see also 2006 Programming the Universe by Seth Lloyd
Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Physics at MIT

This (2006) seminal Lloyd work came out after Summa I (November, 1988)
and Summa II (March, 2005). - and prior to Summa III (2014).

 

 

Professor Seth Lloyd - from stellar MIT - furnishes a (timely ;) crucial -
and hitherto missing - breakthrough
cutting-edge science nuts & bolts mechanics / quantum physics mechanism
to backstop the metaphysics of Summa Theory.


translation: 'Insider' Lloyd of MIT ensures (in 2006) that 'outlier' Birnbaum's proposed (1988, 2005, 2014) global and over-arching (macro-micro) paradigm shift will prevail.

Q3

 

To sketch out Evolution, one needs to craft a new and important term for our lexicon (to encapsule a dynamic)

As per the three panels Birnbaum:Lloyd above, Lloyd furnishes the quantum mechanics to support the Birnbaum metaphysics.

Pegging-off of Lloyd's quantum mechanics (via bits) proposition for Quantum information processing / computing / engineering, let -

Q3 = quantum (via bits) -
information processing /
computing /
engineering

We fold Q3 into (fused) Q4P

This (fused) Q4P is what yields Evolution

Q4P = Infinite Quest for Potential
and
Q3 = Quantum-information processing + Quantum-computing + Quantum-engineering

 

 

And, it is (fused) Q4P which tweaks the genomes
... and yields Evolution

(fused) Q4P tweaking the genomes

 

EVOLUTION

 

Note from D Birnbaum:

What Charles Darwin (On the Origin of Species 1859) reads as 'natural selection'; what George C. Williams (Adaptation and Natural Selection, 1966) and Richard Dawkins (The Selfish Gene 1976) are reading as 'gene-centered Evolution'; what Murray Gell-Man (The Quark and the Jaguar 1994) is viewing as 'complex adaptive systems''; what Stuart Kauffman (At Home in the Universe 1995) is reading as 'self-organizing systems'; what David Pines (Complex Adaptive Matter 2005) is reading as 'complex adaptive matter', are all actually one and the same:

the Birnbaum Evolution hypothesis -

What they are viewing, is actually (fused) Q4P tweaking the genomes

More technically, they are (typically) viewing Q4P/Q3 on a local-level/micro-level tweaking an individual genome.

However, the plot thickens....

a) (fused) Q4P Evolution is operating simultaneously in an integrated fashion across all the genomes of our planet (and maybe, maybe - of the universe).

b) Meaning, the educated hypothesis is that plant genomes will be tweaked ensemble with human genomes and ensemble with insect genomes, etc.

c) Why the integrated choreography? Because, of course, all the 'pieces' need to advance (and fit/interact) together ensemble / efficiently / dynamically - on the C+ march towards E+.

*

note: the now-established phenomenon (per Carl R. Woese d. 2012) of H.G.T (Horizontal Gene Transfer) - that DNA itself can indeed move sideways, across barriers, from one kind of creature to another -  would buttress (Summa's) Fusion Evolution Theory above.

Summa (just above) posits simultaneous (varied) tweaking across 'barriers' (life forms); Woese (in the late 1990s) posited simultaneous identical DNA-cluster replicating across 'barriers'. So, Woese was on a parallel but different track. [However, I suspect that Woese may have missed important variations in the 'replications' - and, in fact, was observing precisely what I am hypothesizing.]

*

the mechanism: C+ (Complexification)  per Summa
the goal: E+ (Extraordinariation)  per Summa
the physics back-end: see Seth Loyd
for intro to the quantum mechanics piece

Five billion (ever more sophisticated and wondrous) species over the (3.8 billion year) course of life on our planet.

Random mutations crucially setting the stage for the inexorable advance/expansion and Complexification of the species on our planet?
No, the random mutations are a side show, not the main event.

So, Evolution, YES; but the catalyst and driver is (fused) Q4P.

Notwithstanding the politically correct pro-Darwinian view, random genetic mutations in nature are (per Potentialism Theory) respectfully simply not an important factor in evolutionary biology. And, yes, correct, Natural Selection, a pillar of modern biology, falls. These two inter-related key planks of iconic Darwinism - Random Mutation as key; Natural Selection as the driver of Evolution] however established in modern science, will not withstand the intellectual assault posed by Potentialism. And, All the king's horses and all the king's men..... Sic Transit Gloria.

