Music, Dance and Drama sculptures the Mind itself!
Music, Drama and visual arts are constructed with
coherent sources that have the same mathematical characteristics
as lasers needed to construct holograms. Many researchers have
proven that the brain has and uses holographic processes. The
coherent sources of music are in the time dimension as Beat and
time signature as three four or two four with an alteration of
heavy and weak beats. In this case there is greater flexibility
than with symmetrical sources such as laser light. The time dimension
is also used in Drama but what is shown is the interference pattern
and seldom the original cyclical coherent pattern that is the
laser in a physical hologram. Drama shows how situations act as
coherent sources that reconstruct the hologram called personality
which results in ones fate called comedy or tragedy. This is how
one hologram can be used as a coherent source of layering other
resonant holograms. The other characters are also holograms created
in the mind of the main character in a spatial dimension that
in music is represented by harmony and the key signature. This
was called the modes or "moods", but now in western
culture has been reduced to Major as happy comedy and minor as
sad or tragedy.
Western music embodied in the symphony orchestra
and chamber music is also a sculpture of how the mind produces
culture. Because biological neural networks, especially brains,
are self organizing, our basic nature cannot be taught or supervised
just as the musician must learn to play their instrument before
they participate in performance. So culture can take place by
creating representations of the structure of neural networks and
consequently mind that can be shared as if we are all inside one
large virtual skull. Then the total sum of all the tasks necessary
for "existence" can be divided and distributed among
many individuals as is done in the symphony. Each individual produces
only a fragment of the total cultural mind, but by sharing a common
representation of the music they can produce a complete experience
in a holographic time context! They can even go so far as to do
the biological impossible task of many performing an identical
task simultaneously as is done in the string sections of the orchestra.
This "Sculpture" also embodies the paradigms of culture. In church music the sound was unified choral music coming from above as if from heaven and behind as if removed from the intellectual functions of the front of the brain. The sound had a seamless quality as if unending eternity. In the scientific age music is produced by instruments separate from the "body" and each note is individually controlled by outside forces [the composer] as the new Newtonian model of a Universe of separate particles controlled by energy and collisions! The musicians are not considered able to play together but must follow and be controlled by a one true representative of the composer! The music came from in front and slightly above the Audience as if aimed at the intellect.
In our modern age the music of rock seems to emerge
from everywhere [because of the extreme loudness] and from inside
the body where we all share the same heart [drum] beat which is
like space as energy that moves us: gravity as the shape of space
Music consulting and teaching over the WWW! Impossible? I will present an understanding of the nature of music as it exists and works in the brain / Mind and the nature of beauty. Music is an external representation of the deep structure of the brain having to do with how we are conscious using interference patterns of the holomind directly, not reconstructing them into their original form for some mysterious "self" somewhere inside the mind to experience. The direct experience of the fractal structure of nature and "Art" in resonance with brain / Mind activity is what is experienced as beauty from the tree to the sunset to Mozart.
Music teaching can use MIDI and as the technology increases, live
exchange worldwide! I have considered teaching Double Bass in
Asia and now I can consult even with other instruments. My students
have been very pleased, but because of other commitments I have
not advertised before this time. People involved in non Western
Classical traditions [Jazz and Rock] have found that my methods
connect and utilize their background. I start with chamber music:
bassists play the cello parts of Baroque or early Classical composers
such as Haydn and Mozart.
Teaching and Study: how to construct "Mind"
Mind written in the time dimension as a hologram has the same scanning properties as a hologram in space: one can look at a hologram thru a magnifying glass or microscope and see different levels of resolution or "depths". In the time dimension humans can stop or slow down or speed up a process and examine each step and the connectivity structure of the process including self reference as when one learns a language with the use of their original language. Time refers to biological time and processes which in our animal mind is called emotion and sensation. "E" motion refers to the intelligence of the mid-brain which is a continuous process, not discrete fragments as language. Thus language as a representation of the codes that produce emotion in the mid-brain can be stopped, started, slowed down or replayed in any order. It can be changed or rewritten and then applied to the process. One of the best illustrations of this is learning a musical instrument, then learning the music and then playing music in a group. Only when performing the music is there a "real" flow or process that cannot be interrupted or it turns into a practice.
