QUANTUM REALITY AND CONSCIOUSNESs
© Copyright 2022, Edward R. Close
The proposition that consciousness might directly affect reality at the quantum level is controversial to say the least. Most mainstream scientists at the present time are skeptical of this possibility because of the materialistic metaphysical belief prevalent in the scientific community. This is not a criticism of science; it is just a statement of fact. Scientists who have religious or spiritual beliefs often keep their work and their faith separate, or even hide their religious beliefs for perfectly legitimate and practical reasons related to maintaining their standing in their careers and society. However, in fact, there is only one reality.
The proper attitude of a scientist is one of open-minded skepticism. Scientists who have not had personal spiritual experiences, NDEs, OBEs, or involvement in consciousness research producing experimental data suggesting a real mind-matter interface, are likely to be agnostic. This attitude is completely appropriate for a scientist, but it should not be confused with atheism. Agnosticism is an attitude of healthy skepticism. Atheism is not healthy skepticism; it is a negative belief that is based on a lack of evidence and a judgmental attitude toward the beliefs and/or knowledge held by others.
Does attitude have an effect on the reality we experience? Yes, of course. There is ample evidence of this. But can individual consciousness have a direct effect on the nature of reality? Most mainstream scientists are very skeptical of this, and some flatly say no, even while accepting the fact that the observer is part of the experiment in quantum experiments like the double-slit and delayed-choice experiments. A deeper look into negative assertions like this usually reveals that they are based on materialistic metaphysical beliefs, not empirical evidence. Atheism has no scientific basis, and rushing to negative conclusions consistent with atheism, instead of maintaining the proper agnostic skepticism, is wrong, but understandably human.
This brings me to the point of the importance of the discovery of proof that a measurable non-physical component (called gimmel by Dr. Vernon Neppe and me) is a necessary component of reality at the quantum level for there to be stable subatomic objects and any subsequent complex macrostructure. This discovery and the development of the quantum calculus (CoDD) with TRUE analysis makes it possible to investigate the interaction of consciousness and manifest reality at the quantum level. TRUE analysis presents opportunities to find out whether there are practical methods that may be used to manifest positive effects on the logical patterns of reality based on science, not fantasy.
Before we can continue investigating quantum reality to determine whether or not there are practical ways to consciously manifest the reality we want to experience, we need to know as much as possible about what we are actually dealing with physically, mentally, and spiritually. In this regard, light is an important physical phenomenon that connects the observable aspects of reality and human consciousness. For this reason, it is important to analyze the nature of light and understand how it relates to consciousness and reality at the quantum level. In these posts, my intention is to provide a scientific basis for understanding these connections and perhaps even to find a way that we may affect positive changes in reality through direct conscious intent at the quantum level.
Light, Consciousness, and Reality
Max Planck and Albert Einstein provided two thirds of the triadic theoretical basis of the TDVP model of reality by establishing the principles of relativity and quantum physics. The three paradigm-shifting discoveries of these two great physicists were 1) the quantization of mass and energy, 2) the constancy of the speed of light, and 3) the hyper-dimensionality of physical reality. TDVP is simply the integration of quantum physics, relativity, and consciousness research in a logical multi-dimensional model that expands the theoretical framework of science to include the three basic aspects of consciousness: individual, transpersonal, and primary.
The TDVP model completes the description the innate triadic nature of reality by expanding the physical models of quantum and relativistic physics to include consciousness. In the TDVP model, the measurable contents of objective reality are mass, energy and non-physical gimmel, comprising the triadic contents of the triadic dimensions of space, time, and consciousness.
Light is the single most important physical phenomenon illuminating and connecting the content, extent, and intent of reality. As physical beings, we are able to perceive light at the macro level as a local phenomenon through our physical senses, but light is also a universal and non-local phenomenon, permeating and connecting all of the triadic aspects of reality at every level. The current scientific understanding of the nature of light and its functioning at the quantum and cosmological levels of reality is superficial and simplistic, but that is where we must start.
The familiar sinusoidal-curve, two-dimensional representation of light, depicting wavelength, amplitude, and frequency in one-dimensional time and two-dimensional space, is incomplete and misleading, because space, time, and light are subtle multi-dimensional phenomena that cannot be fully represented in one- or two-dimensional models. In order to investigate the nature of light in the framework of TDVP, it is necessary to understand the basic volumetric principles of quantum dimensionometry.
The first principle of quantum dimensionometry is: No dimensional domain with less than three orthogonal dimensions can contain quantized volumes of mass, energy, and gimmel. This should be obvious, since a point, line, or area has no volume.
