Novel View

Novel View is a physico-cosmic, phenomological model conceived from a subtle, dynamic interpretation of the behaviors of cosmological energy density and pressure, the known and most pervasive characteristics of space. In Novel View, they are understood to be formless, timeless yet real precursors to all mass and energy. As an extension of Novel View's complex relational behaviors, it is understood too that the structure and structuring of existence cannot be adequately understood relying, as modern physics does, on force-based logic alone.

The continuity of combining Novel View and ONT guarantees that the universe is realistically and meaningfully self-evident.

I developed Novel View in the early 2000's and documented it in an academically-styled paper. I eventually though reluctantly accepted that the academic field of theoretical physics would be slow, perhaps even completely unwilling, to thoughtfully evaluate my work. For the second time in my life (the first being when I ventured unexpectedly into theoretical physics theory from complex systems) I found solace and inspiration in widening the scope of my inquiries, getting interdisciplinary again. Among other things I found religious history, psychology, and spirituality, as well as fiction-writing.

In October 2016 I revisited Novel View in a paper published in the natural philosophy journal Cosmos & History. In that work I frame Novel View in relation to the current crisis in physics. I also cite extensively from a metaphysically complementary, though on its own fatally solipsistic, view known as CTMU. Here's a summary of that paper, "Notes from the existential underground: the universe as a complex emergent system."

Between my many years immersed in an academic career in the biological sciences and unrequited efforts to articulate my physico-cosmic insights to skeptical academics, I found my own voice resounded most within rational and intellectual humility. Other of my Marvelous Miscellany writings here point to efforts in that regard.
