I think Consciousness creates reality and this Consciousness can be found on a subatomic and classical level.
Theory of Subatomic Consciousness
I know Scientist like Stephen Hawking and David Deutsch know everything but I feel things like Philosophy and Metaphysics are very
important in this day and age and questions about life and consciousness still need to be asked. In this paper I will ask and try to answer the
questions what is consciousness and what is life? I propose that consciousness starts on a subatomic level and what we label "particles" are the seeds
of consciousness and self consciousness evolves overtime as we go from subatomic to classical. I will also show the striking similarities between
consciousness and waves packets of probabilty.
When it comes to the philosophy that governs much of science today, it's called Determinsm which is born from what I call a Materialist religion.
Determinism in the context of science means that we're biological machines and every aspect of our lives can be Determined by the Laws of Physics.
Einstein thought the Laws of Physics would allow him to "read the mind of God." Stephen Hawking knows there isn't any life after death and we're just
the sum of our materialistic parts. Hawking said in his book "The Grand Design" that Philosophy is dead and what was considered the realm of
Philosophy is now the domain of science. (1) I don't agree with this notion. What Hawking and others are doing is turning Determinism into another ism
like Catholicism or Judaism. Science can't answer the question as to why because the why is left up to the interpretation of the Observer. This is
because the universe is governed by probability and this disturbed Einstein and he asked the famous question "God does not play dice" (2) Let me give
you an example:
When a Police Officer arrives at the scene of an accident he has to use a higher faculty called reason in order to arrive at an interpretation of the
evidence. So he may take statements from 5 eyewitnesses of the accident but he will get 5 different interpretations as to what occurred and how it
occurred. His job is to go over the statements and the scene of the accident and then use reason to reach a conclusion as to what most likely
occurred. In our Court systems we use this same reason to come to a conclusion of guilty or not guilty based on reasonable doubt.
We also use this reason in science and this is especially important when it comes to things like Philosophy and Metaphysics. In science you will have
different theories and different interpretations of scientific discoveries. Let's look at Hawking Radiation. This is still a theory so there's
different interpretations about what Hawking Radiation means in the context of physics and some say Hawking Radiation doesn't exist and Hawking is
wrong but Hawking will say science has all the answers when science hasn't even come to agreement about Hawking Radiation or even if it exists. What
about Quantum Loop Gravity? What about Many Worlds Interpretation? What about M-Theory or the Holographic Universe? There's questions on top of
questions when it comes to science yet Stephen Hawking says with conviction that science has the answers so Philosophy is dead.
The job of Philosophy and Metaphysics is to look at these scientific theories and discoveries and apply reason as to how these things relate to
questions like what is life or what is consciousness. So the Philosopher is no different than the Police Officer or the Jury member. What Hawking and
others want to do is remove reason from science and replace it with Determinism and this is faulty logic in it's purest form. Reason is one of the
things that make us human. Now lets look at how Quantum Mechanics points to a Conscious Universe.
First off, Quantum Mechanics and things like Particle Physics start off with a faulty premise called Wave/Particle duality. There's no such thing as a
particle. Scienctist will say that the wave packet can behave like a particle but the Uncertainty Principle tells us that it isn't a particle. The
Uncertainty Principle says the more you know the position of the "particle" the more you will be uncertain about it's position and vice versa. Does
this sound like a particle to you? You can't pin down the position because this "particle" is in constant motion. This tells you it's not a particle
but a wave at all times. Let me give you an example to illustrate my point.
Let's look at Ocean waves. At certain points Ocean waves become stronger while other parts of the waves are weaker. If you were to measure a strong
point of the Ocean waves you wouldn't call these strong points particles because they are still be waves at these stronger points. This is the same
with these wave packets of probability. When a measurement occurs, it's just the wave packet becomes stronger and concentrated at the point of
measurement based on how you measure it not that the wave has magically turned into a particle. Again, there's no such thing as a particle and
Planck's Constant also tells us this because at Planck's Constant, space, time and the laws of physics break down.
First let's talk about the Observer and the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. The Copenhagen Interpretation tells us the Observer causes
the wave function to collapse. Many Physicist hated this because the Observer is hard to define and the Observer was to metaphysical. So scientist
have been trying to kill the Observer for years. The Copenhagen Interpretation tells us the Observer causes the wave packet of Probabilities to
"collapse" to one point or one measurement. The way materialist in science get around this is the Many Worlds Interpretation. MWI just replaces an
unknown God with unknown universes. Physicist will tell you we can't detect these universes and we may never be able to detect them but they exist.
