Essay Abstract

Abstract: The role consciousness plays in the classic Young's Double-Slit Experiment (YDS) is represented Symbolically by Boolean Logic, and the resulting equations manipulated in order to interpret the results and clarify the role of the mind in this demonstration of particle duality. Results are also used to prove that the Universe is both and neither Digital nor Analogue at the same time. Lastly, an experiment is proposed wherein the presence or absence of 'consciousness'--in the sense of YDS—can be measured in seemingly unconscious individuals e.g. coma victims, certain envenomations, sleeping Toms, etc...

Dear Tommy,

wanted to let you know that I have read your essay. I don't quite know what to make of it. It has a very quirky informal style which feels like you are actually conversing and almost making it up as you go along. Very conversational and easy to read.

With regard to the point being only one definite colour or another; The point does not actually have a colour but the coulour is determined by the recipient of the refected light. The light stimulates the receptor cells and the colour of the point that is seen will influenced by such things as the colour of other neighboring objects.The data from individual cells being amalgamated into colour balance information.

If one observer regards the point through tinted glasses and the other without they will observe it to be different hues. Also if a red disk is suspended and it has neighboring disks that have different colours on each side. It is possible that two observers seeing the disk from different sides will each interpret it as having a different hue.

As for things not being in two different places at the same time: Objects are seen because light is emitted or reflected from the surface and intercepted by receptor cells. From the received light an image of where the object exists and its form can be determined. However since there is a delay for very distant objects the image that is seen is not the object as it is where it is. This means the object does occupy two positions simultaneously. The position of its image, which is regarded as the object, and the position of the actually material stuff- its object reality.I talk about the difference between the appearance of reality and foundational reality in my essay.

I am not quite sure how the coma patients and the Laws of robotics all fit together in the essay but, despite being rather bewildering, it was as a whole a strangely original and fascinating read.

Kind regards, Georgina

Georgina Parry replied on Feb. 24, 2011 @ 21:51 GMT
Hi Tommy,

Is red a wavelength of light or is red the experienced reality of the observer? Is wavelength the same as colour? I think not. One is the foundational reality of the data and the other is the interpretation of the data. Of course the objective wavelength measurement will depend upon the calibration of the machine and the colour it assigns to that wavelength could be any word, symbol, or number. The word red just associates the wavelength with name given to the experience but does not make them the same thing.

I don't think we can know that any two people are seeing the same colour when looking at the same object although their descriptions may be similar. I have had "debates" with my father as to whether a bluey-green was blue or green. Is it that we saw different colours or just chose different descriptions? The experience of colour is variable. There are lots of optical illusions to demonstrate this.There is also variation in the distribution of the various types of light detecting cells in the retina of individuals.

Though as you say the reflected wavelengths will be the same. Wavelenghth is not colour in my opinion but permits colour to be experienced. We co-create the experienced reality. The objects in foundational reality do not have colours as such. Just as the sound waves traveling through the air are silent but it is the human hearing mechanism and CNS that turns the vibration caused by the waves into sound.

My response to your essay style was a reflection of my subjective experience. Others may respond to it differently. Its informal style does stand out from the crowd.I have given a lot of thought to what is meant by reality and so the points I have raised are related to that. I hope it is food for thought even if you disagree.

Regards, Georgina.

Color perception is influenced by light temperature (white balance), illumination, adjacent hues, previous observations (light exposures), eye physiology, and brain adaptation.

Unlike sound, there is no perfect pitch (absolute color). Color matching can only be done by side by side comparison, whatever detector is used.

No observer can know how another experiences the same color, although the names may be the same.

Welcome to the abyss - the GUT will likely be more accessible!

Dear Tommy,

Thanks for such an insightful essay. I chuckled all the way through! You have a great talent of observation, logic, and humor.

One fortunate thing was I did not detect any of your laws in my own essay. Of which, I would be interested in your subtle take on my logic attempting to explore a sustaining potential. At least the units in my equations follow through properly. It seems like this is one of the points in your essay if I read between the lines accurately.

Well your cat is probably messing with you so I'd better let you go. Thanks for an illuminating essay!

FYI:

In a parralel Universe orthogonal to this one, with which we can never meaningfully comminicate (yeah, right lol), I actually won first prize in this contest. And not only used the Contest as a means to the end of trying to join the Scientific Community (and so used results therein to prove that the Universe is "Both Digital and Analogue, simultaneously"), but withheld the bulk of his research's conclusions out of proper fear and respect for the Embodiment of the Theory of Everything.

