Non-simultaneity means that this room, all radiations, all atomic frequencies are non simultaneous. There is no logical, composite picture of anything. There is no inherent associability. Some of the stars you "see" are in your stomach. All words are attempts to tell experience but like universe you can take all words and make coherent sentences. There is no ideal moment, no instantenaiety. Thought is small field differentiation. How fast (much) are the total patterns tied in local knots so that they appear static. On earth (spaceship) it means getting supplies. The Red Shift Harlow Shapley is associated with the red shift. Red glow at night is bending of light. We now know we have an expanding universe because we discovered the red shift far away. Like the childhood tension experience where we discover that tension straightens while compression curls things up. What is Generalization in Science? Something that always persists. In the humanities it doesn't mean much. Mathematics is not generalizable, it's only good for local patterns. Boolean mathematics is only generalizable with multiplication. Math people play decent games but they are not generalizable. Many of them are not legitimate or natural. The Law of the Increase of the Random Element Entropy to mathematicians. It matches the fallout and takes up more space. According to Eddington we get 100,000 tons of stardust daily and the earth's weight increases. The earth's crust has all elements in good proportions. Making the topsoil took years to get keys to man's survival in the universe. The sun has Hydrogen, Helium and Carbon while the earth has most all elements in it's crust. It's in the crust or the topsoil where worms, flies and other organisms do things inadvertently to gain their local advantage. Intellect. Automation. Man is all automated. There are few things we do consciously. Those things we do do consciously are called design. All conscious thinking is design. Man has a design capability.
