Quantum Theory and the Paranormal

I believe that in order to understand the "paranormal",we must first try to understand the normal.
And we have no idea!!
In relation to Quantum theory,Niels Bohr once stated,"Anybody who is not shocked by Quantum theory has not understood it".
And he was right,it is very very strange.
Basically we can come to four assumptions,
Your conciousness affects the behaviour of subatomic particles,
Particles move backwards as well as forwards in time and can be in all possible locations simultaneously,
The Universe is splitting every Planck-time(E-43 seconds)into billions of parallel universes,
The Universe is connected with faster than light transfers of information.
It seems reality is stranger than fiction.

The best thing I can recommend everyone do, is watch this video: http://youtu.be/JkxieS-6WuA

Gives you a basic understanding of dimensions in M-Theory, which really helps you understand the behavior of particles that seem to defy our logic.

But yes, Jaxer, I agree. I think a majority of paranormal things can be explained using quantum mechanics. In fact, seeing a ghost isn't half as bizarre as quantum mechanics could get. In quantum mechanics, you could randomly morph into a bucket of frogs, in more than one place, before randomly exploding and having your frog guts splash against...then they disappear abruptly and you are eating doughnuts with Abraham Lincoln. You can't explain it without sounding very very high.

Brilliant..as usual!!

Personally speaking,a yacht in the Caribbean,an audience with J.F.K. ,Einstein and Plato would suffice..!!

Nice link by the way!!

It amazes me how science struggle to understand what the sages and mystics have always known.

Sages and mystics are all charlatans!!

There is a book on Amazon called The Conscious Ghost and it explains the afterlife as waves of energy that communicate with us a s our own thoughts are waves of energy. It's cool stuff.

Never heard of it before, but it looks interesting:



Wish they had it on kindle!

Nice article,ok maybe that comment was slightly ignorant of me.
There are no sages or mystics today though,or are there?
Maybe you would come under that classification?

Oh, I'd definitely classify myself as a mystic. Definitely not a scientist. Particles are too tiny and minute for my taste. They may be easier to see, but I think that is because of schooling more so than the brain's natural inclination to follow the wave instead.

I think in order to make new discoveries,you must have your mind open to many disciplines.
Sometimes my left brain gets the upper hand,but I just tell him to be quiet and imagine!!

As one who studies science, I could point out a million ways that nature occurs in waves, possibly even the most fundamental quanta. I've studied waves, their variability, the calculus behind them. I've studied how they move through mediums at light speed or less, how they flux and bend and influence other waves... I know about ocean waves, radio waves, waves on a gravel road. I know about waves of space/time, waves of string theory, waves of convection, electricity...

Science has a problem, and its problem is the very source of its power. Everything must be measurable. Everything. Which means, though subject to change, most of what it has to say is very accurate. Irrefutable (though again...subject to change).

Do I have a sense of spirituality? Absolutely. One who studies physics cannot be without a sense of...awe, confusion, humility. When I think about how the human mind can influence outcomes of probability, change physiology of a friend at a distance....I'm absolutely humbled. The problem is...as scientists....we are measuring these things. Doing analysis and meta-analysis on reports and studies over the last fifty years.

We don't understand it, or how it works. Because, as I stated, everything is measured. Which means when it comes to the unknown...we lack a foresight and intuition that a more liberated mind would feel. I can't explain these phenomena, only measure them. It is a fundamental flaw in the school of science that we don't include the advice or speculation of those who are trained observers of the paranormal/spiritual/supernatural.

I'm lucky in that my career doesn't depend on my blog posts or opinions. I can freely explore things. In all honesty, I feel that we are on the edge of a mass revelation. The mystics and shamans of the world will lead the charge. Behind them...an army of scientists with data to back them up.

Science has proven that there is no god, Science is now proving that the human brain may be the ultimate creation of the big bang.It looks like The big bang not only created the universe it created God to Science is indeed a wonderful thing.

Science has NOT proven there is no god! No scientist worth their salt would ever say that!

What HAVE we concluded? That, perhaps, the world took several billion years to form. That, perhaps, water doesn't spontaneously turn into wine.

No school of science has disproved the existence of god. Why? Because it is a fools errand. A god is an omnipotent being...we couldn't possibly begin to disprove or prove it exists. A god can exist and NOT exist at the same time. It exists outside of our logic. Don't ever say "science has proven that there is no god", because we haven't.

There are some people who assume consciousness is a massively powerful creative engine in the quantum world. This could turn out to be true, but it is too vague right now. We need more data and studies and more information about fundamental particles/forces.

All of you understand that The Big Bang isn't the beginning, right? What scientists did was rewind the clock. Since we are expanding....it would seem all the galaxies and clusters came from a single central point. We can rewind it very very far back....to fractions of a second. At that point...we are fairly certain a gigantic explosion is happening.

But can we rewind ALL the way? To the very moment it all started? Nope. We can't. For all we know, an oreo cookie exploded. When we go back that far...with all that matter and energy....our laws of physics don't work. So we just kinda assume..."well...we know it done blewed up."

But how did the actual STUFF get there to blow up? That is the question, my friends. And try as we might...all we can do is speculate. But once we start understanding particles a little better...we might unlock the answer.

Have to agree with the "Lev" on this one again!It is beyond our capabilities to either prove or disprove that an entity which we call God actually exists.What happened before the big bang??
Dinner and a few cocktails??

Theoretically, it is possible. I think one of the outstanding ideas about the big bang is that there are "dimensional filaments" of a kind that overlapped, and by doing so, sprouted up a probability wave of different initial conditions.... (my brain melts at this point).

So, somewhere, when two people clinked their glasses together over dinner.... Probably lobster on penne, garnished with fresh basil and puttanesca.

Right when those glasses clinked...our universe was created. Or...when someone had a rather spontaneous and impressive bout of flatulence. Who knows?