["Common Ancestor" aka "Common Descent", another legacy of Darwin, is not challenged by Potentialism Theory directly.]

Respectfully, classic and well-established Probability Theory would reject random mutation generating five billion species over 3.8 billion years as a viable denouement. Probability Theory can be deployed for possibility, not for de facto impossibility*. [To argue to the contrary - per the mainstream consnsus - is, respectfuly, simply group-think run amok.]

As in cosmology, randomness is clearly amply present on-stage in Evolution, but, once again, is not the defining component.

In both cosmology and evolutionary biology, (fused) Q4P is 'cracking the whip' and 'running the show'; not Randomness. Evidence? Look around you.

Both cosmology and related evolutionary biology are 'directional', not random-chance. In both cases, we do not ride a multi-billion year trajectory towards E+ (Extraordinariation) via randomness. It is hard enough for ('directional') metaphysical/quantum intelligence (fused) Q4P to pull this off. ; ) Building-out the Cosmic Order - ongoing over the eons - requires a prime time catalyst - (fused) Q4P.

 

 

*See Lloyd, Programming the Universe, Knopf, 2007, NY, p. 57

"In fact, the chance of an ordered universe like ours arising out of random flips of a coin is so small as to be effectively zero."

. Cosmology Evolution

aimless/random aimless/random mutation
- with survival-directional
Darwinism then guiding
Potentialism

Directional

Q4P

Thus, Randomness Formulation deploys a non-directional 'play' - aimlessness -
somehow first to ignite our universe. and then to sustain / drive / iterate / optimize / expand
our universe - over a 14 billion year span and counting. In the mix, non-directional 'aimlessness' somehow - miraculously - allegedly via random mutations - drives Evolution forward from a single cell entity to 21st Century humans and associated consciousness. Quite a feat for an 'aimless' play.

Potentialism, on the other hand, deploys its quite-directional core dynamic -
(fused) Q4P - across both Cosmology and Evolution.

*

Classic Random Mutation Evolution Theory has been inculcated into our psyches since we were in elementary school; it has become de facto dogma.

(Challenger) Evolution Fusion theory is brand new to our psyches, and our brains will need to assess this 'intruder' before accepting/intergrating the new theory. As noted at the top, "Revolutions take time to settle in". But, best not to tarry, as science moves apace...

Note, however, that once one integrates as possible working hypotheses (a) the eternality of potential, and (b) Wheeler's general proposition of It from Bit, the inevitable path vectors to Evolution Fusion - as a (significantly) more powerful alternative working hypothesis.

Evolution is, at a minimum, planet-wise

 

 

 

emphasis: All the genomes on our planet are tweaked ensemble. The tweaking is choreographed to channel all the gennomes to harmoniously optimize their C+ with related genomes - and all are ultimately related, of course - enroute together towards E+. And, as noted, the E+ target can - and does - change, as (fused) Q4P intermittently re-calibrates.

 

 

Obviously, this SuperFormula+ could only have been valid
from the point that Quantum Mechanics - including its building-out aspect - has been operational in its current form.

Consequently we simply do not know if (fused) Q4P goes as far back as solitary Q4P.

QMI*

Quantum Mechanics Intelligence

 

So, not AI (Artificial Intelligence),
but (organic) QMI (Quantum Mechanics Intelligence).

My sub-hypothesis (from my grander overarching Potentialism Theory) is that Q4P/QMI is essentially what has been perceived over the millennia as 'God' or the 'God-Force' or 'a Higher Force'. Through another lens: 'God' is an avatar for Q4P/QMI.

*

Looking at my above QMI hypothesis through another lens:

 QMI 
produced
 human intelligence 
which produced
 AI 

- but each is quite distinct and unique

 

Zooming-out:

The universe is directional and intentional;
it is not defined by randomness or aimlessness.

Another, more provocative way of articulating the above
is that the universe is smart, as opposed to dumb.

 

* a Birnbaum-hypothesized term

CHRONOLOGY 1000

The Footprint of Potential

a rough sketch

Chronology of the Universe

Eternal Origins → Present

( a metaphysics hypothesis )

introductory note: Hitherto Inscrutable Quantum Mechanics (QM) has at least two 'faces' which we are now (OCT 2017) aware of:
(a) the Potential/Possibility/Probabilistic 'face', and
(b) the Wheeler It-from-Bit 'face' as a prelude to the Lloyd Bits Compute the Universe 'face' build-out thereof

# rough sketch chronology - 1

Eternal Potential - as opposed-to Nothing - defines Eternal Origins.

