I am still putting some of the implications together, still have yet to assemble all the details, have yet to master all the language of MBT-speak.
But it seems to me at this point that among the premier consequences of Tom's theory is that ALL models, ALL structures in consciousness, can be rendered into a digital format. ONE of the upshots of this is that ALL such models or consciousness structures can be rendered in terms of one another. The air is pretty thin at this altitude, so let me put it this way:
The theory suggests that a universal translator could and eventually will be fabricated such that any item of consciousness could be translated from one being to another... like a universal translator, complete with an efficiency of transference rating. This is enormously powerful when you think of the implications.
The theory also suggests that there is typology of consciousness structures, and ultimately these will be studied, categorized according to properties, and their strengths and weakness for particular applications understood. Further, it will create a structure (model) that will predict possible but as yet unknown or unemployed structures in consciousness. I say 'structures' and that sounds static, really these are more like dynamic, iterating, living processes, and more. Pretty slick!
The theory also provides a path a solid framework for belief system independence.... what a breath of fresh air THAT is!
I suspect that many people have a hard time fathoming the TOE, and that is because of the extreme altitude (level of abstraction) that is its habitat, so to speak.... the air is quite a bit thinner than most minds care to fly in. Including me, I should add... that is not a fault of the theory though, just an indicator of the heaviness of my wings, so to speak. Personally I am much more interested in the 'street level' applications for now, but some day I trust I shall have evolved to a point where I can access a level (or style) of consciousness that can render any data suite out digitally, and reprocess from there.
The whole "it's all about love" business, I do not doubt, but I have yet to master even a crude complete understanding of it. It is a lesson set that I look forward to having completed... it is a bumpy road, I understand.
