    Perspective: Once you are able to visualize this center in your mind that is empty of all concepts, you have a perspective. A perspective is not consciousness nor is it an awareness. It is an undifferentiated state of non-involvement. A perspective starts with the center; it is a way of observing without an observer and without anything to be observed. In a way, you may think of it as a beginning of a subjectless subject.
    Nonexistence: Once there is the perspective, what actually happens is a form of fragmentation of absolute nothing into its aspect of Time. It is still an undifferentiated state, but it is the last and least undifferentiated of the preceding stages.

    Transcendental Materialism
    Transmaterialism is the materialistic direction matching that of Aristotle and can be described as the missing link between Kant and Aristotle
    on the CRH. The rhetorical purpose of transmaterialism is to flip the direction of materialism without changing it into idealism. Here is an introduction to transmaterialism.
    Part I. Nothing
    The following sequence deals with “nothing” not as a mere word but as a metaphysical (fundamental) concept:
    Absolute nothing: Absolute nothing has neither space nor time nor anything epistemological nor metaphysical. In a way, it is pre-metaphysical. It is actually eternal and actually infinite. It is out of metaphysical Space/Time and out of epistemological spacetime. None of these apply to absolute nothing. That is, they do not apply.
    Center: When we start with absolute nothing, we have to wipe everything clean; we start from a so-called blank slate, or tabula rasa. Once we start with true absolute nothing, we have no choice but to select a center, a center that you can imagine to be invisible, like an invisible point, to be neither Space/Time nor spacetime; to have no properties except for its being a center, a center of absolute nothing.
    Perspective: Once you are able to visualize this center in your mind that is empty of all concepts, you have a perspective. A perspective is not consciousness nor is it an awareness. It is an undifferentiated state of non-involvement. A perspective starts with the center; it is a way of observing without an observer and without anything to be observed. In a way, you may think of it as a beginning of a subjectless subject.
    Nonexistence: Once there is the perspective, what actually happens is a form of fragmentation of absolute nothing into its aspect of Time. It is still an undifferentiated state, but it is the last and least undifferentiated of the preceding stages.
    To help metaphysically visualize the concept of Nonexistence, imagine a circle within a circle (or a sphere within a sphere). What’s between the circles (or spheres) is absolute everything; what’s within the circle, that is, the inner circle, is Nonexistence. Nonexistence leads to the epistemological measurements of sensations, such as the Planck time.
    Part II. Modern physics
    There is a lecture titled “The Black Hole Wars: My Battle with Stephen Hawking.” It is given by a prominent physicist from Stanford: Dr. Leonard Susskind. He raises two points:
    The Planck units (referring to photons) are the most fundamental units of measurement (compare this to Nassim Haramein’s calling them “the smallest thing[s] in the universe”).
    Objectivity, as defined by the law of identity, is mind-dependent.