# rough sketch chronology - 2

Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM) - specifically the Potential Face of
Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM) makes an appearance on-stage in primordial realms

# rough sketch chronology - 3

The interplay of Eternal Potential and Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM) → yields Infinite Quest for Potential (Q4P)

The  chronology/trajectory/direction/purpose/teleology/arc
of the universe
will follow the axis of my hypothesized/proposed*** Super-Formula

Q4P → C+ → E+

see  Super-Formula1000.com


*** proposed 2005 in  Summa II /   section: Direction of the Universe

# rough sketch chronology - 4

The interplay of Q4P and Primordial QM → yields the Wheeler It-from-Bit face of QM.......
Then the build-out of the Wheeler face - the Lloyd computing face of QM - evolves,
thus substantially filling-out pre-Big Bang QM.

# rough sketch chronology - 5

Q4P / pre-Big Bang QM plots the escape of the purely metaphysical - from the void into →
metaphysical cum reality

# rough sketch chronology - 6

Q4P / pre-Big Bang QM splits the (hypothesized) Zero-Point and ignites the Big Bang.
Meaning, Potential, not Random chance, ignites the universe

[ From a metaphysical perspective, splitting the Zero-Point, as well yields polarities:
proto-Female:proto-Male, Pluses:Minuses; Good:Evil et al..... ]

# rough sketch chronology - 7

Q4P/QM is the prime catalyst on stage choreographing the unfolding universe production; it has vast influence....

# rough sketch chronology - 8

Q4P trumps Entropy
and sustains the advance of our universe.

[ Evolution in a snapshot ]

Q4P = Quest for Potential
Q3 = Quantum-information processing + Quantum-computing + Quantum-engineering

Q4P/Q3 is the author’s fusion of Summa’s Quest for Potential (Q4P) with Lloyd’s Quantum Mechanics;

Q4P/Q3 drives Evolution

(see Evolution1000.com for fuller presentation)

*

By the Big Bang point at the latest, Q4P is fused with QMI. 

# rough sketch chronology - 9

Q4P choreographs the grand cosmic drama/trajectory of
exploding stars across the heavens → elements → life forms on earth → 21st Century humans and advanced consciousness

# rough sketch chronology - 10

Q4P (or a derivative thereof) is the Cosmological Constant identified by Albert Einstein in 1917*; Einstein theorized the Cosmological Constant as the counter-force to gravity's otherwise inevitably imploding the universe. [ Actually, it is reverse, i. e. Gravity slows down the forward march of the Cosmological Constant aka Lambda.

# rough sketch chronology - 11

The Cosmological Constant [Q4P] has become identified with the simplest form of Dark Energy (Wiki / Cosmological Constant / Oct 22, 2017]

[ note: The Cosmological Constant is also known by a shorthand notation lambda, or /\ ]

# rough sketch chronology - 12

"In physical cosmology and astronomy, dark energy [Q4P] is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of space, tending to accelerate the expansion of the universe." [Wiki / Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

[ So, the Cosmological Constant = lambda = /\ = (simple) dark energy = Q4P ]

# rough sketch chronology - 13

"Assuming that the standard model of cosmology is correct, the best current measurements indicate that dark energy [Q4P] contributes 68.3% of the total energy in the present-day observable universe." [Wiki / Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

# rough sketch chronology - 14

"Dark energy [Q4P] is the most accepted hypothesis to explain the observations since the 1990s indicating that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate." [Wiki Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

Meaning,
# no Dark Energy [Q4P], then the Big Crunch [imploding universe]
# sufficient Dark Energy [Q4P], then Expanding universe

Meaning, as well, that Potential [Q4P] is the prime determinant of the ultimate denouement of the universe; not gravity; not entropy; and most certainly not randomness

* In 1929 (Berlin) Einstein incorrectly retracted his 1917 hypothesis; but the scientific community has upheld the original (1917) hypothesis.

personal note: Both of our families lived in Berlin in 1929, and both emigrated to the USA in the 1930s, Einstein in March 1933 (while lecturing in CA → Princeton, NJ), and Birnbaum in October 1938 (pre-Kristallnact, Berlin → Madison, WISC)
