compute

They are also known as the 3 tools of Freemasonry:

- Compass
- Bible
- Square

Btw, I call this illustrative process ‘conceptual layering’.

]]>What is an abstract form of energy, and how does a mind manipulate it? These are very important questions that my theory seeks to address.

To begin, consider that a mind exists within a mindspace. This hidden space exists all around and within us, and every arrangement of matter is a part of one or more shared mindspaces.

The main difference between spacetime and mindspace is that spacetime contains 'empty space', while mindspace does not.

Mindspace is a hyperdimensional space that overlaps itself. Its structures are represented as circles and lines and there are no spaces between separated shapes - we only perceive empty space as a function of 'symmetry' (ie. first law of mindspace, to be explained later).

In spacetime, energy is calculated by the weight and velocity of an object. If an object has mass, it contains energy. If that object is moving fast, it contains even more energy.

The concept of energy was created to explain how one physical body forces change onto another body as it moves across spacetime.

Thought theory explains that the circle and line structures in mindspace follow these same observations, however in an abstract sense.

For example, 'a rock' and 'a bottle of Coke', of the same weight, moving at the same speed, contain roughly the same amount of energy.

However, from the perspective of a mindspace, a bottle of Coke will usually contain more energy than a simple rock of similar weight and velocity.

The additional energy exists because a bottle of coke contains specific arrangements of relationships (designs, words, numbers) that create overlapping mindspaces.

This infuses a bottle of coke with 'abstract' energy, which causes the displacement of people around it. This energy is stored within the arrangement of its matter (ie. structures of information like its logo).

Traditionally, physical energy is calculated by adding together all the sizes and speeds of its atoms - it **does not** take into account the 'arrangement' of these atoms such as logos, words, pictures, etc.

In thought theory, the abstract energy must be somehow included when calculating energy.

- Physical energy ≈ sum of atoms
- Abstract energy ≈ sum of non-random arrangements between atoms
- Total energy that exists in mindspace =
**physical**+**abstract**

In conclusion, the abstract properties of matter generate pulling and pushing effects that are exerted on the minds of neighboring people (and other living things), and thus qualifies as a form of energy.

]]>Expansion is generally considered in the following way:

This growing circle might contain money or people for example, and as it gets bigger it implies that the amount of money or people is ‘expanding’.

However, now I’m confused, did I just explain expansion, or was that growth? Is there a difference between expansion and growth?

Well yes there is!

It is a scientific fact that the Universe has been ‘expanding’ for the last 14 billion years. But does that mean it has been growing?

Does it have more energy than it used to? No, it does not. The universe has not grown in energy, therefore it has only ‘expanded’.

Since it makes perfect sense that GROWTH in energy should be illustrated by **different sizes of circles**, how should EXPANSION be illustrated?

To describe expansion I use the circles within circles pattern.

I have done this in reference to thought theory’s ‘system pattern’.

Therefore, expansion is not a function of the outer perimeter, but a function of the number of inner-layers.

The expansion of any space is an expansion of depth and scale.

Here’s what expansion in depth looks like with respect to the hierarchical pattern:

What the hierarchical pattern shows, that you cannot see easily from the systems pattern, is the ‘depth’ in which the additional systems exist. Expansion is the creation of new levels within the hierarchy, which equates to ‘depth’.

Watch this 30-sec video for even more clarity:

]]>

In the present-day, about 14 billion years since the Big Bang, the energy composition of the Universe is approximately the following:

A small amount of **atoms and light**

A medium amount of **dark matter**

A large amount of **dark energy**

However, after right after its initial inflationary period, the makeup of the Universe was roughly:

A medium amount of **atoms and light**

A large amount of **dark matter**

No **dark energy**

Also note that there also seems to be a generally constant 6:1 proportion of dark matter to atoms (matter with mass).

I’m going to provide a model that explains these general observations. The model is created by referencing the relationship patterns described in Theory of Thought.

Prior to the Big Bang, there was a perfectly ordered singularity of space and time that contained all the energy we have in our present-day Universe.

Since the singularity, the amount of energy within the Universe has remained constant.

