Cosmology for the Ridiculous

What are the three models of the universe?

DISCLAIMER: Another whopper that took a lot out of me. I sincerely apologize to any individual who feels that reading this was a major waste of their time. I enjoy wasting of time, I think It’s one of the most pragmatic activities one can practise. So get a glass of water and get ready for one of the most ridiculous post I’ve had the pleasure of writing. The Cosmos series is a tribute and an overview of the body of work of the philosopher Alan W. Watts(see the P.S. section of article Reality Is Bliss for more information.)

A myth is an image, in terms of which we try to make sense of the world. There are three great images under which human beings have been operating for the past two thousand years and maybe more. They have influenced the way we talk and the language we use, the way we think and our common sense, and even the way we see our external surroundings. The following is an attempt to describe the three models of the universe. These are the ceramic or mechanic, organic and the dramatic.

Mechanics of Surprise

What are the underlying principles involving surprises?

All perfectly known futures have already passed. When everything gets explained away, the element of surprise has gone and one loses interest in them. When you know the outcome of a game, you scrap it and start a new one. It is very difficult to surprise one’s self, but that too, happens more often than people realize. We are always searching new ways to get the unexpected result. This article is an attempt to describe the mechanics involving surprises.

The Game of Opposites

Is life just a game?

DISCLAIMER: This article is the motherlode of all that I had in mind about four years ago. I’ve published it many times before and hoping it will stay this time. I recommend some water to keep your brain hydrated. The Cosmos series is a tribute and an overview of the body of work of the philosopher Alan W. Watts(see the P.S. section of article Reality Is Bliss for more information).

The basic game of the world, also the basis of all other games, is the game of Hide and Seek. It’s an immense on and off system. Yes and No. Black and White. Positive and Negative. What looks like explicitly different, is implicitly the same. They are one. This is the secret conspiracy of the opposites. As you cannot have a one pole magnet, you cannot have positive without the negative. They imply each other. This is the game we all agreed to. Whether we were aware of it or not. The following is an attempt to describe the game aspect of the universe, and it’s rules.

Chapter One - The Encounter

The first chapter of my new blog story The Strange Case of the Other-worlders.

There is an old tale told of the other-worlders, who shift in and out of existence. Sometimes for a flash, sometimes for a longer period. But in all cases it is equally terrifying when it happens. Nobody knows who or what they are. Some theorised they were apparitions or spirits of the departed, others thought they were time travellers or beings from another dimension. But little did I know, that I would be running into them within the next hour.

The Ultimate Problem

What is the quintessential problem? And how do we answer it?

A student walked up to a master. He sat down in front of him. “Master, I have a problem I cannot solve.” the student started.
