Here's a contribution to the study of consciousness that may serve to open up
some new lines of inquiry.
According to Malcolm Brown in a New York Times article (Tuesday, July 22,
1997), Dr. Nicolas Gisin of the University of Geneva in a recent experiment
has demonstrated that paired particles at a great distance apart are in
communication with each other and make identical decisions instantaneously
when faced with a similar choice. This implies that the communication between
the particles traveled faster than the speed of light. Although no mention
was made that such particles may be conscious, the scientific effect of this
experiment is to disprove Einstein's contention that action at a distance is
not possible, and to bolster the quantum theory of indeterminacy, particle
However, the experiment may have proven much more than is apparent at first
glance. Here is one analysis of the results that may possibly lead us to a
new theory of consciousness as well as to a further understanding of the
mechanisms of conscious awareness (that is partially explained by my ABC*
theory) and may add a new wrinkle linking classical physics with quantum
To speculate on the results of the experiment;
If particles can communicate with each other to make intelligent choices, then
particles must be (in some sense) aware, intelligent and therefore, conscious
- (but, do they think? Who knows? And at what level?:-)
In any event, the following conditions seem to make sense:
The twin particles are
1. identical (on all levels of physical and quantum space, along with all
interpenetrating and interactive fields of which the particles consist, and
within which they exist).
2. to some degree, aware (of themselves - perhaps not singularly, but as a
unity with all other identical particles).
3. intelligent (enough to make a choice).
4. conscious (of their direction of travel, position, spin, etc. - with
relation to their surrounding environment).
5. act alike (since they always make the same identical choice when each is
faced with similarly configured alternative paths).
According to the paper written by EinsteIn, Podolsky and Rosen, (denying the
possibility of what they called, "spooky action at a distance"); These so
called "entangled particles" would have acted "solely in accordance with their
common antecedents coupled with hidden local factors." This conclusion could
easily be justified by the above conditions.
i.e. We could assume that such "identical, aware, conscious, and intelligent"
particles (with no conflicting learned conceptions given them by misinformed
humans ;-) would always choose the same "correct path" determined by the
"local" conditions faced. Therefore, this experiment could prove that
Einstein et al were correct in that "action at a distance" - assuming that
quantum fields are in the same spatial order (or medium) as the physical
fields - is impossible.
On the other hand, if these assumptions were not so, then Einstein's crowd
would be proven wrong. The question then, is; Does the transfer of
information between consciousness (awareness), mind and body necessarily
"move" solely through "physical" (metric) space? However, we've yet to prove
that quantum fields (or consciousness and mental fields, for that matter, are
physical - in the same sense that the brain and its electromagnetic fields are
"physical". (i.e. Measurable or detectable using ordinary "physical"
instrumentation, by existing in the same spacial dimension or medium.) They
may have "material" or "substantial" forms and particles within their own
order of vibrational existence - to which, ordinary physical matter may be
entirely transparent... And, these particles, by their very nature, could
travel at a multiple of ordinary light velocity.
My guess is that they are not "physical" (in the above sense). Also, the laws
pertaining to their material existences would be quite different...
Therefore, informational energy could be transferred through these higher
order fields at speeds much in excess of the speed of sidereal light (which is
physical) without violating the physical laws of the lower (metric) field
order - due to these more subtle fields having, essentially and necessarily,
higher orders of frequency and wave length than sidereal light (including the
entire EM spectrum. [See: ABC notes]). This would account for the apparent
"action at a distance" predicted by quantum theory... But, which could also
be considered as pre-determined and pre-conditioned local action by classical
An explanation that could satisfy both possibilities would be based on the
assumption that consciousness was and is coincident and complementary with the
root of matter before and since the initial manifestation of the present
universe, and is, therefore, ubiquitous, along with all physical matter
(represented by E=MC^2), throughout the present sidereal universe (as well as
with the "objective" element(als) within all of its precursive higher order
universes, or inter-(or, intra-spatial coenergetic fields)... And that, in
contrast to the more or less temporary states of objective physical forms (and
all meta-physical forms in these higher order fields), the subjective field of
consciousness is eternal, non-material, non temporal, formless, and linked
with matter through a series of transcendent intermediate fields of
progressively lower orders of vibrational energy - called, from a scientific
standpoint, "quantum fields", or in ABC theory, "astromagnetic fields" -
which, essentially, represent the hierarchy of all the energy fields used by,
or through which are communicated, our intuition, memory, thought, will or
focused intent, life or vital energies, bioform models, morphogenetic
evolutionary processes, etc.
It is assumed, as a basis of ABC theory, that while the fundamental laws of
cause and effect, periodicity, etc. do not change within these fields, the
application and effects of these laws do... And, fundamental "particles" act
differently on either side of the inter field barriers - accounting for
"indeterminacy" within each field order as well as "particle entanglement".
The only things that don't change (if they can be considered "things"), is the
fundamental subjective nature of consciousness and its attributes of awareness
and intelligence as well as their linkages and pathways to objecive, physical
matter through the non-physical (but still material, having both a particulate
and wave nature) field of mind.
The field of mind extending from its highest to lowest frequency level, then,
could easily serve as the dual-natured intermediate repository of both
permanent memory on the one hand, and volatile thought and imagination at the
It remains to be seen whether or not this seminal experiment of Dr. Gisin will
serve as the stepping stone to bring us to a new interdisciplinary dialogue
concerning the true nature of consciousness, and allow us to establish a new
basis for arriving at a synthesis of the "hard" and "easy" problems and,
ultimately, their resolution into one grand unified theory encompassing the
relationship between consciousness and matter, subject and object, emptiness
and fullness, immateriality and materiality, non-physical and physical, wave
and particle, attraction and repulsion, antiparticle and particle, antigravity
and gravity, God and Man, etc., etc., etc....
...Thus, once and for all resolving each of the paradoxes facing science,
religion and philosophy, and finally, ending the general run of humanity's
ignorance of the true nature of reality - while giving us an understanding of
the real meaning of the word "religion" - as its Latin root ligere (to bind or
yoke) implies... A linking (yoking ergo yoga) of our "self consciousness" to
our fundamental common origin - the rootless root of "universal
consciousness"... (The a priori of our present physical universe) - whose
"fundamental laws" of 1. Action and reaction (karma); 2. Periodicity (cycles);
3. Cause and effect ("as you sow, so you reap") governs all action in all
levels of our individual being - throughout eternity. This SELF existance (as
expressed through our individual ABC/AM and EM fields linked to the
corresponding universal fields) extends throughout time (or at least until the
universe resolves itself into its initial timeless state) - from our
relatively permanent self consciousness and higher mind level - to the
transient lower mind fields focused within and around impermanent physical
What say you all?
