The god thingy,
Actually I like that title. It disconnects Original Causality from any humanlike attributes.
I don’t think anyone would dispute that there was an Original Causality, but to give this Causality any kind of human emotional attributes is preposterous, IMO.
As an ex-musician I can get behind “string theory” and as a retired bookkeeper I can get behind a purely “mathematical theory”
In fact I see these as having a strong connection to each other. Strings vibrate and create waves of specfic frequencies, which give mathematicalvalue to the waves.
Mathematical values are deterministic in how strings and waves behave. I see a natural affinity between the two.
Now if we add Bohm’s Pilot Wave theory, which identifies the “wholeness and implicate orders”, which create a hierarchical evolutionary process of “potentials becoming expressed”, it seems to me we have identified the fundamental ingredients necessary for a “probabilistic causality”, a form of cascading “causalities and specific effects”, IOW a dynamic medium such as the Higgs field which has a non-zero value and is responsible for giving mass to random values.
Renate Loll et al, have added a final ingredient by introducing “fractality” to the menu and to me this probabilistic menu, given sufficient time and amounts, the near infinite energy generated (even if it started as a singularity), might well lead to a spontaneously cascading release of this energy (BB), which created the “Higgs Field” which gives mass to individual values.
I may be wrong in certain details here, but as Hazen said in his lecture on chemical interactions, the process must have been somewhat similar to this progressive dynamical formation of the universe as we know it today.
No emotionally motivated intent driving this process, just probabilities and sufficient space and time give these basic ingredients and their potentials a high probability of becoming expressed.
If you haven seen this, watch the Hazen lecture at the Carnegie Institute on how living organisms almost certainly evolved, from purely chemical interactions. If inanimate chemicals can give rise to life, it seems that such a probabilistic process might well have happened at a much more subtle scale, giving rise to the universe itself.
It is really a very informative and easy to follow lecture.
