To make the pattern complete, a new sentience must be created with every grouping, even a group of two…again, think gravity. If it doesn’t start adding a new sentience at two, what critical weight—and exactly what would we be weighing—would need to be reached to create that new sentience? We’d be back to emergence.
We have all experienced the different dynamics between hanging out (grouping) with one friend and then adding another friend to the mix. Is each grouping a different entity?
I picture the gravity groupings much like Einstein’s gravity fields: a multi-dimensional grid that warps where there are objects that are within the scope of my perspectives, but which would appear to warp differently to other entities coming from other perspectives. An entity grouping the size of a quark would not easily notice the warp our sun makes in the grid; an entity the size of the galaxy would not easily notice the warp I make in the grid. We are embedded much too deeply in our universe to notice the warp other universes make in the grid.
If there is no final building block of matter, the warp in the grid IS the sun, the human, the quark…. The warp itself would be the entity, which would be the intersection of other groups of entities. This grid is another way of picturing the perspective horizon.