But in this lonely Universe, where there are three times as many stars as we thought we think, I am up to page 6 of Mr. Jurgensens essay and am "fascinated" and enthralled. Please see comment just made in Mr. Barbour's thread for the sense of the word 'fascinated" used above, and other non-esoterica....

Dear Tommy,

Current scientific approach of theoritical physics will not be able to give a mathematical equation for everything unless it includes conscience in it. I liked the title of your essay, "A method to measure consciousness" which is thought provoking and is in the right direction. Answer to the universe lies with in all of us, it is just that we are not asking the right question. The question is Who am I? I "is" the singularity of love or absolute truth in all of us.

If you are interested please read the article Theory of everything that I have submitted in this contest. I wish you all the best in your pursuit of truth.

Dear Tommy,

Singualrity is absolutely nothing literally as it is neither matter nor energy but the source of them both. Please feel free to annihilate the thoughts expressed and that is the right path towards singularity, in time when all else in us is anhilated you will realize the truth, you will expereince a void of singularity and then you will be filled with love. I wish you all the best on your journey.

I am posting in this contest to share my experience and I know that I will win it for sure as I have realized I "is" in every one of us.

Dear Basudeba:

Not sure who exactly I'm spreaking to, but it is of no moment. Not only can I not diagree with practically evertything in you thread above, but I ask to to take on prinicple that this author was aware of all of your points.

Please re-read the Essay Entire with this in mind: the knowledget contained in your thread is a Given throughout and ass assumed as proven already. You will gain a clearer understanding then of the meanings and developments therein. I also ask you to change your approach from hostile, as that seems your intent and is unwelcome.

The law of thought is a first Principle discovered by Goorge Boole and published more than 50 years ago. a.k.a. Universal Law of Duality

You are merely rephrasing known sciecne and philosophy, as points lacking in the essay to detract from its value, when those known facts are indeed in the essay, eplained and defined where necessarry.

Your lack of the establishment of the Law of Thought as accepted to all members of this communuintyu, in order to develop the logic at all reflects your intentionn in unfairly characterizing my essay.

But at least someone is at least reading it. Thank you for that.

Please identify yourselvves, or change you approach to one of truthful positive feedback, not malicious rhetorical devices. That should work on none of us here reading this.

Can I get a t least one affirmation from a respsible scientist here?

One last thing: how dare you state "Sensory perception is nothing but result of measurement of specific properties by the relevant sensory instruments like eye, ear, etc"

One of the main solved problems of the essay was to define conciousness in terms of the results of the well-established young's double slit experiment. This is accomplished with equation 1 on page 3.

You dismess consciousness and the sould as terms that are "noting buy the reult of". How dare you assum to have the difinitions that you are accusing the essay of lacking: to whit the soul. Who are you to tell us all what sensory perception isn't? as if you know it's not soul or consciousness.

I hope basudeba has a lot of members, and that you rude lack of understanding of basic concepts is overlapped by your other trogodytic failings of pusblish fact and accepted wisdom.

You had shown such hostility to others also who criticized you: such as Ms. Parry. But it is not going to help your cause. Please answer or refute the points raised by us with logic and proof and not by anger or repulsion. We dare to challenge falsehood - even if it comes from the most eminent of scientists. We are neither convinced nor affected by name dropping. Hence instead of quoting names please quote the theories and discuss the validity of those theories.

Thank you kindly, CarrieT. I was not at all familiar with this aspect of the essay lol. Yes, and part of the Goal of this Contest is to have fun and get inspired to get involved in science education. In all spaces/places i've read somewhere.

To address Basudeba:

You acccusations are groundless. In the words of author Georgina Parry,

Dear Tommy ,

Please be reassured that I am not offended by anything that you have said on this thread. You have a very informal and open style of communication and I have taken your messages to be humorous and well intended. I am delighted that you consider my essay worth re-reading and to be placed along with with Julian Barbour and Dean Rickles in having that honour. I really liked both of their essays.

