16.10. Fields and interference

Fields and interference help to create the dynamics that shape the universe.

We've talked a lot about fields because physics talks about fields. A field can be considered a set of rules that set the premises and affects something.

In physics, one hopes one day to find something material, or at least measurable, that the fields are made of. In our theory, fields are abstractions.

Like physics, our idealistic way of thinking opens up to every conceivable field type.

The electromagnetic field are rules that apply to photons, electrons, magnetism, etc. No matter where a photon may be, the field rules can tell exactly what the properties and situation are right there.

But one can also, for example, talk about a «field for Norway», i.e. norms and rules of all kinds used by and for Norwegians and others who have something to do with the country.

Or it can be a «field for music», i.e. rules for leaps, beats, pauses, strength, instrumentation, etc. The rules are then applied, with various modifications, to everything from choirs and symphonies, to yoik and children's songs, from triangles to organ pipes and humming.

Fields can be mixed and overlap. For example, the rules for Norwegian folk tunes in the field of music can be shared and partly coincide with the field of Norway.

Both mentioned fields simultaneously interact intensely with the electromagnetic field, which is everywhere and affects everything.

It's just a matter of what is called interference. Two phenomena meet and reinforce or weaken each other, in whole or in part and according to specific rules.

Interference occurs at all levels in nature and the universe, in all degrees, sizes and frequencies. In addition, different elements in the various fields will affect each other to varying degrees in different contexts and perhaps with deviating rules in some contexts.


Yes exactly. This is one of the ways in which the complexity of the interpretation of the Pattern develops. The Pattern itself only follows the rudimentary rules of time, space, gravity, etc., but out of this grows an insanely rich selection of all conceivable notions resulting from a complex interplay and interference.

There are several such principles and mechanisms of chaos. We will look at them in the next chapter which is about complexity.
