*The story so far, observed from my reference frame...*

# Meta

i.) intrinsic creative process: existence of something, structure formation (universe, life, mind); process inherent in our consciousness

ii.) physical reality finite: space, time, the universe, ...

iii.) time = interaction; time only exists for matter

iv.) universe as a computation

v.) quanta as a bits

vi.) consilience

vii.) many worlds: every possibility exists

viii.) consciousness conserved

ix.) universality, unity, interconnectedness

conjecture: i.) + iv.) => "we invent it as we go along"

# Observation

i.) c = cst

ii.) radiation quantized

iii.) human observer integral part of quantum mechanics (observer paradox)

iv.) fundamental reality can be coded into formal systems (covariance, invariance)

v.) computational/algorithmic approach to complexity: simple rules complex behavior

vi.) the human mind develops formal systems and blueprints for human technology to build computers

vii.) paradoxes: in formal systems, quantum realm, time not fundamental, interpretation of quantum mechanics

viii.) quantum realm: intrinsically random

ix.) no objective reality

nb: vi.), iv.), v.) sound like: "reality wants us to understand it" or "the workings of reality are coded into our minds"

--> "our minds code the workings of reality"

# Ingredients

0.) mathematical models

i.) graph theory

ii.) knot theory

iii.) category theory

iv.) information theory

v.) loop quantum gravity

vi.) m theory

vii.) agent based models

viii.) complexity theory

ix.) systems theory
