On the Failures of Physics with Regard to Consciousness
(c) Robert Neil Boyd

This is a simplified discussion of some of the failures of physics regarding Consciousness. (I think Dean Radin will appreciate this.)

Let us start by examining the EPR experiment in terms of consciousness. One important understanding about EPR, is that the purpose of Bell's inequality, which was developed with EPR in mind, was to show that any local hidden variable theory which allows for any kind of independent disturbance of a system from outside the system, must imply a failure of quantum mechanics.

Such a failure has occurred in the form of the results of Radin, Jahn, and Dunne at PEAR, which show with a greater statistical basis than that used to prove QM, that systems are indeed disturbed from outside of the system, by Consciousness.

With regard to EPR correlations of spin of particle A and particle B, there will be a set of hidden variables, lambda, for example, due to Consciousness (represented here as a and b), such that

A = A(a, mu_a, lambda_A, lambda)
and
B = B(b, mu_b, lambda_B, lambda)

We can then define the averages of A and B. Since |A = A(a, mu_a, lambda_a, lambda)| = |B = B(b, mu_b, lambda_b, lambda)| = 1 it follows that |Abar(a, lambda_A, lambda)| is < = 1 and |Bbar(b, lambda_B, lambda| is < = 1

From this we can consider the various experimental results for various orientations of our spin detection apparatus relative to various locations of observers a and b. Results from such experiments will result in non-locality, as far as I can see, where consciousness has been involved in the experiment. Similar pictures are found in the math which accompanies the results of the experiments done over the years at PEAR. These results clearly show the effects and influences of the consciousness on various non-linear and probabilistic systems.

Simply put, quantum physics does not address consciousness, while it is empirical fact that consciousness has measurable effects on physical systems. The same can be said with regard to relativity theory. Relativity fails to describe or predict any event which involves consciousness.

Since the entire cosmos is either consciousness, or an emanation of some manner of consciousness, or resulting from some manner of consciousness, it is clear that the standard physics fail to address the majority of observable reality, due to catastrophic oversimplifications which exclude consciousness in all regards.

The present physics treatments of reality have basis wherein nothing whatsoever has any manner of consciousness, including people. Clearly, this is wrong, because obviously the writer and the reader, at least, are conscious. A physics which does not address consciousness is similar to attempting to move an automobile that does not have an engine. It will move, but it will take a great deal of human effort to get such an automobile anywhere other than where it is presently located. "Better to leave it where it is, and admire it" seems to be the present view of many in the sciences.

I think that the solution is to put an engine into the automobile. While this in itself is an enormous task, at least I'm working on it. I want to go for a drive.
