Can we trace back consciousness, reality, awareness, and free will to a single basic structure without giving up any of them? This DIALOGUE founds consciousness and freedom of choice on the basis of a new reality concept that also includes the infinite as far as we understand it. Just the simplest distinction contains consciousness. It is not static, but a constant alternation of perspectives. From its entirety and movement, however, there arises a freedom of choice being more than reinterpreted necessity and unpredictability. The unity and openness of the infinite enables the individual to be creative while this creativity directly and indirectly enters into all other individuals without impeding them.
Great Read. Thank you for putting your work out into a conscious space for all. Much appreciated.

Also in this book:
The Reality of Free Will
The uniqueness of each viewpoint, each point of effect, can be "overcome" only by changing the viewpoint to other viewpoints and returning. Such an alternation, which can also appear as constant change, makes up the unity of the world. The wholeness of an alternation, however, is a consciousness structure because of the special relationship between the circumscribing periphery and the infinitesimal center. This process structure unites determinacy and indeterminacy at every point also totally. We are dealing, therefore, with forms of consciousness everywhere, with more or less freedom of choice and an increasingly unknown depth. We live in a world of choosing consciousness or better: awareness. In this respect, our environment expresses a deep truth about ourselves.
I am impressed by the comprehensiveness of your interdisciplinary approach. There are some major philosophical concepts which you weave very well into a necessary system of reality: potential, the one and the many, alternation, constant change, the reality and uniqueness of oneiric experience and the whole, interdependence, infinity, the mandate of opposites and many more. The combination of these ideas cannot be attributed solely to any other of the established classical and modern thinkers of whom I am aware. I thank you for your enlightenment.

Your important book entitled 'Alternating Consciousness' is very significative for our project involving creativity and social innovation research.

(Reader comments apply to the main part Alternating Consciousness.)
My explanation for why no one has yet proposed an I-structure (infinitesimality structure) is that this basically simple concept of reality presupposes a combination of four apparently very different perspectives. Known approaches combine at best two of them, but largely ignore the others. However, if one includes all four equally, elementary philosophical problems such as those of free will, the particularity of consciousness ('qualia'), and the relation to the Other (intersubjectivity) almost solve themselves.
