Morality and Memorianity

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Memorianity provides a foundation for moral conduct, individual and social character development because it is based on a revelation that everything is saved. The theistic variation of this memory religion has also an organic and harmonious notion of Memory Deity. May you be memorized.

Memory Creates God

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Where’s God in Memorianity (memory religion)? It borrows Samuel Alexander’s notion of the emergence of God as a new synthesis from patterns. In Alexander’s philosophy the basis of nature is space-time continuum with point-instants. In memoidealism (which is a metaphysical foundation of Memorianity) Memory is the basis of everything and in its memuonic formulation memuons play the role of memory-instants. Their patterns also involve emergents on every hierarchy level with Mind emerging at some memory organization level and then out of mind level we have emerging Deity.

On God and Miracles

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Memoidealism explains God as Inaccessible Memory (Memory Region A on the picture below). It means that Memory Region B doesn’t have pointers that point outside of it. In other words, all operating fields of Region B pointers are in Region B. However, Region A can have pointers pointing to Region B and modify it, effectively producing a miracle as perceived by Region B. In other words, some perception field links of Region B pointers may come from outside. You can object that Region B can have deeper pointers by making their memory locations bigger (from N-bit to 2*N-bit for example) but Memory may not be flat, discrete and bit-like. For one possible Christian interpretation we can replace Region B with the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1.1) and replace Region A with God-Creator (note also that in Memorianity Memory creates memories [notes on memoidealism 1.10]).

Notes on Memoidealism (1.10)

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

There is similarity between the tandem of Memoidealism / Memorianity and Mimāṃsā school of philosophy. The former is based on hermeneutics of memory snapshots and the latter is based on hermeneutics of sacred texts. People often ask is there any God in Memory Religion. The answer is both yes and no. Like in Mimāṃsā system the gods are names found in memory snapshots. In that sense Memorianity has some features of sacramental atheism. At the same time Memory is the creator of memories.

The highest title in Memorianic religious hierarchy. Equivalent to similar titles of Pope, Patriarch or Archbishop. Derived from Memoria (Latin, memory) and arch (Latin root, chief, first, rule).

Memorianic Ritual: Lunch with Books

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

A few have probably noticed (following numerous Twitter updates) my preference for combining lunches with book and  magazine (a mini-book) reading (also combined with Mod N reading system). From now on this activity obtains the status of a ritual in Memorianity and depicted on this physicalist art picture (the choice of book titles is arbitrary and fully coincidental for this post):

James Cameron’s Avatar is A Memorianic Movie 0m1

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Just before The Year 7DA I watched Avatar 3D and close to the end, when seeing ancestral trees and memory downloads, I realized that indigenous population practiced a variant of Memorianity. So I decided to name the movie A Memorianic and give it a memory number 0m1 until I find a memorianic movie 0m2.

This is another description of a memoidealistic philosophical worldview that memory exists in everything, living and nonliving. In its even stronger form, panmemorism is also a theory that memory is a part of itself, thus adding an infinite element (see Memoidealism as Monistic Aspect Pluralism for some illustrations) and providing a foundation for perceived processes.

Notes on Memoidealism (1.5)

Friday, September 18th, 2009

The notion of transmigration of memories in Memoidealism has its similarity with Orphicism. The notions of limited (memories) and unlimited memory (Memory), and “things are memories” similar to Pythagoreanism view on Limited and Unlimited, and “things are numbers”.

Exception Processing Of Crash Hypothesis (EPOCH)

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Our Universe is Unhandled Exception Processing saving one huge Memory Dump from a runaway HUC (Big Bang of Hyper-Universal Computation, or simply HUge Computation). The idea came to me some months ago but I decided to publish it after learning today about a “Mathematical Universe Hypothesis” (MUH) from Max Tegmark stating that our Universe is Mathematics.

Music for Debugging: THE ALL MIGHTY DEBUGGER

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Just finished listening twice to Rick Wakeman performance at Lincoln Cathedral. To paraphrase his words, when I do memory dump analysis I experience the feeling of power surge through the fingers. Highly recommended to get the feeling of being the debugging god back during bitter moments of software support:

At Lincoln Cathedral

Here is my version of track titles inspired by listening (with my comments in italics):

1. Process Mortality
2. Dance of the MIPS
3. Gifts from Help
5. Problem solved
6. The DA TA Variations (remember DATA: Dump Analysis Trace Analysis)
