Reality Cells – Disambiguation
This page is about the Reality Cells of the Larger Consciousness System or LCS. It is not about the PMR Space/Time Reality Cells which Tom Campbell also describes in My Big TOE and which he describes in a greatly different way from the Reality Cells of Consciousness Space.
The Concept of Reality Cells as Fundamental to Consciousness Space
These Reality Cells are the basic reality cells as described in Tom Campbell's model of Reality. These are the base and fundamental building block of this concept of reality as Consciousness and specifically of the LCS as described as a Cellular Automaton. They are undefined as not being made of anything more fundamental than themselves as there is nothing more fundamental than they are. They are the fundamental building blocks of Reality as Consciousness Space and Consciousness. They are the fundamental containers of the data of the LCS which constitutes both the subject of Consciousness and the digital computer code, in effect, which manipulates that data and produces Consciousness. This is stipulated as being in the nature of the reality cells being either perturbed and thus containing data or unperturbed and not containing data. We thus have a digital yes/no representation that can be equated to the binary 1 and 0.
These Reality Cells spontaneously came into existence with the Quickening or activation of the Void as the beginning of all of Reality. This is the same Void as experienced by mystics and metaphysicians of all times and of all religions or other origins. They are not a part of the usual experience of the Void which is exemplified by emptiness and boundlessness and without content yet is in general recognized as the beginning and container of everything. Much discussion and variety of explanation has developed over millenia but these aspects described can be seen as basic and inherent to all viewpoints.
Reality Cells Acting Out the Primary Process of Evolution
These reality cells, containing data as being perturbed react with adjacent cells according to a fixed rule set, just as a Cellular Automaton does. These cells and their data interact according to the Primary Process of Evolution as described by Tom Campbell. We, as we exist as Individuated Units Of Consciousness or IUOCs have no access to these reality cells as we are or exist as in fact, just such reality cells and their data. There is no mirror to look at our selves in Consciousness Space nor have we eyes. These reality cells and their rule set for interaction, are entirely an element of Tom Campbell's model of reality, unobservable to us. They are however a modeling element that fills the model with elements that can explain the change from the Void of universal mystical experience through the quickened void of mystical experience through Indra's Net of ancient mystical experience and metaphysics. These latter elements are aspects of Tom Campbell's model which I, Ted Vollers, personally vouch for as having experienced, not as by 'sight' or other PMR sense but during meditation as no doubt has Tom Campbell who may have likewise experienced the reality cells in his own experience. Such experience is a matter of the assistance of the LCS.
Reality Cells as Real Things, Not an Abstract Concept
These reality cells are a property of our Ultimate Reality, appearing and existing as needed to contain the data that makes up the LCS as it grows. Their number or non-physical extent is unbounded but not however said to be infinite. Infinity is a mathematical abstract of PMR while the reality cells are real, their existence as part of the Void and its Quickening have thus existed and appeared in the minds of mystics and metaphysicians for as long as we have unwritten records handed down before the advent of written records.