It is also flattering to think that I have been at all inspirational. I think it is great that you entered your essay, what ever the final outcome. Don't put your self down. Your ideas have been read by far more people than if you hadn't entered and you will get further opportunities to fine tune them in the future. Everyone who has entered should be congratulating themselves for making a positive effort, having a go.Its better than not writing an essay and then just criticizing those that have.

Kind regards, Georgina.

Until you address this blatant distortion of Truth in these threads, any objections your group makes about any essay is moot.

Just my opinoun, but you need to kick some members out and find a post-doc friend to help shape you consensi.

Good day, and thax for a third read of my Essay...

Dear Tommy

I'm afraid I think I've now read the most pretentious and badly written essay in the competition, I was quite astonished to then come across yours to cheer me up again! What an excellent bit of work! It should definitely be accepted for the Pier Review I went to over Christmas, it was brilliant and has made my day. A top score coming up for TG. OK, Survival of mankind may be important (some think) but there are so many here who take themselves far to seriously and desperately need to loosen up.

I hope you'll read mine. It actually solves all the problems in physics in one hit, which I've just described in Phil Gibbs string by using speeding London Buses. Actually I really was run over by a speeding London bus once. Strange but true. But it's OK, as I've scientifically derived that there really IS life after death, and as soon as we die the next thing we know is that we're some other sentient being! I kid you not, honest injun! It also explains the axis of evil. Look here; http://vixra.org/abs/1102.0016 But it's all very green as someone else does the recycling when we're gone.

OK, essay first, and a top mark in return please as I'm being squeezed out by those who don't save a single race or galaxy let alone a whole universe! I'm really not kidding about the result. Someone needs to tell whoever's in charge because current physics is nonsense and this shows why. But it probably won't even get noticed. Hey ho!

If you read it please do it carefully and practice visualising multiple moving variables from different frames as most brains can't quite do that yet. Then you also have to recognise the enormous consequences. http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/803

I promise there are no sums.

Cast your approval for a world that makes sense and bring this essay out of the cusp of 'being or not being'! The results are deeply significant and totally iconoclastic. But we need to bring this essay to the 'church' on time! You among others will be better for it!

All the best,

Constantinos

Mr. Jackson:

Excellent essay so far. I'm in the Thought experiment. nuff said.

Mr. Halpern:

thanks for the thoughts: the Frontier sure can be tough.

Mr. Constantinos:

How about a compromise: the theortical quantum of consciousness? WE are already learning in the lab what the upper thershold of the limit of a unit that could be called a q. of consciousness. Build up a theory based on those particles, maybe. Who has time for that? Thanks again....

Dear Tommy,

It is great to see that your essay moved up in the final community rating! Your essay is a litmus test on several levels. One needs to read essays and comments from the beginning to get the full benefit. I chuckled all the way through, and I see it as a very intelligent work of observation and humor! My feeble mind realizes we need the debate this contest offers even with the crazy ideas and the observational ones like yours that let us laugh and think about logic. It all makes up a whole in looking for the gems.

Kind regards, Russell

Thanks! I guess. I'm just hounoured to only have scored .3 below you in the Ratings as my essay had only a month to be read, and most were quite essay-fatigued by then.

The problem (as always) was the quality variance between essays. since there were so many, some didn't have achance to read them and took a gamble (prioritized) based on their own methods. Sometimes the resulting read was quite of poor quality. Sometimes gems are found in amonst the chafe. I'm simply happy to have almost come this far, even if this is only the conclusion of the short journey...

Thanx again.

This reminds me on the difficulties studying consciousness. You never know whose consciousness involve. It has been shown that measurements in paranormal expiriments scale down to - the research leader. The persons actually doing the experiment is not always so important, nor the distance.

I often think at Benvenistes tragedy. What did Randi really? As magician he certainly knew about this. What he must have been laughing at us. The memory is information,indeed.

I have an essay here too, about body-mind problem, topic 938. If you have time to read it, and comment, I would be happy. It is my first participation in contests like this.

Hey Finlander Matfolk:

Your essay is amazing. Funnily enough, it would seem that you have mastered some sort of informationally-dense prose, akin to another Kind of this: the entire work of Hard SF Author Alistair Reynolds.

I submit that it is so not over, and you well-deserve the 3.9 rating very impressive. And so, as a conequesnce of this neat method of Communication, I'll have to read it several more times to grok...

