Dreams are Quantum Information

Consciousness is more than computation! See also: – Electromagnetic theories of consciousness – Can Science and Religion be Integrated? – We are living in a highly negentropic Universe – Where are our thoughts written? – Quantum Consciousness and Quantum Mind

We will probably never be able to put a cat in a quantum superposition

Holding a object in two different quantum position in the same time (superposition) is easy for small particles, photons, electrons or even carbon or oxygen molecules. But a cat of 4 kg is a whole other world. Where is the limit between a particle and a cat? Some scientist may believe that it depends on …

Earthquake light

An earthquake light is an unusual luminous aerial phenomenon that reportedly appears in the sky at or near areas of tectonic stress, seismic activity, or volcanic eruptions. Once commonly challenged, it was not until photographs were taken during the Matsushiro earthquake swarm in Nagano, Japan (which occurred from 1965 through 1967) that the seismology community …

Impostor syndrome

The impostor syndrome, sometimes called impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome, is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments. Despite external evidence of their competence, those with the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, …

Time is an emergent phenomenon that is a side effect of quantum entanglement

Emergence is a popular idea in science. In particular, physicists have recently become excited about the idea that gravity is an emergent phenomenon. So it’s a relatively small step to think that time may emerge in a similar way. This is an elegant and powerful idea. It suggests that time is an emergent phenomenon that …

Cosmic Source of Consciousness

In the past people believed that the earth is the center of the universe (geocentricism). This hasn’t changed much today, because such a view has it’s origin in the egocentric mind. Many people today still believe that our mind is inside our brain. But our brain needs external stimuli in order to work. Total isolation …

Entanglement Due to Wormhole Between Particles

Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe that quantum entanglement might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another. Source: ‘Spooky action’ builds a wormhole between ‘entangled’ particles

Is there any hope in cryonics to succeed?

Cryonics (from Greek κρύος kryos- meaning icy cold) is the low-temperature preservation of humans who cannot be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future. Cryonics procedures ideally begin within minutes of cardiac arrest, and use cryoprotectants to prevent ice formation during cryopreservation. However, the idea …
