I find myself smiling as I browse and read your stuff--thanks for linking me!
The name of Hannes Alfven, Swedish Nobel Prize winner came to mind as I read what you said about plasma:
| Plasma |
The fourth state of matter above gas is plasma. Plasma is ionized gas. It is gas that is superheated to the point some of its electrons break away from their nuclei and join other nuclei. The gas molecules are in an unstable state and therefore behave in a haphazard and unpredictable manner. Stars are made of plasma Fire is plasma.
It is powerful, dangerous and attractive at the same time.

Alfven believed in an infinite, expanding "plasma universe
," rather than a "Big Bang," i.e., something out of nothing.
I think of feeling as plasma
, and beam as coherent thought
. Thought is condensed from feeling. "There is greatest amount of chaos right before order," as you said.
Maybe the Bose-Einstein Condensate is the ether/Enchanted Loom/Seat of the Soul
? My friend Nick says that Black Holes are deep wells of consciousness, which, of course, is what the Galactic Center is, I believe.

The British psychiatrist Ian Marshall ("Consciousness and Bose-Einstein condensates", 1989) showed similarities between the holistic properties of condensates and those of consciousness, and suggested that consciousness may arise from the "excitation" of such a Bose-Einstein condensate.
In Marshall's hypothesis, the brain contains a Froehlich-style condensate, and, whenever the condensate is excited by an electrical field, conscious experience occurs.
The brain maintains dynamical coherence (i.e., the ability to organize millions of neural processes into the coherent whole of thought) thanks to an underlying quantum coherent state (the Bose-Einstein condensate).

I used to live next door to Eric Cornell, one of the 2001 Nobel Prize winners for the Bose-Einstein Condensate.