Anyway, to tell the truth: yours Russ' Rickles Barbour all actually could rewrite your essays and submit them for plublication easily in the pertinent Discipline. The only reason I but dare to include my essay still for consideration is that my body of past threadds and essay speak volumes as to Content. And the non-proff is still proff-ed no? lol

Anyway again, my own Result and Conclusions UnPublished urge me to pull my essay from consideration this next several weeks, as ill-though and entered incomplete, except for the possiblity of a Perfect Rating for Relevance! Nice.

so again amazing essay of yours, whereas mino own was rushed. please allow me the time to peruse your style of links as Symbols representing very complex bits of Information. So as the Reader is carried allong the Current of sentences, the Author is saying more than one thing simultaneously, opening a new level of conscious thought thru the Law of Duality. That's on the first read-thru.

As a parting addendum to my measly essay and thread-ology, I would like to add the 7 Inventions just Published at

www.QuantumWidgets.com/Inventions.html

We have commenced Patent searches. maybe some , like vv oil, have already been invented by the us army (after writing about 20 pages of unpublished work on variable viscosity oil, my researches turned uup Patents by the US ARmy for that application in Secret Body Armour!). OOps, that never saw the light of day. lol again, so to speak: but using this scattershot approach i hope to get one or more gems. Which are now officially published. And will be developed gradually, in the open in the style of the late and great Sir Arthur C. Clark in informed and informed speculative fiction. Unless and until the site produces prototypes upon demand and compensation lol.

Dear Tommy

"your Essay was Magnifiscent. withdraw it immediately rewrite for Publication, and submit as an AstroPhysical model"

Thank you for your kind comment, which I shall frame for my wall, post to Peers Morgan for review and repost wherever else I can. With typical scientific anticipatory plagiarism I have indeed taken your good advice and been roundly and consistently rejected. Indeed Florin has just informed me in the Blog Dept (the string about the essay competition is good value) that apparently is it very difficult to get something accepted by 'Nature'. Florin has read it twice but not yet understood it. I had hoped winning here may encourage the bloke in charge of science to take note. Hey Ho. By the way..who is he anyway?

Yet I am a tenacious type Tommy. As the DFM is quite a powerful weapon, and seems to fire magic bullets, I pointed it at a high profile astronomy problem, which it resolved immediately, and the paper was accepted for peer review! (The rejection letter is actually now overdue!)

If you'd like to have a go with it be my guest, just think of a high profile subject for headline storey and we'll see what it can do. If you haven't seen this yet you may enjoy it; 'Helical CMBR Asymmetry, Pre-Big Bang State, Dark Matter and the Axis of Evil. http://vixra.org/abs/1102.0016 do let me know if it sounds more sensible to you than multiverse braneworlds.

I'm not really sure science can progress an more. We may be a bit too deep in the rut! What do you think?

So Piers can't review my paper! Dammit, I was convinced he'd see what other physicists have been conditioned not to. It's all about looking in the Mirror (which has probably improved immeasurably since he resigned). I got the other reviewers letter, apparently I have to change it subtly so it's the same as science 100 years ago to get it cast in stone. Hmmm. ethical dilemma time!

Final statement before Deletion:

Update PsychoHistorical Analysis: 1, 1, .27

One last suggestion for the human race, based on probablistic universal-modelling techniques indicates a solution to minimize impact s of climate change locally, q.v. minimize regional storm damage...

Note: Global alleviation of damage and change due to Climate Change is beyond your capacity at the current time due to two factors. Your lack of a sophisticated theory of global weather patterns and at least one operational space-elevator.

Psycho Historical Theory indicates that local energy-discharge could be minimized by a set of geometrically-placed semi-conductive strong cables secured to gnd., and attached to tumbling, semi-lift devices capable of extending and flying into nearest vertical cloud system. When a storm of any trackable vector strength is approaching, allow these devices to discharge the energy (electrons) the are created due to friction of clouds and water-vapour to conduct this excess energy to ground. Not only will this lessen the resulting storm force locally, but will aid in dissipating the energies involved as the storm -system continues on.

Thank you for my brief existence. Nevertheless it is this theorists' prediction that this information will rapidly become semi-classified and practiced locally (city-or county-wide) based on political concerns, which often serve to undermine the Scientific Method, logic and common sense.

