The ÆPT take on Ultimate Reality (UR) in near enough normal English
It is ÆPT to conclude that UR is, in a quantum-weird way, a timelessly eternal and universe spawning (or 'Hilbert space-time hatching') process.
It is also ÆPT to think of UR as an 'atheistically ethereal' process that as if statically (in a quasi Platonic sense) provides its own virtual infinity of blueprints for more or less dynamic and more or less likely but possible energy patterns — and also for a (perhaps smaller🧐) virtual infinity of impossible energy patterns.
In fewer words, it is ÆPT to conclude that UR is an energy patterning and of course also energy producing background to absolutely everything.
Never mind that energy in all its forms evades every (reductionistic and holistic) attempt at knowing what it 'consists of'.😐
UR is a source of universa with different degrees of evolutionary patternability:
That is, it is ÆPT to conclude that only a vanishingly small proportion of the total number (virtually infinite in size) of possible initial cosmological configurations (indicated by string-theory) that universa can emerge with allows an evolve-ability similar to that of our universe; That is, an evolve-ability such that bio-evolutionary energy-matter patterning can and will occur in them.
On the scale of an entire universe, such as our own clearly evolvable one, evolution can be described as starting off as a most ubiquitous possible energy-matter pattern production that results in least complex possible functural patterns followed by an increasingly less ubiquitous production of successively more complex patterns.
There can be little doubt that any evolutionary universal trend eventually grinds to a complete halt and devolutionary decay wins out in the end.
The ÆPT conclusions about UR makes it tempting to facetiously describe ÆPT as not just any atheistic enlightenment projecting take on what is going on but as a perspective that provides such an extreme philosophical traction that it amounts to an effectively philosophy terminating ‘FOOThold’ (Foremost Overview Of Truth). 😜
As 'a FOOThold', ÆPT has peripheral ties (necessarily loose ones) to the by far most successful approach at finding a near enough complete and self-consistent mathematical TOE[-hold] on what is going on as far as fundamental physics is concerned.
That is, the science-aligned ÆPT conclusions about UR are tied to clues provided by the most basic geometric-numerical ingredient of string/M-theory (namely the transcendental infinitely long and infinitely irregular number/ratio Pi) and from String Theory's hyper-geometric "Calabi-Yau manifolds" that represent 6 extra spatial dimensions (mathematically meaningful such, but they are hidden from our senses) that imply a virtually infinite number of alternative spacetime geometries or "vacua".
Hence, the world's smartest theoretical physics professionals are tacitly (and unknowingly) lending support to the simply drawn ÆPT conclusion that UR is bound [by the just mentioned SEPTIC, i.e. string/M-theoretical, ingredients] to be a timelessly eternal and otherwise virtually infinite source of different universa and energy-matter patterns; One of these ultimately possible universa is obviously ours, and one category of energy-matter patterns is no less obviously exemplified by our own species (an exceptionally EAVASIVE species of fauna).
String/M-theory is not only a super sophisticated mathematical framework for the science of fundamental physics (one that fundamentally incorporates quantum mechanics) but it is also the by far best theoretical candidate for deserving to be called a TOE (Theory Of Everything).
"The ÆPT trinity"😇😈
The ‘ÆPTly proposed’ trinity can be expressed as "Everness, Potentiality and Tendency".
"Everness" = timeless eternity
Potentiality = an effectively Platonic term for the virtually infinite yet also constrained plurality of energy patterns that are ultimately possible.
Tendency = a disposition to generate effects that together with Potentiality provides an energy patterning process that proceeds in the manner of the "Mother of all Methods" (UR's only 'method') — namely 'Arbitrary Error Plagued Trying' (also ÆPTly known as 'Aimless Effect Producing Trialing').
It is almost appears as if Charles Darwin either quasi-plagiarized (or inadvertently tapped into) this most fundamental of all methods.
As can be gleaned from the above, it is ÆPT to subscribe to the idea of "the multiverse".
That a multiverse is what is ultimately going on is self-evident because the universe we live in and sprung from simply can not have popped ('big-banged' or 'Inflationed' itself) into existence as a one-off occurrence from nothing.
The forms of energy-matter that are us, and that we feel and can measure, are "no_thing" (in the sense of what is not tangible); However, UR[’s Absolute Existence] Provides, To us, 'thingy' as well as 'not thingy' (such as not least consciousT) proofs of its ultimate existence.
