Emission Theory

Until relatively recently, there were two camps of people when it came to eyesight: extramission and intromission. Those who believed in extramission believed that light rays exited the eyes causing sight, and those who believed in intromission believed that sight was the result of light entering the eyes.

First held by Empedocles, extramission theory was held by Plato, Euclid, Ptolemy, and even Da Vinci. I say this to say: this theory was not just passing idea. Some of the greatest thinkers in history held that it was true.

Of course, that doesn’t make it true. To me, that just makes it worth exploring.

My theory is not exactly the same as these thinkers. I am not proposing that we see by emanating rays from our eyes. I am just proposing that, under certain conditions, the eyes can emanate light.

Why do I think this? Because I think it helps explain some of the strangest unsolved mysteries of science: Why some animals have slanted pupils, Why birds crash into glass, How birds navigate, and why some people can feel eye contact.

I think these reasons in tandem makes a strong case. And lastly, I propose that you test for yourself in Smell with Your Eyes. Because I think that if you can experience it for yourself, you may just believe it too.

C-theory of Time

If time exists inside our universe, and passes as it appears to pass, A-theory of time is true.  If a reality exists outside of spacetime, time is only an illusion. From this perspective, our past, present, and future happen at the same time.

So if we call the extraverse, our universe plus any reality removed from spacetime, we have two different theories of time alive in the same system. Inside the universe we have A-theory of time, and outside the universe we have (looking at the universe) B-theory of time.

C theory of time

So this is what I call C-theory of Time: A-theory in our universe, and B-theory of time observing our universe from the exterior perspective. Time is real inside spacetime but illusory outside of it.

 

 

Deja Vu Revisited

Not long ago, I presented a theory about how deja vu could prove that a personal and omniscient god exists. This theory does a little more, though.

If two-thirds of people experience deja vu, that means that essentially each person has either had a personal experience with God, or knows someone that has. Which essentially solve the problem of divine hiddenness. Because if every person either had a religious experience or knew someone that had, the problem of divine hiddenness is not a problem at all.

Multiple Personality Theory

Let’s say that your life hinges on three events. These three major events shape your entire life. But what if your view of each event changed periodically. Whether it was good or bad. In hindsight, you create different realities. You reshape your current reality based on your view of these three events. But if the impact of these events changes, you change.

Let’s just say that your events have only one quality: good or bad. With three events, each has two different states. So that you have eight different potential states of your current self based on your views of these events.

If if you have eight different potential present selves, you have eight personalities.

If this theory is correct, the key to overcoming the disease would be an objective view of all three events. The truth to whether each event was either good or bad. That is the true self.

The Mighty UV: Birds Use Ultraviolet Emission to Navigate

There are good reasons why birds fly in a “V” pattern. But how do they do it? 

With our Seventh Sense theory, most animals have the ability to emit ultraviolet rays. But we know that birds can see in ultraviolet. So if they can see in ultraviolet, that means they should be able to see other birds 7th Sense. It’s essentially gaze detection on steroids.

Why do I think this is true? Personal experience. When I was incapacitated with anxiety, I noticed something else that was strange: birds would fly in front of my car. I know what you’re thinking: so what, that happens to everyone. Let’s just say it wasn’t uncommon for ten birds to fly in front of my car in a five minute span. Naturally, I began to ask myself if I was possibly causing this. But if I can emit UV rays, they would be able to see them.

If birds can see these UV rays, can they use them to stay in line on these long flights?

I think so. If you use the lead bird as a reference point, each subsequent bird locks one eye on the bird in front of them, and the other on the path ahead. Birds eyes are fixed, but this sense is not. With this UV gridlock pattern, the birds can easily stay in their lanes, and check to see if someone is off course. Imagine me holding a laser pointer telling you where to stand for a hike. It makes it super simple. Not only that, it helps explain the precision in which they do it. 

In a “V”, the birds maximize aerodynamics and visibility, using their seventh sense of UV detection and emission to align their formations with precision.