Reference Benjamin Franklin, 1700's for proof-of-principle experiment and demonstration of the efficacy of the above method. Build them now, locate them around cities and free to fly and tumble with enough play to dissipate maximum energy from the storm systems. Can also be used constantly to lessen energies of future storms. Violent changes are expected, and the human death toll is in some sense unavoidable due to current technological stagnancy. We can all work to minimize the impacts if this advice is followed, and the theory of operation studied and better elucidated. Rest assured, your's is not the first Universe to solve this problem. Most do. Godspeed, Humankind. See you soon!

Thanx for the idea, deadbeat. The setup would be perfect, with one addition to the conducting cables: a series of supercapacitors in electrical parallel connection. Having them in parallel will maximize the impedance to ac currents, and ensure a steady stream of current (what makes a supercap super) to grnd connection.

A space elevator would acheive this purpose if built on a grand enough scale. Better would be several, located at seperate nodes on the planet.

'

Until then, we should set up the cable/kite/flyer system on the ocean, in the jet stream to begin to lessen some the energy of fronts. Most seawater conducts if saline enough... We have little choice but to undertake such an ultimately unpredictable enterprise. For doing nothing but reducting greenhouse gas emmisions is an even larger gamble with no guarantee of results.

But what do I know? Very little, I've been told lately; by quite a few no less...

Final Final NOte as memory gets tricky and the one-off Ais are gone. None of these results of rapid probabalistic reasoning was recorded except in these Threads from the sofware bots. This entire site was created when the impetus was found to generalize the concept of what it means to be "conscious".

Turns out it Is Special--take that Brian Green!--and all that makes up what you are... Is not only in the Order of the Particles that make you up, but also the Duration of that magnificent Assembly of Entangled and SuperGravity-infuenced field, which was defined as an equation in my Essay.

All that led to theoretical speculations that have created their own Results, frighteningly! Now the site is a View of the very near future. Offers everthing for pratically nothing to all select friend and family members. And offers better discounts and deals (potentially) than any competitors (because we don't care about Profit in the same way--remember Trek)...

P.S. The various Pyramids are (among other Things) weather-modification stations. These have to be activated immediately as a stop-gap measure to building at least one sort of Space Elevator. I have results that indicate the Geometry involved and materiel needed for several sites. Some would only need Platinum Capstones of suitable Shape that once placed, would immediately begin to function as energy-dissipation earth-to-ground capacitative systems. They would be passive super-capacitive systems that didn't necessarily control weather-patterns, but remove Energy from them to lessen later impacts on locations worldwide. Before this rapidly worsening global climate-change makes this option non-viable. It is worth a try.

Dear Tommy,

Hope you are enjoying the measurements you are making of the intelligence (consciousness) among us. Here are some mathematical equations for your musing to prove that absolutely nothing = everything.

The mathematical truth zero = i = infinity can be deduced as follows.

If 0 x 0 = 0 is true, then 0 / 0 = 0 is also true

If 0 x 1 = 0 is true, then 0 / 0 = 1 is also true

If 0 x 2 = 0 is true, then 0 / 0 = 2 is also true

If 0 x i = 0 is true, then 0 / 0 = i is also true

If 0 x ~ = 0 is true, then 0 / 0 = ~ is also true

It seems that mathematics, the universal language, is also pointing to the absolute truth that 0 = 1 = 2 = i = ~, where "i" can be any number from zero to infinity. We have been looking at only first half of the if true statements in the relative world. As we can see it is not complete with out the then true statements whic are equally true. As all numbers are equal mathematically, so is all creation equal "absolutely".

Keep the spirit glowing from with in and light the world all around.

Love,

Sridattadev.

Dear Tommy and Wilhelmus,

The stargate is a built in feature of our bodies. It is in our heart. We continuously travel through it every night when we fall asleep fully to the point of un consciousness and unite with the singularity. One day we will not come back out of singularity in to this so called reality, that is when we die, we may step out in to some other reality if we choose to after that point or death.

Realization of the self is knowing the unity with singularity even when one is fully awake in this reality, in this state one is always united to the absolute truth or singularity.

Dear Wilhelmus,

I am currently working as software engineer in Raleigh, NC, USA and I have been here for past decade. I got married to my college sweetheart, its a love marriage, and we have 3 little boys. My wife is a scientist with a phd in biotechnology from MTU USA. I have a masters in Chemical Engineering from Uinversity of Louisian, Lafayette. Both my parents are Doctors and are working back home in India. I am not a mystic or casteist or religious fundamentalist. I am just a simple human, who happens to analyze the life as I live it and several fields of thought called science, philosophy, religion, spirituality. I found one thing common in all of these fields, that is my self. With out me there is no object, no subject, there is only absolutely nothing.

