Music of the Spheres

Johannes updated



TUCSON (A-P) — Our grasp of Kepler's vision of the spheres, the planets, may be too limited to hear the music in our mind's ear. There are spheres other than those planets form—systems of subsystems:

  1. Unosphere: Existence, reality (quantum and hadronic, energy and matter), aka Nature, the universe—of which we know little more than that it exists, the 10% bit we call the visible universe.
    1. Spaciotemposphere: Deep space between and containing galaxies.
      1. Spaciosphere: Three dimensional space, finite yet unbounded.
      2. Temposphere: Time, starting 13.8 billion years ago.
    2. Galactospheres: Galaxies, clustered, about 2 trillion.
      1. Interstellospheres: Space containing stars forming galaxies.
      2. Blackospheres: If the unosphere was created, perhaps it was to make blackholes.
      3. Solarspheres: Solar systems, maybe 10e23.
        1. Astrosphere: Swarm of bodies that do not clear their orbit by sweeping up other bodies.

          • Comets
          • Dwarf planets
        2. Planetospheres: Planets, perhaps more than there are solarspheres, each of which have environment and power. Planets are energized. Not all have all possible subsystems.
          1. Energysphere: Power energizing a planet.

  2. Multispheres: Other unospheres—conjectured, unverifiable, may be part of supersphere.
  3. Supersphere: Non-existence, the supernatural, the unreal, an artifact of concept forming mind.



Note: The above is not a conceptology, but an attempt to parse the "what-is" as is. Galaxies are, solar systems are, planets are, social control systems are... The unosphere is the One, everything else is the Many as the mind parses it. The politicoreligiosphere is not the study of politics and organized religion (politicology), but references the control system in a society that may pursue peace or wage war to commit empire building with or without anyone thinking about it. Ecolacy includes the study of social control systems based on an ecocentric understanding of natural law rather than humancentric politics or religion-as-usual. All concepts, all "studies of" are part of the information sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-subsystem, the highest to be valued product of human endeavor (not the Pyramids,... —not even smartphones or cars). The deeper down the subsystem, the more difficult and rarer. Note that eco-nomics (biophysical economics) and politicology, the deepest level, are among the least fully-formed sciences (most in need of new concepts/names) as objective understanding of these areas requires the greatest freedom form self-interest and the ideological narratives that dominate the chatosphere. Systems science is the last, the climax science that unifies all the others, the conceptual macroscope that illuminates all the focused views of special interest. Today's SYSTEM serving social narratives (ideologically tainted) within academia (e.g. postmodernism, neoclassical economics) will not be listed; sufficient to note that at 17th century Oxford, theology (also not listed) was a SYSTEM serving social narrative, though at the time few, with the possible exception of a court jester, could openly say so.
