Garrett Lisi, surfer, but also currently know for his dynamic and potential physics/science changing, "Theory of Everything" discovered this phenomenon or model between riding sets of waves and worrying about how he and his girl friend would pay the bills. Let's read more about who Garrett is and how he lives his life:
"Garrett Lisi, 39, has a doctorate but no university affiliation and spends most of the year surfing in Hawaii, where he has also been a hiking guide and bridge builder (when he slept in a jungle yurt).
In winter, he heads to the mountains near Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where he snowboards. "Being poor sucks," Lisi says. "It's hard to figure out the secrets of the universe when you're trying to figure out where you and your girlfriend are going to sleep next month."
That is amazing. So "simple" (I quote that word, for obviously it is not, for one reason or another) that the PhD's do not even need to make some new form of calculating or apply String Theory to even start to understand it. And here comes the stunning, breath-taking possibility that Garrett makes, as we can read here, getting also more details on what this theory is exactly:
"Lisi's inspiration lies in the most elegant and intricate shape known to mathematics, called E8 - a complex, eight-dimensional mathematical pattern with 248 points first found in 1887, but only fully understood by mathematicians this year after workings, that, if written out in tiny print, would cover an area the size of Manhattan.
Naturally, one will want to Google up a plate load on this topic, for not only is it an amazing story, but the shape itself seems, well, divine. Here is a great YouTube movie from NewScientist which did a great job of showing us what this shape is and what this theory may mean:
Garrett seems like a down-to-earth person and we wish him all the best. I can't but wonder if studying the way waves in the ocean form and come onto shore in patterns of sets helped influence his mind (The gift of his mind). Or perhaps it was his larger interest in nature, observation and experience? Here is a little group he founded called Project Sifter. Yes, it was a bit of a shock to see such a closed-minded comment as this about joining their group:
"We do not believe anything on faith. If you believe in god, mystical energies, prayer, over-unity perpetual motion machines, or life after death... it will be better for everyone if you just back away slowly, forgetting you ever read this page. Really. We prefer observation as our source, intuition and insight as our guides, hard work and creativity as our tools, and experience as our jury."
We should not judge, however I have to wonder, when their stated goal is, "the desire to know the truth above all other considerations," if they are not taking the high-road with such statements as the above, thereby excluding people. In this case a high-road based on science, numbers and nature- experience and observation; as compared to also looking at history (Wave forms [Elliott Wave patterns] of humanity), the Bible, The Mayan Calendar and it's prophecies. As Hebrews 11:1 (There are those "ones" again!) says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Webster's Bible Translation)
In this light, Garrett is exactly like many of us- seeking truth and hoping for the best; however it appears a pity that this is only within his circle of understanding. (Does he think that one comes to follow Jesus and worship God by not questioning and researching? Only the strong have faith on face-value, The meek, whom Jesus says shall inherit the earth.) The coming Transformation described and defined by the Mayan calendar and this rising 2012 awareness, shall also do a lot to bring us all, and many of the truths, together again.
Heck, I love a lot of what the Sifter Project described, but I guess they would not want me hanging around! Anyway, I could be wrong, just an observation.
Garrett recently received a grant from the FQXi, which is funded by the Templeton Foundation, to further his research. This is interesting, for some say the Templeton Foundation's goal is too prove intelligent design and defend God, while others say it is perhaps trying to do this, but with an aim of limiting it. Just makes this little debate all the more interesting.
These little ripples in time and space aside (After all, we are "observing"!), in the next post we will take a leap of faith of sorts and show you some amazing correlations between this lovely E8 shape and Jesus. After all, if it truly is the "theory of everything" than God (or the Creator or for others the mere act of observing and experiencing, for even more.) had a hand in this. But how? Could it all be just a chance thing; this wonderful form of life- this mystical shape?
Well, I can not even dare answer that myself, however will show some amazing overlays in the next post which may open some discussion. It will be different than what the most of you think...
One last video. A 21 minute talk by Garrett himself, which explains a lot more into his view on nature:
Garrett's work is amazing, however, just like a gardener knows it is not he whom actually makes the plants grow, so is it with quarks, electrons, matter and the likes. Till the next post... -Peace
From the Big-Bang it is a rationally commonsensical conjecture that the gravitons, the smallest base primal particles of the universe, must be both mass and energy, i.e. inert mass yet in motion even at the briefest fraction of a second of the pre Big Bang singularity. This is rationally commonsensical since otherwise the Big would not have Banged, the superposition of mass and energy would not have been resolved. The universe originates, derives and evolves from this energy-mass dualism which is possible and probable due to the small size of the gravitons. Since gravitation Is the propensity of energy reconversion to mass and energy is mass in motion, gravity is the force exerted between mass formats. All the matter of the universe is a progeny of the gravitons evolutions, of the natural selection of mass, of some of the mass formats attaining temporary augmented energy constraint in their successive generations, with energy drained from other mass formats, to temporarily postpone, survive, the reversion of their own constitutional mass to the pool of cosmic energy fueling the galactic clusters expansion set in motion by the Big Bang.
B. Earth Life
Earth Life is just another mass format. A self-replicating mass format. Self-replication is its mode of evolution, natural selection. Its smallest base primal units are the RNAs genes. The genesis of RNAs genes, life’s primal organisms, is rationally commonsensical thus highly probable, the “naturally-selected” RNA nucleotides. Life began/evolved on Earth with the natural selection of inanimate RNA, then of some RNA nucleotides, then arriving at the ultimate mode of natural selection, self-replication.
C. Know Thyself. Life Is Simpler Than We Are Told
The origin-reason and the purpose-fate of life are mechanistic, ethically and practically valueless. Life is the cheapest commodity on Earth. As Life is just another mass format, due to the oneness of the universe it is commonsensical that natural selection is ubiquitous for ALL mass formats and that life, self-replication, is its extension. And it is commonsensical, too, that evolutions, broken symmetry scenarios, are ubiquitous in all processes in all disciplines and that these evolutions are the “quantum mechanics” of the processes.
Human life is just one of many nature’s routes for the natural survival of RNAs, the base primal Earth organisms.
Life’s evolution, self-replication:
Genes (organisms) to genomes (organisms) to monocellular to multicellular organisms:
Individual monocells to cooperative monocells communities,“cultures”. Monocells cultures to neural systems, then to nerved multicellular organisms.
Human life is just one of many nature’s routes for the natural survival of RNAs, the base Earth organism. It is up to humans themselves to elect the purpose and format of their life as individuals and as group-members.
