the quantum bandwagon
Please check out some links at http://noetic.org/ that interest you .. Take your time .. Investigate something that catches your eye .. Read my last article .. Does it seem i support conventional quantum perspective? Fictionally and spiritually the ideas are interesting but relating to physics, chemistry, and biology – conventional quantum mechanics has nothing to do with reality.
The central thesis of conventional quantum mechanics is: particles are probability waves with forces between them mediated by virtual bosons (bosons are theoretical constructs convention has determined, via 10 decades of applying reduction, are the things that carry forces between particles including determining mass). Some interesting conversations about quantum mechanics and life-sciences are on that link above .. But to presume the assumptions of conventional quantum mechanics are going to revolutionize psychology, biology, or any other discipline borders on the need for mass institutionalization.
Yep, we’re all going crazy by trying to jump on the quantum bandwagon.
In the first place, bosons were arrived at through the process of reduction: assuming all forces are mediated by particles; trying to break down all forces (or combination thereof) to particles. So to say “reduction is over-applied” (which it is) and in the same breath state “quantum mechanics can teach other disciplines how to look at things” IS LUDICROUS .. Reduction has been remarkably successful in the history of science but it is not the end-all in scientific/engineering approaches. There are other more holistic approaches in engineering-science (within convention) which i've discussed in other writings .. Conventional quantum mechanics is based on over-applied reduction.
These are hints to the true structure of reality and elementary particles .. If we need to look at things more holistically, if not all forces can be broken down to ‘farce carrying particles’ (oops did i mean force?;), then perhaps the central thesis of conventional quantum mechanics (stated above) is called into question.
.. After decades of independent research, “i” have arrived at a set of alternative perspectives which are just as plausible, spiritually uplifting, and multi-disciplinary affecting as conventional quantum mechanics with one important exception: it’s REAL. There’s nothing virtual about the theory .. In several essays, i've made a fairly strong argument the theoretical basis/approach is sound, objections turn out to be trivial, and ends up representing a whole new branch of science. (See https://www.msu.edu/~micheal/WfM.pdf for a nice summary of this.)
The way we elevate theoretical physicists (and conventional modern quantum mechanics): “Oh my goodness! Their ideas are so profound and affect every branch of science! If we could just understand them, we’d be just like god!” In the first place, by assuming they know the truth (because we don’t really understand the concepts), we elevate them. Next, we elevate them because of our admiration for their education (they must know what they’re talking about since they’re PhDs). Finally, they speak/write with authority which ‘seals the deal’ .. To recap: 1. generally, we don’t understand conventional quantum mechanics (it must be profound, right?), 2. the ‘preachers’ are all in accepted academic institutions of higher education – they must be right, right?, and 3. they say this is reality, so we must trust them, right?
1. just like anybody else, they’re concerned about job-security
2. history has shown us, authority is frequently WRONG
3. obfuscating details are just like that word – we don’t understand it!
i use that word to make a point .. Could it be that simple? After approximately 30 years of independent research and one final year of what i call ‘God inspiration’, i'm convinced it’s that simple .. Please please please please please: stop trying to jump on the quantum bandwagon. The Higgs does not exist. Virtual bosons are Fantasy. And the ‘fact’ elementary particles are probability waves is simply WRONG.
.. The course developers at http://transformationteam.net/ have jumped on the bandwagon, it seems the Noetic Institute has as well,.. It just boggles my mind – what peer pressure, fads, glitzy ‘incomprehensible’ fluff,.. – what power they have over the masses (even educated masses). It’s just so cool, seems so deeply profound, so loaded with bullshit, that i cannot keep quiet anymore ..
