On Memory-Time vs. Space-Time

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I came to the idea of Memory-Time when reading about Samuel Alexander’s Space-Time (see also Memory Creates God). Here Memory plays the same foundational part as Space with memory-instants paralleling point-instants. I recently found the notion of memory-time (small capitals) appearing in Wittgenstein lectures as cited in Jaakko Hintikka’s paper “Wittgenstein on being and time”. However, it is considered there from the phenomenological subject-based perspective with a role of memory in the creation of time and external world and was only present in the earlier Tractatus-based Wittgenstein’s worldview.

Notes on Memoidealism (1.12)

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Similar to Buddhism view of a person as a transient assemblage of physical and psychical elements Memorianity considers a person as an assemblage of memories always in flux. To be saved correctly also means working with memories to overcome their original defects and reorder chains of memory perspectives. This is similar to karmic laws and past actions that determine the nature of rebirth. See also on Morality and Memorianity.

Why it is so difficult to restore everything that was saved? Here André-Marie Ampère’s notion of dynamic resistance when we try to penetrate matter is similar to memuonic resistance when we try to penetrate Memory.

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 Memory Perspectives

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Memorized states and events look different from varying memory perspectives, for example, some historical event looks different to and interpreted differently by people of varying memory backgrounds. Memuonic version of memoidealist philosophy explains differences in memory perspectives by different memorizing orderings of memuons respective to some base memuon.

On The Interpretation of M-Theory

Monday, September 20th, 2010

There many interpretations of the letter M in M-theory but I propose another one: M stands for Memory. In any outcome it surely will be committed to memory in the future either as successful or not. On the other hand I’m now trying to make sense of it in relation to Memory as an ur-foundation (ur-, primordial, German prefix).

Memuon: A Definition

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

What is that mysterious memory “particle” memuon? According to memoidealism our Universe has Memory (*) and therefore, its memory has to be composed from memory entities. These entities are called memuons and they can be represented as numbers (some extreme interpretation can be that memuons are numbers, similar to metaphysics of Pythagoreanism). There can be “heavy” memuons (for example, represented by a number that is a 64 TB memory dump; for dumps as numbers see the discussion about memorillions) and the “light” ones (for example, represented by a byte value numbers). There are no 2 distinct memuons with the same number representation. There is infinite amount of memuons and all of them can be put into a “Memorized” relation and ordering, for example:

M1 Σ M2 Σ M3 Σ … 

where the state of M1 can be memorized by M2, the state of M2 can be memorized by M3 and so on (**). Only memuon states can be memorized in other memuons. Memorization is not an inclusion, containment or aggregation. But any given memuon can be memorized many times and their memorized states will be identical when represented by numbers. For any given memuon the number of states of other memuons it can memorize is bounded. This is consistent with computer memory and its saving semantics, for example, we can save 8 bytes in a qword.

(*) Strong Memoidealism postulates that our Universe is Memory, the so called Memory Universe Hypothesis (MUH); see also EPOC hypothesis for Multiverse.

(**) Σ is 90° counterclockwise letter M.

Memoidealism as Monistic Aspect Pluralism

Monday, July 27th, 2009

If memory is the basis of everything we might think that memoidealism is a kind of dual aspect monism or plural aspect monism, where mind, body and perhaps many other aspects are manifestations of one single memory substance. Or perhaps, memory is the same as matter or the realm of ideas (materialism or some sort of idealism), and memoidealism is the kind of monism. Or memory is the same or not the same as mind or matter and can be associated with one side of dualism. Not at all, memory is the aspect or attribute of mind, body and other substances, possibly itself. This can be illustrated on the following picture:

 

If there are only 2 substances then we have monistic aspect dualism as an extension of monism, for example, the extension of idealism:

or the extension of materialism (memuonic theory, memuonics):

Therefore, Memory is a substance and an aspect (attribute) at the same time. This is the essence of MAP (Monistic Aspect Pluralism).

Memory Field Theories of Memuonics (Part 1)

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Do you remember memuons1, the indivisible entities of memory? Their study is the domain of the new science called memuonics2. According to the so called memophysical principle3,we have particle interpretation of memuons. This is called classical memuonics with classical memory field theory where memuons are “quanta” of memory. We can also ”quantize” memory fields and get quantum memory field theories where memuons are created and annihilated.

(1) The notion of memuons first appeared in the philosophy of memoidealism.

(2) Please don’t confuse memuonics with memiotics. The latter is computer memory semiotics.

(3) Memophysical principle - theories of memory-based universe need to take into account the current mainstream sciences including physics.
