Probability, Uncertainty and Quantum Waves of Consciousness

The terms uncertainty and probability are mathematical concepts that do not refer to anything physical. Uncertainty is a condition of the mind. Whether the cat is alive or dead is only an uncertainty to the mind of an observer outside the box. To the cat and its fleas, there is no uncertainty. Probability is statistical, inferring the comparison of many events over time. Time is another mental concept involving a memory and something like an imagination that can plot a path into the future.

If it is true that Quantum Mechanics, “is the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles,” and involves these same nonphysical, but decidedly mental concepts, how can we deny that QM is the very essence of intelligence? When we say, “That’s probably true,” or “I think so,” we are exercising our ability to imagine the future.

How is it that subatomic particles are engaged in the same kind of behavior? If subatomic particles are somehow connected to future events, it must be through some nonphysical process that remembers, evaluates and acts, very much like our own consciousness. The process is most certainly nonlinear, non-local, fully coherent and interconnected.

The model becomes clear when we view the Universe, not as an explosion, but a computation. The Big Bang becomes the Big Bootup, with no need to suspend classical physics for it to happen.

There is no paradox between quantum mechanics and classical physics if you consider one is the process and the other is the output. In the information processing model, the output of the quantum process is the physical Universe. The physical Universe is the expression of the current state of the process. The overlapping, nested and holistically interconnected quantum coherent fields represented by wavefunction, are the process in action. In this model it makes perfect sense that subatomic particles represent non-local variables, and could be collapsed by local interference.

…ran across this today. It’s a good one! Check it out.

The Quantum Surrender of Science

Science, a once-paralyzed minority of yesterday’s evangelical world, has long last come to the pinnacle of its predecessor. Scientists, now modern day vicars of faith, don fact as surrogates for dogma in their indoctrination of the ever impressionable public mind. As if clergy of old, their methods of derivation remain sacrosanct outside of scientific circles, impervious to the same investigation they readily apply elsewhere. To question the possible defects of the system that produces the central truths by which we live is to question reality itself, for how well our world view has been prescribed by scholastic teachings of scientific convention. All of our lives we have been taught that the world is a predictable place, and where it is not, thereby a lack of information, and not science, exists. We have been told to hold our tongue and quietly shave with the Razor of Occam when faced with the complexities of the unknown. But, let us exhibit caution before we obediently lock ourselves in the edifice of science, for a house of verity built on a foundation of error is sure to fall. Truths, despite adherence to the rules from which they are erected, become little more than falsehoods under incomplete laws of construct. Heterodoxies Blog presents The Quantum Surrender of Science, a composition on the deconstruction of scientific axiom, which aims to usurp the primacy of science by means of its own dilation, as the progression of such institutions are to be understood as an evolution, and not as the doctrine of truth we have been made to believe.

The middle is the best part.

What is needed now is the persistent disposal of scientific models that are limited to reductionism, determinism and localism, to be replaced with new models that consider factors from both higher and lower hierarchical levels, as well as those that acknowledge the observer and the act of measurement itself on reality.

Models focused on the systems approach, understanding processes and their control mechanisms, will take us to an objective view of objects, a higher level of functionality.

But most of all, in our infinite trek for truth, our scientific models of tomorrow must not only remember to bring society and its educational establishments along for the ride, they must demand participation from the true unveilers of the infinite realities they seek to ascertain.

I agree, but can “science” really give up? They seem to be turning deeper into their contrived material fantasy world. Meanwhile, the pseudo scientists, new agers and witchdoctors are leaving them behind, ready to embrace Quantum Mechanics as evidence of the existence of a mystical realm. Unafraid to incorporate QM into their understanding and improve their performance in real life. Even if science gets their models right, it could be another century before they can put them to proper use. You and i can put this knowledge to use today.

Meditate on it.

Wave Function

Filed under: Ch 06 Holoverse — Tags: , , , , , , — insomniac @ 7:54 am

Originally i was going to mention wavefunction only as an example of the information carried by particles within the System. I’m trying to stay away from controversial details and focus on the broader concepts that have a high degree of agreement. However, the more i read about quantum physics and wavefunction in particular, the more convinced i become that these properties represent the holographic memory in action.

