scaleless systems–the path out of our current thinking box

This was the post that was supposed to be the answer to life and everything, the culmination of all this thinking. The post that is the practical limit to what a human being can conclude about this existence and God.


I actually ended up doing a lot of thinking about what I suspect is more important–more important, because it’s a pathway that really is a goldmine that needs to be explored before I can tackle such end-of-the-road subjects as God. The more I think about scaleless systems, the more I realize how important analysis and further development in this area is–in fact, we can’t conclude there is a practical end-of-the-road discussion/thinking yet, because this is clearly a major pathway out of our current knowledge box. Not to say I haven’t done a lot of thinking about who/what God might be, and what I’m pretty sure God isn’t.

If you’ve read any of the previous verbiage, you know I have concluded that a scaleless system almost certainly is a good representation of our existence and most significantly is a system with more degrees of freedom than the Standard Model of physics subscribes to. If you were to bring it down to its simplest representation, it is the realization that a: we have no absolute size in any physical or temporal dimension, nor is there any absolute definition of what a quantity of a substance is that composes a scaleless system–and b: the scales involved are infinite in range, either infinitely small or infinitely large. You could create a system that would fit on the point of a pin or spans a googleplex of our current universes, you could create a system that expands in a big bang and collapses back into a giant black hole in the span of a femtosecond or the lifetime of a googleplex of universe lifetimes, and any one of those systems would be a valid representation of our existence. But scaleless systems go a very important step further–not only is there no absolute length of time or space (one of the principle tenets of the general theory of relativity), but that if there is “absolutely” nothing in space, the infiniteness of that tenet is such that it is possible over some infinitely large or small range of empty space, and over some infinitely large or small range of time, that emptiness cannot exist, at some range there will be a formation of structure. It is provable that something cannot emerge from an empty finite space in a finite amount of time, but it is *not* provable that something cannot emerge from an infinitely large or infinitely small space over an infinitely large or infinitely small amount of time, using an infinite possible range of substance types.

There is the heart of the amazing revelation of scaleless systems. Combine the basic premise that guides general relativity (no absolute time or space in our existence) with the realization that infinities permit the emergence of structures in empty space over some infinite range of time, and a whole new venue is available to explore. I’ve discussed previously that in addition, there is an infinite range of substances that can form our existence, such as a field of electrostatic fields or playdoh or the neural networks inside some being’s mind, it doesn’t matter. There’s no absolute substance, any substance that obeys interactions we see in physics would equivalantly form our existence.

I think you can see how amazing this revelation is, there is a journey that must be taken here, discoveries and analysis to be done. What can we conclude about infinitely scaleless systems? Let’s think a bit on that and see if some theorems and other conclusions can help describe such a system.