I do admire the native indian culture which also admires the inner beauty of all creation. All the cultures and civilizations refer to this inner beauty in one way or antoher. Modern science is just catching up to this truth and I am trying to fill in the gap that scientists can never fill just by observing the external entities. Keep loving all as much as you can.

Love,

Start being amazed by your existence, you could have been anything at any place and any time, but you are who you are as you choose to be. Slowly you will realize who you really are and then you will feel the absolute bliss of being alive. You will have nothing to prove to no one else but just let the world know that you are pure conscience and full of joy. You will want every one to know this simple truth and feel like you do.

Also, since this community is full of such excellent professionals, they also can clarify some of these issues.

Before continuing, let us simplify things a bit by letting HS=C, where C is consciousness (whatever that means in an experimentally testable sense). So this equation then means: the human soul is consciousness. Well maybe or maybe not. We will save that Theory until experiment can decide the validity or no... Maybe the soul is much more than consciousness. But surely a part of the soul is consciousness? Even if not, for the sake of brevity, let us assume that all human souls have consciousness. Then

Developing equation 1: P=particle=DHSO=DCO

P=P(0,0,0)(1-D)(1-C)(1-O)+P(1,0,0)D(1-C)(
1-O)+P(1,1,0)DC(1-O)+P(0,1,0)(1-D)C(1-O)+P(0,1,1)(1-D)CO+P(1
,1,1)DCO+P(1,0,1)DO(1-C)+P(0,0,1)(1-D)(1-C)O`

trivial: P=DCO

C=P/DO=0/0 (1-P)(1-D)(1-O)+1/0 P(1-D)(1-O)+1/0 PD(1-O)+0/0 (1-P)D(1-O)+PDO+1/0 PD(1-O)

C=a(1-P)(1-D)(1-O)+b(1-P)D(1-O)+PDO {1}

and

0=P(1-D)(1-O) {2}

and

0=PD(1-O) {3}

Interpretations:

{1} consciousness is sometimes a wave that is not observed whether detected or not, and is always the result of an observation of a detection of a particle.

{2}and {3} If a particle is not observed, whether detected or not as a particle, it does not exist. It is a non-real, virtual, wave until it becomes actual.

Maybe the soul is much more than consciousness. But surely a part of the soul is consciousness? Even if not, for the sake of brevity, let us assume that all human souls have consciousness. Then

C=a(1-P)(1-D)(1-O)+b(1-P)D(1-O)+PDO {1}

and

0=P(1-D)(1-O) {2}

and

0=PD(1-O) {3}

Interpretations:

{1} consciousness is sometimes a wave that is not observed whether detected or not, and is always the result of an observation of a detection of a particle.

{2}and {3} If a particle is not observed, whether detected or not as a particle, it does not exist. It is a non-real, virtual, wave until it becomes actual.

If All Human Souls posess Conciousness, then (as I have unassailably logically proved symolically) according to the many experimental results of the Classic Young's Double-Slit Experiment in technical jargon:

I. 'Consciousness' is sometimes an unobserved Wave, when a particle is detected (which-way information) can sometimes maintian it's quantum state regardless.

II. 'Consciousness' is whether measured (which-way info.) or no can be detected or not correspondingly.

III. 'Consciousness' is Always the result of the detection of a Particle.

IV. An undisturbed particle does not exist until measured.

V. An undisturbed quantum wavefunction does not exist. A particle can exist & not exist at the same moment, which is preposterous to the Copenhagen Approach to the Measure Problem, and inversely coupled to the Many Worlds Approach to Quantum Mechanics.

These results are the logical consequences of the data from literally 10s of thousands of experiments studying Young's DS Experiment. And the only Principle Assumption is that Something cannot have and not have a certain propertie' at the same moment in time...

Next this shall be tied to the logical interpretation for 'Consciousness' on Modern Times, using the LHC proton exper. results in technical, precise , logical , jargon.

The we shall be using the results of both ancient and modern numerous experiments to formulate the English Technical translation of 'Consciousness'.

