Essay Abstract

In quantum theories of consciousness, it is suggested that consciousness is a fundamental property of the universe. Our physical universe appeared by the phase-like transition of the energy waves. There are three stages of energies - before 10 dimensional universe – (10-7) dimensional flat universe – then closed universe (as like “Gas – Vapor - Liquid"). Strictly maintaining two stages folded and unfolded. Our physical universe actually unfolded from 10-dimensions but it comprehended 4-dimensionally. It was shown in my article “THE COMPLEX MODEL OF THE QUANTUM UNIVERSE” that the energy densities of two phases are directly proportional [i.e. as ε_1(t) µ e(t)] which indicates that the large or small matter energy density in the vapor phase (so called nothing) changes to the large or small matter energy density in the liquid phase (4-dimensional Einstein’s universe) and hence it is found, an important fact, that the existence of discrete structure in the universe, ranging from galaxies to super-clusters. The human brain and its mental aspects are associated with classical brain physiology and are also part of a quantum physical universe. We consider the whole universe being multi-dimensional. We consider the universe having (4+D)–...........so on. We may assumed that the extra-dimensions ‘D’ are associated with a mental-consciousness or that of the individual mind-consciousness is (partly) an expression of a universal mind-consciousness through holonomic communication with quantum fields. “Consciousness” created by the electromagnetic forces in the framework of SU(6) ´ U(1) whereas “Mind” created by the framework of SU(2) ´ U(1).

The brain or parts of the brain are conceived as an interference hologram of incoming data and already existing data (a “personal universe”) which equivalent to the subject’s memory.

Besides our essay, you are another who happens to believe that there is consciousness level at the level of the cosmos.nature itself. When our thought processes have a gap, it is part of time open to cosmic consciousness to interact withindividual consciousness. Einstein attributed his unique ideas to come to him from outside his thinking processes. He was disciplined enough mind wise to note such ideas for implementation using the tools available to him, otherwise such ideas could disappear soon there after! Kindly visit our essay and comment most critically on our presentation there! Thanks

Dear Dr. Narayan

I have read your article that is very interesting for me.

The consensus arises from the fact that humans do not fully understand or agree upon the nature of knowledge or ontology.

I think that consensus might arise from some strange space that people may never understand. It means that matter including elementary particles was created by consensus or under control as well as governing all things in the Universe. Roughly speaking, consensus might be a fundamental reality as well as even atoms and molecules have their consensus through which interacting all things in the Universe without dependence on a distance. This idea would lead us to think very general extraordinary interaction and space, which people heard to understand.

Dear Dr. Narayan,

Having read your research article, I will tell you that I am taking time to reflect on what I have just read.

I am blown away by the idea that atoms make choices. As a astrophysicist, I noticed that behaviour in a couple of papers (earlier 2014) in the called “cosmic-string”, a filamentary structure have been invoked in scenarios for galaxy form.

Galaxy filaments really exits, see the video from European Southern Observatory:

https://www.eso.org/public/videos/eso0941a/

The part of you article Comparison between Robot Brain and Human Brain is really outstanding.

Your experiments incite debate and stimulate though. You present data from an unconventional perspective.

I am looking forward to reading your next article.

Consciousness is considered as a fundamental property of the universe in quantum theories of consciousness. We consider our physical universe as appeared by the phase-like transition of the energy waves, unfolded from 10 dimensions. The human brain and its mental aspects are associated with classical brain physiology and are also part of a quantum physical universe. We consider the whole universe being multi-dimensional, of (4 + D)-dimensional Friedmann-Robertson-Walker-type (FRW), with complex scale factor “R + i RI”, where “R” is the scale factor corresponding to the usual 4-dimensional universe, and “i RI” is that of D-dimensional space-time. It is found that for D = 6 (i.e. in 10 dimensions), the Wheeler-DeWitt equation is symmetric under the exchange RI ↔ R. Mathematically, when D = 6, it is RI = R and the physical universe starts. The universe starts with the symmetry breaking of group SU(11). We assume that the extra-dimensions “D” are associated with a mental-consciousness or that of the individual mind-consciousness is (partly) an expression of a universal mind-consciousness through holonomic communication with quantum fields. “Consciousness” is created by the electromagnetic force in the framework of SU(6) U(1), whereas “mind” is created by the framework of SU(2)  U(1). The human brain is conceived as an interfacing organ that not only produces mind and consciousness, but also receives information. The brain or parts of it are conceived as an “interference hologram” of incoming data and already existing ones (a “personal universe”), equivalent to the subject’s memory. If properly analyzed, information about the outer world can be distilled, with the analyzer being cerebral electrophysiology.

Key Words: Mind, Consciuosness, Electromagnetic Force, Universe, Group Theory, Extra Dimensions & Mathematical Modelling.

Quantum physics indicates that consciousness is related to the awareness that an electron appears to show in the wave/particle duality; but the electron behaves differently when being observed by a human. This may indicate that the electron will change its behaviour/reality depending on whether or not is observed, as if it would aware that is being observed. This awareness is very similar (if not the same) as human awareness and may be related to the same consciousness. Thus consciousness seems to work silently for the formation of our universe and then behaves like entanglement.

Consciousness may be, therefore, a non-material entity capable of independent, eternal existence, and not a property, but in some sense may be used as property. It can remain localized in the human brain and interact with it, and thereby, control the activities of the human body.

Whenever the electron's wave function collapses, experiences as the OBE (Out of Body Experience) (Figure 4) and NDE (Near Death Experience) end, the person returns to their physical body and her/his perception of reality is similar to the collapsing of the wave function in the double slit experiment in quantum physics [21-23]. During OBE and NDE, consciousness can leave the brain and go into an independent floating existence outside the human body where it can travel independent of space-time, similar to the entangled electron.

How does the “I” or “self” or the perceived wholeness of one’s world emerge from a system consisting of so many parts, billions of neurons? What creates the “oneness” of thought processes? What creates the individuality and “self”? What creates feelings, free will, and creativity?

A possible solution is by considering a complete total body as an entity with the combination of two different characters of electromagnetic wave functions produced in two different phases by the symmetry breaking of SU(11) and SU(5).

We study with a new conception beyond the standard model physics and about the formation of biological molecules/atoms.