I can’t see inside atoms or molecules. None of us can see a wavefunction. None of us can see an electromagnetic field, coherent or otherwise. Using all of our physical senses we can’t verify directly that these things really exist. We trust science to describe these concepts for us. This gives us something to pass around and discuss.

Science uses instruments and experiments to build their concepts, leaving the rest of us to put their theories to the test in real life. I’ve been working from the other direction. I started with real life and i’m looking for the scientific concepts that fit.

I have found the System of Life to be intelligent, responsive and capable of will, intent and even humor. My life’s path has taken me through many experiences considered impossible by scientific standards. I also read a lot, and have found many other folks who have lived the impossible life. I have tried to find the scientific concepts that could explain these experiences. After all, science is studying the same reality as the rest of us.

I have also studied much the body of literature produced by the outcasts of science, looking for the same kinds of clues. The System works! It is not done by unfathomable technology nor magic. The System functions using nothing but natural laws. What i am trying to do here is point out the natural processes identified by researchers that could produce the results i see. I’ve been guided by information furnished by the System itself, through agents and channels not recognized at all by science. I have tested my model repeatedly. I’ve held it up to the window of history and the patterns match. I have found this information processing model to fit.

On the other hand, i’m completely dependent on the description of others. Wavefunction is a case in point. I really don’t have any first hand experience with wave function or any other concept of quantum mechanics. I have to go by what i’ve read and what people tell me. I am excited about it because the descriptions of the properties of wavefunction coincide with the needs of the LifeOS model. It is like a piece of the puzzle slides effortlessly into place. Maybe it is too easy. Time will tell.

As an information processing system, the micro units need to have memory. The smallest particle needs the capacity to manage information.

“A wave function or wavefunction is a mathematical tool used in quantum mechanics to describe any physical system.

The values of the wave function are probability amplitudes — complex numbers — the squares of the absolute values of which, give the probability distribution that the system will be in any of the possible states.”
Quoted from: Wikipedia

In other words, the wave function is a way of describing the properties of a particle or group of particles. The wavefunction contains information about the physical object. Wavefunction is an imaginary model describing the reality of an object. The spin, momentum and other properties are as real as we can test experimentally.

Like the wiki says, wavefunction is a “tool” we can use to describe what seems to be going on. What ever is going on, it involves something big. Those “probability amplitudes” are huge numbers when used to describe very tiny particles. When combined with other particles, the number of possible states grows exponentially. In the model we are building here, this potential represents an infinite data storage capacity. In this model, the atom, with its structure and energized particles, is a single holographic memory unit. Its input is the dynamic flow of interference patterns laid down by the Holoverse. What it stores is the
comparison between current interference patterns generated by the system and past patterns. When they don’t match, a refraction of the mismatch is projected holographically throughout the system.

Binary Switches

In a binary computer system, it is the state of the binary switch that holds the data. The state of one switch tells you very little; it is only one bit. It takes eight bits to make one byte, the basic unit of information. It takes a lot of bits to make useful information.

If you could get inside the crystal structure that holds the switches in a modern computer, and try to measure the state of one of those transistors, you would most probably cause the state of the switch to change. The charges that hold those switches in their state are so tiny that just touching them could switch their state.

That is analogous to the problem encountered in quantum physics. When they try to measure the state of subatomic particles, the state changes. If matter is a memory medium, as the LifeOS model contends, then this odd behavior of subatomic particles is just as expected.

Infinite Memory States

If we look at matter as the holographic memory medium, then the state of particles is the very heart of the process. In this holographic memory system, it is the state of particles that holds the information. The state of one particle doesn’t tell us much, but the combined states of all the particles within a system projects its holographic image, which equals the current reality of that system.

In our binary computers, there are only two possible states for a unit of memory. In this system a unit of memory should have a nearly infinite number of states.

It would also seem that there would be several ways that those states could be manipulated to produce instant processing of information. This is like the register of a cpu, instead of centrally located, it functions at the quantum level. It is like the structure of a computer turned inside out. It is more like a computer network, where each unit does its own processing, while the combined processing of all the units acts as if it were all one process.

The state of the individual particle is set by the harmonic of the hologram it belongs to. The state can be changed by local input, but it remembers the state it should be in and registers the new state as an aberration. News of that mismatch spreads through the system holographically.