And we know the Universe has been expanding ever since the Big Bang, and we also know that the rate of expansion is increasing (ie. exponential rate).

Instead of ‘inflating’ the circle, I’m going to illustrate expansion by adding circles within circles, that create layers, which in turn creates ‘depth’.

So where are these circles coming from? Time… Time creates these circles in response to ‘events in time’. So in effect, adding circles signifies increasing entropy, and the forward flow of time.

So how does this apply to dark Matter and dark Energy?

In my very rudimentary model, the total amount of dark energy is proportional to the total amount of layers, while the amount of dark matter is proportional to the total number of ‘kissing’ circles.

By the way, the kissing number is 6:

The kissing number might be the maximum possible ratio between observed quantities of dark matter to matter, if it could be shown that these mysterious phenomenons have everything to do with circle packing.

And since each circle represents regular matter, dark matter is a function of the interconnectedness of matter, which gains in strength when there is lots of it grouped together... Hence why dark matter is important when considering galactic bodies rather than when considering small objects like atoms.

Now lets take a look at these ideas using the hierarchical pattern.

Watch this video to see the difference between the system and hierarchical pattern:

Within a hierarchical pattern, the flow of time adds new circles to the hierarchy.

And this is how dark energy and matter would be interpreted in the hierarchical pattern:

And since the present is the bottom most layer of circles, the upper layers have essentially gone ‘dark’ - yet they are still important when understanding the configuration of total energy.

Over time, the total area of the most inner-layer of circles, compared to the area of the ‘dark’ circles, shrinks, signifying a drop in the total matter to dark energy ratio.

The hierarchical expansion is also growing exponentially, which might explain how the Universe's speed of expansion is increasing.

Over time, the expansion of the universe creates lots of circles within circles - which unlike this diagram, are probably not so homogenous. So 13-14 billion years later, the universe finds itself somewhere within this circles within circles illustration, and we end up with the matter/energy makeup that is currently observed.

And there you have it! A simple, hypothetical model explaining the conceptual origin of matter, dark matter, and dark energy.

Note: I’m using a VERY SIMPLISTIC model. It is not drawn exactly, and is only meant to conceptualize 3 types of energy. Perhaps an illustration showing their exact progression over time might be done using my approach, but it would require a much more precise measurement of areas, numbers of circles, packing configuration of circles, and so forth.

Now learn how the hierarchical pattern, entropy and Pascal’s Triangle fit together!

]]>It is known that in Ancient Greece, a famous metaphysicist named Pythagoras worshipped a particular shape called the Tetractys. He and his followers believed it to symbolize everything that is perfect about the Universe.

The Tetractys is an equilateral triangle (30°-30°-30°) with 10 interconnected points across exactly four layers. The Pythagoreans believed that this basic shape of nature reveals doorways to the most profound mathematical principles of the Universe.

One of these doorways leads to Pascal’s Triangle.

Pascal’s triangle is also an ancient concept that Pascal called the ‘Arithmetic Triangle’ when he scientifically re-introduced it in the 17th century. Pascal's triangle is **a triangular array of the binomial coefficients**, and its form can be considered the base of **probability theory** while exhibiting an exquisite relationship with the **Fibonacci numbers** and Phi.

I’ve found that Pascal’s triangle is a special tool used to calculate a very basic concept… a hierarchical pattern…

The ‘binomial’ coefficients within the **Arithmetic Triangle** represent the branches per row in the hierarchy.

Pascals triangle compresses 2^{n} circles into just n circles.

The Arithmetic Triangle is nature’s compression algorithm...

When mathematicians employ the binomial expansion (ie. Pascal’s triangle), they are calculating individual branches within a hierarchical pattern (ie. binary tree).

And the Pythagoreans understood this.

Their Tetractys could be thought of as the first few layers, like a capstone, of each hierarchical pattern.

It's also where the symbol for the eye of God originates:

So what else does the Tetractys symbolize? Lots of concepts:

But this one is the most exciting:

The hierarchical pattern that unfolds from the Tetractys reveals the entire configuration of mindspace!

The top two rows represent the circle: the border (A), inside (S), and outside (N). And the bottom two rows are all the dimensions necessary to meaningfully describe it as both a stationary and rotating container.

