Quantum Mind Reading -- Adam Brown
Could we create a quantum experiment that could predict what a person will do, without simulating their consciousness? Physicist Adam Brown argues that a classic quantum "bomb tester" experiment, proposed in the 1990s, could be modified to do just that.

Mathematics is a way to reconstruct all of the experimental data so that skilled engineers can use it to build useful things like rockets, computers, cellphones, etc.

The Planck action quanta is intended to show that gravity fields can be created artificially by using the quantum entanglement between two photons. I remember a time when scientists and layperson alike looked forward to the day that anti-gravity machines would be discovered. All you need is the experiment to show that a...


Math gives us a way to predict outcomes from precursors just like religion does as well. Classical outcomes all have knowable precursors, but quantum outcomes can come from precursor superpositions that are not further knowable. Therefore, the irrational quantum universe has unknowable mysteries just like religion as opposed to the rational classical universe.

The singularities of black holes and Planck action quanta are simply artifacts of space and time. There is no sense to what is...


Hi Steve,

I posted a brilliant explanation of my Planck action quanta, and it disappeared and is lost in the database! Angels are weeping!

But let me address this collapse of the wavefunction idea with my model. My model says that Planck action quanta begin their existence at a point; they come from the Planck scale, expand at the speed of light. Inevitably, they will encounter particles, electric charges, energy, all of which requires an Action quanta because all of these...
