Morphogenesis, the generation of form, is closely related to the mathematical field of topology, the study of the qualities of shape. Since cerebral thought distils itself into shapes, seen and felt, and their subsequent transformation, the study of the emergence and comprehension of shapes is central to address questions of consciousness, emerging at the apparent juxtaposition of the internal world of the mind, and the external world of physical objects.

Since light is a vibrating electromagnetic wave , we use principles derived from measurements of coherent speckle in light, where energy unfolds out of singularities in the field,  to draw analogies with the emergence of the material universe from centers of conscious experience. The vibrational basis of understanding consciousness is additionally complemented with ancient shaivik literature of south asia - the spandakarika (vibration chronicles).