It also appears that the duality of **rest** vs. **motion** are responsible for assembling the hierarchical pattern in the first place - and reveal the concepts of probability and expansion during the process of creating 'depth'.

So the Tetractys DEEPLY represents the circle, the monad, and the primordial symbol for God - while also being the dimensional framework for mindspace.

And if you think I’m just making up these connections - consider that the $1 US bill is strikingly designed with this exact symbolism in mind! ...I believe that the founding of the United States upon these symbols, is the source of its global superpower status.

]]>The structure of the Universe has to come from somewhere.

Modern physicists have discovered a majority of the basic functions of the Universe, but they haven't provided any great theories on how its framework came to be.

Thought Theory explains that everything originates from the circle, and its three basic divisions (the inside, outside, and border/perimeter). These divisions lead to relativity, quantum mechanics, and even thought, and this is made possible by 'conceptual overlaying' (ie. mirror-symmetry). In Thought Theory, it's a fundamental law that allows an object to symbolize more than one concept simultaneously. Through conceptual overlaying and symmetry, all of the things we come to discover and realize, fall within the three basic divisions of the circle.

The above pattern is of the utmost importance - it can be understood as the Three Principles of Mindspace and can be found at the top of the Tetractys.

The Tetractys symbolizes how any symbol is fundamentally divided across a mindspace.

It illustrates how the physical and abstract dimensions emerge from the initial branches of a very basic binary tree.

The hierarchical branches are created from the basic nature of duality itself:

Does this mean that the universe is binary in nature? Should we stop thinking in terms of base 5, 10, 12, 16, etc.?

I would suspect that all mindspace patterns are highly dependent on binary hierarchies, although I believe there are vast numbers of increasingly complex hierarchies within mindspace (called polynomials), which makes other bases quite useful for calculation.

By the way it appears that our minds can instinctively connect these dots. Take a look at the obvious connections found on the most circulated symbol in the history of the world:

]]>In this article I will introduce a series of approximations that are very real, but are only true within a truncated region of space.

Mathematicians have labored for over 6 millenia in order to rid mathematics of 'approximations'.

They want to know as many decimals as possible, in order to be increasingly 'precise' - within our seemingly infinite space.

Approximations are only considered good enough until a new invention comes along that somehow increases the precision of spatial measurement.

Sometimes new tools can turn a measurement from 'approximate' to 'exact'. That's considered an achievement in mathematics.

However, there are many calculations that mathematicians can say for certain will never be 'exact'. These calculations always contain an 'irrational' number.

When calculating with irrational numbers mathematicians use a single strategy - 'More decimals = more precision'. They want to calculate the most precise answers possible using the most precise irrational numbers possible. For example, they have unearthed thousands of digits of PI:

3.14159265358979323846264 3383279502884197169399375 10582097494459230781640628 620899862803482534211706 7982148086513282306647093 84460 9550582231725359408 12848111...

It's very important to consider that it only takes 39 decimals places of PI to calculate the circumference of the entire Universe within the width of a single hydrogen atom! ... This means that calculating thousands and millions of digits of PI is not really useful other than for providing an exercise on 'randomness' and 'infinity'.

So what is the exact value of an irrational number? Nobody can say for sure - therefore mathematicians have a single mindset:

'More decimals = more precision'.

However, their assumptions lay on one particular principle: that they can produce unlimited decimals.

What if only 4 decimals could be produced? What if decimals require 'space', and there are some spaces that just aren't big enough?

If any space can be illustrated within a hierarchical pattern, then each layer represents an additional decimal of precision.

Each layer represents 10x more precision in calculating the 'depth' of that space.

This is essential how a ruler works.

But if the space being measured is just 4 layers deep, its numbers could only be measured up to 4 digits (ie. decimals).

That's where these approximations become very precise.

All of the equations above are true if the number of digits used in calculations is less than or equal to 4.

The equations include all of the most important irrational constants found in nature.

Notice that there are no 6’s 7’s 8’s or 9’s within any of the equations. It's because these numbers are not really as important as the first six (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

In fact, only the integers 1,2,3 and 5 are referenced, which are all Fibonacci numbers!

