Algebraic Brahman=Atman Identity and Algebraic Holography

I made a conference travel to Hungary. Despite the usual panick attack and socioparalysis I came back to home with head full of new ideas and the discussions with participants still continuing were very inspiring. In the following I want to comment a boost on one of the big ideas of TGD which emerged from discussions with Istvan Dienes and Alex Hankey. The TGD based view about how fermions and bosons serve as correlates of cognition and intentionality, which I have discussed already earlier, emerges from the notion of infinite primes (see this and this), which was actually the first genuinely new mathematical idea inspired by TGD inspired consciousness theorizing.

Infinite primes, integers, and rationals have a precise number theoretic anatomy. For instance, the simplest infinite primes corresponds to the numbers P+/-= X+/- 1, where X=∏kpk is the product of all finite primes. Indeed, P+/-mod p=1 holds true for all finite primes.

The construction of infinite primes at the first level of the hierarchy is structurally analogous to the quantization of super-symmetric arithmetic quantum field theory with finite primes playing the role of momenta associated with fermions and bosons. Also the counterparts of bound states emerge. This process can be iterated: at the second level the product of infinite primes constructed at the first level replaces X and so on.

The structural similarity with repeatedly second quantized quantum field theory suggests that physics might in some sense reduce to a number theory for infinite rationals M/N and that second quantization could be followed by further quantizations. As a matter fact, the hierarchy of space-time sheets could realize this endless second quantization geometrically and have also a direct connection with the hierarchy of logics labelled by their order. This could have rather breathtaking implications.

  • Could this hierarchy correspond to a hierarchy of realities for which level below corresponds in a literal sense infinitesimals and the level next above to infinity?
  • There is an infinite number of infinite rationals behaving like real units (M/N=1 in real sense) so that space-time points could have infinitely rich number theoretical anatomy not detectable at the level of real physics. Infinite integers would correspond to positive energy many particle states and their inverses (infinitesimals with number theoretic structure) to negative energy many particle states and M/N= 1 would be a counterpart for zero energy ontology to which oneness and emptiness are assigned in mysticism.

  • Single space-time point, which is usually regarded as the most primitive and completely irreducible structure of mathematics, would take the role of Platonia of mathematical ideas being able to represent in its number theoretical structure even the quantum state of entire Universe. Algebraic Brahman=Atman identity and algebraic holography would be realized in a rather literal sense .

This number theoretical anatomy should relate to mathematical consciousness in some manner. For instance, one can ask whether it makes sense to speak about quantum jumps changing the number theoretical anatomy of space-time points and whether these quantum jumps give rise to mathematical ideas. In fact, the identifications of Platonia as spinor fields in WCW (world of classical worlds) on one hand,and as the set number theoretical anatomies of point of imbedding space on the other hand, force the conclusion that configuration space spinor fields (recall also the identification as correlates for logical mind) can be realized in terms of the space for number theoretic anatomies of imbedding space points.

Therefore quantum jumps would correspond to changes in the anatomy of the space-time points. Imbedding space would be experiencing genuine number theoretical evolution. Physics would reduce to the anatomy of numbers. All mathematical notions which are more than mere human inventions would be imbeddable to the Platonia realized as the number theoretical anatomies of single imbedding space point.

This picture give also a justification for the decomposition of WCW to a union of WCW:s associated with imbedding spaces with preferred point (tip of the lightcone and point of CP2 fixing U(2) subgroup as isotropy group). Given point of space-time would provide representation for the spinors fields in WCW associated with the future and/or past light-cone at this point. The "big bang" singularity would code all the information about the quantum state of this particular sub-universe in its number theoretical anatomy.

Interestingly, this picture can be deduced by taking into extreme quantum-classical correspondence and by requiring that both configuration space and configuration space spinor fields have not only space-time correlates but representation at the level of space-time: the only reasonable identification is in terms of algebraic structure of space-time point.
