The quantum mind-body problem

The quantum mind–body problem refers to the philosophical discussions of the mind–body problem in the context of quantum mechanics.

Some interpretations of quantum mechanics posit a special role for consciousness in the process of quantum measurement

I am presenting you with an extensive work written by an academic at Princeton University. Within this work I also briefly describe my opinion as to how this problem may be better understood. You will find that I do this in paragraphs 5 and 6 of the attached pdf file. I feel that many laypersons may find this document is difficult to understand.

Is Quantum Mechanics Relevant To Understanding Consciousness?

The human mind can comprehend self-evident truth, but a rule-bound computer cannot

For readers with a science background I believe that you will enjoy reading this article written by a distinguished mathematician and physicist:

A Review of Shadows of the Mind by Roger Penrose.

Quote:

“The reader soon realizes, however, that Penrose’s larger goal is to point the way to a grand synthesis of classical physics, quantum physics and even neuropsychology. He begins his argument by slighting computers’ ability to mimic the thoughts of a mathematician. At first glance, computers might seem perfectly suited to this endeavor: after all, they were created to calculate. But Penrose points out that Alan M. Turing himself, the original champion of artificial intelligence, demonstrated that many mathematical problems are not susceptible to algorithmic analysis and resolution. The bounds of computability, Penrose says, are related to Godel’s theorem, which holds that any mathematical system always contains self-evident truths that cannot be formally proved by the system’s initial a)doms. The human mind can comprehend these truths, but a rule-bound computer cannot.”

Strong evidence that human heart transplants seem to change the personalities of recipients

An amazing story about a woman who was a heart transplant recipient and received a young man’s heart. She even started walking like a man afterwards

I quote from an online newspaper article as follows:

“So can elements of a person’s character – or even their soul – be transplanted along with a heart?  One woman who believes this to be the case is CLAIRE SYLVIA, a divorced mother of one. She was 47 and dying from a disease called primary pulmonary hypertension when, in 1988, she had a pioneering heart-lung transplant in America. She was given the organs of an 18-year-old boy who had been killed in a motorcycle accident near his home in Maine. Claire, a former professional dancer, then made an astonishing discovery: she seemed to be acquiring the characteristics, and cravings, of the donor.”

The Bohm interpretation of the mind-matter relationship

A physics essay written by Professor Basil J Hiley in respect to the Bohm holo-movement model of physics

I have developed an implicit/explicit theory in relationship to reality. The Bohm model of physics relates to the existence of an implicate and explicate phenomena being present within our 3D universe. Both these pairs of cosmic processes [Bohm’s and my own] are much the same except that my ideas relate to reality, i.e. beyond space-time. In my mind, brain, consciousness and matter modelling I relate all three of these phenomena to my concept of a primordial [absolute] awareness. [Also see A seven point guide to the day to day workings of reality] The Bohm hypothesis is that space-time reality is one with an implicate [curtain-like] backdrop.

I have included an article into this blog entitled “Non-commutative Geometry, the Bohm Interpretation and the Mind-Matter Relationship”. It was written by Professor Hiley. The contents scientifically relate to similar themes that I have discussed above. It is an extensive scholarly article that I feel has been primarily written for the benefit of Hiley’s peer’s. It is not easy to read. The online source of the essay can be found here.

I have copied and pasted certain extracts from Hiley’s essay and they appear below. I will not attempt to explain each quote. My reason for posting these quotes today is that I feel that you need to know that such informed work exists in the community relating to the interconnecting linkages between mind, brain, consciousness and matter processes.

As a Noetic Scientist I do not fully understand the scientific meaning of the contents of the essay. However, I believe that Hiley is saying something is seriously wrong with contemporary science modelling as it attempts to understand the fundamental relationship between minds, brains, consciousnesses and matter. Hiley seems to be offering a solution to this scientific dilemma and his solution is based upon the ideas of the late physicist David Bohm. I am developing ideas for a new blog relating to this topic.
