What is a thing?
A thing is what it does. Doing is a function that results in a process. A function/process happens as a series of individual (i.e. 1 : 1) contacts.
Contact happens in a relativity vacuum, hence as a 1c2 moment. A 1c2 moment can be understood as a real bit, that is to say, as a bit of hardware. The bits (i.e. the 1c’s, i.e. 1 @ momentum c) that make contact are virtual, meaning unreal, until they make contact and become real (i.e. reified as 1c2). For real (as in hardware @c2) understand true (because non-relative ≈ absolute).
A thing is a stopped (or blocked or halted or decided). therefore quantised process. That means that a whole process (or series of 1c bits) when stopped by an alternate series of 1c bits) is processed (i.e. responded to) as a single whole or unit (hence as a fixed, i.e. finite, thus a quantum). A quantised process (or series of bits) can be understood as a bite.
In short, a simple ‘thing’ (i.e. a bit of hardware resulting from contact of 2 X1c bits) is defined as a 1c2 moment (hence as a quantum of realness. A complex thing (i.e. having more than one bit, hence mass) is defined as 1mc2. When the momentum of a real complex bit (i.e. 1mc2) is turned into energy the equations that results is:
Contact that makes real (and is experienced as hardware), hence that ‘is’, is always absolute (hence true), albeit momentary.
The upshot of the above is that ‘I am (real) what I do (i.e. what I contact and thereby make real)’.
Note: a 1c bit (or a 1mc bit) is perfect but incomplete. A 1c2 bit (or a 1mc2 bite) is both perfect and complete ….. for a moment. To maintain perfection and completion requires a (possibly unending or abiding, so the Buddha) series (or process) of differential @c contacts.
The default setting of my Bio-nav (i.e. my brain as blind auto-pilot) is to compute and decide the best possible option (i.e. with the greatest survival probability) for doing (i.e. for taking the next step). Hence I am right now my true self because I am now the best possible outcome of a past series of best possible (read: Darwin’s ‘fittest’) choices.
It follows that I’m a winner (for a moment) and feel happy (for a moment) if I win (for a moment) and feel happy (for a moment). And I’m a loser (for a moment) and feel unhappy (for a moment) if I lose (for a moment) and feel unhappy (for a moment).
And I’m a winner if I make (differential) contact (and become real and identifiable) that is to say, if and when I arrive (i.e. achieve, close, complete (or fulfil) my journey to contact). And I’m a loser if I fail to make contact (and so remain unreal and unidentifiable) that is to say, when I fail to arrive (i.e. to complete (or fulfil) me journey).
Bluntly put, my Bio-Nav fires the happiness signal if and when I arrive (i.e. become either complete). It fires the unhappiness signal if I don’t arrive (i.e. if I fail to complete). Where I arrive (i.e. the content of the outcome) is irrelevant.
Hence the ancient Irish adage:
‘The Right Way is to land’
