Quantum mechanics suggest that consciousness arises in a measurement-explanatory feedback loop between our experiences and the accommodation-model we hold in our memory. If correct, what we see in front of our nose is not the real external world, nor even a mental representation of it, but rather an accommodation to external stimulation expressed in our private space-object vocabulary. The capabilities of our mental display and its vocabulary are limited by our evolutionary development and so is the world we believe to be living in. The very stake-your-life-on-it reality we live and die by will change as our mental capability evolves.
I will show how the psychological feeling of one-ness with the universe is actually an internal experience produced by an awareness of ones internal accommodation-model. This model includes both ones body and what are normally taken to be external objects. I will
argue that the feelings of love and harmony associated with one-ness are due to the recognition that even ones enemies are in fact only characters who are part of us and play their threatening roles for our own good.
I will show that one cannot logically become aware of anything outside ourselves and that the architecture of quantum theory describes the thought process of a conscious being. Entanglement is therefore largely attributed to the one-ness of our internal structure and the collapse of the wave function akin to the collapse of our knowledge of alternative possibilities when a measurement reveals the actuality of a situation. Knowing that this observer knowledge interpretation of quantum theory is discredited I will show that Bell’s theorem cannot be violated by any recorded measurement result and a flaw in the interpretation of the Aspect experiments is responsible for the popular opinion.

It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory. Looking back, that video was the starting point of my self-awakening journey.
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
The most famous case study in science, prior to Freud, was published in 1728 in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society by the English surgeon William Cheselden, who attended Newton in his final illness.
Quantum physics tells us that the state of a subatomic particle can only be known when the state of the particle is measured
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
Quantum particles, the foundation of the universe, are like naughty children playing catch me if you can with scientists in a game with no rules.

Is math an invention of the human brain? Or does math exist in some abstract world, with humans merely discovering its truths? The debate has been raging since the time of the ancient Greeks.
When we ask ourselves why we think time exists, most of us would say: because we see everything changing, always.
From Aristotle on, we have been conditioned to believe we have only five senses, even after science has established that we could have thousands.

In a world where scientific theories often sound bizarre and counter to everyday intuition, and where a wide variety of nonsense aspires to be recognized as “scientific,” it’s important to be able to separate science from non-science—

According to Ervin Laszlo, the coherence of the atom and the galaxies is the same coherence that keeps living cells together, cooperating to form life. When a complex system made up of many interacting parts is operating, sometimes an unexpected jump to

Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
In our everyday life, time flows in one direction—forward. When you put a frozen pizza in the hot oven, the pizza heats up. When you hit a baseball, it flies over the wall (if you’re having a good day at bat). When you knock a coffee mug off a table...
