A Frequency Ratio Account of Temporal Atomism2
Finite Eventism gives the philosophy of science of Russell and Whitehead’s event ontology. The concluding section gives an account of the mind-brain interaction sequence by treating the brain and its “dominant monad” as a purely sequential formation, or causal set.
Causal Set Theory and the Origin of Mass-ratio
Quantum theory is reconstructed using standalone causal sets. The frequency ratios inherent in causal sets are used to define energy-ratios, implicating the causal link as the quantum of action. Space-time and its particle-like sequences are then constructed from causal links. A 4-D time-lattice pattern is defined and used to model neutrinos and electron clouds, which together constitute our 4-D manifold. A 6-D time-lattice is used to model the nucleons. The integration of the nucleus with its electron cloud allows calculation of the mass-ratio of the proton (or the neutron) with respect to the electron. Arrow diagrams, along with several ball-and-stick models, are used to streamline the presentation.
The Adequacy of Language for Finite Domains of Reference — This paper summarizes the logic and language underpinning the reduction of physics to temporal succession. It was written for a Whitehead conference held in Salzburg in 2006.
Whitehead and the Reduction of Matter to Mind is an informal paper focused on Whitehead’s panpsychism of occasions of experience engaged in temporal/causal succession to form the physical universe.
