The End Of The World We Thought We Knew

Unambiguous empirical evidence has confirmed how we perceive reality is a complete contradiction of the natural world. SInce the findings are universal and absolute, they are not subject to philosophical opinions, beliefs (including my own), or theory. As you will read, the end of the world we thought we knew has arrived.

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Manuel Morales. I have created artwork for the US Olympic Committee, magazines, book covers, advertisements, private commissions, and most notably in support of the NY Giants SB XXI and SB XXV quests. Each time I did this they went on to win, a 2-for-2 record. This history was documented and licensed by the NFL as the NY Giants Super Bowl Commemorative Series (see link). Nearly a decade later, the artwork served as a catalyst to conduct an online experiment which began in 2000 and ended in 2012. The objective of this experiment at was to see if football fans and I could "tempt destiny" to repeat what was done twice before and in the process confirm if destiny, i.e., all events are predetermined, was true or not. The unambiguous empirical evidence has confirmed:

There are two mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive predetermined mechanisms that cause the existence of all physical effects (including you - see thought experiment below). What is predetermined in nature is 'how' the effect/existence of an event comes-to-exist.

In order to understand the findings of the Tempt Destiny experiment, it is necessary to understand - "How do we know what we think we know?"

In science, we use the existence of scale (being) as the cause of the existence of scale to gain knowledge of the natural world. See - "Scale of the Universe" image.

In religion, we use the existence of a deity or deities (being) as the cause of the existence universe.

In essence, both paradigms use the logic that existence, either physical or spiritual, begets existence, i.e., effects of existence cause effects of existence. This effectual logic allows us to think that effects are self-causal by placing cause second to effect. For example, in science it is believed that the existence of an elementary particle (Higgs boson) caused the existence of the universe. In religion, it is believed that the existence of a spiritual being or beings caused the existence of the universe. However, unambiguous empirical evidence obtained by conducting the twelve year Tempt Destiny Experiment has shown that there are two mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive mechanisms that are the origins of existence. Since these mechanisms are predetermined universal functions, everyone can indirectly challenge the empirical evidence by conducting the Final Selection Thought Experiment as a thought experiment or directly challenge the empirical evidence by conducting the experiment in real life as follows:

TEST NATURE'S LAWS - If the two acts of selection are effects of our physical existence, i.e., cognition, then anyone can safely conduct the thought experiment in real life and continue to live. If the two acts of selection are the cause of our physical existence (being) then no one can conduct the thought experiment in real life and continue to live.

TEST GOD THEORIES - If there is a God (supreme being or deities) then the two acts of selection can not govern our existence which means that everyone can conduct the thought experiment in real life and continue their God given existence. If no one can continue their existence without the two acts of selection, then a God or deities did not give rise or govern our existence which means that God theories are false since a supreme being or deities cannot be inferior to anything else in order to be a God.

Final Selection Thought Experiment:

Let's say that one morning upon awakening you find yourself completely paralyzed absent of the ability to select. This means you cannot choose to move your body whatsoever. You cannot choose to take in any fluids. You cannot choose to take in any nourishment. You cannot choose to relieve yourself, et cetera. Nor can you have others indirectly choose for you. The outcome is absolute. The predetermined effect of a physical system to no longer have the capacity to make a direct selection is certain death.

As can be confirmed by all via the thought experiment, the acts of selection are not effects of cognition. They are the origin mechanisms of our existence. This is why we have the ability to choose because we do not have the option to not choose in order to exist. The unambiguous empirical evidence has confirmed, the two mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive acts of selection, what we call choice, are actually predetermined fundamental universal laws necessary for existence.

To date, the logic or reasoning mankind has used to make sense of our existence and the universe we live in is that states of existence (beings) cause other states of existence (beings), e.g., the existence of a God or elementary particle caused the existence of the universe. If such rational is indeed correct of the fundamental function of nature, i.e., effects cause effects, then such logic can answer the following question:

How much does a direct or indirect selection weigh, what are their scales, and where was the mutually exclusive selection variable you used to read these words located when you used it?

What this means is that our very own existence confirms that direct selection and indirect selection are not philosophical options or trivial functions of our physical existence. Since we cannot argue with the nature of our existence, why continue or pretend to do so? If we are to advance as a species, we need to accept nature's laws on its terms, not how we insist nature should be understood.



ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the findings obtained from the Tempt Destiny experiment, I was invited to be a speaker at a Theoretical and Condensed Matter Physics conference in New York City (see link to the "Theoretical Physics" section) on October 19, 2017. In the presentation, I showed how the two acts of selection relates to the origin of DNA's double helix structure and suggest how we can use this new insight to advance science. (more news to come)

So how did this all come about you may wonder? I have been writing a book (see book summary) about what took place, how I was able to make sense of the unambiguous empirical evidence, its implications, its applications, and where do we go from here. The following chapter summaries lightly touch upon what is being covered in the book without giving away the spicy stuff. If you would like to be notified of how to get a copy of the book when it becomes available please send an Email Notification Request

Theoretical physicists John S. Bell once predicted, "The only alternative to quantum probabilities, superpositions of states, collapse of the wave function, and spooky action at a distance, is that everything is superdetermined. For me it is a dilemma. I think it is a deep dilemma, and the resolution of it will not be trivial; it will require a substantial change in the way we look at things."

BTW - Did you see me on this "This Bud's For You" Budweiser commercial from 1984-1985 airbrushing a flying Clydesdale onto a van (back in the days of Manny's Murals). Who would have thought that creating art would have led to this?
