After looking into the concept of Potential I've found that the equations describing electrical, kinetic, gravitational, light and wind and bubble tension etc.. potentials do not fully describe what potential is... on its own. They simply describe the possiblities that are inherent with the elements of light etc... as "potentials". For instance a spring that is compressed has the propensity to "spring" back into its original shape or back to a shape that we would consider a spring at rest. But the potential that spring has to "spring back" into its original shape or to "be compressed" again does not have an equation. It is simply called potential. In Neuroscience there are "evoked potentials". Evoked potential describes a stimulus that stimulates a potential in to being or into actualization in the brain and eventually the rest of the body. When the sun rises it evokes the potential in our brain to a. realize its morning... b. have a pleasant sensation... c. come out of a state of rest or sleep.... etc.... When the sun sets there is a completely different set of evoked potentials that are stimulated in our brain. Each stimulus we are able to perceive holds the potential to evoke a potential in our brain. For now, I am going to include the concept of VALUE as a potential that is evoked by stimulus. If there is another way to understand value and all its implications I would like to see them in this thread so that we can explore the "meaning" of value and its implications as well as perhaps understand potential a little better. Thank you!
