A view from the top: the fabric of physical reality is the ‘nearest’ form-realm manifestation of a formless changeless supra-consciousness. This fabric is consciousness-like; however, it is mathematical, probably static, but possessing an embedded aim that emerges as the myriad phenomena of physical reality. How deep does this fabric go? Extremely deep! The Standard Model of particle physics, with its mathematical nucleus of local gauge invariance, has understood the fundaments of the fabric’s emergent surface. Moving deeper into the origin of ‘local gauge invariance’, one finds that it falls out as a consequent of ‘supersymmetry’ constraints on the centerpiece spaces of M-Theory, the compact Calabi-Yau spaces. In other words, the architecture of space ultimately gives rise to the specifics of the interactions of the elementary particles. Gravity, a high level phenomenon, is also known from the well vetted ideas of general relativity to depend on properties of the architecture of space. Leading edge efforts such as, gauge/gravity duality, explain the origin of the Standard Model’s gauge theories as the consequences of phenomena within a mathematically deeper realm, i.e., the M-Theory ‘AdS bulk’. Then, the Standard Model’s basis model, local gauge invariance, is found to be ‘living’ on the flat-space “boundary” of the AdS “bulk” where the fundaments of gravity lie. What about descending lower still towards the very foundations of the mathematical fabric? Current research is asserting that the “bulk” where gravity lives emerges directly from a set of interacting ‘spins’, which are effectively instances of primal polarizations. The techniques of quantum geometry are being applied to predict the emergence of spacetime itself from these most primitive elements. Could a complete theory of quantum gravity directly result from a model centrally featuring a multidimensional array of polarization primitives? This is the hope of some leading edge theorists. Yet, how far could such a theory go in predicting the emergence of life and consciousness? At this stage of the evolution of consciousness on the earth--not very far; in fact, it may be that the minutia of physical reality’s design and its implications for composite structure and behavior is too close to infinite complexity to ever be intellectually modeled.
