Cosmic A-Hole: Nebulon, self-help guru wannabe

I was wrapping around my head around nuggets such as this, from objective reductionist theory (OR). For some reason, reading this caused a second train of thought in my mind to record an interesting insight, though I can't reasonably explain how, just some similar terminology.

Quoth Stuart Hameroff:

Every superposition is considered a separation in the underlying structure of spacetime, or fabric of the universe, with each branch of the separation evolving separately—resulting in two different universes.

The universe divides like a living cell into two nearly identical copies. Roger (Penrose) agreed that superpositions are indeed separations in the underlying spacetime fabric, or geometry of the universe. He pointed out that Einstein’s general relativity meant that matter was equivalent to curvature in spacetime, so that a particle in two places is the same as simultaneous spacetime curvatures in opposite directions—a bubble in the underlying fabric of reality.

But in Roger’s view these separations, or bubbles, are unstable—even if decoherence is avoided. Rather than evolve to form a new universe, the spacetime separations eventually reach an objective threshold for self-collapse, or quantum state reduction, and choose one bit of reality or the other. And when that happens, he argued, this self- collapse—OR—resulted in a moment, a fundamental unit or quantum, of conscious awareness.


Suddenly the capacity for a dimension warping alien to get interested in matters of consciousness makes a certain intuitive sense. While the application of these ideas I’ve sampled here is still to be fulfilled in my imagination, I think about Nebulon, and all these fun details arise.

But, failing to understand what it is that makes our absurd, ridiculous species strive for the apex of the attainable, Nebulon only groks humanity from a cynical point of view. Not only are we ridiculous, we are all failures. Broken down thus, the consciousness can be reshaped to do the wonders such as those perpetuated by our would-be savior Nebulon, as portrayed in the stories discussed of late here in Integr8d Fix.

Well, you can certainly tell his attitude was suitable for being a villain, not so long before. He didn’t care about us when he tried to steal our polar caps, and to do what he would’ve to a people is not to have much esteem for them. So, despite the illumination of learning with the Lubderdites, he’s fallen into a self-righteousness whereby he will save our pitiful fool selves.
You can’t really help anyone you look down upon, is the moral of the story.
