Chapter 6
The Ring of the Existence

1. If we think of a deep zone of the world, that zone that we call orthoexistence, the zone in which universes are formed and in which their laws are established, then a number of questions will come up naturally: What is the structure of this deep zone ? Is there compatibility between the logic of our universe, our minds included, and the logic of orthoexistence ? Can our logic comprehend it ?
But since between our universe and orthoexistence can not be a break, but the opposite, there is a link expressing the unity of the world, we can conclude that in our universe some properties of the orthoexistence are reflected and also that some forms of coupling with the orthoexistence can be distinguished.

When trying to construct some mental model of the orthoexistence we should consider at least several factors:

If we were to understand the material world starting from orthoexistence towards the universe in which we found ourselves, and taking into account the tendency of human mind to search for ultimate entities of the world, we would admit that orthoexistence enfolds two foremost material substances. One of these substances we call energymatter and it represents the source of the substance in the Universe. In orthoexistence energymatter is not structured and has the character of a reservoir in which matter approaches a total equilibrium in depth*. It canbe structured and stimulated into an universe only upon the interventionof a structurable substance from the orthoexistence. This substancemust be an informational material substance that we shall callinformational matter or informatter. It is that holding the laws of the Universe through a specific structure in orthoexistence. The simplest image that we shall have regarding energymatter is that of a foremost energy which possibly is not quite the energy of the Universe but which, through this image, can be placed in a reservoir with its volume diminishing to zero. Energymatter is a foremost energy, an energy that requires no space. If we imagine that it is contained in a zero volume reservoir then it makes no sense to ask ourselves what is the quantity of energy contained in orthoexistence since it will become quantitative only in the Universe, after it couples with informatter. Energymatter is an unitary substance that can be structured to yield universes (Fig.10b) and in each universe it structuring yields space, particles, fields, and time.

Viewed from our universe, orthoexistence appears outside space and time, being, as shown, an additional coordinate of the material world. This coordinate is not space. We can imagine it as a space such that certain images can be formed in our minds, but then we have to reduce everything to zero dimensions such that the reality of orthoexistence is approached. It is like orthoexistence being a space without distance, unmeasurable. Our universe can, in fact, be considered such a space without distance, without dimensions. Does this means that our space does not exist ? Certainly not. Space is a phenomenon of the process by which energymatter is structured by informatter. For the observer inside the universe it exists objectively, outside the subject. But understood through orthoexistence it appears as a process, as a phenomenon, as a form of manifestation for the existence of the matter in the universe. Space is an objective process, we repeat, process, and hence it is possible that we do not yet understand its exact nature. The notion of space was born by man observing macroscopically the surrounding reality and acting within this reality. As we have already mentioned elsewhere, man (and animal as well) can continuize, and hence we sense a continuous macroscopical space. The entire science has maintained until now this image of the space taking it then in the study of the microcosms as well. Einstein, in its Theory of Relativity, explains the universe as a continuum, by reducing it to Geometry. The quantum theories, maintaining the continuity of space, give a discontinuous description of microscopical particles and phenomena. It is true that discontinuous theories of space have been proposed, that the quantification of space has been suggested, starting from the idea that there are no physical processes covering a space area less than that corresponding to 10-15 m (electron radius)1. H. Poincaré, W. Heisenberg, D.D. Ivanenko et al. thought of the possibility of quantifying space. It is known that if the electron were to be represented as a point its energy would be infinite. In order that its energy remains finite one considers the image of a micro-object with a given coverage but even this image meets with a serious of difficulties connected with its space structure. If a space quantum were admitted, such difficulties would be easier overcome but, as mentioned by Heisenberg, this would mean creating a theory more general than Quantum Mechanics and imagining a microspace having properties different from those of the macrospace. March and Faradori2 consider the microspace made up of cells with partial overlap. In this space the measures yield a mean length, the result of statistical averaging, this being the way towards the usual space. The fact that space should have, when considered below certain dimensions, another structure than the usual one should not surprise anyone since space is a phenomenon observed by the human society at its macro-scale, via the continuizing abilities of the human being. And hence it was used in all the physical theories until now. A quantified space, if and when such a new Quantum Mechanics is created, will still bear the images of the macro-space, but will in the same time reflect deeper realities. But even then we shall ask ourselves: What is like inside itself the space quantum ? Just as we ask ourselves today: What is the electron like inside itself ? What is the electron charge, what is its nature, how does it relate with the substance ? What is the deep relationship between the wave and particle properties of the matter ? Morris Klein notes: "Today in quantum mechanics physicists are striving to resolve the seemingly contradictory wave and particle properties of subatomic matter, and they may have to generate both from quanta of space. Perhaps matter itself will also dissolve into pure space"3.

* This does not mean that in assembly the total equilibrium is reached since this would coincide with the nonbeing of Aristotle. More appropriate one should say that reaching such an equilibrium is impossible as resulting from the informaterial movement. The understanding of the tendency towards equilibrium cannot be broken away from the problem of equilibrium-desequilibrium existing in the space-time world.