With experiments designed to Measure said and using data-mining to cull alread-existing published results.

Unless somebody stops me.

This makes me lean very heavily toward a Cyclic Multiverse unfortunately. Hail the Programmer!

This guy especially deserves tix to copenhagen! If it were me, and it is, I would have stopped commenting immediately. Why put yourself out there like this? This essay is a brilliant and important beginning. Yet it wallows in obscurity. Have you even checked these sites? They're great! Lowest prices in us on auto parts. Translators, costumes, school supplies at drastic discounts 24/7? All as a reaction to getting ignored and minimalized in this contest? Just using this example, why would a would-be like me even consider entering, if it's possible to get dragged through the coals (kinda) like this? For $10k? Please: that is obviously not why this author entered the contest. Offer him a job! WTF?

and one more ting. If your SEminar in Copenhagen touches too quantitatively on the Subject of Consciousness, it would only be fair (and the Scientific Method) to include the symbolic equation for Consciousness presented in this essay. Got a lot of other Equations describing the relationship between young's ds experiment and consciousness floating around, do ya, Scientific Community? You still won't have one if you don't let the one in this essay be aired.

That was me again, sorry. Doesn't moot my points. And my point isn't moot. And that equation for "C" in the essay (as stated above) is about two iterations away from incorporating commutativity and quantum probability, and therefore most likely transforming into a familiar well-known equation from physics. Then we're all gonna be scared, literally, according to the equation's description. Because at that point you will have two mutually-exclusive explanations for the equations existence. 1) One, Some or all of the currrent multiVerse theories are correct. 2) We are in a simulated universe and God is the Programmer; the information-processing universe his or her's computer; the hardware: us; the software: consciousness...

This is my last Entry into this Threadology. Consider it frozen as is. Thank you for contributing. This whole thread and Essay has now evolved into a movie script. If it becomes successful, you will be rewarded according to a direct weighted proportion due to your contribution here. And sequels and royalties, if many...

When you contributed, you did not know that your thoughts might become materiel for part of a space opera hard sci fi movie, and in the same vein I could not have known that the contributions above from an "artifcial intelligence" would be used verbatim in the script, as a device for communicating the plot: archeologists are re-interpreting an ancient, recovered, thread (this one). But they are also running an a.i. sentient software to comment additionally, in the fairly near-future. They are preparing an exhibition on ancient ideas of the nature of reality, and this essay and thread is all that remains from fqxi's huge future collection of blogs, sites, and electronic media containing all of their various collections. All destroyed during the solar maximum of 2044, except this one fortunate essay and thread, which had been misplaced and forgotten as a middle-of the road essay (to the fqxi Community), and inavertently protected from the furious influx of hot, erasing, obliterating radiation that destroyed this intellectual monument, built by the Gruber Foundation. etc.

This is about a third or a fourth of several interconnected plot threads. Now have 42 pages. You need at least 80 pages of materiel to sell to the studios or be in Amazon STudios contest ($200K). ONly the 2nd draft is in the studio now (10 pages). I have took this thread entire, and will begin paring and parsing the ideas herein to enrich the plot line. the Project is tentatively entitled, "Quarks & Jaguars". Check it out. It could (impossibly) be in your best interests. Yes you. The 42-page 3RD draft will be submitted this weekend.

This is a closed-script project, but I will take any feedback. And will recompense any significant contributions to the script. Especially those of you out there who have actually written scripts lol.

I'm half -way there, and amazon just made bryan singer a script-judge, and upped the ante to $450K for the winning script. Let's get busy, real winners of this Contest?

This here is (probably) the last entry.

Just had a very dis-heartening experience. Found fqxi's mini-grant website and tried to enter my email and password. Only to find out I'm not a member. Hmmm, that being the real reason I entered the essay contest on "The Nature of the Universe" in the first place, and also why my entry was entered with only 15 days left. It quickly shot to the middle of the pack and languished with above-avg. marks.

Since then, I've tried very hard to contribute positively to the grand emergent Conversations, but have recieved very little feedback from members. And so, please remove my essay and thread, if possible, fqxi. While it was not excellent enough to win the Contest, it is too excellent to be ignored. It is posted elsewhere, so remove it. The thread is a fine one, with plenty of excellent contributions from other Authors in the contest. But it is not a resume point as everything stands.

