9. The Liminals & the Subconscious

Two Latent Mysteries of Triple Pulse Study

Mathematical Mystery: Why Interruptions to the Rest Pulse affect the Active Pulse

Neurological Mystery: Why is the brain incredibly activity during sleep?

Zeroing out the Triple Pulse

3 Inherent Features of the Living Algorithm

Triple Pulse: a visualization of the Directional, the Daughter

Liminals: the Grandchildren of the Living Algorithm Family

Liminals also zero out at end of each Pulse

Interrupted Liminals prevent Rest Pulse from zeroing out

Liminals' Turbulence disrupts Rhythm of Ensuing Pulse

Graphic Visualizations

Family, Team, Liminals must work together to maximize performance


21st Century Science: Brain 'unbelievably active' during sleep

The Neurological Mystery

Triple Pulse components: Green Active & Rest Pulses and Multi-colored Liminals

Agenda of Liminals independent of Pulse

Liminals: Subconscious Cognition?

Definitions: Conscious, Unconscious, & Subconscious

Definition corresponds with Experience

Mathematical Correspondence

Liminals: Reason for Name

Experimental Correspondence

Theory: Subconscious continues to process Info while we sleep

The Liminals & the Subconscious: some casual Associations

Suggestive Associations lend credence to Theory

Liminals: Dreaming?

Infinite Subconscious versus a Point of Consciousness

Infinite number of Liminals and their relationships: Just one Triple Pulse

Tentative Explanation of Neurological Mystery

Living Algorithm Info Patterns suggests Answer

Mathematics: Rest Pulse required to digest Energy Accumulation from Active Pulse

Subconscious requires Sleep to completely digest Energy Accumulation of the Day

Intense brain activity during sleep: Subconscious (Liminals) working overtime to process info

Theory requires many support articles, but opportunity to meet Liminals

Is this correspondence yet another coincidence linked by a confounding variable?


10. The Triple Pulse & the Biology of Sleep

Biological Mechanisms behind Sleep

Tantalizing Questions

Our Source (once again): Medina’s brain rules

Dement’s “Opponent Process Model”

Mysterious ongoing Conflict – day and night

Counterintuitive results: Need for Rest does not drive Biology of Sleep

Composition of Opposing Armies

Mechanism behind opponent process model remains a mystery.

The Living Algorithm's Living Average (the 1st Derivative of a Data Stream)

Living Algorithm's digestive process reveals a data stream's ongoing rates of change (derivatives).

X-axis, the number of iterations; Y-axis, relative values

Living Average: the 1st Derivative of a Data Stream

The Rise of the Triple Pulse's Living Average

The Fall of the Triple Pulse's Living Average

Alternation of '1s' string and 0s string maximizes changes in the Living Average.

A Mathematical Battle between 0s & 1s

Triple Pulse battle between an army of 1s and an army of 0s.

Army of 0s (System S) and Army of 1s (System C); Living Average, gauge of battle's progress.

After the Army of 1s wins the battle, the Army of 0s takes over.

Simplistic Battle makes no sense.

The System 'stagnates' if either Process C or S wins the war.

If Process Sleep wins the war, we enter a coma and die.

What's wrong with Process Consciousness winning the war?

Endless string of 1s to symbolize what happens if Process C won the war

The Data Stream's Rates of Change (Derivatives) flatline, if Process C wins the war.

Graph: Derivatives of a Data Stream of 1s

Cooperation to maximize potentials makes complete sense

Criterion: Which Model provides greater Explanatory Power?

Both Models – Mathematical & Dement's – are metaphorical abstractions of Empirical Reality.

All Models are Metaphorical Abstractions

Pattern Recognition: a Preliminary Filter, but no Causality

Next Stage: An Examination of the Model's Underlying Logic for Explanatory Power

The Advantage of Mathematics: the Underlying Logic is Crystal Clear.

Dement's Model based on non-mathematical Military Metaphor

The Strength of Mathematics: Universality

Alternating Process C (the 1 string) & Process S (the 0 string) prevents Stagnation & maximizes Mental Vitality.

Review Correspondences between Triple Pulse and Sleep Deprivation for understanding

Process C's Army of 1s generates Active Pulse; Process S's army of 0s generates Rest Pulse.

Relationships mimic each other

Periodic Alternation of Active & Rest Pulses to avoid stagnation & refresh potentials

Active Pulse associated with cognitive abilities in Sleep Deprivation study

Why Data Stream Derivatives might symbolize Available Mental Energy

Active Pulse symbolizes Mental Energy, rather than cognitive abilities.

Timed Repetitions required to change Neural Networks/Cognitive Abilities.

Neural Networks/Cognitive Abilities are Relatively Stable.

Energy required to utilize Tools.

Energy has a physical and mental component.

Sleep Loss leads to loss of Mental Energy, which, in turn, leads to Diminished Cognitive Performance.

Suppose the Data Stream Derivatives are associated with System's Mental Vitality.

Derivatives up; Mental Energy up; and vice versa.

Derivatives/Mental Energy Correspondence applied to C & S processes

If the army of 1s (Process C) remains in control for too long, the System's mental vitality vanishes.

Alternating streams of 1s & 0s maximizes System's vitality.

Cooperation to maximize potentials – Not a war of destruction

Do Process Consciousness & Process Sleep alternate to maximize vitality?

A Number's Information Energy works to change Living Average to its Value.

Number Strings of 1s and 0s as armies of workers, rather than battling soldiers

Numbers are a Bundle of Information Energy that works to change the Living Average to their side.

At point of victory, Workforce of 1s has finished their job.

The longer a workforce has controlled the field; the more likely they have finished their task.

The Complementary Tasks of Process Sleep and Process Conscious

If a cooperative relationship between workforces, what are the complementary tasks?

String of 1s symbolizes Conscious Attention & generates the Pulse of Attention.

The Pulse of Attention: a pulse of Mental Energy

Task of Process C, the mental energy generator: accumulate and assimilate Fresh Information.

Process S: no more mental energy of Attention.

Why couldn't Process Conscious continue forever?

Mental Energy of Attention based upon method of information digestion, not physical energy.

Efficient Use of Attention maximizes Mental Energy

Insufficient downtime also inhibits Pulse's ideal potentials

Duration of Downtime & Attention must be just right to maximize Mental Energy.

Task of Process S to provide downtime to digest leftover mental energy

Attention begins the Information Digestion Process; Sleep finishes it.

Play of Mathematical and Biological Forms

Exact parallel suggests Biological Forms mimic Mathematical Forms

Could Biological Forms have evolved to take advantage of the Living Algorithm System?

Biology also adapts to earth's 24 hour revolution

Although math-driven, Biological mechanisms take precedence

Triple Pulse: a plausible and powerful mathematical explanation for the biology of sleep

Do Triple Pulse thresholds trigger the C & S processes?