This sounds a lot like the faith that some of them ridicule. Let's talk about why they like MWI and why it's silly and then we'll discuss the Observer
collapsing the wave function.
Many Physicist love MWI but it's a pipe dream. Basically we're biological machines and we don't make any decisions. Everything we do including are
choices is determined by the laws of physics in these parallel universes. So in order to avoid the Observer they say there has to be a physical
universe for everything that doesn't happen in our universe. So nobody is making a choice, these universes are making the choices for us. Just think
of how silly this sounds. Let's look at an example.
Let's say I get up in the morning, turn on the TV and watch Family Feud. First I didn't make the choice to wake up at that time. I got up because
another version of me in a parallel universe woke up at a different time. Now I can go on for days about how many different universes it would take
for me just to turn on Family Feud so we will just stick with the show as an example.
There has to be a universe where I watched the show for 5 minutes then I turn it off.
There has to be another universe where I watched the show for 10 minutes then I turned it off.
There has to be a universe where I watched for 15 minutes and then I went to get something to eat.
There has to be a universe where I watched for 15 minutes but I didn't go and get something to eat.
Think about all the foods in the refrigerator that will each have to have there seperate universe because I'm not making the choice to grab an apple
the universe is making that choice. It get's very silly. For every cable channel there has to be a universe. Many Physicist will accept something like
this in order to get away from the Observer because as soon as we make a choice without the help of a bunch of parallel universes then they have to
ask questions about consciousness and what's the Observer. Even when they can't answer questions or things can't be explained via their materialist
interpretation, they have faith that their materialism is the answer.
How does the Observer cause the wave function to collapse? The answer is Consciousness. Let me give you an example of Classical wave function
Let's say I'm dating two females, Stacey and Anne. They find out about each other and now I have a probability wave of 3 choices. First, I can pick
Stacey. Secondly, I can pick Anne and third I can say neither and leave them both. When I pick Stacey the probability wave will collapse on that
choice and a reality where I'm dating Stacey is measured and observed. This same thing occurs on on a subatomic level. Via an exchange of information
what we call a subatomic particle collapses to one probable state. So consciousness creates reality on a subatomic level and a classical level. At
places like the LHC and Fermi Lab we're having an exchange of information and we're finding out how the subatomic realm constructed reality. On a
subatomic level they create universes and on a classical level we create cities and civilization. We're all apart of the same consciousness. This
Consciousness creates reality by giving meaning to information in a high state of entropy. Here's an example:
Let's say you have a rock and a stick. You tell a friend if the stick is sideways and the rock is below it in the driveway, I'm home so come to the
door. If the stick is straight up and down and the rock is on the right side of the stick, then I'm not home so come back later. The Mind has created
information. It has taken items in a higher state of entropy and reduced them to a lower state of entropy to convey a message. This is how
civilizations and cities are built. We build these things via an information exchange and reason. The Consciousness of the universe does the same
thing on a subatomic level. So on a subatomic level, what we call subatomic particles builds a universe and on a classicial level we use this same
information exchange and reason to build civilization, tribes, cities and more.
Consciousness creates reality. The Computer was a conscious idea before it was constructed. The TV was a conscious idea before it was constructed. If
I sit here and I have the concious idea to walk across the street to the store and grab a bag of chips, that measured event will have occurred because
consciousness caused the event to be measured and observed.
When you look at things like non locality, it can be tied to things like memory, twin telepathy, ESP, remote viewing and more. When what we call
subatomic particles become entangled, they remember the position of their entangled pair. The memory on a subatomic level is more vivid and pure than
the memory on a classical level because of decoherence. So our memories are not as vivid and fuzzy but it's just non locality on a classical level.
Things like Psi are also an extension of non locality.
I think all that exist is Consciousness and massless light. Consciousness creates reality from this sea of light. Consciousness gives this massless
light meaning via information exchainge the same way we can turn a tree into a log cabin and make it a home. The information to turn trees into a log
cabin is not found in the tree but with Consciousness which is the human mind. Just like the information of an electron or proton is not found in the
electron or proton but Consciousness gives it meaning via information exchange.
Humans are this same subatomic consciousness on a classical level and in a state of decoherence.
The universe is a construct of Consciousness which manifests itself on a subatomic level as well as a classical level.
