Body’s not a sphere or string though. I suppose you can find center of gravity in any particular position and from that calculate outwards to a particular average frequency. But if you wanted the whole body to maximally vibrate in its resonance frequency, you might need to find a note whose overtones correspond with the various body cavities. Or, alternatively, play a chord.

Oh I do love the places I go when I start off from one of your posts Stephen Paul KIng . It may or may not lead into the discussions at hand, but wherever I end up is always a treat. I hadn’t known about “montevideo interpretation” but ended up at it and it’s a fascinating event-based interpretation assisting with the problem of clocks and its relationship to gravity-as-fundamental. Constructed ontologies that are in use in a number of papers are a particular treat to me as they emphasize different core “blocks” from others, allowing me to see with fresh eyes. Quantum mechanics, strong emergence and ontological non-reducibility “We show that a new interpretation of quantum mechanics, in which the notion of event is defined without reference to measurement or observers, allows to construct a quantum ontology based on systems, states and events. Unlike the Copenhagen interpretation, it does not resort to elements of a classical ontology. The quantum ontology in turn allows us to recognize that a typical behavior of quantum systems exhibits strong emergence and ontological non-reducibility. Such phenomena are not exceptional but natural, and are rooted in the basic mathematical structure of quantum mechanics.” http://philsci-archive.pitt.edu/11390/

Brain structure arises as it does from our development from conception, via DNA and in womb. Structures are differentiated within the brain for different purposes by the time you leave the birth canal. I see no reason that spontaneous emissions arising internally from within one’s own nervous system wouldn’t also utilize these same structures within the brain, including awareness.

Reading through it now. It was unsatisfying until I found “Multiple range” theory. It’s compatible with my computational-thinking and can encompass any of the other theories within it, if needed. I can work it on an Excel spreadsheet, which I once finally discovered can be accurately described as: “Step-indexed Kripke models over recursive worlds.” and “non-monotonic dataflow programming, concurrent logic programming”. So while it may not be “satisfying” (pun) for many, it’s effective.

Ok. I’ll lay out some assumptions that always come into play when I entertain notions: a) What are the tolerances for deviations from expected norms? An example is a chair. You can take into account its structural integrity as a chair. Can it hold itself together? Good. But is it done? It’s not. How will it be used? In a place with gravity. Can it support its own structure against gravity? Great! But what about other outside forces? How much weigh can it support when sitting properly? 400 lb limit before breaking? Good. Now you have a tolerance established. No more than 400lb from sitting properly. But, what if a person “plops” in the chair? That can be more than 400 lbs even from a much lighten person. It will break. So, failure is possible. What about twisting? Can it withstand torque? What about affordances? [how many ways to use a chair]. Can it be stood upon? What if you use a seat material designed solely for the spread distribution of a human butt? Can it handle feet standing on it? Canvas chairs for example can tear if you stand on them. So, this is how my brain works.
