This post was inspired by a conversation I had with my friend G. about how our minds go from being a continuum of consciousness to something that’s really two-dimensional. What I found most intriguing was the way that the two notions of continuity in the previous paragraph are really two different concepts; and yet they are both connected to our daily experiences.
The continuity of consciousness is the state of being. If you can think about it like this, you probably know what I mean. Basically, you can think of your consciousness as a stream of consciousness, which is like the continuous flow of a fluid, like a stream of water.
Consciousness is the state of being when you are awake, which is the same as dreaming in a way because you can think of your consciousness waking up as your dreams waking up.
This all comes back to the word “consciousness.” Consciousness is not just what you know but also how you know what you know. For instance, if you know that you are a human, you can know that you are awake. But if you think of your consciousness waking up as your dreams waking up, you might think that you can think of your consciousness waking up as an event in your dreams.
This is how we think of consciousness. If you think of your consciousness waking up as your dreams waking up, it seems like you are in a dream, but then you probably would be in a dream. So we have a term, consciousness, that is more descriptive than anything else, but it’s not what I want to talk about.
So let’s start with consciousness. Consciousness is a term that describes a state of being. A dream is a state of being. When you wake up the first time and your consciousness wakes up, that’s consciousness. When you wake up the second time, it’s a dream. Or more specifically, when you wake up the second time, that’s consciousness. When you wake up the third time, it’s a dream again.
In quantum mechanics, the term consciousness is a bit different. As the physicist David Mermin has written in his book, Consciousness and the Quantum, when you have a conscious experience it is not, in essence, a state of being. It is an event in space and time. It’s not a state of being. It’s a state of being that has an effect on space and time.
Time is not like a quantum-mechanical wave. It has no definite shape or location or boundary. It is a continuum, a continuum that is infinite and constantly changing. Its time is an idea. It is the idea of a timeless continuum, that is, a continuum that remains unchanged over time and is infinitely renewable.
That’s a good point. I don’t think the concept of time is really what it is, but it does seem to me that the concept of time and space is quite different. Time is a continuum and space is a continuum. Time is infinite and always changing. Space is infinite and always changing. Time is the idea of quantum-mechanical waves that have no definite shapes or locations and no end, no end, no end, and no end. Time is a continuum.
The idea of time is really the idea of a continuum, and space is the idea of a continuum. Each one of us has a different idea of how time and space work. I know that I have an idea of time that is basically the same as yours, and for me, space is the idea of a continuum.
