Particles, Waves, Sets

My favorite person, The Count on Sesame Street, once hosted a program whose main theme was that "This Universe Has Been Brought To You By The Number 3." This universe essentially consists of particles, waves and sets. You and I are particles dashing here and there and bumping into each other like one big Brownian movement. The wave part of the universe is the statistical and can only be analyzed statistically . Men and women may have individual adventures, but statistically speaking we essentially do the same things. That is why comics are so successful at making us laugh because we all instinctively recognize our stereotypical existence. That is also why people get all hot and bothered over being portrayed culturally or nationally as stereotypes. That is why the current movie Borat is so successful. Suffering, happiness, sadness etc. are all particles in a wave called emotion. If you and I weren’t emotional love wouldn’t exist. God would be even more meaningless than she is to most of us right now. Our mind creates thought which generates emotion, reality and illusion. Sets are primarily collections of particles that have a relationship. Business, friends, lovers, events, other generalized circumstances are all examples of sets. We all have to have memory because if we didn’t we couldn’t function in three dimensions. If we couldn’t remember, how would we know what is water and what is hydrochloric acid? Alzheimer’s is an example of what happens if you don’t have memory. Memory is your and my database. Mind is our CPU. Thought is our algorithms. Emotion is hard to quantify. Robots can simulate emotion and if memory is added than they know how to treat you based on a database of your responses to their existence. Just like you and I do to each other!!! Emotion, to me, is our link with our Soul and to God. If we weren’t emotional we wouldn’t be aware of God. God appeals to us on an emotional level. Man has corrupted God into a set of rules which if followed will supposedly bring you salvation. Good luck on that one!!! Everything that comes to us we try to define or attempt to label because in order to function effectively, individually, collectively or relationally we have to have a system of communication or explanation that is consistent with emotion, reality and illusion. That is why we have language and that is why it evolves. If you don’t believe me, try writing down and explaining something that another person says whose language gives you no clues!!! Anyway, start thinking in terms of 3’s and you will find that this universe, excluding God’s involvement in the affairs of you and I, has been constructed on and is being run by the number 3!!!!
