The Fractal Structure of Time

Cycle of TimeTime manifests as a fractal structure. The smallest unit of time is also the smallest unit of matter. Every atom has a frequency, a cyclic tone that represents one unit of time. Each cycle or unit of time takes input compares it to memory and outputs the result. This memory is not a static pattern, but is dynamic, vibrating in sync with the environmental variables. If the pattern of the input matches the pattern stored in memory, the field doesn’t react, it continues to vibrate normally, but if the input doesn’t match what is anticipated by memory, a perturbence is created in the field. Like a stone pitched in a pond, the waves spread out through the system, carrying information about the mismatch to all points. Not only is the location of the mismatch clearly stated by the arc of the wave, but the “shape” of the mismatch is carried by the shape of the wave. In this way, the whole keeps track of its units in real time.

What makes time a fractal is that this cycle of input, comparison and output is repeated throughout biological systems, regardless of scale or implementation. All cells, organs, creatures, social organizations and ecosystems, use this fundamental process to interact with their environment. The fundamental vibrations are in harmony from atoms all the way up to galaxies and beyond.

    • Hey Mondo, good to hear from ya… Yeah, still at it, but been taking some time away to build a new computer. We hit 70 yesterday, supposed to snow tonight. Life is good! Hope the same for you and yours.

      • Things are good here too. Been a warm dry winter, compared to last. 70 and then snow? That’s some extremes!

        I’ll be reading through your blog here. I had been reading but then it seemed like you took a hiatus or something, and I lost the bookmark. Always easy to find again, given there are certain search terms that always work. Your Hot Guano site in disrepair these days?

        Best of wishes ..

  3. Snowed all day yesterday and some last night… pretty! They say we will be back to 70s by Saturday.

    You know me, after awhile i get tired of hunching over these machines and i take off. My sweetheart is retired as well now, so we spend more quality time in the yard. I have just decided to go the other way for awhile and i’m preparing a animation/video onslaught for youtube and beyond. So i bought some cool stuff and i’m building my dream computer. When its done i’ll be able to watch some of the cool stuff my friends are cranking out as well as add some of my own. Some of it will be from the old hot guano site. Geocities shut down but this other outfit revived it in’09.
    It still gets a good number of hits.

    I am stoked and it feels good. =-)

    So, what are you up to these days? I see you are still hanging out at network 54. Has that crowd mellowed out some? =-)

    • That’s some crazy swings in weather. Keep me posted about the Youtube stuff. Yep, you sound stoked. 🙂

      N54, some have mellowed, some not. Many are not around. It’s a dwindling crowd.

      Yeah, I checked out your HotGuano site before coming here. It looks like it hasn’t been updated in a bit. Glad to see it is around. That’s where we first met.

  4. Heya. Nice ideas. Do you have an explanation for how motion is fractal? Without motion conditions would not change. Without motion how would time exist?

    Comment by autogene — August 10, 2012 @ 11:11 am

    • Sure. That makes for a good example. We tend to think of motion as the movement of objects, but we also know that objects are not really solid. They are made up of waves and fields that appear solid, but are mostly space. What gives them their apparent solidity is their internal motion. So when an object moves it is really these fields that move and they can only move in waves. So every movement of matter is made up of a hierarchy of movements that include the largest and smallest of orbits, creating a structure that looks very fractal to me. So movement and time itself are identical at this level. Neither time nor movement happen in a straight line.
