The Cosmology of Light has been constructed by imagining light to exist at multiple constant speeds simultaneously. The starting point of this exploration, simply, is why does light travel at the constant speed of c? And the answer, from a Cosmology of Light perspective, is that this is intentional. It is required so that our cosmos would emerge in the way that it has, with the possibilities resident within it. These are themes I have explored in three different ways over the last few years, and it has surfaced unique interpretations and approaches to a vast range of subjects from the meaning of quanta, to the significance of Euler’s Identity, to the design of a different type of quantum computer, to the future of technology development, to light as being a pillar in a Forbes’ organizational sciences certification program, to approaches to World Peace, amongst many others.

But here I want to begin a short series as it relates to mythology. A Cosmology of Light offers a view into some of the most basic questions encapsulated by any mythology — how did creation begin, what is its purpose, what is good and what is evil, why is the human condition the way it is, and so on — of course, all presented through story. Through going deeper into the nature and play of light there is a whole genre of stories, a whole mythology, that can arise. This is what I seek to tease out in this series.

I am not going to get into the creation of stories based on light. Instead, I am going to focus on kernels that can serve as the basis for endless stories based on viewing light as I have in a Cosmology of Light.

I invite you to follow this series, and if you feel so inspired to reach out to even collaborate in beginning to express the Mythology that arises from a Cosmology of Light.
