The mere mention of “quantum consciousness” makes most physicists cringe, as the phrase seems to evoke the vague, insipid musings of a New Age guru. But if a new hypothesis proves to be correct, quantum effects might indeed play some role in human cognition.
Time now for a very cute video about a rather terrible prospect—the very grim possibility of the universe spawning a lethal bubble of pure vacuum that expands in all directions at the speed of light.
In the world of quantum, infinitesimally small particles, weird and often logic-defying behaviors abound. Perhaps the strangest of these is the idea of superposition, in which objects can exist simultaneously in two or more seemingly counterintuitive states.
The late Robert Anton Wilson ( January 18, 1932(1932-01-18) – January 11, 2007, age 72) was the author that woke me up at an early age to how the world really works. R.A.W.’s main thesis is that your perception of reality ultimately controls reality. While that is an oversimplification of his ideas, he’s one of those prolific writers that you really must spend some time understanding. I think that everyone can get something out of reading Robert Anton Wilson. As an introduction, I’ve decided to post a documentary film entitled: Maybe Logic. If you enjoy the film below, please consider purchasing it, or some of his books. Trust me, it’s worth it.
