“In some unusual approach an electron or a photon [or any other elementary particle] appears to ‘know’ about modifications within the setting and seems to reply accordingly,” says physicist Danah Zohar.
A bunch on the Weizmann Institute in Israel has carried out a variation of the well-known “double-slit” experiment. They used electrons, as a substitute of photons, and noticed how the resultant interference sample (which signifies wave-like properties of the particle) dissipated the longer you watched the electrons undergo the slits. As a wave the electron passes by means of each slits concurrently but when, in accordance with E Buks, it “senses” that it’s being watched, the electron (as a particle) goes by means of just one path, diminishing the interference sample. Elementary particles (similar to photons and electrons) seem to own a sure diploma of “intelligence” and consciousness of the setting. Famend plasma and particle physicist, David Bohm, says “In some sense a rudimentary mind-like high quality is current even on the degree of particle physics. As we go to subtler ranges this mind-like high quality turns into stronger and extra developed.”
Consciousness seems to be as basic a property to elementary particles as properties that make it “matter” or a “bodily drive” (for instance, mass, spin and cost). And simply as mass, spin and cost differ from one particle to a different; it’s possible that completely different particles have completely different levels of consciousness.
Circumstances for Manifesting Consciousness
Bohm says that “a particle has a wealthy and complicated inside construction which may reply to data and direct it is self-motion accordingly”. That is extra evident in additional huge particles and Bose-Einstein condensates which behave as tremendous particles.
A single remoted particle would have some extent of consciousness (or consciousness of the setting). Nevertheless, low-energy and low-frequency elementary particles (as described at the moment within the physicists’ “Customary Mannequin”) simply lose their property of consciousness after they turn out to be entangled with different particles and decoherence sets-in. This state is analogous to the state of a demagnetized steel object. Though all the person atoms are in a way magnets, no magnetic fields are noticed. Nevertheless, as soon as the atoms within the steel object turn out to be aligned with their north and south poles pointing in the identical route they start to exhibit the property of magnetism.
In the identical approach, when teams of particles are in the identical quantum state, i.e. when they’re in a state of quantum coherence, the property of consciousness is exhibited. A state of an especially low diploma of consciousness (for sensible functions – no consciousness) is exhibited by inanimate matter at macroscopic scales in our extremely decoherent low-energy classical universe.
Therefore, elementary particles will exhibit their intrinsic diploma of consciousness when remoted or when a bunch of particles share the identical quantum state. Which means bulk matter in a non-coherent state is successfully unconscious. The research of acutely aware particles is known as “quantum metaphysics” by this writer.
In 1959, physicist Richard Feynman identified that each one the phrases written all through the historical past of the world could possibly be contained in a dice of fabric one tenth of a millimeter extensive – supplied these phrases have been written with atoms. Now, scientists have carried out simply that, creating an atomic-scale reminiscence by utilizing atoms of silicon instead of the 1s and 0s that computer systems use to retailer knowledge. Scientists on the College of Wisconsin at Madison have been capable of learn and write at room temperature to a reminiscence unit that makes use of a single atom to retailer a bit. The reminiscence density of this reminiscence unit is corresponding to the way in which nature shops knowledge in DNA molecules.
How a lot data can an atom retailer? Scientists have written the phrase “OPTICS” on a single atom, demonstrating the massive data capability that exists even in a person hydrogen atom. This was carried out by sending one in all its electrons right into a “Rydberg state”, during which it now not exists as a cloud of cost enshrouding the nucleus however as a substitute turns into a ‘wave packet’ that circles the atomic nucleus like a planet across the Solar. By making use of a collection of pulses a set of wave packets may be created that mix with one another like water waves and cancel one another out at particular locations to type patterns across the atom. Carlos Stroud of the College of Rochester and Michael Noel of the College of Virginia level out that an electron in an n=50 Rydberg state has 2,500 attainable states of angular momentum which may be mixed in numerous methods – evidencing the large potential for even elementary particles to retailer and transport huge quantities of data.
Can an individual’s reminiscence with all its visible, audio, tactile and different data be conveyed in a wave-particle? It’s outstanding that nevertheless sophisticated a wave, it may be described as a mixture of many easy sine waves of varied frequencies and amplitudes. That is how a complete orchestra may be heard from the one vibrating cone of a loud speaker. When switched on and off at irregular intervals, or modulated in depth or in frequency, waves can carry a considerable amount of data. The upper the frequency the better the quantity of data the wave might encode. Storing reminiscence in wave interference patterns is remarkably environment friendly, and would be capable of accommodate the vastness of human reminiscence. For instance, holographic encoding of wave-interference patterns would allow all the books within the US Library of Congress to suit onto a big sugar dice
The Bodily-Etheric Nucleus
Every refined physique has a nucleus – which metaphysicists Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant have referred to as a “everlasting particle”. Leadbeater calls the nucleus of the upper etheric double a “physical-etheric atom”. In line with Leadbeater and Besant, details about the related refined physique is saved on this particle (its composition, frequency, construction and associative reminiscences). On this approach the experiences that the refined physique has gone by means of in a specific universe are saved or are linked to this nucleus – which may be transferred extra simply to a different universe and physique by means of microscopic wormholes.
