  1. From my point of view, the world is absolutely material.

    Even what is traditionally considered to belong to the immaterial world-ideas, scientific or religious theories, the inner (spiritual) life of a person, inspiration, artistic images-these are all forms and results of material processes.

    The peculiarity of these material processes is their energy-informational nature, due to the existence of the energy-informational field of the material world, which has a physical nature.

    In religious idealistic concepts of the world order, it is called differently-God, Spirit, Absolute.

    The field is a special mobile form of matter that permeates the entire material world.

    Regularity as a property of matter is supported precisely by the presence and functioning of the field.

    In anthropomorphic terms, the field “controls” processes in the material world, initiates movement in it, and maintains its unity and integrity. The field has weight, so it is material. Information in the field is distributed almost instantly.

    The field has powerful energy. This energy is the main source of our vital activity and life itself. There is no other way to explain the huge impact of ideas on people's lives. Although it should be borne in mind that the source of ideas is the field, it is its “tools” of management.

    Ideas are not something ephemeral, it is not clear how it arises, it is not clear where it exists, it is not clear how it spreads. They don't need to be mystified.

    Ideas are both material and physical phenomena.

  2. Hello.

    Counter question: What is the intangible world to you?

    The immaterial world, if we talk about the absence of matter as such, is.

    This is religion, spirituality, and the inner world of a person.

    You can't interact with the non-material world physically, you can only influence it, our consciousness interacts with it.

  3. No, it's not possible. Even if such a world existed, we wouldn't be able to learn anything about it. Just like in the non-material world, you wouldn't be able to learn anything about our material world. It would be two completely disjoint worlds. This follows from the definition of materiality: the material is that which can be registered by our senses or by some material instrument. That is, the material can interact with the material. That is, if an object of the immaterial world interacted with an object of our material world, it could no longer be considered immaterial.

  4. There cannot be a completely non-material world simply because for any structure to exist, there must be a carrier of this structure (or a description carrier…),
    So the world of a computer game is not material, but there is a completely material environment without which it will cease to exist.
    This external environment cannot be adequately described from within the game. (As well as proving that we have a game, and not everything is adult.), but this does not mean that the player can not interact with it through other channels.

    Another metaphor is matter as a moderator – The world in which all processes occur instantly has already ended its existence, since all processes have already ended, and at the same time :)…

    In general, if we draw a conditional axis from the material world to the completely non-material world, then as soon as the “idea” begins to prevail over the “mass”, the world will become unstable.

    We have the stability of the laws of physics.
    Why such complexity ?:)
    I think that this is one of the basic vectors of the existence of our reality-constant complication . (a special case of this is the expansion of the universe)
    Otherwise, the universe would have already simplified and collapsed.:)
    About the beginning of everything – in all religions about the same thing in the beginning was self-determination (separation) and then creation(generation).
    And our world is in any case self-centered and clearly not primary (at least the second (third)iteration of this universe only), even from the point of view of scientific cosmology. Science cannot reason from here about the reasons that gave rise to the first iteration.
    Well, the areas of the universe that collapsed in the first iteration never existed for us…
    And in the second (third) iteration, the world around us is already quite complex.
    And our science is now moving in the same direction, creating more and more complex systems and structures.and soon the silicon mind will be thinking about the nature of the universe . …
    This logic can be inverted.

  5. what you call immaterial is commonly called subtle .. if you follow this convention, then 90% of the nonsense that has already been said here will disappear.

    intangible is the world of ideas, some virtual formations, etc … for example..

    you can draw a public transport route on the map, imagine it, change it, and even complain about its non-compliance .. but there is no physical embodiment of it. even the path taken by a separate bus from the starting to the final stop is not a route, but only a single approximation of it.

    these are the intangible objects and worlds that surround us, these are laws, rules, methods, conventions .. these are probabilities and possibilities that are not material , and even their embodiments (as the realization of a possibility) are not the prototype itself.

    various views on the spiritual astral and other SUBTLE MATERIAL worlds define these worlds as MATERIAL, although the structure is much more subtle than the world of physical objects and energy influences around us.
