Hi. I found this site while having some consciousness discussions on reddit.

I've been a Chief Technology Officer for 25+ years, including two public companies. I have 12 patents around engagement and learning. My interests include theoretical physics, evolutionary psychology, cognition, AI, ethics, and all things music/dance/art/design. My modus operandi is to try to get to the abstraction around a problem. I delve into the details enough to formulate my hypothesis on the patterns I see. Then I will evolve those theories based on new information. But I don't have the time, nor the capacity, to be deeply read in everything I think about. What I do have is the ability to abstract quickly and to abstract about abstraction. I am also highly emotionally aware and have spoken with 2,000 different people in the past 18 months about their hopes, dreams, and desires. The patterns I found there inform my work as well as they serve as a real human laboratory for iteration of theories.

I have several theories that I am working on and welcome anyone's input on these

1 - Time is the first dimension, Space is the second. Time is the only wave function. Gravity is nothingness which is why gravitons will never be found; the warping of time-space is warping around the collapse of the time wave function--which proceeds excruciatingly slowly from our point of view. Because gravity is nothing, it cannot be conserved. the Big Bang started with every quantum dot filled with a proton. And the universe is resolving itself through the time wave function. Observers must be included because no observers exist outside of time. 

2 - Life evolved in the oceans as a superconductive charge density wave. Over time sensors were evolved that detected the absence of light. All evolution follows from here. Over time more sensors and Brownian motion gave way to pattern recognition and bodily movements. I believe our brains record every 1/n second of our life by recording a snapshot of on stimuli (12Mbits approx) and an n-bit summary of binary decisions to arrive at emotion. 

3 - When new information is received, emotional valuation is conducted by the limbic system, valance is considered (with valence being a scale from pure safety to possible death of self, others, the world). Negative emotional evaluations produce GABA in quantities to slow the brain so it can focus on the current stimuli. In absence of emotional evaluation, and accelerated by positive evaluations, the brain's only real function is to create dopamine and its siblings. Because of this, the natural state of humanity, when they fully accept things without judgement is mania. A flooding of dopamine, serotonin, etc. that makes us feel elated and happy. When presented with new information that does not change existing beliefs, we learn very quickly. When presented with new information that does change existing beliefs, we slow down because all existing beliefs about our experiences must also be updated. 

4 - When interacting with ourselves, others, and the environment, we always present an equal and opposite reaction per Newton's law. These reaction is based on our beliefs and take the core feelings we have -- acceptance vs. rejections and turn it into emotions. These emotions then determine the response. For example, if someone says you cannot do something, you can apply no emotional judgement (they don't know what I can do) or you can apply emotions such as (they know I can do but they are jealous). When emotions are determined, work must be done within the brain, GABA must be produced, and the brain operates slower because of the induced latency.

5 - IQ and Emotional Sensitivity are both highly correlated to acceptance of self, others, the world without emotional evaluation. The effects are instant and once a major blocker to someone's positive self perception is removed, they instantly feel euphoric and begin to operate at a "higher" level.

There's more....but I need to stop for now. Will try to remember to update at a different time.

Looking forward to amazing and challenging discussions here.

Cheers, Steven.