The particle is analogous to DNA within the biomolecular physique. DNA is known as a “bioparticle” within the medical literature and it shops or hyperlinks huge quantities of details about a specific life-form. Hindu metaphysics describes these particles or nuclei as “bindus” and Tibetan yoga “drops”.
The physical-etheric nucleus is transferred to larger power our bodies when the refined physique dies – serving the identical functions as a “black field” flight recorder in an airplane in preserving details about a specific life’s experiences. This nucleus can also be answerable for the life evaluate in a near-death expertise. In line with Besant, the everlasting particles are used to protect inside themselves as “powers of vibrations” (i.e. completely different frequencies and waveforms) the outcomes of all experiences by means of which they’ve handed. By the tip of 1 life within the bodily physique, the everlasting particle (or physical-etheric nucleus) would have saved up “innumerable powers of vibration” (i.e. a set of waveforms of various frequencies).
A character is just a “packet of self-organized data”. If this data may be transferred from one physique to a different that character “lives” on. Info saved within the physical-etheric nucleus permits the character and its related physical-etheric physique to be “reconstructed” or “resurrected” in an identical physical-etheric physique later – in a course of analogous to a teleportation. In line with plasma metaphysics, the physical-etheric physique gives an electromagnetic matrix which performs a vital position within the morphogenesis of the physical-biomolecular physique. This gives a foundation for reincarnation or a resurrection (relying on which faith interprets it).
The physical-etheric nucleus permits the switch of data from one physique (in a single universe) to a different physique (in one other or the identical universe) through the (bodily) loss of life course of. If not for this switch, the experiences within the bodily (3d) universe could also be troublesome to entry or reconstruct at a later date. The details about our self must be “uploaded” to a different “participant” (i.e. a physique) to proceed our private existence. The advances in Science recommend that the nuclei of the assorted refined our bodies can carry a big quantity of advanced holographic details about their corresponding our bodies and experiences.
As quantum physics has proven, elementary particles additionally behave as waves – relying on the experimental set-up. Bose-Einstein condensates can behave as tremendous particles – and subsequently additionally as waves. If a gasoline is cooled to a couple millionth of a level above absolute zero, the atoms lose their identification as particular person particles and behave as a single entity, a type of “tremendous atom” with traits much like a laser. They then tackle the weirdness of quantum objects – together with wave-particle duality and the flexibility to quantum-tunnel out from one place to a different. Aware particles can subsequently additionally propagate as waves.
The Aware Zero Level Area
Stuart Hameroff believes type of proto-consciousness is a basic characteristic of the universe as an entire and exists on the near-infinitesimal Planck scale. “May proto-conscious qualia merely exist within the empty area of the universe?” he asks.
Zohar says there is no such thing as a purpose in precept to disclaim that any construction, organic or in any other case, that contained a Bose-Einstein condensate would possibly possess the capability for consciousness. She argues that for there to be one built-in “self” one thing should account for the unity of mind states related to every component of an expertise. In a way the separate parts should turn out to be in-phase with one another. A Bose-Einstein condensate typifies this type of unity. She means that the mind has two interacting techniques: the coherent Bose-Einstein condensate related to consciousness, and the computer-like system of particular person neurons. In line with her, exercise noticed on the EEG could also be a bridge between the 2 – if both system is worked up, it could produce subject that acts on the opposite.
The zero level subject (or the quantum vacuum) itself may be thought of a Bose-Einstein condensate, stuffed with photons and different bosons of zero power. This arises from the commutation guidelines the place the sphere is quantized in accordance with Bose-Einstein statistics. This gives a foundation for a subject of consciousness that’s current in all places in our universe.
The Atman Area
In line with quantum electrodynamics, particles are thought of excitations in a subject. Therefore, all particles have fields related to them and all fields have particles related to them. Fields related to (acutely aware) tremendous particles would exhibit consciousness and clever conduct. Aware fields, like electromagnetic fields, wouldn’t have any type in the way in which bodily, tangible object has.
The varied elementary particles are available in strictly similar copies. One electron isn’t any completely different from another electron. In actual fact, Richard Feynmann (following-up on a comment by John Wheeler) speculated that each one the electrons we measure may very well be one and the identical electron.
We might name the acutely aware zero level subject the “atman subject”. Every individualized atman or “atman particle” may be thought of a basic unit of consciousness and an excitation within the atman subject. Every elementary atman particle is indistinguishable from one other. When the excitation subsides the particle disappears and is indistinguishable from the sphere.
