# The Doorway and Possibilities in a Cosmology of Light

A Cosmology of Light *[1]* arises when we consider the simultaneous and interpenetrating realities created were Light to exist at multiple constant speeds simultaneously.

In our attempts to fathom the reality of existence we usually do not see outside of where we are focused, continue to give massive weight to assumptions that were perhaps once true, and feel secure that all findings of Science will remain true forever. But the Cosmos is a Poem and any device that may have given us a view into some aspect of its eternal mystery has to be treated as temporary only, and modified or even cast aside when deeper rhythms and lights beckon.

The Cosmology of Light introduced here is an extended inquiry into the nature of light. The doorway into this inquiry is simple: why does light have a constant speed? The inquiry leads to a broader understanding of Light and its central place in the universe. It is as though its constancy becomes a medium in which all other inconstancies and variations and even forms of itself can exist, because they are anchored, as it were, in something that is unchanging.

The Cosmology of Light introduced here is an extended inquiry into the nature of light. The doorway into this inquiry is simple:

why does light have a constant speed?

In our physical universe light travels at a constant speed referred to as ‘c’, of 186,000 miles per second in vacuum. This we know has a concrete bearing on how we experience time and space, and on how matter arises, and in a Cosmology of Light it can be said that *light at c is an intentionality to filter infinite potentiality from Light’s native state of traveling infinitely fast, so life can arise in a particular way.*

If light were imagined to travel infinitely fast this would suggest another reality packed with infinite possibility due to Light’s omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, and omninurturing fourfoldness *[2]*: omnipresent, because Light would be instantaneously present in whatever volume considered; omnipotent, because anything not of the nature of light will be overcome by it; omniscient, because light being everywhere will know what arises or disappears in it; omninurturing, because all would exist in one nature and be bound by it.

Similarly, light at different constant speeds is suggested to create different realities.

Note that there have been multiple views on the variable speed of light, with the most radical magnitude of order change in the speed of light suggested in Variable Speed of Light (VSL) Cosmology *[3]* and envisioned to exist in the very early universe. By contrast the Cosmology of Light view introduced here imagines light to exist at multiple constant speeds simultaneously, and at speeds far above the speed as envisioned in VSL.

Further, a Cosmology of Light was also suggested by Robert Grosseteste *[4]* about 800 years ago where he linked spiritual light to physical light. The contemporary vision of a Cosmology of Light perhaps elaborates such a connection between spiritual light and physical light by linking light traveling at different constant speeds, and articulating this multi-dimensional light-superstructure mathematically, in a 6-book Cosmology of Light series and a follow-up 4-book Applications in Cosmology of Light series.

The contemporary vision of a Cosmology of Light perhaps elaborates such a connection between spiritual light and physical light by linking light traveling at different constant speeds, and articulating this multi-dimensional light-superstructure mathematically.

The dynamics and information resident in each of these simultaneous realities is arbitrated into material reality through a constant and persistent quantum-level computation *[5]* that generates genetic-type information that effectively becomes “law”. *Quanta in such a cosmology is perceived as being the mechanism by which information in faster-moving layers of light is materialized in a slower-moving layer of light*.

The resulting creative view of computation *[6]* is in contrast to the contemporary binary-based *constructive* view of computation that simply ‘constructs’ based on regurgitating instruction worked out or envisioned in some mind-based process. The constructive view is typical to digital computing, and has heavily influenced contemporary models of quantum computation in that what is considered possible is heavily anchored in the constructive paradigm.

Such a Cosmology of Light hence offers a more comprehensive mathematical model of Light, an alternative interpretation of quanta, a constructive view of computation, and a deeper understanding of the origin and possibilities of genetics *[7]*. Note that the fundamental notion of quantum uncertainty is replaced by qualified determinism *[8]*, even at the quantum level, and gives rise to the alternative notion of quantum certainty *[9]*.

These alternative interpretations and subsequent insights into possibilities of quanta and genetics in a Cosmology of Light also clarifies, mathematically, the limits of Artificial Intelligence *[10]* which is based on the constructive view of computation. Such a view of computation is destined to limits since it is fundamentally fragmented from the underlying and unitary light-based edifice true in a Cosmology of Light. The creative view of computation is creative, because it is linked with antecedent layers of light and can arbitrate possibility into material existence.

Transhumanism itself in its current conceptualization is at best heavily based on existing quantum-, genetics-, and AI-based technologies. But the existing and ongoing play of Light manifest as a series of quadrumvirate mechanisms such as space-time-energy-gravity, the electro-magnetic-wavearchetype-masspotential spectrum, quark-lepton-boson-Higgsboson particles, ‘s’shell-‘p’shell’-‘d’shell-‘f’shell atoms, nucleicacid-lipid-protein-polysaccharide cells, amongst many other mechanisms, derive their ability to “become” based on the native “being” of Light’s omnipresent-omnipotent-omniscient-omninurturing fourfoldness *[11] *and point to an alternative light-based basis of transhumanism.

The simple question as to why light travels at c, hence, can reveal the wonder and fullness that Light is, and provide a glimpse of unthought technological and other possibilities that can result from a deeper understanding of a Cosmology of Light.