Why truncate each constant to 4 decimals? I believe it's because of the Tetractys...

The Tetractys represents the first four layers of any mindspace. It's a truncated region, resulting in truncated numbers.

It can be compared to a natural capstone over every hierarchical pattern (ie. space) in nature!

I will show that the approximations represent geometric patterns that exist within a very shallow depth below 1000x precision.

So consider that our biological senses function in the range of 100x - 1000x precision. For example, we cannot see a difference between a shape that is drawn in 1,000x or 10,000x (...this is why RETINA displays are about 350ppi, and not 3500ppi).

So this coincidence with our senses may indicate that the spaces we create in our minds are founded across a 4-layer hierarchical pattern, that can be calculated with a series of 'approximations'. The approximations are in-focus (and exact) if you truncate all the values before the first 4 decimals, and become out of focus if you do not.

I believe that the brain translates these hierarchical patterns into 'symbols' and go on to produce thought as a bi-product of their interactions within the mind.

In a future article, I will show how each natural and irrational number represents a hierarchical pattern and the equations joining the numbers can be used to calculate shared patterns. I will also expand on the 'truncated geometries' that exist within these truncated, symbolic spaces.

]]>Believe it or not, but it took me 4 years to discover that pi^{2} ≈ phi^{2} + e^{2}. In this article I'm going to explain what this connection means.

Since the beginning of my adventure with Theory of Thought, I’ve always held that **Pi**, **Phi**, and **e** were fundamental concepts in my theory - particularly in a philosophical sense. But until I discovered this geometry I had had no idea how deeply interwoven these constants truly were.

There are few reasons you won't find any references to this geometry online, including:

1) most people haven’t tried the calculation,

2) the values in the equation require considerable truncation (considered somewhat erroneous by mathematicians)

3) and even if it was discovered, its significance would be too puzzling

Since I already had a theory about these three irrational constants, it was awesome to discover that my theory also had a geometrical perspective that might explain the hidden framework holding a mind together.

Thought Theory explains that each of our thoughts are reflective of an organized 'mindspace'. The mindspace is geometrical, because it's a mathematical architecture that maintains 'patterns' (that we come to visualize as symbols).

Pi, Phi, and e are found in a majority of equations used in classical and quantum mechanics; and I believe they are also vital in calculating the areas of the hyper-dimensional spaces within the mind.

They are the most important numbers in the universe, and Thought Theory merges these numbers, their meanings, and their mathematical concepts into a single model that describes the basic processes of any symbolic space.

And it reveals something extra-ordinary.

Consider that the equation binding the three constants is none other than the Pythagorean theorem, the most respected equation in nature.

This equation is unique because it's used to calculate distances between any two points on a spatial plane.

And within our brains and our minds, our thoughts must also be organized across distances and spaces.

But in contrast to most linear measurements, I think the distances within a mind are calculated in rotations (across its abstract patterns).

Here's a 30-sec video about the Pythagorean theorem and rotation:

But why would the connections between pi, phi, and e be significant?

Because conceptually:

PI = Circular Perimeter

PHI = Expansion

e = Growth

Combined together, these three constants appear to create a symbolic space within a rotation. Their function is to architect a hyper-dimensional area that can be populated with relationship patterns (hierarchical, union, network, system, and gear). The patterns are assembled into 'spaces' and the interaction between these spaces leads to intelligent thought and symbolism.

The hyper-dimensional space, called mindspace, is based on the Pythagorean Dyad:

...and the entire mindspace is spread across a grid of dyads.

'In quantum field theory, the fabric of space is visualized as consisting of fields, with the field at every point in space and time being a quantum harmonic oscillator, with neighboring oscillators interacting.' - Wikipedia

... so each 'field' in mindspace is an oscillator governed by a Tetractys inside its Vesica Piscis:

The Tetractys represents the root of a hierarchical pattern within mindspace. (ie. a symbol)

Each symbol is under the control of the fundamental triangle, which can be divided into two sections:

And each triangle can be visualized as a bridge connecting the concepts of Time and Space:

PI, PHI, and e are root concepts that manage the exchange of information (ie. patterns) between pockets of time in a mindspace.