Why should anyone make the effort to understand holographic mind
and its properties? This is the process of understanding what
it is to be human and how we use our human skills and that being
human allows a sharing beyond or transcending time itself!
This also allows understanding that life is a process that flows and language representations can and do interrupt that process - flow. Sometimes being with another is like playing - being a symphony not to be interrupted but to be experienced as ecstasy - rapture - bliss!
Humans use language to represent mind, but they also represent
what they believe to be mind based on the logics of language!
Space and time are two such "concepts" which in their
logical form have no reality: space in not constructed around
3 dimensional right angles [90 degrees], but around 60 degree
angles as Buckminster Fuller pointed out, and now we know that
it has a fractal structure due to time processes of iteration
which become coherent sources for creating holographic mind as
well as "scales" or levels of resolution in " fractal
space". These "assumptions" of logic, based on
the physiology [construction] of our bodies and the procedures
/ calculations necessary to operate in space and time, distract
humans from the reality of what processes are [and have been]
used to generate "life" forms and biology! These arbitrary
abstractions result in our ignoring [ignorance as the basis of
thought] our real connections to reality in favor of concepts
that are easier to handle and manipulate, and make it easier for
a subject [a constructed representation of "inside"]
to manipulate a "World" made up of objects [a constructed
representation of "outside"]. Thus what humans mean
by "time" is a fiction or illusion based on the logic
of representations, not on the bio-logic of how mind is constructed!
Holomind: The viewpoint that I inherited is that some kind of holographic type of process is used to create and store memories. The possibility that mind and life processes started and continue as holograms seems to be missed, especially in understanding the structure of every cell of our body as containing a map of the whole human in the DNA. Encoded in the DNA are instructions on how to build and operate the "body" as well as how to respond to diverse situations and repel invaders. Holographic mind is part of these instructions: how to build and operate mind in response to reality of the world after birth. This is a code of processes and operations, not just of memories. Understanding it as holographic from the point of view of retrieval means that "situation" for which the code was created is embedded within the code and when that situation reappears, it reassembles or accesses the original process and operations involved in "dealing" with the situation.
[This "appears" to be or resembles stimulus / response and operand conditioning.]
These are sequential codes like the beat of a drum or the reoccurrence of the seasons or the time to sleep or eat that respond in time. The advantage of understanding this is to understand that this process has no separation between self and situation which seemingly occurs in other types of consciousness. There are boundaries and limits built into the process, but once the situation is "recognized" the entire process is "activated".
What is the structure of holographic mind? The structure of Mind
is found by reversing the properties of a hologram which stores
all information in each single cycle in each location. [Such duplication
is not that useful and is used to generate variety and alternatives.]
The mind generates all possible representations from a single
structure, so it is not a hologram but a holographic process.
What is useful is a single model that can generate all alternatives,
a single structure that can be used to produce representations
of everything at anytime. That is language! If music is about
the structure of mind then language is the final "result"
of holographic mind. Each word is a metamap free of specific location
in time or place. So the coherence used to reconstruct is a set
of phase structures. This set was first investigated as Astrological
Charts, but is not the structure that "shines thru"
to produce thought and representations. The hologram is only the
sent of mind! A suggestion of its properties. No mind then means
not being stuck in a personal mind attached to my birth / conception
structure, but being BEING in the here and now to allow each moment
be the pattern of being. No-mind doesn't need to use self as a
filter to construct a coherent world. The wish fulfilling GEM!!
Understanding these structures provides a passage to a direct
connection to human learning. Additional support is given in the
areas known as cognitive psychology and NLP [Neural Linguistic
Programming] as well as 12 step groups in that we cannot change
our "mind" [biologic time mid brain] or addictions from
the point of view of logics and shoulds founded in the language
nets. From a logic point of view we know what is good and bad,
but that is in the logic language stream. Humans must rewrite
holo-mind from the bio-logic of cycles: one day at a time!!!!