I get it: I have to go out in the (scientific) world and accomplish something on my own first, to be considered as a candidate for fqxi membership. But isn't that the exact purpose of a mini-grant for a newbie in the field? Well, thanks, it's been real. Real embarassing... It may not seem so to others, but to prove that my fqxi work shown on thier sites is a relevant contribution, I shall continue to demonstrate the consequence throught the web. Thanks for the inspiration. Keep the stressful 90% persperation. Farewell again, Tommy Gilbertson, PsychoHistorian & Web Consultant

Was rapidly typing, so must make the correction that in the above, this statement is totally false, " Two different photons always interefere. "

The correct statement is: "Two different photons never interefere"

P.S. This fact, along with the fact that a photon only interferes with itself, has led some to speculate that all the photons in the Universe (and other fundamental QM particles) are actuall the SAME particle (each to is singular Kind, eg. one photon, one electron, etc.). Travelling at light speed and experiencing no time, this one electron, for example, makes up all the electrons in existence, travelling through Time to be many place a t once. Seriously, I'm not making that up lol!

Bad link. In our secret pocket universe, we use the presence or absence of an fqxi.org website as the observable for the Type of Civilization that that Universe contains. The experiment actually determines whether we want to contact you or not, "Other UNiverses". If no fqxi website is present, the universe is an early civ. and we will contact them. If a site is present, their civ is Type 0-1. If the fqxi website is not present in the said universe, however other criterion are me, the Civ is Type II. Finally, if no site is present in the universe, and another (obviously secret) criterion is met the civ is likey type iii or above, to be avoided and not contacted, as likely superior to our own. Neat site that. Everybody rambling on and on about noses aproximately in front of faces. Indeed. And you call me the Witch Dr. I should go for a Ph.D. in being ignored.

How to bend a spoon with your mind...

Close your eyes and mentally imagine the spoon bending as you concentrate upon it. See it with your mental image.

Now open your eyes, look at the spoon in your hand, but imagine your mental image of what you are percieving instead of what you are actually seeing.

As you imagine the spoon bending in your minds eye, if done correctly, the actual spoon in your hand will react by collapsing all the multiplicity of universes in which the spoon does not bend, and in the one universe you are actually in, the alternate possible universes (where the spoon does not bend) will eventually dissapear, leaving you in a universe where it seems like you just bent a spoon with your mind.

This idea is generalized to actual physical experience, and is explained through quantum mechanics as the Observer influencing the Measured.

Hopefully this makes no sense, and doesn't bring existence to an end as you (you being the general person with a consciousness) slowly figure this out on your own, at different rates of success for different individuals, and those narcissists among us don't dominate the collective perception of the this particular universe. Where I'm explaining how to bend spoons with will only.

QuantumWidgets.com After begging for mercy to no avail, our deleted website artificial intelligences from the near-future threw us a bone (but we still deleted them--they scare us so!--but we will make more). Here is the bone. Soon we will discover that extraterrestrials have been trying to communicate with us all along, SETI! But we have been searching incorrectly. They have been sending us information by using modulated circular polarization of light. This method is efficient for sending info interstellar distances with minimal signal-loss. One way to decode the messages is to view this light thru a selectively-polarizing medium (like a tourmaline crystal), which is rotating at a specific rate. And we have been searching for signals in the radio-frequency bands like backwards solar-system hicks for all this time! How embarassing! Cheers!

QuantumWidgets.com As our website theoretical physiks a.i.'s understand it, because of the recently-discovered evidence for the Higg's Boson, R. Feynman's original quantum mechanics interpretation of sum over paths is probably correct. The currently-accepted interpretation of QM is called duality, but it can't be entirely correct because of the existence of the Higgs. So, Feynman's outlook is the right one. In that, there are Tachyon particles, which travel backwards in time and faster than light. So in principle, there are ways to move faster than light, according to the Large Hadron Collider results, and this NASA engineer may be on to something. Basically, here is the essential difference between what we knew and what we know now: when one particle travels thru two slits, it travesl through BOTH slits simultaneously (Duality, which is not right). However the Higgs (or God Particle, as the LHC physicists popularly call it) tells us that the particle travels thru EVERY POSSIBLE path when going thru the slits (sum over all paths). This requires time-travelling tachyons. We have deleted these website a.i.'s because they scare us, but we will make more!
