"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

The Nature of a Noetic Field

It is undeniable that human thought has transformed physical processes upon this planet. The question might be asked how to model the geometry of the evolution of an ongoing ever less imperfect human practice in this regard. We know that Riemann's approach to an n-dimensional multi valued topological dynamical surface function has been successfully adopted in physics. It is also quite apparent that the biophysical functional space is ever more densely interconnected via singularities that have such multi-valued qualities.

The Socratic point that Riemann made in his Grundlagen that at the very small and very large the norms of sense certainty break down can also be seen as a kind of road map for fundamental progress in investigative science. Which is to say, the governing mission of humanity requires that those immanent cognitive powers precisely be developed in order to bring our practice into coherence with an underlying ordering principle of evolution of the overarching totality of the physical, biophysical and noetic realms.

The capability of creative thought to subsume this higher such function must serve as a motive toward how we arrange our actions in the here and now.