In this view, the fuzziness of matter detected by quantum mechanics is not because matter is unstable or imaginary, but because it is made up of a memory material capable of an infinite number of memory states.

When we are looking at matter at the quantum level it is like looking at the transistors in a computer. Studying one transistor will tell us that it has two states and that the state is controlled by a minute electrical current. That information tells us nothing about how that switch participates in the system, or what it contributes to the meaning of the data stored there.

When we study subatomic particles we are blinded to the macro by the same micro vision. We can’t see the computer for the transistors. Once we look at the Whole System as an information processor, then the uncertainties at the quantum level make perfect sense. Instead of a binary switch on which to base our data processor, we have particles that possess infinite memory states, grouped into atoms and molecules that organize those tiny bottomless pits for information into super-mega giant memory banks that also process their info on the fly. What these memory banks remember is where they have been and what they have done, while keeping track of what they are doing and where they are going. The Universe processes information on a cosmic scale. This is information, processing itself, in an endless loop. It isn’t only that the Universe operates by feedback loops, feedback might be considered its primary function.

Wave Function Detour

Filed under: Life OS News — Tags: , , , , , , , — insomniac @ 7:09 am

Writing a manuscript always takes some twists and turns. As the story develops it often surprises the author. I’ve come upon one of those interesting forks in the road that any journey is bound to provide. Part of the thrill of a journey is the unexpected.

It all came about because of Wikipedia and a discussion about the wavefunction page. If you’ve been following along you know that i’m painting in broad strokes here, and am not about to get bogged down in details. These folks are all about details and are trying to get this page right. The discussion ranges from whether wavefunction should be two words all the way up to the relevance of certain equations. I have no way of judging who is right or wrong, but i can surely see that the term means different things to different folks. A wavefunction is one thing to a mathematician and another to a physicist. It means something a little different in fluid dynamics. Even in physics, it means something different in classic physics from quantum mechanics.

What drew me to study the term was that it represents the information about the state of a wave system. What i’m looking for is the common ground, concepts that are common to all these views. Although factions disagree on the details of that information and whether or not it represents information only in the mind of the observer or information actually contained within the structure of the wave, they agree that the wave function describes a particular wave and its component parts.

That’s the scientific term for what i’ve been talking about here, the information present in all matter. The wave function is a static formula attempting to describe a dynamic situation. In the reading of the wavefunction discussion, i was taken by just how pivitol this concept is to the LifeOS model. The more i thought about it the more i could see that i needed to rewrite some earier installments to include the concept of wave function.

What brought me to wave function was the several paradoxes involving waves and particles, including measurment and the observer, and such. These paradoxes show problems with perception rather than some malfunction of the Universe. The theory of everything should not have these flaws in perception. Well, the LifeOS model pretty much erases these seeming pardoxes.

So, i’m backing off on the manuscript for a few days while i sort this out. Meanwhile, i’m willing to talk about it. Here is the crux…

In LifeOS, the Whole System, all matter is the memory of the Universe. It operates in much the same way as RAM memory in that the data is stored in the “state” of the recording medium, in this case a binary switch. This is how any recording device works, by changing the state of the recording medium.

Ok, in LifeOS the recording medium is matter and it remembers by altering the state of the medium. Holographic memory works like this. So in this model, holographic information is stored in matter at the quantum level, by altering the state of the medium.

In a binary computer sytem, it is the state of the binary switch that holds the data. The state of one switch tells you very little; it is only one bit. It takes eight bits to make one byte, the basic unit of data. It takes a lot of bits to make useful information.

If you could get inside the crystal structure that holds the switches in a modern computer, and tried to measure the state of one of those transistors, you would most probably cause the state of the switch to change. The charges that hold those switches in their state are so tiny that just touching them could switch their state.

That is the same problem encountered in quantum physics. When they try to measure the state of subatomic particles, the state changes. If matter is a memory medium, as this model contends, then this odd behavior of subatomic particles is just as expected.

In this holgraphic memory system, it is the state of particles that holds the information. The state of one particle doesn’t tell us much, but the combined states of all the particles within a system projects its holographic image, which equals the current reality of that system.

jim
