The Conscious Spiritual-Energy Quanta (CSE Quanta) - The Physico-Mathematical Formalism

Authors: Moninder Singh Modgil
Comments: 12 Pages. This paper is part of a paper presented at, "Conference on Science of Consciousness, Tuscon, Arizona, USA, April 2016". The original paper is entitled - "REVEALING THE REAL SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH A NOVEL DIVINE SACRED GEOMETRICAL STRUCTURE OF CO

Consciousness is projected as property of a particle termed - "The Conscious Spiritual-Energy Quanta (CSE Quanta)". This paper assumes a correspondence between the physical laws and meta-physical laws. Meta-Wave functions of CSE Quanta, meditative state, rapture, avtar, and creation and annhilation operators for CSE Quanta are proposed. Concept of Meta-Bose-Einstein condensation during meditation is presented. Fractal sub-structure of CSE Quanta and mechanism for storage of an infinite amount of information in it is proposed. This paper is part of a paper presented at, "Conference on Science of Consciousness, Tuscon, Arizona, USA, April 2016". The original paper is entitled - "REVEALING THE REAL SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH A NOVEL DIVINE SACRED GEOMETRICAL STRUCTURE OF CONSCIOUS QUANTA".

The Flying Spaghetti Monster Is a Mathematician

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 6 Pages.

First, some background information from Wikipedia's article "Flying Spaghetti Monster" ( - The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism (a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarian), a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools. Pastafarianism is legally recognized as a religion in Poland, in The Netherlands, and in New Zealand - where Pastafarian representatives have been authorized to celebrate weddings and where the first legally recognized Pastafarian wedding was performed in April 2016. In the same month in the United States, a Federal Judge ruled that the "Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" is not a real religion. The "Flying Spaghetti Monster" was first described in a satirical open letter written by Bobby Henderson in 2005 to protest the Kansas State Board of Education decision to permit teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes. In that letter, Henderson satirized creationism by professing his belief that whenever a scientist carbon-dates an object, a supernatural creator that closely resembles spaghetti and meatballs is there "changing the results with His Noodly Appendage". Henderson argued that his beliefs were just as valid as intelligent design, and called for equal time in science classrooms alongside intelligent design and evolution. After Henderson published the letter on his website, the Flying Spaghetti Monster rapidly became an Internet phenomenon and a symbol of opposition to the teaching of intelligent design in public schools. Now for the science bits I wrote after switching on my computer and learning of the world's first Pastafarian wedding. I had to look up the P word – I was right about the Rastafarian part, but thought the first letters had something to do with Pakistan. A mere 10 years ago, the prophet Bobby Henderson revealed that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Many people regard the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a light-hearted look at religion. But since the prophet has stated that "the only dogma allowed in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the rejection of dogma", more serious speculation is also permitted. This includes the Mathematical Might of the Monster – an attribute bestowing Monster-ous SubGenius such that this world (especially its "enlightened" science journals) cannot imagine or acknowledge.

Gods and Dictatorships: a Defence of Heroical Apatheism

Authors: Ian von Hegner
Comments: 17 Pages.

ABSTRACT: Democracy is usually contrasted with the concept of dictatorship, and is defined as a type of government in which power flows from the citizens to the leaders of government, who are selected through free elections. This article argues, that if the concept of democracy is generalized to be universally applicable, then the concept of hypothetical gods’ right to rule results in dictatorship. Whereas the concepts of dictator and tyrant originally had a more positive meaning, those meanings have changed. However, the concept of the gods in the philosophical debate has avoided a similar redefinition in light of democracy, despite the fact, that it involves the same negation of modern fundamental rights. The basic democratic idea posits that all of its members have a full and equal status. If this status is generalized to be universally applicable, then it follows that humankind likewise are not second and first class among hypothetical gods. The existence or nonexistence of the gods is here defined as the secondary question, whereas the principal acceptance of hypothetical gods’ right to rule in a democratic context with respect to concepts of freedom is defined as the primary question. The position of heroical apatheism is argued as an alternative to positions such as theism, atheism, and agnosticism. These positions only concern themselves with the ontological or epistemological question of whether the gods exist, whereas heroical apatheism concerns itself with the primary component missing so far, namely democratic rights and dignity. This is a discussion that I consider as having been overlooked in modern philosophical discussions.