And should be thought of as an ideal mechanism that generates natural forces which affect both symbols in a mindspace and arrangements of matter in a physical space, simultaneously.

To really understand how this entire structure operates (and is interwoven with quantum mechanics) would take an entire book! ...which is conveniently for sale here :)

More blog posts on these topic coming soon.

]]>In this article, I will introduce how an abstract form of mass, called complexity, generates Time Dilation between symbols. Conventionally, mass is a property of particles and atoms, however I propose there exists a different form of mass that is a property of symbols, and it's made of the intelligent relationships joining arrangements of matter (eg. logos, designs, etc.). The abstract mass will then be compared to regular mass with respect to the flow of time and space.

In physical space, motion takes place when an arrangement of matter changes positions over a period of time (d/t). There are lots of things to be said about motion, and Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity specifically explains how motion (and acceleration) through space produces a universal phenomenon called **time dilation**.

It states that any massive object which accelerates to very high velocities, near the speed of light, will slow its time dramatically. From an outside perspective, the object will undergo a bizarre form of time travel, because:

1) the object will continue to exist alongside the observer (unlike jumping into a new future)

2) the object’s existence will age at a slower rate.

For example, if a spaceship travelled near the speed of light it could reach the next star system in 2.1 years. However, the crew would have only experienced a 6-month journey.

This can really happen in our universe! And this equation, based on the pythagorean theorem, explains it:

Unfortunately, this physical form of time dilation plays a minuscule role in our daily lives, because as human beings, our bodies of mass move too slowly across space to generate enough time dilation; so scientists don’t bother measuring the difference in elapsed time between earthbound citizens.

However, can its principles be translated into a philosophy of mind?

Do people somehow harness time dilation? Is education a method for cultivating an abstract form of it? Consider that the impulses of light in our brains travel near the speed of light, can these light speed interactions be somehow bound to symbolic masses that travel between positions in the mind?

What if time dilation does in fact pervade human society — however in some abstract form that is caused by an entirely different type of mass? What if we actively manipulated time as we assemble structures in our minds?

Perhaps within an abstract space are abstract masses (ie. symbols) that travel along abstract pathways (ie. relationship patterns), which span across all minds.

**Communication = Motion**

Consider two people sitting still motionless, but speaking and coordinating information between themselves. In a physical sense, there is not much motion being generated (other than the motion of particles between their mouths and ears, and the waving of their hands). However, if visualized in an abstract sense, a motion (ie. transfer) of information might be seen, and if information can be thought of as a structure in some abstract space, it might be considered a type of moving object (symbol). These structures of information might move across mindspace according to some abstract laws of motion.

I’m hypothesizing that there is an abstract space containing structures of information, that might be ruled by the same principles of physics regarding time, space, and vectors of motion. The structures of information, modelled within a hyper-dimensional mindspace, should be regarded as hyperspace objects that can also generate time dilation.

So in essence, there are two forms of time dilation — one is physical and one is abstract, however both are explained using the same basic pattern:

So what are the basic consequences of physical and abstract forms of time dilation?

Well consider that all time dilated organizations always appear to age slower.

If a system is aging slower, it means that it will probably outlive the observer. A time dilated human could potentially outlive generations of people. So if there exists time dilated structures of information, they would also outlive other structures (symbols) of information.

I am hypothesizing that the most important artifacts, books, documents, concepts, etc. are all structures of information that have harnessed time-dilation in order to outlive their contemporaries. All ancient things that have survived this far into the future, are extensive networks of abstract relationships with a greater lifespan vis-a-vis everything else of symbolic value.

Highly networked organizations travel further across space within a single period of time because they move more information across their networks within the same amount of time as those of less networked observers. This leads to a greater possible change in environment for networked masses, and enables them to out-compete outsiders.

Consider that education, support groups, and funding might provide us ways to manipulate abstract time dilation by finding, creating, and growing networks in mindspace.

By measuring the abstract time dilation produced within a network, we might unmask the forces that cause evolution, competition, survival of the fittest, and ultimately, decision-making.

And given the rise of the Internet, time dilation could be having a dramatic impact on our world, while we're completely blind to it.