The second principle of quantum dimensionometry, an expression of the mathematical invariance of dimensional domains, is: When expanding the awareness of dimensional domains sequentially, from domains with 1 through 9 dimensions, in the process of dimensional extrapolation, after moving through each triad of mutually orthogonal dimensions, i.e., after 3, 6, and 9 dimensions, the numerical value of the representative quantum equivalence unit of measurement changes in form to the next mathematical root of unity, as determined by application of the Pythagorean theorem. Quantum volumetric measurements in the 3-dimensional domain are integers, in the 4- through 6-dimensional domains they are integer multiples of the square-root of minus one, and in the 7- through 9-dimensional domains they are integer multiples of complex roots of unity. As a result, equations describing quantized reality in the 3- through 9-dimensional domains must be expressed and solved as Diophantine equations, where only integer solutions are relevant to the reality experienced by finite conscious beings.
The third principle of quantum dimensionometry is: All experiences of finite space, time, and consciousness occur within the expanded 9-dimensional domain. This has to be true, because when awareness of reality is expanded beyond the 9-dimensional domain, the units of measurement are multiples of hyper-complex roots of unity. The multipliers, however, cannot be integers since, if they were, no projections into the higher dimensional domains would result. Therefore, while reality is infinite, all of finite reality at any point in planetary time, is describable within a 9-D model, and higher dimensional domains are probably infinitely continuous, not quantized.
Applying TDVP analysis to the phenomenon we call light, using the quantum calculus (CoDD) with its quantum equivalence unit (TRUE), provides a much more detailed understanding of the nature and function of electromagnetic radiation. In this post, I will try to explain this mode of analysis verbally, avoiding mathematical notation and jargon as much as possible. Let’s start with the concept of constant light speed.
Because I want to reach readers who do not necessarily have much training in the physical sciences, I need to explain that in physics, the terms speed and velocity are not synonymous. Speed is defined as the rate of motion of an object relative to the conscious observer in units of distance traveled per unit of time, making it a binary concept, while velocity is a triadic concept, consisting of the distance traveled, the time it took, and the direction of travel relative to a specific inertial reference frame. You also need to know that inertial reference frames are defined as arbitrary systems of coordinates used for measurement of the extent and content of real phenomena. An inertial reference frame is a geometrical framework established in relation to an arbitrary zero-point that is stationary and unaccelerated relative to the conscious observer constructing it.
A unique characteristic of electromagnetic radiation, of which visible light is a minor component, is its speed (not its velocity) is always constant, i.e., the same, relative to its source and all conscious observers regardless of their relative motions. This means that there is no universally preferred reference frame for observation because physical observation is dependent on the propagation and reception of light in the consciousness of an observer. Thus, the second principle of relativity (there is no preferred reference frame) is a direct result of the first principle of relativity (light speed constancy). This is just one example of how the basic principles of reality are interrelated.
While the math is well beyond the scope of this post, the reader should be able to visualize the vibratory energy of light as a 3-D phenomenon, expanding at a constant rate of speed in all directions through the 3-, 6-, & 9-D nested domain of space, time, and consciousness. For the speed of expansion to be constant, relative to the inertial reference frames of all possible conscious observers, the measurements of space, time, mass, and energy must vary by specific amounts for each observer, in the exact mathematically predictable way determined by the well-known Lorenz transformation equations. The only variable parameters in these determinations are the observers’ velocities relative to the light source.
Thus, it appears that constant light speed implies something very surprising about the nature of the reality we experience. What it implies is certainly counter-intuitive, and it profoundly changes the way we must think about and look at reality. The most basic measurable aspects of physical reality: space, time, matter, and energy, are not independent of the consciousness of the observer in the way that we have assumed based on the limited input of our physical senses. The physical universe can no longer be considered to be the largely unaffected background of human events that we have assumed it to be.
This surprising implication of light-speed constancy has been hidden from us as conscious human observers by the limitations of the organs of physical sensing through which we observe reality. Now that we know that the physical universe and consciousness are intimately related aspects of one eternal self-consistent and self-referential system of space, time, matter, energy, and consciousness that we call reality, the question becomes how can we use this knowledge to manage our existence in a way that will effectively enhance our appreciation and enjoyment of existence? Specifically, does this knowledge provide a way for us to affect positive changes at the quantum level?
Because this discussion contains complex concepts that must be pondered, understood, and thoroughly digested to form a sound basis for subsequent discussions about spiritual consciousness expansion, I will pause here.
