Curious Cosmos
  • Welcome to Curious Cosmos

    We are a paranormal research community for those with a severe passion for the absurd, strange, and outlandish. We're about IDEAS and DIALOGUE, doing battle in the realm of logic and wit to get to whatever kernel of truth lies at the bottom of the fringe. We love discussing weird, crazy, and impossible things, but those unwilling to have their ideas challenged should turn back now.

    Curious Cosmos is also home to Chronovisor, our custom Wayback Machine cataloging/discovery tool used in our internet archeology projects. Our goal is to revive those lost conversations and ideas for others to research and enjoy, as well as preserve and archive internet subculture of the early 2000s.

    • The ontological hypothesis... There is a strong correlation between the mind and the brain. The question is, does the brain produce thought or does the brain channel or receive basic thought impulses which are then constrained or limited by it in order to bring into focus the various communicable ideas analogously to how a lens can magnify light from the sun into a point. Indeed it is possible that the mind is more than just the production of a material brain, that is to say, a mind would ultimately not be dependent on a brain. If the mind is more than the production of a material brain, then the brain, while being correlated with the mind, is somehow independent of material objects such as brains. Basically, the essence of thought would not require a material basis but the many forms of matter and energy would depend on a fundamentally mental substratum in order to exist. A more complex brain such as the human brain has the capability to focus the non-material psychological impulses of the mental substratum into more refined forms of thought complexity. Formless mind is unbounded and unlimited. Perhaps "before" the physical universe existed the formless reality of mind condensed into various forms. These forms then combined into configurations of creative complexity. A fundamental law is the law of cause and effect. Formless mind would at first be free, then it would be divided into complex configurations of selfhood as it experienced complexity and creativity of the many forms. Eventually it returns back to the original formlessness with the greater experience of causality – a most foundational law. If mind is the basis of reality then the totality of existence is a mind. If the totality of existence is a mind then that mind exemplifies a definition for God who is the ultimate mind. God, who is the totality of existence is THAT which nothing greater can be imagined or conceived. THAT which exists in reality and in the imagination is greater or more substantial than that which exists in the imagination alone. God can exist in the imagination. It may be possible to imagine something greater than God. But since God is the totality of existence it is impossible to imagine anything greater than God who is the ultimate mind and therefore the ultimate reality. If mind is more than just a brain then God exists. https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/ontological-arguments/
    • Giving tachyons more energy causes them to slow down. Just like it is theorized to be impossible for a regular matter particle to accelerate up to the speed of light it is also theorized to be impossible for a tachyon to slow down to the speed of light. Tachyons with zero energy are proposed to travel at infinite speed.  I imagine that c, the speed of light in vacuum forms a barrier or reflective plane between time and anti-time universes. The multiverse become analogous to an infinite hall of mirrors. Some scientists have theorized that tachyons may solve the dark matter and dark energy problems in physics...   
    • According to Stuart Hameroff, Roger Penrose, and Matthew Fisher, there could be a type of quantum computation occurring in the brain.  Mental time travel, is it possible?   
    • Jacques Vallée proposed the interdimensional hypothesis whereby these grey aliens can teleport or phase shift from other experiential dimensions or alternate realities – all existing simultaneously. It might be similar to how different frequencies can be tuned on a radio dial.  These entities employ a form of time travel along with their jumps to and from these parallel dimensions.  
    • Perhaps time flows in both directions simultaneously. But, our memories can only record what is happening from the past towards the future. We do not remember anything FROM the future because we only recall what happens from the past up to the present. Seth Lloyd theorizes that the universe is a quantum computer. Perhaps there is a supreme being who operates this universal quantum computer and will occasionally rewind it back to a previous era in order to experiment with different possible scenarios... So if time were to flow backwards ...but then, only to halt in order to proceed forward again, our memories of the "previous" future(s) would be erased. Physicist Richard Feynman proposed that a positron could be an electron flowing backwards in time. Magnification of Planck's constant would entail a macroscopic quantum particle that can be engineered to encapsulate a human temporal agent. Then it would be a matter of reversing the polarity of the bubble field in order to go back in time... The memories of the people inside the field would be preserved due to the fact that their local temporal polarity would not be reversed, only that of the external bubble itself.   I suspect that the technology required for constructing a working time machine will be very advanced.
